I have been trying out some affordable makeup products the last few months and have finally gotten around to reviewing them! Here are my thoughts on what I loved and what I won't be buying again!
L'oréal True Match
I have been meaning to try this for an age and I finally got around to it a couple of months ago. I am really enjoying it and am using it pretty much every other day. I love the shades available, the texture and the price !
I found it to be super wearable and really easy to blend. it is more of a liquid texture than a creamy one which I usually gravitate towards. The coverage is a good medium and can be built up if needed. My skin is on the dry side and this foundation gives me a really nice light dewy feel. Longevity wise it is good especially for a drugstore brand. I do tend to need to top it up coming to the end of my day but it doesn't fade in patches which is good.
Overall this is a really good foundation for the price and I will be repurchasing it!
Physicians Formula Beauty Balm Concealer
I have tried this several times over the past few months and it just hasn't wowed me. I prefer my concealers to be really creamy and this just doesn't really cut it. The coverage is quite light and it tends to sink into fine lines which meant it wasn't very buildable I'm also not a huge fan of the packaging which I know doesn't really mean anything but it's all part of the experience.
It really didn't last very long on my face and I needed to reapply throughout the day. I was gifted this at a blogger event and I won't be repurchasing this any time soon!
Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation
So many bloggers have raved about this foundation from Rimmel so I was very excited to try this foundation. I was really disappointed with this product. I just found it would not stick to my face. After a couple of hours it looked like my makeup had disappeared. It is quite a light coverage which is fine as that's the nature of the foundation but I just felt it was a bit too invisible. I will say the colour match to my skin was perfect it just didn't stay put long enough! I am used to wearing a fuller coverage product so maybe that was why I didn't like it but this product just wasn't for me.
Maybelline The Eraser Eye Concealer
This product I LOVE!! It is such a fab creamy concealed. This is an under eye concealer but I pretty much use it all over my face. It has a great finish , doesn't stick to fine lines and is really bendable. I really like the applicator sponge on top , it applies really easy and gives the perfect amount of product. Yes there is better concealers out there but this is a great drugstore concealer! I have been using this for awhile now and I will definitely be repurchasing this.
