MAC studio fix line review

I’ve been wanting to try MAC’s makeup line for quite some time now. While browsing their website I found that studio fix fluid fond de teint was the makeup that would fit best my criteria.
I began using the makeup and the powder plus foundation in the middle of August. I instantly noticed how easily I could apply it and of course how well it would last for many hours! At first I got the C4,5 which is a bit dark,as my skin was still suntanned! Now I use the C3,5 and usually mixing it a bit with the old one to create a more natural color!
I have to tell you that for me this line can only be compared to the Dermablend line from Vichy! From all the makeups I’ve tried over the years these two are the only ones that provide good coverage but also benefit the skin as they don’t damage it at all!

Essence nudes collection

Now this is a brand worth checking! My sister introduced me to Essence products as she swears by their mascara (link old post). Until recently I hadn’t tried any other of their products but a week ago I decided to try their new “nude” line. I bought nail polishes,eye shadows,lipsticks and blushes. I couldn’t be happier!!

The nail polishes were so easy to apply and it only took few minutes to dry. I also found impressive the fact that despite my heavy schedule and the carrying I do all the time the color stayed on no matter what!
The eye shadows are to die for!! Im definitely the simple/natural makeup kinda girl so I hit the jackpot with these! I usually apply the lighter one in the entire eyecup and then I use some of the darker one near the roots of my lashes. It creates a natural effect,kind like how Leighton Miser looked like when waking up on Gossip Girl!
I absolutely love the brush too cause this particular shade is adorable for summer and it would look even better later on this summer when I’ll be more tanned! the lipsticks are amazing and the result is sooo natural!

BB cream – crash test!

You all know what a BB cream is. It’s been a trend for the past 3 years in several variations in texture,color and of course price.
A BB cream is mainly a day cream with suntan lotion (usually SPF 15 up to 30). So the idea is that your cream can have a certain makeup coverage,just to reduce any red spots and evens its color,brighten it and of course have all the benefits that a daily cream has!
It is not a makeup,so you need to remember that when buying one. If your skin needs more coverage then you shouldn’t be buying a BB cream cause it won’t have any results. But since summer is almost here you should definitely check some of the best BB creams for your daily vacation looks,when you need to feel and of course be more natural and free!
