Nude by Nature $19.95 || Priceline

This BB Cream is honestly the only BB cream I have used for the past 2-3 years, I have not tried out any other BB creams or foundations during this time. It’s because this cream I find fits perfectly for me, in terms of hydration, coverage, application and how light it feels. If you can suggest any other creams like this, please do! Though this cream doesn’t really control my oils, my face does get shiny after a good 6+ hour, it doesn’t slide off my face. So I don’t need to constantly re-apply. Also, it has added protected sunscreen! This bottle will definitely last you for a good 4-5 months and a little does go a long way.

Nude Pressed Mattifying Mineral Veil

1424581184964_resized

$29.95 – I got it down to $20.83 because of Priceline’s awesome loyalty discounts! 

I just love the Nude By Nature line, naturally made within Australia and is great for sensitive skin types. Mine tends to go onion-skin-like, when it’s scratched and when it gets too much direct heat it gets dry. This mattifying mineral, though I have just been using it for less than a week, has not caused me any break-outs and it’s translucent veil gives my foundation a natural cover.

Cased in a brown mesh-like cover, the powder is contained in a plastic case and a sponge is provided. The line goes by a brown theme, all various tones, that illustrates a natural vibe

It claims to be “long-lasting” but for me it’s semi, because I have oily skin! At the start it gives me a smooth and flawless base, but during the later half of the day it does not absorb my oil and “controls shine”. Maybe I need another powder that would be stronger, so I wouldn’t recommend this product for someone on the more oily side. It is beautifully light weight and has great ingredients like Vitamin E and Cehami extract.

 I really don’t mind using this product, maybe I just need to top myself off with some powder again during the day after I blot my face down, because not only does it smell okay but I love the silk, light-weight feel and how it doesn’t cause me any break-outs.

BB 5-IN-1 MIRACLE CREAM 50ML $19.95

For the past months I have been using Face of Australia Tinted Moisturiser and wanted switch to a BB Cream. I’ve been trying to find a perfect one, that has great coverage, was not heavy on the skin and blended well on my skin. Which this BB cream does beautifully! It is blended with natural sunscreen, that does not make you look ghost white and gives you protection against the sun. It also hydrates, corrects, perfects, protects and provides a natural radiance , softening your skin.

Comes in Light, Medium and Dark.

UNDERCOVER AIRBRUSH PRIMER 50ML $29.95

I’m not a makeup guru, so I’ve been asking around what the steps are to apply makeup and I heard that you firstly should put primer on your face, to give your makeup a long-lasting application. This primer, not only does it smell sweet, it is also very light-weight and helps lock your pores. The main ingredients used are papaw, vitamin E and green tea that nourishes and protects your skin. I’m in love with this primer!

MAYBELLINE MASTER PRECISE LIQUID EYELINER $8.45

I wanted to buy a new eyeliner, that was waterproof because the other one I was using kept smudging. Easy grip, with an ultra-fine 0.4mm brush tip, which I was surprised to see as I’ve been using a much larger brush. The thin brush was so much easier to use and allowed more creativity when using it. Though the only downfall I would say is that, it does not last very long.
