Check Matte

I have noticed that lately I am really into trying new powders. Maybe it’s the fact that I can never find the best one that suits my needs perfectly. Well, to be honest, I have found the best one and it is a macstudio fix powder plus foundation but me being as cheap as I am after discovering online shopping and all the dupes and alternatives available I am not even close to spending that much money again for a single powder that wouldn’t last me more than a month!
Being willing to jeopardise getting a texture or colour that would not suit my complexion this time I chose the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder.

Sleek my life

I recently, well recently meaning like a month ago, decided to try the Sleek products. I have been in research of an affordable bb cream and I’ve been following a lot of british beauty bloggers (oh, how lucky you are for the prices and availability in your country you’ll never know!) and someone mentioned the Sleek bb cream. They said that it is the closest thing a western company made to the original Asian bb creams. Being massively disappointed by the Garnier one, being runny and feeling just like a tinted moisturizer really, I decided to give it a go. I’ve never heard of the brand before, my country is not the perfect destination for beauty shopping, so I just visited their website and started browsing. I found a lot of stuff that I would love to try but the pricing was not cut to my budget. However, since I was paying the ridiculous 7.99 shipping charge, which I'm happy to announce that they have reduced to 1.72 for Europe, I couldn’t resist; however, I restricted myself only to an item I really needed. I’m running out of my MAC pressed powder so I was looking for a cheaper alternative. Placed the order and crossed my fingers!
