Firstly, I'd like to say Happy International Women's Day to all the beauties who read my blog. And now, let's go ahead with the post. I haven't bought any beauty products for a while because I've had so many things I needed to pay for I just could't justify getting anything I didn't really need. But to be honest, I can't go too long without buying at least one product. So here is the latest.
I was previously using the MAC Studio Fix Fluid foundation and I like how it works for my skin, but then I ran out and could never find myself near a MAC counter. Finally, I stopped by on an evening out with a friend and got a replacement. If you'd like to know my thoughts on this foundation, I've got a full review here. Another product I ended up picking was the MAC Blot Pressed Powder. The story behind this product is extremely long so I'll spare you the details and just say my friend had to return a product for me and there was a difference in price, so I had to come up with something. I read some reviews and this seemed quite nice so I wanted to give it a go.
The last beauty product I got was the Inglot Mattifying Under Makeup Base because I was running out of my beloved Rimmel Stay Matte Primer and I wanted to try something new which would help keep my makeup in place since my skin has been a lot oiler lately and the Rimmel primer just isn't handling it as well. I tried a sample of the Inglot Mattifying Primer and since it was working pretty well I decided to get the full sized product. I haven't tested it out properly since I only had a few days worth, but I'll have a review up later.
My friend gave me some products for my birthday which she got from an afro shop close to her place. So last week, we went to check out what they had and I was extremely happy when I saw that they had Shea Moisture. I got a bit crazed as I've been looking for a store which sells these for quite a while, so I was torn between which product to pick. They are pretty expensive at € 15 each so I knew I had to limit myself to maximum 2 products. In the end, I decided to try the Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow & Restore Leave-in Conditioner and the Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie since these are extremely popular and everyone seems to love them. They both smell amazing, but I've only tried the leave-in and I really like it.
