JANUARY LOW BUY RE-CAP FT MAKEUP REVOLUTION CONCEAL & DEFINE FOUNDATION & L'OREAL LASH PARADISE


I mentioned in my last post (read here) that I am doing a no/low buy this year because I have far too much makeup relative to how much makeup I actually wear. Just to be clear, guys, this is not a review post. I will have in-depth reviews on both of these with before and after photos so you can really see how it looks. This post is dedicated to why I bought them and how my no buy or low buy is going to play out. I was inspired by a lot of bloggers and mostly just noticed how flippantly I purchase makeup, I have so many eyeshadow palettes and once bought they usually remain unused after a week or so of excitement and that's just not who I want to be anymore. I have so many great products that really deserve to be used. Without further ado, here is how the Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Foundation* and L'Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara made it into my shopping basket in the month of January. You will be pleased to hear so far eight days into the month of Feb and I have not bought any makeup. So far so good. 


As a proud owner of the Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer* (C10) which I truly enjoy, I wasn't that excited about the Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Foundation*. I watched Nikkia Joy's wear test on it and was left less than impressed, Nikkia, with her beautiful Australian accent, has oily skin like myself so I do trust her reviews and really appreciate her thorough wear tests with close-ups that get right in there. In fact, I just watched her Morphe Fluidity Foundation Review this morning on my way to work. It was actually a different YouTuber than I started watching recently that convinced me to buy it and that is Casey Holmes, a fellow oily skin queen. The shade I purchased was F10.5 - for medium skin tones with a warm golden undertone (this is my perfect summer shade, and in winter I am able to lighten it with concealer), it is described as a "full coverage foundation" with a lightweight but creamy and buildable formula that is oil-free and provides a demi-matte finish. It s also vegan and cruelty free


Genuinely surprised by how much I like the applicator which is like an oversized concealer wand. I usually pump foundation out on my hand or my brush/sponge but with this applicator I can just plonk it on my face which wastes a lot less product. Unfortunately, for me this also means I often overestimate how much I actually need and end up with more coverage than I intended. Overall, I have used this foundation approximately five or six times and I have mixed feelings so far. I think it feels like I am wearing foundation but this might be due to how much I apply and in the following week I am going to play around with it further with different base products as well. The packaging, the shades and the coverage are all wins for me and I do like the finish so I have high hopes. I do wear makeup for over ten hours some days though so a longwearing formula is what I am really looking for when it comes to foundation, that looks pretty all day. Stay tuned. 


The L'Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara, no bones about it, I like it a lot. The packaging is beautiful, the formula is lovely. The way I apply mascara is to curl my lashes well and wipe as much off my wand as possible so I really only go in with very little, this is because not only is it so much easier to remove but it lasts a lot better throughout the day especially on rainy windy days there is no smudging, smearing or weird flecks on random parts of the face. I like this mascara a lot so far. The formula is a little wet, but that doesn't make much difference to me as I wipe most of it off, and the brush is a little big and not as defined as I would like. So although so far I enjoy using it, I wouldn't consider it my all time favourite. I really want to try the Max Factor Clump Defy Volume Mascara


Thank you so much for reading, I am pleased that the two products I purchased were both affordable or "drugstore", I purchased a mascara because I needed an every day mascara for work, normally I never wear mascara but I am still in that phase when I want to look like I care ya know. Hope you are having a fabulous weekend. There have been several new releases, but I actually want to try and create some Valentine's Day Makeup Looks, so hopefully that will be the focus of next week, and there is one release that I am keen to discuss as I have a lot of opinions on it. Please let me know what you purchased this month in a comment below. Thank you. Take care. 

What did you buy this January?
