Perfect Summer Base Recipe From Catrice Cosmetics

Perfect Summer Base Recipe From Catrice Cosmetics

Catrice Cosmetics has one of my favourite drugstore lip products. I had few of their eyeshadow palettes, but they have been a pass for me. After I had heard amazing things about their base products, I decided to give them a go. I was intrigued by they high coverage and waterproof promises behind them. With the temperatures spiking again, having a makeup with excellent longevity is a must for me. In the spirit of the summer makeup preparations, I got myself the Lancome 24 Hour Makeup Foundation. I was speechless when it started to wear off after 3 hours. It was supposed to be ‘the next best thing’. Last week I visited the Catrice Cosmetics counter, and […]

Top Drugstore Foundation For Oily Skin

Top Drugstore Foundation For Oily Skin

What makes a perfect foundation? Each out the five drugstore foundations mentioned has something else to offer. For me shine control and durability are the primary indications of the good makeup base. If that is fulfilled, I can be more picky about the other aspects of the products. My combination to oily skin sometimes forces me to ditch the products that looked great right after the application merely because they separate on mine skin. That happened with many high priced foundations I have tried out in the past. Most of them, ended up in my sister’s makeup bag because the products were just perfect for her dry skin. Today I want to share with […]

Dior Forever Foundation Review

Dior Forever Foundation Review

More than one month ago when I waited for my friends in the shopping centre.  and just for approximately five minutes, I got inside the beauty store, and next to the Dior counter. I left with their newly released foundation. Dior Forever promises perfect makeup, everlasting wear, and pore refining effect. Quite of a promise list, isn’t it? Dior Forever This sleek glass bottle contains standard 30 ml of product. The pump doses relatively small amount of foundation. The consistency is creamy and easily blendable. I had no problems with the application whatsoever. It didn’t matter if I was using my fingertips or a makeup brush of some type, it goes smoothly and patch-free. And dear, […]

RCMA Series Favourites Palette review

RCMA Series Favourites Palette review

This brand requires no introduction… RCMA cosmetics have been in the professional makeup artists bags since 1962. It was when the  Research Council of Makeup Artists was founded by Mr Vincent J.R. Kehoe. It was only natural that we would reach to their Color Process Foundation at this stage of our grand makeup adventure. The highest colour pigment content RCMA foundations have the highest pigment-to-filler ratio on the market. With almost 50% of the pigment content, you need very little product to achieve desirable coverage. What seems to be an issue for some, and also was for us before we have decided to give this foundation a solid try-out, were […]

Spring Base Classics

Spring Base Classics

The reason why I have decided to put this two foundations together is the similarity in formula and longevity. Together with the season change, I usually go the lighter foundations. At the end of January, I decided to try out two different spring classic foundations, claimed by some to be the holy grail of the skin base makeup. Such a positive opinion of products which are on a market for a few years now was a decisive factor during the shopping. The newly available products are very often overrated by many, for I do not know what reasons. Enjoy the review!
