Primark PS Makeup Workout Range Review


Hey Whisperers,

As most of you know i am obsessed with Primark, over the past year I've done a few Primark makeup posts and so when i saw that they had a new 'work out' range i knew i had to give it a try. Now I'm not going to lie i rarely work out so i have tested their longevity out by seeing how they lasted in the recent storm that we had in the UK (yes Doris I'm talking about you) and how they lasted in general. I hope you enjoy the post!

PS... Workout 


From what i have seen online the range consists of a foundation stick, lip balm, lip liner, liquid lipstick, eyeliner, mascara and setting spray, all ranging in price from £1 to £2.50 which is pretty much amazing for the products. Out of the range i have the setting spray, mascara and a liquid lipstick all of which are £2. I have tried quite a bit of the PS makeup range and i do have some loves so i was hoping that some of these products would become staples in my makeup collection too.


£2.00

The first thing i have to say about this product, and most of the range is that i love the packaging. I have never seen a mascara packaged this way but i actually really like it, the squeeze tube makes it easy to judge how much product is left and the colours make it look so simple yet cute. Now this mascara itself is not my favourite, honestly i don't think it really does much for my lashes apart from making them darker. However, it doesn't clump and it is definitely waterproof, over the past few weeks I've been using it as a 'top coat' for my other mascaras and it has helped them stay put all day which i love. If you can't find a waterproof mascara that you love i definitely recommend trying this one as a 'top coat' to make your favourite mascara water proof.


£2.00

Alike the mascara this liquid lipstick comes in the squeeze tube that i love. As you can see the writing and line on this product is pink instead of blue which i think a cute touch. Now this liquid lipstick is probably the most thin yet pigmented liquid lipstick i own and i am obsessed with it. It doesn't dry out my lips instead it feels as if i have nothing on them at all. This lipstick claims to be long lasting and i 100% agree that it is, it even lasted through me brushing my teeth (don't ask it was just one of those days) and came out looking as perfect as when i put it on. It's definitely become one of my all time favourite liquid lipsticks. The colour of this lipstick is pretty much one of my favourite colours too, it's a mix between a brown and a nude and I'm obsessed.



PS... Workout Fix Up Setting Spray
£2.00

For £2 i couldn't leave this behind. I've pretty much been using this spray for the past few weeks and honestly, it seems to do the job. I have pretty oily skin but this spray seems to keep it at bay. The 'nozzle' creates the perfect mist of spray and it dries pretty fast. Now although i do love all those things about it i do definitely hate the smell, i don't know what it is about this spray but it just has a really odd smell, kind of like hairspray. I know that smell puts a lot of people off products so i thought i would let you guys know but apart from that it seems pretty good for £2.

Applicators

I know that applicators are a big thing for some people when it comes to Mascaras and Lipsticks so i thought i would show you both of the applicators too. 


As you can see the mascara pretty much has the basic mascara wand. The wand doesn't collect too much product so it's perfect for using it as a top coat like i do. 


Alike most other liquid lipsticks this one also has a do-fut applicator. Honestly, for £2 i was expecting it to be quite hard and scratchy but it's super soft and rivals some of my higher end liquid lipsticks. I think that this applicator is perfect for this packaging too as it means that you'll be able to get the most out of the product. 

Overall I'm pretty impressed by the PS... Workout range, i definitely want to try more products from this range as so far they've been amazing quality for the price!


I hope you've enjoyed today's post

My Makeup Collection - Setting Powders




Hey Whisperers,

This weeks makeup collection is going to be my setting powders. Over the years I've tried my fair share of powders but i haven't really fallen in love with any like i have with the ones that i have in my collection now. So i hope you enjoy.

My Makeup Collection - Setting Powders


The first powder in my collection is my Mac Studio Fix powder. I first brought this powder a year ago and i got it a shade too dark so i recently purchased a lighter shade and I'm in love. Now don't get me wrong I'm not saying that this powder does something incredible to my face apart from adding a little more coverage, but i do love how my makeup looks layered with it. It is quite pricey costing £23.50 but i do think that it is worth it.


I'm pretty sure that everyone and their mom has heard about this powder, it is of course the Rimmel Stay Matte powder. This powder has been a staple in my makeup collection and i mean for the price of  £3.99 can anything really beat this powder? The only thing i wish that i could change about this powder is the packaging because the text wears off super fast and it breaks sooo easily.



Up next is probably my most hated powder. This is the Avon Calming Effects Loose Powder Foundation, now i can't really 'review' the powder as you can probably tell from the picture that it is 10 shades too dark for my skin...despite being the lightest shade aka Ivory. I wasn't aware that ivory meant lightly toasted Doritos dust. All i use this for now is to set practise SF looks, but i definitely don't recommend it if you're a pale ass ghost like me.


Last but not least is the Avon Magix HD Finishing Powder. I absolutely love this powder, it is a loose powder but it sets my under eyes like an absolute dream. Apart from the previous Avon powder this is the only loose powder I've owned and it has definitely made me want to buy more. It also isn't too expensive as it is only £10.50 but is often on offer like it is right now for £6.50. 

I feel like powders are one of those things you find, try, love and stick too instead of buying and trying a bunch. I don't see my collection of them growing much soon but i thought i would go through them because no makeup collection is complete without them!

I hope you enjoyed this post!

Avon Lipsticks - Product Review



Hey Whisperers,

The other day i was watching JustJodes do a Testing Avon Makeup video (watch that video here) and i realised that i have quite a few products from Avon myself. I haven't seen many Avon reviews out there so i thought that today i would do a review of some of their lipsticks for you guys. As always, i hope you enjoy this post and don't forget to subscribe to my blog at the bottom of the page or on Bloglovin' here.

Packaging 

One thing i love most about the Avon lipsticks is their packaging, it is so sleek and elegant. The six lipsticks I'm talking about today all have square packaging with rounded edges and either a silver or black banner around them with Avon on. I don't know what it is with plain packaging but i just love it. Considering how affordable these lipsticks are the packaging is also quite good, it isn't at all flimsy or cheap feeling which honestly was what i was expecting. The square packaging also makes them so easy to store and they lie flat or stand easily.

Shades 

So for this post i thought that i would choose 3 nude shades and 3 more deep shades just so i could show you guys a variety. I also chose both matte, shimmer and glossy. I did try to find links to all of these on the Avon website but i unfortunately could only find a link to one as i think some of the other shades may have been discontinued, they do however have a huge range of shades so I'm sure that you will be able to find a shade you like on the website, check out their lipstick range here.

The shades i have are:

Avon Ultra Colour Rich Lipstick in Latte 
Avon Ultra Colour Rich Lipstick in Naturally Nude 
Avon Ultra Colour Rich Lipstick in Sparkling Nude 
Avon Ultra Colour Perfectly Matte in  Matte Grape 
Avon Ultra Colour Perfectly Matte Matte Mauve 
Avon Ultra  Colour Perfectly Matte Superb Wine 

Swatches and Review

Living Bold
Top to Bottom:
Superb Wine
Matte Mauve
Matte Grape
As all of these shades are matte i was expecting these to be more dry however they aren't dry at all. They go onto the lips smoothly and they're super moisturising, the only one that i would say is 'dry' is Matte Grape and even that one becomes very easy and smooth to use after it warms up a little. When ordering these a few months ago i know that they said that these lipsticks are more matte than the Mac matte lipsticks and as an owner of both i do have to agree, they're amazing. All of these shades are super pigmented too, they're all opaque and look amazing. I do recommend using a lip liner with these though as they do bleed into the skin. These also aren't transfer proof so you do have to reapply them.


The Nudes
Top to Bottom: 
Naturally Nude
Sparkling Nude
Latte
 Over the past few months I've been loving my nude shades a lot more however these definitely aren't my favourites.Now i am a pale girl, like hella pale, but even on my lips Naturally Nude and Sparkling nude just end up looking like i have taken my beauty blender and just blended my foundation straight over my lips, which sucks. However, Latte is a few shades darker and in turn is the perfect nude shade. All of these lipsticks have a good amount of pigment and they're all super creamy and comfortable to wear. I will probably just be keeping the first two for SFX looks though because they definitely aren't a day to day colour, not for me at least. 

Overall Thoughts

Overall i think that the Avon lipsticks are a great choice. I'm not in love with their regular glossy and sparkling shades but their matte shades are amazing and i definitely recommend trying them out. I own a matte lipstick from Mac and it is so dry and hard to apply but these lipsticks are incredible and the pigmentation is amazing! To try out the matte lipsticks click here where they're currently on offer for just £5.50 each!.

I hope you've enjoyed today's post!

My Makeup Collection - Concealers


Hey Whispers,

It's that time of week again where i go through another section of my makeup collection. This weeks section is concealers. I haven't tried out too man different concealers but i do have a few in my collection that i absolutely love. I hope you enjoy the post and if you do don't forget to follow the blog  at the bottom of the page or here on Bloglovin'.

My Makeup Collection - Concealers



First up is the only concealer palette that i have in my collection, this is the MUA Pro-Base Conceal and Brighten Kit. I pretty much got this concealer for the first and middle shades to cover up my blemishes, it isn't the best of concealers but it does the job and for £4 it's not too bad. They no longer sell this palette so i have linked you to the newer version of it instead.


Up next is the L'Oreal True Match Concealer Crayon  i purchased this crayon as part of a 3 for 2 deal and i had really high hopes for it but i was kind of disappointed. Although the formula is super creamy and pigmented it just looks kind of cakey, it is an amazing concealer to cover blemishes though i just personally wouldn't repurchase or recommend it.


First of all the packaging of Avon Luxe Illuminating Concealer is absolutely gorgeous. The product for me however, was anything but gorgeous. This concealer is super orange despite it being the lightest shade and its also super sheer. If you aren't a pale ass ghost like me you might be able to make it work but for me it's a no go.


I'm pretty sure that every makeup lover and their mom has heard about this concealer and it 100% lives up to the hype. The Collection Lasting Perfection concealer is my favourite concealer of all time. It isn't too thick, it's super pigmented and the shade is perfect for my skin. It's also super affordable as it only costs £4.19. 


Last up is this YCIO Luster Natural Bright highlighter. Now i know this is technically a highlighter but the shimmer in this liquid is non existent. I brought this of Wish.com for £1 and i love putting it on top of my concealer to add more brightness to my under eyes. It's super sheer so it doesn't cake up and i pretty much love it. 

Swatches

Top to Bottom-

Collection Lasting Perfection
Avon Luxe
L'Oreal True Match
YCIO Luxe
MUA Pro Base

I hope you've enjoyed this weeks look into my makeup collection!

Birchbox Unboxing - February 2017



Hey Whisperers,

It's that time of the month again when i go through what I got in this months Birchbox. If you're new to my blog and you don't know what Birchbox is first off Hello and welcome to Planet Whispers and thank you for reading and if you're new to Birchbox, Birchbox is a monthly subscription box that you receive each month with 5 products to try out. The products can range from sample size to full size and they also range in price. All products in the box can be found on the Birchbox website where the box is purchased for £12.95 each month. Anyways lets get into the post!


Birchbox Unboxing - February 2017

RRP £15.50

This Pop Beauty Eye-shadow Trio in Champagne Trio is gorgeous. Now as i have said before i do go pretty big when it comes to my eyes so I'm not sure how much use I'll get out of these shades as they are quite neutral, however they are amazing quality, they're super soft and creamy and the shades are super pigmented. I've never heard of POP Beauty before but I'm definitely going to have a look at some of their other products. This palette is a collection of a few of the shades from the full palette which i have linked in the name.

 RRP £21.00

Over the past few month's I've received so many hair care samples in these boxes that I'm pretty sure I'm set for the rest of the year. This Beaver conditioning spray claims to untangle, nourish and inject moisture into the hair so I'm definitely going to give it a try. This bottle has 50 ml of product in which is quite a generous sample so I'm going to give it a try and I'll update you guys. 


RRP £5.69

Now for most people getting a 'acne' product wouldn't be excited but for me it is. I've had problem skin for such a long time so I'm excited to try this and see if it works. It claims to help to not only heal spots without drying out the skin but also to smooth and soften the skin too, which lets be honest is never a down side. This sample isn't the largest but if it does work i will definitely be getting the full size product as it is so affordable.

RRP £29 (for 6 masks)

I am so excited for this product. If you've been here a while you'll know i absolutely love face masks whether it's a sheet mask or gel mask i am obsessed with them so when i saw this i was so excited. This mask claims to revitalise skin within minutes (a big claim) you leave it on for 25 minutes and rinse the excess product off your face. I'm going to use tonight so make sure you check out my twitter to see if i like it. 

RRP £4.99

I kept the best for last. When i saw that everyone was going to be getting a Spectrum brush this month i was super excited. I've seen their brushes all over twitter and Instagram but I've never tried any and now i have. This brush is so well made and just feels amazing, it is so soft and it blends shadows amazingly (i had to try it straight after i took the pictures), now that I've tried this brush i will definitely be ordering more.



Total RRP for this month's Box

£83.17

The price of this box is incredible. I am so happy with this months box, i know I'm going to use every product in the box especially the brush and face cream, overall i think it's been a great box this month. I do wish that the boxes would be more focused on makeup and beauty instead of hair which seems to be a constant in the boxes. I hope you've enjoyed this post.

What did you think of this months box?

My Makeup Collection - Primers


Hey Whisperers,

It's that time of week again, the time that we go through some more of my makeup collection. After posting last weeks post (thank you for all the love on that post by the way) I realised that i had completely forgot my primers so I've instead decided to post it this week. I hope you enjoy the post, if you do don't forget to leave a comment and also follow my blog at the bottom of the page!



The first primer in my collection is one i picked up on a whim, this is the Kiss Prime Of Your Life Primer. I purchased this primer from Wilkinson a few months ago because I'd ran out of my regular primer and wanted to give it a try, for £3 it isn't the worst but I've definitely tried better. It doesn't mattify the face as it says and it's definitely more greasy than smoothing. 


Up next is the L'Oreal Infallible Mattifying Base. I absolutely love this stuff, for £7.99 it is an amazing primer. I got this in a 3 for 2 deal and i have been buying it ever since. It mattifies and smooths out the face and makes me skin look so silky and smooth i love it. I also love the fact that this primer doesn't break me out as i have found that a few of these other primers do which obviously isn't a good thing. 


As you can tell by the bottle i am a big fan of this stuff, this is the Barry M Flawless Original Primer. Now although i do love this primer i do prefer the green colour correcting one more. This primer makes me skin so soft and smooth, i love it and for £5.99 it's amazing value.


This primer is probably one of my most hated primers in my collection, this is the MUA Pro-Base Moisturising Primer. I purchased this primer because i had seen online that the tea tree in it had helped some people keep their acne at bay while using it, but for me it just made me face break out into 101 spots. It feels greasy and it comes out super watery if you don't shake it for a good 2 minutes before using it for an extra £1.99 I'd rather buy the Barry M one.


This primer has quickly become my all time favourite primer, this is the, The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer. I saw this primer in a You Tube video and of course i had to order it. It is the perfect mix of silicone and lotion and it makes me skin look so blurred and flawless that i honestly can't believe it. Best of all, it's only £3.60, yep i know it's amazing. I ordered mine from Victoria Heath and i have loved it ever since. 


Next is the MUA Skin Define Hydro Primer, ok so i got this primer when i was on holiday purely because my skin was super dry from the weather and i wanted something moisturising, but this is honestly one of the worst primers I've tried. Now don't get me wrong it makes your face ''primed' but it just feels horrible to put on and it leaves your face super sticky. It feels as if you're just putting water all over your face. It doesn't really help with pores or smoothing out the skin but if you have a super dry skin it could be good for you, i just personally can't stand the feel of it. 


This probably isn't what you were expecting to see on this list, this is the Nivea Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm. I saw this in pretty much every YouTube video i watched a few months ago so of course i had to try it out for myself and honestly i quite like it. The balm not only moisturises your face but it also makes it tacky which helps the makeup stick. However, i don't recommend using this daily as the glycerin in it can block your pores and cause breakouts. 


Last but not least is the Revolution Pro Primer Aqua Priming Base. I got this in the Makeup Revolution 12 Days of Christmas Box this year and i love it. I don't know if it does much for my makeup but i love spraying it on my face before i use a gel primer to add some moisture into my skin and honestly to help wake me up. It feels amazing and it's such a great size for the price. I definitely recommend it.

All The Feels

How do the primers feel?

The Prime of Your Life primer is a silicone based primer but once squeezed out the tube it is super lumpy and greasy. 

The Infallible Base is super smooth and it's clearly silicone based as it leaves the skin feeling very soft.

The Flawless Original feels more like a  lotion, however it does leave the skin feeling quite smooth. 

The MUA Pro-Base alike the Prime of Your Life is super lumpy. watery and greasy it doesn't really sink into the skin either instead sits on top like a film.

The Original is super smooth and soft. It feels a lotion but once you start blending it turns into a more silicone feel, it leaves the skin looking super blurred.

The MUA Hydro is a weird clear jelly that feels super watery, once blended out it just feels really sticky.

The Nivea Balm is super watery but once you apply it to the face a small amount goes a long way. It leaves the face smooth but also tacky at the same time.

The Revolution Spray is super fast and easy and makes the skin feel awake and moisturised.



Those were all of my primers, i hope you've enjoyed this post. Next weeks post will be on concealers so don't forget to check in!

Happy Birthday Planet Whispers





Hey Whisperers,

One year a go today i posted my first blog post, a year a go today i started on this insane journey of becoming a blogger and it has been nothing short of amazing. I've joined twitter chats, been interviewed, worked with brands, hit 15,000 reads and  i was even nominated for an award (something i still struggle to understand), it has been incredible, but with blogging came a lot of struggles too. Don't get me wrong I've loved it all but I've definitely learnt a lot over the past year and so i thought I'd share a few things with you

What I've Learnt In My First Year Of Blogging


Some of your best friends will be those you meet through blogging.

 I can't even say how many amazing people i have met over this past year because of blogging, some of them new friends and some of them old, it has been amazing. It is hard being a blogger sometimes, being up till 2 am writing and the frustration you feel when a post isn't coming out how you want it to be is real and having someone to talk to is so important, but you'll find none-bloggers just don't get it like your blogger friends do. There's nothing like knowing you have someone there to help pick you up when you're down. To Georgia, Leanne and Leah i will always be grateful, they have both helped me so much over the past year, not only when it comes to blogging but also in my personal life to and for that i will always be grateful. 

It's OK to take a break from blogging

I'm definitely still working on this one. When i first started blogging all i wanted to do was blog and because of this i quickly ran out of ideas. I get down on myself a lot when i don't get a post up on time or when i don't write enough but it's OK to take a step back and take a little break. As many of you know i took a month or so break in September and since then i have been so much happier with my blog i feel more refreshed and i feel like i actually want to write instead of that i have to. I love blogging but i also know that it is OK to miss a post every now and then too. 

Be You

This is something else that I'm still working on. When you first start blogging it is so easy to fall into the slump of writing what you think people want to read but believe me there is way too much work and pressure when you blog that way. It is so important to be you. Although yes there are some posts that people really like to read it's so important to blog about what you want to blog about too because you'll soon start to hate your blog because you'll end up writing posts you don't like. Let your personality shine through and make your blog special because believe me as not only a blogger but also a blog obsessed reader nothing is better than blogs that are different and where you can tell the blogger is being 100% them. 

Blogging isn't easy.

Now this isn't the first blog I've ever written so i knew it wasn't going to be too easy but i definitely underestimated how much work it really took to be a blogger. You're going to go through note book after notebook of ideas yet still have writers block and you're going to re-write blog posts 5 or more times because you don't like them. But it's all going to be worth it in the end. Growing your blog is a new task all together too, you can't just post one post and expect your blog to succeed you need to post regularly and promote your blog. It takes a lot of dedication and time. 

Social Media is your best friend

Social media will help your blog get to that next level, not only does it help you promote your posts but it also allows you to interact with your readers too which is pretty much one of the most important things about blogging. Social media also allows you to venture into the blogging community something which i have found to be nothing less of incredible. I highly recommend setting up a twitter page if you're new to blogging and joining in twitter chats (link to a list of my favourite ones here). Twitter chats not only help you promote your blog but they also help you meet other bloggers like you. 

Looks matter

Now I'm not saying you have to rush out and pay for blog themes and get a self hosted domain but design does matter. I'm not a designer, I'm far from it but i want my blog to look put together and professional and it is always a work in progress.  When i first started blogging all my posts were plain with little to no images or links but I've since learnt that visual aids are so important in posts to make them appeal to readers and to also help keep your blog consistent, there are so many sites out there that have amazing themes that you can download and use for free, it just makes your blog that little bit more you.

Happy Birthday Planet Whispers. It's been a incredible, amazing, insane roller-coaster of a ride and i can't wait for whats to come.

Love,

My Makeup Collection - Foundations




Hey Whisperers,

Over the past few weeks I've been organising and sorting out all of my makeup and so i thought that now i have it all organised  i would show you it all. These posts are not at all  me bragging i just love reading about other peoples makeup collections and seeing what they have so i thought it would be fun for me to do too. I do have a lot makeup and i am extremely grateful for what i have, because of this however i will only be doing one topic a week or the posts would just end up never ending. I hope you enjoy this series, this weeks post is on foundations


Foundations

The first foundation in my collection is the L'Oreal Infallible 24H-Matte foundation. I only got this foundation a few weeks ago when i ran out of my regular foundation and i love it. It has great coverage and it kept my skin looking matte and smooth for hours. I have super oily skin so most foundations don't keep my skin looking matte but this did. Something i love about this foundation is the fact that even though it's super matte it doesn't dry out your skin. It's quickly become a go to foundation for me if i want a super long wearing look. 


I'm pretty sure that every one has seen this foundation making its rounds around the Internet with beauty guru's like Zoella and Tanya Burr raving about it, this is of course the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation I pretty much brought this foundation because of Zoella but honestly, it isn't one of my favourites. It doesn't have enough coverage for me and even the lightest shade doesn't match my skin unless I'm tanned which kind of sucks. It does however give your skin a beautiful 'awake' and dewy look which is nice when I'm tanned. 


Up next is the B. Youthful foundation, now i pretty much have this in my collection because i can't bring myself to throw it away. I brought this in a sale online, i went for the lightest shade which on the website looked super light but when it arrived it's pretty much 5 shades too dark. I've been holding onto it because i can't make myself throw away a full bottle of foundation, even though it doesn't match. This foundation has also been discontinued since i purchased it so i unfortunately can't link it for you.


This is the Avon Luxe Silk Foundation, i brought this quite a while a go and for a few weeks it was my go to foundation but just like most other foundations as soon as my tan faded it was way too dark. Now I've tried and fell in love with  a few other foundations. i can however say that this foundation is super thick but it does have amazing coverage. I do recommend it if you aren't ghostly pale like me but it is super thick.


You guys have heard me talk about this foundation more than once, this is the L'Oreal True Match foundation and it is my all time favourite foundation, which explains why i have 3 in my collection. It has amazing coverage, it is the perfect shade for my skin, it blends like a dream. It's pretty much perfect. If you're looking for a easy to blend, medium/full coverage  foundation make sure to check this one out, it comes in 23 shades which cover 93% of skin tones!


The Miss Sporty So Matte Perfect Stay is such an oldie but a goody in my collection. I originally brought this foundation for myself but like always i can't wear it unless I'm more tan so i instead used it on a friend to do SFX Makeup. The coverage on this foundation is pretty decent and it blends into the skin amazingly, however it does set pretty fast so you don't have much time to blend it out. I've pretty much kept it because i use it to try out new SFX looks during the Halloween season and for £3.49 it's worth it.


The Maybelline Superstay 24Hr foundation used to be one of my daily foundations, as you can tell this one is a bit old as it now has a completely new packaging but I've been keeping it just so i don't forget the shade. This foundation is great for oily skin as it does dry down to be a pretty matte feel, it is however quite thick so if you don't like thick foundations this probably won't be for you.


Alike the previous foundation the Maybelline Superstay Better Skin also used to be one of my favourite foundations however it does run quite dark so even the lightest shade is a little too dark for me. It has great coverage and it blends amazingly, however it is definitely not a build able foundation as after 2 layers it looks super cakey.


This is another cult favourite, the Mac Studio Fix Fluid Foundation. I don't really know how i feel about this foundation as I've only used it a couple of times however, i do know that it is a super thick foundation to apply. I applied it on my face next to my L'Oreal True Match and it has a lot less coverage but it was a lot more matte and it felt way smoother. A little of this product also goes a long way so hopefully after I've tried it out a little more I'll be able to let you guys know how i feel about it more. 


Storage


If you've been here a while you will know that i have the IKEA 9 Alex Drawers to store all of my makeup and my foundations occupy the top drawer. I keep my most used and largest foundations on the left hand side of my drawer and i keep the rest of my 'less used' foundations in a grey basket at the back of the drawer to keep it all organised. 

After a lot of organising those where my foundations. I also have a few BB creams in the back of my drawer which i pretty much never use unless I'm doing SFX makeup so i chose not to include them, I hope that you have enjoyed the first instalment in my makeup collection series! 

What's your go to foundation? Let me know in the comments down below.

Thanks For Reading,
Love,
