MACLOViN'

Matching your foundation is pretty hard to master at the best of times. For me it is even more so, being mixed race means that up until a while ago I had to spend an absolute fortune on foundation from MAC , just to ensure it matched my skin! Now thanks to the likes or L'oreal and Sleek its a little easier for people with darker skintones to get makeup at a more affordable price, so those are the brands I use day to day! However, I do use Mineralize skinfinish daily...and sometimes hourly haha! I absolutely loveee this product. If you havent tried it, TRY IT!! So this is just a small MAC haul that I treated myself to, as party season is on its way!! Studio Sculpt £24.50, Mineralize Skinfinish £21.00 & FROU £14.00. Studio Sculpt gives amazing coverage, I like to use this on nights out or special occasions! The tube lasts me up to a year as I dont waste it on everyday wear! Mineralize Skinfinish, these compacts probably last me around 6 months sometimes less, but I do literally rely on this product everyday, and I ALWAYS have it with me. Frou lipstick was the first nude lipstick I ever tried from MAC, which I instantly fell in love with, its a repeat offender in my makeup bag! A great shimmery frosty nude. Alot of people ask me what nude lipstick I'm wearing, and the easiest answer is, Its always MAC, any of their nude shades are beautiful! Do you find it hard to match your foundations?  p.s Happy Friday :)

  1. I love the title of this post! My skin is the polar opposite to yours although I still find it hard to match my foundation as my skin is very pale.. but not the most pale shade that Revlon, L'Oreal etc offer. I use a revlon liquid base and then treat myself to the MAC studio fix powder to match the color better xx

  6. Yes, I find it so hard matching foundation! My skin is so pale that foundation either doesn't make me look like I'm wearing any or makes me look like I'm wearing it too dark, it's a battle! Haha :) I will have to check this foundation out though!

  20. I always have such a tough time finding a good colour foundation - I'm extremely pale, but have a Mediterranean complexion, so it's a lot more 'yellow-based' than most foundations for pale girls - a complete nightmare!
    Ahh your mini-haul was totally justified for the party season ha xx

  27. Haha, so in love with the title of this post! I need a new foundation to try, next pay day I might splash out on the "Mineralize Skinfinish"! xx

  28. That lipstick looks gorgeous!

    I need to try MAC again, I find it hard to get a foundation that matches my skin well for some bizarre reason the top half of my face tans better than the bottom half of my face so my forehead is always darker than my chin so I either end up being matched with a foundation that's far too pale or looks a bit yellow-y.

  30. I've never tried Studio Sculpt but heard a million and one good things about it, what type of skin do you have? I have dry/combination skin so I'm trying to work out whether it will work for me or not! Also I've been DYING to get MSF for ages :)

  31. I've not tried MAC foundation before as I didn't know much about it and was worried I'd buy it and hate it. May have to give it a try though! I love Nars Tinted Moisturiser for everyday though!
