MAC Studio Face And Body Foundation.

mac studio face and body foundation

Today, I’m going to talk about a product that is totally essential for an everyday makeup look and I’m pretty sure you have guessed it right and yes, of course, it is foundation. Plus, as we are residing in winter cold months, we can’t rely on just tinted moisturisers or BB cream alone just like in summer and for winter months, an ideal base needs to give a perfect coverage and a good foundation alone can give a quintessential answer to this query and my latest find on this category is MAC Studio Face And Body Foundation and so, let me get straight into its exquisite features which standout as a monopoly from its peer competitors and so, stay tuned!

First of all, the product is from MAC and so, we always have some positive expectations about their products as they deliver high quality makeup without a fail and this product is not in exception either as it works brilliantly well and ticks all the boxes of formulation, texture, consistency, application, coverage and many more.

MAC always keeps their packaging nice and simple and it comes along with a squeezable bottle with a pointed hole to the top where the formula is easy to dispense and so, you can have a control on how much to dispense for each use and the bottle is covered up by a sturdy black top and overall, a very effective packaging.

Formulation is the key to any foundation and Mac has literally nailed it with their amazing light weight formula which is very comfortable to use and the fluid consistency is ideal to work along with either beauty blender or foundation brush and furthermore, what makes this product to be even more special is, it comes along with added emollients which brings out a perfect moisturisation while you wear. Moreover, it gives a low to medium coverage which brings in its versatility as an everyday use and so, if you are looking for a natural and sheer finish look, then this is the perfect choice for you. Also, it is available in 13 shades which gives you a good selection of fair, medium to dark skin. Besides, the formula also promises a long-lasting staying power and ideal to use on all kinds of skin types and what else could you ask for, isn’t it? So, all-in-all, it gives a perfect, complete, non-cake-y foundation and satin finish look.

Review:Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil.

 

urban decay 24/7 glide-on eye pencil

Are you a great fan of eye pencils? And, to be honest,  I’m not as good as Kim Kardashian who uses literally 3 different kinds of eyeliner every single day to finish an eye makeup look that needs so much patience and effort – really commendable, isn’t it? But still, I love my go-to eye makeup look and also, always on a hunt to try some good finds here and there. Moreover, as you might have guessed, yes, today I will be guiding through an eye product from an amazing brand, which is none-other-than, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil that is suitable to wear on all occasions. So, stay tuned girls!!!

These versatile, travel-friendly, waterproof eye pencils are easy to use and as the name says, it literally glides onto your eyes with a creamy texture and we all know, when it comes to eye pencils, black and brown shades are quiet wearable neutrals but instead, this stunning set consists of other favourites like silvery white, metallic copper and edgy deep brown. Plus, on the other hand with budge free consistency of the formula is so easy to apply just on its own or some blend actions as well.

It’s packaging comes along with a silvery finished top and bottom and the rest explains the actual colour of the pencil and so, it is clearly visible on what to choose and for which occasion to wear. Plus, the silver coated calligraphic finish of name and brand details brings in the exclusive note of high-end detail.

Now, let’s talk about technology that too in terms of beauty. So, for me, if I’m using a high-end product, I always look for the special ingredients that makes it as a wise buy and I should say, UD has never left a stone unturned as each 24/7 glide-on eye pencils are packed with 50% moisturising ingredients that are suspended by a water proof formula and doesn’t it sound amazing? And, here comes one more reason to use these highly innovative pencils as they are vegan friendly – yes girls, you’ve heard it right. To finish off, just like icing on the cake, these pencils are nourishingly packed with cottonseed oil, jojoba oil and Vitamin E. Well, what more can you ask for, isn’t it?

Whether it is a winged eyeliner or an ever classic smokey eye effect, eye pencils are a must-have staple as you can literally line either right above the upper lashes are bring some drama on the lower lash line and whatever it may be, these pencils gives you an assurance of smoothly defined steaks of lines. Now, for more innovative approach – why not try the current trending graphic eyeliner? And, one great example is pictured below.

Nice to see bright sunshine coming out today after a fiery storm with hailstones poured out yesterday and I hope you are having a much settled weather on your side. On the other hand, I have been extremely busy at work but still managed to find couple of high end staples which was on my bucket list for a while. Hurray! It feels like christmas has come early. Viola! Plus, I love these latest beauty buys as they are all from great brands like MAC, Clinique, Estee Lauder and The Body Shop and surprisingly, I made a sensible variation of buys from skincare to makeup too. So, stay tuned to see what is in-store for.

Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator:

I’m so glad that I have finally found a super intense moisturising skincare product that brings in an unbelievable hydration to my skin all day long that is 24 hours promising moisture retention – WOW! Doesn’t it sound amazing? Additionally, it has become a firm staple on my skincare regime which I carry out every morning and evening. All-in-all, my skin felt much happier than ever before and even plumped up really well as a healthy, balanced looking skin. It retails at £34 for 75ml and little goes long way and I think one can’t go wrong with it.

Always remember to **CLICK HERE** to find out my love for other Clinique skincare products.

MAC Cosmetics Rebel Lipstick:

If one high end lipstick that is a must-have staple for this season, then it has to be MAC Rebel and oh my! The colour looks so ravishingly beautiful and if you have a love affair with plum or berry shade, then it is a definite buy and while using, it swipes on your lips gorgeously well and leaving your lips with luscious tint of crushed berries. Besides, the quintessential creamy consistency of the lipstick is amazingly good and its texture works out extremely good on all kinds of skin type as I have seen most popular celebrities like Rhianna and Kim Kardashian wearing this and it looked so elegant. Lastly, it trades around just £15.50, which is a well worthy buy.

Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Lifting Volume Mascara:

If one staple in the makeup world that you can’t without it, then it should be a mascara and finding a good, quality mascara is another great challenge and I always love mascaras from Estee Lauder as it is reliable and trust worthy to use that will keep you calm and relaxed for next 3 months with complete peace of mind and one great example for this is, Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Lifting Volume Mascara. It brings in effortless curl, lift and weightless volume instantly. In addition, with 5 star rating and an amazing value of just £21, to be honest, it is always a wise buy.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Mattifying Toner:

Toner is a much needed product if you want a healthier and clearer skin as it mattifies and cleanses your skin multi times better and such great find is The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Mattifying Toner. I really love the infusion of tea tree oil from Mount Kenya in it as it brings in a nourishing element at the same time while cleansing which I think as a great bonus as it meanwhile soothes your skin too. All put together, it makes your skin to feel tighter pores, visibly looking clearer skin and finally, brings in shine to your skin as well. Score! Plus, with just £5.50 for 100ml, it is a definite winner as it certainly gives a long lasting mileage.

Review: OZ Naturals 2.5% Retinol Serum.

oz_retinol

Image Source: oznaturals.com

Firstly, I would like to thank BrandBacker and OZ Naturals to give me this opportunity to review this product. Moreover, if you are a regular reader of my blog you might have read about two of the products that I have worked along with OZ Naturals before which is namely, OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Moisturising serum and OZ Naturals SPF 30 Tinted Sunscreen Moisturiser. So, when I was contacted by OZ Naturals again, I couldn’t decline and I gladly agreed and jumped into the chance instantly. Besides, we all know that OZ Naturals are a market leader in the field of natural skincare and they also deliver a high standard of most effective anti ageing products in the market too and hence, one can’t go wrong with their unmatchable quality and the content elements of their products as they always distribute cruelty-free, alcohol free, paraben free and sulphates free products.

Well, I should say that OZ Naturals 2.5% Retinol Serum* is a wonder product and it makes your life much easier as it gives a perfect answer to all of your hyper-pigmentation, fine wrinkles and anti-ageing problems; plus, the magical ingredients inside the serum has also proven to rejuvenate and revitalise your skin right away and it also actively leaves your skin looking much healthier and younger that also comes along with a gorgeous radiant glow too. So, now, let us get deep into the main contents of the product which is preliminarily acclaimed to contain an amazing 72% of organic components in it.

  • Retinol – This product has the highest concentration of Retinol yet it still can be purchased along with no prescription at all. This Vitamin A derivative also helps to give a healthy balance to your skin.
  • Astaxanthin – This carotenoid pigment contains super-antioxidant properties and it is also predominantly found mostly in marine sea life creatures and it is also available plentiful from micro algae too.
  • Hyaluronic Acid – This anti-ageing nutrient has so many nutritional benefits withhold in it and the first and foremost among them is, it acts as an excellent moisturiser and hence it aids to keep your skin hydrated all the time. In further, it also assists the texture of your skin to keep it soft, supple and smooth all the time and it also makes your skin nicely toned with minimised wrinkles as well.
  • Vitamin E – It contains a powerful antioxidant characteristic wherein it has the highest potential to reverse back the signs of ageing too.

Directions to use:

Previously, you already know that OZ Naturals HA moisturising serum was supplied as a squeezable dispenser whereas this Retinol Serum comes as a pump that is very handy in which case, you can have a control on what you need albeit. Moreover, this light-weight serum can be used either as a night-time or day time beauty routine and also, you need to make sure that you wear sunscreen along with this product in daytime as it contains Retinol content in it. Furthermore, it is very simple to use and apparently, start the procedure with the nicely washed and towel dried clean face. Apply this serum first on your face and neck (optional) and then, followed by a good quality moisturiser and then, finally, finish off your beauty routine with makeup on top of it. Last but not least, as it has no perfume at all, it leaves your skin with a tiny hint of barely minimal smell.

I hope you had a fabulous time in reading this post and you could also get all the information about this miraculous product right from http://www.oznaturals.com
