The search for the perfect, easy to apply, long lasting, affordable make up continues!
Switching to cruelty free products a white ago, it helped me focus on a few key brands.
This week’s focus was on two great buys from Penneys!
I generally apply foundation or BB Cream with my hands to avoid missing some bits.
But I went absolutely wild today and flung on the makeup with a good old fashioned make up brush!
The foundation gives a lovely light coverage and is extremely easy to apply!
I tested it without a Matt primer to get a good feel for it!
And great news it lasted all day! Something I didn’t expect in this sweltering heat with my oily skin!
During this epic exppoditiom to find the perfect war paint my magpie eye was drawn to the shiney shiney essence stand! Where I found this stunning Metal Shock Lip Paint! Yep, lip Paint!
It’s definitely not 100 Percent VIP friendly but it’s so shiney!!
The good news is, it stays on your lips when it’s applied, unlike some other brands that like to wander around your chin and upper lip for the lols!
That said, despite the paint being super pretty, it doesn’t dry and hold like traditional paint (jmagine), leaving your cup and or fork looking somewhat similar to a disco ball!
It’s a huge thumbs up for the Flormar Foundation but a VIP no to the shiney stuff from Essence!
Although it is worth mentioning that for the price of the essence lip Paint, it’s a good enough product!
