You know when you've been using the same foundation for a while and you feel like you want a change but you're just not too sure what to go for? Well, this was me a few weeks ago. I've always loved MAC foundations but it slowly started to creep on me that I wanted a change. I wanted something that was less thick and gave me the perfect coverage that I need - not too heavy but enough to make my skin look flawless. That's not too much to ask right?
Not only did I want a new, and better foundation I also really wanted a product that I could use underneath it to help radiant my face and give me that glow... Cue ByTerry Cellularose Brightening CC Serum. I'll talk more about that later!
So the foundation I decided to go for was the NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation. Since this has hit the shelves I've been desperate to try it so I did! I took the plunge and went for it. I went to the House of Fraser store in Bath (Jolly's) and the girl that helped me was amazing. She told me more about the foundation and applied it to my face - I was sold.
The shade I matched up to was Fiji. I personally think it's so important to get your skin matched to a foundation when buying one and it also gives you such a better feel for the product before you buy it!
I then also, finally caved and gave into buying the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. I've seen so many people using and raving about this product that I thought it was time to see what the fuss is all about. All I can say is wow.. Usually after work my make-up has worn off and it's in need of a freshen up but I can honestly say that with this concealer my under eye area has never looked so good.
I used to wear the Double Wear concealer by Estee Lauder and don't get me wrong, I still absolutely love it but I would often find that at the end of the day, my mascara had smudged under my eyes but I've got on a lot better with NARS and I really am so impressed with both of my new products. They have been welcomed into my make-up bag (or bucket) with open arms! I got shade Vanilla in this concealer. I know everyone is completely obsessed with Custard but for me it's too warm. I like my concealers to be white and brightening and I think Custard is just a little too warm for me and my skin tone.
And finally, the ByTerry Cellularose Brightening CC Serum is something that I've wanted for SO long but it is quite expensive and I've put it off for so long. Well, I got caught up in buying myself two new incredible products that I thought now was the best time, time to start afresh and really fall in love with what I apply to my skin.
It has made such an amazing difference. The CC Serum instantly brightens up my skin and it looks great underneath my make-up but it's also incredible for those days that I just don't fancy putting a full face on. It illuminates and smooths my complexion while being so light on my skin. I love it.
So with my three new beauty products and two new brands that I have fallen for there's only one thing left for me to say... I've found my dream team!
