Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Pressed Powder in Translucent €17.90
I've been loving using powders this year and trying new ones out. As someone who suffers from dry skin but also an oily T-zone I find it hard to find the right powder. Up until recently I was using a Catrice powder just to keep the shine at bay until I found something more suitable and ta da Physicians Formula happened. The powder & mascara were kindly sent to me for review and the powder has come up thrumps for me.
The packaging feels a little bulky but it does have the added bonus of a great mirror and space at the bottom for some cotton pads. It does come with a brush but I didn't find it any good as it was a bit harsh, and I prefer to use a buffing brush with this powder as it gives the best finish and prevents the cakey appearance. I love carrying it with me for little touch ups as the redness starts to creep through my makeup, and with one swipe my face looks refreshed and keeps the shine away. I really like that it smoothed out the lines around my eyes and there is no scent from this so no breakouts for me for once! I found this product very useful and definitely would buy again.
Organic Wear 100% Natural Lash Boosting Mascara €14.90
I absolutely adore the packaging of the Organic Wear 100% Natural Lash Boosting Mascara, it's shaped like a leaf and I've never seen anything like it before. It took me a while to get round to using this as I was having some eye problems so mascara has been off my radar for awhile. As a mammy I love anything quick and easy to get the makeup done in a flash, this really doesn't suit that lifestyle. To get the volume and length that I like from a mascara I found that I had to build up to about 3 coats of this, but it takes time due to it's lengthy drying time.
I do like the deep black colour of this mascara and the thicker brush. Another plus was that when I wore this I didn't notice any flakiness so that's always a great thing.
Keep an eye out for Physicians Formula as they roll out to pharmacies soon. All products are under €20!!!
