Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation - Review

Hey guys, just wanted to review the Illamasqua Skin Base foundation for you today. I've been using this for well over a year now and I love it! I'm always switching up my base routine and trying out new foundations but this is one foundation that is a staple in my collection and I always come back to it.

I use the shade SB13 in this foundation and it is the perfect shade for me! (Just for reference - I'm NC44 in MAC foundations and use Syracuse in NARS foundations). It has a medium buildable coverage, it easily covers all my marks and redness and looks very flawless/full coverage, which is really surprising considering how lightweight this feels on my skin. I like to apply this using either a flat top buffing brush or a stippling brush, but it applies great with a blending sponge as well, so either the beauty blender or the real techniques sponge would be good to use.

Superdrug Vitamin E Facial Mist - Review

Hey Guys! Just a quick review today on the Superdrug Vitamin E facial mist, now I've been using this mist for quite a while now and I've gone through many bottles of this stuff. There's been a lot of hype around this product on instagram lately, with some people saying they love it and others saying it's causing them to break out in little bumps, so I thought I'd just throw in my own review on why I love this product and what I use it for.

When I first started using this product it was labelled as a 'Refreshing Toning Mist' but it looks like Superdrug have recently re-labelled it as a 'Hydrating Mist', not sure of the reason for the name change but it is definitely still the same product.

I like to use this before and after doing my makeup, I spray it onto my face straight after I wash it, before I apply any other skincare and let it sink into my skin and it really helps make my skin appear more dewy and hydrated. I'll then apply the rest of my skincare and do my makeup, once I've finished applying my makeup I'll spritz this all over my face again to get rid of any 'powdery-ness', it really helps settle the products into the skin, making the base makeup look less cakey and it also leaves a really dewy finish to the skin so you look extra glowy!
