for my birthday in march, i got a debenhams gift card off my boyfriend, and last month i decided to put it to good use and buy a decent foundation and concealer! i had a really big mooch around the debenhams website, and read almost every review to find the perfect ones. i will be doing some little reviews on what i purchased in the next week or so, but for now this is what i ended up purchasing:
the whole lot!
illamasqua rich liquid foundation | £21.50
it took me so long to decide between this and the skinbase foundation, but in the end i went for a fuller coverage foundation that i can always adjust with a little moisturizer if it’s too heavy
shade 115 (surprisingly not the palest!)
it looks alot darker and orange in the tube, but i’ll be doing a review and swatches soon
mac studio finish concealer | £13.50
i needed a creamy concealer that wouldn’t dry or cake around my eyes. i was debating whether i should get this one or the studio sculpt, and when studio sculpt wasn’t in stock in my shade i cried a little, but ended up getting this one anyway
shade nc15 (the photo looked clear when i took it, haha…)
it looks a little orange but applies alot lighter!
mac mineralize skinfinish ‘highlighter’ | £21.50 (it isn’t on the website anymore, boo)
this wasn’t a product i planned on buying, but when i saw it i thought i have to give it a go. i think it’s classed as a blush? i’m not sure. but i bought it to use as a highlighter
it was pretty difficult to photograph, but it has lots of lovely shimmers and beautiful pastel veining in real life…
