Fab "Make-up" Finds 2

Since my last make-up review, I have bought some good product that are worth buying and some plain useless ones. I've also been searching for the best foundation out there that would serve my oily skin well, I did find some good ones but still not good enough.

Nars Oil Free Foundation

I can happily say I found the best foundation for me. This amazing foundation makes my skin look smoother and doesn't clog my pores.. I've been suffering from some breakouts recently and this foundation is not heavy on my skin and it didn't cause my skin to breakout at all. It actually covered them nicely and it didn't even seem like i had any pigmentation. It stayed longer than any other foundation and my skin didn't get oily as fast as it used to get with other foundations. But, and I hate buts, sadly after falling head over heals in love with this foundation i was gutted to find out It's going to be discontinued soon, and going to be replaced with Sheer Matte foundation, which I didn't really like even though I went to Nars to originally get the Sheer Matte!
I'm going to stock up and I f you do like it Stock up =)

La Mere The Oil Absorbing Lotion

 I bought this Oil Absorbing lotion months ago and used it in the morning as a moisturizer. I stopped using it and forgot about it. My sister suggested I use it as a primer before applying foundation and I did. I'm going to ignore my Bobbi brown oil control lotion and I'm going to use this miracle worker from now onwards. The texture of this lotion is very light, non-greasy and is fast absorbed by my skin. I can't believe I had it all this time and forgot about it!

Makeup ForeverHD Microperfecting Primer in Mauve

I have yellow undertones which I really hate as it tends to make me look either sick or tired!
This MUFE corrector in mauve is said to reduce yellow undertones (each color is set to correct certain skin discoloration) so I gave it a shot. I tried it on one one side of my face to see if there will be any difference and I actually did see a difference. This oil free primer brightened my skin and toned the yellow down. I apply the corrector after applying my La Mere Oil absorbing Lotion.
Useful Hint: I did say this in a previous post, Always pat your face lightly after applying any primer, moisturizer or lotion. Between each application pat your face gently with a tissue paper to absorb any excess.

Fusion Beauty IllumiFill Line Filling Luminizer with Amplifat

 Kim Kardashian is the face of this product. 
This product is a line filling radiance booster, which also firms and highlights as well as restoring youthful volume! 
In addition this product contains "A concentrate of Amplifat™ and No-line™ suspended in calcium-based microspheres helps stimulate the body to produce collagen, promoting increased density and facial volume over 28 days, when applied twice daily." 
I was really excited to try it out as i wanted something that would plump my cheeks and emphasize my cheek bones more. I wasn't expecting anything major like Kim's cheeks since it's obvious she had hers filled, regardless of the BS she says, I wanted a little boost. This product did nothing. Have been using it for 2 weeks or more and I saw nothing. I dont even like the shine it gives! It's completely useless and a waste of money. 
I might keep using it, it "might" do something in 28 days!

Makeup Forever HD Invisible Cover Foundation

This Oil Free foundation comes second on my favorite foundation list. I was using this for a while before discovering Nars Oil free foundation. I really like it. The only thing is my T zone got slightly oily in a couple of hours, which isn't bad at all comparing to other foundations. I used to cover my T zone with MUFE matte velvet+ so it'll stay matte. But  I have to say the Nars Oil free last longer and wont go oily as fast.
If your skin complexion isn't too oily this would be a great foundation I do recommend it.

Nars blush in Deep Throat

 Nars has amazing blushes I have to say as well as naughty and funny names =) 
Orgasm is one of my all time favorites blushes, but now a days Deep throat is my favorite. I love it. It's a a light peachy tone with slight shimmer. Gives a beautiful, flirty, baby doll glow. 

Nars Blush in Exhibit A

This might seem like a very strong color but this Red/Orange blush looks really good on and complements all skin tones. It's a concentrated color, so i apply a every small amount.

Giorgio Armani Blushing Fabric in no. 2

I usually don't go for anything other than powder foundation since creme or silicone base blushes makes my skin dewy and oily. But this Fabric blush is amazing. It gives a very subtle rosy color. It's pretty concentrated so you don't need much to apply just a small amount will do. Love it.

Dior Skin Natural Glow Sculpting Powder in no.20

 I really like this compact. I don't use it for sculpting. What I do is after i'm done with my make-up  i blend the colors together apply it under my eyes, on my nose, my forehead, my cupid bow, and under my lips to add some glow. 

Dior Skin Shimmer Powder in 002 and 001

 I really like this shimmer powder I use it as a highlighter. Both shades are amazing. After applying Dior's Natural Glow Sculpting Powder I applying this on my cheek bones, nose, cupid bow, and lower lip.

Mac Blush Dolly Mix

I LOVE this sheer tone shimmer Blush that gives a very sultry, flirty, and girly look. I only apply it on the apple of my cheeks as it can be too strong if applied all over.
