Rimmel- Lasting Finish Primer

This primer was definitely a random, spontaneous buy. I really under-estimated how good the quality of this product would be and for some time of trying it, I thought it wasn't as good as I think now. The texture of this is like a thick, creamy moisturiser; almost like Sudocrem. It gives your makeup a sticky base to cling on to and really does the job of keeping it in place all day long. According to Rimmel, this primer makes your makeup last for up to 8 hours after use and I would definitely agree with this statement . Another thing I would say is that it really re-hydrates my skin throughout the day and ensures that my foundation does not stick to my dry patches!

Let me know if you have tried this primer or if you have any recommendations for me!

L'Oreal True Match Highlighter

First of all, I'd like to explain why I haven't been posting a lot lately! I have been extremely busy with college and work and not had any time for blog posts what so ever. I will be trying to post at least once a week but hopefully more if i can!

Now for the review! I heard that L'Oreal had brought out highlighters which fit different skin tones which I was so excited for because I am always looking for a gorgeous highlight which looks amazing on fair skin. The shade I picked up was obviously the lightest one but I'm not exactly sure what the shade is called. It is built up of 3 different shades of white pink and icy blue which I thought was interesting. I tend to mix all 3 shades together (which is what I think you're meant to do) and apply it to my cheekbones and the tip of my nose and I absolutely love it! This is literally the brightest highlighter and is basically white which is amazing on my skin because it shows up incredibly. I would recommend this to anyone with pale skin and I am sure that the other shades for other skin tones are just as good.

Let me know if you have tried one of these highlighters!
