Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able Foundation

Marc Jacobs is a brand I always see and love the look of, yet never seem to pick anything up but after seeing so so so many positive reviews on their Re(Marc)able foundation I had to put it on my Christmas list!

"INSTANT FULL COVERAGE. ALL-DAY WEIGHTLESS WEAR. LESS IS MORE.
THE WEIGHT IS OVER: 24-HOUR FULL, FLAWLESS COVERAGE IS YOURS IN AN INSTANT WITH THIS ULTRA-LIGHTWEIGHT FOUNDATION CONCENTRATE. THIS REVOLUTIONARY OIL-FREE FORMULA CONTAINS TWICE AS MUCH PIGMENT AS A LEADING FULL-COVERAGE FOUNDATION, BUT IT IS EMULSIFIED WITH GROUNDBREAKING INGREDIENTS SO THE SMALLEST AMOUNT COMPLETELY COVERS WITH DOT-ON PERFECTION. PATENTED GOLDEN PIGMENTS ARE WRAPPED IN LECITHIN, AN INGREDIENT THAT IS BIOCHEMICALLY SIMILAR TO SKIN, FOR IMMEDIATE, EFFORTLESS BLENDING AND A SMOOTH, SOFT MATTE FINISH."




I have only been using this since Christmas Day, but my god I will definitely be repurchasing when it runs out - although I can't see this happening any time soon as a little goes a very long way!

The packaging for this foundation is absolutely beautiful, the only thing is as it's a dot applicator rather than a pump it can get a little messy around the top but if your careful it's absolutely fine! I didn't think I was going to get on with the applicator for this product but it is perfect for the consistency of the foundation as you only need the tiniest little dot's to cover your entire face and if it was through a pump a LOT of product would be wasted.


I have been looking for a fun coverage foundation that doesn't go cakey on my oily skin for ages so when I wore this throughout the day I was really worried it would move/go shiny and just not work but it is actually perfect for my skin type! It's a matte finish but it certainly has a satin feel to it so it doesn't feel heavy on the skin at all.

It isn't the worlds cheapest foundation but it is definitely worth every penny! It retails for £37 and you can pick one up from here or here.

TESTING TOPSHOP MAKE UP

Happy New Year!! What better way to start the new year than to expand my makeup collection and try new products? I have wanted to try Topshop's makeup for such a long time but it has just been one of those brands that I see and walk straight past. After seeing so many positive reviews on their products online I decided to go go and pick up a few products and I am certainly going to be going back for more!


As it was my first time trying the products I didn't want to go all out and purchase one of each so I decided to go for 3 products that I know I will get a lot of use out of a lip liner, a blush and an eyeshadow. I have fallen head over heels in love with all 3, the quality is so so much better than what I expected as they are all so reasonably priced!


I probably didn't need another pinky/nude lip liner but I couldn't help myself and this has to be my favourite out of all three products. It's such a gorgeous wearable shade and the formula is incredible - it's so creamy, soft and pigmented it doesn't dry my lips out at all. This Lip Contour is in the shade outline and it's available here


Just look at the Holographic eyeshadow though - how could anyone resist buying that? This is honestly the prettiest eyeshadow I have ever seen both in the pan and on the eyes. The colour of this shadow changes in the light, it has brown/pink tones with green/blue reflections it's absolutely stunning! I have worn this both alone and on top of other eyeshadows and it looks just as good either way. This Chameleon Glow Pigment is in the shade changeling and it can also be used as a highlighter, although I haven't been brave enough to try this just yet! It's available here.


I'm so bad when it comes to remembering to put blush on so I thought i'd pick up a new one to help me get into the swing of it and it really has! I have been reaching for this blush everyday as it adds such a healthy yet subtle glow to the cheeks, this blush is definitely more pigmented than I expected however it's not OTT pink at all - it blends perfectly. This Powder Blush is in the shade Dream Phone.

I am incredibly impressed with the packaging and the quality of the products, they're really sturdy and not bulky at all which makes them perfect to travel with as well!
