REVIEW-MAKEUP FOREVER STEP 1 SKIN EQUALIZER IN MATTIFYING PRIMER.

Makeup Forever recently released a set of Primers called Skin Equalizer.They come in 11 different Range,each is meant to address a specific concern related to skin type and tone.They are divided into two sections,Colour Correcting Range which comes in a variety of shades and the Texture Correcting Range.So no matter what your need,there is  going to be one that works for you..imageAm going to talk about the Makeup Forever Step1 Skin Equalizer in Matiifying Primer from the Texture Correcting Range..imageimageimageIts comes in a Tube with a squeeze nozzle at the end.A little difficult to get the product out of the tube,tho its helps to control the amount of product that comes out….imageThe texture is thick,almost paste like and a little goes a long way.imageimageAccording to Makeup Forever,the Primer has longer staying power,makeup goes on seamlessly and optimizes colour and finish.Sincerely this primer is not bad at all.

I think you can tell from this picture where the primer is applied and where its not..
I think you can tell from this picture where the primer is applied and where its not..

The first thing I noticed is how it covered my Pores,and gaves me a smooth base to work my Foundation on..I have Combination Skin(oily tzone) and this works really well for my skin.My makeup really did stay matte all day,blotting just once..This particular Primer (Mattifying Primer) does nothing in terms of optimizing colour(you can choose from the colour correcting range for that),but the finish is beautiful if you can work well with it..

So here are the issues I have with this Primer.First after applying the Primer,I find it difficult to blend my Foundation.I have to give extra effort to blend my Foundation else my face will look cakey.Another thing is,it dries up almost immediately,you have to apply and blend quickly so it doesn’t leave white patches(not cool).With that being said,it has a pleasant smell which I like and it does exactly what it claims to do..I like this Primer and will definitely repurchase..

I would recommend it for Combination and Oily Skin..My dry skin Beauties can get the Hydrating or Nourishing Primer..Am also eyeing the Radiant Primer in Caramel from the Colour Correcting Range,will like to try that..

REVIEW-SACHA BUTTERCUP SETTING POWDER.

imageA Review of Sacha Buttercup setting powder…imageBefore I started using Sacha Buttercup setting powder,have been using Bennye Banana powder which I like.But the issue i have with the Bennye powder is the white patches it leaves behind on my skin after dusting it out.I always need to use my Mac Nw43 powder to calm it down then am good.. The rave about this Sacha  buttercup setting powder by women of colour got my attention and i knew i had to try it….

The Sacha buttercup setting powder is much smoother in texture than the Bennye Banana powder,it desolves into your skin and doesn’t cake.It blends seamlessly no matter how much you apply on your face.. It doesn’t cling or accentuate any lines around the eye area and sets the highlight under you eyes perfectly.. If you are like me that uses powder of my skin tone to calm the harshness of the bennye powder and if your a medium to dark skin tone,you should check out this powder.Its the best setting powder for women of colour yet..Might be too yellow on fairer skin tone…

Compared to the Bennye powder, Sacha buttercup powder doesn’t  blot oil as much as the bennye powder does.meaning it absorbs oil but not as well as the bennye powder does.If you have dry or combination skin,this is not an issue,but if you have oily skin,i think you should get the sacha pressed powder to always carry along when your out..Aside this,its a great setting powder and i haven’t used my bennye setting powder since i started using it…Sacha buttercup setting powder and Bennye banana setting powder side by side..
