The Skincare #12: Oil Control
Friday, 15 March 2013
I’ve been very good at shopping my stash recently rather than buying new things as mentioned here, so I congratulated myself by going out and eh buying new things...The thought was there, that’s what counts! Baby steps :)
The never ending battle to combat my oily t-zone continues. I bought Urban Decays Deslick Makeup Setting Spray. As I’ve never used this before and have read some reviews that it broke people out, I went for the 30ml size. This size is perfect for travelling or just throwing into my makeup bag. I’ve kept this for use on nights out and so far I’m impressed, no breakouts to report and I’ve been glowing rather than downright shiny.
For day time oil control I picked up Mac Blot Powder in Medium. I absolutely love this. I don’t know why I didn’t buy this sooner. It is keeps oil at bay but doesn’t add colour or look cakey. I’ve been using this with both my Laura Mercier and Chantecaille Tinted Moisturisers.
I’ve admitted before that I haven’t a clue when it comes to eye makeup (I’m far too busy concealing any pesky blemishes and keeping shine at bay obviously) but still I aspire to rock a nice eye look and to help me achieve this (one day) I bought MAC Eye Shadow in Club. It is a gorgeous shade it looks not descript in the pan but please go to MAC and give it a swatch as it’s multidimensional and green/brown depending on the light.
To keep this in place, I bought Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion. If I’m going to start wearing more eye shadow, keeping it on my oily lids is a start right?
What have you been buying recently?
