New Cosmetics

Hey beauties, I finally bought some new things much needed to my collections, so I share with you.  I have been a  long fan of Guerlain, Estee Lauder, Lancome and Tom Ford so I picked up some stuff from each place, stuff I know I will use.  At heart I am neutral makeup girl or soft colours, its stuff I would reach for most often and even for other people, its makeup they would reach to use and want to know how to use most of the time.  I did mention the Guerlain didn't swatch well at all but very different when using a brush and under a primer.  Most impressed is the Illamasqua foundation while not my colour I use to highlight my face and you need such a small amount that you use a small amount thus getting your moneys worth.  Tom Ford doesn't disappoint nor does the Lancome foundation, impressed that high end makeup is beginning to understand undertones and cater for us deeper tones.

I'm lucky that while they don't get my colour perfectly right, I can mix and match and correct what they get wrong.  I say this because while I am black my skin has a yellow undertone so too much red makes me look sun burnt and too much yellow makes me look like a ghost, having foundations that are too red or yellow can be easily fixed, for their asking price I shouldn't have to but what can you do??

See you soon
