Beauty: L'Oréal Haul


     To me the weekend means shopping, and today did not disappoint as I was able to pick up a few beauty essentials to try out. At the moment Boots have buy one get on half price off the L'Oréal brand and in need of a new foundation I was keen to pick up the Nude Magique Eau De Teint 'lighter than water' foundation after hearing nothing but good reviews about it. I chose 110 Warm Ivory and the colour match is perfect, I applied some to the back of my hand and was truly amazed by the weightless silky feel it left to my skin and how even the coverage is. I have a tendency to suffer with dry skin so this foundation is ideal and leaves me with a dewy look, however I would question how well this would stay on someone with oilier skin.
     I also picked up the Nude Magique CC Cream - Anti Fatigue, I have never bought a CC cream in my life so I thought that today I would change that, especially as during the winter months skin can look duller than usual, this seemed like the perfect pick me up. Again applying a test patch to my hand I watched in amazement as the cream transformed into a foundation before my eyes, evening out my skin tone but leaving me feeling like I had nothing on my skin. I love a natural look to my makeup and have bought this product with that in mind, although I think a concealer will still be necessary to cover any imperfections on my skin. I am excited to use both of these and see how they last after a days wear. 
     Finally, I bought the new Miss Manga mascara (no photo because it didn't agree with my camera flash!) I recently ran out of my Benefit 'they're real' mascara and remembering I am a long time lover of the L'Oréal Volume Million Lashes I thought I'd give this a go, and I'm glad I did. The mascara applies evenly and really lengthens the appearance of my lashes, I don't have a bad word to say about it.
I'm really happy with my purchases and it'll be interesting to see if they make it into my permanent daily make up routine or if my quest for the perfect foundation will continue. 

Thank you for reading!
