Hello Lovelies!

We are a team of women with oily skin, schedule full of regular meetings which gives us no time to groom ourselves and keep travelling in traffic, along with a weather that is so hot you can take oil from our skin and keep the sheikhs happy. What is one of our quick fix up our face and off to work rescue? MAC Studio Fix

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation- NC 42

Mac Claims: A one-step powder and foundation that provides a smooth, flawless, all-matte, full coverage finish. Long-wearing, velvety texture allows skin to breathe.

As I walked into the store for a powder that saves time in application as well as can be used for heavy coverage of marks and under eye circles (Thank you Netflix) they suggested an NC 42, on initial application it seemed yellowish on my skin tone but in natural light or under white light as the day goes the shade settles on my skin perfectly and keeps me looking fresh all day long.

The dry powder texture absorbs oil easily and gives a matte finish, no wonder it is the go to product for all MUA’s. I am neither a Pro or a MUA but I would recommend this for all the ladies who are always on the go, and like me have no time for a daily make up routine. If you want a heavier look I would recommend putting it over a liquid foundation base, the good thing about MAC products are they don’t let your skin feel heavy with their product applications and is dermatologically tested for all skin types.

Product Packaging:

It’s a got a black outer casing and there are 3 compartments inside. One is for the mirror, the second is for the product and the third is for a sponge case. I was quiet surprised when the MUA at the MAC store showed me the sponge available inside, it really is a time saver and very easy to clean.

Coverage duration: As the day goes the powder settles well on my skin and keeps my face looking fresh, one re- touch is required for it to last 6-7 hrs. There were no cakey layers on my skin and with just a  cleansing, moisturing and application of the powder my skin looks like it has a natural make up look.

To end this, I highly recommend this product to anyone who has no time or just wants to invest in an amazing loose powder.

Estee Lauder: Makeup Saviour

How a plain looking bottle of foundation delivered unexpected results.

We love make up and not just the regular “Oooo I need makeup so i’ll get some”, we love make up in a way that getting the right primer to the final lipgloss is discussed like art (make up is an art). A cupboard full of foundation bottles just because we wanted to try it is how much we love make up!

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Make up is one such foundation, living in a city that is always HOT with a schedule that is always tight we’ve come to understand that we need make up that lasts all day long and if it fails to deliver, well then it’s time to break up.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place foundation was one relationship that we held onto.

What the company promises:

A 15-hour, flawless foundation that stays looking fresh and natural through heat, humidity, and nonstop activity.

Well we did not need to hear more, from picking it up at the store to placing it in my Gucci Sylvie Leather Bag our beautiful relationship began.

Keeping my oily skin in mind I applied a light primer recommended by my dermatogolist and using my hands put some foundation on my face.

I am a sucker for beauty blenders so I used a slightly damp beauty blender from Forever21 to dab the foundation covering all areas of my face and neck. (Many forget to apply it on your neck area but it’s important you do so, unless you want to look two toned and avoid all kinds of photography..eh..I didn’t think so either)

Result? I’ll let the comments answer

12pm(Receptionist): “You look very fresh”

2:00pm (Post lunch when i’m almost sleepy): “You don’t look tired at all”

6:00pm(Office Colleague): “Heading somewhere special today?”

9:00pm (Mom): “Are you coming from back from a party?You look pretty fresh, did you go to work?”

In short: It lasted ALL DAY LONG! Beautifully covered my under eye circles, blemishes and stayed on like a second skin. Does not feel heavy on your skin at all and keeps you looking fresh with very little product.

This is one relationship I am holding onto for a very long time, you should try it too.

Tip: Get the foundation that matches your skin, check it under white lights and keep the patch on a little while to see how well it suits your skin.
