Catrice High Glow Mineral Highlighting Powder & Penny’s P.s Pro Foundation Review

I picked these both in Penny’s on one of my “Oh babe I just need to run in here and get socks that’s it” and come out with a bag full of goodies 😂! I literally should be barred from penny’s like I just can’t help myself, I get to the till and when the cashier says the total I’m like “ugh oh” 🙈!

Anyways I had read an article about this catrice highlighter a week or so before I bought it, claiming that it was amazing and sold out almost instantly so if you see it basically get it😂 that was enough telling for me… I had to pick it up and see for myself and you all if it was REALLY worth all the hype! So it cost €5.50 first of all which lets be fair, is an amazing price especially when it’s quite a big pan …. I was expecting it to be smaller so that was the first thumbs up! It’s so highly pigmented which is another big plus… For me the more pigment the better because I LOVE highlight on the face and you can use it in so many ways to give that gorgeous dewy look 😍 or become a disco ball lol whatever look your going for! The texture is so creamy it’s just perfect and glides so effortlessly onto the skin!  It’s a perfect I between shade of white and champagne 😍 I swatched it below so you can see for yourself before you commit to the buy 😉 I would defiantly re purchase this product 👌🏻

Next I picked up two foundations from penny’s, one from the P.s Pro range and the other from the ordinary penny’s range. So today I tested out the P.s Pro foundation which was €6…. Now for a foundation that’s cheap but I don’t know wether it’s just in my head that everything is so much cheaper in penny’s or what but I was thinking “jeez €6 for their foundation”… I really wanted to try it tough so I said feck it I’ll go all out 😂! I am super pale so I picked up the shade “porcelain” more often then none the shade even when it’s the lightest available is still too dark for my actual “Porcelain skin” thanks to being an Irish Redhead🙈! To my Suprise when I applied the foundation I was like “wow it actually matches perfectly” now that’s a first! The coverage was medium…it blended so beautifully without being cakes or too light… You could see a few of my freckles but it covered all blemishes and the majority of those freckles on my face 🙂 My skin type is combination lol which I also refer to as goldie locks….not too dry…not too oily 😂 so I found it perfect on my skin type but I think if you had really dry skin I would definitely moisturise and add some liquid highlighter in with it so it didn’t go cakey! I wore it all day and went to the cinema that night with the girls to see the Blair Witch Project….which consists of my with my hands over my face and even after that it looked perfect so great staying power ! Again I would defiantly pick up this foundation again and maybe in a darker shade for wearing tan or going out that’s how much I like it ❤️

My Review on Rimmels New Match Perfection Foundation

Hey dawls ❤️

The other day I picked up some goodies from good old fashioned boots lol! Boots is turning into another penny’s store for me lol 🙈 that’s not a good thing! They had on some fantastic offers you just cannot refuse! 2 for €12 on all Rimmel , 2 for €20 on Revlon and buy 1 get the second half price on the Real Technique Brushes ! This is all the stuff I picked up which I had posted on my snapchat , my username is Colliiiee

So anyways back to why I am even writing this post lol I wanted to try out the new Rimmel foundation for myself because to be honest I’ve heard both great and terrible reviews on it and so I wanted to test it out for you all so you would have an idea before committing to the purchase 🙂 It’s €9.99 for the foundation and €7.99 for the concealer.

I loved the consistancy of the foundation and found as it says on the bottle lol it blended perfectly into my skin with ease! I thought I would love the concealer a lot more though because of the tube and applicator being a brush but hmmm not so much. I just found the tube to be sort of hard to squirt out and I just find there isn’t much product in it, but I’ll keep using it and update you all on a later blog. The foundation lasted all day and night and didn’t go at all patchy or faded anywhere on my skin 👍! So for right now I would totally recommend the foundation but I wouldn’t rave about the concealer because for me it wasn’t anything special tbh ❤️

Heres a photo of the foundation & concealer on me ❤️
