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 πŸ˜‚! 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” πŸ™ˆ!

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 itπŸ˜‚ 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! Β 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 πŸ˜‰ I would defiantly re purchase this product πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

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 πŸ˜‚! 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 RedheadπŸ™ˆ! 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 πŸ™‚ My skin type is combination lol which I also refer to as goldie locks….not too dry…not too oily πŸ˜‚ 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 ❀️
