I used to be Starrystarrynight on MSE, before a log in technical glitch!
I treated myself to this. It has, to be fair, lasted well - been using it regularly for 12 months and I'm only half way through the bottle. I have very fair skin and struggle normally with a colour match, but this is perfect. However . . . the texture and staying power on my oily T-zone is not quite as good as Rimmel's Stay Matte, which I can't get in the right shade any more.
Love Makeup Revolution's eyeshadow and blusher - great value for money.
I find Max Factor's mascara to be excellent - works better for me than Benefit, etc. and more :money: (especially when 3 for 2)
My favourite powder foundation is Bare Minerals and I like NYX eyeshadow palettes. I love make-up but I could happily get by with just these 3 products if need be!
Have you tried urban decays eye primer?
The Elemis one is my fav. I’ve tried the body shop one, but I like the way the Elemis one emulsifies.
Avon have just launched a new lipstick called Epic which has a built in primer. I haven't tried it myself but might be worth a look.
