We’re lovers of all brands and we all have different skin tones. MAC has always been the go to brand for many women when it comes to the foundation department, but for us at PinkCrust there were other brands that offered better foundation products. Having tried the MAC mineralize ‘gold deposit’ as a highlighter’ and being fairly impressed, two years later there was a return to MAC this time to try the MAC mineralize Skinfinish powder. Here’s a review from one of our girls
“I’ll start by saying my skin is not particularly sensitive, but some products may cause me breakouts. I’ve decided to turn things up a notch and make a change to my beauty regimen. I’m not a fan of MAC bases, as they break me out, but where mineral powder is concerned, I’m prepared to try most brands . This product is brilliant, it gives light coverage, which builds to medium coverage, it stays on all day and is the perfect tone, at the salon I find myself having quick glimpses of my skin and thinking “ah, don’t you look flawless today” then I remind myself I used the MAC mineralize and get really impressed by the product. But my main, main, main pro point is that, I have had NO breakout…my skin has even seems to of improved, which my be down to the fact that this weightless product does not clog my pores.” -PinkCrust girlie

Now we’ve officially hit winter, the struggle to maintain that summer dew begins.
We all know the winter weather can cause the skin to become abnormally dry. The eye area being the most delicate part of the face is particularly vulnerable.
Liz Earles Daily Eye Repair™ is a brilliant multi functional product! it helps reduce the appearance of fine lines moisturises, has reflective particles which is a good base for your concealer too! The ingredients are also 100% natural and the cream contains a SPF barrier(slightly different to an actual SPF cream but in a nutshell does the same thing)
However, as far as eye creams go, this product would be considered a little heavy so only small amounts are needed. We’d recommend this product to those who tend to get very dry around the eye and would like to hydrate this area rather than use for anti ageing
At £7.25 for a 5ml tube, it’s not badly priced either! http://uk.lizearle.com to make a purchase xoxo
why? Heavy duty stuff which covers pretty much everything!!! don’t be frightened by “heavy-duty” all we mean is a little goes a long way and the thick cream block ensures a very solid consistency(which avoids making blemishes look worse, like a lot of concealer’s do)
Pros? This is dual compact so you get two shades, which can be mixed together for a spot on colour match or used in separate areas for highlighting. This is especially good for darker skin tones which almost always needs more than one shade.
How much? £26
We use for? Ourselves(of course) and bridals
Our advice? get it, as you may find that you no longer need to use foundation!!
One of our favourite style queens, Ms Olivia Palermo, seems to be following one of our favourite beauty rules which is…’find your colour and stick to it!’ We’re loving that Olivia consistently rocks the ever so iconic red shade. As we all know any outfit can be upgraded instantly with exceptional grooming which means attention to detail to. Red polishes always has the aforementioned effects! Now, although it may seem fairly repetitive to work the same colour over and over it doesn’t have to be if you’re alternating shades! here are a few über chic colours worth trying…oh yes, with us it’s unanimous, red is best worn on short nails
Yes, we’ve blogged about gel nail polish a zillion times. But here we go again *big smile*.
We’ll make this quick, here’s why you should get them
1- DRIES INSTANTLY
2- MAKES NAILS SUPER STRONG!(no matter how weak the don’t break while the polish is on)
3- LASTS UP TO TWO WEEKS(it really does)
4-NOT DAMAGING(at all)
We’ve been using this for a year, on ourselves and customers and to be honest if it went for the array of OPI and ESSIE colours that the gel nails do not have , normal nail polish would be a thing of the past.
