This one was so raved that, as soon as I test-drived my sample (as I should always do, impulsive buyer me…) I had to make a video on it.
This foundation retails for around 40$, around 40€, or 39£ — for 50ml —, comes in 40 shades with 4 different undertones, it’s not cruelty free and claims highly customisable coverage, a natural finish, and resisting through water and sweat.
It’s widely available in counters worldwide, and I found it online at Selfridges and, of course, Sephora US.
here it is, the Look Fantastic selection for this month.
and, as usual, my feelings on last month’s products…

It’s been a while since I’ve done an Up Close and Poresonal on an affordable foundation, and it sure has been quite a while since I’ve ventured into the luminous and glowy side of coverage.
The claims on Essence Fresh & Fit Awake Makeup are simple: fresh, glowy complexion, high coverage without mask effect. If you’d like to see how I got along with it through a long day and take notes to see if it makes it into your to-buy list, just click away!
As you may know, Essence is available in drugstores and does not have (as far as I know) an online shop.
here’s this month’s treats on the beauty box and my experience with the products from last month.
how did you get along with them?

You take this gel-ish tint, slap it on the brows, leave it on for twenty minutes to two hours and peel it off to reveal (hopefully) filled in fuller brows that will last for 3 days.
That may come in handy, especially for those who like to have their brows filled and don’t want to commit to microblading, but would love to sleep those extra 10 minutes in the morning: you just take the time to apply this product a couple of days a week and then you go about your life while it does the job for you.
You can find out how it worked for me by watching the video…
And you can buy Maybelline Brow Tattoo at your local drugstores and at Feelunique.
