Testing, testing...

So I've recently acquired a few more beauty products that I'm currently testing out. I have half and half formed opnions already about a few of the products but I'd prefer to test them out a little bit longer to forma completley solid opnion. I did notice that I forgot one skincare product off this list but I'll be sure to mention it in this post anyways.

Now I know my FOTD's usually look pretty similar but I really enjoy doing FOTD's, especially when I'm using one or two new products that I'd love to tell you about. I'm still really into the minimalist look at the moment, I think its classic, easy, quick and very pretty for a day time look. I won't lie even if I go out at night I don't wear all that much more makeup but I do my eyes a bit darker and throw in some bronzer and highlighter.

FOTD #5: The Minimalist

Lately I've been sporting a very bare but polished look. I haven't been in the mood to go all out on my makeup but I don't feel comfortable going too bare. To be honest I'm really digging this minimalist look. Its very simple and I'm done with makeup in 5 minutes (okay 7 or 8 minutes...).

Sunday's FOTD #3

Thought I should share with you what makeup I was wearing yesterday. I am wearing exactly the same makeup today so I guess it can be todays FOTD but I took photos of yesterdays face and I felt like I would be lying if I said its todays face when the pictures are from yesterday. Anyways I digress...

Budget Beauty: Catrice Defining Blush

This is the Catrice Defining Blush in Peach - R35.95. I got this at the end of February and have been using it since. I find I reach for this most times than other blushes own. It's a very pigmented colour so you don't need a lot otherwise it'll come out an extreme pink on your cheeks and possibly make you look like a Barbie doll - literally just sweep your brush lightly through it and thats more than enough. I first move my brush sideways along my cheeks and then in circular motions to properly blend it in. It's quite a matte powder so there's no shimmer but it's not so matte that it leaves your cheeks looking dull, if that makes sense? It makes your cheeks have a rosey, peachy, healthy glow. It's very soft to the touch and it stays put for a long time which is lovely as I hate always having to touch up my make up. I also love the packaging. It's so simple yet attractive and the see-through case makes your eye catch the colour of the blush. I always think that packaging is important - if it looks crappy no one is even going to bother to even look at it as it didn't catch their eye. All in all another good product from Catrice - are they ever going to disappoint me?

Happy Monday and I hope everyone enjoys this week!

Budget Beauty: Make Me Blush

Woolworths Make Me Blush Lip and Cheek Tint - Cherry Cherry R49.95
I was watching TV and I saw that Woolworths was advertising a new make up range. I didn't think much of it until I saw this baby in Woolworths when I went winter clothes shopping. For a cream blush it is quite cheap as some cream blushes range from R100 and over. rsonally I don't like the little container it comes in. I think they should have made it black instead of white but thats just me being fussy. I think the white makes it look cheap - I like cheap products that look expensive ;) It was R49.95 so I can't really ask for much I guess. It doesn't look like theres much cream blush in here anyways which is disappointing because the colour is amazing but I will say that it will last a long time as you don't need to use a lot.

What I do is rub a bit on my finger - its a wonderful creamy, soft texture - and then dab it onto my cheeks - I don't put it on my apples of my cheeks as I find the colour is too bright and harsh for my apples. I then use my kabuki brush to blend it in little circular motions. The colour doesn't come out as red as what the product looks like, it blends in to a lovely rosey, flush of colour that looks completely natural. I find myself reaching for this nearly every morning as I like the way it looks dewy on my cheeks and not powdery like powder blushes can do.

As a lip tint it does work well but you have to add a lip balm before you use this as it doesn't blend very well on your lips on its own. It gives your lips a stained cherry colour thats not too bright or light. When I bought this I only saw two colours available and that was like a coral colour and this one that I have which is Cherry Cherry. I chose my Cherry Cherry one because I knew I wouldn't use the coral colour on my lips. I'm not too sure if there are more colours available and hopefully there are because I wouldn't mind laying my hands on a pinky coloured one!

With that being said I think this product is definitely worth it and a good make from Woolworths. As always Woolworths has impressed me again!
