Review: EX1 Invisiwear Liquid Foundation

I pre-ordered the EX1 Inviswear Liquid Foundation on lookfantastic.com after hearing such great things about it and watching multiple youtube tutorials in which it was used and on the 31st of October, it finally got released online! I've been wearing this foundation pretty much every day since I received it in the post and now feel I can finally give a good review of it.

Firstly, let me note that this is a foundation which has been formulated for olive/yellow skin tones, I, on the other hand, am a fair skinned girl with a mega fake tan addiction. I purchased the shade F200 which is slightly dark but is a perfect match for me when I have fake tan on, which is the majority of the time. I will probably get F100 for some of my paler days but I'm guessing it will still be quite dark. It was a bit of a mare picking which shade to get as it was online and I couldn't try it out but F200 was a relatively good match. 

The name of the foundation itself, 'Invisiwear' really intrigued me as I always like to try foundations out that claim to make you look like your not wearing any foundation when you really are. Of course, you can tell that you have foundation on but you can hardly feel it's on as its so lightweight. The formula itself is really nice and blends into the skin really nicely. It gives really good medium coverage that can be built up easily. I personally like to apply it to the skin with the Real Techniques sponge and it gives a gorgeous luminous and fresh finish, I've applied it with a buffing brush and foundation brush too but the finish is definitely best when used with a sponge.

At first I didn't really like the packaging too much but I've really warmed to it. The pump is good and I love the fact that you can visibly see how much you've got left. All in all at £10.50 this foundation is an absolute steal and I'm without a doubt going to re-purchase it!

Review: Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil

I admit I have an unhealthy obsession with lip products and really it's all I've written about recently in the blogging world but I honestly can't help it. This new addition to my nude lip collection from Maybelline has yet again caused me to enter into absolute lip heaven. 

The shade I picked up is 630 Nude Perfection and the name certainly does it justice. It's one of those infamous  'Kylie Jenner lip' shades and it makes the lips look so full and luscious. The formula is matte and extremely pigmented, they last around 2-3 hours on my lips, whilst drinking and eating before I have to re-apply. There are eight different shades of these lip pencils currently available on boots.com and after trying this one I'm definitely going to pick up some of the others. 

I've had this beauty of a lip pencil/crayon for around three weeks now and I have seriously fallen in love. This little stick is essential in my makeup bag now and If I don't have red lipstick on this will without a doubt be plastered onto my lips. The Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencils only cost £4.99 so are a complete bargain and seriously worth trying!
