Swatch: ELF Moisturising Lipstick - Rosy Go Round

Eyes-Lips-Face-ELF-Moisturising-Moisturizing-Lipstick-Rosy-Go-Round-Swatch-Review

The packaging if this lipstick is quite sleek, all black with a band around the middle which corresponds to the colour of the lipstick inside which is useful when looking in your collection for a certain lipstick. The lid fits on securely and won't be falling off when carrying it around with you.

The lipstick is a cream formula and is moisturising but doesn't slide straight off your lips either. It is quite a waxy lipstick which helps it to stay on the lips. It has a vanilla scent and doesn't taste of anything.

It is a bright pinky / red colour which is quite long lasting, and it does stain your lips slightly which helps it to last longer.

Swatch: OPI - My Silk Tie*

I don't usually do swatches on Monday's however seeing as this is one of the polishes from the current Fifty Shades of Grey collection I thought I should share it sooner rather than later. My Silk Tie was provided by JustMyLook.

Review: ELF - Flawless Finish Foundation (Porcelain)

ELF - Flawless Finish Foundation - Porcelain

"Achieve a flawless complexion with the silky smooth e.l.f. Studio Flawless Finish Foundation. The lightweight formula blends in naturally for a beautiful semi-matte finish. This liquid foundation applies easily and lasts all day for visibly brighter and radiant looking skin. Using our Flawless Finish Foundation not only restores uneven skin textures and tones, but most importantly, the SPF 15 protects your skin against harmful sun damage!" - ELF UK

I found this foundation applied better with a damp makeup sponge rather than fingers, a traditional foundation brush or a buffing brush.

My skin is oily / combination and I found it did try and cling to any slightly dry patches and as such I wouldn't try and use it on a day where I had dry patches.

After around five hours it did break down over my t-zone even after using it with a primer.

The texture of this foundation is more on the liquid side, it is not a thick liquid.

This didn't oxidise on my skin. Porcelain is the current lightest shade, it is a bit too dark for me personally but is workable with .

It dries to a semi matte finish, so for me personally I like to powder it to help it last as long as possible.

Coverage is medium, it would begin to cake if you try and build up the coverage to a full coverage.

There didn't seem to be much of a change when the foundation is photographed despite it having a SPF of 15 in it.

I like the packaging, it is frosted glass and has a very useful pump which is amiss in other foundations (looking at you Revlon!)

If you are on the oily side and can find a shade match then I think its worth trying. While I liked the foundation and would give it a 3 out of 5 it isn't one which I would be purchasing again because I prefer Revlon Colorstay or NYX High Definition Foundation more.

Shopping: February 2015

This month I seem to have been all about the lip products. That said I did have quite a few Superdrug points which were about to go out of date, and it was free P&P so I had to spend them, right?
