Hi there, happy New Year and thanks for joining me again. I published a post sometime ago about ‘Product Reviews you do not want to miss’ check this link: http://purpledamsel.com/2012/09/upcoming-reviews/
Yes, I know it has been a long time since I made that post and actually publishing my reviews. My sincere apologies, had to do lots of homework so that I can blog effectively. So, thanks for your understanding.
I will be publishing the reviews of the products listed in the post randomly and not as listed; I will be adding a lot more products to the list. See, I have been doing a lot of homework for you 😀
Enough blabbing, back to work.
So, I’m going to start with the Fashion Fair brand : cream-to-powder makeup, mascara, oil control loose powder, eye pencil and concealer. I already gave the Lip teaser out before putting together this write –up. But this post is is about the cream to powder and loose powder.
FASHION FAIR (CREAM-TO-POWDER MAKEUP)
For me, it is slightly creamy and gives a light to medium coverage. Ideal for anyone that loves little makeup application. It can be worn alone but sometimes, I apply a little bit of loose powder afterwards.
It sells for
N 6, 000.00 (about $40) here in naija and I would recommend it for all skin types, both professional and personal use. I like it but it’s not one of my favorites. It’s Period after opening (PAO) is 18 months, the shade in this photo is Brown Blaze.
It can be applied with a sponge or brush but I get better results with a sponge. Check this link for a video I made using it Makeup tutorial for super busy mums
FASHION FAIR (OIL CONTROL LOOSE POWDER)
Now what do I write about this? Using my powder brush with a light dust of this powder all over my face after foundation works perfect for me. It’s ability to control oil? It does but not as much as I want it to.
It’s sheer and sells for
N 6, 000 ($37-40) it’s PAO is 24M, suitable for all skin types but for oily skin, using a mattifying moisturizer or face primer will give fab results. I made a mistake of removing completely the cellophane on the product, now I have a lot of the product on the upper part of the jar which sometimes wastes, spills into my kit etc
Lesson learnt: prick a few holes instead to prevent spillage/waste.
Hope that helps, I’d love to read your responses.
