Hope you all doing well. If you love reading my blogs you can follow me on Instagram and twitter.
Today I am going to do something different usually I review latest makeup or skin care products but now I am going to talk about 3 products which has recently been added to my daily basic makeup routine. This 3 products are new and currently I love using them OLAY Total Effects light weight anti ageing cream, LOREAL MAT MAGIQUE 12 hr foundation and LAKME COLOR CHANGE CC CREAM.
So FIRST product I am going to talk about is Olay total effects 7 light weight anti ageing cream.
Now for all those who don’t know I am a huge fan of Olay. If I wouldn’t be blogger I would never switch to any other products and would just use Olay. OLAY has been with me since years and it has always helped my skin look better. Now as you know Olay anti ageing cram had a thick texture which wasn’t good enough for oily or combination skin. So they have come up with light weight texture which can be used by many skin types lets find out how it works. This cream comes in long cylindrical tube white and black is a standard packaging for most of Olay products. It has a pump which makes it easy to dispense the product. The first thing I noticed was a fragrance which was totally different from previous one also the cream was much thinner in consistency and white in color. I felt it was more like a lotion then cream. I have a combination skin so one pump was enough for my face. Its definitely light in texture and easy to blend. Still its quite moisturizing and after putting on foundation it gives you glowy look. This would work best for normal to combination skin also it would be great for all season. So after application my skin felt hydrated and well nourished it didn't look dull or oily But after few hrs it did made my t zone shiny so I thought of using a matte foundation or some loose powder over it. I wouldn’t suggest this for oily skin because its not a gel based and its like a lotion which can clog pores. if you are prone to acne this wouldn't be the right product for your skin. It does contain spf 15.
Second product is L'OREAL 12hr Mat magique foundation which I have already reviewed the link is here. LOREAL MAT MAGIQUE FOUNDATION It has turned out to be my everyday favorite foundation. I do pair it up with my Olay cream so that I get a natural glowy skin. Rather than semi matte effect.
This cream comes in white color tube. It contains spf 30 which is really good for everyday use. It comes in two shades beige and bronze. I picked up beige for my skin tone. If you have natural to fair skin you can opt for beige. This cream is white in color but as soon as you blend into skin it just changes its color to beige which looks well blended on skin. After application your skin looks brighter and naturally even toned. It has a very light coverage so if you have great skin you don’t need to layer it with foundation or concelar. I usually apply loose mineral powder over this. Its like a everyday product where you don't need any coverage and still want your skin too look even toned and well moisturized. This product is also good for dull and dry skin. Again for oily skin its quite moisturizing so it may give you dewy finish. After application make sure you mattify your t zone area. The tube is very easy to carry so you can always carry them in your bag and apply it whenever you want. Also you can use this product with concelar for more coverage and better looking skin. It doesn't cover any marks or dark circles. In a way its a very good product for college going girls and also who would love to look natural on daily basis.
