Mac, Loreal, yep 'cause I'm worth it.

(Lil Mama - Lip Gloss)

As far as foundation is concerned, I've never found one that I love enough to buy more than a couple of times. I don't know whether it's down to boredom, or that I just haven't found the perfect one for me. I've used thick foundations, lighter foundations, tinted moisturisers... anything really. Overall, I tend to rule out  heavier foundations because I don't like my skin to feel suffocated. I love most tinted moisturisers, but I've found that as I get to the last quarter-ish of the product, the coverage falters, or it looks dry. And as for the lighter foundations, I just don't think I've found one that I like enough to keep on purchasing.

So, it has come to that time again, when I'm fed up of my current foundation, and I don't like how it looks on my skin, and I need to find a new product to use. So, I went to Boots yesterday, and remembered that last Summer/Autumn, I was using the Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. cream. I really liked the product, but once my tan faded it was too dark for my skin, and due to my inability to stick to one product, I didn't purchase it again in a lighter shade. But, it's six months later, and I thought I'd give it a whirl.

Garnier Daily All-In-One B.B. Cream - £7 Boots

I purchased the light shade, obviously.

Having used this product before, I was aware that it wasn't a foundation of sorts. However, it has great coverage, but feels like I'm not even wearing makeup at all. After just one use, I already notice that it makes my complexion look even, and glowing, as well as feeling hydrated. It also contains vitamin C and mineral pigments, as well as SPF 15 UV protection which is great now that the weather's getting warmer. I'd almost forgotten how much I love this product! I also saved £2 in Boots due to their offer on Garnier products - result!
