A New Love For Cream Products

I used to think of cream products as a bit of a chore, an extra step in the routine and most of the time a pain to blend! However, this year I haven't stopped using them; they make a great addition to my makeup routine.
Makeup Revolution Fast Base Foundation Stick in F1 £5.00
Granted this foundation is a tad too light for me, I should have probably gone a shade up but nonetheless, it's a brilliant foundation. It is medium to full coverage, it doesn't cling to any dry areas and it lasts on the skin for a fairly long time, around six to eight hours. The only issue I have is that if I don't wear a primer underneath then the foundation will accentuate my pores in my cheeks and I find that I need to blot my nose a few times throughout the day but that happens with most foundations.

Benefit Hoola Quickie Contour Stick £24.00
I adore everything about this product, from its bamboo designed packaging to the product itself. It's the creamiest formula I have found in a contour stick meaning it blends really easily without it disappearing into nothing. The colour is identical to their powder hoola, a mid-tone brown that is great for contouring whilst adding some warmth to the area. I apply this just under my cheekbones for definition and I love the look it gives.

L'Oreal Infallible Highlighter Stick in 503 Slay Rose £8.99
On first glance, this can be mistaken for a pale blush but in fact, it's a beautiful highlight. On my complexion, it's a lovely rosy pink sheen which looks best on the tops of cheekbones and at the end of my nose. It blends incredibly well on top of foundation to give a luminous glow to the skin. I sometimes even use this without foundation and it doesn't look unnatural in the slightest, it's a great highlighter.
