I have recently subscribed to Beauty Pie, which is a company that sells high-end products at a very affordable price. For £10 a month you can purchase their products for a fraction of the normal retail cost. Check them out on http://www.beautypie.com. This month I thought I would try the Great Skin Foundation as I have heard great reports from fellow bloggers on how good it was.
Well, it didn’t disappoint. This is a great foundation. It applies really well and can definitely hold its own against any of the top brand foundations, like Chanel, Dior or Armani. The shade I got was 300 (Beige) and would say this shade is great for medium skin tones. This foundation normally retails at £30 but if you subscribe it costs £6.30.
Another product that I have been wanting to try is the Cellularose Brightening CC Serum from By Terry. I was a little undecided as to which shade to choose, but went for the Shade 4 Sunny Flash. When it arrived, I thought it might be too dark for me, but when applied it was fine. It is their darkest shade, and the other shades look good if you prefer a more pink or light shade.
If you have a perfect, young skin, you could wear this on its own, but it is also great for layering under a foundation, which is what I prefer. It is a gorgeous product and I loved the effect, but it is quite pricey at around £70. A good dupe for this would be the L’Oreal True Match Highlight in Golden Glow at £8.99.
So, I was pleased with both products, but I have only been using them for a few days, so I need to try them out for a bit longer. I did try the By Terry serum with a different foundation ( the Micro-Mineral Serum Foundation from Beauty Pie, which is also a great foundation), but it didn’t like it at all, and it did not blend well and the foundation rolled into balls. So it might be a bit hit and miss with some foundations.
This is both products on the skin. You can see that the By Terry serum gives a glow under the foundation.
That’s it for this week guys.
lots of love, Gail xxx
