Freedom Makeup London Pro Studio Oil Control Base

Hello my little buttons!

I purchased the Freedom Makeup London Oil Control Base Anti-shine lotion a few months ago, but really wanted to test it out thoroughly before writing this blog. I find primers quite hard to review until I have used them with a viaraty of foundations, bb creams etc. Its priced at £8, the packaging is the same as the Freedom Makeup London skincare range, silver sleek and super functional with a pump. My favourite way to get a product out! Hygienic and you have a fair bit of control on how much primer comes out. It feels like a cooling gel to touch and a little goes a long way, I have tried using my fingers to apply the anti shine lotion as well as a Real Techniques buffing brush and I have found the same results with both ways of application. It actually works!!!! With bb creams and lighter foundations I’ve found I might need a light powdering in the afternoon as apose to the normal 4/5 during the day but with a matte foundation this primer is unstoppable. What I found quite unique is as well as keeping my oily t zone at bay, my skin stayed really hydrated throughout the day. Quite often with mattifying primers/foundations they can cause dry patches on my chin and around my mouth but I didn’t find this an issue at all. I wasn’t having to powder through the day as even towards the afternoon I had a healthy ‘glow from within’ look not an ‘oil slick’ look! If Freedom Makeup could add some pore blurring magic to this primer I would never use anything else again lol. I’ll add some photos of the primer in action! I’d love to hear what your favourite primers are in the comments down below!

Real technieques Expert Face Brush Review 

   

Hello my little buttons!

Here’s a quick review on the Real Technieques Expert Face Brush. This is an ultra firm domed oval head shaped brush. The bristles are synthetic taklon which are hand cut and cruelty free, which is always a nice bonus. I’ll start by saying this brush is a total win for me, I love how my foundations looks after using this. Even the foundations I own that I just can’t get the coverage using my fingers or other brushes, this brush really adds to the coverage as it doesn’t hold much product and applies evenly over the face. I use a ‘dab and down’ motion when applying foundation which also adds to the overall flawless look at the end. It’s soft and easy to clean. It’s only £9.99 which compared to a lot of highend brushes is very affordable. Ive not had any bristles falling out either which is a big annoyance of mine. I feel totally in control of how much product im using and if I want to build up more in certain areas than others it blends seamlessly. Highly recommend this brush!
