Mac Pack!

I recently went to my MAC counter to pick up my basics - Studio fix fluid in NC20 and my Mineralize skin finish natural in medium. 

And i FINALLY got my 187 I've wanted it for ages! Yippee! :)
When i was there i had a gander as the PLUSHGLASS's and found this colour AMPLE PINK.

ooooohh this is the first gloss I've had from mac but i absolutely love it to pieces and i new it would go great over my all time favourite Creme Cup (creme sheen) personally i don't find it sticky at all and it feels really hydrating and last a very long time, soo... this gets a big thumps up from me :D.

Here are the two beauty's together the look exactly the same (excuse the messyness lol)

One thing i have to say is the the lid on the PLUSHGLASS is so soft just like the lid on the SFF, i love it, i cant stop touching it lol creepy!

Another favorite of mine I've been loving this month is my IMPASSIONED lipstick (Amplified).
 Its a Great BRIGHT PINK, matte finish and looks great for Summer Time with all the BOLD colours to wear along side it.

I do find this finish very drying though so its probably best to put Vaseline or any lip balm you have underneath. :) But other than that its a great colour. I've been looking for the perfect corals/Orange blushes + lipsticks this summer so I'll let you know what find. :)

My NEW Primer!

I recently have become very suspicious of ingredients in beauty products and I've been trying to go PARABEN FREE!! I've actually been working on a project to do with Parabens for my course; so I'd like to think I'm fully updated with Parabens as of yet. :)
I scurried down to my local Superdrug to pick up my BEAUTY CARD!.. (Hallelujah they finally Caved In); and I was looking down the extensively long line of skincare, searching for a Paraben FREE Moisturiser to my daily routine. Right at the very bottom shelf almost unnoticeable, i came across a new organic brand called 'Amie'.

Morning DewMatte-finish Moisturiser for the softest, dewiest shine free skin. 90g
Natural Actives: Organic Rosehip; Bilberry; Vitamin E.
Mineral oil free, pH balanced, Paraben free.

I thought when I used it, it would just be a basic moisturiser but no Its MAGICAL! Its looks Thick in the tube but honestly its not you only need a smidgen on the places you need it the most, for me its my T-ZONE. You can feel it settling into the skin really quickly. My one PET HATE with some moisturiser is that your skin feels tacky, Sticky or film like. BUT this doesn't your left with a matte, smooth and silky base to start your foundation!! 
What drew me to this product the most was its 'Matte-finish'. Now on the website it says its designed for teenagers, now i don't know about you but i hate when companies claim they are miracles for teens so i was a bit sceptical.

I think this a perfect dupe for the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion.
For a start it looks practically the same but the DDM is so thick and it cost £18 and i find its way to thick and heavy to wear under makeup and as for the Amie Morning Dew Lotion I think I'd have to say I'm not only saving money I'm getting a better formulation and its Paraben free! :)  

I hope this helped some girls who dont like these clear silicone primers like smashbox or gosh but want something moisterizing and mattifiying in one bottle well i've found it! :D
