The Best Loose Powder On The Market That I’ve Tried So Far

When it comes to loose powders and even pressed powders, I am very particular in what I like and what I do not like. A lot of the powders on the market are certainly not compatible for my pale complexion as they’re always a little too dark or end up oxidising on my skin, transforming into an unattractive shade of orange.

2 Products For Tackling Dark Under Eye Circles

Want to hear about two products that are great for tackling dark under eye circles? When it comes to dark circles I suffer from them badly. I guess its from all those late nights that I used to have.

Review | Rimmel Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder in 001 Transparent

Review | ELF Clarifying Pressed Powder in Ivory
