I also have a small eye palette update for you. I’ve neglected my Sleek Au Naturel palette during the summer, so I haven’t made that much progress. But I started to use it again. Here’s what it looks like now:

And I’m using a small Manhattan compact as well. The lightest shade (top) is my current inner corner shade. The pan’s almost empty. The orange shade (2nd from the top) is gone because I used it to make my own orange stamping polish. The light brown shade (2nd from bottom) is almost finished because I’ve been using this one almost every day for a few weeks now. Once the light brown shade is finished, I’ll start using the medium brown shade (bottom). This is what the Manhattan compact looks like now:

And this is it for this week. I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Reducing My Samples Stash – Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation Sand

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing Maybelline’s Dream Satin Liquid Foundation which I have (well, had) a sample of. The shade I tried is Sand. This foundation promises to make pores appear invisible and to create a perfect complexion. Sounds… cocky! I’ve now given the foundation a try, so let me tell you more about it.

I love how the foundation felt when I applied it. It was dreamy. And satiney. Wow! However, it was impossible to blend the foundation into my skin. I tried, and tried, and tried again – but it didn’t work. And I was disappointed to see that this foundation settled into my pores and fine lines, thus making them more visible.

This foundation doesn’t provide much coverage. However, it still manages to look unnatural and cakey. And on top of that I’ve noticed that this foundation oxidises quite a bit. My face looked orange after just a few hours.

Based on my experience I wouldn’t recommend this foundation. If you want a natural looking foundation that provides good coverage without looking like it’s been caked on, you need to look elsewhere. Maybelline’s Dream Satin Liquid Foundation is available as 30ml for £8.
