Hey Guys,
I've always talked about my battle with oily skin and my struggle to find the right primer for my skin. I recently picked up an oil control cream from the seaweed collection at the body shop and another primer by seventeen. I'm all for trying new things but I was hesitant when I felt the consistency of the seaweed oil control cream as its very jelly-like and I've had bad experiences with primers like that. What sucks about this is that its only 50ml but it is lightweight and is said to control excess sebum and shine throughout the day. I do like the primer by seventeen. Its thicker, its beige and its immediately matte when its used. I have used both products once and I can honestly say that the amount of shine and oil my face produces had dramatically decreased. I'll give another update after I've used it for an extensive period of time.

I also picked up another product from the body shop's frosted berries collection which is only available around the Christmas period. I purchased it last year and sadly broke it and I just couldn't wait till it came back in stock. It smells beautiful and it also has a shimmer which I love! There's so many other products in this collection and I 100% recommend them.

I am so here for L'oreal deciding to extend their shades in the true match foundation. Black women are finally being included. I cannot tell you how many times I've been disappointed after visiting a shop which has only 1 shade of foundation for black women. I've been a fan of this foundation for a while and initially, I purchased the 10W which is Deep Golden. Well, then this extended shade thing happened and apparently I'm a 9C. I can notice the difference between those two shades but they both match me perfectly, which is absolutely crazy. Either way, shoutout to L'oreal for taking this big step.

I saved the best for last. NYX. *sigh* 
This brand has captured my heart and I am so grateful that boots stocks it. They have good quality products for half the price! I've been wanting to get their lip products for a while but never had the time to actually go into a store and test it. I somehow stumbled into Selfridges the other weekend and I had to test all the shades I had written down from watching numerous Youtube videos.
Honestly, the matte lip creams let me down for some reason but it is very soft on your lips. Just like the Maybelline vivid matte. Beauty mark from the Lingerie collection is everything! It dries fast and well, its extremely matte! 
Feel free to let me know what products you've tried and if you would purchase them again.

Love,
Rie
