As promised I'm now back with a proper blog post and it's going to be a review of one of the more recent additions to my make up collection- the Myface Cosmetics Mymix foundation. I originally bought this because not only did one of my favourite bloggers, dizzybrunette3 pronounce it to be her holy grail foundation, but it is also supposed to be a favourite of Millie Mackintosh, Cheryl Cole and Kate Moss! (Don't believe me? Read this article that Corrie found-celebrity-favourite-foundations) So naturally I thought what is good enough for them is certainly good enough for me...
Even though this is counted as a drugstore foundation it's certainly on the pricey side at £15.99 (plus p+p as it's only really available from the website). I was lucky as there was an offer on when I bought mine so I got it for about £12, but the main question is is it worth the price? Well I there's no question about it this is a really lovely foundation...the packaging is fairly sleek and professional (albeit not that exciting), however the first thing that really impressed me was the wide shade range available consisting of nine different colours. These shades are also split up into three categories- fair, medium and medium/dark, which makes it quite easy to select your colour without swatching. I went for 'fair 2' as I'm usually the second shade up in other foundations and I do find this to be a good match, although it might be a bit on the dark side in winter. The shades also seem to be quite yellow toned which works to, as the website claims 'transform complexions for a natural, healthy, just-back-from-holiday glow'. I'd say that the consistency is a bit thicker than my beloved Bourjois Healthy Mix, but still on the runny side if you compare it with Rimmel Wake Me Up for example, so it still feels quite light on the face whilst providing a good medium to full coverage and a nice satin finish. This also means it lasts a long time and because it has no SPF you won't get the dreaded ghost face in photos if you wear this on a night out either. Here's what it looks like on applied with the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush...
So overall I do think this is a very good foundation (Not sure about the instant image upgrade claim that's on the packaging though!) and probably my second favourite to the Bourjous Healthy Mix foundation and serum. However, as I prefer to wear quite a light foundation in the day at the moment I'd say this is more my perfect night out foundation, but if your a girl that likes their face to be a bit less dewy and light than I do then this could be your holy grail...if only it was more around the ten pound mark and available in Boots!
As I said in my earlier video post I've just pretty much spent my day making videos and doing bloggy things, I figured I deserved a day doing that after my weekend of sorting out my new room in Sheffield (which by the way has a walk in wardrobe!), off to work for the day tomorrow though...such exciting times haha
I hope you all have a lovely night guys!
