Products I tried and loved in London!

Hello there,

Thought I would do a quick run through some of the stand-out products that I got to try at MUSE a couple of weeks ago...

*please note, these are all products that I tried only. I haven't bought them yet and therefore don't really know best places to buy or best prices. All I know is the products are fab!

MUFE HD Powder

This is a talc-free, uber finely milled finishing powder and it is WOW. It's so fine, it literally smokes when you take the lid off. Leaves skin with a satiny finish and not a horrible dry chalky finish that some loose powders leave you with. As I didn't get the opportunity to get to the store, I didn't buy this, but think I've found a fairly decent dupe-ish product... Illamasqua loose powder; although not talc-free, still has a gorgeous finish and I actually use the Pink Brightening powder - gorgeous!

MAC Patina E/S

Believe the hype. This e/s is gorgeous. enough said.

MAC White F&B

This stuff was a dream product during the course, because we were working on different people each day and it was so so easy to custom blend a foundation shade. You can literally mix this with any liquid or cream foundation to lighten it, without it losing it's pigment. Fab Fab Fab and I will be ordering some of this, through mail order as it is a pro product.

Louise Young Foundation Brush

(3rd one, at the bottom of the page) This little baby has been showcased by Pixiwoo on YT a lot and it's difficult to see why it's anything more special than a traditional flat foundation brush. But, using it, you discover that it is super firm, but as soft as a feather. It doesn't make foundation streak as the bristles are so densely packed. Again, I will be purchasing this as soon as.

Hakuhodo Flat Top Kabuki

Love love love this brush! was amazing for buffing over the skin to create an unbelieveably flawless finish with foundation. Particularly worked well with HD Foundation and Pro Lumiere. Like the LY foundation brush, amazingly soft but super dense. This can be bought online (about $54 dollars I think), but I think I will wait til next years IMATS and keep my fingers crossed that Hakuhodo will be there!!

Hope that's useful!
