Interested to get your thoughts on both ranges of make up - looking for matte, non-shiny finish as my skin tends to go a bit oily.
And also want something long lasting that will see me through the day.
You should try Este Lauder 12 hour wear, its fab! Last all day and not at all oily. Its around 35 euro a bottle, but lasts forever. I love MAC for eyeshadow and gloss, but I really dont find any of their foundations long lasting. Never tried Armani. Good luck!
love mac for eye shadows..........I use Este Lauder double weasr this stuff is fab.......Defo the best matte in the market........are £20 stg lasts forever
i use armani luminous silk foundation - have used mac previously and think armani is the best for even coverage,light weight and so long lasting. i tried chanel vitalumiere from rave reviews here and went straight back to armani- but thats just me !i know they have a matt version of luminous silk.
chanel double perfection in the tube, its great!! I swear by it, its a cream to powder make up and its brilliant! Most foundations just slide off my face, but this stays put, also for a night out (where your foundation can really disappear!!!) I use no 7, make up base underneath.
have just started using the prescriptives range of makeup - think it's called perfect skin or something like that - it's the medium-full coverage one but it goes on really lovely and stays all day - even in the hot sun when my makeup would normally slide off this one stays. Expensive though. 45 euros.
i used to love mac make up but have since changed to TIGI range. I found when using mac foundation and powder i used to end up with dry clumps - that may be due to my skin type and not the make up - but since switching i havent had this problem at all. I find it long lasting. Have also tried eye liner and eyeshadow which i would recommend also.
Was only introduced to this range 2 months ago when i had my make up trial for wedding and have been using it ever since
I love the Armani range as well. I went into BTs last week and got one of those makeovers, I felt airbrushed coming out. Spent a fortune on the foundation and cream blusher and a few other things. It is very long lasting light foundation.
MAC foundation is way to dry for my skin.
I found out about a make up here on WOL and I just LOOOOOOOOOVE it!! It's called [b:3643npdt]Make Up Forever, Mat Velvet[/b:3643npdt]!! It's really yummy!! My skin would be combination skin and would get oily throughout the night. I got a tester of this make up and it seriously works dreams. It stays on all night too!!
