Georgina was telling me that she had been constantly recommended the Laura Mercier Translucent setting powder by a friend, however she was reluctant to buy it due to the cost, after trying her friends for the first time, she was hooked and said it was worth every penny!

MAC STROBE CREAM
I’ve been wanting to try out MAC’s very own strobe cream for a while but never really gravitated towards the product too much, so I decided to purchase the smaller ‘travel sized’ cream for just £12.00 and immediately fell in love with it. I find myself reaching for this item more often than not.
I thought my skin would feel thick after using it however I couldn’t have been more wrong. The cream was silky and sooo smooth, it melts into the skin instantly and really does quite literally turn up the glow on those cheekbones, brows and the rest of the skin although if you are prone to an oily T zone which the majority of us are, then I would not recommend smothering this onto your forehead or chin (I made this mistake already and it was not too pretty.)
As mentioned, the consistency of the product is very smooth and silky and applies with ease and works well with just using your fingers for application, so no brushes are needed, the warmth of your fingertips is enough to work the product into the face.
At a price point of £11 this spray is affordable, which is good news because it is a great product for everyone!
This product claims to be refreshing and hydrating spritz to revitalize your complexion throughout the day and evening. Okay so I’m just going to come out and say it, I love this product!
