London was wonderful. There were so many sites to see, parks to explore and palaces to view. Not to mention the shopping. I made it to Harrods. About the only thing I was able to afford was a bottle of perfume. Harrods is definitely for the rich and famous. If you are a commoner, I suggest you save up before going there. However, there are plenty of boutiques and markets to purchase makeup, clothes and other goods, which brings me to my next subject. I purchased so many cosmetics, that I have to brake it down into several parts. When I was purchasing cosmetics, I wanted to get things I could not get at home. I came across several brands, so I begin with Part 1.
PART 1 – SEVENTEEN
1. Seventeen Miracle Matte Pressed Powder – I purchased this pressed powder at Boots pharmacy. It was in the color Silk Beige. It gives a matte, silky finish and up to 16 hours of shine control. You simply dab the powder onto your skin concentrating on the t-zone area. This pressed powder is perfect for when you are on the go. It’s great for those with oily skin. A lot of powders give you a cakey look and they dont last long enough. But with this powder it looks natural and your skin stays matte for hours. You may purchase this product at Boots Pharamcy, London £3.99
2. Seventeen Instant Glow Medium Bronze Bronzing Power – I also purchased this bronzing powder at Boots pharmacy. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this bronzing powder. This bronzer does not have a lot of pigmentation, so you have to use quite a bit of bronzer to get the look you desire. Also, the bronzer has no shimmer to it, but has more of a matte finish. One good thing is that is has a fairly slim container also fits in my small make up bag easily, so you can carry it in your handbag. £4.59
Between the two products, my favorite is the Seventeen Miracle Matte Pressed Powder. The Instant Glow Medium Bronze Bronzing Powder does not have a nice finish and has little pigmentation. But the Miracle Matter Pressed Powder does the job I really need.
