2x Lumene Base

Lumene Longwear Blur Makeup Powder   Lumene Longwear Blur Powder Foundation
Some Finnish makeup under the lens today. Both from Lumene, the Longwear Blur Powder Foundation and the Nude Perfection Glow Foundation.
Lightweight foundation is not a thing I would normally go for with my red-prone, acne scarred skin.  Sometimes you just want to see if you are perfect enough to sport that trendy glass skin look. So how did it suit me this time?

Lumene Longwear Blur Makeup Powder   Lumene Longwear Blur Powder Foundation

You definitely need to have a perfect, even skin for this. It would look absolutely stunning and high-end. Without it you will just end up looking like you have two days worth of grease on your face.
It is not hard to guess that this won't stay on well on a greasy skin. The powder foundation then? Well see the photo for yourself...
Foundation, are you kidding me, where is the coverage? It gives your skin the matte finish you could achieve with 1€ baby powder but it only lasts on your face for like five minutes. Seiously, no matter how often I applied this it would take five minutes for my face to look shiny again. Totally a waste of almost 20 euros, with that money you could get a year and a half worth of excellent powders. Even if you are going for the dewy look, you could get something so much better for so much cheaper.
Do check Lumene's other base makeup products though, most of them are excellent.

// Sanoisin, että molemmat tuotteet ovat rahanhukkaa. Meikkivoide antaa iholle tosi rasvaisen lookin, jolla en siis tarkoita trendikästä "lasi-ihoa". Ei peitä oikeastaan mitään. Puuteri taas himmentää ihon samannäköiseksi kuin talkki, joskaan ei pidä sitä kiillottomana yhtä kauan vaan kiilto pukkaa läpi jo noin viisi minuuttia puuteroinnin jälkeen. Todellakin ylihinnoiteltuja tuotteita nämä kaksi, Lumenella on tosi monia erinomaisia pohjameikkituotteita mutta nämä olivat ehdoton huti.

Rimmel Insta Duo Contour Stick in Light/ Clair Review

Rimmel Insta Duo Contour Stick in Light/ Clair Review
I have good experiences from Rimmel face makeup but they often tend to give my skin break outs. I dared to try this one out after a long time of not using the brand's base makeup on my face because it is used on such small areas.
The contour shade is okay but I mean the lighter one... I hope it is not meant to be used as the concealer? It does not cover anything at all and greases in like ten minutes after applying it. Okay for natural glow product on the cheekbones, nose bridge etc. but definitely not as a concealer!
To return to the darker shade, it is OK as I said before but not perfect. Greasy but the shade is nice, not cheap looking at all. Overall  wouldn't recommend this product as it is not going to stay on for long and for it's small price there are way better options available.

Rimmel Insta Duo Contour Stick in Light/ Clair Review

// Hyvin huonokestoinen tuote jota en suosittelisi. Vaalea sävy ei sovi ainakaan peitevoiteeksi koska se ei peitä yhtään ja lähteen liukumaan iholla heti. Tummassa sentään on ainakin sävynsä puolesta potentiaalia mutta samalla rahalla saa paljon parempiakin tuotteita joten miksi tyytyä tähän rasvakasa-duoon? Rimmelin pohjameikit ovat kyllä yleensä olleet hyviä, joskin ne saavat ihoni kukkimaan.

The definition of perfection; Sephora Cream Lip Stain

Sephora Cream Lip Stain matte liquid lipstick review makeup blog

(Shade name to be added later!) Just perfect. The most perfect liquid lipstick I have ever had on my lips. Stays on like ink, doesn't dry and is super pigmented. Easy to apply and the finish is stunningly beautiful. Won't smudge. Absolute 10/10. No wonder this product has 470k likes on their website.
The only minus is that it is not so easy to get these if you live in Finland and that all the shades are so yummy that you just have to have them.

// Tämä on yksinkertaisesti täydellinen. Paras nestemäinen huulipuna jota olen koskaan testannut; super peittävä, super pysyvä, ei suttaannu ja helppo levittää. Todella kaunis lopputulos. Sephoran sivuila tällä on 470 000 tykkäystä, enkä yhtään ihmettele.
Ainoa miinus että näitä on vähän hankalampi saada Suomeen ja se että näitä on niin monia ihania sävyjä ja ne on kaikki pakko saada!
