I’ve not been up to a great deal, makeup-wise, this week, so basically today’s post is a million self-photos.  I can only apologise.

I’ve gotten into “the UK’s #1 foundation”, which would be Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse.  I first used it in the shade ‘Cocoa’ to achieve this effect:

… and found that indeed, it did apply like a silky-smooth dream.  So I bought it in the lightest shade they make it, 004 Light Porcelain.  The first day I wore it I was terribly impressed with how well it lasted, didn’t make me look greasy, didn’t need powder etc.  I asked my most honest critic, Chloe, whether it made me look ashy, pasty, greasy, flaky, chalky or dead, to which she replied “no.  I… didn’t even notice you… had skin, it’s so good.”

These photos were taken after probably 8 hours’ wear, but they don’t really show the foundation up all that well.  They do, however, show that I need to sleep for ten years or so.

Here are some more photos I took today when wearing it again.

Today I wondered if it was a bit too pale, perhaps I should have gone the 2nd lightest shade.  When it’s on sale at Superdrug again I might give it a shot.

Until then, here I am in my new Iron Fist skull suit.  Just for fun.  Cast your vote now on whether I should keep it or send it back.
