Artistry Loose Powder from Amway
I have an extremely oily skin, so I have to dab some powder on my face to make it look less like a frying pan. I have always used a compact powder as it’s cheap and easy to carry around but it never lasts long. I started using Artistry Loose Powder two weeks ago and it is simply great. It lasts for the entire day and controls oil without blocking pores. The best part is it blends in neatly with the skin and gives a natural glow. I wear it to work everyday and the matte effect lasts for very long. And when used with foundation, it can give photo editing softwares a run for their money as it makes the skin look flawless. I have an acne prone skin but since Artistry is non-comedonegic I don’t have to worry about clogged pores. You can pick this powder in two colours — fair and medium.

NYX lip smacking fun colours
The NYX range of Lip Smacking Fun Colours includes a lovely dusky pink shade called Mars. And unlike other lipsticks I’ve come across, the colour actually was the same shade on my lips. The lipstick glides on very easily and feels a bit oily. However, make sure your lips are well moisturised and buffed because the colour seeped into little cracks and made them look prominent. This lipstick bleeds a bit so I recommend you use it with a pink lip liner. A slick of it gives a great natural pink colour and building up can give you a frosty 80s look. Not recommended. However, we love the au natural effect that makes it ideal for work (it lasts a good six hours) but we especially love that it’s also cruelty free.
