Beauty Haul - Laura Mercier, Too Faced, Kiehl's and Armani

As my skin type has changed dramatically, from oily to dry, during my course of Roaccutane, I thought it would be worth investing in some new products that were more suitable.

I had to start from scratch with my base makeup, as all my long wearing foundations like Double Wear and All Nighter started to look cakey. I popped into Space NK to see if the beauty consultants could help me find some new products. I was recommended the Laura Mercier Silk Creme Moisturising Foundation and the Translucent Powder from the same brand.

I was a little scared of using a foundation that was labelled as moisturising, as previously with my oily skin I avoided them all costs. The foundation is extremely dewy but when set with the powder it creates the perfect base.

To go under my new Space NK purchases, I picked up the Kiehl's Ultra Light Daily SPF and the Too Faced Hangover X Primer. You'd think I was mad for buying SPF in the winter but Roaccutane makes your skin extremely sensitive to the sun and I want to prevent premature ageing. The moisturiser is a lovely light texture that doesn't leave a white cast on the face like most SPF's.

The Too Faced Hangover X Primer has been raved about on YouTube, and with good reason. It creates a wonderfully moisturised base to apply makeup over - a must for anyone with dry skin.

While at a consultation with Armani in Chester, I picked up their High Precision Concealer, which has the tiniest brush on the end, even smaller than liquid liner brushes. I thought this would be amazing to pin point conceal scarring, but it also can be used for the under eyes as it is easy to blend.

I also kindly recieved a Lip Maestro and Lip Magnet from Kate at the Chester Armani counter, you can read about my experience here.

I love all my new beauty bits, it's so nice to try things I wouldn't have been able to use with oily skin.



  1. I really want to try the Armani concealer! The brush sounds interesting.

  2. I think I'll have to try the Too Faced primer because my skin has gone super dry this autumn. The Laura Mercier powder has been on my wish list for ages!

  3. Ahh I live near Chester and I noticed that there was a Armani counter there, I really want to try one of their foundations. I have oily skin but I really want to try the Kiehls SPF, I really trust their skincare and it sounds fab x
