Did you think I’d forgotten you? Perhaps you hoped I had.
House of Cards reference aside, I know it’s been a while. Amid final year university projects and exhibitions, stress and anxiety, job prospects and reality creeping up on me, I lost myself. But I’m here now, pretending to be ready to take on the world.
June has came and gone, bringing second thoughts, sunshine and sweat, but also good times, excellent skincare and fantastic music.

Yep, totally making a reference to Batman v Superman in the title (which you will have to watch for yourself to see where you stand; I’m still on the fence about it) and please do tell me your opinions on it in the comments!
Anyway, this post will explore which matte foundation is better. Both drugstore, both hyped, both claiming to hold 24H – but which one does the job better?

There are certain days in a girl’s life when even putting makeup on can seem like a chore. On days like this, kudos to you, if you can go in public without wearing the slightest bit of makeup… but, until my face gets better (probably when I’m in my thirties), 5 minutes to get my glam on is all I need.

Whether you have a bad skin day or a bad skin life (like me), random pimples, redness and a dull complexion are not fun. To give you a bit of a background on my skin situation, I have pretty much struggled with acne since I was around 12 years old and it hasn’t went away. It is the one thing I am most embarrassed and self-aware of.

The rules of the game have changed. Gone are the times when I used to swear by the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer.
I present to you my new holy grail concealer: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind (in Light). Yes, I’m totally aware I am approximately 359 years behind and everyone started using this in the Prehistoric Era most probably, but yet here I am, praising it.

It’s finally time for me to go on my summer break, back home to Romania, after a successful year of studying in London – this means lots (with an angry focus on LOTS) of packing. And with me being the hoarder that I am, I do tend to keep stuff that I no longer need (e.g.: “I’m sure I’ll manage one more squeeze off that tube”, or “Maybe I’ll need that one day”).
