On Trial: L’Oreal Paris Skin Perfection BB Cream & Face Of Australia HD Primer

I’m going to try and do this kind of post more often, a bit of a quick one noting down some initial thoughts on some products that are in my “on trial” basket at home. They may get a more indepth review at a later stage, feature in a favourites or disappointing products (eep!) and hopefully empties!

L’Oreal Paris Skin Perfection BB Cream RRP $24.99AUD – The Skin Perfection range is new to the L’Oreal skincare lineup, featuring magpie inducing pink packaging the range is aimed at those in their 20’s. While i’m not so much in my 20’s anymore I was drawn to the packaging and the images of Blake Lively gracing the stand (she’s gorgeous isn’t she!).

I’ve only given this one shot so far, mainly because I like to use BB creams on the weekend when I’m just hitting up the shops or running the usual domestic errands. The coverage is light (to be expected with a BB cream) and it felt hydrating enough for my skin. I did add a bit of powder to keep things in place and give a tad more coverage. So far this is a good-un but like mentioned before will mostly only be bought out on weekends when i’m doing the no makeup, makeup thing.

Face of Australia High Definition Primer RRP $13.95AUD – My love of the original FOA Face Base Primer has been well documented on my blog and youtube channel. So when this new one hit the shelves and my current tube of primer was nearing the end I thought I’d try it out. I mean HD means I should look flawless right? I’m on the fence about this one and think it needs some more trialling before I come to a decision about it. I will mention if you do try this out remember to shake the tube each time before use, I made that mistake yesterday and it was a runny mess. Also try not to use too much product, I made this mistake on my first use and my foundation balled up and looked very very average. It reminds me a lot of the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer (for reference, I did not get along with this primer at all). If you’re a fan of that this might be up your alley. To be continued…
