Newest Beauty Buys

Hi everyone, today's post is some beauty products that I've bought recently. They're not new releases, but some of them are new to me, so I'll give you a first impression of the products and recommend ones I like to you.

MAC Strobe Cream
I got sold this in MAC as a glowy primer. I wouldn't call it a primer that keeps makeup on for ages, but it feels nice and moisturising and makes my skin glowy. I think I'm going to try mixing it into my foundation to give my base a more dewy look. I decided to get the travel size as I wanted to test it out before getting the full size.

The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2%
I featured this in a recent skincare routine, but so far I'm really enjoying using it. I see a noticeable difference in my blemishes, and it leaves my skin feeling as though it's just had a treatment. The Ordinary are a 'no fuss' brand and so it's really affordable, great value for money.

Benefit Bene Balm
This is a repurchase because I love this lip balm a lot! It leaves my skin feeling really smooth and hydrated and the light red tint is perfect, a typical 'your lips but better' shade. It's really low maintenance, no need for a lip liner, and can be applied really easily.

Mac Prep + Prime Fix+ Spray
I had always wanted to try this product as I see so many people using it. I've used it before makeup and after makeup. When I use it before my makeup, it leaves my skin feeling really fresh and hydrated. However, I haven't noticed much difference in my makeup, even when I use it as a setting spray too. I haven't used it many times yet, so hopefully I'll notice more of a difference soon.

Mac Studio Fix Fluid
I was in need of a new foundation and thought I'd try this one. I went into Mac and asked for the highest coverage foundation and told them that I'm normally the palest shade, to which they said I wasn't. I wouldn't actually call this foundation full coverage, maybe a medium coverage. It does look like on the skin and seems to last pretty well throughout the day, but I'd prefer more coverage. I was colour tested and given NW13, which I think is the second to lightest shade. I think the paler shade would've been better though, as I am so fair, but with a bit of bronzer down my neck it works okay,
