When it comes to face powders i literally cannot leave the house without one. If i had to carry one item of make up around with me it would most probably be powder!! I have tried many over the past few years and a favorite of mine which i used continuously was L'oreal true match powder. This was my number one holy grail powder. One problem with it though was the packaging. The amount of money i spent buying new ones as the clasp to shut it would ALWAYS break. It drove me mad!!! I decided i needed to change. After trying numerous other ones such as Mac mineralised skin finish and alternative dug store ones such as collection 2000 and Max factor I very nearly thought I'm never going to find other one I love. I can't STAND the cakey feeling of powder on my face and with these other ones i tried i would always get it and especially if i were to re apply a lot in the day. I don't have oily skin but i do tend to get a oily t zone so powder is always a must......
Then one day in boots i decided to have a look at the MyFace products. I tended to always bypass this section but there range of face powders caught my eye this time!
First of all i really liked the sleek packaging, it is a thin shape that you can easily fit into a small bag if your going out. Secondly the feel of the powder was very light and silky. It also didn't have a horrible smell which i found all the max factor ones did!
I have now been using this powder daily for about a month and i absolutely LOVE it!! It has no cakey feeling and give the face a matt, shine free look which lasts for a few hours until you need to re apply.
I recommend this product HIGHLY as i actually never thought i would like a powder as much as L'oreal....oh how i was mistaken!!

Yes it had been an incredibly long time since i made a post on my blog and also since i made a video on youtube.
I have decided to start this again as i really do miss this community and sharing my loves and hates with you when it comes down to beauty, fashion and general life itself!!
The reason why i have been absent for a while is that I haven't had the easiest year. During the last few months i have been building myself back up again and getting my confidence back.
The start of last year and continuing into this year, I've had a lot of personal problems. To be completely frank with you all as I want you to understand where i have been is that I suffered with an eating disorder and was going through a really unstable and volatile relationship that in turn shattered my confidence.
I am now a completely different person to the very unhappy girl i became. I have completely turned my life back round again, I am redoing my final year of university again and to be honest with you all, picking back up, what felt like, my life in little pieces off the ground was one of the hardest things i have ever had too do.
Anyone going through anything similar to this, I know how hard it is. If it wasn't for my Mum, Dad and friends it would of been a much harder struggle but i did it.
I am in a very good place again now, I feel in control of my life, uni work and most importantly myself.
If anyone is going through anything similar please feel free to message me, i will try my best to give you my honest opinion and advise.
There was a point when i thought i would never be happy again but when things are utterly terrible, honestly things to get better with time.
I'm now in a stable relationship with one of my best friends Mo and i could not be happier, he made me realise how i should of been treated and girls, If your boyfriend doesn't make you feel like a princess he is not worth it.
I hope you will all understand why i have been gone and i hope you will all be interested in what i have to say and i actually thought it would be difficult being so honest with you all but in actual fact its not. I'm completely over that stage in my life and I feel comfortable talking about it because its in the past.
Stay tuned for a blog about a few products I'm loving right now and also stayed tuned to my youtube and there will be a new video up shortly!
Thank you so much for all staying followers. it means a lot :)
lots of love, Holly xxxxx
