FOTD: 1/12 Sportsgirl Animal Instinct Palette

On Sunday I bought the Animal Instinct Cosmetic Palette from Sportsgirl, and I havent yet tried it, SO I thought Id do a Face Of The Day using the products from the palette!!

Here's the palette itself:

The 2 colours on the left are the lipglosses, the 2 colours in the middle is the blush, and the 2 colours on the right are the eyeshadows.

Also on my face I used the products below to create a subtle base.
L2R: The Face Shop Make Up Base, ModelCo Face Base Skin Primer, Revlon Skin Lights, Vani-T Krush Minerals Liquid Foundation.

Face Shop Make Up Base in 01 Green
Ive tried other green correctors such as MUFE Corrective Makeup Base and Maybelline Redness Corrective Concealor, but this one is so easy to use compared to those 2!!! The texture is really smooth and it leaves your face looking remarkably less flushed, and has a velvet matte finish! Love it!!

ModelCo Face Base Skin Primer
This is about $10 from ModelCo counters in DJ's, I used this every. single. day. last year, but then got turned off because I bought a bad one which left my skin with white fur balls all over it? It was weird? Anyways I couldnt return it because I chucked out the receipt like WTF? ANyways learnt my lesson, keep receipts. ANyways, Onto the product itself, its wonderful. It says its a hydrating face primer and can be used instead of moisturizer, but I tend to slap on my moisturizer and then this ontop and it makes my makeup last significantly longer and doesnt make my face feel tight like other primers!!

Revlon Skinlights Instant Skin Brightner in 01 Natural Light
I guess this is like an Illuminizer? Ive had this one tube for about 1 year now and its still as good as ever, however its one of those products that arent great, but arent bad, so I use it for a week straight then forget about it. But its gorgeous, I definitely reccomend it! Its not GLITTERY its more shimmery and toned down, so you can use it by itself or mix it in with foundation, or put it where you'd like to highlight i.e. cheeks, eyebrow bone, etc.

Vani-T Krush Minerals Liquid Foundation
Ugh. Just horrible. It looks so tacky and the skin and its hard to blend compared to other foundations I use. I do not like this at all. The colour was matched incorrectly and the lady who served me was just a plain old BITCH. Its too expensive, doesnt last long, shitest mineral makeup Ive ever used ay. Ill give it a point for being a mineral makeup, and the cute packaging, but apart from that NUP.

Its kinda Spring-time inspired :)
Listening to Rihannas new album!!
Stupid in Love is the best but saddest song.

I'm gettin back to ya about the question you asked about the matte chance moisturizer. doesn't leave your skin tight at all - i have similar problems like you and this is absolutely perfect. i think you'd like it :)
