5 Underrated Makeup Items

Hello beauties,

Recently I brought you 5 makeup items that are worth the hype, this week I bring to you 5 makeup items that don’t have enough hype. Here’s my picks that are worth checking out x

Innoxa Skin Perfect Pore Vanishing Cream

This is one of the best drugstore primers I’ve ever used! I honestly think this is a dupe for the Benefit Porefessional, click here for my comparison of the two.

Coty Air Spun Loose Face Powder- Translucent
