Rimmel Fix & Perfect Pro Makeup Primer in 002

Usually I can’t use any primers with my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation as it is a VERY fussy and nitpicky foundation- just smears and slides and looks awful!

I’m so so happy with this 🙌🏼 definitely recommend! Think I got it on Amazon UK for £5+ so it’s VERY affordable. I’ve tried Smashbox primers over the same Estee Lauder foundation and it didn’t work out either 😞 and this is literally 1/4 the price and works so much better!

It goes on so smoothly and does not leave any chalky residue like the W7 Prime Magic Face Primer did. I got the W7 primer on Amazon UK for £3 and it does leave your face feeling deliciously smooth and covers all your pores really well, as if it has been airbrushed, but any application of liquids makes it flake right off. Which is reaaally not ideal. I use it only if I can’t be ars*d having foundation on, but still want my skin to look smooth.

The W7 primer is very similar to the TONYMOLY Egg Pore silky smooth balm and The Body Shop all-in-one instablur, which I did a review of previously here.

It helps manage my oily skin too, which is a huge plus point. In fact, I had to go over with the Mario Badescu facial spray and skip a setting powder because it started looking a bit dry and I didn’t want it to end up cakey.

Thoughts on the 2016 US Election

Whenever someone says “stop being so PC“, “they’re only words” or anything along those lines, it makes my blood boil. Apparently calling someone out on their behaviour is being “over-sensitive”?

If it was a single person ranting on Twitter I can simply block and ignore it, and even if I respond and they continue spreading hate their pool of influence is considerably smaller. The President of the United States carries considerable clout and influence, and can instigate violence/ ill-will (as we have seen throughout the campaign) with his inflammatory words even if he does not introduce any questionable policies.

Not only does dismissing this as “bloody ignorant brainwashed Liberal bullshit” spread the message that this type of speech is okay and acceptable, it tells kids that if they want to grow up to become the president, inflammatory speech is the way to go. People in positions of power and in the public eye are held to higher standards of morals than the general public*.

(*LOL I knew slaving over Media Law in first year would come to use someday, right to know and injunctions and all that jazz)

Even if he does not actually act on any of his claims that got him his presidency (and it seems to be looking that way), it has made some bigots think that being openly abusive to minorities is alright and justified, that the administration approves of it. Already seeing the rise of hate crime in the US because the 72% feel oppressed.

If you voted for DT and say “I’m not racist, I don’t support his type of speech or behaviour..” etc, I have some news for you- you already have indirectly supported that! “I’m not racist” or otherwise.

You just cared more about yourself and what you thought you would gain than the fallout along the way from your own fellow supporters who are willing to go to even more extreme lengths.Because hey- you can bet if DT doesn’t try to “get rid of immigrants” or “kill Muslims” or make people undergo conversion therapy… some of his supporters are pretty much ready to do it themselves. 👌🏼

P.s. Just like the defenders of unborn fetuses who wait in front of Planned Parenthood to shoot women (because if the fetus is gone, might as well kill the mother too eh? Never mind that some women killed were there to get counselling/ family planning advice etc).

P.p.s I doubt anyone I’m friends with actually supports him but y’know just go along with it I wanna rant. Can’t believe I have to put disclaimers bec inevitably someone will be like “WELL NOT EVERYONE” blah blah blah

Ending off with this. I’m proud to be a “bloody Liberal”.
