Mac's Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

So I've had my eye on Mac's Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation, it's actually been sat in my safari list on my phone so I didn't forget which one I had been looking at. It's a powder and foundation in one with medium to full coverage, now I'm not sure if this is just me but I don't see how a powder has a full coverage, maybe it depends on how you apply it? I'm not sure but I was intrigued to try this as it's described as a foundation I thought this could be ideal on the days where I don't wanted to wear a liquid foundation but I still want something on my face.

Anywhooo I went into Mac last week and I got matched up with NW25 which is actually darker than the Mineralize powder I have in light plus, I slyly think it wasn't right for me from the start but I do use it. It was applied with the 135 large flat powder brush and when I looked in the mirror I could see it immediately went matte and the colour was just exactly what I wanted, not too pale and not too dark.

Weekend in Manchester

A couple of weeks ago me and some of the girls went to Manchester to surprise Naquelle. She moved up there a couple of years ago or so and we hadn't all yet made a trip there for a girls weekend. We had a group chat with all of us and it was discussed of doing something towards the end of May as it was Naquelle's and Shonola's birthdays (both are very close) and there was talks of going Manchester but it didn't really go any further, little did Naquelle know we had created a separate group chat and decided we would go down for the weekend and surprise her. The main group chat things would be mentioned again about doing something even going London but none of us really responded to it, it was all an act, an act we all played our parts very well, Natalie's sarcasm just comes naturally. We would go back to the "secret" group and discuss things we should say and have reasons if we couldn't do that weekend. We had Naquelle's boyfriend involved (thanks to Sharna and Shonola) and he was in on it all making sure she had time off work, she had no idea. 
It came to the Friday and this was the day. There was a major surprise for Naquelle as her boyfriend had proposed to her in the morning! How cute, romantic, sweet, perfect, I could go on but you get what I'm trying to say. Sharna drove down and we did have some jokes along the way, we got stuck in traffic and someone spotted a good looking guy in the car behind so we made a sign on tissue (don't worry we didn't ruin a lipstick we had a pen lol) I think it said "we think your buff", me and Natalie held it up so he could see it and well we made his day, he was smiling and giggling slightly lol. Sharna is the sign still in your car?! So a few hours later we arrived, it was time to surprise her even more so we ran in her house screaming with balloons and party poppers. The facial expression was priceless she had absolutely no idea we was coming at all. It was safe to say we planned a surprise and no one or nothing gave it away. We done it!
