    Default Thin lizzy

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone has tried or uses thin lizzy. Especially people with freckles? I am not much of a make up wearer, I've never found a foundation that I am comfortable wearing. I was wondering if this one is any good. What do people think of it? I'm starting to get dark circles under my eyes and don't get much sleep with 3 under 3, I'm just feeling a bit meh and have been thinking of trying it but I just don't want to spend the money if it's not as good as it sounds.

    I'm interested to hear about this too. I also have the same prob as you OP...freckles and dark under eyes (mine are more dark and hollow not baggy). I rarely wore makeup but I will put on concealer, foundation, mascara and powder just to freshen my face up for work and try to look 'normal' rather than look old and worn out lol

    Oh yeah I'm not baggy either just dark. When I have a regrowth I look like horrible. I might just have to try it I guess.

    To get the flawless look on TV you have to buy the concealer as well. But I found it good in summer to put on instead of heaps of make up. It does give light coverage but not a lot.

    I tried it because im a make up addict and try anything clever marketing throws my way!
    I really didn't like it especially for staying power. For info my skin is fair and combination. Drier in winter.
    I also didn't like their concealer. I found it cakey.
    As an alternative powder foundation, Clinique almost make up powder is great- good staying power, good colour match for me and is buildable so if you only want light, that's all you have to have.
    Revlon also has a powder foundation that's good. Came out not too long ago and has a really nice soft brush to go with it.
    For under eyes, any light reflecting concealer works for me, Clinique airbrush, Dior touché éclat or the maybelline fit me concealers are good too!

    Minds is a colour choice of thin lizzy but if you email them they will send you a pallet sample to test what is right for you

    If you want 'feels like I'm wearing no foundation at all' make up then I can't go past Chanel vitalumiere aqua. It's pricey but really light weight and oil free.
    Chemist wise - bourjois healthy mix serum is light weight foundation that's really lovely too and way way cheaper than any designer brand!

    I've tried the 6 in 1 powder or whatever it's called. I'm way to pale for it though so it only looks orange. I have freckles as well.
    Have tried nude by nature as well. Probably a better colour match but it really doesn't take much for me to sweat it off throughout the day.

    My go to is Laura Mercier mineral pressed powder. A little pricey and only available at certain David Jones counters or online, but is lightweight, great colour options, covers dark circles, rosacea, freckles, pimples etc and lasts all day - I'm talking up to 24 hours! Also gentle on my skin - I normally have oily cheeks and nose and dry forehead and chin. You wouldn't even know with this on!! I freakin love the stuff!
