Makeup artist, content creator and Cork native Jade Foley shares videos to her 68,000 followers on TikTok.

Satin Silk Foundation & Concealer by @sculptedbyaimee review / first impression – What do ye think of it ? Unfortunately i was given a shade too dark / warm in foundation and a shade too light in concealer but surprisingly using them together i was able to get away with it. They are VERY full coverage so a tiny bit goes a long way i could see them being a product you get ages out of. They do leave a nice glow but its not as glowy as Second Skin so i think this would be great for people with Oily Skin as well as Dry skin. I am not someone who likes full coverage foundations because normally theyre so heavy but this foundation did feel quite light on the skin so it wasnt too intense. I really liked how my other products sat on top of the two products however with the concealer i did notice some odd creasing once i set it which wouldnt normally happen for me. But overall, I do like both products however i think my all time favourite would have to be Second Skin ! ❤️ Thank you to Sculpted by Aimee for #gifting these products to me i am very grateful to have had the chance to try these products & congratulations on the new launch 🙂 #makeup #makeupreview #satinsilk #satinsilkfoundation #satinsilkconcealer #sculptedbyaimee #sculptedbyaimeeconnolly #review #firstimpression #firstimpressionsmakeup #beauty #makeupartist #newfoundation #newconcealer #newproductalert #newproduct #honestreview
