I recently received a sample of the Seventh Heaven Enriched Moisturizing Facebase (I did not get this in my GlossyBox). MeMeMe Cosmetics are a relatively new brand within the cosmetic and blogging world and so I was delighted when I was kindly posted a sample to test and review for you all.
MeMeMe is a brand whose inspiration began with the ancient Greeks, with their enormous influence on civilisation, art and architecture echoes through the modern world; The Renaissance was also a key point for the brand as it was a period in history where women were adored and the cherub established herself as the iconic embodiment of love. Lastly, the bohemian spirit brought MeMeMe Cosmetics together with their embodiment of our unique style, adventure and free minded people.
"We pride ourselves on offering affordable luxury within an eclectic range of handbag essentials, on trend editions, classic lines and gift collections as individual and versatile as our customers and genuinely believe in going that extra mile in everything we do."
MeMeMe Seventh Heaven Facebase
"Moisturising facebase enriched with Shea Butter, Vitamin A and Beta-Carotene prep & prime the skin."
The sample pot contains 10ml - a very generous size for a freebie which reinforces their quote of "going that extra mile". The packaging feels deluxe and expensive with the sleek frosted glass container and lavish font. With info placed on the back of the packaging and a £5 off voucher for the purchase of Seventh Heaven it truly does feel like they have gone all out to please. The facebase is scented with a zest of lemon, orange, lime and mandarin making your face smell better than ever before. It is pleasant and long lasting smell which some people may find over-powering and sickly but personally I like it. The consistency is creamy and light and goes a long way in order to achieve full coverage; however I do find that once you have started smoothing it over your skin you need to work fast as it can get a sticky feel to it. Results are immediate and instantly start to eradicate any strong facial lines, scars and pores. After waiting for 3-5 mins, I then apply my make-up as usual and set with a translucent powder. I naturally have an oily complexion and do need to top-up my powder if not wearing a primer/facebase, but Seventh Heaven doesn't work so well and unfortunately leaves my face feeling extremely oily than usual. I have found that putting powder on after the appliance and before make-up helps a great deal. The price for me seems quite steep however if it works for you better than any other primers then it can be seen as reasonable and is a small price to pay for a little piece of heaven that you can treat your face to every day.
