BB Cream -Lumene - Bright Now Vitamin C BB Cream SPF20

on 8/23/2017 10:12:00 PM

I am on a quest for the perfect BB cream. This is the closest I have come to it, but I still have to test many more.
It is of a thick consistency which I really like and the medium color suits my olive skin. It is easy to blend, no frangrance and it is not terribly expensive. No complaints.


Lash Treatments -Etude House - My Lash Serum

I can't believe it, but this stuff actually works. My lashes aren't thicker, but they're definitely longer. Noticed a difference after about 2 weeks of twice-daily use. Doesn't irritate my eyes. Lower lashes responded particularly well.

Toners -Caudalie - Beauty Elixir

This is a spray mist. It must have a ton of eucalyptus oil in it or something like that. It cools your face, which in summer in Phoenix is very nice however ....
Make sure to close your eyes very tight. One time I must've not done this right and it got into my eyes. Very burning and your eyes will be blood shot.
I have not decided whether I will buy again or not ...


Lotions/ Creams -Weleda - Wild Rose Body Lotion

foto

I got this many years ago to try as I love the smell, but the lotion was extremely difficult to get out of the glass bottle and I ended up tossing it. This has since been repackaged in a bottle with a pump, making it nicer to use. However, the pump stopped working before I finished it so once again some product got tossed.
The lotion itself is lightweight, soaks in quickly, and leaves my skin soft and hydrated. But the packaging problems and price make this something I won't be trying a third time.

Primer/ Corrector -Tarte - Colored Clay CC Primer

This is a cool but confusing product. It is a stick like foundation. It leaves a velvety powdery feel on your face which is pleasant. However you have to practice putting it on and make sure you blend it well. I use it in place of foundation , since it is really hot here, this product feels nice on the face
It has no sunscreen in it so you need to put that on.
Really good for travel also, being it is solid.


Makeup Brushes -Bare Escentuals - Bare Minerals Be Luxe Performance Brush

on 8/23/2017 10:01:00 PM

This brush has a really unique shape. It's a very dense brush, tapered toward the end. The bristles aren't as soft as I'd like, but usable. I have used this with BB cream and foundation. It blends beautifully. I like it with concealer too. Really I've loving this brush except that it's not as soft as I like.


Treatments (Face) -Weleda - Baby Calendula Diaper Care

foto

I don't have children but I keep this around because it works like a charm on any skin irritations I get due to heat rash and chafing. I prefer this over other diaper rash creams because it absorbs into my skin, unlike others that end up just sitting on the surface and end up feeling slimey. One major brand used to stain my clothes so I decided to try a "natural" one and I'm glad I did. It's definitely more expensive but I don't use it that often and I will gladly pay more for something that I enjoy using. I don't like fragrances (I don't understand why they put fragrance in diaper rash creams to begin with) but the calendula is pleasant, non-irritating and doesn't scream "baby".
P.S. this works good as a spot treatment for pimples too!


Highlighters -Anastasia Of Beverly Hills - Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit

I don't know much of YT (& Nicole) i just picked it up becoz abh makes my fave glow-across-tha-galaxy highlighters. For every day I use my charlotte Tilbury film star bronze n glow but when I want to step it up I use my abh ultimate glow kit and when I wanna get fancy "this" .....OR that glow/sundipped. I have a fake Moonchild I hate but I'm glad I got it so I didn't make an expensive mistake I'm not into blue/purple hi liter I'm not 25 any more. This needs to be kept up top temples only if you have oily skin don't drag it too far down or it eil accentuate ur pores on Naso folds regions. And you don't want to coat your face in chunky glitter which is why I confine it to tops of my cheekbones. Just how I use mine imho u may use urs different =]


BB Cream -Erborian - 3-1 BB Cream au Ginseng "baby skin effect"

I have this in the lightest shade, claire. This BB cream comes out greyish but warms up on my skin. It matches my skin fair neutral pretty darn perfectly. It's thick and smooth and blends in easily. I usually use my fingers to apply it. It's a solid medium coverage, very natural finish. It hasn't been making me oily. This summer my bare minerals complexion perfecter has been getting very shiny and not holding up, but this has. I do set with a powder. It hasn't broken me out. And I've been wearing this on long work days and it has lasted. I'm really really loving this BB cream. I was sad when IT cosmetics cc cream didn't work out for me (broke me out), but I'm very happy with this one.


Liquid -Bare Escentuals - bareMinerals BarePro Liquid Foundation

I am really enjoying this foundation. I have finicky skin so I struggle finding a foundation that works for me. I would call this medium to full coverage. I can see my freckles through it with one thin layer. I find this to look quite natural. The finish is quite matte on me but not dry. It dries down really fast but blends quickly. I have been working this in on one side of my face at a time because of how quick it dries. I have been using the new bare minerals Be Luxe performance brush to apply this. I have not tried it with my beauty blender. This foundation lasts all day on me and doesn't get oily, even on my 14 hour work days. I love the pump, and it has a lid. The bottle is quite heavy. It hasn't broken me out. I have the shade 05, sateen. It might be oxidizing a little on me, but I'm playing with it a little more. I think overall the shade works on me. I have fair skin and am very neutral toned. For reference, other foundations I like are Estee Lauder Double wear (but I can't find a good shade match) and Revlon colorstay (oily) in buff.
