It is a cold, snowy day here in New England and I haven’t done much. I am actually typing this from the floor which you will come to see in the pictures that follow.I have decided to share with you my thoughts on the products I have recently purchased, I am awfully picky with products so the ones that I may not like, you might! (I’m kind of a handful.) Different products are always different on different skin types and tones so don’t be afraid to experiment! Anyway- here goes.
(Told you I’m on the floor.)
First- Sephora CC Cream in the shade medium tan. I bought this product in a darker shade as I have been going tanning and I wanted it to match my body. I don’t love this CC cream. When I purchased it I was expecting a light product that would provide just a little balance and color correcting in my skin. I’m not one that likes the feeling of having product on my face. I am getting used to it as I have been wearing it almost every day but I don’t think I will purchase it again. As a positive it isn’t drying out my skin nor making it oily, so while I like it, I don’t love it.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer– No thank you. For a tinted moisturizer this is extremely heavy, I would use it as a full coverage foundation. It felt as though I was painting on my face with a heavy acrylic based paint. It also completely covered my freckles which I didn’t like at all.
Maybelline Dream Lumi Highlighting Concealer- I have used this twice and I am thinking it will be given to someone or end up in the trash shortly. I don’t find it does much concealing and it is extremely hard to work with. Almost like clay. Nevermind how hard it is blend into the face. I would definitely pass on this product.
MAC Prep and Prime Translucent Finishing powder- I use this on my T-zone to keep from getting shiny throughout the day and right under my eyes to keep eye-liner from running. Love it. This will definitely be a staple in my collection for years.
Rimmel London Glam Eyes Day 2 Night Mascara– I bought this at CVS about a month ago strictly because it was on sale for one dollar. Who can beat it? I didn’t expect to like it, maybe throw it in my purse for touch ups here and there. I LOVE it. The tube comes with a “length” wand as well as a separate “volume” wand. This product works wonders for my lashes.
MAC Rebel Lipstick- Obsessed. Can’t get enough. Creamy and goes on wonderfully. Stays for hours. Buy it.
That is proof that I need to go be productive so that is what I am going to do. I have zero christmas shopping done and that is a serious problem. Off to the mall I go. Happy makeup shopping.
