I love Urban Decay but this tinted moisturizer is miss for me!
I been fan of Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer for long time and I found out Urban Decay came out with their Tinted Moisturizer. So I tried it out! both Laura Mercier and UD tinted moisturizer has SPF20. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer is $42 and UD tinted moisturizer $30. Laura Mercier finish dewy look and UD finish matte look. Laura Mercier glide on so easy and smooth on skin but UD is so hard to blend on skin, it dries out so quickly leave stricky mark on skin. UD has more coverage than Laura Merier but it's just not blend well. If you looking for matte finish look and more coverage for Tinted Moisturizer it might for you, but i prefer dewy finish and easy to work on skin! so I will go back to my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer.
No Foundation Foundation is not Foundation
First of all Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation is not foundation. It's sheer than tinted moisturizer. basically no coverage, so you need to have the perfect skin to get benefit of using this foundation(I have acne scars and freckles so I need some coverage to correct my skin tone) . This foundation comes one shade, it suppose to blend like your skin color. Because this foundation have no coverage i added some other foundation, the color totally changed. Either really light or really dark depends on color of foundation i add on it brings on the more of color. All the benefits of this foundation sounds really good but its not works for me and i would not recommend this small jar of $50 no foundation foundation to people my age.
great colors with awesome price!
You can't really bit the price of $2.80, these days even in drug store brands nail polishes are over $5.00. I been use Forever 21 polishes over years, quality of polish are great, very pigmented and brush is okay too. As long as you use good base coat and top coat, nail polishes don't make huge difference. Plus they carry awesome colors!
must have for nail product!
I was nail technician for long time, I love using Duri Rejuvacote as base coat for myself and for clients. It really works like magic(result shows really quickly i couldn't believe it)! This Rejuvacote will make nail stronger, help grow faster and it has tinted pink color so you can use it by itself for clean and heathy look nails.
I highly recommend it with out thinking twice!
Foundation Primer with Anti-Aging Serum, what can you ask more!?!
I'm so happy I found Cover FX Skinprep FX Nourishing Foundation Primer & Anti-Aging Serum! I recently broke out on my face so i went to the dermatologist. The prescription medication dries out my skin. But this foundation primer is so nourishing and moisturizing, it covers all the dry patches and gives me dewy skin. I also use this primer as serum at night, and in the morning, I notice improvements in my skin. One thing I have to say, if you have oily skin it might not for you or use less amount, otherwise you might looks like one grease ball! In that case you just need a sheet of Tatcha blotting paper, it works like magic! Overall, this primer saved my dry and patchy skin!
I tried using NYX Cosmetics HD Studio Photogenic Grinding Powder and love it. I'm very picky about powder and if I use low quality powder, it creases on my pore, fine wrinkles and leaves my face looking old. I used to use Shu Uemura loose powder before, I loved it but it's bit pricier and hard to get it. I have to say NYX Grinding Powder is super great quality, easy to work with and grinder control the amount of loose powder, so it doesn't fall all over the place. It's very well made. If you're looking for perfect setting powder with out a cakey look I highly recommend this powder!!
looks natural all the way!
I have Urban Decay Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tint in Score.it's natural coral shimmer color for everyday make up. It's glide on super easy, sheer yet very pigment and it really stays on cheek all day! If I want to jazz up for night time, I add Nars Orgasm on top of Score to pop the nice coral shimmery blush( both blushes are same coral shimmer family, touch of powder blush on top of cream blush makes blush color more vibrant) I use to used Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush before, it works great for drug store brand but UD cheek tint is last longer. So I'm replacing Dream Mousse blush to UD Afterglow
Finally found my perfect skin tone concealer!
My lovely husband got this Shu Uemura Cover Crayon from Japan. It has two tone concealer each side. i have bad experience with stick concealer before, but this Shu Uemura stick concealer changed my whole conception of stick concealer! it's glade on skin so soft, match with my skin tone perfectly! only down part of this concealer is not lasting all day. But it's so easy to touch up, i don't mind at all!
It's great but i won't re-purchase it!
Kiehl's 'Abyssine' Eye Cream is thick and takes a long time to absorb to skin. I'm not big fan of Kiehl's eye creams, I tried Abyssine eye cream and Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado. Both eye creams are very thick and it doesn't leave feeling moisture after applying around eyes. I won't buy it again.
i found my perfect camouflage!
First of all, I don't have deep purplish dark circle, So I don't need haevy duty coverage. I used to use cream concealers, like Amazing concealer. I heard so much good things about this concealer, but personally don't like it at all! It's cakey and define the fine wrinkle around eye area. I wasn't sure about using powder concealer, but very first time I use Benefit Powderflage I was sold! it's very light weight, enough coverage and easy to blend with out crease up the fine wrinkles! It comes with little fan brush, I usually use with foundation sponge both works fine. I been using this Powderflage over weeks, loving it!
I finally found my the perfect camouflage for my not so perfect under circle!
