Sylvia G.'s Beauty Product Reviews
Not just for moms!
I just bought my mom 2 new sets of Chanel's Rouge line lipsticks - one for day and one for event/evening. She needs a more hydrating lipstick IMO so we're going to give this line a try. I've found that Chanel's lipstick to be very moisturizing and I actually prefer them for the upcoming windy (read: drying) weather to add some extra moisturizing while still having a nice rich pigment.
Gotta Love it...
Say it isn't so...I have become enchanted by this enchanting bottle of Urban Decay's Primer Potion. At first, I was kind of hesitant to even buy it, it just seemed to be too much of a campy product, and I felt like I was way too old for the packaging. You've got to admit that it looks like something Disney would sell at a Hannah Montana concert attached to lanyard.
Anyway, my mom had some in her makeup cabinet, so I tried it...a few times. As far as makeup primer goes - I'm not usually too picky. I can do with whatever moisturizing lotion that I've got, plus some eye cream. And I have the MAC primer (which I don't really care for too much because it is a pain in the butt to apply)...and I have the Loreal DeCrease (which was under 10 bucks at CVS plus I used the rewards card).
The end result, you ask? I ended up buying another bottle, just for me. I'm not proud about it, and I shove it in my makeup drawer, because even when I am applying it, the whole Princess Barbie meets Tinkerbell packaging just kind of makes me feel like a loser. Like maybe I'm wearing a miniskirt or something that What Not To Wear is going to tsk tsk me on some secret footage later on in my life. But it works, and it works well.
Dab some on with the "magic wand" right onto your eyelid, and let it dry. When you apply your shadow, you will find that it goes on smoother, stays on longer, and stays more true to the pigment shade than if you don't use it. Blending is also much more effective when you have the Urban Decay Primer Potion on...and when you walk out the door, you will look fabulous!
Fortunately, I ordered mine from Beauty.com so that I didn't have to feel like a complete teeny-bopper-wanna-be at Sephora.
