This week’s best buy

December 1, 2010 § Leave a comment

I was on the lookout for a make up primer. I’ve tested MAC primers among others but wasn’t too sold on any.  I’d heard about Make up Forever before but never tried any of their products.  My cousin, who uses their products, came to visit for Thanksgiving and I got a chance to see how their make up works.  Her face looked flawless.

So I headed over to Sephora to check it out and was pleasantly surprised. I fell in love with their HD Microperfecting Primer. It glides on easily and seems to absorb into the skin when dry. It also helps the foundation and powder to adhere to the skin. I personally haven’t tried it yet with foundation, only under my MAC Powder but the result was flawless looking skin.  Even though I only use foundation on special occasions, I now feel like I can skip this step altogether and just go for the primer and powder.

Here is what Make Up Forever claims

What it is:

A lightweight, oil-free complexion corrector that enhances the skin’s texture and primes the skin for makeup application.

What it does:

HD Microperfecting Primer deeply nourishes, moisturizes, and softens the skin, creating a glowing effect. Creates a protective layer on the skin allowing foundation to glide on easily and last longer.

It comes in six colors ( neutral, green, mauve, caramel, blue, yellow, pink) and is exclusive to Sephora.

Size: 1.o1 oz

Price : $32

And here is a picture of me testing out my new found love.


Naturally perfect facial moisturizer

October 29, 2010 § Leave a comment

Having very sensitive skin has led me on  a quest to find the perfect, mild facial moisturizer. After trying countless expensive and inexpensive potions alike, I grew very frustrated with the results.  My skin would get too dry or too oily and some even caused breakouts.

One day, my mom was sitting by the window, and gazing at her in that natural light, it struck me just how beautifully flawless her skin is at 60 years old. I asked her what she uses on her face and she said % PURE  ALOE VERA.

Well since then, I adopted the use of aloe vera gel on my face and I have seen a tremendous difference. No more pricey potions in pricey packaging. I’m sticking with Mother Nature’s gift.

I add a few drops of Lavender essential oil to the aloe and apply it my skin twice a day.  I love the even tone and dewy glow  it provides.
