Beauty Splurge

Yesterday I went to Sephora to touch lots of things and do some testing.  I haven’t spent so much time there in a really long time.  I was able to really delve into Hourglass and learn so new things.  I purchased the Mineral Primer and I have to say that this product might have revolutionized the industry.  It is a primer that makes makeup sweat and waterproof.  Every piece of tissue that touches your face will no longer look like you need a bath.  When the temperature is rising you will no longer have to worry about horrible streaking due to lines of sweat.  Hourglass you have been the magician that I have been longing for with this primer.  Another bonus is that it comes in a travel size so you don’t have to fight to find a container small enough to travel.  This is certainly essential to folks on the move such as myself. 

While I am living you all are learning.  The world of beauty is every changing which is a parallel to life itself.

Even more sponges

Hi all, today I got even more sponges.  It’s amazing how many options are out there.  Today’s delivery included sponges by Fiery Youth and a set from Emax Design.  All sponges are latex free.  I am not even half way through all the sponges that have yet to be reviewed and tested.  At the end of this week I can say that I am happy to endorse the Real Techniques sponge.  If you must know why, here it is:

  • Size covers large areas of the face.
  • Has essentially three usable surfaces.  
  • Fits easily in the hand. 
  • Extremely easy to clean and dries relatively quickly.  
  • Non abrasive
  • Great price point when compared to other popular sponges.

For the sponge novice, this is a great product to get you started in the amazing world of beauty sponges.  

Real Techniques 👍🏾👍🏾✔️✔️✔️

Repurpose and try again

Yesterday I talked about my ungfavorable experience with the Ulta sponge.  Today I decided to give it another try.  I used it for the purpose of applying a correcting product to a few spots on my face.  I am forced to admit that it might just be growing on me.  I used the real techniques sponge again today and I am still very impressed.  While my flawless face was looking amazing today it did not feel amazing.  I was able to save my skin and my sinuses thanks to Sephora’s First Aid Beauty Sampler (rewards gift) which has a cleanser, moisturizer and a couple other things.  This is great to keep at your desk for an emergency cleaning.  

Cosmetics, My Life

There is something about being able to change the way I look with a little powder and some color.  In my daily life I embrace and embody the the definition of a true consumer.  Beauty and Fashion are the things that I enjoy the most.  I get chills just reading about new products.  If there is one thing that I know for sure its a beauty product that I try and love I am able to generate buzz and have a cult following.

As you will soon see I Love, Love, LOVE the would of beauty.

Thank you for taking time to see what I am purchasing consistently, testing and returning.  If there is something that you want me to try feel free to comment and I would love to try it out and review.
