I'm having a rather mellow day/ weekend, as I've just returned from a little girls trip to Savanah, GA and have subsequently caught a cold. Such is life! Nonetheless, I had a wonderful time.
Back in Jupiter, however, I've gone quite stir-crazy. UMiami has been dismissed for roughly 3 weeks as a result of Irma damage...insanity! Who knew I would be excited to return to school?
Since I've had a lot of time on my hands, I've collected some makeup/skincare goodies and have been putting them to the test. Apologies for such terrible photo quality, my camera is back in Miami.
1. DIORSKIN AIRFLASH SPRAY FOUNDATION
I'm not a huge fan of foundation or having makeup looks, so finding a light foundation that matches my skin tone has been quite the feat. I think I (finally) have a winner! This foundation is on the pricey side, and the application process seems bizarre, but I love it. I spray it directly onto a dense buffing brush then apply that way. It's super light and wears well. I wear shade "medium beige." Shop here.
2. SEPHORA PRO BUFFING BRUSH #70
I picked this brush up when I bought the Diorskin. It was honestly a blind purchase ( did not do my research), but I've really liked it! Shop here.
3. DIOR FIX IT 2-IN-1 PRIME & COLOR CORRECT
Since I'm generally terrible at makeup, color correcting seems like a daunting task. I've tried the Makeup Forever green color correcting primer but was not a fan. This color correcting stick makes for an easy application and allows me to focus on areas I usually get red. The "corrector" comes in several shades; I use the green. Shop here.
4. BENEFIT THEY’RE REAL! TINTED LASH PRIMER
I hate feeling like I can't touch my eyes/ crunchy eyelashes. Ew. This is a tinted primer so I can rub my eyes all I want and still have a little added volume! Shop here.
5.HONEY DROP LIGHTWEIGHT MOISTURIZER WITH ECHINACEA GREENENVY™
I've been trying to slowly convert to all natural/organic skincare... it's hard. This little beauty caught my eye at Sephora and it's organic! I've been using it twice a day and been loving the way it leaves my skin feeling! Shop here.
6.ORIGINS SUPER SPOT REMOVER™ BLEMISH TREATMENT GEL
I've always used the cult favorite, Mario Badescu drying lotion, to spot treat pimples. Recently, during my effort to use organic products, I picked up this little guy. My sister and I call it the miracle worker. It is seriously potent and works like a charm. Shop here.
7. DIOR ADDICT LIP MAXIMIZER PLUMPING GLOSS
I was given a sample of this the last time I purchased something at the Dior counter. I used it a couple of times and decided to purchase it. I like the product as a "clear" gloss when I don't feel like wearing anything else. As far is "lip maximizing," I'm not so sure. I have noticed the signature tingling sensation and a bit of a plumper look, but who knows! Shop here.
8. YSL TATOUAGE COUTURE LIQUID MATTE LIP STAIN
This is my favorite lip product of all time. This dusty rose shade disappeared for a little while, and I was so upset, but I found it in a new line. I was/ am so thrilled. The shade I'm obsessed with is COLOR:7 Nu Interdit - medium nude. Shop here.
9. LANCÔME LABSOLU ROUGE HYDRATING SHAPING LIP COLOR
I was in serious need of lip hydration and happened upon this rich feeling "balm." I have it in shade 00, as I use it as a chapstick. Love it. Shop here.
