Today's Lipstick of the Day:
Illamasqua Lipstick in Box!
OMG. Talk about vampy ant HOT! I just love this Lipstick. I coveted it for the longest time before biting the bullet and purchasing this lovely piece of beauty equipment...but once I did, I never looked back! When I tested it out, I tried it on at Sephora and walked around a bit...ate a meal to see the staying power (amazing)...then walked into a MAC store with my sister. The sales associate said "Oh my God...I LOVE THAT LIPSTICK YOU'RE WEARING! Is it one of ours?" and when my response was "No..." the guy was stunned, embarrassed, and floored. Meaning I HAD to get it!
I found the most AMAZING stuff at the drugstore (CVS) the other day...
L'oreal MIRACLE BLUR INSTANT SKIN SMOOTHER!!!
OMG. I think this stuff was sent from the heavens above to fix my (and everyone elses) face! I saw a commercial for this on the damn TV (that's how all this damn shit starts, ugh!) and knew I had to try this. Listen...I am creeping up on the big 3-0, and there are wrinkles on my face that I've never noticed before and it's driving me crazy...I will try anything to hide them. When I saw this, I had hope...but I was like "what the hell IS IT?!" Let's let L'oreal tell us...
L'Oreal describes this product as:
Instantly Erases the Look of Wrinkles, Lines & Pores
- With Opti-Blur Technology
- Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen
Why is it Different?
Revitalift is the first finishing cream that delivers instant results. Opti-Blur Technology diffuses light on skin for a soft-focus effect that instantly smoothes lines and wrinkles, hides pores and minimizes little flaws and imperfections. In 4 weeks, wrinkles, lines and pores appear minimized. Skin texture appears smoother.
Ugh...a primer?! Actually, most women wear this as a FOUNDATION, with no other makeup!!!
I have 839475 primers already! BUT, alas, I figured, what's one more. Well thank GOD I took the plunge, because this stuff is straight up AMAZING. I put this on after I washed my face, and after moisturizer, as they indicated...let it set for 5 minutes. When I looked at myself in the mirror after, I took a double-take. The fine lines around my eyes and the enlarged pores on my cheeks were barely visible! I could hardly believe it. And furthermore, when I put my foundation and powder over this, it was flawless. I can't lie, I did some kind of a cheer right in front of the mirror...fantastic. As far as texture, it has a thick, silicone texture, but it definitely blends down great, and is soaked up by the skin, no problem. Non-greasy. Also has a slight sunscreen scent, but that is to be expected, it is SPF 30. You should be wearing sunscreen anyway, just saying...
Here are some swatches....
|This swatch is a bit of blended product, so you can see the consistency of it|
|Fully blended...as you can see, it totally changes the tone and texture of the skin it touches. Literally amazing!|
|"Sher, you look exceptionally perfect and beautiful today...you take my breath away...just saying...Happy Valentine's Day, babe!"|
Til next time...thanks for reading, and stay foxxxy!
