The Creation Of Beauty Is Art

Before I start today’s post, I wanted to acknowledge the whole GFC debacle just! From what I understand, After July 1st Google Reader will be gone. I’m not completely sure how this will affect people using Blogger and GFC, so if you’ve got a much better grasp on this, please fill me in! At any rate, I have already imported all of the weblogs that I follow on my Google Reader to BlogLovin’ – which you can do here.

If you’re not already following me on BlogLovin’, I’d really appreciate it if you did – just to be safe! I may or may not be a makeup junkie. Either I’m giving makeup for gifts (most likely from my mom!) or I buy it myself. Whatever the case may be – I have a lot. The thing is that I love trying out new products.

There is something fun about searching for the perfect (insert-product-here). It might or may not be an addiction. With that said, I have a few new makeup products to review today! I was given this foundation primer by my mom for Christmas and have been using it on and off since then.

Overall, I have mixed feelings about it. The texture is loved by me of the primer and the sheer glow that it leaves on the skin. The scent is light, fresh, and quite nice, actually. This primer really does leave a nice glowy finish on the skin – living up to the radiance claim in the name. However, for me, I found this didn’t help to even out my skin all that well or make my foundation last longer.

I was a little disappointed, though this is not a bad product. For me, this simply didn’t live up to my expectations. Lately, I’ve been looking for some natural, day lipstick shades every. When I came across this Rimmel one in Rose Blush, I was taken by the shade immediately.

  1. Please keep entries clean and family friendly
  2. Normal to dry cheeks
  3. Hydrate or moisturize, using a cream or lotion with vitamin E
  4. Dr. Ch’ng Chin Chwen
  5. Enlarged lymph nodes
  6. 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar, lemon juice or lavender 100% essential oil {optional)
  7. 9- Cleanse the Skin with Honey
  8. The powerful effect of certain beauties

What appeared to be a soft pink turned out to be a fun, bold, and vibrant pink.

Even though it wasn’t what I expected when I looked at the lipstick, I love this. {It is girly and cute and I can see this lipstick shade being absolutely {perfect for|ideal for} Spring and Summer.|It is cute and girly and I can see this lipstick shade being absolutely {perfect for|ideal for} Spring and Summer.} I love that the lipstick is matte and the packaging {is really|is actually|is absolutely} sleek, like everything from the Kate Moss line. {Oddly enough, |Enough Oddly, } I actually found this lipstick to glide better on the lips than the Moisture Renew lipstick I mentioned above. Overall, {I was really impressed with this lipstick.|I was impressed with this lipstick really.} It’s taking all of my willpower not to pick up a few other shades! What makeup products have you tried lately? Have you tried any of these products?

90, and of course you also have to pay for an office visit to a dermatologist to get a prescription in the first place. I finally took the leap, because I felt like I was wasting my money on over the counter treatments. {I finally figured, |I figured finally, } if I’m going to spend the money, I’m going to spend it on something that’s scientifically proven to work. Tretinoin is available {in different|in various} concentrations and formulas- since I’m sensitive and dry skinned, I’m starting out with cream in the lowest concentration available (.025%) – which is still 20 times more potent than it’s non-prescription counterparts.

Since the cream base contains several emollients, I often don’t need a separate moisturizer, {which makes the price {seem|appear} less of an issue.|which makes the price {seem|appear} less of a pressing issue.} Before I used my Tretinoin, I would have insisted on a souped-up anti-aging cream, but now that I’m confident I’m getting those benefits elsewhere, {I kind of like the simplicity of the CeraVe.|I have like the simplicity of the CeraVe kind.} Having said that, {the line recently released a PM lotion that contains Niacinamide- an anti-aging multi-threat.|the relative line recently released a PM lotion that contains Niacinamide- an anti-aging multi-threat.} Though I’ll likely never run out of my CeraVe Cream (it comes in a honking 16 oz jar!) I’m increasingly tempted to pick up the new night version.

If anyone is wondering, I don’t use a separate eye cream for my eye area. Those of you who have been with me for a while may recall my realization that eye creams are basically the same as most facial moisturizers, except they’re 3 times smaller and twice the price.
