Makeup and Beauty Product Reviews and Swatches

I have always loved the idea behind powder mineral foundations – their ease in application, lightweight formula and natural ingredients, seriously how can you not? But for years, I have had no luck finding the right product. Most brands either left my dehydrated combination skin dry and irritated or turned my face into a glittery disco ball. And just when I was about to give up on the search, I was introduced to London-based Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation and now I am *totally* hooked!

Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation

So long MAC Fix+ ! You have been officially replaced by my latest HG, Skindinavia Original Makeup Finishing Spray.

Utilizing a time-release cryogenic technology, the Makeup Finishing Spray helps to extend makeup wear and color hold for up to 16 hours. Simply put, it works by lowering makeup’s temperature to prevent makeup from melting or sliding. The spray is also oil-free, paraben-free, color-less and comes with a nice, breathable scent.

Like most makeup-setting sprays, this does an excellent job toning down cakey foundation, freshening makeup and creating a dewy look. But what really sets it aside is its superb ability to lock in foundation, concealer, blush and even eyeshadow. Whenever I use the Makeup Finishing Spray, my makeup stays on perfect for at least a good old 12 hours with zero blotting or touching up.

Created by Hollywood celebrity makeup artist Bethany Karlyn, PRTTY PEAUSHUN Skin Tight Body Lotion is the must-have product celebrities like Rihanna, Leona Lewis and Cate Blanchett rely on to get skin that glows.

PRTTY PEAUSHUN (pronounced Pretty Potion) contains a 92% base of natural raw ingredients like arnica, green tea extract, avocado oil and grapefruit wax along with light reflecting pigments to even out skin tone, enhance muscle tone and diminish the appearance of cellulite, bruising and minor imperfections. The product can also be used under foundation on the face to create a subtle glow.
