Once I lost count of the number of lipsticks I own (I stopped somewhere around 100), I figured it’s time to go on a no-buy. I was doing quite well and was about to give myself a pat on the back until I got to play with the new MAC Pro LongWear Lipcremes ($16) – I couldn’t help but caved!
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!
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.
