November… where did it go? I blogged my way right through it and here we are already nearly a week into December. With some upcoming travel on the horizon, I have to say, I’m pretty excited that time has been moving fast. So what was I loving in the month of November? It ended up being another minimal month as I was sick a lot of the month and wearing makeup when you’re constantly blowing your nose is kind of counter-productive. Alas, I did end up discovering a few products that became instant-favourites!
Too Faced Primed & Peachy Cooling Matte Perfecting Primer, Fenty Beauty Invisimatte Blotting Powder & Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Spiced Plum
Too Faced | Primed & Peachy Cooling Matte Skin Perfecting Primer
I purchased the Too Faced Primed & Peachy Cooling Matte Skin Perfecting Primer during the Sephora VIB Rouge Sale on a whim and boy am I glad I did! It smells delightful and does an excellent job at keeping my skin matte throughout the day. Though the weather has been cold and dry, my skin gets shiny throughout the day all year round. This has instantly become a staple in my makeup routine and was recently featured in my Oily Skin Essentials post. Continue reading →
Getting through a reasonable amount of time without looking like a shiny mess is one of the struggles of having oily skin. Therefore, I’m always on the prowl for products that claim to mattify. Today I thought I’d share with you a few of the products I am currently using which I’ve found help keep my oil at bay and keep my face looking matte.
L’Oreal | Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation
A long time favourite of mine, this foundation not only matches my colouration well, but also just seems to wear the best on me. I do have a few high end foundations that I use but this is my tried and true staple. What I love about it is that while it is matte, it isn’t so matte that it doesn’t look like natural skin. It is more of a demi-matte. Continue reading →
Hi guys! Between wearing more sunscreen, going on hikes and having minimal skincare at the cottage, my skin has been in definite need for a detoxification. The Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment which we will be taking a look at today is meant to visibly clear the complexion. It can be used for all skin types to address oiliness, acne/blemishes and to clear pores. The activated charcoal with it’s Pore-Matrix technology reveals dots of vacuum extractions lifts away dirt and other debris that may be clogging your pores. The result is said to be a more healthy looking complexion.
The first thing I noticed when applying this mask was the slightly minty scent that it has. Upon application my skin felt a little cold and refreshed. Perfect for a hot summer day! As it dried, while I couldn’t speak without cracking the mask, it also did not feel too tight. As it dried it started to change colour, and the Pore-Matrix technology started to reveal the dots of vacuum extractions. Gross in theory, kind of neat to look at though! There were some larger pieces of charcoal in the mask which is what the large black pieces are in the photos below. Continue reading →
