REVIEW: Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation

REVIEW: Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation

Bobbi Brown is the freakin’ queen. Her Makeup Manual is awesome, her beauty philosophy is on point, and her products are raved over by makeup mavens the world over. Which is why on a whim, I decided to #TreatYoSelf and bought her Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation.

What I love about Bobbi is that she makes cosmetics for a wide range of skin tones. I got Warm Beige, which is an exact shade match for me.

Packaging

The bottle is absolutely classy. Frosted glass all up in this shit <3

REVIEW: IN2IT Oil Control & Oil-Free face powder

REVIEW: IN2IT Oil Control & Oil-Free face powder

The only pressed powder I have ever used is Maybelline Clear Smooth. It’s affordable, but it’s not great at oil control, and that’s what I’m really looking for.
First off, can I say how hard it is to find a pressed powder that’s not powder foundation? Nearly all of my Google searches led me to powder foundation reviews. Ugh. Powder foundie on top of a liquid foundie = cakey, masklike mess. No, thanks!
Anyway, let’s take a look at this baby:

REVIEW: Glam Works Lip and Cheek Tint

I got this as part of a gift bag from my tita. At first, I didn’t expect much seeing as it’s not a well-known brand, but now I am so glad my tita gave it to me. Read on to find out why.

It comes in a plastic jar with a screw-on lid. Size is suitable for travel, as it’s small and light.

REVIEW: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel

REVIEW: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel

My skin is frickin’ weird. It’s very oily to the point that the grease actually transfers to my hands, but in areas around my nose, it’s dry and crusty. Damn it, skin, make up your mind!

I keep reading that the reason skin gets oily is because it’s overcompensating for moisture that apparently I’m not providing. And all this time I avoided moisturizers because I thought they’d make me oil up even worse. I tried The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Moisturizer with SPF 15 but after it proved to be very ineffective in healing my skin cracks, I searched for a lightweight but effective moisturizer.

The price tag admittedly put me off, but in my desperation to de-grease, I took the jump.

REVIEW: Cinema Secrets Ultralucent Setting Powder

REVIEW: Cinema Secrets Ultralucent Setting Powder

I keep reading that setting powder is very important for long-lasting make-up!! but I never really thought it would make much of a difference on my oily skin. Good thing I impulse-shopped one day and bought this awesome, awesome product!
I bought this on a whim mostly because at the Fisher Mall department store, Cinema Secrets had a secret freebie for purchases of a certain amount. I was excited because I thought, “OMG the freebie’s also gonna be a cosmetics products!”, but it turned out to be dental stuff like mouthwash. Meh. However, I am still so very glad that I bought this.

Cinema Secrets Ultralucent Setting Powder in Beige

The packaging is disappointing for this price. It’s entirely plastic, including the screw-on lid, and it feels flimsy and breakable. Lightweight, yes, but for more than a thousand bucks, I sure would have appreciated a heftier jar.
