Primers are definitely a major key for applying makeup but I have YET to find one that doesn't contribute to my oily skin. The majority of primers also serve as a moisturizer which is a plus but it just seems to materialize as more unneeded oil on my face. My skin gets sooo oily throughout the day. Issa midday struggle looking in the mirror at my oily face. Taking 30 minutes to beat my face in the morning, only to discover that my face is glistening by noon is a real disappointment.
The line currently has 9 lipstick shades in the collection. The lipstick is a more of a cream with a satin finish. It’s a traditional lipstick with colors that look great against our skin. With that said, you may have to re-apply as the day goes on but I have found that I only had to reapply once or twice throughout the day. Although, they are not the liquid lipsticks or have the all-day staying power as many of the other matte lipsticks on the market, the Mented Cosmetics lipsticks do have staying power to last through coffee/tea and a meal or two.
About 2 days later, started to notice that my face was unusually itchy and I had started to develop very fine bumps on my face. The next day, it was apparent that I had a full on allergic reaction and it was all over my face!
The purpose of this product is to remove the make-up so you would apply it to your face while you’re still wearing your make-up. As you are rubbing the oil in a circular motion all over your face, you slowly begin to add water which emulsifies the product into a milky cleanser, breaking down the makeup and removing impurities.
Ever find yourself lost at the makeup counter?...I can't be the only one that's brave enough to admit it! And I can't even tell you how many times I've watched makeup tutorials on YouTube and got lost mid-way through the video because all these terms were coming at me left and right.
Since being introduced to lipsticks, I can't live without them. It completes my look and gives me that extra "umph" that I need to feel sexy.
My skin felt soft, my pores looked clear and I was left with a natural glow even before I moisturized with my Biossance 100% Squalene oil ($58, Sephora.com). I agree with the many four and five-star reviews on Sephora.com. The Boscia Charcoal Pore Pudding is worth the $38 investment.
I tried everything I could think of to get rid of the ash and tightness on my face... night time serums and moisturizers, day time moisturizers, a multitude of oils and I even tried Egyptian Magic (We can talk about that later). Then one night, while browsing through my favorite app…Sephora…I came across what has now become my most favorite beauty product…Biossance 100% Squalane Oil ($58, Sephora.com).
Hey Fabs! It’s your girl, Mona Nisa, and I’m here with another review. In my July Sephora Play! Box ($10/mo, Sephora.com) I received a sample of IT Cosmetics Superhero™ Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara ($24, Sephora.com).
Contrary to what a lot of people with darker skin tones believe, people of all races can get skin cancer. Sure, our darker skin produces more of the pigment called melanin that does help protect our skin — but only to a certain extent.
