Review: Absolute NY Buttery Matte Lip Cream

069
Buttery Matte Lip Cream, Absolute NY

On my trip to Beauty 35, I picked up a new product from Absolute New York. I consider this company a category 1 because it is less expensive than drugstore brands and to be honest, I haven’t had much luck finding acceptable products from it. Everything seemed really cheap and low quality, but I am very excited about Absolute New York’s Velvet Lippies

Beauty 35

Beauty 35 is a mom and pop beauty supply store in Midtown, just a few blocks from Madison Square Garden. Most of the products are hair care and they also have wigs. There’s a pretty small section in the front with cosmetics, mostly inexpensive brands. I rummaged through and found some items I’ve never seen before just to try them out.

Christmas 2015 Makeup Look

A few weeks ago, I was enticed by the Anastasia Beverly Hills Self-Made Holiday Eye Shadow Palette. Perusing Macy’s for Christmas gifts, I figured it would be OK to treat myself, especially since it was extremely affordable. The Anastasia eye shadows on their own are $12, so 14 of them for under $40 is quite a bargain. The shadows are great quality, they are extremely blendable and you have an amazing choice to create lots of looks. They are mostly shimmers with very few matte colors, so you have have to reach into your personal collection to create a more defined shape.

Review: Beauty Box Subscriptions

017

A few years back I started my expedition into finding the best Beauty Box prescription to fit my needs. There are a lot to choose from and between September 2015 and now, I have so far tried three (maybe I’ll try more). My demands aren’t high but I love the opportunity to try before I buy.

Review: Translucent Powders

016Translucent Powders have been on the rise lately. With the new trend of baking (thank you Drag Queen culture), having a good translucent powder in your collection is a must. It is ideal for setting make-up, especially if you tend to use more cream based products or have oily skin (like me!). Here are a few drugstore translucent powder that I’ve tried over the years:

Tuna Avocado Salad with Miso dressing

009

My favorite dish at Japanese restaurants usually has fresh tuna. There is a great fish market near my house that sells sushi grade tuna, fresh and delicious, perfect to eat raw. While perusing the inner aisles, I found white miso paste in the refrigerator. The salty and earthy flavor is often underestimated and simply not used enough.

Review: Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield

This product is a category 4. For a full description of beauty product categories, please visit the My Beauty Philosophy page.

As everyone knows to be true, there are three rules for maintaining youthful looking skin:

  • drink lots of water,
  • moisturize your face, and
  • always use sunblock.

I keep a bottle of water at my desk, I finally found an amazing moisturizer for my oily skin, but finding the perfect SPF has always eluded me. Most moisturizers that have an SPF make my skin greasy (it’s like I’m wearing sunblock) and this doesn’t help my already oily skin. A friend received a free sample of the Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield and suggested I try it. From the moment I placed it on my face, I was in love!
