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:

Review: Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield

005

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!

Tips & Tricks: The Color Theory and Making it Work for your Eyes

002

15-year-old Me stands in front of a mirror inspecting the day’s outfit. It is my favorite, a red cotton collared shirt with sleeves that go past the wrist and a pair of true blue jeans. Which eye shadow should I match with this look? I wonder. Blue or red? Well, red’s too loud for school, so I’ll just go with blue.

Review: MAC Prep + Prime Fix +

001

This product is a category 3. For a full description of beauty product categories, please visit the My Beauty Philosophy page.

I purchased MAC’s Prep + Prime Fix + after seeing it used repeatedly in YouTube tutorials. I was curious about its use of adding vibrance to eye shadows but mostly I just wanted to figure out what its purpose was. Is it a makeup setting spray? Is it a primer? Is it for eye shadows? The answer is yes to all three. You would think that’s where it went wrong as usually when a product tries to be too versatile, it fails at everything it promises on. That was until I looked at the ingredients…

Tips & Tricks: To tone or Not to Tone?

The debate about toners has beauty gurus taking two opposite ends of the spectrum. Some feel this is a necessary step, others don’t see any purpose of it. If you’re thinking about whether you need to start using a toner, first consider your cleansing ritual.

Tips & Tricks: Eye shadow primers for oily skin

If you’ve got oily skin, odds are you’ve also got oily eye lids. I definitely do. I first noticed this when good quality eye shadows just weren’t blending on my lids. I applied my trusty primer potion and though it did help the shadow stay on my lids perfectly, blending the shades together was very difficult. It clumped where my brush hit it first and wouldn’t move anywhere else. Then I decided to try an experiment and was surprised to find out that it worked perfectly!
