I got to meet my new little nephew and it was love at first sight. He’s is so tiny and beautiful, I didn’t want to put him down! It was a great visit and I can’t wait to see him again… but on to some beauty updates (although I could go on forever about him). So walking around in Sin City, staying out late, and lots of activity gave my new products a test. And guess what? Again, I am not so impressed. I tried Cosmedicine’s Medi-Matte Oil Control Lotion after moisturizing. It went on smoothly and absorbed quickly into my skin. However, my foundation did not slide over the product very easily, it made it seem a little sticky. I think it de-shined my face for slightly longer than normal but overall I didn’t think it was much of a success. I also bought the new Perfekt Skin Perfection Gel. The Pros? It is a color corrector, primer and pore minimizer in one and is full of antioxidants and vitamins. The Con? It costs almost $60 for a pretty small bottle. You do use a very small amount so it should last awhile and it is the best primer I’ve used so far. It does a great job at creating a great canvas for additional foundation, getting rid of the redness of my sensitive skin and shrinking my pores. If you did not need much coverage, you could just use this product alone! The last new thing I tried is Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil and I’m sad to say that I do not like it at all. I know many people love the mineral makeups but just as my sister-in-law warned me, it made my face break out in tiny blemishes. I mean, not so many that I am screaming mad, but a few small bumps that I NEVER get is enough to make me return this immediately. I’ll just stick to a different powder to set my makeup (I’m going to try Make Up For Ever’s Super Matte Loose Powder next). So all of these so-so and not-so-good results makes me think its my foundation that is not keeping the oilies at bay. Maybe I should try something different there? I’m going to research and pick out a few to review, as always I’ll let you know how it goes!
