Lately, my skin has been flaky in many places. A lot of it is from acne and some of it is because of the weird New York weather. I tend to gravitate towards matte foundations because my skin’s version of a dewy look is normally a sweaty look. But matte foundations look terrible over flaky skin! bareMinerals ‘Complexion Rescue’ Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream is awesome! I had heard a few things about it that I really liked before I bought it. It is formulated different from any other “foundation” type of product, so your skin gets a lot out of it. This YouTube video really made an impression on me. Niomi explains this product really well, and how it is so different from anything else.
It sits really well on the skin. It doesn’t feel sticky or heavy. It blends in really well, and I normally have the worst time blending products like this in! If you are looking for full coverage, this is not for you. This just provides a sheer wash of color to even out your skin tone. I do use a concealer on top of it, where I need to. I wouldn’t recommend using a primer under it. It does not need it, and I would think that the primer would block some of the benefits.
bareMinerals Smoothing Face Brush was made specifically for this tinted moisturizer. I did not buy it. For a brush, it was a little too pricy. I find that this tinted moisturizer clings to my brushes, and is hard to wash off. I feel like I am wasting a bunch of product that way. For me, just blending it in with my fingers works the best!

Eyeshadow is a beautiful addition to any makeup look whether you go for neutral shades or bright colors. Or maybe you prefer cream shadows over powder. For many of us, no matter the amount of effort we put into blending our beautiful pigments, it always creases. Every time we close our eyes the is a nice thick band of clumpy eyeshadow in the crease of out eyelid. Yum. My current go-to product, to avoid that clumpy issue, is Tarte’s Colored Clay CC Eye Primer Stick…read more
Vapour Beauty makes beauty products from non-toxic, natural, organic and mineral ingredients. All of their products are a beautiful quality inside beautiful packaging. On their website, there is a list of dupes where you can find clean replacements for your favorite cult products. Their Lipstick, in the color Purr, is a dupe for Nars’ Lipstick in the color Sex Machine. I’ve had heart eyes for Nars’ Sex Machine for quite a while but did not want the less than desirable ingredients. I’m so glad I found Vapour’s Purr…read more
