Physicians Formula Mineral Wear 3-in-1 Setting Powder

Getting-ready-to-apply-Physicians-Formula-MIneral-Wear-3-in-1-Setting-Powder
I’ve been traveling quite a bit this summer so paring down the amount of makeup I take with me has been a must. One that is great just for travel is this PHYSICIANS FORMULA Mineral Wear 3-in-1 Setting Powder ($15.99 @ physiciansformula.com, walgreens.com).

As the name states, it’s a 3-in-1 of the face’s necessities:

Set (translucent setting powder).

Bright (the pink shade) will brighten up under the eyes and give your skin a glow.

Bake (the yellow powder) for helping concealer to set under the eyes and not crawl into wrinkles.

Applying-Fenty-Beauty-Pro-F
I wish every single brand would come out with minis of all their products! It’s just so much easier to try out a smaller size of something before committing to the regular version. So thank you FENTY BEAUTY for creating these travel-size deluxe sizes of some of your most popular products.

And remember, because it’s a smaller size, it won’t cost you as much!

Check out da minis @ sephora.com, fentybeauty.com and Sephora stores:

Beauty Blender RE-DEW & Selfie Shield

Beauty-Blender-RE-DEW-and-Selfie-Shield-flat-lay-for-pinterest
Remember when the BEAUTY BLENDER brand was just about that teardrop shape of sponge? Well they’ve expanded the offerings over the last few years into makeup brushes, cleansers and even a highlighter.

Good prep products are needed when it’s hot out, like a primer and setting spray. Lately, I’ve been using their 'Selfie Shield' Broad Spectrum SPF 38 Dry Oil Primer ($32/1oz @ beautyblender.com). This is the second primer oil I’ve tried and I think I’m in. It’s clear, lightweight, quick-absorbing and helps protect the skin as well as get it ready for anything you put on top of it. It also contains vitamin C and E, so you’re doing some attack on lines and wrinkles at the same time.

Rude Cosmetics Primer Oil

Rude-Cosmetics-Primer-Oil-in-Rose-Gold-Glow-and-Eyeshadow-Primer-Oil
It really surprising how much face and eye primers have become part of our makeup application routine. I mean, I always wear them and when I forget, I almost feel like starting over my face to include them.

Two I’ve been using the past month or so are from Indy brand, RUDE COSMETICS. They are both oils so I was up to the challenge of testing them out.

It Cosmetics Confidence In A Foundation

It-Cosmetics-Confidence-In-A-Foundation
Leave it to It Cosmetics to come out with my staple foundation. IT COSMETICS Confidence In A Foundation ($32/1oz @ itcosmetics.com, sephora.com, ) keeps the confidence going and they claim up to 24-hours. 24 hours? I’m not sure how they test that trait out. I mean, do they actually have test subjects wear the foundation for up to 24-hours to see how it wears? And when do they consider the time is up on wear-time? All things that make you go hmmmm…

Urban Decay Game of Thrones Palette

Urban-Decay-Game-of-Thrones-Palette-unfolded
By now you’ve probably seen all the photos of the URBAN DECAY UD / Game of Thrones Palette ($65 @ urbandecay.com, ulta.com) and a lot of you picked it up as it’s sold out on their website! What a stellar collab.

The palette is comprised of the five house names of GOT – House Targaryen, House Lannister, House Stark, The North. I had to ask a GOT friend of mine how to refer to these five names as I don’t watch the show!.

Check out these 20 shades of mattes, metallic and frosty shimmers inside the palette. It has 16 shades and four transformer shadows.  

Click below to see the look I created and my thoughts on the palette overall!

Kat Von D Lock-It Powder Foundation

Kat-Von-D-Lock-It-Powder-Foundation

Applying-Kat-Von-D-Lock-It-Powder-Foundation
Overall, I've pretty much had a good experience with just about every KAT VON D beauty product I've tried. But this next one really hits the ball out of the park! It's her new Lock-It Powder Foundation ($36 @ sephora.com). 

When it comes to full-coverage powder foundations, I've only experienced a handful of them and really the only one I can remember is Bare Escentuals. 

What It Is: A vegan powder foundation that delivers full-coverage, instant blurring, and extreme long wear, in a sexy compact. Lock-It Powder Foundation is formulated with rice powder extract to blur away imperfections. Kaolin, a clay mineral, helps give a diffused, matte finish without feeling dry, making this formula ideal for a range of skin types.
