Becca First Light Priming Filter Instant Complexion Refresh & Oct Sephora Play Review

 

Becca First Light Priming Filter Instant Complexion

This is an interesting primer for me, considering that it’s very thin and watery but that’s where it stops disappointing me. Spreading fast and soaking in enough to quench your dry skin but leaving just enough remaining on the surface allowing your foundation to glide on like silk. This multi tasking lavender Hued, limonene smelling refresher has more than a few tricks up its sleeve. I get a sad amount of rest mon-friday so my favorite aspect of Becca’s First Light Priming Filter Intstant Complexion Refresh is its ability to do just that! I’m beyond impressed I mean come on girls what’s the worst time to put on makeup?

At the butt crack of dawn after 3 1/2 hrs of sleep scratchy red eyes, dry skin deprived of life, reacting like a vampire at mid-day while flipping on the light switch to the vanity mirror Oh yeah I just went there! No matter how tired I am this stuff perks me up so To get my makeup routine going. Let’s not forget the light reflecting shimmer finish to top it off. I have found this primer works well with just using a light blush to set it with a touch of concealer of course under the eyes makes for a very I’m not wearing hardly any makeup but Fresh and healthy skin look.

Makeup Forever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation R230

I had a mixed first impression of this foundation In the beginning. For starters the shade was off by a good way if you have any makeup subscription’s you know that shade matching on your behalf can be hit or miss so I had to use some color correcting drops by Algenist witch I love by the way but well get into that another time. To get’t help but feel that the correcting drops lessened the HD photo finishing effect its so famous for. Allure gave it their Best of Beauty Award in 2015 and in their most recent formula revamping have gained Allure’s readers choice award in 2017. I went to the Makeup Forever website looking for a much lighter option where I was surprised to find forty shades and the one I received in my play box R230 was the sixth shade on the first row of the lightest tones so I definitely want to purchase this product in the very near future in a more suitable shade although I’m leaning more towards their stick version just because I prefer coverage and application of a stick vs a liquid.

Makeup Forever Ultra HD Skin Booster

I have to be honest here girls I really don’t feel anything amazing from this product it’s okay it is nice to have any hyaluronic acid formula in Your Arsenal as far as hydration is concerned. I tried this product on my face before I put my foundation on and it caused the foundation to roll for example if you haven’t exfoliated a while and you rub your skin with a good bit of pressure the skin can roll off that’s the only way To get try to explain it but that’s what happened when I used it as directed. To get say it was good to put on after cleansing my face before bed to hydrate through the night but for $41.00 you’d be much better off going through eBay and purchasing some hyaluronic acid for $10 to $12 that does the same thing.

Cover Fx Custom Enhancer Drops in Moonlight

I love this stuff! I’ve been using it every day since I received it back in October I take a few drops of my foundation in the palm of my hand and a drop of this stuff, mix it together and it creates that Dewey glow for the ones that love that look this is the product for you. You can have your choice of nine shades seven being illuminators and two matte bronzers. Most of them have a bronze look to them except for one which is called Halo it has a Pearly frosty look.

With a price of $42 on Sephora I decided I’d take a chance on wish.com for $4 of course we will see if it’s authentic you never know. As always I recommend eBay you can find the Deluxe sample size of 2.8ml for $8 to $10 I’ve been using it five days a week for over a month now and it’s only Halfway Gone the full size is 15 mL which ranges from about $17 to $25 on eBay .

Laura Mercier Loose setting powder in Translucent

This is not your standard setting powder it leaves behind a matte finish for the most part, I sense the most minuscule amount of shimmer but not enough to call it shimmery. It locks makeup into place with all day while giving additional Shine Control also gives a blurring effect. I recommend using this to set your foundation and concealer before adding your blush and or highlighter. It’s very sheer not cakey at all there are two shades for this setting powder translucent for fair all the way to tan complexions and translucent medium-deep for medium to the deepest complexions. The deluxe sample size that I received is 3.5 g it’s quite difficult to use considering the opening is hardly big enough to get your brush into. Sephora has the 9 gram container which they consider a mini size for $23 and their full size is $38. Although this is a nice setting powder my go-to is Physicians Formula happy booster & glow and mood boosting face powder #7318 it’s considered translucent but it has several colors in the compact in the shape of hearts in different sizes. They also have at least four other shapes that I know of in the mood boosting formula it’s great I highly recommend. As always it is been a pleasure and I hope that any of this information could’ve been helpful in helping you make an informed purchase when in doubt search eBay for the best price. And remember true beauty comes from within.
