Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Foundation & Concealer

Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer

This concealer is supposed to be a treatment for undereyes puffiness and fine lines, and gives an instant smooth and fill of fine lines in addition to concealing the dark circles. The concealer comes in 4 different shades in addition to 1 naturalizer and 1 brightener.

The concealer’s formula is a bit runny, kind of similar to MAC Moisture Cover and Smashbox High Definition Liquid Concealer, its a lightweight concealer that gives medium coverage. I have serious dark circles so i have to use a corrector before applying it to give better results. It gives good coverage and i love its texture and formula, the product is best not be dragged and its better to be dabbed. You can use a dense brush and the best ones are the Synthetic Precision brushes by Sigma (i use the P84 which is the angled one).

The foundation is almost similar in texture as the concealer, a bit more liquidy that normal foundations, very lightweighted, and the coverage is light to medium. I havent used it heavy yet so i am not sure if it goes more than medium. It has collagen so it means it will tighten the skin and improve its elasticity. The foundation doesnt work with dragging just like the concealer, dabbing works best with a dense brush, best used with Sigma Synthetic Kabuki brushes (i use the F84 which is the angled one).

I think both are really good products, they dont get too oily on my skin, they feel very smooth and natural, i dont take too much time in blending, they get blended pretty easily with the skin. This line is supposed to be an anti-aging one, best suitable to be used by ladies who hit their 27 years and onwards.
The only thing i didnt like about these products is the applicator, it got a fluffy soft sponge tip, rolling the bottle will get the product inside the sponge and then i have to dab it on my skin, and this feels pretty gross. The sponge tip gets damb and it gets really dirty, there is no way to clean it, so i assume it is a great place for bacteria to live in. I dont recommend leaving the product staying on your vanity for too long, once you get the product use it all the time until it finishes, its just gross, i dont like the feeling at all.

Esmee Denters Fresh Makeup

Remember Esmee Denters with the hit song Outta Here that came out a couple of years ago? She’s was featured in one of Pixiwoo’s makeup tutorial videos. Here makeup is very fresh and natural if you wont wear false lashes, i love the summery bright lips.

Trend Alert: Open Shoulder

The open shoulder trend is here again, do you remember it when it came many years ago? probably 10 years if not more..When i saw it coming back i backed up a bit!! I dont really like old fashion coming back again, maybe because i think for a moment that it is going to be the same, forgetting the magic of fashion and how it can transform anything into a beauty. So clearly i am in love with the come back of the open shoulder trend!!

Just got the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser for Dark Circles, i got the shade in Honey. I am going to tell you what i think about it in few days. I also got the foundation but it will arrive in few days.

P.S.: i am writing this post using the WordPress App for iPhone so i am not sure how it is going to appear on the website.

SMASHBOX Sheer Focus Tinted Moisturizer

I love tinted moisturizers, i got a dozen and i like to use them equally beside the foundations, so its like one day for a foundation and the next for a tinted moisturizer, i love most of what i got and they give me a natural glow with a very light coverage if not non, some just give me a natural glow like almost having a healthy skin.

So i went this time and got the Smashbox Sheer Focuz Tinted Moisturizer, as it says it is sheer so there is barely coverage, and it has the Citrus Honey moisturization technology that nourishes the skin in addition the UVA/UVB SPF15 protection, beside that it is an oil-free product so it is very suitable for oily skin. The tinted moisturizer comes in 4 shades from Fair to Dark in addition to a translucent one called Luminous, and this is what i got.

The Luminous can be worn alone or mixed with any of the shades to add a natural glow. I decided to just wear it alone and powder it with the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural with a big fluffy brush, so the color itself will come from the powder with a bit of an underglow from the tinted moisturizer. The skin doesnt get oily as fast as the other regular tinted moisturizer, it is very lightweighted, natural and definitely beautifully glowy.

*When some products like foundations and tinted moisturizers are described to have a glowy effect it doesnt mean that it is shimmery or anything like that, but the product itself gives a natural radiant effect, like a natural light coming out of the skin/face.
