These are a few of my Favorite Things
Here are some of my favorite cosmetics/skincare products:
- -Tarte Smooth Operator Foundation SPF 20- I have been searching for a foundation like this my entire life and I have tried several. My main objectives: natural looking coverage without the cakiness/deposits some foundations can have, applies smoothly without too much work, & won’t cause breakouts. My most crucial question: Can it live up to the lighted “magnification” mirror test? It is true, I am a bit obsessed with my skin, but I notice so many ladies with horrible foundation, and then ask myself the question, “Am I one of THEM?” With this foundation and a superb primer, I can confidently respond, “Not me!” The SPF 20 is a bonus, love it, love it, love it!!!
- -Perricone MD Ceramic Smooth Skin Primer: this item is pricey, however, it is the most amazing product I have ever tried. After cleansing and moisturizing in the AM, apply the Ceramic Smoother and your makeup will glide on beautifully. You might even choose to skip the foundation altogether. It improves the texture of your skin and fills in small lines and imperfections. My pores have really decreased in size! I don’t know how this works, but Perricone really has developed something extraordinary. My advice, save up and splurge on this one!
- –Clinique’s Almost Lipstick in “Black Honey” and their newly released “Black Plum”
–Alison Raffael’s Concealer. Wonderfully silky and gives great coverage. This mineral based concealer really does a wonder under eyes and over blemishes.
- -Caudalie’s Skincare Line (I am falling in love, thanks a lot Meg’s esp. Kate–)Caudalie uses ingredients rich in Grape Goodness from their vineyards in France. Caudalie’s cleansers, moisturizers, serums, and treatments (like Vinoperfect) SMELL HEAVENLY! They are extremely gentle and effective for keeping your skin healthy, radiant, and feeeeling sooo soft! Oh LA LA!
