I’m trying two new products today! I figured I’d better start using some of this stuff I’ve been stockpiling.
I got the BFR (Beauty For Real) Get Glowing Get Lit in my July Wantables subscription box and it’s absolutely marvelous. It’s like three things in one – a cheek color, an illuminator, and a mirror! The cheek color I got is In The Pink and the luminizer is Get Lit. Both worked well on me and I got lots of complements on my look. The In the Pink is a nice rose color that will look great on almost any complexion. It’s a cream product, so I applied it with my fingers and blended with a brush. The great thing about it being a cream is that it doesn’t settle into the fine lines that I am beginning to develop. (Geesh!)
The luminzer provided a nice highlight. Nothing super special, but nice. For me, the best thing were that the two products came in one compact, there was a mirror, and they wore very well. I put them on in the morning and by early evening, I still looked fresh. Could a girl ask for more?
Sunscreen is not something that I typically have cared much about, but I have been more conscientious as of late. As I age, I feel the effects of the sun more. Besides, the sun takes a toll on the skin regardless of skin color. It may not be as readily apparent, but the ravages of time and elements tend to catch up so I was really glad to pick up The Supernatural in a haul from Hautelook.
This peach tinted product provides a broad spectrum sun screen while minimizing pores and softening the appearance of wrinkles. It does have a silicone based formula, so if you’re trying to avoid silicone, you’ll want to give this one a pass. Personally, I liked it. I applied this over my usual moisturizer and under my foundation. It didn’t feel too heavy, I didn’t sweat like a pig from the additional layer, and I got an overall flawless look. I recommend you give it a try. You can find it online or at Ulta Beauty.
So that’s it for now from Makeup on Aisle 64.
Get glowing but wear sunscreen!
