NYX Full Coverage Concealer Jar Review & Swatches

NYX Full Coverage Concealer Jar 3

NYX’s original concealer in a jar wasn’t exactly the best formula in the world as I found it a tad on the drying side.

Flash forward to Spring 2012 and NYX Full Coverage Concealer Jar is back with a new and improved formula. Does the formula handle concealing woes any better than the original?

Lumene Arctic Aqua Moisture Booster Review

Lumene Arctic Aqua Moisture Booster 1

If you have drier skin I’m sure it proves challenging to wear powder products. Blush, minerals, finishing powder, it all looks less than smooth on a dry surface and heck, application of these products will sometimes even age you due to that dryness.

Moisturizer is sometimes not nearly enough. I know my struggle with dry skin takes an arsenal of products to tame. Mists, moisturizers, serums, etc….

There are a ton of hydrating primers on the market as well lately versus a few years ago when hydrating primers weren’t as popular and silicone based ones were the order of the day.

Now here’s a little treat that I’m enjoying at the moment from Lumene.

Lumene Arctic Aqua Moisture Booster, a super inexpensive way to inject a good deal of moisture into tired, dry skin.

Yes!

Please!
