Sana Hadanomy Collagen Cream Review

Sana Hadanomy Collagen Cream 1

Today I close off my Sana Hadaomy Skincare Collection reviews with the most important product in the trio, the cream! I’ve already reviewed the mist and toner which should be used prior to the cream which I’ll tell you about today.

I’ve been using the three pieces as my AM skincare for the past few months and I have to say I really have enjoyed the run with it. I have no other skin products that need testing at the moment so I’ll continue on with this since it works out so well for me.

Let’s have a look!

Revlon Molten Metal Eyeshadow Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

Ohh who here has come across the Revlon Heavenly Metal Collection? Likey so much dude! They have three shades of Revlon Molten Metal Eyeshadow Palettes. These palettes feature a duo of baked shadows, seriously, has Revlon ever done baked shadows before? Love! I have such a weakness for baked eyeshadows.

Revlon Molten Metal Eyeshadow Palette 3

I picked up the Silver/Gold duo and I was kinda left wishing they had better shades available like some sort of bronze, brown combo? But sadly, no dice.

However, the Silver/Gold does the trick.

Let’s check it!

Revlon Smoky Crayon Bronze Smoke Review, Swatches, Photos

Revlon Smoky Crayon Bronze Smoke 1

Revlon has brand new Luxurious Color Smoky Crayons available for Spring 2011. These pencils mimic the idea of MAC Greasepaint or MAC Shadesticks. It’s basically a chubby pencil which you can use to fill your lid and blend out for a smoked look. If you already own Greasepaints and Shadesticks in various shades you probably won’t absolutely need the Revlon Smoky Crayon however it is a nice budget option to have available!

Let’s have a peek!

NYX HD Studio Primer Review, Swatches, Photos

NYX HD Studio Primer 1

I’m not diligent with primer. I know, I know, I should be. For me priming isn’t a necessity in terms of concealing larger pores but more an optional one that helps prep my skin for makeup and hopefully keeps it wearing long and strong and of course, if it’s Summer, I have hopes it’ll keep oily skin from making me look all kinds of greasy!

In almost all cases I prefer a primer that’s hydrating and moisturizing however I do find such a primer does oxidize my base fairly quickly so it isn’t helping to keep my makeup around long, it is however aiding it to disappear quicker. Not cool. I do know for a fact that prepping prior, not just with moisturizer, is essential for me because my skin is drier in the Winter and it doesn’t look too fabulous if I don’t add some sort of primer prior to adding my base product.

So I guess primer does become an essential item in the long run for me….

After hearing about NYX HD Studio Primer, I simply purchased one on a whim because I knew many of you would want to hear about it. I expected very little from it because I assumed it would prove to be 1. filled with silcones (my least favorite formula when it comes to primer and oh so damn itchy) and 2. gimmicky due to the “HD” nature of the product. I’m not a big “HD” makeup fan and find it a little ridiculous however NYX did successfully make me smile and start to believe in the HD idea after reading the boxes on their HD Collection which simply read “…perfect coverage for taking fun pics with pals….” I don’t think any HD line has successfully said it as nicely or as cute. I see HD lines being pimped out on how great you’ll look, how flawless, etc…kinda makes you think you’ll be on TV or in print ads if you use the line…but NYX just puts it out there that you’ll look good in photos that you take with friends….I dunno I find this cute and very down to earth.

Anyway…

You’d like the review eh?

Well jump!
