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!

Philosophy Miracle Worker Dark Spot Corrector Review

Philosophy Miracle Worker Dark Spot Corrector 8

Ah the old dark spot corrector….

I thank Clinique every single day for bringing hyper pigmentation and dark spots to the beauty world’s attention. I tried to love their Clinical Dark Spot Corrector but technically it was more about me using it religiously and convincing myself of how great it was working when it actually wasn’t doing much at all.

Sad fact.

On the upside, I really appreciate the trend they created because the dark spot world was sadly lacking and now the market is saturated with a slew of options for correcting hyper pigmentation, dark spots, and sun damage. Praise the skincare gods!

I have a small amount of hyper pigmentation I’d like to correct that’s located on my jawline/lower cheek area so I’ve been trying every single dark spot corrector around.

Believe me I’ve been through numerous bottles that promise me the world and by far the best one I’ve tried is Philosophy’s Miracle Worker Dark Spot Corrector.

You NEED this.

Lipstick Queen Jean Queen Lipstick Review & Swatches

Lipstick Queen Jean Queen Lipstick 1

My Lips But Better or commonly referred to as MLBB in the beauty community is a term coined for a shade of lipstick or gloss that’s comparable to that of your natural lip color only enhanced. A shade that gives your pout that perfect natural color that looks like your real lip color only way better.

MLBB shades are a rarity in my opinion. They aren’t something you run across daily and you may have to go through dozens of lipsticks and glosses to run across a single shade of MLBB. I’ve tried plenty of shades of lipstick and tons of gloss and can only give the coveted MLBB title to a very, very few shades in my stash.

If anyone deserves the title of the perfect shade of MLBB it would have to go to Lipstick Queen Jean Queen Lipstick. I recently told you the tale of Lipstick Queen Jean Queen Lipgloss, now let me tell you one about the lipstick.
