Beauty Babble: Weathering Makeup

beauty+babble

Wanna Beauty Babble with me? During our last babble we were hit with survival beauty and all the essentials we’d need in dire situations.

How To Play:
The Beauty Babble section basically is a scenario of “possibilities” with questions and answers about what you’d do in situations where cosmetics would be needed!

Today’s babble is about various weather conditions and makeup items or skincare you’d need in such situations!

Jump ahead to read my babblings and submit your own if you’re wanting to play!

You head to work on Monday expecting it to be like any other day of the week when your boss pulls you aside with some incredible news. He relates to you that he wants to send you to London for the entire Summer to work at the UK branch. You’re so excited you can’t believe your good luck! As soon as you leave his office you dial up your best friend who lives in England to share the details. Your best friend informs you that it would be a terrible time to come to London right now because the predicted weather for the next three months is gloomy, cloudy weather and rain! You’re kinda feel badly after you hear this especially since you’re having perfect Summer weather right at home. You keep your chin up and decided you’ll need a few makeup essentials to bring Summer with you to cold, dreary London. What will they be (choose five)?

I’d choose a fun Summer scent, a great bronzer, a pretty shade of blush, a shimmery, Summery palette for my eyes, and a good primer to keep my makeup from falling off my face in the rain!

My picks:

Fragrance: Harajuku Lovers G
Warm, coconut will help me think Summer during those rainy days!

Bronzer:
Urban Decay Baked Bronze in Glided
As if you haven’t heard enough how much I love this bronzer! Shimmery cheeks with hint of gold and peach will bring a little sun to my cloudy day in London!

Blush:
MAC Eversun Blush
My ideal blush this Summer and plenty peachy to bring a little color into my world on dreary days!

Eyeshadow Palette:
Kate Von D Gypsy Eyeshadow Palette
A slew of Summery greens to spring up my look in the rain!

Primer:
Korres Face Primer
Love this stuff! Keeps my makeup so fresh! Hopefully it’ll help keep it waterproof too!

Your best friend asks you to dinner on Friday night and explains she has amazing news to tell you! You meet up with her and as you’re ordering dinner she springs on you she’s getting married to an Arabian Sheikh. With your mouth hanging open you gasp in shock! After getting over your shock you gush how excited you are for her. After the waiter leaves with your order you proceed to ask her for all the details. She explains that the wedding will take place in the Sahara Desert. Trying not to gasp in shock you begin plotting skincare items you’re going to need to keep your face properly moist. Pick three items to keep your skin in order!

My picks:

Lush Ocean Salt
Most people don’t use Ocean Salt on their face because they feel it’s too harsh but I happen to love it! It’s ideal for those crazy desert days when my skin begins to flake up!

Mandom Perfect Assist 24 Double Moist Cream
This will keep my skin moist and dewy while the sun is beating down on my head!

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sun Block
Gotta have high SPF for those sunny days in the desert! 85+ on this one! w00t!

Ok! Now it’s your turn. The desert and dreary, cold rain for three months! Babble it peeps and tell me what you’d need to survive these nasty weather conditions.

Korres Face Primer

Oh my eyes spy a brand new primer from Korres!

korres+primer

Since I’m such a Korres fan girl I’m all over the new Korres Face Primer. My ears perked when I heard “silicone-free”, oh I love you my little silicon free primer. Creates flawless skin sans silicone indeed I’m liking this more and more.

I hate silicon based primers with a passion as they make me itchy and they pill on my face. This formula is silicon-free and is a 99% natural formula that refines skin texture while minimizing fine lines, wrinkles, and pores.

I wants it!

What do you think?

Wish list?

Tell the Muse!

Korres Ginger & Vitamins Foundation Review

I sweat Korres so hard. Oh we already established that didn’t we?

But seriously I’m just loving so hard on Korres lately and can’t help myself. I’m so excited for Summer as I’m looking forward to what they might be releasing!

In the mean time let’s talk shop about how wonderful Korres Ginger & Vitamins Foundation is.

Korres+Ginger+%26+Vitamins+Foundation+2

Korres+Ginger+%26+Vitamins+Foundation+4

Jump ahead for the big rave.

Korres Ginger & Vitamins Foundation is formulated without parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, and phthalate. Loving the natural formula aren’t you? The formula is packed full of vitamins C and E, SPF 10, and ginger extract to tone and moisturize!

Korres+Ginger+%26+Vitamins+Foundation+5

Korres+Ginger+%26+Vitamins+Foundation+7

Korres+Ginger+%26+Vitamins+Foundation+8

I wouldn’t call Korres Ginger & Vitamins Foundation a true “foundation” as it’s a very light, sheer coverage and for this I’d say it was more like a tinted moisturizer but that doesn’t stop me from simply loving it. As the weather warms I’ll appreciate the light formula that evens out my skin tone, gives my face a soft, radiant glow, and gives just the right amount of coverage to my face to make it look flawless and healthy.

The formula is water based which makes it fast absorbing, non greasy, and easy to blend. Korres Ginger & Vitamins Foundation packs all the good stuff inside and leaves out many ingredients that could be irritating to skin which is why I highly recommend trying this out if you’re sensitive or easy to break out. The formula is light weight but allows for decent buildable coverage that leaves behind a very natural, flawless look.

I’m partial to the interesting “toothpaste” style packaging design as a tiny squeeze gets me exactly what I need to do my entire fast while making it easy to travel with, easy to store, and easy to get that very last drop of product out of the tube when you’re through.

If you’re seeking lighter coverage due to warmer weather, problem skin (clogged pores, acne, sensitive skin, etc…) or just like feel the need for a more natural, lighter foundation I highly suggest checking out Korres Ginger & Vitamins Foundation. This one is a winner and Muse Approved for purchase.

Loves this one!

Check it out at Sephora or Korres.

Korres Yoghurt Mask Review

Join me this week as my love affair with Korres Natural Products continues! At this point I won’t be happy until I tried out the entire line and taken over the Korres world. It’s empire shall be mine!

If you missed some of my most recent love do hop on over to see what I’ve been raving on and on about and then jump ahead to my latest review of Korres Yoghurt Moisturizing Mask.

Korres White Tea Facial Fluid Gel Cleanser Review

Korres Body Butter In Quince Review

Korres Yoghurt Mask…god doesn’t that sound bloody brilliant? “Yoghurt…” I feel like I’m in England! Damn Americans we ruin the language..we forgot the “h” somewhere when the word traveled across the pond.

Korres+Yoghurt+Mask+8

Korres+Yoghurt+Mask+9

Korres+Yoghurt+Mask+1

Korres+Yoghurt+Mask+2

Anyway.

Korres Yoghurt Mask is a soothing, cooling, mask meant to hydrate oily skin that feels dehydrated. Whoa…that was way technical for the Muse…how does oily skin feel dehydrated? I’m so confused.

Korres+Yoghurt+Mask+4

Korres+Yoghurt+Mask+5

But have no fear…..I tried it the past week or so and it’s working on my DRY not so oily, dehydrated skin. I’ve never found a moisture mask that I really liked or one that worked for that matter. In the case of Korres Yoghurt Mask it does technically deliver a good dose of much needed moisture to my skin but it also successfully makes my already dry skin feel a bit tighter after I wash it off.

The formula is a creamy moisturizing blend that has little to no scent and contains good for you ingredients like yoghurt, watercress extract, vitamin E, and olive oil. Simply apply a layer of the mask onto skin and wait for 10-15 minutes prior to rinsing off.

Korres+Yoghurt+Mask+7

Korres+Yoghurt+Mask+6

It feels rather wonderful on my skin and I was particularly delighted that it absorbed fully as I waited for 15 minutes. After washing off I was equally thrilled at how moist my face was feeling but sadly after I dried off my skin began to feel a bit on the tight side which triggered my need to slather myself in good night cream to avoid the oncoming dryness I knew was about to crop up.

I don’t blame the product because in this case I believe that it’s my own silly skin causing the problems as I’m already quite dry with the cold weather and this is meant for oily skin. I’m looking forward to giving this another test out and a new review in the Summer when my skin is alot less dry and a whole lot oily!

It deserves to be mentioned that the formula is amazingly skin friendly and contains 83.2% Natural ingredients while excluding all of the following preservatives and chemicals:

Mineral Oil
Silicons
Parabens
Alcohol
Animal by Products (not tested on animals either)
Synthetic dye
Sulfates

See more below:

Korres+Yoghurt+Mask+3

I’m pretty impressed with how far Korres has taken the “natural” product rage and I’m equally impressed with how well everything has worked for me in the collection. I’ll definately be exploring the line more deeply and bringing you more reviews soon.

Anyone tried Korres Yoghurt Mask?
