Mally Beauty Pro Tips Tricks 8 Piece Color Collection 1

I purchased the Mally Pro Tips & Tricks 8 Piece Color Collection about a month ago when it was an QVC Special Value. One of the reasons I got it was for the new Mally Beauty Evercolor Poreless Face Defender, this is an interesting product that should garner some attention if you have oily skin or larger pores to conceal.

Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Mineral Correcting Primer Review

Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Mineral Correcting Primer 1

I’ve always yearned for day that I would wake up and fall deeply in love with Benefit That Gal, it never happened. Sad sigh. Which is why I was pretty skeptical that the new Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Mineral Correcting Primer probably would fall into the realms of a no go.

The new range features three shades of primer to address various issues. The one I’m reviewing for you today is the Pink Highlighter which is a 3 in 1 Corrector, Primer, and SPF. The promise of smooth, brighter skin on the box tempted me however the color and idea reminded me very much of That Gal and my downfall with the product…

What did I think?

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!
