Sorry guys little late with my review of the Laura Geller Escape to the Tropics Color Collection but quite fitting as the weather is so very Spring-like today. It was nice pulling this gorgeous kit out of my review pile and indulging in tropical hues and not worrying about how I had to get out my deep sea diving gear to make my way into the snow, wet, and cold! Today we got sun, a brisk cool breeze, and the birds chirping crazily in excitement that maybe, just maybe, Spring might be on the way!
I HOPE you all got your hands on this set but if not, no worries, it’s still available so after the review if you’re wanting it you can indulge!
If you hit up your drugstore for Spring makeup you’ll have some rather refreshing options in the foundation department. Both Almay and Revlon have new hydrating mineral foundation available. My recent test out with Almay Wake Up Hydrating Makeup ended rather badly but I still wanted to test our the Revlon ColorStay Aqua Mineral Makeup as well out of curiosity.
The idea behind the powders is that they give a burst of cool, refreshing finish. These are ideal placements for Spring considering your face is probably dry and suffering from the Winter blues and something cool, refreshing, and hydrating as a base would be a fab little pick. Agreed?
Sadly, Almay’s version proceeded to oxidize right on contact and offered very little in the way of coverage. Let’s check out Revlon and see if they have a better product on their hands!
I do think the idea of “color” matching foundation formulas sounds cool but end up making us laugh a little. Foundation that magically turns into our perfect shade? Mmm always skeptical when it comes to these product eh? Almay does one as does a few other companies. In some cases they can work if they actually match your skin tone however in most cases, let’s be honest, they prob aren’t that perfect match we are seeking. Considering blushes and lipsticks also embrace this technology and fail at it, is it really any wonder that foundations can’t cut it either?
Josie Maran Matchmaker Argan Serum Foundation is the newest product to embrace this “technology” with a breakthrough color match technology that supposedly reads and instantly adjusts to match to your skin tone for your own unique shade of foundation!
Does it work?
The appeal of Lola Masquerade Foundation can probably be left unspoken by me. Gorgeous packaging right? Glass, vintage style jar….Mmm, yes I don’t think I need to say much here.
But there’s also the fact that Lola dubs it a trip to the “fountain of youth”, do you think that trip includes Captain Jack as your wing man? I sure as hell hope so at $45 a jar.
Supposedly the formula contains revolutionary Chinese medicinal ingredients that help restore your skin to a more youthful appearance. I’m honestly not sure about all that after using it for a few weeks however I can tell you about the formula….
The Covergirl NatureLuxe Collection should be winging its way to your local drugstore if it isn’t already there (chances it is as I’ve seen displays up everywhere). This is Covergirl’s big launch for the new year featuring Taylor Swift as their spokeswoman.
The NatureLuxe Collection is a higher end product with a more luxurious formula that can found at local drugstores. Honestly, when they said luxury makeup I was a bit wary of the price but turns out the Natureluxe Silk Foundation is merely $11.99 so yes a bit higher than the norm but not by much and still very fitting for the budget beauty shopper.
The collection is not an organic line of product it does however rely on quality ingredients that are inspired by a more green friendly makeup.
What did I think of the new Covergirl Natureluxe Silk Foundation?
