Missha Misa Geumsul Vitalizing Finisher Review & Swatches

Missha Misa Geumsul Vitalizing Finisher 3

Many of you know I’m a huge Clarins Flash Balm fan girl so of course, Missha Misa Geumsul Vitalizing Finisher intrigued me! Missha Misa Geumsul Vitalizing Finisher is actually a product you use after your primary skincare, in the AM, and prior to your makeup. So in a sense, it’s a lot like the way I use Clarins Flash Balm!

The general idea of the product is to create a base for makeup but also to sooth and treat tired looking skin and revitalize it with Ginseng extract. So it not only adds moisture but also keeps skin look bright and happy. Apparently it contains herbal oriental medication…but a quick look at the ingredients doesn’t reveal much (Ginseng extract, Squalene, Honey, Albiflora Root Extract, Prunus Mume Flower Extract, Cinnamomum Camphora (Camphor) Leaf Extract, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract, Cnidium Officinale Root Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Leaf Extract, Angelica Keiskei Leaf/Stem Extract).

Let’s take a look!

Eve Lom Radiance Lift Foundation Review & Swatches

Eve Lom Radiance Lift

Eve Lom Radiance Lift Foundation ($60) is probably one of my most favorite high end foundations of the moment.

I’m actually more of a BB Cream girl but lately I’ve been testing out a good deal of fluid and second-skin like foundations and really loving the formulas. Eve Lom Radiance Lift Foundation isn’t marketed as such a formula but the super lightweight texture provides very, very good coverage and has a smooth, weightless feel on my complexion. I love breathable coverage as I don’t need a ton of it so anything that not only looks natural but feels natural makes my skin very happy indeed.

Pur Minerals Wine Exfoliating Mask Review

Pur Minerals Wine Exfoliating Mask 10

Pur Minerals Wine Exfoliating Mask ($29) is one of my favorite skincare products of the moment. Although classified as an exfoliating mask I assumed I’d be sitting around with this on my face while eating bon bons and watching the Knick. But actually, it’s not your typical facial mask! It’s more of a scrub! Bless be! That’s great news because I honestly anything that’s mask related in a jar, well, typically it doesn’t work for me. That’s why I’m a fond fan of the instant results many Asian sheet masks provide. I’m just not the type to see around with green goo on my face in the hopes I’ll look brighter and smoother with no real elbow grease.

Pur Minerals Wine Exfoliating Mask however, works a treat at getting my skin glowing, smooth, and gorgeous with a little scrubbing action!

Guerlain KissKiss Lipstick Review & Swatches

Guerlain KissKiss Lipsticks

For Fall 2014, Guerlain KissKiss Lipstick ($37) released in twenty five reformulated shades. The updated formula contains a lip shaping and plumping effect as well as hyaluronic acid spheres that provide moisture and help to retain it.

The Guerlain KissKiss Lipstick formula has always been incredible and Guerlain is a master at creating some beautifully textured high end lipstick so I’m more than happy that they decided a reformulation was in order for Fall. I doubt you can top something that’s already incredible but I’m sure Guerlain can do so!
