Stila Cosmetics Back in the UK

Stila Girl

Good news my dear friends across the pond!

Stila Cosmetics is back in the UK.

After some financial difficulties and a change in owners Stila pulled out of several markets including Asia and the UK but I’m happy to hear it’s back in the UK.

Yay!

Happy Days!

Fasio Airy Shield UV Screen SPF 50+ Review

Fasio Airy Shield UV Screen SPF 50+ 001

I always get alot of questions about what my favorite SPF products are. I use several to be honest because, well, I like variety. I imagine it doesn’t do any favors for my skin but I do in fact use a few that I like and I switch on and off between them.

If I’m outside for longer periods of time one of favs would be Fasio Airy Shield UV Screen SPF 50+/PA+++. Fasio is a Japanese brand by Kose which is available within Japan and a few other Asian markets. I’m not really a huge fan of Fasio makeup as it’s always disappointing particularly the mascaras but I do enjoy this sunscreen.

Let’s take a look!

MAC Prep + Primer Transparent Finishing Powder Pressed Review

celebs white powder

I love seeing celeb photos with the old translucent white powder mistake captured in a photo. Reminds me they are humans just like the rest of us…only humans with makeup artists that have heavy hands.

As for me? I’ve done the overdone translucent powder trick myself a time or two or several times. But I still use it…!

Stuff is solid gold joy for creating a flawless finish on your skin and it’s particularly a fav of mine for brightening up under my eyes and setting my concealer for all day wear.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelee Review, Photos, Swatches

Estee Lauder Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelee 001

You know that one makeup item that you tell (or maybe your friends and family are daring enough to tell you) yourself you shouldn’t be wearing? For me it’s highlighter…I’ve actually come to terms with telling myself, “No, you can’t wear shimmery highlighter.”

Yay me! I’m so happy when I give myself a good talking to and I listen.

I can’t really take advantage of highlighters because I have a round face and wearing them just makes things look even rounder. Not a good look.

However, I collect ‘em like the crazy beauty junkie I am. I have zillions of pretty powders that I don’t really use because if you notice, most of ‘em, almost always, have shimmer.

Of course, Estee Lauder Pure Color Illuminating Powder GelĂ©e pops up as part of their Fall 2011 Collection and my hands begin to sweat because I really need “da shimmery” powder.

Lucky enough I got one to show you today!

Givenchy Photo Perfexion Fluid Foundation SPF 20 PA+++

I can’t say I would mind dishing out near $50 bucks for Givenchy foundation. Hey, big spender….

But seriously, I think Givenchy has the potential to create something all kinds of amazing in a good base product and their new Photo Perfexion Fluid Foundation SPF 20 PA+++ sounds like such perfection to me.
