bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Claims

The foundation is packed with Marine botanicals which will help replenish thirsty and dull skin. Even though its hydrating and can be described as a tinted moisturizer, I still use a moisturizer before I apply it.  If you are new here, I love to be hydrated and dewy. For me this covered just enough to be absolutely perfect for everyday wear. My skin looks put together if that makes sense. Just enough coverage with a radiant complexion to give you a youthful glow!  Not too sheer and not medium coverage, the best way to describe it is  light coverage. Perfect to even out your skin tone. I set my T Zone in my face (forehead, nose area and chin) with powder to control my shine. Even though this is a dewy foundation I still like to combat some shine where I get oily.

SWATCHES: (Top to Bottom)

Bare Minerals sent two shades to try and per the descriptions on Ulta’s Website I felt the two shades would be best and honestly both work for me!

Wheat 4.5: medium skin tones with neutral undertones

Bamboo 5.5: light to medium skin tones with warm to neutral undertones

tinted moisturizer

SPF built in, to evening out your skin tone along with creating a radiant glow the bare Minerals Complexion Rescue foundation is a keeper for me!

NARS Orgasm 2018 Collection: What Makes You Blush?!

NARS Orgasm blush was my first NARS product. Again I was reading my beauty bible, Allure Magazine. It talked about the shade was universally flattering on everyone and with my blush obsession it had to be mine. NARS Orgasm blush is a gorgeous peachy pink with a golden shimmer. It goes with almost all looks and gives a bit of glow and dimension to your face because of the built in shimmer. It is not glittery at all! To put it simply NARS Orgasm is an award winning iconic beauty product.  The NEW Summer collection allows us to … “experience the iconic and universally-flattering shade in four new stimulating textures for Summer 2018. Orgasm Illuminating Loose Powder illuminates and accentuates the face while Orgasm Afterglow Lip Balm tints and smooths lips. Also included in the collection is an oversized Orgasm Blush and Orgasm Full Vinyl Lip Lacquer to drench lips in a mirror-like shine – NARS COSMETICS

Its always a good time in my opinion to try more blush lol so if you ask me if you need to try this blush I will always say yes! However for me the star of this summer collection is the loose powder. It is soft and silky like it is described and the shade it a bit different from the traditional blush with  a rose gold tint to it.  It it not glittery at all and just glows and glows and glows! Extremely happy this is a permanent item and not limited edition!
