Neutrogena Shine Control Foundation & Powder Review

28 September 2012

Okay, so I know that I've been on a slight roll with blogging, haha. So let's keep this going, right? I recently posted a haul post and I had mentioned that I picked up the Shine Control Powder and Foundation from Neutrogena. Well, I've had these for about three weeks now and have been using them pretty regularly, so it's review time, yes?

I would just like to say that I've only used two methods to apply this. I'm not a big fan of paddle style foundation brushes, so I didn't use one, plus I don't think this foundation would be that great with one. Using a wet sponge will usually get a decent effect, but I'm out of sponges. So, yeah, sorry. This will be the easiest foundation review to read, especially from me, haha.

L'Oréal Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream in "Light" REVIEW

04 September 2012

This is a going to be a review on a product that I imagine a lot of people are interested in. This is the L'Oréal Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream, which is the B.B. Cream that can be found in the actual makeup displays. I know that they've also come out w/ at least one other type, but that one is stocked w/ the rest of L'Oréal's skincare line, and not w/ the makeup.

I would like to preface this review by saying that, while I am interested in trying out Asian BB Creams, I have not had the opportunity to do so, so I cannot compare the two w/ experience. That being stated, I've read a ton of reviews and such, and it's the general consensus that the American BB Creams are nothing like the Asian ones. So, w/ the idea of "one step fits all makeup AND skincare", the American ones just aren't up to par.

So I will be reviewing this product like I would a foundation. NOT as a tinted moisturizer, because the Asian BB Creams are supposed to have pretty decent coverage and be your primer, foundation, and concealer, along w/ your skincare. I might compare the American brands to each other, but I'm not going to review these things on the basis of being a good BB Cream or not because I simply do not know.

Long bloody introduction aside, let's get this review on the road!

boscia Skincare Review

I actually kind of like doing those product battle posts. I know the first one is going to raise people's hackles but it happens. We don't all like the same things. I have another one planned, actually, between Benefit and Revlon (spoiler: Revlon wins, by a long-shot.) ANYWAY, this is a review post. About skincare, that I've been using for little over a month now, albeit on and off.

I should mention that I have oily/combo skin. It gets severely dry in random little spots, but, for the most part, is oily as hell. I do not have sensitive skin, nor do I have issues w/ acne. I got in a car accident eight years ago and the airbag left some rough, red patches along my jawline; I also have typical redness. I am sensitive to heat, so my face is often red, but the redness is usually my only skin issue. Sometimes it looks a bit textured and dull.

I'm not even sure if there is a crazy demand for boscia reviews, but whatever, let's get this started!
