bareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 REVIEW

20 December 2014

So, initially this post was supposed to be a first impressions post. But because I'm so bad at blogging lately, I've actually used this product long enough to do a full review on it! Oh man...Anyway, this product has a SUPER LONG name, so instead of always typing Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 every time, we're just going to stick with "BB primer"! This came out a while back (as usual I am tardy to the party) and I had wanted it then but I have a lot of primers. Recently I just used up a couple and finally took the plunge (I've been on a bareMinerals kick lately) and finally purchased it. I also picked up the Bare Skin foundation, the brush that accompanies the Bare Skin, and the Ready Touch Up Veil along with this primer, but those are separate posts! The foundation used in these blog photos will be the Bare Skin foundation.

This product retails for $26 (I work at Ulta, so I purchased mine for a bit less) and it should be available at any BM retailer (Ulta, Sephora, etc) as well as online. When it was originally released, it came in two shade options but now there are four (Fair, Light, Medium, and Tan) and I have the Light. It contains 1 fl. oz. of product (30 mL), which is a standard size for a face primer. It comes in the same type of pump packaging that the original Prime Time comes in, but I wish that it came in a squeeze tube!

L’Oréal Infallible® Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray REVIEW

11 December 2014

Let's talk about a most exciting release! I'm sure everyone has heard of the UD All Nighter setting spray by now, and certainly the Skindinavia sprays! But here's a setting spray from the drugstore that is actually effective! From the Infallible line by L’Oréal, this spray contains 3.4 oz and retails for $16.99, but if you live in the midwest near a Meijer, I found mine at Meijer for $13.99 AND on a BOGO50% sale! Definitely check places like grocery stores such as Meijer or Walmart instead of Walgreens or CVS because you will probably find it for a bit cheaper! Also, this is a fairly new release, which means the price will probably drop as the product is out on the shelves for longer.

e.l.f. Cosmetics makes a Studio product called Mist and Set, and if this product works for you, that's AWESOME because this particular spray is only $3 and you can frequently get e.l.f. products for 50% off! Unfortunately, this spray doesn't prolong the wear of my makeup, plus it contains parabens (Methylparaben,Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Isobutylparaben, and Butylparaben, to be exact) so this isn't an option for me.

I'm hoping that, as this product is out on the shelves longer, they begin to bring out different formulations of this setting spray because, REVIEW SPOILER, I am in love with this product! BUT I have dry, flaky skin in the winter and insanely greasy and sweaty skin in the summer months and the All Nighter doesn't work so hot for me during that period so I'm not positive as to how well this spray will fare in those conditions. I HAVE worn it during hot and sweaty truck unloading shifts and it has held up beautifully during those, so fingers crossed. I would love if they came out with an oil control formula though!

NEW AT THE DRUGSTORE - Maybelline Edition

08 December 2014

So, I'm not even going to try to give some kind of lame ass sob story. Basically, I've been a terrible blogger, but I just bought a Macbook Pro AND a new DSLR so I'm planning on coming back with a vengeance. ANYWAY, have a new at the drugstore type of post! I knew about the new lipsticks from Maybelline, but I had NO CLUE about these products! Also found but not featured are several new shades of the Brow Drama brow gel, including a transparent shade, but I didn't pick any of those up. I purchased all of these things from my local Meijer, and I found them on an endcap display!

Note: this is not a review, this is basically a haul post. I haven't put any of these on my face yet!
