Armani Maestro Fusion Makeup

eraseAfter seeing Armani Maestro Fusion Makeup profiled in Allure Magazine as a truly innovative product, we decided to give it a try. This foundation is different since it’s water and powder-free, and uses an oil-pigment suspension that perfects the complexion. The result? A highly thin film that corrects imperfections without buildup. When we used the product we couldn’t believe how wonderful the finish was. It doesn’t go on heavy and perfects your complexion, but it doesn’t actually look like you have makeup on.  We assumed from the product description that this would be a full coverage foundation, but after using it discovered it was more so medium coverage. At $62 Armani Maestro Fusion Makeup is not cheap but we appreciated the technology behind it enough to justify the price. In the end, we loved the way this made our skin look but don’t think it’s good for those looking for heavy coverage or oil-control.

St. Ives Natural Soothing Body Lotion

eraseIf you have very sensitive skin, you’ve probably already discovered that oatmeal is a great soothing ingredient. We tried St. Ive’s Natural Soothing Body Lotion since not only does it contain oatmeal, it also has shea butter (a must for dry skin). This is probably one of the richest lotions available on the market. If you prefer thicker creams or body butter, this may still be worth a try. We really liked this formula – the lotion moisturized well and it didn’t irritate at all. The scent is fairly unisex. Although this lotion doesn’t have a nice perfume-like fragrance as other lotions that are more so marketed to women, we recognize that this is probably what also makes it so perfect for sensitive skin.

Tip: If you have very sensitive skin, try also buying detergent and fabric softener formulated for sensitive skin. With so much contact with your skin, clothes can also be a source of irritation.

Neutrogena Shine Control Primer

erase3Having a healthy ‘glow’ is in but greasy skin is not. Oily skin can dissipate makeup and even alter its color. If your skin type is combination or oily, you may want to try Neutrogena’s Shine Control Primer, which promises to control shine for 8 hours. How does it work? Patent pending protein technology absorbs excess oil, so you can use this product every day without over-drying. Since it also has optical modifiers, it minimizes the look of pores. We tried this product and loved it! If you don’t like to wear makeup you’ll like this product because it stops shine and improves the appearance of your complexion. True to its promise, Neutrogena Shine Control Primer does control oil for 8 hours. However, we wish it would last for 12 hours so the shine free effect would last even after work (after 8 hours you’ll need to bring out the oil blotters). This product is especially useful since it will make any foundation last longer and conceal more. Those with combination skin will really appreciate that it mattifies without over drying.

CoverGirl Liquiline Blast

erase2If you’re not that skilled with eyeliner, you’ll like CoverGirl’s Liquiline Blast Eyeliner. It has the intensity of a liquid liner (which can be difficult to use), and it has a smudger on one end which makes it easy to correct crooked lines. We especially liked how dark the eyeliner went on – some pencils can be very waxy and don’t leave enough pigment behind. You can do both subtle and dramatic looks with this eyeliner.

Tip: For an expertly blended smokey eye, try putting the eyeliner on first, then put on gunmetal gray eyeshadow on top.

Blavia Skincare – Contour Collection

erase3Recently, we tried the Blavia Contour Collection from the new brand Blavia Skincare. The premise behind this collection is to prevent skin aging – not just treat it. Even better, this line is for the body, which is unique since most anti-aging lines are for the face. The Contour Collection has Marine Collagen, Vitamins A, B, C, and E, and antioxidants from Green Tea and Grape Seed extracts.  This collection is called Contour as it boosts natural collagen production and strengthens the skins natural barrier, providing a healthier contour.

Contour Shower Gel: Like the other products in the Contour Collection, this gel has a light, fresh fragrance. It’s clean-rinsing and lathers very well.

Contour Scrub: If you want your moisturizer to work well, you need to get rid of dead skin cells. This scrub is for the entire body, but it’s very gentle. The exfoliating particles are mild enough where you could use it every day. This is especially great for people whose skin can’t tolerate harsh exfoliants.

Contour Moisturizer: This is a lightweight moisturizer that you will love if greasy lotions tend to bother you. We think that this moisturizer will especially be in demand during the summer, when thick lotions aren’t as necessary. However, if you have extremely dry skin this lotion may not be heavy enough for you.

After using all three products together we found that our skin felt a lot softer and healthier overall. It’s hard to tell if a product is preventing aging or not, but there have been many studies that show that antioxidants are key in preventing environmental and sun damage (the biggest contributors to aging skin).
