Prescriptives Virtual Matte Oil-Control Makeup SPF 15

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

When you have oily skin, the oil tends to break down your makeup, and then over time it looks progressively more ridiculous. We tried Prescriptives Virtual Matte Oil-Control Makeup since Prescriptives has a reputation for being the go to brand for foundation. Unfortunately, Prescriptives is now only available online. So you might be thinking, well how would I get the right foundation? They have a shade finder online so you can select the right shade. However, we found this system to be flawed, particularly since the result is 3 shade recommendations. Your better bet is to do an online chat with one of the beauty experts who will only ask you a couple of questions. But our strategy was to not only give them a couple of celebrities that shared our skin color, but also go on our social media website and give them the image link to our pictures. By doing this we got the perfect shade in the mail! This makeup promises to not only reduce shine but also stop oil production over time. It actually does work! This is a thicker foundation that gives you medium to full coverage, so you natural gals probably won’t like it. The finish isn’t overly matte though, so at least you have a more natural look if not feel. The only drawback with this foundation is that it has salicylic acid, which can be irritating to those with sensitive skin when used on a daily basis. Virtual Matte Oil-Control Makeup costs $35 and shipping is free, but you also get free samples! We got a phenomenal two shade eyeliner and a generously trial sized day moisturizer, so the department store pricing didn’t have as much of a sting. This didn’t have the staying power as one of our favorite foundations, Estee Lauder Double Wear, but at the same time it wasn’t as drying. In sum, this is a great foundation but you need to do some extra work to make sure you select the correct shade.

Maybelline Volum’ Express the Falsies Mascara

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

We already tried Maybelline Volum’ Express the Colossal Mascara so we wanted to give their Falsies Mascara a try. With this product, you actually do get a dramatic, false eye-lash look. The brush is spoon shaped, which really makes a difference, and it also has fibers in it. Fibers are a main ingredient in many mascaras that truly lengthen your lashes. With the Falsies mascara, how you apply it really makes a difference. If you hold the brush spoon side against your lashes you won’t get any clumps. If you do it the other way you get clumps but it also gives more of a false lash effect. One coat of this mascara does the job, but if you want to do more than one definitely don’t let the mascara dry between coats.

Mustela Musti Eau de Soin Spray

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

There’s nothing better than a light, fresh fragrance when it’s hot outside. We tried Mustela’s Musti Eau de Soin Spray and loved the scent. It’s a great combination of fruit and floral notes, and is actually good for your skin. This is formulated to be used on babies and their linens and clothes so it’s hypoallergenic as well. It’s a very subtle scent, so if you’re comparing it to Loves Baby Soft it’s fainter. We recommend this for a unique baby shower gift or for people who complain that perfume is too ‘heavy’.

Sally Hansen Pure Scent-sation Hair Remover for Face

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

If you have unwanted facial hair, the best way to go is depilatories or waxing. Waxing can be painful and inaccurate while depilatories smell so unpleasant it’s hard to ignore. Sally Hansen’s Pure Scent-sation Hair Remover for Face is a depilatory but it’s said to be ‘virtually odor-free’. We tried it and thought that it was a great product. It’s not odor free, but we agree with the other 93% of women they surveyed who thought it was the freshest depilatory they ever used. This hair removal cream also has the perfect balance of gentleness and effectiveness. It doesn’t burn your skin but it doesn’t leave hair behind either. Pure Scent-sation Hair Remover doesn’t take all day, you only have to leave it on for 3 minutes (8 minutes max). We loved the little spatula it comes with (because who really wants depilatory on their hands?) and the pump that makes it so you control exactly what you put on the spatula. It keeps the formula fresh too. Overall, while this depilatory is not completely odor-free, it’s definitely the best smelling one out there.  Good news! If you want to try a Sally Hansen hair removal product they have a coupon for $2.00 online – http://sallyhansen.com/coupons

Gillette ProGlide Power Razor

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

Gillette’s ad campaign for their new ProGlide Power Razor caught our eye so we decided to give it a try. One male tester couldn’t believe how easy this was on his skin. This razor features thinner blades with a coating that makes them glide over skin. If you get razor bumps, it’s a must to have a razor that doesn’t tug and pull. Ladies, if you have very sensitive skin or are prone to irritation you may want to give this one a try. It’s extremely gentle – just keep in mind that since this is designed for delicate facial skin you won’t get as close of a shave.
