PHYSICIANS FORMULA BUTTER COLLECTION/ ULTA


Have you seen this beauty going around? This is the collection from physicians formula butter collection but its exclusive to ulta. and its different from the one that was exclusive to walmart.
The one from walmart was in a palette form and came with a bronzer, blush and two highlights and a fragrance.  This also comes in two different shade ranges.

This comes in individual containers and only comes in one shade range.  It contains a bronzer, blush, one highlight and a body butter that contains the same scent as the fragrance.







I love this set. The bronzer is a bit light but it really gives a bit of a glow.

Get this set here

NARS RADIANT LONGWEAR FOUNDATION/ WEAR TEST/ REQUESTED





















The above photo is at the end of the evening right before I took all my makeup  off. And I went walking outside at a fact pace.


 WHAT IT IS-A foundation with medium buildable coverage, up to 16 hours of lightweight, natural, fade-resistant wear, featuring full-powered radiance to smooth the look of skin.

WHAT IT DOES-NARS’ first 16-hour foundation has a lightweight, breathable, fade-resistant formula and features medium-to-full, buildable coverage in 33 skin-matching shades to fit all skin tones and undertones. The transfer-resistant, sweat-resistant formula stays color-true all day, and continues to look fresh and vibrant, as if it was just applied. This formula features superior blendability for an imperceptible effect that looks natural, like skin. It doesn’t look or feel cakey, heavy, drying, or masking. A unique combination of translucent base with micronized amino acid-coated pigments and mineral tone-balancing powders mimic skin’s tone, fusing with it for the closest match. NARS’ Skin Optimizing Complex—a blend of raspberry, apple, and watermelon extracts—helps support skin’s elastic fibers to smooth and improve skin’s appearance over time for optimal radiance. Use a pearl-size amount of product. The foundation is concentrated in pigments and blends easily. A little goes a very long way. When too much foundation is used, the Skin Recognition Pigments—which act like magnets for long-wear benefits—may get stuck on dry patches or rough skin surface. It is therefore recommended to use an exfoliator to smooth skin's surface before applying. First apply foundation with fingertips, then buff in with a sponge if needed.

This product is also oil-free, fragrance-free, non-drying, dermatologist-tested, and noncomedogenic.

WHAT I LIKE- I love how this wore all day I long. It looked very natural.  I went for a walk with temps in the 80's and my makeup still looked good. 

WHAT I DIDN'T- Two things that I didn't like was first the process tag that comes with this. I honestly wouldn't pay for this. The other thing is really not that big of a deal and it's that a little of those really does go a long way. I didn't get it blended into my skin.
Overall I love this product but don't like the price that it is.
Have you gotten this or are you??

DO YOU WANT TO CHANGE THE WORLD



Its the summertime and what do you do when you go to the beach or pool to lay out. Well you can take a book to read!!
So here a book to take with you.
THE MILLENNIALS GUIDE TO CHANGING THE WORLD.
Alison Lea Sher  packed  herself up in an RV and embarks on a road trip in hopes of starting a conversation about what it means to grow up in America, post-Great Recession. Interviewing 150 of her millennial peers as they begin their adult lives―from kids heading straight to Wall Street after college to those sleeping on it―Sher asks: “Who are you; what should you do; and how can you step into your destiny as a stakeholder in society?”



The Millennial’s Guide to Changing the World is a one-of-a-kind ethnographic study on the spotlighted millennial generation, as told by millennials―the largest generation in US history that is now transitioning from adolescence to adulthood. As millennials embark on a young adult quest during a frightening time, how can they enlist the idealism, values, and resistance politics they are so well-known for to discover a sense of self and purpose? Learn how to:






  • “Adult”―and not in the way society defines it






  • Ride the technology revolution, instead of letting it ride you






  • Be ethical, inclusive, and sex-positive in your relationships






  • Resist the corporate oligarchy we live in






  • Recognize privilege, embrace diversity, and fight for equality






  • Save the earth, literally

  •  With intimate stories, ethnographic research, and practical tips, The Millennial’s Guide to Changing the World will inspire every young person, showing them how to optimize their coming-of-age potential in a world that desperately needs it.

    This needs to be your next read so head over and order this book and learn more about how you can change the world.

    MAKE UP FOR EVER SKIN TINT REVIEW AND WEAR TEST








    The above and below photo is right after applying the skin tint.






     



    The below photo is at least 7 hours later. Still looks good.





    WHAT IT IS--A revolutionary skin tint that blurs and enhances the look of skin for a perfected complexion


    WHAT IT DOES--This innovative, weightless formula creates a blurring effect that enhances and perfects the look of skin. Whether you’re new to foundation or an enthusiast seeking a fresh alternative, this sheer-to-medium coverage tint flatters every face. Long-lasting hydration combined with SPF 25, keep skin feeling supple and protected. Ultra HD Perfector breaks all of the limits we’ve come to expect from foundations with a texture that’s effortless to apply with your fingertips, a nurturing formula, and a long-lasting natural finish. This is your most natural, perfected skin, on demand.

    Ultra HD Perfector is available in 10 shades, with each individual shade spanning uniquely across multiple skin tones.

    WHAT I LIKE-I love that it did blur my skin. It lasted all day didn't budge. I loved the look of my skin. It also didn't get cakey or creasy at all. I went and did errands all day and it was hot at times and yet this still looked just as good when i took it off at night as it did in the morning.


    WHAT  I DIDN'T LIKE-- Honestly there is really not a thing that i would say that i didn't like other than the price. But if a product is going to work then sometimes, it is worth the price. I would totally consider buying the full size product.

    PRICE--$36
