Review: Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation

27 Jul

A lasting creme foundation does it really last?

Review: I like the consistency of this foundation something between a solid creme and liquid foundation like lotion. Now this foundation states that it is long-lasting and since my skin is oily it could cause me to look like a oil slick at the end of the day. And well my face does end up like an oil slick if I didn’t use powder to set the foundation but the foundation does last for 12+ hours. Plus for those days where I am going everywhere my face to look fresh at the end of it. So this foundation does last long, coverage is medium and it has a really nice smell. There is a good shade selection but it could be difficult to decide because the foundation in the tube looks darker then when it is blended out on the skin.

Cost: $8.99CDN

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this product for those looking for a long lasting foundation but be careful about selecting a shade.

Review: Physician’s Formula Organic Wear Loose Powder

4 Mar

Wow… long title. Anyways… photo!

Review: Physicians Formula has developed a line of organic makeup for those who are scared or allergic to all the chemicals put in any other makeup product. My first loose powder that I purchased… I have to say when I first used it I wasn’t a happy person. First off the smell that greets you when you use this all-over your face is… how to describe it earthy? It was a really bark-like smell that really stood out. It comes in a variety of shades which is great for those who uses powder foundation but I also think that they should develop a translucent version or have a more broad-band color range (doesn’t give us Asians much to work with). The texture is quite finely milled and really doesn’t feel like you are putting powder on your face which is a nice bonus. Other than the smell of the product which you’ll get used to as it takes a while to get through one of these suckers it is a pretty good setting powder.  

Cost: $19.99CDN

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this product for people who want to be eco-friendly or don’t particularly care about product smells.
