Lancome recently released a foundation in a unique type of packaging. The new Lancome Miracle Cushion Foundation is a liquid foundation that comes in a compact. There is a sponge like material (or cushion) that is basically holding the liquid in place. This foundation is supposed to be lightweight, hydrating, and brightening. It also has the benefit of being very portable due to it being in a compact. I decided to give this product a try in the shade 450 Suede N. Check out the video below to see how it fared!

Is the Lancome Miracle Cushion Foundation something you would be interested in trying?

I’m finally back with another beauty post! If you have followed my blog for awhile, I’m sure you know that foundation is one of my favorite makeup items to test out. The Dior Diorskin Nude Air Serum Foundation* was recently released and it caught my eye so I decided to try it out for you. So far, the only Dior foundation that I’ve tried is the Dior Diorskin Nude Foundation, and that is one of my very favorite foundations so I figured that this one would probably work well for me too. I picked up this foundation in the same shade, 050 Dark Beige. Keep reading if you would like to see what I thought as a first impression on this foundation!

NARS recently released a new foundation, the All Day Luminous Weightless foundation. I decided to try it in the shade Cadiz, which is also my shade in the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. With this foundation, NARS promises full & natural looking coverage that lasts up to 16 hours. Not only that, but they also claim that the foundation will do this with only 1 drop and still have a lightweight feel on the skin. I’ve been testing this foundation out for about 2 weeks and I am ready to share my thoughts with you so if you’re interested, keep reading.

Sephora Teint Infusion Foundation First Impression

 

Sephora recently released a new foundation, the Teint Infusion Foundation. As soon as I saw it, I knew that it was supposed to be similar to the recent liquid to powder foundations that a few high end brands have been releasing lately (i.e. YSL Fusion Ink, Lancome Nude Miracle, etc.). The one that I have tried and liked as been the Lancome Nude Miracle Foundation so I wanted to see how this new Sephora foundation measured up. If you’re interested in hearing my thoughts, watch the video below!

Have you tried any of the new liquid to powder, barely-there foundations? If so, what is your favorite?

Buff Her House of Exfoliation Milk & Honey Review

*press sample, see full disclosure HERE

Facial exfoliating products are one of those items in my skin care routine that I change up on a pretty regular basis. I’m always on the hunt for the perfect one. Some tend to be too harsh, while others seem like they don’t do anything for my skin. For that reason (plus the super cute packaging), when Buff Her House of Exfoliation contacted me about trying out one of their products, I jumped at the opportunity. Buff Her specializes in exfoliators made from naturally, organically grown, fruits and vegetables. The one that I was sent, Milk & Honey only has 5 ingredients [Whole Dry (Milk) Powder, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Powder, (Honey) Maltodextrin, Honey Powder]! Although I was sent this product for review, I hope you all know that I always give my honest opinion! Check out my disclosure for more information. If you would like to find out my thoughts on the Milk & Honey Exfoliator, keep reading!
