I know it may seem like brown girls don’t need bronzer, but I am here to tell you that we do! I’m using “need” loosely, but I personally feel like bronzers really help complete any look. If you wear foundation (especially medium to full coverage), bronzers help add that dimension and warmth back to your face so that it doesn’t look like you are wearing a mask. If you want to the bronzers that have been in heavy rotation for the past few months, keep reading!
Foundation is one of my number 1 makeup loves! I love trying different ones and because of that, I have found quite a few that I’m fond of. Sometimes it can be a little tricky to figure out what foundation will hold up in the hot weather and manage to still feel good on the skin. Check out my top foundation picks for the summer! For reference, my skin is pretty normal these days with most of my oil being in my t-zone.
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 love trying new foundations and letting you all know about them! Today, the foundation that I reviewed is the new MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation in the shade NC45. I really wanted to try this one out because it claimed to be lightweight, long wearing, and waterproof. If you would like to see how it lived up to those claims, check out the video below!
Would you like me to do some sort of foundation round-up where I talk about my foundation collection? If so, leave me a comment as to how you would like to see that done!
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!

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!
Maybelline recently released a new BB Cream called the Dream Pure BB. Apparently this product has been out for awhile in other countries, but it is just now making its way to the United States. This BB Cream is supposed to be different from others on the market because it contains an acne fighting medicine, 2% salicylic acid. I have combination skin, but I usually go for things targeted for dry skin because my dry is worse than my oily. For this product, I stepped outside of the box to see how it would work out. I tried it out in the Deep shade. Check out my first impression below!
