A little about me and make-up… when something works well for me, I am a loyal customer. I will continue to buy that product for years. The only reason I would switch is when it wasn’t as good as I thought it was, they ran out of the product in the store (I’m impatient) and when I try something in my beauty subscription boxes that I loved. So I’ve been using It Cosmetics Airbrush Perfecting Powder with their CC+ Cream and after a couple months, I noticed that it was making my face look dry! It just wasn’t blending well. It’s like I put baby powder on my face 🙁 I really wanted to like it since I’m a fan (still am) of their CC+ Cream. I actually went into Ulta to buy more of it and saw that they just released their Airbrush Perfecting Powder so I decided to give it a shot. At first, they were the perfect combo! Then after awhile, it wasn’t working well and definitely didn’t give me an air brushed look haha.
Any way, so I went to Sephora to stock up on my faves and thought I would try a new powder. I used to use Make-Up Forever but they were out of the shade I use so I asked someone that worked there what are some of their popular powders. She told me that the Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Foundation Powder is one of their bestsellers so I thought why not?! …the rest is history. I’m obsessed! It is pricier but so worth it, plus it lasts awhile. I don’t need to wear anything with it either. The It Cosmetics powder did not look good alone so I always had to wear it with their CC+ cream and with the Laura Mercier one, I don’t need the CC+ cream so it saves me time! YAASSS! This isn’t sponsored either, I highly recommend it!
I also found my new fave concealer! I’ve been using Maybelline’s Fit Me concealer for a couple years until I received the Smashbox Studio Skin 24 Hour Waterproof concealer in one of my Boxycharms and OMG, it’s ahhhhmazing! I’ve used a ton of different brands/types of concealers in my make-up lifetime and this is by far, THEE BEST. You’re welcome!
