The transition from fall to winter can be overwhelming for women. For instance, skin becomes drier, and everyday beauty products can become neglected. Here in this post, I will be talking about some products that will make it easier to maintain your skin in winter and still keep up with the fall trends. Some common products I researched will help to eliminate dry skin. Starting with the face, Complex 15 Face Moisturizer is a top seller at Drugstore.com for only $5.50. This is a great item to invest in simply because it cures that dry feeling skin gets in this season. Another important item to look into is the Neutrogena Hand Cream for $4.50, also from Drugstore.com. Curing winter skin in your hands is really important; I mean who wants to feel scaly? Neutrogena Hand Cream can help that.
I went to the mall and did the Sephora Color IQ thing and ended up buying the uber expensive Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Foundation. It really does make my skin look smooth, but it also left it looking ashy since it has a really matte finish. I also think the Color IQ machine scanner thingy matched me wrong. Watch my video to hear about the rest of my experience with the Sephora Color IQ.
Sephora tempted me with a $20 off $50 purchase coupon…and they won. Here is my haul. There is no possible way to save money during the holidays with all of these sales.
Here is what I purchased:
FCC: I paid for this makeup myself. This is an honest review.
Here is a really hard looking, but actually easy to do, glitter eye makeup tutorial from Beat Face Honey. She makes really good beauty tutorials on Youtube. This one is great because she doesn’t use that many eyeshadow colors and only a few glitter colors. She also breaks the steps down in an easy to comprehend way.
I really want to try Boscia’s Luminizing Black Mask. They sell it at Sephora, and it has had nothing but rave reviews from every magazine and website that I have read. I think this will be an excellent mask to de-stress with at the end of the day.What do you think?
This is what Sephora says:
This jet-black, mineral-rich mask creates a unique peel-off effect that delivers powerful detoxifying, purifying, and brightening results. Made with a premier-quality clay, its deep-cleansing properties draw out dirt and oil. Other natural ingredients go to work exfoliating skin and refining pores. Powerful antioxidants shrink pores, firm skin, and reduce inflammation. Once dried, the mask strips away dead skin, impurities and excess oil to reveal immediate and visible results.
