The temperatures have really cooled down now that fall has officially arrived. I’m so glad about that, because I can start wearing more make-up now that I don’t have to worry about the sun making my face feel like a tanned oil slick of foundation and eyeliner. I mean, it was just too hot this summer to wear much makeup, including foundation. So, to eliminate the need for foundation, I stepped up my skincare game, paid attention to what I ate, and played around with just wearing concealers and correctors for problematic areas. In the process, I realized that there are a lot of affordably cheap concealers and correctors out there that do an amazing job.
I’m in the middle of declutter some spaces in my home, including my make-up area, which has gotten overwhelming. During the process, I decided to throw away all the foundations I haven’t and don’t plan to ever use again. Unfortunately, that only left me with an almost empty bottle of a foundation that is beginning to look a little too dark on me, because my summer tan is slowly leaving me. Therefore, I did decide to take this time to revisit a foundation from my past that I used and loved, but hadn’t used in years. I decided to revisit Revlon’s Colorstay Foundation in Combination/Oily, because you know, I have oily skin. After using this foundation for a couple of weeks now, I’ve noticed a couple of new things compared to when I originally used this as my everyday foundation years ago and decided to share. Gather around!
As a person with oily skin, I know firsthand how tedious and tricky it can be to find and try the right products to use, especially make-up. Over the past decade (or two), I’ve tried numerous skincare and make-up products that are formulated for oily skin. Some of the oily skin make-up products that I’ve tried have been major busts while some have been beyond amazing.
When you have oily skin, you should look for make-up that is formulated to give you a oil-free and matte look. So, I decided to list the products that I think would help those with oily skin create a flawless and shine-free make-up routine. These products are some of my all-time favorites and a couple of them are products I will probably use for the rest of my life.
After being wiped off of US drugstore make-up shelves 6 years ago, Max Factor cosmetics is making it’s return the American market with a small selection of items, including their Masterpiece Max mascara and Masterpiece Precision Liquid Eyeliner.
I recently recollected on all the make-up and beauty products I’ve bought and used over my beauty blogging career (10+ years) and realized that I’ve probably used hundreds of different products, but feel like I can only recall a few. Sad, I know. However, what stirred up this pondering of my past was the recent resurgence in the beauty world of Coty’s Airspun Powder a.k. the face powder we’ve all seen in the drugstores, but never bought.
