Beauty Find - IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Primer

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Primer

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Primer is a product that you'll be reaching for every day this summer.  It's a multi-tasker that evens out skin with blur technology, while hydrating skin with hydroliged collagen, hyalureioinc acid, peptides and niacin.  It's a oil-free serum and creates a silky smooth base for perfect makeup application.

With just one pump, I got full coverage for my face, and it felt smooth and refreshed, and had a nice, matte finish. The texture of the primer is lightweight and silky. The area around my nose was smoothed out and my foundation glided along my skin easily.  It held my make up in place during the day, even on very hot humid days, and my t zone had very little shine.

Since IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Primer also has so many great skin care ingredients, it  doubles as a great oil-free moisturizer for those who want to go makeup-free or don't need much coverage.

If you're looking for a primer that will diminish large pores, keep skin matte, yet hydrated and make your makeup look great even during the hot, humid summer, this is the one to pick up! - RLB

Beauty Find - NARS Orgasm Oil-Infused Lip Tint

NARS Orgasm Oil-Infused Lip Tint 

The beloved NARS Orgasm line has expanded even further with the new NARS Orgasm Oil-Infused Lip Tint. 

NARS Orgasm Oil-Infused Lip Tint adds a sheer layer of the original rosey-golden Orgasm shade to lips, along with hydration and the perfect amount of dewy finish.  It contains Raspberry Seed Oil which nourishes and softens lips along with Pomegranate Extract to provide antioxidants and long-lasting hydration.

The texture is a dream!  It's a lightweight, gel-oil hybrid that went on smoothly and evenly with no greasy feel and no sticky texture.  I love that the finish gives my6 lips a natural glowy (not just shiny) look.  The soft pink shade works with every skin tone and lip color, and there's no glitter in it.

Since it's a gloss, it didn't last all day after a morning appliation, but I would say there was a light layer still left by early afternoon, and then I reapplied.  My lips felt soft and smooth all day, even in very dry, cold indoor environments.

NARS Orgasm Oil-Infused Lip Tint

If your lips are naturally pink, NARS Orgasm Oil-Infused Lip Tint will enhance that shade.  If your lips are darker/have more pigment, it will leave a flattering hint of color.  What I loved to do is use this over a light layer of brownish/rose lipstick and it instantly became is my perfect YLBB (your lips but better) shade.

NARS Orgasm Oil-Infused Lip Tint also pairs beatifully with the NARS Blush Orgasm and yes, even over the NARS Orgasm Afterglow Lip Balm. These products, along with a little concealer and mascara and I had the perfect day time or weekend casual beauty look.

If you're already a NARS Orgasm product collector, or want a sheer, moisturizing lip color to just enhance your lips/give a dewy natural look, NARS Orgasm Oil-Infused Lip Tint is a must have! - RLB

Drugstore Buy of the Week - Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion - SPF 50

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion - SPF 50
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion - SPF 50

If you have drier skin AND need a good full spectrum sunscreen that won't break the bank, Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion - SPF 50 is the one you want all summer long. It has a SPF 50 and UVA/UVB protection.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion - SPF 50 is a non greasy sunscreen that leaves no white or grey cast on skin (no matter how dark you are!) and at the same time provides skin with intense hydration.  

It's a gel formula that is lightweight and gives skin hydration for up to 8 hours. It has a light blue color out of the tube but goes on clean on the skin. The Sunscreen Lotion was very easy to apply, glided on my skin and absorbed within seconds with no streaking or patchiness.  Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion - SPF 50 didn't irritate my skin and the finish was a nice sheen that didn't look too shiny, but gave my skin a nice finish that looked moist and healthy in the sun.

Another great feature you'll love is the scent.  Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion doesn't have classic "sunscreen" chemical scent.  It's a light, clean, slightly citrus scent that I loved and dissipated within a few minutes.

Note: While I mostly used Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion on my body, which is dry, I did also test it on my face and really liked how smooth and plump it left my drier areas like my cheeks, without making my face look too oily.  It allowed me to apply makeup over it like tinted moisturizer and concealer without disturbing it as well.  If using Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion on the face I recommend using a very thin layer and adding more if needed.  A little goes a long way!

At 3 Fl oz's Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion - SPF 50 is also TSA friendly so you can pack them in in your carry on for it on all your summer adventures.  Stock up on these! - RLB
