Beauty Find - Huda Beauty The Overachiever High Coverage Concealer



HUDA BEAUTY The Overachiever High Coverage Concealer 


In 2018 I fell in love with at least 3 great full coverage concealers, and wasn't really looking for another until I stumbled on to HUDA BEAUTY The Overachiever High Coverage Concealer .





The Overachiever High Coverage Concealer
HUDA BEAUTY The Overachiever High Coverage Concealer now has one a place in my heart - and my makeup collection, because it's such an amazing formula and lasts ALL DAY.

What makes The Overachiever High Coverage Concealer such a great product is that there is so much pigment, but it's also a smooth, creamy and lightweight formula.  This is the perfect High Coverage Concealer for those of you with dark circles, redness, hyper pigmentation, age spots and other discolorations.  The finish is a natural (not dry looking) slightly luminous matte.



HUDA BEAUTY The Overachiever High Coverage Concealer  is a long wear, water and smudge resistant formula that also hydrates the eye area, so there's no creasing, flaking.or dry feeling by days end.

Butterscotch  was my perfect match (the color and undertone range of the concealers is excellent) and worked well for both spot concealing and under eye concealing.  I loved how smoothly it applied, melted into my skin seamlessly and then set.  I got good results using the HUDA BEAUTY Conceal & Blend Dual Ended Complexion Brush and the beautyblender beautyblender micro. mini.  Just a small dot was needed to cover the under eye area and instantly give me a full coverage look.

During the day, whether I was in a dry air office environment or outside in warmer weather, HUDA BEAUTY The Overachiever High Coverage Concealer  stayed on without fading, smearing or the color changing.  I loved the natural matte finish which worked with all my foundations, and I also appreciated the slightly light enhancing effect it gave my under eye area to look fresher and brighter.

HUDA BEAUTY The Overachiever High Coverage Concealer is now another must have for my makeup bag and every makeup artist that has clients with varying skin tones needs several shades in their kit. - RLB

Body Care Find - Paula's Choice RESIST Weightless Body Treatment 2% BHA





With Fall weather fully in swing, the most important thing to remember is to continue to keep up body care - even if we're more covered up!

I heard about Paula's Choice RESIST Weightless Body Treatment 2% BHA recently and love it so much it's a permanent part of my body care routine now.




Paula's Choice RESIST Weightless Body Treatment 2% BHA is an effective exfoliator and hydrator with 2% salicylic acid to softens and refines rough skin, as well as antioxidants for healthy skin.  This lotion is perfect for those who love a silky, lightweight lotion that absorbs quickly and improves the overall appearance of skin.  With 2% BHA  it also works to effectively remove clogged pores on arms and legs, bumps on elbows, rough skin patches on knees, elbows and other areas, "bacne" (and butt-ne), razor bumps/ingrown hairs, and clearing old acne scars.



If you have normal to oily body skin, Paula's Choice RESIST Weightless Body Treatment 2% BHA, will be the perfect weight to moisturize without adding any oily or greasy layer.  But have very dry skin, with bumps and some of the other issues I mention above, I recommend alternating this lotion with a heavier one several days a week, or just using it on the affected areas like elbows and knees, and applying your heavy duty lotion to the rest of your body.  


After using Paula's Choice RESIST Weightless Body Treatment 2% BHA, for over 4 weeks at least 3-4 times a week, my skin on elbows and knees was smoother and softer, and it also lightened and  cleared out up some small discolorations I had from summer bug bites/razor bumps.  

Paula's Choice RESIST Weightless Body Treatment 2% BHA, is not a heavily scented product, but it does have a fleeting, fresh, slight acidic fragrance that disappeared within a minute or so, and didn't interfere with any other fragrance I applied over it.  Paula's Choice RESIST Weightless Body Treatment 2% BHA,7 oz Tube Gentle Body Exfoliator with Salicylic Acid and Antioxidants is a great multi-tasking product that produces results! - RLB

Note: Please read the product description and directions carefully.  Because of the BHAs, It is not  recommend you to use Paula's Choice RESIST Weightless Body Treatment  on your exposed skin during daytime unless you wear SPF 25+ sunscreen over it.

Beauty Find - CHARLOTTE TILBURY Hollywood Flawless Filter



Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter 7 Dark 

I wasn't really sure I would use Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter often enough to justify the cost, but after using it one day - I  was hooked.

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter is a 3-in-1 skin product which can be used as a primer, highlighter and foundation booster for when you want a glowy (not shiny!) finish.  It gave me the perfect dewy finish/ or glow, depending on how much I used and in what way.  Even better, it has  light reflecting particles which give a soft focus effect to make lines, pores and discolorations look less prominent.



I used Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter 7 Dark which was a good match (and this is the darkest shade currently).  However it will work for a variety of brown skin tones, since it's not meant to match skin like a foundation.  There are 7 shades in the line.

I loved how sheer and lightweight Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter 7 Dark felt on my skin.  When I used it as a primer or just over bare skin, it gave me a beautiful glowy finish, which didn't make my t zone look overly oily.  It looked natural because it was a light wash of highlighting but there was no glitter or large pieces of shimmer in in the liquid.

I would also use Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter mixed with a lightweight moisturizer on days when I was drier, or knew I would be traveling and in dry air conditions.  

Used this way It kept my skin looking hydrated and healthy with that beautiful glow.






Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter 7 Dark can also be used as a traditional liquid creme highlighter, and I liked using it on the high points of my cheekbones, brow bones, tip of nose and center of forehead after applying a natural/satin finish foundation.



Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter  was easy to blend and I found a little went a long way.  I applied it using either the end of the sponge applicator or a small beauty blender.


I love how  Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter  instantly made my skin look better - whether I used foundation or not.  On days when I wanted a natural look, I would just apply  Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter , then do some spot concealing, mascara and tinted lip balm and felt like a had a natural, polished look with beautiful skin.   Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter  is well worth adding to your makeup collection.  - RLB
