Sisley Paris monthly beauty subscription — A journey of beauty discovery

This is an age where subscription services thrive and die at the same time. There are all kinds of subscription boxes covering a wide range of our everyday life including but not limited to beauty, food, snacks, books, gadgets. You name it, they have it.

L’Oreal Studio Secrets Anti-Redness Color Correcting Primer (UPDATE)

Alt Tag Loreal Paris

(3/7/2015):  This primer seems to blend much better if you use your fingers.  The warmth of your hands really helps the green disappear more easily than using a brush or beauty blender if your skin is dry like mine.

This is the best green color corrector I have ever used.  I have dry skin that dehydrates easily and also flakes a lot so I have to use a scrub almost every day in the winter (St. Eves apricot scrub w/ acne prevention).  My skin is also very sensitive and few drug store brands that have anything to do with covering up don’t cause breakouts.  After I apply my morning moisturizer (Olay 7 in 1) I mix in more moisturizer into the color corrector on the back of my hand and apply it to the center of my face, middle of my forehead, and my chin.  I use it sparingly at first and then build it up as needed.  I use my Real Techniques buffing brush to blend it in and there are a lot of days when I won’t even need my tinted moisturizer.  I have a bit of rosacea on my cheeks so with the color corrector I often don’t need blush, just some highlighting on the tops of my cheekbones.  (the 7 in 1 bottle I’m using now has SPF in it but the other two bottles I have don’t, so I’ll have to use my tinted moisturizer). I build up the color corrector on days when I want to use blush, bronzer or contour.
