This year MAC Cosmetics collaborated with a number of well-known makeup artists and featured a new line of makeup products under each artist. I was privileged to receive a number of new MAC products to review by James Kaliardos’s and the Kabuki Magic collection.
Finally, a skin care routine tailored for me. I have been using the new Idealia skincare by Vichy line for a week now, and it’s too amazing not to share. Sometimes I feel ridiculous using age defying products, maybe it’s because I am blessed with healthy skin, or maybe because I am in denial of my age (33 isn’t old, is it?). Regardless, I don’t want to use old lady cream just yet. I appreciate that most lines have a “protect skin now, enjoy it later” attitude, but it makes me feel old to think that wrinkles are in my not-so-distant future.
Makeup remover is a personal thing. Some like it milky, some like it creamy, some like it oily, some don’t clean their makeup off before going to bed…you catch my drift. Disclaimer: I am guilty of the latter from time to time. I know, it’s gross, but I’m lazy.
I received Biotherm Blue Therapy cream-in-oil face moisturizer a few months ago and have been using it sporadically, between the other products that I am testing. I need time to play with products before I can really review them. I know you would expect nothing less from this biochemistry student!
First, I didn’t realize that this was such a luxurious creme, only because I assumed I wasn’t fancy enough to receive it for free! Lesson learned – stop assuming! It retails at $79.
