clean and restore dirty, sticky NARS packaging

dirty sticky nars packaging case

The chic NARS matted packaging is love at first, but in time, it becomes less desirable… With all the busyness of makeup applications, comes fingerprints, powders, and other debris that sticks onto these packagings. And cleaning them is not as easy as a simple wipe. As stickiness eventually takes over the once smooth matted makeup cases (especially in humid summer climate) to attract even more debris, the initial adoration of the famed matted packaging becomes an affliction to a #NARSissist. This problem isn’t exclusive to NARS packaging; same goes for any matted or rubberized packagings of whatever makeup products. [Read more…]

This is one of my most used toner of Summer 2016 that I reviewed HERE.
I’ve finished up and repurchased this toner several times, and it’s still one of my favorite! Think of this as a product that has all the benefits of SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion but with brightening booster. The texture actually feels gentler on the skin compared to the SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion, and it also helps to minimize skin dullness and evens out skin tone with consistent long term use.

Becca Rose Quartz Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Review

I’ve been a fan of Becca Shimmering Skin Perfectors for many years. I have Moonstone and Opal both in Liquid and Pressed, as well as couple of shades in Poured Creme, and some of these are my most used highlighters. I skipped on the highly raved Champagne Pop because it seem to lean slightly too gold for my liking.
 
But, when Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Rose Quartz was released, I knew without a doubt, that I had to have it. It’s a gorgeous soft light/pale pink with slightly warm undertone. My skin is very warm tone with slightly olive undertone, so warm tones do suit me better, however, I don’t like overly warm toned highlighters or blushers; that’s just my personal taste in shades rather than what “suits” me.
