A few weekends back, I went to Sephora with my best friend. We were like two kids in a candy store; every display hinted at a promise for the perfect lips, unbelievable lashes, or a flawless complexion. This is nothing new to hard core beauties – I’m probably describing the feeling you get every time you visit a beauty store. For us this was a little outside the norm.
I would not describe myself as a beauty lover, but I’ve been really enjoying a few things from my Sephora haul.
- Bite Beauty Butter Cream Lipstick (Moka)– This brand uses natural and organic ingredients to provide your lips with the perfect pout. The Butter Cream collection is hand cut to allow for the fullest moisture. I normally wear a gloss on the top of my lipstick, but with this one I don’t have to. The texture achieves it’s namesake with a smooth creamy finish.
- Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector – This primer has an oil-control base that is suppose to minimize pores and mattify skin for up to 12 hrs. It can be worn under or on top of your makeup. I wore this primer under my makeup but it only kept me matte for 2-3 hrs. I hope re-applying this product on top of my makeup as a touch up will increase the longevity. I have tried the infamous Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer, but it only made me more oily.
- Kat Von D Tattoo Liner– One word, A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I have never found an eyeliner that stays on all day. I have extremely oily skin and most makeup slides off within hours, but this stayed on the entire day when pairing it with Smashbox 24 Hour Shadow Primer. I am 100% sold and will not buy anything else. Now, it’s time to practice my cat eye!
Any suggestions on a good primer for oily skin?
