Cover Girl Clean Oil Control Foundation Review

Posted by on Mar 31, 2014 in Question of the Week, Reviews | 0 comments

 

Good morning Loves!

This is the first time I tried a foundation by CG and have many positive points to mention, except for one.

PhotoGrid_2014-03-26_20_37_26

First I’d like to start by saying that I have oily skin and this didn’t make me greasy and it help up for about 7 hours before I needed to do some touch ups.

It lasted all day on me without fading away and it blended easily on my skin as well.

This foundation gives you light to medium coverage, but it’s more towards the lighter side, even though it’s buildable.  I don’t like to build it up because it makes it for a more natural look, which is good for the summer time.

I never really got used to bb creams as I am a “full coverage kind of girl”, so I find this foundation is not as light as a bb cream, but not as heavy as a full coverage. It’s somewhere in between.

The ONLY negative thing I must mention is that I have a VERY HARD TIME getting the foundation out of the bottle and a pump would GREATLY improve my overall experience and fondness of it.

I’m color 510 Classic Ivory.

It cost $5.99 at Target and you can find it at different drugstores. (Prices may vary).

Lots of Love…………Polly

Question of the week: Do you ever leave the house without makeup???

Well, for a couple of years now I have not been able to leave my house with absolutely NO makeup (unless I am going to the beach).

Now, what is your definition of “NO MAKEUP”? Well, to me, it’s when I leave my house wearing just foundation and blush (which is what I CANNOT live without).  In other words, when I’m wearing nothing other than foundation and blush, like it happens often in my morning rush, I feel naked, as if I was not wearing anything at all.

After all, we need to do what we’re comfortable and confident with, whether it’s with or without any makeup.

I’d love to know what you think and whether or not you can leave your house without any makeup.

Lots of Love…………..Polly

Spring/ Summer Makeup Tutorial: Neutral with a Hint of Color

Posted by on Mar 28, 2014 in Videos | 2 comments

Hi Loves!

Here is my suggestion for a spring/ summer look that I find very light and versatile.  You can easily change the green to any other color of your choice (and give it your own touch) in case you don’t like the one I used.

I hope you enjoy it!

Lots of Love……..Polly

Oi Amores!!

Essa é a minha sugestão de um make para a primavera/ verão que considero bem leve e versátil.  Você pode facilmente trocar a cor verde por uma cor de sua preferência (e dar o seu toque especial) caso não goste da verde.

Espero que gostem!

(Caso gostem, por favor se inscrevam no meu canal do Youtube! Obrigada!!)

Milani’s Nude Eyeshadow Primer

Posted by on Mar 26, 2014 in Beauty Bargains, Reviews | 0 comments

 

Hi Loves!

I am happy to announce that I have found a much cheaper alternative to UD’s eye primer.

Milani’s eye primer reminds me a lot of Urban Decay’s eye primer in texture and performance.

The first time I used it, I went to work and to the gym after and twelve hours later, my eyeshadow was still INTACT!!! Yes, believe it or not!

This eye primer does a very good job keeping the eyeshadow from creasing, however, it didn’t blend as well or as smoothly as the one by UD. But for such a good price I think it’s worth to make it an everyday primer and leave the more expensive one for the weekends or special occasions.

This eye primer is a good and affordable alternative to UD’s eye primer and I super recommend it!

**** It cost $6.79 at CVS. (Prices may vary at different drugstores)

Lots of Love…………….Polly

Kat Von D. Palette Makeup Tutorial (English and Portuguese)

Posted by on Mar 21, 2014 in Videos | 2 comments

Hi Loves!!

Here is this week’s makeup tutorial for you! I used this beautiful palette called “Spellbinding Eyeshadow Palette”, by Kat Von D. that I borrowed from my friend Thayna from “On The Path To Beauty”.  None of my purple eyeshadows were as pretty as this one!

I  would use this makeup at night.

Just remember that you CAN learn how to do your own makeup, you just have to practice, practice, practice.  There’s no secret.

If I can, so can you!!!

I hope you enjoy it!

Lots of Love……Polly

Oi Amores!!

Aqui está o tutorial dessa semana para vocês!  Usei essa paleta linda da Kat Von D. chamada “Spellbinding Eyeshadow Palette” que peguei emprestada com a minha amiga Thayná, do blog “On The Path To Beauty”.  Nenunha das minhas sombras roxas eram tão lindas como a dessa paleta… :)  Obrigada, Thay!

Usaria esse make a noite para balada, por exemplo.

E lembre-se que você também PODE aprender a maquiar-se sozinha, é só um questão de prática, prática, prática.

Não tem segredo.

Se eu posso, você também pode!!!

Espero que gostem!

Lots of Love………Bjo bjo……..Polly
