Question of the Week: Makeup at the beach, yay or nay?

Posted by on Mar 19, 2014 in Question of the Week | 2 comments

 

Good morning, Loves!

Over the years I have seem some women wearing a considerable amount of makeup at the beach, which always made me “nervous” as I was always afraid of it melting always and making my face look messy.

I also know some girls that like to wear some makeup, such as a BB Cream with SPF protection to the beach.

Well, while I do respect people who like to wear makeup to go to the beach, that’s the ONE PLACE you’ll never see me wearing makeup at.  I’ll wear lots of sunscreen, chapstick with SPF as well as a hair treatment of some kind, but never makeup.  Although nowadays it’s much easier to find lots of waterproof makeup products on the market, it’s just not my thing.  When I go to the beach I like to lay down, relax and completely turn myself “off” from everything and the thought of wearing makeup on a hot day would make me concerned about whether or not I looked messy and melting down like a crying clown.

Do you wear makeup when going to the beach?

Question of the Week: Are you a high-end or drugstore makeup girl?

Posted by on Mar 12, 2014 in Question of the Week | 0 comments

 

Hi LOVES!

For years I loved to walk into Sephora (and I still do), browse around and pick up all my beauty “necessities” there.  I always found it very convenient to be able to find everything I needed (beauty related) in one store, without having to make other stops. However, nowadays, I am a lot more open to drugstore brands that offer good quality, low cost makeup, such as L’Oreal, Cover Girl, Maybelline, NYX, among others.  So now I feel like I have a LOT more reasons to go to Target (and browse through their lovely beauty section!)

After trying out tons of drugstore beauty products, I have learned that YES, I can find good quality, affordable makeup there and that I should not “knock it” until I’ve tried it… :)

Lots of Love………………Polly

FAIL: Exaggerate Undercover Shadow Primer by Rimmel London

Posted by on Mar 10, 2014 in Reviews | 0 comments

 

Good morning Loves!!!

I hate to do negative reviews and to be honest, I have a bit of a hard time doing so, but it’s time I start sharing my negative experiences as well instead of just the positive ones.

If you’ve watched any of my makeup tutorials you KNOW that Urban Decay’s Primer Potion (eye primer) is my favorite one of all times. I have tried other high-end eye primers, but haven’t found one I loved as much as UD’s.

I also realize that not everyone wants to spend $20 on an eye primer, so I am constantly looking for a good quality drugstore eye primer, but unfortunately THIS IS NOT IT.

Exaggerate Undercover Shadow Primer did not work for me. It has a very ‘wet’ formula and it took forever to dry, leaving a crease on my lids.  I waited until it was dry to apply the eyeshadow, which also creased by mid day. I have oily eyelids and if that is not your case, this eye primer may work better for you.

I have other Rimmel London products I really like, such as some of their lipsticks, eyeliner, etc, but this is NOT one of them.

Do you know a good drugstore eye primer? I’d love to hear from you!!!

Lots of Love…………Polly
