PRODUCT REVIEW: Mac Mineralize Skin Finish (duo)

Have you ever had a product that just so blew you away, you were literally jumping up and down like a school girl? Well, that rarely happens to me. Well, not lately anyways. Because after years of working with cosmetics, it’s fun, i love it, I heart it, but makeup is makeup. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.

But every now and then, you use something that just makes you squeal like a little girl. OKAY, I admit it. I did. I actually did.

And it breaks my heart to think that while I was in New York, this little gem was waiting for me in Los Angeles. All that time…. I could have been…. sniffle.. no I won’t go there….

I present:

Mac’s Mineralize Skinfinish Duo

Oh lord, it so had me at hello. Yes, it’s been out forever, and yes it’s a shimmer powder. No my dears, this is more than just a shimmer powder. This is the magician of all shimmer powders. Did I just say I squealed? Yes. I sure did.

200808281842.jpg

The duo has a 1/2 shimmer gold/silver side and a 1/2 matte powder side. Brush matte side for a matte finish, brush the shimmer side for a intense shimmer glow, (as in tops of cheeks, etc) or buff across both for a softer version of shimmer heaven. It’s 3 products in one. And the shimmer? Angel’s sang, heaven’s parted.. it is a sight to behold that yes, even jaded me at 40+ (cough cough) felt like I was 16 all over again. This stuff makes skin sheen, look buffed and polished and just radiant.

Did i mention it’s 3 products for the price of one?

I was soooo wearing this at fashion week.

MSN Beauty Tips #1

MSN posted a big ole list of beauty tips, of the likes of which I have hardly seen before. Interesting no? So I decided to actually see if I could use them and if they would work. I mean, why not? I’m all about the makeup tip and trick, and hey, if it really works? I’m so in beauty heaven.

So tip #1.

1) Powder Your Roots

If your hairline starts to look greasy, dig up a big, fluffy makeup brush, and dip it into a pot of loose powder. Tap it once on the back of your hand to remove the excess, then dust it over your roots. It mops up oil and blends into your strands, so no one will know you didn’t shower.

Yep, this actually does work, but with an exception. Blondes tend to have an easier time with this trick because the powder will blend into the hair more. Brunettes? Um, not so much. What we end up getting is fuzzy gray roots instead. Why? The beige powder mixing with the dark hair makes it look ah, gray.

Instead, try a invisible powder. They’re out there, hard to find, but boy do they work. For both face and hair.

Allison Raffaele made one of the first ones and in my opinion, the best one.
