As winter is approaching I am starting to see my skin get dryer. Using only my Kiehl’s Dry Argan Oil isn’t cutting it. And so since I was all out of my large Kiehl’s Creme de Corps I decided to stop by Nordstrom last night and pick up some heavy duty moisturizers lol.

I restocked on Creme De Corps:

So I have used the Creme de Corps body butter before but not in this scent, I think it’s new for the holidays and most importantly it’s LIMITED EDITION. Lmao we all know what those words do to me 😂😂😂.

I also wanted to try out a new body butter that smelled amazing. So the girl at the counter showed me the Moroccan Oil body butter:

I tried it last night and I smells and feels amazing!
Last but not least I picked up the Laura Mercier Body Soufflé in Vanilla Amber.

Oil Control

I have found the perfect combination of products for oily skin!!!

So, I have no idea why, but my skin has been out of control oily. Like to the point where if I wear my make up at 7am, by 1pm I am shining like a damn hologram. So I had to do something about it. I bought so so so so many different types of matte primers, and blotting powders but I was never satisfied. Until I found this PHENOMENAL combination.

So I tone with Murad Clarifying Toner (which I have been using forever now) and then I apply this new moisturizer: Skin Perfecting Lotion
image
After a min I apply the Laura Mercier Oil Free Toner:
image
Then I will apply my foundation of choice and set it with my loose/pressed powder of choice. Unlike before, my t-zone won’t get oily until 5/6pm, and when it does get oily…This is what I blot with Smooth Focus Pressed Setting Powder Shine Contol:
imageThis shit is for REAL!
image
The color is kinda of a mint green, but it goes on colorless. It has a thin sponge you should use to apply. I have yet to try a blotting powder like this. It’s amazing! The biggest mistake I have made all this time is using a brush to apply blotting powder. BIG NO NO. I have realized what a big difference it makes when I use the sponge instead.
image
If you have oily skin I seriously recommend this combination of products. If you guys try it let me know if you liked it.

    Hi anyut

    Hope you can help me ..
    I have oily skin and I wanted to ask if you know anything to help remove or close pores permanently? I know you’re skin is perfect but maybe you know from friends? If not permanently maybe reduce the appearance? I’ve been using the Sunday Riley good genes with the Murad toner for a month I’ve heard it helps reduce but they still show and i hate It 🙁 My pores aren’t huge but they’re visible especially on the apples of my cheek and it makes it hard for me to use any highlighter on my cheekbones because they appear bigger whenever I apply shimmery stuff..

      Hi Nora.

      First off let me assure you that my skin is far from perfect. I just try to take care of it as much as I can. In regards to making your pores smaller with a product, all those products are gimics. The only products that will help with pores are silicone based primers that will go inside your pores and blue them like the new YSL blur primer in a compact. Use clay masks for deep cleaning often. If you really feel like your desperate and you have to do something, you should look into lasers. Hope that helped.

        Thank you so much for the reply anyut
        From pics I can see you gave lovely skin .. And I have to say seeing how religious you are about your skin encouraged and made me stick to a regimen and I’m still hoping to see results
        I always heard the silicone based primers are bad for skin that’s why I haven’t been using them .. I would look into lasers but I want to go to a recommended dr someone I’ve seen had visible results because I’m worried they’ll just make mine worse and up until now haven’t seen anyone worth going too .. Do you recommend the Ysl blur primer? I have been using the snadhbox for a while but noticed it makes the area I apply it to Cakey have you heard anything about the new Mufe primers the one for pores?

          I personally don’t like silicone based primers. You should try benefit porfessional.

      You cannot remove or close your pores permanently, you can only make them look smaller! Try the Paula’s Choice Resist Daily Pore-Refining Treatment 2% BHA, it’s really good imo. She has other pore-refining products as well 🙂

    Have you tried applying a very light layer of powder on your face BEFORE foundation? It could help your foundation last even longer 🙂

      Wow really? I’ve always knows to not apply liquid over powder. Sounds interesting I’ll give it a shot. Thanx

Laura Mercier Contour Kit

Stopped by Topanga Canyon Sephora last night, I was hoping to see the new Laura Mercier and Kat Von D contour kits (even though it says exclusive to sephora.com). To my surprise they had the Laura Mercier:

I’m glad I had not ordered it online cause I really didn’t like the colors AT ALL (especially the highlights), and I also didn’t love the fact that it was cream contour rather than powder. I’ll post my purchases later on today.

In my book it would be a crime to walk into a department store and walk out without at least one item of cosmetics. No matter what I go in for there is just no way I won’t give the beauty department a twirl!
image
Of course…most of time I find myself not needing anything…ok not most but ALL! But I guess when your a addict (a proud one might I add) then you just can’t say no!

Relaxing Saturday Night…

Hey guys,

Hope you all had a fun Saturday night…I spent my night at the Americana at Brand with my mom and mother-in-law. Took them out to dinner and a movie.
Of course I stopped by Sephora and Nordies to see if there were any products that I might want. Here is what I got:

A couple of weeks ago I got a Laura Mercier Foundation Primer which I ended up giving to my older sister because I later realized I needed the “oil free” version. My t-zone is oily my cheeks are dry.
So yesterday I got the oil free foundation primer by Laura Mercier:

image
This is my fourth lip balm By Sara Happ. It’s to die for! Perfect for someone like me who hardly wears lipstick
image
Last week I stopped by Sephora and got a tiny sample of the Josie Maran Argan Illuminizer. I had seen that Teni Panossian in her youtube clip had mixed a little bit in with her foundation for a nice glow. I tried it a few times and loved it! So I got the full size:
image
Here is what it looks like:
image

It is always nice to ask to ask for a sample at Sephora or any other store to try something out, rather than buying it taking it home, using it then retuning it. That is kind of rude in my opinion, unless it is an item that you can not get a sample of. If I don’t like something or it didn’t work for my skin I always give it to my sisters. Every few months they get bags of products, they like to think of it as X-mas lol.

Tonight I am going to a concert so I will try to post what the Illuminizer looks like on the skin.

XoXo,
Anyut

    I discovered your blog a couple of months ago and bookmarked it then forgot about it. Then later i started checking it more often for your product reviews. They are very helpful, thanks much! I hate trying make up in the store, and i used to buy everything and anything that looked appealing and ended up not using most of them, what a waste! Now since there is you, and you have the almost exact same skin tone as i, i just go in and already know what to get. When it comes to skin products like washes and scrubs, i’m a bit on the sensitive side so i gotta stick to a very few products that don’t actually damage my skin.

    I have actually tried the Argan Illuminizer in the past, over my foundation and loved it. Now i’ll get a new one and try mixing with my foundation.

    Thanks again!

    I totally agree with you when you say its rude to buy something and then return it, I feel so embarrassed doing it, but there is times when I walked in sephora and asked for a sample and they literally only gave me drops of the item I asked to sample.

    September 29, 2013 @ 10:03 PM Reply
    1. anyut says:

      lol then be a pain and ask for more. Or when asking for a sample always say can I have a sample for 2 days of use.

Both these foundations are wonderful. The Laura I used to use years ago, it has amazing coverage and is very creamy in texture. My mother swears by this cause she has dry skin. It stays on all day!
