current obsession: {cosmetics review}

I'm not the kind of girl to find an AMAZING product and keep it to myself.
Thus, I want to share with you TWO of the amazing drugstore cosmetics items I have purchased and tried out in the past few weeks.

1. L'Oreal Studio Secrets Professionals Color Correcting Primer
I purchased the Green for Anti-Redness.
$12.99 at Walgreens.

Description: 
Professional Color Correcting Primers glide on smoothly to immediately correct and improve the look of your complexion. 

Review:
I have had serious issues with allergy hives and welps all over my face and neck, and I was desperate to find a product that would mask the redness without being too heavy.  The green tint of the primer not only covered up the red FLAWLESSLY, but it works as a great primer for keeping my makeup in place all day.  I was so surprised to get such great results because some of the online reviews spoke of a "Shrek" like glow. But, listen chickens, if you HAVE redness cause my blemishes or what-have-you, then the green tint is PERFECT.

Conclusion:
You will have to wear a foundation or powder over it.  It is not a one step fix it, but if you have redness that has not been fixed by any other product, give it a chance. I hope you try it and have good results, let me know!

2. Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer (w/ SPF 30)
I purchased the product at Walgreens, for $12.99 on sale, regular priced $16.99

Description: 
Clinically proven Total Soy Complex and natural light diffusers work to naturally even out skin tone and immediately reflect light to bring out skin's natural radiance.

Review:
I have been out of tinted moisturizer for quite a while.  I used to use the Cover Girl product, but I believe it was discontinued.  In the summer months, I like the wear little makeup and the coverage of a tinted moisturizer is just enough coverage PLUS sun protection.  The Aveeno is everything I could have hoped for and more. The coverage is superb, and when I wear it on bare face, I don't have to wear foundation or powder.  We all know how important it is to wear SPF ALL the time, and this product makes it a one step #WIN.

Conclusion:
Don't forget how importnat it is to also apply sunscreen products to your neck as well.
The product is a bit steep, so check for a markdown for best deal!
I wear the primer under the moisturizer and have perfect color and coverage ALL day!

Let me know if you try any of these products.
Happy hump day, chickens!

  1. My hero!  I'm totally running out and getting that anti-redness primer.  I must have rosacea or something like that because my cheeks are always red and splotchy-ish, so I can't wait to try that out.

  6.  I tried responding to this earlier, so hopefully we don't get a million responses now... But I was just going to say that you should check the prices as Wal-mart because they are probably cheaper! Let me know how the experiment goes! Hope it works as wonderfully for you!
