I'm so blessed to have my good friend Marcia provide a guest post today. My husband has been ill and during the time that he recovers, some of my Beauty Blog Coalition buddies have been so kind as to help me out. A blogger just cries inside over the idea of disappointing her readers by not blogging, but sometimes circumstances happen that are beyond our control. I'm so thankful to my friends for providing some interesting reads in between what I am able to compose. Please be sure to visit Marcia at Beauty Info Zone as they cover a lot of great items I know you'd like over there.
Do you ever wonder what beauty bloggers wear when they aren’t testing products? As a beauty blogger we have the ‘difficult’ job of testing many cosmetics and skincare items. Luckily for me most are successes but I’m just a normal (though addicted) beauty consumer so I have favorites that I don’t want to be without. I’ve chosen three of these (actually 4 since I don’t know how to count) to share with Polarbelle’s audience. These are items that I use either daily or often enough that I don’t want to be without.
1. Mally Beauty Evercolor Poreless Face Defender ($40). I bought my first Mally Poreless Face Defender in a Mally kit on QVC. I was considering the kit and what sold me on it was seeing there was a sample size of this as one of the products. It wasn’t long before I realized that this was what I’d been searching for, I then ordered a full size one from beauty.com. I use this as a replacement for powdering my face. What makes this so unusual is the texture. It’s a clear gel like product that doesn’t feel like gel. It’s got a smooth texture that feels like a soft rubber. Buying the full size means I got the great sponge with it for application. The sponge is the perfect tool for Poreless Face Defender. I press it into the product and try not to pick up too much. Then I just blot it on my face. You don’t want to use a lot. It gives my face a matte finish though not quite as matte as a powder. It keeps the oilies at bay for me and helps blur my pores. A winner.
3. MAC eyeshadow in Moth Brown ($15). This is an oldie but goodie. It was rereleased in 2012 so it fits in with favorites of the year but I bought it the first time (2005) and the second time (2007) around. Where they came up with that name I’ll never know. On me there’s no brown at all, it’s a dark gray with a touch of violet to it. It’s not a shade for everyone. Some people feel that they look bruised in it but for me it’s a shade that I can count on all the time. I barely buy MAC anymore but if they’d bring back their old textures like Moth Brown or Satin Taupe, they’d win my heart again.
Thanks for reading about some of my favorites. I hope you’ll check me out on http://www.beautyinfozone.com and maybe stick around for a while,
