I used the Coral Glow while in Jamaica and loved the tan look I was able to achieve!

The mark. Pout Vinyl Lip Paints and Velvet Lip Paints will be available online beginning June 23, 2017. Yes, I had the opportunity to try them before they were officially out! Check out my pics here.

I bought the Shimmer Cream Cubes in March or April of 2016. I cannot believe they are still very much full. I use them with every makeup look I do. When I was in the Bahamas, it had to be about 9 p.m., and this guy said “GURLLL I see that highlight!!!!” They truly transform your look!

Yes, these cubes are the **** (put whatever you’d like here). Excuse the smudges on the cubes but these are my personal cubes. I accidentally dropped a pen in one of them. I am so amazed that they last this long! Definitely the best bang for your buck! Over a year of use and looks almost brand new!

In the picture below, I wanted to show you how I use each palette to achieve different looks. For no makeup looks, I use the Pearly Glow or if I want my makeup to be light and flirty. If I’m attempting to look a little more dramatic or in the evening, I opt for the Coral Glow or if I want to look a little more bronze. Look at both pictures below. That’s only a two-day difference!

A little goes a long way but you can always build it up if you want more drama. I usually only use one shade at a time but you can swirl them together to create a unique look. The best part about these cubes is that you can use them as highlighter, eye shadow, blush or all over to bronze or give your skin a more luminous glow!

Best Face Primer for Oily Skin EVER!!!

Face Primer that Actually Blurs Imperfections

Best primer for oily skin

Face Primer that actually blurs imperfections???

I can’t believe I haven’t done a review on Magix Face Perfector! OMG! This is seriously one of my staple products. I’ve included a before and after just so you can see why. In the before picture, I have absolutely nothing on my face (not even moisturizer). I simply washed my face and was ready to face the world.

Product Description:

“Upgraded formula! Is it makeup? No, it’s MagiX! It’s exclusive HD Finish Complex provides the “magic” in this colorless skin-perfector.

A revolutionary colorless gel-to-powder formula provides invisible coverage for a naturally flawless finish and keeps skin looking naturally matte for 7 full hours. The “magic” behind magiX is Avon’s patent-pending High Definition Finish Complex, an exclusive complex that works to counteract shine and visibly smooth the look of fine lines and pores! The Face Perfector can be used as a primer, but also can be used on its own to blur away and imperfections. The colorless primer is perfect for all day wear and fights the look of oily shine, it also has SPF 20 to help keep your skin healthy and glowing.

BENEFITS
• Dermatologist-tested
• Oil-free
• Non-comedogenic
• Smooth, glowing and radiant skin!
• SPF 20
• Contains a blend of Fleece Flower and Rose Extract
• Formulated with patent-pending HD Finish Complex for a photo ready look
• Instantly hides the look of uneven skin texture
• Keeps skin looking naturally matte for 7 full hours
• Contains fleece flower and rose extracts
• Reduces the appearance of pores
• Suitable for all skin tones
• Sleek new packaging”

Why did I choose this face primer?

I wasn’t looking for a flawless finish. Honestly, I just wanted a face primer that could blur some of the discoloration and make me look more well-groomed without so much makeup. I was in Jamaica and I knew that I would engage in water activities. I didn’t want to look like my face was melting when I got out of the pool due to makeup but I also knew that I didn’t want to look like the undead in photos. I also wanted a sunscreen as I knew we’d spend a lot of time outdoors in the sun. My goal was to create a quick and easy makeup non-makeup look.

Before Picture: As you can see, I have slight discoloration in the middle of my cheek. I’m not sure if it’s acne scars, hormones, bad eating habits or what but it forms almost a square or makeup even a star (depending on who’s interpretation).

After Picture: I applied the MagiX Face Perfector (face primer) and mark. Touch & Glow Shimmer Cubes All Over Face Palette. No foundation and no concealer at all!

Makeup Routine:

  1. Washed face with Anew Vitale Gel Cleanser (now discontinued)…Find out what I use now
  2. Applied MagiX Face Perfector
  3. Applied mark. Touch & Glow Shimmer Cubes All Over Face Palette
  4. Completed eyebrows with Glimmersticks Brow Definer and Perfect Eyebrow Kit
  5. Applied Big & Multiplied Mascara

Viola! That was it! Quick and simple easy makeup look.

What’s my skin type?

I used to have dry skin but as I’ve gotten older, I have combination skin. The T-zone is usually oil and dry around the cheeks.

Do I have sensitive skin?

My skin is very sensitive. I easily breakout and it seems like I’m allergic to life! I have more discoloration on my cheek from cellphone use.

How does it feel?

The face primer is like a gel to powder so it’s very light and airy. It’s non-greasy and absorbs easily into the skin. It doesn’t feel heavy once applied and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth.

How much does the face primer costs?

Normally, it retails for $12.00 but currently on sale for $8.00.

How long have I used this product?

Edited: at the time of this review: or about four months but only underneath my foundation. This was the first time using the product alone. As of February 24, 2018, it is still my go-to face primer! I refuse to use anything else!

Would you recommend this product?

Most definitely!

Update: mark. Touch & Glow Shimmer Cream Cubes All Over Face Palette Review

Updated:

I’m officially back in the United States and wanted to share with you my no makeup, tanned look. To create this look, I simply used Magix Face Perfector, defined my brows, Big & Multiplied mascara, and the mark. shimmer cubes. That’s it! No Foundation! No blush! No eyeshadow! I wanted to stick with very light makeup as we’d be out in the sun for the most part and in the water, I didn’t want to look like the undead after rising. I really concentrated on my cheeks and lightly dusted over my t-zone area. Pics below!

Original post:

Guess who’s going to Jamaica next week?!?! I am!!! Yep, that’s right! A week in Jamaica. Unfortunately, due to this harsh Chicago winter air, I haven’t had time to get a nice bronzy glow so I’m going to fake it until I make it in Jamaica. I decided to purchase mark. Touch & Glow Shimmer Cream Cubes All Over Face Palette. The palette is available in two shades: Pearly Glow and Coral Glow. I decided to purchase Coral Glow as I wasn’t sure about the pigmentation showing well on my skin tone.

You can combine all shades for a nice all over bronzy glow or dab each shade individually with your finger. To check the consistency and pigmentation, I swatched each of the shimmer cubes with my finger tips. I was pleasantly surprised by the lack of effort required to pick up a good amount of product. The formula felt as if a light cream. It wasn’t too heavy and I wouldn’t have any problem wearing throughout the day. I’ve never used any cream-to-powder formulas before so I thought it would dry a little heavy. To my surprise, it didn’t! I can definitely see myself wearing this face palette everyday in the summer. It can be worn alone or used to highlight or used as a bronzer. I tried blending all shades together and applied with a Kabuki brush and it looked great! It almost looked as if I had on a shimmering foundation. My skin looked nice and radiant!
