Sorry I'm a little late posting this entry. I had a doctor's appointment this morning and am just now getting to typing this.
I tell yah, our fellow bloggers can be really convincing when it comes to buying new products. Lately, I've been super intrigued by asian beauty products. I can't wait till my trip in May to the Philippines so that I can go on an Asian Beauty Spending Spree!
In the last week I picked up 3 of the most talked about products on the blog scene: BB Cream, Mandem Makeup Remover, and Lucido Curling Spray.
I've tried some of the products out so far and here are my thoughts:
Legere BB Cream:
I picked this because it seemed to be the darkest one and I'm usually NC42-43. I think right now I'm about NC40. Unfortunately, I tried this and it's still too light for me :( I have to put on a darker powder on top for me not to look weird. I like being my natural color so I'm afraid I'm going to have to sell this baby. So sad. Stay tuned for my entry on an upcoming makeup garage sale. Besides that, it has a thick consistency so you really don't need more than a dime sized amount which is a good thing! It did a pretty good job of covering up marks and discoloration. I love how it has makeup base and sunscreen built in. I'd say this is more for those NC35 and under.
Lucido L Curl:
Am I supposed to spray this on my hair before or after curling? I tried both but I'm not sure, lol. It seems like it's working but I need proper directions before I give a final review. Help me Kim Tia! Besides that, it's a water like consistency and smells nice and fresh :)
Mandem Makeup Remover:
I didn't realize it, but I picked up the Agecare version. Ooops! I meant to get the one for Sensitive Skin. Whoa, all the reviews were right! This stuff is the Ish! It truly looks like rice milk but it melts off all makeup including mascara and liner. The good thing about this is that it doesn't sting at all. Some oil free makeup removers have a tendency to do that. It's better than my Cleanse Off Oil from MAC since it's not as messy and you don't have to deal with it getting into your contacts. This stuff is soooo on my HG list.
Hope you enjoyed my mini review! If you guys have insight on how to apply the Lucido Aqua Curl or if there's a darker BB cream out there, let me know!
