Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder and Puff

Do you TLSP?

The Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder, or TLSP, is a great multi-purpose powder. Not only does it help set makeup, but it also keeps skin from looking oily as the day wears on. This award-winning powder now comes in two shades: Translucent (the shade I tried) and Translucent Medium Deep for darker skin tones. I usually don’t use setting powder but after trying this I can see why I should- it definitely made a big difference in how my makeup looked and how it wore throughout the day.

February Beauty Favorites / All About Hydration

February Beauty Favorites

My February beauty favorites always seem to revolve around hydration. Whether it’s needing hydration for my hair or for my face, it’s always a month where I need a little extra help. I guess February is when my body revolts against winter, it just can’t take it anymore! This last month was no exception. Luckily, I had a couple of tried and true products that I went back to and I picked up a fun new scent. My February beauty favorites ended up being the NUXE Reve de Miel Lip Balm, the Bath & Body Works Tutti Dolci Pink Peony Body Cream, and the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Dollface.

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Prismatic Amethyst

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Prismatic AmethystI love BECCA highlighters and I’m always waiting for the brand to release new ones so I can try them! The BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Prismatic Amethyst is their latest limited-edition shade and I couldn’t wait to check it out. Prismatic Amethyst is the newest shade in a sea of unusually colored highlighters that have been popping up recently. This is described as a lavender duo-chrome with a holographic effect to it. Initially I was unsure if this highlighter would work for me as I’m pretty warm-toned and this looked really cool and light but once I tried it on at the store, I had to have it. It’s so pretty and a lot more subtle than I was expecting.

January Beauty Favorites

January Beauty FavoritesAfter lots of shimmer, glitter, and bright lips in December, I was in need of a makeup refresh. My beauty look in January was all about neutrals and easy-to-apply products. I no longer wanted to spend a lot of time getting my look just right, instead I wanted something I could throw on in a few minutes before running out the door (while still looking good, of course!). There were three products that I kept reaching for over and over again because they always worked with whatever I was wearing and lasted all day long. My January beauty favorites were the Laura Mercier Editorial Eye Palette Intense Clays, the Blinc Mascara Amplified, and the Catrice Illuminating Blush in Kiss Me Ken 030.

Laura Mercier Editorial Eye Palette Intense Clays

Laura Mercier Editorial Eye Palette Intense ClaysThe Laura Mercier Editorial Eye Palette Intense Clays is a new eye palette that contains six shadows with a unique formulation and a setting powder. These “clay” shadows are a mix between a cream and a powder and they have almost a wet, spongy feel to them. They are designed to be super pigmented and the included setting powder keeps them from wearing off or smudging throughout the day. This palette contains three matte and three metallic shades, all with intense color payoff. The neutral shades can be mixed and matched to create tons of different looks ranging from smudged, smoky eyes to sharp, graphic looks.
