Hello all my beauties! Its been about 2 months since I've done a blog post. During that 2 months alot have gone on in my life, all good things but I am glad to be back. I recently moved and started a new job, so things were packed my brain was not channeled into the beauty world.
Now that things are getting somewhat settled I will be easing back into the blogging atmosphere. Thanks to all who stuck around during my little time away. I promise to get back to business shortly!

Stay Tuned!

Celebrating 10 years of Beauty | Givenchy Croisiere Poudre Bonne Mine

Givenchy is one of those luxury brands that every woman should own one of. In celebration of Givenchy's 10 years of beauty I wanted to share with you Givenchy's Poudre Croisiere. A weighless and long lasting healthy glow powder that can be worn all year round. It is the first talc free powder with invisible texture and gives a beautiful natural glow to the skin. Whats more intriguing is that is a baked gel powder which I have never heard of before. The texture is very soft and blendable as well.

The price point is a little on the high side retailing in the $50 range but its well worth the money for a luxury brand.  The Givenchy Poudre Coisiere applies perfectly with the Kabuki brush and Givenchy's Mister Radiant. 

How to apply:
Using the Kabuki Brush, stroke over the entire face paying attention to the forehead, cheekbones, bridge of nose and decolette.

Since I have a lighter shade (poudre bonne mine #2) I love how soft the powder applies. It gives myself a soft golden sheen to my skin highlighting the high points of my face without looking overly highlighted. I would say that this is perfect for everyday makeup application where I wanted a subtle wash of colour to my face. Given that it is a higher price point I also only use it on occasion so that It lasts as long as possible.

Givenchy Mister Mat Primer

There are so many primers on the market, enough to confuse anyone just looking for one that simply primes and keeps makeup in place. I've tried many primers throughout my makeup years to know what type of textures I like and dislike. I was introduced to Givenchy Mister Mat back when I worked at Sephora and I instantly fell in love. I guess I should say that textures of primer I personally don't like to use are primers that are silicone based. Ewww! Anyway that brings me to my next point. Givenchy Mister Mat is a silicone based primer!

Yes you heard me! and I love it. What I didn't know was that there are many silicone based primers that have different textures and I have discovered that the more slip to a silicone based primer the more I disliked it. Givenchy Mister Mat has become one of my true loves in the primer family. Its light weight, fills imperfections and mattifies the skin on those hot summer days. You can wear it alone to control oil or underneath makeup. Its also great for men who also have oilier skin and want to control it. Another plus to the Givenchy Mister Mat primer is that it can be used to touch up throughout the day on top of your makeup, which alot of primers do not allow you to do without compromising your makeup application. The perfect amount to use is a dime size amount and evenly spread it along the face. For those who have an oilier t zone I would recommend starting in the t zone first and distributing the primer outwards.

Overall I love this primer, its always my go to for the warmer months and it makes my makeup look and stay fresh all. day.
What are some of your favourite primers to use in the summer? Let me know in the comments below
