OK ladies, this is a first. You know that I am the dermatological queen – blogging on the most technologically advanced skin care out there – right? Me? Write about make up? Mais, non ma petite! OH YES, mais oui!
I am all about luminosity. I live for it, breathe it, I would eat it if I could. I steep my skin in Sandra’s brew of growth factors, glycolics, Retin-A, you name it. All to obtain the visage that reflects light just so or Comme Ça as the French would say. I have the AM routine to a science with just the right amount of a luminous foundation – but apply powder and like a wet blanket on a great party – my luminosity is gone. Ditto x10 for a touch up powder.
My absolute cannot live without newest product is Lorac Perfectly Lit Luminous powder. It won Allure’s “Best of Beauty” and I am SO not surprised. I love it so much I want to marry it. I’m not kidding. This product is unlike any other powder I have ever found to get that glow. Don’t you DARE put a single sparkle on my face to achieve it – I want glow not glitter! This baby achieves it beautifully (no pun intended).
According to Shaw, “When a celebrity is on set and looks flawless we say, “She is Perfectly Lit.” This oil-free luminizing powder creates the effect of being in your own personal spotlight, which helps diminish the appearance of imperfections while evening out the skin tone for a flawless, youthful, radiant complexion. The oil, fragrance and talc-free powder are good for all skin types, including sensitive skin. I use Perfectly Lit to highlight cheekbones, or I use it over makeup on the entire face for a flawless, luminous finish.”
Perfectly Lit? Takes on a whole new meaning from our college party days.
Make up bag meet Perfectly Lit. Perfectly Lit, meet my makeup bag. You two will be inseparable. Makes my walk to the train feel like a walk down the red carpet. Paparazzi hold your pictures, please!
Ciao for now,
