Staying beautiful seems to be ever present in any girls’ checklist. It’s like the undying fad for some girls. They don’t explicitly broadcast it but it will always convey in their actions and twinkling eyes whenever they see clothes, beauty products, etc. In line with this, I also noticed how girls nowadays are persistent in searching for the best skin care/product that will truly enhance their natural beauty. Remarkable and tested products are indeed good investments, although these beauty treasures are hard to find. And I think I just acquired the passion for searching these clandestine beauty treasures recently.
These past few days, I have been stumbling on interesting and informative blogs, specifically blogs of beauty and makeup gurus. I don’t know how it exactly happened but I’m glad it did. Afterwards, I noticed how all my tabs are on their blogs, which was a big surprise to me because beauty products were never appealing to me. I would normally buy what my mom buys and from there I experiment. Luckily, my mom buys excellent products for sensitive skin and we have the same skin color and skin type so it saved me from damaging my skin and helped me achieve the natural look my mom and I always go for. I believe there’s no reason to hide one’s beauty that’s why I always make sure I can still recognize myself after putting some makeup.
My perception of makeup changed after watching makeup tutorials and reading various reviews on soaps, moisturizers, foundations, lip balms, makeup brushes and the like. SERIOUSLY! I think had a divine “makeup/beauty products” intervention few weeks ago. I got fascinated on how makeup can drastically change a look. I also got information on how to keep my skin healthy and fresh. The tips I gathered will definitely help me. Crossing paths with some beauty blogs was perfect timing.
Anyway, the ultimate reason why I’m blogging right now is because I want to share a new discovery, all thanks to all the good reviews on the web. Honestly, it’s my first time to hear about BARENATURALS. They are a skin care line that makes use of natural ingredients. If you will ask me it’s a one stop make-up store.
I got 3 products – EMU primer, no break-out to makeup soap and finishing powder. My package even came with 3 freebies (two (2) blush ons and One (1) Apricot soap) which I thought was so cool! It’s my first time to get freebies from an online store so that’s a big plus for them.
1) SKIN PERFECTING Primer
My reason for buying:
I bought this one because I realized that I’ve never had my own primer ever. Also, I just discovered that its functions are to prepare the face for a better application of makeup, to keep the face matte and to keep the makeup last longer (cool). Although, Boohoo! I got the memo late.
- It has a gentle sweet scent
- It makes my skin smooth and silky. Once it dries, it’ll be easier to put on makeup
- It’s not sticky and too watery.
- IT WORKS! I noticed that my makeup doesn’t slide off easily and everything else is in place.
- Its container is very handy
2) No Break-Out to Makeup Soap
My reason for buying:
Initially, I thought the name of the soap was too catchy to be unnoticed. “No Break-Out to Makeup” is what I think EVERYONE using makeup is looking for. One of the good marketing strategies starts with packaging and I believe this soap’s packaging deserves a golden star. You’ll instantly know its purpose in the name itself and you’ll want to get your hands on it asap. Also I got this out of curiosity with a lot of convincing from its good reviews.
- I love the scent. I can smell all the natural ingredients when I use it.
- It can easily remove makeup
- Leaves my skin smooth and soft
- The shape will make sure that it wont slide off in your hands easily and it reminds me of a lego.Haha
- Sometimes it makes some parts of my skin dry. Take note, sometimes.
3) Mineral Setting Powder (Spotlight)
My reason for buying:
I got this because I have read a lot of good reviews and also just out of curiosity.
It gives off a nice finishing glow and flawless finish.
Good for retouching
Its container is very handy and won’t take much space in your bag
Not too expensive. Hence, it’s a good alternative for my Clinique powder. Especially when I’m feeling thrifty.
GOOD FINISHING POWDER
I’m so happy I was able to find these beauty treasures. Not only are they reasonably affordable but the results are priceless. I gotta say my first experience as Barenaturals’ client was a thrill. I’m looking forward to trying more of their products. Trust me, their products are worth your money.
HAPPY LONG WEEKENED!:)
