Physicians Formula Youthful Wear Foundation and Concealer Review

IMG 9971

Physicians Formula has a new line out called Youthful Wear Cosmeceutical Youth-Boosting Makeup.

In this line they have three pieces: foundation, concealer and powder, all meant to be worn together to create a more youthful appearance.

Their “Youth-Boosting Technology” includes 3 Cosmeceutical ingredients:

  • Encapsulated Ceramide3 & Hyaluronic acid which smooths skin, creates elasticity and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Microspheres of Magnesium Silicate & Silica which are diffusers that create a soft-focus finish and absorb oil (basically a primer)
  • Lamiaria Algae Extract which is a plant based medicine that tones, moisturizes and supports collagen production in skin.

There are some hefty claims they make that are based on a panel of women using the Youthful Wear system:

  • 100% saw flawless results instantly
  • 100% saw smoother skin instantly
  • 100% saw less deep wrinkles and less fine lines instantly
  • 100% saw younger looking skin instantly
  • 100% of women would use Youthful Wear as an alternative to a cosmetic procedure
  • 95% felt skin appeared lifted instantly
  • 95% saw firmer looking skin instantly

Hmm. Some things I agree with, but then again I could say them about using many different primer/foundation/concealer combinations.

Zoya Beach & Surf Collections for Summer 2012 Swatches & Review

Zoya Beach and Surf are the new summer collections for 2012, inspired by the sea and sand!

There are twelve new colors in all, six in each collection. Beach focuses on mostly creme colors and Surf is all about foils!

The formula for Beach overall was pretty good. There were some slight streaking issues with a couple, but they mostly worked out. All but one were two coats. The formula with the Surf colors was great. Creamy amazing foils. Applied like butter, and all just two coats.

Ready to get your bright pop of summer color on?

NARS Spring 2012 Collection Swatches & Review

NARS spring 2012 collection is a small one that packs a colorful punch.

Dark Rite is a Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in navy blue.

Paramaribo is a Duo Eyeshadow in a MUST HAVE combo (I think).
