Today we honor those who lost their lives while protecting us. Their bravery and commitment overwhelms me to tears. 

I hope you all have had a great Memorial Day!

Have you heard of MatchCº foundation ?

It’s “Makeup MADE to MATCH you”.

I first heard about this on the Today Show and couldn’t wait to give it a try.

First you have to have an iphone and download the MatchCº app.

Next, you go through a series of steps to determine your color match. This is no joke. You have your camera flash on and basically tap your phone on different areas of your skin until she (the app lady) feels like she has your exact match.

Guess what? It works! My match was PERFECT!

Can we talk about how they put your name on the bottle?

So how does it work? Works just fine!

It has a pump applicator and I would say the coverage is light to medium but if you prefer more coverage it’s easily buildable. The only reason I am not using it right now is because in April I start up the fake tanning and it isn’t my exact match anymore (sadly).

I can’t remember the exact cost but I believe it was around $40.

I’ve been a fan of Origins for quite a while. There are so many things that I have used and love. Tonight i’m just talking about one….as in THE one 😉

Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask | Sephora  $26

My skin is very dry. This can be used twice a week. Just apply at bedtime and let the little miracle happen. I really do love this stuff. I don’t know what else I can say about it.

We all have our regular moisturizers. This is just great to have when you need a boost.

So, because my lips stay so dry i’m always looking for the next greatest invention. For me, I need some good exfoliating action from time to time to start over.

I found Sweet Pops from Clinique – $19.50

I really like this. It’s a 2-in-1 deal.  One side is a sugar scrub and the other is a tinted balm. Now, the sales lady told me you apply the scrub and the lip balm on top of that? I’m sorry, what? I asked her again because I must have heard her wrong. No, you put on the scrub and then put the balm right on top of it. Yeah, that just isn’t right.

I apply the scrub and really give it a good scrub in circular motions and then tissue it off before applying the moisturizer. I can’t imagine walking around with chunks of sugar on my lips. She really did have nice lips though so maybe i’m the crazy one. ?  She also told me it was edible. It does not taste good (yes I tried). I decided i’m not the crazy one (this time).

Anyway, I think this is pretty good stuff. Give it a try!

I will have another giveaway to show you later this week!

Stay tuned !

Enjoy the rest of your Monday!
