As I mentioned in Tuesday’s post, my daily makeup routine is on the minimal side. So I’m always on the lookout for products that do double duty and are easy to apply.
I’ve used Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow for some years and have been happy with it, but when I stopped to pick up a refill this week, a Sales Associate suggested this newer product in a stick format. For the sake of research 😉 I agreed give it a try and wound up purchasing this one instead. Just like the original, it works as a both base and shadow, goes on smoothly, stays put, and doesn’t settle into creases. But the stick format is more portable and travel-friendly. Apply on the lid along the lash line, then blend up with your finger. Because I have hooded eyes, I also apply above the crease and blend in. I chose color “Taupe” which is a nice “no-makeup makeup” choice, but may try some other shades too.
I love the definition I get with a lip liner, but on a daily basis don’t want to bother with it. Trish McEvoy “Beauty Booster” Lip and Cheek Color lets me define and add subtle color with one product. I like the color “Perfect Pink Shimmer” which isn’t too disco-glittery but is a great My Lips But Better color. It stays put much longer than most balms or glosses, but is still plenty moisturizing. I have not yet tried as a cheek color, but again, it’s a great travel-friendly option.
Neither of these products requires a sharpener, another plus.
For the sake of simplifying and streamlining my morning skincare routine, I’ve been using my Revision Intellishade as a one-step moisturizer, sunscreen and tint, applied after serum. I was initially concerned that it might not be moisturizing enough on its own, but so far, so good.
