It’s hot today in the North Bay (or, as we say in the Bay Area, it’s “HELLA hot here right now”). It’s a heat wave.

Weirdly, it’s been way hotter here in Novato than it was in Hawaii last week.

Super hot and super sweaty. Currently, my house is like an armpit, so baby and I are going to escape to air-conditioned pastures in a bit, but before we go, let’s talk makeup setting sprays…

When it’s hot like this, they’re a must for me, and here are a few I love.

1. Make Up For Ever Mist & Fix O2 ($30)

The best all-rounder. You can probably guess that this one’s my fave because — look, there’s only a teeny bit left in the bottle! πŸ™‚ It doesn’t matter what type of finish I’m wearing (matte, dewy, glittery, shimmery, whatever!), it holds on to everything and keeps it in place.

I can sweat like crazy — even rub at my eyes or touch my face — and it keeps whatever I’m wearing from melting off or disappearing.

Also, I think Mist & Fix is the best spray for applying shimmer eyeshadows, glitter shadows and/or loose pigments with a wet brush because it’s almost like a lightweight liquid glue.

Take Me With You, Milk Makeup Blush Oil! http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/milk-makeup/milk-makeup-blush-oil-review/ http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/milk-makeup/milk-makeup-blush-oil-review/#comments Thu, 08 Jun 2017 21:00:40 +0000 http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/?p=213832 Take Me With You, Milk Makeup Blush Oil!

Travel makeup bag, meet the Milk Makeup Blush Oils, otherwise known as “convenience in tube.”

These are so cool! They have the same click-pen packaging as Milk’s Sunshine Tint. There’s a clicker on one side and a roller ball on the other, and inside is a liquid blush oil that looks pigmented in the swatches below (I went a little cray-cray drawing the rose designs, whoopsies), but once it’s blended in, it looks effortless and natural.

In the picture below, I’m wearing the shade called Flush, which is a bright coral pink in the tube…

It looks like a grandma walked up to me and pinched the life out of my cheeks, then covered me with kisses and walked away! πŸ™‚

Ingredients:
Water/aqua, glycerin, ethylhexyl palmitate, butylene glycol, dimethicone PEG-7 phosphate, poly(glycol adipate)/bis-hydroxyethoxypropyl dimethicone copolymer, acrylates crosspolymer, tocopherol, tocopheryl acetate, tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, tremella fuciformis sporocarp extract, phospholipids, hydrogenated lecithin, saccharomyces/copper ferment, saccharomyces/silicon ferment, saccharomyces/zinc ferment, saccharomyces/iron ferment, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, sea salt extract, saccharomyces/magnesium ferment, citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) peel oil, vitis vinifera (grape) seed oil, prunus armeniaca (apricot) kernel oil, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) oil, enteromorpha compressa extract, cellulose gum, nylon-12, sodium hyaluronate, sodium anisate, pentylene glycol, stearoyl inulin, boron nitrate, lauroyl lysine, octyldodecyl neopentanoate, Octyldodecanol, polysorbate 60, sodium polyacrylate, carbomer, xanthan gum, simethicone, sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer, sodium levulinate, hexylene glycol, propanediol, betaine, sodium hydroxide, sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate, disodium EDTA, ethylhexylglycerin, caprylyl glycol, phenoxyethanol May contain: mica, titanium dioxide, iron oxides, manganese violet, bismuth oxychloride, chromium hydroxide green, chromium oxide green, carmine, ultramarines, ferric ferrocyanide, red 6, red 7 lake, red 21, red 27, red 28 lake, red 30 lake, red 33 lake, yellow 5 lake, yellow 6 lake, blue 1 lake

The Lust List, Vol. 12: Stuff I Kinda Want http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/just-for-fun/lust-list-vol-12-stuff-kinda-want/ http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/just-for-fun/lust-list-vol-12-stuff-kinda-want/#comments Tue, 06 Jun 2017 21:00:39 +0000 http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/?p=213718 The Lust List, Vol. 12: Stuff I Kinda Want

I realize that there’s absolutely NOTHING lust-inducing about makeup remover. Nothing. But sometimes you just gotta take a break from all the schmexy makeup dreams (I’m talking to you, Charlotte Tilbury), and put stuff on your lust list that, ya know, you actually need.

On that note…

  1. R+Co Analog Cleansing Foam Conditioner ($29) — La, la, la! Don’t mind me as I fall deeper into the hole that is my current R+Co obsession! Analog is the brand’s approach to conditioner washing. Technically, it’s called a cleansing foam conditioner, so I’m assuming that it’s light, fluffy and mousse-y. And if it’s anything like the other R+Co products I’ve tried and have fallen head over heels for, it’s probably all sorts of amazing and smells divine.
  2. Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Powder in Golden Glow ($56) — Even though I don’t need another highlighter AT ALL, this one by Dior looks like perfection.
  3. SEPHORA COLLECTION Lavender Foot Mask ($5) — Why? Because I looked down the other day and saw Fred Flintstone’s feet. πŸ™
  4. Bioderma Sensibio Make-up Removing Micelle Solution ($14.50) and H2O Wipes ($9.90) — Completely not sexy at all, but I’m running dangerously low on liquid eye makeup remover and makeup wipes.

Take Me With You, Milk Makeup Sunshine Skin Tint SPF 30! http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/milk-makeup/milk-makeup-sunshine-skin-tint-spf-30/ http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/milk-makeup/milk-makeup-sunshine-skin-tint-spf-30/#comments Tue, 06 Jun 2017 00:34:24 +0000 http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/?p=213714 Take Me With You, Milk Makeup Sunshine Skin Tint SPF 30!

How cool would it be if when you went to Sephora to check out Milk Makeup Sunshine Skin Tint, they handed you a milkshake just for showing up?

I would find that HIGHLY motivating, LOL! As if I need extra motivation to check out makeup…

Anyway, I’ve been thinking about this trip I took once. I brought a tube of tinted moisturizer with me, but it exploded all over everything in my bag because the top came loose.

That probably wouldn’t have happened with Milk Makeup Sunshine Skin Tint.

It has a pen clicker at the bottom. When you click it, the foundation comes up through the tube and out the roller ball applicator on the other end.

You use the roller ball to spread the tint all over your face, then blend it in with your fingers.

It’s fun AND cool. Plus, it’s very unlikely to leak foundation all over your stuff.

Milk Makeup is an American cruelty-free brand that’s been on the makeup scene about a year or two. As far as I know, their products don’t contain any actual milk, though. Unless you count coconut milk.

Drugstore Needs and Nopes, Vol. 3 http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/cosmetics/drugstore-needs-nopes-vol-3/ http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/cosmetics/drugstore-needs-nopes-vol-3/#comments Fri, 02 Jun 2017 13:00:45 +0000 http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/?p=213592 Drugstore Needs and Nopes, Vol. 3

1. Yes To Liquid Hand Soap ($3.99 each)

I’m the weirdo who washes her hands about, oh, let’s see… 20 times a day? I’m so not kidding, either. And I’m REALLY picky about my hand soaps, but I thoroughly plan to love the dickens out of this bottle of Yes to Liquid Hand Soap because it doesn’t dry out my skin, even when I wash my hands hella times.

Also, the Marula Oil Mango var-eh-TAY smells like marvelous mangoes, but here’s the thing: it doesn’t smell fake, which is important if you wash your hands as much as I do, because, as you know, it’s nice to have a yummy fragrance waft up into yo’ nose.

It removes dirt, oils and all manner of baby goo, and it easily rinses off and doesn’t leave behind an annoying residue.

VERDICT: Need!

Yes To Liquid Hand Soap ingredients
Water (Aqua), Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Coco-Sulfate, Glycerin, Sclerocarya Birrea (Marula) Seed Oil, Mangivera Indica (Mango) Fruit Extract, Glyceryl Caprylate, Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate, Sodium Chloride, Glyceryl Undecylenate, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance (Parfum), Benzyl Benzoate, Hexyl Cinnamal Linalool
