I’m back. After about a year of testing products and falling in and out of love with what was being produced, I’ve come back with a list of favorites that I keep replacing and some seriously killer seasonal gems. Read More

Hey, hey, hey. I hope you have been enjoying the awesome month that is October. This week, I’ll be focusing on everything that is foundations + primers and everything in between.
Well, last month I started a wonderful new job. But with this new job comes two 54 minute commutes (yes I timed it) that includes a 15 minute walk in midtown Manhattan, complete with exhaust + humanity. Also included is 8.5 hours spent in recirculated air under unforgiving florescent lighting. Its taken its toll. By noon I look fine, by 2pm I look as expected, but by 5:30 I look like I haven’t slept in a week or eaten anything but processed food, neither of which is the case. I’ve tested five foundations, six primers, two concealers and three setting powders in the last month. Stay tuned to find out which ones worked and which ones failed under these extreme urban conditions!

I’ve been really loyal for the last year to the same foundation, Vapour Organic Atmosphere Luminous Foundation. It totally broke me of my love for Laura Mercier’s Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer. I love that its organic, safe, and in an easy to use and transport stick and the coverage was great, let my skin breathe and did not cause dreaded breakouts. But, I kept hearing chatter about Jouer Matte Moisture Tint and I was curious. While I never got a sample in my BirchBox, when I accumulated some points through Birchbox I knew it was time to pull the trigger.

A lot of natural and safe foundations are loose mineral foundations. I have not had good times with mineral foundations, they really settle into lines, and they are a pain to carry around (no touch ups which I knew that would not jive with my easy routine I like to take on the go) so Vapor won out over a few other companies.
