With my normal to oily skin, I use my Skin79 Hot Pink BB Cream in the Summer, but use mostly cushion compacts in the Winter because cushion compacts are more moisturizing to me. I’ve tried the IOPE Air Cushion Compact and really loved it, so I wanted more.
The Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion is a pretty well known product in the k-beauty world. It seems that people either love it or they don’t care for it. I received a deluxe sample of it a while back (enough for a few weeks’ worth or applications) and felt ready to share my views on it.
Well, I’ve reached this point.
Starting now, I will be embarking on a three month long no-buy of skin care and makeup products. Admittedly, I bought some things in “preparation” for this drought period, but hey… it’s the effort, right?
At the beginning of the new year I decided that I wanted to bring a series to the blog. I love doing review and haul posts, but I wanted a little more regularity to add in to the content. I love reading bloggers’ posts about monthly empties, hauls, and the like, but the one thing I really love to read is about their favorite products of the month.
I blog mostly about beauty products, which was obviously intended, but I have found that I like blogging about lifestyle topics, too. So, with my new series, I’ve decided to Read more
In the past I was the person with single eyeshadows… maybe duos at best. I was never a palette girl. I mean, what do you do with that may eyeshadows??
Well, here I am, about to gush to you about how much I absolutely love this palette. Strap yourselves in ladies and gents.
On a recent order for a fresh batch of makeup and skin care, I purchased the Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips Talk in BE106. Admittedly, I didn’t need a new lipstick–I have a collection in my bag already–but I’d read such great reviews that I had to try it myself.
Spoilers: I may be in love.
I’ve been nominated not once, but twice for The Beauty Blogger Award! Once was by Just Being Julz and the other was by All About Leanne. Each time I’m nominated for one of these blogger awards, I’m so happy and flattered that my little blog is getting recognition from other bloggers. I may not be able to do every single one, but I try my best!
The rules for The Beauty Bloggers Award are to answer the questions given, nominate 10 other beauty or fashion bloggers, and give them questions. Read more
2015 was definitely a whirlwind of a year for me personally. The 2015 Spring semester of college seems like it was ages ago. Some great and likewise not-so-great things happened this year, but I try to continue with the thought that everything happens for a reason.
2015 was also the year that I decided to try blogging. I went into it with the intentions of just having a little place to put my thoughts down, but a few hundred followers later and I’m in awe. I really can’t believe that so many people think that my blog is interesting enough to subscribe to. I’m truly thankful for each one of you and hope that I can make The Pretty Pomegranate even better and brighter in the new year.
I wish you all the very best and will see you in 2016!
Let’s get social!
I’ll be honest and say that it wasn’t until recently that I even considered using a separate product to remove my eye makeup. A couple of years ago my routine consisted of one cleanser (quick, rough swipes… eek!) and slapping on whatever moisturizer was cheapest at the drug store.
My, how times have changed.
Now that my makeup stash has been growing and I’ve been enjoying playing with new looks and products, I needed something more to remove my makeup. I’ll admit, I bought this product solely because it wasn’t very expensive. I hadn’t seen too many reviews and really just wanted to throw one in my virtual shopping cart and be done.
I still haven’t found the perfect combination of skin care products that make my skin look and feel flawless. Who knows if that combination is even out there but, until then, I’ll just enjoy the adventure.
While I wait that out, I’m resorting to good quality makeup products to help my skin out a little. Up until recently I had been using a liquid Maybelline concealer. It wasn’t bad, but just not enough to cover blemishes and spots.
After some searching online, I came across The Saem’s Cover Perfection Tip Concealer.
There’s no questioning that Urban Decay’s All Nighter Setting Spray is one of the top dogs. I used it for my wedding a few years ago and my makeup didn’t budge from about 10am to well past midnight–an amazing feat with my oily skin.
But with my wallet’s recent depression, I needed a cheaper alternative to UD’s miracle potion. I had seen reviews online that L’Oreal’s Infallible was a good dupe for the UD spray and at only about $15 I couldn’t resist giving it a go myself.
