Make Up For Ever - Mist & Fix

Wednesday, March 18, 2015

Recently I was given a sample of Make Up For Ever's Mist & Fix to try. I have been a HUGE fan of all things Make Up Forever. From their Black Ink Liner, to their Artisan Brush Collection, to their HD Foundation and Kit. I was absolutely thrilled to try their Mist and Fix and use it with my daily makeup application routine.
As someone who walks to work daily, the elements are always, if not harshly exposed to my skin. Whether its the blistering cold, the wind, and damp (early) spring days, I was really looking forward to something that would keep my makeup in place.
I was however a bit disappointed in this formula. For one thing, after three days of wearing the Mist & Fix, I did notice my skin started to break out. The formula is suposedly ideal for all skin types, but i have to say that it wasn't doing mine any favours. :(

PROS:
Alcohol Free
Light
Price $34.00 for the large bottle, $14.00 for a travel side (available at Sephora)
Did not feel sticky
Dried quickly
Dermatologist-tested

CONS:
Made me break out (I have sensitive skin)
Did not last the 12 hours I was hoping it would
Did not see much of a difference

Have you tried Make Up For Ever's Mist and Fix? What are your impressions?

Too Much of a Good Thing

Thursday, February 19, 2015

Oftentimes I look back at outfit posts and wonder...why? Just like everyone else I am prone to making some fashion blunders along the way. This outfit was it for me. Too. Much. Purple. Don;t even get me started on the blazer. Some days, we can hit it right on the nose...other times, it can be too much of a good thing.
