Review: Revlon PhotoReady Perfecting Primer



Price: $12.99

I’ve been using this product daily for about 3 weeks now and I like this considering the fact that it is a drugstore primer. However, I do think it is a bit pricey to be a drugstore primer. I use primers to help control oil in my T-Zone and under my eyes(I get VERY OILY). It definitely helps to control the oil. I have tried it under foundation, concealer, and a TM (tinted moisturizer). it works just fine under all of them. It smoothes out my skin and makes my foundation, concealer, and TM glide on a lot easier and smoother. I didn’t think the product was ridiculously thick. It doesn’t have a horrible smell and it is pretty moisturizing for my skin type. It doesn’t dry to fast but I usually don’t spend 10 minutes applying primer anyways. Lately, I have been applying this right after I cleanse my face and then I apply my NARS Tinted Moisturizer on top. Even after 5 hours, everything still looks great. You get a lot of product so it will definitely last you a while. Overall, I like this product (not loving the price). I’m giving it a 3.5 out of 5.

Beauty Tip #1: DIY Lip Scrub



I personally have very dry lips. I always seem to have a lot of skin on my lips that peel and make my lips look horrible. We all want sexy looking lips. So what do I do to keep my lips looking and feeling smooth throughout the seasons……a sugar scrub. 

What you’ll need:

1 tsp of Olive Oil (whatever kind in your cabinet)

1 tsp of white granulated sugar

1 soft or medium toothbrush (whatever your preference)

You can add or subtract as you want. 

Now add the scrub to your toothbrush and gently scrub those lips. I have to do this about 2 times a week. Let me know if this tip helps 🙂
