What New Products Are You Experimenting With?

June 4, 2009

One of the main reasons that I blog, other than the fact that it allows me to interact with some amazing individuals like you my readers, is that it gives me an excuse to play with new products all the time. Thanks to all the Armani samples Nicole sent me, I was like a kid in a candystore this morning!

So I started off with Armani’s Light master Primer ($55), which was nothing like what I was expecting. It has the consistency of a light liquid luminizer, and is supposed to create a mirror-like veil for the skin by reflecting light just so.

Next came Armani’s new Lasting Silk UV Foundation SPF 20 in Shade 2 ($58) which I’ve seriously been dying to get my hands on. The SPF in this has been micronised in such a way that it won’t reflect back during flash photography (meaning no Edward Cullen-esque white face), and it touts a revolutionary new water-based foundation provides 14-hour luminous matte coverage without the coverage feel.

This is my first day using this so I can’t say much about it, but I am loving the way my skin looks today. I was able to achieve a flawless complexion with minimal foundation and my pores aren’t as prominent as they have been as of late. And best of all, I feel like I’m not wearing any makeup.

I topped the foundation off with Armani’s Micro-Fil Loose Powder in Shade 0 ($48) to matify everything and keep the oilies at bay. I didn’t have adequate time to really feel this out, but the powder seems to have a gorgeous, super-finely milled feel to it and looks great on.

And of course I had to wear my new La Mer The Lip Balm ($45)! Anybody who knows me knows that I can’t resist La Mer. I’m loving the minty taste and how soft, supple and plump my lips are looking.

So what new products have been been testing out lately?
