Happy Monday everyone! Hope you had a great weekend and those up north are staying warm.🔥☀️
I’m sharing today two more products from @lock.color cutest box! 😍 If interested keep reading down below.👇🏻
Lock it Good Water Gel Primer and Lock it Good Boundation in the color 3 Soft Beige. .
First thing I have to mention is the beautiful artful packaging. Being a New York native myself, I love how the company for this collection, embodied the energy and liveliness of New York City’s beautiful skysline. Loveeee!
The Primer has a silky formula that provides seamless and long wear benefits for clump-free, even skin without the need for touch-ups.
It fills in lines and enlarged pores while controlling excess sebum and sweat. Feels moisturizing during application and it has a soapy scent to it which reminds me a lot of Not Pore Blem Primer by Touch in Sol, however, this one is less strong. The main ingredients are Silica, Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen, and Tocopherol.
I like how amazing it feels on the skin, controls my sebum, and fills in my fine lines nicely. Thumbs 👍🏻
The foundation is actually two in one, a BB cream + Foundation. It has a smooth and silky texture that dries up to a matte natural finish. I would say it gives a low to medium coverage but it’s definitely buildable. (Swipe to the end for video) Smells like your typical foundation and it does a good job at covering blemishes. Comes in 12 different shades and the shade I tried was a pretty good match to my natural skin tone which is rare.
The only downside (at least for me) is that it contains Witch Hazel. Some people with rosacea might say that Witch Hazel actually helps soothe their skin but it actually irritates and triggers mine. ☹️ But if you have normal to oily skin, this a a great cream specially if you’re looking for that natural finish. The other key ingredients include: Hyaluronic Acid, Ceramide, and Collagen. .

Сегодня проведём баттл двух моих фаворитов-консилеров: @maybelline Instant Anti-Age этого года, и «старичка» Fit me. Кто победит? 😉 ✔️Покрытие – Fit Me однозначно плотнее, и соответственно все синяки скрывает лучше. Тем не менее, оба продукта можно наслаивать (на свотчах верхний – Anti-Age, оба в самых светлых оттенках). 1 – 0.
✔️Стойкость – у обоих отличная, как правило я всегда фиксирую пудрой, ни один из них не забивается в складки и хорошо держится в течение дня. 2 – 1.
✔️Комфорт – Instant Anti-Age кажется в целом приятнее из-за более легкой текстуры, его также проще распределить. 2-2.
✔️Сухость – здесь могу сказать, что если у вас сухая кожа под глазами, возможно Fit Me будет слишком тугим. Он достаточно хорошо распределяется, но эффекта практически увлажнения как у Anti-Age у него нет. 2 – 3.
Итог: думаю, здесь нет очевидного победителя, и если вам нравятся более плотные консилеры – стоит брать первый вариант, если же вы как и я склоняетесь в сторону легких текстур – берите мой фаворит Anti-Age 😉
Oggi facciamo una battle tra due miei favoriti correttori – Maybelline Instant Anti-Age di quest’anno, e il «vecchio» Fit Me. Chi vincerà? 😉 ✔️Coprenza – Fit Me è molto più denso, quindi nasconde meglio tutte le imperfezioni però direi che entrambi si stratificano bene (nella foto sopra è Anti-Age, in colori chiari). 1 – 0.
✔️Durevolezza – entrambi ottimi, di solito io sempre uso il powder dopo, stanno bene durante il giorno. 2 – 1.
✔️Comfort – Instant Anti-Age sembra meglio riguardo alla texture, è più facile da sfumare. 2 – 2. ✔️Secchezza – posso dire che se avete la pelle secca, può essere che Fit Me sarà troppo denso. Si sfuma abbastanza bene, però non ha l’effetto quasi idratante come Anti-Age. 2 – 3.
Conclusione: penso di non aver trovato proprio un vincitore. Se vi piacciono più le texture opache potete prendere Fit Me, se come a me vi piacciono le texture più leggere prendete il mio preferito di 2018 Anti-Age 😉
As great as today is for what MLK Jr. has accomplished I want to shed light on something just as equally important and maybe if I didn’t know what it was like to suffer mentally with no one to turn to, I would not feel as strongly as I do today but I have experienced such trauma so I am going to use my voice to advocate.... •
This picture was taking exactly today 4 years ago (thanks Facebook memories🤦🏽♀️😂)
I’ve been thinking about #bluemonday and I want to do something for #mentalhealthawareness and this morning after my time with God 🙏🏼 I got on Facebook & this picture was the first thing I saw 🤧 •
So, Mental health is extremely deceptive to the human eye because by looking at this picture it seem as if all was good, I even look as if I was at peace. But truth be told at this time in my life I was in the fight of my life at the age of 23 I was suffering with audio and visual hallucinations. In 2013 my life changed drastically one day and for years I would suffer mentally and a way I never thought I would ever (something that was foreign to where I grew up) •
But it happened & it happened to me. I know first hand what it’s like to not be able to think on your own, to be at war 24 hrs a day in your mind because that’s what it is like for those battling schizophrenia •
I was diagnosed with schizophrenia and I tried to tell God I was ok with it But can I be honest with you guys I was not ok with it because I knew that I loved God and he could heal me. That he could do it for me and that I could get better. (Testimony: I have been free from audio and visual hallucinations for going on 3 years and free of medication also. I trust god & I believe his report 2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind 🙏🏼❤️ #blackmentalhealth#trustgod#trusttheprocess#makeupformentalhealth
