It’s time for Volume II of Reviews Revisited, and I’m going to talk about some of the products I wrote positive reviews about and now – after using them for a while – still adore. Everything in this post is highly recommended.
First up, Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream, first reviewed here. I’ve almost finished the pictured mini size tubes, and probably would have finished them had I not purchased & started using the full size ones. I’m saving the minis for travel, because they’re so small / lightweight and a perfect everyday base. I love Missha Perfect Cover for everyday use, because it manages to look very natural, but still cover the redness in my skin quite well.
I wear it all year long, but I’ve been especially loving it this winter when my skin is drier. I tend to wear sunscreen under it these days, but I still appreciate that it contains an all-physical SPF 42 PA+++ since a little extra protection doesn’t hurt (and physical sunscreen can be layered with other physical or chemical sunscreens). At around $12 – $15 for 1.7oz, it’s also one of the least expensive bases I own.
Next, the Wet n Wild Fergie Perfect Pout lipsticks. A detailed review of one shade is here, and I have swatches of the seven shades pictured above here. I really like the formula of these, and I’m suprised that more people don’t write about them. I find that the Perfect Pout lipsticks aren’t drying (though not moisturizing either) and are very long lasting – several hours, plus a lingering, evenly-fading stain. The colors are also fantastic. My favorite, Ferguson Crest Cabernet is pretty much identical to MAC Rebel – which is popular for a reason! – and Bebot Love is a lovely nude.
And finally, let’s go way back into the archives to revisit Guerlain Chamade Rouge Automatic lipstick. As I said in the post, I love the color, the finish, and the formula – the only thing that’s not great is the price!
p.s. I’m leaving town tonight (for my honeymoon!) and will be back on January 7th. I’ve scheduled several posts, but I may be very slow to approve/ respond to comments, as I expect to have only sporadic internet access.
