Tuesday Beauty: Transform Your Skin
I have to say that I was almost ready to give up on Birchbox. While I have found a number of great products by way of the box, I was disappointed recently with the samples I'd been receiving. They just weren't doing it for me. I thought this month looked like another disappointment. I almost threw this Skin Transformer out, because, let's be honest, I am a sucker for packaging, and I was not impressed with this packaging, but I figured, hey, why not give it a go? When I first squirted it into my fingers, I was skeptical. It was very sparkly and looked rather dark for my uber pale skin. But, I put a thin layer over my entire face (as it is a sunscreen and says it can be used like a primer). Alone, it did look quite sparkly. I then layered my usual foundation, Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, over the base layer. Wow! My skin looked dewy and glowly. While the shimmer was too much on its own, it looked lovely under a light foundation. I have been wanting to find an illuminator to mix into my foundation, and this might just be it. Now I may be a believer in the box again...particularly because this new makeup lust is only available through Birchbox. My husband even commented on my skin that day...this stuff works.
