πŸ’„Makeup Monday πŸ’„

Today on the blog sharing my #makeupreview of the New New #coverfxpowerplay foundation! I have had it for a couple of weeks and was unsure of how I felt as it wasn't full coverage and felt like medium coverage! Overall I like it as it has a buildable formula and actually was the perfect color pigment for me which was really impressive! Also couldn't get over the powder it looked like 🍫 Cocoa Powder πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I personally was looking for a good powder to try as I actually don't usually use powder as I have dry skin and not the oily type and I was impressed with the formula.

I use the powder as a setting powder and it works pretty good. Great for people with oily skin as well! 

In regards to the full coverage claim that was the reason I was hesitant to do my review as it isn't FULL coverage but rather medium! It's super light weight which is PERFECT for summer! I use it in combo with my full coverage foundation from EstΓ©e Lauder in a lighter shade! 

Overall I would recommend the product as long as you know it's medium coverage and you choose the correct shade! There are 40 shades so there is a high chance you will choose the correct one!

Also want to mention that I got this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. By receiving the item complimentary it does not mean these opinions are not my own! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Til next time,

Peace& Love,

#Makeup Monday

For today's post, I'm going over an easy 5 step recipe to make a brown sugar face/body scrub! As I have sensitive skin I was on the lookout for an organic option and I found one below: 

Homemade Brown Sugar Face Scrub

Cup of Brown Sugar
Teaspoon Extra Virgin Coconut Oil(Solid Version)
8-10 ct of Blueberries
Small Mason Jars- I personally like the Ball brand! It's great quality and some come with lids! 
A teaspoon of Vanilla Extra
Bowl or Plastic Bags

1. Crush blueberries (blend them if possible) into small pieces. The smaller they ate the easier it is to mix with the scrub! Save the juice and skin of the blueberries as it's healthy for your skin. Blueberries are full of antioxidants which are great for your skin!

2. Add the Brown Sugar!! (Brown sugar is a great exfoliant for people that have sensitive skin! I personally have sensitive skin and it's better to use this instead of salts.

3. Add the vanilla extract and coconut oil to the mixture.  The vanilla extract is good for keeping your skin young looking and is also full of antioxidants and heals/ soothes your skin! And it smells tasty! While the extra virgin coconut oil helps as it's antifungal & antibacterial while being a great moisturizer!
4. Add more brown sugar if needed to make the scrub more scrub-like!
5. Voila, you're done! Slather away!! * Make sure you store in an airtight container once done!* 

I personally like this scrub as it smells sooo good! It was hard for me not to eat it considering all of the ingredients were organic and edible! 
This will assist you tremendously if you have sensitive skin like me as it will exfoliate while moisturizing your skin!
Hope Y'all liked today's post as it was super fun to do! Seriously couldn't believe how easy it was to make using food in my pantry!
