I've always wanted to take some gritty, smoking photos and Erica's husband just so happens to be a smoker with a gritty beard.  Erica styled my garage for the photo shoot and we thankfully didn't have to use an entire pack of cigarettes to get our shots.  Thanks Mike.


Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer Review

26 March 2015

Too Faced released a new primer at the beginning of the year called Hangover Replenishing Primer. They state that this primer hydrates, smooths and brightens skin for a dewy, healthy looking finish. The primer accomplishes this as it is infused with coconut water, a probiotic based ingredient, and skin revivers which work in sync to replenish the skin.

After reading about this primer and being on the hunt for a new primer, I decided to take the plunge. I've been using this primer everyday since I purchased it and unfortunately I haven't seen a difference. I love the feel of this primer on my skin and the smell from the coconut water is a nice change but I feel that it really falls short for being a primer and that it can almost be more of a moisturizer. With that being said, I feel that it would be great for those who have dry skin as it  can hydrate. For those who have oily skin, like myself, you may want to stick to using primers like Smashbox's Photo Finish Primer. 

If I had to rate the Hangover Replishing Primer, I would probably give it a 3 out of 5 stars. It's great to prep the skin before make-up application but it doesn't really offer the staying power that I look for when using a primer. 

Happy Sunday!!

Here's a sneak peek at a photo shoot we did a few weeks ago.  I'll have the rest of the photos posted later this week.  I hope you had a great weekend!
