Setting spray:
This is the big bad boss. The boss on top of fix +, UD setting spray & other leading sprays that are glycerin based.
What we all fail to realize when it comes to products that are popular and expensive, is to look at the main ingredients of the magical potions we call setting sprays.
Want to know the secret in these vials? GLYCERIN!!! Glycerin is a natural ingredient that is already in our skin it helps protect our outer skin layer as well as prevent dryness and scaling of the skin. It also helps trap moisture on your skin just like the post i made regarding hylaronic acid.
Glycerin helps to make foundation and products you apply on your face stick and set.
Why would you want glycerin for your makeup? Because it will make your makeup stick and stay seamlessly on your skin as well as not smudge when you spray it before applying your foundation. It helps the oils and sweat through out the day not mess up your makeup and it sets it in place when you spray it on your makeup to set it.
This spray from heritage store I recommend because it's literally just like all the popular setting sprays we use and only costs $6.00 while macs fix + costs $24.00, UrbanDecay costs $28.00 & smashbox primer water $35.00. I have used all mentioned and like them, but I will always stick to this one.
You do the math... This can be purchased at your local health emporiums, organic/health supermarkets, Amazon, eBay & fairway.

I highly recommend this product if you want to save money and have a great setting spray and it smells good too since it contains rosewater and it is a natural refresher that is good for your skin especially when it is irritated. * TIP: AFTER I BAKE PN CERTAIN AREAS OF MY FACE I REMOVE THE POWDER BUT IN OTHERS I LEAVE IT AND THEN SPRAY MY FACE TO LET THE BAKING POWDER SINK IN OR I WET A BEAUTY BLENDER AND THEN DAB IN THE POWDER TO MAKE IT MELT AND SET MY MAKEUP. I ALSO USE THIS TO MAKE MY HIGHLIGHTS POP AND BEFORE MAKEUP APPLICATION. I RECOMMEND LETTING THE PRODUCT BE ABSORBED 10 MINS BEFORE FOUNDATION APPLICATION BECAUSE THE SKIN NEEDS TIME TO ABSORB MOISTURIZERS AND PRODUCTS *

I'm an Aries so we are independent and impulsive. We are straightforward and tell you it like it is. So expect blunt honest truths from us and we sugar coat nothing. We enjoy debating about our beliefs and back up our information with facts but we can get heated and we can be stubborn. We are very competitive and love a challenge that's why our lives are hectic and we have 1,000 things to do all the time. Mars, our ruler, is in its low energy set – a planet of aggression. It is easy to assume that Aries women or men aren’t very emotional because we are impatient and don't like stupidity. We are super sweet and supportive but we can be dominant. Aries women are awesome because we take all of our flaws and put it to great use. But, don't tick us off, don't play with our intelligence and don't try to push something on us that we aren't comfortable with like rushing into a relationship or any of those sorts. Sometimes we are hard to understand. ♈️ But I want to know which signs you think are bad based on your experience?

Girls you better make that wing sharp 🗡

My favorite baking powder happens to be super affordable and works perfectly.

I have been using the RCMA no color powder for baking/setting my makeup for about 3 years. It is amazing and I have always found myself going back to this powder over any setting powder in the market. RCMA specializes in high pigmentation makeup of about 50 which foundations have about 10-20 pigmentation intensity which means the coverage.
RCMA no color powder
1. It doesn't leave a white cast
2. It is finely milled
3. It does not change the color of your foundation so when you set it won't be noticeable that you baked.
4. Translucent veil
5. Helps brighten highlight areas
6.no creasing
7. No flashback
8. It has alantoin so it's not chalky
9. Works with every skin tone
10. No fillers or pigment
It can be purchased at the Alcone Manhattan location for 3oz $11 or 10oz for $20!! Now listen to this. The Laura Mercier translucent powder is amazing as well but not as good as the RCMA no color powder. The translucent powder changes the color of your foundation making it look way lighter even though it's the translucent formula. On top of that, the Laura Mercier Translucent powder is $37.00 at Sephora for ONLY 1OZ!!!!!! That means you are paying for $37.00 for an Ounce of makeup. Just to have 3 Ozs of the Translucent powder you would pay $111.00 of your hard earned money when you can pay for the RCMA no color powder of 3 OZ $10......... Guys you are literally fueling the crazy consumption of over pricing products that are just fillers and powders at the end of the day!!!! Seriously pay attention and research before you purchase any product. Buy this setting powder over any powder on the market you Will be very happy with getting a great quality product and saving money for what the price SHOULD BE ON A PRODUCT!!!! And for everyone raving about this product now when it has been in the market for years.... I can't believe you guys.......... It takes "famous makeup gurus" for you people to realize what's on the market and have all these makeup brands rip you off when there are better options on the market that are cheaper because they are from wholesale sites... Unbelievable......

ASL Nighttime Skincare Routine

@patchology Restoring night eye gels (brightens, treats undereye dark circles and helps reduce appearance of wrinkles)
@skederm.inc Snail Serum with Hyaluronic acid IS CRUELTY FREE, PARABEN FREE, SULFATE FREE ETC! ( sale on the serum is 50% using Amazon Promo code SSERUM4U)
Hyaluronic acid is actually a natural structural component of skin, and, in fact, is present in connective tissue throughout the human body.
Why am I recommending this to you?
It’s considered to have a greater capacity to hold moisture than any other natural or synthetic polymer. In fact, one gram of hyaluronic acid is able to hold up to six liters of water. So imagine making your own product that is 100% pure and will give you maximum benefits... I care and know the struggles of having problematic skin or being extremely dry since I've been taking Isotretinoin.
Wrinkles, fine lines and even acne is triggered by dry skin so the benefits of hylaronic are immense. It's great for everyone and individuals who suffer from rosacea because they need to ensure that their skin is always moisturized to prevent redness and triggers of rashes since its a type of dermatitis.
Hyaluronic acid can improve your skin’s moisture content and at the same time strengthen skin’s barrier; that is, the outer layers of your skin. A healthy barrier looks and feels softer, smoother, and plumper—all hallmarks of younger-looking skin! But, with hyaluronic acid, that’s not all you get—there are many additional benefits beyond just a more youthful appearance.

Its lightweight texture isn’t an issue for oily skin, and it’s gentle enough that it isn’t a problem for sensitive skin.
Thank you both @skederm.inc & @patchology for these awesome products complimentary for reviewing purposes.
My review is 100% my honest opinion.
