Review of Laura Mercier vs Smashbox BB Cream

So it has been a week or longer since I posted that I was trying the Laura Mercier and Smashbox BB Cream foundations and I told you all that when I figured out which one I liked I would give a review. I really liked and have chosen on my new payday to get the Laura Mercier foundation now since there are a lot of reviews out there about this item I am going to review the Smashbox Cream instead.

I really liked this product a lot and I probably will end up buying it in the future; however, there are a few flaws about it that I felt I need to talk about along with the positives. First, I really like how light it feels on your skin; however, this comes with the price of lacking coverage. I think that it covered more then a tinted moisturizer and felt lighter then one; however, I think that I want a fuller coverage at this time. Another good point about the BB Cream is that it supposedly has a lot of benefits for your skin and to be honest I really did feel that my skin was smoother and softer after using it. However, I really think that my skin is too oily to use with something like that at the moment and until I get my skin under control I am going to stick with the Laura Mercier.

If you all would like to see comparison pictures of the two foundations on and off let me know?!

I am in L O V E...LOVE!!!

Hey everyone sorry about the lacking posts lately but I am finally back at school where I can post more often and hopefully start making more videos. I moved so my lighting is somewhat better, but we will find out if I try to make a video soon! Anyways as the name of the post says I am in LOVE and with several different products, scandalous! I am madly in love with NARS bronzer in Laguna and I know that this product isn't very new to people but I finally took the plunge and spent the money to purchase it. I can't believe it took me this long to buy it because it is amazing! I swear it would look good on probably any skin type and it is not to shimmery which I like because I am not a huge fan of really shimmery or matte bronzers.

Another product I am in love with is my new coastal scents 88 original palette that I got for Christmas. I use it everyday along with my MAC paint pot in painterly and my fav shadow in tapestry taupe. I have seriously fallen even more in love with makeup and I am currently using some samples I got of the Laura Mercier Silk Cream Foundation and Smashbox's BB cream to see which I like best and would like to buy with my next paycheck.

So far Laura is winning but I also really like Smashbox! I will keep you all updated on how they feel, how long they last, coverage, and things like that. I know that Laura Mercier has been around a while so most of you might know a lot about it, but Smashbox BB Cream is newer and I haven't seen a whole lot about it yet. Well anyways I hope you lovely people have a great day and night!!
