MAC Prolong Wear NC 25



I love MAC Mineralized Foundation in shade NC 25 as it provides me that beautiful dewy coverage and I thought that  MAC Prolong wear foundation will also impress me but sadly it didn’t win my heart.
Product Claim:
comfortable, long-wearing foundation that gives up to 15 hours of wear
in any environmental condition. Lightweight and creamy, applies and
blends easily leaving the skin feeling soft and free to breathe all day
while controlling oil. Specially treated micronized pigments help give a
smoother, more flawless, natural finish with stay-true color.
My Experience:
I love the packaging of this foundation too its similar to MAC Mineralized Foundation, I purchased this one because I have combination (normal to oily) skin and thought this one would work better on my oily t zones and would give me better coverage.  Prolong Wear is soft, smooth and it glides on perfectly and its very comfortable to wear. But I have issues with its coverage as it provides me medium to sheer coverage which I didn’t expect. The foundation stays put for really good period of time and provides matte finish.

If you want to purchase it for yourself get it from any MAC counter for $34 or in Pakistan you can get it from MAC Addict  for PKR4000. In saudia I got my Mac Mineralized foundation for SR 194 from Abraj Al bait Clock Tower Makkah.

Murad Oil Control Mattifier

Murad Oil Control Mattifier
Hello My Gorgeous Readers
I believe you have been well and today I have a review of Murad Oil Control Mattifier with SPF15  for you guys. It claims to protect skin while providing all day oil control.

What it is:
A shine-reducing moisturizer that controls oil for up to eight hours, decreases breakouts, and protects skin.

What it is formulated to do:
Oil-Control Mattifier
reduces shine on contact and is clinically proven to control oil for up
to eight hours while effectively reducing breakouts. It immediately
mattifies, regulating oil throughout the day, and prevents sun damage by
delivering powerful UVA/UVB sun protection. It is ideal for acne-prone
skin and is recommended as a step three moisturizer in any Murad acne
regimen, while eliminating surface shine and reducing breakouts as part
of Dr. Murad’s Inclusive Health® system of care. 

My Experience:
I purchased this deluxe sample of the product to try and test it before spending large amount on the full sized product. It a part of Murad Acne solution kit and comes in little white tube. The texture of Murad Oil Control Mattifier is a bit thick and gluey may be that’s the reason its a bit difficult to spread. Once its spread properly it works like a charm it keeps my Oily T-Zone matte for very good period of time sometimes I just use it as a moisturizer and it works fine. It has some sort of weird smell to it but it does not bother me at all.  Over all its one great product for maintaining oil control and acne problems.

Its a bit expensive $40 for 1.7OZ and can be purchased from Sephora tell me have you tried this one?

NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Alaska

NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Alaska

Hello Gorgeous Readers! I believe you have been well Today you will read my review of NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer. After reading a lot of good reviews about this one I asked my relative to get me one in shade named Alaska from US. 

Product Claim:

“Your skin – almost bare, but better. This advanced, oil-free formula
provides a translucent veil of color and sun protection while helping to
reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots in just four
weeks. Infused with lush, naturally derived botanicals and ingredients
to immediately helps thirsty skin feel hydrated. Kopara from French
Polynesia and mineral rich seawater revive and re-mineralize skin for a
softer, smoother, and brighter natural glow. Skin is transported.”

  My Experience:

I love how classy the packaging is with a flip cap which makes this tube travel friendly.  NARS Pure Radiant Tinted moisturizer provides sheer coverage to my skin with a dewy finish. The consistency of moisturizer is little runny, I like how it blurs out imperfections and it fells very light weight on skin.  Pure Radient tinted moisturizer blends easily and smells good too, keep in mind if you are looking for heavy coverage then this product is not for you.  The product is amazing it moisturizes wonderfully stays put for good period of time and it never broke me out.  I first used this one in summers it felt a bit oily on my face( I have normal to oily skin), I kept it aside now I have started using it again and I am happy that I didn’t give this one. I still get shiny face with this one but I set it with pressed powder. 
 Its hell expensive come with the price tag of $42 for 50ml tube from SEPHORA and comes in twelve different shades. 

Here is  how it wears on me, upper picture without the application of NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer and the lower one after application. You can see how sheer coverage it provides and how glow-y it is. 

Tell me have you tried this one?
