Sweat Cosmetics Mineral Foundation and Brush Review

I love this concept and the product!  Sweat makes a foundation (plus a bronzer and an illuminator) in a portable brush container for use during workouts and busy lives.  The mineral powder foundation has SPF, provides light to medium coverage and does wear better than most during workouts.

And the company was started by professional athlete women, including a 2 time gold medal (Olympics) winner.

Women creating products for real and very busy women.

And the foundation provides a soft glow while evening out skin tone.

YSL Touche Eclat Highlighting Finishing Powder Review

Creamy, this powders adds an incomparable glow.  No shimmer or metallic glow.   I love this one!

Cle de Peau Les Annes Folles Lipstick Palette 2 Review and Swatches

Like the eyeshadow palette, a light formula.  The shades are stunning (a soft cool pink and a crushed berry; sheer gloss with a pink tint and tiny glitter), but ever so barely there. A luxury.

Cle de Peau Les Annes Folles Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches

Perfect if you like the sheer wash of color look.  These shades each have a distinctive twist that takes them out of the ordinary.  But overall they're glittery.   The mattes have a satin feel to them and are also lighter in texture.

Lunatick Labs Lipstick in AK47, Bruja, Calabaza and Lacrimosa Review and Swatches

Nice formula, light but wears well.  Hard to dupe shades.

Shiseido Rouge Rouge Lipstick in Sweet Desire, Real Ruby and Bloodstone Review and Swatches

These are super pigmented, yet light and perhaps not fully opaque (but so pigmented it's hard to tell).

Sweet Desire is a soft pink nude.  Real Ruby seems to have an undertone that switches between warm and cool (peach) and is a medium red.  Bloodstone is a deep cooler (burgundy undertone) red with micro shimmer and a lovely shine.

I adore these.
