I got this back in June and didn't remember to use it till the morning that I was getting ready for UV. That day was a scorcher! Upon initial application I instantly saw the product go to work. My skin was matte and pores on my cheeks seemed to vanish.

From the site: "Targeted oil-control primer that perfects and minimizes pores for mattified skin that lasts up to 12 hours. The concentrated Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector goes beyond extending makeup wear to address the root cause of why your makeup moves. This formula specifically targets oil-prone areas and acts as liquid blotting paper to leave your skin fresh and matte all day.

Use alone, before or after foundation to control excess oil while minimizing the appearance of pores. Can be used throughout the day to touch up areas of concern.
EverMat™ eliminates excess oil for long-lasting matte skin. This formula is sweat and humidity resistant
Ideal primer for oily skin or targeted oily areas.
Free of: Silicone, Oil, Alcohol and Fragrance.

Directions: Primer can be worn alone or under foundation. To apply, warm a pea-sized amount in hands and pat onto specific areas of concern like the T-zone. Allow product to dry before following with makeup application. For touch-ups throughout the day, warm primer in hands and pat over makeup to target oily areas.

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Propylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Butylene Glycol, Enantia Chlorantha Bark Extract, Oleanolic Acid.

I think I was trying to show the matte finish here (center of my hand versus the rest) in natural lighting. 

I remember sweating at UV like nobody's business. The Summer heat in Barbados this year was CRUEL...and it's still continuing. I sweat a lot from my scalp so when I noticed the sweat rolling down my face I said, dis primer like it ain't saying nuttin yuh. Till I noticed in the pictures afterwards that my makeup was still on. The only thing I was blotting away was the setting powder I had used.

Since that day I've used the product in all the ways suggested. If you're going to use it as a touch up product during the day, I suggest blotting away the excess oil first then applying. The nozzle dispenser on this product makes soooooooo much sense because you need very little. I apply it exactly as directed because rubbing it onto your face would cause the product to pile (roll up). The entire packaging is a win; the tubes soft malleable nature allows you to easily get the product out. 

The Priming Perfector shouldn't be applied to your entire face, just those problem areas. I know in this humidity it's very tempting to go crazy with mattifiers but trust me, not with this. Once I tried Milk of Magnesia all over my face and then this in the T Zone...WINNING! You really do need very little product to get the job done so the 40 ml should last a while. That's comforting since this costs $36USD.

My sole complaint about this primer is that prolonged use causes blocked pores which cause pimples. Funny enough, I'm hearing more and more that you shouldn't use primers - mostly silicone based - every day. The Priming Perfector states that it's free of silicone so I thought I was all clear. Yet, when three little guys popped up above my eyebrow as I was doing research for the Foundation Series this is all I could attribute it to :(

The primer doesn't contain all those great skin care ingredients like the Hourglass Veil Mineral one but it does absolute wonders to prolong the wear time of more "dewy" foundations. I am going to keep this in my arsenal for those big days.

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

#FlashbackFriday | Beauty in Panama

Panama is most definitely beautiful. It was never a place I intended to visit so let me begin by thanking Innovate Barbados and COPA Airlines for the opportunity. COPA Airlines sponsored Innovate Barbados 2018 and provided three tickets for attendees to any COPA Airlines destination in the Caribbean or Central America. Panama was being promoted as a shopping destination - cause yuh know how Bajans love tuh shop!

If you're new to this blog, when a post starts with 'Beauty at/in...' it's not about the places' landscapes. It's a beauty blog after all; we're all about what cosmetics are available.


Having done no research about Panama, I was shocked to see the variety of brands available there. Panama is home to the largest mall in the Americas: Albrook Mall.


Very popular brands are available in Panama; whether it's via stand alone stores or counters in Cave Shepherd  / JC Penny-esque department stores. They're a lot of pictures ahead to be prepared to s…
