Kevyn Aucoin The Creamy Glow 'Euphoria'

This was a real itty bitty haul. I was totally sold on this product by Wayne Goss' review. Before this, my only experience with cream blushes had been the ones from NYX.

Sadly, I really haven't used it much; hence why it's in the Project 15 Pan

Since then though, I've been putting it to work.

For application I like to use small duo fibre brushes like the e.l.f Small Stipple Brush or the M.A.C 130.

The formula settles down to a kindda powder finish; I say kindda because the glow definitely remains even after you powder over it. 'Euphoria' can be worn alone as a soft rosy flush of colour on the skin or as a base for a similar or complementary powder shade.

Don't forget that cream products have a shorter shelf life than powder ones. So please don't leave ignore them.

What blushes have you been loving lately?

The Makeup Show L.A. 2017

I know, I know...I get back eva since. The task was trying to figure out if to separate the experience post from the haul. Let's lump it all together shall we? Prepare to scroll.

Sharalee thinks that this show had more of an uptight crowd. There were a lot of celebrity -and celebrated - professional makeup artists. Still, I didn't get the vibe that is was less friendly than New York. The Makeup Show on a whole has a more serious feel than IMATS. The Pros are about knowledge sharing and networking. Of course the brands are there to sell products but that doesn't seem to be the frenzied focus. Lots of shots are taken at Instagram trends and click bait marketing 😁These are real lovers of the craft that don't take kindly to fly-by-night 'online influencers'. That said, the brands have embraced social media and a few current marketing mediums #obvs
