No filter, no editing done to the photo above. It was taken with my new Google Pixel phone which seems to make things a little more saturated and sharpened (something that bugs me a bit since I’d rather do that on my own if I wanted it to look a certain way). But that’s another story for another day. I wanted to share this photo of me above that I took on Friday of last week in my parked car — one, because my hair never looks that good. And secondly, I was sportin’ the Burberry Cashmere Foundation that I’ve been using more regularly now that the cooler weather has arrived.
I shied away from the Burberry Cashmere Soft Matte Foundation for a while when I got it — simply for the fact that it had matte in the name. But it doesn’t look too matte does it? It looks really natural and skin-like, it seems. Plus it gives a medium to high coverage to the face, which I’m diggin’. Overall it lasts a bit longer than the Burberry Fresh Glow foundation that I reviewed here.
When I went to get my skin analysis done at Kiehl’s, I heard the same results as I did back in 2012: I have dehydrated yet oily skin. All this time I thought it was bogus I had oily skin, but it’s not overly oily if you get my drift. It doesn’t require blotting so to speak — either that or I like that ‘natural dew’ I seem to have. My t-zone for the most part is the only oily bit on my face, which hey I’m okay with. When I heard the results it was when I was wearing makeup (both in 2012, and last week). So I’m wondering if my philosophy hope in a jar moisturizer has anything to do with it? Does that not sink into the skin as much, leaving an oilier residue on the face making me look dewy? Or do I have oily skin regardless of me wearing makeup? Thinking out loud here I guess.
Here’s what makeup I’ve been wearing (not too much difference in my everyday makeup besides swapping out a few pieces like the foundation, mascara and blush!). When it works – ya don’t change it. At least, for me. Even though makeup is super fun to play around with.
