Hello,

today I would like to recommend to you Blushing Fabric Second Skin Blush and Luminous Silk Foundation from Armani-one of the best makeup products on the market.

At the beginning I would like to describe the blush. The Blushing Fabric Second Skin Blush is my must have, a holy grail among the cosmetics, all time favourite blush.

Why I love it so much and most likely you will love it as well? Because unlike many other blushes this one will not accentuate your pores. After the application your skin will remain as smooth as silk. This will be indeed your SECOND SKIN. 

There are many shades available: 01 Shimmering peach, 02 Sicilian Orange, 03 Pink Chiffon, 04 Sienna, 05 Raspberry, and 07 Scarlatto.

I own the blush in  colour Shimmering Peach which is a pink with golden specks. Those specks will add a natural glow to your cheeks. After application your face will look healthy and natural. You will look well rested and fresh even if you are very tired.
At first glance the color may look shockingly bright but after the application it blends in with the skin adjusting to the skin tone. 
Application tips: use your fingers and be careful not to overdo it. You will need only a tiny dot of product, just like this:

Blushing Fabric Second Skin Blush remains untouched by the most part of the day, it may start fading by the end of the day but this is just my own experience and I have oily skin.

Pros:

  • the blush blends beautifully with the skin 
  •  looks so natural that people actually think that IT IS natural
  • won't accentuate your pores
  • the blush has an interesting texture - a mix of a creme and a gel, which gives a silky finish
  • long lasting 
  • very efficient, you need only a small amount (a tiny dot)
Cons:

  • price

The blush is expensive but totally worth the money.

The second product from Armani is its famous Luminous Silk Foundation. It is an InStyle Best Beauty Buy Award winner. I own this foundation in colour 3.75 which is a cool toned porcelain.

For the application I use only hands and it glides on seamlessly. It covers acne scars and makes the pores disappear. I love it and you will love it because
    Luminous Silk Foundation is:
  • very light, it feels like I am not wearing any foundation
  • hydrating
  • it will give you bright complexion
  • healthy looking skin 
  • natural finish
  • skin can breathe
  • weightless liquid texture
  • smooth and even application, you can use only hands
  • no smudging
  • medium/full coverage
  • buildable coverage without creating mask effect
  • long lasting
  • doesn't oxidize (it won't change the colour for orange)
  • effective, only small amount is needed to cover the whole face
  • simple yet elegant packaging
  • it comes in many different colours, over 20 shades everyone will find something suitable

Because of all the above I would recommend Armani Luminous Silk Foundation  to everyone.

Bourjois Youth Extension Flower Perfection Foundation SPF 15, 51 light vanilla, long lasting good coverage matte finish

Hello,
this is my second favorite foundation. It is almost perfect:). I say almost perfect because it accentuates sometimes dry/peeling spots. Apart from that Flower Perfection offers a great coverage, hides imperfections and blemishes without creating a mask-like effect. The skin is matted but this is not a flat matt finish. Foundation leaves skin dewy, soft to the touch. 

The application process is easy. I apply it with fingers and  it  blends well without leaving streaks. Only small amount is needed to cover the whole face. Using the powder is not necessary.
The staying power is very good and I have oily skin. Foundation has a thick, velvety texture and I prefer using it during cooler months.It has SPF 15.
I recommend it.
Greetings,
Joanna
