This is a short and fun beauty tag I thought of. Everyone is welcome to try it!

Yesterday, while I was going through my makeup collection  agonizing about what to keep and what to give away I realized that as someone who is addicted to it (makeup), I usually have more than one item from each beauty/makeup category. This made me think – do I really need five shades from the same color of lipstick? Probably not. But which one should I keep?

Do you see where I am going with this? I thought this might be a fun way for all of us – the beauty addicts to play a game of… MAKEUP WARS (Or some other cool name. Don’t judge me…) I am sure I am not the first one to think of this, but hey…. whatever, I can be creative too.

So here is your challenge if you choose to accept it: Choose three items from the same category. It might be a shades of lipstick, conditioner, cleanser…. whatever your heart desires.  And then explain to us what their positives and negatives are, BUT at the end you have to choose one of them as the best and tell us why.  Think of it as the makeup Olympics. All of the contestants are good, but only one of them deserves the gold medal.

MY NOMINATIONS FOR THE CATEGORY “BEST TINTED MOISTURIZER” ARE:

1. AVENE – HYDRANCE OPTIMALE
2. CAUDALIE – TEINT DIVIN
3. GALENIC – TEINT LUMIERE

 

Lets talk positives and negatives:

1. AVENE – HYDRANCE OPTIMALE

+

  • it has UV 30 protection
  • good hydration
  • good coverage

  • too orange
  • hard to blend/ apply
  • does not stay for long

2. CAUDALIE – TEINT DIVIN

+

  • lightweight
  • easy to apply
  • amazing smell

  • does not moisturize that well
  • even the lightest color is too dark for my  skin

3. GALENIC – TEINT LUMIERE

+

  • easy to apply
  • good hydratation
  • good color for lighter skin
  • illuminates

  • do not like the smell

teinted

The winner is …

GALENIC –  TEINT LUMIERE . Here is why? Even though I do like the other two brands, Galenic works the best for my skin. It sinks in very fast, gives me a good base and I especially love the illuminating effect it has. The products works well as a moisturizer but at the same times has a nice light shade that very little of the same category products.

This is it. Pretty simple. I would like to tag … Rali from  RoseRed’s Beauty Blog and Dari from Darry’s Blog

 

Bisous,

Deni
