Oily Skin + HD Powders

My HD Powders

I battle with oily skin every single day. I haven’t found a face primer that works on my skin. They always end up making me break out in acne, so I decided to try other makeup products. How about HD Powders? I’ve used HD Powders in the past, but I decide to resurrect them once again. It may be different this time around. The products shown are from brands I haven’t used before.

I have two HD Powders. On the left, Wet ‘n Wild Mattifying Powder. On the right, elf Perfect Finish HD Powder. I’ve already used Wet ‘n Wild Mattifying Powder. Check it out.

Wet ‘n Wild Mattifying Powder

I’ve hit the pan with this one. I took this photo days ago. Almost all of the product is gone by now. I mind as well do a review in this post. First, here’s some information about this product.

My Review on Wet ‘n Wild Mattifying Powder:

As I mentioned before, I’ve hit the pan with this mattifying powder. It’s going down real fast. Not because I love it. Because I want to finish it to move onto my next HD Powder (elf Perfect Finish HD Powder). I really wanted to like this HD Powder, but it didn’t live up to my expectations. It does absorb oil and reduce shine. That only lasted for less than 1 hour. All of a sudden, a surge of oil attacked my face again. Yeah, I have VERY oily skin. The glitter in this powder didn’t help much. I was expecting a ‘mattifying’ powder as stated in the product’s name. I wouldn’t buy it again. Onto the next!

I’m going to test the elf Perfect Finish HD Powder now. I hope it works. 🤞

A Review on LilyAna Naturals Eye Cream Moisturizer
A Review on LilyAna Naturals Eye Cream Moisturizer

Here’s my review on LilyAna Naturals Eye Cream Moisturizer! I’ve used it for at least a month already! So I stumbled upon this eye cream when I was searching for an eye cream that was more natural and vegan. Also, this eye cream has tons of good reviews on it. I thought I would give it a chance after pondering about it for some time. I decided to go for it, since my last eye cream was just OK. I wanted something more. Even though wrinkles can’t be totally eliminated, it never worked to decrease the darkness of my under eye circles. I have really bad under eye circles. I could always go back to my previous eye cream if LilyAna Naturals Eye Cream Moisturizer didn’t work. But, it’s been one month in, and I’m happy about the results! This eye cream is soft and cream-like. It absorbs into the skin easily without leaving any grease behind. It’s not the most moisturizing eye cream, but it doesn’t dry out the skin either. I do wish it was more moisturizing. Finding an eye cream that lightens dark under eye circles just a little bit is difficult to come by. This eye cream did help to fade my dark under eye circles just a little bit. I’m very happy about that! That’s better than nothing! On the bottle, it says that you can use it as a face cream too. I tried it. It didn’t work for me. It clogged my pores and wasn’t moisturizing at all. I prefer it only as an eye cream. So far, it’s going well. I hope it continues this way!
