Questions for Scotia: The No!No!

I have been asked this a few times this month before and after xmas:

“I received a No!No! for Christmas…I need your Honest opinion on the No!No! ?” – Mary

“I was looking at the No!No! for myself but it seems so expensive.”- Diane

I will start off saying that I have not personally used this, because if I wanted to drop 300$+ I’d spend it more wisely.. or at least start with actual laser hair removal treatments. (anyone who has one and wants my to actually try contact me I’d love to make a video)

But I have talked to a lot of people with it and have done some research on it as well.

Product Review: Fit Me Foundation by Maybelline

I rarely buy makeup at shoppers drug mart or any regular beauty counter really. I normally shop online straight from the companies or from sephora when I can. I saw a commercial for this new foundation by Maybelline and thought to try it.

My routine usually doesn’t use foundation because my skin is normally healthy enough that just a matte powder that has a bit of colour correction is fine.  The foundation that I use for photoshoots or special occasions is Urban Decay HD liquid foundation. Which is so HD that I have to make sure to have a mini facial before hand. It is also a bit expensive(have to order it online or grab it when I’m out of town) so I don’t want to use it all the time.

Now that its the winter and I have spent a week in the hospital without a shower, my face is dry ans flaky and I have a few scabs from where the E.E.G wires were glued on.  I needed something that could cover and not cost too much and be lightweight.

trying to class it up with a head scarf, but each of those wires were scratched into my skin and then glued, then removed with acetone… talk about skin damage! ** not wearing the foundation here**

 

I was very happy with my purchase that cost about 8$. I picked #120: classic ivory which is just a bit darker because I do have a varied complexion and I easily go red.  This kind was also formulated for normal to oily skin, which is great that they are addressing the different skin types rather than just making 3 different  kinds and not clearly stating what skin type it is for which normal people need to see.

It is a bit thicker than the Urban Decay HD, but it did a great job covering up my sores from the wires, and didn’t dry out my skin.

 

I am very happy with this addition to my regular makeup routine!
