The Complexion Rescue-er

You know me, I love a light weight base more than anyone. I find it easier to achieve a flawless base using fine layers as opposed to straight up heavy coverage bases. After hearing great things about the Complexion Rescue from Bare Minerals I decided to give it a try. It had a rather tough job considering I was completely obsessed with the Chanel CC Cream at the time (I’m sure that even if you don’t watch my YouTube videos you can tell where this is going…) but I’ve been favouring the Complexion Rescue for a good month now which is pretty impressive!


DRY SKIN FRIENDLY: With it’s gel texture this one seems to smooth over the skin, locking in the moisture and providing long lasting hydration all day long.

LIGHT WEIGHT AND LUMINOUS: One of those – light weight but build-able situations, this is my perfect good/okay skin day base. It’s so easy to blend that it makes up for the slightly strange shade situation where both shade 3 and shade 5 have very little difference once applied to the skin. Potentially one to watch out for if you are either end of the skin tone spectrum. It’s hydrating properties are not only great for dry skin but leave a luminous sheen to the skin which only gives more glow throughout the day.

BEST WITH BRUSHES: Ignore what the instructions on the bottle tell you – brushes are best with this base, creating a flawless complexion that evens out skin tone and texture. For me this makes it less of an “on the go” type of base, so it’s not my number one addition to my travel makeup bag.

NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY PLEASE: SPF 30+ makes the CR a great choice for daily wear over the summer months, but not the best for nights out.

It’s definitely not a one stop base for every single occasion, but it’s an excellent day base and my current number one for every day use. If you have dry/normal skin (or oily skin and you really like a glow!) then this is definitely one to grab a sample of asap!

    My Wife divorce me for no reason, Thanks to Dr Dr.jarto for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again, My name is Perez Mark. i live in USA Washington Dc, I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same web site:,if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back. So thanks to Dr Dr.jarto for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again. { }, Thanks you Dr Dr.jarto, i will always be testifying about your good work.This spell is a 100% Guarantee for your situation.

    Hi everyone, I'm so excited.
    My ex-boyfriend is back after a breakup,Iโ€™m extremely happy that will are living together again.
    My name is Mary Wilkie from England.
    My boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and donโ€™t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next dayโ€™s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right weโ€™ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.Iโ€™m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didnโ€™t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but itโ€™s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity. If you have any problem contact Dr.Unity now and i guarantee you that he will help you.Email him at: ,you can also call him or add him on Whats-app: +2348071622464 ,His website: .
