How many of you guys have gotten your GAIA? There’s more to come with the line. I just finished the ‘rinse’ portion of the line, which might just pull me away from the need for deep peels. Maybe. Balancing the PH on this sucker was a BEAST, so we’ll keep testing it for now, and then I want to do another giveaway after you guys get in the groove with the wash and moisturizer. What do you think?
I used all three products yesterday with absolutely glowing results:
It’s not a secret that good skin leads to good makeup, and since I’ve battled my skin most of my teenage and adult life this is such a triumph for me. Keeping the surface of my skin attractive to moisture (not grease) and hostile to bacteria is a consistent learning process. But I’m so happy with the results! Wearing sheer makeup is now a daily occurrence, instead of a special treat.
Now in case you’re wondering about the color difference between my bare face and my made up one, understand that’s the difference between actual daylight and manufactured daylight. The bare faced photo was taken near my living room window in the morning, so there’s a crap ton of sunlight. The sun also really pulls my yellow undertones to the surface (sometimes to the point where I feel like I look kind of jaundiced). The makeup photo was taken later that night (hence no natural light) in front of the Diva Ring Light. That result is always more orange than yellow or neutral, which… let’s be honest… I really don’t mind. So I’m always super warm in my photos in the manufactured light.
This is Charlotte Tilbury Youth Wonder Foundation (which I still love more than the Magic stuff) in #9 with Nars Orgasm Blush and Tilbury Legendary Lashes mascara. Lips are NARS Lip Cover in Undercover. I like this one so much better than Get Dirty, but overall I’m just not a fan of these lip covers. I didn’t even bother with the reds. These are just doing the most in the worst way and it takes too much for me to wear them so I don’t recommend them at all.
