Powder Lip Colors from RiRe and Tint Remover Review

Hello, ohmyglossers!  Today’s review is about the RiRe lip powders and the tint remover. The lip powders are lip tints that are in powder form and I believe that through this product this brand has gotten a place in the K-Beauty realm. It’s been reviewed many times by other bloggers, but here’s my take on it. I was sent the lip powder and lip remover set by BB Cosmetics for an honest review. Here we go!

The set comes with all of the colors available in the lip powder line. The colors are ‘orange pop’, ‘hot plum’, ‘sugar rose’, and ‘fashion red’. Each tint has 1.8g of powder in them. Packaging is a teardrop shape which is a little awkward when you’re applying it because it kinda slips between your fingers. I had to hold the wider part to get some grip. One guess as to why they packaged it this way was so that the wider brim of the applicator would catch the excess powder. Which leads me to my next point, the powder can get everywhere! Not like a ton, but enough to make a mark when you try to dust it off. No light colored fabrics if you’re applying this. The applicator in ‘orange pop’ and ‘fashion red’ are also different that it’s a tear drop shaped rather than the regular doe foot applicator in ‘sugar rose’ and ‘hot plum’. It makes it harder to pull out and more room to accidently flick powder everywhere. Not sure if it’s the same for all, but mine came that way. Just be careful when you open it and pull out the applicator, mkay?

The formula is the most intriguing and the most important. Just like it says, it’s a lip powder. It’s really interesting as the powder gets into contact with your skin or lips it has a slightly cooling effect and instantly melts into a wet formula. It’s not sticky or drying, it looks velvety and soft on your lips. Feels like nothing on the lips and it’s comfortable to wear all day. It looks really nice as a gradation lip or a soft airy look. You can also top it off with a gloss if you dont like the matte look.

The first time I applied it I was using a swiping motion but that made the color look streaky and uneven. Then I read the directions and it said the best way was to dab it onto the lips. Which gave a 100% better results. The colors are quite pigmented and wearable. You can also use it on the cheeks as a blusher which gave me a nice flush of color. I would recommend that you apply primer first because without it the powder accentuates the pores.

The lasting power isn’t as great as let say the ink or cream tint types, however, the color lasts more than a regular lipstick. Once you start eating and drinking, it will come off. I did a kiss test on my hand and it barely transferred, ever so slightly could you see the outline. When you rub it though it will come off. I also did a waterproof test and it failed completely. You can wash it off with plain water, really no need for the remover. There is a tiny hint of the tint left over but that can easily be removed with any type of cleanser.

The lip remover is a lip gloss texture and the formula includes aloe, sage, rosemary, lavender, peony root extract, Matricaria (chamomile) extract, and ivy leaf morning glory seed extract. But the main ingredient is isopropyl myristate which is a skin emollient. It works well cleaning up the RiRe powder tints and it’s great to have in your bag so that you can fix your lipstick on the go! You don’t need any water, just wipe with a tissue and it leaves your lips moisturized. Personally, I still to rinse with water, though.

I think this is a fun product, definitely different from what’s out there in the K-beauty market. I do think it has some issues with packaging and longevity. Nevertheless, I think it looks really nice on the lips. You can get this on Amazon https://goo.gl/RDrPKx for about 25.00USD. I hope you found this review informative and helpful in syour search for the perfect K-beauty product!

One Product That Will Keep You Out of the Sun

I absolutely love summer, the Sun, and sunbathing. But these days I’m trying to be a little less sun-happy because I want to retain and maintain the youthfulness of my skin as best I can. So instead of heading out to get your summer glow in the harsh sunlight, save your skin and opt for a good bronzer.

Bronzers can be a difficult thing to shop for because it’s a product that a lot people misuse and abuse, I’ll explain that in a little bit. Also, I think it’s a really hard color to match with your skintone. There are possibilities that it’s going to look muddy or too orange. To be honest you can’t beat a natural summer tan, maybe that’s why people will risk the effects of tanning to get the color they want. Nevertheless, as a beauty blogger I’m here to encourage you to take care of your beautiful skin and avoid being out in the Sun without proper protection. If you absolutely must go out read this post I wrote a couple month back. Anyway, when I said before about misusing and abusing bronzers, I’m talking about using too much and/or placing it on unflattering areas of the face. You don’t want to overdo it with bronzers because you don’t want to change the your skin tone just warm it up. I’m sure I’ve made mistakes in the past but you live and you learn. 😉

I personally recommend and use the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Give Me Sun! It is described as a ‘light summer peach tan’. It is one of the 15 shades in the Mineralize Skinfinish Natural line. MAC has a separate bronzer line but you can definitely use the Mineralize powders for bronzing. It’s not shimmery so it’s going to give you a very natural look. It’s also very wearable alone, over foundation, or under blushes and highlighters. In the case it looks very orange but don’t be fooled! This bronzer will give you Sun! I’m a MAC shade NC25-30 and this bronzer gives me a very natural warm color. It blends nicely and the feels very smooth to the touch.

To apply I use an angled blush brush or a tapered fluffy blush brush and buff it in on my cheeks, then up towards the side of my forehead, and also down to the jawline. Some things to remember is to build the color gradually and blend, blend, and blend. I recommend this bronzer to light, medium, and tan skin tones. I think it’s a versatile color on most skin types. If you’re lighter skin toned make sure you use very sparingly with a fan brush and blend it out.

What do you want to know about makeup? Part 3- Translucent (HD) Powders

DSCF7246

Have you ever watched a movie or a television show on a big screen in high definition and feel visually overwhelmed at all the details you can see on an actor or an actress’s face? It really takes out the glamorous airbrushed image of Hollywood. Now with the advances in technology it’s becoming harder to blur out our trouble areas. I’m not saying that we have to hide our (perfect) imperfections, I just get a little shocked when I can see all my pores on a really nice camera… Hahaha! Well fear not, magical translucent powders are here to help.

Some of us might wonder about this very expensive baby powder look alike. The purpose, is to blur your skin to look in real life like that slightly blurry selfie from 2010 but better. Translucent powders can mattify, soften the look of lines and pores, and it will give you an airbrushed complexion. HD powders as they are sometimes called, does a wonderful job to you that “real” skin texture and effect. The great thing about translucent powders is that it won’t cover up your cover up. It has very little to no color, so it won’t change the contours of your face or change the color of your foundation or concealer.

It’s like a magical white powder that will change your makeup game forever. Unlike your grandmother’s face powders, translucent powders feel like silk and not chalky. This is due to the secret ingredient, silicone. If the word silicone scares you, don’t be. Silicone found in cosmetics is very safe to use and will not clog the pores because the molecules are too big to fit into our pores and actually these kinds of silicone are very breathable. Just like liquid, silicone gives the powder that extra slip factor. The powder won’t just sit on your skin but it will glide on flawlessly. Silicone compounds can soak up excess oil and sometimes sweat so it’s good product to have during summer months. It’s also a great product to set your makeup. Lightly pat or sweep the powder on top of of your skin to give you that flawless finish. Just make sure that you don’t apply too much of it and avoid flash photography or the pigments will reflect off the light making you look like you have flour all over your face.
