Victoria Jackson Gives Your Makeup a Spring Makeover


Victoria Jackson Foundation Duo

Spring is in the air and that signals the start of a new season – which to me means it’s time to make some changes! One area that can always use a springtime makeover is the makeup bag. This week I had some help with that thanks to Victoria Jackson Cosmetics.

I received a few of the Victoria Jackson products to test out including the Foundation Duo, Here Comes the Sun Bronzing Powder, Perfect Everyday Blush and Lush Mascara. I love the sleek packaging of the products that gives them a very “high end” feel. The foundation duo glides on easily and gives great coverage without heaviness or caking. The blush and the bronzing powder add a nice glow to my face. The finishing touch is definitely the Lush mascara. It lengthens my lashes and, best of all, stays in place all day! None of those dreaded under eye shadows from smudges.

Victoria Jackson Mascara

The mission of Victoria Jackson Cosmetics is to help women achieve inner confidence through outer beauty. Since I spend most days at home with only a few trips around town to run errands or to walk the dog, I don’t have to make a “full face”, but at bit of foundation, some blush and a brush of mascara and I feel ready to go out just about anyplace.

Victoria Jackson Blush

New L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Foundation – a Review

Disclosure Compensation

L'Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Foundation

I have tried a LOT of foundations over the course of my adult life. Unfortunately, more often than not I am not crazy about them. My biggest complaint is that the foundation usually doesn’t give great coverage or results. When I do find one that nicely covers, it often ends up that it dries my skin and ends up looking scaly or flaky in a short amount of time. It’s so frustrating!
Loreal Visible Lift Blur Foundation Alli

Recently I had the chance to try new L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Foundation. It is the first makeup from L’Oréal Paris with exclusive blur technology. What is “blur technology” you ask?? It is a special formulation to instantly blur lines and wrinkles. It helps erase those not-so-nice signs of aging like dark spots and large pores and also smooths uneven texture so you get a visibly flawless finish.

This is currently my go-to foundation. I love how smoothly it goes on and the immediate difference it makes in my appearance. And best of all – MY FACE DOESN’T DRY OUT! I don’t know how they manage that part, but it’s fantastic and I will be buying more myself to replace this tube when it’s finished. (Which will be soon!) Loreal Visible Lift Blur Foundation

L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Foundation contains SPF 18 and is available in 12 shades. It retails for approximately $14.99 for 1.4 fl oz. and is now available at mass food and drug retailers nationwide.
