I got a chance to try out a few more Korres products this week and now I'm wondering where this brand has been all my product-buying life because I'm really digging it. (I'm totally trying to bring back the phrase "digging it" after seeing it on a rerun of "Three's Company" this week). Their Provitamin B5 & Rice Bran Mascara is a really great every day mascara. At $16, it has a lash-strengthening formula that uses natural Rice Bran extract to add add volume and length to your lashes. What I like about it is the brush, which is the perfect size to let you slip on the mascara without getting it all over your face (a common problem for the uncoordinated, like me). It also really doesn't clump, even when you put on several coats, which I totally appreciate. It just gives me natural-looking, thicker lashes and it's perfect for the daytime. It's also available in some interesting shades - besides Black and Brown, there's also a Grey Green and Blue Black. They'd be a nice way to try a subtle, different color on your lashes without going too wild.
I always like the look primers give my skin, but half the time I'm too lazy in the morning to put them on. But I really wanted to test out this Face Primer, so I made myself put it on every day for a week, and it's definitely made itself an indispensable part of my routine. It's a silicon-free, 99% natural primer that goes on smoothly and leaves my skin looking much better than it does normally. (For some reason, whenever I put it on, I always think of it like I'm spackling my face. Too much watching my dad fix things around the house while I was growing up, I guess!) It just seems to fill in the pores on my face so that when I put on foundation, my skin looks closer to perfect. (Which, uhm, sadly it is not). There really is a difference in the way it looks with and without primer and it's a big enough difference to make my lazy self add a step to my makeup routine, so you know it's worth it!
