Apply a layer of Superstay Better Skin on skin.

This foundation comes in a square glass bottle with a clear plastic lid. The labels have product and company information on them. It has a blue pump top lid.

Scent and formula
It barely has any scent. It smells like other foundations. It’s creamy and a light porcelain in color.


So I was sent this foundation to try from Influenster and Maybelline. I’ve been using it for awhile. Unfortunately my skin decided to revolt against me right as I got this. I stopped my Depo shot and my is paying the price. My face broke out in bad acne but it wasn’t from the foundation. The areas of my face not covered in mountain-ess acne did well with this foundation. It wasn’t quite light enough for me but I was able to use. I use a damp makeup sponge to apply it and it works quite well. The coverage is nice, it did cover my acne and red areas. When it sets it is matte and smooth. It’s a very light feeling foundation, I forget I have it on when I wear it. I can say this makes my skin look bright and even. I like this foundation and will definitely use up the bottle. Even though it’s a tad darker than my skin I am able to blend it out to look even. If they got in a lighter shade I would definitely buy it.


I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Apply twice a day, once in the morning and once at night, on freshly cleansed skin. Avoid eyes and mouth. For speedy application, pump the bottle top twice into the palm of one hand, rub palms together, then apply to face. For luxurious application, place one pump on each cheek (where your dimples would be) and smooth onto face with your finger tips in a circular upward motion. WARNING: The second method may leave tiny flecks of gold intact on your face for your friends to envy!

This came in a lovely cardboard box with product and company information on it. The bottle is clear glass with a silver screw on top that has a clear frosted pump top and a clear acrylic snap on cap. The bottle has company and product name and the size on it.

Scent and formula
It has a slightly floral/oriental/spicy scent. It’s not overpowering and fades away a couple of minutes after it’s absorbed. It’s a clear serum with gold flakes in it. It has a fairly normal serum consistency and you can’t feel the gold flakes. It completely absorbs leaving no residue.

24K Gold, Deionized water, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Collagen, Rose Extract, Hyaluronic acid, Creatine, Beta-Glucan, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide (Matrixyl-3000), Epidermal Growth Factor, P-anisic acid. CosDNA results.

So I’m going to be honest, I’ve seen other serums with gold in them and I didn’t expect much, I kind of expected bullshit. But this serum is pretty damn nice. It’s made in Canada and is not tested on animals. The smell of this serum is kind of wonderful, it’s not the traditional floral scent. It’s a little oriental and spicy and I like it. Once it’s absorbed into the skin the scent fades after a couple of minutes. I expected the gold in it to be annoying, I expected to find little bumps of gold specks all over my face. I can’t feel it at all. They are super fine and it’s like they aren’t there. Some flecks do show up on the skin, but they’re very small and you don’t notice them unless you shove your face into a mirror and actually look for them. The serum itself feels wonderful, it absorbs completely and makes your skin feel incredibly soft. I find it cooling and soothing.

I also find that it helps with acne scars. I don’t get acne a lot, but when I do they turn into horrible purple mountains and leave giant purple discolorations on my face. I got a couple of pretty bad ones this month and last and I’ve noticed that after I started using this serum they became a little lighter. This also makes my skin super smooth and it has a natural glow. It also helps with redness. I ran out of a product I normally use a couple of months ago and my skin started getting red again, but once I started using this the redness has been greatly reduced. I have been using this every night after I wash my face and it’s been wonderful. I only need to use 2 pumps. The bottle is gorgeous and so was the box it came in. My only complaint with the packaging was that the plastic cap was a pain to get off. For that reason, I uh tossed it out. Other than that it’s super easy to use and lovely to look at. I thought I’d have an issue with the pump clogging up because of the gold, but so far I haven’t had any issues with that at all. I’ve been using it for a month now and the bottle looks practically brand new. Overall I was pleasantly surprised and pleased with this serum. It’s quite nice. It’s also very expensive. This is by far the most expensive skin care product I’ve ever owned. If I were rich I’d buy a bunch of backups. I will have to save up for more of this!

FOTD: Vintage Imogen vs. The Walrus & The Carpenter

I put on a face today! I managed to get a full size jar of The Walrus & The Carpenter from someone on Reddit and it showed up today. Yessssss! I am also reviewing a Maybelline foundation and a Neutrogena powder and you know you kind of have to put them on to do that. xd I really liked the look and decided to finish it off with Fyrinnae‘s Kitten. It’s such a pretty matte lipstick. Also, Fyrinnae‘s highlighter Confidence is perfect. Perfect people, perfect. We ended up going to Winco for water and the clerk managing the self checkout told me she love, love, loved my brows. Then told me she finds it really hard to get her brows to look that nice. I thanked her and thought to myself she should see some of the people I know online. Their brows are a million times better. xd Also will be reviewing these glasses from Firmoo soon! And yes… I need to do my hair. >.>
