My Beauty Favorites Week of May 11-May 17, 2015

It’s getting close to summer in Kansas City.  Hot, humid and stormy!  But, I am still loving trying new products, especially ones that will make me look and feel fabulous to and through summer.

This week I’m loving a new holistic makeup brand, a fast new hair dryer, and skin-smoothing skincare and an amazing smelling bath oil.

Geri G. Cosmetics
Geri G. Cosmetics

Geri G. offers a whole system of products that offer a holistic approach to nourishing and hydrating the skin, including foundation, a multi-purpose canvas, plush mascara, lip-gloss creme, and even complimentary nutritional components.

What I think: I have been testing the Transceutical Canvas, the Innocent Foundation and the Lip Gloss Crème. The canvas is like a primer that leaves your skin glowing and keeps makeup looking fresh all day.  The foundation is a little sheer for me, but the canvas keeps it on all day.  I think it will be perfect in the summer when I don’t want to wear heavy foundation.  And, I love the lip gloss!  It is very moisturizing and stays on for a while.  The color is sheer, but very pretty!

What I think: This oil is really fun to use.  In the shower it turns in to a foam and after you wash, it rinses clean.  My skin is left soft and smooth.  Plus, the scent is amazing it is both warm and sweet.
