NUDE Skincare Update

So, 7 days into my NUDE Skincare‚Äč Detox Brightening Fizzy Powder Wash test (basically three applications) and I’m sold. While it has not yet miraculously gotten rid of the rather stubborn blackheads on my nose and on my chin (oops–TMI!), it IS delivering in evening out the texture and boosting the radiance of my skin. My makeup looks prettier, too. The rule of thumb is to give new skincare 4-6 weeks to do its thing, but I’m already pretty pleased. It makes me eager to try more of the line. I need to find someone willing to finance my road testing!


Product Review & Road Testing Results

I’ve gotten the opportunity to try the NUDE Skincare Detox Brightening Fizzy Powder Wash (jeez, say that 5 times fast). The first attempt has been an interesting experience…sort of like Alka Seltzer for the face. We’ll see if it is just an expensive gimmick or if it truly goes the distance as far as the results go. Those of you who have sat in my chair know how much I carry on about exfoliating the skin.

Speaking of things I’ve been testing, I’ve been impressed with the new Urban Decay Cosmetics Revolution High-Color lip gloss. The applicator doesn’t do it any favors (tends to push around the color thinly), and it does not look as wet and glossy as it appears in the photos (hardly any do these days), but I can tell you that when they say it stays in the lines, it really, truly does. I avoid dark lip glosses because they all seem to want to run up my nose, but so far I’ve tried two of these and they absolutely stay right where you put them. They also have a nice color payoff–not as sheer as a regular gloss, but not as full coverage as your typical lipstick. For the first time ever, I can actually buy a dark lip gloss!
