LORAC POREfection Mattifying Face Primer is the most ingenious primer out on the market right now. It’s oil-free, paraben-free, fragrance-free, and colorless. To top it all off – its formulated with salicylic acid to help keep nasty pimples away and also contains vitamins A, C, and E that will keep your skin looking fresh and beautiful.
I love it for it’s mattifying effect – if I don’t use a primer underneath my foundation, I end up with 5 o’clock shine! It helps my makeup last longer and look better because it’s like Spackle for your face – it leaves you skin smooth and even – masking away unsightly pores. Wish it had SPF in it, but both my moisturizer and foundation have it, so I’m good!
LORAC Behind The Scenes Eye Primer is my favorite eye shadow primer right now. I even like it better then that cult favorite one. I like to you use it on my eyelids and under eye area. It has a silky finish and helps my eyeshadow go on beautifully. I am able to blend shadows like no other and the final result looks fabulous. I can totally see the difference between when I use it and when I don’t. Using it under my eye concealer helps even up the area and concealer just glides on – we never ever want to tug the skin under the eye.
BTW for a limited time LORAC is offering a Daylight Savings Value Set! A $72 value for only $25!
The Set includes:
- Multiplex 3D Lashes Mascara
- Travel-Size TANtalizer Highlighter/Matte Bronzer Duo
- Travel-Size TANtalizer Body Bronzing Luminizer
- TANtalizer Lips With Benefits in Marco
- Gold Cosmetic Bag

Give the gift of beauty to your loved ones this holiday season. Whether they’re into beauty or not, I’m sure these gift ideas will win them over. Some of these also make great stocking stuffers – Happy Holidays!
Whoever came up with this idea is a genius! I love giving these as a gift because it never disappoints. This set comes filled with 12 sample sized fragrances from various designers like Juicy Couture, Versace, Givenchy, and Prada. After sampling each one, they can choose their favorite and redeem a full size bottle at the store. Sephora also sells a sample set for men too.
I got this for my boyfriend for his birthday and he loved it and so did I. This cologne is a blend of bergamot, lavender and crisp apple for a fresh and powerful experience. Set includes a 1.0 oz. cologne spray & 1.7oz. shower gel.
This ultimate beauty kit comes dressed up as a box of fancy chocolates. This limited edition holiday collection features six palettes for eyes, lips, and cheeks. Just like a box of chocolates, this set is filled with rich shades of browns and shimmering nudes. HSN also has a similar set with four palettes for $40.
I’m always trying to find ways to get my boyfriend to start a skincare routine. If your guy likes to pamper himself – then this is the gift for him! It’s filled with all the essentials he needs like shave cream, face wash and moisturizer – plus a few extra items.
This year give the gift of gorgeous skin. This gift set features a 3 oz. purity made simple facial cleanser, one microdelivery triple-acid brightening peel pad, a 0.5 oz hope in a jar moisturizer for all skin types, a 0.375 oz when hope is not enough facial firming serum and a 0.25 oz eye hope multitasking eye cream.
This is a great shaver that’s designed to leave your man’s face nice and smooth. The best part is that after the shave, the Braun Clean & Renew System automatically cleans, charges, and lubricates the shaver at the touch of a button! This set also includes a bonus Fusion Pro Glide Styler – you know the one that features Adrien Brody and Andre 3000 in the commercials. It’s a 3-in-1 facial hair styling tool that trims evenly, shaves closely and edges accurately.
