Sweat, sun and oil make for a greasy face this time of year along with clogged pores and breakouts. Adding sunscreen to the mix doesn't always help. More SPFs for oily skins have come along in the past years and this one from La Roche-Posay is super matte.
Anthelios Clear Touch Dry Sunscreen is oil free, lightweight and very mattifying while also packing SPF 60. It goes on easily with a dry, powder like finish and sops up oil as it goes on. It can be used on bare skin , under makeup and for touch ups when the shine starts back up. It instantly mattes , meaning you can apply and reapply without worrying about build up or acne flaring up from too much product.
The formula has the brand's patented Cell Ox Shield XL for broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection along with perlite and silica to absorb oils. They do a good job as this works like a primer to keep oil at bay for awhile. By midday , under makeup, I needed a light touch up like any other day but many SPF's wouldn't give me that without another primer as well.
It's rare for me to find a sunscreen I can wear on my nose and chin all day , and this is exactly what La Roche-Posay was aiming for, putting out a product that even the oiliest will use , one they say has been tested in extreme humidity and 98.6 degree temps. In other words, New Jersey.
La Roche- Posay Anthelios Clear Touch Dry Sunscreen is $ 19.99 for 1.7 oz

My beautiful girl passed away. It was quick and I can't believe she is gone. She got sick so fast and now she's left us with a gaping hole . She was more amazing than words could say. She was my best friend, what my day, my everything, revolved around.
I need time and so no new posts for awhile . I may pop in, something to do and all, but it will be sporadic for awhile. Thank you.

A matte lipstick that isn't truly totally matte is my kind of matte. I like at least a little satin finish , I just can't do all the way matte.
Katy Perry's Katy Kat Mattes for Cover Girl have just enough of a satin finish while being mainly matte . These new lipsticks have full coverage , go on easily and feel good on lips with light hydration and no dry feeling.
My favorite is the nude shade Sphynx. It's a medium nude that's hard to go wrong with. Also shown are Coral Cat ,a rich medium coral and Pink Paws a light/medium pink . All are very wearable and have been getting plenty of time in the rotation over here.

MAC's In Abundance Plushglass from Blue Nectar is an easy, go to Summer shade.
This pinky coral gives sheer color that I call tutti frutti . It's not bold but not quiet either and gives you a nice pop of color . It's a shade that should perk up paler complexions and complement tanned ones . Grab, swipe and go for a perfect lip, what more could we ask from a warm weather lippie?
MAC In Abundance is available now for $ 20
