Doll 10 Beauty Skin Perfector, HD Powder and Pro Palette 3!

Today I have a few new launches from Doll 10 Beauty to talk about! I've been using the Doll Skin Anti-Stress Skin Perfector, Refocus HD Perfecting Powder and the Pro Eyeshadow Palette 3 for a few weeks now and have really been enjoying them! I was fortunate enough to attend the launch event for the Skin Perfector, too, and recap that as well. Read on for my thoughts, swatches, looks and more.

Me: I AM BLOWN AWAY BY THIS FOUNDATION. BLOWN AWAY.  I love Doll 10 foundations, I even wore HydraGel on my wedding day. Truthfully, I didn't think I'd ever like one of their foundations more than that one and this is giving it a run for it's money. Usually, even when a foundation claims to have a primer built in, I still need to wear a separate primer thanks to my combination, shine and acne prone skin. But with this, I've worn it without a primer, I've even worn it without a primer all day running around the city and IT STILL LOOKED SO FRESH WHEN I GOT HOME. (Side note: I did still set with powder because that is a must for me). It is buildable up to almost full coverage with a very natural finish. A little goes a long, long way. It isn't flat matte, but isn't too dewy, which I like a lot. It melts in and becomes one with my skin and just looks so natural. I've had no issues at all with this foundation breaking me out, if anything I think my acne marks are actually fading since wearing it consistently. The Skin Perfector does not settle into my lines or pores and is so lightweight I don't even feel it on. I also love that it is full of skincare ingredients so my face is being treated as it is covered. There is no SPF, but I wear a separate SPF 365 days a year so that's no big deal for it not to be included. I also really like the pump tube.

I have shades "Fair" and "Light" and can get both to work for me. "Light" is a bit dark and Fair works extremely well.. For reference, I mix "Fair" and "Light" in HydraGel and with HydraLux, "Fair" is too dark for me (side note #2 I hope the brand makes that one is a lighter shade) This foundation actually has smart pigments in them, meaning once it gets on your skin, it self adjusts to your shade which is awesome!

I was able to swatch all the shades at the event:

I also have the No 9 Jumbo Kabuki brush which the brand suggests to use with the foundation. The bristles are soft and I like the way this brush buffs the foundation into my skin. I stipple it where I want fuller coverage and it helps apply the product nicely. I do need to take a couple of minutes to blend, and then once it's all blended it stays put until I wash my face.



Refocus HD Perfecting Powder 
 Them: "A micro-pixel blurring powder that works to brighten and reduce the appearance of uneven skin tones, large pores, redness, fine lines, & wrinkles. Immediately perfects and airbrushes the skin using micronized mineral pigments, skin-strengthening peptides, & Refocus technology. Our proprietary skin-perfecting ingredient blend mimics the effects of a cameras’ lens to filter imperfections and manipulate light leaving your skin flawless, radiant and glowing."

Me: This is a nice powder.  It makes my skin look airbrushed, lit from within and blurs my pores and lines, which I absolutely love. I have combination and shine prone skin, as I've mentioned earlier and I do like Doll 10's Finishing Touch Blending Powder a bit more for two reasons: 1) It leaves me more matte and 2) It is a bit better for my skin tone. The finish of this is beautiful, but if I'm out or sweat a bit, I found that I am a bit too glowy and shiny for my liking. I think if you have dry, dull or more mature skin you will love the that, though. Also, this isn't translucent. There is slight color to this powder, which I would LOVE if it was just a bit lighter. I'd love to see Doll 10 expand this to more shades, a lighter one especially, that work work with my fair skin tone a bit better. I can get away with this color, I just have to be really sure to buff it out and blend, otherwise it is a bit too dark for my fairness.

The No 18 Powder Brush is another great brush by Doll 10. I love that their brushes are cruelty free (like the whole line) and are synthetic fibers and not animal hair. This brush makes applying powder effortless, just the right amount of fluff within the bristles.


Pro Eyeshadow Palette 3

Me: Such a beautiful eyeshadow palette! I have Pro 1 and Pro 2 and love this formula. They are pigmented, wear all day (over eyeshadow primer) and blend beautifully. The pans are so generously sized too. Of the three palettes, this colorway is probably my favorite. I love the pinks and romantic shades. Every shade is wearable and so flattering on the face.

Skin Perfector Launch Event
Thank you so much to the whole Doll 10 Team for inviting me to the launch event of the Doll Skin Anti-Stress Skin Perfector. I had such a great time! I actually have bad social anxiety and get so nervous before going to parties, but I pushed myself out of my comfort zone and had such a fantastic night. Plus, everyone I talked to from the Doll 10 team were so sweet and friendly to me. The event was at a cute restaurant in Manhattan called "Two Hands" One of my favorite parts was the bar actually had fresh juice as well as alcohol. Since I don't drink alcohol, I was loving all of the juices all night! I wish more bars did this! It was also wonderful to speak to Doris (Doll 10 founder and CEO) in person again!
