Hello everyone! Every time I’m in the tri-city area, I always make it a point to pop into The Truth Beauty Company. That store continues to be my happy place; I always have great conversations with the owner, Jen, and I get to discover new products at each visit. I obviously never leave without buying at least 3 things, so here’s what I picked up this time:Ilia Beauty Illuminator in Cosmic Dancer: I actually swatched this the last time I was in the store but decided to pass on it since I was already gathering a fair sized haul. I couldn’t stop thinking about it for weeks so I decided that it would have to come home with me this time. I generally opt for powder highlighters but the convenience of the stick was appealing to me. It is a gorgeous and natural looking champagne-gold highlighter that blends so easily into my skin. Definitely travel friendly.
RMS Beauty Eye Polish in Solar: This cream eyeshadow is organic (amazing!) and when I swatched it in the store, I immediately fell in love. It is a bronze shade (which is my cup of tea) but shines a bit on the copper-orange side in some lights which is so beautiful. Colour payoff and lasting power is impressive for green beauty and I will definitely be splurging on at least one more.
Schmidt’s Deodorant for Sensitive Skin (Geranium-scented): I raved about the original Bergamot and Lime deodorant but the only thing that was tricky was the fact that it contains granules which can be abrasive if you’re not careful. This is a newer item at Truth Beauty and contains no baking soda and since it is formulated for sensitive skin, it is very smooth. I decided to put it through the ultimate test and put it on before doing 40 minutes of cardio, 20 minutes of weights, and then an hour of a core/strength power yoga class (and yes, it is hot yoga.) I am thoroughly impressed as the geranium scent was still present after all that! I will NEVER go back to conventional deodorants – I am sticking with Schmidt’s for life!Here’s Solar and Cosmic Dancer – these will definitely be my go-to items for the summer.Here’s the look I put together using the shadow and the highlighter. I decided to pair Solar with Burberry Eye Colour Cream No. 102 Mink which is a gorgeous medium taupe to add a bit more depth in my non-existent crease. I would totally wear Solar on its own though because the colour is perfection. The highlight doesn’t show up as much in this photo but I can assure you it’s a really soft glow (or perhaps that’s why my skin looks glowy? Whatever lol. I’ll say it’s the illuminator AND I have to also mention the Diorskin Forever Everwear Primer I’m wearing…which I talk about in my next video…up soon!)
