Dr. Perricone. . .

I’ve always had problem skin. ALWAYS.  It’s annoying.  I have extremely oily, acne prone skin.  I have tried many (many) skin care brands and I am a big fan of Dr. Perricone and his products.  When he introduced his makeup line, I had to try it.  Yes, had to.


Perricone MD Perfectly Polished

I picked this up at Sephora using one of the gift cards I got for my birthday.  It cost $85, ($115 value) and  includes the following:

– 1 oz Face Finishing Moisturizer
– 0.3 oz No Foundation Foundation Serum
– 0.17 oz No Blush Blush
– 0.014 oz No Mascara Mascara
– 0.15 oz No Lipstick Lipstick


My thoughts:

Moisturizer: Love it.  Always have and always will.  This has been my go to moisturizer for years and years.  One warning though – if you are sensitive to certain scents,  you might find some of his products offensive.  Some of them (not all) do have a slightly fishy scent.  I’ve never  been bothered by it, but one of my friends brought this to my attention so I thought I would point it out.

No Foundation Foundation: I like this a lot.  It doesn’t provide full coverage like a typical foundation but does help in evening out the skin tone.  If you’re looking for a lightweight product, I would definitely consider trying this.  It helps with oil control and gives my skin a healthy glow.  They sell it on it’s own, so you don’t have to buy the whole kit.  The shade that comes in the kit is No. 2 light to medium, and it matches my skin tone perfectly.

No Blush Blush: If you like pink, then this is for you.  Having such a greasy face, I’m not a huge fan of creamy/liquid blushes because they just make me look shiny.  If you have dry skin, I think this would look really nice and add a dewy glow.  I can still use it, and it looks pretty, but I prefer powder blushes. 🙂

No Mascara Mascara: I was pleasantly surprised.  This is SUCH a good mascara! It makes your lashes full, plump and beautiful! I haver VERY sensitive eyes (oh hello, corneal ulcers – yeah – no fun) and this doesn’t make them sting or burn whatsoever.  LOVE!

No Lipstick Lipstick: Eh. I was recently given a tinted Burt’s Bees lip balm, and this reminds me of that.  It’s nice.  It’s pretty. Nothing spectacular.  It does give a shine to the lips and is moisturizing, but didn’t wow me.


This is the best picture I could get while wearing all of the products.  It’s my attempt at being artsy.  Yeah, I have no idea why my neck looks like that. Don’t judge.  Anyway, I think all of the products are great if you’re going for a super natural look. It definitely gives you the whole “your face, but better” feeling, which I can definitely appreciate. If you’re into natural looking makeup, this might just be for you.  Keep in mind. . .I love fake eyelashes and have fake hair. Really, what do I know? 🙂

Hope everyone is having a fabulous week! We made it to the weekend! (Almost!)
