Makeup Support Skin Perfecting System Try Me Tote - Review

I received a rather lovely package from Aesthetic Artistry. It was a Starting over tote . 
Create a perfect canvas for beautiful makeup every time - an ultra-smooth, poreless surface for makeup that stays fresh throughout the day. This simple system preps and perfects your skin in just seconds, delivering an ultra-smooth, seemingly poreless com

The kit contains ,
Cleanse :
  • Instant Eye makeup dissolving Fluid
Prep :
  • Equalizing Serum
  • AHA/vitamin C eye cremeGel
  • Perfect skin line diffusing emulsion
Set and Revive :
  • Herbal vitamin mist
I have been using some of the products and i think i am ready to share my thoughts.

Purlieu2 Instant Eye Makeup Dissolving Fluid

What it is
Gently wipe away every trace of eye makeup in seconds with this fast-acting, oil-free formula strengthened with natural cleansers from the succulent desert Yucca tree. Hydrating Algae and calming Plant extracts soothe the sensitive eye area, leaving it comfortably hydrated without an oily afterfeel. 

This formula does not contain oils, sulfates, synthetic colorants, synthetic fragrance or formaldehyde-releasing preservatives

 This is such a good makeup remover. I usually shake the bottle, open the lid and soak the cotton ball in it, and it removes eye makeup so easily. It doesn't give me panda eyes and No rubbing hard.
It won't leave a greasy feeling behind, and what i loved most is that it doesn't irritate or sting my very sensitive skin and eyes. I like my eye makeup removers to be gentle and with no weird chemical smell , i am a faithful user of  Rimmel Gentle Eye Make Up Remover. But i have started to like this baby too.

  • Dissolves even the most stubborn eye makeup in seconds
  • Gentle enough for sensitive skin
  • Won’t leave eye area feeling oily
  • Can apply makeup immediately after cleansing eye area
  • Fragrance-Free. Oil-Free. Ophthalmologist-Approved. Safe with contact lenses.
    Purlieu2 AHA Vitamin C Eye CremeGel
The hyberation of a gel, the luxurious richness of a cream, this advanced cremeGel formula delivers both. Plus Vitamin C & E and AHAs in cell-targeted liposomes.Diminishes the appearance of fine lines around the eyes and discourages formation if lines in future .Green tea and licorice soothe.
It is suitable For Dry, Mature, Sun Damaged, AHA-Treated Skin Types.
What it does: Neutralizes the aging effects of sun and the environment. Diminishes appearance of fine lines around eyes and discourages the formation of lines in the future. 

Its an Oil free, fragrance free and sensitivity tested.Its Ophthalmologist approved for use around eyes

I am in my late 20s and i think its the right time to start with Anti aging products  ,Anti aging are everywhere nowadays.I believe one should absolutely think about taking measures to prevent wrinkles when you're in your 20s.One of the first areas to show signs of aging, the skin around the eyes needs extra hydration even if the rest of your face doesn't.
I have sensitive and dry skin when i started using this, so i has to be careful , i started slow. It didnt stink or irritate my skin infact ut has this pleasant cooling effect.. Refreshing. It has a light texture which absorbs quickly. I dont use it daily , but i use this 2-3 times a week
however, effects of each anti-wrinkle cream vary,for some people it even takes more than 1 year or few weeks to see effects. I am still using it so i will let you know if i see any results.

AHA Vitamin C Eye CremeGel has quite alot of benefits including few below

  • Visibly smoothes fine lines and other signs of sun damage
  • Helps re-firm aging skin above and below eyes
  • Instantly hydrates to reduce crepiness due to dryness
  • Helps prevent new lines from forming, slows loss of firmness
  • Begins working immediately - effects improve dail
Purlieu2 Perfect skin line diffusing emulsion

What it is ? Instantly perfect skin's texture, visibly often the edges of harsh lines, wrinkles, and enlarged pores, and mute reddened skin tones (even the redness of rosacea), with this fast acting, age-hiding formula.

What does it do ?Revolutionary soft-light diffusion technology makes it possible: Three Dimensional Holographic Molecules reflect light away from skin, giving a radiant smoothness to even the roughest surface; optic micro-lenses soften harsh skin tones, visibly muting uneven color, redness and other discolorations. Skin looks as if it is being viewed through a camera's soft-focus lens.

So if i have summon it in one word, i would go for "Primer(?)". I got the Travel Size Squeeze Bottle, which is perfect for someone like me who is traveling like every month , and you only need a little.You only need a medium size pearl over moisturizer and sunscreen. I usually moisturize my face and apply it all over and wait for few mins to let it sink in , before applying foundation.If you want ultra-smoothness, apply over Equalizing Serum (allow serum to absorb before applying Perfect Skin Line-Diffusing Dmulsion).

Tip: Mix one pearl of Perfect Skin Line-Diffusing Emulsion into sunscreen to reduce shine

Purlieu2 Herbal vitamin mist

I've wanted a facial mist from quite some time, we dont have  MAC's Fix+ available in pakistan but wanted a cheaper alternative, so when I was sent this Purlieu2 Herbal vitamin mist , i was quite delighted.

Benefits of Purlieu2 Herbal vitamin mist:
  • Refreshes and cools instantly
  • Comforts dry skin on contact
  • Reactivates moisturizers within seconds
  • Hydrates dry hair; revitalizes natural curl
  • Sets and revives makeup throughout the day
  • Take anywhere dryness is a problem: sports, travel, in the car, in the office
Pakistani weather is mostly hot and humid for 8-9 month out of 12. Sometimes its good to have a Vitamin mist in handy for quick touch ups. Its doesnt only works for makeup but also works well with hair .Sometimes when i was in hurry and i wanted a extra boost after applying foundation , l, I just spray it on and it makes it look so much more natural and fresh.
 Suggested Use:                                                        
Close eyes. Press mist pump firmly 1-3 times over face or hair.
Facial Procedure: Spray Herbal Vitamin Mist over skin after cleansing, extraction and masque removal.
Makeup Procedure: Spray evenly over skin, whenever dry, flaky patches and signs of uneven makeup application are visible. Sets make up – mist over makeup to revive color throughout the day.
For Dry Hair: Spray to refresh and moisturize dry hair and revive natural curl.

I also experimented it with my eyeshadow , I sprayed it on  my makeup brushes and it gives eyeshadow a beautiful foiled look.I kept it in my fridge as it still quite warm in Pakistan.
It smells herb-ally , which is quite refreshing  and the mist is super fine.

Over all i am very pleased with the products i have tried so far. They were unique and effective. Excellent for all skin types, however, particularly recommended for people with the following skin care challenges: puffy eyes, large pores, dry/mature skin, red uneven tone, dehydrated skin.

(1) - 0.25 fl oz - Equalizing Serum;
