In the past, I have registered under the name Pomps n’ Gloss for the annual Raleigh AIDS Walk + Ride. This year, I am going as just me, Marissa. No advertisements. No gimmicks. Just plain ol’ charity fun. I love meeting the diverse group of people that walk every year. I most definitely look forward to petting the mascot of Team Llama. Usually I bring someone with me, but this year all I’m bringing is my ipod.
Last year I raised about $300, but this year I’m reaching out to all of you for support. I think my goal of $500 can be easily attained if everyone pitches in what they can. Every dollar counts, so don’t feel like what you can afford isn’t good enough. I’m donating my time to walk because I can’t afford what I want to contribute monetarily.
I know people donate out of the goodness of their hearts, but who says I can’t attach a great big thank you to your contribution? This year I’m offering an AIDS Walk 2011 Donation Giveaway. I’m raffling off a prize pack so AMAZING it will blow you away! You can watch my video below to see what you can win.
List of prizes:
Viva Glam Gaga Lipglass
Viva Glam Gaga 2 Lipglass

Lioele Triple the Solution BB Cream SPF 30/PA++ is the best tinted moisturizer I’ve ever tried! My skin feels soft and smooth, my skin tone is bright and even, and I feel hydrated all day when I wear this magical Korean concoction. Watch my demo below to see my skin transform before your eyes!
Lioele’s BB creams only come in one shade that best suits very light to medium skin tones.
Here are some websites you can find Lioele Triple the Solution BB Cream SPF 30/PA++ Cream:

Jane Doe: What’s a good tinted moisturizer that still has decent coverage?
Me: I have 2 tinted moisturizers that I LOVE! The first one is MAC Studio Moisture Tint SPF 15. It gives great light to moderate coverage while providing 8 hours of time released moisture. It really evens out my skin tone and has a natural finish so it doesn’t look like I’m wearing any makeup. I love this product because while it perfects the look of my skin, it also protects and prevents my skin from environmental damage and aging. It’s water based, so it’s safe for all skin types.
My second favorite is Lioele Whitening & Wrinkle Care BB Cream SPF 30 (or Triple the Solution BB Cream on some websites). This is a Korean tinted moisturizer that contains ingredients like yogurt and hyaluronic acid to keep your skin soft and moisturized, and a high SPF to prevent sun damage and aging. This has medium coverage ans makes my skin look flawless. Since I started wearing this, I get so many compliments on my skin.
Jane Doe: Clinique stopped carrying the foundation I use, what do you like as a medium coverage foundation for oily skins? I’ve been looking around and nothing has jumped out at me yet. I am almost out, so I am going to need to get some soon.
Me: Which foundation did you use? Have you tried their Acne Solutions foundation ($24.50)? It’s pretty amazing. I also like Teint Idol Freshwear ($32) by Lancome. I know you don’t have a MAC near you, but if you ever make it Louisville, try Studio Fix Liquid foundation ($26). Studio fix controls oil throughout the day and has buildable coverage.
Jane Doe: I can’t remember the name of it. It was their last acne one that was in tube. It always separated if it sat for too long. I am sure that’s why they got rid of it.
Me: It was either Continuous Coverage Makeup or Clarifying Makeup. Jane Doe:Clarifying. You are on it!
Me: Some people use their brains for money. I use mine for beauty. It’s way less shallow. LOL. You would love the new Acne Solutions one then. Its not thick. It’s actually kind of creamy. It has a natural finish so you don’t look all dry and cakey. Plus it controls oil and keeps skin clear with salicylic acid.
Jane Doe: Cool. i will have to check it out. Thanks for the advice!
