tarte CC Eye Primer Review

Press SampleI’ve been playing with makeup since I was in junior high, and really it’s tough for me to believe there was ever a time I didn’t routinely use an eye primer. Let me be clear… if you’re going to bother applying eye makeup, primer is a necessary first step. It evens the skintone of the lid, increases the intensity of your shadow, and lengthens the wear time. What’s not to love? This Fall, tarte is really establishing a reputation as a superior brand for complexion perfecting products. Their CC Eye Primer is incredible. The shape is that of a crayon, so it’s simple to apply to the lid, and then blend with a finger. [Read more...]

Tarte Undereye Corrector Review

Press SampleThis beauty blogger has tried many an undereye corrector.  I have a few favorites, and tarte Colored Clay CC Undereye Corrector has just been added to my official “must have” list after I had the chance to play with it.  The key to a great undereye corrector is that somewhat orange hue, that cancels out any darkness and leaves the eye area looking rejuvenated and smooth.

Press SampleAre you looking for new eye shadow with real shock value? Then you’ll need to check out MAC Electric Cool Eye Shadow.  This MAC shadow delivers intense, high-pigment color.  The formula is what’s most note-worthy though.  I was struggling with how to describe it.  The best I could come up with is that the texture is much like a wet/dry shadow, somehow magically pre-moistened for your use.

Press SampleI wear bronzer year round. I love the healthy glow it delivers, free of the sun damage side-effects of a real tan! Some bronzers don’t work for me though. They are simply too dark and artificial looking on my naturally pale skin. I’ve found a winner with AERIN Pretty Bronze Illuminating Powder!

AERIN Pretty Bronze Illuminating Powder is simply elegant from the very start!  Nested in a series of protective packages like Russian Dolls, AERIN beauty products are simply amazing in every way! [Read more...]

Jealous much?  The words of Heather Duke come to mind when I see this color.

Press SampleIs this year finally going to be the year of “green”?  It seems like every year, Green is touted as the “it” color for Fall, but consumers quickly rally around another color like plum, sapphire, or garnet.  Let the chips fall where they may, but this year is looking good for green.  If you love the color and want to wear it in an understated way, Laura Mercier Crème Eyeliner in Envy is a great choice to add a dash of green to your routine.

Is there anything more perfect for Fall than metallics? I was recently playing with some Sephora Formula X Chromes I purchased for my birthday, and wanted to share these beauties with you. I’m really impressed with Sephora Formula X. The breadth of selection the brand offers is incredible. In the store, I can stare at the polish display for hours (but good news, they encourage you to play, not stare).  Keep reading for swatches and pricing! [Read more...]
