Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Creme

Beauty, Beauty Blog, Beauty Blogger, Makeup, Cosmetics, Product Reviews, Makeup Reviews, Raging Rouge, With sandal season quickly approaching, it’s time to pay some extra attention to the toes that have been languishing under leather boots all winter. 

A reader of Raging Rouge insisted that I review some Burt’s Bees product, so I chose the Coconut Foot Creme.  It smells deliciously tropical, and worn under socks overnight it works wonders on softening the skin.

Blinc Lash Primer

Beauty, Beauty Blog, Beauty Blogger, Makeup, Cosmetics, Product Reviews, Makeup Reviews, Raging Rouge, iconRecently I added a new step to my beauty regimen: Blinc Lash Primer.  This vitamin-enriched cream conditions and heals delicate lash hair.  Used prior to mascara application, it creates a base coat to amplify the effect of mascara.  Used before bed, it soaks into the lashes to keep them soft and strong.

Think about the time and money you spend caring for the hair on your head.  Don’t you think your lashes deserve a fraction of that attention? 

Off-Label Use: Tarte Eyeshadow

My Tarte eyeshadow in “Valley of the Dolls” is practically empty, so I’ll need to snag myself a replacement quickly.  Here’s the interesting thing…  I rarely use this eyeshadow on my eyes.  Because my skin is so fair, this shimmery white shadow makes a perfect highlighter–one that adds more contrast than many products marketed as highlighters.

I’d love to hear from any of you, if you have an “off-label” use for a favorite product.

Fall Preview: Red Lips

Beauty, Beauty Blog, Beauty Blogger, Makeup, Cosmetics, Product Reviews, Makeup Reviews, Raging Rouge, iconThe red lip will be making a comeback this fall, and I, for one, am thrilled.  Haven’t we all fully embraced our inner-pink at this point?  While recently browsing through lipstick/gloss selections at Sephora, I was surprised to see some brands don’t even offer a shade of red.  Sacrilidge!

As a teenager, I aspired to the perfect red lip.  I would dream of the day I could wear red lipstick and not look like a kid who raided mother’s makeup.  So what to choose?  For a true 50’s starlet red, I highly recommend the many shades offered by Dior Addict or Dior Rouge.  Afraid to do anything too severe?  E.L.F.’s Moisture Care Lip Color in "Ruby Slipper" can be applied as sparsely or liberally as desired, for just the right intensity.
