Sleek MakeUP Blush By 3, Lace

press-sampleMy last two posts focused on makeup that’s ideal for dark skinned beauties, so it seemed appropriate that I continue along with the theme and introduce you to the Sleek MakeUP Blush By 3 Palette in the combination “Lace“.  This large mirrored palette contains three shades designed to either be used stand-alone, or layered for different looks!  In the Lace color trio, the shades are variations of orange.  The center shade has a gleaming metallic finish, and the other two are matte.

The shades included in this palette are (left to right): Crochet (a medium tangerine), Guipure (a gleaming coral), and Chantilly (a deep coral).  If you’re a fan of vivid blush that make the cheeks pop than this trio is for you. The formula is so amazingly rich, you really don’t even need to layer this product to get that color payoff!  I’m especially a fan of the shade “Guipure” because it features a unique golden finish.

Retail price is only $14.99!

press-sampleOne of the things I love about Estée Lauder’s Bronze Goddess collection is simply the packaging. The tortoiseshell bronze/brown pattern is so gorgeous it makes me happy before I even use the makeup!  Naturally if you’re planning to purchase anything from the Estée Lauder bronze Goddess collection the first thing you should consider is a bronzer. Housed in an elegant (and large) compact, Estée Lauder offers a wide selection of bronzers for every skin hue. This fair skinned gal understands how hard it can be to find a bronzer that looks natural when you are pale. I’m pleased to say that Estée Lauder offers four amazing powder bronzer shades that suit every skin type from fair to deep!

NARS Sin, Lovejoy, and Torrid Blushes

press-sampleIn my ongoing quest to find the perfect makeup for everyone, I decided to write this post about great NARS blush colors for dark skin.  When your skintone is deep, some colors simply vanish once applied.  What a waste!  For dark skinned gals in search of that perfect flush of color, allow me to introduce you to three NARS blushes: Sin, Lovejoy, and Torrid.

NARS Sin is a deep raisin-pink with a golden shimmer, Lovejoy is a dark rosy neutral with shimmer, and Torrid is a vivid coral with golden shimmer.  These each feature a golden shimmer that is perfect for Spring and Summer!

Retail price is $30 per single blush, or $21 for a NARS Pro Palette blush pan refill.

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Lip And Cheek Summer Glow

press-sample I have a very unhealthy obsession with the new Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Lip and Cheek Summer Glow.  This perfectly portable cheek and lip color features a dual-ended design.  At one end is a sheer, glossy gloss.  At the other end is color that can function as either a lipstick or cheek color!  The bottom portion of container is clear, showing off the gloss color contained inside.  Each of these can be used standalone, or you can layer the products on the lips for a more dramatic look.

I’m smitten with the color Sunburst (at left) a barely-there sheer gold that is absolutely gorgeous. Also featured in this photo are Fuchsia Lights (center) a deep pink and Peach Glow (at right) a medium peach.  I adore all three!  They’re a great choice to add to your beach tote this summer!
