Doucce Cosmetics at Gloss48!

Press SampleI love when I have the opportunity to introduce you to a new brand that is truly incredible! Doucce is an indie brand that’s being featured on Gloss48 this week!

tarte CC Eye Primer Review

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…]

MAC Electric Cool Eye Shadow

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 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.

tarte Precision Longwear Liner

Press SampleWere you under the impression that this blog is written by a make up artist? If so… you would be wrong. I love product, but just like anyone else I fumble some makeup like a rookie.  A perfect example of this is liquid liner.  Try as I may, I just can’t seem to master liquid liner application, but I’m smitten with the perfect bold line only a well applied liquid liner can deliver.  If your results with a liquid liner look less-than-professional, you really need to get your hands on tarte Precision Longwear Liner, one of the many fabulous eye makeup items from the Lights, Camera, Lashes lineup.

Tarte Precision Longwear Liner looks like a liquid liner once it’s applied.  The line?  Perfectly even.  The color?  BOLD bold black.  It’s that classic liquid liner look, only with a twist that consumers like me adore.  Precision Longwear Liner handles just like a magic marker.  It’s so easy to use, you’ll be rocking that coveted cat eye in a flash!  Once the color dries, this product is in it for the long haul.

Retail price is $20.
