Plump, protect, and prep those lashes with Pixi by Petra Black Lacquer Lash Primer

Pixi by Petra Black Lacquer Lash Primer

I am pretty easy to predict – put ‘3-in-1’ on a package and I’m going to try it. Pixi Beauty’s Black Lacquer Lash Primer ($15.00) promises to do three things for lashes:  plump, protect, and prep. In the lashes world, I tend to think the less steps the better so a multi-tasker sounds even better than usual.

Pixi by Petra Black Lacquer Lash Primer

I typically don’t want to use a primer as well as a mascara…but hey, I like fat lashes. Girth matters. So I am happy to house my Pixi Beauty Black Lacquer Lash Primer right next to my mascara (my favorite Pixi mascara, by the way, is the fabulous Pixi Lengthy Fiber Mascara).

Here’s what Black Lacquer Lash Primer does:
The rich black formula is packed with vitamins A & C plus panthenol to help keep lashes in optimum condition
• Unique comb applicator defines and volumizes for the ultimate intense effect
• Use before mascara as a base coat, after mascara to set, or by itself for a natural tinted look
• Not tested on animals

For a volumized effect, apply before your favourite mascara
• For a natural effect, use solo as a lash tint
• To separate & set, apply after mascara

I often use only the Pixi Beauty’s Black Lacquer Lash Primer for a few reasons. One, because I’m kind of lazy and I’m always running late, so since I grab this first I run out of time and it gives a very pretty, natural look to lashes anyway. It’s a soft, very black fringe that is natural and feminine. If I’m actually on top of things, I use it as a base and add my regular mascara over top. It definitely gives a fantastic base that adds lots of girth for tons of drama and big fat lashes. Love it. If I have been amazing with my time management skills, then I have time to also use it for a final swipe of my lashes, which separates them and gives them a final set.  On those days my lashes look nothing short of incredible.

Pixi by Petra Black Lacquer Lash Primer

No matter how I use it, I never get any smudging, smearing, or flaking. My lashes stay curled and never get weighed down. This is also a fantastic mascara to use for lower lashes – it defines and separates but doesn’t give them too much length so they look like spider legs.

The Pixi Beauty’s Black Lacquer Lash Primer is one of those products to throw into your basket next time you are in Target. You won’t be sorry! And speaking of Pixi, don’t forget to hurry and enter our giveaway HERE before it closes!! – Lisa

Image Vital C Hand & Body Lotion is just what winter hands need

IMAGE Vital C Hand & Body Lotion

I’m pretty hard on my hands but from my lifestyle you wouldn’t think so. I don’t do things like garden or scrub hard surfaces. I wash dishes often and never even think about putting gloves on (something I should correct), I constantly wash my hands because I constantly go to the bathroom, and I spend time with my granddaughter which means a lot of blowing noses and bathroom time. All of these add up to a need for hand cream.

IMAGE Vital C Hand & Body Lotion

I have a lot of requirements in regard to what I use on my hands since I am so picky about fragrance. Plus I’m on the computer for many hours a day so I need to be able to type freely without slip sliding around on the keyboard.

Happily IMAGE Vital C Hand & Body Lotion meets my requirements. I’m only talking about this as a hand cream though, not as a body lotion. I want to stretch out the use of this $39 cream so I restrict it to my hands even though IMAGE talks about it as a lotion designed especially for the body. I have quite a few great body lotions but not many great hand creams and this is a great hand cream.

My requirements are that the products I use on my hands are either fragrance-free or have a light fragrance that isn’t annoying to me. Another requirement is that the cream gets absorbed quickly without leaving a film behind. And the third requirement is that it helps soften and protect my hands. Important too is that the hand cream has some substance to it since anything too light is just going to be washed away.

IMAGE Vital C Hand & Body Lotion meets or exceeds all of these for me. The fragrance of this is very light with a slight citrus scent. It’s not overpowering and doesn’t interfere with anything else you might be using. It has anti-aging ingredients in it and that’s something I really need.

IMAGE Vital C Hand & Body Lotion also sinks into my skin quickly leaving me free to type or handle paper without leaving any sign of the lotion on those products.

WHY IT WORKS

+ Effectively hydrates rough, dehydrated skin

+ Binds water to the skin for lasting moisture

+ Lessens the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and redness

+ Supports collagen

IMAGE Vital C Hand & Body Lotion

Vital C Hand & Body Lotion features four highly active forms of vitamin C.

KEY INGREDIENTS:

  • Vit C Complex
    • L-ascorbic acid
    • BV-OSC
    • Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate
    • Ascorbyl Palmitate
  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Vitis Vinifera (Grape Seed Oil)
  • Macadamia Oil
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Shea Butter

This is a hand & body lotion that I’m happy to have in my collection and one I’ve been using with regularity since I received it. It’s also one that I’d be willing to splurge on since it does what I need it to do and does so effectively.  —  Marcia

Our experts have a wealth of information to share this week and take a little ‘me’ time to enjoy our Fashion Flash e-magazine! We even introduce a new fashion blogger into the fold so there’s more to love.

February finds and fails

February 2019 Finds and Fails

It may only be mid February but over the last few weeks I’ve formed some opinions on some likes and dislikes. My finds are products that I really like, not just a little but a whole lot. My fails aren’t terrible but they aren’t products that I enjoy – or as Marie Kondo says “these don’t bring me joy”. They work for others I’m sure but they just aren’t for me so they’ll be gone. Can you guess which three are in the Finds pile before I start?

 

Sally Hansen has created an Insta-Dri collection with Crayola that is really beautiful. Sonic Silver is the second one that they sent me (first is Shimmering Blush) and I’m crazy about it. This was my first introduction to Insta-Dri and the name is so apropos. I’ve never tried a polish that dried so quickly. This covered in 1 coat and you don’t even need a top or base coat (though I did use them to make this last longer.)

Sally Hansen + Crayola Insta-Dri in Sonic Silver

Sally Hansen + Crayola Insta-Dri in Sonic Silver

The shades all have a shimmer in them and the colors are all fabulous. Sonic Silver is a charcoal silver so you aren’t blinding anyone but you are wearing the greatest shade that will make you want to show off your beautiful manicure. These are sold at Walmart and I want to make a trip there to pick up other shades in the collection.

Sally Hansen + Crayola Insta-Dri Glam Rock Collection

CIATE WONDERWAND MASCARA is my second find. I actually found it in January and used it most of the month. The way I found it is through my IPSY subscription. It was offered as an extra to add to the box for $3. I bought two different items and this was the winner.

Ciate Wonderwand Mascara

Wonderwand is a volumizing and lengthening mascara. WHAT IT DOES Create the ultimate fearless lashes with Ciaté London’s WONDERWAND Mascara. This Carbon black, smudge free formula creates intense 3D volume, curl and length with one swipe of its uniquely shaped wand.” I really liked how my eyes looked wearing this but right now it’s not available in the full size at either Sephora or Ciate’s website. Luckily I bought another mini when Ipsy had it available. Keep your eyes open for this one since it really worked well.

IT COSMETICS HEAVENLY SKIN 2-IN-1 TAP & SMOOTH BRUSH NO. 706  I saw this on IT Cosmetic’s website one day and became obsessed with the brush. I had to have it. Luckily it became available at ULTA and I needed something to get to free shipping. Perfect timing.

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin 2-In-1 Tap & Smooth Brush #706

Did I need this? No but I wanted it and I’m so happy I bought it. This is a skincare brush for eyes which I never thought I’d need. It’s made for eye creams which I’m obsessed with anyway. The brush side helps you apply the cream without any pulling or tugging. Not all eye creams need this but I have 2 that this is definitely making a difference with. Custom-cut heavenly skin hair infused with anti-aging collagen, silk, peptides, niacin and antioxidants.

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin 2-In-1 Tap & Smooth Brush #706

Just like I use a rose jade roller on my face I now have this for my eye area. “Handcrafted, smoothing aventurine stone massages product into skin while providing a soothing, cooling sensation.” It gives me the same advantages that the jade roller does but it fits under my eyes perfectly. I have fatty pockets under my eyes and the massage helps them look flatter. Plus it’s good for my psych. A wonderful way to spend $15. And the best find!

Now for the fails. I’m not telling you not to buy these since I think they’ll work for some people but they don’t float my boat.

ITTSE Down by Law eyeshadow single is one of the ITTSE shadows I bought during a sale but it’s been the hardest to use eyeshadow that I’ve tried in years. It’s out of stock now since it was on sale for $3 not too long ago so you won’t have to worry about it. But it’s made me worry about buying more shadows from ITTSE (normally $9).

ITTSE Down by Law

Here’s ITTSE’s description: “This deep, revved-up khaki packed with delicate golden fleck pays it’s dues and earns a spotlight in every itts? girl’s collection. Down By Law is THE multifaceted powerhouse that elevates your look and blows other hum-drum neutrals away. Dare to enchant with this versatile virtuoso by creating a surprising smoky-eye; pair with warm, golden-jewel tones for a devastatingly daring look that won’t disappoint.” Now wouldn’t you be sold by that? And when you look at the picture of the color in bright light you’d be sold too.

BUT it turns black on me and it doesn’t blend at all. I’ve given it three shots, with different eye bases each time, and it just looks awful on me. I’d accept it as a black IF it blended but I can’t do anything with it… except toss it.

FENTY BEAUTY FLYLINER LIQUID EYELINER was a sad disappointment. I’m not tossing it but I wouldn’t repurchase it either. This liquid eyeliner gets a ton of raves. I received this using a code at Sephora and was so excited about it.

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna FLYLINER liquid eyeliner

The good: It’s a beautiful dark black liner with a satin finish. It lasts perfectly on my upper lashline.

The bad: Even though the tip looks fine, I can’t seem to get a fine line with it. It comes out thicker than I want. But the real problem is that it doesn’t last on my lower lashline at all. It’s gone quickly but not neatly. I know the solution is to use something different on my lower lashline but this disappoints me.

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna FLYLINER liquid eyeliner

GLOSSIER CLOUD PAINT in Dusk and Puff ($18 each). There are now 6 Glossier Cloud Paints available but I bought mine a while ago when there were just 3. I love a cream blush and wear that much more than I do a powder blush. I kept reading the raves for Glossier so it was logical that I’d buy a favorite product from them. Now I wonder if I’ll buy anything else from them.

GLOSSIER Cloud Paints in Dusk and Puff

“The pillowy, gel-cream formula is designed to be the most user-friendly cheek color in existence. If you can finger paint, you can Cloud Paint—simply dab it onto cheeks wherever you please. It’s seamless, sheer, and buildable (i.e. it’s hard to accidentally apply too much).”

I beg to disagree with Glossier but you can easily apply too much and the two I have can be hard to work with. No matter what I do I can’t get the right amount out of the tube. Even squeezing softly I tend to get too much out. Plus I don’t think these blend well. I always feel like I’ve got a face full of blush.

GLOSSIER Cloud Paints in Dusk and Puff

GLOSSIER Cloud Paints in Dusk and Puff

Dusk is described as a brownish nude but when I bought it photos I’d seen made it look more peach. Puff is exactly what I expected, a light cool pink, and is the one that I will use up although I expect it to be a very very long time until that happens.

What do you think of these 6 products? Any you are interested in? Any you have? I’d love to know in the comments.  —  Marcia

N:P BEAUTIFUL Miracle Serum

LISA SAYS:  I think this serum was made especially for me. I have long hair – about mid-back length and it’s fine although I have a lot of it. Because I have so much hair I dread washing it….it’s such a time suck. It takes a good hour to wash, condition, dry, then style it, even using products that purposely cut down styling time. So I am always looking for ways to extend the life of a shampoo. Marcia is always poking fun at my long term relationship with dry shampoo, which works wonders on my roots…but the ends of my hair need some love, too.

N:P BEAUTIFUL Miracle Serum

N:P BEAUTIFUL Miracle Serum

That’s where N:P BEAUTIFUL Miracle Serum comes in for me. In between shampoos my ends dry out and get frizzy, especially since they are highlighted so they are particularly porous compared to the rest of my hair. This beautiful serum moisturizes each strand and smooths them out, banishing frizz immediately. Because my hair is fine it can easily become weighed down but N:P BEAUTIFUL Miracle Serum never does that, no matter how many times I apply it! It just gives my hair a soft silky look and keeps my curls intact. This is a true love relationship that will last a lifetime!

MARCIA SAYS: Though I tend to use this differently than Lisa I do think my love for it matches hers. And that’s in spite of the fact that I find this Miracle Serum to be fragranced. The first time I used it I felt the fragrance was very strong but as the days went on it lessened. Now I barely notice it, even on my freshly washed hair. It’s hard for me to describe scents since I barely use any, but this has a fresh sweet aroma that isn’t floral.

N:P BEAUTIFUL Miracle Serum

I’d forgotten what an oil could do for hair and was using more balm and gel items on my mane. I apply it when my hair is wet and then comb through to coat all my hair. It’s a wonderful blow drying tool. My hair is easily tamed, the frizz is banished, and my hair is ultra shiny. I’m sold!

N:P BEAUTIFUL Miracle Serum

Even though the bottle has a spray top the best way to apply this on my wet hair is to pump some into my palm and then smooth it through. It doesn’t take much at all on my medium length hair so happily I think this will last a long time.

N:P BEAUTIFUL Miracle Serum

To freshen up my hair I don’t find that I even need to reapply in another day or two. I can run my CHI LAVA Straightening Iron through it quickly and I’m back to shiny and bouncy hair again.

When two beauty lovers agree that N:P BEAUTIFUL Miracle Serum is the best hair product we’ve used in months then you know it’s got to be extra special. Or actually it’s got to be a miracle.

Ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethiconol, Phenyl Trimethicone, Mauritia Flexuosa Fruit Oil, Moringa Oleifera Seed Oil, Crambe Abyssinica Seed Oil, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Hydrolyzed Jojoba Esters, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Asarum Canadense Meristem Cell Culture Extract, Royal Jelly, Nelumbo Nucifera Flower Extract, Eriodictyon Californicum Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Nelumbo Nucifera Root Extract, Butylene Glycol, Fragrance (Parfum), Coumarin, Benzyl Benzoate.

Get healthy hair while you work out with Hair Warrior – and a giveaway!!

Working out is good for your body, good for your soul…not so good for your hair. All that hard earned sweat and perspiration doesn’t do your hair any favors, but Hair Warrior is the answer for protecting your coiff and helping your hair look as awesome as that rocking bod. Even better, the fabulous women from Hair Warrior are giving four Beauty Info Zone readers some Hair Warrior so they can work out and keep their hair healthy too!

Hair Warrior

Hair Warrior is like a light conditioner that you apply to dry hair prior to working out, concentrating on the ends. It’s heat activated so when you heat up while working out it starts working on hair strands, protecting them from the salt that comes from sweat that roughens up the hair cuticle. Hair Warrior adds moisture and conditions hair, preventing damage and prolonging the life of hair color. After working out, you just shower (well of course!) and shampoo and condition hair like normal. You will be extremely happy with your fantastic healthy hair!

Hair Warrior

Hair Warrior before and after

Not only that, Hair Warrior acts as an electrolyte for hair follicles, so it actually gives more volume to hair too while reducing frizziness. It strengthens hair and makes it super healthy. Just look at all the amazing ingredients:

Quinoa is a botanical that adds body to your hair naturally. Quinoa’s unique amino acid chain helps to repair damage to the hair shaft, strengthening and protecting each strand.
Bamboo and Pro-Vitamin B5 help to re-hydrate damaged and processed hair – reducing split ends, smoothing strands and sealing in moisture.
Organic Argan Oil, Abyssinian Oil and Jojoba Seed Oil are used to moisturize hair and add natural shine, while also preventing color oxidation.
Green Tea and Rosemary Extract act as antioxidants while also protecting hair from environmental stresses.
