Paula’s Choice Blush It On Contour Palette review and swatches

Paula's Choice Blush It On Contour Palette

Paula’s Choice Blush It On Contour Palette

I probably recommend the Paula’s Choice line more than any other, but honestly mostly for skin care. I have had a love/hate relationship with her color cosmetics. Cream Concealer? Not for me. Foundation? None of them are my favorites. Lip gloss? Nothing special.  Some of the color cosmetics are fantastic though – love love love the Bright & Berry Lip Collection, Brow Defining Cream, and Eyeshadow Palette.

I recently placed an order for about 10 of the Gentle Touch Makeup Remover – it’s so good I get anxious when I am down to five bottles! – and at the last-minute decided to add in the Blush It On Contour Palette. This is Limited Edition and costs $36. I was a bit uneasy spending that amount when I haven’t loved Paula’s blushes in the past, but I am happy I took the plunge and I’ll bet you might want to invest after reading my review.

Prior incarnations of blush from Paula didn’t do much for me. They just weren’t pigmented enough and didn’t last on my blush-eating skin. However, this palette is a wonderful improvement from the previous blush formulas. The Blush It On Contour Palette has six shades for highlighting, contouring, and blushing like a school girl. The formula is silky smooth, blends in beautifully, and has a satin matte finish. The colors are long-wearing with minimal fading, and they don’t oxidize throughout the day.

The highlighting shade is Pearl, which swatches pretty dramatic but has a beautiful, glowy effect on that looks very natural. Paula is typically anti-shimmer yet pro-luminescence, and this highlighter definitely delivers. I love it on the tops of my cheekbones for a youthful glow, as well as down the center of my nose with the Bronze shade lightly brushed down the sides to give a ‘thinning out’ effect.

Delicate Coral is a very pretty coral shade that is gorgeous on warm skin tones and deeper skin shades. I love this when I have faux-tanned my skin into the medium range; it looks like summertime and sandy beaches to me.

Peony is a very pretty medium pink without shimmer. It is a perfect everyday shade for work, and it layers nicely for a more dramatic evening look.

Moving on down to the bottom row, Bronze provides the ‘contour’ in the palette name. This is a soft but versatile contour/bronzer. I like that it’s matte – I think too much sparkle and shimmer ruins some otherwise terrific contour products. I love this just underneath my blush to give my cheekbones more definition and, as I mentioned, it’s awesome paired with Pearl for thinning out the nose.

Soft Rose is a light pink that pale complexions will adore. It’s probably too light for any skin tone darker than medium, but this is a great ballerina pink that is just tad bit peachy.

Dusty Mauve is my favorite of the blush shades. It’s a deeper berry pink that might be a tad too dark for you pale princesses, but is amazing on any shade darker than porcelain. It’s the most dramatic of the shades so go easy with it and build up to the color you want.

If I had my druthers, I would love for Paula to add two more shades to this palette – one more highlighter with less pink tint and more sheen, and one more bronzer in a deeper shade. But that’s really nitpicking.

While none of the colors are dramatic, they all give beautiful, natural washes of color that last all day. This is a great workhorse palette that you will find yourself reaching for time and time again. If you haven’t ordered from Paula’s Choice before, I have a code for $10 off your first order, just click HERE.  If you are looking for a great new blush palette I highly recommend this one – get it before it’s gone.  – Lisa

Butter London is making me blush…the BlushClutch and Tiger Lily, Violet, and Hibiscus review and swatches

Butter London BlushClutch Single Blushes

Butter London BlushClutch Single Blushes

You know what drives me crazy? A single blush. Palettes have spoiled me. I have too many single blushes knocking around in my makeup drawer, taking up valuable space. Instead of searching through all the singles to find the right shade for the day, I like a good palette with several options all at once.

Butter London has two pre-made blush palettes called the BlushClutch ($39), one with three warm colors (Simply Sweet) and one with three cool colors (Just Darling). They also have several single blush shades ($15 each) that you can switch out for any of the colors, and those three blushes are the ones I am reviewing today.                                                                                                                                      PR samples

Butter London BlushClutch

Butter London BlushClutch

Overall, these powder blushes have a beautiful texture and are long-wearing. Other positive points:

Ruby Powder and Pepper Tree Extract help bring out a natural flush.
True color payoff with micronized pigments.
Primer infused for all day wear.
Creamy, velvety texture for smooth application.
Buildable coverage.
Universal for any skin tone.

The first single blush is Tiger Lily, which is a bright peach blush.

Butter London Tiger Lily Blush single

I typically stay away from warmer colors on my cheeks because I think they make me look sallow, but this is such a pretty peach! It’s a strong color so you don’t need much of it. A great tip is to first apply a little cream blush in a contrasting color, like raspberry or a blue/red. It gives a great base for the warmer powder blush, helping it last even longer and toning down both warmth and coolness.

The second shade is Violet, a bright lavender blush.

Butter London Violet Blush single

I thought this was going to be almost neon and take me straight back to the 1980’s, but Violet is a gorgeous pinky-purple that is subtle but buildable. I think this is my favorite of the three shades. It’s so feminine and pretty and just perfect for spring.

The third single shade is Hibiscus, a bubblegum pink blush.

Butter London Hibiscus Blush single

Butter London Hibiscus Blush single

This is a beautiful workhorse pink blush. You want a great pink shade that works for both day and night? Here you go. Like Violet it’s buildable and goes from sheer and natural to strong and dramatic. This is a terrific neutral pink that would look good on just about anyone.

Butter London Hibiscus, Violet, and Tiger Lily Blush

If you just want one color, then go ahead, use it as a single blush…but why not go the BlushClutch route and have them all at your fingertips? I think it sounds like the perfect excuse to do just a little more shopping!  – Lisa

NYC Lovatics by Demi – you won’t believe how great these are (giveaway alert too)

NYC Lovatics by Demi

NYC Lovatics by Demi

The last time you saw me write about NYC Lovatics by Demi I was raving about the Natural palette that has been created in the Demi Lovato collection from NYC. My raves have continued since I use this palette all the time. It hits the right buttons for the looks that I love. Plus it’s a total dupe for the original Urban Decay Naked palette. It’s spot on. Whenever I see dupes I wonder about quality but there’s no wondering with this palette since the quality is there 100%.

NYC Lovatics by Demi

There are no names on this palette but NYC numbered them and then gathered them into groups depending on the look you are interested in: Discreet Nude, Glamour Nude and Smokey Nude. The numbers are in the order of the palette seen above.

There’s a mix of finishes in the palette making it great for whatever look you want.

NYC Lovatics by Demi shades 4, 6, 9

My favorite shades are always metallic and lightly shimmered like #4, 6, and 9. I like pigment and brightness in my shadows and Natural has that along with the everyday shades that you need like the matte shades. This is a total steal at $6.99 or $4.99 (Walmart) and I really hope that NYC brings out more palettes in this line.

NYC Lovatics by Demi Cheeky Pink Lip & Cheek Tint

NYC Lovatics by Demi Cheeky Pink Lip & Cheek Tint

In addition to the palette NYC came out with a few more fun items including four Lip & Cheek Tints that are only $3.99. These are liquid stains and they really do stain. If you are looking for a very natural lip tint that will not dry out your lips at all and yet will impart some color, these are for you. They come packaged like a nail polish and the brush is easy to use for  applying but you need to work fast with these.

NYC Lovatics by Demi Cheeky Pink Lip & Cheek Tint

NYC Lovatics by Demi Cheeky Pink Lip & Cheek Tint

I have Cheeky Pink and Cheeky Strawberry and there’s also Cheeky Red and Cheeky Berry. As much as I love cream blushes I’m really too old for these liquids as cheek shades so I personally use them on my lips. Cheeky Pink is bright and has a longer lasting stain to it than Cheeky Strawberry which is darker but subtler.

NYC Lovatics by Demi Cheeky Strawberry Lip & Cheek Tint

NYC Lovatics by Demi Cheeky Strawberry Lip & Cheek Tint

If you have a daughter who does something like dance competitions or cheerleading, these would be perfect. They give that fresh from the cold appearance but won’t disappear, especially Cheeky Pink. According to NYC these are kiss proof and smudge proof.  A great substitute for Benefit’s Lip and Cheek Tints!

I think Demi Lovato is a great spokeswoman for NYC. She’s on a career comeback, she’s bright and cheery, and she’s a fresh face beauty. With different packaging you could sell these for much more and no one would know the difference. — Marcia

Celebrate the new year with IT Cosmetics TSV “New Year Your Most Beautiful Skin”

#yourmostbeautiful2016 IT Cosmetics TSV

IT Cosmetics TSV

#yourmostbeautiful2016

Saturday, January 16th is one special day on QVC since it’s Beauty Day. The best part of Beauty Day for us is that it means a TSV for IT Cosmetics. And what a great TSV it is. Lisa and Marcia are thrilled to have received a sneak peek to share with you so you can see what special items are in IT COSMETICS NEW YEAR, YOUR MOST BEAUTIFUL SKIN COLLECTION, 6 piece set.

IT Cosmetics TSV Your Most Beautiful Skin #yourmostbeautiful2016

IT Cosmetics TSV Your Most Beautiful Skin #yourmostbeautiful2016

LISA is sharing CC+ Veil Cushion Compact Foundation and 2 brushes

IT Cosmetics stole my heart a long time ago and it continues to be one of my favorite cosmetics line. This set is really a fantastic value and so much fun!

IT Cosmetics New Year, Your Most Beautiful Skin foundation and brushes

The CC+ Veil Cushion Compact Foundation is a sponge-worthy foundation (for all you Seinfeld fans!) that has just about everything. It has a 50+ SPF, an anti-aging serum, a moisturizer, a primer, and a sheer to medium foundation, all in one. If you have oily skin you will still want to use a separate primer, but otherwise this is definitely a multi-tasker that will make you very happy.

The squishy sponge houses a creamy liquid foundation that goes on like gossamer, it’s so lightweight. The coverage is sheer but buildable, and what I really love about this set is it includes a refill! I’m not sure how long the sponge will last, but I’m glad to know that once I’ve used it up I have another one ready. My shade is medium, and it’s a neutral tone that is a little on the light side for a medium shade.

Heavenly Luxe Dual-Ended Complexion Perfection Brush

While the foundation comes with an application puff, I prefer the Heavenly Luxe Dual-Ended Complexion Perfection Brush. This brush is oh-so-soft, but it’s densely packed so it gives great control.  The large end is perfect for applying the Cushion Compact Foundation and the small end is great for those hard to cover areas like around the eyes and nose.

Angled Radiance Creme Brush

The other brush included in this set is the Angled Radiance Creme Brush. It has an angled edge that really hugs your cheekbones. The bristles are fabulous for cream blush application, blending the blush so naturally it creates a beautiful, glowy flush. I think my three products alone are worth the $59.96 price tag, but there are even more goodies included that Marcia has for review.

MARCIA is sharing Je Ne Sais Quoi! Lipstick and Creme Blush

Once you open this fabulous TSV you’ll find two Je Ne Sais Quoi products – one brand new and one revamped. Let me start with the revamped lipstick.

Just the other day when I wrote about Pantone 2016 Colors I showed you a picture of Je Ne Sais Quoi Blurred Lines Smooth Fill Lipstick. When I opened my new lipstick I found that the color wasn’t the same but the technology was. Originally the lipstick was almost clear and your body’s chemistry changed it to suit you. Now the lipstick is tinted pink and comes in a special iridescent white case. So pretty, so nourishing, full on color that has collagen and hyaluronic filling spheres to make your lips look your most beautiful ever.

Now to the exciting part for me (don’t get me wrong though, I adore the foundation too). A creme blush!!!! I am a creme blush fanatic so I was especially excited to find this in the QVC TSV. This too is named Je Ne Sais Quoi, officially IT COSMETICS CC+ VITALITY BRIGHTENING CREME BLUSH in JE NE SAIS QUOI. Call me thrilled.

IT Cosmetics CC+ Vitality Brightening Creme Blush in Je Ne Sais Quoi

IT Cosmetics CC+ Vitality Brightening Creme Blush in Je Ne Sais Quoi

The blush tries to trick you but you’ll be thrilled with its trickiness. It appears as a pink in the compact but when I swatched it I found it look very light. So light in fact that I worried that it wouldn’t show up. But like the lipstick it’s a color correcting anti-aging creme blush. It starts off light (see picture below) but then deepens on its own to a very natural pink. It never gets too deep on me but it’s not too light either. It’s, to quote Goldilocks, “just right”. The Angled Radiance Creme Brush described above is a great tool to smooth this onto your cheeks.

If you add up the products in this TSV they’d cost you $214.00. But like all IT Cosmetics TSV’s the price is amazing at $59.96. The TSV number is A272018 for a one time buy and A276946 for auto delivery. Don’t miss out on this great deal and the opportunity to have your most beautiful skin ever.

Think Pink with Osmosis Blush in Pink Pearl

Think pink

Think Pink

A new year and it’s back to Think Pink. I get so excited when I find a pink cosmetic product to share with you and today I have one that I just can’t get enough of: OSMOSIS COLOUR BLUSH in PINK PEARL. I haven’t stopped wearing this blush since I was lucky enough to receive it to test out. I don’t generally lean toward powder blush but Osmosis has changed my mind.

When I look at my pictures of this blush I see some peach to it but on my cheeks it’s the perfect pink. With some blushes I have to worry about the intensity of the color that will end up on my cheeks but that’s not the case with this Osmosis Colour Blush. It glides on giving me the perfect dusting of blush the first time. I can build upon it if I want but I don’t have the dreaded fear of blush overdose.

Osmosis Colour Pink Pearl blush

Osmosis Colour Pink Pearl blush

Osmosis Colour uses mineral pigments that are safe for you. This blush gives me a natural luminous appearance. It contains green tea extract to neutralize free radicals and moringa seed oil which hydrates and nourishes. Also Vitamins A and C to boost firmness and elasticity.

Osmosis Colour Pink Pearl blush

Osmosis Colour Pink Pearl blush

Pink Pearl is described as a soft pink. It’s silky soft and lasts a full 8 hours without fading. It’s not the least bit chalky nor is it difficult to blend. The shade is a warm pink so it’s not going to make people turn their heads to see if you stuck bubble gum on your face. It’s soft and enhances my features.

Osmosis Colour Pink Pearl blush

Osmosis Colour Pink Pearl blush

The blush comes in 5 shades: Nude Bliss (nude-mauve), Summer Rose (berry pink; looks gorgeous!!), Spring Crush (soft coral), Pink Pearl and Plum Blossom (soft purple tones with satin finish). Right now on Dermstore these $27 blushes comes with an Osmosis Concealer (a $33 value). There are 4 other shades available but I haven’t found them.

A perfect blush to start the year and continue making me Think Pink. — Marcia

Think Pink with Stila Aqua Glow Watercolor Blush

Think pink

Think pink

The hardest thing about Stila’s Aqua Glow Watercolor Blush is picking a color you want to buy. Everything else is super easy since it’s a cinch to use and wear.

Stila Aqua Glow Watercolor Blush in Water Lily

Stila Aqua Glow Watercolor Blush in Water Lily

There are 5 shades available and the online swatches all looked beautiful so I took a stab in the dark and picked Water Lily since it looked fresh and vibrant.

Stila Water Lily Aqua Blush (beauty.com)

Stila Water Lily Aqua Blush (beauty.com)

This Aqua Glow Watercolor Blush is totally different than any blush product I own because it really is watery. The formula says it’s a water based gel but I find it more watery than gel-like. It’s packaged in a small jar with a mesh top. You need to shake it very well and then be careful with the amount of product you use.

It feels like nothing when you apply it yet you will feel a slight cooling effect. This is a sheer blush that you can build up but my advice is to start with a very small amount, dab it on your cheek where you typically use blush. Then do the other cheek. Now stand back and check your face. If it’s not enough then go back and build it up but not too much.

Stila Aqua Glow Watercolor Blush in Water Lily

Stila Aqua Glow Watercolor Blush in Water Lily

Water Lily is a warm pink shade (although beauty.com calls it a rose pink) that goes on sheer but lasts well throughout the day. I’d say I get about 6 – 8 hours wear before needing to refresh it. It’s a great blush if you have “Disappearing Blush Problem” aka DBP. People who are affected by DBP find their blush vanishes easily. But using this Stila Aqua Glow as a base and then following up with a powder is the answer to longer lasting blush. While this is not a medically proven problem, it really does happen to too many people. I’m working on a foundation to study this phenomenon (not).

I’m not sure if I’ll buy another shade of this or not but I am attracted to the coolness of Water Blossom described as Pink Violet.
