Susan Posnick knows how to give good face with ColorFlo and ColorCorrect

Susan Posnick ColorFlo Foundation

Susan Posnick ColorFlo Foundation

Susan Posnick has created some great innovative products but what really stands out about the line is her method of delivery. We’ve been sent some Susan Posnick products for review and are impressed with what we’ve found. ColorFlo is an unusual foundation because the packaging is mineral foundation in a self-dispensing refillable brush. With 12 foundation shades from Porcelain to Chestnut you are sure to find a match. And to make it even easier if you look at the link you’ll see models and the right shade for them. On those same models they will also picture the ColorCorrect Pencil that works best for your skintone.

ColorFlo is a natural mineral foundation that helps block the sun. It has a natural SPF so no numbers are assigned. This foundation is so gentle that it’s recommended to be used even if you’ve recently had dermalogical work done like facials, light peels or photo facials. There are many benefits that Susan Posnick shares about the foundation.susan posnick awardBenefits:

Lisa’s ColorFlo review

SIMPLY BRUSH AND GO COLORFLO mineral foundation ($68) is a truly terrific mineral powder foundation. I am completely in love with the ingenius packaging and refill option. The mineral makeup is in the base of the brush; just one flick of the wrist and the brush fills with the powder foundation.

This is THE perfect foundation for traveling thanks to the amazing packaging. The foundation gives medium coverage as well as sun protection. It does not look powdery on, more along the lines of smooth and creamy. The finish is beautiful and glowy. I find it does a terrific job of covering redness in particular. I use this on my face, neck, chest…it even works on arms, hands, and legs to cover up veins and discoloration. It also works great as a finishing powder.

There is great depth in terms of shades offered, with 12 shades from Porcelain to Chestnut. My perfect shade is M3, Light Neutral. The foundation has nine ingredients, including zinc oxide to block UVA rays and lots of antioxidants like vitamins A and E. It does have Bismuth in it, which I know bothers some people, but I have been using the foundation for several weeks and it hasn’t broken me out at all.

Overall, I really love this foundation and throw it in my purse every morning. It’s great over other foundation or just by itself!

Marcia’s ColorFlo shade and ColorCorrect review

I was sent ColorFlo foundation in M1 Porcelain, their lightest shade. I probably should have gone with M3 aka Light Neutral since the porcelain is so light and ethereal. But that doesn’t mean that I’m not using Porcelain. M1 Porcelain is a shade I’d recommend to you as a finishing/setting powder. It’s great for me to use at home or out & about. The packaging keeps it from spilling and I don’t need any other tools when I want to “powder my nose”.

I also received ColorCorrect ($22) which is a dual ended brightening/correcting pencil. While there are only 4 pencils, it’s possible to match every shade of their foundation. To help match the company has a great Shade Selector but you can also use this chart:

  • Use C1 with COLORFLO shades M1-M5
  • Use C2 with COLORFLO shades M5-M8
  • Use C3 with COLORFLO shades M8-M11
  • Use C4 with COLORFLO shades M9-M12

    Susan Posnick ColorCorrect (C1)

    Susan Posnick ColorCorrect (C1)

I have the pencil in C1 and it too is a great tool for home or out & about. One side has the Brightener and the other side the Corrector.

The Brightener has so many uses for me. I’ve used it under my eyes as a concealer; on my browbone as a highlighter; and as an ‘almost’ lipliner to help with making my lips look fuller. I especially like it on the inner corner of my eye since it camouflages the darkness there.

The darker side is the Corrector and that’s very useful for neutralizing discoloration wherever they are. I always have redness by the side of my nose so I can pinpoint this area easily with the pencil. Dot it on a leftover pimple mark, small sunspots and broken capillaries. I use my finger after I’ve applied it and just hold it on the corrector to warm it and then lightly melt it into my skin.

With these Susan Posnick babies I’m ready to go at any time. I think they are a great travel companion (and they never talk back).

You can purchase Susan Posnick products online or go to their finder to see if there’s a store near you that carries the line.

Dark circles begone with Teamine Eye Complex and Concealer

Teamine Eye Complex and Concealer

Teamine Eye Complex and Concealer

This aging stuff has got to stop. It can be a little depressing to see a new line in your face. Unless you partake in plastic surgery you need to take care of your skin and help slow down the signs of aging. The newest weapon in my arsenal comes courtesy of Revision Skincare and their Teamine Eye Complex and Teamine Concealer.

These are two separate items that work in tandem. Each work well alone but combined they are superpowers sort of like Batman and Robin. The eye complex is Batman and the concealer is Robin.

Teamine Eye Complex

Teamine Eye Complex

Teamine Eye Complex aka Batman

Teamine Eye Complex aka Batman

Batman, aka Teamine Eye Complex, is the work horse in this duo. It’s the more potent product and the one I’d pick if I could only have one. Revision Skincare realizes that there are many causes for dark circles so they’ve worked to address this problem in a variety of ways. Their goal is to visibly diminish dark under eye circles, smooth the appearance of fine lines under and around your eyes and to firm and brighten. That’s a lot to ask of one cream but then again this is Batman we are talking about.

Teamine Eye Complex

Teamine Eye Complex

Teamine Eye Complex contains natural minerals, mica, silica and titanium dioxide, to help immediately brighten the skin and diffuse light to minimize the look of fine lines. It’s a wonderful daytime eye cream. I always mix a little bit of eye cream with the concealer or corrector I’m going to use under my eyes so when I first started using the Eye Complex that what I did. I absolutely noticed a firmness and brightening. Teamine Eye Complex also contains green tea and THD ascorbate to help with anti-aging benefits.

Teamine Concealer

Teamine Concealer

Teamine Concealer

Teamine Concealer

Robin, aka Teamine Concealer, is great alone but works even better with his partner. Teamine Concealer isn’t a heavy duty concealer. It’s better to think of this as a treatment that works to reduce dark circles and fine lines since it only lightly conceals. It’s meant for long term use and not as a spot concealer. It contains anti-aging benefits with powerful antioxidants like Troxerutin, Brazilian Ginseng, South American Marapuama and White Lily Extract all to help reduce the appearance of dark circles. Other ingredients (green tea, co-q10, vitamin E, grape fruit extract and THD Ascorbate) provide the antioxidant benefits.

I use Teamine Concealer after I use the Eye Complex. I like to apply concealer in a V shape under my eyes and I do that with Teamine too. I’ll then go on to the rest of my routine. If I need more concealing I’ll try to use a concealer over my foundation and blend it carefully with my fingers. The warmth of fingers and as little manipulation as possible is what gives the most natural look.

Revision Skincare and Teamine products are sold at local medical spas and doctor’s offices. I put my zip code in the locator and found 16 locations that were available within a 25 mile radius of my home and three were actually extremely close by. My Batmobile would get me there in no time flat.

The final item is worth the price of admission alone.  I adore the Bye Bye Under Eye and Hello Light Liquid Brightener Dual End Concealer.  One side is the iconic IT Cosmetics concealer with a sponge applicator.  This is my favorite concealer because it really covers all skin sins.  It blends beautifully and leaves skin looking flawless, which is pretty impressive given my super dark under eye circles.  The other end is the Hello Light Liquid Brightener, which is fabulous for highlighting under eyes, tops of cheekbones, the center of the nose to slim its appearance, the inner corner of the eyes…there are so many ways to use this!

The New Year, Your Most Beautiful You! Five-Piece Collection is an outstanding value.  Make an appointment with yourself to check in with QVC on Saturday, December 28th so you don’t miss this absolutely fantastic bargain.  - Lisa

Top Ten Tuesday – favorite concealers

Every other Tuesday the Top Ten bloggers share items we’d like you to know about. Concealers are something very few of us can live without. As I age it seems that there’s more to conceal. I’m not ready to give up the fight. These are concealers that I own and use all the time. Can you find 10 that you love? — Marcia

1. YSL Touche Eclat – Technically this is not a concealer, it’s a highlighter. But I find that it gives me a lift with its luminizing quality that takes people’s eyes (or my mind) away from the dark circles. Unfortunately the price keeps going up on this but one can last me for a year so the $40 that it costs is more than worth it. I buy and I try every product like this but none seem to compare.

2. IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer – I’ve mentioned this concealer about 254,690 times on Beauty Info Zone. It was a miracle when I first discovered it and it remains a miracle to this day. Absolutely a favorite of mine.

3. IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concentrate* – This is the newest concealer from IT Cosmetics and it’s much more heavy duty than the original. It’s actually a “corrector” which you can use to conceal or correct.

4. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Skin Conceal* -  When I need true concealing then I pull out this OCC Concealer. It’s incredible since it comes in 12 multi-ethnic shades, is paraben free, is cruelty free and is free of all the other nasties. This $20 pot will last you forever since it’s so concentrated. I wear this in Y1 (light yellow based skintone) and in RO (palest red based skintone) though not at the same time.

5. Benefit Fake-Up – When I bought this I had some misgivings. I hadn’t had a lot of luck with Benefit but there was something about it that appealed to me. I ended up using it almost every day this past summer. The outer core is an eye balm with the inner core being the concealer. It’s moisturizing and a double duty product. I probably need more moisturizing now that it’s colder so I should start using it again.

6. Senna Highlight Concealer – As much as I love this Senna Concealer in Lite, I miss the original concealer that got me stuck on Senna – Cameo. Luckily I have some in my possession. The light peach of Cameo counteracts my dark circles. I’ve used up at least 3 of them. Lite is close but not quite peachy enough. Yet it’s a great creamy concealer.

7. Three Custom Colors aka 3CC – This is another concealer that I’ve used for quite a while though I haven’t bought it recently. It’s very creamy and doesn’t settle into my undereye creases. It also can be used as a foundation using a damp sponge and patting it on your skin. On the 3CC website it comes in 10 colors including two very dark shades which is nice for a change.

8. Tarte Smooth Operator* – Tarte’s concealer in stick form is an affordable alternative to Cle de Peau and Le Metier de Beaute in my opinion. They feel and look similar on my eyes yet Smooth Operator won’t hurt your credit card. It’s one of their more full coverage concealers. I’ve been using this so much lately that I’m worried about finishing it which means more shopping (what a hardship!).

9. Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Waterproof Concealer* – Maracuja Concealer was my first Tarte concealer love and I haven’t forgotten it, I just cheat on it at times. I had to buy a backup since I’m so close to finishing my original. I love this creamy liquid for under my eyes especially.

10.  Dior Nude Skin Perfecting Hydrating Concealer – That’s a mouthful but it does what it says. This is a revamp of their original Dior Nude Concealer and this newer one is more hydrating than it used to be. Color and texture are the same so if you loved the original, you’ll love this one more. It was recommended to me by a Nordstrom MA that I trust and she was absolutely right about it.

Well I could go on and on since I haven’t mentioned Dior Skinflash or any of my half dozen MAC Concealers but I decided not to cheat (this time). Have you used any of my Top Ten? Which concealer is your favorite? — Marcia

Now it’s time to find out what concealers the other bloggers love and want us to buy!!
[inlinkz_linkup id=318169]

Tarte full coverage concealers are the way to go

Tarte has one of the best selections of concealers available. No matter what coverage you want or what texture you like, you’ll find it with tarte. This is a brand that we recommend all the time when people ask us what concealer they should buy. If you shop at Sephora or Ulta they sell Maracuja Creaseless Concealer and Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Waterproof Full Coverage Concealer. If you shop at tarte online they sell Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Waterproof Concealer. If you are a QVC shopper then you can find Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Concealer. Today we are writing a Side by Side review on the two Full Coverage options.

Lisa’s Choice: It’s no secret, tarte is a big favorite here at the BIZ. Lately we have been loving the Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Concealer (available along with a dual-ended brush on QVC for $28, sometimes on special for less).  The concealer comes in five shades, including Fair, Light, Medium, Tan, and Deep.  I was sent four of the five shades to try.

Luckily, this concealer covers up what I would prefer to keep a secret – those truly horrible dark circles under my eyes. I absolutely need a heavy duty concealer otherwise I look incredibly tired. Plus those dark areas are really aging, aren’t they? In fact, if I had to pick only one cosmetic item to wear, I would pick concealer. And I would pick this concealer.

The perfect shade for my somewhere between fair and medium skin is Light. This is a thick, creamy concealer that goes on slightly wet so there’s plenty of time to blend before it dries down to a full coverage but still natural looking finish.  What I really love is how it lasts.  I put this on at 5 a.m., and it lasts for a good 8 hours before starting to fade.  This is definitely my favorite concealer from tarte.

MARCIA’S CHOICE: I love tarte concealers and have quite a collection including some that were unique to tarte’s website and some from QVC’s TSV specials. I have two favorites that both match my skin perfectly and work wonderfully for my complexion. The first is the Maracuja Creaseless Concealer that I love so much that I’ve bought my second one since the one I was sent is almost used up. You can read about Maracuja HERE.

Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Waterproof Concealer

Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Waterproof Concealer

My newest love (and I do mean love) is tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Waterproof Concealer. This stick of wonder reminds me of my expensive Le Metier de Beaute Peau Vierge Anti-Aging Correcteur’ SPF 16 Concealer ($95)!! Instead you can spend $22 on a concealer that is all that the LMdB one is plus it’s cruelty free, has no parabans or phthalates, and uses the miraculous ingredient of Amazonian Clay.

tarte smooth operator concealer

tarte smooth operator concealer

Smooth Operator comes in 8 shades so there’s one for everyone. I wear this in Fair which is the lightest. Other shades are Fair-Light, Light, Light-Medium Beige, Light-Medium Honey, Medium, Tan and Deep. This too is a full coverage concealer so Lisa and I are giving you two choices to pick from.

From the way this applies though you’d never pick it as a full coverage product. It is very smooth (as the name tells us) and glides on. It’s recommended by both tarte and me that you use your fingers for this. How I use it is to apply it in a V shape under my eye, leave it on for 15 seconds and then smooth it with my finger. The warmth from my body helps this melt into my skin for a more air-brushed look.

Smooth Operator is crease free for me and is buildable if necessary. It’s a delight to own and wear and has become a much used option for me.

Now that you’ve seen the different types of tarte concealers available, which do you think would be best for you? We don’t think that any choice would be the wrong one but we are curious souls.

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concentrate – you’ll love it

 

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concentrate Cream

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concentrate Cream

If you read Beauty Info Zone you know that we are mad for It Cosmetics. We’ve been fortunate enough to try so much of the line and we keep falling deeper and deeper in love. When we were sent the Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concentrate we weren’t sure if It Cosmetics could beat the original Bye Bye Under Eye. We’ve both used that for years and agree that it ranks right up there as favorites.

It Cosmetics doesn’t stand on its laurels though, they are always coming out with new products and trying to improve what’s available. Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concentrate is one of those products. If you notice, it’s called a Corrector Concentrate, not concealer. It comes in three shades – Light for fair to light skin tones, Medium for light to medium skin tones, and Rich for tan to rich skin tones. It was created as a corrector which is why there are less shades. Correctors are especially important under your eyes to cover the circles and discoloration that you might have in that area.

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concentrate Cream  ingredients

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concentrate Cream ingredients

Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concentrate was specially made as an anti-aging product. It contains the benefits of skincare while also providing full coverage correction. Ingredients include  green coffee extract, niacin, hylauronic acid, peptides, cucumber, avocado, and hydrolyzed collagen; all ingredients that we look for in our skincare.

This sells for $38 at QVC and Ulta and comes with the great brush for application. On to the reviews!!

MARCIA’S SIDE:

I’m convinced that all of us over a certain age have issues under our eyes. They might be dark circles, puffiness, discoloration or just plain old dullness. I’ve yet to meet someone that doesn’t complain about what to use under their eyes to correct their problems.

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concentrate

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concentrate

When I opened up this corrector I instantly thought of the Bye Bye Redness that I previously reviewed since the packaging is the same and it comes with a small brush that’s perfect for the product. But Bye Bye Redness is a very creamy product and you have to be careful that you don’t get too much out; Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concealer Cream on the other hand is quite dense and you have to work a little to get the product out. I’m thrilled that it comes with the brush since my nails are long and small pots don’t work that well for me. Plus the brush is perfect for application.

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concentrate in Light

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concentrate in Light

Because the consistency is on the hard side what I do is put some eye cream on my hand or steel palette, I pick up the It Corrector Cream with the brush and then blend it on my hand with the eye cream. It lightens up the texture so that it’s now easy to apply. I apply it in a V shape under my eyes with the brush, then go back and blend it in. I also use this where I have any redness or small spots, especially at the side of my nose where it’s always redder than the rest of my face.

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concentrate blended

I’ve got to say that I really love the full coverage of this and I expect to use it up until every bit of it is gone. I only need a little bit at a time though so it’s going to last me for months. The shade Light is perfect for me as a concealer but I think that even Medium might work but strictly as a corrector for my insomniac under eye area.

LISA’S SIDE:

IT

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye UnderEye Corrector packaging

I am a big, big fan of IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Concealer, the one in the squeeze tube. I have very dark undereye circles no matter how much I sleep or how good I feel, so I need a heavy duty concealer. I love the original concealer so much that I was skeptical I would like this one…but I really, really like it. As Marcia mentioned, this isn’t just a concealer, it’s a corrector, so it leans peach in terms of color. I think that it does a great job of covering the blue under my eyes, so I often use the corrector on the blue areas, then the concealer in a V from the outside of my eye to my nose.

I love the brush, it’s a fantastic little guy that is perfect for cream products and it fits just perfectly in all those odd shaped areas on the face.

this is Light – it’s illuminating and the peach tones cancel out the blue

Bye Bye Under Eye Corrector Concealer Cream has a beautiful creamy consistency but it doesn’t crease at all throughout the day. I swatched it above on my tanned hands, and you can really see how illuminating the Light shade is. I would love to try the Medium, I could probably use it alone as both a corrector and a concealer. For now, though, with my faux-tanned skin I use the light to change my blue to a normal skin tone…and it works magic. IT Cosmetics hasn’t failed me yet!

In the October issue of Marie Claire magazine this was chosen as the top “most wanted” item for under eye circles. Even Marie Claire readers agree with us. Now it’s your turn to try it and agree with us.
