Rita Hazan Root Concealer Touch Up Stick is a double duty treat

Rita Hazan Root Concealer Touch Up Stick

I’m hair obsessed these days. Not only have I been trying new hair treatment products but I’m also using new tools. I am one of those people who has always been very conscious of good (and bad) hair days. My obsession has extended to my eyebrows and eyelashes too as you’ll be seeing in upcoming reviews.

Rita Hazan Root Concealer

One of the new products that I’m really appreciating is by Rita Hazan, the well known hair color innovator. She’s in every magazine article when it relates to hair color and famous people like Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry, and more. Now we can all take advantage of her amazing skills with her home care line.

I was sent the Rita Hazan ROOT CONCEALER, Touch Up Stick in two shades (three are available) and I’m using them daily. These are an extension of her already famous Root Concealer Touch Up Spray but these are the Temple & Brow Edition.

These are fat crayon like pencils that need no sharpening as they wind up. They can be used to cover up those pesky grays that pop up before you need to recolor your hair. But what I love about using them is that they are perfect for my eyebrows.

I’m no longer able to run out of the house without touching up my eyebrows. They’ve thinned so much due to age and prior illness that they aren’t the same as they used to be.

As you can see, Rita Hazan’s Root Touch Up Stick fills in my eyebrows completely making them instagram ready! It’s so natural looking on me because it fills in my brows fully – no patches left behind.

Not only do the Touch Up Sticks mask the few gray hairs that I notice but they completely define my eyebrows. The pencil grips my brow hair easily and is easy to build up if necessary. I’ve had brow pencils that seem to take away the color as I’ve tried to build it up but this just glides on. If I go a little too far it’s easy to remove for a few minutes.

The pencils are just as great for roots and those little silvery hairs around my temple. With my roots I use the side of the pencil and feather in the color along my part. The box comes with a spoolie that helps blend the color into your roots to make them look more natural.

Rita Hazan Dark Brown/Black and Light Brown

There are only 3 shades available which might be a problem for some. Dark Brown/Black is recommended for deepest brown shades like ebony, raven and deep-dark espresso. Light Brown isn’t really light in my opinion although I do apply it with a lot of pressure. It’s best for lighter brown shades like chocolate, chestnut, amber and sable. And Dark Blonde is for dark blonde shades like dark honey, ash blondes and light caramel.

Rita Hazan Root Concealer Touch Up Stick is perfect for on the go. You can travel with it, keep it in your cosmetic bag, and touch up as needed. If you are like me you’ll love it as a water-resistant eyebrow color that lasts the entire day.

Bring your brows to life with Full Brow

Full Brow

Full Brow

Beauty Info Zone has been publishing for just under 7 years but the first few years of this blog I was missing something major – eyebrow makeup. I never gave a thought to my eyebrows and any photos of me were with bare brows. My brows were full enough and I just never thought about doing anything other than tweezing.

Well that’s all changed now. After several illnesses my hair changed and that included my eyebrows and eyelashes. The eyebrows that I didn’t need to use makeup on now look bare without. You might be shaking your head right now and saying “no, that’s not me” “no, that won’t happen to me” but yes it can and yes it will. Life happens so that means you need to be prepared. Just look at your mom’s brows to see how they’ve changed over the years.

That’s where FULL BROW comes in. This Australian company sent me products to test and I’m officially thanking them right now. Oh and my brows thank them too.

Full Brow

Full Brow

The products I’m using from Full Brow are Brow Powder (in Dark), Brow Wax, and their Brow Brush. I also have a travel size of the Highlighter which I’ve used a few times.

Full Brow Brow Powder in Dark

Full Brow Brow Powder in Dark

This is my hero product from Full Brow. When I first opened the package and saw the shade that was named Dark I thought it was a misnomer. It looked gray to me not like a dark brow shade.

Full Brow Dark Brow Powder

Full Brow Dark Brow Powder

Better light proved that it was actually a dark enough shade for a brunette. My worry though is the front of my brows which have permanently lost hair. I’m slowly growing some back using Wink Lash and Brow Enhancing Oil but I’m eager to have real looking brows. Those fears are allayed with this powder. I’m really loving how naturally this fills in my eyebrows. Using the excellent Brow Brush I start by outlining the top of my brows, then I go back and fill in the hairs smoothing them out to look natural yet full.

Full Brow brush

Full Brow brush

On to the Brow Wax, a totally clear wax that isn’t heavy at all. I’ve tried other waxes that I could feel on my eyes but this one is lightweight enough to hold everything in place yet doesn’t feel sticky. Its purpose is to keep your brows in place so that you can forget about them. It contains antioxidants and oils so it’s nourishing your brows while doing its job.

Full Brow Brow Wax

Full Brow Brow Wax

I have to give an extra rave for their brow brush. It’s not the only one in my collection but it’s one of the best I’ve used. The bristle end is just stiff enough to apply and blend the powder and wax without being harsh. (I still have my original brow brush from Smashbox that actually hurts when I try to use it.) The spoolie end of the Full Brows brush is nicely shaped and helps me keep my brows shapely.

While I just have a mini size of the brow highlighter I’ve gotten to like it. It’s a very light golden shade that isn’t sparkly yet nicely illuminates the area just under the arch of my brow or just above it.

The Brow Powder is available in 4 shades (blonde, taupe, natural brown, and dark) at Free People and 7 shades at their Australian website. For those of us in the US or Canada, shipping is more reasonably priced through Free People.

Full Brow is making my look a whole lot better and I’m delighted to look in the mirror and not look incomplete. This is worth a try by all, especially us brow challenged women.  —  Marcia

Pick just 5 products from Pixi Beauty? Ooh that’s hard.

It’s Marcia’s turn to be Queen for the Day with the Beauty Spotlight Team. We’ve each chosen a brand that we love to showcase for our readers. You’ve read Never Say Die Beauty’s Too Faced picks along with Justina’s Clinique favorites. Now that it’s my turn I’m picking Pixi Beauty because I wear something from Pixi every single day.pixi-favorites-all

Pixi Beauty is in a class of its own. It’s an independent beauty company that has reasonable mass market prices with department store quality. You can buy most of their line by going to your closest Target or by ordering online through Target.com or on Pixi’s website where you’ll find even more products from them.                                                                       press samples, personal products

Choosing just 5 was a chore since I easily could have chosen a dozen but I narrowed it down as I’m a rule follower. All of my choices are so reasonably priced that your wallet will barely weigh less after picking these up.

Pixi Beauty Summer Glow palette

Pixi Beauty Summer Glow palette

Pixi by Petra has many great palettes so why did I choose the Summer Glow palette (Palette Bronzette) when summer is coming to an end? Two reasons – 1) it’s a great quality palette with eye shades and face shades and 2) it’s being discontinued so I wanted you to get in on the fact that this $28 palette is now only $14 while it lasts. With 12 shadows and liners and 3 facial products this works all year round. “Gilded bronzes, taupes & peaches for eyes + matte bronze, golden beige highlight & pink sheen for complexion.” I have gotten more use out of this Bronzette Palette than any of my Pixi Palettes. Perfect for travel and at $14 you don’t want to miss out.

Pixi Beauty Brow Powder Palette

Pixi Beauty Brow Powder Palette

This brow palette is my most used item from Pixi and I’ll soon be buying a backup. I’ve tried so many brow products and liked most but I love the Pixi Brow Powder palette. As you can see from this recent picture there are two shades that get tons of love while the others get used once in a while but those two shades are perfection for me. It’s hard for me to believe that this 6 color palette is only $12. My hair color changes every 3-4 weeks so it’s easy for me to vary the color of these powders. They are thick enough to stick around, they aren’t powdery meaning no fallout, and this removes easily with water which means less hair to lose. If I had to pick just one item of the 5 this Pixi Brow Powder Palette would be my keeper.

Pixi Multibalms

Pixi Multibalms

Pixi Multibalms: top Baby Petal, Sheer Sculpt, Soft Strawberry; bottom Watermelon Veil, Wild Rose

Pixi Multibalms: top Baby Petal, Sheer Sculpt, Soft Strawberry; bottom Watermelon Veil, Wild Rose

Pixi Multibalms are my newest love from Pixi Beauty. (Be sure you enter my giveaway to win them!) I’m a huge fan of cream products and almost always pick a cream blush over a powder blush. I’ve been wearing one every day since I received these. There’s one for every color wardrobe and one for every mood. If you twist my arm to ask my favorites I’d pick Watermelon Veil and Wild Rose. At $12 each you can have several for the price of one from a different brand. The Multibalms are great for an easy on the go lip color too so you’ll look coordinated. These are infused with aloe vera, shea butter and rose hip oil adding to my love for these.

Pixi Skintreats Nourishing Lip Polish

Pixi Skintreats Nourishing Lip Polish

Picking out just one lip product from the many wonderful ones that Pixi Beauty has was the hardest task of all. I love the shea butter lip balms, tinted brilliance balm crayons and Mattelustre lipsticks. But the product that gets used daily is the Nourishing Lip Polish. Another $12 product that is a 2-in-1 lip exfoliator and nourisher. Not only does it protect my dry lips but it has a circulation factor with the unique applicator. You massage the sweet nutrient rich formula onto your lips with the applicator. You’ll want one in every bathroom, your purse, and nightstand.

Pixi by Petra Nail Colours

Pixi by Petra Nail Colours

Nobody ever talks about Pixi’s Nail Colours and I don’t know why. They are terrific. They are 3 free and chip resistant. There are 42 shades for only $8 each. These slim bottles last for many manicures yet take up a small amount of space in my collection. Shown above are Gilded Garnet, Amethyst Amore, Fuchsia Dew and Sweet Strawberry. I’ve found some on sale at my local Target so I’m always checking for them. Like all products from Pixi they are cruelty-free. A Pixi polish is always a fun addition to my life.

While these are my favorites they are just at the top of a long list of products I recommend from Pixi Beauty. What about you? Any favorites from Pixi? Any you know you need to add ASAP?  —  Marcia

How wunderful is Wunderbrow?

Wunder2 Wunderbrow Blonde

When you need brow help the search is on for the best eyebrow products available. There are so many more eyebrow products available than I ever imagined but many are quite similar to each other. WUNDERBROW has a unique formula, unlike others that I’ve tried. When I was offered an opportunity to try this out I was happy to say yes.

Wunderbrow tube and spoolie

Wunderbrow tube and spoolie

Wunderbrow ($22) is available in 4 shades: Blonde, Auburn, Black/Brown and Brunette. I have Brunette but I’m aching to try this in black/brown too. Brunette is a bit warmer than I normally wear but it’s definitely doable.

Wunderbrow shades

Wunderbrow shades

Why is this so unique?

  1. It is formulated with an exclusive formula – Permafix Gel Technology.
  2. It also contains proprietary Hair Fiber Complex.
  3. These two components infuse together to create what Wunderbrow calls a flexible matrix, it locks color and fiber onto your brows.
  4. It mimics the appearance of natural hair so it’s especially useful for thinning brows or gray hair in brows.

Permafix Gel Technology and Hair Fiber Complex create a semi-permanent finish that can last up to 72 hours. I’ve allowed it to last for 48 hours but that means purposely making sure not to use eye makeup remover on my brows. Wunderbrow has a remover, Wundercleanse ($8.95), in case you find it difficult to remove. Inside the box you’ll find the Wunderbrow tube along with a spoolie to help groom your brows.

Wunderbrow wand

The formula is very wet so I try to remember to apply this before I apply any other eye makeup. I keep the spoolie handy to make sure I’m smoothing it on evenly because this dries in under two minutes. First I brush my eyebrows with the spoolie and make sure they look even with nothing taking flight. Next I slowly and carefully apply the gel using my magnifying mirror. At first it looks wet but it does dry down to a glossy finish. Wunderbrow will last you the entire day without moving. Even in very humid weather if I touch my brows I don’t end up with color elsewhere. It stays!

Wunderbrow Brunette swatch

Now the big questions are – do I like this and why don’t I have a brow picture? I absolutely couldn’t get a good shot of this on my brows. Sadly it looked patchy in the closeup that I use for eye shots. But in person, even in my magnifying mirror, it looks great. I’ve asked my husband to put on his glasses and tell me what he thought and he didn’t notice patchiness. Do I like this? Actually I do though now I want the darker shade. It’s not as fast for me to use as they advertise “creates the perfect, envious set of brows in under 2 minutes” but that’s partly because I’m klutzy and want to make sure the gel is placed evenly.wunderbrow info

All in all this is a great new alternative to the many pencils, powders, and creams you probably have already. When you are brow challenged like I am then you want alternatives and Wunderbrow is definitely a great option.  — Marcia

Truth Vitality helps our aging heads and maybe yours with a giveaway

truth in aging logoThe website Truth in Aging carries an amazing amount of products that will help us as we go through the aging process. You can count on them for over 20 brands and one of their newest is Truth Vitality which is a line of products especially designed for women with fine hair or women with thinning hair, those who’d simply like more voluminous hair on their head or eyebrows. We were sent a few products to see if it helped our aging heads.

LISA’S PRODUCTS:

What does your shower drain look like? It is a messy tangle of hair?? I shudder when I see mine…I can’t believe I am losing that much hair every time I shampoo and condition. Truth Vitality Shampoo and Conditioner promised me less shedding, so I was more than happy to give them a whirl.

Truth Vitality True Volume Shampoo and Conditioner

Truth Vitality True Volume Shampoo and Conditioner

It’s funny, for hair products that promise volume the formulas are certainly on the thin side…but they do deliver every promise.

Their nourishing formulas are infused with a unique copper peptide complex to encourage hair growth, as well as powerful antioxidants, vitamins, and extracts to rebuild struggling strands from the inside out.

The True Volume Shampoo’s formula is loaded with beneficial ingredients to fight thinning hair, increase volume and strength, and stimulate new hair growth, including copper peptides, caffeine, ferulic acid, vitamin A, and beta carotene.

Our conditioner offers a unique combination of emu oil and copper peptides to stimulate the hair follicles, increasing their size and encouraging hair growth. There’s also caffeine, beta-sitosterol, Aspen bark extract, and macadamia nut oil to add strength, volume, and shine.

Truth Vitality True Volume Shampoo and Conditioner

I do see less hair in my drain so I know I am shedding less as I use the True Volume Shampoo and Conditioner. My hair feels very soft, floaty, and full. It’s shiny too! Volume hair products often leave my hair feeling coated, but these don’t – my fine hair loves them.

These two hair products retail for $64, but right now I see them on the Truth in Aging website as a duo for $54.40.

If you have fine or thinning hair, you will love this sulfate/silicone/paraben-free duo. If you want to address hair loss, I think this is an excellent option.

MARCIA’S PRODUCT:

Truth Vitality Brow Empower

Truth Vitality Brow Empower

BROW EMPOWER from Truth Vitality was created for people just like me. I never had to worry about my brows and gave them little thought. I’d pluck to keep strays away but they were full and I basically ignored them. Along came age and illness and my eyebrows are no longer what they were.

Truth Vitality Brow Empower

Truth Vitality Brow Empower

Brow Empower ($39) is a lightweight gel that you can apply day or night. It’s a light brown serum that will dry down so that you can apply eyebrow makeup over it. This stimulates healthy growth using a blend of copper peptides, vitamin B5, and emu oil. Copper peptides increase the size of hair follicles and stimulate new hair growth while the vitamin B5 and emu oil gently condition and smooth the hair strands.

Truth Vitality Brow Empower

Truth Vitality Brow Empower

The applicator of Brow Empower is a new technology and can break easily so you need to use some TLC with it. I admit that I dropped mine and it doesn’t work properly but I’m still using the product. I use a cotton swab to get the product and apply it to my brows that way. I’ll often then use the applicator to smooth it onto my brows.

Truth Vitality Brow Empower

Truth Vitality Brow Empower

Truth Vitality added a unique touch to this product. There is a small pin like tool that helps you keep the applicator top free from product. If it starts to clog up just wipe the metallic tip and orifice with a soft cloth or tissues and insert the pin. It clears it easily. I wish other products had thought to include something like this.

applicator for Brow Empower

applicator for Brow Empower

Something I found very interesting is that Truth in Aging has a community of testers so this and the other products in the Truth Vitality line have been tested and reviewed by them. I’ve started to see some brow growth and am finding new hairs. It’s so easy to use that I’ll continue this and hope that I can eventually see a fuller brow.

GIVEAWAY INFORMATION: Truth in Aging has kindly offered to send two winners products. You must be a US subscriber of Beauty Info Zone to enter. One subscriber will win the Truth Vitality Shampoo and Conditioner while another subscriber will win Truth Vitality Brow Empower. Your hardest job is to decide which of these would be best for your needs. The giveaway is open through 8/1/16 at 11:59 p.m. ET. If comments get cranky and close please email us at [email protected] with the subject Truth in Aging and make your comment there. Please remember that we verify all entries so keep it on the straight and narrow.

Why Chella Eyebrow Color Kit is a necessity to me

In the 6 years that I’ve been blogging I’ve gone from never touching my eyebrows except for some plucking to being extremely concerned about them. Never having to think about brows was easy. I’d do my entire face, spending forever on getting it just right, and not go near my eyebrows. Life happened though and through age and illness I now need to complete my eyebrows every single day.

Chella Tantalizing Taupe Eyebrow Color Kit

Chella Tantalizing Taupe Eyebrow Color Kit

Chella Eyebrow Color Kit is the perfect way for you to start on your eyebrow journey if you are anything like me. When this kit was sent for review I was thrilled, now I just need to fill in the pieces when needed. Chella’s eyebrow kits come in 6 great color combinations: Awesome Auburn, Beautiful Blonde, Dazzling Dark Brown, Elegant Ebony, Luscious Light Brown, and Tantalizing Taupe.

Awesome AuburnAwesome Auburn
Beautiful BlondeBeautiful Blonde
Dazzling Dark BrownDazzling Dark Brown
Beautiful BrownLuscious Light Brown
Tantalizing TaupeTantalizing Taupe
Elegant EbonyElegant Ebony

Each kit contains the Eyebrow Color Pencil, a highlighter pencil, an eyebrow defining gel, and a dual size pencil sharpener, along with a small booklet to help guide you into shaping your brows perfectly for your face.

Chella Tantalizing Taupe Eyebrow Color Kit

Chella Tantalizing Taupe Eyebrow Color Kit

While you can buy each of these products separately the kit, normally $$54, is on sale for $37.80 which is a great price for all 4 of these items.

Chella Tantalizing Taupe Eyebrow Color Pencil

Chella Tantalizing Taupe Eyebrow Color Pencil

The Tantalizing Taupe Eyebrow Color Pencil is a mechanical pencil that doesn’t drag at all. I can’t tell you how many pencils I’ve used that stop gliding while I’m in the middle of doing my brows. This is creamy and allows you to draw individual brow strokes or fill in the places that are sparse with ease. It’s also smudgeable when it’s newly applied but lasts throughout the day once set.

Chella Latte Highlighter Pencil

Chella Latte Highlighter Pencil

Each kit contains a highlighter pencil. In Tantalizing Taupe it happens to be the shade Latte which is too dark for me. But with other shades like Ivory Lace which I already owned I can tell why this is such a raved about product. The pencil is meant to brighten and visibly lift your eyes. I need a very light hand when using either of the shades I have since they are intensely pigmented. It’s a multi-use product that can be applied on the brow bone (either above or below your brow), to help with dark circles, blemishes and red spots. But wait, it’s also safe for your waterline and the inner corners of your eye. What more could you ask for??

Chella swatches: Tantalizing Taupe and Latte

Now with a pencil as thick as the Chella Highlighter you need a pencil sharpener and Chella did us a favor and put in a dual size Sharpener to meet all our needs.

Chella Highlighter Pencil and Dual Size Pencil Sharpener

Chella Highlighter Pencil and Dual Size Pencil Sharpener

That’s not the end of the products you need because this contains Chella Eyebrow Defining Gel. You especially want this in the summer. The clear gel helps hold your brow hairs in place and sets the color from the pencil. In the summer you get hot, inadvertently brush your hand across your face –  whoops, you’ve removed the color. This Eyebrow Defining Gel prevents that by keeping your brow color where it belongs without your brows feeling stiff.

Chella Brow Kit Eyebrow Defining Gel

Chella Brow Kit Eyebrow Defining Gel

4 perfect pieces + 2 uneven eyebrows + the desire to look your best all add up to a Chella Eyebrow Color Kit. Your eyebrows will thank you for the care.  —  Marcia

Sleek MakeUP makes summer shine even better with Precious Metals Highlighting Palette

Sleek Highlighting Palette in Precious Metals

Sleek Highlighting Palette in Precious Metals

Sleek MakeUP first came to my attention on Makeup Alley. The ladies there were going nuts over the amazing colors of their palettes and the even more amazing prices for this highly pigmented line. I ordered eyeshadows because I had to see what the fuss was about and I didn’t regret that one bit even though it was more expensive to get in the US. Happily now Sleek has made it easy to purchase their products on their website without the high prices and shipping.

Sleek MakeUP sent us a package of some of their newest products which Lisa and I have drooled over. She recently reviewed their VIP Lipsticks which are a semi-matte. I need to remind her that she promised me Private Booth. I took the Precious Metals Highlighting Palette and Eyebrow Stylist and I’m not promising them to her, I want them all to myself.

Sleek Precious Metals Highlighting Palette with names

Sleek Precious Metals Highlighting Palette with names

Sleek MakeUP Precous Metals Highlighting Palette is one of three Highlighting Palettes that they’ve created ($14.99) and it’s all I could ask for, especially with summer finally here. This is a high shine palette that contains 3 cream pans and one powder one. Some are more shimmery than others but all have a radiance that I love.

Sleek Precious Metals Highlighting Palette

Sleek Precious Metals Highlighting Palette

The four shades (clockwise from upper left) are Platinum, Royal Gold, Antique Bronze (powder), and Renaissance Gold. These are such versatile highlighters and I’ve found you can wear them anywhere on your face and also on your body. I L.O.V.E. them on my eyes. I’ve been a fan of cream eyeshadows for years and the Precious Metals palette is perfect for me. I start with an eyeshadow primer, apply the cream shades with my finger and usually put a powder eyeshadow in the crease or sometimes Antique Bronze there. It lasts the entire day without creasing or fading.

Sleek Precious Metals shades from website

Precious Metals: Platinum, Royal Gold

Precious Metals: Platinum, Royal Gold

Platinum is meant to lift your browbone with its creamy white with a light pink undertone. Royal Gold is a bright yet light gold that is beautiful on my lid. Sleek suggests using Royal Gold down the bridge of your nose as a highlighter.

Sleek Precious Metals: Renaissance Gold and Antique Bronze

Sleek Precious Metals: Renaissance Gold and Antique Bronze

Renaissance Gold is less sparkly so I’ve used it a lot on my eyes. Sleek’s suggestion of applying Renaissance Gold on your cupid’s bow to make your lips more prominent is a winner! It’s a wonderful shade for that especially since it’s more natural while still being metallic. Antique Bronze works wonderfully as a bronzer and a highlighter. It’s also a great eyeshadow shade.

Sleek: Platinum, Royal Gold, Renaissance Gold, Antique Bronze

Sleek Precious Metals Highlighting Palette is not only a bargain to me with its 4 shades that enhance and glow but it’s one that’s going to make my summer more beautiful.

Sleek Eyebrow Stylist

Sleek Eyebrow Stylist

I was happy when I found Sleek Eyebrow Stylist in the package. My eyebrows went from nicely shaped and filled in naturally to scraggly monsters that are thin. I desperately need eyebrow products these days and this Eyebrow Stylist is great for me. This automatic pencil comes in three shades: light, medium, and dark. I was sent Dark which is a great shade for my brunette brows.

Sleek Eyebrow Stylist in Dark

Sleek Eyebrow Stylist in Dark

One end contains a flat tip so that you can create a light outline and then with the pointed angled edge fill in your brows. It’s easy to use feather strokes to create an illusion of hair. What I like is that I can heavily fill in the sparseness at the front of my brows and then flip it to use lighter strokes for the rest. This really fills in well and it’s not a waxy feeling.

Sleek Eyebrow Stylist

The spoolie isn’t unusual but it does a great job of grooming your brows so it gets an A from me!

Sleek Eyebrow Stylist in Dark

Sleek Eyebrow Stylist in Dark

This is not the best shot of my brows because they needed some plucking but you can see how well this fills in and looks natural. You can easily layer this or apply a darker line if you need more coverage. At $8.99 this is one of the better buys I’ve found in eyebrow pencils.

 

Two great finds from SLEEK MAKEUP. We no longer have to worry about the difficulty and expense of buying Sleek since they’ve made it so easy. —  Marcia
