The Air Perfection Foundation is a favorite of mine. This cushion compact foundation convinced me that the cushion is far more than a gimmick and I’ve repurchased it twice. It comes with a refill, and the foundation is fragrance-free. The Double Ego Eyeliner in Tasmania is outstanding. I love using black eyeliner on my upper lid and brown on my lower, so this is perfect! The pencil side is great for the waterline too. The Berry Pretty Lip Gloss Stick is indeed pretty and you can layer it for deeper color. The Volume Vixen Mascara is the only mini-sized product and it’s a wonderful mascara that creates long, thick lashes. The brush has a full side and a flat side, making it great for both upper and lower lashes.

Thrive Causemetics – doing good for you and others

thrive eyeliner and eyebrow

THRIVE CAUSEMETICS has a special name and a special cause. They are a company that every man and woman around should appreciate and support. For every product purchased, a product is donated to a woman going through cancer treatment. This totally warms my heart making me even more thrilled that the company chose to send these to try out. It’s also a company that I want to see thrive.

At the current time Thrive Causemetics carries a variety of products: Infinity Waterproof Brow Liner, Infinity Waterproof Eyeliners, Faux Lashes, Lash Adhesive, and Hair Ties. Plus a great mug for all beauty lovers.

I have both an eyeliner and a brow liner to introduce you to.

THRIVE CAUSEMETICSINFINITY WATERPROOF EYELINER

thrive causemetics infinity eyebrow

Infinity Waterproof Eyeliner comes in various configurations. You can purchase a single liner for $22 or do a combo set of two products for $40. There are 4 matte shades and 1 shimmer liner to chose from: LAUREN (black), ELLA (brown), HODA (slate grey), GUILIANA (purple shimmer), and TALIA (navy). I have this in HODA which is a terrific slate grey shade. Even though I like a black liquid eyeliner I often find that it’s aging. This shade of grey is recognizable as grey and a softer look. I love how this glides on so easily.

Thrive makes this so easy to use by having a built in sharpener and smudger on the opposite end. Even more important is how long lasting this is without smudging or just plain disappearing during the day.

THRIVE INFINITY WATERPROOF BROW LINER

As regular readers know, I’ve become eyebrow obsessed so having this brow pencil is terrific. There are two shades available: Christina and Audrey. Christina is for those of you with light brows while Audrey is for darker brows. I was sent Audrey which is a good universal shade for brunettes. This is a windup pencil that never needs sharpening. It’s great for drawing in individual brow lashes since it’s got such a fine point to it. The opposite end has a spoolie which I rely on for smoothing out color.

The pencil is a triple threat; not only is it waterproof but it’s a wax and powder in one. The pigment is buildable so that helps me with the sparseness on the front of my brows. This contains shea butter, sodium hyalurante and ceramides which help encourage the growth of fuller brows. I may marry this if that happens over time!

There are so many reasons to recommend Thrive – beauty with a purpose that is paraben free, sulfate free, latex free, cruelty free and vegan. Can’t beat that. Even makeup artists like Jamie Greenberg used Thrive products like Audrey Brow Liner and Thrive Adhesive on clients like Kaley Cuoco at the Golden Globes. If it’s good enough for them, it’s great for me. — Marcia

Pixi Beauty has wallet friendly, beautiful LE holiday gift sets

This is the season that our wallets really start hurting. Everyone is bringing out gift sets that are too fabulous to ignore. Some of the ones we’ve shown already (or will be showing) are for those times when we can splurge. Most of our needs, wants, and gifts need to be more affordable so we don’t go into debt.

Pixi Beauty (Pixi by Petra) is in the latter category. Fabulous sets for yourself or for gifts. Holiday sets that you can put on a wishlist without feeling guilty. Perfect stocking stuffers and grab bag items can be bought for $12 to $24 from Pixi.

The hottest thing this year is contouring, highlighting and strobing as you no doubt know from reading magazines and blogs. Pixi’s Natural Contour Kit is all that and more! 4 facial shades and 8 eyeshadows can be mixed or matched for affordable beauty ($24).

The other trend this year is matte lipsticks. As beautiful as they are, they aren’t that easy to wear. I’ve reviewed two of Pixi’s Mattelustre Lipsticks and found them very comfortable and not drying. I can’t wear a true matte for more than an hour before I feel uncomfortable. That isn’t my reaction with Mattelustre since they feel creamy on my lips and don’t accentuate fine lines. The good news is that you can try them, or gift them, in a limited edition set called Mini Mattelustre Lipstick Quartette and it’s only $12. The shades are from their regular collection: Honey Bare, Petal Pink, Rose Naturelle and Bitten Rose.

Then there are the very popular and incredible Silky Eye Pencils. These were the first items I ever bought from Pixi since the raves were amazing and rightly so. Now for only $18 there’s the Mini Endless Silky Eye Pen Quartette for this holiday.

I was sent this set to test out and I’ve been enjoying it immensely. I never, ever go without eyeliner when I’m going somewhere. I just don’t look like myself if I leave it off. It’s a need, not a want. But you will want this set because it gives you the opportunity to try out their phenomenal pencils in 4 great colors.

This giftable box holds 4 liners that will work with whatever you wear. Three of the shades are from their collection and one shade is a new one created just for this LE gift set: BlackNoir, BlackCocoa, DeepPlum and SlateGrey (the limited edition shade).

These are the silkiest pencils, you can smudge them if you want without a problem but once they set, they SET. You won’t find the colors migrating under your eyes during the day but you will find your eyeliner on after the work day is over.

Even though I’ve only tried this eyeliner kit out of the three kits, I have no problem recommending any and all of these three holiday sets. I’ve worked with Pixi Beauty often enough and wear so many of their products that I’m confident in these. They are ready to go for gift giving and for your merry self too. Don’t be late to the party!

Which set would you most like to see in your holiday haul? — Marcia

Makeup Wars perks up your eyes

MAKEUP WARS is all about eyes today, expanding from the typical to the somewhat atypical. Ways to perk up your eye makeup can be as simple or bold as wearing a colorful mascara as well as changing up your eyeliner from your typical black or dark brown. I’ve chosen my favorite colorful eyeliners to share with you since a day without eyeliner for me is a day my eyes disappear.

STILA GOT INKED CUSHION EYE LINER is my new favorite eyeliner. Yes I do play favorites and right now the play is with these very cool cushion eye liners. This is a liquid eyeliner unlike any you’ve used. It comes in a pot with the liquid under a cushion top. Use your favorite brush (I prefer a very thin one) and press it onto the webbed sponge top and you’ve got your color. Stila compares it to using a calligraphy pen that you dip into the sponge. These don’t seem like they’ll spill. I first bought it in Smoky Quartz Ink and after using it twice I knew I needed another so along came Copper Ink. Both are within my comfort zone but on the edge of it. You can go thick or thin, you can draw cat eyes, you can do anything your heart desires and the color will last. It comes in 6 shades (Black Obsidian, Amethyst, Blue Sapphire, Garnet plus Smoky Quartz and Copper).

Stila Got Inked Cushion Eye Liners

Smoky Quartz Ink is a pewter taupe that is metallic and will take on the colors of your eye makeup depending on the light. While there’s no glitter in it, it looks that way because of the high shine. When I wear this with a gold and khaki combination it seems to pick up that khaki undertone. Copper Ink isn’t quite as metallic but it’s far from flat. It’s stunning with a variety of browns but when it really looks unique is wearing it with eyeshadow in the navy family. Copper Ink is making me shop my stash for new looks.

I’m a huge fan of liquid eyeliners but they are not all created equal. The length and sturdiness of the brush are the keys for me finding the ones I love. While I don’t wear pencil eyeliners that often I’ve found that Pur Minerals (now Pur Cosmetics) has a combination that has the best of both worlds. DOUBLE EGO EYELINERS are liquid on one end and pencil on the other end. Use separately or combine for great looks.

Look at those colors! Milan (inky black), Tasmania (dark chocolate), Madagascar (black gold), Bora Bora (royal blue), Swiss Alps (cool pewter), Rio de Janeiro (deep plum), Bali (emerald green), and Queensland (aquatic teal). While I mostly wear Tasmania I’ve been known to wear Swiss Alps (pewter) and Rio de Janiero (plum) to shake it up a bit. These are amazing eyeliners.

Last but far from least on my list are the YOUNGBLOOD EYE-MAZING LIQUID EYELINER PENS. These are available in 5 shades that are beautiful and go beyond black. The brush is what makes these so wonderful. For me they glide on and last, rarely going astray. I’ve bought backups of Marron since it’s an amazing brown eyeliner. Gris (soft grey) and Verde (dark forest green) are unique to my eyeliner collection.

Votre Vu is back and adding color to our lives! A double dose of Votre Vu Cosmetics, Side by Side

Votre Vu is a long time favorite at the BIZ – our first review was way back in 2010! We are always up for a little more French fashion finesse in our lives, so a recent box of Votre Vu goodies had us jumping for joy (but in a very sophisticated way, of course!). Surprisingly, this time around Lisa went for the eye products and Marcia went for lippies.

Votre Vu Eyeshadow and Eyeliner

Lisa’s Side:

I think the fact that the eyeshadow and eyeliner were both in chocolate shades influenced my choice…I have a difficult time resisting anything chocolate!!

The Beaujolais Eyeshadow Single ($19) is a buttery soft eyeshadow in a beautiful plummy brown shade. It has a tiny bit of golden shimmer, just enough to make this shade different from any other in my collection. I love this as a crease shade because it sheers out beautifully yet also packs on nicely for more drama. Ingredients include vitamin E, jojoba oil and kaolin clay, which make the texture soft and crease-resistant. 

Smudge and Set Soft Eyeliner in Chocolat

Le Jolie Smudge and Set Soft Eyeliner in Chocolat

The Le Jolie Smudge and Set Soft Eyeliner in Chocolat ($23) is a perfect companion to the Beaujolais Eyeshadow Single.  

This is a gel pencil that is so soft it almost feels like a liquid liner at first. One end has a sponge blending tip and the soft liner gives lots of play time before setting into a nicely smudge-proof line. The liner comes with a really nice sharpener, although this is a liner for soft lines, not precise ones.

The Chocolat shade is a terrific medium brown – described as a ‘semi sweet chocolate’ – with tons of pigment. It lasts all day on the lid and a decent amount of time on the waterline.

My Votre Vu FOD

My Votre Vu FOD

I’m very happy with these Votre Vu eye products and definitely recommend both of them.  Somehow I think they would probably pair perfectly with Marcia’s lip and cheek products….

Marcia’s Side:

Votre Vu Vu-On Rouge for lips and cheeks in Ma Cherry, French Kiss Lipstick in Tatiana, Lip Liner in Spark

Votre Vu Vu-On Rouge for lips and cheeks in Ma Cherry, French Kiss Lipstick in Tatiana, Lip Liner in Spark

We switched places for today’s Side by Side review. I’m always the one who “politely” grabs the eye products out of Lisa’s hands while I say Merci but this time I was intrigued by the lip products as well as the cream blush which is always a favorite of mine. I’ve been using Vu-On Rouge for lips and cheeks in Ma Cherry, French Kiss Lipstick in Tatiana, and Lip Liner in Spark since I think these are great fall shades.

Votre Vu French Kiss Lipstick in Tatiana

Votre Vu French Kiss Lipstick in Tatiana

Votre Vu French Kiss Lipstick in the shade Tatiana ($23) is a beautiful fall color. I’m not used to wearing dark shades especially just coming off summer so I decided to use a lip brush to apply this instead of right from the tube. I’m really glad I did it that way because the lipstick became more of a stain and lasted for a longer time. I love that this isn’t fragranced except for a touch of vanilla mint which surprises me since it’s a French company and they always seem to use a floral fragrance. Tatiana is delightfully described as “A warm and joyful tomato red that’s ideal for your first tryst rouge.” French Kiss Lipsticks are hydrating lipsticks so they are more flattering (on me) than a matte lipstick. Brushing it on though gives a more matte look than applying from the tube.

The perfect companion to a French Kiss lipstick is Votre Vu’s Drawmatic Lip Liners ($21). I have it in Spark which is described as a mid-tone rose. It’s a great shade not only for Tatiana but for so many of the fall and winter lipsticks I’ll use. This is a wind up lipliner so no sharpeners are needed. I love this kind of liner since there’s no waste. This very flattering shade glides on and doesn’t tug at all. I’m sure I’ll use it up to the very last drop.

Last is my very favorite product of this trio – Vu On Rouge in Ma Cherry. This makes me want to sing along with Stevie Wonder. I am a huge fan of cream blush and can’t resist them. Votre Vu has 4 shades of the Vo On Rouge ($29) and I’d happily own all 4. Ma Cherry is a “sweet and classic cherry blue-red hue that becomes every skin tone”. You can see it blended in above but when I swipe it across my cheeks it’s so intense that my fair skin just can’t take it so this is how I apply it…

Votre Vu Vu On Rouge in Ma Cherry

Votre Vu Vu On Rouge in Ma Cherry

I dot it on my face and then blend with my fingers or a sponge. I can add more if I want which I usually do. This way I can build the intensity rather than have to remove some of it. This dries down beautifully and never feels sticky. It’s also a perfect purse blush since no tools are needed. This lasts about 8 hours on me unless I start with a powder blush and then the duo would last for 12 hours. Vu On Rouge can be used on cheeks and lips and they say even eyes. It’s blended with hydrating shea and exotic antioxidant-rich mango seed butters so it not only looks good but it’s good for your skin. I’ve been wearing this several days a week and I know I need Amourette next. Even Stevie Wonder would approve if I had them both and would happily sing “Ma Cherie Amour” to me.

September brings new Pixi Beauty #pixibeauty #fall2015

Pixi Beauty Endless Brow Gel, Cat Eye Ink, Mattelustre Lipstick

Pixi Beauty Endless Brow Gel, Cat Eye Ink, Mattelustre Lipstick

Welcome some new products to the world of Pixi by Petra this month with the launch of Mattelustre Lipstick, Endless Brow Gel Pen and Cat Eye Ink. These are certainly welcome into my world since they were sent to test.

This year matte lips have taken off like American Pharoah – it’s definitely won the Triple Crown with all cosmetic companies. But Pixi Beauty has a slightly different take on matte lips and one that’s much easier to wear with their MATTELUSTRE lipsticks. There are 11 enticing shades that are only $12 each. What makes these different is that they are not a flat matte. Instead there’s a light lustre finish and a slight plumping to your lips with these long lasting lipsticks. My lips didn’t feel dry when wearing them. I have Pure Fuchsia which is a vivid cool shade of this dark pink. I also have Plum Berry described as “cerise berry tint” which on me is quite red, I don’t see the plum but I do see the berry.

Pixi Beauty Mattelustre lipsticks in Plum Berry and Pure Fuchsia

The tubes themselves are Pixi green but the outer packaging is a covering of a bright fuchsia color to keep the lipsticks sealed. They are a chunky tube but the lipstick itself is the normal size. Pixi added peptides, hyaluronic acid, and vitamins C & E help to create fuller, smoother looking lips with these 11 beauties. Be sure to look at these on Pixi’s website to see great representations of the shades.

Pixi Beauty Mattelustre lipsticks in Plum Berry and Pure Fuchsia

Pixi Beauty Mattelustre lipsticks in Plum Berry and Pure Fuchsia

Both of these shades are in the cool family but there are others like Peach Blossom, Honey Bare, and Bitten Rose that are for those of you who look better in warmer shades. What I’m going to search Target for is Plump Pink, a cool mauve pink. Happily for me these are fragrance free and a demi-matte formula rather than a flat matte.

CAT EYE INK is a new liquid liner ($14) with an unusual tip. It’s a slanted felt tip that you can use to create a thin line if you are careful or a thicker one. It is only available in Intense Black which is typical for a cat eye. It’s a very wet liner so you can’t just slap it on. Take your time with this so that it doesn’t bleed since it’s so juicy. I think you need to use an eyeshadow primer first and let that dry down, then pat on your lid shade or a translucent shade. Next apply the liner carefully. Once it’s set, it’s set and it’s very long lasting. I’ve had times it was easy to get the liner look I wanted but other times that this didn’t cooperate with me.

Pixi Beauty Cat Eye Ink Pen

Pixi Beauty Cat Eye Ink Pen

My favorite new product is ENDLESS BROW GEL PEN ($11) which I know I’ll be buying again and again. I’m in love with Pixi Beauty brow products and until this arrived I’d been using the Brow Powder Palette non-stop. But Endless Brow Gel Pen has kidnapped me and is making me use this instead. It comes in three shades (Light a neutral light taupe, Medium which is neutral ash brown, and Dark a neutral cocoa gray). I have it in Medium and when I swatched it I really was worried it would be too light. That worry was changed to relief the first day I wore it. With my (sparse) dark brown eyebrows it’s a great shade.

Pixi Endless Brow Gel Pen in Medium

Pixi Endless Brow Gel Pen in Medium

The texture of this brow pencil is unusual, I’ve only tried one other like it (but much more expensive). The formula is soft and smooth and truly glides on. It’s just so easy for me to use to fill in my brows. If you like to draw individual hairs then this might not be for you though. But I’ll be buying it as soon as I notice it’s getting too small to use.
