Hurry up because time is running out for the LE CoverGirl Katy Perry Katy Kat Pearl Collection!

CoverGirl Katy Kat Pearl Collection

CoverGirl Katy Kat Pearl Collection

Katy Perry has some beautiful products in her CoverGirl line and her limited edition Katy Kat Pearl collection for spring won’t be around much longer! Every item costs under $10 so if you find something you love snap it up now. Coty sent me some samples of a few products and my oldest daughter was happy to model them for me (she has MUCH nicer lips than I do!). This spring is all about shimmers and pastels, trends that work right into summer. Here’s what I was sent to test:

Covergirl Katy Kat Pearl Shadow + Highlighter

Covergirl Katy Kat Pearl Shadow + Highlighter

Covergirl Katy Kat Pearl Shadow + Highlighter

Covergirl Katy Kat Pearl Shadow + Highlighter ($8.99):  This is available in Tiger’s Eye and Tiger Rose. My shade is Tiger’s Eye. This has an interesting texture that is bouncy and gel-like. You use your fingers to apply, so to avoid bacterial contamination scoop some out onto a steel palette then pat it on with fingertips. The soft, spongy gel dries down quickly into a sheer shimmer that is very pretty as an eyeshadow or a cheek highlighter. I think this is a product for younger faces…those of us with a few wrinkles won’t do well with the creamy texture and the amount of shimmer, but those in their teens and twenties will love it.

Covergirl Katy Kat Pearl Shadow + Highlighter and Covergirl Katy Kat Eyeliner in Purrmaid

Covergirl Katy Kat Pearl Shadow + Highlighter and Covergirl Katy Kat Eyeliner in Purrmaid

Covergirl Katy Kat Eyeliner ($6.99):  This is available in Kitty WhisPURR (silver) and Purrmaid (green). I have Purrmaid, a beautiful shimmery teal green. This pencil eyeliner is different from others because it’s easy like a pencil liner, but it has the intensity of a liquid liner. It also lasts all day – a good eight hours for sure. It has this really neat-o smudge tip – I have to admit, I use it with all of my pencil liners, not just this one!

Covergirl Katy Kat Pearl Lipstick ($8.99):   This is available in four shades – Blue-tiful Kitty; Apricat; Purrty in Pink; REDdy to Pounce. I have Blue-tiful Kitty and Apricat.

So let’s start with Blue-tiful Kitty.

This was the major reason I asked my daughter to model for me. She has better lips, and there is NO way I can get away with blue lips. Trust me, when I am three breaths away from kicking the bucket I’ll be putting on some pink lip gloss. So, we went full-on blue for a photo, but I don’t think it’s the best way to wear this lipstick at any age.

I actually think it’s sublime when paired with Apricat, which I’ll show you in a minute.

Here is full on Apricat, which is a really exquisite shimmery apricot. This is soft, pretty, shiny, and hydrating. The price point is fantastic and if you only buy one thing from this collection, I would recommend this fabulous lippie. Now, check it out with some Blue-tiful on the inner portion of the lips, blended outward:

So pretty, right?? I love it!! The more I play with these products and shades the more I love them. The Katy Kat Pearl limited edition spring collection won’t be around much longer, so be sure pick some up at the drugstore or Ulta when you are out. Once again, Katy Perry doesn’t disappoint!  – Lisa

Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick, Liquid Lip Lure, and Eye Crayon are wonders and so is this giveaway

wonderwomanThe recent SkinStore survey got me thinking…most women’s go to lipstick for enhancing confidence is a nude shade, not a colorful one. I must be abnormal, because I grab the colorful option every time. Add some black eye liner and I am as confident as Wonder Woman.

Illamasqua has some beautiful options that I reach for time after time, including the Glamore Lipstick in Kitsch, Liquid Lip Lure in Embers, and Colouring Pencil in S.O.P.H.I.E.                                                                     samples

Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick, Lip Lure, Colouring Pencil

Glamore Lipstick in Kitsch ($19.50) is a gorgeous cool toned blue-based pink. The formula is incredibly creamy and the lasting power is just insane.  Illamasqua KitschIllamasqua Kitsch

Rocking no makeup except Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick in Kitsch

Rocking no makeup except Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick in Kitsch

This lipstick leaves my lips soft and hydrated and the color gradually wears off without leaving a nasty ring around the edges or cracking and peeling. The medium pink is just bright enough to give me a quick boost of ‘don’t even think about messing with me’!

Illamasqua Liquid Lip Lure in EmbersIllamasqua Liquid Lip Lure in EmbersIf I am feeling more warm than cool, I reach for Illamasqua Liquid Lip Lure in Embers ($19.50). This hot orange is truly hot, hot, hot, and I am absolutely on fire when I wear it. It has a very intense pigment and, like the lipstick, the wear time is incredible. If you want a slightly less intense look, blot right after application. You’ll still be throwing elbows and taking names for hours.

Illamasqua Colouring Pencil in S.O.P.H.I.EIllamasqua Colouring Pencil in S.O.P.H.I.ESome bright lipstick and eyeliner are all I need to make me feel like I can do anything. I love eye pencils because they are so quick – and I am ALWAYS running late – and the Illamasqua Colouring Pencil in S.O.P.H.I.E. is a wonderfully sooty black that gives my eyes definition without being overly dramatic – just enough so that everyone knows I mean business. This eye pencil glides on and doesn’t smudge. I love it.

I am sure you can find your own Illamasqua power colors – just head on over to SkinStore and take a look!  – Lisa

Vert Beauty brings us natural and organic beauty products

vert-beauty-retina-1

We were recently introduced to VERT Beauty and sent a few products so that you can learn about them too. VERT Beauty is a website dedicated to carrying the best natural and organic brands of cosmetics, skin care, fragrance, bath & body, and hair care. The 38 brands they carry are wonderful with some you know about already but many that you’ll be glad to learn about too.

VERT is building their own brand and we were sent their concealer pencil along with a few eyeliner pencils.

MARCIA WEARS VERT BEAUTY CONCEALER IN CLAIR

Vert calls their concealer pencil a medium coverage pencil but in Claire (the lightest) I find it to be slightly more than medium. The really nice thing about this though is that the amount of coverage is variable so you have easy control over how much coverage you’ll actually get.

The Concealer Pencils ($20) are available in three shades:

Clair:  Ideal for porcelain to fair complexions

Lumière: Perfect for moderately fair complexions

Moyen: Just right for medium skin tones

I like having a variety of concealers. With a pencil I have more control and less waste. I can spot treat or draw lines where I need coverage. I usually use a cosmetic sponge to blend. Vert’s pencil is very creamy and easy to apply. I think that’s due to the anti-aging Vitamin E and Shea Butter used in the formula. It keeps it firm yet makes it easy to glide on without tugging.

Not only does this work well as a concealer but it’s also great to use on my lips to keep color from feathering. The only downside with this is that Vert really needs to increase the number of colors since even their darkest shade isn’t going to be dark enough for more than a dark medium skin tone. For the rest of us though this is a great natural choice that’s portable and helps my dark circles.

LISA WEARS VERT BEAUTY EYELINER PENCILS

Marcia isn’t much of a pencil eyeliner gal, but I am. I love the ease of pencils and the fact that I don’t need a separate brush for application. The one thing that has always frustrated me about pencil eyeliners is the lack of shimmer. Even if the pencil looks shimmery, it’s tough to find a pencil that actually applies that way.

Vert Beauty Eyeliner Pencils in Cuivre, Bleu, Violet, and Vert

Vert Beauty Eyeliner Pencils in Cuivre, Bleu, Violet, and Vert

VERT Beauty Eyeliner Pencils ($17) have the rich color typically found with gel eyeliners, plus shimmer that actually shows up! The ingredients include mango and meadowfoam seed oils, which make these a little softer and easier to apply than typical pencil eyeliners. The colors I was sent include:

Cuivre: A sparkling, intense copper

Bleu: An elegant, eye-brightening navy

Violet:  A royally rich purple

Vert: A seductive cross between turquoise and jade

Top to bottom: Vert Beauty Eyeliner Pencils in Vert, Violet, Bleu, and Cuivre

Top to bottom: Vert Beauty Eyeliner Pencils in Vert, Violet, Bleu, and Cuivre

These pencils are all gorgeous and I especially love Cuivre for a softer look and Vert, which is unlike anything I have and goes great with my brownish-green eyes. You can sharpen these pencils to a very sharp point for a precise thin line, and they can also be smudged out for a smoky eye.

There’s one more shade that I don’t have that sounds really beautiful – Noir Or: The ultimate, sexy black gold.

We are loving Vert Beauty pencils, both concealer and eyeliner!  Check out this line for these winning products and so much more.

SheaMoisture Ultra Smooth Long Wear Eye Pencil review and swatches

SheaMoisture Ultra Smooth Long Wear Eye Pencils

SheaMoisture Ultra Smooth Long Wear Eye Pencils

Yesterday I posted about my new lean mean makeup routine since I am always running late, and it reminded me that I haven’t reviewed these awesome gel eyeliner pencils.  SheaMoisture makes 150 different products for ‘every kind of normal’, and their products include some great affordable cosmetics.  The Ultra Smooth Long Wear Eye Pencils ($7.99) are great pops of color that last all day.                                                                                 samples

My favorite liner is gel eyeliner but I am lazy about using the pots and a brush.  I love pencils because you just take off the top and draw, and the lining deed is done.  The SheaMoisture Ultra Smooth Long Wear Eye Pencils go on like a gel and last like a liquid liner.  The color payoff is awesome, and while there is lots of time for play, the liner stays in place – even when my mascara doesn’t.

The eyeliners come in Black, Blue, Brown, Purple, Teal and Turquoise.  I have three of them:

SheaMoisture Ultra Smooth Long Wear Eye Pencils

Purple, which is a bright shimmery pinky lavender; Brown, which is a deep brown with a slight golden shimmer; and Blue, which is a light cream blue .  I love using two different shades, typically Brown on my upper lash line then Blue or Purple on my lower lash line.

The colors are great, the application is easy, and the wear is long.  What’s not to love??  You can fine SheaMoisture products online at SheaMoisture.com.  Also, take a look at this video for their #BreakTheWalls national awareness platform as they challenge beauty industry standards with the question What’s Normal? – Lisa

Max Factor is back and I’m loving it

Max Factor mascara, lipsticks, and eyeliner

Max Factor mascara, lipsticks, and eyeliner

When MAX FACTOR left the United States it was a sad time for lovers of their mascara. It was the only brand of mascara that I could count on from the drugstore. I had a few spare and used them up with sorrow. When they emailed and said they were bringing a limited amount of products back to the US I was thrilled and quickly sent my address for these samples. Now I’m going to be sad again if this was just a tease and they don’t stick around.

The four MAX FACTOR X products that are available are MASTERPIECEMAX mascara, MASTERPIECE High Precision Liquid Eyeliner, and LIPSTICKS in Simply Nude and Maroon Dust. Obviously a limited number that hopefully will grow.

MAX FACTOR X MASTPERPIECEMAX HIGH VOLUME AND DEFINITION MASCARA is available in Velvet Black locally (try Walgreens or Target) for $9.99.

MAX FACTOR X MASTERPIECEMAX mascara

MAX FACTOR X MASTERPIECEMAX mascara

The brush is a high tech IFX brush and is said to have 4x more volume than you’d have without. What I’ve found though is that the definition I get from this mascara is what stands out and reminds me of what I’d been missing.

MAX FACTOR X MASTERPIECEMAX mascara

MAX FACTOR X MASTERPIECEMAX mascara

Max Factor was the one that started the craze of using a rubber brush and soon everyone followed. This mascara has never smudged on me even after a nap. I don’t end up with pieces of mascara under my eyes. It’s on my lashes even through 12+ hour days. I instantly get definition and with two coats I get volumizing. If I decided to add a third coat there’d be even more volume.

Wearing MAX FACTOR X MASTERPIECEMAX mascara and MASTERPIECE Liquid Eyeliner

MAX FACTOR X MASTERPIECE HIGH PRECISION LIQUID EYELINER ($9.99) is an intense black liquid liner with a non-typical brush. The brush is more like a paddle brush though on the small side. I’m used to a pencil tip so I had some problems with this liner. My picture is my first attempt with it and I wasn’t happy with the result. The liner is great if you like a thicker line but even with practice I’m not getting the thin line I prefer.

My eyes have never done well with a cat eye look since they are droopy at the ends. I’ve had pros do the look on me and it’s okay but I am a klutz when it comes to a cat eye or thick liner. But those of you who can wear a cat eye will love this deep dark slightly shiny liner.

max factor lipsticks 2

MAX FACTOR X LIPSTICKS ($9.99) are available in just two shades. These are both perfect for me but may be too light for many others. These are both renditions of nude lips and I’m head over heels in love with them. The one that really stole my heart is Simply Nude. This is a pink nude that I wear with a nude lipliner (Chanel Nude or Milani Nude) and it’s exactly the shade I’m most comfortable wearing. max factor both lipsticksSimply Nude is a light pink cool shade while Maroon Dust is warm peach nude on my lips. They are creamy and wonderfully comfortable to wear. I had been anxious to buy Charlotte Tilbury Kim K W lipstick but once I wore Simply Nude that desire disappeared since I think it gives an almost identical look color.

There’s no time to waste. This limited collection won’t be around for long. I know I’m ordering the mascara from Target in multiples since it meets all my criteria. I am really hoping that Max Factor sees the error of its ways and realizes that we need them back in the good old USA!

Beautiful bargains from Rimmel and N.Y.C.

RIMMEL Magnif'Eyes and NYC Get It All

RIMMEL Magnif’Eyes and NYC Get It All

The lazy, hazy days of summer sometimes need a pick-me-up and if you are reading this blog that usually means something cosmetic. When that feeling pops up there’s nothing like a drugstore trip to add a new product to your life. Having received 2 of the Rimmel London Magnif’eyes Double Ended Shadow + Liner and 3 NYC NEW YORK COLOR GET IT ALL ALL IN ONE LIP COLORS was a definite boost in these lazy days.

There’s so much to love with the Rimmel London Magnif’eyes Double Ended Shadow + Liner that 2 aren’t quite enough. These amazing shadow crayons and liners are the smoothest I’ve tried in ages and the price is so right at MSRP $6.47. How do you pick from these shades? #001 Back To Black, Liner: Matte Black, Shadow: Gun Metal Grey (high pearl with glitter), #002 Kissed By A Rose Gold, Liner: Brown (low pearl), Shadow: Rose Gold (medium pearl), #003 Queens Of The Bronzed Age, Liner: Gold (high pearl with glitter), Shadow: Bronze (medium pearl), #004 Dark Side Of Blue, Liner: Matte Cobalt Blue, Shadow: Dark Grey (low pearl), #005 Pink & Purple Rain, Liner: Matte Dark Plum,  Shadow: Light Pink (high pearl with glitter)rimmel collage

 

I’ve got Pink & Purple Rain along with Kissed by a Rose Gold. These 2-in-1 pencils are easy to apply and last me the entire day. I don’t even have to use an eyeshadow primer with the crayon end since they last through even these incredibly hot and humid days.

Rimmel Magnif'Eyes liner end

Rimmel Magnif’Eyes liner end

The liners are kohl kajal so they are intense and long wearing. Not only can they be worn as eyeliner on the top or bottom but they can be used on the waterline. The shadow side is incredible with a long lasting, creaseproof, and waterproof formula. These are total love with Kissed by a Rose Gold especially getting a lot of wear.

They have a candy like fragrance that reminds me of Cherry Lik-M-Aid (am I aging myself?) which was always my favorite. likmaidI have the NYC Get It All lipsticks in ExeptioNUDE, PINKdigious, and ImpREDssive. ExeptioNUDE is a mauve nude, PINKdigious is a bright pretty pink, and ImpREDssive is a hot red shade that will get you noticed. Using a light coat of these will give you more of a sheer look but they are easy to intensify with more than one coat plus they’ll last longer that way.
