It’s lovely being a Beauty Addicts foundation fan with Face2Face

Beauty Addicts Face2Face Foundation

Beauty Addicts Face2Face Foundation

There’s something quite fascinating about a company whose motto is “Beauty made simple” that actually adheres to that motto. Beauty Addicts is a cosmetic company that has been around for quite a while yet they don’t have a million items. They keep it simple by creating ONE foundation, one tinted moisturizer, one concealer. Their goal isn’t to flood the market but to improve the market.

Technically Beauty Addicts Face2Face Foundation is a crème to powder foundation. I say technically because it never becomes powdery. Instead it gives me a soft slightly dewy appearance. There’s nothing dry or chalky about it. It’s a lightweight formula even though Beauty Addicts says that it’s full coverage. I find that the coverage is more medium than full though I can build it up.

Beauty Addicts Face2Face Foundation comes in 7 shades. I was sent Shades 01 and 02 to test. I probably can wear them both well on my fair (MAC NW15) skin but as soon as I applied Shade 01 I was sold. It’s a great match for my neutral to cool toned skin. Shade 02 would be great for people who have warmer undertones than I do (MAC NC15-20).

While it comes with a sponge, the magic for me is when applying it with a foundation brush. I have tried it with a variety of brushes but almost always go for the Urban Decay Optical Blurring Brush. It picks up the perfect amount of foundation and blends it seamlessly on my skin. The sponge is great if you carry the foundation around since it fits in the compact perfectly.

Even though I haven’t worn Beauty Addicts crème foundation in hot weather, it has survived cold, cool, windy and warm weather. It’s even stood up to a few hot flashes. Face2Face Foundation contains Vitamin A and E plus Green Tea in order to soothe and protect. It also has Dermaxyl for hydration and something called Advanced Microsphere Technology to help diminish the look of fine lines. All in all I’d say that Beauty Addicts Face2Face Crème to Powder Foundation has surpassed all my expectations of it. I’m truly enjoying wearing this foundation every day.

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: 

  •  Invisible finish with flawless coverage-your skin….better
  •  Quick and easy application and sun protection
  •  Compact and portable-great for travel, even goes with you on the plane

  •  Softens fine lines and doesn’t crease
  •  Water and sweat resistant
  •  Hypo-allergenic, non-comedogenic, and anti -bacterial
  •  Environmentally thoughtful, with a refillable container

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.

Susan Posnick Simply Brush and Go COLORFLO in shade M3

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”.

Susan Posnick ColorFlo in MI

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.

FACE Stockholm Spring 2014

I often wonder, why doesn’t FACE Stockholm get more blog press? This is an utterly fantastic line with top-notch products and shades. Spring 2014 at FACE Stockholm is right on trend with natural, peachy-pink shades and a hint of some sassy purple.

FACE Stockholm Spring 2014

FACE Stockholm sent us four items from the latest collection: Mineral Foundation, Pearl Eyeshadow #36, Toffee Lipstick, and Worship Blush.

FACE Stockholm Liquid Mineral Foundation in Synsk

The Liquid Mineral Foundation ($36) is a thin, lightweight foundation that provides medium coverage. I have issues with an oily t-zone, but not when I wear this oil-free matte foundation. It comes in a sleek-looking glass bottle with a built-in spatula. I don’t apply the foundation using the spatula – to be completely hygienic I scoop some out onto my metal palette, then apply the foundation using my Beauty Blender. It gives a gorgeous finish that lasts all day. I have Synsk, which is a great shade for those who have that not quite light, not quite medium skin tone.

The Spring 2014 Collection features Pearl Shadow in #36 ($19), which is described as a ‘greige’ shade. It just might be the prettiest eyeshadow I own – it’s no mystery to me why this is one of FACE Stockholm’s most popular eye shadow shades. It goes on as a mixture of pink, taupe, grey, and purple, and it seems to become more purple as the day goes on. I have worn this every single day since it arrived! This eyeshadow is a perfect pop of color in the otherwise neutral palette of the spring collection.

The Cream Lipstick in Toffee ($22) is a feminine, soft coral that is perfect for spring. The creamy lipstick is opaque, with great lasting power and just enough shine. It really complements the blush in the collection, Worship.

FACE Stockholm Blush in Worship

The Blush in Worship ($20) is a velvety, shimmery peachy-pink. The pigment is amazing – FACE Stockholm is one of the few brands that has powder blushes that will last all day on even the most oily skin. The texture is to die for, buttery and fabulous. Worship is a fantastic spring shade and is one of the most popular shades they offer.

My FACE Stockholm Spring 2014 FOD

My FACE Stockholm Spring 2014 FOD

I am absolutely loving the Spring 2014 Collection. Other items featured in the collection include the Precision Eyeliner, Cream Eyeshadow in Apricot, Tinted Brow Fix, and the terrific Luxe Lash Mascara. The Spring 2014 Collection from FACE Stockholm is a fantastic way to say hello to the new season.  - Lisa

This set is a seven-piece collection that features colored clay for a whole routine that creates a natural, glowy look. The set is pretty much everything you need for a full face of gorgeousness.

Amethyst is my birthstone, so I was really happy to find this jewel inside that huge raspberry makeup bag.

What else was inside?  The truly unique colored clay CC primer.

Mine is in shade light. This is a color-correcting stick that neutralizes imperfections, brightens the complexion, and primes skin for foundation. Just smooth it on and then tap it in with fingers. The CC primer melts right in and creates a perfect canvas for foundation application.

Once you have primed with the CC primer, next up is the colored clay liquid foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 (a World-wide Launch, by the way!) using the bamboo liquid foundation brush.

The colored clay foundation with broad spectrum SPF 15 coverage gives medium but buildable coverage with a satin finish. The bamboo foundation brush is stellar – just press in onto the mesh sifter inside the foundation container then buff onto skin, going from the center out.

Follow that with the colored clay bronzer blush in pink bronze (yet another World-wide Launch).

I can hear all the oohs and aahs and this beaut certainly deserves it! It’s a combination of pinks and golds that warms the complexion and adds a natural glow. Dust it all over for instant warmth, and layer it on the cheeks as a blush.

Moving on up to the eyes, line with the colored clay eyeliner in black (woohoo, another World-wide Launch!) followed by two coats of the stupendous lights, camera, LASHES™ 4-in-1 mascara in Black.

For my eye look above, I am wearing a wash of MAC Painterly. I defined and lined my top lash line and waterline with the new colored clay eye liner in Black, which is a velvety eyeliner that truly glides on easily. Then, I finished with two coats of  lights, camera, LASHES(TM) 4-in-1 mascara. This is a seriously fantastic mascara, one of my top mascaras ever.  It gives great length, volume, and curl, plus it never smears on me. Love it.

The final touch for your tarte Shades of Clay look? The golden raspberry LipSurgence™ lip gloss in true love (can I get a World-wide Launch here?)

Makeup Wars – heavenly foundations

makeup-wars.jpg~original

This week the Makeup War bloggers have decided to take on foundations again. It’s not a new subject for us, or any bloggers, but since we are such fickle pickles most of us change our minds more often than the typical pickle. I have a box filled (or overfilled) with foundation, BB Cream and CC Cream. Choosing which to share was actually easier than I thought since I looked at my vanity and saw 6 bottles and tubes that I’d been switching between for the last several months. So that’s what you see here (along with my laundry room!).

Makeup Wars Heavenly Foundation picks February 2014 @beautyinfozone

Makeup Wars Heavenly Foundation picks February 2014 @beautyinfozone

There are 3 foundations that have been in heavy rotation. These are the items I’ve used the most in January especially.

Makeup Wars foundations: Senna Lasting Illusion, Eddie Funkhouser Luxlight Revitalizing Foundation, Lancome Teint Miracle

Makeup Wars foundations: Senna Lasting Illusion, Eddie Funkhouser Luxlight Revitalizing Foundation, Lancome Teint Miracle

Senna Lasting Illusion Satin Matte Foundation – I recently reviewed this and to be honest it’s been on my face almost constantly the last few weeks. I’m crazy about the finish of this foundation. It’s the fullest of the three I’m sharing but it’s not so full that it’s mask-like. It covers my imperfections beautifully and lasts wonderfully even in the harsh weather we’ve had in Michigan. I can’t get over how much I like it. I have new items to review but I don’t want to put this away.

Eddie Funkhouser Luxlight Revitalizing Foundation – I need to write a review of this soon. This is the lightest weight, sheerest of the foundations shown but some days that’s exactly what I need. You can build this up to give a fuller coverage though. It’s a beautiful luminizing finish. It comes in 6 shades and it’s only $14.99.

Lancome Teint Miracle – I’ve had this particular bottle at least 3 years but it’s just as good as ever. I know some people wouldn’t keep it that long but as a blogger I am constantly switching and testing. Yet I come back to Teint Miracle often. If I’m asked about Lancome this is what I recommend too. It’s available in an amazing 31 shades so there’s something for everyone here. When I first reviewed it (January 2012) it was available in 16 shades. They’ve since doubled the amount of shades and raised the price $6. I will most likely rebuy this with the right gwp some day.

Makeup Wars Foundations - CC Cream version with It Cosmetics, Kate Somerville Illumikate CC, Pur Minerals

Makeup Wars Foundations – CC Cream version with It Cosmetics, Kate Somerville Illumikate CC, Pur Minerals

My BB creams are all put away for now but 3 of the CC Creams I have are still playing a big part in my rotation. I use these often when I’m in a hurry because they contain skincare elements and SPF but I also use them because I love the finish of them.

IT Cosmetics Your Skin but Better CC+ Cream has been mentioned by me so often that you are probably tired of the repetition. But when something is this good, it’s worth me telling you over and over. As much as I love this brand and want to recommend it all to you, this is my absolute favorite product from them. This fickle pickle has told you other products were her favorite but this is the true favorite. When I first reviewed it was summer, now it’s winter and it’s still just as wonderful.

Kate Somerville IllumiKate CC Cream is my newest CC Cream and it’s another winner. This only comes in 4 shades though. I was sent this in Fair to review but it’s still a little dark. The solution for me is to take some of my tarte maracuja concealer and mix them, about 1/3 concealer to 2/3 IllumiKate. That color works and I have this beautiful glow that has SPF 50. Look for a full review very soon on this.

Pur Minerals CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is another favorite that works for me year round. I’ve worn this in all seasons except spring and my skin loves it in all of those seasons. The consistency is mousse-like and spreads so easily.

This fickle pickle is officially declaring these 6 products her favorite foundation picks. But don’t be surprised to hear of more later though since I have a few more products to review for you. Fickleness can be delightful!! Have you worn any of these 6? If not which would you most want to try? — Marcia

Please read what these other lovely ladies have decided to share with us. Sharing is caring!

Senna Lasting Illusion foundation wins our heart

senna foundation

Senna Cosmetics is an amazing company. You have to look long and hard to find a company of this size and stature that remains independent. So many of the cosmetic companies that we know and love end up being bought up by a conglomerate. That’s not saying it’s bad since it isn’t. But it’s hard to remain true to your vision if you are no longer the sole owner.

Eugenia Weston created Senna Cosmetics Studios in 1976. She was the first professional makeup artist to create natural and wearable colors for women like us. Here’s one of the things we admire her for: “Her mission of bringing beauty to every woman has led her to regularly donate her time and talents to the American Cancer Society’s ’Look Good, Feel Better’ program.”

We appreciate it when Senna sends us items to review and introduce you to and today’s review on Lasting Illusion Foundation is one we especially appreciate. Both Marcia and Lisa have fallen for this foundation. It’s available in 7 shades from Alabaster to Chestnut in order to reach women of many skin colors.

Alabaster: pale ivory for fair skin tones

Buff: light beige for light skin tones

Sand: neutral beige for medium skin tones

Beige: cool beige for medium/ tan skin tones

Golden Beige: warm honey for medium/ tan skin tones

Tan: tan for medium dark skin tones

Chestnut: dark tan for deeper skin tones

The full name of this foundation is LASTING ILLUSION SKIN MATTE FOUNDATION. It was created to last for 16 hours. Here’s what Senna tells us about the foundation: “The modern satin matte finish captures and reflects light from fine lines and wrinkles for an exceptionally youthful appearance. It erases imperfections, won’t settle into lines, and looks seamless on the skin. Works beautifully for all ages and skin types.” Now let’s hear what Marcia and Lisa want to tell us about Lasting Illusion.

MARCIA’S EXPERIENCE WITH ALABASTER:

Senna Lasting Illusion Foundation

Senna Lasting Illusion Foundation

I was sent Alabaster which is the lightest shade in the Lasting Illusion line up and it’s a perfect match for me. I wear the lightest or second lightest shade in foundations generally. The name Alabaster makes it sound like it’s almost white but the foundation has just enough color in it to make my skin look close to flawless. I’ve seen Lasting Illusion described as a medium to full coverage but in my opinion it’s not full coverage. It allows my cute freckles to show through without making my face look like I’m wearing a mask.

Senna Lasting Illusion Foundation swatch in Alabaster

Senna Lasting Illusion Foundation swatch in Alabaster

The name describes this as a matte foundation but at the same time it’s satiny. When I think of matte I think of flat and Senna Lasting Illusion isn’t flat. It gives an aura of perfect skin.

In addition to loving this foundation (and I do love it) I also love the bottle. It’s elegant looking so it looks great on my vanity. With a pump to dispense the foundation it’s sanitary and easy to use. I’ve been using it for weeks and so far I’ve never gotten too much pumped out.

LISA’S EXPERIENCE WITH BUFF:

Senna

Senna Lasting Illusion Satin Matte Foundation

I agree with Marcia – this foundation is a total winner. The bottle is truly elegant and I feel all chic and sophisticated using it. It is very refreshing to find some fun in foundation!

Senna Lasting Illusion Foundation FOD

My shade is Buff, and it’s perfect for my NW23 skin. I tend to have an oily t-zone so I like matte foundations, although they can result in what I call ‘boring’ skin. This foundation is a satin matte, so I get the oil control without that dull finish. I also prefer full coverage foundations and while this isn’t full coverage it is wonderfully buildable and it lasts all day. It is a thick, creamy foundation that is a pleasure to apply. There really isn’ t anything I don’t love about it…my heart has definitely been stolen by Senna Lasting Illusion Foundation!

Allow your heart to be stolen by Senna once again and try this easy to blend, easy to wear, lasting foundation.

Tarte Beyond BB Perfecting Liquid Foundation and Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Concealer swatches

With all the great specials going on at QVC, you may be considering tarte’s Beyond BB Perfecting Liquid Foundation ($39.50 on QVC, this also includes the Balancing Act Foundation Brush) or the new Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Concealer ($25.26 with brush on QVC).  Here’s the info on each, plus swatches.

tarte BB

tarte Beyond BB Perfecting Liquid Foundation and Balancing Act Foundation Brush on QVC

What is it: Combining all the benefits of a BB cream with the coverage of a foundation, tarte’s Beyond BB Perfecting Liquid Foundation delivers medium-to-full coverage and a semi-matte finish while it moisturizes, protects, covers, corrects, and brightens.

Who is it for: Anyone looking for a foundation that moisturizes, evens, and illuminates skin from within.

Why is it different: The medium-to-full-coverage formula delivers a semi-matte, natural finish while moisturizing and evening out skin tone. Infused with tarte’s multi-mineral complex, it nourishes and conditions skin while protecting with SPF 15. Optically activated particles diffuse light to illuminate skin and blur the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for flawless-looking skin.

Our review of the new Beyond BB Perfecting Liquid Foundation is coming up soon. In the meantime, here are some swatches:

Another promising new tarte product is the Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Concealer ($25.26 with Double Ended Airbrush Concealer brush on QVC).

Give imperfections the boot with this Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Concealer. Blendable and buildable, it covers beautifully, giving you a perfectly flawless-looking complexion. Amazonian clay helps to balance any skin type–it works on oily skin by minimizing oil around pores and also works on dry skin by hydrating. The waterproof formula is ideal for 12-hour wear and features a weightless texture you’ll love. 

We are working on our review and for now here are swatches – we did not have the shade Medium to swatch:
