Pixi Pretties with Chloe Morello

Pixi + Chloe Morello

As much as I love Pixi Beauty and Pixi Skintreats I can’t help but be extra thrilled when Pixi comes out with new palettes. Palettes are my jam and I’m always on the lookout for the newest and best. That’s where Chloe Morello comes into the picture. She’s one of three influencers that Pixi by Petra chose to collaborate with on their pretties.

Pixi Romantic Radiance palette by Chloe Morello and Lip Icing in Cake

Palette Chloette aka Romantic Radiance has everything I could possibly want – 3 perfect blushes, 6 lovely eyeshadows and a trio of colors for lining and brows. This is a face palette at its very best.

In quoting Chloe Morello for Pixi Beauty I’ve got to say that she accomplished what she set out to: “Being in love is one of those times where you look your most radiant, and the look inspired me to create these two products. The palette has all the shades to create a beautiful naturally luminous look while the lip gloss brings the most amazing sparkle and dimension.”

Pixi + Chloe Morello palette

I am totally crazy about the blush in this palette. I’ve been craving new blush and these 3 are making me thrilled. In spite of my horrid swatch photos (I’ve got to buy a new camera ASAP) the blush are perfect on my skin. I can use just one or blend two together with ease. They apply smoothly and last the day.

Top swatch is a peach with just a touch of pink to keep it from becoming too warm. Middle swatch is a neutral pink making it easy to wear with both warm and cool shadows. The bottom is a rosy brown in the palette but has more coral to it once on my fair skin.

The 6 eyeshadow shades are the colors I love to wear day in and day out. I used to wear strictly purple shadows and their coordinating colors but I now NEED golds and browns. These are shades that I can wear all day no matter what the occasion and then spice up to make them a little zestier for evening.

The trio are matte shades that of course can be used as eyeshadow but I like to use these for my eyebrows mostly. At $24 this is one of the most versatile and easy to wear palettes I have. A true keeper.

Now let’s talk about the second part of the Chloe Morello collection – the Lip Icing. This particular shade of Lip Icing is called Cake and it absolutely glitters and glows. This is how you add that zest you want for your night out.

I’ve got other Lip Icings and I love them. Cake is so unique ($14) since it adds a 3D glimmer. It’s gold but it has beautiful pink and lavender shimmer shot through it. It plays beautifully in light and would make a special lip for a candlelit dinner worn either alone or to enhance a favorite lipstick.

At my ancient age glitter isn’t my thing but the iridescence of the gloss makes me want to wear it in spite of the calendar.

All three of the collections (Chloe Morello, Dulce Candy, and Weylie Houng) are ones you don’t want to miss out on. They are available online at Pixi Beauty’s website. You need Palette Chloette in your life, I just know you do!  —  Marcia

Bring out your beauty by hiding it with Express Color

Yes the title is an oxymoron but so is Express Color. This is a double duty product made to camouflage both your grey hair and to emphasize your eyebrows. Here’s the basics of Express Color: “The Express Color Kit provides a fast, easy-to-use solution to covering new growth at the roots between permanent hair color applications.
It only takes a few minutes to brush or rub this semi-solid formula on your hair or scalp for an instant fix. It’s like make-up for your hair!” It’s also recommended for eyebrows. Express Color is a water-resistant hair cosmetic that washes out when you want it to wash out – not before then.

samples

The kits contain The Express Color Compact that holds the color pan, an eyebrow brush and a hair applicator brush. It’s available in five shades so that everyone can find what they are looking for. ($29.95)

Marcia wears Drk Brn (aka Dark Brown)

I’ll admit that I didn’t read the instructions the first time I used Express Color. I knew it would help with my regrowth and that it was also for my brows but I didn’t realize it wasn’t a powder. It seemed difficult to pick up the color on the brush at first until I realized that this isn’t a powder. Instead it’s much better since it’s wax based which makes it longer wearing that isn’t going anywhere until I want to remove it.

Express Color

At first I used it just on my eyebrows since at that time my roots weren’t threatening to show the true me. I found it was a little harder to apply since I expected it to be a powder but once I got the hang of it I began using it daily. What I love about eyebrow use is that it lasts all day long. Absolutely no fading away or rubbing away. It’s smooth and makes no mess at all.

Express Color in Drk Brn

Once I get to the 3 week mark after having my hair tinted I have a few too many roots showing. And to no one’s surprise they don’t go away. I don’t like going to the salon too often so stretching it out with Express Color is the way to go. I’ve been using the larger brush that came with the kit to make the gray disappear. I start with my part and then brush more of the color around the part and through the top of my hair lightly. That makes it all blend in. Since it doesn’t come off at night I have clean pillowcases and no gray showing in the morning. I’ve also used it along my temples and the color doesn’t come off on my glass stems.

Express Color Drk Brn (after two uses)

In 2018 I’ll be on a 3 week trip and Express Color will be coming abroad with me. It won’t break or spill. It does double duty. It’s lightweight. And it wants to stay with me!

Lisa wears Med Brn (Medium Brown):

Express Color Medium Brown

Like Marcia, I was very surprised that the Express Color was a wax. It looks like a powder, so I couldn’t figure out why it was difficult to get pigment on the brushes…then it occurred to me it would be a great idea to read directions! I do prefer wax for eyebrows, actually, for two reasons. One, wax keeps my eyebrows in place.  Two, wax gives a bit of texture and doesn’t smear. So the wax was a happy discovery.

Express Color Medium Brown

Express Color Medium Brown

The Medium Brown is a perfect color for my medium brown hair. It’s just a shade or two lighter, which is what you want your eyebrows to be – slightly lighter than your hair color. It’s not so light that it doesn’t also work on my grey roots, thankfully. My gray roots happen to be WHITE, so it doesn’t really work on my part – I need heavy-duty help for that area. However, it does work wonders on those areas around my ears that I can’t easily get with root spray.

I definitely like the two brushes that are included in this set.

The larger brush is great for covering up gray areas, and the smaller one is the classic shape and size for eyebrows. These brushes are excellent quality and well worth the price point.

Overall, this is a terrific little set for bringing out your beauty by hiding what you just don’t want people to see!  You can find Express Color online at myexpresscolor.com.  Take a look to find your perfect color.

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

Rita Hazan Root Concealer Touch Up Stick

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

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.

Rita Hazan Root Concealer Touch Up Stick

Rita Hazan Root Concealer Touch Up Stick

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

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.

I’m really happy with how easy Rita Hazan has made doing my brows so it’s easy for me to recommend this stick. This stick is going to be sticking with me for many years. Do you have eyebrow problems?  —  Marcia

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

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

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

Go to bed with a WINK and a SHINE #PinkWink

amalie beauty wink and shine

Today I want to introduce you to the second half of my Amalie Beauty skincare routine. I’ve told you about Amelie Beauty SHINE Organic Brightening Face Oil (reviewed here) previously but want to reiterate what I love about it. This terrific facial oil has not only helped my skin but it’s taught me a big lesson about fragrance. When SHINE and WINK were sent for review and I read about them I was a little, or maybe more than a little, worried about the fragrance of SHINE. But I wanted the effects of this: hydration, nourishment, diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles, naturally fade dark spots and blemishes, and end up with a more even skin tone.

Amalie Beauty Shine Brightening Face Oil

Amalie Beauty Shine Brightening Face Oil

SHINE Organic Brightening Face Oil has a jasmine fragrance so you’d expect this fragrance-phobe to run the other way but that didn’t happen. I love the scent and find it soothing to use at bedtime. While SHINE can be used morning or night I prefer it at night since it’s a little less absorbant than some facial oils.

Amalie Beauty Shine Brightening Face Oil

Amalie Beauty Shine Brightening Face Oil

SHINE is not alone in going to bed with me, WINK is right there too. I delayed writing about WINK Lash & Brow Enhancing Oil for a few reasons. First it sells out so quickly that I wanted to be sure that it was in stock for you to buy. And more important WINK, starting on October 1, 2016, turned pink. You are going to hear a lot of BCA this month and what companies are going to do to help fight for the cure. But no one is going to be as unique and helpful as Amalie Beauty. For every tube of WINK sold they will donate one to a cancer warrior to help them regrow their lashes and brows that have been lost through chemotherapy. #PinkWink #BOGOforthe cure

If I could do cartwheels I’d do them after using WINK Lash & Brow Enhancing Oil for the last two months. I use this almost every single night on my eyebrows and about 2 – 3 times a week on my lashline. I never had to go through actual chemotherapy but I was on chemo drugs for almost 2 years. In that time my hair loss was considerable and my eyelashes and brows became skimpy. There’s a lot of self-deprecation when this goes on. I wasn’t feeling well and I hated the way I looked. But by the grace of god I came through it all and went into remission. It’s been over 5 years and my doctor tells me I’m good to go. When I fell two years ago and was in rehab I went through the process again though not due to drugs. Having WINK come into my life has been a savior. While I plucked my eyebrows in between my eyes, I just kept watching my brows get skimpier and skimpier. Now I am back to plucking!!!! Who ever thought that would be an accomplishment? We mostly complain about plucking but WINK has helped to make my brows fuller. I know that they’ll never be back to normal but I’m not getting any younger so that’s typical.

WINK Lash & Brow Enhancing Oil

WINK Lash & Brow Enhancing Oil

This is strictly a bedtime babe for me. Directions say to click the pen 180 degrees to get the product to come out on the brush, apply it to brows and/or your lashline, massage it gently in. That’s it. Since I wear eye makeup every day this would interfere but I can and do use it at bedtime.

Amalie Beauty WINK

Amalie Beauty WINK

Why use this? As you can see above WINK conditions, strengthens, and enhances your eyelash and eyebrow hairs. WINK is a mix of Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9 essential fatty acids from a variety of natural nut and seed oils. Studies have been done that have shown that applying essential fatty acids topically can help awaken dormant follicles. It doesn’t promise to regrow hair but personally it has helped me, especially on my eyebrows. A tube should last you 60 days but I’ve used mine longer and can see there’s a lot left in it.

I hope you’ll read the story behind #PinkWink and #BOGOforcure here, I know you’ll be as touched as I am. Do yourself a favor and add this wonderful product to your routine. At the same time you’ll be helping someone who’s in need.  —  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

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 Auburn Awesome Auburn
Beautiful Blonde Beautiful Blonde
Dazzling Dark Brown Dazzling Dark Brown
Beautiful Brown Luscious Light Brown
Tantalizing Taupe Tantalizing Taupe
Elegant Ebony Elegant 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

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??

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.

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
