These days everyone wants to be a unicorn – the more ethereal and iridescent, the better. Garish disco ball glitter is out – soft, floaty, fairy dust loveliness is IN. A fabulous way to find your magic is with the Osmosis Colour Body Shimmer Powder in Opal ($30). Not only is this magical fairy dust gorgeous, it’s also good for your skin.

Osmosis+ Colour Body Shimmer Powder in Opal

The Osmosis Colour Body Shimmer Powder in Opal is infused with Moringa Oil, which is an antioxidant that fights off free radicals. It has a very light scent that is pleasantly floral and not at all overpowering. The powder is in a jar that has a brush attached and the brush twists to allow the powder to come through. The powder can be used anywhere on the body and face.

Initially, the Body Shimmer Powder in Opal goes on lightly for soft, sheer metallic iridescence. A quick swipe is all that is needed for a some glimmer on cheekbones.

And after!

For extra unicorn magic, give arms, legs, decolletage, or even hair a few more passes.   It still looks demure until you step into the sun, and then wow – it really does become magical, shimmering and shining like crazy.

Wearing my Osmosis+ Colour Body Shimmer Powder in Opal

Like all proper unicorns, the Osmosis Colour Body Shimmer Powder in Opal is gluten-free and vegan. I just love this for summer. It looks great on bare legs and arms, and if you are going out dancing it couldn’t be any more fun. And don’t forget, while you are bringing out your inner unicorn, you are also fighting off free radicals! It just doesn’t get any better than that.  – Lisa

Models Own Sculpt & Glow Highlighter Powder

Models Own is a UK brand that I must admit I hadn’t heard of until Marcia told me about it and I saw her pic she snapped at Ulta. Love the display…this just looks like tons of fun, doesn’t it??

I got to test out the Sculpt & Glow Highlighter Powder in Golden Sand. I thought it looked too young for me. Swatched heavily, it looks quite shimmery and more like something my daughters and nieces would swoon over…but not like something that my middle-aged face would find very flattering.

I was in for a surprise because this sheers out to be more of a glow than a shimmer. It is possible to put on too much and get shimmery, but a few brush strokes and skin gets diffuse, glowy, and happy. Golden Sand smooths edges out better than an Instagram filter and instantly brightens dull, sallow skin. It also really lasts a long time. Most powder highlighters seem to stick around for about two or three hours on me, but this one doesn’t seem to fade – I can still detect it even after 8 hours of wear. I used to have a similar highlighter from Chanel that was LE and I remember almost crying when I ran out. Now I feel like I finally have my replacement!

I am guessing the other shade that is available, Peach Pearl, is just as gorgeous.  The pan is huge and price point is fantastic.  Next time you are wandering through Ulta, wander over to that Models Own display and definitely check out the Sculpt & Glow Highlighter Powder.  Golden Sand is beautiful, glowy fun.  – Lisa

A reason to be thrilled – Models Own has come to Ulta

I am not a dancer but I was doing a jig when I received four Models Own products. I hadn’t even realized that the brand was going to be readily available at Ulta. The thrill continued when I made a trip to Ulta and saw the beautiful line there for me to purchase as well.

Models Own is a UK line that had me drooling over their nail polishes years ago. Trying to get my hands on one was a real effort but I was finally able to swap with someone to send it my way and I wasn’t disappointed. Now though we can get our hands on all their amazing products – all 650 eye, face, and lip products can be ours. Their goal is to put fun and creativity back into cosmetics. As they say BRAVERY IN BEAUTY.

The very first product I needed to use was Models Own Sculpt & Glow Highlighter Powder in Golden Sand. I can’t resist highlighters and I prayed that this wouldn’t be shimmery. I danced for sure once I applied this beautiful light gold powder for no sparkles were to be found. Just pure beautiful color that glowed and glowed. I can wear this day or night because it’s subtle enough that I’m not a disco ball nor do I look greasy.

Regularly priced at $11.99 it’s on sale now for $8.99 and you can use a $3.50 coupon on Models Own!! This also comes in Peach Pearl which looks stunning.

Models Own Matte Liquid Lipstick in Coral Fresh

Models Own Matte Liquid Lipstick in Coral Fresh

Models Own LIX Matte Liquid Lipstick comes in 6 brave and bright shades. The pigmentation on Coral Fresh is absolutely amazing. Your lips are covered with this gorgeous shade in one coat. It practically applies itself. It’s not a lipstick that I can apply without a mirror since the color has intensity and will stain. I wore it this week and had Chinese food and it didn’t stand up to the soup but it left a pretty stain behind. As all mattes go this is drying so make sure your lips are exfoliated and balmed for lasting beauty.

Besides Coral Fresh you need to look into Raspberry Mojito, Berry Cool, Candy Cane, Strawberry Mojito, and Eucalyptus Pink. Each of these have a light minty taste but no stinging is involved. On sale now for $5.99 you absolutely won’t believe that they aren’t a higher end luxury lip product.

Models Own I-Definer Eyeliner Duo in Midnight

Models Own I-Definer Eyeliner Duo in Midnight

I not only danced when I used Models Own I-Definer Eyeliner Duo in Midnight but I did a somersault which for someone in my shape is actually impossible! But this has everything I could possibly want in an eyeliner. The two sided liner has a smooth as can be roll up pencil on one end and a perfect felt liquid liner on the other. I’m a fool for liquid liner but I’m very picky about the tip of them. Models Own did it right. The tip is firm and glides on.

It’s also available in Umber (which I ordered!!) and Azure. I hope they add a purple in the future. On sale for $7.49 right now makes it a steal. If you like wearing a cat eye then you absolutely need this pencil/liquid for a perfect look.models own ulta palettes

As an eyeshadow maven I was thrilled to see the array in Ulta. On sale right now it’s the perfect time to add to your palette wardrobe. Look at my pretty Models Own Colour Chrome Eyeshadow Palette.

A palette that I think was made especially for me. If you like cream eyeshadow then you are going to love this!! With 10 gorgeous shades I can play to my hearts content. I could almost be on Dancing With The Stars since I got so excited to use this.

Top row swatches of Models Own Colour Chrome: Platinum, Electrum, Rose Gold, Emerald, Superior

Top row swatches of Models Own Colour Chrome: Platinum, Electrum, Rose Gold, Emerald, Superior

Platinum is a bright white with sparkles, the color isn’t intense. A good way to use this is to pat it over other shadows with your fingertip.

Electrum is a khaki shade that can be applied lightly or can be build up to a truer khaki.

Rose Gold is a stunning rose gold, not orange like my picture.

Emerald is the color of the turquoise sea.

Superior is a beautiful cool toned blue.

Bottom row swatches of Models Own Colour Chrome: Pure Gold, Nickel, Iron Oxide, Pewter, Slicked

Bottom row swatches of Models Own Colour Chrome: Pure Gold, Nickel, Iron Oxide, Pewter, Slicked

Pure Gold is exactly that, a bright yellow gold.

Nickel is my favorite, it’s more of a bronze than a copper. It looks beautiful paired with Pure Gold.

Iron Oxide is a light silver with sparkles.

Pewter is a charcoal shade with a navy undertone that I love.

Slicked is a sparkly light gray. It’s similar to Platinum in the amount of sparkle in it.

My personal favorites are Rose Gold, Superior, Pure Gold, Nickel, and Pewter. Platinum and Slicked are too sheer and sparkly for me personally.

Since this is a cream palette it may or may not crease on you. I always use an eyeshadow primer which prevents it from creasing on me. Using a light sheer powder shade over the cream can also help with creasing. While cream shadows can be a little harder to blend, they are so easy for me to use so I love them.

Discover the best-selling, award-winning Bye Bye Pores Pressed™ Powder from IT Cosmetics™, now infused with Drops of Light Technology™ for subtle radiance without glitter or shimmer.

This is a stunningly beautiful pressed powder that gives a fantastic glow to your complexion.  If you are tired, sick, or just feeling a little flat, a quick sweep of this soft powder and skin looks young and fresh.  I love it!

2. New Shades! Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination™ Available in 2 new shades (6 shades total!), Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination™ brightens the look of your entire eye area and delivers highly pigmented, anti-aging full coverage that never creases or cracks!

 I am a long-time fan of the original Bye Bye Under Eye™, and this new version is the classic formula along with IT Cosmetic’s Drops of Light Technology™. It combines everything I love about the classic concealer – long wear, full coverage, skin-loving ingredients – along with a luminescence that helps it conceal blue and red areas to perfection.  I have the Medium shade swatched above. I used the tiniest bit of concealer – just a dot goes an incredibly long way. I find the best way to use this is to spread the concealer on the back of my hand as my body temperature helps to warm up the concealer so it spreads easily. Then I dot it on under my eyes and around my nose, continuing to gently pat to blend it in.

3. First Time in a TSV! Bye Bye Lines Serum™ Formulated with Drops of Light Optical Blurring Technology™, plus peptides, caviar extract, hydrolyzed collagen and algae, this weightless anti-aging serum helps increase skin hydration and helps improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles for your most beautiful skin!

The Bye Bye Lines Serum is so great that Marcia already used up her first bottle and has made her way almost completely through her second. This is true love! It’s so hydrating and contains all the ingredients to make the most of skin. “While deeply hydrating hyaluronic acid, argan oil and babassu oil restore moisture and aid skin barrier repair, vitamins A, C, E, B1, B2, B3, B5, B7, B9 and CoQ10 work synergistically with skin-brightening licorice root to restore the look of youthful vitality and radiance for your most beautiful complexion!”

4. Bestseller! Bye Bye Makeup™ Formulated to be non-irritating, your 3-in-1 hydrating sulfate-free cleanser, purifying instant makeup remover and anti-aging serum leaves your complexion appearing soft, smooth and radiant!

Bye Bye Makeup™  is a unique take on a cleanser. It’s not a cream, it’s a solid that melts immediately with body temperature, and it’s applied to dry skin like cleansing oil. I was initially very conservative with it, just sliding my fingers across the top and then smoothing it on, but I finally realized that it was ok to ‘dig in’ and get a chunk. The cleanser has a nice, light citrus scent that is very pleasant and doesn’t hang around long.  It takes off all makeup, including eye makeup, without the need for a separate makeup remover. Second, it is one heck of a moisturizer, leaving skin not only cleansed but also crazy soft and hydrated. It’s also an anti-aging skin serum. Normally, I think that any sort of treatment is wasted in a cleanser – after all, it’s getting washed off and going down the sink, right? But this one is activated as soon as it touches your skin, and it actually creates a sort of barrier keeping moisture in while also giving skin a glowy radiance. I have nothing but raves for this excellent paraben- and sulfate-free cleanser.

Heavenly Skin™ Bye Bye Pores™ Powder Brush

5. Bestseller! Heavenly Skin™ Bye Bye Pores™ Powder Brush Your game-changing brush features ultra-soft Heavenly Skin™ cruelty-free brush hair for your smoothest application, and hugs the natural contours of your features for a flawlessly airbrushed finish. Pairs perfectly with your Bye Bye Pores Illumination™ powder!

The  is one heck of a brush.  It’s soft and feels terrific, but it has enough heft to pick up product and distribute and buff in beautifully.  IT really does brushes right, and this one is no exception.  I love it with the Illumination Powder.

The IT Cosmetics™ IT’s Your Bye Bye Breakthroughs! 5-Piece Collection TSV is a fantastic set – you’ve got a gorgeous highlighting powder and the perfect brush to partner with it; beautiful illuminating concealer that comes in two new shades; a serum so good that my picky partner Marcia swears by it; and a 3-in-1 makeup remover that also acts as a moisturizer and a skin treatment.  All this for about $80!!!  It’s a steal.  Order one for yourself today – and get one for your mom, too.  – Lisa

Looking for a pop of color, a little brightness? Beautiful skin texture and some glow?  Then you’ve got to check out these three new multi-tasking palettes from IT Cosmetics! The Confidence In Your Glow palettes ($32) are ombre powders that act as highlighters, bronzers, and blushes. They brighten skin and warm the complexion with one sweep of the Heavenly Skin™ One-Sweep Wonder Brush #705…which is also pretty cool. There are lots of reasons to give this collection a gander.

Heavenly Skin One-Sweep Wonder Brush #705

The Heavenly Skin One-Sweep Wonder Brush #705 is a new IT Cosmetics brush. IT Cosmetics does a lot of things right and brushes are a specialty. This brush is flat with dual-fiber hairs and a tapered brush head. The handle is short and designed more for sweeping across the face, not for precision work. It’s great with these palettes. Even if you are a bit ham-handed like me, skin ends up looking soft and glowy. The bristles are treated with anti-aging collagen, silk, peptides, niacin and antioxidants, and you can use this brush to apply everything from liquids to powders and from skin care to color products.

The Confidence In Your Glow powder palettes – interestingly! – smell nice, like oranges. The powder is creamy and blends like a dream. The palettes have a really smooth skin texture and give it a soft, diffused look. I tried to use the different shades within the ombre separately, but that didn’t really work for me…I get the best result just sweeping my brush across the whole palette, which then gives a beautiful color that I can build into a deeper shade if I want.

Nude Glow warms the complexion and is a wonderful bronzer and contour shade. Natural Glow is definitely more of a highlighter/natural blush shade. Warm Glow is a peachy/pink bronzer/blush, and boy is it pretty…I can’t tell you how often I reach for this. I wear Nude Glow to warm up and contour my skin first, then sweep either Natural Glow or Warm Glow onto my cheek bones almost every day.

You can find all three shades of Confidence in Your Glow as well as the Heavenly Skin™ One-Sweep Wonder Brush #705  at IT Cosmetics online and at Ulta. Be sure to pick these up and post your own confident glow, and tag #ITsMyConfidence! – Lisa

Mamma Mia! Maya Chia!

maya chia logoCan oil shimmer?  Maya Chia Highlight of the Day illuminating serum can.

Maya Chia is a relatively young beauty brand which presents itself as a non-toxic beauty line. The Maya Chia product line is created by Susanne Norwitz, who has a lifelong interest in the Maya people through her doctor father. The brand uses a proprietary process to extract the chia oil, called supercritical extraction. It results in a completely pure oil, which is free from any chemical residues and impurities.

Chia Seed plant

Chia Seed plant

In keeping with making healthy choices for skin care and make up, I decided to try both of these serums (Happy Hour and Golden Hour) as I particularly love this brand.

Maya Chia Illuminating Serum

Maya Chia Illuminating Serum

Drop a small amount from the pipette onto your fingers and rub them together to obtain the optimum consistency. You can blend it into your moisturizer or foundation for an all over sheen or apply it as you would any highlighter onto the high points of your face.

The Maya Chia website says: The pearlized mineral sheen is suspended in an ultra lightweight, easily absorbed infusion of the world’s most nutrient-rich botanicals. It is makeup that is a treat for the health of your skin and what we hope will be a highlight to your day.

The highlight of the day is available in two shades:

the happy hour — imparts a cool-toned pink radiance – as if you are radiating with joy.

Maya Chia Happy Hour Serum

Maya Chia Happy Hour Serum

the golden hour — imparts a warm, golden, champagne-like radiance – as if you are lit by candlelight.

Maya Chia The Happy Hour

Maya Chia The Happy Hour

The color descriptions are right on the money. I’ve even combined the two for a pink champagne tone. You can layer for more intensity if you prefer although one layer works well enough for me.  

I can’t find good swatches of them online nor do they show up well on camera. There are several good YouTube videos that show them in action and you can get an idea of how they look on the skin by accessing them. Here’s my favorite one.

I spent $42 on each of the serums and if you have some texture (polite way of saying wrinkles and pores) these do not emphasize them as some highlighters do. You have to shake the bottle well and then dispense a small amount from the pipette into your hand. They work equally well on bare, moisturized or made up skin. You can apply it over blush also. The only gripe I have is a minor one- the name of the product is only on the box, not the bottle. 

Maya Chia Illuminating Serums (alluremagazine)

Maya Chia Illuminating Serums (alluremagazine)

If you’re curious about the ingredients, here they are from the Maya Chia website: The Highlight of the Day uses the highest quality natural, organic and wildcrafted ingredients from conscious growers from around the world. Our highlighting serum is never formulated with parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrances, PEGs, and SLSs

Ingredients: Supercritical Chia (Salvia hispanica) Seed Oil, Brassica Oleracea (Broccoli) Seed Oil, Capriylic/ Capric Triglyceride, *Calendula Officinalis (Calendula) Flower Extract, *Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil, Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Mica, Iron Oxide, Titanium Oxide,  *2% Essential Oils

*Organic Ingredients or Wildcrafted (when available)

There is a charitable aspect to Maya Chia which makes this brand even more favorable to me. “The little chia seed has been revered by the Maya people of Central America – and for good reason. Packed with the highest concentration of essential antioxidant of any botanical source, the chia seed is also rich in Omegas, vitamins and minerals.

At Maya Chia, we want to give back to the Maya people of Central and South American who gave so much to us for thousands of years. A percentage of our net profits will be donated to helping the Maya people of Central and South America.”

Oil see you in my next post.  —  Phyllis

Also available at Integrity Botanicals which occasionally has this in their samples w/purchase.

Pixi Beauty has delightfully come out with two new sets to keep us Pixiholics happy. I was sent Hello Roses!, the pink set for those of us who love cool tones, and there’s also Hello Glow! in case you prefer peach shades. I promise you can’t go wrong.

Pixi Beauty Blush Duo in Rose Gold brought out the first big smile upon unboxing this. Two silky blushes that apply like silk. Blush and highlight together cuts down on clutter. These shades are very subtle though you can build them up. My swatches are barely seen in the picture but the duo looks lovely when on my face. No shimmer is allowed even on the highlighter side. Instead it reflects light creating a subtle glow.

Pixi Glow Booster in Pink Pearl

What isn’t available anywhere except in this kit is the Glow Booster. This beautiful PinkPearl cream adds a delightful radiance that is particularly flattering on my cool toned skin. It can be applied under your makeup, mixed in with foundation, or applied just where you want to bring some attention. I l.o.v.e. that it’s not fragranced and I love the subtle iridescence of it. My favorite ways to use this is either right on my cheeks prior to apply blush or just above my cheekbones to bring just a touch of gleam.

Last is Pixi’s LipLift Max ($14 separately) in Sheer Rose. LipLift Max is available in three shades and I’m always using the clear Petal Ice. Now I have Sheer Rose to add color to my lips alone or over lipstick.

LipLift Max in Sheer Rose

Volume-maximizing lip treatment with a cooling sensation and glossy finish. Peptides hydrate, firm and plump. Added aloe heals, jojoba moisturizes and chamomile soothes. Fresh mint flavor.

Sheer Rose has a brown undertone to it and works perfectly with the blush duo and glow booster.

Like all Pixi products these are cruelty free and reasonably priced. Pixi doesn’t bombard us with new items so it’s very exciting when they do bring out some of the beauty line. I’m always enticed by Pixi and love that I can order it online at their website, target.com or go to a Target store to find something special.  —  Marcia
