The best eyeshadow, lip gloss, and nail polish for the Fourth of July

Happy Fourth of July!  Here is a holiday cosmetics Rorschach test for you.  What do you see in this photo?

Did you say patriotic Elvis?  Or did you say inspiration for your Fourth of July cosmetics???

Since you read this blog, I am guessing the latter.  And I’m with you!  Here are my top red, white, and blue eyeshadows, lippies, and nail polishes.

Red white and blue!

All you need for the Fourth of July!

Let’s start with RED.

My red choices always tend to be on the ‘berry’ side of the realm.  Face Stockholm has the consummate raspberry red eyeshadow with Pearl Eyeshadow 24 – and yes, it does double duty as a blush.  It even does triple duty as a lip stain when mixed with some clear lip gloss.

Speaking of lippies, my most-loved red for this holiday is tarte cosmetics Lipsurgence Lip Creme in Promise.  This is a chubby lip creme that is self-sharpening and has a slightly minty taste.  It is a primo shiny strawberry red – not too warm or too cool.

My red nail polish choice is – but of course – Zoya in Lisa.  Lisa is the supreme 4th of July red – ruby-red with pink and red shimmer.  It’s fun and festive and not TOO over the top…just like me?  Maybe!

Next is WHITE.  All three of these products should be in every makeup artists bag.  Period.

The cream of the crop white eyeshadow is, hands down, Makeup Geek Eyeshadow in White Lies ($5.99).  This is a pure white matte shade that should be in everyone’s collection.

If you are looking for a true white lip gloss, Whitening Lightning Color Your Smile Lighted Lip Gloss in Phuket Exotic ($24) is your answer.  This is an opaque white gloss that can be worn alone, or it can be mixed with other colors to create a lighter shade.

My go-to white nail polish is Tempest from Cult Nail Polish ($12).   It’s an absolute pure glossy white, and it looks great on its own or is, of course, perfect for nail art.

Last but not least, BLUE.

left to right;

left to right:  Senna Eye Color Glow in Capri; Whitening Lightning in Bahama; Lacquer Lust in Zircon

I adore blue eyeshadow with brown eyes, and my most cherished blue is Senna Eye Color Glow in Capri ($18). It is the loveliest sapphire blue I have ever seen.

My blue lippie choice is yet another from Whitening Lightning, this one is Bahama Exotic.  Yes, it’s a daring choice, but let me tell you that blue makes your teeth look super white!  If you can pull off blue, this is a lip gloss you need.

I have tons of blue nail polishes (can’t say that about lip products, ha!) so this was a difficult choice…but ultimately Laquer Lust’s Zircon ($12.50) won out.  This teal blue with microshimmer was part of the infamous Birthstone Collection, and lucky us it’s still available thanks to a relaunch!  The color is simply stunning, and the reflection from all those fireworks will only make it even better.

For those who would rather categorize by product type, here is the lowdown.

Top 10 Tuesday picks favorite eye creams

Give me eye cream now! Give me eye balm immediately! Give me eye serums ASAP. If it’s for the delicate eye area I want it. I’ve reviewed a lot of eye creams so picking just 10 (or 9 as you’ll see) was extremely difficult. Some came to mind instantly because I’m either using them or I’ve bought them again. Others are ones I really enjoyed but picking between them was a difficult choice. My Top Ten are ones I would recommend without a doubt so let’s see what they are:

1. ALGENIST EYE RENEWAL BALM –  I’m on my second jar of the Algenist plus I’ve used up some sample sizes. This is the first eye cream I thought of when we picked this topic. I chose this for my desert island Beauty Spotlight Team and I’d chose it again.

Algenist Eye Renewal Balm

2. KATE SOMERVILLE KateCeuticals MULTI-ACTIVE EYE CREAM – Kate Somerville makes more than one eye cream. I’m sure they are all wonderful but this one is the most wonderful. My eyes drank this up and begged for more. If you are looking for true anti-aging properties, splurge on this.

Kate Somerville Multi-Active Repair Eye Cream

3. SOMME INSTITUTE EYE – I’ve repurchased every product from Somme Institute. At first I didn’t repurchase EYE but as soon as I was done with it, I missed it. Even though it doesn’t contain SPF it’s one of my favorite daytime eye creams. It’s lightweight and concealer doesn’t crease when I mix it with Somme Eye. Watch for this on Hautelook.

4. SENNA LIFT AND LIGHTEN EYE CREAM – It’s been four years since I reviewed this Senna Eye Cream but I haven’t forgotten it. I bought a second jar at IMATS because I love how it lightens my dark circles and hydrates under my eyes. Plus it’s still only $28 even after all this time.

5. YBF CORRECT – Simple name, not so simple protect. Your Best Face (YBF) tells you succinctly what their products will do and then they prove it by doing research and using the best ingredients to make sure their products work. Correct works!

6. YES TO BLUEBERRIES EYE FIRMING TREATMENT – This is my latest eye cream. I’ve been using it daily for about 6 weeks and I can’t bring myself to move on. It totally surprised me since I’m not a mass market skincare person in general but this has kept my eyes looking less lined, my dark circles at bay and has rid me of morning puffiness. For $15-20 (depending on where you buy it) this is a must to try.

7. LIFT LAB LIFT & FIRM EYE CREAM – The gel like texture of Lift Lab’s Eye Cream is very soothing. It’s lightweight and you don’t even realize you have it on during the daytime. What you will realize is how soft the skin around your eyes feels and how your puffiness isn’t really noticeable.

Lift Lab Lift & Firm Eye Cream

8. EXUVIANCE AGE REVERSE EYE CONTOUR – The name tells you one of the reasons I like this. I won this in a giveaway almost 4 years ago and wish I had it again. My memory is short when it comes to “why did I come into this room” but not on eye creams. It helps firm the collagen around eyes. I need this again.

9. DERMAdoctor WRINKLE REVENGE RESCUE & PROTECT EYE BALM – This does it all. It moisturizes, firms, reduces puffiness, helps eliminate dark circles, helps with fine lines and bakes cookies. Ok, I’m kidding about the cookies but it would if it could. It’s thicker than most of the others I’ve mentioned but sometimes you need that.

DERMAdoctor rescue & protect eye balm

10. EYES by TO GO SPA EYE MASKS – I’m cheating. I can’t help it. When you need a way to make your eyes look less lined and more relaxed you want something like an eye mask. I’ve tried and loved quite a few but I always go back to EYES by ToGoSpa. They now have 3 varieties and it’s hard to pick which you want but you won’t go wrong with any of them. These are collagen eye masks that you want any time you want to look your best.

Now it’s your turn. What are your favorite eye creams (balms, serums, masks, etc.)? I’m sure you have some to recommend and I know my fellow Top 10 bloggers will tempt us with more. — Marcia

Senna HD Hydracover Concealer gives you professional results

Senna HD Hydra-Cover Concealer

Senna HD Hydra-Cover Concealer

Senna Cosmetics has many hidden surprises on their website. Products that are created by Eugenia Weston for her studio and now available online. Once we receive a product from Senna we always fall in love and HD Hydra-Cover Concealer is one to add to that love list. This concealer kit is a makeup artist’s delight. It’s exactly what you’d find a pro would have in their makeup kit.

Senna HD Hydra-Cover Concealer in Shade 1

Senna HD Hydra-Cover Concealer in Shade 1

The palette consists of three complementary shades to correct any imperfections. If you look at your bare skin you’ll notice that it’s not one uniform shade. I personally have some darkness under my eyes, redness by the sides of my nose, and some pigmentation problems on my face. Senna HD Hydra-Cover Concealer takes all of those issues in stride by giving you three shades to use on their own or mix/match to create the perfect shade for that area.

swatches from Shade 1 of Senna HD Hydra-Cover Concealer

swatches from Shade 1 of Senna HD Hydra-Cover Concealer

There are 3 sets:

Shade 1 for fair to light and medium skin, Shade 2 for medium to tan skintones, and Shade 3 for tan to dark skintones. One shade in your trio will be the lightest and peachiest to counterbalance the darkness under your eyes. There will also be one that has a more yellow undertone to it so that you can easily conceal any redness on your face. The last shade is going to be a deeper neutral that is great for pigmentation issues, blemishes and facial flaws. For me that last neutral could also be used as a foundation shade if I needed.

The concealers are concentrated creams so you have to work with them to use them. They don’t have the ease of a liquid but they have better coverage. It’s recommended to use a taklon brush like Senna’s #12 concealer brush. You want a taklon brush since that spreads a cream like this more evenly. For my undereyes though I prefer to use my finger. I usually dab a small amount of eye cream on first, let it set and then use the warmth of my fingers to melt the peachy color under my eyes. I’ll then go over it with a concealer brush to make sure it’s well blended. I’ve previously reviewed Senna’s Mineral Eye Lift Powder and I love using this over the concealer to set it and lighten up that area.

Senna HD Hydra-Cover Concealer

As usual Senna’s packaging is very attractive. This is a slim palette with a full mirror inside (and a tiny brush) that you’d enjoy pulling out of a cosmetic bag. I like having a variety of concealers and foundations in my life since you never know what your face will demand of you each day. If it starts demanding some pro type concealing then Senna HD Hydra-Cover Concealer is just the product for you. — Marcia

Pretty Pinks Lip Lacquer Trio from Senna Cosmetics

Pretty Pinks, a trio of pink shades from Senna Cosmetics, is a fantastic value with a great selection of shades for spring. Right now you can get all three shades for only $39 – normally they would cost $60.

Pretty Pinks

Senna Pretty Pinks

I have been a big fan of  Senna Lip Lacquers for a long time. The texture is thick but not sticky. That said, Lip Lacquers certainly ‘stick’ around longer than most lip glosses on me.  They also have a hint of vanilla flavor, which I find quite pleasant. Lip Lacquers are very moisturizing with Shea Butter, Grape Seed Oil, Jojoba Oil and Mango Seed Butter.

Belladonna

Belladonna Lip Lacquer

Belladonna is the lightest shade of the three. It’s a sparkling pink prism with a bit of iridescence that makes teeth look whiter. There is enough depth from the shimmer to wear this shade alone, but it is truly awesome layered over any matte lip shade.

Flaunt

Flaunt Lip Lacquer

Flaunt is a rose-pink with just a hint of shimmer. This is a very natural shade that is perfect for a casual daytime look. It is also stunning layered over a deeper lip shade.

Chic Pink

Chic Pink, a lively pink glow, is the deepest of the three shades. It is such a pretty pink, very shimmery and shiny without being too over the top or too Barbie Doll pink.

All three shades are gorgeous and right on trend for spring. This set gets a huge thumbs up – Pretty Pinks is a pretty good deal that shouldn’t be missed!  – Lisa

Top Ten Tuesday – time for Red Lips

top ten tuesday

It’s said that there’s a red lipstick that’s made for everyone. Some of us rock red lips, some of us fear red lips, but we can’t deny that the color red is a striking color that will get attention. I’ve gone through the archives of Beauty Info Zone and found 10 red lipsticks and glosses that I think are gorgeous. You’ll notice that most of my choices are cool toned and some are reds that verge on the edge of pink. That’s my comfort zone even though you won’t find me wearing red lips that often. I hope you can find a red that you like out of my choices for Top Ten Tuesday. — Marcia

These are not in any particular order, I’m describing them clockwise from the upper left corner.

1. Makeup Geek Lipstick in Fearless – This particular lipstick was part of a set that’s no longer on the Makeup Geek site although the shade Captivating is one that is close yet a little more orange. Makeup Geek prices her products so competitively that you can’t help but be attracted to this cruelty free independent brand.

2. Starlooks Lipstick in Masquerade – Masquerade was part of a Starbox subscription and it surprised me to no end. I never thought that I’d be able to pull off this red shade yet it turned out to be a favorite. This might have been exclusive to that month’s box but take a look at Angelina from Starlooks if you want a gorgeous red.

3. Gleam Lip Radiance (by Melanie Mills) in Unstoppable – Currently Unstoppable is my favorite red lip. It’s described on their site as a coral red but it’s a true red on me. It’s an opaque gloss that isn’t sticky on my lips.

4. Senna Maraschino Lip Lacquer – This is a stunning color that Senna brought out this past winter. It’s a cherry red with some golden shimmer. It’s a bold color but it’s so beautiful that I don’t care that it takes me out of my comfort zone.

5. IT Cosmetics Vitality Lip Butter in Darling – I’m cheating here since Darling is going to look pink on a lot of people but on me it looks red. A pinky red but red. If you want sheer lipsticks that are incredibly hydrating and have anti-aging properties then the Vitality Lip Flush Butters are for you. They come in 3 shades and all are great.

6. Frankie Rose Cosmetics Sangria Gloss – As soon as I saw Lisa’s review on Frankie Rose my eyes instantly went to Sangria Gloss. It’s more of a liquid lipstick in feel and it has a little shimmer to give it some fullness. This shade makes me want to look good in red lips.

7. Face Stockholm Lipstick in Summer – I can’t rave enough about the Face Stockholm brand and their lipsticks are in those raves. Summer is a berry pink that falls in the red range to me. It’s beautifully pigmented and a stunner.

8. Lipstick Queen Medieval – Lipstick Queen was practically put on the map with Medieval. It was one of Poppy King’s original lipsticks and it is as beautiful today as when she first created it. If you want to go a little lighter you could try Jean Queen as it has more pink to it.

9. Lipstick Queen Metal Wine – The Metal lipsticks are the newest lipstick launch from Lipstick Queen. I haven’t seen Metal Red though it is probably stunning if Metal Wine is any indication of the beauty of this new line of lipsticks. Metal Wine is described as a deep burgundy and Metal Red as a Metallic Pillarbox Red.

10. Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge Lip Color in Iconic Red – Well the name tells you instantly what to expect. Make Up For Ever has a beautiful line of long lasting lip colors and the star for many is Iconic Red. On one side of the tube is the color while the other side has a gloss. Lisa reviewed this and called it a true cherry red. It’s a true face brightener.

Are any of these reds in your favorite list? What IS your favorite red lip? Now go enjoy the picks of the other bloggers. I think this is going to be a fun Top Ten set! — Marcia

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.

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!

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.
