I got Tyra mail! Tyra Beauty Light in a Stick and GET LIPPY Lip Color + Lip Liner Set

Tyra Beauty Tyra Beauty impressed me with the B.I.G. Lash Extension System that I reviewed HERE. Today I am happy to tell you about a few Tyra Beauty products that will set off those gorgeous lashes – Light in a Stick Highlighter ($25) and the Get Lippy Set ($38).                                 samples

Tyra Beauty Light in a StickLight In A Stick is a creamy highlighter that is applied right from the stick. There are two shades available: SINsational City, a pearlescent champagne, and Glow With The Flow, a golden bronze radiance. I tested Glow With the Flow.

What a pretty highlighter! I like the stick and the shape of the rounded end, although I am certain that it will eventually become flat. It goes on super smooth thanks to the ‘TY-Glide Technology’. What is that, you ask?

TY-Glide Technology features a polymeric structure, which releases a uniform ratio of micronized pigments infused with fine oils, which provide a luxurious glide onto the skin, leaving the perfect amount of blendable color and the appearance of a flawless face.

At first, Glow With the Flow looks pretty intense, but it sheers out into a nice glow. I like to use this on my cheekbones and straight down the bridge of my nose, along with darker shading on the sides of my bridge. This is also beautiful on top of lipstick, especially the shades I got in my Get Lippy Set.

Tyra Beauty Get Lippy SetThe Get Lippy Set ($38) includes a coordinating mechanical lip liner, MakeOUT Line, and a Smooch as Silk Lipstick. MakeOUT Line keeps lip color from feathering and is waterproof. The Smooch As Silk lip color has a satin finish, and it is definitely long wearing. Once blotted, it doesn’t transfer and feels very comfortable on.

The color combos available include Hi, Felicia + Hey Girl, HEY, a vivid pink duo; This Ain’t Palm Beach + Plastic Flamingos, a pink coral duo; Retire Your Husband + LOMO, a smoky mauve duo; and Tyra’s Favorite Red + Runway Red, a true red duo.

Hmmm…maybe it’s my particular skin chemistry, but Runway Red and Tyra’s Favorite Red aren’t very red on me. They are more of a deep reddish pink. Regardless, I love the color, especially with the Light in a Stick in Glow With the Flow layered on the center of my lips.

I got Tyra mail! B.I.G. Lashes Silk Extension System

about_bgI have admired Tyra Banks forever and of course watched every season of America’s Next Top Model. I was sooo excited to try her cosmetics line, which is all about beauty (something I strive for), business (cause women are a force to contend with), and badassery (because who doesn’t want to be BAD ASS??).                                                                                                                         pr sample

Tyra Beauty BIG Lashes System

My first review is for Tyra’s B.I.G. Lashes Silk Extension System ($50). Yup, it’s easy now to smize with this lash thickening and extending system. I’ve tried silk extensions before, and while they gave me better lashes, they also gave me some issues with my contact lenses, so I was hoping Tyra’s would be more eyeball friendly.

B.I.G. Lashes Silk Extension System

B.I.G. stands for Beyond Insanely Ginormous. This two-part system includes B.I.G. Lashes Extending Mascara and B.I.G. Lashes Silk Extensions. First, you apply the Silk Extensions from mid-lash upward. This is so important…the silk fibers lengthen lashes, but by avoiding the root of the lashes, silk fibers don’t into the eyes.

After the first silk fiber application, you apply the Extending Mascara from root to ends. This mascara has a thin brush, and the formula thickens and separates lashes. Follow with the Silk Extensions again from mid-lash to top, and then one more coat of the Extending Mascara. Oh yes, lashes are super long, super thick, and just plain super. Plus, NO smudging!!

Tyra Beauty BIG Lashes

B.I.G. Lashes Silk Extensions is an improvement on the silk extensions of old because it has a conditioning primer than fuses the silk fibers to lashes, so there isn’t that fallout. It also doesn’t dry out lashes – in fact, it has conditioning ingredients that improve lash health.

I am definitely impressed with the Tyra Beauty Big Lash Silk Extension System.  If you want big, thick, fat lashes that are about as long as you can get them, be sure to try this out.  – Lisa
