Becca Compact Concealer

Becca Compact Concealer

I was completely transformed by this one little product from Becca. Treacle’s slightly yellow/orange undertone really took out the bluish/green dark circles under my eye and lifted the entire area. It comes in a compact and contains two separate concealers; one for heavier coverage and one for medium coverage. It is definitely one of the better concealers I've tried; it covers beautifully and stays on all day long. It does not smear or settle into fine lines. It felt like a dry thick cream, but I used it under my eyes and was amazed at the way it blended and did not settle into any lines. Please note that because the texture of this product is on the dry side it is best to blend with a concealer brush. Using a dab of eye cream first gave me the best results for covering my under eye circles. In general I found blending the two sides worked better for me, but for many of you the full coverage will be best for blemishes and other discolorations and the medium for under eye circles. It also did a great job covering a few brown spots on my cheeks and chin. It also provided a fantastic base for my eye make up when I used on my eye lid. The color match was excellent and this brand has made a great range of shades with subtle differences to let all women, even those of you with very dark brown skin get the perfect one. This one concealer fulfils all my needs so perfectly!

The Noire Palette is a lovely palette for a “cool face”, featuring periwinkle blue shadow, pearly pink lavender eye shadow and a cool pink blush. The palette itself has a lovely, unusual design of silver and white flowers and vines with a black background. The black felt on the white and silver is a nice touch The magnetized palette opens up to 3 eye shadows and one blush. No mirror included in the palette. The pans can be taken out and exchanged for the individual Stila eye shadow and blush pans. The top left eye shadow in the Noire Palette is a light pearly pink. I found this to be beautiful for highlighting. The top right eye shadow is a periwinkle blue, which I tended to blend with the bottom left eye shadow which is a sparkly black that was excellent for a smoky eye look. The blush in the bottom right spot is a bright pink. When I used the periwinkle I tended to layer this one more heavily as it is not as pigmented as the others. It read a little more blue/grey on my skin and was very pretty. I tended to use the glittery black quite a bit as both an eye shadow and it also made a nice, soft charcoal liner for a daytime appropriate but smoky look. The blush is actually the winner of the palette. It’s a bright but deep pink color. It looks a little bright in the pan but goes on really sheer, natural and flattering. It just looked like pretty flushed pink cheeks which really complimented my skin tone and not bright pink obvious blush. Because the blush is very pigmented I used it with a light hand. The cost is also a great deal as opposed to buying eye shadow and blush pans plus palette or compact costs. This palette will work best up to an Iman complexion.

The Cooling Eye Gel Illuminator is one of my favorite products from the LUCI collection. It’s a very light cream eye shadow that appears to be an opalescent pearl shade out of the tube, but as soon as it hit my skin it turned into the most beautiful combination or soft pink, peach and apricot, reflecting different colors wherever the light hit it. It was noticeable but definitely not too over the top or distracting. I loved the effect! I used it on my brow bone on top of my cheekbones and even experimented applying it on top of a neutral power shadow. It really brought out my features. It very creamy in consistency and does have a very brief, cooling effect which was pleasant. I also applied just a little with a small brush on the inner corners of my eyes to brighten my entire eye area (great after a late night!). Because this color reflects light off of the skin, this looks great on all skin tones as well! On some people they will see more pink, others more of a peach or even violet tone at times.

From the beautiful embellished flowers on a light luminescent pale pink background, to the shimmery gold case, this was a joy to look at and to use. I loved using is as an accent to my peach or coral toned blushes. The “pollen” center of the flower is a glittery hot pink (which actually goes on quite soft and complemented my skin tone nicely). I loved applying it on my cheek bones, and under the brow. When I wanted to use it as more of an actual cheek color, I swirled the pale and hot pink together with the soft brown to get a very flattering medium pink with subtle shimmer. This is very pretty for spring and will work as a shimmer accent for all skin tones, and has enough pigment to work as an actual blush up to about a Nia Long complexion.

I really loved this product (my first time using a liquid blush). This color appears bright pink (almost neon) in the tube, but it blended beautifully on my skin to a subtle rosy pink. This was just perfect for an everyday look, and gave me an incredible glow. The texture is simply divine. It only took a few small pumps of the liquid on each cheek and my fingers (or a small brush) to blend in and achieve a perfect look every time. This blush was very easy to blend onto my skin. The result was really polished and subtle. I also love that it gave me you a true glow, without being shimmery or looking greasy or shiny. The lasting power is also amazing. I was very surprised that this did not wear off quickly, since it is a liquid. This blush lasts as long if not longer than some of my favorite powder blushes! The product is also versatile. I also mixed a few drops with my liquid foundation and even my tinted moisturizer which gave me an incredible look as well. Using it this way gave my complexion a boost and made me look radiant overall (I choose to do this in the evening especially). Since it’s so pigmented and not much is needed to achieve a look, this will also last a very long time, which is another bonus! This is limited edition (spring 2008)…run don’t walk to get this one girls!” Note: If you have very oily skin, this should be used sparingly.

What an amazing concept that L’Oreal has crafted to perfection! I loved that these tubes include a little brush and case (which has a little “well” on the lower left hand side where you can mix the shade (with other cream shadows as well). I applied with the brush that came with it and they applied evenly & smoothly (for those of you who can’t give up your cream eye shadow brushes, yes this did also work well with mine, but you can’t beat the small compact one included for touchups and travel! Nervy is a cool frosty taupe that read a bit greyer on my skin. This cream shadow is slightly shimmery and deeply pigmented. I was impressed by the eye shadow not creasing after 10+ hrs of wear as well. It was truly amazing. The formula is virtually budge proof once applied (I swiped it on my hand to test the color and then tried to rinse it off. It actually took several washings with soap before it was gone). I also loved using this as a base for powder shadows (yes it also works well with the HIP powder shadows and the color truth eye liner ). All in all, this is a really pretty neutral color that will work with all skin tones and can be layered to make it a more dramatic color as well. A little dab (as small as a pen point actually) is more than enough to cover both eye lids. I found that I could also use my finders to blend it to really get a fine, detailed look as well. This is a truly innovative product and an amazing buy to boot!

If you are looking for a product to look great with no effort (that’s also great for your skin), then the new Triple Accent pencil is just what you need! This pencil has a side especially for lips & cheeks and another one for the eyes. I found that the lips side was super creamy, moisturizing and easy to blend – more adaptable than most multiples that I’ve tried. The staying power of the color on both my lips and cheeks was phenomenal! I would apply on the weekends in the early morning and late at night the color was still there, looking fresh and vibrant! The Heather side for lips and cheeks is a very flattering reddish-wine shade, great for fall but certainly adaptable year round. The Taupe eye side was also impressive! The pretty silvery based-taupe with shimmer (not sparkle) made a good base for powder shadow when I had a little extra time, or more often than not, by itself, it's a silvery taupe. This side can also be used as a highlighter on the cheekbones, which is how I applied it for evenings out occasionally. I also loved the convenience of throwing this in my purse and having one product for every touch ups if I needed it! This is also a must have for travel to help keep the cosmetic bag light. This is one of the darkest colors in all the pencils, and will work very well up to a Venus Williams shade. Editor’s Note: This product is made with FSC-certified wood and rich plant ingredients. It combines plant emollients and a blend of organically grown berry anti-oxidants.

This little lip color pen really does have it all -- it's a gorgeous, neutral pink with a hint of peach, milky and pigmented but very wearable. Petit Four is a pink leaning toward rose with a teensy bit of peach--no shimmer, no drama, but lovely. The texture is wonderful, it lasts amazingly long and it's pigmented, which was great when I was looking for a moisturizing lip color that I could actually see, and not just over lip liner. I can actually wear this without lip liner and it's very well defined. For those of you who may not be the biggest fans of the twist and polish lip pens (sometimes getting the exact amount of clicks to dispense the perfect amount of lip color can be a challenge), this CHANEL version the best of I've tried. This lip pen is also a real hybrid of creamy lipstick/gloss formula which was just faintly sticky, and had very comfortable wear (4+ hours) and great balance of subdued shine and full pigment. I've received several compliments since wearing this shade. This is simply a beautiful product to treat yourself to. This color will work best up to a Queen Latifiah shade.
