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!

For a convenient way to touch up discoloration, blemishes and under eye circles, nothing beats Bobbi's new Face Touch Up Stick! This concealer is in a small twist up stick which I would apply directly if I was on the go, or with the touch up brush by Bobbi Brown. The stick offers medium coverage and the texture is extremely creamy and hydrating. I used this in the Honey shade and it was a perfect match. It was easy to blend and had great lasting power. If I was able to apply power to set, I got great coverage throughout the day. On the go without powder, I certainly got staying power for 4-5 hours. There was no slipping, flaking or melting. This is the perfect product to use for those of you that just have small spot coverage needs for general daily use. Perfect for travel and throwing into your bag because of the size. I love it and will always have one of these with me.

I have combination skin which gets very oily and shiny in my T-zone area. I judge how well a powder works for me based on how this area looks about mid day after applying first thing in the AM, and then how much more I need to get me through the end of the day, in addition to how it makes my skin look and how it feels on my skin. With this powder I was very impressed with not only how well it kept the shine down, but how nice and finished my face looked, whether I applied foundation/tinted moisturizer first or not. On most days after using this powder, by the afternoon I just needed a small reapplication, which took me through the end of the work day. The color of the powder itself is white in the case, but translucent on the skin. This was great because it was "goof proof" to get a flattering match to my skin tone*. There is no real fragrance to speak of and it has a nice texture. The powder was smooth going on the brush and silky on my skin. The finished look was matte, but with a nice brightening effect, so that it did not look like a mask. It was also easy to take along in my day or evening bag with the retractable kabuki brush and the magnetic closure on the powder case. Cynde has a great product here! *Note: You must use the powder according to these instructions: sweep the brush onto the powder, then sweep on the back of the hand to diffuse the particles further. Then apply to the t-zone first sweeping outwards to the rest of the face. If you apply the powder straight from the brush on to the face you will get a whitesh cast on your face which will also be prominent if you have darker brown skin.

Many cosmetic lines are featuring more and more beautiful works of art within the actual makeup palette, and this one is truly a stand out creation. This is part of the Lancôme Maharani Jewels Collection 2008. The image etched into the powder is a beautiful elephant, as an ode to India’s culture. The brilliance is that each of the 3 colors in the actual elephant is a beautiful shade that is part of the bronzer. There’s a light pink, deep shimmery gold and deep reddish/orange. The elephant itself is actually “raised” a bit for a nice 3 dimensional effect. The outer compact is a nice Tortoiseshell-brown which works nicely with the theme for this collection. I used my bronzer brush to swirl all the colors together and just loved the flattering, healthy glow effect it gave me (swatch above gives an idea of what it looks like together). This bronzer had just the right amount of shimmer, the color had very good staying power and best of all, this will work with all skin tones since the three shades work to pick up and enhance all undertones. For those women who have very dark brown complexions, this can serve as a very nice highlighter on brow bones and cheek bones used in conjunction with your blush. This just made me smile every time I wore it. Truly a treasure and will also be a collectors item for sure.

This cute little blue sponge is a jack of all trades. The sponge is firm upon taking it out of the clear plastic case, so the first thing I did was to the sponge and run it under water, getting it completely wet. It doubled in size and then had soft, pillow-like appearance. Next, I squeezed the sponge out very well so that it was slightly damp. Then I swiped it across my cream foundation and dabbed it first in the mid section of my face near my nose, sweeping it outward towards the edges of my face (cheek, forehead, and chin). Within a minute or two the foundation was dry and the coverage was fantastic. With the sponge I was able to get to all the corners of my eyes and nose. The top of the sponge is narrower and perfect for dabbing around the corners of the nose, or on blemishes, while the bottom, wider part is what I used to actually apply my foundation on the majority of my face. With the sponge, my foundation looked natural, yet had a very nice med/sheer coverage with a tad bit of a dewy appearance. For my concealer, I dabbed a bit directly under my eye with my concealer brush and then used the top narrow part of the sponge to tap into my skin until it blended seamlessly. With cream blush, I found the best way to use it was by tapping the bottom half lightly on the blush and then applying in a circular motion on my cheeks. Beautiful! This is a great little makeup tool that I’ll always have in my kit. Note: Here is a rinsing tip. Try rinsing the sponge after use by letting as much of the makeup wash off as possible with plain water. Then apply a small dab of a simple gel cleanser to clean any remaining makeup from the sponge. It doesn’t come with a storage case, per say, but you can try setting it atop the actual clear case that the sponge comes in to dry.

If you have drier skin like me, and are looking for a great primer that also has sun protection, then this is a great choice. I found that a little of the medium/thick-weight cream went a long way to cover my face in the morning before applying my makeup. It went on smoothly and sank in fairly quickly. I found it very moisturizing and it also did not give my skin a grayish cast, despite the sunscreen ingredients. Throughout the day it did a very effective job of keeping my makeup in place (no running, streaking or dry patches), even on hot/humid days and several business trips via plane. This is a very nice little skin luxury from the master NARS! Note: This formula will work best on drier/combination skin as it may be too heavy for oily skin.

If you are looking for a bold, striking lip that’s not too dramatic or showy then this is the color! The formula itself is very pigmented (no sheerness here) with a soft satiny shine, without shimmer. The texture was smooth, and was very moisturizing for my dry lips. This is a long lasting formula, so the lasting power was fantastic and also worked well in humid weather for me. It is non-scented. This color is a dynamic medium-toned pink that will work well with many skin tones, best up to a Gabrielle Union shade. The packaging, as with all of the Dior products, is exquisite, glamorous and yet still simple. It’s the classic deep blue Dior’s cased with a touch of silver. This is simply a great lipstick that looked gorgeous on me!

It goes without saying that the design of this eye palette, like many of the YSL palettes, is exquisite, unique and truly beautiful. But it doesn’t just stop there -- the colors themselves are wonderful and perfect for summer. There are 4 colors in the palette which were inspired by various African terrains. There is a deep chocolate brown (with a touch of eggplant), a true orange (with a touch of rust), a medium creamy yellow shade and a beige shadow. The brown and orange colors are bold, but were buildable if I wanted a more dramatic look. None of the colors has shimmer, they were silky and easy to blend and were a pleasure to play with and combine. The lasting power of the shadows was also good. I didn’t think I would gravitate towards the orange shade as much as I did. The orange was very flattering and not shocking or over the top in any way. I loved combining the orange all over the lid in a light layer with the chocolate in the crease and as an eyeliner on its own or over my eyeliner pencil. I also liked using the yellow and beige for a softer look. These shades are varied enough with darks, brights and neutrals that it will work with all skin tones as well. There is a lot of shadow in the pan and each is very pigmented. This combined with the beautiful limited edition palette design makes it definitely worth the price.

It didn’t make my skin dry or tight, and I had no breakouts or irritation. I happen to really like milky cleansers, and this CARE cleansing milk was mild, and yet still really effective. I used with either a cotton pad and then rinsed, or mixed it with water, and had great results. Each and every time it left my skin soft and supple and didn’t leave any residue. This cleanser also removed my makeup and removed my makeup perfectly without stinging my eyes. I also happen to love the CARE packaging – it’s understated, functional, and beautiful.

Now that I’ve tried this I can never go back. The unique 4 sided comb individually coated every single one of my lashes. It made them super long and defined. I usually look for length in my mascara, but this also thickened in addition to lengthening. The overall effects of this mascara are among the best that I have ever seen. I loved that I didn’t need lots of coats to build up the effect; my lashes looked magnificent after just one coat. Even better, my lashes also felt light and soft. The staying power was great and it did not flake or smudge at all! The tube design is as sleek and beautiful as one would expect from an Armani product as well.

This was a nice chance of pace – and with a great impact too! I’ve never used Givenchy mascara before, and I was very impressed not only but the packaging and luxury of this product, but also the performance. It gave me really intense lashes that were just as the color describes, black, but with a very nice tinge of deep purple, which I loved, especially for evening looks (It also photographs really well!). I had volume, (most importantly) length and no smudges, flaking or smearing. Two coats were really all that was needed (as a matter of fact, I only got clumping when I tried to layer it on more than this). This is a lovely mascara and I look forward to exploring more of Givenchy!

Sunny Yellow is part of their Spring ‘08 Color Fizz line. In the compact (very sleek, modern and I loved the mirror inside) it appeared to be as sunny a yellow as the name would suggest. When I applied the color on my lid, I found it very pigmented, smooth and very blendable. It's a great true warm sunny yellow color that really brightened my whole face. On me it showed up as a true yellow on me, but with a touch on gold. I also found that it worked well layered with bronzes and pretty caramel shades to create a soft, pretty look. I was very impressed with the staying power of this shadow, which was amazing. This can be applied lighter for a day time look that is quite appropriate for a work setting or more intensely for a more dramatic look in the evening. I also found that this color looked best with a dark brown or brown eyeliner to soften the yellow effect a bit. This color will work best on warmer complexions and up to a Gabrielle Union shade.

I think this may be one of the prettiest shades in the whole Fafi collection as a matter of fact. Hipness gave me a natural, coral/peachy-pink glow (no shimmer) on me. It's very pigmented, so all I needed was a light swipe of the blush (with my mac 129 brush) to give me a beautiful glow. This is truly a beautiful blush with a nice, silky texture, making it very blendable. Although it is listed as a frost, I didn’t see any shimmer on my skin (but it does appear there is a small amount in the pan). What I loved about this shade is that it really brightened up my face without calling attention to the fact that I was wearing blush. This will work best up to an Oprah shade. Since this is limited edition, you may want to double up on this one!
