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!

I know I like the taste of cucumbers, but some of the cucumber scented beauty products that I've smelled over the years just didn't capture that essence for me, so I put the concept of cucumber fragrances in the back of my mind. That is until now. I recently had the opportunity to try the limited edition Marc Jacobs Splash - Cucumber . I was so amazed at how fresh, clean and crisp it smelled - and actually reminded me of how I feel when I eat cucumbers (it's not an exact copy - but rather a really smart and modern scent influenced by the essence of Cucumber). The top notes are very light and refreshing - a watery cucumber and linden flower are what jumped out on my skin first. I got grassy notes as well which were subtle and blended well with the cucumber and flower notes. Perfect for warm spring and summer days. The dry down creates a very pretty, light woodiness which was not powdery or overbearing. It was uplifting and yet comforting at the same time. Since it's splash, this is not a very long lasting scent, but I found that it was great to apply in the morning, the afternoon for a pick up if I was able, and at the end of the day. It's so delightful I loved applying it anyway! If you are looking for something refreshing that is not a citrus or a fruity floral this is perfect. This can be worn on all occasions and will be just the scent you want when it gets super hot this summer and your sweeter, heavier perfumes get stifling. Another plus - the bottle is large enough that you can use it daily and really have it around for a long time. I used it 2-3 times a day for weeks and still have a large amount left in the bottle. You can also use this during the day by decanting some from the large bottle into an atomizer. Since this is a limited edition, I suggest getting a bottle (or two) for the soon-to-be-here warmer days ahead or for your tropical get aways!

Ah, sunscreen, so many choices…and so little time. For my face, I am very finicky about the texture, the smell, the staying power and also the convenience level of the packaging (must be travel/gym ready). This new Clarins sunscreen was a relief in a sea of sunscreen I have been testing for the last month or so. I love the little cylinder tube which is super portable. The formula itself is very lightweight and on the thin side, but so concentrated I didn’t need much to cover my face (so it is very long lasting). There is a light fragrance, which dissipated quickly. The lotion glided on my skin without a trace of stickiness, white cast, or oil. The finish was matte. I found that it was light enough to be layered over my favorite serum and under my liquid bronzer or tinted moisturizer that I tend to favor in the summer months. As a matter of fact, this is actually the perfect skin primer before makeup application. The lasting power was fantastic on days I was working, running around outside or actually sunning at the beach. I had no breakouts or irritation from the product and it didn’t run or melt on my skin. It also left my skin soft and moisturized without feeling oily, so on the weekends I would just wear this with a little mascara and lip color and I was good to go! This is a non-chemical sunscreen which many of you will also appreciate. It’s made from 100% minerals. Yes, this is another product that is indeed worth every penny and I will be stockpiling! Note: As an added bonus if you are like me and always around computer screens, Clarins has added protection against electromagnetic waves in this formula.

  • this stuff works great. it doesn't over dry my skin but still proves to be very effective in getting rid of the problem blemishes

From the packaging to the performance, Clarins really thought this product through. Each of the 8 masks is in a small tube and the white cream is lightweight, silky and creamy to the touch. It is so concentrated that I easily got 3 uses out of each tube, (which is also ideal for travel) which covered my face/neck in a light layer. I left the mask on about 10 minutes and from my first use was amazing at how much my face simply glowed! After rinsing, my skin was smooth, my pores were diminished considerably, and I just looked so energized and fresh. I continued to use the mask about 2x week along with the Clarins Bright Plus HP Brightening Peel 4.2 oz and could not have been happier with the results. My skin toned was completely evened out (darker spots were significantly lighter). I had no irritation or break outs and my skin had a rosy glow for a day or two following each mask application. If you are looking for an effective mask that does more than just relax & moisturize, then this is a must have product.

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.

I used this serum 2x day after cleansing. The serum is in a pump bottle, which makes it very hygienic, and I noted that a slight push of the top of the pump was all that was needed to cover my entire face. The texture felt slightly gelatinous and sticky on my fingers, but once I applied it to my face; I found that it soaked into my skin quickly and easily. My skin at once looked smooth, felt hydrated and my pores were reduced in the t-zone as well. This was the perfect start to applying my makeup, and became a great primer for me. The fragrance is also really pretty (a sweet ylang ylang fragrance), and dissipated after a few minutes. After several weeks of use, my skin really did have a brighter and more even toned appearance; my fine lines were softened, my skin never felt dry and my makeup always stayed looking fresh.

They really warm up my skin and enhance my tan, giving me glow that I love. I have not used many liquid bronzers, but I was intrigued that this formula was not only firming but suitable for face and body. I think this is a great bronzer and perfect for 2-in-1 double duty, especially for travel. The bronzer is a lightweight, thin, silky liquid that appears muted copper out of the bottle. Two pumps were all that was needed to cover my face. It glided on my skin and dried fairly quickly. The formula really evened out my skin tone and gave me a fantastic glow. It made my skin a shade deeper brown with copper undertones. It does have a touch of orange in it as well, which was flattering on my skintone. There is no shimmer, so it worked well with my powder blushes and bronzers to not provide overkill. It also stayed put and didn’t rub off during the day. It did not break me out or clog my pores and it hydrated my skin in the right places without feeling or looking greasy. On my body I really liked using it on my décolletage and my legs at night when I wore a dress and heels. I loved the feeling of the firming elements in the bronzer on my body especially, (after using it daily for a few weeks on my legs I did indeed see an improvement in the overall look of my legs). This will work best (and look the most natural) on shades in the Lucy Liu to Eva Mendes range by mixing a dime sized amount of the bronzer with a little moisturizer for the face. On darker shades and brown skin tones this is not needed. Note: Remember to wash hands after applying!

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!

Every time I wore this, someone asks, "What color is that!" It’s clear polish packed with a ton of pale pink micro glitter. I love the glitzy pink of this nail polish! It is definitely a party look. To get the full effect, you really need more than one coat. When I applied two coats it made my nails look like sparkling jewels. Note: I found that a good topcoat kept it chip free for weeks on my toes, and about a week or so on my fingers. It’s absolutely with the price for such a pretty, unique color, and a very large bottle (mine lasted forever using it regularly). This also looked amazing on my toes. This will work on all skin tones and one coat also makes a nice twist on the French manicure nail too! Editor’s Note: Make sure you apply a basecoat on first. It makes it much easier to remove it.

The texture of the cleanser is a mid-weight gel and it took off every bit of oil, makeup and debris from my face. It made my skin look and feel clean afterwards. It did not feel harsh or irritating and rinsed off very well. Anyone with oilier skin looking for an effective, gentle cleanser this is the one – and the fact that it’s organic is fantastic! This cleanser also kept my acne at bay! After using this for several weeks, I noticed a significant difference in the amount of flare ups that occurred.

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.

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!

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.

I am one of these women who is not great at home maintenance for many beauty services (manicures and brow shaping are the two that I always need to go to a professional for!). When I saw how cute and compact this box was, I figured this could possibly improve the way I maintain my brows in between appointments. Well, I loved it! It was so easy to use, with small (about 2”in long), yet still effective tools and products that really made my brows look polished enough that several people commented on how great my brows looked --even when I was still a few days overdue for a shaping! The box contains a wax (in an innovative retractable mini shelf on the bottom of the box that opens with a soft touch of a finger), which helped hold my brows in place without looking greasy. On the top shelf the box contains 2 shades of powder, tweezers and a mini brush for the powder. Brown Sugar’s powders are a dark chocolate brown with a bit of red, and a lighter beige/taupe shade (which you can mix to create a lighter brown if needed). The brow powder is very pigmented, very fine, and applied smoothly. It disappeared right into my brows. Using the mini brush and powder, I filled in the ends of my brows, and which still looked very natural, yet glam. This really enhanced my overall look, especially on those mornings when I didn’t have a lot of time to apply much makeup. While it’s amazing to have such tiny tweezers included (and they did a nice job), some of you may prefer to use these just for traveling and continue with your normal-sized tweezer at home for increased control. This brow box is such a special little treat, but also an important part of my beauty arsenal now!

I think this is one the best hand creams I've ever tried. To put it to the test, I applied right before my latest business trip to see how it would work with the airplane air that keeps my hands forever dry. The cream is medium weight and lightly scented (I love this scent and but never could quite put my hands on what it was, -- nevertheless, it always puts a smile on my face). I applied a layer of the cream on both hands and let it sink in, which only took a few moments. My skin instantly felt hydrated and soft, but I knew the true test was what my hands would look like by the end of the trip. Midway through the flight my hands were still as soft as satin and even my nail beds/cuticles were soft. I was very impressed when I left the plane with my hands still looking and feeling great. I continued using the cream and was happy each and every time with how long my skin was moisturized and how great my hands looked with continued use.

It’s been a long time since I’ve fallen in love with a shampoo, but that time has come. This cleanser/shampoo on its own, even before applying conditioner, left my hair super moisturized -- the results were heavenly! My hair has never been so silky, smooth and manageable. I immediately noticed that this is a low lathering shampoo. Some people may need to get used to this, but my hair was definitely clean after washing, so the suds don’t make the difference! I used once a week and I got fantastic results whether I air dried or blow dried. My ends, which are usually still a bit dry after rinsing shampoo out, were nice a smooth. It should also be noted that it is a fairly heavily perfumed product, but it’s not cloying. This is worth every penny for those of you looking for a fantastic (and natural!) hair cleanser. This also doubles as a moisturizing body cleanser as well

This lip treatment is incredibly yummy, and yes does taste like lemon drop cookies. I found that this is best for morning use as a base for lip color to keep lips hydrated (those of you with very dry lips will need to apply to more frequently however—which is not necessarily a bad thing since it’s so heavenly tasting!). In addition it has a neat metal shape(it’s a bit hefty in weight) and that means it was easy to find in my bag. I love that the heavy duty twist on cap prevents debris or dust from collecting around the cap. It coated my lips with a protective layer that made them perfectly soft AND it has the SPF, which is a must! This is a lip moisturizer for when you want to treat yourself and smile every time you take it out of your bag. Note: For a great weekly lip treatment I would exfoliate with a washcloth and then apply a thick layer of the treatment before bed for super soft and luscious lips in the AM!
