I am all about L’OREAL’s Infallible products. They just stay like no other so when I saw that they now have Infallible Eye Shadows ($7.99 @ drugstore.com) in an array of colors, I jumped to try them. I mean, isn’t that what makeup is all about? Wearable colors that stay put? Anyway, the first one I laid eyes on was 88 Midnight Blue and I’m dedicating one whole feature to it as it’s love.
I’m a sucker for anything “As Seen on TV,” as I’ve mentioned here before and I think it’s mostly the notion of we-ve-found-a-better-way-to-do-it of it all. And this next one totally falls into that category. It’s called ROOTS ONLY and is for applying at-home hair color to your, well, roots only.
I am a sucker for these shadow liners mostly because they are so easy to use and great for when you are in a rush. The latest ones are from the MALLY BEAUTY line. Evercolor Shadow Sticks come in 17 different colors and are really smooth going on and quite pigmented.
CHANEL's Rough Coco Hydrating Lip Crème in 40 Charme is a soft blue pink that is on the sheer side, so much so that I would call this a lip tint.
Welcome to the CHANEL's Spring 2012 Makeup Collection. So how does the one-and-only see the season? Let’s look through their eyes with a few products in the line today and start with the eyes.
I’ve always been a big fan of the LALICIOUS line. They just put out great quality body products where I never have to be afraid of the ingredients. They just added a new scent called Sugar Reef this month and I tried two of them. So did they live up to my expectations?
URBAN DECAY added some more shades of those hot guy lip glosses to the line. Have you seen these yet? Each cap has uses a holographic design effect so depending on how you move it, you either get him clothed or in his skivvies!
What do you think when a renowned makeup artist puts out a line? Does it make you more interested in the line or does it even matter? The latest line I’ve come across is IQ BEAUTY from internationally known makeup artist Fredericke Grillitz. Yes, the MUA has seen it all and will usually put out a line or collection of items where he/she has seen a gap in the industry. But do they always transfer to the everyday person’s use? Sometimes I say yes but sometimes no and only a professional will be to make use of a product.
With that said, I was able to give the Sheer Activity Base ($65/large size (looks to be about 2oz), $45/travel) a whirl and it seems to be kind of like a souped up tinted moisturizer. It's sheer like a tinted and the souped up part comes in as it has a touch of luminosity in it but not so much that you will look odd if you put it all over the face. It comes in one shade and contains vitamins A, C and E and even a SPF15. This is totally made for anyone to use.
If you do want more glow in specific places, then you should add a couple of dabs of the Sheer Activity Glow over the above base.
The items are a little on the expensive side but after trying these two, I’m curious about the others. Check out iqbeauty.com for more info.
