What I'm Liking Right ... Now!

What-I'm-Using-Right-...-Now-Lorac-Sum-Bum-Escada-Dolce-&-Gabbana-Venus-Snap-Razor
LORAC Lip Luxe 8 Hour Lip Color
in Orchid ($16 @ loraccosmetics.com) – this color is so right now! It’s not the typical red I tend to gravitate towards and wow, does it last a long time on my lips. And it’s infused with good stuff like Acai Berry, Pomegranate, Grape Seed and vitamins C & E, so glad to have this on my lips for hours.

ESCADA Born in Paradise EDT ($45/1oz, $45/1.6oz, $75/3.3oz @ sephora.com) – I think half the country has been praying for spring and this new scent from Escada just brings my nose to it full throttle! The notes are sweet and springy – green apple, guava, watermelon, pineapple, coconut milk, jasmine tea, all on a base of sandalwood, cedarwood and musk.

SUM BUM Continuous Spray Sunscreen ($15.99/6oz @ trustthebum.com) – every season it’s a good idea to update your sunscreen and this season I’m trusting the Bum!  Available in SPF 15, SPF 30, SPF 50 and SPF 70, I think one of these will have you cover (no pun intended) and since the continuous spray is widely available, is there any other way to go?

DOLCE & GABBANA The Brow Liner - Shaping Eyebrow Pencil ($45 @ saksfifthavenue.com) – when I first saw under the cap, it instantly reminded me of this one with its teardrop shape. Though I’m a fan of a harder formula like this one, I wouldn’t say this one is soft by any means, and, dare I say, I think that it lasts longer on my brows than my Holy Grail one. Yikes! Available in 4 shades,

GILLETTE Venus Snap Razor ($12.99 @ drugstore.com) – yup it’s cute (so tiny and colorful), yup it’s compact (fits in the palm of your hand), and yup it has 5 blades. Weren’t we up to 4 last check? So now here’s 5! And it’s surprisingly easy to wield in the shower and the handy blue case makes it a travel no brainer.

Review+Swatches - Cailyn Gelux Eyebrow

Seems like a lot of beauty buffs are quite obsessed with Anastasia’s DipBrow and though I have not tried it, I came across one that I think works much the same way – adds color and holds hairs in place, and they claim it will even hold up while swimming in a pool or the beach! It’s CAILYN Gelux Eyebrow and they pack some technology into the formula with what they call 3D Smart Film Former. It’s able to stabilize the pigment powders so they don’t fade over time and once this sets, it’s set for hours.

Review+Swatches - Marc Jacobs Beauty Lovemarc & Style Eye-Con No. 3 Plush Eyeshadow

MARC JACOBS just released a 16-piece line makeup called Marc Jacobs Beauty through Sephora a few weeks ago and the buzz is deafening! I got my paws on two of the products, the Style Eye-Con No. 3 – Plush Shadow in #106 The Rebel ($42) and the Lovemarc – Lip Gel in #128 Seduce Me ($30). I love the black lacquer of the packaging and colors look great but looks can be deceiving sometimes, so let’s take a closer look after the pics!

Review+Swatches - NARS Brow Perfector and Brow Gel

NARS just came out with some items just for brows, my favorite part to gussy up! As they say, brows really do shape the face so even if you are in a hurry, make sure you pay attention to your brows and give them a once over before heading out for the day. 

NARS-Brow-Perfector-&-Brow-
Brow Perfector ($22) – 4 shades – one of the main reasons this one is my favorite brown pencil is that is doesn’t let me overdue it because the color is quite hard, not soft like most. I mean, it shouldn't be an eyeliner, right? So that is my main test with any brow color. And this one is only a tad softer than my Hall of Fame version so it’s a keeper.

And the color, Kalamata, could fit those with dark blonde to light blonde hair color. Loving this brown pencil, NARS, so thanks!

Brow Gel ($22) – it is so important to set your brows once you are done sculpting with color. Especially if you have unruly ones like I do (thanks Pops).

Get Your Brows in Shape with Anastasia Brow Pro Palette

Anastasia-Beverly-Hills-Brow-Pro-PaletteLike this concealer, I love having multiple shade options when it comes to enhancing/masking features on my face. In this case it’s the brows and matching the color to your own brow color is important. Even though the ANASTASIA line has branch out a bit, she still keeps it real in putting out products for the one feature that made her famous, brows. This Brow Pro Palette contains 6 shades of her Brow Powder Duos, her Cream Brow Was and Concealer to help you get the most sculpted brows on the block.

I think this book fulfills every skin tone out there, so consider this a well worth investment. $55 @ anastasia.net.

Make Up For Ever Aqua Brow

Make-Up-For-Ever-Aqua-BrowHave you ever been scared of a beauty product? I mean, you look at it and have no idea how to use it. That’s what happened when I looked at MAKE UP FOR EVER’s Aqua Brow. I must have picked it up and looked at it about a dozen times before actually trying it out. What’s been wrong with me??! I guess I just wasn’t ready to experience this product.

Anyway, this Aqua Brow is a highly pigmented liquid that is for filling in areas of the brow and also to help lengthen and define them. I love how long it lasts and I’m able to get a more realistic look using this with a slanted small brush than with a pencil.

Available in Light Blonde, Blonde and Ash. I’m a dark brown and I’m using the Blonde and it works perfectly as I don’t want brows that are too dark.

$20 @ sephora.com.

Billion Dollar Brows The Brow Buddy Tool

Eyebrows are becoming scientific! Most lines have an eyebrow pencil in their line and most of them look and have the performance of an eyeliner, except for my beloved, but never have I seen a mechanism like this for the average consumer.

I used to have my brows waxed and shaped every 2 ½ to 3 weeks but my girl kept moving further and further up the 101 highway so a 30 to 45 minute drive was quickly just not convenient. Sadness. So now, I go to see a professional brow groomer to have them shaped every few months and then maintain them myself in the meantime.

Billion-Dollar-Brows-The-Brow-Buddy-ToolSo when a product comes along made just for brows, I investigate fully. Enter BILLION DOLLAR BROWSThe Brow Buddy Tool ($19.95). If you choose to see a professional or just do them yourself, this tool will help. You’ve probably heard all the tips of how they are supposed to look like, the outer edge of your brow should fall here and the arch should start here. Oy, confusing! This tool comes with a white pencil to helps use the symmetry of your face to help you shape your own brows perfectly.
