An All-in-One Brow Tamer from Physicians Formula

I’m pretty much obsessed with my brows. Unless I just had them done, they always seem to need a trim or to be reshaped. With all the freakin’ products I own for them (pencils, pomades, combs, spoolies, setting gels, highlighter and more), all you really need are these included in PHYSICIANS FORMULA Eye Booster 4-in-1 Brow Boosting Kit ($14.95 @ ulta.com and physiciansformula.com). Right now it’s only available in Universal Brown (the pencil color is this shade) but I’m maybe they’ll add more options if this sells well.

Are You Jumping on the Color-Correcting Bandwagon?

Algenist-REVEAL-Color-Correcting-Radiant-Primer-and-Concealer
Color correcting makeup is all the rage right now and there have been quite a few brands that have splashed products on the scene. Here are a few I’m digging right now.

This is the ALGENIST’s first foray into the makeup world and they latched onto a pretty hot trend right now! Not only do each of these two products contain their AlgaCorrecting Complex to fight aging, but it uses the naturally-occurring red, blue, green and golden algae that exists in the complex to do the correcting.

ALGENIST REVEAL Color Correcting Radiant Primer ($36) – smooths out your skin creating the ultimate canvas for what’s to come next!

ALGENIST REVEAL 6-in-1 Color Correcting Concealer ($28) – yup, this does 6 things: primes, brightens, treats, color corrects, provides high coverage and helps fight aging. This one camouflaged some pretty nice dark circles I was sporting one morning.

Both @ sephora.com.

Raise Your Hand if You Wear Eye Color Enhancing Shadows

Physician's-Formula-Shimmer-Strips-Custom-Eye-Shadow-for-Green-and-Blue-Eyes How hot are eye color enhancing shadows? Do you know people who use them religiously? I don’t but then again, I’ve never taken a poll. They can’t hurt though, right? PHYSICIANS FORMULA came out with Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow & Liner from the Pop Collection recently and the bright springy colors are just so uplifting! Out of the four, I think the Enhance Green Eyes palette is the best one but all four combos seem workable. They break up each palette where the top 3 colors are considered the Trio #1 Natural colors or considered the most versatile, the middle 3 are the Trio #2 Playful colors and the bottom 3 are the Trio #3 Dramatic, which can be used for contouring

And the sponge brush that comes with it seems pretty workable but not as versatile as they seem to claim. The tip of it can be used for lining but I think a lining brush works better but the flat side of the sponge brush is pretty good at applying the color to all over the lid. So it’s a keeper until it gets saturated with too many of the colors!

Physician's-Formula-Shimmer-Strips-Custom-Eye-Shadow-for-Hazel-and-Brown-Eyes If you are a little nervous about sticking your toe into the color spectrum, this is a good one to try out as the colors are pretty sheer overall and totally buildable. Use each color wet or dry and each as a liner, as mentioned above, or a shadow. $10.95 @ walgreens.comamazon.com.

Calling All Cheeks

I sometimes get all caught up in eye shadows and glosses that I forget about blushes. One of my fall resolutionsPhyformblushessss_3 is to not forget about cheeks. PHYSICIANS FORMULA Powder Palette Multi-Colored Blushes ($10.49 @ walgreens.com) are keeping me in line and at the same time looking beautiful! The several swatches of shades can blend together in the palette to sculpt and define cheeks. Three different blends to choose from. Picks are Blushing Berry and Blushing Mocha.
