Physicians Formula Brow Last Longwearing Brow Gel

Physicians-Formula-Brow-Last-Longwearing-Brow-Gel-main
I’ve been at a bit of a loss when it comes to keeping my brow hairs in place. I’ve been oscillating between a wax pencil from ASBH and something called Eye Brow Coat from Daiso. I have my father’s brows so crazy hairs that do their own thing sometimes so my brows getting “messy” is a thing.

Let’s file this post under, “I forgot I had this,” shall we? It’s PHYSICIANS FORMULA Brow Last Longwearing Brow Gel ($10.95 @ physiciansformula.com, ulta.com) and it’s a, “longwearing, water-resistant (I think waterproof), transfer-proof, smudge-proof, budge-proof transformer with brown-enhancing ingredients.

Veil Cosmetics Automatte

Veil-Cosmetics-Automatte-Mattifying-Base-&-Touch-Up
Shiny is great when it comes to jewels and cars but no so much for the face. Do you carry a touch up powder in your purse? I do. I think most women who are into makeup do and it’s usually in the form of a pressed powder. Well that is all about to change. Introducing VEIL COSMETICS Automatte Mattifying Base & Touch-Up Makeup ($39 @ veilcosmetics.com).

This is a colorless, powderless, weightless, anti-shine touch up balm will be all you need to tote with you in your purse for touch ups. To me, it’s a touch up powder without the powder combined with blotting paper without the paper! I remember Mally Beauty came out with something like this many years ago and I actually wrote about it back in 2010 here. Do you remember this one? So it’s not a totally new concept but I don’t think that one caught on and I think it should.

Tarte Mermaid Shine Metallic Seaglass Eyeshadow Set

Tarte-Mermaid-Shine-Metallic-Seaglass-Eyeshadow-Set-main
I really love these creamy liquid-to-powder glittery metallic shadows the brands have been coming out with lately. See here and here. The texture is stunning and they are really pigmented. These differ from just a straight glitter in that the glitter is suspended in a long lasting cream. Some are the same color of the glitter and some are not.

The latest in on the craze is from TARTE COSMETICS and their Mermaid Shine Metallic Seaglass Eyeshadow Set ($28 @ tartecosmtics.com).

Nyx Cosmetics Matte & Vinyl Liquid Liners

Nyx-Cosmetics-Matte-Liquid-Liner-and-Vinyl-Liquid-Liner-with-other-products
I've been pretty happy with the It Cosmetics Liquid Liner but about mid-last week, I suddenly decided that I needed to have the blackest liquid liner there is! Thankfully The Makeup Show was last weekend in Los Angeles, so I took my quest there and ended up with two from NYX COSMETICS

COL-LAB Matte Addiction Liquid Lip ColoR

COL-LAB-Matte-Addiction-Liquid-Lip-Color-in-Lush-Lover-Blindfold-and-Non-Stop
Have you heard of the COL-LAB makeup line yet? Pretty fascinating. It’s eight beauty influencers heading up the direction in their Color Lab in New York City: @makeupbyamarie, @xsparkage, @whatwouldlizzydo, @ravenelyse, @saammage, @claireashleybeauty, @wesleybenjamincarter, @sudanidoll. I seem to always have a suggestion on how a product can be make just a little bit better, so this is great! I mean, who knows makeup better? It’s seems like an obvious partnership.

So let’s look at their Matte Addiction Liquid Lip Color ($8.79 @ collabmakeup.com, $9.99 @ sallybeauty.com). These only take one swipe to cover the lips, they dry down all the way to a 100% non-transferable finish and surprisingly, the two darker shades performed better than the lightest one! For some reason, I usually have the opposite happen.

Rimmel Stay Satin Liquid Lip

Rimmel-Stay-Satin-Liquid-Lip-Colour
RIMMEL
just came with another version of their liquid lipsticks. The Stay Satin Liquid Lip ($5.49 @ rimmellondon.com, walgreens.com, target.com) comes in 14 shades and dries down to a satin finish, or what I call, a semi-transferable finish. So these are more comfortable to wear but the down side is that they don’t have the longevity that a more matte version would. Comfort? Long-wearing? I usually take comfort over long-wearing unless there is some odd situation for why I need to have my lippie really stay put for a long time, whether it's uncomfortable or not which doesn't happen often.

I got about 7 hours of wear out of one and surprisingly, the darker two wore better than the lighter ones. Take A Chill Pill balled up on my lips L The wear of these really reminded me of ColourPop’s Ultra Satin Lip.

Milk Makeup Long Wear Gel Eyeliner

Milk-Makeup-and-creating-a-smokey-eye
A liner is a liner is a liner, right? So not! If you love makeup like I do then you already know this. Overall liner have sure have gotten better and I feel we are at a peak right now. I mean take these ones, they are a gel (remember when a gel liner only came in a pot?), they’re waterproof (most are still only water resistant), and these dry down to a totally unmovable finish for hours (remember when liner barely lasted the evening out?).

And those three traits and more are what you get with MILK MAKEUP Long Wear Gel Eyeliner ($22 @ milkmakeup.com, sephora.com).

Stila Cosmetics Vivid & Vibrant Collection

Using-Stila-Cosmetics-Vivid-&-Vibrant-Makeup-Collection-final-look
This Vivid & Vibrant Collection from STILA COSMETICS is a tricky one. A lot of the items are filled with shimmer and glitter so I had to be choosy when it came to what I used for this look and take my time b/c I would have been easy to go overboard!

Click the link below the bottom pic to see what I used to get just the right amount of shimmery glow for this look!
