I love seeing celeb photos with the old translucent white powder mistake captured in a photo. Reminds me they are humans just like the rest of us…only humans with makeup artists that have heavy hands.
As for me? I’ve done the overdone translucent powder trick myself a time or two or several times. But I still use it…!
Stuff is solid gold joy for creating a flawless finish on your skin and it’s particularly a fav of mine for brightening up under my eyes and setting my concealer for all day wear.
MAC Prep + Primer Transparent Finishing Powder is now pressed! Bless be!
You know that one makeup item that you tell (or maybe your friends and family are daring enough to tell you) yourself you shouldn’t be wearing? For me it’s highlighter…I’ve actually come to terms with telling myself, “No, you can’t wear shimmery highlighter.”
Yay me! I’m so happy when I give myself a good talking to and I listen.
I can’t really take advantage of highlighters because I have a round face and wearing them just makes things look even rounder. Not a good look.
However, I collect ‘em like the crazy beauty junkie I am. I have zillions of pretty powders that I don’t really use because if you notice, most of ‘em, almost always, have shimmer.
Of course, Estee Lauder Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelée pops up as part of their Fall 2011 Collection and my hands begin to sweat because I really need “da shimmery” powder.
Lucky enough I got one to show you today!
Call me crazy, call me criminally insane…call me what you will but I am currently obsessed with geoGirl Kewl (cool) Magic Face Refresher. What is that so crazy?
Well, it’s kinda sorta a kiddie-tween makeup line.
geoGirl is a new collection of cosmetics that has launched exclusively at Walmart to replace the old Mary Kate and Ashley Collection (Yes, I have Mary Kate and Ashley cosmetics laying around here, sue me, shiz happens when you’re obsessed with beauty! CLICK!) and was developed to appeal to 8-12 year old girls. The collection features packaging that is recyclable and is a fully developed line of cosmetics that features over 60 products that will be paraben-free and have natural ingredients like chamomile, lavender,white willow bark and calendula as well as pomegranate and green tea extracts.
As for me, well, I’m not 12 anymore, maybe not physically of course, but mentally I’m right about that age-group. Tack on a few more years. But I’m still obsessed with their Magic Face Refresher, proof positive you don’t have to be 12 years old to enjoy geoGirl.
MAC extends it’s Prep + Prime Collection mid-August with some new additions including their new Prep + Primer Fortified Skin Enhancer SPF 35.
Available in four shades, Fortified Skin Enhancers are a series of correcting primers to address issues such as dull skin, redness, etc…
Let’s take a look at two of them now!
Sometimes you have to keep us makeup junkies interested. We’ve tried it all so it’s hard to get us juiced up about a new product.
Cream eyeshadow isn’t exactly my idea of breaking new ground however one that promises an eight hour wear and includes a rather nifty cooling applicator….hmmm, now you’re attracting my interest.
The new Clinique Lid Smoothie Eye Colour promises an eight hour formula, comes in a range of 12 shades, and has a cream to powder formula but that’s not the cool part, “cool” get it? Each shade comes with a cooling applicator!
