Face Stockholm Summer 2009 Collection: Face Stockholm Cool at the Pool

Face+Stockholm+Summer+2009

If you’re a fan of the blues, not the music variety the makeup variety, Face Stockholm Cool at the Pool should appeal!

I’m a new convert to the joys of Face Stockholm so I’ve kinda been obsessive compulsively checking their website daily and adding ridiculous amounts of product to my cart and fighting with myself to not click enter!

Click ahead to hear about the Face Stockholm Summer Collection 2009!

As per the promo image this is what was used to create the splashing blue look you see above!

  • Make Up Base
  • A sheer application of Loose Powder #2 and Magic Wand will leave skin even without masking that natural summer glow.

  • Eyes
  • Apply Pearl Eye Shadow #44 on the lid up to the brow bone. Top off with a touch of Details Eye Dust for shimmer and shine. Brighten the inside of the eye with Clarity Eye Dust. Use Dark Blue Matte Eye Shadow and Forceful Eye Dust on the outer lid for a smokey effect. The Dark Blue Matte Eye Shadow also does double duty as a soft liner on the top lash line.

  • Lashes
  • Double up! Apply both Black and Blue Volumizing Waterproof Mascara for thick, rich lashes with a colorful twist that won’t budge, smudge or smear.

  • Cheeks
  • Cheeks pop with Organza Blush-On or Rio Crème Blush.

  • Lips
  • Full color power and shine is achieved with Instinct Lipstick and a top coat of clear glass.

    Loving the combination of hot pink lips and shocking blue on the lids! Quite reminds me of a day at the pool!

    What do you think?

    Lover of blues? I know I’m an aqua kinda chica myself!

    Make Up For Ever Metallic Powder

    make+up+for+ever+Metallic+Powder

    I just popped one of these in my cart! I can’t resist the magical allure of something so shiny!

    Make Up For Ever Metallic Powder ($36 USD) comes in two shades, gold and silver, and adds a metallic effect to skin for a sparkling effect. Yums!

    For the most part I’m not a fan of glittery bits and bobs on my body but I was reading a review on Sephora and it was mentioned that this could be mixed with eye shadow, used as liner, etc….the reviewer even mentioned that it was more of a liquid than a powder which I found very interesting.

    I’ve since contacted Make Up For Ever to see if it is indeed safe for the eyes, I’ll let you know as soon as they reply! For now please refrain from purchasing and using on eyes as it is advertised as a body item so buyer beware.

    I do hope MUFE will reply back and give me the green light for eye use as the shades would make an incredible foiled eye look! Likey!

    Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Optimism Body Mist Review

    Bath+%26+Body+Works+Aromatherapy+Optimism+Body+Mist

    Anyone smell this yet?

    It’s been a while since any one scent has captured my attention at Bath and Body Works but Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Optimism Body Mist, oh my gosh loves it!

    Jump ahead for it!

    I so, so hope that Bath and Body Works expands this line. They have always gone knee deep in for aromatherapy but never really touched base with it on a body fragrance level until now.

    Love this so much. It’s such an uplifting scent. It’s a blend of jasmine, tuberose, and maté but for the most part it has a bright, cheerful almost citrus-like scent. It manages to linger incredibly long and has a nice throw too!

    Considering it’s aromatherapy it does manage to give you a little lift in the morning after a few spritzes. Kinda reminds me of sunshine and sunny days!

    We could all use a bit of optimism in our lives right now and Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Optimism Body Mist definitely holds the key to a quick smile on a busy morning! Spritz, inhale, breath deep, and grin.

    Ahhhh loves it!

    Anyone try?

    Loving it as much as me?

    Tell the Muse!
