NARS Contour Blush Palette Review

Contouring the face can add shape, define and enhance. Although I don’t take the time to contour every day I do occasionally contour my cheeks, around my jaw line and down my nose. Today I have a review on the new contour blush palette by NARS. There are 3 different palettes with different combinations of colors to choose from. The palette I have is called Paloma which seems to be the second lightest set of colors in the line.

The light shade in the palette is meant to create “natural dimension and a luminous finish,” while the dark shade enhances and defines. I am a bit confused as to why NARS decided to refer to any of these colors as “blush” since the palette I have and the palette called Olymipa consists of a bronzer and highlight while the other palette (Gienah) has two dark bronzer shades. Nevertheless I do like this bronzer.

The darker shade is quite subtle for a bronzer especially for deeper complexions and if you want definition without a grey tone you may prefer the darkest palette. 

I prefer a lighter bronzer like this one because it doesn't  leave a heavy shadow in the hollows of my cheeks. It contours subtly and appears less noticeable. If you have a medium complexion like me and you want contour without dark, sharp lines then this product is wonderful. I like that it adds a natural looking shadow to the face while creating definition, I also think it would work well for fair skin tones. The powder is easy to blend and the texture is smooth and soft. It is also buildable and helps sculpt.

For $42 per palette I really wanted to like the highlight but it didn't work for me. When blended into my skin It appears white and it does not have enough pigment to create much illumination. When applied lightly and blended in it can also appear translucent and disappear so I don’t know how well it would show up on fair skin. I might be able to use it as a brow highlight or to blend shadow.

Although I like the bronzer and use it all the time I would have preferred a better highlighting product or an actual blush, something more usable. Because of this I would recommend the bronzer but you should test the highlight to see if it works for you.

Maybelline Master Hi-Lighting Blush Review

Today I have a review on a wonderful new multipurpose product by Maybelline. I love a radiant highlight and a nice blush for color and contour but it's not always easy finding shades that compliment each other. Applying a gorgeous blush and overshadowing it with a highlight in a different underlying color is redundant so products like the Master Hi-Lighting Blush are quite useful.

Pink Rose

The blush I have is called Rose Pink and it has an interesting woven pattern that is embedded with strips of dark and light shimmery pinks as well as a few strips of silver highlight for good measure. If you apply the pink colors on their own you end up with a pretty frosted pink blush. When the silver color is applied individually there is more highlight than color and the high points of the cheeks are beautifully illuminated.

I swatched the colors separately but they also produce a lovely effect when blended together.

The blushes come in six illuminating combinations including: Light Bronze, Coral, Nude and Deep Bronze. Some of the compacts are more of a highlight-bronzer duo but I prefer my highlight blended with my blush and my bronzer free of shimmer for contouring. The shades are not completely accurate on Maybelline's website, the colors are actually more vibrant and appealing in person.

The blush also comes with a brush that is hidden in a compartment underneath although the flat shape is not idea for application so I don’t use it.

With a fluffy face brush I sweep the blush-highlight duo over my cheeks, down the center of my nose and anywhere light naturally touches the skin. It can also be used as shimmery eye shadow to highlight the brow bone when paired with a good primer. When first applied the color is very subtle but it can be layered and built upon for more saturation.

Pink Rose is a very soft while providing an alluring natural flush that looks lovely for summer. You can find these blushes at most drug stores and they retail  for $7.94 each at Walmart.

Simple Everyday Makeup

It's nice to experiment with colorful makeup and create interesting looks but I don't always have time for that. When I have to be out of my house fast and I still want to look decent I usually use colors that can stand on their own without much blending or crease work. I also opt for colors that compliment my skin tone and can be matched with just about any shade of blush or lipstick. Its nice to have a few signature looks that you can recreate without much time or effort so you can get on with your day and still look great.

Below is one of the looks I wear when I'm short on time, its simple and quick.

For my lids I used silver. I started with the color Verve from the Naked 2 palette and added a brighter silver on top called Chrome from Silk Naturals. You can use whatever silver you have. In the crease I used a purple/brown shade from my Born Pretty Sweety shadow and blush palette, you can use brown, mauve purple or even black. I blended the crease out towards the brow bone with the color Foxy from the Naked 2 palette and lined my lids with the Cailyn gel liner.

For my face I used the Clarins illuminating base to even and prime and then I used my everyday foundation MAC Studio Fix and the MAC Pro Long Wear concealer. I finished it up with some pink blush, and set everything with my Ben Nye banana powder.

For my lips I could have went with a variety of colors but I decided to keep it a bit glamorous with classic red lipstick from Kiss New York. This shade is called Flirt Alert.

What look do your rock when you are short on time?

Makeup Setting Sprays: which ones really work?

In the humidity of summer under the sweltering heat of the mid morning sun makeup can take a turn for the worst. When I was in L.A earlier this year for The Makeup Show one question I was presented with was “how do you get makeup to last all day?” I carefully considered the setting sprays I've tried and which brands I would actually recommend. In warm weather it’s nice to have the confidence that your makeup will remain intact and stay fresh but some sprays may not live up to their claims. Today I will examine and compare the efficiency of a few different sprays and share my findings.

A few years ago when I was on the hunt for the Holy Grail of setting sprays. I did my research, read reviews and I decided to purchase within a few different brands and price ranges.

The setting sprays I will be reviewing are:
*Ben Nye Final Seal (matte makeup sealer) Price (2 oz $10)
*Urban Decay All Nighter Price (4oz $36)
*e.l.f setting spray Price (2.2 oz $3)
*MAC Fix + Price (3.4 oz $25)

I  also considered purchasing the well known Model in a Bottle spray because many Beauty Gurus swear by it but after testing the acclaimed sprays above I threw in the towel. I’m not saying these sprays aren't good, but I was surprised to find that many performed on an equal playing field.

TIP: Before purchasing a spray test it on the inside of the arm to make sure the formula does not cause an adverse reaction. Since many people buy these products with the intention of long-wear it is important to determine if it will irritate the skin.
Ben Nye Final Seal- $10
When I purchased this spray at IMATS the sales reps raved about the formula and its ability to keep makeup in place all day. In fact many have placed Ben Nye’s spray above all others and on Makeup Alley it has received impressive ratings. Although it is suppose to have a mattifying effect it doesn't, it does however keep makeup looking fresh for quite some time. When I use this spray my makeup doesn't budge or crease. It holds up well against humidity, sweat and during activity due to its waterproof formula.

The spray has a peppermint/menthol scent which I don’t care for and it burns if you accidentally get it in your eyes. The spray bottle doesn't always apply the product in an even mist and contact with hair should be avoided.

Final Seal does dry rather quickly but it doesn't offer much in terms of hydration, it also leaves behind a thin layer of sheen which serves to lock everything in place. If you use too much it can make skin feel dry, sticky and a bit tight. Overall this is a good setting spray, it works and is affordable but not everyone will like the finish.
Urban Decay All Nighter- $36
I purchased this spray last year before I made my way into the dessert. There is no better place to test out a setting spray than the intensely hot climate of Dubai. I tested this spray at the beach with slight exposure to water, sweat and intense heat. The product claims that it is “oil free, paraben free” and has “temperature control technology that last up to 16 hours.” It is meant for all skin types and is suppose to prevent “melting, cracking and fading.”

Although the spray works and does help keep makeup in good shape, for the price it doesn't go above and beyond the more affordable sprays. If you spray too much it may take longer to dry and you will begin to see water droplets appear on the skin which messes up makeup application. The spray is light-weight and doesn't feel unpleasant on the skin or have a strong scent. Although my results were good they weren't fantastic and it wasn't quite as long lasting in humidity as my Ben Nye spray which seems to have a stronger seal, almost like a second skin. Overall I like this spray I just don’t love it.

e.l.f Makeup Mist & Set- $3
Infused with aloe, green tea, cucumber and vitamins: A, C, and E this little spray can hold its own against the big guys. It  has actually been called a “dupe for the MAC Fix + spray” and it has been one of my favorites for years. No matter how many high end brands I try I always seem to come back to this one.

I like this product because it keeps my makeup in place; it doesn't irritate my skin as much as some of the other formulas, and the nozzle delivers short, strong busts of spray that coats the face well. It is also lightweight and works great in hot, humid temperatures. If sweating is profuse however you may still need to touch-up but if you don’t want to spend too much for a good spray I would definitely recommend this one.

MAC Fix + - $25
This spray contains vitamins, minerals, green tea, chamomile and cucumber. Compared to the other sprays this one is the most moisturizing and refreshing. It also “adds radiance and helps finish makeup.” I love the smell and unlike the others you can use it before or after makeup application. When used before it provides a supple dewy feeling and helps prime. When used after it lightly sets. It is great for dry skin and doesn't leave a stiff, sticky residue.

This is yet another spray that does help makeup last longer but again I found that compared to the cheaper brands (e.l.f and Ben Nye) it was pretty much on par. You can also use this spray on your brushes before you apply loose pigments and glitter shadow. I primarily use the spray as a moisturizer to mist my skin when I want a moist finish.
All these sprays work well but they do have different, finishes, longevity and scents so choosing one will depend on skin type, preferences and requirements. For me I realized that I didn't have to spend big bucks to get a decent spray, the affordable brands have a lot to offer and sometimes work just as well. If you are new to setting sprays and interested in testing some start within the affordable brands and if you don't find what you are looking for work your way up. 

What is your favorite setting spray?

e.l.f Cosmetics: Essential Shimmering Facial Whip Review

Sometimes while perusing the isles stocked with countless beauty products certain items get overlooked. Usually we form an opinion of a particular product based on numerous bits of information such as: price, advertising, reputation and reviews but just because a product is extremely affordable doesn't necessarily mean it isn't any good. 

Today I will review the e.l.f essential facial shimmering whips. These creamy facial shimmers are multipurpose; you can use them on the cheeks, lips, eyes, and anywhere else you want to add beautiful illumination to the skin. The whips come in five shades and contain vitamin E.

What I like most about this shimmer is that they are easy to work with. I squeeze a little onto my finger and blend in onto the high points of my cheeks and down the bridge of my nose for a radiant glow. These little tubes are perfect for summer and some shades can be used on the legs and shoulders to add an iridescent shine.

If you have sauntered past the e.l.f section at your local Target and dismissed these facial whips it’s time to stop and take a second look. For just $1 each they are not only a fantastic deal but they actually work!

I have the color Persimmon which is a pretty pink mixed with a pearl undertone. This shade can be worn  in place of blush or applied on top of your favorite pink blush to highlight and add dimension while making cheeks pop.

Lilac petal is a peach/tan color with a silver undertone to highlight. This shade can be used on the legs, and shoulders for beautiful summer illumination. When light catches the skin it seems to shine!

I did notice that the shimmer and color begins to separate when the product gets old. The formula is suppose to dispense in one fluid, creamy stream but when they expire the silver shimmer dispenses runny and watery while the pigment comes out separated. Since they are only $1 per tube it really isn't a big deal replacing them.

For those who don't have Target where you live you can purchase these from the website HERE but due to the shipping costs I would recommend browsing the site and ordering these along with whatever else you want.
Have you tried these facial whips yet?

Blueberry Yogurt Smoothie

Today I have another scrumptious smoothie recipe to share and this one is all about antioxidants and the goodness of blueberries!

Blueberries have amazing health benefits and in my house they are never in short supply! These small little fruits help improve cognitive function, dry skin, bladder health, reduce belly fat, prevents hypertension, helps reduce the risk of some cancers and much more! Not to mention they taste delicious on their own and in desserts, yogurts and drinks. 

This recipe is quick, easy and tastes great! I used my Nutribullet machine.
- A heaping handful of blueberries (thawed or frozen)
-Blueberry yogurt cup (I used Activa yogurt with added fiber)
- 1/2 Frozen banana
-Frozen strawberries
-Skim milk (or unsweetened almond milk)
Blend and enjoy!

TIP: I recommend allowing the frozen fruits to sit out for a few minutes because it makes them easier for the Nutribullet to blend, you may also run them under warm water for a few seconds.

Beauty Box Five Review: May 2014

This month Beauty Box Five is all about relaxing and taking the time to pamper yourself. This is a great theme since life can get hectic and when it does your skin can show it. First let’s take a moment to review how the service works.
How it works:
Beauty Box Five is a subscription service that starts at $12 for the monthly box, $30 for the quarterly subscription and $99 dollars for a year. In this box you will receive a mix of luxury items as well as common brands ranging from hair products, skin products, nail products, fragrances and beauty accessories. The box contains 5 products and usually includes one or two full sized items. The purpose of the subscription is to explore a variety of brands in order to determine which products work best for you.

 This week the box included some goodies to help revitalize skin and add a touch of floral freshness!

Masker Aide Hydrating Facial Sheet Mask: full size included (retail value $5.99)

I was excited to see this mask in the box because I have used them before. I like how wet and hydrating the serum is and they are great for rejuvenating skin before events or to kick off a fun weekend. This week I am leaving for a European vacation and I will be using this mask the night before take-off to help prepare my skin for the long journey.

H20 Plus Aqualibrium Marine Cleansing Gel: sample size included ( full size retail value- ($18)

Beauty Box Five has included this brand in a few boxes and I tend to like the products. The gel is made from sea salt to gently exfoliate and protect against free radicals and environmental damage. To use: massage into skin, rinse and pat dry. This is a rather small sample and may only be good for a couple of uses.

Ban Total Refresh Cooling Body Cloths: 3 cloths included: (retail value $2.97-10 cloths)

These wipes are meant to be used after the gym, a long day at work, before a big date or anytime you need to cool-off and refresh your body. They contain superfine powder so “skin stays smooth and comfortable all day.” These are a great idea for long summer days spent outdoors, vacations or the beach!

Harvey Prince - Hello Perfume: sample size included (retail value for full size-$55)

I love smelling great so I always have delicious smelling products on hand. Sample bottles of perfume are ideal for travel because it lessens your load and you don’t have to worry about breaking an expensive bottle of perfume. At first I wasn't sure if I liked this scent and it took a few sniffs to get use to, but once I did, I enjoyed it. It combines citrus, floral and sweet notes which is a nice, light scent for summer. The longer you wear it the better it tends to smell.

Cattiva Precision Eye Liner (full size included, retail value $20)

original photo frm:

Waterproof eye liner is a must-have for summer. It isn't cute when eye makeup melts off and causes unsightly darkness under the eyes. What I like about this pencil is that it is retractable, so no sharpening is required! I have no patience sharpening pencils just to have them break off or get warped. Although I tend to use gel and liquid liners most often, this pencil is easy to work with and draws on a bold, dark line. You may have to wait awhile for it to set because if you touch it right away it tends to smudge.

Overall this month’s box included some useful summer essentials! To see what was in last month's box click HERE and you can find out more about this subscription service HERE.

Essence Sun Club all-in-one bronzing highlighter

Since the beginning of spring I have reviewed a few bronzers and highlighting products because I love glowing summer skin. There is just something about the way the sun catches the shimmer in a nice highlighter that makes skin look dewy and healthy. One of my favorite glowing celebs is Jennifer Lopez, her makeup artist definitely knows how to highlight her cheeks for luminous skin and in the warmer months I try to achieve the same effect.

Today I have a review on a wonderful all-in-one bronzing highlighter by essence cosmetics. This product is a part of the Sun Club line that carries a few types of bronzers and highlighting products with both shimmer and matte finishes.

The bronzer I have is called 02 Sun Glow and is suited for brunettes and medium to dark complexions. It combines a distinctive blend of 5 different shades: deep bronze, medium bronze, gold, champagne and orange. Mixing the shades together produces a unique blend of colors and wearing each shade individually also creates different highlight and bronzing effects. 


In this photo I used the lightest color to illuminate my face

 essence products used in the above photo include:
*essence Get Big Lashes Triple Black Mascara
*essence Lash Mania Reloaded False Lase Mascara 
*essence Sun Club Bronzing Highlighter 
*essence lipstick in the shade- Wear Berries
*essence Metal Glam eye shadow in the shade Jewel Up The Ocean (Click HERE for review)

For blondes and fair complexions essence also offers a palette with lighter shades of silver, bronze, champagne and pink in the color 01 Sunlight (seen below).

What makes this product all-in-one is that any of the shades can be used to highlight the body or applied as eye shadow. If you are wearing a tank top or cute shorts this summer you can add some highlight to the shoulders and down the center of the legs for radiant looking skin.

The texture is smooth, easy to blend and very buildable for subtle shimmer or extreme glow. For such a great product it is a steal at just $4.49!
essence classic must-haves
Since I have been reviewing many of the new beauty products from essence I thought I would also give an honorable mention to some of my classic favs. I have purchased a lot of these essence Color & Go mini quick dry polishes because of their bright bold colors, great formula and convenient travel size. The shade called Ultimate Pink is my favorite pink lacquer and they retail for about $1.99 each.

You can find essence cosmetics at Shoppers Drug Mart, Ulta Beauty, on the website HERE and you can find a location near you by clicking HERE

Broadway Nails imPress Press-On Manicure Review

Today I have a review on an interesting product that has been on the market for some time. I like a fresh, bright manicure especially during the summer months but I will admit to being a bit impatient when it comes to prepping my nails, waiting for polish to dry and removing it once it chips. That’s where imPRESS nails come in, these press-on plastic nails are meant to last up to a week while being fast and easy to apply.

This wasn't my first experience with these nails, in fact I had purchased some on a trip months ago and they didn't work for me. The nails I picked up were the wrong size so it is important to read the box carefully. I was recently sent two boxes of nails from Influenster and luckily they contain 24 nails per box in 12 different sizes.

Directions for applying nails:
1. Find the correct size for each nail
2. Lay out 10 nails in finger order
3. Cleanse natural nails with enclosed prep pad
4. Remove sticker and firmly apply nails

To remove the nails gently peel off from the sides or use nail polish remover on the edges for one minute and peel off.

The designs I have are zebra print, which is a bit flashier than I prefer and a sparkly pink which is more my style. It’s important to follow the steps and clean nails prior to application because the natural oils on hands could affect adhesion. If nails are applied improperly liquids may seep between real nails and the false nails shortening their wear. It is also recommended that you choose nails that are a tad smaller rather than larger for best results. Each box also comes with a small, round nail file and one prep pad. 

My results:
I attempted to fit every one of my nails with all of the sizes provided but none of them fit! My nail beds are actually longer than every nail in the box even if I cut my nails the shortest they can be. Many of the smaller nails were too wide and overlapped onto my skin. I guess the 12 sizes don't fit all! I really wanted them to work but since this is my second attempt and failure with this product I think I will be giving up on them.

Total Skin Care Solutions Rapid Recovery Under Eye Cream Review and Giveaway!

Dark circles under the eyes are quite common and can be caused by lack of sleep, allergies and genetics. I have dark circles and I do my best to diminish their appearance by taking care of the sensitive skin under my eyes. Creams not meant for the eye area are often too potent and can cause irritation and adverse reactions so its important to choose products wisely. 

Today I have a review on Total Skin Care Solutions which is a company that sells moisturizers, exfoliators, wrinkle treatments and more. The company prides itself on using the finest ingredients nature has to offer including plants, extracts and oils. I love finding products that are natural and safe for my sensitive skin and this line contains no parabens, fillers, pesticides, mineral oil, chemicals, fragrances or artificial color.

The Rapid Recovery Under Eye Cream contains vitamin K which “increases circulation and reduces dark circles.” It also contains natural ingredients that “reduces puffiness, repairs damage, strengthens capillaries and delays age related changes including crows feet.” The molecules in this cream are small enough to “penetrate quickly and effectively.”

On the website there is a lot of helpful information and informative tips pertaining to the use of vitamin K including how to reduce dark, puffy eyes, you can find that information HERE. I have incorporated this eye cream into my nightly skin care routine and so far so good! I like the texture; it isn't thick or heavy but it isn't too thin either. It also covers well and has a pleasant scent.

I cannot yet attest to changes in darkness since deep pigmentation under the eyes does not disappear overnight and results may be more evident with prolonged use. I do notice that my eyes look less puffy and more refreshed when I wake up so I will definitely continue to use the Recovery Cream to keep my skin looking healthy and improved.

The full size cream retails for $34 dollars and a little goes a long way, you can find it HERE. You only need a small dab under the eyes before bed or in the morning under makeup. Currently Total Skin care Solutions is hosting a giveaway! You can enter below for your chance to win a beauty bundle valued at $200! Giveaway ends June, 2 2014.

Montagne Jeunesse Face Masks Review

Every Friday night I enjoy a pampering at home spa day with deep cleansing and a revitalizing face mask. Today I have a review on a line that I have been using for years. Montagne Jeunesse is a company that is very familiar in my home; in fact many of the women and even some of the men in my family have incorporated these masks into their skin care routines.

Over the years I have tried many of the masks this company has launched from sheet masks, peels and clays. I have purchased them in large tubes for multiple applications as well as individual packs for vacations, gift baskets and stocking stuffers during the holidays. The formulas in the masks work well for my sensitive, combination skin and I haven't experienced any problems with irritation.

The great thing about these masks is that they encompass some of the best natural ingredients from around the world from places like: Africa, China, Tibet and Scandinavia. The company harnesses revolutionary and ancient skin care ingredients that are beneficial for a wide range of skin types.

Today I have a review that showcases the great variety and versatility of Montagne Jeunesse including a few new soothing and deep cleansing masks that have recently launched. 

Glacial Clay Spa Mask

What makes this mask unique is the addition of  nutrient rich Arctic cloudberry juices from Scandinavia!
Natural Ingredients: natural clay, sea salt, Canadian glacial clay, sugar, aloe vera, red grape, cloudberry extract.
*Cools, hydrates, high in anti-oxidants, clears pores, removes impurities and soothes.

Aloe Vera Face Spa

I have used raw aloe vera gel on my skin before and I enjoy its soothing and cleansing properties.
*Natural ingredients: purified water, aloe, sugar, carrageenan, citric acid –(ph balancer), cucumber, algae, green tea extract.
Red Earth Clay Spa (with pulped pomegranate)

*Natural ingredients: purified water, natural clay, Mediterranean clay, sugar, orange oil, cinnamon, and pomegranate.
*Deep cleanses and protects.

Dead Sea Mud Spa (with pressed sea kelp)

*Natural ingredients: purified water, natural clay, sugar, aloe, Dead Sea salt, seaweed extract, sea kelp, Dead Sea mud.
*Revitalizes, boosts and hydrates.

Manuka Honey Peel Off (with honey nectar from New Zeland)

* Natural ingredients: purified water, honey, caramel, aloe, horse chestnut, chamomile, vanilla, and jasmine.
*Cleanses, anti-bacterial properties, hydrates and maintains moisture barrier of skin.

Super Fruit Mud (with Goji berries)

*Natural ingredients: purified water, natural clay, Dead Sea salt, acai fruit, pomegranate and gojiberry.
* “Goji berries are nature’s more powerful super fruit.” This mask is rich in amino acids, vitamins, and anti-oxidants to nourish, sooth, hydrate and rejuvenate.

Damask Rose (ultra deep cleansing)

*Natural ingredients: purified water, natural clay, shea butter, cocoa seed butter, Dead Sea salt, Mediterranean clay, rose, marula seed oil and damask flower.
*Deep cleansing, hydrate, smooth and moisturize for soft, silky skin.

It is difficult for me to pick just one favorite but I usually opt for the clay masks because they cleanse deeply and leave my skin rejuvenated and fresh. With such a large variety almost anyone can find a mask that suits their skin's needs.

These masks can be purchased at most drug stores including Walmart and are quite affordable from just $1.99-$2.49 for individual packs and $5.99 for an 80 ml bottle.
