It’s not only because I think it’s amazing, it’s because that is the name of the brand too (smart,huh?). Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer is all that plus the bag of BBQ chips. I like a concealer to not only truly conceal, but that highlights and moisturizes as well and you get all of that with this product. A little truly goes a looooong way so back it up heavy-handers, a little dab’ll do ya in this case. On the pricey side, $42, but like I said, a little goes a long way and I have had the same tube for literally over a year. Check it out here.
In the sea of products out there by celebrity makeup artists, it says something that my friend and master makeup artist, legendary Billy B has put all of his focus solely on a brush collection. I can tell you the reason for that: brushes are an extension of an artistes hand and without the perfect tool, it’s close to impossible to create the final product you see in your head. With Billy B Brushes you achieve the end result you were hoping for. The quality, the consistency, the luxury, it is all there in every last one of these brushes. I have been completely spoiled and I am telling you all, if you can’t afford the set, start with one or two and build. It is worth every, damn cent. Get on the list here to get invited to his shop on Beautylish!
When I tell you that MUFE’s Aqua Shadow pencils give me life? It’s no exaggeration! These are the most amazing pencils ever. They are catwalk tested and last all friggin night both on the lid and more importantly for me? The waterline. I think I own mostly every color but believe it or not, I use the green most often (just don’t tell Mme La Queer). Run, don’t walk, to the closest Sephora to pick up a few, you can thank me later. Check out the colors here.
Bye bye Nars Turkish Delight, hello Butter London’s Teddy Girl! OMG you guys, as I was wandering around an unfamiliar mall in NH over the weekend, I walked into an ULTA store and was going through the makeup aisle and stopped at the Butter London section to look at the nail lacquers when I found their Lippy’s. My eyes went right to the palest pink color called Teddy Girl. Now, what makes this gloss special, is the fact that not only is it a gloss, but it is a true pigment as well. It is quite possibly the most perfect shade of baby pink gloss/color that I’ve ever seen. I can use it with liner for color and gloss and it isn’t sheer, it’s opaque and lovely. I am a convert for life. $17 bucks is not cheap for a gloss, but I will pay it for this genius formulation.
There are literally hundreds of bronzers out there, but today I’m talking just the powdered variety, not the liquid or self. I have bought, tried, used so many out there that promise the world and deliver nothing but an orangey after glow with too much shimmer. To me a bronzer needs to be just that; bronzing. It shouldn’t have shimmer, we could add that after the fact, so we can control it and don’t end up looking like an orange C3PO. My favorite for years, with the best, most natural looking tan color is Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals Faux Tan. It was such a hit for them they released a liquid version and a bunch of Faux Tan other products but I am just endorsing the original right now. 19 dollah make ya holla and you will LOVE it!
