Nars Light Reflecting Pressed Powder used with the BeautyBlender.

  • Lancome Teint Idole 24H Foundation 340 (N) Bisque lasts all day with slight oil break through on the T-Zone area.  Plus the color selection is amazing, I have never had a foundation match my skin coloring so well.
  • Guerlain Meteorites Primer is lovely, but severely overpriced for what it does.  There are other primers that do the job just as well for a fraction of the price.
  • Chantecaille Gel Bronzer (reviewed here) has been used since my little beach excursion.  Someone forgot to tell me to rotate my beach chair, as a result, the right side of my face is more tan than the left.  I use this guy to even myself out.
  • Nars Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder (reviewed here) has been the secret to my “flawless” skin.  I simply use a DRY BeautyBlender to pick up product, tap off the excess on a towel and use the “press and roll” method to apply the powder onto the T-Zone area and on any enlarged pores around my cheeks.
  • Wayne Goss 01 Brush (reviewed here) is the ultimate foundation (everything) brush.  There is no going back to another brush.  Enough said!

  • Vincent Longo Copper Kiss Bronzer (reviewed here) is so finely milled and pigmented.  I use my Chikuhodo Z-8 Cheek Brush to apply the bronzer to my face and Tom Ford Bronzer Brush (reviewed here) to apply the powder to my décolletage.
  • Estee Lauder 04 Crystal Baby Gelee (reviewed here) is such a lovely pearlescent pink highlighter.  I use my slightly dampened Tom Ford Cream Foundation Brush (reviewed here) to apply the powder to highlight the cheek bones.  Just remember to use this beauty sparingly to avoid looking like a disco ball.
  • Giorgio Armani 10 Beige Sheer Blush remains my favorite blush color.  This muted pinky/beige hue seems to go with every makeup look under the sun.  Use with a dense dampened brush for more color intensity and longevity.
  • Vincent Longo Sandalwood Dew Drop Blush (reviewed here) is just as finely milled as 10 Beige, but gives me the option to utilize a peach blush for certain looks.  I prefer to apply this pigmented powder with my Chikuhodo Z-2 Highlighter Brush for even and smooth results.

Current Favorites:
Givenchy 9 Brun Cachemire with Cargo Waterproof Bronzer on the lower lash line. Tom Ford Eye Defining Pen with Armani Navy Eyes to Kill Solo on the upper lash line. YSL #07 Gold Star on the waterline.

  • Cargo Waterproof Bronzer combined with Givenchy 9 Brun Cachemire (reviewed here) are my everyday lower lash line colors.  Applying the same colors to my lower lash line as those on my lid, does not look particularly flattering on my eyes.  The resulting bronze coloring defines the area and brightens the eyes.
  • Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Solo Eyeshadows in 2 Armani Navy and 9 Tadzio (reviewed here and here) have amazing pigmentation and longevity; the latter looks so delicious when applied with a dampened brush.
  • YSL #07 Gold Star Cream Liner makes an amazing waterline color.  I find this formula lasts all day with slight fading on the outer corners.  As an added bonus, the deep gold coloring looks great with a variety of eye looks.
  • Clinique High Impact Extreme Mascara has served me well for the last few months.  It does exactly what it claims to do.
  • Chikuhodo Z-5 Eyeshadow Brush (reviewed here) is the one brush that can do it all (at least on my eye shape).  The soft dense hairs pick-up color quickly and delicately.  Never a scratchy moment with this beauty.
  • Sonia Kashuk Concealer Brush is used dampened to apply my eyeshadows.  The synthetic fibers are rather resilient and the price cannot be beat.  Lately, I have been using this wonder to apply Armani Navy along the upper lash line and in the outer corners.
  • Nars Eyeshadow Primer (reviewed here) is the best eyeshadow primer……period.
Current Favorites: Tom Ford Eye Defining Pen, Shu Uemura 05 Stone Gray, Milani Brow Gel.

Current Favorites:
Tom Ford Eye Defining Pen, Shu Uemura 05 Stone Gray, Milani Brow Gel.

  • Tom Ford Eye Defining Pen (reviewed here) has been in my possession for 10 months and has remained as inky black as the first day I brought it home.  The quality of the dual ended felt tips is outstanding, they remain unaffected by eyeshadow residue.  My Milani Eyeliner was prone to eyeshadow build-up, as a result, the tip no longer dispense product.
  • Shu Uemura 05 Stone Gray was discovered in the back of one of my makeup drawers.  Even though the color is a bit deeper than it predecessor, 02 Seal Brown, a pencil this wonderful could not go to waste.  My 02 Seal Brown Pencil lasted 3 years before a replacement was needed.
  • Milani Brow Gel does what it claims to do at a very cheap price.

Estee Lauder Insolent Plum Pure Color Envy Lipstick, Lipstick Queen Private Party Velvet Rope Lipstick, Dior Fluid Sticks, It Cosmetics YLBB Waterproof Lip Liner Stain.

  • Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipsticks (reviewed here) are wonderful.  450 Insolent plum is one of my favorite shades.
  • Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope Lipsticks (reviewed here) have a heavenly formula.  Private Party is the perfect bright pinky/red shade for the summer time.
  • Dior Addict Fluid Sticks (reviewed here) have a lovely texture.  The lasting power is not the greatest on their own, but when added to a long wearing lip color, the results are stunning.
  • It Cosmetics YLBB Waterproof Lip Liner Stains (reviewed here) have amazing longevity especially when used as a base for lipsticks.
Current Personal Care Favorites: Coconut Oil, Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil, Natures Gate Toothpaste, L'Oreal Olio Therapy Shampoo, Sienna Naturals Leave-in-Conditioner, Target Eye Makeup Remover.

Current Personal Care Favorites:
Coconut Oil, Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil, Natures Gate Toothpaste, L’Oreal Olio Therapy Shampoo, Sienna Naturals Leave-in-Conditioner, Target Eye Makeup Remover.

  • Organic Coconut Oil is my night-time/summer-time moisturizer.  Bruce Fife, C.N., N.D. wrote a great book called, The Coconut Oil Miracle, outlining all the benefits of Coconut Oil.  He states, “Polynesians, who traditionally wear very little clothing, have beautiful skin without blemishes and without cancer.  The reason is they eat coconuts and use the oil on their bodies as a lotion.”
  • Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse is my day-time/summer-time moisturizer.  The dry-oil quickly absorbs into the skin and doesn’t cause me to “sweat” during hot humid days.
  • Natures Gate Toothpaste is one of the few toothpaste brands that is fluoride-free and sodium laurel sulfate free.
  • L’Oreal Oleo Shampoo is sulfate-free and smells heavenly.  I would purchase Sienna Naturals Shampoo, but my son goes through shampoo like water and requires a readily available and affordable alternative.
  • Sienna Naturals Leave-In-Conditioner was recommended by Olivia from The Unknown Beauty Blog (her fabulous review here).  I love this product, the all natural formula truly smooths out the hair without weighting it down.  I’m on my second bottle, my son used up the first bottle completely.
  • Target Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover gets the job done.  Although I am a devoted Bioderma user, as of late, I feel a tinge of resentment over the inflated price ($40) for a makeup remover.  The same product in France cost $10 dollars.
Current Favorites: City of Heavenly Fire, Tom Ford Violet Blonde Perfume,Estee Lauder Insolent Plum Nail Lacquer.

Current Favorites:
City of Heavenly Fire, Tom Ford Violet Blonde Perfume,Estee Lauder Insolent Plum Nail Lacquer.

  • City of Heavenly Fire is the last book in The Mortal Instrument Series.  If you enjoy a quick supernatural read, then this series is for you.  The movie was a major disappointment, the series had the potential to be the next Harry Potter and they wrecked that opportunity with a horrible script and subpar actors.
  • Tom Ford Violet Blonde is the only perfume that will last during the hottest of days.  I would love to describe the notes and so on, but Gaia from The NonBlonde is the source for all things fragrance related.
  • Estee Lauder Insolent Plum Nail Lacquer is amazing. The left photo shows the polish on the first day and the right photo shows the polish on the fifth day with a fresh top coat added.

As mentioned in many posts, I love Givenchy Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadows; the consistency, longevity and formula are amazing.  For this Makeup of the Week: Budge Proof Makeup, an impromptu tennis session and a five-mile walk, with my sister, created the perfect occasion to see if these beauties would live up to the “waterproof” claim.  Did I have high expectations?  Yes.  Did I want zero color fading and migration?  Yes.  Did I get everything I wanted?  You betcha 🙂

  10. Estee Lauder Eyeliner/Brow 20 Brush used to apply Givenchy 7 Gris Organza.

THE VERDICT:  If makeup could talk what would it say?

Makeup would tell you Givenchy Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadows lasted beautifully under these extremely hot conditions, thus substantiating the waterproof claim.  Four hours of humidity and sweat really put these cream shadows to the test.  The rest of my makeup held up fairly well, with the exception of my bronzer.  Do I normally wear this much makeup during a workout?  No way–I just happened to have been bamboozled by my darling sister to participate in her daily workout routine…and I loved every minute!!!  I hope you found this helpful.  Be well, stay safe and be happy.

It Cosmetics Your Lips But Better Waterproof Lip Liner Stain in Spicy Nude, Perfect Red, and Blushing Nude.

I was always of the strong belief a quality lip liner could make or break any lip look.  Lip Liners are wondrous creations, intended to define lips, keep emollient lipsticks from feathering and provide color depth and dimension to any lip look.  It Cosmetics Your Lip But Better Waterproof Lip Liner Stain ($20 USD/.50 g/.017 oz.) performs all these tasks and more.  If I had to have one lip liner brand in my makeup arsenal, It Cosmetics YLBB Waterproof Lip Liner Stain would be “it” 🙂

The Pros to It Cosmetics Your Lips But Better Waterproof Lip Liner Stain:

  1. Smooth application without tugging on the lips.
  2. Non-drying formula.
  3. Amazing longevity when worn alone (without eating).
  4. Once the color “sets,” it does not budge…hence the waterproof claim.
  5. Extends the longevity of lipsticks and lip glosses.
  6. Will prevent lipstick/lip glosses from feathering into fine lines around the lips.
  7. Can be layered (5 seconds between layers) without feeling heavy or uncomfortable.
  8. Twist-up mechanism eliminates the annoyance of having to sharpen the pencil (casing is really plastic not wood).
  9. Built-in tip “sharpener” located at the base of the pencil.
  10. Base of the packaging is color coated to match the shade inside the pencil.
  11. Spicy Nude (most universal shade) can be worn with a variety of colors ranging from lightest to darkest.
  12. Contains Collagen, Peptides, Hyaluronic Acid, Shea Butter, Argan, Jojoba and Avocado Oil.
  13. Lips never feel dry even after color has faded or been removed.
  14. Paraben-free and no animal testing.

The Cons to It Cosmetics Your Lips But Better Waterproof Lip Liner Stain:

  1. These beauties are loaded with silicones, Cyclopentasiloxane being the first ingredient.
  2. Seventh ingredient, Polyethylene is a plastic used to make plastic grocery bags, shampoo bottles and bullet-proof vests…Always a good idea to remove any lip color before eating.
  3. Limited color selection..only seven shades available.
  4. Lighter colors must be layered to show-up on pigmented lips; you could run-out of product faster with these shades.
  5. Staining claim is a bit ambiguous, on my pigmented lips there was no staining effect.
  6. If too much time lapses between layers, an additional layer can drag on the lips.
  7. Not impervious to greasy foods…skip the fried chicken, salad dressing, spaghetti and meatballs, etc..
  8. Limited physical retail locations…only sold in-person at Ulta.

Blushing Nude is a rosy tinged neutral color.  This color looks particularly lovely when paired with Dior Addict Fluid Stick 219 Whisper Beige (reviewed here).  This pairing lasted over four hours, it would have lasted longer if I didn’t remove it to eat my coconut crusted chicken cutlets 🙂

My favorite color out of the trio, Spicy Nude is a soft brown based neutral color.  Oddly enough this color appears to have a mauve undertone when applied to my lips.  Additionally, this color is a bit tackier in feel than the others; however, it fuses brilliantly with all lipstick/lip glosses I have tested.  In my eyes, Spicy Nude is the most universal shade It Cosmetics offers.  I absolutely love the effect of Spicy Nude when paired with Dior Addict Fluid Stick 893 Trompe L’Oeil (reviewed here).

Perfect Red is a lovely warm tone red.  This color is rather pigmented, therefore, multiple layers are not really required.  When one layer was applied, the resilience was not as impressive as when 2-3 layers were used.  For the above photo, I paired one layer of Perfect Red with Dior Addict Fluid Stick 975 Minuit (reviewed here).  Even though the this combo lasted 4 hours, I did experience slight feathering around the upper lip region.

THE VERDICT:  If makeup could talk what would it say?

Makeup would tell you It Cosmetics Your Lips But Better Waterproof Lip Liner Stains are wonderful.  I prefer these over my MAC Pro Longwear Lip Liners, Dior Lip Liners and Chanel Lip Liners.  If you have issues with lipstick feathering/bleeding, just like moi, then these beauties will become essential in your makeup wardrobe.  Just make certain to remove any lip product before eating.  Longevity in our lip products is great, but always be aware it is not a natural state and must be treated with caution.  Be well, stay safe and be happy.
