Revlon ColorBurst Lipgloss

Monday, February 28th, 2011

We loved Revlon’s Just Bitten Lipstain and Balm so we decided to also give their ColorBurst Lipgloss a try. This gloss promises “weightless color and mirror-like shine”. It also contains moisturizers (anti-oxidants and Vitamin E) for healthy lips. While we didn’t find this lipgloss much shinier than most glosses, we were truly amazed by the weightless feel. It feels just as light as Chapstick. High shine without feeling like you have gobs of gloss on is always a welcome experience! ColorBurst Lipgloss is available in 15 shades. We tried Peony, which is a very natural looking pink color.

Almay Intense I-Color Smoky-I Kit

Thursday, February 17th, 2011

Almay has a line of eyeshadow kits that are designed to flatter your natural eye color. We tried the kit for brown eyes and didn’t think the purple shade (for the crease) would look good at all. However, if applied with a light hand it looked great. These kits are made for the smoky eye look, so if you want to go for a day time look don’t go any farther than your crease with the darkest shade. By the way, these eyeshadows are hypoallergenic as well as talc and paraben free!

Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

Although we really wanted to try the Clarisonic Cleansing System, the $195 price tag gave us pause. Clarisonic is a rotating brush for your face that uses sonic technology to cleanse. The Clarisonic claims to be 6x more effective at removing makeup and 2x more effective at removing dirt and oil. By giving a thorough cleansing, the Clarisonic makes it so your skincare products are able to work more effectively. Olay has recently launched their Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System, and this system is said to be just as effective as the Clarisonic! We purchased it at Walgreens for just $29.99, and since they were having a promotion we also got a full-sized cleanser (a $19.99 value) for free. It also comes with a sample size of the Olay Exfoliating Renewal Cleanser. What we loved the most about this is the luxurious feeling of the brush and that it’s whisper quiet. It’s very soft and it’s wonderful to have a spa-like experience every time you wash your face. Also, since the Pro-X Cleansing System exfoliates dead skin cells, it leaves your skin feeling very soft. However, we don’t recommend using this twice a day. Using it more than once may be a little much exfoliation for most people’s skin. Also rather than following the directions on the box which said to massage the cleanser on the face and then use the brush, we just put the cleanser directly on the brush and were happy with the results. The Olay Pro-X replaceable brush head is water-resistant and operates on two speed settings. We’re not sure how great the Clarisonic is in comparison, but we definitely think that the Olay Pro-X is a great buy.

CoverGirl TRUcheeks Blush

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

We are fans of the CoverGirl TRUblend line, which is a line of cosmetics that adjust to go with your skin tone. Once you know what your foundation is, there are corresponding concealers, pressed powders, and blushes marked with the same number as your foundation. It eliminates the amount of time many of us spend in the drugstore aisle staring at products and trying to figure out the right shades. TRUcheeks blush has a palette of 3 complementary colors that are meant to be mixed to get the perfect shade you want. However, if you’re like us and like a contoured look, you can you use the lightest color to highlight your cheek bones, the mid-color for the apples of your cheeks, and the darkest color for the hollow of your cheek.

Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain and Balm

Monday, February 7th, 2011

If you hate the feeling of wearing lipstick but still want color you would probably like Revlon’s Just Bitten Lipstain and Balm. The feel is as if you’re just wearing chapstick, and the color lasts all day long. The stain looks great and lets you have color without looking too ‘done’. You apply the stain first and give it some time for the color to set. Then you apply the balm, which contains Vitamin C. Our favorite part about this is that it’s goof-proof – no leaving lipstick on cups or worrying about it smearing after eating. There are ten different shades so you can choose how natural you want to make your look. Our personal favorite was Beloved, which is a very flattering shade of berry.
