L’Oreal Paris True Match Naturale Blush

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

Attention women with sensitive skin! L’Oreal Paris has a new blush, True Match Naturale that is 100% preservative free, talc-free, and fragrance free. And since it’s a mineral makeup, it’s actually good for your skin. We really liked that it came with a nice and soft blush brush which saves room in your makeup bag. We did notice that their blush shades come off way lighter than they appear in the container. So you might want to go darker than you usually do. There is also a lot of shimmer in this blush so if you like a matte finish this blush might not be for you.

Garnier Nutritioniste Moisture Rescue Lightweight UV-Lotion

Tuesday, November 16th, 2010

Since our favorite moisturizer is now Garnier Nutritioniste Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream we were eager to try another product from the same line – Moisture Rescue Lightweight UV-Lotion. Since it is agreed upon that UV rays cause the majority of skin damage and aging, we were drawn to the fact that this lotion also has an SPF of 15. Like the gel cream, this product promises to lock in moisture for 24 hours and contains grape water extract (anti-oxidant) and apple water extract (protects against moisture loss). However, although this lotion is meant to be worn during the day, we preferred to use it as a nighttime moisturizer instead. For our combination skin it was a little too greasy for day time wear but perfect for taking care of dry patches without clogging pores at night. If your skin is very dry, you might like this one better.  If you’re wondering which Garnier product to use for your skin, try their Product Advisor:

Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

It is rare that you get a really helpful beauty tip from makeup packaging, so we thought we’d share one we found on the package for Maybelline’s Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner. Step 2 says to “Glide brush in small strokes across lash line”. We tried that technique instead of doing one solid line and we were able to replicate the winged eyeliner in the picture perfectly. This gel eyeliner comes with the brush that you need to line your eyes, and it’s both smudgeproof and waterproof. We would suggest this product if you would like a really intense look. If you like your eyeliner to be more subtle or would like a finer line, we suggest Maybelline’s Line Stiletto Ultimate Precision Liquid Eyeliner.

Sally Hansen Continuous Treatment Hardening Formula

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

Having weak or brittle nails can be pretty frustrating. Your choices are getting fake nails (which can add up in cost) or constantly redoing your nails. To combat the problem the first thing you want to do is make sure you’re getting the right nutrition. Try biotin supplements to make your nails grow and Ginkgo biloba to improve circulation in your hands to stimulate nail growth. So what can you do for polish? We tried Sally Hansen’s Continuous Treatment Hardening Formula. What we were most impressed by is how long the base coat worked. If you have weak nails you know that with most nail strengtheners, your nails are only ‘strong’ for a day or so before they go back to the way they were. With this Continuous Treatment Hardening Formula, calcium and coral work to bond the layers of your nails together for 10 days – it contains a time release technology. Although this formula didn’t quite stop our nails from chipping or tearing completely, we did notice that it happened a lot less and we were able to grow our nails longer. In our opinion, this is Sally Hansen’s best nail strengthener yet.

Almay Smart Shade Anti-Aging Makeup

Friday, October 22nd, 2010

Many foundations are great at hiding wrinkles, but as the day progresses the foundation starts to settle in fine lines and wrinkles, which does more emphasizing than hiding. A great alternative is Almay’s Smart Shade Anti-Aging Makeup. This is a sheer to medium coverage foundation that not only won’t settle in fine lines, it actually improves their appearance. We liked the matte finish of this foundation and the lightweight feel. The product goes on white, and then transforms to a shade that matches your skin tone. Women who need darker shades may be disappointed, this product only comes in Light, Light Medium, and Medium. Also, we don’t recommend this product if you like full coverage.
