M.A.C. Cosmetics New View Collection

M.A.C. has a great new collection out that I find very useful. So I declare this a must have product! M.A.C. New View is a collection of mineralized baked skin finish powders for finish, contour, and highlight. M.A.C. describes New View as follows: Natural and Shimmer. The split personality of powder now, in NewView combinations… Continue Reading

Cargo Cosmetics: The Big Bronzer

Once the weather starts getting warm, I feel like wearing bronzer is more legitimate. I wear it in winter too instead of blush, but nothing says spring and summer like bronzer does! A new one for me was CARGO The Big Bronzer Cheek Color, which I tried in the medium shade. This bronzer is indeed… Continue Reading

True Cosmetics Luminance Collection

Spring is a great time for luminous and sheer looks. That also happens to be the theme of many of the 2008 spring cosmetic collections. For those who want a great luminous spring look all in one palette and don’t mine a bit of a premium price (I think this one is well worth it),… Continue Reading

This unique collection of shimmering eye and cheek colors is probably best tried in the store. It is hard to tell what the color will… Continue Reading

Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Starter Kit: Mineral Makeup, Brushes, Blush and Bronzer

I really like mineral foundation/makeup, but for whatever reason, it had been years since I used bareMinerals foundation from Bare Escentuals. I use their eye shimmers pretty often and just love those, but I had been experimenting with other brands when it came to foundation. I recently decided to give them a new try and… Continue Reading

Review: Smashbox Soft Lights

A nice, but very subtle product, is Smashbox Soft Lights. Smashbox makes this illuminating powder/bronzer/blush in a variety of packages, from duos to a quad, to variegated bronzers. My experience with it has been mostly as a blush, although I tried the fusion bronzer in the store. As a light blush or an illuminating powder,… Continue Reading
