Prescriptives The Illuminator All Over Face Color.

The Illuminator All Over Face Color Powder from Prescriptives saved me this weekend. With so much, really too much going on, I barely had time for makeup, and using The Illuminator made my makeup a cinch.

I used the powder not only on my cheeks as a bronzer with the two darkest colors and then topping that with the pink and gold color, I highlighted them also with the two shades in the middle, a real light shimmery gold mix.  Then I used the darker bronzed colors on my eyelid, and the golds on my brow bone. I even dabbed a bit of the gold color on the bottom of my lower lip after applying some gloss.

The colors blended so easily and felt like satin on my skin.

Here is what Prescriptives says what The Illuminator is:
"This ultra-luxurious all over face color is like candlelight in a compact. Bask in the glow as you sweep The Illuminator All Over Face Color over face and cheeks to highlight, contour, illuminate and customize any look with golden warmth. Three complementary shades impart a luminous 3-D effect that is strikingly beautiful and flattering to all skin tones. Perfect for touch-ups throughout the day, it can be worn as a sheer wash of color, layered for depth and dimension or swirled together to create a customized shade. Plus, the sleek gunmetal compact with crystal-studded metal charm has show-off appeal."

I love it, and know you will too. The Illuminator All Over Face Color is $35 at your Prescriptives counter and on their website, of course.

The Sephora Supermodel Kit.

Has Sephora gone and lost their mind? When I saw this beauty I thought wait. I see Smashbox. I see Stila. Why does the page say Sephora? Could it be a misprint?

Then I understood. Sephora put together the ultimate Supermodel Kit with some of the products needed to help make you look like a Supermodel. Well, not quite, but that is what I thought. These products were the actual products that the Sephora makeup artists used for Fashion Week Live. They put them all in a great glittery cosmetic bag too.

Wondering what is inside? Only the best, with a value of $145, for just $79, this Supermodel Kit is a must! The kit includes a Stila Lip Glaze in Brown Sugar, Make Up For Ever Diamond Shadow in Diamond Black 307, Smashbox Mini Travel Photo Finish Foundation Primer in Original, Smashbox O-GLOW, Dior Diorshow Mascara in Black 090, and a Sephora Blush Me! Mono in Abricot Plaisir 6.

Perfection!

Incoco Dry Nail Applique.

Last week I was honored to write a few posts over on eBeautyDaily for the lovely Christina. One of those incoco.pngposts was all about one of the best product inventions evah - the Incoco Dry Nail Applique!  The more I use these applique's, the more I love them.

Surf on over to eBeautyDaily to read all about them. Please do let me know if you have tried the Dry Nail Applique system from Incoco, and what you like/dislike about them.

If you have not tried these yet, get on over to Walgreens where you can pick up a pack of colored appliques for $5.99 or a French nail pack for $7.99. I picked up a French nail pack this afternoon, and can not wait to try those.

Truly, these are an invention that will only get better and better. Isn't technology + beauty amazing? I can not wait to see what the future holds.
