Not Just an Ordinary Bronzer.

Like the title says, this is no ordinary Bronzer. Why, it is GlowFusion Micro-Tech Intuitive Active Bronzer - so it cannot be ordinary.

Fusion Beauty's products, particularly those of Glow Fusion, always perplex me. There is just so much science behind their products, that I sometimes wonder - is it hype? Or are these so called "revolutionary" products really different?

Fusion Beauty's GlowFusion Bronzer is formulated with their M-Tox - a special blend of naturally derived ingredients that hinder muscle movement.  M-Tox. Is it the naturally derived alternative to Botox? Well, that should be a post in itself, so excuse my question.

"This featherweight pressed bronzer creates a gorgeous glow while softly restoring your youthful lit-from-within radiance. Invisiskin delivers additional antioxidant botanicals including rice bran and honey extract into the skin and keeps skin hydrated and protected for up to 24 hours, while a soft focus effect imparts a creamy texture and diffuses light to soften imperfections. It targets the expression lines while inhibiting muscle contractions to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and rejuvenates your youthful radiance while protecting your skin from free radicals that expedite premature aging."

I just find it interesting that a blend of ingredients such as M-Tox be used in a makeup product. I do agree that the colors look pretty, and that this bronzer isavailable in three shades: Golden, Luminous, and Sunshine. Each bronzer retails for a hefty price tag of $39.

Are you a Fusion Beauty believer? And if you have used this, what are your results with GlowFusion Bronzer?

Eye Must Have - from Sue Devitt.

I have not used much from Sue Devitt, though I fell in love with her Microquatic Blue Primer when I used it a few years ago. Yet, there is more to love, and a great way for me to get re-introduced is with this Eye Must Have Collection. And this collection is a Today's Special Value, today, over on QVC.

Eye Must Have Collection includes:

  • eye intensifier pencil in Tanzania, a bronze
  • eye intensifier pencil in Ava, a black lavender
  • volumizing and thickening mascara in Hong Kong, a black
  • EZ eye rollerball eye shadow in Kouri, a champagne
  • Pencil sharpener
Sold separately, these products would add up to $87, but for this value, it is just $36.28. Wow!

My Summer Shadows.

After playing on end with different shadow combinations, I have found my perfect Summer Eye Shadows. Well, two, actually. Two palettes. Make that ten shadows - perfect for Summer.

Each of these Cargo Eye Shadow Palettes contain five separate, coordinated shades. The Paradise Island  palette, pictured on the left, is full of rosey, pink bronzes and nudes. While Ibiza, the palette on the right, contains more neutral bronzes.

Sometimes I simply sweep one or two shades over my eyes' and sometimes use all five. They are simply beautiful, and run the gamut from sheer, matte, to shimmery, and full of color.

Each palette is $28 at Sephora.com.
