It's Not So Bad Being Blue!

Blue Mascara was all the rage in the 80's. There were so many shades. Electric blue, teal blue, blue-black, glittery blue... I could go on and on. But it wasn't until a few weeks ago that I was re-introduced to a blue mascara. And in case you haven't heard yet, it is Bad Gal Blue from Benefit.

super thick, long and lush. Bad Gal is one of my favorite mascaras.

The blue in Bad Gal Blue is subtle. The first time I used it I coasted my lashes with a light coat of the original Bad Gal in black, and then applied Bad Gal Blue on top. The result was beautiful, and my eye appeared wider and yes, even whiter.

Seeing that the effect was subtle, the next time I used Bad Gal Blue, I used it on it's own. The result was equally as beautiful over my naturally dark lashes.

If you are looking to add a little color to your lashes, while still having thick, full of life, fluttery eyelashes, then you really should give Bad Gal Blue a try.

Bad Gal Blue is $19.00 at Benefit Cosmetics.




A Burst of Bronze!

sunburst_bottle.jpgI was so excited on Friday to let you know about the QVC hour with Tarte Cosmetics, that I forgot to tell you about one of their brand new products. And it shouldn't come as a surprise that it is a unique addition to their ever-growing line.

This product promises a burst of bronze, called appropriately so, Sunburst. Sunburst is a beaded,sunburst_lotion.jpg bronzing facial moisturizer. And it is in fact, beaded. When you squeeze out the white lotion, you will notice very small, almost grainy looking, bronzed beads. These beads burst upon contact, tinting the moisturizer as you apply and rub in.

It really is a unique product. The overall result is a light golden, bronzed look. You can always apply a bit more of the moisturizer to the apples of your cheeks and top of your nose for that just in from the sun look.

A few more things to mention about Sunburst. The formula is oil-free for those in which that is a concern, and the it is also water resistant, which will be perfect for warmer weather. You know how terrible it is to see streaking makeup, albeit bronzer on a hot day when you can't help but sweat.

Sunburst is $28.00 from Tarte Cosmetics.
