The Eye-scentials.

Cute. Cute. Cute.

bj_eyesentials.jpgI don't read enough about Bourjois on the beauty blogs, so I thought I should throw in my newest find from them. It is called the Eye-scentials. Actually, Le Petite Black Dress Eye-scentials.

What it is, is a kit with 3 of Bourjois regular line, best-selling eye products in a cute zippered vinyl pouch. In the pouch is Maxi Frange Black Mascara; Eye Shadow Trio Argent for a perfect gray smoky eye; and Sourcil Au Beau Fixe, a clear eyebrow gel that tames even the unruliest of brows.

You can Besame anytime!

Oh yes!  Kiss me (well, my lips) with Besame's Enriched Lip Glaze anytime. I am loving this latest addition to their line of cosmetics.

besame_glaze.jpgFirst off, if you haven't been properly introduced to Besame Cosmetics, let me tell you, it has about the most beautiful packaging I have ever seen. The products are beaming with gold and engraved with red enamel - absolutely stunning. The line is quite reminiscent of the early days of makeup. All of the containers are practically keepsakes. They are very stylish - where modern styling meets old world beauty.

My favorite product is, of course, the Enriched Lip Glaze. It has the most wonderful coconut-vanilla scent and flavor. I am so loving this lip gloss. When I applied it for one of the first times, my husband came close to me and asked why I smelled so good. So, I gave him a quick kiss. He thought it was nice - very nice in fact. He has never noticed a lip gloss flavor ever before - so it must be very unique.

The Rarest of Minerals.

Yes, we have all heard of Bare Escentuals and their bareMinerals line by now, right? And we all know about how the minerals in makeup are only a good thing - and quite beneficial.

be_rare.jpgWell, I have been experiencing the ultimate in minerals with a rare combination of minerals from Bare Escentuals and their RareMinerals Skin Revival Treatment .

This is quite different than what you might expect. It is almost like a makeup, as in the way you apply it and for the fact that it does come in shades,that you use right before bed. I buff on these miracle minerals (I am using the clear formula) right as I get into bed. They buff on simply with the sponge that comes attached to the jar, which is great. It is even easy to detach and wash too.

Onto my results. When I first applied it, I did it in front of the mirror. Immediately, I would notice a more air brushed, matte finish to my skin. This in itself is a reason for loving it because my skin didn't look so scary as a freshly cleansed, makeup free face sort of does.
