 Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Monday! I love Mondays! Today’s post and video feature the brand elvis+elvin skincare. I tried a charcoal bar for cleansing and a dual activation mask that was really interesting.

This mask though! It comes in two parts and you mix them together in a bowl and then it becomes this super gelatinous consistency that you spread on the skin and let it dry before peeling off. On hind sight, I wish I would have applied this with my mask fan brush.

Watch the video to learn the details and get your own elvis+elvin skincare to help transition from hot sweaty summer skin to dry needs more moisture Fall skin!

Overall, I liked it.

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Say hello and welcome to the month of August! This year, 2017, is now officially more than half over and Christmas is only 146 days away.

With that in mind and upcoming holiday events and photos – it may be time to try a new face product, so meet FACE atelier Ultra skin foundation.

Many many thanks to them for sending me a sample in the color 6.  I love the lightweight feel and  texture. The finish is beautiful and dries down to a soft powder that can be built up from sheer to full coverage. I really like the look and  feel, though, I experienced a series of pimples and breakouts along my lower cheeks and jawline.

Gack! I really like the product but won’t be able to continue using it because it took a full week to heal the breakout and I had to work like crazy during that time and I can’t risk another breakout. I know for me, when I saw that the silicone was a major ingredient in this PETA approved product, I knew right then that I was risking a pimple or two.

It’s worth a try, and a sample can be purchased from their website so you can try it before committing to the $50.00 full size price.

Meet Ultra Skin – the ultimate lightweight foundation!  Its
silicone-based formula perfects the skin with a long-lasting satin
finish with light to medium buildable coverage. The creamy, soufflé-like
texture produces an airbrush-like result and is perfect if you want a
foundation that can be applied like a moisturizer without compromising
performance.  Ultra Skin’s 11 shades cover the lightest to richest
complexions and are color-matched to award-winning Ultra Foundation.
There are three new shades – .5, 8.5,11.5 – that can be also used to
adjust Ultra Foundation shades.
No primer needed!  It’s built into Ultra Skin’s
sophisticated formula that also has soft-focus properties, diminishing
the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The flawless, satin finish doesn’t
need powder to set and thanks to the silicone-based formula, it’s ideal
for mature, troubled or sensitive skin. Read more about silicones.
Ultra Skin works in perfect harmony with the
FACE atelier’s complete complexion range, including Ultra Foundation’s
beloved adjusters: 0-, 0+, 0++ and Heat. The pump applicator and tube
make it perfect for travel or a pro kit. Suitable for all skin types,
water and sebum resistant Ultra Skin performs brilliantly in hot, humid
and arid climates.

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Monday and hello to the last day of July. Whoa …where does the time go! School starts this week for my cub!

In fact, everything starts this week!  Ahhh! I’m ready for it!

So today I have a video with a chit chatty update on things going on for Makeup University.

How about you? How has your summer been going?

I made this video while getting ready – and share some updates along the way!

I just received these samples of the makeup color story LORAC did with Disney and the reboot of Beauty and the Beast.

Remember to let me know in the comments – if you were going to buy a film makeup color story – what products do you want to buy?

I’m
asking for your help so as I develop the makeup color story for BEARLY
film, Jael, ZBoy and Nascar Nights – I want to be sure and create the
top products that people are most interested in buying!

Personally, I live in bronzer and gloss – so those are top items for me to create! Looking forward to your thoughts!

These items are available on Amazon – if you need free shipping:
Lipgloss $34.00 http://amzn.to/2tzhNki
Cheeks $28.00 http://amzn.to/2utaA9X

Hi ya Gorgeous!Today is more than Saturday or Caturday,  it’s National Lipstick Day!

Did you know that  lipstick was not rationed during the war? The Queen of England had a shade made just for  her in a red that matched her robes and sash, it’s called Balmoral after her childhood home in Scotland.

I am a lipgloss lover, though today, we celebrate lipstick. I have some beautiful samples to share with you from several brands.  I love that lipstick can elevate a low mood as well as be the perfect accessory to a power suit or party dress!

 

In this photo from left to right is the Black Opal lip crayon with a super rich matte color. Catrice lipstick is a popular European brand and the coverage is full with a tone of color and moisture. Next is Pacifica, one of the best vegan beauty brands out there!

The Pacifica liquid mineral lipstick is smooth and well wearing on the lip.  I have two colors from Essence Cosmetics in their matt matt matt line, there is a nude beige tone and then a warm mauve tone –  these lipsticks are matte and buttery on the mouth – not drying at all! In the photo, the next lip stain from Alima Pure is new to me and I’m in love with this soft tint with lots of moisture!  It’s perfect for gals going back to school!

Finally in the photo you see the two Lorac Alter Ego lip stains in Activist and Secret Agent. I’m a fan of this brand, and these lip stains pack a powerful long wearing tint that is also moisturizing that doesn’t build up on the mouth.

 

Finally, how do you apply your lipstick? Sure, it’s easy to bullet it on but if you take the extra step of applying with a precision lip brush, like this one from Royal Langnickel in the Moda Metallics collection you will have a longer lasting application with super precise detail to the cupid bows and corners of the mouth.

You should try one and be sure and get a couple, one for your home, purse and work/school space!

Final thought, remember that today, MAC Cosmetics is giving away a free lipstick! Go get one!

Hi ya GorgeousHow’s your Monday now? Or should I say, how’s your summer? Here in Arizona, the summer is in full broil and school for the cub starts back in 3  short weeks …or are they short? He is definitely ready to go back and see his friends which brings to mind the question that year round school, with a 2 week break in between semesters would do just fine. On to the makeup!

I recently received some very lovely samples from LORAC of their color story collection for the reboot of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.

Something to know going forward, I am ride or die for the original
1990’s animated version and none to thrilled about another warmed over
version of an Oscar winning trophy of a film.  In short, I have not seen the film yet, and when it arrives on Netflix, I will let you know my thoughts.

In the meantime, I think that LORAC has knocked it out of the park again, with Disney, and another amazing, collector edition of a makeup color story for a film. I was SO impressed with the Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales collection ,though this is just as stunning.

 

I have the eyeshadow pallet, cheek color palette, lipglosses and lipsticks and I’m beyond delighted! The colors are everyday perfect and if you know LORAC products, you know how soft, silky, smooth, blendable, pigmented, wet or dry they are!

 

I love all of the lip colors and the lipsticks or lip glosses can be worn alone, with liner, paired together or mixed and matched!

If you are a fan of anything Disney, Belle, Beast, the film or LORAC and special editions, rush to get these now because who knows how long they will be around!
