Priyanka Chopra’s Red Lips

Beautiful bold red lips! Sometimes during the holidays it’s the only time women will even dare to wear the ultra classic red lip.  Recently at the Emmy’s Priyanka Chopra’s Makeuo Artist Yumi Mori used a spectacular red.

This is such a great shade.  so if you don’t have a red this is a very strong option for you.

I wanted to celebrate woman and her desires. I wanted these fragrances to enhance an aspect of her personality, or perhaps reveal something about her that no one knew before, maybe not even her, tell a secret, a story. I want to give women the means to express themselves and to delight in their femininity.

Kat Von D Lock-It

 

 

IMG_1828 (2)I have been testing some new Kat Von D Lock -It products and wanted to give my feedback about each product I have been testing.

 

First, let me tell you I LOVE the Kat Von D brand.  The products consistently deliver amazing results.  I have tried a large number of products and am always pleased with my purchase.  Great eyeshadows, foundation, lip products and so much more.  This will just be a review of my newest products from Kat Von D.

Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer $26

This is a full coverage concealer.  Perfect for people that struggle with dark circles.  I also tested this as a concealer base and it performed pretty good.  the doe foot applicator has a pointed tip.  This pointed tip allows you to get the concealer into smaller areas like the corner of the eye or up to the lash line.  The product lasted all day on me even in the summer heat.

If you struggle with significant wrinkles under the eye you would want to use a sponge like a Beauty Blender to blot the excess concealer so the product won’t crease.

 

I also love the fact there is so many shades.  If you struggle finding the perfect shade of concealer, you should absolutely look at this one as  your new concealer.

Kat Von D Lock-it Edge Concealer Brush $24

This is a very different shape than a “classic concealer brush”.  This is a little thicker and a little shorter.  Honestly, all companies should make a concealer brush in this shape.  It blends beautifully.  The only reason for the classic concealer brush is to lay down product, however, most concealers have a doe foot for application so the brush needs to blend.  I also love the long sexy handle.  It feels so nice in the hand. The brush can be used to blend concealer under eye, it can also lay down concealer on lid or around other discoloration.  I also tested it to lay down a base color shadow and it performed nicely.  I’m quite happy with this brush and if you only buy 1 thing from this review buy this brush.

 

Kat Von D Lock-it Setting Powder Brush $38

I LOVE a Tulip shaped face brush.  A tulip shaped brush is perfect to get powder into all the contours of the face.  You can angle the brush to get into even small areas of the face like around the nose.   Many people believe the smaller the brush the more control you have. Due to the size of the brush this can also be used for bronzer.  Much like the concealer brush this also has that long sexy handle that feels nice in the hand. This brush will be perfect for anyone who is looking for a soft and easily controlled application.

 

Kat Von D Lock-it Setting Powder $30

This lightweight loose powder will be perfect for anyone that has normal to oily skin.  The packaging is very luxurious and the attention to detail really shows with this packaging.  Even the holes to let the powder out is in the shape of a star.  This would be beautiful sitting on someone’s vanity.  The only person that possibly won’t love this product is someone with dry aging skin.

I’M NOT MAKING OREO MASCARA

So today I read an article on Refinery29 about how to DIY Oreo Mascara.  Yes, you read that correct another DIY project.  This one involving that delicious cream filled chocolate cookie resulting in something for your lashes.

How would anyone think this was a good idea?  The plus is you don’t use the cream in the cookie for your DIY mascara and they suggest scooping the cream out to eat.

 

HERE‘s the article.
