Cheeky fun

Vogue  and Sephora were so sweet and let me test the Hourglass Aura Cheek Stain in Flush. I was skeptical because I have never used a liquid blush that I actually liked before.  I prefer the powder compacts.  I was thrilled when after applying the blush with the applicator and rubbing in further with my fingers (you do have to do some blending with the product as it can come out heavy if you dispense too much at once), I was left with a fresh Spring glow on my cheeks. I think this product is perfect for travelling.  I’m going to be travelling a lot for my new job and really need to pack as light as possible.  This product eliminates the need for a brush which is really awesome! Thanks Hourglass for making such a convenient product that works.

Organic Foundation with a Twist

I was so luck to be able to test Josie Maran’s Argan Matchmaker Serum Foundation for Vougue Magazine. I couldn’t wait to get the foundation in the mail!

As a vintage lover who tries to be green in both my personal and professional life, I was excited to learn that the product not only contains organic ingredients but is also paraben free and vegan (PETA gave the product it’s seal of approval)!

The product comes in a great purse friendly size and glides on as smooth as silk.  It’s really light and reminds me of the tinted mousturizers products out there. I loved the subtle covereage and the way it glides over any imperfections.  My only concern was that when the chameleon like pigments  changed color to match my skin it was slightly darker than my skin tone.  I made sure to blend well and the end result was really great coverage without any of the normal ‘makeupy’ feel.

I’m definitely going to keep this product in my arsenal.
