Ready for the holidays? Stuff some stockings with these...
I've been drooling over these pans of dual color from Cargo for ages. Finally I got my hands on a few to test and let me tell you, they are just as wonderful as I imagined. Colors are glossy and shiny and easy to apply with a finger or lip brush- I prefer my finger. Slick and slippery, the colors are beautiful for any skin tone or shade, creating a high shine. Even the colors I thought would be dark turned out to be subtle and pretty on my naturally dark lips.
I'd love to receive any of these pans of gloss for the holidays- what a great little gift for a friend, sister, mother who loves beauty products. You cannot chose a bad color duo, every single color is beautiful alone or mixed together. Go to Sephora, my favorite store in the whole world, here for more.
Pretty Girl Makeup- don't you just love the name? Conjures up something compltely girly and flirty!
Pretty Girl lipstick comes in a totally clear case which I really liked. It's almost futuristic and cool. I tried the shade "Day at the Spa" which is a light frosty pink with a nude undertone. It's a gorgeous color- right up my alley. I don't look good at all in dark plummy colors and always go directly to the pale pinks, peaches and nude shades. This is a long wearing formula and topped with "You're a Doll" lip gloss, the resulting color is a neutral pink and is very complimentary. Pretty Girl, indeed.
For the bath and shower lover, check out the Pretty Girl scrubs and shea butter cream. Honey, Rough Me Up is a gritty, cucumber scented scrub that will leave skin exfoliated and ready to be slathered with Honey, Butter Me Up. I am a huge shea butter fan and this cream will make your skin not only smell good, but will be ulta-velvety. I admire women who decide to start up a business and make a go at creating products. Christina Friedman is the face behind the name of Pretty Girl, kudos to you Christina for making these fun cosmetics with a feminine feel to them! P.S. I love the stylish chickie with her poodle on the products!
Any girly girl would love to get a nice lipstick/lipgloss combo or the Scrub/Shea Butter in her stocking this holiday!
Cream Eyeshadow sets come in five different shades and include a base color, contrasting shades, a cream liner and a metallic shade to highlight or add sparkle. Oh, and a dual sided brush. This set makes it easy to create a really dramatic eye. The consistency is perfect and the shades blend nicely together. The bottom of the pan of shadow labels each shade for you so you don't have to guess which shade goes where on your eyelid.
The makeup lover in your life will adore this set. DuWop is a young, fresh brand that I think is just right for hip women of all ages.
Lash Lacquer is a conditioning mascara on one end and the other end features a topcoat that is water resistant and smudge proof. I really don't like waterproof/water resistant mascaras because I usually have a hard time washing it off. I end up afraid my eyelashes will fall out from scrubbing. No fear with this one, it comes off without a lot of effort.
Lash Lacquer makes lashes long and the topcoat adds lots of shine. You can add more coats to build up the mascara for thicker lashes. This is a more natural mascara. As I've often expressed, I like my lashes to be as fake as a Las Vegas showgirl. However, when I'm just hanging out I prefer a natural, clean faced look helped along by a light pink blush, a clear lipgloss and mascara that will make my blonde lashes nice and dark. This one totally fits the bill. I tested the shade of Carbon Black which is as dark as ebony.
Lastly, I tried out Ice, a glorious shade of pale pink powder, the color of a ballerina's tutu with a shimmer. It's really beautiful on a face done in shades of silver and pink, add a little bit of this powder over cheeks for a winter sparkle. This is one of those products that is fun to use and adds a little something special to a face done up for the holidays.
