Unsung Makeup Heroes: Have a Cookie, Sugar, with Benefit Sugar Cookie Lipstick

Do me a quick favor and check your blush stash, boo. If you find enough peaches to bake a cobbler, then I’d like you to meet my new go-to girl, >Benefit Silky Finish Lipstick in Sugar Cookie ($18).

The color — a warm, shiny peach with flecks of gorgeous gold — has been around for a while as a permanent member of Benefit’s Silky Finish Lipstick line. Like the other Silky Finish gals, she’s got a thin, creamy texture (very hydrating, to boot) that glides on slick and smooth, and I think she looks GREAT paired with peach blushes like Benefit Georgia, NARS Orgasm, MAC Sunbasque, MAC Margin and MAC Peaches.

Do you remember the sparkly glitter from last week’s look with >MAC Lipgelee in Resort Life (part of the Venomous Villains release)? — how it ended up all over the place? Well, Sugar Cookie isn’t messy like that at all. Her golden glitter stays put, but all is not peaches in the garden of golden glitter.

Sadly, this Sugar Cookie disappears faster than…sugar cookies, or the box of toffee macadamia nut chocolates I opened last night right before bed.

I have to reapply Sugar Cookie often — about every two hours or so — unless I layer it atop a nude lip liner, which almost doubles her wear time. /> (…)

Zoya Fall 2010 – Wicked & Wonderful Collection : Swatches Part 1

Good evening Ladies !

Just finished swatching loads of nail polishes ! My nails hurt but my heart feels warm and fuzzy looking at all these beautiful colors !

This here is the new Wicked & Wonderful collection for Fall by Zoya ! Its a fulfilling mix of solids and sparkles. Of course the sparkles are Wicked and the creamy solids are the Wonderful ones.

The six Wonderful shades include
Kelly - Gray ( concrete gray)
Stacy - Mahogany Red ( wine red )
Burke - Sienna Red ( pink red )
Kristi - Crimson Red ( summery red )
Cola - Desert Sand Red ( henna-ish brown)
Shawn - Myrtle Green ( Sap green)

Right off the bat I feel in love with Shawn. Nothing to do with the name – there actually was a really cute guy in my class by that name. Very funny, very sweet guy but married. Anyhoo, this Shawn spoke to my green grass loving side.

But later while swatching I had a huge girl crush on Kristi - shez a perfect summer red. One of my all time favorite red shades is America by Zoya . But Kristi gives her a stiff competition.

Cola and Stacy fall right into the category of my favorite Fall shades. I’m sure I’ll be wearing them a lot ! Soon hopefully.

Burke was the only shade that I didn’t care for much. But I’m sure she’ll find a home in someone else’s heart ! Shez real sweet.

Zoya nail polishes are available on their website here .

LA Splash Liquid Eyeliner – Abyss : Review & Swatches

For the longest time now I’ve been fixated on finding a liquid eyeliner that gives the wet look. You know, like the eyeliner is forever wet looking though it actually is dry and will not smudge. Turns out a liquid eyeliner with teeny tiny silver reflects has the power to create an illusion of a moist eyeliner.

And I found all that for $6.99 (or less) with the LA Splash Liquid Eyeliner in Abyss.

LA Splash Liquid Eyeliner   Abyss : Review & Swatches 4933175972 693abe282e z
Abyss is a black eyeliner with microscopic silver reflects. No glitter here, at least not in this shade. It is nothing like the Urban Decay Glitter Eyeliners. I’d say they are more on the lines of MAC Super Slick Eyeliners and can give it a run for its money any day ! The product comes in a really tall packaging. Most of the height is from the application wand. The brush is tiny and sharp – perfect to create defined, precise lines. Dry time – a mere few seconds ! Over all – a spotless record.

SkinB5 Vitamin B5 Based Acne Treatment

If you are like everyone else who has suffered with an acne problem over the years then you’ve tried almost every acne treatment product that is advertised on television and in magazines. As you’ve found out from your own experience, none of these products really work. The reason that none of them work is that they try to treat the results of the problem instead of trying to stop it at it’s source.

Acne products that are applied directly on the skin are seriously flawed because they are designed to try to treat the acne problem in a way that just makes no scientific sense. The problem stems from one’s body chemistry being out of balance not from what is happening on the skin at a surface level.

This may sound discouraging but it’s actually very good news for anyone whose face is covered in pimples or zits. Why? Because it means that no matter how many times you have failed with acne products that are applied on the skin, it does not mean that you can’t be cured of the problem. It just means you’ve been using the wrong thing to try to solve it.

The big key to stopping the formation of pimples on your skin once and for all is SkinB5 Vitamin B5 Based Acne Treatment . Using this product helps to stop the overproduction of oil inside the body which is what causes the issue in the first place.

Vitamin B5 is the principle ingredient in this product. But that doesn’t mean that you can get the same results by buying this vitamin from a store such as Vitamin World. Taking this vitamin on it’s own is not that effective because it is water soluble. SkinB5 uses time release capsules to overcome the water soluble problem to make sure that your body is getting enough of this vitamin throughout the whole day to prevent acne.

Along with B5 Vitamins, this product also includes B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, Vitamin A, and Zinc. It’s this combination of ingredients combined with the time release power of the tablets which makes it so effective.

The only other thing that compares to how successful SkinB5 is at stopping acne is Accutane. But when comparing the pros and cons of SkinB5 to Accutane it will become clear which one is the right choice for you.

Accutane is extremely costly, requires a prescription from your doctor, and is linked with many bad side effects. SkinB5 is affordable, doesn’t require a prescription, and doesn’t have any side effects.

Some other acne treatment products include the “Acne Free In 3 Days” Guide & the “Acne No More” Guide . Both of these guides can be purchased and downloaded online immediately and they come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee with a full money back refund available. What this means is that you can try them out to see if they will work for you and if they do not, you can very easily get your investment back.
