Makeup Review, Swatches: Marc Jacobs Beauty Spring 2015 Collection At Sephora

Pinterest
Ever since its debut late last year, Marc Jacobs Beauty has been on the fast track to becoming one of the go-to lines to be found in many makeup bags. The Spring 2015 line, sold exclusively at Sephora, delivers the ultimate lip-service with new, captivating shades ranging from sheer nudes, to every type of red you could dream of!
Le Marc Lip Creme ($30)
Available in 20 gorgeous hues, inspired by men and women that have influenced Marc over the years, the new Le Marc Lip Creme is a luxurious, creamy lipstick that actually lasts! Rich and velvety, it delivers a punch of vibrant pigment, gliding on with ease. We all hate messing up a perfected pout after a mere sip of wine, or bite of pizza. These lip cremes actually do last! The pigmented colors sink deep into the skin and leave lips saturated for hours. Watch them go from a creamy burst of color, to a light lip stain as the night progresses. Touch-ups are a thing of the past. Fun fact: a magnetic pull makes them close in a snap.

Review, Ingredients: Biore Charcoal Collection: Pore Penetrating Soap Bar, Minimizer, Deep Cleaning Strips - Best New Products To Reduce Pores

Who would have thought that the beauty world could love something so dirty. Okay, it’s not dirty in a sense that it’s bad for your skin, but not all natural ingredients necessarily look appealing. Nevertheless, if it promises to make our skin look blemish-free with less pores, then we’ll happily slather, scrub and rub on whatever it takes to have our skin looking its best.

Bioré Skincare Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser, Self Heating One Minute Mask With Natural Charcoal

Last year we were introduced to charcoal, one of the hottest ingredients in skincare to naturally draw out impurities without irritating your skin. Natural black charcoal attracts dirt and oil like a magnet, making it the ultimate shine-reducing and oil-controlling ingredient any acne-prone and oily-faced gal could appreciate and adore.

Next time you’re perusing down your usual skincare aisle, make sure to spot these three new items just added to the Biore Charcoal Collection: Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar, Charcoal Pore Minimizer, Deep Cleaning Charcoal Pore Strips. You’ll be able to deep clean, cut down pore size and keep your skin looking shine-free with cutting-edge new formulations for healthy, clean and smooth skin. (If your skin hasn’t already tried the magic that is the Self Heating One Minute Mask, then you certainly are missing out on some charcoal wizardry.)

Charcoal – How Does It Work To Remove Impurities? What Is Activated Charcoal?

Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar: If you’re a fan of anything bar-form, the and still want to indulge in the power of charcoal, then this bar is perfect for you… or your man — it looks like a hunk of actual charcoal (and is really comfortable to hold), so he just might use it. The dual action formula exfoliates while deep cleaning, drawing out dirt and oil for a 2.5 times better clean compared to using your basic cleanser. Jojoba beads and peppermint leave the skin feeling refreshed and gently exfoliated for significantly cleaned skin.

Charcoal Pore Minimizer: Minimize and unclog pores and with this pore minimizing cleanser. (The packaging alone is a marvel; a simple press of the button dispenses just enough cleanser to get the job done.) Natural charcoal is found in this advanced formula that activates on contact with water to draw out deep down impurities. Guess what leaves your skin feeling super-smooth too? Microcrystals. They’ll visibly make your pores look smaller just after one use! Use this bad-boy up to 2-3 times per week.

Deep Cleaning Charcoal Pore Strips: Those iconic Pore Strips now come packed with charcoal. For the first time Biore has added natural charcoal powder to their Pore Strips, reducing oil for a full 24-hours. You’ll be able to remove impurities from those clogged pores with a propriety c-bond technology and potent charcoal, along with soothing witch hazel and tea tree oil to refine pores and diminish their appearance over time. Good riddance!

Available at select food, drug and mass merchant stores. For more information, visit www.Biore.com.

I absolutely love seeing all of the new nail looks and upcoming trends each season. This year at the NYFW Fall/Winter 2015 shows, we were given a treat with everything from the boldest nail art with chains and beading to the most subtle nude colors and everything in between. There was a look for everyone, no matter your style.

Just how daring are you with your nails? CND, a leader in professional nail care took it to an amazingly new level for the season at Opening Ceremony, The Blonds, and Libertine.

To compliment the designer’s runway looks at The Blonds, CND created unique and over the top nails with handcrafted and dramatic embellishments with CND® Liquid & Powder and BRISA® Gel. Then, layers of high-shine color were applied using CND® SHELLAC® brand 14+ day nail color and VINYLUX® Weekly Polish. They were then accented with gold chrome accessories, textural elements and layering created serious dimension, while couture camouflage in industrial tones were embellished with hand-crafted molten paillettes. The bold 3D designs, which took a total of over 900 combined hours to create, were pierced, draped, laced, torn and burnt, perfectly accessorizing the Blonds theatrical collection.”

For the Libertine show, CND created golden nails with an array of unconventional materials including studs, shark teeth and chains “reminiscent of dripping gold”.

At Opening Ceremony, celebrity nail artist Naomi Yasuda and the CND team created nails with horizontal and vertical striping techniques using VINYLUX® Weekly Polish in an array of heavily pigmented Kodak-inspired colors including red, yellow, blue and purple. A decoupage technique was implemented to lay Jonze’s impactful black and white photography on the nail.

In contrast to the dramatic, nude nails were all the rage on the runways as well.

For a “modern and carefree” look at Rachel Zoe, nail tech Sunshine Outing used a custom white opal polish, named “Zoe” (not available for retail). To get the look, Outing applied ZOYA Get Even Base Coat to make sure nails were smooth for applications. Then depending on desired intensity, applied two to three coats of ZOYA in Zoe and finished with ZOYA Armor Topcoat and Fast Drops.

A little sparkle was added to nude nails at the Jenny Packham show. Michelle Saunders for essie created a pretty look by applying First Base coat, followed by Adore-a-Ball. To create dew drops , she placed sporadic dots of Tarte Deco followed by Summit of Style to each nail. Lastly she applied a sporadic dot of Summit of Style to each nail and finished with Second Shine Around.

The nails at the Alexander Wang Fall/Winter 2015 show were created to match the “army of darkness” vibe from the collection. Michelle Saunders for essie did a ghostly obscure nail using two coats of Jazz, completed with Matte About You Top Coat.

The bare faced models at NYFW were a big contrast to some of the glammed up ladies we saw strut the runway this season. A few designers opted for flawless, clean skin and let the emphasis be on clothing.

For the Tanya Taylor show, Uzo, International Lead Makeup Artist for NARS wanted to create a “subtle, but modern palette comprised of luminous skin, muted eyes and rose pink lips to show off the season’s marine-inspired array of holographic prints, spinal embroidery, and graphic stripes.” To give skin a natural glow, she used NARSskin Luminous Moisture Cream, NARSskin Aqua Gel Oil-Free Moisturizer, and NARSskin Total Replenishing Eye Cream to prep the skin. The Pore Refining Primer was used before adding All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation and Radiant Creamy Concealer and Pressed Powder to set the makeup. Cheeks were dabbed with the Copacabana Illuminator and Copacabana Multiple (for lighter skin tones) and Laguna Illuminator and Souh Beach Multiple (for darker skin tones). The goal was to let the skin shine through to reveal a dewy glow topped off with a nude lip using Bangkok Pure Matte Lipstick, Madere Pure Matte Lipstick, and Biscayne Park Satin Lip Pencil.

At Creatures of the Wind there was a clean, perfected matte skin with no shine accompanied by a lot of mascara. The mascara was “pasty, a bit dry, and deliberate” to reflect the 1970’s and the 1920’s. NARS Director of Global Artistry, James Boehmer was inspired by “Americana” and actresses Anjelica Houston and Sissy Spacek. On the face he used All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation, Soft Velvet Loose Powder, and Radiant Creamy Concealer. For eyes Audaciouds Mascara and for brows he used the Oural Brow Gel.

The makeup for Milly never ceases to amaze! And with Romy Soleimani using Kevyn Aucoin for Beauty.com the looks were pure and perfect. Used first was Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Enhancer followed by subtle eyes using The Eyesahdow Sinle in 108 and 109 and lined with The Eye Pencil Prematif in Basic Black and The Eye Definer for the inner rim of the eyes. Lined again with The Precision Liquid Liner and finished with a coat of The Curling Mascara to the lashes.

For the Honor show, Romy used Kevyn Aucoin for Beauty.com cosmetics to show a “classic Catherine Deneuve look with a bit of an updated 70’s reference…inspired by a forest setting of lush backgrounds and mushrooms.” Skin here was also prepped with The Sensual Skin Enhancer and followed by a dab of The Loose Shimmer Shadow in Citrine and topped with a layer of The Curling Mascara.

Makeup Review, Swatches: Clinique 2 -in-1 Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer

There’s nothing better than a beauty product that does double duty. Like a foundation that also works as your concealer. Clinique has come to the rescue with the introduction of the  2-in-1 Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer. This foundation is made up of a formula that will cover all your flaws and blemishes and promises “full coverage, without the weight.”

Review, Swatches: Cliniwque Hello Cheekbones Spring 2015 Makeup Colection – Sculptionary Contouring Palette, Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight, Contour

My initial thoughts, after putting the foundation on my hand, was that it was going to be rather heavy. However, when I dotted the foundation on my face and blended, it was anything but. I have combination/oily skin and it wore nicely all day and stayed put on my face. This product knows what your skin requires! Oily skin? No problem, the formula soaks up every last drop of oil. Dry? Your skin will have all the hydration it needs.

Makeup Review, Swatches: Clinique 2 -in-1 Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer

Beyond Perfecting 2- in-1 Foundation + Concealer has a built in doe foot applicator to apply product precisely where you need it. Under the eyes, or on the face, you get direct application and no mess. There’s no more worry about having too much product on your hands, the applicator does all the work for you.  As a tip, I always tell my clients to start with less product and add more as needed for a perfect application every time.

I was not always a fan of Clinique foundations, but this product changed even this jaded Senior Editor’s opinion. I give it two thumbs up!
