Review, Swatches: FLOWER Beauty Spring 2014 Makeup Collection - Glisten Up! Highlighter Chubby, Perfect Canvas Créme Foundation,  Kiss Me Twice Lip & Cheek, Lipstick, Nail Polish - Become The New Face Contest!

Talking beauty is just what we do on a daily basis. But when you throw Drew Barrymore into the mix, then the conversation goes from a childhood friend’s cat-eye look, her favorite discontinued lipgloss shades to Chinese food (she’s a pregnant mama after all)!

Drew Barrymore FLOWER Beauty Line – Mascara, Lipstick, Eyeshadow, Foundation, Wal-Mart

Her cosmetic line, FLOWER Beauty, has proven itself as a makeup force to be reckoned with, available at all Wal-Mart store locations and online. But what Drew brings to her Spring 2014 line are new colors, formulations and textures that surpass even the most coveted high-end brands.

Drew was all aglow as she intuitively applied one of her new nude lipstick shades to both her lips and cheeks, and confessed that she wouldn’t know what to do if it wasn’t for her Skincognito Stick Foundation, as she ever-so efficiently swiped two yellow-based lines under her eyes, blended and looked blissfully bright-eyed and ready to go.

Although Drew admits that most days she goes for a natural-looking face (she likes Lip Service Lip Butter in Mauve Mimosa for day), she wants women everywhere (including her daughter, Olive, who has an Eyeshadow Chubby named after her, Olive My Love. Coolest mom ever!) to know that insecurity is not an option! And to see makeup as a way of enhancing one’s unique beauty to the world.

As Drew talked and asked us our favorite flowers, I swatched and swiped everything from the New Glisten Up! Highlighter Chubby, Perfect Canvas Créme Foundation and Kiss Me Twice Lip & Cheek Chubby. Just look at the swatches!

The Lip & Cheek Chubby provides buildable coverage for cheeks and lips with the best pigment! A Soft Focus Complex provides optical skin-smoothing benefits and silicone powder reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to help plump up skin.

The highlighters are great for the summer, since they are a dry formula to give you that dewy look without actually adding an unnecessary, shimmery layer to your skin. You can barely feel it’s even there!

Drew went on to talk about her favorite trend of the moment: nude lips! She adds new shades to her Lip Suede Velvet Lip Chubbys, Velvet Lip Colors and High-Shine Lip Colors for stay-put pigments. The formulas of these lip products are superb, and the nude shades won’t wash you out!

Drew prides herself and the company in finding the perfect moisture blend to make these lipsticks truly hydrating. Drew blames genetics for her perennially dry lips, but she doesn’t even have to apply lip balm first before one of her fave lip products!

Review: Sally Hansen I Heart Nail Art Contest: $2,000 Grand Prize Winner, 13 Nail Art Design Ideas, Swatches

Last night, I was on cloud nine. As you know, I have been mainly wearing Sally Hansen Salon Effects strips for nearly two years now, so it was an exciting night for me as nail art is just growing larger and larger within the nail community.

Shout out to Valley, as I see them as still remaining one of the best salons to go to for nail art. Sally Hansen just makes it so darn easy to DIY!

I saw my own design created with black and gold, and then two studs placed by tweezers and voilà… a masterpiece was created on my nail! This top coat dried in no time flat, and I walked the Glam Network‘s ‘Mani Glam Cam’ within minutes of being “nail-a-fied.”

GIVEAWAY: Christina Aguilera Royal Desire Fragrance – Makeup Look Contest: TOP 10 FINALISTS REVEALED And 50 Free Perfume Samples!

Pinterest

GIVEAWAY: Christina Aguilera Royal Desire Fragrance - Makeup Look Contest And 50 Free Perfume Samples!!

As women, we all have a uniquely rich air about us: We’re inquisitive, strong-minded, sensual, loving and, most importantly, incredibly desirable. In a sense, we’re all queens in our own right. Balancing both grace and influence with the utmost ease — at least we make it look that way. And no one knows that better than one of the most soulful singers — and epitome of femininity — Christina Aguilera. With a voice so incredibly powerful and an ever-changing look all her own, Christina Aguilera brings us her newest fragrance, Christina Aguilera Royal Desire.

Christina Aguilera knows the importance and power of women and the many roles they play. “With this scent, I wanted to create a truly sensory experience,” explains Christina, “and provide a moment every day where women could pamper themselves and feel sexy and beautiful…exuding the sensual elegance of a queen.”

GIVEAWAY: Christina Aguilera Royal Desire Fragrance - Makeup Look Contest And 50 Free Perfume Samples!!

Indulge in the royal splendor of this fragrance with notes of Japanese-influenced yuzu citrus and blackcurrent. Take a moment and engulf yourself in this musky scent as the fragrance crescendos into a floral masterpiece with touches of lily, honeysuckle and rose; a light, powdery sprinkle of iris rounds out the euphoric aromas, creating the most delicate yet striking fragrance — the perfect womanly (and royal) balance.

As the scent entraps you in your own royal exuberance, the fragrance’s flacon design alone will have you coveting this precious jewel. With a curvaceous design and regal textual outlines in rich browns and coquettish pinks, marvel at the regal magnificence found everywhere from the diamond-shaped cap to the fleur de le charm adornment. The silver charm is one of Christina’s favorite features and it comes in four collectible designs: a monogrammed heart, a fan, a kiss and the aforementioned fleur de le, which can be worn and attached to any bracelet and/or necklace.

A queen has many interests and desires and expresses herself in numerous ways, that’s why we’re having two giveaways! Here at BeautyStat, we’re excited to see what makeup looks our royal and loyal readers can come up with, inspired by the Christina Aguilera Royal Desire fragrance. Here are the Top 10 finalists for the Create Your Own Royal Desire Look Contest:

Meena Ramchandani

Here’s what Meena had to say about her Royal Desire-inspired look, “The above look was from my wedding day — and I truly felt like a queen. My friend, who is a makeup artist, used all MAC products. She then put a flower in my hair, which completed my queen look. Everyone said I looked like a princess that day!

AngelicEmbers77

Here’s what AngelicEmbers77 had to say about her Royal Desire-inspired look, “To achieve a Royal Desire makeup look I used a face primer followed by a full coverage glowy foundation, topped with a sheer dusting powder to simulate the radiant honeysuckle. Next, I used eye primer with a very sparkly lily white eyeshadow over my entire brow bone and corners of my eyes, then applied a very light dusting of a purple iris-colored shadow over my lids, winging it out a little in the creases. I used a liquid black eyeliner for the cat eye on the top lid and a volume-increasing mascara on both my top and bottom lashes. I then topped the look off with a royal-rose red matte lipstick.”

Agi B.

Here’s what Agi had to say about her Royal Desire-inspired look, “After I use sunscreen on my face, I applied Laura Gellar Spackle all over my face with Dr. Perricone No Foundation Foundation or Josie Moran Tinted Moisturizer. My eyes are topped with LG Tropics collection with more of the gold tone color. I applied Estée Lauder black eyeliner and ‘They Are Real’ Benefit mascara. I used Mally’s Bone eyeliner in between the small of my eyes, bow of my nose, chin and below my eyebrow bone to highlight. I then used MAC or Smashbox highlighter on my cheeks and right below the highlighter I used LG Tropics Baked Blush. I usually end with a light coral lip with gloss or just clear gloss.”

Christina Jeter (www.cjeter.com)

Here’s what Christina had to say about her Royal Desire-inspired look, “For my Royal Desire-inspired look I straightened my hair, used powder-based makeup (Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Powered Foundation), bronzer and Vaseline to highlight my smile. I wanted a glamorized, natural look to showcase my beauty.”

Dalia

Here’s what Dalia had to say about her Royal Desire-inspired look, “I wanted to create a sensual and loving look. With pink lipstick, a touch of shadow on the eyes and finishing off with a matte foundation: it’s a very simple and natural look. That’s how I create confidence — knowing that people aren’t looking at my makeup but at me. Still having that elegance of a queen.”

Davia Gorman

Here’s what Davia had to say about her Royal Desire-inspired look, “This is my ‘simply is stunning’ look. Sometimes it doesn’t take much to make a huge impression… I believe that beauty is for everybody and I try to keep my look the same — easy to recreate and it takes the mystery out of it! I used Stila’s In The Know Palette for eyes, LashFood Conditioning Liquid Liner and Drama Mascara, Pacifica Bronze Coconut and Pearls Bronzing Butter for my cheeks and Pacifica Color Quench Lip Tint in Blood Orange.”

Alexandra Johnson

Here’s what Alexandra had to say about her Royal Desire-inspired look, “Every woman wants to be like a queen and feel glamorous. I achieved my finished Royal Desire-inspired makeup look by sweeping my eyes with a pretty shimmery white- gold eyeshadow; I applied fake lashes and mascara to make my eyes pop. I then brushed my cheeks with a rose-colored blush, just to give them a hint of color, and used a highlighter all over my face. To top it off, I used a nude pink lipstick. That completes my Royal Desire look.”

Mindy Coffey

Here’s what Mindy had to say about her Royal Desire-inspired look, “I like to bring out my eyes a bit, but I like to go for a natural and glowing look as well.”

Donoma Redbird

Here’s what Donoma had to say about her Royal Desire-inspired look, “I was inspired by pictures I saw of yellow and orange honeysuckles and lilies. The products used were: Monistat Chafing Gel and Urban Decay Primer Potion on eyes; Motives Full Coverage Quad in Light as my foundation; MAC Studio Fix in C2, Mehron Coverage Wheel as concealer,
Elf Eyebrow Duo in Dark, NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk, Sugarpill Burning Heart Palette, Buck from the Urban Decay Naked Palette in the crease, Embark from MAC in the outer V, and Blanc Type from MAC as the highlight; for eyeliner I used Elf Cream Liner in Black and Maybelline Million Lashes mascara; for cheeks I used Girlatick Matte Bronzer, La Femme Blush in Peach Sparkle and a NYX highlighter from their Butt Naked Palette. For lips, NYX Lip Liner in Cappuccino, Elf Lipstick in Natural Nympth, and Revlon lipgloss.”

Valory R. Mohammed

Here’s what Valory had to say about her Royal Desire-inspired look, “I created my look by using simple, light makeup. A woman is truly beautiful when she uses makeup wisely.”

WINNERS: BeautyStat.com/Sally Hansen Spring Nail Polish Trends Contest

Pinterest

Finalists: BeautyStat.com/Sally Hansen Spring Nail Polish Trends Contest – Vote For Your Fave Now!

So many of you submitted wonderful looks for our Sally Hansen Nail Polish Competition! Our celeb judge TracyLee has reviewed all of the submissions and narrowed them down to the top twelve finalists!

Now it’s your turn to vote!

This year was all about colorful, textured, and definitely unconventional nails! TracyLee’s favorite spring nail trends encompass a variety of styles, patterns, and unlikely combinations. Enhance your opaques with bright aqua or tangerine designs, or try a new take on a French manicure with statement making reverse moons mani, in an unlikely color combination. Similarly, makeover that French
mani with pastel colored tips, and be sure to try the freshest neutral nudes as the backdrop to any nail look.

Neons are all the rage, especially when the coveted ombre hair trend recently made its debut on nails this season! We’re seeing dozens of neon color combos, especially when it comes to nail art. With so many colors to choose from, Spring 2012 is all about layering colors, textures, and patterns.

Participants were asked to submit a spring-inspired nail look they called their own. From neons, to glittered lacquers, with the season’s “more is more” nail philosophy, we really wanted them to ‘wow us’ with their own unique take on spring nails. Prticipants were allowed to enter their submission either through photo or video. Our nail expert TracyLee, (follow her on Twitter @LuxebyTracylee) chose the twelve finalists.

 

The Finalists:

Amoure T. Jones

Finalists: BeautyStat.com/Sally Hansen Spring Nail Polish Trends Contest – Vote For Your Fave Now!

This is what Amoure had to say about her nail look, “I adore spring colors and flowers so using these colors (coral and aqua blue) were a must. I took the aqua blue and swiped it on a diagonal giving me sort of a slanted French manicure. At the descending corner, I took a dotting tool and with the pinky-coral color placed four dots (2 on the top, 2 on the bottom) leaving enough space in the center of the dots for a rhinestone (about 1-2mm). Then I took some aqua blue rhinestones and placed one in the middle, four of them making a C formation from the flower like a stem. Used a top coat and let dry. It was super-simple and I love this mani because you can mix and match the colors, or put on as many flowers as you want. The possibilities are endless!

Jen Stephens

Finalists: BeautyStat.com/Sally Hansen Spring Nail Polish Trends Contest – Vote For Your Fave Now!

This is what Jen had to say about her nail look, “This is a kind of old Victorian meets mod floral kind of print that I remember seeing on Keds tennis shoes, hats, overalls, bags, and lots of stuff. To create this look you’ll need a nail art brush, dotting tool, a base color (I chose yellow), flower color and darker highlight (I used purple) & a light and dark green for the leaves. To create the flowers, I clumsily applied the light purple in flowery-shaped blobs using my doting tool. I created the leaves by making tiny almond shapes by the buds. Then I went back and highlighted the flowers using the smaller end of the dotting tool and created a “C” pattern; highlighted the leaves with a tiny bit of lighter green in the center. These were the official colors that I used. Orly in Green Apple, Sinful Colors in Exotic Green, Sinful Colors in Amethyst, Essie Play Date & Sally Hansen Insta Dry in Lightening. I’ve seen this print in black with red flowers, a Betsey Johnson version with hot pink and yellow and the traditional Laura Ashley print with mint and light pink or peach.” Check out Jen’s blog here!

Chelsea Brown

Finalists: BeautyStat.com/Sally Hansen Spring Nail Polish Trends Contest – Vote For Your Fave Now!

This is what Chelsea had to say about her nail look, “I was semi-inspired by Arizona Green Tea cans — and I love cherry blossoms! Thank you!”

 Christina

This is what Christina had to say about her nail look,”Hey! I am Christina. I always love French manicures, so when I saw these little flowers at the craft store I thought that would look cute to accent nails. They feel very spring-like to me! Thank you!

 

Cathy Bui

Finalists: BeautyStat.com/Sally Hansen Spring Nail Polish Trends Contest – Vote For Your Fave Now!

This is what Cathy had to say about her nail look, “I was inspired by the famous Effie Trinket form Hunger Games. I know everyone has been doing her nails lately, but I think the colors were just perfect for spring. I added a twist of silver to my tips to make it different than Effie’s. I used Essie Nail Polish in Splash of Grenadine, TheBalm’s Silver Spoon Me and Konad Nail Polish in Gold.”

Kate

Finalists: BeautyStat.com/Sally Hansen Spring Nail Polish Trends Contest – Vote For Your Fave Now!

This is what Kate had to say about her look, “My watercolor manicure was inspired by pastels and light, airy spring and summer fabrics.  Watercolor nails look gorgeous against the spring trends and can be done in various hues of one color or in a variety of colors. I painted all of my nails with Lumos Instant Impact Bottom Coat topped with two coats of Sally Hansen in Pure White.  I applied Lumos High Speed Top Coat and waited for the polish to dry.  I chose a series of colors that I wanted to watercolor with.  My colors of choice were: PritiNYC in California Bluebell (a dark periwinkle), Essie in Barefoot in Blue (a light periwinkle), Diamond Cosmetics in Don’t Teal My Heart Away (a medium teal), Rimmel London in Sunset Orange (a bright, orange-y coral), and China Glaze in Champagne Bubbles (a warm, yellow gold). Starting with the first polish mentioned, I placed a few small drips of polish on a nail, one nail at a time.  With a nail art (or small paint) brush that was dipped in nail polish remover, I smeared the polish around the nail.  I continued this process with each color on every nail.  When completed, I topped my nails with one last coat of Lumos High Speed Top Coat to set the polish.”

 

Leslie Baker

Finalists: BeautyStat.com/Sally Hansen Spring Nail Polish Trends Contest – Vote For Your Fave Now!

This is what Leslie had to say about her look, “Inspired by what else? M&Ms! I love nail art and have a blog dedicated
to it: www.Polishartaddiction.blogspot.com. Thanks for the great contest, and thanks for spending some time considering my entry!”

 

Marissa Clark

Finalists: BeautyStat.com/Sally Hansen Spring Nail Polish Trends Contest – Vote For Your Fave Now!

This is what Marissa had to say about her nail look, “This look was inspired by a vintage-looking dress. I used China Glaze – Electric Beat, Color Club – Blushing Rose and Kiss Nail Art Polishes to create this look”

 

Veronica McCreary

Finalists: BeautyStat.com/Sally Hansen Spring Nail Polish Trends Contest – Vote For Your Fave Now!

This is what Veronica had to say about her nail look, “SPLATTER NAILS! I posted about the Splatter Nails on my blog, www.thesavvyhousewife.com. Here is what I used to create my look: nail polish of your choice. I used four different colors (NYC in 238 Moma; Milani in 11A Silver Stilettos; Revlon Top Speed in 730 Royal and NYC in 294 Lexington Yellow) but you can use as many as you like. Base coat and top coat of your choice. I used Orly Bonder Rubberized Basecoat and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat. Coffee straws cut in half. Q-tips and nail polish remover (not pictured) for clean up. After polishing my nails with the NYC polish in 294 Lexington Yellow, I dipped my coffee straw in the Revlon Top Speed polish in 730 Royal then blew it onto my nails. There is really no right or wrong way to do it. I did practice a few times by blowing the polish onto a piece a paper to make sure I didn’t make a huge mess. I did the same process for the other two polish colors and finally applied the Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Top Coat. I cleaned up using my Q-tips and nail polish remover.”

 Donna Kiever

Finalists: BeautyStat.com/Sally Hansen Spring Nail Polish Trends Contest – Vote For Your Fave Now!

This is what Donna had to say about her nail look, “My nails were inspired by the galaxy! I used Sally Hansen in Black Heart, Mellow Yellow, Emerald Amethyst, Adorning Amethyst and Kiss Nail Art Polishes. Thank you!”

 

Alena Herwehe

Finalists: BeautyStat.com/Sally Hansen Spring Nail Polish Trends Contest – Vote For Your Fave Now!

This is what Alena had to say about her nail look, “It’s a new neon and glitterrific twist  to a French manicure. My inspiration was a neon pink and grey maxi dress – I kept getting compliments on it and wanted to translate the trend to my nails.  It’s fun for summer and embraces two of the “it” colors for summer: neon pink and anything that sparkles. It adds an element of pizazz to my otherwise all-black wardrobe and is a fun way to incorporate the hot pink trend. I used: Orly Bonder (base coat) Essie in Flirty Fucshia – I painted the whole nail, and then using a nail art brush and jar of acetone, I removed the lacquer from the tips only. I then filled it (just the tips only) with Stila in Chandelier. OPI Top Coat. Took about 15 minutes total.”

Sarah Waite

Finalists: BeautyStat.com/Sally Hansen Spring Nail Polish Trends Contest – Vote For Your Fave Now!

This is what Sarah had to say about her nail look, “This technique is deceptively easy! I started by painting on a base of white polish. The white base helps to make the sponged colors stand out, so it is an important step! After letting that dry, I took a triangle makeup wedge and tore it up into smaller pieces. Using the rougher torn edge, I gently sponged on small amounts of blue, green, pink, and purple, building the colors up slowly. I applied the colors randomly, until they had filled the whole nail. Then, I added the pattern on top by drawing it with more white polish and a dotting tool. If you don’t have a dotting tool, you can use the end of a sewing pin or the rubber tip of a bobby pin that has been bent open. Simple!” Visit her blog at ChalkboardNails.com.

A Luxe by Tracylee’s Favorite Sally Hansen Nail Swag Bag, filled with lots of her favorite products.
