Eyeko Fat Eye Stick in Satin Taupe

Light up your eyes with this amazing chubby eyeliner from Eyeko. Flattering on any skintone, the sheen it imparts on eyes is a show stopper. The fawn like color and smooth glossy application, will leave your eyes looking  luminous and well rested!

I also love the surprise retractable twist up applicator. It couldn’t be easier to take your eye makeup from a vibrant opaque finish, all the way to an ethereal sheer wash of color. You can also use this creamy stick to line your eyes,  with a cat eye flick at the ends, or use your fingers to smudge it on. So many liners claim to be bendable, but they require a game of tug of war on your delicate lids. This highly pigmented cream melts right in, staying malleable enough to get the color where you want it, while miraculously lasting for hours. But for best results, primer first is always the way to go for creaseless staying power.

But my favorite easiest, goof proof way to use it? Take a swipe or two over each lid, from the lash line to the crease or just a hint above the crease. Then grab your fluffy ponytail brush and with a windshield wiper motion, blend it out. Voila! Your eyes will instantly look bigger, brighter and beautifully defined. Smoky eyes in truly seconds.

Here’s a list of all their beautiful colors:

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Rose

If you like a glowy cheek, Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick in Rose delivers! If you need to revive dull skin, Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick in Rose delivers!

With just the right amount of pearly color and sheen to light up the high points of the face, this smooth brush-on powder doubles as a great highlighter and/or a great blush. And unlike most highlighters out there, it somehow doesn’t emphasize pores. The result is subtle, shimmery, healthy, natural looking skin. And the color is perfection! Rose is truly rosy and works on most skin tones for a healthy flush and a luminous glow, all in one package!

As a highlighter:

Swirl your brush over all the 5 colors in the palette to mix them together, and run it over the top of your cheeks, temples, nose, chin, and even lids.

As a blush:

Swirl your brush over all the 5 colors and apply them to the apples of your cheeks. The results? Like Nars Orgasm, but more subtle.

Now, the Shimmer Brick may seem pricey but you do get a lot for your money. This brick will last you years – very little truly goes a very long way!

Tip:

You can even apply it to the center of your bottom lip before using gloss, for a fuller Jolie pout.

Sunday Riley Eye Shadow in Solstice

Sunday Riley Eye Shadow in Solstice

My skincare and makeup products look like Noah’s Arc. While I am product faithful, I’m not necessarily brand faithful.  I find gems in many various lines. But I must confess, Sunday Riley is throwing in an expensive monkey wrench. In fact, I think I’m developing a serious habit, much to my pocketbook’s dismay. I’ve already raved about Sunday Riley’s line, starting with Juno when my beauty partner, Jac and I first started Glow+Tell. Let alone my obsession  with Good Genes. Then there are the dream products I have yet to review: Bionic, the Creme Cleanser, the Primer (reviews to come). But let’s talk makeup. Sunday Riley’s makeup line is delicious, with one of my faves being her eye shadow, Solstice.

The color is a delicious cranberry that is just the right mix of satin and shimmer.  Great as a lid color but exceptional in the crease. This shade warms up the eyes, adding a sunkissed glow. For added depth and dimension, add Solstice to a smoky eye! Highly pigmented yet easily buildable, the soft texture makes application a breeze.. This versatile radiant color is a must!

From the Sunday Riley  site:

Multi-functional wet and dry formula can be used as a traditional eyeshadow or as a precision eye liner. This ultra-fine, long-wear formulation is air-milled for exquisite texture and rich, stay-true color. Micronized spherical pigment particles impart effortless blendability and instantly satisfying color payoff. Offered in a range of finishes, from matte to satin to illuminating shimmers. Paraben Free.
