My Current Make Up “Must Have’s”

September 20, 2010 | | Comments 1

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat

I am almost embarrassed to write about my complete adoration for Touche Eclat, because I’m feeling like I was one of the last people to fall in love with it. Somehow, my life hadn’t yet found a place for my new absolute “must have”. But, so what if I was the last to arrive at the party! In my interviews with Kate Walsh, Julie Benz and Melora Hardin, they all raved about YSL Touche Eclat. I simply HAD to check it out. Now, I can’t do without it. I use the Touche Eclat in “Radiant Touch” and it is, hands down, the best highlighter I have ever used. I use it both on my bare skin and over/under my makeup. Can’t get enough of it! It is the only highlighter I have ever used that actually hides any dark circles I might get under my eyes. It adds such an amazing pop and reflects light beautifully. It truly adds that extra special touch to my eye makeup. I can’t say enough about this product. It’s the perfect pick-me-up for your face. Radiant! I’ve told all of my girlfriends that if they are going to try anything new, in the world of makeup, they have to try Yves Saint Laurent’s Touche Eclat, if they haven’t already. It’s not a new product, but you must race out to get it if you’ve yet to discover it and fall in love with it as I have. I’m totally obsessed with this product! It’s brilliant! Touche Eclat: I’m sorry it took me so long to find you. But you’re in my life now and you’re here to stay. Hands down…my new favorite thing in my makeup bag.


Bobbi Brown Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadow

Loving this! The Bobbi Brown Metallic Cream Shadow is one of the easiest ways to get a super sexy eye, with little skill or effort needed. My shade of choice is “Antique Gold” and it’s beautiful. I wear it alone and I also layer it over a dark, smoky eye. The application process couldn’t be easier. I use my finger, the texture is very smooth, and I just dab it in the areas where I want that extra bit of sass. I want the Metallic Cream Shadow in every shade. It’s got the perfect amount of sparkle in it and has a wonderful sheer effect when worn alone. I’m loving this Cream Shadow!


Clinique High Lengths Mascara

I tend to switch up the mascara that I’m using quite often. Right now, I’m really enjoying Clinique High Lengths Mascara. The mascara “brush” is a very fine-toothed comb. In fact, it’s so fine-toothed, that I had my doubts about it. I didn’t think it could possibly get my eye lashes in true diva form without a big, more common, size brush for application. Much to my delight, the High Lengths Mascara totally achieves all I need in a mascara. I have very long eye lashes and this is a great mascara for me. Plus, I love switching things up! Having a blast with this one from Clinique right now. And for extra diva lashes…I always apply a second coat.
Also, on a side note: I’m still completely in love with Clinique’s Vitamin C Lip Smoothie (previously reviewed). I still can’t recommend that one enough! Love it!


Smashbox Waterproof Shadow Liner Duo

The application of the Smashbox Waterproof Shadow Liner is very smooth and the color lasts. I’m using the shade “Cashmere” and I love the colors. “Smolder” is the next shade on my shopping list. With the “Cashmere” Duo, I use the darker shade as my eye liner and I use the lighter shade as an all-over shadow on my lids. But I also like to use the lighter shade of liner on the inner corners of my eyes from time to time. I like to mix it up and keep things fresh! I highly recommend playing around with your makeup, experimenting with new ways of applying your makeup, and trying to use one product in a few different ways. Get creative! The Smashbox Waterproof Shadow Liner Duo comes in a mirrored compact, which is always a plus.


Aveda Color Options Eye Shadow Transformer

Okay Gorgeous…Aveda has made it super easy for you to turn your favorite eye shadow into eye liner. Brush included, this is a super cool tool to have in your makeup bag. It turns your powder eye shadow into a cream and a more intense color and also transforms eye shadow into liquid eye liner. It’s oil-free and it’s formulated without parabens. Always a huge bonus! I really like how it intensifies the color of my eye shadow. I love that this product helps you to use your makeup in a new and different way. It’s all about trying new things. Switch it up for yourself! Make the most of your favorite eye shadow. Have too much fun!
