Best of Bobbi Brown Crushed Oil-Infused Glosses
by Christine on January 25, 2020 at 10:00 pm
Here's your recap of my Bobbi Brown Crushed Oil-Infused Gloss ($27.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) reviews now that they're all done! I think it's a nice, comfortable formula that has a smooth, plush consistency, which I found particularly comfortable to wear, but the sheerer coverage makes a few shades run together. There were also some that settled into my lip lines or could have been applied more evenly, which are typical issues associated with sheerer, darker shades of gloss, so I wasn't completely surprised. Some of the lighter and more mid-tone shades looked quite lovely on--smoothing almost--and they were very, Continue Reading…
Revlon Gentlemen Prefer Pink, Blushing Mauve, Sassy Mauve Super Lustrous Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches
by Christine on January 25, 2020 at 8:00 pm
Revlon Gentlemen Prefer Pink Super Lustrous Lipstick ($8.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a brighter, medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had buildable coverage from medium to semi-opaque that glided on easily over my lips without tugging as the texture was lightweight, emollient (but not slippery), and easy to work with. The color went on evenly and didn't emphasize my lip texture. It lasted well for four hours and felt lightly moisturizing while worn. Revlon Blushing Mauve Super Lustrous Lipstick ($8.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a soft, medium-dark pink with moderate, warm undertones and fine Continue Reading…

Johnny B's Gabriel Quinones Shows How to Blend a Fade Into a Beard
by intern on January 24, 2020 at 12:12 am
Gabriel Angel Martinez In this video, Johnny B Hair Care international educator Gabriel "GQ" Quinones creates a fade and blends the shortest part of the haircut into the model's facial hair. The beard is blended into the haircut before any facial shaving takes place. Here's a walkthrough the two sections that create the look. Section 1: Create the haircut Create the skin fade first, which creates more contrast in the haircut and the beard blend. Step One: Use a balder clipper to remove bulk and prepare the blend to be taken to the skin. Step Two: Use a clipper with a lever to move on with the blending. Set the clipper at zero (where the two blades are aligned) and blend from where you left off with the balder moving upward. Step Three: Turn the lever up on the clipper to create a half-size level. (This is also considered turning the lever open.) Continue working upward from where you left off in the last section. Using the half-lever turned up, blend from zero moving upward.Education

Saturday Surfing, January 25th, 2020
by Karen on January 25, 2020 at 2:57 pm
Happy Caturday, lady! Or, should I say, “Happy Unicornday?” Hmm… Doesn’t flow off the tongue as readily, but I like it. 😊 There are two reasons I’m into that unicorn up there at the top. 1) Its silver-haired mane gives me something to look forward to someday. (Oh, to be a silver-haired unicorn! #BIGDREAMS) And 2) because the picture is on every single card in this deck of Affirmators! (exclamation mark included!) cards I got in my stocking for Christmas. It’s so cute! Each card has a positive saying on it, and the way it works is you shuffle the deck (unicorn side up), pull a card out, and read it, ideally out loud (it’s supposed to work better that way). And then you carry that thought with you throughout the rest of your day. In my new morning routine, the first thing I do — instead of mindlessly scrolling through social media or reading my emails on my phone — is feed my mind with these good things, and I kid you not, it sets the tone for a pretty good day. This one is my favorite… I like this one too! Continue reading "Saturday Surfing, January 25th, 2020" on Makeup and Beauty Blog.
Lip of the Day: Chanel Virevoltante, Kate Spade Glasses and a Costco Optical Tip!
by Karen on January 24, 2020 at 3:22 pm
Costco Optical, man… Really impressed me. Good selection, fantastic prices. Yup, I wore Chanel Virevoltante lipstick yesterday to get those Kate Spade frames I’ve been thinking about from Costco, woo-hoo! Costco is having a promotion, by the way, until January 28 where you can get a second pair of frames for $40 off, so I ended up also getting this clear pair by Via Spiga, which I’m going to use for prescription sunglasses…and I’m very excited about that! I’ve never had a pair of prescription sunglasses before. I feel so fancy. 🙂 The lipstick didn’t last through the ramen I had for lunch, though… And that’s because opaque berry rose Virevoltante is in the Chanel Rouge Allure line, which is Chanel’s line of highly pigmented, lightweight lippies, which are relatively long lasting for a featherweight-feeling lipstick (seriously, sometimes I forget I have one on), but they’re nowhere near as resilient as a MAC liquid lipstick, by comparison, which you can wear from this lifetime into the next. Virevoltante will last about three hours if you’re only trying on glasses or puttering around, but it’ll peace out if you start eating hot noodles.
