My Eyeliner is Gone

With the recent discontinuation of the Avon True Color Superextend Precise Liquid Pen Eye Liner — My Personal FAVORITE, I’ve been trying a variety of other eye liners offered by Avon.

First I tried the fmg Cashmere 24HR Cream Eyeliner , I liked the coverage, but not the fact that it needs to be sharpened. (I know it looks like it shouldn’t because the pencil feels like plastic, but trust me the pencil needs sharpened.

Second I tried Glimmersticks Waterproof Eye liner in Blackest Night. (currently being rebranded as fmg Glimmer Eye liner), but found that the color seemed to smear before the end of the Day, and I looked like I had dark circles under my eyes.

Third I Tried the fmg Glimmer Longwear Gel Eyeliner in Tornado (Black) This I the one that I’ve switched to as a replacement for the Avon True Color Superextend Precise Liquid Pen Eye Liner. I find the coverage does NOT smear, and it stays put all day long. The biggest Fall Back is that it is Not a pencil, so you mush purchase a separate eye liner brush to use it. although this is an inconvenience, I’ve gotten use to it over the past couple of months.

The other eye line Avon Offers is the Avon True Color Always On Point Eye Liner. Although I haven’t tried this one in a number of years, it is also an alternative to try as a replacement for the Avon True Color Superextend Precise Liquid Pen Eye Liner.

Lip Gloss that Plumps your Pout

Did someone say lip gloss?  Now I’ll be the first one to admit, lip gloss has never really been my thing.  Not sure why, I’ve just never gotten excited about a glossy lip finish. 

But, for many of my customers (especially the younger mom’s out there) it’s been a popular item, but what if you want to “plump” up your pout.  What if you want those lips to look Fuller. The fmg Glimmer Lip Plumper, is just what you need for a Plumped up shine. 

Volulip™ visibly plumps your pout, while it softens and moisturizes  to provide a dimensional, wet shine. It is created with a non-sticky creamy formula.  Plus has the added benefits of antioxidant vitamin E. No stinging or burning, just fuller-looking lips! Shiny gloss finish gives hours of wear without feathering. Although this Lip Gloss is really designed to plump up your lips, it Comes in a Universally flattering, brilliant shade and a Refreshing peppermint scent.  It’s designed to be worn UNDER your favorite lip color, to create fuller looking lips.

For the best results, use the fmg Lip Plumper   BEFORE you start your morning makeup routine to give the formula a chance to work and plump up your lips.  Then apply another layer right before you start your lip color for a smoother application of lip liner, and color. You can even finish with your favorite shade of any of our 4 other lip gloss formulas.

Green Goddess

Happy Wednesday!  With the hot dry summer air, which seems to be much more daunting this year, I thought I’d share with you what I’ve found to be one of the best facial moisturizers (oils) I’ve found.  

As you know, I try most of the new skin care so I can let you know what I think of it.  BUT, it took me a while to get around to trying the Green Goddess Facial Oil.  Now I’m wishing I would have tried it sooner.  

I recently watched a training video about skin care, and Avon’s skin care expert. She said Green Goddess Facial Oil is one of the few products she includes in her daily routine, regardless of what else she is using at the time.  

So I figured it was about time I gave it a try, and I was not disappointed.  If I had to choose just ONE product, this would be the one.  

So how can you incorporate it into your daily routine?  Because it’s a lightweight OIL, Green Goddess should be the final step in your daily skin care routine.  Yes, it goes on after moisturizer.  Don’t worry, it’s lightweight enough, that it’s quickly absorbed into your skin.   

If you prefer a minimal, one product, skin care regimen, this is the one I would recommend.  I even use it over my SPF moisturizer, and my makeup perfectly blends into my skin. 

Since I started using it, My skin feels baby soft, and I’ve had a noticeable reduction in lines and wrinkles around my eyes and above my lips.  

Bottom line, this is definitely one of those “always keep an extra on hand, in case I run out”.

Campaign 14 is Live

Campaign 14 is here.  If you’ve been needing eye shadow, this campaign is for you.

We Introduce the NEW Eye Shadow Quads, in 10 exciting color palettes, The NEW Longwear Gel Eye Liners, and Longwear Gel Eyeshadows (My FAVORITE). One caution to remember, the Longwear Gels do NOT came with an applicator, so you’ll need an eye shadow brush.

Not sure of a color .. TRY IT ON – before you order.

I’m really liking this “try it on” tool.  I’ve taken a “selfie” of my face without any makeup and saved it to my phone, then I simply follow the directions and upload my photo as I “try on” different colors.   If you need help using the “try it on” tool let me know.

The winner of the Monthly Drawing for May is Betty Mader. Congratulations.

You can watch the video on the Beauty and Bluejeans Facebook Page.

Remember the Monthly drawing is FREE to anyone that places an order with me. (Direct Delivery, or Pick Up in Cottonwood).

Plus … A WOW deal you need to check out

What I’ve Changed Since Wearing a Face Mask

I’m not sure if it’s just me, but I’ve been having problems with my makeup, especially my eye makeup, smearing when my glasses steam up from my mask. Yes, I’ve tried several tricks to keep my glasses from steaming up, but none really worked that great. So I started trying different makeup techniques to see if that would help, and this is what I came up with.

I First Start with a Primer, the Magix Prime Face Perfector was just what I was looking for. And, If you know me well, the added benefit of the SPF 20 was right up my alley. The Face Perfector helps to visibly minimize pores and my fine experience lines (as I like to call them). It just seems to blurr them away. I also noticed that it helps my pores tighten up, especially around my nose, due to the Rose Extract. My face also feels silky smooth with the added moisturizing benefits of Fleece Flower Extract.

I Follow the Primer with a Tinted Moisturizer, Yes you read that right, a Tinted Moisturizer. Never thought you’d hear me say that, but I like the lightweight feel, it’s sheer and I can build, or add more if I need more coverage. With a face mask on, the Tinted Moisturizer doesn’t feel as heavy as a thicker foundation did. I also like the fact that it helps keep my skin hydrated with Vitamin E and B5. Plus, it’s Infused with passion fruit, Chia seed and Sunflower Seed.

I finish up with a Powder. But not just any powder. I’ve shied away from powders the last several years, because they just seem to settle in lines & wrinkles, making them worse. But, the Magix Dust Finishing Powder doesn’t seem to do that. It’s a pure mineral powder with ultrafine minerals and gems – tourmaline, powder ruby and rose quartz. It also has green tea extract to smooth skin and enhance my natural complexion. And the fact it’s 100% naturally derived was a plus in my book.

With the latest information that we may be wearing face masks for the foreseeable future, Changing up my makeup seemed like a necessary evil. I mean, when you have something you like, it’s really hard to give it up. Going lighter with foundation, starting with a primer and finding a powder that didn’t enhance my “experience” lines has been a Change for the better.

Lip Tatoo

I’m just wondering how you like the Lip Tattoo? I‘m really loving the staying power, but it took me a while to get used to it. prod_1201337_xl_6 Some hints to make it last the longest… *your lips should be completely DRY – I actually put it on BEFORE I used a face moisturizer *After you put it on – be sure to LET IT DRY completely (just a couple of minutes!) before eating or drinking or lip gloss or lipstick *  Make sure to store the pen horizontally (FLAT) so that the ink evenly distributes to both ends. * If the color starts to fade as you’re applying, simply press the tip on a tissue and it will re-release the ink – (I had to do this with one of them) Let me know if you have any questions.  Like I said it took me a while to get used to the Tattoo, but I’m using it daily, and loving the all day staying power. To help I made a You Tube Video to demonstrate.

Mystic Halloween Makeup

Well it’s the middle of October, and we have snow, yes again.  So it’s time to share another Halloween Makeup look. This one could be created using any color scheme you want.  I just did it with what I have in my makeup bag. (Remember there is no need to go out and get “Halloween Makeup”) So this look I created last night, so I still have on my makeup from the day.  If your starting with a clean face my recommendation is to put on your daily moisturizer, primer, and foundation Before you try to create this mystic look.  Not only will that keep your face fully protected with SPF, but it will make drawing on your face much easier. Trust me, I’ve tried creating a similar look on a clean face, and it was pretty difficult to do it. inCollage_20191015_215642478 So what did I use.  The first thing I did was to use an almost white shimmer eyeshadow, I used the Champagne Single Eye Shadow, but you could use any light Eyeshadow you have in your bag.  I over extended the shadow to create a mask over my eye area. I then added some definition with a sparkling blue color (you could use any color to create a different look). I followed that with a Black Ultra Luxury Eye Liner sharpened to a point.  I started at the far corner with the freshly sharpened liner and then worked my way back to my eye.  This helped keep the line at a sharp point. I then widened the line as I went towards my eye to create a thinker line.   I also used the black liner and defined my eyebrows, extending them to my temple and added a “hook” at the end. To add the extra touches of the hanging heart on my forehead, and small heart near my mouth, I used a Starry Night Glimmersticks Eye Liner.  Once I got the pattern drawn, I continued to add more color until I got the thickness and coverage I wanted. If you want to see the steps you can Watch YouTube Video Once I was happy with the look, I finished with  a setting spray, you could also used hair spray, yes you read that right, hair spray will help your makeup last all day and night.  Just be sure to close your eyes when you spray. Remember to have fun and be creative with your Mystic Halloween Look.

Seems we are gonna have a long winter this year.  I’m pretty much a summer person. I like the longer days, and the warmth of the summer months brings.  I also like the hint of sun kissed skin.

Quick & Easy Halloween Makeup – Glitter Cat

Do you have a box of Halloween makeup stashed away?  Me Too. I often wonder why.  Why do I hold on to that box of half used Halloween props, especially the makeup that just sits there for years. Yes I used it when my children were small, we would get it out and use it once a year.  I often wondered, why not just use my regular makeup. It would last longer as most Halloween makeup is creams and don’t last all day. So my question to you is, why not use the makeup you have sitting in the cupboard.  We all have eye shadow, liners, and blush colors that we very seldom use. Instead of spending you money on those Halloween creams that will end up just sitting and collecting dust until next year, why not use stuff you already have.. Or get a some new Makeup that can serve as double duty.  Use for Halloween to dress up, then use later. So what kind of stuff could serve a dual purpose?  What about eyeliners… with so many colors to choose from, you could get a couple unusual ones for Halloween then use after Halloween for special Days, such as a wedding, date night, Christmas or New year party.. prod_1190889_xl And eye shadow.  Who said eye shadow must be used on your eyes?.. Perhaps a green eye pallet could be used to create the perfect “wicked witch” face.  And you would be assured of the quality as staying power.   But how could you be assured your everyday eye makeup would last on your face?  Simply use a face Primer before applying, and then a setting spray after. (Or even a hairspray on your face, just be sorry to close your eyes). IMG_20190924_211815575 I quickly did this look in about 10 minutes with thinks I had laying in my makeup bag.  If I was going to do this for Halloween, I would probably use something different for my lips. Products used: You can start going through your makeup bag now, and see what you have to use your imagination. Then try your idea out, even before the big holiday.  Then when the day comes your already prepared. There’s no need to make a last minute run to the store and buy some Halloween Makeup.

Does a face Primer really help?

I let my sister try the face primer this past weekend.  After one use, she says to me “you might have to order me some of that stuff”. It really blurred out the red blemish that seemed to develop overnight.  I’ve been using it daily, right before the Magix Stick Foundation, and it really does help blurr the “experience” lines around my eyes and upper lip area. The new Magix Primer (previously Face Perfector) is kinda a holy grail of face perfecting. It’s a primer that everyone can use with the ability to stop shine, and diffuse pores.  The primer smooths the way for flawless, all-day makeup wear. As amazing as a disappearing act, this face perfector blurs imperfections, mattifies skin, protects with SPF 20 and locks in your makeup.  prod_1201341_xl The BENEFITS of the Primer
  • Instantly blurs for a pore-free, shine-free and line-free complexion
  • Thousands of shine-defying microspheres visibly minimize pores and fine lines
  • Rose extract visibly tightens pores
  • Fleece flower extract provides moisturizing benefits
  • SPF 20
  • Vegan; sulfate- and talc-free
  • Sheer, colorless coverage suitable for all skin tones
  • Soft-focus matte finish
  • Non-comedogenic
  • Dermatologist-tested
  • Oil-free
prod_1162300A_xl TO USE Apply Magix Prime alone, over makeup or under makeup. I personally have used it under my makeup.  It leaves a silky feeling, so makeup smooths on easily. You can use the Magix Prime basically anywhere you want a smooth, flawless complexion. Skin will be left feeling ultra-soft and smooth.

Liquid Lipstick? Is it really that good?

It’s been said that a woman can never have too many lipsticks.  Which might be true, but most of us have our favorite. I bet you much like me, you reach for a few favorite colors and formulas regardless of how many colors are stashed in your makeup bag.

I actually like to try all the newest formulas, as it only makes sense that I can only review a product after I try it.  

hp-mobile-img

One of Avon newest lipsticks is a Liquid Lipstick.  Even though it looks like a lip gloss, it’s a full coverage lipstick. As you all know, I’m much of a sceptic until I try something.  Truth be told, I’m usually pretty impressed with the newest innovations, and the Mattitude Liquid Lipstick did not disappoint.  Not only did it go on smooth, it began hydrating my lips on application. It was also quite easy to apply, as compared to tube lipsticks.  But for me, it also lasted longer than most lipsticks I’ve tried in the past, especially when layered over Lip Tattoo

The new Matte Liquid Lipstick, has Zero gravity and Infinite color. Mattitude, our soft matte liquid lip that comfortably coats your pout with a weightless wash of high-impact, super-saturated color. Instantly command attention when rocking any of the 8 long-lasting shades that leave a velvety soft finish and a powerful impression.

Created with micronized pigments to release rich, vivid color on impact. Oils and vitamins such as

Poppy seed oil and vitamin E, smooth and lips. With almost instant results.   Filled with all the good things to use on your lips and without the bad thing. This Mattitude Liquid Lipstick is Paraben-, sulfate- and phthalate-free.

inCollage_20190902_221536000

The first color I purchased was ambitious. I mean work a name like that how could I not.  Each of the 8 colors has a unique name to evoke a certain quality. Are you relentless, persistent, resilient, devoted, driven, resolute, tenacious or ambitious?  Try the color to match your personally, or believe it or not, match a color to evoke a feeling you want to achieve.

Gel Finish 7 in 1 Nail Enamel Product Review

I’ll be the first to admit, I really didn’t use many of the gel finish polishes from Avon, until recently.  I had preferred the colors of the other nail enamel we carried, plus it was cheaper. But in the recent months, the trueTrue Color Pro +Nail Enamel is being phased out, so I’m making the transition to the Gel Finish.

The Gel Finish 7-in-1 Nail Enamel boats of 7 in 1 benefits in one little bottle! 

BENEFITS

  • Base coat
  • Protection
  • Strengthener
  • Vivid color
  • Gel-like finish
  • Shiny
  • Top coat

Get the best at-home gel nails with Avon Gel Finish 7-in-1 Nail Enamel. This high-shine mani not only looks great but is healthy for your nails. Unlike a salon gel polish, No uv light is required, and it easily  remove with regular nail polish remover.

Forget destroying your nails with salon gel-manicures.  Avon Gel Finish protects and strengthens your nails, while making them look great with vivid color choices. This gel-like mani dries super shiny and doesn’t even need a top coat!

The first thing I noticed was that I got the best results when I took the time to shake up the gel for a minimum of 1 minute.  Believe it or not, this made a huge difference. I also learned that I needed to actually time myself. Yes that may seem ridiculous, but without watching the clock, I wouldn’t shake it near enough.

The second thing I noticed, is that  7 in 1 Gel Finish Nail Enamel generally requires 2 coats for the best coverage.  I’m use to quickly doing my nails, so this too a bit of an adjustment.  Although it takes a bit longer to do the initial painting, I’ve found that the extra time it takes to paint my nails is worth it because the enamel wears much longer.

And there are many exciting colors to choose from.  

inCollage_20190902_211845485

The majority of the colors dry to a high shine finish, with 2 that dry to a shimmer finish, and 2 with a slight glitter finish.

If you do your own self manicures at home, the Gel Finish 7 in 1 Nail Enamel

Might be what your looking for.

Avon Magix Wand Foundation Stick review

The newest addition to the Avon foundation lineup is a stick.  Yes you read that right, a stick. If your like me, you might be thinking, what?

The description from the web site reads “Poof! Cover + perfect + blur with the simple wave of our Magix Wand. The long-wearing, multi-use foundation stick—and a few sleight-of-hand tricks—deliver complexion perfection”

As usual I was skeptical, but once I got used to using it, I was pleasantly surprised.  So you might be thinking what’s the secret? The Magix Wand Foundation Stick is a high-pigment, light-as-air formula that creates a smooth canvas.  It actually perfects tone and blurs flaws leaving a soft demi-matte finish.

The Magix Wand has the ability to go from a full-face coverage to on-the-go touchups. It’s a purse-friendly foundation stick lets you easily conceal, highlight and contour. Screenshot_20190903-230317~2

The best recommendations I have for use is to apply directly ( from the stick) on to clean, moisturized skin. The key here is to apply shortly after your moisturizer.  I usually give about 3-5 minutes after my moisturizer to allow time for my moisturizer to properly absorb. 

I use 3 different sticks, one color as a base color.  This is a shade that “disappears” on my face when blended in.  Meaning that it is essentially invisible. I use a stick that is  two shades darker as a contour under my cheek bones, and temple areas.  I use a stick two shades lighter as a highlighter on my upper cheeks, tip of my nose, and upper lip area.  I also use a light shade as a concealer under my eyes.

Although I usually blend my foundation with my fingertips, I’ve found that the Magix Stick blends much better with a sponge. inCollage_20190903_223343546

I find that it actually smooths and evens my skins texture, and blurs the look of pores and wrinkles. This might be due to the shea butter and vitamin E that helps moisturize dry skin and provides antioxidant protection.  The best part that I like about the Magic Wand Foundation Stick is probably the fact that it blends almost effortlessly and leaves a silky, matte finish. 

When ordering, I recommend you find the color that best matches your skin tone, and also order a stick two shades lighter, and two shades darker.  Not only will you probably find your best shade, but you will also have colors to use as contour and highlighter.

Lip Tattoo

I’m so excited to share the new Avon 2-in-1Lip Tatoo  It’s a semi-perminent lip stain, that truly last all day long.  And best of all it’s VERY affordable (less than $15).

A bold lip inspires a bold life, so go out of your comfort zone with our dual-ended lip stain. Saturated color meets serious staying power for a pout that makes a lasting impression.

inCollage_20190627_211216948I know what you might be thinking, a lip stain is dry, and makes my lips crack and peel. The main reason that happens, is mainly lip stains are made with alcohol so the color will stay put.  But not these, the Avon 2-in+1 Lip Tatoo is infused with sunflower seed oil, so it actually nourishes you lips.  Plus  I have been putting a Vitamin C Lip Treatment over the top, or even a Lip Gloss Over top, and the color still stays.  On fact 12 hours later, I still had quite a bit of color.

inCollage_20190627_211732807.jpgWith the dual ends,  you can outline and define with the ultra-fine liner. Then use the felt tip to color in your lips. Think of it like a dual ended marker.

2-in-1 Lip Tattoo has serious staying power, but when it’s time to take it off, we recommend using Anew Hydra Fusion Micellar Water.
