Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Push-Up Liner


I was fortunate enough to receive a thirty day deluxe sample of the new Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Push-Up Liner during a Sephora VIB Rouge promotion. I have to admit I love the applicator but found the staying power was too extreme for my sensitive eyes. Even with the help of eye make-up remover it really hurt my lids by tugging the skin trying to take the product off. If you need an eyeliner that won't budge and have oilier lids then you will love this. Have you tried this? Stay beautiful! XOXO

 An innovative and waterproof lash-hugging gel liner pen. Benefit They’re Real! Push-Up Liner is the first fool-proof and budge-proof gel liner in a pen. A gorgeous way to open up eyes, this matte black gel formula won’t dry out, and its cutting-edge tip ensures a precise line every time. This eyeliner’s soft AccuFlex tip is custom-angled to draw an easy line. Its flat, wide guard gently pushes lashes aside to get close to lash line.

Formula: The gel liner is really budge proof! It stay's put! The color is a rich glossy black shade and the applicator tip is rubberized allowing you to line and smudge without any irritation or tugging on the lids or the water line. You can create fine lines or go bold with the pen tip. I really like the product except for the fact it's difficult for me to remove it off my sensitive lids. Maybe I'll try it again with other removers but so far I used a few products as well as oil based removers. The oil removers helped a lot but I find I don't want to have to go through all the tugging every time I'm using this. I guess it would be okay for creating certain looks or every now and then but I can't see myself using this everyday.

Victoria's Secret Heavenly Angel Limited Shimmer Mist

I shared the Victoria's Secret buy one get one body spray promotion with everyone on my Twitter and Instagram accounts a little over a week ago so hopefully you guy's had a chance to stock up on some. I purchased the limited edition Heavenly Angel Shimmer Body Spray at the same time I picked up that gorgeous leopard cosmetic case. I also had free shipping and an Angel Reward card so my total was insanely money saving. I'm not reviewing this because I already reviewed the Heavenly Angel Body Mist, this has the same formula with the exception of having fine diamond like gold dust particles. It's really pretty under bright lightening. If your interested in the full review click here to read. This product just went on sale for eleven dollars so go get some! Stay shimmery! Stay beautiful! XOXO

The irresistible allure of an Angel, now in a light and airy mist with a touch of sexy, sparkling shimmer that’s perfect for summer. Spritz over décolleté, arms and legs to dress skin up with the one and only Angel glow. Fragrance type: Warm Notes: White musk, sandalwood, vanilla and white peony 250 ml 8.4 fl ounce

Caudalie Beauty Elixir Limited Edition By L'Wren Scott

The second review for today's facial mist products, the Caudalie Beauty Elixir Limited Edition By L'Wren Scott sold exclusively at Sephora. Caudalie makes the same larger three ounce size elixir spray bottle and with this collectible version showcasing L'Wren Scott artwork, it's only available in the one ounce size. I purchased two of these bottles since they were under twenty dollars each and a wonderful way to pay tribute to a beautiful designer. They are also shipped loose without any box.

 A beauty elixir to refresh the complexion for instant radiance with grape, orange blossom, rose, balm mint, and rosemary. Inspired by Queen Isabelle of Hungary’s elixir of youth, this treatment smooths the appearance of fine lines, tightens pores, and gives the complexion an instant boost of radiance. Beloved by beauty addicts, celebrities, and makeup artists alike, fashion designer L’Wren Scott reimagines the iconic Beauty Elixir bottle with this limited-edition design that pays homage to the timeless beauty of the female silhouette. Beauty Elixir is a natural product without mineral oil. It is not tested on animals and does not contain animal ingredients.

 Formula: This elixir gives off a fine spray mist that is refreshing and light. The only thing about the formula that could be improved upon is the herbal scent. While it's not intrusive it has quite the strong herbal nose that seems to smell like rosemary. There's also a hint of fresh mint but I think the herb stays with you more. This product gives your skin a nice glow and can be used patted on a fresh cleansed face for an added boost of moisture as well as a make-up setting spray. It's non-sticky and non-greasy while non-interfering with your foundation. A small spritz will do the job and with this bottle if you use it daily it's sure to run out within the week. What I can't understand is why they didn't make this with a removable top! I mean it's a collector's edition bottle with nice artwork and a shame to throw the bottle away after it's done. Little dumb things like this play on my nerves. It's all in the details. I might purchase the full size again because it's a decent mist. I only hope they make a new version with less of that herb scent. This elixir is a favorite among Caudalie fans, celebrities and a great addition to your beauty arsenal. Have you tried this? Stay beautiful! XOXO
