G’morning, girls! How’s your Saturday going so far? I slept in a lil’ bit and then spent some time catching up on my beauty reading; check out these really cute vintage perfume bottles on Bella Sugar and Beauty Addict’s favorite fall nail polish. I also spotted the Too Faced Cosmetics Smoke and Mirrors Fall 2008 makeup collection. A few of the items look super cute, especially the lipsticks, smokey eye palette and the glitter liner. Right now I’m getting ready to run some errands (Target and Costco, fun!), and since my closest Sephora sits next door to House of Tar-ghay, I figure it won’t hurt for me to pop in and take a look.
I don’t have much experience at all with the Too Faced brand, but earlier this year I tested Too Faced Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer, using it for one week beneath Clinique, Dior and MAC eye shadows and had much better luck with it than I had with Urban Decay Potion Primer. I had no problem blending shadows layered on top of Shadow Insurance.
Product: Too Faced Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer
Use: As a base for powder or cream eye shadows
Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B
It did exactly what a good shadow primer should do, keeping my eye shadows from settling into the fine lines on my lids and ensuring that my shadow stayed strong, all day long (even through workouts at the gym). So I’m really looking forward to Smoke and Mirrors. I think the brand has a lot going for it.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
