Yes, my Fangtasia Barrinos, even though I lurves me a super bright blush (hello, NARS Mounia), there are times when I
need prefer a more natural cheek look.
That’s why I’m fawning over Philosophy Lit From Within cream blush in Bare Your Soul ($23).
With just the faintest touch of shimmer, it’s like a smile on my cheeks.
Not only does it apply and blend like a dream (I use my fingers), it stays put for hours, too, on either bare skin or atop foundation.
And the color? Perfect! Like pinched cheeks, and probably one of the most natural-looking blush colors I’ve seen in a really long time.
Bare Your Soul joins two other creatively named shades in the Lit From Within line of cream blushes — Feel Warm All Over (a shimmery coral) and Look on the Bright Side (a sheer pink).
They’re part of Philosophy’s new Supernatural line of natural makeup in sheer colors for face, cheeks, eyes and lips. All are free of parabens, phthalates (plasticizers used in everything from children’s toys to eyeshadows and nail polish), mineral oil, talc, sulfates, propylene glycol and fragrance.
I’ll use it for low-maintenance looks or whenever I don’t want my cheeks to compete with any bright pops o’ color on my lips or eyes. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A+
Home sweet home
It looks like Tabs will be moving soon. Yup, we picked up keys to the condo a little while ago and will be moving toward the end of this month.
We met one of his new neighbors, a Siamese kitteh, and noted all of the broken stuff that needs to be fixed.
Although there’s still plenty of work to do, it feels like the hardest part is finally over.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. New York Fashion Week is still in full swing! Did ya catch the graphic black and white eye NARS did for the Marc Jacobs show?
I guess now I know what to do with that pan of white eyeshadow.
