Makeup and Beauty Product Reviews and Swatches

Milani HD Advanced Concealer from the Spring 2010 collection claims to rival the famous Yves Saint Laurent Radiant Touche Eclat by promising to “soften the look of facial lines and wrinkles and reduce visible age spots by more than 50% after 28 days”. Now we all know the Touche Eclat has long been a favorite among people in and out of the beauty industry. I have also used the Touche Eclat myself so let’s see how the HD Advanced Concealer compares to it!

Stila‘s latest invention, One Step Makeup, promises to roll primer, foundation, concealer and powder all into one product to deliver weightless, high definition, long wearing skin perfection for all skin types. Let’s find out if it’s too good to be true!

The One Step Makeup is made from 100% natural mineral pigments with no paraben or fragrance. Ingredients include a new Youth Revival Bio-available Mineral Complex, which are 15 ionically charged minerals that read and react to all your skins needs, along with silicone, isododecane, hydrogenated didecene etc.

The latest Viva Glam collection, From Our Lips, bring us two new lipsticks named after Cyndi Lauper and Lady Gaga.

While Viva Glam Cyndi Lipstick may look red in the tube, this “light reddish coral” does show up more coral than red on me. It also goes on really moist and leaves behind a really pretty stained look even after it has dried up. I will definitely be wearing this a lot!

We all know how stress can wreak havoc on the skin but now you can fight it with Kenzoki’s latest Angel Eyes from the Belle De Jour range.

Containing White Lotus, Angel Eyes claims to significantly boost the appearance of younger, healthier looking skin by reducing the effects of cortisol, aka stress hormone. In clinical trials, levels of cortisol in saliva were shown to decrease by a whooping 13% after a single application. Angel Eyes also claims to improve the production of beta endorphins and promote an overall feeling of well-being.
