Luxurious Mousse-like Formula

While conventional color mascaras can be chalky, Estee Lauder’s NEW Sumptuous Color Bold Volume™ Lifting Mascara uses a specific blend of fine pearls and pigments to optimize and achieve rich, sumptuous color.

Made with Estee Lauder’s unprecedented Bold Volume™ formula, this sumptuously rich mascara contains a calculated blend of light-weight gels, polymers, waxes and pigments to lift and plump even sparse lashes into big, lush lashes that are all lightness and flirtatious curl.

The formula’s mousse-like, jellified suspension system utilizes “swollen” water to gently and lightly suspend the ingredients, allowing the use of less wax to add dramatic volume and lifting.

Adding to the exceptionally light base are ultra-light, lash thickening, “Y”-shaped Micro-Lock fibers that reinforce the volume enhancing, airy properties of the formula. These innovative nylon fibers interlock and stack together to create a pillow-like cushion around each lash, filling in even the sparsest of lashes and delivering glamorously rich volume and lift. The fibers are blended with Tack-Flex polymers that have the ability to quickly coat lashes from root to tip keeping lashes, light and flexible while adding exaggerated volume and weightless lift. All the volume without clumping!

Technologically Advanced Brush Design

Sumptuous Color Bold Volume™ Lifting Mascara’s exclusive BrushComber™ brush delivers all the thickening effects of a brush with the definition of a comb thanks to two types of bristle fibers – a softer bristle that grabs hold of the formula to create volume and a more rigid bristle that expertly separates lashes. Together, the fibers thicken and volumize lashes in one fast coat without clumping.

Ideal for even the sparsest of lashes, Sumptuous Color Bold Volume™ Lifting Mascara is fragrance free, ophthalmologist tested, and safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. Easily remove the mascara with makeup remover, such as Estee Lauder’s Take It Away Total Makeup Remover.

Express yourself in a dramatic new fashion this fall with bold, brilliant color and voluptuously full, sensuously curved, all-out seductive lashes. Sumptuous Color Bold Volume™ Lifting Mascara will be available for a limited time at Estée Lauder counters nationwide and on www.esteelauder.com beginning in September 2009. Suggested retail price: $19.50.

Introducing Shiseido’s New Fall 2009 Makeup Line!

smk2_pr07_mascara-image.jpgsmk2_pr09_mascara.jpg

Shiseido introduces its Fall 2009 Makeup collection, created by Shiseido’s Artistic Director Dick Page. The inspiration for this line was drawn from mosaic art, bringing a variety of different shades together to create a “full wardrobe” of colors, one that would fulfill a woman’s basic needs for every occasion. These colors are reflected in the new Luminizing Satin Eye Color Line, an elegant collection with the luminous look of fine silk. Available in 15 unique shades, this new interpretation of neutrals, pastels and brights makes choosing a color an adventurous pleasure. Each shade is meant to wear alone or in combination for an unlimited variety of looks for the season.

I love Shiseido’s new line! The eye shadows are beautiful! They are rich, and silky, and they last all day! I recently tried all of these products, and they are fabulous. I started with the Smoothing Eyeliner Pencil, and used two beautiful shades of the Luminizing Satin Eye Color. I finished it off with the Distinguish Mascara, which was great.

It is a GREAT line. The colors are beautiful, and they are so rich and bold.  I’ve already decided on the colors I have to try next, and I can’t wait to get my hands on them.  I’m picky about my eyeliners, and this is a great find. It glides on so easily, and smudges beautifully.

Go to your nearest Sephora and check out this line! You won’t be disappointed!

A total dud… Komenuka Bijin’s Makeup Remover

I tried this product, based on this review below:

Product Description
All-Natural and fragrance-free, Komenuka Bijin’s Makeup Remover gently removes makeup and cleans pores. Vitamins A, B1, and B2 rejuvenate your skin while removing makeup, and aloe helps make your skin truly healthy.Fragrance-free, Komenuka Bijin’s Makeup Remover gently removes makeup and cleans pores. Vitamins A, B1, and B2 rejuvenate your skin while removing makeup, and aloe helps make your skin truly healthy. If you’re looking for a safe, all-natural, and effective anti-aging regimen you’ve found it in rice bran – a centuries old beauty regimen and the secret of the ageless Japanese complexion.

Benefit from the miracle that’s been around for centuries!

The Japanese have known for generations that the potent vitamins and antioxidants in rice cleanse, tone, tighten, and regenerate softer and suppler skin. Now it’s available in a highly concentrated unscented formula, along with other pure and all natural ingredients. No other product are available, at any price, with such a high amount of potent ingredients and no chemicals or artificial fillers. You’ll use less and see visible results sooner than other more expensive products.

TrueRenu does the searching – and researching – for you. We look for hard to find, hard working products that do what they promise, and we bring them to you with detailed descriptions. We like Komenuka Bijin for its high amounts of antioxidant rich rice bran, and other natural ingredients. Because the active ingredient is so dominant, you’ll see the benefits sooner – and use less.

Product Size: Net Weight: 100g, or about 3.5 ounces.

But let me tell you, I thought this product STUNK. It’s a makeup remover, shouldn’t it remove makeup? I wear black eyeliner at times, and this remover wouldn’t remove the liner. It left me with makeup still on my face, and I was extremely frustrated. The two times I tried this product, I had to finish with another face wash – just to get the eye makeup off! Not to mention this product left a slimy film on my face. It wasn’t a good product at all, and I’m not going to tell you where you can buy it – cause it costs $36! If you’re looking for a makeup remover like I was – stick with the always amazing Lancome’s Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover.
