Nothing Ugly here – the best actress in a comedy series nominee romances the red carpet in a charcoal gray Monique Lhuillier lace gown with a jeweled shoulder and Jimmy Choo heels. 

I thought America Ferrera looked gorgeous!  Her cheeks look perfectly sun-kissed!

Bronze – N – Brighten by Laura Gellar
What it is:
A unique and revolutionary formula of color corrective pigments along with bronzer.

What it is formulated to do:
Baked to create a beautiful, dewy yet matte finish, the infused color found in this compact gives the complexion a hint of bronzed color for a sun-kissed look without any hint of orange. Add a second layer of color for a deeper shade of bronze. The color stays where you put it, will not transfer onto clothes, and always looks great on your skin.

Ferro Cosmetics fool-proof mineral makeup.

I recently received some samples of Ferro Cosmetics mineral makeup to review. After the let down from a major mineral makeup I recently tried I wonder how well it would work.

This first thing I noticed was the foundation didn’t leave that same sheen some of the other mineral makeups leave it was a really nice matte finish. It also seemed to sit better on my face, it covered rather than magnified my pores. I applied the Crystal Mineral Veil after the foundation and it seemed to help it set on my face and did reduce shine.

My two favorite products I tried were the Glow Baby Glow and Blush x3. Glow is a great bronzer, it gives you a nice sun kissed look without the sun and looked very natural. I loved the Blush x3 this mineral blush not only works on cheeks but eyes and lips as well. Blush x3 completes your mineral makeup look by offering the same color on your 3 most important features.

Overall I was pleasantly surprised with Ferro Cosmetics and their products. I am still not sure if I will become a strictly mineral makeup girl. If you want to try Ferro Cosmetics out for your self the have a great starter set to get you going.

Tried it and I just don’t like it.

I am always hearing how great bareMinerals and Bare Escentuals are for your skin and how flawless they make your skin look. So I decided I would finally try it out and started with the bareMinerals foundation but instead of flawless skin I think I looked more flawed.

A friend who is a big BE fan said maybe I need some of the other face powders they sell to use with the foundation for a more flawless look. I feel though that when I buy a foundation it should look good on all it’s own maybe enhanced by partner products but not dependent on them.I know a lot of people use bareMinerals and love it but every time I tried it I just wanted to take it off it made my pores look huge and my skin looked better with out anything on it.

bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation

What it is:
A mineral-based foundation that gives flawless coverage.

What it does:
Made of only pure, crushed minerals from the earth, bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation looks like a powder, feels like a cream, and buffs on like silk, giving skin a natural luminosity while feeling as if you are not wearing any makeup at all.
