cargo gloss

I love this gloss! It is so shiny and I love how it feels on. Best part is how long wearing it is for a lipgloss.

This is a great peel off mask, I found I needed a bit more that the suggested amount but it did peel off really easily. How fun is the peeling part? The mask smells fantastic and makes my skin feel great and leaves it so soft and smooth.

I’m very fair so finding a blush that shows up but doesn’t make me look like a painted lady is always a tricky balance. I have been on the hunt for something new when this little gem entered my life. The shade has great pigment but is a nice sheer so it looks natural and can be layered.

Golden Goddess!

tan150.jpg

I have very fair skin, and since hitting my late 20’s I decided to ditch the dangerous tanning beds and make sunscreen my best friend. I still love to have a little glow in the summer time so I am always trying new self tanners. Yesterday I gave Model Co. Tan Airbrush in a Can a trial run and overall I am very impressed.

The spray comes out really evenly so if you are the right distance from your skin you don’t need to hand blend at all. Tan Airbrush in a Can also has a great cocoa butter scent and your skin is left smelling sweet and not like fake tanner. Once you spray your skin you are left with a nice bronze color that develops into a beautiful golden tan. I was most impressed at the color of the tan my skin looks perfectly brown like a natural tan with no hint of orange. The only downfall is due to the great airbrush style sprayer it can be very messy to apply. I would suggest instead of standing on a towel you just apply in the shower, the spray with get everywhere and with the shower I just sprayed down the walls and there was no trace of color.

If you want to spend the last month of summer looking like a golden goddess order your Model Co Tan Airbrush in a Can you will love the way you look!

Model Co Tan Airbrush In A Can

INSTANT BRONZER AND SELF TANNING SPRAY FOR FACE AND BODY.

It’s all about being bronzed through safe, sunless tanning! ModelCo has finally created the first ever self tanner that puts an end to stained hands and uneven coverage. Like your own personal airbrush, TAN goes on as a fine mist leaving you with a smooth, natural tan. The deep golden pigment gives you an instant all-over healthy glow whilst the long lasting self-tanner develops underneath in hours.

1. To remove all previous color and or prep your skin for a long lasting tan use apply TAN REMOVER EXFOLIATING SCRUB and BUFFED EXFOLIATING BODY TOWEL to exfoliate hard to reach places like your back, and extra dry places like knees, elbows, and ankles.
2. To obtain long lasting results, apply TAN AIRBRUSH IN A CAN with 45 minute after showering, when your skin is clean. Cover the floor if you intend to stand and spray, or spray in the shower so any excess spray can be easily washed away. Shake the can well (this is really important) and spray about a foot away from your body in a light, even motion (you’ll love the cocoa butter scent!).
3. Apply a light spray for a subtle hint of color or a heavy application for a dark golden bronze. Remember practice makes perfect and if you do make a slight mistake please feel free to rub the tan into your skin (and you can use the TAN REMOVER to wash the excess tan off your hands!)
4. Since your tan will deepen over time, wait twenty minutes before dressing and eight hours before showering. TAN AIRBRUSH IN A CAN is designed to suit all skin types so if you would like a darker tan simply apply another layer!

Lip Lights- LOVE IT!

I am a gloss addict, I started counting my glosses this weekend and gave up when I passed 30. I love lip gloss and while there are all different colors and styles I haven’t found any lately that really stood out until I found Lip Lights by Model Co.

When I first opened the tube I let an excited little yell out when I saw the LED lights in the lid. At first I thought it was just a gimmick that was really cute and fun but I didn’t know how much I would actually need the light. I ventured downtown to go dancing with some girlfriends on Friday night and decided to bring my Lip Lights and I fell in love. Instead of needing to run to the bathroom for a lip gloss touch up I was able to retouch perfectly even in the darkened room. When the gloss wand is pointed at your lips the LED lights shines perfectly at your mouth and if you use the little mirror on the side you can perfectly reapply anywhere.

So the light is fun and highly useful (great for navigating the recesses of my purse) but even with the fun light you need a great gloss for it to be worthy of adoration. Lip Lights is not just a fun product it’s a great lip gloss with the perfect touch of color and a ultra high shine. On top of the great color Lip Lights goes on smooth and doesn’t get sticky, even after cocktails and dancing Lip Lights has great staying power.
