New! Illamasqua launches two new US exclusive colors!

Illamasqua US Exclusive Blue Nail Varnishes

From the runway shows of New York and London to city street styles, shades of blue continue to adorn the talons of the style makers and trendsetters alike. Inspired by the hottest color of the season, Illamasqua introduces two new blue nail varnishes in the beautifully expressive shades of Noble and Cameo to be sold exclusively at Sephora and Sephora inside JCP.

Illamasqua’s Director of Product Development David Horne specifically mixed these two complementary hues to compliment Illamasqua’s range of over 50 bold shades of chip resistant, long wearing nail varnishes.

“It’s fun to play with the two shades together; I would recommend a modern french, or using Noble as an accent nail while painting the rest of the hand in Cameo. Blue nails just add the perfect pop of color!”

Prepare nails with one coat of Illamasqua Base Coast, then using the superfine brush provided, apply two coats for vibrant, rich color. Follow with Illamasqua Top Coat for a high gloss, long lasting finish.

Available exclusively at selected Sephora stores nationwide, Sephora in JCP and online at www.sephora.com from October 4, 2012

Noble & Cameo – Illamasqua Blue Nail Varnishes $14

 


My newest obsession is Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15

About a month ago I headed into Sephora in search of some new foundation. I needed something that felt weightless, covered my sun spots, was waterproof and had sunscreen in it. Without hesitation, the Sephora clerk pointed me in the direction of Tarte’s Amazonian clay 12-hour full coverage foundation SPF 15. She asked if I’d like help color-matching the foundation, and I let her work her magic. She applied the foundation with Sephora’s Airbrush brush (#55).

To say I’ve been applying my foundation wrong all these years is an understatement.  The Airbrush brush has COMPLETELY changed the way I put on foundation. It literally makes your skin look like you’ve been airbrushed. It is hands down THE BEST way to apply foundation. She showed me the different ways to put on foundation (a sponge just soaks it all up – what a waste!), and the brush is the way to go. Trust me. Follow this link to buy online, or head into Sephora and ask for it. You’ll be so happy you did.

Back to the foundation. I loooooooooooooove this foundation. It feels absolutely heavenly on my skin. Your skin doesn’t feel weighed down, it feels and looks amazing! It’s only $34, and you can also pick it up at Sephora or Ulta.

Like airbrushed foundation without the air! Achieve total skin balance thanks to this Amazonian clay-powered foundation. Whether your skin is oily, dry, or combination, skin-smart Amazonian clay will intuitively adjust to address your complexion concerns. This revolutionary foundation also reduces the appearance of pores, while minimizing discolorations and imperfections to ensure a perfectly flawless complexion. Get 12 hours of flawless coverage with this long-wearing UVA/UVB SPF 15 formula. With a weightless texture this buildable and blendable, everyone can achieve skin that looks healthy and natural.
