My Review: Anastasia’s Tinted Brow Gel

anastasia_tintedbrowgel.jpg

I have fallen in love with almost every Anastasia product I’ve tried.  I was sent a big package full of their products, and over the last several weeks I’ve been playing around with all of them.  So much fun!

One of the products that I’ve found myself using more than just about all of them, is Anastasia’s Tinted Brow Gel.  I avoided it for a while, because I couldn’t imagine putting something shimmery in my eyebrows.  But one day I tried it, and I absolutely LOVED it!

It makes my eyebrows look like I’ve given them highlights!  It’s kind of hard to describe I guess, I’ll just tell you that I love it, and it will be a makeup staple of mine from now on!

For those with thin, sparse brows, this unique, botanical formula actually plumps the hair follicle, giving the appearance of fuller, thicker brows. The combination of cream and gel effortlessly defines and fills in brows while controlling and shaping without flaking or fading.

The non-greasy formula can easily be removed at night with a facial cleanser or makeup remover. Housed in a sleek, portable tube that allows for precise, no-mess application, Anastasia’s Tinted Brow Gel is perfect for instant brow touch-ups – anyplace, anytime, plus it’s the must-have tool for any beauty-savvy woman.

Gray is in!

When it comes to pretty, neutral, eye-enhancing shadow, for fall 2008 gray is the new beige. No place was this trend more apparent than at New York Fashion Week, backstage with the Stila Pro Beauty Team, led by makeup artist Talia Shobrook. Stila’s look calls for a fresh, lightly color-kissed face. Matte, porcelain skin, lips, and cheeks, with just a hint of rosy color, set the stage for stunning eyes. Finish the effect with gray, gauzy eyeshadow and a fringe of long, wispy lashes.

“The eyes are all about looking dreamy and feminine without being overdone,” said Shobrook. Sweep light gray shadow across the entire upper lids and onto the inside corners of the eyes. Use a smudge brush to work a darker gray shade into the creases and below the lower lash lines. Highlight the brow bone with a shimmery bone shade, and finish with a coat of black mascara on upper and lower lashes.

Simple, chic, and sometimes with freckles shining through, the au natural look gets updated and subtly illuminated with peachy, pinky shades to give a slight punch that looks almost doll-like. Makeup artist Tyron Machusen explains, “For lips, these shades of apricot and pink are flattering on everyone and really complement a gorgeous, fresh complexion.”

Emulsion Lip Exfoliant by Smashbox is the first sugar-based, peppermint, lip exfoliator that is perfectly edible, and smells delicious. Experience a cooling sensation as poppy seeds and sugar granules gently remove dry, flaky skin, while shea butter, jojoba, and antioxidants condition and revitalize lips.

To use: Apply emulsion to top and bottom lips – working it in a circular motion to exfoliate. Allow emulsion to remain on lips for several seconds until a cooling sensation begins. To remove, moisten a cotton pad with water and gently wipe away scrub. Follow with a generous application of Smashbox’s Treatment Lipstick.
