Introducing Three Amazing Votre Vu Products!

Le Joli Crayon, Smudge & Set Soft Eye Liner:

Brigitte Bardot educated the world about the allure of eyeliner … and now Le Joli Crayon is here to teach you. Draw on the drama with this mistake-proof gel pencil that feels like a liquid liner, but allows you time to feather and smudge before it sets. Le Joli Crayon’s smart sponge blending tip wouldn’t dare tug or tear at your delicate eyelid. Rather, this budge-proof, smudge-proof and melt-proof liner is all about prevention and retention. Could this be the real French paradox? A pretty eyeliner that is so soft on your skin, yet strong enough to provide the intensity of a liquid liner in one simple stroke?

Rich in mineral pigments, anti-aging fruit extracts, and vitamin E, this super-conditioning, proprietary formula nourishes and hydrates the fragile eye area while treating it with healing free-radical fighters. Botanically harvested candelilla wax provides both an effortless glide and water-resistant layer that seals in the peeper pigment’s mineral-color blend. As easy to remove as it is to apply, this long-lasting, ophthalmologist-tested formula is the ultimate on-the-go liner.

I absolutely LOVE this eye liner. It glides on like a dream, seriously. It is beautiful, and it lasts forever. If I had a list of favorite eye-liners, this one would be on top. This really is an amazing product!!

Only $23!

Vu-On Rouge, Sheer Moisture Color Accent for Lips & Face!

Your skin takes center stage with a kick of color from Vu-On Rouge sheer moisture tint. Just a simple swish of this multi-tasking pop-up stick bestows a fetching and flirty flush to cheeks, lips, lids and facial contours.

Blended with hydrating shea and exotic antioxidant-rich mango seed butters, Vu’s ravishing rouge spreads smoothly over skin, creating a dewy luster and irresistible airbrushed finish. Without creasing or caking, this long-wearing plant-based pigment evokes renewed vitality to your visage and wouldn’t dare settle into fine lines. Skin-conditioning jojoba and castor seed oils step in for a finished formula that naturally flatters, stabilizes and protects.

Available in three shades to complement every complexion, Vu-On Rouge can be worn alone or over Love Me Deux tinted moisturizer. To set, dab on protective Belle Poudre for a look that wears long after the cabaret’s last dance.

I love that this is a two-in-one product! It looks great both on my lips and my cheeks! It goes on smoothly, and lasts forever! Beautiful color! PS: The color I tried is Bouquet Rose, GORGEOUS!

Michelle Williams “OZ the Great and Powerful” Los Angeles Premiere- Look by Sabrina Bedrani for Laura Mercier

Makeup artist Sabrina Bedrani created a “chic yet sexy” makeup look for Williams, who stars in the upcoming movie, “OZ the Great and Powerful.” Bedrani drew inspiration for the look from the star’s white, embellished Prada dress, which also featured an unexpected thigh-high slit down the side. Noted Bedrani,”I loved this look for Michelle. It’s sophisticated, yet still youthful. It complemented her hair style and dress nicely.”

EYES: According to Bedrani, “It was actually Michelle’s idea to go for a smoky cat eye.”

  • Bedrani used a combination of Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colours to create the sultry eye look. First, she applied Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Cocoa ($24) all over the lid and along the bottom lash line.
  • Then, she used a brush to swipe Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Khaki ($24) onto the top and bottom of the outer corner of her eyes to add depth. She blended the shade outward to “extend the eye and give it a cat-eye effect.” She applied Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Rose Gold ($24) onto the inner corners to brighten the look.
  • Next, she defined Williams’ eyes by applying Laura Mercier Crème Eye Liner in Noir ($22) onto the lash line.
  • Then, she filled in Williams’ eyebrows using Laura Mercier Eye Brow Pencil in Fair Blonde ($20) and used Laura Mercier Eye Brow Gel ($20) to define the shape. Bedrani added the final touch of glamour by applying multiple coats of Laura Mercier Faux Lash Mascara ($24) to Williams’ top and bottom lashes.

FLAWLESS FACE: Bedrani kept Williams’ face “fresh and youthful.”

  • Next, she dusted Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder ($35) all over her skin to set the look.
  • Then, Bedrani applied Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Rose Bloom ($24) to the star’s cheeks.

LIPS: A delicate, natural pink lip balanced the dramatic eyes.

  • She finished the glamorous look by layering Laura Mercier Lip Glacé in Bare Pink ($24) on top.

Makeup artist Tracey Levy created a “fresh and light” makeup look for actress Mila Kunis at the LA premiere of her movie, “OZ the Great and Powerful.” Inspired by the star’s “beautiful princess dress” by Dolce and Gabbana, Levy created a look that was “natural but effortlessly glamorous” with a “light touch of Audrey Hepburn.”

FLAWLESS FACE: “Natural and effortlessly glamorous.”

  • Levy prepped Kunis’ skin with RéVive Intensité Moisture Serum Extrême ($350) to restore the skin’s natural moisture, followed by Laura Mercier Foundation Primer ($32) to help her makeup look fresh through the entire evening. At this time, she also prepped Kunis’ lips with Laura Mercier Lip Silk ($22) adding extra moisture and nourishment.
  • Then, she applied Laura Mercier Oil-Free Suprême Foundation in Sunny Beige ($43) to even the surface of Kunis’ skin. She used a touch of Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-3 ($30) around her nose and under her eyes to conceal imperfections.
  • Next, she dusted Laura Mercier Invisible Loose Setting Powder in Universal ($35) on the skin and used a touch of Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder #2 ($22) to set the under-eye area.
  • Levy then contoured Kunis’ cheek bones using Laura Mercier Bronzing Powder in Golden Bronze ($32) and dusted the powder on her neck and chest to give her a glow from head-to-toe.

  • Then,she applied Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Rose Petal ($24) on the upper apples of Kunis’ cheeks and blended the shade with the existing shimmer.

  • Next, she contoured her eye crease lightly with Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Café au Lait ($23) for a bit of depth. Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Rose Gold ($24) was used as a highlight on the lids.
