CAMP GORGEOUS is here at NM Bellevue! I love this time of the year because my wonderful clients come and visit me, but more importantly, it gives me a chance to learn more about the different products we have. Yesterday, I decided to try something fun, come in with not a drop of anything on my face and visit the different counters to learn a little about their favorite products, my own version of Beauty Boot Camp.
REVIVE LIP SERUM $150
I use this every morning and night. To get your kissable lips try this amazing lip serum leaving your lips visibly plump by filling in lines and wrinkles. It also helps hydrate leaving them soft and supple. No more little pesky lines left by drinking from straws!
REVIVE INTENSITE VOLUMIZING EYE SERUM $350
Bye, bye dark circles. This eye changing serum helps visibly plump, rebuild and re-contour the delicate eye area, filling in deep "hollows". Say hello to younger, brighter and visibly rejuvenated looking eyes.
NATURA BISSE C+C VITAMIN SPLASH REVITALIZING SPRAY $55
Let me just start by telling you how delicious this is on the skin. One spray leaves your skin feeling refreshed, moisturized and soothed. It also helps tone and decongest the skin, oh, and it smells divine!
NATURA BISSE C+C VITAMIN COMPLEX $190
Hello anti-aging serum and lots of Vitamin C! Vitamin Complex has the lightest texture that feels like butter on your skin and of course the delicious scent from the Vitamin C (6%!). If used daily, it will help repair and protect your skin from free radicals, sun and environmental pollutants.
CHANEL HYDRA BEAUTY FLASH $55
This multi-functional primer is not only a primer but a light weight oil-free moisturizer giving the skin an instant blur effect. This IS how you get smooth glowing skin!
BASE OMBRE A PAUPIERES $32
Let's just pause here for a second ladies. Ever wonder how to get to that perfectly blended super pigment shadow? It literally starts with a good eyeshadow primer. Eyeshadow primer smoothes out the eye, prevents creasing and gives your shadow something to hold on to. I love that the Chanel shadow primer comes in a nifty clicky stick, so convenient!
KEVYN AUCOIN EYESHADOW SINGLE #104 SOFT CLAY $30
KEVYN AUCOIN THE LOOSE SHIMMER SHADOW TAUPAZ AND SANDSTONE $29
The only reason I am a makeup artist is because of Kevyn Aucoin. His books filled my imagination with the makeup as art. Even though he is no longer in this world, his makeup line is his legacy and golly are we lucky to have that available to us. I love the pigmentation of the shadows. Looking for a good base try the single shadow. If you are a makeup novice, then the loose shimmer shadow is a perfect pick. Don't even get me started on the perfection of the Rose Quartz color, I could literally write a whole post on it.
YSL DESSIN DU REGARD WATERPROOF EYE PENCIL BLACK $ 30
It's smooth like butter but the pigment, oh the beautiful pigment is so deep. This long lasting pencil is exactly what these watery eyes need when I want to go for that smokey look. It comes in an array of colors, my favorite is the Aubergine, a beautiful brown red for that super chic goth look.
LANCOME GRANDIOSE MASCARA $32
Big bold lashes. Finally a mascara wand that makes sense for easy application. This lovely mascara with give you volume, length and curl. Just make sure to use a really great eye makeup remover to get this thick goodness off your eyes at night.
DIOR ALL-IN-BROW 3D BROW CONTOUR KIT $52.00
DIOR UNIVERSAL BROW STYLER $29
You all know I am a brow girl. I have dedicated many posts on my love of brows and how they change the look of your face. So when a new brow product comes out, I can't wait to get my hands on it and take it for a test run. If you aren't comfortable with my Eye and Brow Maestro and love a good powder, then Dior has it! If you love a great pencil, then duh, the Universal Brow Pencil is a classic. I of course used both because Im greedy and love as many brow products on my brows as possible.
GIORGIO ARMANI LUMINOUS SILK FOUNDATION $64
You all know the drill here. LUMINOUS SILK FOUNDATION GIVES ME LIFE. Yassssssss, girl. Medium coverage, luminous finish and a weightless finish. If you don't have it already, you are missing out. I love my foundation.
DIOR DIORSKIN STAR CONCEALER $36
There is so much buzz on social media about this concealer, so I was happy to finally try it. Great full coverage with easy application, Diorskin neutralized my dark circles and gave me a smooth undereye. Let's just put it this way, it was so good that I bought one on Sunday (I never buy makeup unless its good).
CHANTECAILLE HD PERFECTING POWDER $74
CHANTECAILLE HD PERFECTING BRONZER $74
Both of these are now officially on my buy list. Why you may ask, well let me just say, I have NEVER felt a powder so finely milled and make my skin look oh so smooth as this HD powder from Chantecaille. It was created for HD cameras, so yes, its perfect for my everyday selfies.
BRONZE GODDESS MEDIUM $37
Just look at the difference a little bronzer makes. Using a bronzer is a great way to do a natural contour. Bronze Goddess is smooth and beautifully pigmented, and they offer a color for all skin tones.
CHANEL ANGELED POWDER BRUSH #2 $60
Oooooooooo...brush heaven. No really, brush heaven.
LANCOME LIMITED EDITION BLUSH SUBTIL CUSHION SORBET CARMEL $39
There is a big trend happening with cushion makeup. At first I didn't get it, especially with the foundations. However, I do get it with blush. I love the lightness and natural flush that this product gives. It's a little scary to apply at first but once you get your technique (try applying it with a flat foundation brush for control) it really just gives the right amount of color.
YSL TOUCH ECLAT $42
This spa-in-a-stick gives you the look of 8 hours sleep in just a few strokes. A must have for everyone!
TOM FORD LIP INDIAN ROSE $52
Take home your own little bit of Tom Ford luxury with the perfect lip stick. Full pigment and incredibly moisturizing to your lips.
CHANEL LIP PRECISION LIP DEFINER $31
Finish your lips with this long-lasting, full-coverage colour with a semi-matte finish glides on to soften and soothe lips, and ensures lipstick stays in place while extending its wear.
