Joe Blasco Cosmetics, Conclusion (for now)

Joe Blasco Ultamatte and UEM makeup brush

How To Use Ultamattes and How To Use the UEM Brush

As I become more familiar with many of the pro products especially Joe Blasco Ultamattes, I realize that these products are more detail oriented in application. This may sound tedious but it really isn't. It is just a matter of playtime (practice). If makeup were easy to apply especially the pro brands, there wouldn't be makeup schools.

Joe Blasco Cosmetics, Pt. 4

Ultamattes and the UEM Brush

I have to admit that I have had the hardest time writing a post about these Ultamattes.  I must have gone through about seven drafts before the final one.  The reason being I can't put into words what I feel about this pro product, well, more pro than any of the other ones I have used because this is really a movie industry product.

Joe Blasco Cosmetics, Pt. 3

Joe Blasco Lipsticks and Lip Highlighting

Yes, these lipsticks are a pro brand.  They come in four formulas: Velvet-creamy and extremely pigmented; Matte-extremely pigmented with a non-reflective surface; Sheer-least amount of pigment for translucent coverage; and Shimmer-same pigment amount as velvet but with reflective and opalescent particles.

Joe Blasco Cosmetics, Pt. 2

Corrective Pro Touch Highlighters

When I got these, I have to say that they really didn't impress me much.  The screw top container housed a pressed tablet of color (36mm), one in lemon yellow (Yellow Protouch) and the other in a creamy orange (Orange Protouch).

Oh Si! Si! More Lip Tars!

I ignored resisted caved and bought some of the new OCC (Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics) Lip Tars. I really did hold off purchasing the new colors because I felt I didn't need them. I was doing well until I had a strawberry milkshake. I gazed at the soft creamy swirl and realized, "Hey, it looks like the Hush Lip Tar!" I took it as a sign (more like an excuse) to buy the tars!
