Okay, the title made it sound like something nasty and seductive. Nasty-no; seductive-possibly. This is a loose shimmer powder by Hollywood makeup artist Tricia Sawyer. By the sound of it, the words "loose shimmer" may sound like a mess, but this powder is housed in a nifty container which makes the product spill-proof. There are 3 colors: Skinny, Ambitious, and Naked which retail for $22USD which can be found here.
I got this free not because ABT contacted me but because I signed up for their emails and they were giving away a bottle to the first certain number of subscribers. They never contacted me to review this.
Before I begin my review, the PR of Three Custom Color Specialists (3CC) contacted me and yes I got these free. Believe it or not I never tried the concealer/foundations. I don't know why and I really didn't understand why makeup artists raved about these concealers. But now I do.
Recently, as I was visiting my parallel universe (aka my non-virtual world), I walked into Walgreens and spotted these EOS Lip Balms. They were on sale for 2 for $5USD. I have many lip balms but never enough since I like to have them scattered all around the house. You know one at the kitchen sink, one by the bathroom sink, nightstand, TV area, computer desk, etc.. You just never know when your lips will be dry.
First of all, do not get this mixed up with squalene, this is squalane with an "a". Squalene is obtained from shark liver oil which also can be used as a moisturizer and in cosmetics. Squalane is the saturated form of squalene and may be obtained from animals but mostly it is obtained from olive oil. Squalane is also more stable and isn't as susceptible to oxidation which makes it ideal as a cosmetic product.
Three Custom Colors Specialists (3CC) has become an obscure line in the sense that it is hard to get in brick and mortar stores (Nordstrom used to carry it) and online it is available at some etailers but not many; the easiest place appears to be their website.
Thinking about makeup relaxes me. I guess it is like meditation even though when you meditate you aren't suppose to be thinking about anything. I tried that and I ended up asleep. So now I just daydream about makeup to ease my mind or to tune out people who are blabbering about uninteresting things. I thought I would let you readers get a peek inside my day dreams!
How can I resist a good sale. Yes, I bought brushes from Soft Surroundings, then the Becca Crème Eye Colours were on clearance for $4.99USD! These are usually priced at $28USD. I thought, "whatta bargain!" The only one that was sold out was Patina. I got the rest but not all are listed on the Becca website. I don't know if some are discontinued or not since I don't pay attention to any Becca news.
