JANE IREDALE “MORE LIP” LIP PLUMPER – My experience with lip plumping products could be summed up with the phrase “no pain, no gain.” This is because immediately after applying said lip product, my lips would undergo a lingering burning sensation before appearing “plumped.” Yet, Jane Iredale’s “More Lip” Lip Plumper gave my lips results while leaving them feeling cool instead of burned. And even better, there are time release ingredients in this product. So, as one ingredient wears off, another kicks in to continue the plumping action.
FINAL VERDICT GGI (GOTTA GET IT) – For the price, this sweet lip plumper is a must. The plump lasts, and without the burning sensation that comes with most plumpers. There’s no reason to dread applying it.
Meet The Mineral Beauty Producer
You may be aware that Jane Iredale was the first full makeup line on the market to offer not just color enhancement but also benefits to the skin. Less well-known, perhaps, is that before she formed her cosmetics company Jane’s background was in film, theatre and television. She started as a casting director working in television commercials with models like Lauren Hutton, Jaclyn Smith and Cybill Shepherd and then in film and television with actresses like Susan Sarandon, Glenn Close and Sarah Jessica Parker. She went on to form her own production company, and was nominated for a Tony Award for her work on Broadway. That’s quite a whirlwind career! Tod
JANE IREDALE LIQUID EYE LINER – This is a good liquid eye liner that comes in a five deep, rich colors (copper, dark brown, pinot noir, black, and even gold) and the tube is small and perfect for travel. I would recommend the pinot noir color (a gorgeous wine shade) for any girl with green eyes to really make those babies pop! However, the product doesn’t seem to last all day, at least on my eyes. I noticed some flaking when I tried to create the winged liner look; it spoiled the dramatic impact of the bat wing! I also wish the brush were felt tip instead– it would make applying liquid liner a lot easier. You need a very steady hand…
FINAL VERDICT – GGI (GOTTA GET IT) – Love the smoky colors, and love that its mineral makeup. It is also specially formulated for sensitive eyes.
THE SECRET TO A SMOOTH, EVEN COMPLEXION IS ALL ABOUT ERASERS
5 STEPS TO FLAWLESS
Think of camouflage after surgery, injections or lasers as a layering process. Try full coverage densely pigmented formulas that come in a pot, stick or tube. Liquids and creams are not usually opaque enough. If the cream is thick or firm, you can warm it up on your forehand or the microwave for a few seconds. Green toners neutralize redness. Flat marks, scars, and bruises will be easier to conceal than raised or depressed areas.
1. Choose a shade that best matches your skin tone. If you can’t find an exact match, use a slightly lighter shade and blend over it with a liquid or cream foundation t
