I wanted to share with you some of the products I've discovered lately that I'm using on set and give you my honest opinion of them. I should point out some of them have been given to me by the companies and some of them I've purchased but I wanted to share the really great ones I'm the most excited about and that I've actually used at work.
I am also including all price points.
1- SHISEIDO's Shimmering Cream Eye Color- Ok- so all cream eye shadows crease right? well this one doesn't! It does dry down to a soft powdery look and doesn't look as "creamy" or "wet" as some others but it really gives a beautiful texture- makes it look as if you've spent a long time blending it- when maybe you just applied it with your fingers. Favorite colors are Sable, Leather and Meadow. Dick Page has done an amazing job with Shiseido's color line. You'll be impressed! $25

2- MARY KAY's Gel Eyeliner. Awesome! A great value at $16 the black is really black and the teal can be blended out for a soft look. Try applying a thick line at the base of the lashes and quickly blending it out with a brush for a great, fast smoky eye. Also, the brush that comes with it is really perfect for a precise application I just wish it wasn't a "limited edition" product so stock up while it's here.

3- COVERGIRL's LipPerfection Lipcolor lipstick in "Spellbound" and "Hot". Pat McGrath's Runway shades for COVERGIRL are a must- they are so pigmented and at around $6 you should own them all. They are wonderful and can compete with much more expensive ones!

4- NEUTROGENA's Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes. I hand these to everyone I'm working with who need to take their makeup off. And they even remove Waterproof mascara!! $6.49 for 25

5- CLE DE PEAU BEAUTE Concealer. It comes in 4 shades and I would tell any makeup artist to get them all. You can mix them to correct even the hardest under eye dark shadows. I barely swipe my finger on the stick as all you need is a touch of it on most people but oh so beautiful! At $70 each they're an investment though!
