[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

Hey folks!

So one brand that has a kind of a sleeper status is Laura Mercier.  Professionals have been for years singing the praises of their foundations, including the best-selling Tinted Moisturizer.  Most tinted moisturizers aim to give sheer to light coverage, basically just to brighten the complexion and some evening of the skintone.

Laura Mercier just recently released their liquid tinted moisturizer in a convenient compact!

From PR:

Laura’s latest innovation features a lightweight crème formula that gives skin a dewy, natural-looking finish ideal for all skin types.  With SPF 20 and a hint of color, this portable compact is perfect for travel and touch ups on the go.  It’s a breakthrough for the Flawless Face!

The Tinted Moisturizer Crème Compact also boasts:

  • A lightweight formula that moisturizes and hydrates the skin
  • Provides sheer to moderate, buildable coverage with a hint of color for a natural look
  • Long wearing formula (6-8 hours) ideal for active lifestyles
  • Broad spectrum SPF 20 provides UVA and UVB protection
  • Visibly evens skintone and softens fine and dry lines
  • Upon application, skin is brighter, more even-toned, and dark spots and imperfections look visibly diminished.
  • Features Vitamin C, which has skin brightening properties
  • Contains the antioxidants Vitamins C and E to help protect skin from environmental elements

Hey!

So NARS is releasing their new line of tinted moisturizers for Spring 2012.  I think these were first seen at NY Fashion week last autumn.

From NARS:

NARS founder and creative director François Nars is famous for his no-rules approach to makeup application. But when it comes to what lies beneath, his philosophy is clear:  Skin should shine through makeup.  To that end, NARS Cosmetics went about creating a tinted moisturizer unlike any other — a complexion-perfecting fluid with anti-aging and skin-brightening benefits.

Introducing OCC Tint

Hey!

Last Friday I had the privilegde of attending the launch of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics’ new line of tinted moisturizers called OCC Tint.  This event took place at the Wonderland Beauty Parlour in the Meatpacking District.  What a great way to start off the weekend, playing with makeup!

OCC continues to expand its OCC Skin product line (they introduced a line of vegan brushes this year) and this time they have focused on lightweight makeup suitable for today’s hi-definition standards.

According to OCC:

OCC Tint, our hand-applied tinted moisturizer boasts an unparalleled amount of adjustable coverage, available in a wide range of ultra-moisturizing shades that look as great in person as they do in close-up on HDTV and in a hi-res digital photograph. This alternative to airbrush application is already a Make-Up Artists’ favorite, recently field-tested by the Artists at OCC during New York and Los Angeles Fashion Week.

BECCA brings beautiful skin!

Hey!

Today I’m going to review the Aussie cosmetics line BECCA.  I was first introduced to this line years ago when they were sold at Bergdorf Goodman in NYC.  What initially attracted me to this line, was the array of foundation colours! I literally did a double take, an Australian line, with a pretty extensive colour range? Whaaaaaat!

Then they kinda disappeared.  They were only available online.  Then sometime last year, I discovered that they reappeared at some of the rebranded Duane Reade pharmacies.

So here is a little background on the brand.  According to the website:

“The whole philosophy of BECCA is about creating a natural, flawless look. It’s really about skin looking amazing – everything else is secondary.”
– Rebecca Morrice Williams, Founder

So they’re really into flawless skin for people of ALL races, ethnicities, ages and they really focus on perfecting the skin.  Their 3-step system consists of Preparing, Perfecting and Setting.  Their products contain antioxidants vitamins, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, also advanced pigment technology (for a weightless, natural finish) and broad spectrum SPF.  They have this beachy, barely-there, easy-going vibe that I like.

I have tested out 4 products.
