KJ B.'s (kjbennett) Beauty Product Reviews
If you love bright eyeshadow that goes on true to color...this is nirvana.
These psychotically bright and preposterously pigmented eyeshadows have become a cult sensation. If you're a pro artist and haven't heard about them...lift the rock you're living under and come play in the light with the rest of us.
Designer Amy Doan was on a quest to find bold makeup colors to compliment her vision of beauty. Theatrical makeup didn't match her quality and performance requirements, so she decided to create her own. The results are like no pressed eyeshadow I've ever used. Every makeup artist who dreams of the ULTIMATE bright matte eyeshadow can wake up, grab some Sugarpill and get back to business
A definite fave...
This is the setting spray you'll usually find in my makeup kit. It's a "must-have" for long days on set. The Urban Decay and Motives seting sprays are really good also...because they're made by Skindinavia. I prefer to go to the source and their multiple formulas meet all of my needs as a pro artist.
Full coverage lipstick with built-in gloss - done brilliantly!
The formula is a stroke of glossy genius. I know this concept has been done before, but never this well. The pigment level is substantial so the coverage is truly opaque and the finish is like patent leather - slick and super shiny. They have the BEST nude tones - Baby Jane, Edie and Diana are MUST HAVES. AND if you love true crayon red, Barracuda is insanely gorgeous.
Definitely a YES!
OCC SKIN: CONCEAL is formulated keeping that need for natural in mind and even addresses those vegan needs. They also paid attention to caring for skin, so I like that they added the Aloe Leaf Extract and Vitamin E.
To give it the pro edge, they made sure the formula was very opaque, but also creamy (not stiff or dry). It applies smoothly and conceals easily without looking heavy or mask-like. The satin-matte finish has a distinct skin-like appearance which makes it perfect for all media (print, film, video). And, it’s ideal for HD format …where skin needs to look “real”.
Bing, Bing, Bing - we have a winner here!
