Marula Pure Marula Facial Oil ($78 for 1.69 oz, $58 for 1 oz, $15 for .23 oz) — Specially formulated for the face and neck, premium Marula Oil is a naturally soothing treatment that provides intense hydration, protection, and rejuvenation to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for soft, radiant skin.

The deliciously fresh scent that stems from a one percent essential oil blend and provides a total sensory experience upon application, then dissipates so it won’t fight your fragrance.
What I think: My skin has been a bit chapped lately. This oil soothes chapped and red skin. The scent is mild and warm, very nice. I use it on my face, but it is also great for cuticles!

I have a BIG Fall makeup post today! I have recently received some fab new fall makeup to try out. I have made a list of my 10 fave items from 5 stellar brands: Laura Mercier, tarte, Pur Minerals, Laura Geller and It Cosmetics:
1. tarte Amazonian clay full coverage airbrush foundation ($36 USD) — Introducing the latest addition to the Amazonian clay foundation line for total complexion perfection! Amazonian clay full coverage airbrush foundation delivers flawless, natural-looking coverage that lasts, while the skintuitive™ formula invigorates skin tone and texture for a youthful complexion. Powered by Amazonian clay enriched with the Earth’s natural, light-reflecting gemstones, this moisture-rich powder buffs on smoothly for waterproof, 12-hour coverage that won’t settle into fine lines and wrinkles. Available in 11 shades to perfectly compliment a wide range of skin tones and undertones, this innovative foundation also employs a custom mesh delivery system for a fool-proof, mess-free application every time.
What I think: If you are looking for a natural coverage foundation that is good for you, this is the perfect one! I buff it on with tarte’s Airbuki Foundation Brush. It covers red spots and imperfections but really looks just like your own skin! And it is so fast to apply!
2. Laura Geller CC Cream Compact w/ SPF 25 ($35 USD) So many benefits–just one compact! This antiaging compact creme foundation helps even out your complexion with a color-correcting peach swirl–but it doesn’t stop there. Boasting conditioning ingredients, the weightless formula also helps to protect against sun damage and prevent the look of lines, wrinkles, and sun spots. From Laura Geller. More info:
0.37-oz CC Creme Compact Color Correcting Swirl Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 25
Light: very fair or fair to light skin tones
Medium: light to medium skin tones
Tan: light olive skin to lightly tanned skin
Made in Italy/Korea
What I think: I have lots of BB, CC and even a DD liquid foundation, but this is my first CC crème contact. I am testing this in light, and really enjoy it for a full coverage look. I apply this with my BeautyBlender and it goes on perfectly. So smooth and pretty, it really evens out my skin tone.
3. Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Mystical ($23 USD) — An innovative wet/dry Eye Colour formula featuring Baked technology in beautiful shades that last all day. Magical and Mystical are limited edition shades included in the new Dark Spell collection.
What I think: Black smoky eyes are hot again this fall. This shadow has a little sparkle in it and is perfect for a night out. Really great color payoff as well.
4. Laura Geller INKcredible Gel Eyeliner Pencil ($20 USD) — INKcredible Waterproof Gel Eyeliner Pencil is waterproof glide-on color stays put from day to night, delivering powerful, vibrant, multi-dimensional color.
– Precision tip allows for even application.
– Highly pigmented formula stays vibrant all day.
– Super soft means no pulling or skipping during application.
4 colors: Purple Rain, Blue Jean Baby, Teal Waters and After Midnight.
What I think: I have always been a fan on Laura Geller’s pencil eyeliners. I have been using this in Purple Rain. It is a gorgeous shimmering shade of purple. This is a very soft pencil, so make sure that you don’t press too hard (like I did). You could lose the point. But, it does last all day and all shades are gorgeous for fall!
5. Purminerals Big Blink Mascara ($20 USD) Fake a full night’s sleep with Pür Minerals Big Blink Mascara. Fortified with Argan Oil, Big Blink nourishes lashes for stronger, fuller eyelashes that are less likely to break or fallout. The clump-resistant wand easily glides over the lashes for an even application and coats the hard-to-reach inner corners for a complete set of luscious lashes.
What I think: This mascara gives great volume and keeps lashes healthy at the same time! The thing I love most about this mascara is that my lashes don’t get sticky and lumpy after I apply it. It looks fresh all day. This has a hard plastic brush which really separates the lashes.
6. tarte lights, camera, flashes™ statement mascara ($23 USD) — Take your lashes to the extreme with this ultra-black mascara that lengthens, curls and magnifies for an intensified look proven to increase lash volume by 752% instantly!
Take your sultry, flashy lashes to the extreme with this amped up, ultra-black mascara that lengthens, curls and magnifies lashes for an intensified look proven to increase lash volume by 752% instantly! Powered by tarte’s proprietary triple black complex, this longwear, vitamin-infused formula emphasizes length and volume while conditioning lashes for a dramatic look that won’t dry out, flake or budge.
The custom-engineered, dual-molded brush boosts even the skinniest lashes for an exaggerated, voluminous look. First, the shorter, denser side of the brush delivers the optimal amount of mascara to volumize and coat each lash perfectly, then the longer, firmer side of the brush lengthens and separates for maximum volume without clumping.
What I think: This is currently my favorite mascara. I use the longer side first so that when I apply it I won’t get lumpy lashes, then the short side for more volume, but you can play with it to see the perfect application for you. And boy, the results! My short, stubby lashes looks so long and lush! Awesome!
7. Pur Minerals Lip Gloss Stick ($15 USD) A bold lip makes a statement and pulls the look together quickly. Loaded with rich emollients and vitamin E, these buttery smooth sticks condition lips as they color for a smoother, softer pout with each application. Slick on the richly pigmented, bold color of a Pür Minerals Lip Gloss Stick available in fall’s hottest shades including: Coralline – a juicy coral, Game Day – our signature classic red, Daredevil – a punchy light red and Spiked Punch – sheer hot pink.
What I think: I have this in an older color called Honey Pie (above), which is a perfect neutral for fall. The stick itself is very moisturizing on the lips and leaves a soft, glossy finish. Very nice!
8. It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Blush™ Hydrating Gloss Stain ($24 USD) — Stay hydrated in the summer heat with the new IT Cosmetics Vitality Lip Blush Hydrating Gloss Stain which is infused with nine butter and oils that will pamper your lips without that giving them that sticky feeling. This lightweight serum repairs and protect while offering a beautiful pigmented shine. Available in four shades, Inspiring Red is the one shown.
What I think: The mixture of a stain and a moisturizing gloss is genius — soft lips and color that lasts all day! I always love It Cosmetics products because of the wonderful quality and skincare benefits. Very luxe.
9. Laura Mercier Lip Plumper in Charmed ($30 USD) — Lips look visibly fuller, healthier, sexier with a dose of colour and high-definition shine.
What I think: I have a lot of Laura Mercier glosses, but this is the first lip plumper I have tried from the brand. It does not sting, but does plump well and is not sticky! I am testing a limited edition color called Charmed. It is a light peach sheer color and is gorgeous, perfect with the hot black smoky eye!
10. It Cosmetics Limited Edition Heavenly Luxe™ Vanity Brush Set ($39 USD) Feather your way to happiness with this 6-pc Limited Edition Heavenly Luxe Vanity Brush Set made from 100 percent Ultra Plush, Cruelty Free Bristles. The chic and innovative set is sure to give you that airbrushed finish, for makeup application on the go!
What I think: I am so loving this brush set — and what a great price for the quality! My teenage daughter has stolen most of my eye shadow brushes, so I was glad to get a couple in this kit. You also get a large powder brush, a foundation brush, and a concealer brush, along with the three eye brushes.

I have been so lucky to receive some beautiful makeup lately for review! Some has been from the lovely makeup artist and cosmetic creator Laura Geller. She creates long wearing products that come in the most beautiful colors.
Here are some that I have been currently enjoying:
Laura Geller Bright Lids, Big City Baked Collection ($39 USD) — A collection of three Sugared Baked Pearl Eye Shadows in megawatt shades. Day or night, big-city shindig or impromptu brunch, light up your looks instantly with just a few sweeps of show-stopping color. Transforming your lids into light-catching, dazzling eyes has never been this electrifying.
0.06-oz Sugared Baked Pearl Eye Shadow in Tribeca Blue, a satiny electric cobalt shade
0.06-oz Sugared Baked Pearl Eye Shadow in Upper East Side Purple, a luxe metallic grape shade
0.06-oz Sugared Baked Pearl Eye Shadow in Soho Pink, a glimmering magenta shade
Made in Italy
Laura Geller Inkwell Waterproof Gel Liners ($16.50 USD) — Inkwell Waterproof Gel liner is one of the best, the silkiest and the most long-wearing gel-based liner you’ll ever get your hands on. A special gel silicon resin gives the no-budge, transfer-resistant formula its luxurious feel and crease-free finish. Unlike other gel liners that tend to dry out, Inkwell stays soft, moist and emollient, thanks to a well of skin-loving ingredients: VitaminE, Wheat Germ Oil and Jojoba Oil. You’ll love how easy it is to apply. And, once it sets, you’ll forget it’s even there. (You’ll simply be reminded of it when people compliment your gorgeous gaze!).
The shades are:
Black is a classic inky hue that goes on rich.
Purple is an elegant aubergine that creates a bedazzling gaze.
Laura Geller Lip Dream – Cream Berry ($23.50 USD) A colorful palette of pink and burgundy shades for kissable lips. This lip palette adds pop for people of all skin tones and types. It’s a quartet of super-wearable lip colors in one sleek compact. Use one stripe or combine them all–so many options, so many effects. The texture is sueded and cushiony, combining the coverage of a lipstick with the comfort and shine of a gloss. Wear each shade individually, in layers, or blended together by sweeping your fingertip or a brush across the colors. For the smoothest, most precise, and longest wearing results, apply by brush (not included).
Laura Geller Bright Lips, Big City Collection ($36 USD) This collection captures the vibrant hues of the brightly lit New York City skyline at night in three luminous Lip Pops Waterproof Lip Glosses. Each show-stopping shade goes on creamy and leaves a natural-looking tint on lips. This creamy and luxurious lip gloss combines the pout-enhancing qualities of a gloss with the long-lasting finish of a stain. The lip-softening formula packs in cottonseed oil and vitamin E for the most pillowy results.
0.12-fl oz Lip Pops Waterproof Lip Gloss in Midtown Melon, a juicy, electric melon shade
0.12-fl oz Lip Pops Waterproof Lip Gloss in Nolita Pink, a delicious pink shade
0.12-fl oz Lip Pops Waterproof Lip Gloss in Broadway Berry, a dazzling raspberry shade
Summer is on it’s way! Actually, it feels like it is here in Kansas City. It is supposed to be in the 80’s all week. So it is time to break out the bronzers and light summer makeup.
So I have to say yay for Laura Geller’s Glow-n-Behold kit. This isn’t only for Summer, but makes you look like you have been enjoying the fresh air and relaxation that the season can bring.
I always love the quality of Laura’s makeup and this set is no different.

Finish by applying highlighter over the concealer for luminosity, also dabbing it over cheekbones, brow bones, the center of the nose, and other areas you wish to highlight.
Baked Body Frosting: Using the Body Puff, apply all over skin. Build layers for a deeper bronze. Want richer color? Simply dampen puff and apply over areas you want to intensely tan.
Baked Blush Mono Cheek Color: Using a powder brush (not included), apply on apples of cheeks, blending towards the hairline.
Double-Dipped Lipstick 2-in-1 Creamy Lip Color: Apply directly from tube. For more precise application, use a lip brush (not included) to line and fill in. Wear one shade or blend for a customized look.
What I think: I like all of these products and think that this is a pretty amazing collection.
The concealer is very creamy and fun to use. You can used one shade (I used the lightest under my eyes) or combine to get a custom look. I use the second lightest shade to cover blemishes and a combo to cover redness. This works very well.
The bronzer is great for legs, but is very dark. If you are light-skinned like myself, use very sparingly. Can be used on the face, but is too dark for me. The color is good, but a little sparkly, so be aware.
The blush is a beautiful color — really pretty! I think this would look fantastic on all skin tones.
The lipstick is also gorgeous. I love the pink color, but the bronze is nice, too. They also look fab combined!
