Mischa Barton’s New Make-Up Line!

Image

When I was approached by Mischa Barton’s Brand Director, Jana Khamo, and I was a little hesitant to use a “celebrity” cosmetics line…because you never know who’s really creating it behind the scenes.

When Jana laid out Mischa’s beautiful designer bottles, tubes, compacts, and brushes, I was expecting to be underwhelmed but that could not have been further from the truth. Mischa’s foundation was light and silky. The foundation is just the right medium coverage make-up I look for to create a fresh clean look and I love the yellow base tones. The eye shadow palettes were really impressive. There is a pallet for every eye color and look I need to create. I particularly like how the shadows go on smooth and stay all day. The multi-dimensional bronzer takes care of a lot of multi-purposes when I’m on the set creating highlights, contouring beautiful cheek-bones or just combining all the colors for an even all over glow. The 3-in-1 stick is the answer to your late morning rush. You can glide this over eyelids, cheeks, and lips in less than 30 seconds, apply some mascara and finish off your look with the Coco Luster lip gloss and be out the door looking fabulous.

Beauty Review: Borghese B Lip Gloss

I love lip gloss. I have a serious problem. I am always looking for a new gloss. I know many of you have the same issue. It’s so easy to get carried away and not realize how many you have. Once I emptied my purse and found that I had 12 glosses in there!

There are so many different formulas. Every line has a gloss. How do you know which one to buy? A lot of companies claim to be more moisturizing, have more vitamins, more pigment, less pigment, anti-aging ingredients, sunscreen. The claims never end. I am going to try a new gloss every week and narrow it down to the best gloss!

First up is Borghese B Lip Gloss in Fiore. The color is great. A beautiful shimmery nude. Too much sparkle so the more mature ladies doesn’t have to worry about the sparkles. This is a very sophisticated shimmer. The formula is a bit sticky and when I rub my lips together I can feel the thick formula because it is a long wear formula. There is no sunscreen in this formula. This is a deal breaker for me. Protect your lips!

So, beautiful color, sticky and thick formula, no sunscreen. However it does keep the lips hydrated with Aloe, Jojoba Oil, and Avocado Oil. I give this lip gloss two stars.

My Top Ten Products!

Everyone always asks what my favorite products are. So I put together a top 10 list. It was hard choosing the products I love so many. These are the absolute best of the best ad I recommend them to everyone.

10) Bobbi Brown White Pressed Powder

This powder is so light you can’t see it over your make-up. I use the white shade because my skin is on the fair side.

9) Clinique City Block Oil Free SPF 40

This sunblock makes the list because it is packed with healthy ingredients for your skin and the level of Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide are higher than most sunscreens. I need a sunscreen that will last all day under my make up.

8) Make Up Forever HD Liquid Foundation

This foundation gives a flawless, luminous, porcelain look. I love this product. It is the perfect make-up for film, television, photo shoots, and everyday. The pigments are so fine you can’t see it. Talk about glowy beautiful skin. Here is is!

7) Make Up Forever HD Blush

Blush is a hard thing to get right. I find that most people put on too much or not enough. This blush makes it easy. You only need a tiny drop per cheek and you have great color. The pigment is very fine like the foundation. So your cheek is left looking hydrated and smooth with a perfectly blended touch of color. This is my go to blush on a daily basis.

6)Clinique Black Honey

Black Honey makes the list because it is the shade for everyone. If you want sexy pouty lips that are kissable, this is the product for you. The Almost Lipstick Collection is hydrating, lasts quite a while, and adds a touch of color. Black Honey enhances your natural lip color.

5) L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara

I use this mascara on myself and on set. This mascara brush is ideal for getting all those little lashes and adds volume and length. This cream based formula doubles your lashes and the black shade is very deep and sultry.

4) Arbonne Bronzer

This is my favorite bronzer because it is the perfect shade for everyone. Not only is Arbonne known for having some of the healthiest products for skin on the market but the make-up goes on smooth, looks natural, and has a soft finish. I don’t go anywhere without this bronzer to give me a gorgeous glow that looks natural.

3)Nerium-AD Night Treatment

NeriumAD Age-Defying Treatment is a night cream developed from the patent-pending extract of the Nerium oleanderplant. NeriumAD contains the most effective age-defying ingredients, chosen for both their individual and synergistic benefits. These premium ingredients are blended at optimum levels to nourish your skin and third-party clinical trials show that NeriumAD dramatically reduces the appearance of:

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Hyperpigmentation

Uneven Skin Texture

Enlarged Pores

Aging or Sun-Damaged Skin

The first time I used this product I felt the difference. This is my skin care secret weapon.

2) Urban Decay Naked Palette

This is my go to palette. It has everything from natural matte to dramatic and sparkly.  These shades are gorgeous. I could do a thousand different looks with these shades and they are all in one place.

1) Clinique Superbalm Lip Treatment

This product is my number one because it goes with me everywhere. I am always smoothing this on. Everyone needs a clear gloss. Why not use one that is good for your lips? This gloss lasts longer than any other gloss. because it is a balm it will moisturize much more and your lip color lasts that much longer. If you don’t want clear it comes in some fun color shades also.

Bonus!: Clarisonic Brush

I can’t live with out my Mia Clarisonic Brush. This brush gets everything off. No matter how many products you use to clean your face you will never get it all off. This brush does just that. If you have a hard time with acne, dry skin, or oil this brush will get through dead skin and give your skin the best exfoliation ever. Everyone should own one
