My obsession searching for the perfect Red Lipstick has been re-awakened.  I made a New discovery - True Red by Revlon.
Who said Drugstore Red Lipstick wasn’t on equal standing with her Department store sister?
True Red by Revlon is part of Revlon’s ColorBurst Collection.  The formula is feather weight-light, glides on smoothly, hydrates, and feels like second skin.
The rich pigmented color can be layered on for a sheer or heavier application.  The intensity of the color had me in rapture – bliss. I’m so enamoured I’m going to wear it again tomorrow!
True Red by Revlon is gorgeous and Citygirl approved!
Available at Walgreens and Target

jane iredale creates cosmetics that compliment all skin tones, which explains why I’ve been able to wear colors I never thought I could wear before.  Leave it to jane iredale to create another amazing product:  Moonglow.

I played with each color – I was like a kid in a candy store. Jane Iredale makes it easy to get ready in the mornings, especially if we’re running late.  I love the pretty compacts filled with the perfect color combination for my complexion. 

Moonglow left my skin with a sheer and natural flushed glow.  I was glowing from within, even with my new airbrushed tan I could see the touch of color that radiated beneath my skin.  I had my glow on and everyone noticed, even the guys crossing the street!

Jane Iredale makeup is long wearing, crease proof, hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested.  Moonglow is perfect for highlighting and contouring everywhere, including the décolleté.   The soft-focus minerals make blendability easy for that natural touch of color. 

I added a hint of shimmer to my face, lips and eyes, it gave me the appearance of wearing eye shadow and enhancing my non-surgical eye lift.    

I was luminous, radiant and happy.   Moonglow by jane iredale is Citygirl approved!

This pink tube of  mascara is the real deal, no hype here.  I’m leery of Drugstore Mascara, for obvious reasons.  I’ve been fooled before by magazine editorials into buying that other pink tube only to be disappointed.
New Max Volume by Rimmel London dries in less than 10 seconds, and creates longer, thicker more beautiful lashes!  It’s waterproof so eye drops don’t create a problem mid-day. Plus the Keratin helps make your lashes stronger, sleeker and shinier.  The Collagen thickens the lashes for lush luxurious lashes.  Getting the chic London Vibe is easy with Rimmel London, channeling Kate Moss anyone?
This is one pink tube of mascara I’d buy again!

Burt’s Bees has been around for the past 25 years – they create natural products that are earth friendly and good for you too!  The skincare and lip balm products are enriched with botanicals and essential oils for natural goodness.

Through out my wanderings I discovered their NEW Tinted Lip Balm.  I was immediately drawn to the ecco friendly packaging and couldn’t resist. 

I’m not into lip balms especially tinted lip balms, this is my sister Wendy’s catagory – but the packaging just hooked me in and my color of choice was Rose.

I’m in LOVE! The color is a sheer pink/red that creates the perfect bee stung pout! My lips looked naturally pretty and plump!

My goal is to wear less makeup, but to keep my signature RED lip color.  Burt’s Bees makes it possible.  There are 6 colors to choose from, one for everyone! And ladies, there are two reds to choose from!

I applied the lipstick easily, and without a lip pencil.  I sat there in front of the mirror playing with the color, each time achieving a different shade.  I especially loved how the natural light reflected from the jewel tone color of the lipstick enhancing my complexion. Plus the lipstick smelled like Tahitian Vanilla – yummy!

Valentina is a ruby-red, a gorgeous shade for those of us beginning to channel our inner Goddess. Valentina evokes passion and that 1930′s glamour.

Senna cosmetics is the brainchild of celebrity makeup artist, and Emmy award nominee Eugenia Watson.  Working in television taught Eugenia how lighting, fashion and makeup intersect.  I’ts about Beauty - Illusion – Transformation.
