Femme Fetch: Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream SPF30 -Dark Spot Correcting

I’m already a huge fan of tinted moisturizers, correcting creams, beauty balms, and any cosmetic aids assisting in fooling the world;Smashbox definitely feeds into this obsession. So let’s get to it.

So Femme-

  • light, buildable coverage great for everyday
  • great as primer under foundation
  • a little goes a long way
  • SPF!!!!! WE LOVE SPF!!!!
  • dark spot correcting.
  • matte/semi-matte finish

So NOT-

  • 5 shades-the blend ability and light formula make the shades work for many, but us dark girls once again don’t get the benefit of this. Would love maybe a warmer,”Deep Dark”  shade not just “Dark”.

Multi-taskers are the future of makeup and I believe Smashbox understands that more than most cosmetic brands. The Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream appears to fade discoloration slightly, but be sure to keep up a good skincare regimen also. Think of this product as an aid, NOT a solution. 

Still love the Maybelline XXL mascara. I have to be honest in saying that it’s probably my favorite mascara of all time. I find myself always repurchasing it. Perfect sized brush, primer for my lashes, and gives a nice dramatic look.

Femme Fetch: VS Pro Pout FX Lip Primer and Definer
I am a fan of Victoria’s Secret makeup especially the VS Pro stuff. I really think the line excels with products intended to help you get the most wear and durability out of your makeup. The VS Pro Pout FX Lip Primer and Definer is an amazing product. Put simply, it works. The promise is to prevent smearing and feathering specifically when going for a fuller lipped look. If you tend to draw outside your natural lip line to get a bigger pout, you want this product. 
So Femme !!!

Femme Fetch: Ben Nye Banana Powder and Mojave Contour Wheel

Not sure why I haven’t tried the Ben Nye Banana Powder yet, but excited to finally see what all the fuss is about. I swatched a number of the luxury powders in different shades and the banana powder seemed to work best despite it’s distinct difference from my skintone. I find this powder to be awesome and oh so femme for setting your highlight. 

Ben Nye’s Mojave Contour Wheel was a great find for the price of $14 USD alone. Great shades for ethnic skin and I suggest everyone look into a contour wheel that corresponds with your skintone no matter what it is. The shades have great color pay off and blend well. 

Look for an updated foundation video with contouring and highlighting within the next week. Super excited, hope you are too. 

Be Bold, Be Femme!!!

Loving this full coverage foundation. This stuff is the ultimate in covering up any and everything, can even work as a concealer. Great on all skin types and is  especially perfect for us oily femmes wanting a foundation to stay put all day. Also loving the Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation for day to day wear.

Femme Boy: Very nice work, girlie!!!! Nice blending at crease and I love the sharp edge from corner of eye to brow, I feel like it makes eye makeup look very clean and striking. Think Grace Jones, makeup with strong defined lines. 

Femme Boy Gives Quick Tips

Here is my video entry for the Allure Beauty Blogger Contest back in May. It hasn’t seen the light of day, so I thought I would share it with my fierce femme followers. I lost the contest but this video is one of my best, the contest really pushed me to a new level. 

Femme Fetch: Bare Escentuals Flawless Definition Mascara
Thanks to a care package from Planet Beauty. com, I got to try out the Bare Escentuals Flawless Definition Mascara. I honestly would have never tried this mascara otherwise, but I was pleasantly suprised. I am a sucker for packaging and glamourous advertising which Bare Escentuals isn’t necessarily known for. But all that matters at the end of the day is the results and this mascara delivers. This is an ideal mascara for defined and separated lashes. Can be worn for a natural everyday look best, but drama can be achieved with a few extra coats.  Femme Fetch: Bare Escentuals Flawless Definition Mascara

Femme Fetch: Wet n’ Wild Lipsticks

I am a true makeup snob and I was extremely skeptical of anything Wet n’ Wild minus the solid liquid liner I tried years ago. So I recently gave in and purchased one of the Wet n’ Wild Mega Last Matte Lipsticks along with the Silk Finish Lipstick for a grand total $3.26. I must say I was impressed, the matte lipstick has strong color payoff with a decent wear time especially considering the price point.

Is anyone else as femininely fixated on Wet n’ Wild as I am? 

Femme Fetch: MAC 163 Flat Contour Brush
I am currently obsessing over this brush. I havent purchased it yet, but I am dying too. I honestly believe it is the ultimate contouring brush specifically for creams. The shape will create a strong line but the stiffness of the bristles will help blend the cream down. Not sure about this brush for powder contouring, but I am sure it’s fine. I think I would favor the NARS contouring brushes for powder.

Femme Fetch: Victoria’s Secret VS Perfect Lipstick
I was totally impressed with the VS Perfect Lipstick from Victoria’s Secret. Ages ago, I was in love with a lipgloss of their’s, but haven’t had much VS in rotation lately. I picked up their Perfect Lipstick in the shade Scrumptious and it is the perfect nude pink. What I love most about these lipsticks is the color pay off with the semi-glossy finish. The stuff is pigmented really well. Extreme color pay off like a matte lipstick with the smooth application of a lip balm. I love it under a nice gloss or alone. Victoria’s Secret is great for fitting somewhere in the middle between drugstore cosmetics and department/high end cosmetics in terms of pricing and quality. I say give this lipstick a go if you want to stay fiercely and frugally femme!!!!
