Product Review: Smashbox Lash DNA Mascara

by Bionic Beauty on 25.Oct.2009 · 2 comments

Smashbox recently sent me a sample of their new Lash DNA Mascara. Honestly, I’ve only tried a few Smashbox products but their marketing style appeals to me. I like their indie-feel, slightly against the grain packaging; and I adore their eyeshadow pots.

I whipped out this mascara immediately and began my testing. Lash DNA is marketed to “repair previous lash damage” as well as enhancing curl and adding extreme volume. Sadly, I didn’t notice much enhancement or added length- it seemed barely visible.

Today’s article comes to you from special guest contributor, Kimberly. Kimberly is the creator Beauty Luxe and the founder of The HyperLuxe Media Network. Feel free to contact her via twitter @Kimberly4Nicole.

The best beauty collections are released during the warmer months. Think about it. When do you see the most vibrant colors and playful products? Summertime is a beauty lovers dream. This season, all the biggies have released amazing collections from MAC’s fierce Style Warrior to Bobbi Brown’s soothing Nauticals. There are so many amazing new products, I can hardly wait to get my hands on them all. This Summer’s makeup must haves are nothing, if not diverse.

Why It’s A Must Have:
Tropic is a new addition to the NARS family found in the Summer 2009 collection. NARS is known for their incredible pigments. Their rich, brilliant colors are nearly unmatched (MAC gives them a run for their money), and I’m feening for this vibrant teal with silver specks. It’s a perfect addition to any summer makeup kit. Who doesn’t need another nighttime eyeshadow?

Spring 2009: Lip color suggestions, part 1

by Bionic Beauty on 16.Feb.2009 · 11 comments

Spring is just around the corner and rather than post all the press releases about new collections being released, I thought we’d step outside the box and look at lip colors that are light, bright, and perfect for Spring 2009.

Spring 2009 lip color suggestions from Bionic Beauty

Clinique Long Last glosswear SPF 15 in Mystic. Cost: $14.00 at Clinique.comClinique long lasting lip gloss. Mystic is a super cool grape gloss with silver shimmer. It’s gorgeous on; my photo does not do this gloss justice! Great for spring if you want a darker lip look (like me) or tend to look washed out when wearing all the light pinks and corals.

L’Oreal Colour Juice lipstick in Mango Tango (not shown in the group photo- I forgot to include it, oops!). This is one of my long term favorite lipstick colors. It’s semi-sheer but with a nice shine and it feels light on the lips. Plus the fruity scent is nice too.
Mango Tango is a nude with rosy brown undertones. Similar to Bobbi Brown’s new (and limited edition) Rosy Brown (from the Bobbi Brights collection). You can find it at most drugstores or drugstore.comL'oreal Mango Tango lipstick for $9.50.
