When I named Bionic Beauty, I never imagined there would be actual “bionic” makeup! Women have applied makeup in a similar fashion for hundreds of years using brushes, fingers, sponges, cotton, and natural fibers. Since 1930 women have had the option of permanent makeup – a tattoo that is applied to your face, eyes, or lips – but the process never grabbed mainstream attention until the 1980s. The drawback of tattoo makeup is the lack of changeability.
Makeup needs a game-changer! Turns out, it is here. Now.
Blue Sun Research Group has developed Pax Cosmetic Implants. My best friend and research director at Blue Sun Research Group, Dr. Kate Jones, sent me an overview of their new permanent makeup cosmetic implants.
Pax implants are placed under the facial dermis during a quick, outpatient procedure and allow a woman to alter makeup colors on her cheeks, eyelids, and lips through a wireless interface. Basically you can change your makeup look from smokey eye with a nude lip to old Hollywood glamor in just a few minutes!
Pax, short for G-23 Paxilon Hydrochlorate, uses micro-dermal transduction of bio-luminescent liquid crystals to produce color visible on the skin’s surface. Currently there are 147 doctors in the United States authorized to perform Pax Cosmetic Implants; but the amount of doctors performing the procedure should be widespread by late October 2013.
To top it all off, this summer you’ll be able to change color on-the-go, with the Pax smart phone apps!
Will you be visiting your doctor to get the new Pax Cosmetic Implants? And how often do you think you’d change your makeup through the day?
And after this leap forward, what’s next in the world of makeup?
Stay bionic y’all,
Pax Cosmetic Implant side effects can include: redness, itching, swelling and discomfort at the implantation site(s); permanent or random color changes of the skin; personality changes such as aggression, akathesia, and insomnia; abnormal growth of the first bicuspids; excessive hunger; swelling of the pituitary gland, adrenal gland, and ears; and restless leg syndrome (RLS).
There are a myriad of mineral makeup brands out there, and you all know I have a few favorites. I’m here to introduce you to another brand: Fusion of Color Cosmetics.
Eyes: Straw (matte shadow all across lid and up into the crease); To Cool (shimmery forest green shadow on outer third of eyelid); In Vogue (white shimmer shadow used a brow bone highlight).
I’ve used Straw here as a base for my other colors. It would also make an excellent concealer, primer or matte brow bone accent! And my photographs of To Cool (the green) really don’t do it justice. It’s such a pretty shamrock color!
Fusion of Color’s eyeshadows start at $4.50 for a 1gram jar which will give you months and months of color!
Lips: Twitter Butter Lipstick
Three Custom Color’s new cream blush in Morning After is a bright, poppy pink with no shimmer. Typical of Three Custom, this blush is perfect for just about any skin tone. While it looks super bright in the compact, it applies sheer and the color can be layered on for gals with a deeper skintone.
Since my skin is fair, I just apply a small fingertip dab on each cheek and then blend it out. The result is a flush as if I just went jogging!
I hope everyone had a wonderful, spookie-filled Halloween last night! Please be sure to post a link to your costume pictures, or feel free to email them to me and I’ll feature them in an article!
