Darac TourQuam 3-D Face Sculpting Brush, Nothing Compares 2 U

After using Darac’s TourQuam 3-D Face Sculpting Brush, I have one thing to say to all of the other makeup brushes on the market: you should be ashamed of yourselves.

For applying powder products, nothing compares to the TourQuam brush. Nothing.

This Jetsons-esque tool has a magnet hidden in the handle. Because all powders have an iron oxide, magnetic base, this brush attracts the perfect amount of product. Which means no wasting your precious powders. And no more tapping and blowing on the bristles to avoid looking like a character straight outta Kabuki theater. So not necessary.

Seriously…even you unintentionally heavy-handed makeup junkies will be amazed at how this brush keeps your ‘more is more’ tendencies in check.

Lately, I’ve been using this brush in tandem with my LORAC TANtalizer Baked Matte Satin Bronzer and Fresh Freshface Blush Powder – and I can honestly say that my golden glow and flushed cheeks have never looked more natural.

Darac TourQuam 3-D Face Sculpting Brush, nothing compares 2 u!

Shu Uemura Primitribe

Infused with the prevailing spirit engendered by its founder that “modes have a right to break rules,” the premier beauty brand, named for its creator Mr. Shu Uemura, introduces “primitribe” (primitive+tribe), its 129th mode make-up collection.

Trained directly under Mr. Shu Uemura, international artistic director Kakuyasu Uchiide, continues to challenge the notions of the expected, taking us on an exploration that goes beyond the traditional borders of “seasonal makeup.”

With his creation of primitribe, Uchiide leads us to a land filled with a unique product mixture that brims with adventurous and vibrant colors, rich textures and elaborately adorned packaging.

Twilight Beauty Product Photos

As previously reported, Twilight Beauty, a new cosmetics brand themed after the series of films, will launch two lines debuting this Fall: Luna Twilight and Volturi Twilight. The two lines will be available in conjunction with the release of the second film, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which arrives in theaters on November 20, 2009.

Luna Twilight reflects the mood and spirit of the saga’s iconic female characters, presenting a collection that creates a harmonious blend between soft, natural beauty and stunning, fierce splendor. Notable products from the Luna Twilight line include First Light Body and Face Glow for radiant illumination and Gleam Metallic Mascara for captivating lashes.

The crowning jewels of the Luna Twilight collection are found in the four Color Palettes ($28), designed to reflect the mood and spirit of the iconic female characters from the Twilight saga, bringing together a harmonious collection for lips, cheeks and eyes. Apply each lip and eye color separately or layer them both for a dimensional effect. Powder blush should be applied just behind the apples of the cheeks and blended along the cheekbone.

Bella: Soft and Subtle with nude shadows, warm nude blush, nude lipstick and the sheerest cherry red gloss

Alice: Eclectic and Spunky with shimmering blue and silver shadows, rosy blush and sheer hot pink lips

Rosalie: Regal and Refined with peach toned shadows, a coral blush and apricot lipsticks and gloss

Victoria: Bold and Fiery with shimmering jewel-toned shadows and deep wine colored lipstick and gloss

Volturi Twilight offers entry into Twilight’s exclusive coven through use of the Volturi family crest as the brand’s logo. The line features Foreshadow Primer, an ultra-sheer eye base that provides the ultimate prep for a smoother, crease-proof eye shadow application that is coupled with loose glitter dust, called Labrynth Shadows. The highly pigmented loose powder shadows and the lid primer are housed in stackable pots, providing the ability to mix and match the colors to create personal, one-of-a-kind eye shadow favorites. Other standouts include Deity Body Lotion, Immortal Body Shimmer and Crown Mascara.

Luna Twilight will be available September 15, 2009 at Dillard’s and Nordstrom. Volturi Twilight will be available September 15, 2009 through specialty retailers. Both lines will be sold at TwilightBeauty.com, the exclusive website for both lines.

Update: Twilight Venom lip plumper, a collaboration between DuWop and Twilight Beauty, is available NOW at Sephora.com!
