Recessionista’s Fabuless Pick of the Week: Victoria’s Secret Flawless Glow Face Bronzer

victoria%27s+secret+flawless+glow+face+bronzer Recessionistas Fabuless Pick of the Week: Victorias Secret Flawless Glow Face Bronzer
My sister’s BFF turned me onto Victoria’s Secret Flawless Glow Face Bronzer, from the Bare Bronze Collection. This velvety duo-bronzer has two finishes. Use the satin matte shade to contour, the pearly powder to highlight; and blend the two shades together for a shimmering bronze glow.

lindsay dirty face Recessionistas Fabuless Pick of the Week: Victorias Secret Flawless Glow Face BronzerThe shimmery half of the duo leaves you looking sunkissed, rather than muddy – a la Lindsay “Dirty Face” Lohan.

Here’s another tip passed along from Lauren’s friend: apply the shimmery shade, in a stripe, down the middle of the nose – then continue the line from the bottom of the nose to the cupid’s bow. And ta-da – instant hotness.

Flawless Glow Face Bronzer is available in three shades: light (glow 1), light/medium (glow 2), and medium (glow 3). I’ve got a Halle Berry-esque complexion and I wear the light/medium, just to give you an idea.

On the website, Flawless Glow Face Bronzer will set you back $17.50. But my sister and I snagged ours in the Victoria’s Secret store, where they’re selling these babies for $4.37! There’s also this adorable kabuki brush (super soft brown bristles with hot pink tips) that’s on sale for $4.87.

I finally cashed in the gift card I got last September at Fashion Week – and bought the Flawless Glow Face Bronzer and the Very Sexy Demi Push-Up Bra with Gel-Curve (very sexy, indeed).

Kim Kardashian Names Smashbox Best Bronzer

kim+kardashian Kim Kardashian Names Smashbox Best Bronzer
On her blog, Kim dishes on her favorite bronzer. The key? It gives her serious glow, without looking greasy…

smashbox+bronzer Kim Kardashian Names Smashbox Best BronzerI love this bronzer and use it all over my face and my cheekbones to give me definition but also color. It’s by Smashbox and it’s called Bronze Lights. I get it in the Suntan Matte shade. I think it’s important to have a great matte bronzer that doesn’t have shimmer in it because sometimes shimmer can make you look oily. I use a smaller brush to contour my cheekbones and then use a bigger powder brush to give me a little color on my forehead and nose.

NARS Duo Concealer
Since the skin on your face is not created equal, one shade of concealer usually won’t suffice.
This new palette features two complementary shades that can be blended together or used individually. Creamy and completely crease-resistant, the Duo Concealer is lightweight but still able to provide smooth, opaque coverage to eradicate skin redness, imperfections, and under-eye shadows.
Vanilla/Honey – Fair complexions
Custard/Ginger- Light to medium complexions
Praline/Toffee – Medium to dark complexions

New…NARS Multiple Bronzer!!!

 New...NARS Multiple Bronzer!!!

Shut the front door! NARS, you are too good to me…

This was my thought upon learning that the iconic Multiple is now available as a bronzer. Like the original Multiple, this oil free, cream-to-powder bronzing stick can be used to contour and add warmth to the eyes, lips, cheeks or body. Plus the new anti-oxidant rich formula strengthens, supports and repairs skin.

Available in three shades: Tuomota (for light to medium complexions w/ golden yellow undertones), Malaysia (for medium to dark complexions with red undertones – great for tanned skin) and Rapa Nui (for dark complexions with red undertones).

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to get my mitts on the Multiple Bronzer. Malaysia, here I come!
