Physicians Formula Argan Wear blush
Physicians Formula just launched its Argan Wear Ultra-Nourishing Makeup collection, a blush, bronzer, and BB cream infused with, you guessed it, argan oil. The Argan Wear line also includes an illuminating argan oil, for those of you who like a little shimmer, and 100 percent pure argan oil, for your other beauty needs.
The company claims Argan Wear is the first mass market collection to contain argan oil, which is produced from a tree native to the North African country of Morocco. I thought my recent Florida vacation would be a great opportunity to try it out.*
Physicians Formula is known for its bronzers and blushes, and these did not disappoint! They went on smoothly and stayed in place, even in Florida’s heat and humidity. They also smell amazing! I love how the blush has a brighter color in the center of the compact, for a pop of color on the apples of your cheeks. The BB cream absorbed quickly, and flawlessly evened out my skin tone.
My only complaint is that the flecks of gold glitter on the surface of the compacts disappeared after a few uses. I am also just not a big fan of glitter.
Argan oil has definitely been gaining popularity in the beauty and skin care space. Its also great for your hair. Have you ever tried it?
* Products were sent to me for review, but opinions are my own.
It’s Easter/Passover weekend, and one color that reminds me of Easter is purple: purple marshmallow Peeps, purple Easter eggs, and purple packaging on Easter candy. You get the idea. So I got out this Bobbi Brown palette and purple Lancome kohl eyeliner.
The palette is from the Lilac Rose collection that Bobbi Brown came out with a few years ago. It has enough shades of eye shadow to be flattering for everyone, and the colors are very soft. The collection was limited edition, but Tarte’s new Rainforest After Dark Eye and Cheek Palette looks close enough to me. You can also try the Monochrome or Exposure palette from Hourglass.
If you aren’t sure about the look, or just don’t want to spend too much, check out Revlon’s ColorStay 16-Hour Eye Shadow in Seductive or PhotoReady Primer, Shadow, and Sparkle in Watercolors.
The eyeliner is Lancome’s Le Crayon Kohl in Purple Dusk. I do not think this is the most flattering color on me, to be honest. Don’t get me wrong. I love Lancome kohl pencils, and have a few. They go on very smoothly and wear well. But I am fair and have blue-gray eyes, so I tend to wear blue, brown, and gray eyeliners. I think Purple Dusk is better for brown- or green-eyed girls, and olive skin tones.
If you want to try purple, Physicians Formula has Kajal eyeliner trios for green and brown eyes, and there is a purple shade in each.
Hoppy Holiday Weekend, everyone! It’s officially a three-day weekend here Chez Fabulous Forever. Do you have any special plans?
And BTW, thanks for the love for my Artis Makeup Brushes post. Glad you liked it!
