FACE TIME COSMETICS HOLIDAY 2007 BEAUTY IN A BOX

YOUR SWEETHEART IS ONE-OF-A-KIND. THIS HOLIDAY SEASON, HER GIFT SHOULD BE TOO. GIVE HER A CUSTOM  BEAUTY IN A BOX FROM FACE TIME COSMETICS.

Face Time Cosmetics is founded by makeup artist Linsey Snyder, and for the holiday season, they have developed “Beauty In a Box,” which is a product specifically designed for the gift recipient. Linsey and her team of experts work with the customer using photos, hair color, skin tone, and personal tastes to create the ultimate customized beauty box. They even provide a “Face Card” with detailed instructions for application! It takes less than a week to have it customized and shipped to you! The custom beauty in a box is $150, but if you want to go another route, check out already selected items in Romantic, Stunning, and Sultry ($90).

I recently had the pleasure of trying four of Face Time’s Well-to-Hue eyeshadows in Camilla’s Class (muted purple with subtle silver shimmer), Jamie’s Gem (rich medium-green with gold shimmer), Lauren’s Loyalty (white beige with gold undertones), and Virginia’s Vitality (matte medium pink). All of Face Time’s eyeshadows have been named after women who have influenced the company along with their “most valuable attributes.” Each shadow gave me great color pay off, felt like butter, and I liked that they come in a variety of shades to serve every woman’s needs. Of course, I fell in love with the green (who doesn’t love a green with a touch of gold in it?), and I tend to gravitate towards any white-gold colors, like Lauren’s Loyalty. At $12 a pop, they are hard to resist! Head over to www.facetimecosmetics.com to see the other shadows or make a purchase.

Check out a photo of the shadows I tried!

ZOYA UTOPIA WINTER 2007 | AKYRA

Zoya’s Akyra (from Utopia | Winter 2007/08) is a gorgeous muted teal color. I kind of wish for a brighter, bolder teal, but I think this one is excellent because it’s very wearable. It also looks great with both cool and warm skintones from what I’ve found, which is a definite plus. It has great opacity, and you can get great color with two coats of polish! $6

This color, as well as the rest of Utopia, is available at fine salons and www.zoya.com.

I used Uppity fluidline all over lid, Creme Royale eyeshadow on inner lid, Goldmine eyeshadow on inner lid, Mi’Lady (red) eyeshadow on middle of lid, Manor eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Velvet Lady eyeshadow in outer crease, Ricepaper eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Goldmine eyeshadow on lower lash line, and Black Karat kohl power on lower lash line. I wore Margin blush on cheeks with Sculpt sculpting powder to contour and Peach Haze beauty powder to highlight. I had Thrills lipstick with Poetique lipglass on my lips.

ZOYA UTOPIA WINTER 2007 | IRENE

Zoya’s Irene (from Utopia | Winter 2007/08) is a gorgeous gold-yellow-geren.  It reminds me a bit of a more green Old Gold pigment by MAC, only in nail polish form. I love how opaque the color is after just two coats!  It has the loveliest gold shimmer, and I never thought I’d be willing to wear a green polish before I put on Irene. $6

This color, as well as the rest of Utopia, is available at fine salons and www.zoya.com.

What is your favorite red lipstick? Who makes it? What is it called? Tell us why it’s your favorite!

I love Red No. 5 by MAC, which came out awhile ago; it’s a raspberry red, and it’s dark enough so it isn’t fire-engine red, but it’s still bold for the right occasion.
