L’Occitane Get on Board for Sight Soaps


L’Occitane Get on Board for Sight Soaps

Here’s a great cause with an affordable price tag but more importantly? 100% of proceeds will be donated.

Did you know that over 280 million people in the world are visually impaired? And yet 80% of blindness is preventable.  Launching October 12th, 100% of the proceeds from sales of the Get on Board for Sight Limited Edition Soaps ($6 each) will support ORBIS, an NGO committed to ending preventable blindness.

Inspired by the ORBIS plane, also known as the Flying Hospital, these limited-edition charitable soaps from L’OCCITANE are crafted in the shape of a plane wearing glasses. Enriched with nourishing shea butter, they leave hands soft and delicately perfumed. Available in Pink (floral and fruity) and Blue (verbena), 100% of the proceeds from sales will allow ORBIS to launch a large-scale project in Burkina Faso, Africa. This country is very special to L’OCCITANE as the company has been working with women’s cooperatives to source Shea Butter since the 1980s.

availability: October 12th, 2011

Make Up For Ever #940 Star Powder

Make Up For Ever #940 Star Powder ($19.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a loose powder that shifts color at different angles and lighting situations. It moves from a cooler-toned beige-white to a coppery pink shimmer-sheen. It seems like it is similar to MAC’s Vanilla pigment but perhaps with a less pronounced sheen–more yellow in it than copper.

This is actually the shade that Nick Lujan patted onto the center of the lid in this look. The texture is very, very finely milled; it practically melts against the skin because of how silky smooth it is. #940 is particularly useful for layering over other eyeshadows to add more dimension to the shade, though it can be used alone just as easily.  It can be applied dry or damp, and the metallic sheen will be more pronounced if it applied damp.

Look: Warm Green & Brown

Look:  Warm Green & Brown

This was the second look I tried to test drive MAC’s new long-wearing eyeshadows! 🙂  I don’t know if I’ve paired green (without being brownish or olive) with browns – it’s a very earthy combo!  Hope you’re having a fabulous day!

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by laying down your eyeshadow primer all over the lid and until the brow.  Apply Fresh Flare eyeshadow on the lower two-thirds of the lid with the 239.  In the crease, gently brush Keep Your Cool eyeshadow with the 222 and diffuse above the crease.  Apply Lie Low eyeshadow in the crease to add warmth with the 239.  Use Lucky eyeliner on the lower lash lin, then soften with Lie Low eyeshadow.  Finish lashes with Film Noir mascara.

For face, apply Matchmaster all over face with the 193.  Add color to the cheeks by gently dusting Natural blush near apples and blended out towards temples with the 116.  Lightly dust on illuminator with the 165 or 188 on cheek bones.  Set with Les Violettes with the 134.

For lips, apply To the Future onto lips and then layer over Show Me.
