Jane Iredale Does Emollient Matte Red, NYX Does Great Foundation Powder on the Cheap

Jane Iredale Red

Right about now I have a good collection of red lipsticks, and I love them all I can’t decide which one is the best. However, the folks at Jane Iredale sent me a gorgeous red lippie that goes on so smooth with a semi-matte finish without drying out my lips, so I had to share. I’m wearing Puremoist lipstick in “Margi” a true red. Besides how smooth it goes on and how rich the pigment is, it has an added bonus of a pleasant citrus smell and essential oils that are good for the skin.

The Details:

The proven soothing properties of Moringa Oil saturate the lips with Vitamins A & C, while Coffee Seed Extract infuses with even more antioxidant protection. Orange Peel Wax, plus ultra moisturizing Avocado and Sunflower Seed Oils, protect the delicate lip area and give a luxurious, conditioned and quenched feeling to the lips. The organic Pomegranate and Blackberry Fruit Extracts are unique, luscious flavors that stimulate the senses.


The color also lasts long, but don’t be surprised if you reapply simply because you love how good it feels going on! (Retails $25)


I’m also really liking a powder foundation that I discovered at the Los Angeles Makeup Show made by NYX. It’s a two-toned powder foundation and get this–it’s only $12!!!! Even at that reasonable price, the DEFINE AND REFINE powder foundation gives great coverage while still feeling light on the skin. Perfect for the hot and humid summer ahead.



I of course have this product in DEEP. You can either run a powder brush across both shades, or use the differing shades to add dimension and contours. In the photo below, it’s all the foundation I have on…

Blends nice, doesn’t it?
