{Test This} Mirenesse Mascara & Dynamic Defense Powder

2014 August 20

Test this dazzling makeup duo!

Mirenesse Cosmetics is giving away 25 fabulous sets of concealing powder and 24-hour mascara.

DD Velvet Skin Line Minimizing Powder SPF25 ($62) is a concealing powder with a creamy, whipped consistency. The powder, in a universal shade, reportedly corrects redness and discolorations plus moisturizes and brightens to help provide a “flawless, velvet textured skin,” the manufacturer says. The formula provides SPF25 sun protection!

The Secret Weapon Supreme 24Hr Mascara ($45) “instantly creates super long full lashes,” according to the manufacturer. The water-based formula includes organic waxes for a glossy and light look. The brush is tapered on one end to reach the smallest lashes, and rounded on the wider end to easily create full lashes. This 24-hour mascara is “water resistant, smear proof, sweat proof, sleep proof and flake-free. It stretches your eyelashes to give you maximum length!”

{Tested} City Cosmetics Intensive Night Repair

2014 August 19

Earlier this summer, we asked you why you wanted to try City Cosmetics Intensive Night Repair ($82 for 15mL). The bedtime serum promises to “penetrate deep into your skin to achieve a flawless, youthful complexion.”

Did the bedtime beauty blend stand up to the test? Here’s what YOU had to say!

While a few women didn’t find the serum to have any visible effects, like Dorinda H. of West Chester, PA, who says, “I did not feel this lotion had any positive effect on my complexion.” However, the bulk of our testers thought it was worthwhile product, such as Sharron L. of North Richland Hills, TX, who says “I LOVE that it is in a pump bottle!… I would buy and buy and keep it on hand.”

{Test This} ‘Delicious’ Sugar Scrubs from Two Good Scents

2014 July 29

Sisters Paula and Nancy Goodman have always enjoyed luxuriating in the bath or shower, with the help of divine products that make their skin feel and look soft and radiant. Especially partial to sugar scrubs, they thought many of the products on the market were too oily, too expensive or too harsh. So they decided to create their own line of well-priced scrubs, Two Good Scents ($10 for an 8 oz. jar), with just the right amounts of sugar and shea or mango butter to exfoliate, soften and polish.

And oh! The seasonally changing scents are heavenly. Think citrusy and spicy Timber, intoxicating Blossom and yummy Coconut Cream Pie. After all, if we can’t eat the real stuff, one of the company’s “bakery” scents is the next best thing.

“I’ve loved using Lemon Cookie the last month,” says FOF’s Geri Brin. “The scent is subtle and the texture of the scrub makes me feel like it’s really working to remove the top layer of dead cells from my skin.”
