Finally, a true tinted moisturizer...FOR REAL!!!!

I just can't say enough about this product!! First it is something that can work with all your existing products, it can be a true tinted moisturizer, and it was just named the most "Innovative Makeup Launch" by Refinery29's Beauty Innovator Awards. What is this magical product you is Custom Cover Drops by CoverFX!!

This product is so unique and can do so much. The idea behind it is that is is basically pure pigment. So what that means is you can drop a couple drops into your favorite product and you have your very own custom foundation. Now you may not think that is very innovative but let me give you the 411 on this. Let's say you love your current foundation but wish that it had a bit more coverage. All you have to do is put a couple drops of the Custom Cover Drops into it and now have a fuller coverage foundation.

I also mentioned you can have a TRUE tinted moisturizer. When you buy a tinted moisturizer, it should never take the place of your regular moisturizer. It is nothing more than word play. What those items are, are a more sheer foundation with a bit more emollience added. But now with these babies you can really have a tinted moisturizer!! Just drop one or two drops in your favorite moisturizer and have your own customized tint.

Something else that makes this so amazing is it is good for any skin type. No worries if you are like an oil slick or dry as a bone. Everyone can use these. And, you can mix it into just about anything; moisturizers, serums, primers, foundations, oil based products, water based products, silicone based name it!! Cover FX recommends one drop for sheer coverage, two drops for medium coverage, three drops for full coverage and four drops for total coverage. Two words of caution with this. First, SHAKE IT WELL! Because of the technology used in the delivery system of the pigment, you need to give it a good shake to make sure you are getting the pigment and not just the delivery system. Second, do not mix this with a pure physical sunscreen (titanium dioxide or zinc oxide). If you do it will just look very ghost like. That is not to say your product can't contain a bit of those ingredients, you just don't want to mix it with solely that type of ingredient.

As of now the drops come in 24 shades and are priced at $44. You can order them from the Cover FX website or stop in at Sephora to pick them up. If you do go to Sephora, get match by having them place a couple drops in a moisturizer and then blending it at your jaw line. Then PLEASE step outside and take a look. There is nothing like natural light to make sure you have the right color!!

It is a whole new world out there. I love this product and will be stocking it in my kit. If you have ever wanted something simple and fool can have it!!

I always love doing wedding for people I have worked with before. There is a real feeling of camaraderie and it gives me a chance to catch up with what has been going on. Brittany is a bride that I met as a bridesmaid a while back. I then had the privilege to get to to work with her on her wedding and will be working with her yet again at another upcoming wedding!!

This group of ladies is just amazing. They have welcomed me into their circle and I feel like I am now one of their friends. As a matter of fact they are booking a class with me and then we are all going out on the town to show off their skills.

I hope you enjoy these pics of Brittany and all the ladies. The wedding took place at The Winterham Plantation and our good friends at 1213 Hair Studio did all the amazing hair styles. We also want to give a big thank you to Zoe at Andi and Zoe Photography for these beautiful photos!!

Hey friends! So as promised, albeit very late with the follow up, a review of Urban Decay Mascara Resurrection. Bottom line - love it! There are so many situations where touching up your makeup is "foiled" because unless you wash your face - touching up your mascara can make your lashes spidery in appearance. This products allows you to re-swipe several coats of your mascara and BAM you are ready to roll for your evening festivities! Let us know - have you tried it?
