There are many great new releases in leaping bunny land, and today Examiner takes a closer look at 3 essentials that will have you giving your makeup, nail, and brush wardrobe a re-vamp.
The latest tools from Real Techniques include an interesting Triangle Concealer Brush, which is awesome for use with cream eye shadows and primers. Though it has a pointed edge, its 3D shape allows for precise application and blending around the eye contours, making Triangle Concealer a surprising but quick necessity for this crucial step. The most exciting newbie in not only the Real Techniques line, but in all new brush collections, is the fabulous Tapered Shadow. This soft, synthetic, and slightly smaller version of a MAC 217 is your one-stop-shop with eyeshadow. Since it has a petite belly, it’s good at packing pigment on the lid which is something that formerly, only your flat shader could do – and because it’s still a blending brush, you have the ability to blend to your heart’s content. It’s the brush shape and perfect density that makes Tapered Shadow worth every penny and perhaps even adding a few to your collection.
Butter London takes the concept of a tinted moisturizer and channels its convenience in the release of Sheer Wisdom Nail Tinted Moisturizer. Available in 6 shades, it provides just the right amount of nude coverage while providing the nail-nourishing benefits of Vitamin E, Keratin, and Tea Tree Oil. Another fabulous new treatment is Melt Away Cuticle Eliminator, a painless way to remove stubborn cuticles while conditioning the skin. With daily use, it actually keeps those annoying (and tempting) cuticles from forming.
Lastly, from proudly vegan INIKA is a set of some gorgeous mineral makeup that’s seriously high performance – and while the Beauty Essentials Kit isn’t a brand new debut, INIKA is a brand that seems to be lesser known on the webisphere, and for that deserves the spotlight. This boxed collection features a unique combination of products – there’s a white eyeliner for your waterline, warm loose bronzer, volumizing mascara, liquid highlighter, and nourishing lip balm. If you’ve ever found mineral makeup to break down and disappear after 2 hours of wear, grab yourself a Beauty Essentials Kit. Everything from the waterliner to bronzer applies with full pigment and lasts all day on the skin, with or without a base. INIKA’s inky black mascara plumps lashes for an intense false effect – but removes easily at night with makeup remover.
