I was looking forward to trying a new look from Rae Cosmetics. Something fresh, and perhaps not as BOLD for summer.
Rae Cosmetics is a fresh and versatile cosmetics line ideal for everyday performance during exercise, travel or for those that simply lead a busy lifestyle (perfect for busy moms and marathon runners!). Rae has quickly become a favorite line amongst active women and athletes looking for performance as well as beauty from their cosmetics.
Rae is both animal and earth friendly. All of the ingredient suppliers, manufacturers and laboratories also support the Cruelty-Free Commitment and our use of minimal packaging supports the Clean World Commitment.
My staples are my black eyeliner and my black mascara. I was excited that Rae sent mei their Lush Silk Mascara in Onyx (HERE) - Retails for $17
The silk powder and protein-rich formula builds strong flexible threads for long lush lashes. The water-binding properties in silk make it water-resistant, smudge-resistant and fast drying but more gentle than water-proof. Infused with chamomile, juniper and protective anti-oxidants vitamins A, C and E. The hollow-fiber brush lifts and separates each lash, no clumping for a long and natural look.
The mascara didn't smudge when I worked out or when I blinked. My lashes are long and with some brands, my mascara tends to rub off below my eyes or upper lids. It did not with Rae. I liked the color of the Onyx (I prefer DARK). I really liked the brush and the application of it. It just didn't seem to get is think on my lashes as I would like. I prefer a "faux lash" look. It was a nice, less-dramatic option for me.
I also LOVE lipgloss (and so does Little Diva). The Lucky Lips Lip Gloss in Rowdy (HERE) was a perfect color for summer. Retails for $18. I
Their lip glosses are available in ten hot and trendy colors. The Rowdy color looked a lot more pink online. It looked more red in the package. When applied, it looked even lighter. It gave me some nice color for summer, but wasn't overly dramatic for day wear or out on a run. I also liked the shine, and it didn't make my lips overly sparkly like some others I've tried (that are more marketed towards teenagers).
Non-sticky, super high-shine lipgloss. An ultra-brilliant formula, enriched with antioxidant vitamins A, C and E, delivers the ultimate transparent glisten, with just a splash of color.
