Mai Couture is on HauteLook for the next few days and I must say I adore their products.  My favorite is the St. Bart’s highlighting papier.  I tear the sheets in half because I find one half is more than enough for one application on both cheeks.

About the event:

Why carry your entire beauty arsenal when you can effortlessly take these compact makeup sheets and cosmetics on the go? Mai Couture simplifies life by creating the most convenient, travel-ready cosmetics collection. From 2-in-1 blotters for removing excess oil and adding color, to high-shine lip glosses for the perfect pout, these beauty tools help you lighten up your load and live for today.

I am a big fan of the new Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation.  Thankful I was able to receive it from Influenster to try before it hits stores.

I find this product is best applied with your finger tips.

Pros:
- Long lasting
- Smooth matte finish
- A little product goes a long way
- Good coverage
- Sits very light on the skin like you’re not wearing anything
- 8 shades to choose from to match your skin tone.

Thank you influenster and Rimmel!

Product Shout Out - Benefit Cosmetics Some kind-a gorgeous foundation!

What they say - Our oil-free, cream-to-powder formula is silky, even perfection for your complexion! This foundation faker will even out your skintone with lightweight, sheer coverage, making it look chart-topping gorgeous! Compact includes application sponge and mirror for touch-ups on the go!

My Review-  I love this product so much.  I got a sample of it in my Primping with the Stars set from Sephora.  At first I was applying it with a brush and found it to be a little streaky so I switched to a wet beauty blender sponge and my skin looked amazing!  I like extremely matte skin so I set my foundation with another powder and I was ready to go.  The foundation last all day and I never got shiny come the end of the day.  The only thing I had put on my skin prior to the foundation was my Embryolisse moisturizer.
