Glow in the Dark with Make Up For Ever!

I happened to be on (yea I'm a gossip blog addict) when I read his post on Make Up For Ever's new Fluo Night Powder.  I immediately went to their website to find out more.  Fluo Night is an extra fine fluorescent powder that glows under UV light.  How does it work?  The pigments are fixed to a polymer which combined with Make Up For Ever's patented technology (whatever that is LOL), produces a fluorescence and intense reaction to UV light.  The pots are extremely pigmented so make sure to blend well with a brush or sponge when applying.  Fluo Night is limited edition so with Halloween right around the corner I'm sure it will sell out fast.  I am so excited and can't wait to try this out.

Can be used with any other makeup (lipstick, eyeliner, etc.) and placed anywhere on the face and body.  Can you imagine mixing it with your foundation? *screams*

8 shades including an unique and universal “invisible” white (left to right):
  • Translucent White
  • Blue
  • Green
  • Yellow
  • Fuchsia
  • Purple
  • Coral
  • Orange
What do you guys think?  I can't wait to try this out in the club.  Available from Sephora for $31.

Beauty Blogger Spotlight

I thought I would spotlight a few sites that I read on the daily.  These ladies have some of the most creative eye looks I have ever seen.  I watch and read their tutorials all the time.  Their bold and colorful makeup looks inspire me to create not just a pretty face, but art!  Kudos ladies!




What sites do you read that inspire you?
