Product Round-Up — My Fave Beauty Things Week of August 18th!
It was so hot in Kansas City this week! I didn’t even want to go outside, but as a busy woman, I had errands to run. At least my makeup stayed put!
This week, I have been loving waterproof eye liners and mascara, a new powder foundation, a fresh body scrub, a cute new headband, and a rich body lotion.
Eyeko Visual Eyes Liquid Eyeliner
Eyeko Sport Mascara
Visual Eyes Liquid Eyeliner ($19 USD) — Tears are inevitable, but liner dripping down your face isn’t. Eyeko Visual Eyes is a waterproof liquid eyeliner that creates everything from a thin kitten eye to a sultry, sexy wing. Plus, you can play up your eye color with ebony, mocha and marine shades!
Sport Mascara ($$24 USD) — Who says dancing isn’t a sport? Eyeko’s newest mascara can withstand the test of time, tears and sweat with its triple coating gel formulation. Designed to prevent smudging, flaking, and running, this fiber based mascara is creates lashes that look long, plush and beautiful for up to 12 hours!
What I think: I am so impressed with both of these products! The liners work very well, and it’s easy to get a thick line and cat’s eye. I especially love the mocha and marine liners. They will be great for fall! The mascara is perfect for this hot weather, as it doesn’t run or smear after dry.
VMV Hypoallergenics Illuminants Brilliant Finish 25 Powder Foundation ($45 USD) — This brightening, protective powder-foundation for all skin types works as an SPF 25 physical barrier against skin-darkening light while masking subtle hyperpigmentations and other imperfections. Smooth, light, and pore-friendly. Provides both a silky-sheer powder finish (applied dry), or a rich, creamy texture and flawlessly-full coverage (applied with wet sponge).
What I think: Right now, I have been using this in Chantilly (fair) dry as a light foundation. It works great in the heat. When it gets cooler, I will probably use it wet for more coverage. It lasts all day and doesn’t stick in my pores. I also love the case that it comes in.

Laura Mercier Eau Fraiche Verbena Infusion Gel Body Scrub ($40 USD) — Refresh and revive with this invigorating gel cleanser that gently exfoliates while removing impurities without drying or stripping skin of its natural oils. A multi-vitamin complex soothes and nourishes skin while natural Coconut water drenches skin in moisture. Skin is left soft, smooth and rejuvenated.
What I think: This smells fantastic! So fresh! I also love the gel consistency of this. I have never tried a gel scrub and I like how gentle it is on my skin.
Mia Beauty Denim Bow Headband ($8 USD) — add a cute finishing touch to any hairstyle, from loose waves to a trendy topknot.
What I think: This bow is so cute! I love the dark denim look. It is great to keep my hair off of my face and will be perfect for fall outfits!
Available at online via www.miabeauty.com, CVS pharmacies, ULTA, Harmon/Bed Bath and Beyond and other retailers online and nationwide.
LaVanila Vanilla Grapefruit Body Butter ($19 USD) — Instant Hydration. This velvety smooth body butter absorbs instantly for deeply hydrated, luxuriously soft skin. 100% pure Shea & Cocoa Butters blend with powerful antioxidants and essential oils for long-lasting hydration.
What I think: I have been enjoying the Vanilla Grapefruit body butter. It has a crisp blend of sparkling grapefruit and the rich scent of vanilla softly scents skin. And it is so moisturizing!
