After almost 2 years in the making, introducing the Elcie Cosmetics Complete Remedy Silque Concealers & Translucent Powders! This launched Tuesday September 18 @ 10am and has been a huge success since. Although alone, they are amazing products, together - they are magical! From the unique metal tip applicator on the concealer to the luxury acrylic packaging of the powder, we meet your luxury requirements to its standards.
Complete Remedy Silque Concealer
Our concealers come in 7 shades with a gradience from "light" to "dark" with simplified names to help you chose your shade. As you know, our line is divided into 4 categories: light, medium, tan & dark. Figure out which category you are in and then use the concealer that compliments that category. You may also use the in-between shades to go brighter for highlighting or darker for correcting. The metal tip on the applicator will help depuff your under-eyes and works as a great blending tool fitting right between your eyes and nose. With the added eye cream benefits of caffeine, hyaluronic acid and cranberry seed oil, your under-eyes are left smooth, hydrated, de-puffed and also diminishes the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles.
User tip: Add the smallest amount and place a little stripe or dot underneath your eyes and use the metal tip to blend all the way around. $28
The translucent loose powder comes in two shades: Light/Medium & Tan/Dark. Each shade customized to universally fit a wide range of skin tones. While the powder sets in your makeup for an all days wear, it softens and blurs your fine lines & powders, leaving you with the smoothest looking skin. The powder itself is not dry and will not leave your skin cakey, but more like velvet.
User Tip: Use a fluffy brush to set your face, or a sponge to help "bake" the powder. $29
I hope you guys love these products as much as I enjoyed creating them. Concealer was one of the hardest things Ive had to create, next to my foundations, as concealers are a very sensitive subject for a sensitive area: the under-eyes! But with one use, you will see how it is nothing like you've ever used before.
As always, thank you guys so much for the love and support. I wouldn't be able to do what I love & expand the brand the way I have, if it wasn't for you guys. In the meantime, please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts!
Who would've thunk it? Well, I guess I did! Haha. We were in Hawaii for 5 days. We put on sunblock every single day (40 for the face, 50 for the body), none of us burned for the first 4 days. Then comes Day 5 and the sun was not playing games anymore. ALL 4 of us burned (along with Kat, the tiniest bit on her shoulders)! Either her sunscreen was stronger/better than mine or I just kept showering her in it. I layed down to tan for maybe about an hour, front and back. As I was laying there, I jumped up and remembered I didn't sunblock my ears! I mean...Ive had sunburn issues before, so I know; but I also knew it was too late. My face got a nice color, my ears? FRIED. In any case, because we kept going in and out of the water, all of our bodies burned, like, really bad. We went back home and realized out of all the sunblocks I bought, we didn't have any after sunburn lotions. What I DID bring was Kat's butt paste for diaper rashes. If it calms and heals the redness/irritation & burn from her butt, why couldn't it do the same to our bodies?
This SAVED us! I noticed Desitin had 13% Zinc Oxide which helps with inflammation and helps heal quicker. Although thick and sticky, we put that cream all over our bodies. It does burn for a few minutes (poor babies) but then really calms down your burn/pain! When I came home, I found Kat's Burt's Bees Diaper Rash Creamand noticed that one had 40% Zinc Oxide! I am sure there are many products out there that are specifically made for after-sun burns and I am in no way a scientist or chemist, but this was a sunburn GEM. Also, I read that people have used it on their acne. What are your thoughts?
The caption is exactly what I thought when I got this package from Becca. To be honest, I love every single shade they have. Opal has been my JAM forever, and when I am lighter, Moonstone & when tanner, Champagne Pop. I believe they have 5 or more other shades. So here I am thinking, what other color can you actually create that are good enough as the others? Introducting, Parisian Lights in collaboration with Sananas (@sananas2016). Can I just tell you that I have never seen a highlighter shade like this? The second I swatched, I was in awe! How did Becca kill it once again? The best way I can describe this shade is a soft pink highlighter with gold flecks. This highlighter has dimension and that is one of my favorite qualities about it, in addition to their already perfect formula. So then I actually applied it and it is safe to say, it is probably my new favorite highlighter. I have a little bit of a tan now (medium toned) and it just looks like my skin is glistening and the hue is perfect. To be honest, I didn't know who Sananas was until I searched for her; but I learned she is French (obviously) and the Eiffel tower print with the glistening stars is just way too cute - I didn't want to touch it! I still have the Champagne pop with the actual champagne bottle on it at home and haven't touched that one. I think I need to get another one I can shrine in my collectibles :)
Spring is almost here & so are the pastels! Before we get into the bright bold beautiful Summer colors - enjoy the feminine vibe of the season. Blush, almost always, looks good on any skin tone. You just have to find the "right" blush for you. If you are in the lighter category, go for a nude blush - its going to look pink on you! If you are in the darker category, go for a deeper pink so that it stands out on our lips and looks like your natural blushing lip color.
My skincare routine changes occasionally; depending on the season, what my skin needs & of course, new products I am sent. But throughout this process, I find my absolute must-haves that I feel are either very impactful or a constant in my routine, regardless of any of the above! Also, keep in mind we all have different skin types, different age groups and different preferences. I highly suggest looking into my recommendations to make sure that it is right for you! I explain it all in the video below - but also have all the products I use in the caption of this video along with links & descriptions. It took me a long time to find the links to each product so I hope its helpful, haha! Let me know your thoughts and YOUR absolute must-haves. I am always looking for the next best thing!
