How Mother Nature decodes every skin tone.

It is a fact that some hues complement your features better than others.  A refined makeup palette can enliven your eye color, refine bone structure and reinvent your all-around beauty. 

Leatrice Eiseman, the director of the Pantone Color Institute, consults with industry leaders in fashion, design, and marketing to choose colors that will best enhance their brands.   Lucky for us her expertise also extends to individuals.  Eiseman's "color-time" system uses mother nature to decode flattering palettes for every skin type.  “The best way to judge your coloring is to think in terms of how color appears in nature at various times of the day,” says Eiseman, author of the palette-pleasing color guide More Alive With Color. 

She divides skin tones into three categories: sunrise, sunset, and sunlight.  The color range reflected off the sun at different times of the day dictate which hues are most flattering for each skin tone.  That, in turn, informs your wardrobe and makeup choices. 


Say YES! to Blueberries Eye Firming Treatment

First off, I love the vessel.  Even though the .5oz siphon pump delivers too much product, you will be able to use every single drop of this cream. Provided that you control the pump, you will have zero wasted product = excellent return on investment.  The cap locks tight and you can easily toss it in an overnight bag for travel.  Plus the vessel is recyclable.

Night time: I let my eye area get a little dry after I washed my face so I could get a true feel for this product.  The first thing that I noticed was how cooling it felt.  I usually use All About Eyes from Clinique and this was a different feel.  It's more like a lotion than the cream/gel formula I am used to using.  This product seemed a little more 'wet' to me but very comfortable.
 
Within 30 seconds I could feel the tightness around my eyes disappear and my skin feels very comfortable.  About 10 minutes later I can feel a little tackiness, which could be too much product, on my part.  My eye area looks moist and has a slight sheen around it.  The fine lines are gone so I image this will be a real nice base to smooth on under-eye concealers - a great blending agent.


Morning: I used a little less product and noticed I didn't have that tacky feeling, the lotion sank right in.  This is a thin cream, so if you're not disciplined to 'pat' your eyecreams on to the orbital area, instead you rub them in, this is a good product for you.  I have oily eyelids and usually find eyecreams warm up and work their way into my eyes but not this.  I have been using it for a week, 2 times a day and have started to love it.  

I rate it 4.5 stars out of 5.  It lost the 1/2 star because the pump needs to be calibrated to deliver less product.  Retails for $19.99 and can be found at YesToCarrots Target & CVS.
