CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Lit Cosmetics Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Friday, May 27th, 2011

These glit­ter cos­met­ics are truly amaz­ing. I would rec­c­om­mend them to any­one! I have owned other big brand name Glitter’s and none of them even come close com­pared to Lit cos­met­ics glit­ter. First of all the glit­ter is VERY pig­mented, and they are very true to colour. This is what I seen in the pack­age that I received. I was very excited!!

The Amaz­ing thing about the Lit cos­met­ics Glit­ter Base is that it really does NOT allow the glit­ter to crease on your eyes. And It can also be used as a base for eye­shad­ows which is what I tried for a day and your eye­shadow lasts all day and night (until you take it off of course.) It enhances the colours of the eye­shad­ows, and I have also used it under my blush and it works with that as well! This is amaz­ing! I love this stuff!! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this to any­one who loves glit­ter and wants it to last all day long!

Lit cos­met­ics insists that with No Glit­ter there is No Glory!!  Start your LIT expe­ri­ence off with one of their great kits that include every­thing you need to add some glitz your look right up!  These nat­ural, water-based prod­ucts are alco­hol, paraben and Propy­lene Gly­col free.  LIT Cos­met­ics are hypoal­ler­genic and ideal for sen­si­tive skin. This fun, excit­ing prod­uct is easy to use and suit­able for every­one.  Bring some sparkle to any party with LIT Cos­met­ics or put them on your giv­ing list for some­one spe­cial and deserving!

Lit Cos­met­ics glit­ter is amaz­ing because unlike other glit­ter bases this one is com­pletely organic, and when it’s on you don’t even feel the glit­ter is there. No sticky, itchy, fly every­where mess. Best of all the patented water-based glit­ter base will last you for years. It’s a bang for your buck and a real defi­nate “must have.” They have the best cos­met­ics out there by far! Also note: ship­ping is just $10 any­where in the world!

Who Should Wear Lit Cos­met­ics
Our “tar­get mar­ket” is vir­tu­ally every­one. Lit prod­ucts are prac­ti­cal for all ages, both sexes and every skin tone. Our prod­ucts are worn by every gen­er­a­tion: daugh­ters, moth­ers, and grand­moth­ers all wear Lit! You will fall in love after the first appli­ca­tion and really what it comes down to is: “girls just wanna have fun!”

Along with every­day wear, Lit Cos­met­ics is per­fect for:

•Fig­ure skaters
•Dancers
•The­atre per­form­ers
•Cir­cus per­form­ers
•Cheer­lead­ers
•Face paint­ing
•Cos­tume par­ties
•Hol­i­days
•And much more!

HISTORY
The Birth of Lit Cos­met­ics
The idea for Lit has roots back in 2001 when Jodie Perks, the owner/inventor of Lit Cos­met­ics, was sling­ing drinks in the night clubs around Cal­gary. Hav­ing always been a fan of fun makeup and a lit­tle “bling, bling”, Jodie felt the need to be a lit­tle dif­fer­ent from the rest of the girly girls serv­ing up drinks. That’s when she hit on the idea of glit­ter eye makeup!

The basic con­cept was sim­ple; sparkles give a look of opti­mum colour inten­sity and light reflec­tion at all times of the day and into the night. Jodie had finally hit on a cool makeup to match her flashy personality!

After look­ing into the prod­ucts on the mar­ket there was sur­pris­ingly no decent glit­ter eye shad­ows to be found, thus Jodie was forced to take mat­ters into her own hands and began exper­i­ment­ing. Long hours and months of test­ing in her “top secret” base­ment lab eval­u­at­ing the pros and cons of all other glit­ter prod­ucts she exposed a num­ber of flaws, the most obvi­ous being the appli­ca­tion process and the adhe­sive. With time and deter­mi­na­tion, Jodie devel­oped a won­der­ful adhe­sive that holds, is com­fort­able and keeps the bril­liant shine of the glit­ter, as well as a whole new appli­ca­tion process for an excit­ing loose colour cos­metic line. Since 2001, Lit Cos­met­ics is now not only a bar-star prod­uct but has grown into a makeup that can be worn by any­one of any age at anytime—and that’s how Lit was born!

Why Lit is Dif­fer­ent
“No glit­ter, no glory” is our motto—fun, yet true. Being in “glit­terol­ogy” (the sci­ence of glit­ter) for 6 years we have improved glitter/loose colour makeup as it is sold in the mar­ket today. With our liq­uid adhe­sive now per­fected, we have also bro­ken down our pig­ments into 4 dif­fer­ent sizes and 4 dif­fer­ent varieties-Lit sim­ply spe­cial­izes in glitter/loose colour makeup. Remem­ber: There are no rules when it comes to Lit! From a sin­gle colour high­lighter to hav­ing 10 shades blended over your eyelids-we dare you… Let the fun begin, and your cre­ativ­ity soar!

What is the Vision of Lit Cos­met­ics?
Other than want­ing to “glit­ter the world” it has always been our dream to change the way peo­ple per­ceive or think about glit­ter makeup. Our vision was to cre­ate a good qual­ity, sexy new makeup line unlike any other that is fun, excit­ing, easy to use and suit­able for every­one. Whether it’s a day at the office or a spe­cial night out, glit­ter is the per­fect com­pli­ment to your look. Get noticed, get con­fi­dent — get Lit!

A Note To Cus­tomers
Hello fel­low Lit Chicks and we can’t for­get about those Lit Dudes out there, it is now time to have fun and be cre­ative with your make-up, acces­sories and fashion—to real­ize that girls do just want to have fun, as Cyndi Lau­per preached to us in the 80’s. Life is way too short to be bor­ing or to sim­ply be bored. Don’t be one of those girls who says, “Oh, that looks great on her but I could never pull it off.” You know who you are, and there are a lot of you because I hear it every sin­gle day! So don’t be blocked by your­self, break though and be bold, be beau­ti­ful. This next bit of infor­ma­tion may sound a lit­tle odd but it’s true, and all the present glit­ter girls of the world know this lit­tle secret and I believe in it as well: glit­ter is good for the soul. Some­thing hap­pens when you add a lit­tle glit­ter to your day. It gives you a smile, a good energy and just pumps you up and makes you feel glam, bam, thank you ma’am! So give Lit Cos­met­ics a try and enjoy every­thing you get out of it, like I have for the past 11 years! My final piece of advice for you is to stay young and try not to take things so seri­ously all the time, there is no age limit for glit­ter so you old gals like myself get it goin’ on and always remem­ber, “no glit­ter, no glory!”

CoolCanucks Blog Contest – Vasanti Cosmetics Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

Did you ever look in the mir­ror in the morn­ing and won­der who the face look­ing back at you really belongs to? Come on now, ‘fess up, some­body swapped their face with mine, when I was sleep­ing right? That CAN’T be me! That dreaded feel­ing that comes with age! UGH
With even the best facial care, age brings some lines and fine wrin­kles to the skin. The dis­rup­tion of smooth skin is accen­tu­ated by some cos­met­ics. Oh boy, do I know! My waste can has acquired more cos­met­ics in the last five years than my face has. When I was young, I could smear on just about any­thing and look great. These days the heav­ier foun­da­tions and eye shad­ows accen­tu­ate my every rum­pled bit of skin. I’ve been made up by some­one sell­ing their wares, then gone home and washed my face and won­dered why I looked 10 years younger when I removed their makeup! lol

I was ecsta­tic to be intro­duced to Vas­anti Cos­met­ics, who had the per­fect solu­tion for me called Vas­anti EYE WONDER triple action eye treat­ment cream! In just a week, you can notice­ably see the fine lines dis­ap­pear around my eyes which over­whelmed me! No other eye cream that I tried really worked, I’ve never really noticed a dif­fer­ence. I’ve been using their best eye cream and wow I am impressed with it!! The sim­ple instruc­tions tell you to appy twice a day for 36 days all around the eye area. This fab­u­lous eye treat­ment cream has triple action against:

Under eye cir­cles due to:

Over­pro­duc­tion of melanin, com­monly known to be hereditary;

Poor blood cir­cu­la­tion and break­age of the cap­il­lary walls;

Accu­mu­la­tion of hemo­glo­bin and inflam­ma­tion under the eyes; and

Thin­ning of the skin under the eyes.

Also fights wrin­kles due to aging, sun dam­age, or poor elasticity

Works on puffi­ness under the eyes.

The results are amaz­ing with each use! This eye cream is some­thing that I now can­not live with­out!! You MUST try this and see for yourself!!

Vas­anti Cos­met­ics also car­ries many dif­fer­ent shades and colours of phe­nom­e­nal lip­stick! I was sent a gor­geous Ultra Luxe Lip­stick with Pep­tide Tech­nol­ogy in the shade called “Kenya” which is a rich plum mauve! I love the way it feels on my lips, and bet­ter yet — I love the way it looks!!

•You can wear this sheer or layer it for some drama
•Lux­u­ri­ous lip colour for­mu­lated to plump, hydrate and smooth with the lat­est in pep­tide tech­nol­ogy
•Key Ingre­di­ent: Palmi­toyl Oligopep­tide — helps to increase lip vol­ume, reduce the appear­ance of fines lines and smooths the lips sur­face.
•Clin­i­cal tri­als of this pep­tide show results within 28 days of use Ultra luxe for­mula loaded with anti-oxidant vit­a­mins and botanicals

Vas­anti Cos­met­ics also sells gor­geous shades of blush, eye­shad­ows, mascara’s, con­ceal­ers, foun­da­tions, eye­lin­ers, face pow­ders — and the list hon­estly goes on!

Shop­ping on their web­site is a com­plete snap, as every­thing is so neatly cat­e­go­rized for you! Their cus­tomer ser­vice skills as well as deliv­ery time were also beyond outstanding!!
