Holiday Gift Guide Selection 2012
Cosmetique offers a variety of name brand beauty products to choose from. The brand I had the opportunity to review is Madeleine Mono.What is great about these brands is they are high end cosmetics at a decent price.
Madeleine Mono Special Effects Face Powder
This special effect face powder helps reduce imperfections while adding a beautiful glow to your skin. As you can see in this photo it has many levels of colors. You can use all the shades together or one at a time. All of them work with every skin tone.
I liked this special effects face powder. I think some people think that it is supposed to act like foundation and be highly pigmented. This is not a foundation. Foundation is used to alter skin color and cover your minor blemishes. Special effects face powder is a finishing powder that will not alter your skin tone but will reduce lines and imperfections while giving you a sheer radiant glow to your skin. In addition, it will make your skin look fresh and clear.

Madeleine Mono Double Take Lipgloss –Very Berry
This lip gloss has vitamin E nutrients to nourish your lips and make them feel silky smooth.
When I first saw this lip gloss I noticed the cool mirror that was on the back. I hate having to take a mirror out while applying lip gloss or lipstick. Now you can have both! This gloss glides on smooth and is not heavy or sticky. In addition, it is pigmented well in color. My lips tend to get very dry this time of year so using a lip gloss with vitamin E or other nourishing nutrients is imperative to me. Cosmetique offers this on their website and currently is on sale.
Madeleine Mono Nail Enamel – Petal Pink
This beautiful nail enamel will leave your nails looking beautiful. It does not chip and dries very quickly. I did try this nail polish and would have taken a photo. However, I was heading to a makeup show and had my nails professionally done. I really liked how quick the nail polish dried. I have four children so I never have much time to sit and let them dry for very long. I would say it took approximately 3 minutes for them to be dry enough. Cosmetique offers this nail enamel in colors Petal Pink, Raven Red, Just Peachy, Very Berry, and Bronzed Goddess. You can find it on the Cosmetique website Here.
Madeline Mono Lip Crayon- Very Berry
Your lip gloss will stay on longer by using this lip liner to go with the lip gloss. It helps prevent any feathering and bleeding of the color to make it last. In addition, it will add definition to your lips too. I used this with the lip gloss and I liked how the 2 colors blended well and it did not look like I had a big ring of color around my lips. I am not a lip liner person. However, I find myself using it a lot more now. I do not press down hard when applying so the color is very light around the lip area.
