Makeup for a Busy Mom on the Go

As a busy mom of two tweens, I need to two things in my makeup.  First, I need something that stays on all day since I don't have time for touch ups.  Second, I need my makeup to be lightweight as I am starting to see fine lines, especially around my eyes -- and not mentioned I live in Florida where it's warm year round!


I was recently introduced to Christie Brinkley Authentic Makeup, a new collection which features foundations, eye concealers, highlighters, powder blush, powder bronzer, eye shadow palettes, mascara, brow-defining pencils and lipsticks. 

Christie believes every woman deserves effortless beauty, and is proud to offer a collection that has something for women of all ages.

I decided to test the Nudes eye shadow palette.  According to the web site,the products offers:
  • Neutral wearable shades
  • Velvety texture
  • First pan primer for smooth base
  • Antioxidant Vitamin C & E



 So, did I like the eye shadow kit? Yes! 
  • I like that a primer shade (Beam) is included in the kit.
  • I actually like the brush that is included with the kit (which I often throw away!).
  • The darkest shade (Midnight) can be used over an eyeliner for extra "oomph" especially at night time when I want a bolder look.
  • The colors blended together quite well, for a nice smooth look.
  • And best of all, the eye makeup stayed on for hours!


The new collection features foundations, eye concealers, highlighters, powder blush, powder bronzer, eye shadow palettes, mascara, brow-defining pencils and lipsticks. Prices range from $13.95 for the concealer to $27.95 for the foundation. Christie's new line is available at HSN, Kohl’s, Amazon & online at www.christiebrinkleyauthenticbeauty.com.  Returns are guaranteed for 30-days  so you have nothing to lose!
