|Blonde Opal color of By Terry’s Ombre Blackstar on Kristin|
So, I recently became a big fan of cream eye shadows. This shimmery cream eye shadow stick from By Terry is my absolute favorite. I love how iridescent and pigmented it is. It brightens the eye if you blend it all the way up to the brow with a beauty blender (and not some kind of food like an egg which seems to be trending on twitter right now!). It goes on incredibly smooth and can be used as a highlighter on the cheeks as well. I used the ‘Blonde Opal’ color as a base and highlighter for this smokey eye look. I have the ‘Blonde Opal’ color as well as ‘Frozen Quartz’. I have to say that my favorite color between the two is ‘Frozen Quartz’. It’s definitely worth the price since it is really a 2 in 1 product, both an eye shadow AND a highlighter.

Final Thought: Although I love this product and never leave home without this tiny silver stick stashed away safely in my purse, I do have to use a heavier under eye concealer for those days I need to wear more makeup or I have those pesky stubborn dark circles that appear much bigger than usual. With that said, I have tried many,many, MANY (probably too many) different under eye concealers for such occasions. I have not found ‘the perfect’ one just yet, but I have realized that my skin, and in particular my under the eye skin, requires different types of concealers for different situations.

My first Colbert MD purchase, the Intensify Facial Discs, did NOT disappoint – they are truly spectacular.
The Intensify Facial Discs are such a pleasure to use– they come with a backing designed to be peeled back halfway so you have a small built-in handle – it’s genius! Two to three times a week, after cleansing your face, you simply remove a disc from the beautiful glass stained jar and apply to a damp face. As you gently move the disc around your face it begins to lightly foam-up and it feels so refreshing and extremely gentle even on my sensitive skin. Colbert MD recommends massaging over your face in a circular motion for 30-60 seconds and then rinsing off. I’ve been using these discs once every two weeks for about three months now, and have experienced nothing but pure pleasure. I don’t use them as suggested (2-3 times per week) because I use so many other exfoliating products already and I don’t want to destroy my skin’s natural defense barriers. For me, one at-home microdermabrasion every 14 days has proven to be be just what the Dr. (Dr. Colbert that is) ordered. They’ve never irritated my skin in any way, which is why I love them so much – gentle but still highly effective at exfoliation while leaving my skin smooth, fresh and radiant. To sum it all up, these discs are quick and simple to use, they feel gentle on sensitive skin, and they produce fantastic results! Your skin feels just like a babies bum!
KRISTIN SAYS: I love the little built in handles on these discs! My combination/ oily T-zone type skin needs to be exfoliated heavily, so these are perfect for me to use as directed 2-3 times a week. The little pads with handles really allow you control where you are scrubbing and get into little crevices easier. I have to exfoliate my nose a little bit more than other areas of my face to keep it from getting congested, and these pads really help with that.
