Palacinka Beauty is a little freaked out by cooling makeup but is starting to warm up to the idea of Clinique Lid Smoothies. What makes this eye make up feel so cool? Let’s look at the label to find out.

Ingredients

Water
Solvent.

Dimethicone
Silicone to give lids a smooth feel.

Isododecane
A volatile hydrocarbon, that means it will  evaporate and make your eyelids feel cooler. (I had expected to see some kind of menthol derivative to give a cooling effect but that’s not a good idea to use around the eyes – this is a much better solution.)

Methyl Trimethicone
Silicone based emulsifier.

Trimethylsiloxyslicate, HDI/Trimethylol Hexyllactone Crosspolymer
Spreading agents.

Polysilicone-11
Slip and smooth agent.

Glycerin
Another humectant.

Magneseum Myristate
Emulsifier.

Copernicia Cerifera

Wax, Silica,Microcrystalline wax
Gives the product body and controls spreadability. 

Butylene Glycol
Humectant.

PEG-10 Dimethicone
Emulsifier/silicone for slip and smooth feel. 

Cucumber fruit extract
Hey, you put cucumber slices on your eyes to reduce puffiness so this extract must help keep your lids smooth, right? Wrong! 

Carrot Root Extract, Spinach leaf extract, Broccoli Extract, Blueberry Fruit Extract
Other useless extracts that look good on the label.

Caffeine
Keeps your eyelids stimulated so you don’t fall asleep. Just kidding, this extract really does nothing. 

Aloe Barbadenisis Leaf Water
Looks good on the label.

Acetyl Hexapeptide-8
Supposedly relaxes muscle contractions to help prevent wrinkle formation.

Dimethicone/PEG-10/15 Crosspolymer
Gives the product body and feel. 

Ozokerite
Wax thickener.

Ethylhexylglycerin, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate, Hexyl Laurate
Emulsifiers.

Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone
Emulsifier/silicone for slip and smooth feel. 

Tocopheryl Acetate
Antioxidant, may help protect the product but won’t do much for your skin.

Dipropylene Glycol
Humectant, keeps the product from drying out.

Sodium Chloride
Thickener.

Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol
Preservatives.

Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Bismuth Oxychloride
Opacifier to help the cover skin better and sparkly bits to make it shimmer.

Iron Oxides
Colorant (Iron Oxides are one of the few colorants approved for use around the eye.)

Lauren creates a look with $14 worth of makeup!

Happy Sunday!

I hope it’s warmer by you than it is by me! It’s a rather chilly day–more winter than fall–over here in California. The sun is just barely peeking through the clouds. I’m one of those people who much prefers sun over clouds, because cloudy, grays feel so gloomy and make me feel less productive!

How do you feel about private label cosmetics/makeup?

November 8th, 2010

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

How do you feel about private label cosmetics/makeup? (Private label traditionally means that someone, say Celeb A, chooses to create their own makeup line, and they select products and shades out of a third party’s catalog, and then the third party will put their logo on it.)

I don’t really like it. I like the idea of someone being in the trenches, at least creatively, to develop the texture/product they want as well as the colors.

Today’s question is inspired by Beaut.ie posing the same one — I was curious about how Temptalia readers feel on the issue.

Do You Trust Cosmetic Ads?

September 8th, 2010

Post image for Do You Trust Cosmetic Ads?

When you’re watching a commercial with a flawless woman complaining about something and then putting on makeup to make her even more flawless, do you ever feel cheated? Do you feel like you can’t trust these companies that claim to sell you disappearing-wrinkle creams, acne-covering concealers, eyelash-enhancing mascaras, etc.? We’ve all been there, sitting in front of the TV, wondering why we never look the way the models do.

According to CosmeticsDesign, it’s time for that to change. Consumers are feeling more and more distrust every time they see one of these ads. One thing that will increase faith in these companies is the regulating associations, and obvious respect shown towards them. Also, the companies must (of course) fulfill their claims.

Social media is a tool that is more likely to help than hurt, if pulled off the right way, and it’s time for companies to step up to the plate. Feedback from purchasers will help, they claim.

Don’t sit on the couch disbelieving – buy the product and be amazed. And if you’re not amazed, that’s right – send that angry email. You have power. Use it.
