IMAN's New Makeup is a Must!

Last week I was invited to the launch of IMAN's new Luxury Radiance Liquid Makeup at the Affinia-Shelbourne Hotel here in New York City. Since I'm already a fan of IMAN Cosmetics I was really excited about learning and testing this new addition to her makeup line.



At the event, Iman, the gorgeous and surprisingly humorous supermodel, spoke with us about the benefits of wearing her foundations while 3 lovely models of different skin tones were showcased to demonstrate the precision of the product; the colors blended with each of the model's skin-tones perfectly. With 8 different shades, you're bound to create a perfect match too!

After seeing how great the models looked after their makeup application, I was looking forward to giving it a go myself. Because I only wear a tad of foundation under my eyes (to help blend my concealer) I was a bit hesitant to apply it over my entire face, but was pleasantly surprised at how far a little (4 small dots) foundation goes. It gave me a nice overall coverage without looking too heavy or overly made-up. It basically just helped even out my skin-tone.

The added bonus is that this mineral-enriched makeup is a composition of natural plant extracts acai and magnolia, and vitamin E, which we all know does wonders for the skin. All in all, every BG should have some IMAN cosmetics in her makeup bag because her collection really complements our various skin tones.


Luxury Radiance Liquid Makeup available at select drugstores nationwide for $15

I'm a fan and will always be one. I'm going to Target today to see if they have it in stock. Her foundation is flawless on my skin and a little goes a long way. This year she just has to represent at the Essence Music Festival.

I LOVE her products!! I just started using her foundations, powders and concealers about one month ago. The colors are great on my skin and the match is perfect!!

I just tried Iman's Second to None Stick foundation last week. I don't normally do makeup, but I had photos taken for graduation. Anyway, it blended well without being too heavy...I loved it! I've heard the liquid is even lighter, so that may be better for everyday.

@T - She definitely doesn't age. The woman is 55 and looks every bit like she's in her 30s!

LaTonya said...

I've never used liquid makeup before but always wanted to try it. And the way you talked about the beautiful results of Iman's models when they applied the makeup, I think I would love to give Iman's makeup a try!!

CurlyKye said...

I would love to win this. I'm not to big on wearing a lot of foundation either and considering how much (or should I say how little) you say you wear, I trust that this is definitely worth the try.

kbl said...

Sounds Fab! I will have to check it out.

Lac said...

I am just getting into makeup and brought her concealer at Ulta and now wish I brought the foundation too! It is so hard to match and blend makeup for woman of color and I like that there is not all the guess work with her products

Angela said...
