Shopping at the Summit

Let me start by saying this was every make up junkies dream!!!  The companies that participated were the best of the best.
Alcone, Alison Raffaele, Armour Beauty, Big Girl Cosmetics, Cara Cosmetics, Cover FX, Crown Brush,  Crystal Wright Live, Embryolisse, Eve Pearl Beauty, Make up Forever, Naimie's, Naked Cosmetics, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Pencil Me In, Senna, Stila, Temptu, Yaby just to name a few. No I didn't stop at all of them.  But I will next time

One of my stops was at Embryolisse, the make up artist all seem to like and carry this in their bag.  http://www.embryolisseusa.com/.   So I figured has to be good.  
Lait-Crème Concentrè (24-Hour Miracle Cream) is a rich moisturizing lotion. This specially formulated lotion is quite versatile, throw it in your travel bag when you don't have enough space for numerous products. Our creamy lotion is really three products in one: it cleans, moisturizes, and reduces irritation after shaving. Massage into face and neck and rinse off with warm water to remove dirt and makeup. Apply to damp clean skin to seal in moisture before applying makeup. Smooth over legs after shaving to sooth irritated skin.

I have been using it for 2 weeks now, and it has a nice light creamy texture and sinks into the skin, doesn't not feel greasy at all. It does not have an SPF in it, so I have been mixing a bit of my SPF 25 cream with it.  The make up artist use it for that reason, they do not like anything to flash back in the photo. I do have mature skin and it does a good job of moisturing. This moisturizer works well under minerals, does not change the color of the minerals like some moisturizers do.

The next item from this line I purchased was eye cream, and if you all know me you know I buy everyone on the market. Well I am quite pleased with one, it is moisturizing enough for my wrinkled old eyes, again sinks into the skin, not greasy. Some eye creams tend to make my dark circles darker, yes ladies your eye creams can do that. This one does not and the under eye area stays nice and smooth all day.   
Soin Contour Des Yeux (Eye Contour Treatment) is a non-greasy eye treatment that has been specially formulated for the fragile area around the eyes. Rich in active ingredients this multi-purpose product acts to improve skin tone, firm skin, and reduce the appearance of small wrinkles and crow's feet.

The last item I got was a night cream Crème Onctueuse Raffermissante (Rich Firming Cream) is specially formulated with Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, Elastin & the Complex Vitamins A, E & F. The combination improves skin tone and elasticity while wrinkles and lines become visibly softer.
I used this as my night moisturizer. I cleanse my face with my Clairsonic, usually tone and then I apply a small amount of this cream. You do not need much it is very rich and silky and again it soaks into the skin leaving it feel smooth, soft and silky. My face in the am looks pretty darn good and it nicley moisturized and soft.
I have to say I am impressed with this line and will be ordering it again.

Come back and see what else I bought!!!!

Was the Embryolisse in English??? I got a whole fistwad (new word) at The Makeup Show, but it was all in French. I was too afraid I'd be moisturizing my face with a cleanser, lol. With my luck, I would have :)
