Look at all of these wonderful Touch In SOL cosmetics that you could possibly win.

If you want to go from subtle to stunning in time for the holidays, Touch in SOL is simply a great way to do it.  The more of their unique products that I try, the more obsessed I am becoming over this Korean beauty brand like with the awesome new lot of cosmetics sent for this review and giveaway. 

Imagine the impression that you would make with bold, statement-making color along the base of your lashes.  With Style Neon Super Proof Gel Liners ($16) you can be the hit of that holiday party with your eyes lined in traditional black set off with some attention-grabbing electric blue Astral Ice, perhaps, for extra impact or another from among those four other bright shades.

These pencils are creamy, well pigmented and waterproof little gems that blend so easily due to their argan, jojoba, apricot, calendula, rose and olive oils.  They wear forever without smudging or fading.  In fact, the only way these pencils come off is with your makeup remover. To learn more and see swatches of the rest of this line’s shades, do read my earlier post.

To make your eyes even more dramatic, Touch in SOL’s mascaras are up to the task.  Their Paper Pusher mascara ($22) uses lighter paper fibers to lengthen lashes compared to traditional nylon fibers for the same purpose. Without the presence of parabens, sulfates or phthalates, one coat is enough to lengthen to keep it on the more natural side, two coats look more like false eye lashes.  However, these fibers are little hairs that can be irritating after a while if you have sensitive eyes or allergies like mine.

My preference is their Stretchex mascara formula ($22).  This product is amazing with how this stuff with its air polymer powder can build up lashes with its silk proteins.  Lashes look so much longer, fuller with some curl from its curved brush.  I had beautiful, full lashes that lasted all day in perfect shape without smudging. 

Pair a bright eyeliner like the Astral Ice with a trendy fuchsia like #03 Desire Fuchsia, a rosy tulip version of fuchsia in Touch in SOL Technicolor Lip & Cheek Tints ($22).  This tube has a sponge wand applicator and gives fantastic, lasting coverage in a formula that is enriched with mango seed butter and rosehip oil among its ingredients.

You can get double duty out of these tints!   This is #03 Desire Fuchsia.

Just as pretty is the #04 Mystique Coral Technicolor Lip & Cheek Tint to give both lips and cheeks an exciting pop of red-pink color.

These Technicolor Lip & Cheek Tints provide flattering bold color for the lips. On the other hand, the color when you dab some on your cheeks to blend with your fingers does give a healthy sheer flush that you can always deepen if you are so inclined with  little more of the tint.

Last time, I tried Touch in SOL’s Light Bright Brow Spot Highlighter ($21) in #001 For Your Eyes Only, a matte pink.  This time I got to sample the two pearl shades of #004 Golden Eye (a gold pearl) and the #002 License to Kill (pink pearl).  These highlighter pens are fabulous finds for playing up the eyes or in helping give you a killer illuminating glow to cheekbones or wherever you want to brighten up on your face.  All you do is just twist this pen to release that beautiful shimmer to its sponge tip.

Another new Touch in SOL product that I discovered was their Brow Gellin Eyebrow Styler ($22).  This is a pen with a gel-like texture that dries to a powder that features a built-in angled brush.  Simply twist it at one end to reveal the inner pot with color, then dip in the brush at the other. Swipe away the excess in the cap or tissue and just glide it on to shape and fill in your eyebrows.  This line comes in three shades  for light-to-medium blondes (Phoebe), dark-blonde to brunette (Rachel) and dark brunettes to black (Monica).  Monica was the deep brown umber shade I needed.

These Brow Gellin Eyebrow Stylers are waterproof, smudgeproof, sweatproof and stay on.  The only way to remove them are is with your eye makeup remover.  I tried a basic makeup remover that you just rinse off and it still wouldn’t budge.

With Touch in SOL, you have a lot of fun ways to express yourself. The cosmetics that I talked about are available at Sephora so make sure to check them out.  You might want to start with the Stretchex mascara because it is one of my favorites!
