Fall Is Here And So Are New Lipsticks And Shades

Joseph Kellner

Fall is a wonderful time for all new types of clothing styles and hair styles and makeup.  Having a lot of time this past summer to try out a lot of store bought makeup I would love to recommend some of the new Rimmel Lipsticks.  I have used the this past summer and have had no problem with lasting, or smudging or fading.


The 1st Lipstick collection created by Kate Moss High intensity color for up to 8 hours. Formula infused with Black Diamonds, reflects light like never before. Captures all the flair, edge and timelessness of Kate’s unique look.  Lovely to work with. Holds well for camera and film. Never needed to touch up my applications.


High color impact for up to 8 hours wear. Color that turns heads ! Intense long lasting color up to 8 hours +25% color impact ! Smooth creamy texture for comfortable wear all day long. Lovely colors and smooth sheen to them.


Give them a try Rimmel has some lovely fall colors.


Gotcha Covered NYX Concealers Not For Me!

Joseph Kellner Salon

This product is very thick, so yes it will cover you up but it doesn’t set.  I tried everything not setting it,  setting it with powder, I even used corn starch nothing works. Baby powder and flour didn’t even work.  Very hard product to work with it becomes rubbery and will peel off the skin.  Also with any little touch the product will slide off.  I don’t recommend, not even for home makeup. Maybe yet special effect Halloween makeup.

Maybellene Cover Stick Corrector Concealer Thumbs Down!


Doing a photo shoot last week I decide to give another store bought brand a try. I choose Maybellene Cover Stick as a concealer but I also used it as a highlighter also.  Prepping the skin with a moisturizer and applying the Cover Stick to the areas that needed concealing the product went on smooth and dried very fast. So I could not really work with the product and it also causes tugging to the skin.  Let me suggest that you only use a little at a time. Because it will cover and also highlight the skin at the necessary places needed for you application.  But as time went by it completely dissipated. This is also a non water resistant product. Would I use it again probably not.

I applied to the eyelids and used a soft camel shadow on top of it and there was no flaking nor did the product move.  The product claims , Completely conceals blemishes, dark circles, and other imperfections.  I would not say it  does that at all.  A LOT OF CONSUMERS HAVE SAID THEY HAVE BROKEN OUT IN A RASH FROM THIS PRODUCT.



Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Gel Thumbs Up!

Joseph Kellner

On a note from myself I have used this product for myself. I get dry eye’s and flaking under my eyes from time to time. And this product is a god send for me.  If you have a client who has dry skin I would highly recommend this product for them.  It is instant relief.  The product comes in a white gel and only a finger tip of the product is needed. I also use this as a primer before makeup applications.  The product lasts for a good while, it comes in a 50ml container and one has lasted me overall one year.  I love how light this product feels yet feels refreshing and hydrating. I use it before applying foundation and really adds glow to my clients skin. I really like this and would recommend to friends and clients.

An ultra-light, gel-like cream that absorbs instantly to give skin intense hydration. Infused with our Super-Duo Charged Water technology, this formula leaves skin more supple and luminous.  It isn’t oily, meaning that once applied, one’s skin will not be as shiny as a mans shoes after the old school sit and shine.  The best part is, I have noticed my makeup applications has better consistency when applied. It is a smooth application every time, resulting in less lines, and my clients skin is overall brighter.  Worth the money and it lasts a really long time, so give it a try. You have nothing to lose and all to gain.

Fit Me® Matte + Pore Less Foundation

Joseph Kellner Salon

The other day I went to Target to get a product to use for my last photo shoot and I decided to use Maybelline FIT me! The MATTE PORELESS product I picked out for my client She has oily skin to the Normal to Oily natural tan is what I selected.  Applying it with a finger was not a good idea, but then I selected a brush to apply the foundation. It took a smeary attachment to the skin. I was not used to see this so I had to use a extra amount to apply to the skin.

Fit Me® Matte + Poreless Foundation face makeup. Mattifies and refines pores and leaves a natural, seamless finish. That is true to the definition of the product, but be prepared to use a good amount to achieve a perfect application with the product.

Joseph Kellner Salon

Ideal for normal to oily skin, our exclusive formula with micro-powders controls shine and blurs pores.  That is true for the product and I hardly had to use a concealer on my client. Leaves a natural, seamless finish. Dermatologist tested. Allergy tested. Non-comedogenic.

Apply foundation onto skin and blend with fingertips or an applicator and blend. This part I would tend to not agree with I would use a brush for the application. And especially don’t use a sponge for the application, the sponge just soaks up the product and that’s not good.

Would I use this for Photo Ready presentation, I would have to experiment more on the usage. It is a wonderful product to use for you day to day needs. I would recommend that for the job. Photo Shoots I will need more time to work with the product. It did make the skin feel very smooth and dried quickly. No sheen at all.
