cattiva cosmetics logoI can be accused of being a frumpy mom at times, I admit it but that doesn’t mean I don’t love the girly things in life. CATTIVA cosmetics are new to my makeup table but I think if the rest of their products are as great as the Belezza Blush/Bronzer Mineral Duo they might become a staple.

Inspired by Italian Romance, CATTIVA cosmetics is the first high-fashion, anti-aging line of color.With its chic, glamorous packaging, antioxidant rich formulas and rich long lasting colors, CATTIVA is rapidly becoming the world’s first fashion accessory makeup brand that makes a woman feel sexy yet sophisticated while defying age. Virtually weightless, our light reflective minerals make blemishes and fine lines practically invisible leaving your skin looking flawless and radiant. From Il Primo Bacio Lip gloss (first kiss) to Tutto Giorno Shadows (all day), the products are synonymous with old style Glamour in a modern world.

Extravagance has never been so good for you!

cattiva cosmetics blush bronzer belezza compact
With the cool weather comes the darker more dramatic eye and lip colors. In the summer pinks and browns were my go-to but now I’m reaching for greens, violets and chocolates. With the new color palette I needed to change my cheek color. Going from a peach to a rose was working ok but I hate the obvious look of blush so I usually go without. Bronzers always looked fake to me, too sparkly for everyday wear. I tested out the Belezza Blush/Bronzer Mineral Duo on my girl’s weekend, I figured getting dressed up for the club and dinner was the perfect time to test it out.  I start with brushing along my temples, cheeks and nose and work the residual powder left on the brush along my jawline and down onto my neck.  using a fluffy brush gives it a smooth blended finish without looking like I’m trying too hard.

tanned and fresh with no side effects from the sun

I loved the fresh look it gave me, I looked sun-kissed. I did spend the day outdoors too so just to be sure I used it again on Thanksgiving and looked at the pictures that were taken that day and really noticed the radiance it gave me. I’m naturally tanned but using this combo blush/bronzer adds brightness to my sometimes dull complexion. You might be wondering why this isn’t something I use every day but honestly I don’t wear make-up every day. This is going to become a natural step in my FULL face application for things like going out to dinner, visiting friends and spending the day OUT with the family.
