Motives Cosmetics

A few weeks ago I met National Motives Trainer Nathalie Smith, at her boutique Plush Beauty Box, in Washington D.C. who introduced me to the Motives Cosmetics product line. Skeptical at first, I had the opportunity to play around with some of the products on Nathalie's face this weekend. I have more than enough makeup in my kit, but after using these products I must admit I am impressed. The shadows where pigmented, went on smoothly and I loved the glitter pots and adhesive. The concealer quads were creamy and had good coverage with very little effort... I look forward to learning the line and playing with the products more in the future!!! In the meantime check out the two looks I created this weekend using some of Motives Cosmetics Product!
