Las Vegas based beauty brand, Rain Cosmetics is billed as “The sexiest makeup in the world”. Having said that, it’s no surprise that their products have names like Legend, Cathouse, Mix, Moon, The Strip and Poker (what would Las Vegas be without the aforementioned:)). The sexy glitzy products have been used on the cast of Dancing with the Stars, as well as, Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Mel B, to name a few.
The makeup for eyes and face is encased in sleek packaging that sparkles with shiny iridescence….sort of reminiscent of compacts my mom used when I was a child. For this reason I found myself instantly drawn to the products.
For this review I tried the Diva Eyeshadow Quad, Legend. While the shades appear to be a combination of matte and shimmer textures, they are all somewhat matte, which led me to incorporate a separate shimmer shade to create a complete look and test the quad. My first application of the shadow was during the day. It held up fairly well even though it was hot and I was a bit, ahem, sweaty. My second application was at night, so, I reached for an eye shadow primer and did a heavier application. Again, the quad performed well and help up!
I have had the opportunity to play around with several Rain products. For me, the hero of the line is the Natural Mineral Foundation. It is a powder and foundation in one and can be applied wet or dry. How cool is that? When I applied the dry foundation over my moisturizer and primer it gave me a full coverage finish. In contrast, my application with a moist sponge gave me a dewy look, which is great for this spring/summer. By-the-way, don’t worry about the sponge going musty if you wet it…the compact has tiny vent holes on the bottom to dry out the sponge – more cool points.
