Happy Valentine’s Day! Since I am home sick and single, I thought I’d show some love to some of my favorite new sponsors and companies. Remember: my policy is that I only review products I love. There’s tons that don’t make it here on the blog, but the ones that do? You can be sure that I say what I mean: I ♥ them.
This fabulous new line was created by makeup artist to the stars: Mally Roncal. Mally is a favorite among a versatile group of music industry heavyweights and actors including; Beyonce (!), Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige, Hayden Panettiere, Rihanna, Teri Hatcher, Celine Dion, Lee Ann Womack, and Ashlee Simpson. She created a new line of products that I’ve absolutely fallen in love with.
The packaging is gorgeous, and the products feel like silk. I swear, I’m not even exaggerating – they really do! I tired the Perfect Prep Poreless Primer,
(pictured) the Ultimate Performance Liquid Foundation
, and the Liquid Face Defender
. All three products were the lightest, silkiest products I’ve ever put on my face. I’m particularly in love with the Perfect Prep Poreless Primer, because it does a fantastic job of making my foundation last and I have full coverage for the entire night. As someone who is onstage a lot under lights, getting hot and sometimes sweaty, it’s important for my makeup to stay put. This primer does a great job with that, and feels pretty fantastic on my skin to boot.
Mally Beauty has a whole line of makeup products that I’d love to try as well with products for face, lips, eyes, body, and fragrance. If these three products that I tried are any indication for the rest, this line wins 5 stars ub my Diva Glam! review: I love them!
Manda is my favorite makeup artist, and she manages hair and makeup for all the Diva Taunia Dolls Burlesque shows! She reviews products for me as well, and she LOVED the Eve Pearl product line. Here’s what she had to say:
“Let me start by saying I have been wrong only a handful of times in my life and one of those times was when I passed up buying the salmon
HD Foundation Trio A
concealer from Eve Pearl at a makeup show in NYC on year. My fellow makeup artist friends were raving about how amazing the product is and how I just had to have it in my kit. I had purchased a pallet of concealers at a previous booth for a few hundred bucks so I passed in lieu of saving a few bucks: big mistake!
Fast forward a few years later and I’m doing reviews for Diva Taunia’s Backstage Pass and I open up a box of goodies from Eve Pearl. Concealer Trio A which has two fair shades and the salmon shade (pictured) and a Blush Trio Spicy Cheeks Tan. Oh. My. Goodness. I’m so in love.
I think to myself when I open up the concealer container, how good could this actually be, really? Oooooh, THAT good! Let’s start with the amazing texture, it’s oil free and feels so velvety and smooth. The blend-ability is so important and this may be one of the best I’ve ever used. You can put it on super sheer or build it to a full coverage without it looking like spackle on your face, I’ve used this on a few models with no foundation and it was beautiful. Next, longevity, I work very long days on set, and it LASTS ALL DAY. Colors are lifelike and none of that artificial coloring that matches no human being’s skin. I’m kicking myself in the behind for waiting so long to give this product a shot. I won’t be living without it anytime soon!
The blush trio is also so beautiful, the shades, though for med-tan skin tones work beautifully on my pasty white self as well, just need to use a little lighter touch. It comes with two blushes, one pink and one peach shade and a shimmery bronzer. Great for day to night wear. This didn’t even make it into my artist kit, it went right into my personal makeup bag! I can’t wait to get my hands on some more of the Eve Pearl line. Huge score for this Diva Glam review!
Diva Taunia Dolls Burlesque Sponsor Love:
This is the section where we give HUGE shout-out love to the costuming sponsors of our Fierce, Foxy, & Fabulous at 40! show
, happening this Sunday, February 19th
at The Junkyard in Nashua, NH
. These very generous sponsors have supplied us with some seriously sexy costuming, and we would love for you to help us show them some reciprocal love and visit their websites!
Divas & Goddesses
Becky has been a long-time supporter of both The Diva Taunia Dolls
AND The Backstage Pass Radio Program
. My guess is that today, on Valentine’s Day, many of my listeners who have won prizes from her are walking around in a sexy little number supplied by her! She’s got a fantastic selection of corsets, lingerie, shoes, swimwear in more and she celebrates the beauty and sex appeal of women of ALL shapes and sizes. She’s got something for EVERYONE on her site, and that’s why I love her so much!
Check out this hot bustier/corset over here on the left. This is being featured in our show along with a gorgeous bustle skirt that she sent me, and various other lingerie and stockings she’s provided us. her products are really high-quality, and just absolutely gorgeous. So go on and show Becky and Divas & Goddesses some love and get yourself all burlesque-d up too! ♥
This is our first time working with Kumillion Lingerie, but Beth jumped right on board with her support – literally! She sent us some really great booty shorts, along with some fabulous fishnet stockings and a gorgeous bustle skirt
(pictured) that will be making an appearance onstage too. Kuhmillion also offers a great plus size section
, and I love, love, love their whole burlesque vibe. Great prices, great selection, and really, really nice people. Stop over and tell them Diva Taunia sent you! xo
Here’s a sad little story with a very happy ending: I recently went to curl my lashes, and ended up ripping about half of them out on my right eye (don’t ask – too much mascara in play). So how happy was I when I opened this fantastic sponsor package to see bunches and bunches of false eyelashes in front of me??
De-Beauty saved the day, and all of the girls (including me!) are going to have sassy, long, gorgeous lashes for our show on Sunday! They have a really amazing selection of lashes from Natural
to crazy Glow In the Dark
styles! REALLY reasonably priced and easy to put on. If you’ve never used false lashes before, now’s the time to try them out: they make a HUGE difference when you really want a “wow!” affect. Try some out now!
Almost all of my solo performances are being costumed by Corset Chick! Robert was really great and supplied me with one of my favorite new corsets - the little polka dot number pictured here
. The fit is fantastic, and the quality is really top-knotch. Some of the best fitting corsets that I’ve come across, and Corset Chick is definitely one of my absolute favorite new sponsors. You’ll see me prancing around in this little red number
, along with this black vinyl (!) corset
, which is quite frankly, going to be my favorite part of the show. Prancing around in a black vinyl corset on my 40th birthday? Hells yeah, that’s a good birthday! lol Please show them some love and stop by their site for some high-quality, great fitting new corsets!
Baci-Farfalle is a long-time supporter of The Diva Taunia Dolls, and they’ve supplied us with some of our more elaborate corset costuming for each of our shows! Often times these are the “exclusive” corsets that I wear onstage. What I love most about them is that in addition to their HUGE selection of corsets
, they have sizes ranging to 7x-9x in some styles
. Like all of the companies above, they truly celebrate diversity in women, and that’s a company I want to get behind and support. Their customer service is top-knotch too! I love, love, love this site and all they have to offer.
