Motives by Lauren Ridinger

I hadn’t heard of the Motives brand until a friend who is a shop.com consultant informed me she sold the line on her site. She had heard good reviews and I had found some good ones after Googling it. I needed a restock of basics so that is what I started with. I bought a base shadow, a primer and a concealer. I will definitely be buying more! Here are the products:

Motives Pressed Eye Shadow in Vanilla $12.50.  I was looking for a base with a slight shimmer. The site didn’t have a description of color so I chose a shade close to what I needed. This is a matte shadow but an excellent base shadow.  Very fine, build-able and great to blend with.

Motives Eye Base $14.00. This is a great primer to wear alone to even out skin tone and also a great base for blending. It is a soft formula so during a heat wave, it still slightly creases. The formula is very silky and a little goes a long way. I have it pictured with a quarter to show that the opening is very small for a pot. I had longer nails when I first tried it and it was very hard to apply with my fingers. I advise using a makeup sponge. This stuff will last a while!

Motives Liquid Correction Concealer $17.00. I think I will stock up on this stuff. Like the primer, a little goes a very long way. It’s a light formula but has amazing coverage. I have it unscrewed in the picture because the wand doesn’t have a rubber grabber inside. Without it, the formula tends to glob up and goop out after being screwed back on. So I unscrew it a little as pictured and just dab my finger to the wand or screw ridges. It’s really all you need for under eyes and it controls the amount you use.

Thank you Jen for introducing me to such a great line! Check out these products and more from the Motives line at Jen’s Shop.com website:
