Mom-Me Time: Mommy Makeup

Brushing your teeth can be a task once you have a baby, so finding time to put on a lil make-up is almost impossible. But, one relatively new line of make-up was specifically developed for moms in a pinch.

Debra Rubin-Roberts, an award-winning makeup artist who had worked with Nars, Bobbi Brown and Laura Mercier, created Mommy Makeup out of necessity after the birth of her daughter. After much trial and error, she developed two kits and a six-minute routine using five to six multi-tasking products that create a “Clean-n-Casual” or “Pretty-n-Polished” look.

To learn more about the kits,

Each kit comes in a range of five shades and is accompanied by a “paint by number” instruction chart.

The “Clean-n-Casual” kit ($88) includes five products made to create a natural and bright-eyed, non-made-up look. Included in the kit are a concealer, lip and cheek tint, powder bronzer, powder and mascara.

The “Pretty-n-Polished” kit ($120) is designed for the mom who wants to look a bit more made-up for either the office or a night on the town, and includes concealer, shadow, a combination bronzer and blush, powder, mascara and combination lipliner and lipgloss.

I just went out the other day and bought - lipstick, mascara, compact and cover up and spent 75 dollars - so this seems to be on par with that. I think it is a cute gimmick and love that they show you how to apply. I am horrible at applying make up and may just buy it for that reason.

I agree, the name is kind of dumb but it's not a gimmick. when you're a mom, you really have precious moments for personal care so anything quick and easy is a must have.

Ridiculous! Just because you're a mom it doesn't mean you need a makeup called Mommy Makeup. Just a gimmick name to get moms to buy it.

It's actually not pricey if you buy department store brands. The quality is on par with them. If you're used to drugstore brands, then yes, it's more money but in my opinion, it's worth it. I am a big fan since reviewing it for the Celebrity Baby Blog last summer. It's the first time I've actually worn out the center of a powder because I used it so often.

I agree with Dana. Also, my routine is pretty quick as it is.
