Amongst a sea of brights, I love what PritiNYC has done for their Spring In Denmark collection. The shades are soft, and subtle, and a breath of fresh air. Included in this collection is a light blue creme, Jack Frost, that has a hint of shimmer visible in sunlight. Sheer Off-White Cherokee Princess is a palette cleansing light nude. Coyote Willow is a cool sage green creme. Canary Clover is a stormy gray creme.

Argentine designer, cosmetic historian, and artist, Gabriela Hernandez, designed luxury cosmetics brand, Besame Cosmetics as her interpretation of makeup shades and designs from the 1930’s and 40’s. Besame modeled their line after the shades and textures of cosmetics from eras past. Besame Cosmetics is perhaps most well known for their cult classic red lipticks. I have two additional products to share with you today, which I am sure will become makeup lovers must haves as well!
The Sephora exclusive Besame Cosmetics Vanilla Brightening Powder is suitable for all skin types. This softly tinted yellow powder is perfect for brightening under eyes, or all over the face for a velvety finish. It contains vitamin C, squalane and lecithin to soothe and hydrate. It has a beautifully soft vanilla scent.
The True Beige Souffle Foundation was too dark for my fair skin in winter, but should work once I am using self tanner. The full coverage creamy foundation is enriched with a collagen building ingredient to encourage skin firmness and elasticity. The souffle provides beautiful coverage that feels lightweight, and lasts all day.

I have pics and swatches of a few of Tarte’s Spring offerings to share today! Celebrated is the newest Amazonian Clay 12 hour Blush, while it’s said to be a warm pink nude, it definitely looks peachy on my skin. I suppose it’s a pinky-peach, and it’s beautiful and very wearable! The packaging is a little different, as this is part of the 15 year Tarte anniversary release. It lasts all day, and performs well like the rest of the Amazonian Clay blushes. Also in new packaging is the Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Ethereal Pink. This gorgeous peachy pink shimmer is LE, so grab it while you can. The moisturizing formula is wonderful, and this shade will look beautiful on a variety of skin tones! Glitzy LipSurgence lip tint is a neutral peach, filled with lots of gold shimmer. It’s not a color I would have been drawn to, but I’m glad I received it. It’s really pretty for layering! I actually love the look of it over The Ethereal Pink butter lipstick.
If you love the Maracuja oil and eye cream like I do, the new Neck Treatment might be right up your alley. Meant for the delicate thin skin on the neck and decolette, this intense hydrator will encourage skin cells to regenerate over time, and promote elasticity, while decreasing wrinkles and fine lines.
You probably know about my obsession for ALL of the LipSurgence glosses by now. The new Skintuitive Lip Gloss and Lip Tint goes on clear and adjusts to your own personal perfect pink shade. These are some of my favorite lip products, hands down.
I don’t have the Tartelette eyeshadow palette, but I’ve hear nothing but rave reviews if you love Tarte’s matte shadows. Do you have anything from Tarte’s Spring line up? Anything interest you?
In the midst of red carpet glam season, Skin Inc has released three beautifying skin kits. Skin Inc believes everyone has unique skin care needs, and it’s time for skin care to get personal! If you are new to the Skin Inc line, I recommend taking the skin identity quiz, so your skin care can be tailored to meet your individual needs. Skin Inc offers 9 serums, with endless combinations. The cult favorite, My Daily Dose, is a combination of three serums that will address your specific skin concerns.
I received the Get Perfect Kit ($65), which contains the Pure Revival Peel, Custom Blended Anti Aging Serum, and Pure Deepsea Hydrating Mask. The Pure Revival Peel combines AC-11, arbutin and fullerene into a non-abrasive exfoliating peel. When massaged into skin, you can see and feel the dead keratin forming into little balls. This may sound gross, but to a skin care junkie like myself, it’s great! I love to see and feel a product instantly working!
My skin is immediately smoother and ready to absorb the nutrients in My Daily Dose serum. My serum contains Coenzyme Q10, Marine-Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid, which are encapsulated and release active ingredients upon application. The CoQ10 supports skin renewal and energizing abilities, marine-collagen helps promote skin elasticity, and hyaluronic acid helps maintain long lasting moisture. I use three drops of serum morning and night, which are absorbed instantly into my skin.
The last step in my Get Perfect Kit is the Pure Deepsea Hydrating Mask. The mask can be rinsed off after 30 minutes (you know, if you’re rushing out to the red carpet…) or left on all night for maximum benefits.
The mask utilizes Okinawa deepsea water from Japan, soya bean extract, and hyaluronic acid. This triple threat hydrates, clarifies, and brightens skin. It’s also meant to be used under eyes, and it’s very gentle. The mask can be used daily, or as needed.
Sleeping masks are all the rage in skin care right now. What I’ve found is this mask is by far the best of the best. Its gel like texture sinks in and doesn’t feel sticky or suffocating on my skin like other sleeping masks I’ve tried. When I wake up the next day and wash my face, my skin is noticeably smoother and plump.
I am so impressed with the immediate effects of my Skin Inc products, and I look forward to trying other serums and treatments!
I’ve made Skin Inc part of my Sunday night at home spa night routine. I love to treat myself to a relaxing skin care regimen, take a hot bath and do my nails. It just sets the right tone to get my hectic Monday off to a great start!
About Skin Inc:
The newest treat for your lips from Bite Beauty is the Bite Butter Cream Lipstick. These moisture filled lipsticks are handcut, which exposes the lush inner core that’s packed with 5 oils. Each Butter Cream lipstick is filled with oils of lavender, shea, almond, pomegranate, and chamomile.
The shades range from light nudes to deeper neutrals. You can find the Butter Cream lipsticks for $28 at Sephora for $28 each. The 8 shades available are listed below. I love them all, but I’m especially interested in Heather, Rosewood, Hazelnut and Marzipan. Do you have your eye on any of these luscious new lippies?
Ever since joining the wrong side of 35, I’ve noticed some not so beautiful body changes, that are more than a little unpleasant. Let me forewarn you…your eyebrows will thin, as will the hair on your head. But this hair doesn’t just disappear….OH NO…it sprouts up in odd places. It can be anywhere. A few knuckle hairs, surprise! A small patch of wiry black chin hairs, yipee! Some days I think my hormones don’t know if I’m a mid 30s gal OR a teenage boy.
In my desperation, I went to my beauty besties at gloss48. GURL, they know how to solve just about any beauty related catastrophe you might be having! They told me they knew just the product I needed, AND it’s on sale if you want to try it too! Here’s a little more info about Inhibitif:
The face serum combines proven actives that help reduce visible hair regrowth, density and prominence for a smooth look that lasts longer. Visible results can be seen in two weeks, but keep it in regular rotation for 4-8 weeks. Be consistent, and you will see results! Use twice daily on clean skin, under serums and creams. Once desired result is achieved, reduce usage to every other day for maintenance.
Inhibitif contains hyaluronic acid for moisture retention, and will even calm and reduce redness from waxing. It even helps to prevent ingrown hairs. Here’s the full ingredient list:
Water (Aqua), Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer, Butylene Glycol, Tremella Fuciformis Sporocarp Extract, Dihydromyricetin, Chelidonine, Saccharide Isomerate, Ethylhexylglycerin, PPG-26-Buteth-26, Glycerin, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Betaine, Pentylene Glycol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Sodium Bisulfite, Farnesol, Linalool.
Unfortunately, gloss48 is not selling Inhibitif by the vat, but you can get the 30ml facial serum that I’m testing out on sale for $15. Just think of all that extra time you will have when you don’t have to pluck chin hairs! gloss48 also has a body serum, and a two pack of deodorant(aluminum free!) on sale for the next week. If you are a new shopper and use my affiliate link, you can save $10 off your first order of $30 or more. Trust me, it’s not hard to spend that on gloss48. I always find unique beauty buys!
I’ve been using my Inhibitif facial serum for a week now, and haven’t had any negative reactions. It’s easy to add this quick step in my skin care routine. I can’t wait to see what kind of results I have!
Don’t wait, and don’t waste any more time plucking those obnoxious little hairs that don’t belong. Head to gloss48 and pick up some Inhibitif, and let me know what you think!
