Aveda Triple Accent Petal Essence In Topaz Taupe
If you are looking for a product to look great with no effort (that’s also great for your skin), then the new Triple Accent pencil is just what you need! This pencil has a side especially for lips & cheeks and another one for the eyes. I found that the lips side was super creamy, moisturizing and easy to blend – more adaptable than most multiples that I’ve tried. The staying power of the color on both my lips and cheeks was phenomenal! I would apply on the weekends in the early morning and late at night the color was still there, looking fresh and vibrant! The Heather side for lips and cheeks is a very flattering reddish-wine shade, great for fall but certainly adaptable year round. The Taupe eye side was also impressive! The pretty silvery based-taupe with shimmer (not sparkle) made a good base for powder shadow when I had a little extra time, or more often than not, by itself, it's a silvery taupe. This side can also be used as a highlighter on the cheekbones, which is how I applied it for evenings out occasionally. I also loved the convenience of throwing this in my purse and having one product for every touch ups if I needed it! This is also a must have for travel to help keep the cosmetic bag light. This is one of the darkest colors in all the pencils, and will work very well up to a Venus Williams shade. Editor’s Note: This product is made with FSC-certified wood and rich plant ingredients. It combines plant emollients and a blend of organically grown berry anti-oxidants.
Far from being my 'crowning glory' my hair is actually my worst nightmare! I have hair that happily resides in 'neither here nor there' land when it comes to attributes and seems to have a mind of its own: oily & flat at the roots... Far from being my 'crowning glory' my hair is actually my worst nightmare! I have hair that happily resides in 'neither here nor there' land when it comes to attributes and seems to have a mind of its own: oily & flat at the roots but some days I get amazing root lift; dry ends that are fragile no matter how many 6wk hair cuts I maintain; easily straightened but immediately ruined by humidity; some days does exactly what I want and others not... I curse that I was not one of the fortunate (and rare?) people who has 'normal' hair! However, I was recently sent a sample of the new Aveda Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother and not only am I loving it, so is my hair. It protects against heat & humidity for up to 12hrs, applies super lightweight and doesn't feel as though I'm either coating my hair in an oil slick, or weighing it down with too much product, plus I can use it before drying & styling and after to get rid of frizzies and seal ends. It may or may not be the hair Holy Grail but it's workin' for this girl! PS... there's also an entire Smooth Infusion line, in case you're interested.
