Ah, sunscreen, so many choices…and so little time. For my face, I am very finicky about the texture, the smell, the staying power and also the convenience level of the packaging (must be travel/gym ready). This new Clarins sunscreen was a relief in a sea of sunscreen I have been testing for the last month or so. I love the little cylinder tube which is super portable. The formula itself is very lightweight and on the thin side, but so concentrated I didn’t need much to cover my face (so it is very long lasting). There is a light fragrance, which dissipated quickly. The lotion glided on my skin without a trace of stickiness, white cast, or oil. The finish was matte. I found that it was light enough to be layered over my favorite serum and under my liquid bronzer or tinted moisturizer that I tend to favor in the summer months. As a matter of fact, this is actually the perfect skin primer before makeup application. The lasting power was fantastic on days I was working, running around outside or actually sunning at the beach. I had no breakouts or irritation from the product and it didn’t run or melt on my skin. It also left my skin soft and moisturized without feeling oily, so on the weekends I would just wear this with a little mascara and lip color and I was good to go! This is a non-chemical sunscreen which many of you will also appreciate. It’s made from 100% minerals. Yes, this is another product that is indeed worth every penny and I will be stockpiling! Note: As an added bonus if you are like me and always around computer screens, Clarins has added protection against electromagnetic waves in this formula.

  • This is so easy to use and the color is great.

Every now and then a cosmetic product comes across my desk that doesn’t seem like it would rock my world; but ends up doing just that. Mugler’s vinyl gloss is the latest product to do this for me. I absolutely fell in love with this “brush-less & comb-less” mascara. The packaging is of course right up Mugler’s alley – modern, slightly odd and yet still sophisticated. The mascara tube itself is a unique concept that includes a long, narrow “paint brush” (more like the type of brush you would find in a lip gloss tube) which I applied over my lashes. The shiny mirror on the top echoes his “Mirror Collection” theme. I found the liquid formula itself was a thicker version of the usual mascara formula, but was surprisingly easy to work with. When brushing over my lashes with the applicator I was amazed that I was able to get all of my lashes – from the really short tiny ones in the corners to the longer ones in the center. The gloss made my lashes deep, shiny black, very full, lush and long. It was a very glam look, but I found it could still work for daytime. During the day there was no flaking, running or smudging at all. This is also amazing for a dramatic sexy, night time look, with a dark smokey eye or with a sweep of black liquid eyeliner on the top lid. It’s a luxury purchase, but for something this unique, beautiful and amazing it is truly worth it. Note: For really high-impact lashes this can be layered over one coat of your favorite Volumizing mascara http://boutique.thierrymugler.com

Of course, being YSL, the packaging is super glamorous (yes it’s one you just like to look at!). The fragrance is also lovely (I liked the decadence of this). As a mascara, it is also fantastic, but it should be noted that this formula is for a lengthening effect rather than an overall volume and curling effect. I found that it gave me a very long but natural look. The brush barrel is very large and the brush itself is quite different than most on the market, made with tons of very short, thin rubber bristles on all sides which attached itself and “grabbed” on to my lashes very well. The shade of burgundy was lovely for a chance of pace. The burgundy was noticeable and very flattering with my eye color. I found it was perfectly appropriate for day time, since it’s not over the top. (This color will be more pronounced if you have lighter lashes). Most importantly, it did make my lashes look significantly longer. My lashes were not hard and brittle; they were soft and flexible. The staying power was also impressive, and it was truly waterproof. It did not run or flake when I was in humid weather, which I loved! The mascara really stayed on until I removed it with makeup remover. I will note however, that the formula is a drier one, so I had to make sure that I closed it completely after each use, as I noticed that additional air did make it drier.

This is a fantastic, luxurious 2-in1 product that is perfect for summer trips to the beach or just trips in general! From Phyto I would expect no less, since I am a big fan of their hair products which also work very well for me. The wash is a smooth silky liquid that is thick and rich. It’s very concentrated so just a few squirts of the tube produced all I needed to cleanse both my body and my hair. The lather is super creamy with a rich fragrance that I loved. It’s a lovely, decadent spicy, slightly floral scent that was not too overpowering, but did linger on my body and hair nicely after rinsing off. Post shower my skin was very soft and hydrated and I skipped using lotion on most days (very dry skins will still need an after shower moisturizer). My hair was soft, shiny and not weighed down at all. All traces of chlorine/sand from the beach were gone from my as well. Note: As a shampoo, this formula works best on naturally straight, wavy and healthy relaxed hair.

In Asia and Europe most of my friends and associates always have a water spray on hand and use it regularly. They also have great skin! I loved this thermal water and can say that it is one of the best water sprays I have used. I think it worked wonders for setting my makeup and also when I wanted to dampen my cosmetic sponge to apply my foundation for a natural, dewy effect. It’s a very convenient sized tube that’s perfect for any bag, the plane or the office/gym. It was so refreshing during the day or after work before touching up my makeup for an evening out. This was also wonderful to use in power masks or cloth masks as opposed to regular water. It was also wonderful to use on my body after a gym workout or day at the beach – it left my skin soft and hydrated and also more soothed. The nozzle on the bottle is small but spray is a very strong fine mist (only a press or two is enough for the entire face), and there is no fragrance. This also made the perfect starting point to applying my richer night creams before bed. I found that my skin really absorbed the creams better, and after using it this way for several weeks, my skin has never looked better! This is a must have product for everyone’s skin care routine.

Due to some changes in the weather and (some recent skin treatments I think), I recently had some red patches on my skin – my cheeks lower jaw and chin. This cream came into my life at just the right time. I applied at night and woke up to find that it had soothed and cleared up my irritations overnight. My skin was soft, clear and glowing! It’s a soft, medium weight white cream which takes a minute or two to sink it, but does not feel greasy or heavy. I use this now whenever I have a peel or apply an AHA or glycolic mask, as well as after shaving to keep my skin clear and irritation-free. This is also a good cream for bumps or pimples that are red or irritated as well. I was truly amazed and will keep a tube of this on hand forever in my medicine cabinet, just as I do Band-Aids or rubbing alcohol -- it’s that essential! Note: This is best not used as a treatment cream for Eczema.

If you are looking for a bold, striking lip that’s not too dramatic or showy then this is the color! The formula itself is very pigmented (no sheerness here) with a soft satiny shine, without shimmer. The texture was smooth, and was very moisturizing for my dry lips. This is a long lasting formula, so the lasting power was fantastic and also worked well in humid weather for me. It is non-scented. This color is a dynamic medium-toned pink that will work well with many skin tones, best up to a Gabrielle Union shade. The packaging, as with all of the Dior products, is exquisite, glamorous and yet still simple. It’s the classic deep blue Dior’s cased with a touch of silver. This is simply a great lipstick that looked gorgeous on me!

This was a nice chance of pace – and with a great impact too! I’ve never used Givenchy mascara before, and I was very impressed not only but the packaging and luxury of this product, but also the performance. It gave me really intense lashes that were just as the color describes, black, but with a very nice tinge of deep purple, which I loved, especially for evening looks (It also photographs really well!). I had volume, (most importantly) length and no smudges, flaking or smearing. Two coats were really all that was needed (as a matter of fact, I only got clumping when I tried to layer it on more than this). This is a lovely mascara and I look forward to exploring more of Givenchy!

The first thing that struck me was that this cream was in a tall sturdy jar (plastic not glass) with the lovely gold lettering. I found this thick rich cream perfect for my very dry skin but not too greasy to use during the day. This also made a nice hand cream and foot cream for my dry skin. It is significantly perfumed like most French lines (floral/fresh mix) and decadent in price, but oh what a lovely way to keep skin soft and supple! Because of the packaging this is best for leaving on a vanity or larger open space in your bathroom. It really made me feel glamorous and decadent when using it after my shower. As for the performance I was very impressed. I didn’t get any of my usual dry patches when using this. The cream is very concentrated and silky so it spreads easily and a little goes a long way. This is a new winter time must have for my body skin care routine. P.S. This crème is for very dry, dehydrated skin. For slightly dry skin try the lotion version of Hydrofilia, (which is also perfumed).

This is one of the freshest, vibrant and uplifting fragrances I have tried in quite a while. To begin with the packaging, I loved the gorgeous fuchsia colored glass bottle at first site. The beautifully gold cut out YSL logo band beneath the stopper is also a glamorous touch I loved. The very first time I used it, it really blew me away. The combination which did this for me was their lychee note combined with the rose. This gave it the edge and uniqueness it needed to really make this stand out, as Rose can at times in fragrances come across as over familiar and without much thought. At first the citrus notes burst though to my nose as well as on my skin, and then the sweetness kicked in (with notes of peony and litchi.). After a short period of time the freesia softened the citrusy sweetness with a pinch of pink pepper, and then I could detect a very mild a rose note and a hint of soft wood. As the day went on it mellowed and mellowed but the lasting power was phenomenal. The fragrance ended up being very mild, and I found that I continually smelled my wrist because of the lovely scent, and even as it mellowed towards the end of the day. What I really loved is the sense I of joy I got from this fragrance. It just made me smile every time I wore it. This scent does not overplay the rose, not does it overdo the lychee. The base is lovely and dry, woodsy but not overly so. This has originality and an olfactory punch. Modern and chic, contemporary and glamorous. The bottle is simple but with a colorful modern-young-glamorous vibe – and yes, even though I’m not a real “pinky” type of girl, I loved that they did a gorgeous fuchsia pink bottle. I Loved looking at the bottle just as much as I loved wearing the fragrance. This makes a perfect day fragrance, and (which also came to mind), a Sunday church/brunch or wedding fragrance, and of course an amazing Valentine’s gift for the fragrance lover in your life!

I really have gotten used to multi-purpose beauty products, so a moisturizer must do more than one thing (and well) to get my attention. This is definitely a moisturizer that I liked more and more the longer I used it and saw multiple results. This moisturizer has illuminating shimmer, as well as sunscreen and skin evening properties. I did like this from the start – It's got a light, pleasant scent that reminded me vaguely of marshmallows (a very nice change of pace actually). The texture is not tacky, comfortable enough on the face so I didn’t feel sticky, (but I did need to wash my hands after applying). It is light-to-mid weight, features a subtle pearly bronze shimmer (which helps provide the "healthy glow") and the sunscreen is avobenzone based. After several weeks my skin looked more even and I really liked the way my skin glowed even if I didn’t wear much make up. I didn’t experience any breakouts or clogging of my pores. I think this is really a lovely product from this new CHANEL skin care line that deserves your attention! Note: This product will work best on normal to drier skins.

I am moderately obsessed with this mascara - and i have not even purchased it yet. Mascara is one product i cannot be without - i normally go through my days with just tinted moisturizer, bentint, and mascara. With two brushes, you can get every lash! Packaging is gorgeous too. I am tempted to get the purple shade.

It’s a very unique concept – It started out on my face as a gel, and as I massaged it in, it turned into an oil. The oil felt soft and smelled amazing (a lovely orange/tangerine scent), and took off every last trace of my makeup. When I added water to rinse it off, it changed yet again into a cleansing milk and came off easily, with no oily residue. I was left with a very smooth, soft, clean face. I never used anything like it. It's very pleasing to the senses. It smelled great, felt nice and left my face clean and soft, and hydrated! My skin did not feel stripped or dry, just a clean, smooth canvas at the end of the cleansing process. This cleanser contains Marula Oil, which is a "dry" oil, almost instantly absorbed by the skin. It felt so good to massage it onto my face that I looked forward to my very pleasant evening experience every night. There were even some evenings when I was so tired that I decided to skip moisturizer, and found that I really could! This is worth every penny, as it is truly a luxurious and effective product. And even better, the three-phase process allows you to pack fewer skin care products if you are crunched for space!

It gave me a great glow, and I used this everyday instead of my usual foundation or tinted moisturizer. The consistency is light, it's a liquid/gel that melts onto the skin and provides a refreshing, tingling sensation (watch the eye area when applying!). It was not sticky at all, and quickly absorbed into my skin. The fragrance is also divine (a nice slightly spicy smell from the monoi oil). This is a product that not only stays put, but actually helped control my oily T-Zone situation. This is the must-have product for very hot days - I've used this in Miami where the weather is incredibly hot and it did not become greasy and stayed on all day, and didn’t clog my pores. The shade is a light bronze coming out of the tube, and also contains light golden shimmer, so I made sure not to apply too much during the day. This is a little luxury that is worth the price, and lasts quite a long time. Note: If you have drier skin, you will need to apply a light moisturizer before using this product.

I am admittedly a sucker for Chanel cosmetics, but I have mostly used the lip products, so when I had the opportunity to try one of their Irreelle blushes I was ecstatic! This is exactly what I would have thought a Chanel blush would be- a pinky-red blush with a bit of shimmer that will actually work with many different skin tones. On my skin it looked like a healthy flush of color -- a lovely “lit from within” effect. This is a pink, but it is amazing. Not a true pink -- almost a purply pink. But don’t worry! It is gorgeous and the shimmer is very subtle and flattering and adds a nice bit of dimension to the product. It looks great with all types of eye looks (dark smoky, grey smoky I even tried it with a dramatic navy smoky eye at night and it was amazing! The staying power is fantastic as well. This is a little gem of a product. This will work best up to about a Gabrielle Union shade. A luxury that is worth every penny! P.S. This also an amazing shower gift for your beauty loving girlfriends! I recently provided several of these for my good friend’s wedding shower and you should have seen how they swooned

I used it morning and night this winter and it has kept my skin soft and radiant looking. My skin hasn’t been dry this winter since using it and I can definitely notice an improvement in my overall complexion. The texture and scent (very green – like pine trees) are very pleasant and the presentation elegant yet practical. It is pleasant to use and delivers good results for the price. With this cream, my skin felt instantly comforted and refreshed. It's more like smooth custard when scooped out of the jar, but once it hits my skin, it sinks in as quickly as a lotion would. My skin feels slightly tingly afterwards and almost matte. looking matte after applying moisturizer! The product is packaged in a large jar and comes with a small spatula (so you don't have to plunge your fingers into the pot) -- I used one good sized scoop per application. Great for "tight" winter skin. Also love the little scoop so you don't have to plunge your fingers into the pot. My skin has never looked better or felt softer!!! Love Love Love this!!!"
