Benefit Cosmetics Drops Air Patrol

Just out is BENEFIT COSMETICSAir Patrol BB Cream Eyelid Primer ($29 @ benefitcosmetics.com) and it seems to be breaking some ground.

It’s a shadow primer, has SPF 20, an EnviroDefend Complex, which is supposed to protect from environmental stress, hydrates the skin, and comes in a one-color-fits all shade, which seems to blend into being invisible on the skin.

There's A New Liquid Lipstick In Town

Ciate-London-Liquid-Velvet-2
Even though the category of liquid lipstick is still relatively new on the scene, there seems to be two different kinds that I’ve experienced - those that dry down on the lips and *BAM*, they don't move. These ones seem to be the most matte and drying but do last the longest, with some up to 12 hours. You can pretty much eat and drink anything without having to worry about your lip color coming off, unless what you're eat contains oils. And then there are those that are a tad more moisturizing than the aforementioned thus making them a tad more transferable. These seem to last about 4 to 5 hours but overall feel better on the lips.

The latter is what the latest from CIATE LONDON fall into with their Liquid Velvet Matte Lip Slicks ($19 @ ciatelondon.com) I was surprised when I read about these as I thought the brand was just about nails and would pretty much always be about nails but it’s great to see this new direction!

These contain Hyaluronic Acid and their own blend ingredient called PlushPigment, which helps with the staying power and moisturizing feel on the lips.

So which formula is the best? Click below to find out!

Here's What's New @ CVS/pharmacy

While I like my birthday, I hate when I receive a gift that really makes me question if the giver even knows me or not, so that’s why a gift card to CVS/pharmacy Beauty Club is perfect for me!

And they are rolling out some new brands for fall, so the timing is great. New brands to the stores/website: Skin+Pharmacy, MUA, Jouviance, Pop-Arazzi, Promise Organic, and Wilma Schumann.

Here's what I picked up on my trip to my local store:

  • Wilma Schumann Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads ($18/5 pairs)
  • Pop-Arazzi Nail Polish in Spice is Nice ($2.99)
  • Juviance Exfoliant Gentle Purifying Scrub ($22/3.4oz)
  • Promise Ultra-Moisturizing Argan Crème Lotion with Shea Butter ($8.99/6oz)

I went a little over $50 on the card, but that’s ok as I'm filing the difference as a birthday present to myself!

Disclosure: I rec'd a $50 gift card in order to facilitate this review.
