These JELLY PONG PONG Trifle Spongy Lipsticks ($16 @ jellypongpong.com) are really fun. And the word spongy in the name is quite accurate. The consistency is like a gummi candy but it doesn't wear goopy or super thick, just a sheen. The Lipsticks with color are ok like Brandy, which is a shimmery pink, but I think the best ones are the ones with no color, like the Blackcurrant one, which smells just like the real thing. Think of the non-coloring ones as just a simple lip moisturizer. Picks: Blackcurrent and Jam.

A favorite new face finisher-offer this spring is CLiNIQUE’s Blended Face Powder and Brush ($18.50 @ amazon.com) in new Invisible Blend. It helps set makeup and the travel brush is totally totable. And because the brush has a cap on it, they even recommend loading one application into the brush and take it with you in your evening purse for a "out on the town" touch up.
In continuing our coverage of great Shea Butter products, I am really surprised at the number of ones that have the word Shea in the name of the product and then the ingredient is waaaaay down on the list. It seems like it was almost an after thought, “Oh we need to put some actual Shea Butter in there since it has it in the name.” Anyway, here are some more recommendations with the ingredient right at the top of the ingredient list.
CAROL’S DAUGHTER Unscented Shea Body Butter ($20/8oz @ drugstore.com)
FREDERIC FEKKAI Shea Butter Hair Mask ($22.50/5oz, $32/9oz @ target.com)
JERGENS Shea Butter Cream ($6.29/7.5oz @ drugstore.com)
- BATH BY BETTIJO 100% Pure Whipped Shea Butter ($16.50/2oz @ bathbybettijo.com)
Why am I such a sucker when it comes to fragrances this time of year? I feel like I have to try them all but I guess that’s a good thing since you reap the rewards of hearing about a good one! L’ARTISAN PARFUMEUR L’ete en Douce ($135/3.4oz exclusively @ barneys.com) has “wear me with a spring dress” written all over it. It has top notes of mint leaves and rose essence; middle notes of orange blossom, lime tree, green hay and base notes of botany, white wood and white musk. Don’t you deserve a new fragrance this season?

Myohmyohmy, is this one good! SONYA DAKAR just came out with a body line and the Mineral Polish ($48/12oz @ sonyadakar.com) from it is a really nice treat. The main ingredient is Dead Sea Salt and we all know the rich minerals that are found in the Dead Sea. Other good things? Organic Omega-3 Complex, oils of almond, sunflower, apricot and vitamin E. Bad things it does not contain? Parabens, dyes or sulfates. I’ll keep you posted on the other products from the body line. Available in two scents: Cara Cara and Verbena Cypress.
