Do you find yourself always on the hunt for the perfect not-too-sheer-not-too-chalky nude lipstick? I think I’ve found it in BOOTS’ No7 Stay Perfect Lipstick in Angel ($9.99 @ target.com). It’s a little on the pinkier side of nude so it’s totally YLBB.
I really don’t care for the whole celebrity fragrance partnership. I think the market is saturated and I can’t believe it when I hear of yet another coming out. I know that each celeb is somewhat involved in the creation process but to me, it’s an area better left untouched by celebs for the most part. I did come across one that I am embarrassed to admit. Wrapped With Love by HILARY DUFF ($38/1.7oz @ amazon.com) is her second fragrance and this one is a floral that is so right now summertime. It contains notes of honeydew, blood orange, plum, violet, white lily, raspberry, vanilla bean, musk and white chocolate mousse. White chocolate mousse? Don’t let that scare you off, this one is through and through juicy and fruity. And did I mention that the scents lasts a pretty long time on the skin? Now we’re talkin’.
I love a gourmet shaving cream. There are not many out there so when I do come across one, it’s a must try. The latest one on the market? EVOLUTION OF SMOOTH or EOS Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream ($5.49/7oz @ amazon.com) and this one does double duty -- shaves and moisturizes. And I like that you don’t have to wet your legs before putting it on as it doesn’t lather. It’s a cream and contains aloe, shea butter, and antioxidant vitamins.
And how happening is the container? It’s easy to grab and hold onto and is recyclable so toss it in the blue bin when you’re finished. Available in three scents: Pomegranate Raspberry, Island Blue and Vanilla Bliss.
Purple is supposed to be hot for fall so get it on with this BOBBI BROWN Mauve Face Palette ($55 @ bobbibrown.com). It’s a nice alternative for day and looks great for all skin tones. Palette includes these NEW and exclusive shades: Navajo, Vintage, and Chocolate Mauve Eye Shadows; Mauve Blush; Dusty Mauve Creamy Lip Color; Mauve Lip Sheer; and Vintage Mauve Lip Color.

Here’s a new salon hair styling line coming to us from the UK, you’ll probably want to check out. AFFINAGE is meant to be all things to all people - body, volume, texture, sculpting, smoothing, shaping, protecting, conditioning, shine and finishing. No small feat! But they give us the Indigo line and say it encompasses all this by using the latest in technology.
The first one that has me wow’d is Indigo Tame It Smooth Control Creme ($26.30/2.7oz). Who doesn’t need to smooth strands and keep frizzies away? This one is made to be used on dry hair and just a small dab is good for the whole head. And I love the wicked cool blue packaging. Read more about this cool line @ affinage.com and pick this up @ sleekhair.com.
