Timelessness Is Next To Godliness

What makes a true classic is the timelessness that a product takes on. And scents are in a category all their own when it comes to the term. My Godfather gave me Ysl YVES SAINT LAURENT Paris Eau de Parfum ($88/2.5oz @ this past Christmas and I'm quite glad he did. I never really thought much seeing the oval glass bottle on many-a-beauty tables over the years but since this one turned me on I will now start asking why and run to try each I come across.
And for some reason this one really seems to bond with my skin. Hours later I can still subtly smell the warm floral and touch of wood and powder.
I take this as a sign that it should be a staple in my collection because it works with my chemistry. There’s also a Paris Perfumed Body Lotion ($44/6.6oz).

LUSH Your Day Away


This is one I could sit and smell all day. The Comforter ($8.45/7oz @ from LUSH is a sugary nose and skin softening delight without the calories. Simply break off a piece (each bar is good for a few baths) of the pink Swiss roll and plop under the running water in the tub. You’ll have mucho bubbles and a sweet bubble gum smelling treat!

A Little Color, A Little Protection

Belipguards_2 There are days when we are just looking for protection and a hint of color. And I love that companies are listening to what we women really need as there are quite a few products catering to just this now. I’m adding all 6 colors of BARE ESCENTUALS Junior Lip Guards SPF 15 ($36 @ to my purse. Each .17oz tube’s formula is mineral-based, contains antioxidants, vitamins A, C, and E and protects the delicate skin from the sun. And the colors? They go with everything: Stinson Beach: coral nude, Palm Beach: deep rose, Miami Beach: rose mauve, Pebble Beach: mauve taupe, Coco Beach: caramel brown, and Newport Beach: deep blackberry.

Add A Little Glow

I recently discovered Mystic Tanning and like to do it every couple of weeks but I sure do realize how much I need it when I don't have a chance to get over there. Physformulaspf20_2 Here are a few bronzers and highlighters that help me not look so sullen and pale until I can get over to the salon again.

Mac_3 From the Balloonacy collection is the High-Light Powder in Mellow Rave ($22 @ from MAC. It gives a sheer kiss of shimmer and get it quick because it's limited edition so hurry.

Now You're Gonna LOVE Your Look

Benefitsheerblusher There are some products out there where the packaging is so darn cute and unique that you want to keep it. And oh is this the case with BENEFIT COSMETICS' new Love Your Look collection. My pick of the litter is the Sheer Cream Blusher ($18 @ The formula is pretty thick so it doesn't come spilling out of the tube when you squeeze it. And I love that it's sheer so you can control the amount you put on and not look like you stepped out of the 80's, which I always seem to do. Available in 3 colors so sheer on!
