Splurge or Save – What U Need This Summer

Who wants to wear a heavy lippie when the temps go up? Even most of my liquid lipsticks are taking a backseat this season for something with a light wash of color instead.

Here are two that give lips just a hint or ripeness while keeping them in tip top shape.


$$$ - LANCOME Juicy Shaker ($21 @, – these are super cute packaged pigment infused bi-phased lip oil. And the oils are good for conditioning the skin with a combo of apricot, rose de muscat, cranberry, peach and sweet almond oils. Shown here in #151 Cherry Symphony (red).

$ - BURT’S BEES Tinted Lip Balm ($5 @, – When my lips get a little dried out from wearing too many liquid lipsticks, I’ve been using this one in Rose to bring them back to life. Just a hint o’ color nestled inside some nourishing ingredients like shea butter and natural botanicals.

How to Really Get Your Makeup Done in 5 Minutes

The secret to getting your makeup look done and out the door in 5 minutes is to use multi-taskers like ones that are tinted. Since you don’t have to be as precise with tinted versions, time is on your side. Here are some in each category you should cover in order to at least look polished.  

First up is a Tinted Moisturizer or tinted BB Cream. They can be applied with your fingers or a sponge and not only are they usually available in quite a few shades but they give just a hint of tint so you don’t have to worry about overdoing it. And some even come with a built-in SPF, so you’re saving a few extra seconds on your routine right there! Here are some I recommend:  

1. PIXI BEAUTY H2O Skintint $24/1.18oz @

2. BEAUTY ADDICTS Mineral SheerTINT $32/1.25oz @

3. MAYBELLINE Dream Pure BB 8-IN-1 Beauty Balm Skin Clearing Perfector $8.99/1oz @ and <--- this is a good one too if you are prone to acne.

4. TOO FACED Tinted Beauty Balm SPF 20 $34/1.5oz @

Just remember that if you do choose one that doesn’t contain sunscreen, make sure you apply some before one of these.

Fall Product Standouts – Skin Care

Quite a few skin care products have come out and here are three I am giving my stamp of approval.

COLORESCIENCE PRO Illuminating Cleanser Mineral Powder Formula ($37.50/1.4oz @ – this powder looks like diamond dust and is great at not only cleansing and exfoliating the skin with Salicylic Acid but it also removes makeup. No tightness of the skin after using this one. Big recommendation.

BURT’S BEES Sensitive Night Cream ($15/1.8oz @ – part of the new Sensitive line they just put out, which includes a Cleanser, Moisturizing Cream and Eye Cream. These contain Cotton Extract to help minimize the effects of potential irritants, as well as aloe. So your skin is getting what it needs but gently.

PREVAGE Day Intensive Anti-aging Moisturizing Cream SPF 30 ($129/1.7oz) – Liz Arden’s Prevage brand has received rave reviews and they just came out with two new products. This day cream not only guards against UVA/UVB rays, but it also contains the powerful ingredient Idebenone to protect the skin from daily environmental assaults. The other new one is their Night Anti-aging Restorative Cream ($132/1.7oz). Get them both @

A Nose Delight from Burt's Bees

Burt's-Bees-Cranberry-&-Pomegranate-Sugar-Scrub BURT’S BEES Cranberry & Pomegranate Sugar Scrub sounds good enough to eat, doesn’t it? In a base of sugar is pomegranate oil, which is high in anti-oxidants and tiny cranberry seeds as well as olive oil, coconut oil, honey and Shea Butter, among others. I really feel like I’m getting back to nature when I use this one! And the price? $13 for 8oz. How can you go wrong?? (yup, two question marks).
