 The desire to look attractive is deeply rooted in people especially with the fairer sex. Everyone tries to give utmost care to the skin and rest of the face, neglecting the lips. The lips are devoid of sweat glands and they are repeatedly exposed and abused by irritants like environmental pollutants, food and drinks, weather and of course the tip of your tongue.

Pamper your lips and bring back that lusciousness by following these simple tips and tricks:

  • No licking, no picking:

Licking your lips can give you immense relief as it cools the lips down, but it makes the problem worse. Once the saliva evaporates, the lips become drier than before. The enzyme that clean mouth and digest food is harsh for your lips. Constant licking, biting and picking can cause cheilitis, an inflamed crusty patch, which forms at the corners of the mouth.

  • The perilous smooch:

Do not lock lips with someone inflicted by a sore or infection on the mouth or face. The American Academy Of Dermatology states that by age of 50, nearly 90% of Americans have been exposed to herpes simplex.

  • Know your cosmetics:

Use the right lip balm. Thinner lip balms and glosses evaporate quickly and will not provide long lasting moisturising effects. Opt for products with a base of beeswax, almond oil and paraffin. These seal in moisture and will not evaporate quickly. Use products devoid of fragrances and silicone, which saps moisture.

There is something wonderful about lips. Depending on what you put on them, they can keep your look casual or totally sophisticated. After college I have made a valiant effort to incorporate more lipstick and lip gloss into my everyday looks but I would be lying if I didn't say it was hard. When it comes to lipstick I finally settled on bold matte colors and I have a few favorite shades that I feel very confident in, but lip gloss for me has always been a tough one. I always had the uncanny ability to utilize the hair-getting-stuck-to-your-lips struggle and always felt like it either looked too sexy or like I was in middle school. Where was the middle ground lip gloss?! 
 
So needless to say, I was a little hesitant to try the G.M. Collin Lip Plumping Complex. I kind of already feel like I have some nice lips so did I really want the extra plumping? Turns out I do and this lip gloss is an everyday girl's dream come true. I tried the clear tint and rose tint and have used the rose almost everyday which has won a coveted spot in the inside pocket of my purse (the necessities pocket for the in-a-pinch situations). It's glossy without being too glossy and tinted without too much color, as if the rose tint heightened the natural coloring of my lips. As for the plumping, it definitely made my lips feel more full!

    LOVE that Fuchsia Aqua Eyes!

Experimenting with color is one of my favorite aspects of playing with new makeup and creating a fresh, new look. Recently, I had the opportunity to test eyeshadow from the PLAY Collection, the newest collection from beautyADDICTS. The shade is called Yacht Club, a shimmering navy hue, which includes super fine, crushed pearls to create a radiant look.

The first thing I noticed when using the eyeshadow was its smooth application. The first time I used the shadow I created a navy smokey eye using the deep navy shade blended with a deep bronze shadow and gray shadows. The blue really enhanced my eye color and gave a softer look that a gray/black smokey eye would create. The second time I used the shadow was for a day out on my friend’s boat. It seemed appropriate since the shadow is named “Yacht Club.” The long lasting formula made it from early morning to sunset. On this day, I dipped an eyeliner brush in water and then applied the shadow as eyeliner. The color came out much more vibrant thanks to the damp eyeliner brush and lasted all day.

beautyAddicts play eyeshadow yacht club 8.8.13

The full PLAY Collection from beautyADDICTS is comprised of four eyeshadows, two lipsticks, two lip glosses and one eye liner color. The color combinations are really lovely and look fantastic as a collection. The eyeshadow line also includes an Emerald shade, the Pantone color for 2013, which I am dying to try next. The full eyeshadow collection consists of: a green ("Emerald City"), a light teal ("Crème de Mint"), a vintage pink ("Eye Candy") and a dark blue/navy ("Yacht Club"). All of which can be purchased at www.beautyaddicts.com

Have fun playing with color and remember to experiment by using a damp brush and blending with other shadows!

For this week I have a great product from Primavera - the Moisturizing Lip Balm. This product is certified natural with 95% organic plant ingredients so you can feel good about putting this on your lips!

This balm has more of an oil consistency as opposed to a creamy lip balm but it absorbs well into your lips and seals in your lips natural moisture. It has a bit of a citrus scent but it's not overwhelming. It also has a little shine to it so it looks good on its own or over a lipstick. It conditioned and soothed my dry lips nicely and I didn't need to continuously reapply.

So if you're looking for a versatile, natural lip balm, Primavera is a great option! You can find Primavera Moisturizing Lip Balm for $14.00

Do you love all thing beauty? Are you a trend-hunter?? Do you like go out and buy products as soon as you hear about something new???

If you answered YES to any of those questions then you are going to be salivating to try out the cosmetic brand Palladio!!! 

When the box of these products came into the office I wanted to try them all! It was so hard having to part with them to let the other writers have something to write about...but I did get some VERY cool things!

022720213 Palladio rice powder translucent certified fabulous

First, Palladio Rice Powder in translucent looked like a common powder, but after looking into it the story behind it was beyond cool! The powder of rice has been used for centuries in the ancient art of Ayurveda, a holistic healing practice. Traditionally used to soothe inflamed acne and skin ulcerations. It has been used by Asian women in their facial makeup and to wash their skin since the 16th century. Rice products absorb excess oils, thus maintaining proper pH levels in the skin. This product sounded amazing and couldn't of come at a better time because I had been thinking I looked washed out and a little too pale...damn you winter! Even though this product is translucent it give me a natural skin color look that many other translucent products otherwise leave me looking chalky and vampire-ish. It felt smooth and was not drying at all...which is also a problem I have with powders...especially in the winter season. My makeup was perfectly set, even my skin tone and took away the shine...my T-zone stayed at bay all day too, no shine in sight! If your going to wear makeup of course the essential elements are that it looks natural and it is long lasting...check and check for Palladio!

1) TEETH 

A smile is a first impression that you want to be good one! Teeth whitening was something that used to involve the dentist and cost a lot of money. It later developed to be a whitening kit you could buy on your own, which also cost a lot of money. Then whitening strips came onto the scene and were pretty reasonably priced and seemingly easy. I remember when I first tried them they gave amazing results, but were hard to keep in place and my saliva was annoyingly making them move more so I would barely be able to talk or function normally! I would lay on the couch like I was getting a procedure done until the 30 minute or hour was up. 

Crest-Daughter-Breakthrough-Beauty-Awards-pg-full 3D whitestrips

FINALLY, I experienced the new Crest 3D Whitestrips Intensive Professional Effects...WITH Advanced Seal ™...which means no slipping! They have a variety of 30 minute ones that you do every day for 20 days, but I wanted a whiter smile faster, so I opted for the level 5 whitening power, 2 hour strips for 7 days. I was AMAZED but the advancement in these strips since I last used whitening strips! First of all, if you want a fast white smile the 2 hours is really not that long. I have an hour commute to work so there was half of the time and then once I got to work I just had them on while I was working for another hour. It was no problem and I didn't even realize I had them in, even my co-workers had no idea until I told them I was whitening my teeth, hah.  They stayed PERFECTLY in place once applied and they stayed exactly where I placed them for the full 2hours. I was impressed, not to mention I had no saliva problems, I could even drink water with them in! Now no one has an excuse not to whiten there teeth! The price in inexpensive and they always have coupons for them in the paper, online or even when you buy the product so you can buy more whitening products to help maintain and enhance your newly bright white smile :) 

*A few tips when using white strips:

  • It's best not to brush your teeth prior to applying
  • Make sure when applying you press the strips to mold in between your teeth to ensure all areas are covered 
  • After taking them off, there will be a gel residue still on your teeth, brush your teeth or dry brush the product off, then mouth wash if desired
  • Try not to drink or eat teeth staining liquids or foods for a few hours after the process 

2) LIPS

If you’ve read my profile, you know that I love ChapStick. It has been my go to essential since I was a little girl. My favorite of course is Cherry but I love trying other flavors and the Limited Edition Cupcake Creations flavors are like dessert for your lips only without the added calories.

If I could eat a velvet cupcake every day, I would. Especially red velvet with cream cheese frosting! Yum! Well Velvet Cupcake by ChapStick allows me to do just that and I can have as much as I want. The combination of cocoa and vanilla are so close to the real thing, it’s hard to keep it on my lips since I’m constantly licking it off!

02102013 certified fabulous red velvet cake chapstick
Another flavor that will keep you licking your lips is Cake Batter.   It reminds me of when my children were young begging for the mixing spoons while I made their birthday cake. It just smells exactly like vanilla cake batter.

Now let’s not forget that as yummy as these ChapStick flavors are, they still soothe, protect and help heal chapped lips which is why I love them in the first place.

So indulge in some calorie-free dessert for your lips, but more importantly, take care of yourself.

Kiss Me - I’ve just exfoliated……. I tried an exfoliating lip scrub by Philosophy called Kiss Me and it’s remarkable. This was my first experience with any exfoliating lip product and I’m so glad that it was with Kiss Me. This product is easy to use and the results are fantastic. The sugar crystals are gentle and effective in the removal of unwanted dead lip skin. I applied a dab of Kiss Me on my finger tips and massaged it in a circular motion on both my lower and upper lips. After the sugar crystals dissolved I gently washed my lips with a warm cloth. The results were stunning!! My lips did indeed appear softer and felt smoother.

But wait – there’s more!!

Philosophy has also created Kiss Me Tonight which is described as an “intense lip therapy”. I used Kiss me Tonight in combination with the Kiss Me exfoliator. The fragrance of Kiss Me Tonight is truly delightful. I have a problem with dry cracked lips so I use Kiss Me Tonight in both the morning and evenings. Kiss Me Tonight works well keeping my lips looking good and feeling great.

The combination of Kiss Me and Kiss Me Tonight provides wonderful a “spa” treatment for your lips.

Remember take time to enjoy life!

I can’t live without my lip balms and chap stick and I use them every day… frequently. But I don’t often wear lipstick or lip gloss because they tend to be too drying. Well I was pleasantly surprised that Lolade Wet Lips not only didn't make my lips feel dry but made them feel fabulously soft and shiny.

I really like the fact that I don't feel the gloss too heavy on my lips.  It feels natural and sits on my lips quite nicely. My favorite color is Novelty, and as the name implies, the color is quite "unique".  It is just the right shade for my olive skin tone. It’s a medium rose with a touch of natural beige and the best part, the pearls of shimmer. It leaves the lips with a luxurious shine that lasts for hours and the small tip brush is perfect for applying evenly.

So get yourself some Wet Lips by Lolade, but more importantly, take care of yourself.

Happy Wednesday Fabulous Readers!

Oddly enough I have the pleasure to write to you all on my birthday! So I figured why not tell you guys about a "birthday cake" kind of sweet 5 minute makeover :) 

eye-make-up-inspiration

 I most often play the role of dark and mysterious because I have dark hair and love dark eye makeup so it's just easy for me to fit into that mode. This is great for night looks when I go to events or meet friends for a night on the town, but sometimes us "night owls" need a little sunshine. Sure there is something intriguing and sexy about a dark and mysterious woman, but I also find that men love "the girl next door", innocently sweet look too. Since it's my birthday, I decided why not have my cake and eat it too?? Today I breakdown how to get the "I'm an angel" makeup look in 5 minutes. 

A trend that I loved seeing in 2012 was the natural makeup looks and bold blush and/or lips. Not only did it look romantic but it barely took any time to create! All you need to do is apply your foundation as usually, or sweep a powder all over your face (if you are lucky enough to have flawless skin). Add a touch of white shadow (matte or shimmer) to your inner eye corners and below your eyebrows on the brow-bone. If you want a little more on the eyes (don't do too much!) sweep a light brown (or any neutral shade) on lid and blend. Apply a few coats of lengthening mascara.

Hello Fabulous Readers!

I hope you all had a good holiday and the chaos is over for you. Maybe some of still have family to visit or things to return, but hopefully you find some time to relax and get ready for the new year! 

2012 was a very exciting time for fashion and cosmetics and even me, the makeup freak, was surprised with what this year brought and it felt like a whole new adventure! We saw a lot of color for Spring and Summer and bold lips were my trend obsession, followed by dramatic rosy cheeks with natural makeup and "Pop of Color" for eye makeup.

obsessive-compulsive-cosmetics-loose-colour-concentrates-glisten

Now my term "Pop of Color" has now been a staple in my everyday makeup and even inspired a lot of my fashion. I have so many Pop of Color ideas I think I have to make YouTube episodes on my makeup tutorials just to show you :) Anyway, I have done major experimenting with eye color cosmetics and I have found that I can pretty much wear any color...the right way. Warmer colors are not my ideal makeup match but I use it minimally when I match warm clothing colors I am wearing. For example, if I am wearing a melon color shirt I will do my makeup mostly natural except for my bottom lid, I will line the waterline with a black liner. After I take my warm, coral colored eye shadow from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics: BURNING TRUE CORAL SHIMMER and sweep it under the liner. If I want it to show up bolder I simply wet the tiny shadow brush and dip it in the shadow and apply.
