My seven year old LOVES makeup. I hesitate, of course, to let her play with makeup for a number of reasons. Reason #1 being she typically looks like a clown (or a street walker) when she plays with any of the toy makeup on the market today. Then we came across My Besties Pink Eye Doll Chatter & Kit Full of Kisses Hello Kissy Lip Gloss. These 2 kits are super cute, and perfect for kids and grownups alike! My Besties Pink Eye Doll Chatter is super cool because it is a collection of 3 colors, “Twitter the Glitter, a peachy gold shimmery color, “Boys and Berry”, a pretty pink shimmer and “Confetti Confessions” a bright purple shimmer.

eye doll chatter both productsAll 3 colors are fun without being too loud. Also included in this pretty kit are three shimmers, which are scented! Super fun for the kiddos, she found the scented shimmers to be extremely cool. You get three scents “Bubble Gum” (my daughter’s fav), “Pomegranate” and “Romance”. All three impart a pretty shimmer to you lids, and are fun to mix and match with the three colors. Possibilities are endless!

 

Magic Minerals new resized picture
My next favorite kit for the month of July is Magic Minerals by Jerome Alexander with Extended Lash Mascara. I have always been a fan of mineral powder makeup, Jerome Alexander’s Magic Minerals are mineral powders on steroids! Not only do these mineral powders provide the coverage of a mineral powder, it also has the added benefit of concealer as well. I notices that redness and discoloration blended away with the sweep of the included powder brush. This mineral powder is hypoallergenic, contains natural SPF boosters, is fragrance free and lasts and lasts (up to 12 hours). With built in color correctors, skin imperfections are immediately hidden. Jerome Alexander’s Extended Lash Mascara (in black) is a superior product as well. I love the mascara wand, it is extremely high quality, and allows the mascara to sweep on clump free. My lashes were extended, no clumps, and no smudging. Two great products in one amazing kit!!

It's cold outside, we already turned the clocks back, I finally turned my heat on and I even started wearing my winter coat *cry*! Just because we are layering up our clothing it doesn't mean we have to start (or continue to) layer our makeup.

To me, makeup is meant to enhance your natural beauty and hide imperfections so you feel more confident in your skin. I have been using foundation since I started high school and I have had MANY trial and errors with foundations. It's frustrating and crushes my confidence when someone points out that my foundation doesn't match my skin or is not blended in well enough. I am SO thankful for the latest developments in the foundation world and the growing trend of lightening the face load with lighter formulas that still provide coverage! 

I was completely into the BB Cream phase and loved it. When the CC Cream craze started, I honestly didn't understand the hype, nor know what the difference was. All I know is BB means Blemish Balm and CC means Color Correct. My confliction of which to choose is now over since I have tried the new Lumene CC Cream!

The Lumene Color Correcting Cream is a unique 6-in-1 foundation that is light, yet it provides amazing coverage! It spreads evenly, following all contours of the skin and smooths out uneven skin color and redness. After applied, it leaves skin with a semi-matte, flawless and even-looking finish. My skin felt fresh and light, and the CC cream stayed on all day!

I spend a fair amount of time outside during the winter and when it’s really cold and dry, my overly 03232013 Sensitive Touch 5min SOS Cream certified fabuloussensitive skin (especially my cheeks) gets irritated, red & blotchy. Finally a relief cream that instantly restores my skin in 5 minutes! Lumene Sensitive Touch SOS Intense Cream is clinically proven to relieve skin irritation with Skin Calming Technology™  while moisturizing and conditioning to help the skin become more resistant to the elements.

Here’s how it works:

This incredibly rich cream includes linseed (or flax seed) extract and Pro Vitamin B5 that contains
skin-conditioning and healing properties that restore, hydrate and strengthen the skin’s elasticity.

Lumene Sensitive Touch SOS Intense Cream is fragrance free which I greatly appreciate and although thick and rich, it does not feel heavy nor greasy. I use it on my elbows and lips too! It is by far, the best relief cream I have used.

So remember to take care of your dry, irritated skin, but more importantly, take care of yourself.

I have been noticing more and more BB creams in beauty stores as well as local Targets and CVS’s. There are many options making it the perfect time to try some out! I’ve spent some time using 03182013 Lumene Vitamin C Heleyttava BB Cream Certified FabulousLumene Illuminating Anti-Age BB Cream with SPF 20 from Finland. As a BB cream it accomplishes multiple things, “moisturizes, provides sun protection, covers imperfections and at the same time acts as a nude, natural make up.” I found that the BB Cream goes on smoothly, blends in well with my skin, and is quite moisturizing even on it’s own. However if you feel that your skin needs more hydration, you can use it in combination with your everyday moisturizer. The Lumene BB cream provides more coverage than I was expecting, but hydrates while allowing for a lighter color and weight than a traditional foundation. Also, the Lumene BB Cream has Vitamin C and arctic cloudberry to brighten the skin, and antioxidants protect the skin. With this you can get your skincare and makeup in one step, which is great for those of us who are always running late! The less I have to do in the morning the better!

So with Lumene Illuminating Anti-Age BB Cream SPF 20 at $34.99 on Amazon, high-low options include:

Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB SPF 20 at $135.00

Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream at $12.99
