“Lip gloss, shadow and spritz…Oh, my!” Like many women, my appearance is important in helping to bring out the best ‘Me’. As various beauty and hair-care products grace the shelves, it can get confusing on what to buy. Let’s review some of the trend-setters making an appearance this season.
Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm Boasting of actual beeswax, this eco-friendly savior is sure to cherish lips while showcasing a light tint. The company is heightening awareness of the importance of bees in our environment by joining with the Pollinator Partnership (a non-profit organization encouraging the health of pollinating animals through research, preservation and education). So, why not purchase this fantastic product, which will benefit not only your lips, but also the entire world? (price: $7, available at: burtsbees.com).
Frizz-Ease: Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Crème This is a must-have in your medicine cabinet. Stop frizz and fly-away hairs on your head- synthetic and human-hair weaves included! That’s right ladies, don’t say goodbye to that wig. Simply apply to dry hair, and notice an immediate difference in dull, brittle hair and ends. This crème provides soft-to-the-touch smooth, hydrated hair with ultra-great shine (price: $5.99, available at: johnfrieda.com).
MAC Snow Globe Eye Shadows Can’t help but to admire the spectacular ‘snow-globe’ tops? Color your way to beauty with any of these 3 six-color arrangements: Cool (blues and purples), Warm (earth tones) or Sultry (shown above) (price: $38, available at: maccosmetics.com).
Sex in the City Love Perfume The scent of a bouquet of flowers always excites me! Sampling a bit of rose, Jasmine and lily (quite an array I know) is definitely a floral staple I am proud to wear. If you feel the same way then you have to give this one a try. Also, did I mention this spray comes in a set and is light on your clutch? (price: starting at $8, available at: amazon.com).
St Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish & Blackhead Control For some odd reason, numerous facial cleansers nowadays always seem to be too abrasive or too subtle. St. Ives, however, has out-done itself with the creation of this 100% natural product. With a gentle feel and 2 percent Salicylic acid- oil, dirt and dead skin cells become a thing of the past! Ingredients include cool apricots and crushed walnuts (price: $3.79, available at: cvs.com).
Nails Inc. Polish Heaven for me begins at Sephora. This fine retailer introduced the British Nails Inc. line over the past season. Here, you will find hues dubbed after English destinations, such as Gatwick (a matte red) or Piccadilly Circus (a deep crimson cerise). My favorite is Notting Hill Crystal Polish (pictured above) (price: $19.50).
Lush Bath Bombs Enjoy a bath experience like no other with a bomb! Wonderous balls and disks of scent that explode when dropped into warm water. Parent-approved or vegan, fizzed or none, the choice is endless (price: $3.95 to $6.95). Autumn arrives with the release of Bubbleroons (price: $5.95, available at: lushusa.com). I dearly hope that I have given you a new outlook on this season’s newest beauty nick-nacks. Try a few out for yourself, and don’t hesitate to tell a friend!
