Review: 5 Beauty Hacks With SEPHORA COLLECTION Fall 2014 Offerings! Kiss Me Balm, Metamorphosis Exfoliating Powder, Disposable Mascara Wands

Life hacks is a term I’ve pretended to know what it meant for years. (They’re basically just useful tips to make your life a little more simple, like how to get all the toothpaste out of the tube.) We love applying the vague term to beauty. So leave it to Sephora to get us through another season with some helpful items to solve our everyday cosmetic conundrums, like how to exfoliate off our dead skin cells (in a new way!) and the best way to keep our lips hydrated. Check out some of our favorite Sephora beauty hacks with their latest Fall 2014 offerings.

Dry, pale lips fixed! SEPHORA COLLECTION Kiss Me Balm: Who doesn’t need an new lip balm? This adorable dome-shaped applicator holds clear or easy-to-wear sheer shades that provide 4-hours of hydration with a soft scent. The formula is incredibly light yet emollient, leaving behind just the right amount of sheer color for a brightening but natural lip.

Dull, lifeless skin erased! SEPHORA COLLECTION Metamorphosis Exfoliating Powder: if you haven’t tried an exfoliating powder yet, now is the time to try it with this one (suitable for even the most sensitive skin types) from Sephora. Use a bit of water to mix the micro cellulose powder for gentle and effective manual exfoliation. Salicylic acid and papaya extract provide gentle chemical exfoliation for a radiant complexion. Use it alone or mix it in with your cleanser; after one use, 94% of women reported a radiant complexion after 21 days of use/twice a week.

Tired of boring color. SEPHORA COLLECTION Colorful 5 Eyeshadow Palette: Available in 10 color combinations, these palettes contain on-trend, specific shades that you can mix and match for a look that is ideal for day, night and anything in-between. N°03 Flirty To Intense Purple is the perfect collection of purple hues to help you keep rocking that Radiant Orchid Pantone Color of The Year.

Colorful lashes are so last season. SEPHORA COLLECTION Outrageous Volume – Dramatic Volume Mascara in Grey: We’ve all tried blue, purple, even green mascara! But now it’s time to tone things down for fall with a neutral yet intense color choice of gray. The thick brush loads lashes with enough pigment and volume for outstanding eyes. Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers, its unique formula also contains hyaluronic acid to moisturize lashes.

Achieve multiple lash looks without buying another mascara! SEPHORA COLLECTION Disposable Mascara Wands: Now, these disposable mascara wands are GENIUS and affordable. Twelve silicone applicators allow any mascara formula to create lashes with a lengthening, volumizing, curling or defining effect. This will not only give you unlimited eye lash looks for fall, but you’ll be able to save money on mascara this season.

Review, Ingredients: Olay Regenerist Luminous Facial Oil, Tone Perfecting Treatment For Brighter, Smoother Looking Skin

Olay Fall 2014 Facial Oil Review, Ingredients: Olay Regenerist Luminous Facial Oil, Tone Perfecting Treatment For Brighter, Smoother Looking Skin

According to Olay, the Olay Regenerist Luminous Facial Oil is “formulated with 9 luxurious enriched natural oils. Instantly hydrates to reveal luminous, healthy-looking skin.” It is designed to work with your skin to protect against moisture loss and preserve balance. It also conditions to smooth skin texture and even tone, and it brings a surge of hydration. Its all-natural blend is made of coconut, apricot kernel, grape seed extract, sunflower, evening primrose, sesame, jojoba, babassu and mimosa oils — and it’s dye-free.

Review, Ingredients: Olay Regenerist Luminous Facial Oil, Tone Perfecting Treatment For Brighter, Smoother Looking Skin

I tried this a few times, both morning and evening. First off, although it is touted as fragrance-free, the smell is heavenly! I detected the apricot most powerfully, but, altogether, the subtle mix was a delight to the senses. I found it better to use at night than during the day; it went on easily, absorbed quickly and left my skin fresh and dewy the next morning. But despite the many assertions about the lightweight, non-greasy formula, I found it too oily for daytime use and applying it made my complexion just a tad too shiny (unless you prefer it).  Also, I prefer a moisturizer with an SPF of 30 or more, and this has no SPF at all.  But as a new, before bed ritual, this one is a keeper!

Review, Ingredients: Olay Regenerist Luminous Facial Oil, Tone Perfecting Treatment For Brighter, Smoother Looking Skin

Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Treatment is said to, “reveal your most beautiful, pearlescent skin” and to fade “dark spots and discoloration in just four weeks.” It exfoliates the surface for skin that is “visibly smoother and brighter” and its “lightweight, non-greasy formula absorbs quickly, penetrating with a deep, long-lasting hydration.” It contains a significant amount of niacinamide (vitamin B3). I have some dark spots caused by sun damage and was curious to see how this product would work on them.

Olay Regenerist Instant Fix Exfoliate And Renew System, Wrinkle and Pore Vanisher, Total Effects Pore Minimizing CC Cream

I used it morning and evening, under whatever crèmes and makeup products I was using. True to its promise, the formula is lightweight and absorbs well. But did it work? Here’s the funny thing: For several weeks, it seemed like it did not do anything at all in terms of lightening dark spots. And then, one day about a month into the treatment, I saw a difference! So I guess it takes time to work, and I will continue to use it in the hope of seeing even better results. And like all the Olay products, it is exceedingly well-priced. A serum that fades dark spots for less than $30? Let me order a case right now!

Each year, in honor of national Génifique Day, hundreds of thousands of dollars in vital donations are raised for St. Jude. Each Génifique bottle sold helps the hospital find cures. It costs, $2 million a day to operate the hospital, so 21 bottles can pay for one night of family housing. Nine bottles could cover one blood count test. Five bottles can buy a day of meals. And just three bottles could pay for one bone marrow needle. It’s that easy to make a difference and your individual contribution can help in so many ways.

“I’m honored to be affiliated with a brand such as Lancôme that supports such a worthy and meaningful cause,” Lancôme Ambassadress Lupita Nyong’o states. “Growing up, I witnessed doctors in my own family work tirelessly to restore the health of people around them. I understand how important it is to support efforts to find cures for critical diseases, and I therefore proudly support the work that St. Jude is doing, especially in pediatric cancer, to help the children there lead better, healthier lives.”

1. Start by applying a quarter size of OSiS+ Session Label Silk Shine Cream on damp hair from roots to ends, then comb through for even distribution to create a deep side part.

2. To give hair lift and body, blow-dry with a round brush, elevating at the root and rolling hair under.

3. Working on the heavy side of the head — from the bottom up — spray hair with OSiS+ Sparkler; take horizontal sections and curl hair with a Sultra Bombshell 1.5-Inch Rod Curling Iron in a Figure 8 pattern.

4. Set hair with OSiS+ Session Label Flexible Hold Hairspray and brush through using a Mason Pearson brush.

5. Take the hair from the light side of the head and tuck it behind the ear and secure it with OSiS+ Session Label Flexible Hold Hairspray.
