eyes Review, Swatches: Revlon Boho Chic Fall 2014 Collection - PhotoReady Primer, Shadow + Sparkle, Luxe Creme Eyeshadow, Colorstay EyeLiner, Ultimate Suede Lipstick

‘Tis the season for pumpkin spice lattes and UGG boots! So if you’re ready for some hot new fall makeup, Revlon’s Boho Chic Fall 2014 Collection, created by the brand’s Global Artistic Director Gucci Westman, gives you that seasonal finish without sacrificing your budget. From smoldering eyeshadows to bulletproof lip shades, check out my favorite offerings of the moment that will help you channel your inner French mystique.

When it comes to eye makeup, my routine is bland as it gets. I’ve always been a nude shadow and cat-eye kind of gal, but thankfully Revlon’s bold and sultry colors help me get out of my beauty rut fast. To charge up my usual cat-eye, I started with the Revlon PhotoReady Primer, Shadow + Sparkle in the Electric to get that blue-gray base. However, if you still prefer slightly different shades, this multitasking palette has 5 different shades to choose from.

Want a more highly-pigmented effect? I love the Revlon Luxe Creme Eyeshadow in Street Style, as it gives your peepers a metallic green color that’s one of a kind. Now for the winged-out effect, the Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner lines my eyes with a long-lasting formula in an ocean blue shade.

For the lippies, I love the matte finish I get from using Revlon Color Stay Ultimate Suede Lipstick. To build up your color even more, the Revlon ColorStay Lip Liner gives your lips that fuller, more-defined appearance in a snap.

Review, Ingredients: Le Mieux Moisture Infusion Mask Adds A Natural Glow To Skin With Vitamin C, Peptides, Marine Collagen

Pinterest

moisture-infusion-mask-800x800 Review, Ingredients: Le Mieux Moisture Infusion Mask Adds A Natural Glow To Skin With Vitamin C, Peptides, Marine Collagen
We’ve got your Friday night face mask! The Le Mieux Moisture Infusion Mask aims to refresh skin while hydrating and soothing dry, sensitive and stressed skin. It also claims to brighten dull complexions and minimizes the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles. The mask contains vitamin C, anti-aging peptides, 8 botanical extracts and marine collagen, which stimulates collagen synthesis and promotes smooth, radiant skin.

Best New Overnight Sleeping Masks: Clark’s Botanicals Deep Moisture, NUDE Advanced Renewal Overnight Repair

These masks are ideal for use after peels or microdermabrasion procedures, and can be used on all skin types! Inside of the box comes 4 individually wrapped masks that are ready to use. All you have to do is open the mask and peel off the paper. There are pre-made slits on the mask for your eyes, nostrils and mouth. I found that the eye slits were slightly too small for my eyes, so I gently tore a bigger hole near the eyes for a quick fix! I also found it a little awkward to speak or smile with the mask on (hence the strange photograph of myself). But of course… normally, you don’t photograph yourself with a mask on!

We’re smiling on the inside!

You are to wear the mask for 15-20 minutes. Afterward, you simply remove the mask from your face and discard. You do not rinse your face afterwards. I found these masks to be very effective at moisturizing my skin. Right out of the individual packaging, these masks are very damp with serum. The scent is pleasant though not overpowering. For reference, I have acne-prone, oily skin. The mask did not irritate or cause any additional breakouts for me. After
wearing the mask for 20-minutes, I removed it and gently massaged the remainder of the serum-like product into my skin. My skin was still very wet, so I left it alone for an additional 5-10 minutes until it was fully absorbed. After that, I was able to apply my makeup and go about the rest of my day.

Bausch + Lomb THERA°PEARL® Eye Mask How To Treat/Relieve Common Ailments: Dryness, Puffy Eyes, Headaches, Sinus Discomfort

Overall, I enjoyed my experience with these masks. I do not have excessively dry skin or any dry patches whatsoever. However, I can imagine that this product would do wonders for someone who suffers from those types of skin conditions. I did notice that my skin seemed to have a little extra glow to it. I cannot attest to the minimization of lines and wrinkles, because I have not used this product long enough to comment on that. But so far, I really do enjoy these masks! The Le Mieux Moisture Infusion Mask contains 4 individually wrapped masks and can be purchased for $25 from www.myskincarebox.com or at your local estheticians’ offices.

Skincare Review, Ingredients: Neova Copper Moisture Mask – How Do Copper Peptides Promote Skin Health, Hydration, Reduce Wrinkles?

Pinterest

large_copper_moisture_mask Skincare Review, Ingredients: Neova Copper Moisture Mask - How Do Copper Peptides Promote Skin Health, Hydration, Reduce Wrinkles?
According to Neova, the NEW! Copper Moisture Mask works by “penetrating Copper Peptide therapy [is] designed for in-office facial treatments,” which makes it sound like it is for professional rather than home use. Neova claims the mask, “replenishes depleted moisture with potent Copper Peptide Complex, diminishing visible signs of fine lines and wrinkles and leaving skin feeling smooth and soft.”
 
More specifically, it is said to supply the skin with a powerful dose of copper micronutrition, also hydrating and improving skin’s texture and appearance, as well as diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The key ingredient is a Copper Peptide Complex®, which is also known as Bis (Tripeptide-1) Copper Acetate, that uses the body’s natural protective carrier to deliver proprietary copper peptides — an essential micronutrient for skin health. For maximum restorative benefits, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose is said to aid in adding moisture to the skin.

Pond’s Institute Iluminage Skin Rejuvenating Pillowcase With Copper Oxide – Fight Fine Lines, Wrinkles While You Sleep

I did try this at home. The mask is a clear, cooling gel that I spread on my (cleansed) face and let dry for about 10-20 minutes. Then, I washed it off with warm water. The application felt very pleasant and invigorating; it was easy enough to remove in a warm shower. I followed up with my usual nighttime moisture routine. In the morning, my skin looked and felt great — so soft, smooth and supple. This is an excellent product and I will be using it 2-3 times a week in the future! For more info., go to: www.neova.com.

Clients|Kiehl's Beauty News Preview: Kiehl’s Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion Celebrates 50th Anniversary With New Bottle Design -- Andy Warhol's Favorite Toner!

To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Kiehl’s Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion, the 163-year-old skincare company unveils a new limited-edition bottle inspired by one of the formula’s most famous fans.

“It’s always been a point of pride for Kiehl’s that one of our most iconic formulas, Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion, was beloved by one of the world’s most iconic artists. As we celebrate the anniversary of one of our most enduring formulas, we also wanted to celebrate our long relationship with the art world, by inviting one of Warhol’s most frequent collaborators to partner with us,” said Chris Salgardo, President, Kiehl’s US. “We’re incredibly honored that Christopher Makos joined us for the celebration and designed the anniversary label for Blue Herbal.”

Since debuting in the early ‘60s, “the blue stuff,” as it’s known by loyal fans, has reached product icon status, generated legions of loyal celebrity fans, including Andy Warhol. To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion, Kiehl’s introduces a limited-edition bottle designed by renowned photographer and Andy’s friend, Christopher Makos, who captured Warhol’s essence in frequent portraits through the years.

Says Makos, about the collaboration, Andy Warhol related successful art to successful business. Kiehl’s is great to work with because they ‘get it’. I’m happy because when people ask me what I’m doing I can say, ‘I’m in cosmetics.’”

The limited-edition bottle features 18 of Christopher Makos’ iconic photos, including images that depict an homage to New York City. Since the formula first debuted in the early ‘60s, Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion has sold nearly 900 thousand bottles in the last 5 years and even found a home in the permanent archives of The Smithsonian National Museum of American History.

Bottle Design

The curved glass bottle reveals the sky-blue liquid within. Highlighted with white daisies, it’s topped off with a silver cap adorned with the same white floral motif and gold daisy accents.

Notes

This is a young, feminine, airy, fruity, fresh floral fragrance that is delicate yet delectable. It evokes days of summer — free-spirited and lively with hints of elegance and mystery!

The initial impression of blackberry, fresh grapefruit and succulent pear imparts a youthful vibrancy, which warms as notes of jasmine, exotic lychee and blue wisteria emerge in the heart of the fragrance. The fragrance further reveals a medley of white woods, musks and creamy coconut water to make this one of the more distinctive fragrance offerings this season.
