GIVEAWAY/Discount Promo Code: Vincent Longo Goes Gluten-Free! Water Canvas™ Crème-to-Powder Foundation #VLBeauty Sponsored

You may have seen the Vincent Longo brand around for quite some time. And rightfully so. Vincent Longo Cosmetics is the beauty and fashion insider’s makeup brand of choice. Launching a premiere color collection back in 1995 and conceiving and formulating groundbreaking originals, like the Water Canvas™Crème-to-Powder Foundation — bearing its rightful place in numerous best of beauty awards.

Vincent Longo Cosmetics has been appearing in fashion magazines and beauty sites for years, including Vogue, Allure, Refinery 29 and Harper’s Bazaar.

Just take 2014 for example. After years of the brand’s steady and dominant claim in the beauty world, Vincent Longo remains one of the most coveted beauty brands around. Total Beauty’s 5th Annual Editors’ Picks winner for Best Eyeliner went to Vincent Longo Creme Gel Liner for its longevity and quick-drying formula that stays put. And just recently, Vincent Longo was featured in the May 2014 issue of Cosmopolitan, touting the Vincent Longo Body Brush as the perfect tool to apply your bronzer from head to toe.

And after all this time, Vincent Longo still improves on ingenuity and passion by reformulating some of its cult-favorite products. Now some of your favorite Vincent Longo items are GLUTEN-FREE! Even those who have an allergy to gluten can experience harmful side effects just by allowing it to touch their skin or unknowingly digest it when wearing lipstick!

The reformulation of the Lip & Cheek Gel Stain sparked a notion of making the Volume Plus Mascara, Creme Gel Liner and Silk Velour Lipstick gluten-free as well. A full makeup application that is both glamorous and accessible to millions of gluten and non-gluten sufferers alike!

But it doesn’t stop there! Vincent Longo is best known for his groundbreaking patented technology of Water Solid Polymers, which are half the size of normal polymers found in many other cosmetics. 75% of Microwater ™ is contained in an ultra-lightweight, refreshing wet/solid texture that is the Water Canvas™Crème-to-Powder Foundation.

But before that, the Water Canvas Base Primer minimizes the appearance of pores and imperfections with bistorta and licorice roots, while vitamin E enriches skin and evens texture with this oil- and fragrance-free formula. A pop of sheer color with the Water Canvas™ Blush adds just the right amount of natural-looking pigment for a picture-perfect complexion. Just see for yourself below the Before/After photos of using the products found in the Water Canvas™ family.

Review, Ingredients: Estée Lauder Clear Difference Advanced & Targeted Blemish Serum Treatment, Complexion Perfecting BB Creme: Best At Preventing Acne Breakouts

When I think of Estée Lauder, one of the last things that come to mind is an acne-fighting line. The Serum Experts — the scientists who have made all of Estée Lauder’s best-selling anti-aging and brightening serums — have created a skincare line to help women fight the acne cycle at the source! The Clear Difference line includes a serum, targeted treatment and BB Creme to get your complexion clear and smooth.

“Blemishes aren’t just for teenagers – preventing breakouts is a top concern for women today,” says Dr. Nadine Pernodet, Vice President, Basic Science Research – R&D, The Estée Lauder Companies. “This new system is specifically designed to help stop the cycle of breakouts and significantly reduce the look of blemishes and pores.”

The NEW Triple Action Clarity Technology includes a special blend of salicylic acid, glucosamine (a natural and proven sugar-derived skin refiner) and laminaria saccharina (a natural marine extract that helps control oil), which works in three ways to stop the breakout cycle, refine and calm the skin and control excess oil and refine the look of pores.

A serum for acne? Yup! The skin-refinishing Advanced Blemish Treatment efficiently discourages blemishes and excess shine, while also helping to reduce the look of pores. This non-drying acne medication also hydrates skin without irritating or clogging pores. The silky, fluid formula features a lightly scented, aromatic botanical blend featuring cool mint notes of peppermint and eucalyptus. It isn’t heavy at all and feels great on freshly toned skin.

NEW Clear Difference Targeted Blemish Treatment is formulated with the highest concentration of Triple Action Clarity Technology. It comes in a syringe-looking applicator with a roller ball tip to apply the clear acne medication. You simply click the end to push up an appropriate amount of topical medication for a single application. It feels cooling once on the skin and features a purifying aromatic blend of cool, fresh peppermint and eucalyptus.

This fast-acting treatment fights existing blemishes, penetrating fast to rapidly reduce the size of blemishes while minimizing redness and irritation. Applied at the first sign of a flare up, this targeted treatment will discourage blemishes from getting bigger so skin looks smooth. The acne treatment is so lightweight it can even be worn under makeup. I have to say, my blemishes did appear to look “smaller” and shrunk in size after a few days. In just one day, Clear Difference Targeted Blemish Treatment provides a 22% reduction in active blemishes.

The NEW Clear Difference Complexion Perfecting BB Creme SPF 35 hydrates, protects, perfects, calms and soothes skin. I just love applying a makeup that is actually beneficial in the fight against acne! It perfectly complements Clear Difference anti-blemish treatments to even out skintone, while providing hydration and oil-control.

Color-correcting pigments instantly neutralize redness and help conceal blemish marks, pores and flaws while soothing ingredients also help reduce the look of redness and irritation. Available in 3 semi-sheer shades that flatter a wide range of skintones – Light, Medium and Medium Deep – skin is left looking soft, clear and naturally beautiful. At first, I thought the Light shade was a bit too yellow, but it actually blended down to a neutral finish to counteract noticeable hyperpigmentation and present acne.

2nd Week Skincare Growth Factor Challenge Report: Regenica® Overnight Repair Fades Away Acne Marks, Adds Glow To Skin

2nd Week Skincare Growth Factor Challenge Report: Regenica Overnight Repair Fades Away Acne Marks, Adds Glow To Skin

Last time I checked in, I was just getting started with the Growth Factor Challenge. So now that I’ve really gotten into using both the Regenica® Overnight Repair and SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum® products, it’s time to see how these babies are transforming my skin (see above; second week in).

See Week 1 Results:

The Skincare Growth Factor Challenge! SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum, Regenica® Advanced Rejuvenation Overnight Repair

To start, I was instructed to first use the Regenica® Overnight Repair for one week, as it reverses skin aging with advanced multipotent growth factors, which signal skin cells to repair the core causes of wrinkles. Now let’s face it, any wrinkle-busting product is good by me, so I was more than thrilled to slather on this special product onto my face, neck and decolletage right before bedtime.

2nd Week Skincare Growth Factor Challenge Report: Regenica Overnight Repair Fades Away Acne Marks, Adds Glow To Skin

Upon application, my skin instantly slurped this lightweight cream up, so I didn’t have to worry about lingering product or a greasy residue left on my face. Yes, it took a few days to see results, but I can assure you that this skincare must-have totally moisturized my skin, helped fade away some acne scars and gave my complexion a more rejuvenated glow.

Although wrinkles aren’t much of a concern for twenty-somethings like myself, I can say this product has made my skin feel a lot tighter and more toned with continued use. Even the lines under my eyes firmed up a little bit. And with a creamy-smooth texture, and neutral-calming scent, it’s been a real treat to use this goodie every night. Plus, this formula doesn’t clog your pores at all, so you don’t have to worry about unwanted breakouts or blackheads on the way. It’s just apply, sleep and go with this easy-to-use product.

After my week-trial with Regenica®, I was asked to start using the TNS Essential Serum® for one week as well. Designed to enhance skintone and texture for an overall youthful-looking appearance, I will be using this blendable dual-formula after cleansing right before bedtime to see how it works.

It’s important for me not to start using any new makeup or skincare products while using any of the products during the challenge, so, like Regenica®, I’ll be applying it to my face, neck and decolletage areas to compare the results. Stay tuned for the next piece, concluding my overall thoughts on both anti-aging products.

Review, Swatches: Clarins Golden Glow Booster, Complexion Base, Opalescence Face & Blush Powder, Multi-Blush Cream

Glow on this spring (and into summer) with a little help from Clarins. The brand’s latest collection possesses its exclusive Light Optimizing⁺ Complex to add some natural-looking radiance without even trying hard. Find out in 4 easy steps how to fake the glow in seconds, while also doing some good for your skin.

Review, Swatches: Clarins Golden Glow Booster, Complexion Base, Opalescence Face & Blush Powder, Multi-Blush Cream

One of the most exciting and innovative bronzing products this year has to go to the Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster — a self-tanner that YOU control and add to your favorite moisturizer. Now you don’t have to worry about breaking out, clogging up pores or giving up your favorite lotion for a seasonal facial self-tanner. This booster lets you create the intensity of your facial tan. Simply add the Glow Booster (1-3 drops) to your moisturizer (it should never be used alone) and apply like you would your cream every day in the morning. Its 99.8% natural formula promotes perfectly natural, even, gradual results.

Best Serums For Wrinkles, Dark Spots 2013: All Skin Types + Clarins Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate

Once you’ve mastered your perfect sun-kissed complexion, it’s time for your base! The NEW Clarins Radiance Boosting Complexion Base comes in 2 shades: Rose (an illuminating brightener) and Champagne (a neutral base to conceal redness). Both contain Clarin’s NEW High-Lumitech Complex, which brightens the complexion and corrects imperfections. Makeup not only stays on longer, but skin looks and becomes instantly radiant and luminous. Go lighter on your morning moisturizer, since these primers contain hydrating and soothing moisture-rich katafray bark extract without weighing down skin.

Review, Swatches: Clarins Golden Glow Booster, Complexion Base, Opalescence Face & Blush Powder, Multi-Blush Cream
Add some contour and illuminating color to your cheeks with the Clarins Limited Edition Opalescence Face & Blush Powder. Three shades, suitable for all skin tones — Pinkish Beige, Coral and Brown — warm and illuminate the complexion, making it ideal for a touch-of-tan effect. The blush/bronzer not only adds a light layer of contour, but it also mattifies the skin for a refreshed complexion.

Review, Swatches: Clarins Golden Glow Booster, Complexion Base, Opalescence Face & Blush Powder, Multi-Blush Cream
The last step to completing your perfectly-glowing Clarins complexion is by adding a touch of transparent color to your cheeks. Multi-Blush Cream Blush is available in 4 punchy shades: 01 Peach, 02 Candy, 03 Grenadine and 04 Rosewood. Don’t let the intensity of the colors mislead you — they go on incredibly sheer, leaving behind a breathable, dewy finish that is both natural and uplifting for your complexion. A blend of rose, mimosa and sunflower waxes moisturize skin as well, so you may not want to take them off… like ever.
