Elizabeth Arden Anti-Aging Night Cream.

Once in a while an innovation blows me away. From the packaging to the ingredients, my feelings for this new night cream from Elizabeth Arden's PREVAGE line run deep. With the Elizabeth Arden PREVAGE Anti-Aging Night Cream, my skin has taken on a new meaning. A look of refinement, luminosity and fresh looking. Amazing.

A New Favorite Mascara: Lancome High Definicils.

When it comes to mascara, I will be the first to admit that I am picky. I love trying new mascaras, but seem to always go back to my all-time favorite and must-have mascaras: Tarte's Lights, Camera, Lashes!; MAC's Plush Lash; L'Oreal's Voluminous; and Prescriptives Here to Stay. I am adding another one to my favorite and must-have list. This is Lancome's new High Definicils.

With a soft, rubberized brush that feels almost flimsy, the application of Lancome High Definicils Mascara could not be any smoother. The brush bends slightly as it moves up through my lashes making them ultra long and defined. Beautiful!

“The best way to apply this mascara is to lift the lashes right at the base of the lash line using the brush, and comb through,” advises National Artistic Director Ross Burton. “This allows for the brush to better grip the lashes for a more fanned look.”

High Definicils comes in two shades, black and brown. It is available now for $23 (just launched) at your favorite Lancome counter, one of the Lancome Boutiques and at lancome-usa.com of course, as well.
