Fall in Love.

It is now less than a week until Valentines Day, and it is time to start dropping hints, ladies.  Here are a few ideas to hint about, and they all are from Philosophy's Falling in Love Collection. Both the name and the scent exude romance.


Here is a two piece gift set which contains an 8 oz. bottle of Philosophy's 3-in-1 shampoo, bubble bath and shower gel, along with a 2 oz. bottle of Falling in Love perfume spray.

Lancôme’s Pout-à-Porter in Proenza Pink.

Attention Lancôme devotees! The waiting list for their newest Lancôme’s Pout-à-Porter lipstick shade in Proenza Pink is now open.

ProenzaPack.jpgCall any of the Lancome boutiques or the Lancome counters at Bergdorf Goodman or your local Neiman Marcus to get on a waiting list now.

Behnaz, the original shade in the Pout-à-Porter series, was produced in an ultra-limited-edition quantity and sold only at the four Lancôme boutiques in the U.S. The Behnaz shade, a universally flattering red, sold out via waiting list even before it hit counters and was spotted on eBay selling for $103.50 (it retailed for $25.00).

To ensure that all the Proenza Pink fans are able to get their hands on the shade, it has been produced in a greater quantity than Behnaz (yet still limited edition!).

Anti-Aging Experiment: Dr. Brandt's Beauty Boosters

aa_logo_small.jpgDr. Brandt is a famous celebrity dermatologist. He has been featured on Oprah, Extreme Makeover, and Live with Regis and Kelly. So when he came out with his line of anti-aging lotions and potions, I could not wait to try them

He has a set of products called the Beauty Boosters, and are happy to share our results from our experiment. Here is who gave it a try: Carly - 20 something, and Cindi - 30 something.

*** Please note that we only tested the two skin care products from the set, not the water booster.

From the Dr. Brandt Skincare website, a description of two of the products in this set:

"lineless eye cream - madonna doesn’t leave home without this anti-wrinkle, anti- puffiness and anti-oxidant formulation for a younger looking eye contour. soothing and firming effects are provided by nourishing vitamins, white tea and botanicals. using ring finger, apply am and pm to bone area of eye in contour - clockwise motion from the outside corner of the eye inward.

     lineless cream with age inhibitor complex - the ultimate moisturizer to maintain a youthful and healthy appearance preventing the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. the age-inhibitor complex contains a combination of ingredients to help slow down the aging process. apply am or pm after cleansing and toning.

Our thoughts while using:

  • Love the pump in the eye cream - it pumps out the perfect amount every time
  • Lineless Cream looks a bit like a gelled silly putty
  • If you have very dry skin, you may need an additional moisturizer
  • Apply both products two times a day for best results
