The Ultimate in Luxury!

Synonymous with skin care miracles and ultimate luxury, the legendary Crème de la Mer has inspired a devoted following. And BCA Month has inspired them to create a special pink box.

bca_lamer.jpgIf you don't know too much about Crème de la Mer, it is a very "special" creation from NASA scientist Dr. Max Huber. It is coined the "Miracle Broth"  and has a devoted cult-like following. The price? 1 oz. $110 (not available in BCA packaging), 2 oz. $195, or the ultimate in luxury 16.5 oz. for $1200. 
 
A few years ago, I was lucky enough to have a special batch made up just for moi. Now, this was when there was only Crème de la Mer, no other special treatment products that are currently in the line.  It was a small sample, but just enough for a few weeks to try it out.  I remember it being too rich for my entire face, but I really liked it around my eye area.

Being older (and much drier - skin wise) with a few lines around my eyes, I wonder how I would feel about it now. I must admit that I am intrigued by the eye balm, and may just have to see if there are samples available.

All in all, I think that if you were ever in the market for Crème de la Mer, now is the time to purchase where a bit of the money will do some good. La Mer will donate $25,000 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

A Racy Red Lip.

lipstick_red.jpgGlam has a wonderful little bit about perfecting the Red Lip.

And because I have the worst time finding the perfect Red lipstick, I was glad to have found a few of their suggestions. I tend to go toward a pink-red or red-berry, or even a brown-red. But I am looking for a true red that looks good on pale skin. You know, dramatic!

Let us know if you have a great red lipstick or lipgloss you swear by.

Perfectly Pink.

What a better time for a perfectly blended blush to help give you perfect pink cheeks. Thanks to LORAC, you will get the pinkiest of pink cheeks from their latest blush entry Perfectly Pink - a blush created for BCA month.

I picked this pretty little diddy up last weekend at Sephora and I am giving it to my sister for Christmas. It is beautiful, and so very worthy of gift giving.

It retails for $25, and proceeds from the sale of Perfectly Pink go to the National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund.
