Just Maybe!

In getting ready for a full feature on scented bath and body products, I could not wait to share my newest discovery.

Benefit's signature fragrance is called Maybe Baby. And they have created the most wonderful scented body lotion with that fragrance. Who knew?

The lotion is very lightweight, making it perfect for everyday - well, everyday you want to smell sexy and shimmer a bit. The lotion is lightly shimmered, but don't let that scare you. It is a very subtle shimmer - beautiful. It looks lovely on my legs, and I am now using it everyday.

And the scent? If you haven't had a whiff of this soft, sexy fragrance yet, stop by on of Benefit's counters and sniff. You will be pleasantly surprised. With base notes of White Musk and Peach - such a wonderful combination - Maybe Baby features top notes of apricot and white ginger, with middle notes of water blossoms, lychee, and bergamont.

My description: soft and sexy, with a bit of flirtatious fun.

Of course, the lotion can be layered by spraying the eau de toilette over it, but because I like a very subtle scent, the lotion alone is enough for me. And my husband even told my I smell great lately - and that is a huge compliment from someone who loathes fragrance all together.

Maybe Baby Body Lotion is $26.00 at benefitcosmetics.com.

A Perfect Surface.

I am always on the hunt for a great concealer. And a concealer that doesn't need a a touch-up throughout the day is difficult to find. While I have a few favorites that I use in the winter, I have been looking for something lighter, that can be touched up when needed during the hot summer months.

Voila - a new product from DuWop called Surface. Packaged in a lipstick tube, it reminded me of my very first concealer I used in high school. With all the new packaging on the market, DuWop hit it out of the ballpark with this ordinary packaging of an extraordinary product.

Surface is very smooth, and lightweight. It is the perfect texture to cover up under-eye circles and spots here and there. And for the portability I have been looking for, this is it.

When I apply it under my foundation, I simply swipe it on, and blend with my finger. But get how easy this is - when needing a later day touch-up, I just swipe it on, and leave it. No muss, no fuss. It is just so perfect where it is put.

Surface comes in 4 versatile, easy to match shades for $22.50. Look for DuWop's surface at Sephora.com.

Looking Ahead to Spring.

So - just because I am just beginning to go through my fall makeup and figure out which shades work best for me, beauty trends for next Spring & Summer premiered at last weeks Fashion Week.

The Beauty Addict, who did a great job covering the shows, has proclaimed that "the lip is back".

I for one, can't wait!

I love pink lips, and I must say that I wear pink well. 

Unlike pushing it out late for Fall, I am sure I will start wearing my Spring makeup in February.
