My New Years HIGH RÉSOLUTION from Lancôme.

Lancôme is helping me make a New Years Resolution with their just out High Resolution Eye with Collaser-48™.

lancom_hr.jpgThis serum's special complex of ingredients such as Vitamin P, HEPES, and Caffeine, has shown to accelerate the production of collagen in just 48 hours! Now that is fast - what I like from a product. Don't we all want almost immediate results?

I hope to put High Resolution Eye with Collaser-48™ to the test in our upcoming anti-aging experiment.

Here is what Lancôme has found through their testing so far:
"Immediately: Eyes feel smoother while puffiness is visibly reduced
3 Weeks: Wrinkles are visibly diminished and the appearance of dark circles is significantly reduced
4 Weeks: Feel firmness returns -100%; Eyes appear brighter – 84%"

High Resolution Eye is available now on their website or at Lancôme counters for $56.00. If you do try it, please let us know your results.



24-Karat Gold - BABY!

gold_dust.jpgI was looking for a little bit of subtle sparkle for New Years Eve last night, and I found it in Jane Iredale's 24-Karat Gold Dust in Gold. And what is truly amazing about this Gold Dust is that it is made with real 24-Karat Gold Leaf.

I swept it over my cheeks, eyelids, chest and shoulders for the big night.  I also patted a bit of it over my lipstick for the evening (Mally's Zooey Doll - the perfect red for my fair skin). I not only looked luxurious, I felt it!

I love how you can totally control the amount of sparkle you wear by simply punching out only a few of the holes in the top of the sifter disc. I never thought of that, but it is instructed right on the package. Love it!

Look for Gold Dust ($34) and all of the great Iredale Mineral Cosmetics online at her website to see the newest innovations in mineral makeup.
