Innovation - Liquid Minerals.

Jane Iredale - the woman who basically founded mineral makeup has just gone a step further.  She has recently launched a line of all new amazing products. And the most innovative I think is that of her Liquid Minerals.

iredale.jpgWOW! This has to be the most unique makeup product I have ever seen.  While I have seen skin care products full of spheres, never a makeup product. I am so intrigued.

Here is what they say:
     "The beads or spheres visible in the airless pump are actually liposomes entrapping liposomes. This state-      of-the-art technology allows us to encapsulate large amounts of active ingredients, which are then time-      released on to the skin. This controlled and sustained release into the epidermis increases delivery by up to 40%."

Just take at look at her website where it shows the full range of shades  - all 18 of them. That is pure innovation in itself.

As soon as I can get my hands on this and give it a good try, I will post all about it.


A Pink Power Kiss.

Power Kiss.

Love the name. Love the product. Love the cause.

bca_duwop.jpgDuWop has created the ultimate Power Kiss for BCA month. The Power Kiss is an adorable pink miniature lip gloss case with a mirror and metal strap, filled with DuWop's Pink Shimmer Lip Venom. Pink Shimmer Lip Venom is the same formula as the original Lip Venom, but is infused with stunning pink shimmer.

A portion of the proceeds from Power Kiss will be given to CEW's Cancer and Careers, an organization that helps provide inspiration and insight to working women with cancer.

Power Kiss retails for $22.50, available at Duwop Online, of course.


Real Help or Hype?

Another product from Fusion Beauty - this one is Lift Fusion. Is this one all about the hype - or does it really help soften wrinkles similar to Botox?

lift_fusion.jpgWell, it wasn't in store at Sephora when I was there last week. Seems I will be making another trip soon - sans makeup to try this baby out!

Have I considered Botox? Yes - I have. If for anything, just as an experiment. I have very few wrinkles - mostly from squinting and laughing. I guess these are the more "natural" wrinkles at this point in my life. But I would like to see if just a bit will soften them. So then, if I really need it in the future for deeper wrinkles, I will know whether it is worth it for me.  

But first, I will give this a try- anything to avoid an injection - and if this works as the studies say it does - the high price of Botox injections.

Here is the description, straight from Sephora:

Fusion Beauty has pushed the envelope in creating the first Topical-Injectable(tm) alternative to doctor-administered antiwrinkle injections. Both a powerful wrinkle-relaxant and a collagen-booster in one safe needle-free formula. LiftFusion(tm) Micro-Injected MTox(tm) Transdermal Facelift delivers instant, visibly transformational results comparable to popular, physician administered injectables - without the discomfort, side effects, and unnatural loss of facial expressiveness associated with many syringe-administered antiwrinkle products.

What it is formulated to do:
Utilizing the most sophisticated delivery system on the market today, this advanced MTox(tm) technology, (a patented blend of naturally derived compounds that absorb into the skin and visibly relax fine lines, creases, and wrinkles) helps reduce existing wrinkles AND boost collagen to promote skin's natural defenses against new ones; effective right away (within 10 minutes), but completely reversible in 24 hours.

Clinical Testing/Results:
In a clinical study comparing LiftFusion's(tm) topical formula to the top-rated physician administered injectable, results showed 9 out of 10 users preferred LiftFusion(tm) for immediate and cumulative antiwrinkle effects. Test results confirmed, only LiftFusion(tm) delivered a significant visual reduction of fine lines and deep wrinkles.

As my last post on Beauty Fusion's GlowFusion provided a many variety of comments, I am hoping this will do the same.
