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.


All That Glitters Doesn't Have to be Gold.

Gold. Glitter They seem to go one in the same. But all that glitters doesn't have to be gold. How about pretty silver?

Silver. Sexy. All That Glitters is a sexy, silver shimmer powder infused with a very sexy scent - and it comes right out of it's own brush. This makes it simple to sweep over shoulders and decollete - making every day - or night shimmer.

The scent. This sexy shimmer is scented with clover, apple blossom, and clementine - for an alluring, confident fragrance.

All That Glitters is also available in Sweet or Sassy. It retails for $9.99 at mass retailers and chain drugstores nationwide.


Purity. Pure & Simple.

My favorite cleanser to date: Philosophy's Purity. I have used many of Philosophy's products in the past, and even swear by a few of them. It has left me wondering why it took me so long to discover Purity.

First off, I must say that I hate to use a few products to really get to the nitty gritty of cleaning my face. I loathe eye makeup remover, and toner is not one of my favorite' s either. I think that the  promise of Purity being a multi-tasking cleanser really drew me to it.

The first thing I noticed was how nice the smell was, so fresh and clean... even pure (nice play on words!). And in my few weeks of playing with this cleanser has taught me that a tiny dime sized amount will do.  I gently massage the cream over my face, neck, and even eyes - through my eyelashes! I rub around, ever so lightly, for about 20 - 30 seconds. That is all it takes. Every bit of makeup is removed. There is no oil or dryness left behind. And the feeling - clean. Pure clean - really!

Purity comes in two sizes - 8 oz. for $20 or 16 oz. for $32. Obviously the large size is the better value - and that will be the one I pick up when I am out.
