A Microcirculatory Effect - Can this be Good For You?

Have you seen Smashbox's newest blush called O-Glow? It is blush that is said to work with your own personal chemistry to have you naturally blushing all day.

Experience instant chemistry as your complexion is transformed from so-so to oh-so-glowing! The first intuitive blush, this clear gel reacts with your personal skin chemistry to turn cheeks the exact color you blush, naturally in just seconds! O-GLOW works on every skin tone, from the lightest to the darkest, to give everyone a naturally gorgeous glow. When applied, your skin's moisture activates the energizing Goji Berry-C Complex™. It creates a microcirculatory effect, producing a rosy flush that lasts all day. This revolutionary silicone-based clear gel works on every skin tone and is microcirculating and skin energizing to keep cheeks naturally flushed for hours. O-GLOW's unique Goji Berry-C Complex™ formula is full of antioxidants like vitamin C, pomegranate seed oil and marine plankton for added healthy-skin benefits. The completely natural looking, preservative and fragrance-free formula glides on smoothly for a healthy, glowing blush that's you, only prettier.

I don't know about you, but I am concerned. Can this really be good for your blood or your skin? Is this Goji Berry-C Complex a safe ingredient? I know that when I blush, my cheeks feel very warm. I mean, isn't blushing a surge of blood to your cheeks, or other areas? I am afraid to try this.

Has anyone used O-GLow yet? If you have, I am anxious to know - how did it feel? Did you cheeks feel warm? Did it last longer than a conventional makeup product?

A Good For You Lipgloss!

If you spend enough time on the beauty blogs, then you have probably heard about this. But I am asking you now - have you tried it yet?

tarte_insideout.jpg I am talking about Tarte's newest innovation - a lip gloss that is good for you. Yes, Inside Out, a creation between Tarte and Borba, one of the leading nutraceutical companies, is here. And it is a sure fire winner.

Seeing as the average lip gloss user will ingest 2 - 4 pounds (YES - POUNDS) of lip gloss in a lifetime, than it should be good for you, right? That is where Borba's expertise comes in. So this gloss not only shines well, tastes great (like pomegranate), moisturizes lips as it shines them - but the vitamins inside the gloss pack a long-term punch in helping skin retain moisture, restore radiance, and clarify. Not just the lips - your skin. On your entire body!
