20% off at Beauty.com.

If you need anything beauty related today, you should seriously think about shopping right now over on beauty.com. It is their Birthday and they are celebrating this day with another one of their friends and family events where they are giving us all a 20% off discount today, all day!

From 12:01 AM - 11:59 PM, take 20% off your entire order.

I am definitely going to use this savings and finally pick up the famed Clarisonic Skincare Brush

In case you have not heard about this beauty yet (which was on Oprah's favorite things, btw), here are all the details:

"Developed by the lead inventor of Sonicare®, Clarisonic® uses patented sonic technology to gently yet deeply cleanse pores of environmental toxins, makeup and bacteria ~ without abrasion or harsh chemicals. 

Unlike superficial cleansing, Clarisonic removes greater than 6X more makeup and actually increases product absorption - making the skin more receptive to skin care ingredients (up to 61% in a recent study).  Skin is demonstrably hydrated, more even-textured, and suffused with a beautiful glow.  With regular daily use the Clarisonic reduces dry skin patches, oily areas and blemishes.   Pore size, fine lines and wrinkles appear smaller.  Gentle enough for most skin types.  Waterproof and rechargeable for use at the sink and the shower.  Used and recommended by leading dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons."

I am so excited and can't wait to get it. I am sure it will not be the only thing in my box either! ;) Do let me know what you cave on.

Sun Safety from Sephora.

I am so excited to be on my way to LA for Total Beauty and their first beauty blogging summit. I know I will find at least a few minutes to dip my toes into the Pacific for the first time, and I have my sunscreen ready.

I wish I saw this kit a few days ago so I could have ordered it up in time. The kit I am speaking of is this beauty, Sephora's Sun Safety Kit.

This kit contains 11 travel-sized sunscreen and skincare for the face and body that are a definite must-have for the Summer season. And what a great way to try out a new brand before investing in full-size too.

In the great pouch are the following: Korres Natural Products Watermelon Sunscreen Face Cream SPF 30, Peter Thomas Roth Max Sheer All Day Defense Moisture Lotion SPF 30, DDF Daily Protective Moisturizer SPF 15,  Cosmedicine Medi-Matte Oil Control Lotion SPF 20,  Juice Beauty Green Apple Moisturizer SPF 15,  Murad Firming Bronzer SPF 15, Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion SPF 55 PA + + +, six single-use packs of MD Skincare Powerful Sun Protection Pads SPF 30, Clarins Sun Wrinkle Control Cream Ultra Protection SPF 30, Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer SPF 15, Tarte 24/7 Lip Sheer SPF 15.

Shop Sephora and Sephora.com for this $25 sun-spectacular kit. Separately, these beauties would run you $87.

Urban Heat from Prescriptives.

A great new Summer collection from Prescriptives is just launching on counters now. This is Urban Heat.

The face is lightly dusted with bronze for an all-over glow. Eyes are subtly contoured in shimmering earth tones punctuated by dramatic accents of bright azure and deep purple. Cheeks are naturally radiant in sun-kissed shades while lips are swept in ripe, lush tones for a fiery finish. Hot!

The Urban Heat Collection:

Colorscope Lip Gloss - Sophisticated and modern, Colorscope Lip Gloss glides onto lips for extraordinary shine and a sheer finish. The ultra-smooth, lightweight texture px_summer_gloss.jpgleaves lips feeling soft, moist and smooth. Wear alone or slicked over your favorite Colorscope Lipcolor to intensify shine or transform color to give lips a full look. Shades: Trendy (Y/O), Sporty (Y/O), Gutsy (R/O), Feisty (R/O), Giggly (R), Sassy (R), Stylish (B/R), Edgy (B/R).
 

Kohl Eye Pencil (Limited Edition) - A super-soft eye liner with great color pay-off defines, lines, colors and contours the eyes. It allows just enough playtime to achieve a smoky, smudgy look or a dramatically defined one. Shades: Blue Grotto and Purple Rain.

Colorscope Creamy Eye Color - A longwearing cream eye shadow that stays color-true all day long without creasing. This easy to blend formula in sparkling shades of gold and gunmetal can be customized as a soft sheen or layered with any Colorscope Eye Color as a base for multi-effects. Shades: Lychee (Y/O)and Smoking Gun (R).

Here To Stay 24-Hour Longwear Mascara - Lift and define lashes for up to 24 hours with this smudge-resistant, customizable formula. The ultra-comfortable formula is waterproof when worn alone or water-resistant over your favorite Prescriptives mascara…perfect for beating the summertime heat! Shade: Black.

Colorscope Lipcolor - A moisturizing, shiny and luscious formula in shades of mocha, bronze and shimmering plum. Shades: Majorcan Sand (Y/O), Chocolate Frost (Y/O), True Bronze (R/O), Berry Oodles (R).

The whole collection is gorgeous. And if you cave on just one thing, it has to be the new Kohl Eye Pencil. I am wearing it right now in Blue Grotto as it is the perfect Summer eye tool.  Well, you should probably pick up a new gloss or two (Sassy is my fave!) - and try the mascara or creamy lipcolor and shadow. There is so much here I like!

Shop at your local Prescriptives counter or online at Prescriptives.com.

Bring on the Heat!!!
