Exciting New Launch: Kiehl's BB Cream.

Kiehl's may be late to the game with the launch of their BB Cream, but they are late for a good reason. Kiehl's took over two years to formulate the new Skin Tone Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream and they got it right. I am really excited about this one and could not wait to share.

The new Kiehl's Skin Tone Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream is not only the best feeling BB cream I have tried, it is a true BB Cream. As in, this is not just a tinted moisturizer with a BB Cream label slapped onto it like many of the brands seem to do. It is formulated with amino acid-coated natural mineral pigments. It helps to conceal imperfections while working to correct skin discolorations over the long term. It also reduces the appearance of pores and fine lines, which is such a good thing. Not only that, it provides all-day hydration and broad-spectrum SPF 50 protection. That is unprecedented in a BB Cream, especially with one that is so lightweight and easy to wear.

Normally, I am sensitive to a lot of mineral formulas, but I have not had an issue with the Skin Tone Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream at all. I've been wearing it for over a week, and it was love at first swipe. I have been wearing it ever since. I am using the shade Medium, which is the darkest shade and it is darker than what I thought it would be. I am only wearing that shade because of all the self-tanning I have going on right now, but normally I would be Light, and maybe even Fair/Light in the winter. For the palest of skin tones, there is Fair.

Kiehl's Skin Tone Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream sells for $37.00 and is available wherever Kiehl's products are sold including online at kiehls.com.

A 5 Minute Summer Makeup Look with Stila.

With summer here, I spend less and less time on makeup. It is just too hot to wear a full face of makeup when heading out to the beach or a friends for a BBQ.

Face

Lighten up and let your skin breathe with the wonderful Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Beauty Balm SPF 30. Skin perfectors and SPF give you everything you need to just swipe on and go. I reviewed Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Beauty Balm last year and was pleased with it, except for the fact that there was no SPF in it. This new updated version contains SPF 30 making it both perfect and easy for summer.

Lips and Cheeks

Convertible Color is perfect for both lips & cheeks. The color peony is creamy, lush and the perfect peachy shade for almost any skin tone. Just dab on lips and cheeks with your fingers; it will sink right in for a natural summer flush. Peach is such a natural pretty shade for summer, both with or without a tan.

Eyes

The secret to fabulous poolside eyes are the products. They need to last and hold up to all the elements. Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black and Stay All Day Waterproof Volumizing Mascara. This is the perfect combination for defined eyes that won't smudge or budge.

It doesn't get much simpler than this now does it? Leave your summer makeup tips and favorite fast products in the comments.
