BEAUTY BUZZ: December 2011

December 28

Lips: Collection 2000 in 14 mango tango
I’ve been receiving questions on the bright color I’ve been wearing in the past month, THIS IS IT! perfect bright color & so affordable.

Nails: Chanel Nailpolish 531 Peridot
Chanel are the leaders when setting the nail colors of the season, which is why I always fall into the fad of making sure I have the chanel nailpolish of the season. This one is perfect for the party season & I love how it changes into a different shade depending on the light!

Eyeliner: Urban Decay Glide on eye pencil
I like my eyeliners jetblack and easily glide on & this one is just that – that is all.

Hair: Batiste Dry shampoo
I was recently introduced to Batiste, and now I know why I found dry shampoos quite useless… I wasn’t introduced to Batiste. This dry shampoo not only gives your hair a clean look – it also gives it that perfect ‘oomph’ and subtle volume. oh, and they all smell SO good!

Highlighter: Benefit Watt’s Up!
I’ve been hearing about Benefit’s Watt’s Up! for a while now and wanted to give it a try. I like using a highlighter on my cheek bones after applying bronzer and this gives my skin the perfect soft focus highlighter – just don’t forget to blend as it does look a little strong under the sun right after application.

Body spray: Philosophy – you are divine – spray fragrance at QVC
I love throwing this in my bag when I have a long day as well as when I’m off to the gym – it freshens me up and easy to throw in the bag!

Face wipes: Kleenex Facial Cleansing wipes
I live in Face Wipes – I always make sure to wipe my make up off once I get home followed by cleansing so I don’t sleep with an inch of make up. I always pick up wipes that are great for sensitive skin. I have been using the Kleenex Facial cleansing wipes – they are eco, so gentle – feels like a babys blanket and is perfect for gently removing eye make up.

Moisture: L’Occitane Limited edition Dry skin hand cream
Winter is hear and with working on the computer for long hours, I need a hydrating hand cream. This month, I have been using L’occitane’s limited edition which has a really fun & funky print and love the large sized tube. The baby scent wins it for me too…

Fragrance: Dolce & Gabbana ‘The One’ Lace edition
Not only am I impressed with Dolce’s clothes and make up- I also adore their fragrances too! I have been a huge fan of ‘The One’ and currently using the lace edition – perfect for fall (as well as a christmas present!) the scent is so sexy too…

Sealer: Lipcote
As you know, I’m always busy running around during the day so I always like to find great primers or sealing products to use under and over my make up. Lipcote is a brand my mom used when she was younger… it really is the original lipstick sealer but I recently picked one up to try it as it has a new vanilla fragrance and I have been obsessed… wearing it over all my lipsticks!

Gloss: Clarins Gloss Prodige in 08 Papaya
I’ve been using this Clarins gloss through out the month – a great pale pink that doesn’t overpower your lipstick underneath and looks great with a smoky eye! Love how it also has a papaya scent too like it’s shade name.
