Zelens Lip EnhancerZelens is one of the best skincare brands available today and recently they launched an anti-aging makeup collection that will allow us to continue with our skincare regimen 24/7.

I love my New Lip Enhancer, you can wear it alone for a hint of color or you can layer it underneath your favorite crimson.

I layered mine today and my results are picture perfect. My lips are enhanced, smooth and pouty.

The Beauty Molecule by Fountain Beauty

Fountain BeautyYou guys know by now that if a vitamin or potion promises to give me healthy skin, that I’m going to drink it, right?

I recently started taking 1 Tsp of The Beauty Molecule by Fountain Beauty.  I mix it into my morning smoothie which consists of: 1/2 banana, 3 large organic frozen strawberries, a handful or organic mixed berries and a cup of organic orange juice.  I also mix in 2 Tsp of Collagen, and some filtered water.  It doesn’t taste fattening, but the benefits in a few weeks are going to be worth it.

I’ve been drinking this concoction every morning since the beauty molecule arrived.

It’s only been a few days, but I’m in it for the long-haul.

So, what’s your beauty beverage of choice?

P.s I did lose weight drinking the Apple Cider Vinegar we talked about several posts back…it curbs your appetite and I need to go back to drinking it every morning.

Keeping It Simple – Weekend Beauty Routine

photoI don’t know about you guys, but I like to keep it simple on the weekends.  Unless of course I have a date I’m nervous about.  Nervous because there are some men that just make a woman nervous, if you know what I mean.

Since I wear makeup 5 days a week and blow-dry my hair, it makes sense that I’m just lazy come Saturday morning, especially if it’s a beautiful day.

I wear no makeup, except for my eyebrows and maybe a CC or BB Cream, but highly unlikely.

This past weekend, was no exception and my beauty routine was easy-peasy.

1. Eye Cream – don’t forget to use one with anti-aging benefits, by Orlane.

2. Facial Oil with antioxidant protection and hydration, by Sunday Riley.

3. Lip Balm – this one is the best by Homeoplasmine.

4. Eyelash enhancer by Talika Lipocils.

5. Rodan Lip Balm for a bit of color.

6. Eyebrow Pencil by “IT” Cosmetics, the best I’ve ever tried.

7. Serum De Soie by Leonor Greyl – I let my hair air-dry and this keeps it silky smooth and frizz free all day.

There you have it, mind you I didn’t take any pictures of myself.  Not that I didn’t look nice, it’s just not the version of myself I want caught on film.

So, what’s your weekend beauty routine like?

 

 

Naturally Gorgeous Lashes

photoMy eye allergies act up periodically and I usually can’t wear mascara, like the week before last.

I also keep my beauty routine simple on the weekends, as I spend too much time getting myself together and out the door during the week.

I take advantage and apply my Talika Lipocils twice a day when faced with those situations.

Talika Lipocils is the best in lash enhancement serums, it was created for burned victims who lost all of their lashes. It’s safe and effective, producing naturally gorgeous lashes.

Sometimes all a girl needs is a red lip and the lashes of her dreams.

My Obsession with BB Creams – New Aqua BB by 3LAB

3LAB_AquaBBMy obsession with BB Cream continues and now I have a new compact to add to my rotations.

I’m big on using quality skincare and makeup, after all it comes into direct contact with my skin.

Also what’s not to love about a BB Cream formulated with anti-aging properties?

New Aqua BB glides on the skin, leaving behind silky skin for that perfect instagram selfie.

BB Creme – Orlane

BB cremeI don’t know about you guys, but I love clear, bright and healthy skin with my signature pop of crimson.

I’ve been suffering with dreadful eye allergies and have not been able to wear mascara this week.

My look to say is minimal since I hardly wear makeup to begin with.

I just tried my New BB Creme by Orlane this morning and loved it.  My skin is healthy and protected with just the right amount of color.

A plus is that this BB Creme has an SPF of 25 and it’s Anti-Fatigue, because let’s face it sometimes we just feel under the weather.

What’s your favorite BB Creme?

Protecting Your Skin – New Polyphenols 15 by Caudalie

Caudalie

Can I just say that I love the New Caudalie Polyphenol C15 collection.  I’ve noticed that my skin is smoother, pores are more minimized and skin is glowing.

Too bad I’m suffering from eye allergies, otherwise I would be completely happy.

What makes this collection special is that it’s affordable, and delivers it’s promise of more youthful looking skin.

Some of you may now know this, but besides my love of literature and red lipstick I am a true skincare junkie.

What are Polyphenols?  They are the most powerful antioxidant available and they protect the skin from smoke, pollution and other outside elements that cause premature aging skin.

Isn’t it time you protected your skin?

New CC Cream – “IT” Cosmetics

photoCan I just tell you guys that I am in CC Cream heaven.  Not only is the compact gorgeous, but the application is flawless.  The CC Cream just absorbs and blends into the skin, leaving it smooth and selfie ready.

I collect compacts now and will repeat myself, it’s not a bad thing to have several different foundations, compacts etc.

The only one beauty product you don’t want to open at the same time are multiple mascaras.  Why? Because they expire within three months.

This is one CC Cream that I just love!

Beauty Fluids – Caudalie

caudalieNo one wakes up with glowing skin every morning, we have to account for travel, late nights accidental dehydration, climate change and the list goes on and on.

What do I use in the event of a skin emergency? I pull out my Caudalie beauty fluids.  They really aren’t called that, but it’s the name I use for them because they give me back my glowing skin every time.

1. VinoPerfect Day Cream SPF15

2. VinoExpert Radiance Day Fluid SPF15

3. Teint Divin Tinted Moisturizer

4. VinoSource S.O.S Morning Eye Rescue

I can’t say which is my favorite, but I can say that they work and smell delicious.

isn’t it time we had a little help?
