Space NK’s Beauty Gift Bag Event

20 Feb

Space NK Gift Bag

SpaceNK’s Beauty Gift Bag is the only gift bag besides Barneys’ that I think is worth the splurge. I’ve discovered some of my fave must-haves in this bag of tricks, including Radical Skincare’s amazing Age Defying Exfoliating Pads.

This gem is filled to the brim with amazing high end, well-curated products. Some are even full size! The gift bag itself is worth $325. Granted you must $250 to qualify. But if  you buy makeup and skincare, this would be the time to splurge on all your  faves!

The event is on now while supplies last. Order online, visit your local Space NK store, or their Bloomingdale’s in-store boutique.

The image above is what’s really in the bag:)

Poncho Anyone? 27 Miles Is The Answer!

28 Jan

27 Miles Malibu

I just discovered the clothing line 27 Miles (named after the original length of Malibu) and I’m in love!  Their ponchos are making me long for summer. Delicious cashmere in great colors, for an easy laid back look. Boho, beachy and luxe all mixed into one! I have visions of being wrapped in this, while cozying it up at a Point Dume bonfire, watching the sun set.

27 Miles Lexi Poncho

The Lexi poncho in Fuschia Orange, along with the Grey Lime version are my favorites. And this style can be worn not only as a poncho, but as a wrap or scarf. Three in one versatility!

Next on my list is the Giuliana Kimono. Can’t wait to get my hands on that. Delicate lace with silk satin binding. And I mustn’t forget the fun yet edgy Lucia jacket! I see an addiction forming rapidly!

L’Oreal Paris Infallible Le Gloss in Red Fatale

10 Dec

072312-gwen-stefani-tca-lips-340

I know I’ve already reviewed L’Oreal’s Infallible Le Gloss, but this stuff is so good that I had to snatch up more colors. Which lead me to discovering my new favorite long wearing red lip color. Just in time for the Holidays.

Red Fatale is a true red, neutral and opaque, that works with every skintone. In fact, it’s a Gwen Stefani red and she knows her reds. Now, I must confess. I tend to get lazy about wearing bright colors because I hate having to touch them up all day. But this gloss is not only super long-wearing, resisting fading and feathering, it’s also hydrating. But my favorite quality is that L’Oreal has nailed the perfect tone, the perfect hue. It actually makes your skin look brighter, more rested, more radiant. This gloss is truly glow worthy.

But don’t despair if this red seems overwhelming. Try Cherry Flash (340) for a softer less opaque shade of red. I just couldn’t resist. I had to have both!

Tip: Line your pucker first to get a more defined shape. And don’t rub your lips together when applying. It’ll prevent pushing the color to the edges. Just coat the lips with a layer or two and that’s it. You are good to go for hours!

L’Oreal Infallible Lip Gloss

1 Nov

The future in lip gloss is here with the L’Oreal Infallible collection. This long-wearing lip gloss lives up to its name. Lasting for hours while retaining the gloss in lip gloss. Most long-wearing products fail to live up to their claims or to maintain their glossiness. They end up dry, patchy, faded and gummy.

L’Oreal’s Infallible beats them to a pulp, with zero dryness, high shine, and relentless longevity! A feat in lip technology. Not only that but both the original and the plumping version have a plumping effect. And you only need one coat. Lips look defined, full, and lustrous for hours on end. It’s no wonder it was Allure’s 2012 Readers Choice Award Winner!

May favorite colors: Infallible Lip Glos in Bloom and Infallible Plumped Lip Gloss in Plumped Coral.

One con: The 8 hour claims seems like a bit of an exaggeration in my opinion. 3-5 is the wear I give. But I certainly haven’t tried anything that comes that close before.

From the site:

The proof is in the wear.

  • Available in 20 Infallible(TM) shades.
  • Formulated with a Shine-fix Complex, which combines color and shine for wear that lasts longer.

Infallible® 8HR Gloss has an improved hydrating formula that keeps lips softer, smoother, more colorful and glossier for eight shining hours. The patented Petit Couer applicator contours lips precisely, giving you a smooth, even, flawless finish every time. Available in a range of 20 sheer, luminous shades that stay true without changing, fading or dulling. Use it together with Infallible™ Never Fail Makeup for a perfectly polished, long-lasting look. No top coats. No feathering. No fading. It has to be Infallible™.
