Lancôme Spring 2012 Roseraie Des Delices

I love the new Roseraie Des Delices collection from Lancôme. The soft pastel colors are beautiful and perfectly balanced to be very wearable. One of my favorites from the collection is La Roseraie Illuminating Powder the multi-colored blush has just the right amount of color to perk up my cheeks without overwhelming my fair skin. 

Lancôme is thrilled to introduce Roseraie Des Delices, the Spring 2012 Collection by Aaron De Mey. Inspired by a rose garden on a balmy, tranquil afternoon, the collection features blush, eyeshadow palettes, and lip colors in soft pinks and greens.

De Mey hoped to capture the palette of summer nature, translating water, sun and sky into makeup shades that illuminate both sun-kissed and fair complexions.

The sophisticated collection includes the following products:

CHEEKS
· La Roseraie Illuminating Powder, $42 – multi-color powder blush embossed with a delicate rose

EYES
· Color Design 5 Pan Shadow and Liner Palette, $49 – in Rose Romance and Vert Tendresse

Valentine’s Day- DIY Beauty Scrubs, Masks and Baths.

Strawberry Scrub
To get your skin in tip top shape for the big day, what could be better than a homemade strawberry face and body scrub.
Ingredients:
2 pureed strawberries
1 tbsp of olive oil
1 tbsp of vegetable oil
1 tbsp of Vitamin E oil or pour out the liquid of 1 Vitamin E capsule.
2 tbsp of sugar
Mix all the ingredients together. In the shower, rub all over your body for a great exfoliating experience.

Raspberry honey face mask
The red raspberries contain loads of vitamin C which is essential for maintaining healthy clear glowing wrinkle free skin. The honey helps moisturize your skin because it contains natural moisturizers in it, and it helps fight acne and prevent it because it contains natural antibodies in it that kill the germs that cause the acne in the first place. The rolled oats help absorb unwanted oils and impurities from the skin while also lightly exfoliating it. These are the reasons why this is a beneficial facial mask for combination skin types.

Ingredients:
Mix 1/2-cup pureed raspberries
½ cup honey
½ cup rolled oats

Strawberry Acne Cleanser

Strawberry yogurt or
1 strawberry
2 tbsp plain yogurt

1-1/2 cups whole milk

5 drops rose essential oil
