Estée Lauder introduces Sensuous Noir

I am really enjoying the new Sensuous Noir from Estee Lauder, the new sexier addition to the Sensuous line. Its the perfect evening fragrance very woody with a creamy vanilla undertone. If you are looking for the perfect scent for date night check out Sensuous Noir.

Estée Lauder introduces Sensuous Noir – a deeper, more mysterious and even more captivating expression of feminine sensuality . . .

Like Sensuous, Sensuous Noir is built from a core of Melted Wood NaturePrint, Honey and Amber. However, in Sensuous Noir the floral aspects have been intensified to reinforce the deeper sensuality. By adding Exotic Purple Rose, Rose Essence and Spiced Lily, a darker, midnight garden aura was created. Also, a Crème Noir Accord and Patchouli Prisma – a new extraction of an iconic symbol of sensuality -have been added to “darken” the core signature accord of the Melted Woods. Finally, Sensuous Noir increases the presence of Black Pepper, Vanilla, Amber and Benzoin, contributing to the rich darkness of the fragrance. The result is a new, even richer, sensual dimension of the fragrance that is signature Sensuous, but meant for after dark.

Disclosure: I received a free sample of this product to provide an honest review to our readers.

NEW from Kiehls! Photo-Age High-Potency Spot Treatment

I have very sensitive skin, and as I get older, the sun is taking its toll. By the end of the summer, I will have a patch of sun spots that are less than cute. I hate it! I looked into finding sun-spot removers, but there weren’t a lot to pick from. I was happy to get a sample of this product, see if it really works!

I use it twice a day, in the morning and before bed. I’ve noticed the sun spots are slowly going away. I’ve been using it for two weeks, and I’m confident that in a month or so these spots of mine shall be gone like the summer sun! I highly reccommend it!

High-Potency Spot Treatment powerfully reverses UV damage three ways: provides instant luminosity and radiance, reverses visible damage on skin surface and inhibits invisible damage from rising to the surface.

How to use: Apply on areas of concern for targeted action (such as on intense, stubborn spots) or apply over the entire face and décolleté for preventative action (such as blotchiness and hyperpigmentation).

My new obsession!

At last! The wait for a truly innovative product is over. boscia, the leader in preservative-free skincare, introduces its next breakthrough in anti-aging: the peel-off Luminizing Black Mask.

The boscia Luminizing Black Mask is a powerful peel-off purifier that boosts skin’s clarity and radiance by minimizing hyper-pigmentation and refining pores. What sets this product apart from any other is the peel-off delivery system, in which the mask adheres to the skin, forming an even, shiny, opaque black “veil.” Once the mask is completely dry, it is peeled off, stripping the dead skin and all impurities!

Ideal for all skin types, the Luminizing Black Mask is rich in natural clays, minerals, extracts, vitamins and antiseptics – all infused to deliver exceptional deep-pore cleansing and exfoliation while drawing out impurities, bacteria and excess oil. Simultaneously, it delivers powerful antioxidant protection to prevent future free-radical damage that results in wrinkles, dryness, and dullness.

boscia’s NEW Luminizing Black Mask (2.8 fl oz.) retails for $34.00 and is available now exclusively at Sephora, sephora.com and bosciaskincare.com.

I am madly in love with this product! When I first read about the new boscia peel off mask I knew I must try it and set out to do so. Well better than Christmas morning I received a sample of boscia Luminizing Black Mask to review. It’s every bit as fun and good for my skin that I had hoped

Check out my first boscia mask experience.

The boscia Luminizing Black mask is a really thick goey mask but still very easy to apply.

I look a little demented, my first trial run was at 11pm I couldn’t wait any longer to try it.

After 10 minutes the mask has seeped into my pores creating a firm bond on all the impurities. I liked watching the mask go from smooth as glass to textured as it dried.

15 minutes are up, time to pull off the mask. It was really easy to peel off. Do be REALLY careful about your hairline when applying.

You can see all the little bumps on the mask it basically pulled yucky stuff out of every pore. For anyone who was a fan of Biore strips you are going to be obsessed with this product. Love it, definitely a new staple in my beauty cabinet.

Whether posting pictures on Facebook, prepping for the prom or nailing the first job interview, never has it been harder for teens to embrace their beauty and stay true to themselves. Renowned makeup artist Bobbi Brown is helping young women become their most amazing selves with her fresh, new beauty bible Beauty Rules (Chronicle Books, September 2010). In Beauty Rules, Bobbi builds beauty from the inside out with tips on everything from exercise and eating right to the importance of being a great friend. And, of course, there’s plenty about getting great makeup. Plus, Hilary Duff wrote the book’s foreword.

In celebration of her new book, Bobbi designed a pretty palette of wearable eye, lip and cheek colors and launched a new site, www.BeautyRules.com. The sites features behind the scenes photos and video footage, before and after images, and a quiz that allows users to create their own set of beauty rules, while accurately match themselves to one of the girls in the book. Plus, a great mother-daughter makeover sweeps.
