I am sold hook, line and sinker on these little patches. My allergies have been killing me, the Pacific Northwest has been hit with an extraordinarily bad allergy season. Along with red, scratchy eyes my eye area is puffy and feels ick. The first time I put these patches on I felt like running outside and going full Maria Von Trapp singing the Hills Are Alive as I spin in circles through clouds of pollen. The eye masks felt like ice cold angel kisses on my allergy swollen skin.

I love to apply these at night before I brush my teeth and get ready for bed. The feel so amazing and after I remove there is a bit of serum I gently pat in to work over night while I sleep. The results is brighter, smoother skin that feels as great as it looks.

While I love at home spa treatments time is something I never have a lot of.  So I jumped at the chance to try Patchology’s FlashMasques, all the benefits of a great face mask but it only takes 5 minutes.

I sampled the Exfoliate FlashMasque and the first thing I noticed upon opening the package was the amazing scent. Fresh and clean with a hint of citrus. The mask itself is made of a super soft baby blanket like material.  The mask formed well to my face and I was able to get things done without it falling off. Just 5 quick minutes and I removed the mask. It leaves a bit of serum on your skin which you just rub in.

My skin felt great after just 5 minutes and was so smooth.  I love how great the results are in just 5 minutes. And the serum left my skin smooth and ready for makeup such an easy addition to my morning routine and just once a week is all it takes for great results.

Introducing Kendall Jenner for Modern Muse Le Rouge

LeRouge_1366x700_MPP_FINAL_01

MODERN MUSE LE ROUGE
A NEW FRAGRANCE BY ESTÉE LAUDER
Be Daring. Be An Inspiration.

Estée Lauder unveils a daring new facet of modern femininity – Modern Muse Le Rouge, a new fragrance
inspired by the glamorous, more provocative side of a Modern Muse. Le Rouge reflects the woman who is
confident and sexy. She never goes unnoticed. It’s all about her signature color of red – which embodies her
style, attitude and undeniably powerful effect.

The Le Rouge Muse dares to inspire. She commands a reaction with her boldness, timeless glamour and
enviable confidence. Her style and presence always make an impression. She is bold, daring and sexy; she’s a
provocative inspiration to others.

Fragrance

A Fruity Floral Oriental scent, Modern Muse Le Rouge is a sexy contrast of rich roses awakened by ripe fruits
with a velvet cream accord that captures the drama of this muse’s personality. The innovative “dualimpression”
fragrance structure allows women to experience the fragrance through two contrasting accords:

  • Ripened Roses Accord: This facet of the fragrance captures the undeniable boldness of the Le Rouge
    woman and the color. Juicy fruitiness of Bourgeon de Cassis and Raspberry, contrasted with vibrant
    Pink Pepper and Saffron blends with the floral richness of Bulgarian Rose and the petally freshness of
    Rose Centifolia.
  • Velvet Cream Accord: Her sexy, provocative sense of style and dramatic presence are expressed
    through an addictive blend of full-bodied Madagascar Vanilla and the textural muskiness of Ambrette,
    refined with earthy, seductive Vetiver and Patchouli – and freshened with the lush femininity of
    Magnolia Flower and Jasmine.

 

“It was not just about capturing the scent of red, it was about capturing a state of mind, a vibrant, dramatic
attitude,” says Karyn Khoury, Senior Vice President, Corporate Fragrance Development Worldwide, The Estée
Lauder Companies. “This woman inspires others through her unwavering confidence, glamour and
sophistication. She lives her life to be noticed – and every ingredient in this scent was carefully selected to
reflect that.”

Find Your Perfect Primer with Pür Minerals

In order to achieve the perfect makeup look, you need to start with a flawless canvas. Let Pür Minerals help you minimize the appearance of pores, fine lines and imperfections while making your foundation look even better with their selection of color correcting primers:

Years of ignoring how fair my skin is and sunbathing has left me with some unsightly sun spots on my face. And this time of year they definitely become more noticeable. I just had the chance to try the Pür Minerals Color Correcting primer and I am really impressed with the results.

To cover my age spots I used the peach primer. The formula is thick enough to coat well but feels very light going on my skin and absorbs instantly leaving a smooth surface ready for makeup. I really liked the texture of this primer and that it didn’t feel heavy on my skin or clog my pores. Will definitely be starting my daily makeup routine with this powerhouse.

My skin has a very red undertone and I was eager to see how the green Pür Minerals Color Correcting primer could even out my skin tone. As you can see from the photo above half my forehead has primer while the right half has none. The green primer totally neutralized the red tones in my skin leaving it uniform in color and looking much clearer.

The green primer had the same great lightweight texture and feel on my skin. Once I apply it I can’t even tell I’m wearing any makeup. This is great for covering acne, blotchy skin or discolored skin and I like how a tiny bit goes a long way to correct. A great product to create a clean canvas for your makeup.
