Get Red Carpet Worthy Glow with Vita Liberata

S_PHENOMENAL MEDIUM_2-3_WEEK_SELF TAN MOUSSE

I have paper white skin in winter and can’t live without sunless tanner come the warmer days of late Winter and early Spring. But anyone who has used sunless tanners knows how great they vary in quality from Oompa Loompa orange to beautiful bronze. So I was excited to check out Vita Liberata’s pHenomenal 2-3 week tan mousse which is a red carpet regular for celebs wanting to look their best for award shows.

I have tried a few of the Vita Liberata tanning products and loved them I was excited to see how this mousse would work. This mousse has to be my new favorite self tanning product its the look of an airbrushed tan at home. The mousse is really light and easy to apply with the mitt. I love that it doesn’t have any weird tanner smell and the color guide makes application a cinch.

You can see from the before and after it leaves a really beautiful and natural bronze color. I like to apply it before bed and when I wake up I have a beautiful golden glow. And this tan lasts for two weeks easy and wears off in a natural way so its great from start to finish.

New! Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield

murad invisblur

Yes, yes a million times yes! As I was putting on my many layers of creams and serums yesterday I thought why the heck are there so many and why do none of them have an SPF. Murad heard my call and the mailman delivered a bottle that contains everything I need in one step!

The new Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield is a broad spectrum SPF 30. So it protects my skin from future damage while improving the appearance of lines, wrinkles and my skins texture. And the serum is so light and silky it feels like silk going on and leaves my skin so smooth. It works great with makeup or alone. Seriously this stuff is fantastic. I will update how its working on my skin and a few weeks use. Until then I need to plot what to do with all my extra time now that I don’t have to spackle layers of cream and SPF on every day.

Would you spend $200 on a toothbrush?

ISSA

What if it was fancy and looked like this one?

Meet the Issa Toothbrush. Introduced as a “revolutionary, gentle silicone toothbrush featuring breakthrough pulsating dental technology.” Sounds…. interesting?

Utilizing the newest in dental care technology, the Foreo ISSA™ features high-intensity pulsations which are channeled through soft silicone bristles, instead of the damaging scratching action that standard bristled toothbrushes use. The silicone bristles generate the ideal amount of friction to effectively remove stains and plaque while remaining gentle on tooth enamel and helping to prevent gum recession. With its ergonomic design, the ISSA’s compact form is half the weight of standard electric toothbrushes, and features a brush head with 3D flexibility to adapt to any tooth surface and can brush even the most difficult-to-reach crevices. The brush reminds users to brush a new quadrant of the mouth every 30 seconds and signals when a two-minute brushing routine is completed.

Other features include:
– Each charge lasts for 365 uses (six months of use)
– The brush head needs replacement only once yearly
– No charging dock is required
– Eight-speed adjustable pulsations
– The brush is fully waterproof and can even be used in the shower
– A two-year limited warranty and 10-year quality guarantee is included

New! Laura Mercier WaterColour Mist Eye & Cheek Palette

laura mercier watercolor palette

Every once in awhile a palette comes along that is almost too beautiful to use. And Laura Mercier’s new Watercolour Clouds collection definitely falls into that category. The palette was created with little drops that look like rain. They are placed so perfectly it really does look like raindrops and on the reflective palette its just gorgeous.

I am usually not a fan of pastels the white base comes out to candy colored. But Laura Mercier has taken the white out and created the most gorgeous, wearable color. The shades are highly pigmented which is a feat with light colors.

The shadows go on velvety smooth without creasing. And with my primer they stay true all day. I am having so much fun with this collection. Its a huge departure from anything else I own and I can’t get enough!

Laura Mercier’Watercolour Mist’ Eye & Cheek Palette $52
Let calm, serenity and balance surround you with the Watercolour Mist Eye and Cheek Palette by Laura Mercier. It’s filled with modern, veil-like shades of cement green that merge with washed-out mauve, wheat and dirty navy for a look that’s both effortless and discreet.

– Mist Eyeshadow

Pro tips: Prime your eyelid then sweep Purple Rain from your lash line through the crease using an allover brush. Then, blend Mist from the crease fading outward on the brow bone. Use a smudging brush to add Cloud to the upper lash line, increasing in width blending outward and upward. Lightly blend Cloud over Purple Rain along the bottom lash line. Finish with an eyeliner and mascara.
