My Favorite new product Bare Escentuals “Pretty Amazing Lipcolor” Winners!

Congrats to our contest winners: Colleen B, Sarah, Martan, Theresa and Tasana, please watch your email inbox!

Pretty Amazing lipcolor sets the bar pretty high but it not only meet expectations it surpasses them. This has to be one of my favorite lip products in a long time the applicator is soft and bendy so application is a breeze. It applies like a gloss with AMAZING shine but feels denser like a lipstick and the color lasts and lasts and lasts.  I love it!

UPDATE: The more I use Pretty Amazing the more I love it! I went for a girls overnight bachlorette party this weekend and for the first time I only needed one lip gloss, Pretty Amazing!

About the book
Top Cosmetic Scientists Answer Your Questions about the Lotions, Potions and Other Beauty Products You Use Every Day

Based on the blog at TheBeautyBrains.com, this informative book cuts through the confusing, misleading, and sometimes false information that beauty companies bombard consumers with and provides scientific answers to hundreds of questions about cosmetics.

About The Beauty Brains
The Beauty Brains are a group of chemists who have more than 40 combined years of experience developing and testing beauty products at major cosmetic companies including Proctor & Gamble, Unilever and Alberto Culver. Perry Romanowski, the public face of the Brains, has spent the past 18 years researching and developing products to solve consumer problems in hair and skin care. He is also the coauthor of Beginning Cosmetic Chemistry, an introductory textbook of beauty science.

TEN TRUTHS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT YOUR COSMETICS:
1. Curling Shampoos Don’t Work!
2. Wearing the right fragrance can actually make people think you have lost weight.
3. While brushing your hair does temporarily help distribute natural oils, in the long run brushing “100 strokes every night” strips layers of cuticle and weakens hair.
4. There is no proof that tourmaline flat irons perform any better than the less expensive non-ceramic versions.
5. Sunscreen is one of the best cosmetics you can use to keep your skin looking young and wrinkle-free.
6. Spit on a zit may not be an old wives’ tale after all!
7. There is a difference between antiperspirant and deodorant. Antiperspirant actually stops you from sweating, while deodorant just masks the odor.
8. No cosmetic will make your nails grow longer and stronger, but you can do things to improve their condition.
9. Urea is found in cosmetics, but it does not come from urine!
10. Multiple types of parabens are used in formulas to ensure that your personal care and cosmetic products are as free as possible from disease-causing microbes.
