I just was sent some Rodial Creme de la Creme and it is perfect for the cold, dry winter air. It quickly absorbs into my skin and leaves it super hydrated and kept my skin from getting red and irritated from the cold.

Rodial Skincare has a fantastic kit that’s perfect for both the holidays and as an introduction to the line – the LA Facelift Kit ($99). It includes five perfectly sized products that are housed in a decadent silver and pink box.

If you haven’t tried Carmindy’s line for Sally Hansen get off the computer and run to the store! I have loved her makeup tips since I started watching What Not To Wear she is the perfect person to headline a new beauty line. My favorite thing about this line is how great it feels on. I was sent a few samples of the line to wear and fell in love such amasing products and a very affordable price which helps in this tough economy. I am wearing 4 of the 5 pieces from the kit right now and I can tell you they feel great on and I love how my face looks polished and pretty but not over done, I just can’t say enough about how much I love this line. Thank you Carmindy and Sally Hansen!

Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy has three kits that make great gifts. The 5 Minute Face Kit has everything you need to achieve a naturally flawless face in just five minutes. The Perfect Smoky Eyes kit helps you to get that elusive smoky eye in no time. The Super Balm kit has three Moisture Plump Lip Shades that take the guess work out of finding your perfect color as they are universally flattering.

A great gift for the hard to shop for lady on your list. Lisa Hoffman’s scents are the perfect gift made from essential oils the scent is made to last and you can easily dabble and mix your own signature scent with the rollerball applicators. I tried a sample of the Tunisian Neroli  and just love the scent. I love that the scents are set up for four stages throughout your day down to a evening scent to help you get a great nights sleep.

Lisa Hoffman Beauty has the perfect scents for whoever is on your list. The Variations Fragrance line ($95) consists of 5 core scents that fit anytime of day. Each scent has four pulse point oils that are designed to complement you in the morning, the afternoon, the evening, and bedtime. Housed in a beautiful leather pouch, they make a fabulous gift.

I have been sent several samples from the new Sally Hansen Inspired by Carmindy line and have really loved them.  The Luminizing Face Primer is no exception. It felt really light going on my skin and made a notable difference in my pores, and felt great on. I gave my face that fresh from a facial glow without the time or money!

Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy has a Luminizing Face Primer ($9.95 at drugstores) that not only smoothes and refines your skin to hide pores and lines, but creates a healthy glow! Micronized pearls allow you to shine whether you wear the primer alone or under your makeup. Skin-smoothing cork oak and olive leaf extracts nourish your skin and boost radiance while vitamin E provides antioxidant protection.

Banish dull, dry winter skin with Lisa Hoffman’s hard working Spa Bath Body Polisher. I love how packed this polisher is with scrubbing granules, it made polishing my skin a breeze.  The heavenly scent of Orchid, Bergamot, Jasmine and Orange leaves your skin polished and smelling delicious.  The pump dispenser is a nice change from the usual tub bath scrubs come in that you have to dig into, one little pump and your on the way to luminous skin.

Lisa Hoffman Beauty’s Spa Bath Body Polisher ($19.95 at www.lisahoffmanbeauty.com) is a deep cleanser that’s designed to remove dead skin cells and leave behind skin that is polished and flawless! Put it on when in the bath or shower and step out with gorgeous skin.

A super rich moisturizer that tackle even the driest winter skin. If you have skin that gets beaten up this time of year like mine from the wind and cold you need to check this stuff out. The  shea butter and vitamin E get my wind and cold ravaged skin feeling soft and smooth again in no time flat!

It helps to firm, hydrate and restore your skin’s elasticity and it calms irritation caused by the cold! Crème de la crème is instantly absorbed to provide long lasting hydration.

Fall in love with Sally Hansens Natural Beauty inspired by Carmindy

Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy offers a wide variety of products for your Fall look. Additionally, Carmindy (of TLC’s What Not to Wear) has you covered with some great tips!

For example, smoky eyes are always a Fall favorite. For a quick and easy smoky eye, use the Instant Definition Eye Shadow Palette in Storm. The highlight, lid and contour shades make it easy to get a foolproof smoky eye in seconds. All you have to do is apply the highlight shade under the brow and on the inner corners of the eyes. Sweep on the smoldering lid shade across the lid from the lash line to the crease and smudge a bit under the lower lash line. Finish it off by applying the contour shade across the crease.

I am in love with the new Sally Hansen Natural Beauty line with Carmindy. While I think you can find lots of great products  at drugstores I am usually not impressed with drugstore makeup. In general there is always some major component missing in the cheaper version and they seem to wear off so quickly. I was happy to find the new Sally Hansen line not only looks good but feels good going on an last all day! 

I am in love with the  eyeshadows the color contour kits are fun and easy and my eyes look great all day. With the affordable prices you can afford to add a great blush and lipstick to get a fresh look for fall!

Here are a few of my favorite products from the new line:

I am absolutely in love with the new Smashbox Jet Set Eyeliner in Navy Blue. The shade of blue is brilliant and makes my eyes pop the perfect fun shade that isn’t too bold for daytime. I love that it doesn’t move once I applied it the eyeliner stayed put without smudging  or fading until I washed it off.
