New from COVERGIRL – Natureluxe!

Taylor Swift will represent a new generation of luxury makeup, COVERGIRL NatureLuxe, launching in January 2011. The new line includes a Silk Foundation and a Gloss Balm, both delivering a perfectly polished look and a lightweight feel.  Swift’s COVERGIRL ads for NatureLuxe will appear beginning in January (but you can get a sneak peek here!). NatureLuxe Silk Foundation and Gloss Balm will be sold at drugstores nationwide.

Natureluxe Silk Foundation: Redefine natural beauty with their lightweight silk foundation. With a touch of cucumber water and a hint of jojoba and rose hip extracts, their light yet luxurious formula takes heavy weight out of your polished finish.

I tried this foundation, and I have to say, I was really impressed! It’s very light – and smooth, and when it has absorbed into your skin, it leaves it looking radiant! For a drugstore foundation, this was a wonderful surprise! Most foundation is so overpriced, it’s ridiculous! I love this new line!

Natureluxe Gloss Balm: Get the sheer color and shine of a gloss with the soft, lightweight feel of SPF 15 balm. Fortified with mango and shea butter, this feel-good formula leaves your lips feeling decadent and delicious.

I loooooooooooooooooooove these glosses! I might go out and buy 10 more. This awesome balm comes in 16 shades! It’s definitely worth trying, you won’t be sorry!

Can’t wait to see what else Natureluxe comes out with!

Introducing an awesome skincare line, Lily B!

Lily.B Skincare is SMART skin care designed specifically to help protect the skin and restore its natural health and balance. Loaded with natural protective antioxidants, skin nourishing and age defying ingredients, its perfect for skin that is past the acne phase but not quite ready for intensive anti-aging products.

Lily.B products work together to help improve the skin’s quality including tone, texture, clarity, and softness while protecting it from the harmful effects of environmental exposure….to sun, stress, pollution. Protecting your skin is the best defense against the early signs of aging.

Lily.B Skincare is skin friendly, meaning we do not use any skin irritating ingredients such as parabens. glycols, sulfates, fragrance or dye. Our skin care products are formulated with natural preservatives, are dermatologist tested but are never tested on animals.

I have tried three products from this line, and I love each one of them! As I’m in my 30′s I’m not really ready for all the heavy anti-aging products, but my skin is not as young as it used to be. So this line is a perfect fit for my skin!

I start off with Lily.B’s Facial Wash. Infused with the natural power of rose hip, Lily.B Skincare’s light foaming facial cleanser will gently yet thoroughly cleanse and tone your face, removing impurities including makeup, leaving your skin clean, clear, and soft. It’s awesome. ($28.50)

Next I used the Daily Moisturizer, which I was really nervous about. With my skin being sensitive to new products – I was nervous this would leave my skin oily. But I was so pleased to find that it’s really a great lotion! Formulated with nutrient-rich sea algae, providing vitamins, minerals and skin healing properties, along with nature’s own squalane and hyaluronic acid; Lily.B Skincare 24/7 DEFENSE is the best moisturizer to nourish, balance, and gently hydrate your over worked and under appreciated skin! ($49.50)

I haven’t had a chance to use the SPF lotion yet (no sun to speak of here) but I’m excited to use it come spring! Not your typical sunscreen! This hydrating, organic-based sunscreen is formulated for even the most sensitive skin. Titanium dioxide acts as a protective barrier against UVA and UVB rays while organic green tea, organic aloe vera, and organic sunflower extracts, soothe, nourish and protect the skin. ($22)

I’m in love with…Sebastian Hair Products!

‘Morning Glory’ leading lady, Rachel McAdams, looked stunning and sultry on the red carpet on 11/7 with tousled, textured hair styled by Sebastian Professional Stylist Design Team Member Thomas Dunkin. After collaborating with the makeup artist and wardrobe stylist on Rachel’s final look, Thomas chose to craft a sexy, voluminous coif with a punch of rock star glam as an unexpected and unpredictable anecdote to the star’s gray strapless dress.

To achieve this sexy rocker chic ‘do, Thomas shares a step-by-step how-to for the A-list actress’ style:

1. Saturate freshly washed hair with Sebastian Professional Volupt Spray for heat protection and touchably soft volume.

2. Rough dry with hands and blow-dryer lifting random sections while twisting hair in different directions until very nearly dry.

3. Place hair in very large Velcro rollers in a brickwork pattern for maximum root lift. Complete drying with a diffuser then allow the rollers to cool and set.

4. Remove rollers and apply a sparse amount of Sebastian Professional Matte Putty through the ends of the hair. Apply another blast of heat with the hair dryer to work up the hair’s texture by massaging the roots with finger tips.

5. Part the hair low so that a big section of fringe sits asymmetric and falls sensually over one eye. To exaggerate the style and build up the shape, set the style with Sebastian Professional Re-Shaper by spraying into the stream of hot air from the hair dryer.

6. Apply Sebastian Professional Matte Putty again loosening the look with your hands and defining the sections that give a disheveled but modern edge to the final look.
