I am LOVING Senna Cosmetics Totally Transforming Eye Shadow Primer. This anti-aging neutral cream eye shadow primer contains a potent vegetable ogliopeptide from natural hibiscus that functions in much the same way that Botox injections do, but without the pain and loss of facial expression!
It not only helps firm and smooth the eyelid while minimizing lines and wrinkles, it’s THE perfect concealer. It covers discolorations such as redness, darkness, or irregular pigmentation, and it stays on ALL DAY. And I’m one of those gals whose makeup mysteriously disappears as the day wears on. Well, Senna Cosmetics’ Eye Shadow Primer is what wears on…and on and on. I use the smallest dab under my eyes, around my nose and on those pesky blemishes, and it covers them beautifully — like nothing I’ve ever seen before. And I’ve tried just about every concealer on the market…usually I end up looking like a raccoon (um, too white) or an Oompa Loompa (yeah, too orange). This stuff is perfection. And it makes you look perfect.
As an eye shadow primer, it’s great, too. Eye colors look richer and more true, and they last longer.
To use, just apply after eye cream and before eye color. Smooth over the entire eyelid. May be used under and around the eyes and anywhere you need to ‘cover it up’ also, but use sparingly. A little goes a long way.
Summer’s almost over. Time to face a fading fall tan and then a pale winter. Or is it? Wanna keep your beautiful glow all year? Chances are you’ve tried self-tanners before. Maybe you found one you like. Most of us — me included — have not. I’m one of those gals whose fair skin doesn’t take well to self-tanners. I end up looking like a(n even more) ridiculous version of Lindsey Lohan, all orange and streaky. Well all that’s over.
I know I’ve been on a big L’Oreal kick lately, and guess what? It ain’t over. L’Oreal recently introduced their Sublime Bronze line, and I’m in love. My pale-skinned self can’t get enough of one self-tanner in particular, Luminous Bronzer. It’s touted as a lotion, but I’d call it more of a lotion-gel…or gel-lotion…whatever. It’s pretty awesome.
With light-reflecting “micro-particles” LB instantly illuminates your skin so you can SEE where you put it on, and then it gradually develops into a NATURAL-looking glowy tan — with NO STREAKS. To keep your skin healthy, Luminous Bronzer contains alpha-hydroxy acids to keep your skin soft and smooth along with vitamin E to provide anti-oxidant benefits to your skin. Plus it has a nice, fresh scent that’s invigorating but not overwhelming. At about $10 for a generous 6.7 oz. it’s a bargain indeed.
One thing to note: Luminous Bronzer does NOT contain sunscreen. Since it DOES contain alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), it can increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and the possibility of sunburn, so be sure to add a good layer of SPF 30 sunblock if you go outside after applying LB.
A quick note about a new L’Oreal haircare product: EverPure UV Protect Spray. As you know, color-treated hair requires special care, and this lightweight, non-sticky spray contains UV filters to help protect hair from the sun’s harmful rays and preserve long-lasting color purity.
A spritz or two on dry or damp hair, and your tresses are left healthy-looking and shiny. Infused with rosemary and mint for an invigorating, aromatic experience, UV Protect Spray provides you that extra bit of protection — heck, we slather our skin with SPF 30, but somehow we forget our hair. And when you’ve spent upwards of $175 on those precious highlights, you’d be crazy not to preserve them as long as possible, right?
FYI: All EverPure hair products are 100% vegan with no harsh, color-stripping ingredients. An exclusive Anti-Fade System features UVA & UVB Filters for long-lasting color purity.
