BECCA Under Eye Brightening Corrector

Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector

By now you have probably heard about the new BECCA Under Eye Brightening Corrector, yes? This is yet again another product I had been hearing a lot about online so I decided to try it out for myself. When I went to buy it on the Sephora site though, it was sold out. Then the next day it was back in stock so I quickly snatched it up!

Here is what they say about the paraben and fragrance free product:

This full-coverage crème corrector completely eradicates under eye darkness by brightening and evening skin tone. Truly unique in color and formula, BECCA Under Eye Brightening Corrector is backlighting for your concealer.Infused with ultra-fine light-reflecting illuminators, this rich, luminescent crème won’t settle into fine lines or wrinkles and preps skin for smooth, even concealer coverage.

It comes in a very pretty glass jar with a rose gold lid, which quite frankly is hard to resist!

Paula’s Choice Skincare – An Affordable, Luxurious Line!

Paulas Choice

If you haven’t heard of Paula’s Choice Skincare yet, listen up people, this stuff is good and affordable!

As I rapidly approach my 43rd birthday (which I cannot even believe since I still feel like I’m 23) skincare is definitely the most important thing to me in my beauty regimen. I’ve been super cautious about wearing sunscreen on my face for a good 20 years now, but in terms of a daily/nightly skincare program beyond that? I’ve never really had one. Basically all I was doing was using a combination sunscreen/moisturizer for the day and then at night I would slap on some over the counter retinol stuff and occasionally a moisturizer over that. It was all kind of ad hoc because I didn’t really know what I should be using and how to put it all together. Plus I am so lazy when it comes to beauty routines, I need someone to slap me and tell me what to do!

Enter Paula’s Choice. This is a company I have heard about for years and years now but never tried until 2 weeks ago. In fact the founder wrote a pretty popular book called Don’t Go To The Cosmetics Counter Without Me which is a very in-depth book about what works and what doesn’t when it comes to makeup/skincare, etc. They are cruelty-free, 100% fragrance free and have no added dyes in their products.

The Lipstick League Week of: 5.4.15

lipstickleague_large

Question of the Week: What are your thoughts about tightlining? Are you a fan? And if so, is it essential or just for special occasions?

My Answer: I am definitely a fan! I really dislike seeing any white space of skin between lids/lashes when people wear eyeliner, so I always do it if I wear it.

The Lipstick League Links of the Week:

we heart this – Summer is coming, Fekkai will make sure your hair is ready in it-girl like fashion.

Beautygeeks – It sucks that the US lacks the range of micellar cleansers that Canadians have. But Simple Cleansing Micellar Water IS sold in the States, it’s perfume-free — and you shouldn’t keep it in the bathroom.

Clumps of Mascara – butter LONDON has a new nail polish formula out. Woohoo! But is it worth the extra $3?

Gouldylox Reviews – Tired of nudes and not feeling the summer brights, either? Play with color and texture with this gorgeous palette from Smashbox instead!

Love for Lacquer – 18K Gold Plated Brushes?! Yes please! Make Mom feel LUXE this Mother’s Day with these gorgeous picks from b-glowing.com!

My Beauty Bunny – We dropped by The Organic Pharmacy for a Green Coffee Body Sculpting Treatment and went home with their Beauty Drops for glowing skin. Read why they are worth the splurge!

Friday Favorites: Books

Favorite Books

Happy Friday everyone!

I decided to do something a little different for Friday faves today. Rather than pick more makeup or nail polish to talk about I wanted to show you my favorite books of all time.

Considering my book collection is pretty large I actually didn’t have a hard time with this challenge. Most of these books have been my favorites for 30+ years now and they will always remain so. I have about a million other books I absolutely love as well, but I can’t list ’em all or we would be here all month long!
