Starting at number five...
5. This product is THE BOMB...
Ever heard of TheBalm? "The brand is fun and nostalgic—perfect for women of all ages," says CEO, Marissa Shipman. TheBalm's famous formulas and fabulous reputation has won the brand fans all around the world! But, the product I'm talking about is TheBalm to theRescue, a vegan lip treatment. WAIT, HOLD UP... what is vegan mean specifically? Vegans are not in favor of ingredients that come from animals. Therefore, no animal bi-products are used in TheBalm to the Rescue lip balm! Hooray!
GET THIS: all proceeds from this soothing lip balm are donated to Pug Rescue, which saves dogs from euthanization and helps them get love, support, and a loving family! Purchasing this lip-conditioner for only $14 must feel really good!
4. I want this because the word "Deco" sounds incredibly cool.
Christopher Kane has designed lip gloss tubes for LANCOME! That is pretty cool and even more so because each tube from the Juicy Tubes collection features one of the designer's deco-inspired illustrations and a shade inspired by his global travels, like Red Hot New York!
The Juicy Tubes World Tour includes gloss flavors such as Rio Mango, Tokyo Plum Blossom, and Fifth Avenue Frosting! These tubular artsy tubes by Kane are limited edition so RUN to Sephora and grab one for $18! Be worldly, be different- be the first of your friends to arrive at work, school, or shopping wearing "Copacabana Coffee" Lancome lip gloss designed by Christopher Kane. Ooh-la-la!
3. Hard-working women from the late 1800's--- scratch that. Acne-fearing womenfrom the PAST would faint in the presence of... the Clarisonic Skincare Brush!
This amazing, mechanical tool uses sonic technology to clean your skin efficiently. Actually, the Clarisonic brush is twice as effective as normal face washing routines. With 300 movements per second, it reduces fine lines, wrinkles, and blemishes! People are going nuts for Clarisonic! Why? It removes makeup six times better than traditional methods and is a gentle approach to clear, glowing skin!
This product is recommended by leading dermatologists, cosmetic surgeons, spas and estheticians. *Gasp*, this is a dream product!- but this luxurious way to achieve perfect skin doesn't come cheap. The Clarisonic Skin Care System comes with a $195 price tag. Right now, there is a PiNK Clarisonic cleaning system and ten dollars from every purchase goes to support funds against breast cancer. How nice! The pink Clarisonic is limited edition, so if you are thinking of getting one of these modern luxuries, get up and grab one so you can: "glow and go!" (I want one of these! In fact, I saw it at a Spring Trend show this year and have heard wonderful things about it. If you aren't skilled at the washcloth and soap method and have an extra $200 to spend... if it is worth it to you... buy it!)
2. The Beauty Sponge
Ladies, the Beautyblender Sponge is a must have for looking flawless, whether you are at a party or getting an education at school, this sponge ROCKS! You don't need a makeup artist to look like a movie star. The sponge's suede texture reaches hard-to-blend spots and softens your makeup. Don't worry, Beautyblender is latex free, non-allergenic and odor free! I love the egg shape of the sponge. There is also a cleanser for the egg to remove makeup. You can get the Beautyblender Sponge for as low as $18.50.
1. Here's number one...
This Allure magazine winner is water-proof, kiss-proof, and oil-free. The Becca Beach Tint is a blendable lip stain for cheeks and lips. Rachel Bilson, among many others, use Becca Beach Tint to achieve a natural flush. It comes in delicious SCENTS: Summertime watermelon and sweet peach! I am dying to try Becca Beach Tint out THIS SUMMER! It won't make you feel like you're wearing any makeup and does not dry out skin. Even BLISS (New York's Hottest Spa) recommends it for $22. Try it out, and tell me what you think :)
