Beam of Light

Rimmel Light Beam Lipgloss Rimmel has come out with a genious new lipgloss, Light Beam Lipgloss as part of their Underground collection. What is great about this lipgloss is that it features a mirror on the side of the vial and a light beam, right in the corner of the cap. No more trying to re-apply light gloss without proper light, this time the light it built right in. Packaging aside though, this lipgloss really has a great texture. It goes on smooth and isn’t tacky. It kept my lips soft the whole time, it felt like more of a lip balm than a gloss. The colors may look a little startling but give the shades a try, they are quite sheer once you put them on.

Healthy Couture

Tarte Natural Beauty Cheek Stain Tarte’s fall collection is named Health Couture because healthy skin is always in fashion. In August, Tarte is releasing an all natural version of their infamous cheek stains, a new collaboration with Borba and a fantastic palette. This stain is named Natural Beauty and it contains an antioxidant blend that includes blackberry, goji, acai, cranberry, pomegranate and currant. It has a natural scent derived from Cassis leaves and it also contains natural waxes and oils moisturize and hydrate skin. It’s preservative free and does not contain artificial coloring so this gives your skin a natural, sheer berry flush.

Tarte Inside Out Lipstick Move over lipgloss, Inside Out Lipstick is here. Just like the lipgloss, this lipstick feature’s Borba’s nutraceuticals so it’s actually good for you. It features Jojoba, shea butter and beeswax to moisturize lips, grape seed extract and vitamin C to accelerate production of natural elastin and a variety of other ingredients to soothes skin, strengthen capillary walls, reduce epidermal irritation and enhance skin’s clarity and radiance.
