Becoming Pearlessent

Vincent Longo Pearlessence Gel Stains A few weeks ago I mentioned how frustrated I was that I couldn’t find the new Vincent Longo Pearlessence Gel Stains anywhere. It was only this past Wednesday that I was able to finally get my hands on all of the shades for this new stain and they were mine at long last. From the moment the color touched my lips, it was love at first stain.

This product comes in three great shades: Bellini Love, Dolceacqua and Fresh Water Rose. I’m partial to Bellini Love and Fresh Water Rose, each one a different shimmery tone. The shimmer in this product is lovely on the lips but in a first for me, I liked the product even more when I applied it to my cheeks as a highlighter. Until now, I only used lip stains on my lips but no more.. I’m so glad these came along and made me change my mind. These new shimmering lip stains are a great convenient way to give yourself a long lasting glow this summer.

Another Year Gone By

I didn’t know that I would be taking such a long break from this blog when I published my last entry but that’s how it ended up working out, it’s just something that happened. However, I’m coming back now and what better way than to let you know about my favorite things for 2006? All the cool kids are doing it. 🙂

Favorite Things for 2006

Here are a few of my favorites products I discovered this year, my six for ’06…

perfectveil.jpg From the moment I smelled this perfume, it was love at first sniff. I love powdery scents and this is a great everyday scent for me. It features base notes of musk, vanilla and sandalwood. It also features top notes of lemon and bergamot. All of these notes work beautifully together. This scent has lead me to try more of Creative Scentualization’s perfumes and I’m already hooked. You can find Perfect Veil at La Creme Beauty.

Vincent Longo Lip and Cheek Gel Stain I’m all about low maintenance beauty and this is one of my all time favorite products. I only discovered it this year and it’s replaced every other lip stain I have. Cupid’s Breath and Liquid Kiss are my favorite shades, both are variations of red. The color of your lips can be as low-key or intense as you want it to be, this product provides great buildable color. You can find Vincent Longo’s Lip & Cheek Gel Stain at Sephora.

Philosophy's Soul Owner I can’t thank Colleen enough for mentioning this product to me. This product contains glycolic acid and actually exfoliates all the icky dead skin on your feet. Try slathering this on your feet and cover them up with some nice thick socks for a few nights straight and you’ll be amazed when you finally take a rasp to your feet. You can find Philosophy’s Soul Owner at Sephora.

Product Body Whipped Shea Butter This is the product that inspired me to try and make my own whipped shea butter. It’s the best I have ever tried… it’s not greasy, has a nice texture to it and smelled so good that I almost wanted to lick myself. You can find Product Body’s Whipped Shea Butter at Product Body.

Duwop Ice I seem to be drawn to highlighting products, this one was no exception. I love the lovely pink glow that this product gives my skin. In a sea of gold or silver based highlighters, a pink highlighter with hints of blue is a refreshing change. It’s opened my mind to other highlighting possibilities. You can find Duwop’s Ice at Sephora.

Urban Decay Eye Shadow Being a girl with a love for eyeshadow, I couldn’t leave this one off my list. I love everything about these eyeshadows… the bold colors, texture, pigmentation and presentation. What’s not to like? I cannot wait until new shades come out in spring, including new neutral colors. You can find Urban Decay’s Deluxe Eyeshadow at Sephora.

I’ll be back on January 1st with new product reviews and news on upcoming makeup collections including the new MAC Cosmetics Raquel Welch Beauty Icon collection. Until then, stay safe and Happy New Year!
