Lancôme Vernis In Love, Holiday 2016

press-samplePart of the Lancôme Paris En Rose holiday 2016 color collection are these three shades of Lancôme Vernis In Love nail lacquer.  One shade is such an amazing choice for a festive party!  The other two are perfect for the holiday, but subtle enough for office-wear.  I’m smitten with all three of them.  I’ve been really into gel manicures these days, but in the past I’ve had great wear time from Lancôme Vernis In Love, and let’s face it, during the busy holiday season that chip-free long-wear is critical!

The shadow formula contains hydrolyzed collagen, silk, peptides, and antioxidants to achieve this goal.  The palette also contains a generous 12 shades to enjoy: three oversized “eye foundation” shades to give you the perfect start, three nudes for a natural look, three neutrals to amp up a natural look with a bolder crease colors that go with anything, and three liners that can be used wet or dry to line and define your eyes, or to create a bolder look.

Lancôme Holiday 2016 Paris En Rose

press-sampleI love holiday makeup collections. Treating yourself to these festive cosmetics really make the mundane task of getting ready in the morning a bit more fun.  The Lancôme Holiday 2016 Paris En Rose collection is a perfect example of this special little twist.  The fabulous Lancôme La Palette Des Reves is housed in a shimmering case that looks like a clutch you’d carry  to a formal event.  Lancôme Petite Tresor Eyeshadow is housed in a glittering gold compact.  The three shades of Lancôme Vernis In Love are party-worthy and playful.  A dual-ended Lancome Le Duo Khol Eyeliner ensures that you’ll remember to add a gleaming highlight to your eye makeup look.  I’ve already raved about Lancôme Grandiose Extreme Mascara, and it’s curvy elegance is definitely holiday-worthy.

beauty blog, makeup blog, product reviews blog, beauty reviews blogAnyone with eyes can see the new Lancôme Grandiose Liner bottles are gorgeous.  Their curvy design and purple ombre purple color are eye catching enough to earn them prime real estate on your vanity.  What’s harder to spot is the genius of these little liner bottles.  The applicator brush is designed to pivot on a sphere, making it so much easier to apply liquid liner!  I’ve confessed in many posts that I am liquid liner challenged, so I truly appreciate the literal and figurative flexibility of this product.

IT Cosmetics Anti Aging Armour Review

press-sampleI first received IT Cosmetics Anti Aging Armour as part of a collection sent to me to announce the launch of IT Cosmetics at Sephora.  This product has since become one of my all-time favorite IT Cosmetics products, so I wanted to be sure to circle back and tell you more.  IT Cosmetics Anti Aging Armour is the ultimate multi-tasking sunblock.  It’s a broad-spectrum SPF50 block, that just to happens to be almost exactly the color of my skin.  Many SPF blocks can leave a pasty white film on the skin, but not this!  It delivers a medium-toned neutral shade at the same time it moisturizes and protects your skin!

I do have to tell you, however, that I informally polled my beauty blogging friends from fair to dark and they disagree with the assertion that this product works on every skin tone.  I will say that it’s basically a perfect match for my light to medium skin and evens my skintone like a champ.  Many days I even skip the foundation, this product is that good!  Want to know if the color would work for you?  I’d say give it a try if you wear light or medium IT Cosmetics foundation or CC cream.

Retail price is $38 per 1 oz. bottle. This cruelty-free product is also free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.

To purchase, you can CLICK HERE to shop ITCosmetics.com.  Other retailers include Sephora, Ulta, and QVC.
