beauty blog, makeup blog, product reviews blog, beauty reviews blogMakeup snobs, rejoice.  The Lancôme L-Absolu Rouge Lipstick is a luxe experience from the moment you remove the magnetically-charged lid to when you apply.  The color is intense and streak-free, and the finish is a demi-matte (a perfect start for the matte-o-phobics in the house).

The packaging is a very modern sleek black with striking gold accents.  We all like our lipstick tubes to be gorgeous, right?  Well, these fit the mark!  They feature a magnetic closure that ensures the lid snaps on correctly and stays on in your purse.

Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Definition Lipstick 388 and 285 Swatches

Le Magenta is a deep flash of pink, and Le Sepia is a deep red. On the Lancôme website, Le Sepia is pictured much differently!  Not sure why the disconnect there…  I’m not one to wear red lipstick regularly, but 285 is a forgiving shade, so I keep it front and center in case the mood strikes me!  Le Magenta is a perfect shade for easing into Spring, a gorgeous pop of tulip-inspired color!

Retail price is $30.50 per lipstick. Six shades are available.

Retailers include Lancome-usa.com, Nordstrom.com, NeimanMarcus.com, Bloomingdales.com, and Saks.com.

Aveeno Gentle Scent

Aveeno Gentle Scent

Aveeno Gentle Scent

beauty blog, makeup blog, product reviews blog, beauty reviews blogAvenno recently launched their “Gentle Scent” collection, and they couldn’t have sent it to a better person. In recent years I’ve become very sensitive to scent, particularly artificial lab-created fragrance. As a result, I’ve started to opt for fragrance-free items more frequently. The Aveeno Skin Relief Gentle Scent collection is lightly scented, but specifically with the sensitive-skinned in mind. This soap-free, dye-free formula has been allergy tested. This sensitive-skinned gal simply loves it. It leaves the skin feeling clean and lightly moisturized, not tight, itchy, or uncomfortable.

Body Wash retails for $6.49-7.49 for a 12 fl. oz. bottle. Lotion retails for $8.99-9.99 per 12 fl. oz. pump bottle.

Retailers include Walmart, CVS,

beauty blog, makeup blog, product reviews blog, beauty reviews blogNot that you’re the violent type, but if you were to hold a gun to my head and force me to tell you what my favorite Estee Lauder choices are, it’s simple. Foundation, foundation, foundation.  Well late last year, Estee Lauder launched yet another foundation favorite.  The new Double Wear Makeup To Go product features liquid foundation in an innovative compact design.

To apply, simply rress the button to dispense some product, and then use the included sponge!  It quite literally can’t get any easier than that!  At home, I use my foundation brush to apply.  The pan is also great for mixing, if you want to add in a highlighter or mix with your own moisturizer.  This product isn’t just practical, it’s downright fun!

Double Wear Makeup To Go is available in 20 shades, and boasts a formula more moisturizing than the original Double-Wear Stay-in-Place foundation.  The result is a youthful, dewy, long-wearing finish.  I’m quite smitten, and I’m betting you will be as well!

Retail price is $45 per compact.
