Spring Product Wishlist

There are some really cool new products to dip into this spring.  Below is my current wishlist.  I haven’t yet tried these products, but I can’t WAIT to. 

1)  Cargo’s Plant Love Lipsticks:  The product development team at Cargo has clearly watched "An Inconvenient Truth" and responded to Al Gore’s call by creating a botanical lipstick with a 100% biodegradeable tube.  So forward thinking!

2)  Tarte’s "Inside Out" Vitamin infused lipgloss.  Women accidentally eat their lipstick/gloss so often– it’s about time someone made it good for our health!  Tarte teamed up with Borba to develop a gloss that actually contains the vitamins you need, so every accidental lick is good for your health.

3)  Lorac’s Cheekstamp.  A cylindrical shaped blush with a sponge applicator.  A genius method to target the apples of the cheek!

4)  DermaDoctor’s "Physical Chemisty".  This home microdermabrasion system can actually tell when your skin has had enough, therefore preventing irritation.  What good is removing old, dead skin cells if you’ll only be unveiling irritation?

Estee Lauder Gift With Purchase

Macy’s is currently offering a 4-piece gift with any $50 Estee Lauder purchase while supplies last.  Free shipping is provided if you enter in promo code LAUDERODS during checkout.

Chanel Pro Lumiere Foundation

Beauty, Beauty Blog, Beauty Blogger, Makeup, Cosmetics, Product Reviews, Makeup Reviews, Raging Rouge, My friendly neighborhood Chanel representative insisted that I sample a different foundation the last time I was in for an "express" makeup.  I normally don’t tinker with my usual regimen, but let her give the Pro Lumiere a spin.

While it is a bit heavy for everyday use (I’m particularly suspicious anytime I see skin that looks too perfect), this foundation is ideal for a night out or an event.  My skin looked completely, utterly, flawless while this was on.  It was shockingly porcelain.  Had it existed, I certainly would have selected this to wear on my wedding day.

Bag Borrrow or Steal

For the woman who absolutely HAS to have the latest “it” bag (or hell– she needs to have access to ALL of the latest “it” bags), this online shop is a must see. 

The story is this– you pay a monthly “rent” for access to the hottest bags.  They are guaranteed to be in like-new condition, and you can borrow several at the same time.  If you absolutely MUST keep a bag, you have the opportunity to buy it directly from Bag Borrow or Steal (at a reduced rate).  If not, just return it so that the latest bag of your choice will be shipped to your doorstep.  LOVE this concept!

From now until March 15th, 2007, all new memberships are 15%  off if you enter SHINE01 as your promotional code during registration.

Product Packaging

Admit it, you’ve bought product before just because of how it looks in its packaging.  Maybe it looks great on your vanity, or maybe you just want to be seen carrying it around… but it visually captured you and dragged you to the register with credit card in hand.
