Shu Uemura debuted the Art of Hair line this year, and included in the collection is the Satin Design White Tea Polishing Milk, a versatile leave-in meant to finish blow dried hair. Since I just got a brand new hair dryer, I was excited to try the product with a fresh blow drying.
I’m always looking for a great facial cleanser, and Biore Blemish Fighting Ice Cleanser does the trick in twenty different ways. It fights blemishes better than its Neutrogena or Clean and Clear counterparts, and the tingling icy feeling on your face is amazing. (As I’ve said before, I love products that feel like they’re doing something.) I pop this baby out right when I wake up in the morning, and it energizes and invigorates me.
I first tried Maybelline’s Age Rewind foundation just after I’d turned 22 and was not remotely in need of age-defying makeup. Five years later (yes readers, do the math), even after they added the eraser and the swirl and all that jazz, I’m still in love with the Nude Light #4 as something with nice coverage at the drugstore. I’ve tried far too many filmy Covergirl foundations in the past, so I rarely pick up base at the drugstore, but this one is amazing!
This foundation’s coverage is full and it feels creamy and rich, but blends out neatly without feeling too thick. The bottle is ingenious – its pump tip is by far the best solution to the gloppy foundation rims and overspill of product onto our counters we’ve all experienced. The color is perfect for my skin and blends out every flaw, which is surprising considering I didn’t try it on before I bought it.
Spoiler alert: this is going to be a rave review. Ultra-Gloss is my favorite lip gloss of all time. Here’s how much I love this gloss: I paid $23 for it, was made to throw it out at the airport during the “liquid” scare by security Nazis fine upstanding IAH employees just doing their job, and went back to Macy’s as soon as I got home to buy it again.
I am a huge Dior fan. It’s not only the high-end designer appeal, but also the lush girlishness of it; while Chanel’s packaging is simple and elegant in black and white, Dior opts for colorful, embossed cases with shine, and the Addict line is no exception.
