I kicked off last week with a celebration of mark.’s 10th anniversary, with current mark. brand ambassador Lucy Hale (of TV show “Pretty Little Liars” fame). If you are familiar with Avon but not mark., the brand, through its m.powerment initiative is to break the cycle of dating abuse and partner violence with a portion of proceeds from select items going to the education and prevention programs. Both fashion and beauty items are available through the mark. brand’s website, with some FABULOUS jewelry and footwear options currently available that I have my eye on!
e.l.f. time!! New products have arrived that are the definition of good bang for your buck! The new trio of items from e.l.f. (eyes, lips, face)are the HD Mattifying Cream Foundation (available in six shades; $6) which is lightweight, perfect for normal to oily skin and minimizes lines, the Acne Fighting Foundation (also available in six shades; $6) conceals, heals ans soothes skin with witch hazel, camphor aloe and tea tree, and the Studio HD Lifting Concealer (available in six shades; $3) with vitamin C, green tea and mulberry to minimize and prevent fine lines and imperfections.
Skintimate brought me into its celebration of new Signature Scents Moisturizing Shave Gels ($2.79 for the 7 oz bottle; Raspberry Rain only available in a 2.75 oz can for $1.99) yesterday with a colorful (and flavorful) box of the delicate dessert du jour, macarons, from Maison Lauduree in NYC and three of its newest offerings. There’s a scent for every desire, with fragrances including Luscious Kiwi Splash, Jasmine Meadows, Flirty Mango, Strawberry Tangerine Twist, Tropical Splash, and Raspberry Rain. Each bottle includes 11 moisturizers, vitamins (B5, E) and an antioxidant to protect, hydrate, and smooth. Plus, it’s great timing, as even though the summer is ending (boo!!!) sleek, shaved legs are ALWAYS in season! Good timing too, as my brand new Schick Quattro for Women Disposables Limited Edition Floral Razor Pack for sensitive skin (with two hypo-allergenic aloe formula conditioning strips; $7.39 for a 3-pack) was starting to get VERY lonely in the shower!
