A nod to India is such fabulous inspiration for a collection of nail polish hues, don’t you think? The essie resort 2016 collection goes in that direction of four curated colors (from left to right) delhi dance, taj-ma-haul, going guru, and nama-stay the night, which bring modern jewel tones and spiced shades to your nails. Retailing for $8.50 per bottle, you’ll find these at essie.com as well as at fine salons and beauty destinations nationwide.
I’ve been wearing my new Niemeyer blue tortoiseshell eyeglasses from the Zenni Optical Metropolitan Collection pretty much non-stop this past month, and now that the weather is becoming warmer, a nice pop of color on my lips is a beautiful, added contrast to the look. The Sephora Rouge Balm SPF 20 in Gentle Coral is not only adds a perfect pop of peachy coral, but just like the Zenni takes care of my vision, this creamy gel balm does so for my lips with a SPF 20 wax concentrate, yuzu extract, and a vitamin E derivative to nourish and protect. Plus,this new addition to the Sephora Collection of makeup comes in eight different color options with packaging that reflects the shade found inside of the tube. If you’re more in the market for new eyeglasses than a tinted balm, check out Zenni Optical‘s stylish silhouettes, that start at as low as $6.95 (yes, that’s right!) for frames AND lenses!
[The Venus Snap Razor, featured in the cosmo pink shade]
Isn’t this just the cutest thing? I’m definitely a sucker for super cool packaging, and as darling as the Venus Snap Razor might be, its five blades and water-activated Ribbon of Moisture make it just as efficient and reliable as a long-handle version. It comes in a portable compact that so that traveling with this mini portable razor is a breeze, and the blades are interchangeable with Venus Embrace refills. Pick one up at national food and drug retailers at a suggested retail price of $9.99-$12.99.
I very much prefer regular polish to gel, but won’t argue against the fact that regular polish could make me happier if it lasted longer, was chip-proof, and secured a bit more of a shine to it. So yeah, basically if it was like gel! I was introduced to LONDONTOWN‘s fabulous array of polishes recently, which are great in and of themselves, however the brand’s new Gel Genius Top Coat fulfills my regular polish fantasies by kicking up the attributes and benefits quite a few notches. The unique thing about this quick-drying top coat is that it’s activated by natural light, making the polish fortified and more chip resistant every time nails are “charged” in the sun, which can lead to up to 10-days of incredibly glossy shine. There’s also nutrients involved; rapeseed flower oil, which possesses a lot of Vitamin E, is infused into the formula for its emollient and antioxidant properties. I know it sounds too good to be true, but it’s 100% real, and simply put, just GREAT! The Gel Genuis Top Coat retails for $20, and can be purchased at the LONDONTOWN’s website.
The mark. Windswept Collection is a great introduction to the new spring season with a scent that encompasses a sparkling grapefruit orchid essence and cedarwood. Priced from $6-$12, you can layer the scent for the ultimate lasting effect with each mist, cream, body wash, body butter and hand cream that you use.
Increasingly, I don’t like to blow dry and style my hair without having something protecting it from the heat, and the Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Treatment Primer is the next supreme level of protection and prevention. Your hair is kept safe from the heat (up to 450 degrees), reduces the amount of time needed to blow dry (my favorite attribute!), and seals the hair follicle in order to prevent breakage. The primer is the first base of products that you apply to damp hair, and you can layer your other products on top of it for your specific styling needs, just like you would with a face primer. Retailing for $24, you can pick it up at Redken-authorized fine salon, spa, and beauty destinations nationwide.
