There’s no better time than now, with New Year’s resolutions fluttering all around, to start a great skin regimen. Clinique Superdefense SPF 20 Daily Defense Moisturizer, $47, will hydrate with vitamins C and E, barley and wheat germ extract, soothe with sea whip and caffeine, and protect with SPF 20 that includes full UVA/UVB protection . The brand new product JUST became available at Clinique counters and online at Clinique.com in two skin type options of dry/dry combo and combo oily/oil skin.As quoted on BeautyHigh, one of my beauty resolutions for 2014 was to experiment with darker shades of lipstick, and upon seeing the shade “Fierce” by Red Apple Lipstick ($23.50 each), I knew it had to be on my must-have list! The brand itself certainly piqued my interest; a mineral-based formula and free of gluten, parabens, toxins, overall allergens, and soy, and Made in the USA, I like that the brand features real women wearing the various lipstick shades on the site, as well as provides application tips for a stellar pout.
I found each product to as opaque, yet moisturizing as expected, and the clear Rallye Balm ($15) truly felt luxurious sliding on! The brand has great customer service and a generous return policy (return up to six months from the purchase date), while products (also includes makeup brushes, lipgloss, liners, more) are exclusively available through Red Apple Lipstick’s website.
