Favourite lip gloss’s for summer Monday, Aug 20 2012 

In the summer most girls like to have a fresh summer look, most go to the beach often and spend lots of time outside soaking up some rays. The sun can be harmful to lips as well as skin, it is important to protect your lips just as much as you would your skin. Most chap sticks do have spf in them now a days. I have a favourite Chapstick, which i just recently tried and starting liking, it was recommended by one of my friends. It is the Burts Bee’s  replenishing lip balm with pomegranate oil, with even gives lips a bit of colour as well as very nourishing.  It is a little pricey for a Chapstick but does what it says it does which makes it worth the purchase. When going to the beach, the best look is a natural, not so put together look, with beachy waves, little to no makeup. I recently was in NYC and was in a few Sephora’s and saw the Christian Dior  “Dior addict ultra gloss pearl 257” I had heard a lot of good reviews about this lipgloss, and I picked one up, a light pink.. looked at the price.. and put it down. I continued to walk around aimlessly and thinking about that lipgloss that I really wanted.. I ventured back over to the display picked it up again and put it in my basket.. and happily walked away. My first Christian Dior product.. sad.. I know but I finally got something. A must have for summer is the ever so popular Nars Lipgloss in orgasm , it suits everyskin tone and looks fantastic also feels luxious on the lips. Although a little pricey, it is soo worth it, Francois Nars has done an amazing job on creating these Cosmetic products to make girls feel sexy and sassy. Drugstore lip products can be just as good as the high end makeup brands, I was grocery shopping and wondered down the makeup Isle.. as I normally do just to see whats new , I stumbled upon some revlon lip products.. which revlon is mu favourite drugstore brand, I saw a revlon lipgloss that just caught my eye. I picked it up and the color of pink was gorgeous! I had to have it, the applicator is also really well designed, it is shaped to glide along your lips smoothly. The gloss color is exactly what it looks like in the tube, the color is peony.

Clinique 3 step skincare system Monday, Aug 20 2012 

The Clinique 3 step skincare system was developed by Dermatologist, and it is made for easy use. As it gives you the 3 steps to follow, it has a Cleanser, a toner and a moisturizer. For me I’ve been wanting to find a skincare routine that works for me, but didn’t really know where to start and which products I needed to use and in which order.  I was flipping through a cosmopolitan magazine and saw an ad for the Clinique 3 step skincare system, I looked it up and decided it was a good start as it gives you all 3 steps and how to use them. Also I went in the Clinique website and did the skin diagnosis test and it gave me options for my routine, which was really good.
Step 1) Using the clinique mild facial soap to cleanse skin and prepare it for the toner, the cleanser is a liquid soap that removes makeup, dirt, and sweat. Anything that has gotten into pores and will cause breakouts. How to use: (After makeup has been taken off with a makeup wipe) Wet face with water, pour a small amount of the cleanser into the palm of hand and rub together, then Rub all over the face avoiding the eye area, make sure to get right up to the hairline and also under the jawline as well, then rinse off with water. Pictures above

Step 2) The Clarifying lotion will help clear away pollution and dull flakes for smooth and healthy looking skin. It also reduces pores, and the skin can accept moisture better. The toner will help skin look healthier and younger, the formula is non-drying and comfortable.  How to use: Take a cotton pad or cotton ball.. or even your fingers and rub it all over your face after you have used the cleanser, will feel tingly.. but that is normal. Avoid the eye area and let it soak in, will dry fast on the skin. Picture below

3) Hydrating the skin is the last step in this routine to help the skin look fresh and healthy and stay looking young. It works to soften, smooth, improve the condition and texture of your skin. The lotion formula is for drier skins; oil-free Gel is perfect for oilier skins. I have heard the some people prefer the gel as it is less thicker than the lotion. picture below
This 3 step system is the easiest to use, it is straight forward and fairly priced. It is for all skin types and going on the Clinique website will help you pick out your routine for your skin type after you complete the skin diagnosis.
