Happy National Lipstick Day! To celebrate this fun day, let’s take a look at the six new lipstick hues from Perricone MD’s no makeup collection! There are six new exciting colors from the collection; Rose, Berry, Red, Cognac, Original Pink, and Wine. Original Pink is my favorite color from the collection, it’s perfect to wear now and into the fall season.

As we head towards fall, the new lipstick colors from Perricone MD are perfect to pick up now. Perricone MD lipsticks are packed with powerful ingredients such as hyaluronic acid which offer all-day hydration and neuropeptides which can visibly improve skin’s appearance. Love that!

Perricone MD lipsticks have also been boosted with mineral-based  broad spectrum SPF 15 which deflects harmful UVA and UVB rays. Love that too!

You can find the Perricone MD lipstick collection online here. Which color is your favorite?

Thanks for stopping by!

New in my summer beauty bag

Are you having a heatwave in your neck of the woods? It’s been low 90’s here all week! I am seriously melting away! Since I can’t spend all day, everyday, inside the swimming pool keeping cool, I need to ensure my skin is protected from the harsh sun; especially when it’s hot, and my kids want to be outside!

When Elizabeth Arden sent me a fun PR package filled with summer beauty essentials to test out, I was thrilled! I have been searching for a lip balm with SPF, and this one is fabulous! It feels like lipstick, but it’s a balm with SPF. That is really hard to find. I am so tired of gooey SPF products for lips, or products which are drying. It’s so hard to find something in between which moisturizes, protects and feels normal on the lips. Elizabeth Arden hit a home run with their SPF lip balm. It’s my newest summer beauty addiction! I can wear it alone, or under lipstick. Either way, it performs well. Love it!

I also want to give a shout-out to this eight-hour daily defense cream. It’s an amazing facial sunscreen with SPF 35 which I can wear alone, or under my face powder; I don’t wear foundation since I am acne prone. Speaking of acne prone, this sunscreen does not clog my pores or give me acne. That’s a key feature of something I put on my face since my face loves to break out. Love!

We still have two more months of summer, plus this weather will continue until October; at least here in the San Francisco Bay Area. That being said, summer beauty essentials with SPF are a must-have for right now, and for the months to come. What are your favorite SPF products for the summer season?

Thanks for stopping by!

Spring 2019 is here! How have I not posted my spring 2019 makeup must-have’s yet? Well, thankfully we aren’t too far into the spring season, so now is a great time to share my favorite makeup with you this season! If you have been reading my blog for awhile, many of these items will look like old hat to you. If you are new here, I hope you love my favorite beauty products too!

I will always standby my Laura Mercier caviar stick, foundation powder, and concealer. Chanel’s eye shadow quad’s, nail polishes, and blush colors are a longtime favorite too. Dior’s lipstick is a new one for me! I’m currently loving lipsticks from Chanel, Dior, and Almay. Estee Lauder is my go-to foundation; as always!

You can see everything I am using and loving this spring season in the widget below.
