Philosophy for Summer 2009 – Beach Party & Surfer Girl

Philosophy for Summer 2009

I saw these new Sephora exclusives the other day, and I had to share. I am all over these! Shower gels? Lip shines? YES, I think so!

Philosophy Unconditional Love Eau de Toilette for Beachy Days

Unconditional Love Eau de Toilette Spray (1.7 oz. for $40) is the latest fragrance release from Philosophy, which you may know because I absolutely adore their lip shines and shower gels. Unconditional Love is a mix of blackberries and vanilla–it’s a sweet, slightly food-y scent. I expected it to be cloying, too sweet to bear, but it’s a light scent with just enough sweetness to make it a comforting scent. I’d say it’s almost a heavier version of Philosophy’s Falling In Love, and it does remind me a bit of Stella, too.

Philosophy’s Candy Hearts Duo Review

Philosophy’s Candy Hearts Duo ($20.00) consists of Pink Bubbly and Angel Food Cake Flavored Lip Shines. Flavored Lip Shines usually go for $12 a pop, but these two aren’t available for individual purchase, though buying together does save you $4. There’s something about Philosophy’s keen ability to flavor/scent their products just as they’re described that makes me want to collect ’em all. I collect (but I still use ’em!) their shower gels and these lip shines.

Philosophy “The Holiday” Cookbook for Holiday Showers

Philosophy “The Holiday” Cookbook ($35.00) features six 2 oz. bottles of Philosophy’s popular three-in-ones. Each is scented differently, but all can be used as a shampoo, shower gel, or a bubble bath. Who doesn’t appreciate a product that multi-tasks? And in my shower, a product that can do three things will definitely earn a spot to call its own! I’m a huge fan of Philosophy’s shower gels (3-in-1s, whatever!), because they lather SO, SO richly and luxuriously! I’m all about being able to work up a good lather, and any shower gel that can’t do that doesn’t past muster with me. Thankfully, Philosophy has yet to disappoint me when it comes to their formula!

Philosophy Red Velvet Cake Lip Shine is a Fat-Free Treat!

Philosophy’s Red Velvet Cake Lip Shine ($12.00) is one of Philosophy’s flavors for the holiday season. It smells very chocolaty, but almost like a spicy chocolate (though not too spicy!). It gives a smidgen of color (it deepens your natural pigmentation), lots of gloss (duh), and it’s a great way to keep your pucker look kissable without sticky gloss or rich lipstick. I find that the lip shines just work really well when I have down time or I’m just running errands. I mean, you just can’t kiss your boyfriend with lipstick and lipglass on–for one, mine doesn’t want all that on his lips; and second, it’ll still mess up my perfect color combination anyway!

Philosophy’s Under the Mistletoe Set for Super Glossy Lips

Philosophy’s Under the Mistletoe Trio ($28.00) consists of three delicious lip shines. You get Gingerbread, Spicy Pear Cobbler, and Orange Cranberry Spritzer–and all three smell exactly like their names. Don’t let Spicy Pear intimidate you, because it doesn’t actually make your lips look green! It gives them a lovely high shine finish with a touch of golden-green tint that doesn’t look unnatural. Think MAC’s Spring Bean lipglass in terms of actual application. Lip shines are ridiculously glossy; they definitely give your lips a high shine finish. This little trio makes a perfect stocking stuffer, too 😉
