Estee Lauder Citron Kiss Pure Color Lipgloss ($22.50 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a gold shimmered gloss that has virtually no color, just soft, pale yellow gold shimmer and a glossy shine. MAC Moth to Flame looks similar on, though it’s less golden and more beige. Bobbi Brown Coral Sand is more orange. MAC Gold Dust is less yellow. Really, any sheer gold-shimmered gloss will do. I’m surprised I couldn’t think of something dead-on similar. A gloss like this isn’t useless, it’s just not the type of gloss that most want ten of, because you can’t really see the nuances within it since there is not much to the base color.
Guerlain Terra Azzurra Bronzer & Blush ($75.00 for 0.56 oz.) is made up of half bronzer and half blush. The collection is a collaboration with Emilio Pucci, and the print chosen was “Winter Capri.” I really liked that Guerlain changed up the compact’s cloth case, and it’s a very appropriate print for summer. It’s bold, vibrant, but has that summery, beachy breeze feel. It’s definitely more interesting than the velvety pouches we typically see.
I’m not a person who relaxes easily or often. I have to schedule relaxation, and for me, it’s even better when I’m able to kill two birds with one stone by getting a massage. It’s a set time, both when and for how long, where I have no choice but to lay there, breathe deep and slow, and enjoy.
bareMinerals bareMinerals The Alter Ego Eyeshadow Duo ($20.00 for 0.10 oz.) won’t be available until May, but hang onto your seats, because it’s such a lovely duo. This is one of the best eyeshadow formulas on the market, and bareMinerals didn’t let us down with their expansion of their Ready line-up. Alter Ego consists of two shades: Wicked and Daring.
