Prescriptives Mineral Color
Prescriptives is adding color to its mineral portfolio with the introduction of NEW Mineral Color for Face, Eyes and Lips. The purity and natural benefits of minerals are now offered in a vibrant color collection inspired by nature’s own minerals and gems. Its star ingredient is the R.E.C. (Radiance Emitting Crystals) complex — a unique combination of Amethyst, Rose Quartz and Calcite — so it absorbs light and delivers radiance and luminosity so skin appears to be “glowing from within.” Bright gems and minerals infused with vitamins create a look that is healthy, luminous and breathtaking.

I wore this look yesterday to have lunch with my mom and sister My mom seemed to really love this look on me — she said everything just complemented each other. She rarely comments on my makeup, so maybe there’s something to what she said, ha!

Kings & Queens is a body care line I’ve seen carried at Nordstrom, but the price of their products isn’t what you’d expect from Nordstrom. Seriously, if I can get out of Nordstrom without spending $100+, it’s been a very good day! They’ve just created a set of their awesome shower gels for guess what… $8! Yes, eight bucks! (And yes, I know it’s cheaper by the oz. to purchase one shower gel alone, but who doesn’t like to try scents out to find the one you really love first?)
Anyway, Kings & Queens is also carried at other major retailers like Beauty.com (which is where you can find this set). I absolutely adored the scent of Sultan of Granada (as did my boyfriend, who I think ended up using most of it). This is a great way to try other scents without breaking the bank. Plus, I’m sure some of you will be traveling soon enough with summer just a few months away, and each showergel in the set is 1 oz., making them totally travel-friendly.
