**THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. CONGRATULATIONS TO WINNER, MARCY STRAHAN**
Hey Beauties, over the last couple of months, I’ve been testing quite a few beauty products that are worth raving about. And, I couldn’t wait to give you another installment of latest beauty products that I’m totally bragging about.
Secret Outlast Sport Fresh
Normally, I wouldn’t use Secret antiperspirant deodorant because I hate the scent that is activated once I really start sweating. It’s just an annoying fragrance that normally triggers a headache regardless of the scent I select. It’s like that bad after taste you get from eating something unfavorable. To avoid it all, I usually only use Degree antiperspirant deodorant. BUT, the brand, which was one of the World wide partners of the Olympics, launch their Outlast line that claims a 48-hour odor protection that outlast your day. The Sport Fresh scent is clean and pleasant. So, this one goes on my fave beauty product list.
Lite N Glossy
While at BlogHER12, I found Lite N Glossy — an all natural lip gloss that features a built in mirror and LED application light, which lasts up to 100 hours. This gloss is fab and should be included in any beauty junkie cosmetic bag. While in a dark Harlem lounge, I was able to add my gloss perfectly with the light and side mirror. The gloss also comes in fun colors like Party Girl Pink and Brown Frost and Glamorous. Score!
Lumene Finland Pure Radiance Day Cream
So, I must admit, I have some hypochondriac behaviors. I don’t think I am always sick, but I am the type of person who self diagnose and always think I will catch something. Last week, I discovered the fine lines around my eyes and polled my friends to ask if they thought this 30-year old needed Botox. So now, I am trying Pure Radiance Day Cream from Lumene. It has Vitamin C in it and protects skin against harmful effects of the sun. I just started using the cream, so I have no idea if there is any change, but it feels lovely on the skin. I have comfort in knowing this is a preventive measure.
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream
Speaking of day cream, I also started my preventive anti-aging measure by using night cream. This one from Neutrogena is a moisturizing cream that you apply only at night and it’s proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots.
AMBI Even & Clear Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30
I recommend this moisturizer to everyone. I love it because it’s really light weight and not oily. It absorbs into my skin wonderfully. This Even & Clear line from Ambi evens skin tone and texture. It also has soy, Vitamins C & E.
Covergirl Blastflip Stick
This blendable lip duo is awesome. Each stick comes with two shades (see above photo) that are beautiful on their own but can also be blended to make a third shade. Each shade is lovely on its own, but a girl like me likes to layer — expecially if you like a frosted look. Every beauty maven that I showed this magic stick to was super excited about the combo.
Murad Skin Perfecting Primer Matte Finish
I have always had oily skin. So, I was stoked about the chance to review this BB cream/ hybrid primer. I have been using it for the summer in lieu of my foundation. Let me tell you, I am in love and may continue to use this in place of my foundation even in the cooler months. A little goes a long way and it blends into my skin perfectly. My skin looks amazing since trying this product. Even after an eight-hour work day, my skin still has a dewy finish. At first glance, the primer is a little light for my skin tone, but it features adaptive shade technology along with a slight tint that evens out your skin tone. Awesome!
