Clinique Age Defense BB Cream SPF 30

March 26, 2012

Clinique Age Defense BB Cream SPF 30 ($37) Perfect and protect your skin with Clinique’s new Age Defense BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30. This multi-tasking BB Cream helps prevent the premature signs of aging with UVA/UVB and environmental protection while immediately concealing imperfections. Fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced using a unique complex of optics, and skin is soothed for a more youthful look. Additionally, this perfecting cream helps balance skin and provides oil and shine control to extend the life of foundation all day long. Clinique Age Defense BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30. Now available in three shades  for pink or golden undertones and appropriate for all skin types.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

Appropriate for all skin types, including delicate skins, this lightweight formula contains multi-polarized pigments to enhance skin’s complexion. It provides medium to full coverage to blur imperfections without being too heavy for a naturally flawless look. Skin looks more perfected and even-toned. Skin texture feels smoother and softer.

USAGE 

BB Cream is the ultimate multi-functional beauty product. It gives skin just about everything it really needs – protection, antioxidants for prevention and enough coverage to conceal imperfections. Apply BB Cream under makeup as a primer under foundation for a flawless looking finish. Wear BB Cream alone to achieve a natural, healthy looking glow. Apply a small amount all over the face avoiding the eye area. Remove with makeup remover.

THE TECHNOLOGY

  • Pigments such as Mica and Iron Oxides together with Polymethylsilsesquixane and Silica reflect light multi-dimensionally to conceal and correct imperfections. Provides colour correcting benefits for a brighter and more even skin tone. Additionally, the combination of pigments absorbs excess oil to ensure longwear and oil control, providing better adherence of foundation.
  • A combination of chemical sunscreens (Octinoxate, Octisalate, Abovenzone) absorb harmful UV rays and provide SPF 30 broad spectrum protection. Physical sunscreens (Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide) provide added protection by deflecting UVA and UVB rays. To prevent penetration and irritation, the sunscreens are encapsulated in a floating matrix so they are not in direct contact with the skin.
  • Potent antioxidant Vitamin E helps protect skin from environmental aggressors which can trigger the breakdown of collagen as a result from sun and environmental exposure.
  • Caffeine helps calm and soothe irritated skin while helping stimulate skin and visibly reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
  • Glycyrrhetinic Acid helps reduce skin irritation associated with internal and external stress.
  • A hydration complex of Trehalose, Carboxylic Acid and Sodium Hyarulonate enhances hydration, balances moisture and provides skin with comfort throughout the day.
  • Laminaria Saccharina Extract, derived from seaweed, helps reduce the excess production of oil.

L’Oreal Infallible 24 Hour Eyeshadow

March 16, 2012

L’Oreal Infallible 24 Hour Eyeshadow ($7.99) is ultra intense eyeshadow lasts a full 24 hours. This amazing velvety eyeshadow is waterproof, fade proof, and crease proof! The eyeshadow is a hybrid or a powder and cream eyeshadow that allows you to apply effortlessly and easily blend. The more shadow you pack onto your lids the more vibrant the colors become. I love these affordable shadows. If you have trouble blending colors this is prefect for you.

The only con is you need to make sure you tighten the lid and keep the plastic cover which prevents the shadow from drying out. Without the plastic lid it will be a lot harder to apply and blend. This shadow is best used with your fingers or a synthetic eyeshadow brush because of its “creamy” texture.
