My Beauty Favorites — Week of April 25-May 1, 2016

We have had a stormy, rainy week in Kansas City!  It looks like this week should be a lot warmer and sunnier.  You never know what type of weather you will have here!

And like our varied weather, I love to try all sorts of different types of beauty products!  This week I was send a gorgeous lip oil in a fun shaker, luxe skincare and beautiful hair care to review.  These are what I am loving this week:

Lancôme Juicy Shaker
Lancôme Juicy Shaker

Lancôme Juicy Shaker ($21 USD) –Shake it up with the latest innovation: Juicy Shaker’s bi-phase technology delivers the first pigmented lip oil with 2 distinct phases. The first phase is a transparent oil phase for a comfortable non-sticky shine. The second is the pigment phase for a shot of color. Shake Juicy Shaker like a cocktail shaker to mix the pigments and oil. The cushion applicator enhances application by delivering the perfect ‘shot’ of addictive non-sticky shine and a sheer tint of color to your lips that is simply irresistible.

The cocktail blend of 5 nourishing oils treats your lips like a lip balm. Peach kernel oil; a well-known emollient softens lips while Sweet Almond oil conditions and Cranberry oil provides rich anti-oxidant properties. Muscat Rose oil is rich in essential fatty acids and helps to soothe lips. So addictive, you won’t be able to resist applying it over and over.

What I think:  I have been loving lip oils this year.  I like how they moisturize, give shine and some color. I have few different brands, but was so excited to try this one!  I received it in 300 Lemon Explosion (above), a sheer pink and 102 Apri-Cute, a pigmented coral. These are gorgeous one, great for a fun pop of color that is very good for the lips!  I might have to pick up some more!

NASSIF MD Bio-Rhythmic Skincare Dawn to Dusk Cleanser ($35 USD) — This foaming cleanser is the perfect start to our skin care system. The jojoba and ivory palm seed spheres instantly rid the skin of dead cells and surface impurities, revealing a glowing and radiant skin that’s primed for intense nourishment and treatment.

NASSIF MD Bio-Rhythmic Skincare CLOCK PM Night Serum ($110 USD) — In accordance with the skin’s nocturnal biorhythms, our night time serum is full of beneficial mega complexes for the rejuvenation, detoxification and recovery of skin during our rest phase.

What I think: These products are fantastic in fighting pollutants on our skin. The cleanser exfoliates so well, skin is soft and clear after used.  The claim is that the serums sync with our biorhythms.  I don’t know if that’s true, but they do sink into the skin quickly and leave it with a nice glow.  Wonderful for use under your favorite moisturizers!

What I think:  This kit is so luxe!  I loved using it, it came with everything and more I needed to color my hair — including color-safe shampoo and conditioner, a hair cap and wipes to remove color from skin.  My hair was soft, shiny and gorgeous after used.  I chose Napoli Brown – 5NGV.  My hair is dark brown, and this had golden highlights which is so pretty.  It comes in 32 shades.  Do the quiz on the website and you will find an amazing color!
