My Beauty Faves Week of February 16-22, 2015

I have been watching the Oscars, and all of the ladies look gorgeous! It is important to choose great skincare, makeup, nail care and fragrances to pull of glam – and everyday – looks.

This week I am loving a fab skincare and foundation set, skincare for my nails and a fresh fragrance:

Glossier Phase 1 Set
Glossier Phase 1 Set

Glossier Phase 1 Set ($80 USD) — Glossier is resetting the beauty game, starting with the most important thing: a perfectly primed canvas. This is skincare as makeup—a mist, moisturizer, balm, and tint, designed to work together to perfect (not conceal!) skin while requiring minimal effort on your end. All you need are your fingertips.

Products included from left to right in photo (and my opinion of them) are:

Perfecting Skin Tint: This light foundation evens out discoloration and leaves your face looking toned, smooth, and dewy. The breathable, ultra thin formula auto-fits to skin, making application as simple as throwing on moisturizer. It is very sheer, like a liquid, but you can build it to a medium coverage.  I like it, but it is a bit sheer for me (I need my coverage).  I think it is perfect for those who want to showcase their good skin.  Comes in three shades.

Balm Dotcom: A hydrating, long-lasting, do-everything skin salve that’s packed with antioxidants and natural emollients to nourish and repair dry, irritated skin. The dense, waxy texture stays in place to seal in moisture wherever it goes. I like to use this on my cuticles and as a lip and face balm when it is very cold out.

Soothing Face Mist: This spritz is made with roses and aloe to hydrate, soothe, and leave you feeling fresh and awake, prepping your skin for the Priming Moisturizer. Also excellent as a makeup refresher and midday pick-me-up.  I love the sweet, floral scent and how refreshing it is.  I loving using this facial spray before my moisturizer as it hydrates my skin.

Priming Moisturizer: This moisturizes, creates an even texture and helps with redness. This comforting cream allows you to layer and build up to the perfect amount of moisture depending on climate, season, or how your skin’s feeling on any given day. I like how moisturizing this is.  It is more of a moisturizer than a primer, but it does help even out skin, getting it ready for foundation.

Love2Love Jasmine and Sparkling Mimosa ($9.98 USD) — Inspired by a spectrum of colors that express a woman’s joy and sheer happiness, each scent speaks to the woman who loves the idea of being in love. These four fragrances were designed the capture a stylish duo of ingredients that reflect perfect pairs in love:


  • LOVE2LOVE Fresh Rose + Peach: This luscious scent opens with juicy notes of pear nectar and fresh caccis buds, evoking joy and optimism. Bulgarian rose oil infused with geranium infuses innocence and femininity, while musk and orris blend at the base bringing a dose of comforting warmth and tenderness to the fragrance.
  • LOVE2LOVE Jasmine + Sparkling Mimosa: Lighthearted and fresh, this fragrance represents the spirit of a radiant, carefree woman. The youthful and energetic blend of dewy peony and sparkling mimosa mingles with intoxicating jasmine and sweet pea join with warm rosewood and almond blossom at the base to wrap you in a veil of sensuality.

  • LOVE2LOVE Orange Blossom + White Musk: A refreshing cocktail of sparkling bergamot and juicy orange notes opens this fragrance, followed by soft peony at the heart to create a feminine element. The trace of orris and white musk add a sensual aspect to the fragrance.

I have a sample of this in the Jasmine and Sparkling Mimosa scent.  It is fresh and sweet, like juicy fruit — a perfect spring scent.  And, it is light so you can spritz it on the body, or in your hair.  Very nice and so affordable!
