One-Step Hair Dryer and Styler

The Revlon® Pro Collection™ One-Step Hair Dryer and Styler ($49.99 USD) — combines  the power of a blow dryer with the precision of a styling tool, allowing you to dry, smooth and style hair simultaneously. This two-in-one powerhouse reduces styling time and delivers smooth, frizz-free results in half the time.

It also reduces heat exposure to minimize hair damage.  The lightweight, ergonomic design allows you to comfortably dry and style hair using just one hand to smooth out hard to reach areas, especially the back of the head where many people struggle to get smooth results.

I think this tools looks amazing!  Drying in styling in one step will save so much time.  I think it’s a fairly good price, too, for what you get.

Revlon Age Defying Spa Collection Foundation and Concealer

One of my New Year’s resolutions is to try out products that are supposed to, well, make me look younger. At forty, now’s the time to truly test-drive the products that are supposed to de-age me. This year I want to delve into the wide world of anti-aging skincare and makeup.
Last week I picked up the Revlon Age Defying Spa Collection Concealer($9.99 USD) and Foundation ($13.99 USD). This week, I have been using these products exclusively as my concealer and foundation.
Revlon’s website claims that these products, “instantly revitalize and brighten for radiant, flawless coverage and protect against fine lines”.  They contain, “Stone Therapy minerals that help energize stressed skin and Vitamin C fusion brighteners.”

That sounds very nice, but how does it wear? Well, I like these products okay, but they did settle a little into the lines around my eyes.
The foundation, though,  has a couple of great pluses to it. First it contains SPF 18 which is important for our aging skin.
Second, the brush applicator is really cool. I twist the base once, squeeze the tube, and the product comes out. I then twist it back to lock it while I am applying it. It takes about 3 squeezes to do my whole face. Ingenious.
The highlighter is in a slim pen shape and also has a brush applicator.  To dispense the concealer, I turn the base until it saturates the brush. I then swipe it on the areas I need it and blend with my finger.  
The shades I purchase are the concealer in 001 light and the foundation in 002 fair/light. The concealer color is perfect for my skin, but the foundation is a little dark and a bit orange for me. It would probably be a good shade for the summer, when my skin becomes a little darker (even with sunscreen).  
All in all, these are nice products and if you are interested, give them a try!

Lipstick Love for Fall

Glamorous. That’s how I feel when I wear a noticeable color of lipstick. Lip gloss can be natural and often sexy, but not glamorous like lipstick.

To me, fall is a naturally glamorous time. It is cooler, causing us to wear more clothes. I trade in my flip flops for boots and shoes with heels. And I wear more makeup.

I have been wearing lip gloss all summer long, and now I want a new lipstick to complete my fall looks. But which one? A nice drugstore brand like Revlon, A creamy MAC, or splurge on a Nars or Urban Decay? What do you think?

I mean really, what do you think? Below is a poll on your favorite brand of lipstick. If you don’t like any of the choices feel free to write one in and you can champion your favorite brand or shade in the comments section of this blog. I might just try your favorite!
