Guerlain Météorites Powder
When I started working for a major cosmetic company a few years ago, I was introduced to one of the best things in my life I would not otherwise have wanted to try. I was training with a Guerlain representative and she told me about Météorites Powder For The Face. What it is, is an illuminating powder that delivers pure radiance. Pure and simple. When I heard her say the word "illuminating" I was ready to pass on this powder, because I thought I would have glitter, shine and sparkle all over my face, but I was very wrong. Not only does this make your complexion glow, as if you have your own personal lighting team that follows you around to make sure you look radiant all day, but it also gets rid of shine when you need it to. It was inspired by light and created by Guerlain, which is one of the oldest and most trusted brands on the market, so I have always trusted everything they have ever made. "Météorites Pearls employ the technology of white light, which is used in photography and film to erase imperfections and soften features. A constellation of 6 multi-colored pearls blend together for a flawless, radiant complexion. These pearls-with-a-purpose have now been reinvented in 3 color harmonies that are adapted to each skintone." I am very pleased with this face powder, although it is pricey, I would recommend investing in it, it is not like any regular powders you have ever used and I can promise that. I like to use in on top to set my makeup, after I have my foundation/concealer on, this goes great on top. It comes in three shades, even though it does not leave much color on your skin and its pretty much completely sheer. Teint Rosé 01, Teint Beige 02, Teint Doré 03. This powder does come with a great little powder puff, but Guerlain also makes a brush just for this powder called the "Guerlain Météorites Brush", if you want a more precise application, but even with powder puff it still looks flawless. Powder retails for: 1.05 oz ~$57

Cherry Princess

L'Occitane Cerisier Princesse (Cherry Princess)
This is a new Limited Edition fragrance and body collection by L'Occitane. It launches today!! (Monday, January, 30, 2012). It's a Valentine's Day collection and it smells like pure femininity. A spin off of the original Cherry Blossom, but not quite as powdery and floral..and I like it so much better. Cerisier Princesse is a very fruity and juicy fragrance. Its light, and it reminds me of red, juicy cherries, as apposed to actual cherry blossom trees like the regular L'Occitane's Cherry Blossom fragrance.This new fragrance is a fruiy/floral and is inspired by spring and should help you take off your winter blues and welcome spring again. It is a very young fragrance, and by that I mean, I can see even little girls wearing this...but this does not mean that it is an overly sweet perfume like most little girl fragrances on the market are. I really enjoy wearing this perfume, its pretty and feminine and what girl doesn't want to feel that way? I also like the fact that it is inspired by cherry blossom trees, one of my most favorite aromas in the world; Truly a spring scent. I suggest going to your local L'Occiatne boutique and at least smelling this fragrance, because it is only here for 3 weeks starting today. What's nice about this limited edition fragrance bottle is that it only comes in (1.7 oz/50 ml), so it is not a huge investment. The Cherry Princess line also includes these limited editions: 1 oz hand cream, pearlescent shower cream, solid perfume, silky body gel, all infused with the fruity & floral Cherry Princess scent. Notes are: lemon, grapefruit and sweet cherry notes. The heart gives us spring floral accords, while base notes cuddle with a blend of musk and precious wood.

Ooh la la

Victoria's Secret: Sexy Little Things: Ooh la la Illuminating Body Lotion
I would have to start my blog with the first thing that I purchased today: Victoria's Secret Sexy Little Things 'Ooh la la Illuminating Body Lotion'. The first thing I did when I got out of bed today was head over to Victoria's Secret for the final days of their Semi Annual Sale. I went over to the fragrance and beauty section, which was all up to 50% off. I have smelled the "Ooh la la" perfume before and I loved the light sweetness of it. I was mainly interested in the 'Ooh la la Illuminating Body Lotion', which is a pearlescent pinkish color, it goes on with a slight shimmer and leaves a nice aroma of the fragrance. It moisturizes the skin lightly, but I am not too concerned with that, because I would not be using this product to treat dry skin, it is more for the sexy little shimmer and the sweet and girly fragrance it leaves. I definitely will save this one for special occasions such as Valentine's Day and my Anniversary. Plus I got a great deal on it--originally retails for $20..but with the extra 50% off, I paid just $10. Tomorrow I will have to go back and buy a few more to stalk up on, because I absolutely loved how sexy and cute it makes me feel. The bottle itself is irresistible. Top notes are : Mandarin Orange, Cherry Blossom, Vanilla. 

Blog Intro

This blog is inspired by my love of beauty products. I am NOT just an average person who enjoys beauty products...not at all.... I consider myself to be a expert in the beauty industry. I have a lot of experience with cosmetics as well as highend skincare. In my short lifetime I have already had the opportunity to work with some of best highend brands out there, such as Dior, Nars, La Mer, Clarins, Chanel...and thats just to name a few :). I am trained and have enough knowledge in both to share an educated opinion. I cannot go a day without trying out something new on the market or even something that has been there for years. I love discovering new products, weather its an eye cream, a lipstick, a foundation, a shimmer body lotion a perfume and even candles. I live for skincare, makeup, fragrance and other beauty products that fall in those categories. Here you will find me testing out numerous products from numerous kind of brands, and sharing my opinion about them! I hope to bring knowledge and facts as well as personal opinion about the things I try out and hope that everyone enjoys reading the things I have to say.  I hope you enjoy reading this blog and hope that you are just as infatuated with beauty products as I am!
