There are actually three different palettes you can choose from, but we’re loving Flowers 1, with its mix of white, rose, lavender, gold, lavender grey and black shadows crafted into beautiful Warhol-esque flowers. Each of the palettes draws from Warhol’s famous silkscreen flora. Etched into the interior mirror of Flowers 1 is Warhol’s quote, “If you can convince yourself that you look fabulous, you can save yourself the trouble of primping.”
The only problem we have with this palette is that we can’t bring ourselves to actually use it! It’s just way too beautiful—and it makes us feel like we have a piece of real Warhol art in our home.
NARS Flowers 1 Eyeshadow Palette retails for $55 at sephora.com.
Crabtree & Evelyn Rosewater Bath & Shower Gel
It lathers wonderfully, it smells fantastic, and it leaves skin feeling so soft and smooth. What’s not to love?

Jurlique Rose Hand Cream
While we normally shy away from scented body lotions and creams, we make an exception for this one because it just smells too darn good not to use. The fact that it sinks into skin immediately and makes our hands feel great is just a bonus.

Fresh Rose FreshFace Primer
The primer we come back to again and again—not only because it smells divine, but because it makes our skin glow from within.

Last week I introduced the L’Oreal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power Collection anti-aging system and promised to keep you posted on my progress as I test out the products for a month. One week in and I can honestly say I’m impressed!
While it’s too soon to visualize any long-term benefits, the instant benefits are remarkable — in large part due to the Triple Power Deep Acting Moisturizer. I will preface this by saying that I have extremely dry skin, so a moisturizer is an integral part of my morning and evening skincare routine. As I mentioned in my previous post, my smile lines have become more pronounced in recent years and I’ve noticed a slight loss of firmness.
My first impression of the product was, of course, the packaging. The jar has an impressive heft to it and a luxury feel that I rarely associate with a drugstore product. The cream is nice and lightweight, not too thick, with a light pleasant smell that isn’t at all cloying or overpowering. Applying the cream feels deliciously soothing and melts into skin, providing a perfect base for makeup without any greasy feel or look. Most importantly, it works instantly to moisturize my dry skin, leaving no flakes or rough patches whatsoever — a problem I often experience with other moisturizers. Even better, I do see a difference in fine lines with a noticeable plumping of the skin making it look younger and smoother on contact.
After using the product for a week, I find it to be an amazing daily moisturizer. As the weeks go on, I look forward to realizing the added benefit of younger, firmer skin as the patented ProXylane ingredient works to stimulate collagen production. I’ll check back in next week with my progress.
L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift introduces Triple Power - three anti-aging skincare products designed to help fight the 3 dimensions of aging. When just fighting wrinkles isn’t enough, you need to go beyond a one-dimensional approach to restore skin’s youthful look. Challenge this approach with a powerful and luxurious cream (Triple Power Deep-Acting Moisturizer) that visibly addresses the three dimensions of aging skin: wrinkles, loss of facial volume and loss of firmness. The RevitaLift Triple Power collection also includes a Concentrated Serum and an Eye Treatment.
