September 2008 Archives

These days, more than ever, we are in search of the one product that will help us turn back the clock, or at least put our skin’s aging process on pause for a few years. With new technology and scientifically advanced ingredients, products are able to show improvements in the way skin looks and behaves.


  prescriptives  Super Line Preventor Xtreme Lifting Concentrate.jpgPrescriptives NEW Super Line Xtreme Lifting Concentrate promises to give its users more lifted and firm skin with ingredients that include Hexapeptide and antioxidant-rich pomegranate.

We love antioxadants, and know that any product that uses them as main ingredients will be nothing but good for our skin, even if it shows no results. Of course, that would defeat the purpose of using it because if a product claims to firm our skin and make us look younger, we expect to see younger looking, firmer skin. Do you know of any woman who uses a product for one reason when it claims to do another?

In any case, this product sounds promising, and from what we read about it, we know that women will flock to the stores in the hopes of turning the clock back, or at least slowing it down it for awhile.

Most of us wear a smoky eye for evenings beacuse it’s simple, and looks amazing. While black will continue to be the traditional color for this look, this season the smoky eye gets an update using grey tones and metallics that can also be worn during the day.


Try these products to achieve your new smoky eye:

Nars Eyeshadow Duo in Paris is a fabulous combination of two coordinating greys (silver shimmer and matte grey) that can be worn together or alone, wet or dry. Try applying the matte grey shade on the entire lid, and apply the silver shimmer to the eye’s inner rim and along the bottom lasheline for a long-wearing, eye-popping look.  $32

Rimmel Colour Rush Quad Eyeshadow in Smokey Noir includes four grey tones that are long-lasting and versitile. Try using the darker shades as a liner when wearing the lighter tones for a subtle yet defined daytime eye. $5.99

Use Urban Decay Metallic Eyeshadow in Smog (a deep coppery bronze) to help you create the smoldering bronzed eye that was seen on many of the models during the fall runway shows. $16









CoverGirl Eye Enhancers Eye Shadow Trio in Golden Sunset gives three color options to work with that will help you create a number of different looks. For night, try wearing the shimmery colors paired with a sheer berry stained lip. $4.99

Estee Lauder Perfectionist High Definition Volume Mascara will give you fabulously definied, lengthened and darkened lashes that will perfectly frame your newly smoked out eye.

The MTV Video Music Awards were held this past weekend, and there were many performances and surprises. Of course, being the beauty lovers that we are, we just couldn’t keep our eyes off the hair and makeup the stars wore as they came down the red carpet.

Lindsay Lohan looked fresh and youthful with her hair worn in loose waves— we love the strawberry-blonde! She kept the liner more heavy on the top of her lids, giving the illusion of thicker lashes. Flawless skin and a pale lip really kept her face in balance and made her look radiant.

To keep your waves frizz-free like Lindsay’s, try L’Oreal Studio Line Smoothness Glossing Creme, $4.99

Rihanna took a new risk with her hairstyle, adding a bit of blue and blonde streaks to it. She also decided to use a blue liner to line the bottom of her eyes, while keeping her lids more pale. Again, we see a pale lip, but this time it’s done with a more glossy finish.

Make your eyes pop like Rihanna’s! Try Tarte Eyeliner in Blue Nude, $18

Ashlee Simpson wore her typical heavy liner, but adding teal blue into the mix really added something extra and made her eyes pop. Her hair was worn with shiny long layers, creating a more sophisticated look.

To add shine, like Ashlee’s, to your own locks, try ABBA Pure Shine Spray, $18






Lauren Conrad’s hair is truly our favorite of the night. The braided updo looked nothing short of effortless and chic. With the focus on her eyes, her pink cheeks and pearly-pink lips really gave her a soft and ultra-femine look.

 For Lauren’s soft, radiant look, try Clinique Allover Colour, $29.50
