My Beauty Faves Week of April 6-12, 2015

Last week went by so fast!  I went to two weddings this weekend and it was so busy.  So, I am putting out my end of week review a day late!

This week, I have been loving a random mix of items — a blurring primer, a smoky eye shadow trio, a yummy weight loss drink and a cute hair band!

Lumene Bright Now Blur Line and Pore Minimizer

Lumene Bright Now Blur Line and Pore Minimizer ($19.99 USD) — The new Lumene Bright Now Blur Line & Pore Minimizer makes skin instantly more beautiful and even-looking. Helps to control shine and optically diminishes the appearance of fine lines and pores. Skin looks and feels instantly more soft and supple. The innovative texture of the product helps the skin look flawless even longer and keeps skin matte and shine free all day long while delivering a brighter and more radiant look. Oil-Free formulation.

What I think: This is my new favorite primer! Just a little goes a long way to smooth out pores and lines and to make a great base for makeup.  I wear it everyday underneath my foundation and my skin looks great all day!

Available at drugstores and mass market retailers near you.

Smashbox Photo Op Eye Shadow Trio in Cover Shoot ($28 USD) — Our fab trios are all playfulness and color! Get rich, bold hues in just one swipe. Each includes 3 coordinated shadows-base shade, contour color and highlighter-so you’ll never wonder which shades to wear together again. You’ll even find application tips on the peel-back label.

What I think:  Hello perfect brown smoky eye! These colors are so pretty and can make either a very dramatic eye or a soft every day look.  The top two shades are shimmer and the darkest shade is a matte — you can use it as an eyeliner as well!

Celsius Flo Fusion On-the-Go in Berry

Celsius Flo Fusion On-the-Go in Berry — a great tasting drink for your active, healthy lifestyle. Studies show that drinking Flo Fusion™ before moderate exercise helps you burn up to 100 calories and more per serving, boosts metabolism, burns up to 93% more body fat, increases endurance and provides lasting energy to accelerate your transformation no matter what diet or training routine you are on. The great tasting Flo Fusion™ Transformation Accelerator Powder has the same benefits as the “ready to drink” Celsius and is available in Berry or Orange flavor.

What I think:  I have tried both Berry and Orange a few times before a workout.  Both flavors are good, I think I like orange better, but that’s just personal preference.  I notice that I get good workout energy with these drinks.  I don’t know if it’s helped me lose weight, but I am going to continue using them and see.

What I think: This is so cute!  I received a sample and gave it to my daughter who is really into the boho look, and she wears it all of the time.  It is made very well and is so easy to adjust.  And she gets lots of compliments.  I also think it is perfect for women of all ages who want a fun look for a night out.
