My Beauty Favorites Week of August 24-30, 2015

It’s getting hot again in Kansas City, but I have Fall on the brain!  I am excited for cooler weather, deeper colors and the new boots I just ordered!

This week for beauty, I’m loving amazing skincare that works overnight, a lip crayon that’s like a balm, a sultry new fragrance and a shampoo that is safe for my color-treated hair.

Sustainable Youth Super Boost Night Serum
Sustainable Youth Super Boost Night Serum

Sustainable Youth Super Boost Night Serum ($150 USD) —   is a super-charged sleep serum that boosts skin’s natural nocturnal regenerating powers. It prepares the skin for maximum moisturization and helps to visibly restore the skin’s natural, youthful bounce and elasticity. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and helps lift and firm sagging skin.

What I think: This is a light, soothing serum.  I apply it at evening, under my night cream and it instantly makes my skin look smoother.  In the morning, my skin looks brighter, hydrated and the texture is soft and smooth!  I love that it contains natural ingredients, too.

Christie Brinkley Skincare Recapture 360 Night Anti-Aging Night Treatment ($69 USD) — you can repair the damages from the sun and turn back signs of aging overnight. This night cream works with the skin’s circadian cycle to revitalize the skin, reduces wrinkles while improving firmness, smoothness and elasticity and increases cellular energy for a rejuvenated appearance.

What I think: I have been using this over the night serum above, and I love how it feels and how great it makes my skin look! The texture is creamy, but not greasy at all.  A little does go a long way.  I love how it works overnight and gives me hydrated and soft skin by morning!

Pinky Swear, a warm shimmering pink shade

Sheer Bliss, a champagne pearl shade

Wild Card, a cool pink shade

What I think: I have Sheer Bliss and Pinky Swear and they both work well for a natural and sheer lip!  They aren’t sticky at all and are very moisturizing.  They do feel like a light balm.  I now keep Sheer Bliss with me when I want a lip product with a little sheen, but not a lot of color.  It’s perfect!

0.2 Fragrance
0.2 Fragrance

0.2 Fragrance — 0.2 is more than a fragrance – it is an experience, a moment in time.  To capture that first glance, that first rush, that first moment when eyes lock and passion ignites.  For men, for women, 0.2 is a fragrance for us all.

Top notes of Italian Bergamot and Spearmint introduce you to a fresh musk accord that is both clean yet earthy.  Notes of White Amber, French Vanilla, and Tunisian Amber are grounded by a hint of Oakmoss to keep you in that moment, and take you deeper.

What I think:  I like this fragrance, it is both sweet and spicy.  I think that it will be perfect for the cooler months.  I can really pick out the spearmint, musk and ambers.  It’s very sexy!
