ALLURE Sample Society |January 2015 | New Year New You












Hi everyone, I have my January Allure Sample Society box for you today.  This box has one of my favorite nail polish brands, it is such a nice mint green shade too.  I hope you all enjoyed this unboxing video.  Let me know what was your favorite item from this box.  Eva


New Year;
New You

Bring on 2015! Bring on the resolutions! Not the impossible, annoying, holier-than-thou type- the completely doable, totally probable, fun kind (i.e., the best kind). So here, our beauty goals for the next year and the products to help us get a jump start on achieving them: Grow our hair long and ensure that it's shiny(see Philip B); make our skin so healthy, it glows(see Philosophy, Erno Laszlo); and embrace color, be it sweet and bright(Zoya) or dark and sultry(Revlon). Enjoy, and happy New Year!

ALLURE NAILS|

Zoya Lacquers in Eden, Leslie, Tiana, Lillian, and Rayne
I got Tiana ( a light minty green shade)

WHAT THEY ARE:
Patel nail polishes that are free of toluene,formaldehyde,camphor, and DBP.

WHY WE LIKE THEM:
We don't typically beat the winter blues with pastels, but we fell hard for these because there's nothing prissy or wishy-washy about them.  The milky, minty Tiana- which is a dead ringer for pistachio gelato-sis so quirky =, it's cool.  There are two baby blues(Rayne is metallic; Lillan isn') that are striking against dark skin.  Leslie is the perfect lavender, with just the tiniest bit of blue-greek shimmer.  And Eden happens to be the same shade of bubble-gum pink we saw on the Chanel spring 2015 runway. How's that for being ahead of the trend? Just be sure to use a bisect with all five shades to avoid any streaks.

PRICE: $9.00 EACH

ALLURE HAIR|

PHILLIP B. LIGHT-WEIGHT DEEP CONDITIONING CREME RINSE

WHAT IT IS:
A conditioner that anyone-including those of us with fine and/or color-treated hair-can use.

WHAT IT DOES:
Makes hair crazy shiny and easy to detangle, which is a big plus if your hair is thick or long.

KEY INGREDIENTS:
Shea butter and a boatload of oils, including jojoba, sesame, walnut,sweet almond, lavender, geranium, and olive(moisturize and add shine).

HOW IT LOOKS/FEELS/SMELLS:
It's lighter than most conditioners and smells a little like cinnamon.  But by the time your hair is dry, the scent disappears completely.

WHY WE LIKE IT:
Read that long list of oils and you'd think this conditioner would leave you with greasy hair- like, Brad Pitt level. But the blend does something a lot of conditioners can't: It makes dry hair look shiny and healthy after just one use, without weighing it down, and we've got one oil tothank for that. "jojoba oil creates the prettiest, healthiest-looking sheen," says cosmetic chemist Ni'Kita Wilson.  It penetrates hair to keep to from breaking. "and it contains, the same conditioning lipids as your scalp's natural oils." But there are two things you should know before using this conditioner: It won't make split ends less noticeable(contrary to the promises on the label), and it doesn't make your hair feel as soft as other conditioners we've tried.  You'll want to use a styling cream afterward for that. 

PRICE:  $26.00 for 6 ounces.


ALLURE SKIN|

Philosophy Renewed Hope in a Jar

WHAT IT IS:
An anti-aging facial moisturizer for all skin types.

KEY INGREDIENTS:
Hyaluronic acid (moisturizes): glycol, citric, and mandolin acids(exfoliate).

HOW IT LOOKS/FEELS/SMELLS:
The cream has a slight sheen that makes it look like vanilla frosting in the jar.  But that's where the similarities end.  The formula is lightweight, cooling, and smells clean. Our only gripe is it takes a little longer than usual to rub in(we'll admit it-we're lazy).

WHY WE LIKE IT:
Holy glowing skin! We put this stuff on and about half an hour later looked like we'd just come from a facial-all radiant. It's because the cream contains the same acids that are in a lot of the best peels, only in a lower concentration.  That means you don't have to wait for an actual peel to do its thing, and there's zero stinging. Plus, the glycol acid in the formula is really good at making fine lines and sun spots less noticeable in about two months.  The only caveats: It's not the most hydrating moisturizer out there, and it doesn't contain sunscreen, so we've been using it before nights out and under our SPF 50 in the A.M. 

PRICE: $47.00 FOR 2 OUNCES

ALLURE FACE|

ERNO LASZLO SEA MUD DEEP CLEANSING VAR

WHAT IT IS:
A charcoal-and-mud facial bar soap with a longtime cult following. It's great for all skin types, but those prone to silliness and breakouts are its most vocal fans.

WHAT IT DOES:
Makes you feel completely clean without drying you out,and that's no easy balancing act.

KEY INGREDIENTS:
Dra Sea mud and charcoal powder(cleanse); glycerin(moisturizes).

HOW IT LOOKS/FEELS/SMELLS:
It's easily one of the coolest-looking bar soaps in the world because of its charcoal color> It smells exactly like you want soap to smell:clean, clean, clean. And it lathers into a creamy gray foam that's easy to rinse off. (The directions will tell you to use precisely 30 splashes of water, but you can ignore that.)

WHY WE LIKE IT:
This soap came out 75 years ago and has been a favorite of Jacqueline Kennedy Oasis, Greta Garbo, Madonna, and Uma Thurman.  The Dead Sea mud and charcoal powder pull oil and dirt out of pores like a magnet.  Our editors with oily complexions like to wait a few minutes before rinsing it off so the soap can act more like a mask.  The result? Skin that's softer, smoother, clearer, and more radiant after each use.

PRICE: $45.00 FOR 5.3 OUNCES

ALLURE EYES|

Revlon PhitoReady Eye Art Lid+Line+Lash on Gold Glitz, Peach Prism, and Cobalt Crystal

WHAT THEY ARE:
Two color-coordinated eye shadows-one cream, one glitter-in a spill proof wand.  They make experimenting with colorful and glittery eye-makeup looks a cinch, since the shades all go on sheer and come with brushes that are super precise .

HOW THEY LOOK/FEEL:
Once coat of the cream or glitter creates a pretty wash of color, while two gives you bold sparkle. We love that these shades are refined: The flecks of glitter are small,and the cream has a smooth metallic finish that only becomes opaque at three coats.

WHY WE LIKE THEM:
We want our colorful makeup to be fun to wear,a no-brainer to apply, and above all, flattering.  These shadows nail altho and one of our favorite winter trends: Makeup artists have been sprinkling glitter on top of eye shadow and mascara like its pixie dust lately.  Consider the faded blues in Cobalt Crystal:If you draw a graphic cat eye with the gray-blue cream and top it with the blackened-blue glitter, you get an easy, chic look(a trick we learned from a makeup artist at the Paris shows).  The rose-gold shades in Peach Prism are particularly sexy on olive skin: use the cream as bold liner, the glitter as a highlight for the inner corners, and add lots of black mascara.  And then theres Gold Glitz: We like pressing a hint of black glitter over the tips of mascara’d lashes-or painting it along their doors like liquid liner-for a rock -and-roll effect.  The flecks haven’t fallen in our contacts yet, which is its own bit of magic.

PRICE: $8.99 EACH

Covergirl TRUBlend Liquid Foundation First Impression, Demo and Review

Hi Everyone, I got my hands on the shade D2(sun beige), first but I noticed it was too dark for me.  So i picked up two other shades to show you what they look like. I highly recommend this foundation to everyone. It is perfect for those of you who want a lightweight, natural looking everyday foundation.  I found that it wore on my dry skin for at least 5 hours before I noticed my blush coming off. I then tried it the next day with a face primer and the wear was longer.  Definitely you should use a face primer for your skin type ( dry, oily or combination) to prolong the wear of this foundation.  It comes in a variety of shades, so you will definitely find a shade for you. This is a gem to find in your local drugstore. Give it a go and let me know how it works out for you.  I hope this video is helpful too.  Let  me know what you think.  Thanks for stopping by.  Eva
