Problem Solver of the Week: L’Oreal Paris Visible Lift CC Eye Concealer

L'Oreal Paris Visible Lift CC Eye ConcealerThe ProductL’Oreal Paris Visible Lift CC Eye Concealer, $9.99

Why: I was first introduced to this product by L’Oreal Consulting Makeup Artist Billy B. He called it the perfect product for a “drunk girl”, mostly because if you keep it in the fridge and apply it cold, it’s a fabulous remedy for fatigued eyes and dark circles. A great way to hide a hangover, indeed. But, even if you’re not a “drunk girl”, it’s pretty great. If you’re sleep deprived (Listen up new moms!) or you’re just looking worn out after a long day at the office, a couple of swipes of this cooling roller ball full of eye brightening concealer will help you look well rested and ready for anything. And, it’s super lightweight so it doesn’t settle into creases.

My Mother’s Day Beauty Wish List

Sunday will mark my first Mother’s Day ever. How weird it’ll be to be one of the women celebrated on this day. Weird, but pretty awesome.

If you’re new to the mom title, you can totally relate to the fact that it’s extremely difficult to squeeze in beautifying. You’re too busy fussing over everyone else. Showering is an accomplishment. Being able to blowout your hair, apply an actual makeup “look” and keep up with brow shaping, bikini line grooming and all of that stuff is pretty much a thing of the past. Am I right?

It’s led me to start fantasizing about beauty products and treatments even more than usual. So, here are the six items I’d treat myself with, if I were doing the shopping…

Tocca-Liliana-EDTNo. 1: Tocca anything.

I’ve been using the new Tocca Crema da Mano Luxe in Bianca, $20, which smells divine – it’s a blend of green tea and lemon – and the tube is gorgeous. But, I’m also hoping get my hands on their newest fragrance, Tocca Liliana Eau de Parfum, $68. It’s inspired by The Great Gatsby (what isn’t these days) and includes notes of Italian bergamot, gardenia, white peony and sandalwood.

Watermelon

No. 2: Watermelon Vodka-Tini Body Duo at The Huntington Spa, $190 (Regularly $240)

This delicious duo, a special treatment the spa is featuring for spring, includes a 30-minute watermelon/basil sugar body scrub followed by an hour-long massage that involves sparkling citrus cilantro lime oil. If that doesn’t sound like heaven, know that the beautiful spa is housed in the fabulous Langham Hotel in Pasadena. I might never come home if this gift comes my way.

Marc Jacobs Honey

No. 3: Marc Jacobs Honey

While this fragrance doesn’t launch until summer, I’m already adding it to my beauty wish list. How can I not. The bottle is seriously cute. Continue reading

Beauty Problem Solver Of the Week: Benefit Fakeup Concealer, $24

benefit-fake-up-hydrating-concealerThe Product: Benefit Fakeup Concealer, $24

Why: For many of you, the biggest downside to wearing under eye concealer is the dried-in-the-cracks look that appears about an hour after you put on your makeup. Benefit Fakeup Concealer, $24 aims to fix that by surrounding the makeup with a hydrating ring. Genius. With vitamin E and apple seed extract, it hides dark circles and diffuses fine lines for a silky smooth application. This product literally sinks right into your skin, leaving a swipe of moisture that prevents the cover up from drying and caking. It’s not for those of you who need utra-heavy, spackle-like concealer  — I would say this a light-to-medium coverage stick — but it does the job and stays on like a champ. It’s available in a light, medium and deep shades, so it doesn’t leave too much for dark skin tones. However, I used a lighter shade than I typically do to give it a try, and it actually took on a pretty highlight-y appearance, which I loved. I’m going to be sticking with this concealer for a while.
