Lumene Vitamin C+ Bright Skin Radiance Nectar Review and Lumene Vitamin C+ Pure Radiance 24 Hour Lotion Review

Lumene skin care always garners some of my attention because hey, you purchase this shiz at your local drugstore for affordable prices and get the benefits of a posher brand of skin care for a considerably less than counter brands.

Loves that right?

I have a love affair with the Lumene Vitamin C+ Energy Cocktail so recently on a foray through CVS I came across the new Lumene Vitamin C+ Bright Skin Radiance Nectar which promises to whiten and brighten up my skin. Aw hells to the yes. You know I’m all about brighter, whiter skin. They also have a new Lumene Vitamin C+ Pure Radiance 24 Hour Lotion to go along with the serum. Happy Days!

Beauty Reflections: A Look Back At Summer 2010

Beauty Reflections

I can’t believe Summer is almost over. In some ways it lasted for ages and in others it feels like it flew by. Did you enjoy your Summer so far? Do anything special?

As Summer draws to a close, I’ll be reviewing the last of the Summer items I have stashed away and start to concentrate more on Fall and Holiday 2010. It’s quite an exciting time as I simply adore Holiday Collections!

Until we get deeper into Fall and Holiday we might as well enjoy the last days of Summer the best we can right? Here are some great posts from Summer 2010 that you may have missed!

NARS Skin Smoothing Face Prep released this Summer and it wasn’t exactly what I had hoped it would be. Some people loved it, alot of people hated it, and I gotta admit mine fell deep into the Makeup Graveyard!
