Nothing like watching Cher prance around in a see through fishnet body suit right? Makes you just want to turn back time. Obviously Cher is doing something right as she looks pretty incredible.
Maybe she’s using L’Oreal Revitalift Deep-Set Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream to turn back her time. I know I seriously need to turn back the clock when it comes to my eyes. The Muse does so sport fine lines, a bit of puff, and dark circles.
Jump ahead for the deets on the new L’Oreal Revitalift Eye Cream.
I’m currently busy testing out a new eye cream so I haven’t had a chance to try out L’Oreal Revitalift Deep-Set Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream for myself but I’ll give you the low down on what it is, what it does, and what I think of it so far.
First off the Muse loves the idea of the concept. It’s a dual ended eye cream with an AM and PM formula. I absolutely adore this idea and wish more brands would sport such an ideal form of packaging for eye cream. It’s so very convenient to have two formulas in one design. I don’t have to reach for another cream at night I simply flip the applicator and have my night treatment. I love the applicators on each one as well. The PM has a needle nose applicator which allows for precise application of the treatment without over doing it. The AM has a typical slant applicator which also allow for easy application and even blending if you’re wanting to touch your eye area.
Now this is for serious deep set wrinkles and contains Pro-Retinol A+ for treating such. I don’t have deep wrinkles as of yet but it’s never to early to start worrying about them. The formula supposedly reduces the appearance of deep-set wrinkles.
The AM formula contains an SPF 15 and helps repair broken skin fibers around the eye area. The PM formula contains the same fiber restoring fibers and helps to repair and rebuild broken skin fibers. Pro-Retinol A accelerates skin renewal for a smoother, revitalized skin. The treatment begins to work immediately according to the box but the best results are seen within 4 to 8 weeks.
The treatment is $19.99 so it’s quite affordable if you’re wanting to look towards a drugstore for your eye treatment. Overall, it sounds promising but I can’t take full advantage as I don’t have deep set wrinkles as of yet but anyone who’s reaching a point where they need extra treatment in this area could likely benefit.

One of my client’s came into my office today and said he heard on the new that it was the hottest day of the year. Honestly, it’s sticky outside yes and it’s about 85 degrees or so but I wouldn’t call it the hottest day of the year.
But it’s good enough weather to test out Benefit Matterial Girl Matte Finishing Powder.
Jump for it.
Let’s start by saying that Benefit always has these small little releases that simply kill it. Posietint and Coralista just to name a few. These items become instant cult classics. I love Benefit for this reason. It’s not a big collection release, it’s not 20 limited edition shadows, it’s simply one solid release ever few months or so that rocks it.
Benefit Matterial Girl slipped by me this time and I just came across it on the website recently. Of course, I couldn’t wait to test it out for myself. Did you know it’s not on counter yet or at Sephora and also that’s it’s an Asian Exclusive that was available on Asian counters for a good while before popping up here in the states.
What is it?
Nothing huge, nothing crazy. It’s simply a mattifying loose powder for setting makeup. It’s for all the oily skin chicas who feel like their face is melting off. Mine isn’t necessarily melting off but I can tell you that even my dry skin takes on oily and shiny with the best of ‘em.
As always Benefit reigns the realm of cuteness with a sweet little package. The powder comes housed in a pale pink and white topped jar with a clear base and surrounding bows around it. This alone makes it worthy of a pick up.
A few readers asked for the ingredients list and most important of all it does contain talc but no cornstarch. Talc is commonly known for causing me to itch terribly but lucky enough this hasn’t made me suffer in that direction. The secondary main ingredient is Mica.
The powder is soft, silky, and applies flawlessly. It’s transparent for the most part but manages to even out my skin tone a fair bit, sets my makeup, and most important mattifies my skin.
What better day than the hottest day (supposedly) of the year to try this out? I set my makeup with it and did a few runs today around town with it on. Post Office, Bank, drop off dry cleaning, etc……I did a fair bit of walking about as well. So far my face is remaining in tact minus oil and shine. I haven’t touched up yet and I’m going on about four hours of use so far, not bad for a loose powder.
So far so good.
Overall, I’m liking it. Cute packaging and shine free skin, what more could a girl want? If you’re a lover of Benefit you’re going to want to indulge. It’s available now from www.benefitcosmetics.com
But don’t buy it right now. It just launched. Wait a few and I’m positive Benefit will slip a free shipping coupon into your mail box shortly as they always do with new releases.
Although I’m the first one to admit that my beloved Lush does have some products that don’t work…..
Ahem….Lush Fresh Face Mask.
I’ve tried them all and I honestly never see incredible results after use. You’d think with all those good for you bits inside that your face would be glowing after use, not so much.
But that doesn’t stop me from wanting the brand new Lush Oatifix Fresh Face Mask. It’s too tempting with it’s blend of fresh bananas, oatmeal, almonds, and vanilla..god my stomach is grumbling sounds good enough to eat to me!
Ground almonds exfoliating dead skin, bananas are a great nutritious treat for your skin as they soften and reduce redness. Although I don’t sport redness I could get on board with some extra softness.
I’ll take two thanks so much.
Available now from Lush UK and soon to follow around the rest of this world.
You read beauty blogs, you read consumer reviews on forums and beauty sites, you read magazines, and you watch TV adverts.
Question is of all those things who is it that influences your beauty purchases the most?
Is it something that you see on your fav beauty blog? Or maybe a friend told you how you have to try out this new shampoo she loves. How about TV advertisements or magazines?
Who Influences Your Beauty Purchases?
Jump ahead to hear my influences!
For the most part I’m influenced by some of my fav beauty bloggers and also websites and the like. Say I wander onto Sephora and see something that captures my interests, that will likely cause an immediate need to purchase an item. I’m one that loves pretty pictures and the likes. If I see something advertised on a model such as items from many Bobbi Brown launches, I instantly want it as the model is always so picture perfect and flawless.
I’m also a huge follower and reader of beauty blogs so those also influence my need for product.
Forums and online communities also feed my need for beauty.
