Tom Ford Lip Lacquer in Pink Lust

The final product I got from Tom Ford summer 2013 collection is the Tom Ford Lip Lacquer in Pink Lust .This a an easy to wear comfortable lip product that feels more like a lip treatment. It is not sticky like the Tom Ford lip glosses, and it is like your favourite sweater you throw on day in and day out.

It is a 'frosted' baby peach .It ties in with the whole look of the collection, where u look as if you are basking in the sun and the light is reflecting off  you at every angle. It is very pretty. It also layers over you favourite lipstick.This is a no-brainer! If you can find it get it!

Perricone MD Vitamin Ester Serum - To Brighten and enhance your skin

Perricone Md launched the Vitamin C Ester Serum earlier this year. During there fabulous Spring Event I bought it as well as the new Acyl Glutathione serum. I have use it for about 6 weeks now and am loving the results.

It come in a bottle with a dropper top. I only need 4-5 drop to cover my entire face including the  eye  area. This has just given my skin the boost it needed. Since I already use the Vitamin Ester 15 at night and Blue Plasma, my skin's condition is pretty good. This just nudged it into excellent territory. The serum has a light citrus scent and is light and absorbs quickly. The texture of my skin is fine and clear. I use this in the morning. As far as I understand this Vitamin C serum can withstand use in the day, as it is combined with Palm oil to stop degradation from sunlight (hope I got that right). Besides it's powerful  radiance boosting element it also offers antioxidant protection throughout the day- Don't forget your sunscreen. I love that this is a multi - tasker and can work to help my fine lines around the eye and lip area. I then do top with my eye cream. I recently went for a mini-facial at a spa and the aesthitician was trying to diagnose my skin and used a fancy machine to measure my moisture levels. The measurements were good ( I have surface dehydration- we live so high above sea level and this can affect this). After the treatment she remeasured in the hope they has improved to show off how good their products were. No change. Good is Good. She could not fault my home care- Thank you Dr Perricone...... and I went home empty handed. While this product specifically does not deal with hydration it has definitely helped in nourishing my skin. This I was told differs from the Vitamin C Ester 15 as it has a more brightening result as is used all over the face and eye area and the Ester 15 while brightening it also has a tightening effect. I love them both and use them in tandem. This is another must have product from Perricone MD.

Have you tried any of Dr Perricones products?

Tom Ford Illuminating cheek color for Summer 2013- Blush Guilt

This is a new limited product never done before by Tom Ford. A turn up cheek stick that is meant to illuminate your cheeks, mmmmmm......

Most cheeks stick, give the impression that they are quick and easy to use. Blush Guilt is far trickier and needs a little more love and attention.  The colour is very similar to the Tom Ford Fire Lust skin illuminator, sans the slightly heavier micro - shimmer. This cheek stick NEVER dries down, so here starts the love. It has been suggested to use this on bare skin. I wear a tinted moisturiser/foundation for a reason?! So, I have used this from the stick/or fingers onto my 'foundationed' face. This worked to give a gleaming golden peach effect to my cheeks. It did give more colour than Fire Lust, but still very soft. My cheeks remained 'sticky' until I took it off. The emollient texture makes it difficult to powder over. I though it might look great with bronzer or blush underneath, but the powder product is effectively wiped off while applying Blush Guilt. This gives a very editorial look, very much like the glossy eye trend. It does give a pretty flush to the cheeks, but I think you could choose between Blush Guilt and Fire Lust or maybe choose the other shade Bronzed Amber. Since I just love the idea of creating such looks I am still enjoying the cheek stick. I prefer this product at night, since I have oily skin. If I wore it through the day I might end up looking shiny all over.

I would love to know if you have any tips or tricks when using Tom Ford Illuminating cheek color?
