The Best Natural Lipstick Color in The World: Found!

You'll know what I'm talking about when you slick it on. It's LOVE. It's glossy without being too sheer, it has enough color to pack a punch and it's universally flattering. Too good to be true right? I haven't used a lipgloss since my high school years and yet the glossiness of this lipstick has given me new hope. To some it may be an old familiar favorite, but for others, it's the discovery of a lifetime. Ladies, meet... your lips but. MUCH, MUCH BETTER. 

NARS Dolce Vita. Take it in any form you can get. I just bought it last month and I'm almost ready to jump for my next tube. 

Pick of the Week: Pond's Gold Radiance Line

A little note: So... it has been quite awhile. Honestly I didn't know if I'd ever get it together enough for me to start blogging again, what with the end of the year approaching and the crazy final quarter schedule I've had. Many happenings lately, but I realized I missed this after getting a little bit of recognition for one of my other blogs... nothing like a really great compliment to make your day and jumpstart a flagging blogger career. Anyway, here goes!

I don't know what it is about brand new products that makes me think it's Christmas morning. Maybe it's the unfamiliar shiny packaging, and the promises of "youth, glowing skin, radiance, precious minerals". Or maybe it's just the fact that it has the potential to be a product that I will use FOREVER (THE product, the golden ticket to perfection!).. Regardless of what it is, the jolt I felt when I came home a few weeks ago to find a GOLDEN BOX on my bed was unmistakable. For some reason Ponds decided to send us quite a collection of items from their Gold Radiance line. The box included the spf15 day cream, eye cream, serum and face wash. Of course, the first thing I looked at was the serum - it has little pieces of gold foil suspended in its gel-like formula. And thennnnn I looked for the little pamphlets that normally accompany such items and what I read was sort of...lacking. It basically said that it was a youth rejuvenating serum with precious gold particles. Period. After further research, I came across this press release:
"Pond’s Gold Radiance is the first Pond’s product which has real gold micro particles. These gold micro particles is blended with Pond’s patented anti-aging ingredients which in harmony fights dullness and recaptures youthful radiance and gives instant glow to the skin.
The gold micro particles used in Pond’s Gold Radiance is 99% real gold which has known good effects on skin. Gold as a natural mineral is known to give instant radiance to the skin while enhancing skin’s renewal process (replacing dead skin cells with new healthier ones) and skin elasticity (ability of the skin to go back to normal state once stretched)."
Well I've tried less glamorous things, and I must say it really intrigued me when I realized that I would be exfoliating with micro particles of gold so of course, I gave it a go immediately. And this is what I've got to say!
