A couple of beauty products I’m loving

Lipstick Queen lip pencil—A couple of beauty products I'm loving

Don’t you hate falling in love with makeup that’s part of a limited edition run, and therefore can’t become part of your regular regimen? This is just what happened with a certain MAC lipstick that Tribeca Mom brought me from the Redbook beauty closet a while back, and the whole situation had me in a mini-panic. I never get compliments on what lipstick I’m wearing, but when I have this on, I do. It’s a rich, berryish shade, very cheery, a little sexy, somehow not too much. I’ve been dreading the day I run out, and I wear it so much that day is fast approaching. So I went to Bigelow, where the ladies behind the counter know their stuff, and asked for the closest match they had. They came up with this—it’s called Apollo—from Lipstick Queen. The match is almost perfect, and I consider the day to be saved.

Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow—A couple of beauty products I'm loving

And here’s another find from my friend Andrea—queen of the no makeup-makeup look: Charlotte Tilbury’s Wonder Glow, which does just what it sounds like: you apply it under or over your foundation or BB cream or tinted moisturizer or whatever, and it just makes your skin all luminous and fresh and younger-looking. It’s super-sheer, so you don’t feel like you’re glopping on another layer, and makes the biggest difference.

    So I was just reading the blurb on the face stuff and have to ask: what is BioNymph Peptide Complex? Is it made from real nymphs? Is there a difference between a bionymph and a regular nymph (perhaps the former is organic)? Or will you just resemble a (organic) nymph when you use it?

      LOL DeDe!!! Idk, but it sure as hell makes me want to buy it!

        A sugar-peptide mix from wild tobacco plants could be an effective … and the ingredient is now available under the name Bionymph peptide.

        Wild tobacco and sugar….No Nymphs harmed in the production of said product.

        Laughing out loud as well….

    Kim, can you shed some insider retail information on why companies discontinue products? I am still missing Estee Lauder’s Creme Pack mask!

    This is a makeup miracle! I mean that. I am still considering time travel if only to buy makeup standby’s that disappeared.

    Also – pretty lipstick – AND pencil application. You upgraded 🙂
