Bit By The Best

Here’s the rundown of products that The Beauty Bug’s paying extra to this week…

Shu Uemura’s Limited Edition Luring Powder – From the fall 2008 Instinct Collection, Luring Powder is a light, naturally rosy powder that provides a light, sheen mist to skin. The Beauty Bug was first introduced to this product by Boston’s Best, Dani Wagener and it has completely changed the way The Beauty Bug applies brush. Thanks to a great tip from Dani, The Beauty Bug is now sporting rosy cheeks with an extra little pop. Dani instructed Her to use wider strokes when applying the Luring Powder. Using a big fluffy brush, The Beauty Bug applies the Luring Powder generously, covering most of Her cheek. To accentuate the apples of Her cheeks, Dani advised taking a brighter, slightly darker blush and applying just a little to the apple with a smaller more concentrated brush. This creates definition and pop.

Why are limited edition products always the best?

Anthony Logistics Blue Chamomile Body Gel and Shampoo – The Beauty Bug Fiance has finally stopped using all of The Beauty Bug’s shower gels thanks to the new manly super-sized bottle of Anthony Logistics Blue Chamomile Body Gel in our shower.  Containing chamomile, aloe vera, glycerin, sea kelp and wheat protein, the gel and shampoo has that instantly recognizable classically clean, i-just-stepped-out-of-the-shower-smell, and leaves skin and hair conditioned and soft. This limited edition giant was launched last month to support the fight again prostate cancer. Known for their charitable work, Anthony Logistics will donate 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this item to prostate cancer research. While it’s now October, this limited edition size is still available.

Clinique’s Superdefense SPF 25 Age Defense Moisturizer - In The Beauty Bug’s experience, She hasn’t come across very many moisturizers with a high SPF content that also wear well under makeup. Clinque’s new Superdefense SPF 25 Age Defense Moisturizer was just added to Her short list. To date, it’s Clinique’s most advanced age prevention daily moisturizer. The lanundry list of key benefits/ingredients include protection again both UVB and UVA rays, red microalage that works to counteract the negative visible effects of stress, padina pavonica extract which helps skin better absorb calcium, resulting in a stronger barrier to help prevent the first signs of aging, Vitamins C and E, soothing agents caffeine, sucrose and sea whip extract, and a patented “skin signaling technology” that encourages and activatess skin’s natural repair process to “clean up” damage. The lightweight, scentless moisturizers feels great on skin, and offers a refreshing and comfortable feel. Available in three skin-typed formulas, Superdefense is The Beauty Bug’s new favorite daily moisturizer.

    I’ve been really happy with Clinique products so far. I’m addicted to their eye cream but haven’t tried the SPF 25 (yet).
