Review: Marc Jacobs Beauty New Beauty for the lips this summer. #MarcJacobsBeauty #SheerGelLipstick #NewNudes

 (product photos courtesy of www.sephora.com)


0.19 oz./3.49mL $28.00
Marc Jacobs Beauty has created almost the perfect lipcolor. A long wearing moisture rich lipcolor that does not feel dry on your lips, is extremely pigmented and wears for a long time with normal wear! A hydrating, eight-hour wear, liquid lipstick in a range of bold, full-coverage nudes.Lasting wear meets hydration for a completely new liquid lipstick sensation with Le Marc Liquid Lip Crème. I tried four shades: Yours To Try, Fawn Over Me, Slow Burn and Shush, Blush

Here are photos of the lipsticks on my lips so you can get an idea of what they look like as well as photos of the Marc Jacobs Liquid Lip Crèmes that I have so you can see them in the tube..

Enjoy the indulgent creaminess of this lipstick, now available in a luxurious liquid formula that glides onto lips so that they stay looking plump and full all day long. Formulated with Brazilian cupuaçu butter and collagen, the rich, creamy texture always feels cushiony, and lips never appear lined or cracked. Featuring a range of bold nudes and a delicate vanilla scent, each stroke of the velvety doe-foot applicator delivers unexpected, full, nude coverage with a subtle, satin sheen. The infamous Diane Kendal specially developed the shade Yours to Try to create her favorite editorial nude lip look. And let me say, it is the perfect nude shade.

New Nudes Sheer Gel Lipstick is a sheer nude lipstick with an innovative gel formula for comfortable glide and wear. You can experience this nude lipstick agians with new shades. The non-traditional nude lip color defies expectation with its innovative gellified, creamy formula that glides effortlessly over lips. It delivers a buttery, balmy sensation and a universally-flattering sheer nude tint with a sleek, shine finish. The lipstick has been delicately scented with vanilla and it’s infused with rich monoi butter, myrrh extract, and anti-oxidant vitamin E to help nurture lips for comfortable wear that feels hydrating and soft, leaving lips also feeling amazingly soft and light. Each of the sheer, flattering nude shades is inspired by an actress in one of Marc’s favorite films. Pair New Nudes with (P)outliner Longwear Lip Pencil (sold separately) to subtly shape and define lips.

I love the colors in this line. I have several. I just tried three of the newest shades: Dreamgirl, Hey, Stranger and May Day. I loved all three but then again, I have a nuge nude shade collection of lipcolors. Not because I am searching for the best per se but because I just like them. Here are the three that I tried:

Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip CremeThis spring Marc Jacobs introduces Le Marc Lip Crème. This lip color is a rich, velvety ultra-hydrating lipstick that is extremely pigmented and can deliver a very dramatic punch of color. It is guaranteed to give endless hours of wear.

I tried four shades of the Le Marc Lip Crème. The shades I tried were J’Adore (terra cotta blush), Rei of Light (toasted brick), Magenta (grape sangria), and Scandal (intense plum). I will say this, these are very intense shades. They do cover the lips with one swipe. In all my years of wearing lipstick (since I was 12 and I am now 43), I have not seen a lipstick with this much pigment and payoff. I love how well it goes on and how well it lasts. Not only does it stay on for at least 10 hours, it also wears well through eating. More than any other lipstick I have seen. I also like that it does not come off easily onto other things, the color is just about transfer-proof. It is non-drying to the lips, keeping them feeling hydrated and soft.

This line is very nice and does really help with the aftercare of the affected area, which is always around the bikini line. The PrivateRx line does what it wants when it wants to do it, I'm not asking anyone for information, he can just call me: http://www.privaterx.com/cooling-pads.html/stories 




.5 fl .oz./15 mL $6.99

They have all kinds of other vaginal products that are to be used for the right moment. i do believe that these products work extensively well and I would use them eternally in fighting for ingrown hairs or for the right to have a trimmed private area. Yes, I had a couple of safety problems with the products but it was discussed with the company. So have a fun summer.

Review: SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF Broad-Range Anti-Oxidant Treatment Combining 2% Phloretin,10% L-Ascorbic Acid, % and 0.5% Ferulic Acid #SkinCeuticals #PhloretinCF

(photo courtesy of www.skinceuticals.com)

1fl.oz./30 mL $165.00

This prophylactic serum helps to prevent aging by the use of a few different ingredients. Phloretin CF features a patented synergistic combination of 2% phloretin (it is derived from apples and the root bark of fruit trees including pear and grapefruit, it neutralizes damaging free radicals, helps improve cell turnover, and improves the appearance of discoloration), 10% l-ascorbic acid (known for its superior antioxidant benefits, this highly potent form of pure vitamin C neutralizes damaging free radicals and protects against oxidative stress while providing visible anti-aging benefits), and 0.5% ferulic acid (a plant-based antioxidant, it neutralizes free radicals and enhances the antioxidant benefits of phloretin and vitamins C and E) for enhanced protection against atmospheric skin aging, environmental damage and premature signs of aging caused by free radicals from UVA/UVB, infrared radiant (IRA) and ozone pollution (O3). In addition to antioxdiant protective benefits, Phloretin CF improves the appearance of discoloration, fine lines and uneven skin tone. It provides advanced enviornmental protection by neutralizing damaging free radicals. It improves the appearance of discoloration and overall skin tone. Once absorbed, this Vitamin c serum remains effective for a minimum of 72 hours. It is paraben-free, fragrance-free- and dye-free. This serum is ideal for normal, oily and combination skin types. SkinCeutical's reserach shows that specific combinations of antioxidants, when effectively formulated, provide superior resuts to each single antioxidant alone. 

Phloretin CF is a triple antioxiant cocktail formulation shown to provide powerful environmental protection due to a synergistic combinaton of 2% phloretin, 10% pure Vitamin C, and 0.5% ferulic acid. It is formulated under the Duke Antioxidant Patent. Vitamin C is a highly-potent antioxidant that by its structure has difficultly being effectively absorbed on skin. The Duke Antioxidant patent describes the formulation parameters required for effective delivery of Vitamin C to skin: 1) pure l-ascorbic acid (vitamin C); 2) an acidic pH within the 2.0-3.5 pH range and; 3) a concentration between 10%-20%. SkinCeuticals is the only brand to formulate antioxidants according to these parameters. 

SkinCeuticals defines atmospheric skin aging as the visible result of a range of environmental aggressors on skin, including UV, infrared radiation (IRA), and pollution. Ongoing SkinCeuticals research shows that over-exposure to these aggressors may cause visible skin aging, and topical antioxidants can help prevent the impact to skin.

In the morning after cleansing and toning, apply 4-5 drops to a dry face, neck, and chest before other skincare products. May be used on the back of the hands. It is normal for vitamin C products to darken after opening due to air and light exposure. The formula will remain effective. Once opened, it is recommended to be used within 3 months of opening.

Complete your regimen with a SkinCeuticals sunscreen. When used together, SkinCeuticals antioxidants and broad spectrum sunscreens provide the most complete protection against visible aging caused by environmental aggressors.

For me, I used it in the morning under my sunscreen. I thought that would be most advantageous than using it in the evening, when I already had many serums to apply. I used it for 6 weeks. I did miss a few days when I had a kidney infection and was in the hospital. But otherwise I got right back on it and still managed to see results. I saw fading of hyperpigmentation, fading of uneven skin tone and the great thing about this serum is that is can also be used a little under the eyes, so it helps knock back eye circles too. With this product it is going to do anything a Vitamin C product will do only better. It will help wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, crow's feet, etc. I did experience a lightening of all of my facial skin. Lately my facial skin is in it's best condition ever. 

Skinceuticals Phloretin CF Broad-Range Anti-Oxidant Treatment Combining 2% Phloretin,10% L-Ascorbic Acid, % and 0.5% Ferulic Acid retails for $165.00 and can be purchased online at www.skinceuticals.com, www.skinstore.com, www.dermstore.com, www.bluemercury.com, www.skincarerx.com, and www.amazon.com as well as many physicians offices that specialize in SkinCeuticals and boutiques that carry the line too. Go to www.skinceuticals.com for more skincare information or ask myself at mariepapachatzis@gmail.com if you have questions about what skin type you fall into or have more info on skincare. I'd be happy to help. Like Skinceuticals on Facebook:https://www.facebook.com/SkinCeuticals; Follow Skinceuticals on Twitter:@SkinCeuticals; Follow Skinceuticals on Pinterest:https://www.pinterest.com/skinceuticals/; Follow Skinceuticals on Instagram:https://www.instagram.com/skinceuticals/; Follow Skinceuticals on Google+:https://plus.google.com/+skinceuticals and Subscribe to Skinceuticals on YouTube:https://www.youtube.com/user/skinceuticals.

Review: Clixit Acne Eraser #Clixit #AcneEraser

(product photo courtesy of www.clixit.com)

.946 fl.oz/2.8mL
Do you have irritating acne that just pops up all of a sudden? Not abundant acne but pimples once in a while? I have a great solution for you. It is called Clixit Acne Eraser and it heals acne fast with just one click. Formulated with a unique blend of healing and calming ingredients (including sulphur 10% to soothe and heal skin), this portable, discreet and unique Clixit Acne Eraser click pen works to visibly reduce inflammation and minimize the size of blemishes in 4-12 hours, while it also dries out, and heal active blemishes in 24 hours. In every pen there are about 450 applications. It also contains camphor, ethanol 40b and salicylic acid. 
This powerful FDA Registered formula is designed to dry out blemishes, promote quicker shedding of dead skin cells, dissolve excess oils and unclog pores. Acne lesions don't stand a chance. Plant extracts cool and calm irritated skin while delivering anesthetic (pain relief) and antimicrobial properties to promote quick healing.
If used daily, the Clixit Acne Eraser will:
  • heal acne fast
  • instantly cool and calm irritated skin
  • kill acne-causing bacteria
  • control oil (sebum) production
  • prevent future breakouts
These are all attainable goals that the Clixit Acne Eraser can provide for you. When used daily on the same area, it is likely that another blemish will occur in that area again. But ultimately you need to keep your skin at a better level of care. Even breaking out occasionally is telling me, an Esthetician, that you have a problem with sebum and dead skin cell control. What you need to do is increse the exfoliation of skin and possibly add a salicylic acid to your regimen to decrease oil production and also decrease cells sticking to the pore walls, causing blemishes of various kinds. For the blemishes that do occasionally crop up due to hormones, use the Clixit Acne Eraser

Clixit Acne Eraser is available online at www.clixit.com. They have a few other products available, to me the most notable are cell phone wipes. Keep your cell phone clean, it does lead to acne on the cheeks.
