Beauty Find - Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion

Kendall Jenner is the new front woman for Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion (in an ad that made me really stop and take notice when flipping through my Fall Fashion Magazine issues).  

But beyond the ad campaign, the ideal of a moisturizing, liquid lipstick was very appealing to me with Fall here, so I gave Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion a go in a beautiful, brownish-plum neutral shade, Potion Bittersweet  (shown, above).

This is really an impressive product. Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion that goes on like a creamy lip gloss but settles instantly like a creamy, pigment rich lipstick.  It was non-sticky, lightweight and so easy to use since just one swipe on my upper and lower lip gave me full, rich color like in the tube.  

Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion was also intensely moisturizing with the perfect amount of slip for application.  The formula blends avocado, jojoba, and sunflower oils, but the finish is not slick or overly shiny looking - it's a very wearable satin-matte finish. 

I got about 4+ hours of full color after drinking and light drinking, and had to retouch about 1x during the day.  Although the color payoff was amazing, I did find that it could be layered for a more intense color effect with no heavy or sticky effect at all.  By the end of the day, my lips still felt soft and hydrated, with no flaky or dry areas.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion is the perfect, higher-end lip color for those of you who want the color payoff of a stain, the luxe feel of lipstick with chic packaging and real, long term moisture.

I'm already thinking about my next few shades I'll pick up, which will include that Kendall Jenner, Lethal Red - RLB

Beauty Find - Malin + Goetz Clarifying Clay Mask

After a hot and humid summer, and now changing temps as we move from late summer into early fall, skin can get a little temperamental.  Especially if you already have oily or acne prone skin.

So here's a great treatment. Malin+Goetz Clarifying Clay Mask not only helps minimize oil, but it actually cleanses and exfoliates all in one step.  It's gentle, but still very effective, so it's also going to be perfect for those of you with sensitive or combination skin.

The texture is thick and creamy with tiny granules for exfoliation.  It's made with kaolin clay, which helps absorb excess oil, powdered pumice to polish away dead skin, as well as witch hazel and arnica extract.

I applied and relaxed for about 5-10 minutes.  The mask doesn't dry to a super hard finish, and was very easy to rinse off.  As I mixed with the water to remove, that's when I got the exfoliation action from the granuals.

When I rinsed and dried off, my t zone was clear, soft and toned, with much less oil during the day. This is such an easy and effective treatment for women and men - every oily or combo skinned person should have this in their skincare collection. - RLB

Beauty Find - TonyMoly Panda's Dream Eye Patch

Pandas sure are cute, but their eye shape/coloring are not usually something you see in the U.S. associated with women's beauty - or skincare for that matter.

But TONYMOLY has found a way to combine advance sheet mask skincare with the concept of the Panda, and it works!

TONYMOLY Panda's Dream Eye Patch (shown, below) come in a pack of two black eye patches with a slit across them.  The patches have a very faint, fresh scent and contain a gel-like liquid made of bamboo shoot extract and vitamin B3 to brighten, hydrate and reduce fine lines and dryness around the eye area.

Each patch was slightly damp with liquid, and covered my entire eye area from the brow bone to just above my cheeks.  The slits allowed me to pull them down when I was applying them to my eyes and if needed to occasionally see something, but otherwise, I liked the soothing feeling of keeping the Eye Patch covered over my eyes.  The patches are very thin and the liquid didn't seep out or drip down from them on my face at all.

YES, I really did look like I had Panda eyes, but besides the novelty, these patches were extremely relaxing and soothing.  I left them on for 20 minutes.  Before removing them, much of the liquid had absorbed into my skin, so they were fairly dry when I took them off.

After removing them I loved how fresh, smooth and hydrated my eye area looked.  I used these about 1-2 times a week, and they made a real difference in the overall brightness of my eyes, and there was some reduction in puffiness as well.

TONYMOLY Panda's Dream Eye Patch is another Korean Skincare product perfect for travel or using after a gym or sauna session.  I love these (and the packaging too!)  - RLB
