Body Care Find - Clio Designs Palmperfect Electric Shaver for Women

Clio Designs Palmperfect Electric Shaver 
I've discovered a handy and (cute!) new tool for quick, easy shaving.  The Clio Designs Palmperfect Electric Shaver  is a palm sized, lightweight electric shaver.  It works with 2 replaceable AAA batteries (although they were included in the pack I received).

Clio Designs Palmperfect Electric Shaver  was perfect for light to medium shaving needs for underarms, bikini area and legs.  I only needed to lightly go over my skin with the razor, since there was no need to press down hard to shave the hair off.  I got the best results using the on hair that had just had a few days growth (about a 1/4 of an inch).  Note: If your hair is longer than 1/2 inch, you will feel slight pulling as you use the shaver, which may be uncomfortable for you.

All I had to do is press the button on the Clio Palmperfect Cordless Shaver and it began buzzing away.  I went over the area about 3-4 times to get the close shave I like, and I also used it with both dry and wet shaving in the shower successfully.  With either type of shaving, the Clio Palmperfect Cordless Shaver for Women glided easily over my skin.and I could shave any areas I needed to because of it's curved, palm sized design  Once I was done, my skin was never irritated or nicked.  I used the Clio Palmperfect Cordless Shaver for Women about 2x week on average.

Beauty Find - Giorgio Armani Beauty Lip Maestro

Giorgio Armani Beauty Lip Maestro 202 

I've featured a few new liquid lipstick matte formulas recently, but if you're in the market for a luxe version from the the one and only maestro of fashion, Giorgio Armani, the Lip Maestro  is hands down one of the best.

From the formula to the finish and the signature packagingGiorgio Armani Beauty Lip Maestro is a fantastic lip product to treat yourself to.

Giorgio Armani Beauty Lip Maestro is extremely pigmented, creamy and smooth going on.  It's a lip stain that gives a velvet matte finish and most importantly - moisture.  My lips never looked or felt dry, and the liquid going on wasn't sticky, gummy or oily in feel.  The texture is a gel-cream hybrid and one coat is all I needed for complete opaque color.The applicator is plush and soft and allowed the product to spread across my lips seamlessly.

My favorite shade was a pinky-brown nude, Lip Maestro 202. This nude in particular, will look great on women with light and darker brown skin.  The finish, although matte, has a velvet look with just a touch or luminosity which makes it unique.

Lip Maestro 402 
I loved my Lip Maestro 202 so much I also decided to get a beautiful red, and Lip Maestro 402  was just what I wanted.  It's a vibrant blue based red that looks great on many skin tones.  For both shades I got about 6 hours of wear with eating/drinking before I needed a touch up.  I only did one touch up per day and my color stayed true until I removed it at night.  During the day, my lips continued to feel soft, plump and moist, with no smudging, bleeding or flaking.

I also love the Giorgio Armani Beauty Lip Maestro red packaging, which looks and feels expensive and chic whether I'm taking out of my bag or on my vanity in my lipstick case. 

There are also so many shades to choose from in the Giorgio Armani Beauty Lip Maestro collection.  You're sure to find more than a few you'll love.  There are 18 Shades in all, including multiple gorgeous reds, pinks, peachy tones and coral shades.  - RLB

Fragrance Find - CHANEL Gabrielle Chanel Eau de Parfum

One of CHANEL's newest scents is an ode to the founder, Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel.  Created by Olivier Polge, GABRIELLE CHANEL was inspired by the idea of an imaginary flower.  The scent is based on a four white flower note structure.  Exotic Jasmine, fruity green ylang-ylang, fresh sparkling orange blossom and grasse tuberose.  The four flowers are represented by the four corners in the raised glass bottle design.

Like many CHANEL scents,GABRIELLE CHANEL has complexity and longevity, but it stays close to the skin with a very small "fragrance arc".  That means you'll never announce your arrival in a room with the scent.  I loved the opening notes, which were bright and yet rich at the same time.  On my skin the orange blossom was very prominent, with it being balanced by the slightly sweet ylang-ylang.  

With a morning application,GABRIELLE CHANEL lasted on me about 8-10 hours, and developed into a richer floral that dried down with a crisp, warm feel.  I think this is perfect for Fall and Winter in particular, and it is as versatile for day and it is for night.

CHANEL GABRIELLE is quite concentrated, (I only used 2-4 spritzes each time), so rest assured if you're treating yourself to this scent, the price tag gives you many months of wear, even with frequent use.  

I especially love using an extra spritz for the hair or clothing since it lingers like a light veil the entire day.  To keep CHANEL GABRIELLE with you while you travel, there's a 1.7 ounce version as well.

CHANEL GABRIELLE also makes a beautiful beauty gift for that fragrance lover in your life. The CHANEL GABRIELLE bottle design is stunning and perfect to adorn any dresser.  The label and the stopper have a lamé color, along with and a blend of gold and silver. The fragrance liquid itself is a gorgeous gold color. Stunning! - RLB
