The Scent Map

Today as I was reading a few of my favorite blogs, I stumbled across a post by Spoiled Pretty in which she discusses a great new website, Scent Map.  This website is perfect for gift buying, especially for clueless boyfriends. You simply enter your current scent and the scent map will pull up four fragrances that it believes you will like according to the original scent you entered.  I tested it out with one of my all time favorites and was ecstatic to find four new perfumes to test out!

Nars Makeup Primer with SPF

I absolutely love the original Nars makeup primer for its high vitamin content, its silky texture and the way it makes my skin feel in general.  I am absolutely ecstatic to have discovered that my beloved primer now comes in an SPF version! I have pale, Irish skin and so I am constantly slathering on sunscreen and this product will allow me to cut back on the number of products applied...oh how I love products that multitask! The primer includes UVA and UVB protection as well as Active Phytoseed complex which provides intense hydration for parched skin (just what I need with winter well on its way)! Also this product is SPF 20, which is what dermatologists recommend for daily wear! So ladies, I highly encourage you to snap this product up! I promise, you won't regret it!

Super Orgasm!

Nars blush in Orgasm has been one of my no-fail beauty weapons since my sophomore year in high school and here I am, a senior in college and Im still using it.  you can imagine my delight when I discovered that Nars was releasing a new shade, Super Orgasm, modeled after the original.  This particular blush is an enhanced version of Orgasm with more goldish glitter, and overall brighter.  I haven't been able to get my hand on it yet, but rest assured when I do, I am almost positive it will become a part of my daily routine!

Biore Skin Boosting Night Serum

I have one embarrassing guilty pleasure....Biore nose strips...I know I know they are gross but I am addicted to them! Anyways, as I was picking up my box of nose strips, I stumbled across this little wonder product.  This light, silky serum is applied to skin at night and I kid you not makes you wake up looking like you just had a facial! The oil free formula evens out skin tone, reduces redness and improves the overall look and texture of skin.  I have also found that this product makes an amazing makeup primer! It soaks into skin quickly leaving skin matte, dewy and ready for makeup application.  I love this product for the dry, cold air that we have been having lately, it keeps my skin moisturized and glowing!
