Spray-on Flawless Legs

In Beauty on June 9, 2010 at 3:16 pm

Who doesn’t want legs that look model perfect when wearing a skirt or shorts? Sun spots, scars, shaving knicks, and life in general takes a toll on our epidermis. Say good bye to pantyhose and say hello to Sally Hansen’s Airbrush Legs the spray-on makeup for your gams. My girlfriend introduced me to this product a few year ago and I absolutely love it! It is definitely not just for the legs; I use this all over, especially on my arms and back. I just spray it directly on my skin and blend it in quickly. The coverage is awesome and it’s weightless, so no cakey, goopiness! It’s a sheer matte color; no shimmer or sparkle which gives a really natural looking tan. It really lasts too; you have to scrub to get it off.

It comes in four shades: Light Glow, Medium Glow, Tan Glow, and Deep Glow. My skin tans easily so I use Deep Glow. The best part about this product is that you can find this product in drugstores, Target, Walmart, Ulta, and CVS. It’s also super inexpensive, It retails for around $13.00 for a 4.4 oz can.

Buy It: Amazon
Cost: $12.79

Given that I live in Southern California, I am always on the hunt for great new sunglasses and recently, I feel in love with David Yurman’s Buckle Aviator Sunglasses. These precious-metal aviators, inspired by the original David Yurman buckle, are accentuated with the signature cable detail. These shades are the quintessential aviator style, so they look good on every face type!

Envite is the latest designer sample sale website to enter the ecosystem of designer-hungry women looking for a great deal online. Envite’s initiative was to filter out the most coveted and top tier designer brands from the pool of vogue and bring that to the end consumer at discounts of up to 80% off retail prices. After extensive planning and linking up with key strategic partners, ENVITE.com was created and launched in 2010, combining over 30 years of experience in luxury apparel and accessories with a mix of technological edge.

Just like Ruelala.com and Hautelook.com, Envite features top tier designers at a fraction of the suggested retail cost but the sales only last 24-48 hours…so if you see something your dying for, buy it (otherwise it will be gone).

Bronzed Beauty

Looking for that summer glow (as always) without the harmful effects of the sun? With the plethora of products on the market, I have recently fallen in love with Peter Thomas Roth‘s Bronze Instant Mineral SPF 30!! This light weight bronzer gives you an instant (and portable) sun kissed glow and protects you from the UVA/UVB rays with SPF 30.

Instant Mineral goes bronze— this finely milled powder creates a soft, residue-free layer of UVA/UVB SPF 30 protection and a customized, buildable, sunkissed glow. The convenient, easy-to-use brush applicator is perfect for touchups throughout the day. A unique dual-chamber component allows you to mix the transparent mineral powder with a mineral bronzer to create the perfect shade to suit your complexion. The dial allows you to control the amount of glow by choosing light, medium, or dark.
