Crazy for Coconut!

I didn’t know there were 5 types of coconut.

Did you?

Apparently, that’s what is in the new Marc Jacobs Beauty Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer ($44). With delicious nutrients in the primer for your skin to drink up, it also extends the longevity of your makeup, and provides smooth, beautiful skin.

The cult favorite Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation has met its match. Now in 8 shades, the new ‘Luminous Silk’ Compact ($62) will offer you impeccable coverage and a gorgeous finish when paired with the Luminous Silk Foundation.

I myself love my Luminous Silk Foundation, but the color is a wee bit too dark at the moment. I might have to mix in something lighter or buy a new bottle! But the finish and lasting power is amazing on my oily skin, granted that I set with a powder. Preferably a translucent one to let the luminosity shine through!

I’m talking about a CREAM blush that is absolutely beautiful on all skin types, perfect for the summer and hot weather.

Make ’em GEL-ous!

Introducing a new addition to the SEPHORA COLLECTION brand, the Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer! Not only does this lightweight, gel-serum like concealer cover up those undereyes, but it contains pineapple ceramide to help improve skin texture and add additional brightness. Now THAT’S multi-tasking!

I’m seeing more and more brands come out with their own lightweight but oh-so-intensely-pigmented products, and Sephora’s own line is no exception!

Comes in 20 shades, $14 for 0.14 oz each.
