Lipgloss Break

Makeup from Alice in Wonderland




Alice in Wonderland comes out this Friday, and I have a feeling it will be every makeup artist's dream come true. Lancôme ambassador Anne Hathaway portrays the White Queen, a role she was perfect for given her porcelain complexion. Her gorgeous skin was the focal point of her look at the London premiere of the film last week (as you can see in the picture). Makeup artist Kate Lee did the honors and also focused on Anne’s radiant eyes and smile. The dress, in case you’re wondering, is by Vivienne Westwood.

If you want to let your readers know how to get Anne’s premiere look, here are the products we suggest:

EYES: Le Stylo Waterproof Eyeliner in Prune; Color Design Eye Shadow in Ciel du Soir; Hypnôse Drama Mascara in Excessive Black

SKIN: Photôgenic Lumessence foundation in Ivoire 2C; Blush Subtil in Sheer Amourose
LIPS: L'Absolu Rouge lipstick in Rendez-Vous

Add a set of false eyelashes, and you’re ready for your date with the Mad Hatter.

Not a fan of waking up before the sun does? Toss Up You Gets Emotibomb ($3.95) into the shower! As the warm water hits the emotibomb, the uplifting citrus aroma awakens the senses. Lemon essential oil creates a cheerful atmosphere of freshness and purity, helping to dispel mental fatigue. Your mornings will be more bearable, or dare we say it, enjoyable!
Calm your mind and your senses so you can feel at peace during these cold winter months with Therapy Massage Bar ($8.75). This 100% organic shea and cocoa butter bar increases circulation and warms muscles. The lavender plays a major role to ease senses, calm the nervous system and relieve stress.

After a chilly walk home in the snow, wrap yourself up in The Comforter Bubble Bar ($8.75). A hot bath of fruity, blackcurrant bubbles provides instant warmth and comfort inside and out. Formulated with bergamot, the uplifting essential oil calms nerves and is recommended for people suffering from S.A.D. – or those with regular winter blues.

The ultra-violet colored shower gel is perfect for when the UV index is at zero. It contains neroli oil, an anti-depressant to help make it through the darkest of days. So lather up with this scent that will keep you smiling throughout the day.



Priti NYC Nail Polish



Check out this fun new nail polish line, Priti NYC. I recently got to try a few of their nail polishes and polish removers. The picture below is me wearing St. Catherine's Lace. With the Priti base coat, two coats of color, and a fast dry top coat, this polish stayed on really well and was super glossy. It went on super smooth, which is a plus for my peeling nails, and made for a streak free, easy application.
Priti's complete non-toxic nail polish line has been designed and specifically named after beautiful flowers and plants that they resemble (so creative!). Priti Polishes have been formulated without Toluene, DBP and Formaldehyde and does not contain any petroleum ingredients.

The word Priti has many meanings in Sanskrit, such as out of satisfaction, with love, and pleasurable sensation. The Priti line has been designed and created with some of the world's most naturally organic resources.

The polishes are $12.50 each, but definitely worth it if you're into nail polish. I've never had nail polish go on so smooth. I would say splurge on at least one color for your toes this summer.
