I Love the Capucine Color!
In my obsessive hunt to bring you the best of all things Spa. Product. Organics. and Travel. I often find myself scouring the internets. Lately lots of this scouring has focused on Sephora's blog as one of their writers is as obsessed as I am with Benefit Cosmetics. When I came across this photo of the Nars online exclusive limited edition Miami Sun Set I fell into the orange colored lip lacquer the second I laid eyes on it. The Capucine is the same exact color of my summer nail obsession (L'Oreal Coral Blaze 411). Rather than order the set online, I went straight to Sephora and purchased the lip lacquer. Let me tell you it's true what they say about love at first sight. I never knew lip color until I met Capucine. Although it appears bold and punky in the jar it looks as beautiful as a southern summer sunset when applied. In fact I can't exactly identify it as orange on my lips. Rather its looks like some deeply fascinating yet blurry dot on the windows color matrix, and it brightens all of my features, and compliments my skin tone all at the same time. Surprisingly, this summer my beauty love life is tangled up in orange and although unexpected it's a stunning evolution nonetheless.

Heaven on Earth
Apparently BHA is the wonder-ingredient in many Murad products. It would never occur to me to put a glycolic into a lip balm. Luckily it did occur to Dr. Murad. I can not explain with words how much pleasure I get from coating my lips in this gooey liquid but I imagine (if ice cream could feel) it's similar to the absolute exuberant joy the soft serve at Dairy Queen feels right after it gets dipped in the liquid chocolate. Gooey, smooth, dewy, velvety, full lovely lips. Thank you Dr. Murad. The healing properties of the BHA, Lanolin, and Vitamin E in this lip and skin therapy are noticeable in only a few days. Also, my sample size is no larger than half of my pinkie finger, has lasted two weeks, and is only half empty. I will happily shell out the $14 for the full size when this sample runs out.

Cirtus Lip Heaven
This is my favorite lip plumper/balm. It is organic and you can feel your lips swell but in a very subtle way. The citrus scent is lovely and you will never want to use any other product on your lips again! So So worth the cost. Organicly plumped lips? Oh yes!

My new essential product
I always wondered how some women just had that glamourous finished look. Now I know. They are using Anastasia's brow powder. This changes my entire look in about 10 seconds and its beautiful every time.

Deep Spring Cleaning
George Korres, the pharmacist who began Korres Natural Products in 1989, began this ingenious line of homeopathic skin care products by purchasing the oldest pharmacy in Athens, Greece. Clearly he was making a statement and all I have to say to that statement is YES! Korres natural products combine the finest Medicinal Herbs (Echinacea, Thyme, Gingo biloba, Ginseng, Hamamelis, Evening primrose, Aloe vera), Greek Flora (Mastiha from the island of Chios and Saffron Krokus from the village Krokus in Kozani, northeastern Greece), food ingredients (edible Yoghurt and Greek Thyme Honey), and high-efficacy natural ingredients (Hibiscus, Argan, Andiroba, Wild Mango, Mourera fluviatilis, Imperata cylindrica, Sunflower) into exotic, earth-friendly, Grecian-made skin care solutions. Currently they are also providing the solution to my spring fever in the form of a highly potent clay and acid based face mask. Spring fever arrived for me today not so much in its common form, the unbearable desire to mate, but in the form of loud, undeniable restlessness. In preparation for my upcoming week featuring earth friendly products and spas I have been doing massive amounts of research on the best the beauty world has to offer. With every click I find a new spa to put on the "must visit" list and a new product, derived from local European, African, or Asian Herbs. And all my spring fever can say, loudly, resoundingly is "Go!". Go west. Go there. Go anywhere but here. But it's a Wednesday afternoon and I have to be at work at 8 am so I can't very well go to Greece tonight. But my face can. My face is currently enjoying the sebum-absorbing properties of the Zinc and Phytic Acid found in Korres Chlorophyll Deep Cleansing Mask. If my spring fever can't produce instant gratification in the form of a spontaneous move to San Francisco or a Spa Retreat in Napa Valley, at least my beauty products can summon instant gratification and produce instant results. The zinc is, as I write, absorbing sebum. The Phyctic acid is lightening my skin and acting as an atni-oxidant. The jojoba oil is enhancing the suppleness of my skin. I wonder if George Korres set out to make a completely satisfactory product for the ailments of spring fever, what local Greek ingredients would he use? Well perhaps my spring fever is not entirely focused on wild cross country adventures. If I can't instantly satisfy this wildly demanding spring fever I am at least happy to report on the instant gratification of my skin. This afternoon I had hormonal, pimply, blah skin. Now, post-mask I am oil free, smooth, supple and at least in terms of skin care as satisfied as possible.
