Just launched: Rose Gold Collection!!

Fall is steadily creeping up on us and now, you can face it down with all the beauty and style rose gold can give.  Let’s face it, there is something about rose gold that transfixes us.  It is that perfect combination of warmth and light, sunlight and sunset.  Pink, gold and silver all rolled into one heart stopping color.

Now, you can enjoy this color with our new Rose Gold Collection.  This collection sees the return of a cult favorite Rosé All Day  LipSense and gives us the new Rose Gold Gloss in addition to the wildly popular Rose Gold Glitter ShadowSense.

If you thought our Tropical and Coastal Collections sold out quickly, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

The Power of Makeup

I am about to do something I never would have thought, Share of a photo of myself with out makeup…sort of.  I went down a few Youtube rabbit holes and one of the videos I love watching are the power of make-up videos.  For the uninitiated, in these videos, people do one half of their make-up as glam and fabulous as they want, while keeping the other side bare.

power

I like these videos because it helps demystify how we see ourselves, especially in relation to the idealized media standards.  I enjoy  them because it is nice to see that underneath the make-up and the years of training spent trying to perfect it, they usually look a lot like me, like many of us.

Makeup for me used to be something I did for fun as a form of self expression, then for too many years, it was done to help me blend in, to fade away from notice.   Now, I am back.  I love playing around with makeup again.  Grabbing a handful of LipSense and mixing and working with colors until I create the one that suits my mood.  I feel great about myself.  And it isn’t about what others think, it is about what makes me feel strong, confident, fun and excited.  And that can be anything.  For some it’s wearing red lipstick to the grocery store,  or finding the perfect sun-kissed look while laying at the pool.

If I could offer one piece of advice, it would be, listen to yourself.  Listen to what makes YOU happy. Wear what brings you joy.  Don’t worry if you can wear that color, do it,  wear the color and have a blast doing it.

Key Ingredients and Benefits

  • SenePlex Complex™ – Kinetic Enzyme that increases cellular renewal.
  • Glucosamine HCL – enhances the body’s ability to manufacture collagen.
  • Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil – an effective herbal remedy to treat eczema and skin conditions.
  • Simmondsia Chinensis – Jojoba Seed Oil (Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil) acts as a moisturizer and emollient agent to improve the skin elasticity and suppleness, containing natural Tocopherol to minimize oxidation and lipid pre oxidation.
  • Rosa Mochata Seed Oil – or rosehip seed oil is derived from cold pressing hips of the rare forest shrub (Rosa affinis rubiginosa or Rosa moschata) found growing in southern central Chile in the shadow of the Andes Mountains. This member of the rose family has flowers that are pink in color, and when the petals fall, the shrub develops vivid, orangey-red seed pods called rosehips. This rosehip oil has been used by local people for its soothing and moisturizing properties. The oil was found not only to help halt the advancement of aging but to actually lessen the appearance of aging and scarring, while restoring natural skin tone and color.
  • Santalum album (Sandalwood) Oil – assists with chapped, dry or inflamed skin and has wonderful moisturizing and hydrating properties. The toning effect is useful when fighting oily skin.
  • Algae (Seaweed) Extract – hydrates, protects skin from the sun, and softens the skin. It is essential in the penetration of the top layer of the stratum corneum and enhances the skin’s ability to repair itself.
  • Cymbidium Grandiflorum (Orchid) Flower Extract – a plant native to the South Pacific, which has long been a source of excellence for the preparation of emollient products. This powerful anti-oxidant provides free-radical protection and maximum moisturization. The orchid extract is very effective as a sunscreen.

 

Nangai Oil $45   *

26733907_10155352613875369_4664854818135702523_n

Sun damaged skin? Nagai Oil is another product that needs to find it’s way into your life. Simple and complex at the same time, Nangai Oil with SenePlexComplex is a critical part of the Senegence Skin Care line.  It works in tandem with other products to increase and retain skin moisture.

Water is the most important component in skin, and is necessary for 99.9% of all reactions. The biggest way you lose water is through the skin as you perspire. The older you become, the larger the pores in your skin become, and therefore more water is lost through perspiration. Loss of water leads to unwanted signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, and dry skin texture.

With the goal to maintain appropriate moisture levels in skin, we reviewed and surveyed high-end cosmetic preparations, and they all had 2 things in common:

  1. Water
  2. Triglycerides- specifically caprylic/capric triglycerides

Caprylic/Capric triglycerides are derived from coconut oil and glycerin, and come in the form of an oily liquid. The triglycerides are mixed esters composed of caprylic and capric fatty acids. Caprylic/capric triglyceride has a number of useful properties in the formulation of cosmetics and skin care. It creates a barrier on the skin’s surface, decreasing the amount of moisture lost through the skin. Therefore, the triglyceride prevents dryness and also acts as a conditioning agent.
