Lip Lacquer Magic

With Style Meganzine turning one year, I thought it was time to get blogging again. It’s been an amazing year with lots of new beginnings and I truly appreciate all the support from all of you.

Today I want to talk about my new favorite product. Shiseido Lacquer Rouge is the perfect combination of stain and gloss. Inspired by Japanese lacquerware, one coat of this gloss provides intense color and deep luster. The formula improves dry, rough, or peeling lips, and leaves your pucker very moisturized. And you never get that icky bleed some rich colors can leave. I love both Disco (RS 404) which is a very vibrant pink and Drama (RD 501) which is the perfect red. Disco took some getting used to as I never wear such bright color, but it really wakes me up. Because it’s a stain, the color lasts all day, and I really only reapply once. Yep, it’s that moisturizing!
Here’s a little secret I shared with the girls at the Shiseido counter-this lacquer is also the most amazing cheek tint. I know, you’d think it would be too sticky, but it actually blends in perfectly. Word of warning, a little bit goes A LONG way. Just the tiniest bit on your fingertip is all you need for rosy cheeks. I’ve also found it’s a great way to look refreshed when you’re having a long day. Dot, dot, and you look instantly revived!

Oh yeah-the tube is small enough to fit into any purse which is great. No more lugging gloss, stain, lipstick, blush, and brush-you have all of that in one tube!

Pore Refinement

This time of year we all start feeling a little more greasy and our faces take on an unwanted shine. There are many products out there that can help keep this problem at bay, but Clinique has created a new little miracle that really does keep your skin grease-free while giving it just the right amount of hydration.
Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Stay-Matte Hydrator is an oil-free and non-acnegenic hydrator that instantly refines the look of pores with unique light-scattering optics and controls unwanted luster on your face. It controls oil and shine and your t-zone stays fresh and matte for up to 8 hours. Using this twice a day will give you a renewed appearance and your skin will glow, not shine. And that is just what I want and need during the hot summer months.

Trust me when I say this will keep the shinies away. I suffer from oily skin and this does wonders. My skin looks radiant and comfortably matte.
