new: clinique chubby cheek colour balm.

{color me rosy}
last week i went on my annual pilgrimage to coney island with some of my blogging besties.  of course, conversation included which fall beauty products we're testing, and loving.  near the top of my (and the lovely sarah conley's) list was clinique chubby cheek colour balm.  

like their chubby sticks for lips and eyes, the cheek version is addictively easy to use.  i just take the fat crayon to the apples of my cheeks, then blend with my fingers for a healthy flush.  currently available in 4, very wearable, shades; robust rhubarb, amp'd up apple (my new go-to), roly poly rosy, and plumped up peony.  $21 at clinique.com.

reivew: immunocologie skincare.

{immune to bad skin}

surely you are familiar with the cold press juice craze, where fruits and vegetables are kept chilled while extracting their juices in order preserve the vitamins and nutrients.  in the same vein, immunologie makes cold pressed skincare from natural ingredients.  the elixirs are then housed in a thick black glass to preserve their integrity (and look elegant on one's skin).

while im not sure i necessarily ascribe to the cold pressed philosophy, if seeing is believing than count me as a convert. i recently met one of the founders of this line who is in her 70s, has never had a needle put to her face, and has not on deep wrinkle.   when i asked her for the one beauty essential she'd recommend from the line, she didn't miss a beat in telling me that the vital mist is an absolute must-have, and gently spritzing the skin refreshing formula on my face.  on my face out from our meeting i ran into an old friend who complimented on how well-rested i'm looking (ha!).  i'm hoping to take this beauty booster with my everywhere, but especially on my transatlantic flight this coming weekend.

vital mist is $65.  entire line available at immunologie.com.

{2 hues:  vivien and lana}
i have vivien (red plum, retailer exclusive) and lana (bright orange red).  both of which are irresistible in their own ways.  i love how clean and true to their descriptions the colors wear.

fancy feast broths.

{i'm so fancy}


don't worry, this isn't turning into a cat blog (yet...).  but don't the fancy feast cat and i look good together?!  i had the (amazing) opportunity to meet her a few weeks ago, at an event launching fancy feast broths, their newest feline treat.

the individual packs contain a soupy mix with real fish.   since twizzler has a somewhat restricted diet her pal mittens ended up get to try the classic flavored broth (tuna, shrimp and whitefish).  according to mittens' human she ate it enthusiastically.  this chicken soup for the kitty cat soul, available in 8 flavors. to learn more visit fancyfeast.com.
