The Lipstick League – week of 2.27.17
Question of the Week: Do you plan to incorporate the Pantone 2017 Color of the Year (Greenery) in to your beauty looks this year? If so, how?
I don’t like green makeup – I prefer to make my green eyes pop with purple and mauve shades. However, I love redness-reducing products like green primers and this amazing green moisturizer that I’m using to fade acne spots!
ilike is one of those amazing salon/spa brands that you really need to have on your radar. I first learned about the brand during a facial years ago, and I was immediately hooked. Their Stonecrop Whipped Moisturizer helps to combat sun damage – it can fade age spots, hyperpigmentation and acne scars. When you apply it, you get an immediate redness color correction effect, so it’s great as a makeup primer. And over time it can help to even out your skin tone. I’m a bit sensitive to citric acid (from Vit C), but if you’re not, then you can even use it after hair removal or chemical peels to protect and soothe your skin and prevent pigmentation. The stonecrop and yarrow in the formula are extremely nourishing and soothing. It’s cruelty free, gluten free, vegan, and certified BDIH organic.
