Color, Plump, and Treat: The Per-fekt Lip

Posted by    |    June 22nd, 2012 at 8:55 am

It takes more than just A-list celebs using a product to get me interested.  I want to spend my hard-earned dollars on products that actually give beautiful results and hold up under the summer heat.  It also makes me feel good about investing in products that are cruelty and paraben-free….I just can’t carry around a beauty product that isn’t good for me or for friendly little critters everywhere.  It’s these things that drew me to the Per-fekt line of beauty products.  I’d seen them in stores like Sephora and Henri Bendel and heard countless celebs touting the miracles of the skin perfection gel, but it wasn’t until recently that I found out about the lip perfection gel.

Finally! Non-waxy, non-sticky lips....

I am a total lip gloss, lip plumper, lipstick, and lip treatment junkie.  Anything to do with lips, and I want in.  I feel like I have tried just about everything out there, so I know a good lip product when I try one.  When I say the Per-fekt lip perfection gels are the real deal, they are the real deal. No brush, no sponge, no make-up artist required to get hydrated, firm lips, beautiful color, and long-lasting plump.  Don’t you just hate that tacky feel you get with heavy glosses and the waxy build-up of lipstick?  I did, which was one of my motivating factors in checking this new product out.  I love the look of lip plumpers, but the tingling, burning feeling isn’t my favorite thing.  With the gel, you can forgo that and just have full, pretty lips-no burning required.

Henri Bendel Lip Perfection Gel Set

I’m pretty picky about color, so luckily there are several to choose from.  Fountain is clear, Vine (the color I personally can’t get enough of,) is a burgundy wine, Hollywood is a lovely red, Melrose is plum, Paramount is a cool pink, and Sunset is a sheer apricot.  If you can’t part with your favorite lipstick, try clear Fountain on top of it for a stain gloss. The best part- you can try three gorgeous shades in a new set from Henri Bendel here in Dallas.  For $60, you can have three universally flattering shades that look good on you when you’re pale, tan, naturally mocha….you get the idea.  (I also hit up the Per-fekt YouTube channel for some tips and hints with their other products, which is helpful when you don’t have a “red carpet-ready” team.)

Love to color your lips again!  Lip Perfection gel is what lip lovers have been waiting for.

Mid-Week Must Haves

Posted by    |    September 15th, 2010 at 12:45 pm

Every Wednesday I am going to be bringing you my picks for Mid-Week Must Haves.  This week, it’s a few beauty products that will take your fall makeup and pump it up a little.  I came across this first product courtesy of the stylish and adorable Jeune Marie blog-the Urban Decay Naked collection.  This palette has the absolute perfect neutral shades to go with all the muted fall colors.  It’s so wildly popular that it’s out of stock at the moment, but keep your eyes peeled for it. (No pun intended.)

Next is the Make Up Forever Rouge Artist Intense lipsticks, which are richly pigmented and are supposed to last until the last sip of Perrier.  I am a huge fan of Make Up Forever because their HD line of powders and blushes are what I use for on camera, and they stay on all day.  (Barring any outrageous humidity like we’ve been experiencing.) I hear No. 37 is the color to try, so I’m heading to Sephora later today to scope it out.
