Travel Retail Exclusives 2012
Estee Lauder Portable Makeup Brush Collection **
FEATURING: Estee Lauder travel sized Eye Shadow Brush, Foundation Brush, Blush Brush and Powder Brush housed in a sleek deep blue zipper clutch.
These handy travel sized brushes may have shorter handles for easy portability – but they are not short quality. The full sized brush heads are plush – if only a slight bit smaller than their taller counterparts. The Powder Brush and Blush Brush have the ideal size for applying face powders (finishing, bronzer, highlighter, blush) – pressed powders are best for travel. The mutli-purpose Foundation Brush can be used to apply cream products like BB cream, foundation or cream blush. The Eye Shadow Brush can easily be used to apply cream concealer or shadows.
TRAVEL TIP: Sometimes travel sized brushes can feel a bit awkward. Get accustomed to your travel set by actually using them. Work them into your daily routine – once your brushes are broken in, they will feel more familiar and be easier to use. Be sure to wash and thoroughly dry your brushes a few days prior to travel.

FEATURING: Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Moisturizing Balm SPF 25 (.5 fl.oz.), Bobbi Brown Extra Soothing Balm (.24 fl.oz.), Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Repair Cream (.5 oz.), Bobbi Brown Crystal Lip Gloss (.5 fl.oz.), Black Eye Mask.
HYDRATE with Extra Moisturizing Balm SPF 25. This rich moisturizer feels like “buttah” (not butter) or the skin and is a life saver for parched skin conditions. TIP: Use it on the tops of your hands for intense hydration and sun protections (hands get spotty too!). REST WELL (or just look like it) with award winning Extra Eye Repair Cream. This has become an instant favorite for sealing in moisture and instantly smoothing fine lines. Pop on your Eye Mask and call it a night. Get the GLOW with Extra Soothing Balm – a multi-purpose product that can be used on lips, cheeks, cuticles – anywhere you need a moisturizing boost.

REVIEW: The Superdefense Moisturizer in Dry/Combination has a medium weight texture and worked well over a variety of serums without feeling heavy or greasy. It is a great AM option, particularly for those with younger (<30) skin. The Superdefense Eye Cream did not offer a lot of moisture, but is an excellent “top coat” over your existing eye products to add protection to the delicate (and wrinkle-prone) eye area.

This is also a good skin care regimen for younger skins who want to maintain a youthful glow.
Clinque De-Puff & De-Circle Set **
FEATURING: (2) Clinque All About Eyes Serum | De-Puffing Eye Massage (.5 fl. oz. each)
PRICE: $28 for one
“Portable, instantly cooling eye refresher. Combats dark circles, puffs.”
REVIEW: I’ve tried several cooling eye products to target my eye area which gives away how tired I am regardless of my demeanor. Clinique All About Eyes Serum is a surprisingly “cool” roller ball product that dispenses an effective caffeine driven formula that really gets puffs under control. The ball actually feels cool to the touch and is a refreshing pick me up during the day.
As an eye treatment for long term results, Clinique All About Eyes Serum needs to be paired with a more pro-active formula and those with deep wrinkles and dry skin will be unsatisfied with the amount of moisture this provides (its not really meant to perform in that area). Still, this neat little roller ball does what it says and makes puffy eyes disappear and gives even dark circles a slightly more refreshed appearance.
