Lip Perfection Gel
Per-fekt Beauty's Richard Anderson obviously loves his products. When speaking about the new Lip Perfection Gel ($60 for a set of three), he talks about why this gel is actually an alternative to the traditional lipstick, gloss and plumper. This is really a multitasking lip perfector that does brilliantly in the hydrating department.
You don't have to worry about whether or not the moisture will stay on your lips: It will. There's no sticky or tacky feeling because the blend contains hyaluronic microspheres for lip hydration and peptides to stimulate collagen production. In other words, this is a gel that will make you feel very grown up and young at the same time! There's also natural spearmint in the gel that acts as a terrific breath freshener.
There are several shades, too:
Our verdict? These are delightful alternatives to your traditional gloss and lipstick, and you can buy them individually at Per-fekt Beauty's site ($24). Plus, each gel has a cute flower design at the tip -- ready for application. Who can be bothered with lip brushes, right?
Lash Perfection Gel
The other new debut for the summer is not quite a mascara, but looks like a mascara. It's a Lash Perfection Gel ($30) which conditions, lengthens and separates the lashes in one sweep. It's silky smooth and really does work beautifully (think of it as a primer, mascara and conditioner for your peepers). Each Lash Perfection Gel has a multi-leveled coiled brush that fits well on the lash line.
The formulation, with olive-derived ester, rice bran, carnauba and candelilla waxes, marine plant glycogen and hyaluronic microspheres among others, makes this a winning mascara alternative.
