Overseas Trends You Should Try Now

 Sent for review. 

The Asian markets are all about skincare and, scientifically, their products are usually a few years ahead of what we have here. However, you can implement a few of the most popular trends into your life without crazy shipping delays or expensive shipping charges. So what are the trends you should check out?

Avoiding the sun is one of the most important things you can do to help stop aging and prevent wrinkles. Even when you're using a sunscreen, more protection is a good idea. ParaSun has perfected the personal sun protection umbrella. From the design features to the fabric itself, this umbrella is genius.

First of all, there is no odd closure tab that flops. It's very easy to open and close, even with wet hands. the umbrella uses two layers of fabric to reflect the heat and keep you dry. And more than 98% of UVA and 99% of UVB rays are blocked, giving you the SPF protection of a 50+.  And it's really quite small, so you can take it everywhere. $59.99 at

Drink your collagen? Say what now? Reservage Nutrition offers up Collagen Replenish, an easy way to give your body a superdose of Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen Peptides. You just mix a bit of the powder in a room temperature beverage. It's flavorless, odorless and colorless (really). So many women swear by vitamin powders for your skin and this is one of the best. $18.00

I just discovered the beauty website Peach and Lily. It's the perfect place to shop for the latest cosmetics and skincare from Korea and Japan. Shipping is free if you purchase more than $50 and less than $7 if you don't.

My favorites? I'm loving the colors and flavor behind the Peripera Lip Tints. The mango is a gorgeous red (on me) that tastes almost too good. I'm also into the super pale cushion blushers from Peripera.

Pleased Pink gives you a barely-there baby hue that is somehow super innocent and a little devilish at the same time. Refer a friend and you'll get $10 towards your next purchase. Love it!

Lipstick League: What Was Your First Lipstick?

Question of the Week: Name the very first lipstick you ever purchased (if you can’t remember, pick the earliest one you remember purchasing). This is an easy one for me. I got my first lipstick for Christmas when I was about four or five. I still have it. Oddly, it's whore red. The 70's were a different time.

Beauty Challenge: Can You Pick the High End Look?

Sent for review. Purchased by me. Contains affiliate links. 

So here's the deal. I wrote up this FOTD post the other day and realized that MY GODS THAT IS AN EXPENSIVE FACE. Which is totally cool. I feel fancy in that face. But I don't need my mom laying in wait to kill me because I bought a colorless primer for $35. I'd end up looking over my shoulder at every second, waiting for her to jump out from behind a parked car and beat me with sticks. My mom doesn't play around (ask my cousin Wormy).

Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet+ Matifying Foundation

Purchased by me. Contains affiliate links.

Make Up For Ever nails foundations, don't they? My friend Melody at can't stop raving about their new HD formula on Facebook. But since my Sephora didn't have the new formula yet, I opted to try the Mat Velvet + Matifying. I am not your typical candidate for this foundation, so let's get that out of the way, right now. I have very dry skin. This foundation is meant for people with oilier skin.

Double Ego Eyeliners from Pur Minerals

Sent for review. I bought this. Contains affiliate links.

Love thrifty luxury but hate oxymorons? Look no further than the new(ish) Double Ego Eye Liners. One side is a gorgeous liquid liner with the finest tip and the other side is a smudgeable, long wearing pencil liner in a matching shade.
