I've been combatting the heat and humidity with per-fékt beauty products, including the lash perfection gel and lip perfection gel that just launched this summer.
The lash perfection gel ($30) works as a primer, mascara and conditioner. It's my go-to mascara that dries fast and doesn't smudge or clump up and is flake free. It has a multi-leveled coiled brush that lifts and volumizes lashes.
Many of per-fékt products such as the lip perfection gel ($24), are formulated with Smart Color Technology, which creates the perfect color match for any skintone. The lip perfection gel is a silky smooth sheer color gel with rich conditioners, vitamins pure pigments and beneficial anti-aging ingredients that add definition and texture to the lips. This color infused lip perfector improves the appearance of dry or chapped lips, lip lines, thin lips and helps smooth away the appearance of fine lines. Jojoba delivers an extra boost of moisture, keeping the lips hydrated and fresh, with a hint of natural spearmint that adds a slight cooling sensation. I sometimes wear the lip perfection gel by itself or as a primer under lip gloss or lipstick for a smooth, satin finish.
Check out the Per-Fekt Lip for Henri Bendel set ($60), a Hollywood glamour inspired lip trio, including Vine, Hollywood and Melrose shades.
One of my most coveted per-fékt products is the eye perfection gel ($45), which comes in three shades - bright, refreshed and vibrant. The palladium tip applicator creates a natural cooling sensation around the eyes, and is even intensified when refrigerated (perfect for days that are over 90+ degrees!). Combined with Cucumber Extract, it helps to reduce the appearance of puffy, tired looking eyes and eliminates the appearance of dark shadows. When used on the lid, the eye perfection gel decreases redness and doubles as an eye shadow primer.
The skin perfection gel takes the place of using foundation, which is sometimes too heavy to wear in hot weather, while the body perfection gel is an alternative to bronzers and streaky self-tanners. No need to apply any lotion before wearing this. The gel-to-powder formulation glides on effortlessly to tone the appearance of your legs, arms and décolleté.
