This summer, it’s all about bright lips and flawless skin with a flush of radiant color so Arbonne has created a great lineup of new products and trendy pigments to enhance the complexion.
A few years ago I acquired a lovely set of Arbonne Smoothed Over Lipsticks and recently they have been redesigned and reformulated to provide even more nourishment and hydration. The new blend contains beneficial oils and fruit extracts to keep skin supple and healthy while drenching lips in lush, buttery color. The lipsticks are now thicker in diameter with a larger application surface that helps the glossy texture glide on easily and the finishes range from satiny-shine to radiant shimmer.
The color payoff varies by shade but overall the formula delivers sheer to medium coverage with the ability to be intensified and layered for more vibrancy. The new additions in red, pink and coral tones are perfect for the season and offer just enough illumination and shine to create a voluminous effect. The lipsticks retail for $29.00 each.
Arbonne also makes beautiful blush in a variety of flattering shades for all skin tones. When I tried the Berry powder it was love at first swatch and I just had to have it! The blush is silky, lightweight and smooth for seamless blending without accentuating skin texture and the micro-fine shimmer creates subtle radiance. The pigment is very buildable so you can deepen the contrast by layering and instantly boost a dull complexion. The blush retails for $32.00.

If you have blemished skin (and let’s face it, we’ve all had pimples) then a good concealer is essential for creating a flawless finish. Arbonne’s new liquid formula is available in 7 shades and provides full-coverage color to camouflage imperfections, dark circles, discoloration and signs of aging while hydrating and brightening. Because this is a cream product, it's wise not to cake it on too heavy. I use the wand for direct application by dabbing or swiping, lightly blending with a brush and then setting the area with powder. It corrects and covers everything that needs to be concealed for smooth, even skin. The concealer retails for $28.00 and the shades featured below are Tan (top) and Dark.
