Beauty Innovation – Sonia Kashuk Complexion Perfector

This is a brilliant idea from one of my favorite budget beauty lines, Sonia Kashuk!

For those of you who alternate between a foundation brush and a makeup sponge, the Sonia Kashuk Complexion Perfector is the perfect tool. I used the brush for my foundation and then simply turned it around and used the sponge to blend a bit more on the outer edges and around the nose.

The brush has great smooth bristles (synthetic) that really work to blend foundation streak free, and the sponge is firm but is still pliable and soft enough to apply makeup to smaller and larger areas of the face, as well as buff and blend makeup.

It’s also great to use with cream blushes. Saves space and saves time too, so it’s a big winner for me. – RLB

Rory Beca loves Blush Dresses and Tops This Season

Rory Beca is loving blush this season and has a few dresses available in the pretty neutral. A great color for layering or wearing alone on warm days.

First up is the Rory Beca Lel Wrap Dress for $208 from Shopbop which is pretty in its simplicity and versatility. Imagine this great dress with a big chunky turquoise necklace or large rose quartz teardrop earrings. This dress can be worn under a great Autumn Cashmere library cardigan for a more casual bookish look or for a balmy summer night out where it with a thin gold charm necklace and an arm party.

Next up is the Rory Beca Vandama Dress for $216 in the same shade of pretty pink blush that has a little more ruffle of a ruffle feel. This dress can be worn easily to a daytime wedding and then dressed up with jewelry for the reception. It is a little less sexy, but still very pretty.

For those of you who want to wear this pretty color for work or for a night out and would rather pair the look with a pair of leather pants and open toe ankle boots, there are two great choices that will work for day into night.

First up is the Rory Beca Dol Tie Front Blouse for $135 that is a silk button up with a tie waist detail. Recently Eva Longoria and Charlize Theron were seen wearing ankle length skinny jeans with their button up silk blouses. This is a great look to wear under a jacket for work and then worn alone with jeans after work for drinks or dinner.

If you are looking for something to wear on a date with a pair of white pants this summer or a night out dancing, check out the Rory Beca Yul V Neck Camisole for $164 that has just the right amount of ruffle with spaghetti straps for that camisole look that will keep you cool this summer.

Lavanila Laboratories – Vanilla Passion Fruit

Valentine’s day may be behind us, but with the onslaught of warm weather and generally heightened “out-and-about”-ness encompassing NYC, a little spritz of aphrodisiac might just be the extra “umph” reminding cupid to keep on shooting.

Lavanila’s Vanilla Passion Fruit incorporates scents of Madagascar vanilla, passion fruit, guava, peach, and sandalwood, uniquely combined for an allegedly seductive effect. These vanilla tones can be somewhat overwhelming, so buyers beware that this product is not for the heavy-handed (or whatever the perfume-spraying equivalent would be for a lead foot). That said, as with edible forms of vanilla, this perfume may too be enjoyed in moderation. As for the remaining fruit basket of ingredients, I can’t say their presence is immediately detectible. If you’re looking for something fruity, this is not for you. Are you looking for a somewhat sophisticated slightly-too-sweet vanilla? Look no further. Dish out $58 for the perfume, or smaller sums for like-scented products, such as the roller ball ($19), showe and shave ($14), and body butter ($20), all of which can be found at or

Furthermore, Lavanila’s ingredients are touted as “healthy,” offering hydrating and soothing qualities for the skin. This factor is quite difficult to measure, feel, or test, so I’ll trust the lab on these claims. Why not? After all, it’s not so often that New Yorkers are offered the opportunity to achieve health through mere perfume-application, or, offer some direction for cupid’s arrow. Might as well offer it olifactorily.
