Get Glowing Skin this Spring with Per-fekt Beauty

This weekend in NYC I was in disbelief as I peered out the window and saw snowflakes softly falling from the sky. The good news is, the weather was too warm for it to stick. Do you know what that means? Spring is coming! And soon after, summer, summer, summertime (cue Will Smith from his Fresh Prince days). Anyway, what better way to prepare for the advent of skin-bearing clothing than to make sure your body is glowing from head to toe with a hot new beauty kit from per-fekt beauty.


Rihanna’s makeup artist, Mylah Morales, has used some of per-fekt beauty’s products to create the singer’s sexy glow, and now you too will have everything you need to look like a superstar with the newly launched Ready, Set, Glow Kit. The products, according to Morales, “are unique in that they act as a modern multi-use alternative to traditional foundations and powder bronzers and blushes, creating a healthy and youthful look to boost your natural skin color.”

The kit (a $100 value) includes per-fekt’s body perfection gel in matte tan ($45), cheek perfection gel in bronzed ($28) and lip perfection gel in sunset ($24). Get it now for $45 by using the code “GLOWKIT” at checkout (P.S. If you sign up for their newsletter you can save 25%).


The Sweet Smell of Celebrities

Natalie Portman’s was chosen as the new face for THE Parfums Christian Dior line. In her first advertisement for the line’s flirty perfume, Miss Dior Chérie, Portman, 29, appears topless wearing a simple black headband. Her makeup is simple, as she looks out at viewers in a flirtatious stare.

Unlike Portman, singer Rihanna is not just the face of a new perfume ad, but she is following the trend of other pop starlets such as Britney Spears, Katy Perry and Mariah Carey, by launching her very own signature fragrance called Reb’l Fleur, which is said to invoke sweet fruity and floral scents of her native country, Barbados. The fragrance will be available in department stores in February with prices ranging from $49-$59 for the fragrance and $30 for the lotion.

Are you more likely to buy fragrances when celebrities simply appear in the ad campaigns, or is it important that they create their own signature scent?
