Meilily Product Pick: Best Facial Mist – Kerstin Florian Rehydrating Neroli Water!

Forever on the hunt for amazingly refreshing facial mist products, I thought I had found my favorite (Sue Devitt Microquatic Luminous Finishing Mist).  That was before I came across a small unassuming bottle of aromatic hydrating goodness, Kerstin Florian’s Rehydrating Neroli Water, during a special getaway to Big Sur’s Ventana Inn & Spa.

Though I hadn’t heard of Kerstin Florian products before, once I tried of spritz of the Rehydrating Neroli Water, I was instantly smitten.  I had found The One – the Best Facial Mist Ever!

Meilily Photos & Swatches: Sally Hansen Nail Polish Strips in Love Letter

Nail polish is the new lipstick, and if you haven’t been under a rock in the last year you know that creative nail polish art has gone mainstream. Nail product giant Sally Hansen has kept up with the nail art trend and has updated their fun-and-easy nail polish strips line, Salon Effects, to include more patterns like this handwritten love letter polish.

Reminiscent of the cool DIY newsprint nail polish look, these handwritten polish strips combine a DIY modern feel with a hint of old-school paper and ink, but without all the extra steps, paper cuts or consumption.

Sweetheart Necklace by Erica Weiner: Choose Your Lyrics

Sunday, July 15th, 2012 | Jewelry, Photos, Product Picks, Style Picks | Comments Off

Meilily: Erica Weiner Sweetheart Brass Necklace & Box
Meilily Product Pick: Erica Weiner Brass Sweetheart Necklace with Lyrics or Custom Text!

Erica Weiner is still one of my favorite indie jewelry makers.  From the ingenuity and whimsy of her best-selling handcuff lariat necklace, and now to the vintage sweetness of her letterpress lyrics heart necklaces, there’s something extra special about Erica Weiner’s pieces.

Earlier this year, during a sale, I picked up a couple Sweetheart Necklaces by Erica Weiner with custom stamped text on both sides.  The one inch brass heart is like a larger and flatter sweetheart candy heart on a 16″ chain, and with custom, slightly imperfect, letterpress lettering it looks rather striking and feels one-of-a-kind.

I chose to customize the necklaces with lyrics › Continue reading

Priti NYC Non-Toxic Nail Polish in Sweet Sultan: Photos & Swatches

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011 | Nail Polish, Product Picks, Swatches | 2 Comments

Meilily: Priti Nail Polish Sweet Sultan
Meilily Product Pick, Photos & Swatches: Priti NYC Nail Polish in Sweet Sultan!

Given how much I “heart” Priti Soy Nail Polish Remover, I’m rather surprised that is has taken me this long to try Priti Nail Polish, a non-toxic, 3 Free nail polish developed to be safe for children and expectant moms.

As part of my very first Priti Nail Polish haul, I picked up an intriguing neutral shade called Sweet Sultan, described as a “matted gray rose” on the Priti website. Sweet Sultan by Priti NYC has since become one of my favorite nail polish shades ever, a really great work-to-play neutral polish. It’s even up there with my favorite Paul & Joe Beaute Nail Enamel in 05 Teacup.

Tons More Photos & Swatches of Priti Nail Polish in Sweet Sultan…

Benefit b.Right! Radiant Skincare: Facial Polish & Foaming Cleanser

Monday, April 11th, 2011 | Photos, Product Launches, Product Picks, Skincare, Swatches | 1 Comment

Meilily: Benefit b.Right Skincare Cleansers
Meilily Product Pick: New b.Right! Radiant Skincare by Benefit – Cleansers

Started out a doubter, but now I’m a lover…

When I received a few products from the new Benefit Cosmetics b.Right! skincare line in my mailbox, I didn’t actually expect to be that impressed, since makeup, in my opinion, has always been Benefit’s strongest suit.

Well, I was wrong to doubt Benefit’s ability to bring it with b.Right! I am absolutely loving the two Benefit b.Right! cleansers that I’ve tried, the Refined Finish Facial Polish and the Foamingly Clean Facial Wash. They make me feel more girly and more… clean.

The thing I love the most about the new Benefit b.Right! Radiant Skincare line is the fragrance: a fresh, pretty, and well-groomed bright floral that has just enough sparkle to make it interesting and modern. I want to say the scent is “perky,” › Continue reading

Meilily Product Photos: L’Occitane Limited Edition Peony Makeup Collection!

Exciting news! L’Occitane’s limited edition makeup collection is here! In select L’Occitane stores only, this rare garden-inspired Peony Makeup Collection is a must-see.

While wandering through a L’Occitane shop, I was drawn to a display of what appeared to be colorful flower seed packets. Imagine my surprise when I realized that L’Occitane, best known as a bath and skincare brand, has a new makeup collection out, and a pretty one at that. Each limited edition makeup shade is named after a particular peony.

Meilily’s top picks from the L’Occitane Peony Makeup Collection:
- Liquid Shine Lip Colour in 01 Marie Riviere (a flattering medium-pigmented gloss inspired by a “delicate salmon-pink peony,” according to L’Occitane)
- Facecolour Powder in 02 Valse de Vienne (a pretty “glossy pale pink” blush/eyeshadow)
- Lipstick in 03 Mme Louis Henry (a very sheer warm-pink shimmer lipstick inspired by “a pink peony with old-gold patina reflections”)

Check out these photos of items from the L’Occitane Peony Makeup Collection› Continue reading
