Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...and those of us holding the mascara wand.

After two decades of covering the beauty industry, I've come to learn what makes it so alluring. Finding the perfect shade of makeup to match your skin tone, adding a swipe of eyeliner to give your tired eyes a lift, discovering an innovative new product line, or indulging in a totally luxurious spa treatment. My experiences have been documented in magazines, newspapers and websites worldwide. I've tested newly formulated products in the lab, explored hair removal options, shopped for lipstick, added shine to my hair and succumbed to massage marathons--all in the name of beauty. I've written press releases, hosted makeover events and co-authored a Do-It-Yourself Beauty book (Alloy). On this blog, I write about products and services that I come across every day as well as those that have been provided by publicists or the companies that make them. Either way, I write what I think. I hope to share some of my insights--and bring you the latest, greatest beauty news right here. Join me in the quest to find all things pretty.

recessionista beauty: bon voyage

Going somewhere? Put this on your packing list--the Bon Voyage Anti-Aging Travel Set from Lierac Paris ($28). Dry cabin air on an airplane, free radicals and pollutants can all wreak havoc on your skin. These travel essentials--in airplane-approved size bottles--are designed to combat slackening and restore the resilience of younger looking skin. What's in the collection? Eau de Soin Demaquillante Cleansing Water for Face and Eyes to eliminate impurities while protecting sensitive skin. The non-rinse formula (pretty convenient if you're on a plane, right?) has lily and chamomile extracts plus softening and anti-inflammatory properties, and is designed to clean and smooth skin. Other treats: Coherence 21-Day Intense Lift Serum, a featherweight serum that provides intensive action against skin slackening, Coherence Day Cream with highly firming, moisturizing, protecting and energizing benefits, and Coherence Night Cream with relaxing and repairing skin enhancing benefits (makes skin feel firmer, smoother and look well-rested). The best part: You don't have to be taking a vacation to try it. Just go to and place your order.
