hello lovely {votre vu}

31 January 2013

studio melissa james

It seems this time of year is always
when I run out of skincare and makeup
products and go crazy seeking new
formulations to keep my skin
looking healthy and as flawless
as possible.

I'm pushin' 50, and still I have so much
fun with makeup!!!
This has been a tad bit more important in recent
years since I occasionally model when an old lady
with lines and really white teeth is required.

So here is a new to me beauty line
from Paris that I am so glad I agreed
to review for Votre Vu.

A direct sales company, Votre Vu
launched in 2008, bringing French research
and development to the American

studio melissa james

I was especially interested in trying
Votre Vu as I have
sensitive skin and am always on the
prowl for non-irritating products
to look smoother and natural like the
youthful model (sighhhhh) above,
as opposed to...I dunno...
tired and plastered.

So here are 3 of my Votre Vu ooh lala favs:

Crazy about Votre Vu's Bebe Duette
moisturizing lip blam and hand creme.
The design is genius with a mirror, lip balm on top, and hand creme
on bottom. One joyous tube of glory to throw in your bag or
keep on your desk like I do.

If you want an instant beachy aromatic sexy
moment with coconutty vanilla loveliness,
this is for you...I'll be sticking with this
luxe product for sure.

Also lovin my Vu-on-Rouge which is color
for lips and cheeks and feels like buttah
and sooooo nourishing to the skin.
I wear Bouquet Rose, and two products
for under 30 bucks is excellent value.

This is the Le Joli Crayon eyeliner  in Aubergine
is DIVINE and delivers great results...the
product glides on tres effortlessly, and I
realized I had become accustomed to tugging and
fighting with some of my pencils which
is sooooo not necessary.
Hello, smooth and lovely products...
hello, lovely Votre Vu!

Have any experience with Votre Vu
or secret new beauty tips to share?
Lined ladies who wanna look
flawless wanna hear em!

  12. PUSHIN 50 = 47. i have been saying pushin 50 since i turned 45. makes me look better. :)

  13. First off, pushing 50? Somebody lied about your age but as a 51 year old I find myself more into products than ever. Actually, I kind of liked turning 50 (in Paris!) because suddenly people said I looked good for my age-rather than tired as a late blooming 40 year old. I think you will LOVE it. ;) Great tips Lovely!
    xx, Heather
