CC Loves... These Beauty Products!

 Darlings, happy new week! Here are the beauty products CC is loving at the moment:
Bare Republic Mineral SPF 30 Tinted Face Sunscreen Lotion, at This cream-to-powder formulation goes on as a silky, feather-light lotion that gently melts into skin for a sheer, powdery finish, while an infusion of antioxidant-rich raspberry, grape and carrot seed oils help fight free radicals and promote youthful-looking skin year-round. CC's new daily go-to!

PanOxyl Acne Creamy Wash, at, contains 4% Benzoyl Peroxide to help kill acne-causing bacteria and lift dirt from pores. CC finds it gentler than typical acne cleansers, yet strong enough to combat even the peskiest pimples!
Roen Kiss My Shimmer Liquid Lip Balm in Rumor, at

Essie Summit of Style glitter bronze nail polish, at

Benefit Cosmetics Lovetint Lip & Cheek Stain, highly pigmented and can be layered to build intensity, at

CC Loves... These Beauty Products!

Darlings, happy Friday! Here are the beauty products CC is loving on this gorgeous early autumn day!
AlumierMD AluminEye, a rich eye cream that significantly improves the appearance of dark circles, fine lines and puffiness; this and next at CC has been using this cream for just a few days and skin already feels more supple and looks more youthful. Yay!

AlumierMD Matticlear, a lightweight oil-absorbing serum that helps reduce shine and refine skin texture, resulting in a smooth, matte finish. CC's new go-to as both a moisturizer and a pre-makeup primer!
ILNP Nail Polish in Party Bus, a beautiful black rainbow flake holographic shimmer shade, at

Surratt Lid Lacquer in Kira Kira, at

Surratt Torche Lumiere highlighter in Rose Diamante, at

Book Review: Chanel Bio for Kids!

 Darlings, CC is so excited to share this insightful book review by guest editor and fledgling fashionista Paulette, a 7th grader from Canton, CT! 
Paulette was photographed at home by her mom, my dear friend and fellow UConn Law School alum Aimee Hoben, who just published her first novel, The Third Way - read about it here and purchase it here!

Paulette's review:
"I Am Coco – The Life of Coco Chanel is the compelling story of Coco Chanel with captivating illustrations and all you need to know about the life of one of the world’s most iconic fashion designers. Isabel Pin made this book feel less like a non-fiction book and more like the inspiring story of a young woman willing to do anything to achieve her dream."

I Am Coco: The Life of Coco Chanel by Isabel Pin (release date: Sept. 13, Hardcover $17.95, Ages 6-9, 88 pages). 

Follow the French-and-German author and illustrator on Instagram @isabelpinworksbooks and pre-order copies of this beautiful bio for the budding fashionistas in your life here
Many thanks to Paulette for her thoughtful and eloquent review and to her mom, Aimee, for the pretty pics!
