I am still discovering wonderful BCA sets this month, and my recent obsession is the Hydropeptide Perfecting Gloss BCA Perfectly Pink Gloss Set ($55, a $76 value). Not only is the set a discounted price, but for every set sold $5 is donated to Look Good Feel Better, an organization that helps the quality of life and self-esteem for those undergoing cancer treatment.
I first saw the Hydropeptide line at a makeup and skin care trade show in Chicago a few years ago. I remember my friend Jen was raving about the line and she purchased several items. I can’t remember now why I didn’t buy anything from them, but I know I have regretted that decision ever since, so I was excited to try this set they sent us.
Perfecting Glosses have some terrific ingredients that makes lips full and ultra-moisturized. There are four different kinds of peptides that plump up lips and do lots of reparative work with continuous use. More plumping happens thanks to chili pepper and niacin, which sort of warms lips but doesn’t give the major, sort of uncomfortable tingle of other lip plumpers. Hyaluronic acid moisturizes and improves elasticity so fine lines and wrinkles are less noticeable. They are also extremely moisturizing thanks to the Meadowfoam estolide.
The Perfectly Pink Lip Gloss Set includes two Perfecting Glosses – one in Beach Blush and one in Nude Pearl. Both have very little tint.
Beach Blush has a very slight pink tint, and Nude Pearl is more of a clear shimmer. Both feel absolutely awesome on my lips. I am not sure if they truly makes my lips look bigger from the plumping or if it’s just from the shine, but they are so nice I don’t even care, I keep wearing them!
October is a great month for wonderful limited edition sets and values, and the Hydopeptide Perfecting Gloss Perfectly Pink Gloss Set is a great one to try. Anything that brings attention to breast cancer treatment, support, or research has my attention. If you haven’t had your yearly mammogram yet – please schedule it now. It could just save your life. – Lisa
