I'm seeing Cupid, heart, and flower cut-outs almost everywhere. Without a doubt, Valentine's day is here and I'm sure a lot of girls are scouring beauty shelves now, looking for products that will make them look their very best on this very special day.

I'll help shorten your search with this packed Beauty Bulletin featuring some of my favorite beauty, skin care, and fragrance brands. I'm revealing five new products that will surely make you look nice, smell nice, and feel nice from head to foot so you'll turn his head around once more. :)

Estēe Lauder presents the new Perfectionist Youth- Infusing Makeup, an age- defying foundation that is infused with the Perfectionist Serum. It boosts skin radiance, awakens skin by giving it a bright glow, conceals lines and imperfections with its medium to full coverage, and nourishes skin with its oil- free, hydrating formula.

Perfectionist Youth- Infusing Makeup also has SPF 25, Broad Spectrum to shield skin from the sun. It comes in a whopping 21 shades that cater to Caucasian and Asian skin tones. It retails at P2,800.00.

But wait, there's more. Estēe Lauder also unveils a new skin care line called Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening, a potent yet gentle skin lightening/brightening range that follows the skin's Circadian Rhythm.

This is where Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening can help you out: It claims to work with the body's Circadian Rhythm, providing day to night, smart protection from and treatment for discoloration and light loss of the skin-the result is fair, healthy, spotless, and luminous skin. Let's call this strategic skin lightening.
