Celebrity Skin Care: Love It or Leave It?

Have you noticed the abundance of celebrity skin care lines popping up lately? J. Lo, Millie Bobby Brown, Rihanna, Pharrell Williams, Kim K., Hailey Bieber… The list just keeps going and going!

I’m undecided about celeb skin care for one’s face. I’m more open to body products, though.

I’m also very curious about the body sunscreen from Eleven by Venus Williams (it’s supposed to be excellent).

I’d rather spend $$$ on skin care you’d find at a dermatologist’s office, like Skinceuticals or SkinMedica.

Urban Decay Half Baked Naked Your Way Mini Eyeshadow Palette ($29.00 for 0.12 oz.) includes three matte eyeshadows and three shimmers across a mix of warmer-toned neutrals.
