When I was a young girl, one of my favorite pastimes was sitting in front of my mom’s mirrored closet doors and “playing QVC.” I would pretend to be Kathy Levine, meticulously describing each necklace, bracelet and pair of earrings in my mother’s jewelry box – using terms like Black Hills Gold, Diamonique and lobster claw clasp.
Twenty-some odd years later, I’m still a fan of QVC. My favorite show is Friday Night Beauty with Lisa Robertson – and if I didn’t have such excellent self-control, that program might bankrupt me. When I watch FNB, I always get the urge to call in and share my thoughts on the products I’ve tried. But I get nervous and I never go through with it.
So when QVC recently approached me about being one of their featured bloggers for the All Access Beauty event (it kicks off this Friday, April 13 at 11:00 PM EST and will continue on all day Saturday, April 14), I jumped at the opportunity. As an All Access Beauty Blogger, I’m sharing my top beauty picks on QVC.com. And since I’m local, I’ll be traveling to their West Chester, PA studios on Saturday to go backstage and meet beauty rock stars like Kate Somerville, Mally and Josie Maran.
I’m so excited about QVC’s All Access Beauty and I want you to get excited too! So I’ve partnered with QVC for a get-gorgeous giveaway! One lucky reader will win FOUR of my QVC beauty faves:
It Cosmetics Vitality Cheek Flush Powder Blush Stain & Brush ($35): It Cosmetics Vitality Flush Powder Blush Stain delivers the natural-looking flush of a liquid or gel cheek stain, without the mess. The brush is super soft and applies the product perfectly. But what I love most is that a little goes a long way and lasts all day.
Josie Maran Argan Bear Naked Makeup Remover Wipes ($12): On the nights when I’m too lazy to take off my face, I use Josie Maran Bear Naked Wipes to remove all traces of makeup, daily grime and buildup. Infused with aloe vera, chamomile, cucumber, and vitamin E, the cloths leave skin feeling velvety soft, with no sticky residue. Bear Naked Wipes are bio-degradable and cashmere soft.
Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester 15 ($109.12): After just one week of using Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester 15, people started telling me how amazing my skin was looking. Using it is the easiest thing. You smooth it on at night, which takes all of 10 seconds, and you wake up to a brighter, more luminous complexion. I’m not exaggerating when I say it’s akin to walking around with your own lighting crew.
Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment ($85): ExfoliKate is a clinical-strength exfoliant that decongests stubborn skin and improves a blah complexion. The active fruit enzymes eliminate dead skin cells, diminish bacteria and reveal a healthy, rosy glow. Once or twice a week, apply in an even layer, leave on for 20-30 seconds, wait for the tingly burn (good pain!) and wash off. I noticed dramatically softer and smoother skin after just one treatment!
