Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name


A few weeks ago, I paid a visit to my local Bath & Body Works store. I was on the hunt for a tropical-smelling body wash that wouldn't break the bank, and B&BW seemed like a good place to search. When I entered the store, I was greeted my a really nice saleswoman who asked me what I was CONTINUE READING

Laura Mercier Master Class: Makeup Bag Must-Haves in Your 30s


Every month, my girlfriends from college and I get together for dinner in the Philadelphia area. We started this tradition about two years ago, and - of course - we have a great time catching up and reminiscing!  Most of them are product-obsessed (like me), and most have been through some sort of make-up introductory when we became "of age" to wear it.  Now CONTINUE READING

Dermadoctor Physical Chemistry


One of my all-time favorite products is Dermadoctor KP Duty, a dual action body exfoliator that combines the benefits of a chemical peel and microdermabrasion. It was developed to treat chicken skin - those little red bumps that many people get on their upper arms. But, for years, I've been using it to exfoliate my legs pre-shave.  There's really no body exfoliator CONTINUE READING

Even If You’re Broke, You Can Afford This Fab Beauty Find

Posted on by daneen in Lip Balm, Lips | Leave a comment

NYC+Lips+Slider+in+Sugar+Kiss Even If Youre Broke, You Can Afford This Fab Beauty FindYou’re broke. You’re dying to pamper yourself – but every day, your purse strings get a tad bit tighter. You want to look like a million bucks, but that’s almost how much you owe the credit card companies. And let’s not even talk about your student loans…good grief!

Fret not. You’ve come to the right place. I’ve got a product that you’re going to love – not only because it’s totally worth the money, but because it hardly costs any money at all! I’m talking about Lip Sliders Tinted Lip Balm by N.Y.C.

Available in six shades, this emollient balm delivers a sheer pop of color with an intense gloss finish (somewhat wet-looking, which is totally hot IMO). The hydrating and conditioning formula contains rich botanical oils and vitamins, which soften and repair. Plus, the subtly sweet flavor and fragrance is a yummy treat.

The best part is you can pucker up with N.Y.C. for only $2.99. After trying it, I couldn’t believe it either. I would gladly pay twice as much for this balm, thought I appreciate that the folks at N.Y.C. are thinking about my financial well-being. Lip Sliders Tinted Lip Balm would be a great item for The Price Is Right. It’s such a wonderful product that no one would guess that it costs less than $3.

NYC+Lip+Sliders Even If Youre Broke, You Can Afford This Fab Beauty Find

As a brown girl, I’m partial to the brighter shades – particularly Sugar Baby, a sheer red.

N.Y.C. Lip Sliders Tinted Lip Balm is sold at drugstores and mass market retailers nationwide.

MAC paired six playful Lipstick shades with six sparkling Lipglass glosses, two Tinted Lip Conditioners that will have your kisser covered, and two bright and punchy eye quads that can be accented with reflective eye Glitter and Glitter Eye Liners, all of which are perfectly framed by the thickest, most decadent Plush Lash Mascara. Beauty Powder Blush in shades of pink and peach will give the MAC Hello Kitty woman a demure, rosy flush and nails are decorated in fabulous shades of pepto-pink, modern grey and creamy white Nail Lacquer.
