If You Have Hair, The Wet Brush is a Must Have


For years, I have used an oversized wide-tooth comb to detangle my notoriously impossible to detangle post-shampoo hair. The amount of hair that would get caught in the teeth was somewhat alarming. But I chalked it up to the fact that I only wash my hair once a week - so maybe the hair loss really wasn't all that CONTINUE READING

Get Naked: Troy Jensen’s Favorite Nude Lip Colors

kim+kardashian+nude+lips Get Naked: Troy Jensens Favorite Nude Lip Colors
It’s no secret that I absolutely adore and envy Kim Kardashian’s makeup. If there was a Face Off type situation, and I had to swap mugs with someone, Kim would be high on my list…primarily because I cannot get enough of the way she wears a nude lip. Aside from Angelina, nobody does it better.

nars+belle+de+jour+and+giza Get Naked: Troy Jensens Favorite Nude Lip ColorsSo Troy Jensen‘s recent post about his favorite nude lip colors was a godsend for a Kim copycat like me. In the photo above, Troy used NARS Belle Du Jour Lipstick topped with NARS Giza Lip Gloss.

“The colors blend beautifully with her creamy golden skin tone,” Troy says. “The art of creating the perfect nude is finding one that works with your skin tone and also the shape of your lips. Fuller lips can get away with the palest nude shades while thinner lips will need a bit more color or lip liner for definition. Whatever shade you choose, be sure to pair it with a beautiful smoky eye.”

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.

Lipstick That Thinks It’s A Gloss: Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss Stick

Posted on by daneen in Lips, Lipstick | Leave a comment

 Lipstick That Thinks Its A Gloss: Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss StickI’m a lipgloss junkie. So what’s the my favorite kind of lipstick? One that wears like a gloss, natch…which is why my lipstick du jour is Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Gloss Stick. The sheer color practically melts onto lips, and the formula is surprisingly hydrating.

Pure Color Gloss Sticks are a perfect product for color-shy gals, because the sheer shades are oh so flattering. But while I’m usually a staunch advocate for a pop of color on the pout, I must admit that I can’t get enough of Pure Color Gloss Stick in Nude Almond; it’s as if Estee Lauder made this shade just for me. Thanks, EL…I can cross “find the perfect nude lipstick for spring” off my to-do list.
