MSNBC reports that Michelle Obama wore Artistic Colour Gloss Soak Off Color Gel in “Vogue” last night at the Democratic National Convention.
Last night, Michelle Obama nailed her Democratic National Convention speech, but it was her manicure that stole the show. Her nails – painted in a smoky blue (that just so happened to match the hem of her Tracy Reese dress) – nearly broke Twitter.
Okay, I exaggerate…but people were going cray cray trying to guess what brand and shade the F.L.O.T.U.S. was sporting.
Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, Executive VP & Artistic Director for OPI, thinks she might know the answer. CONTINUE READING
As a beauty blogger, sometimes I contact brands to request products I would like to try or products readers have requested that I review. But sometimes, products that I never knew existed – and are a million times better than anything I could’ve asked for – just show up on my doorstep. Today was that kind of day.
I returned from a long day at work to be greeted by a goody box from L’Oreal Paris. Inside was their brand new New York Nudes Collection, a sophisticated limited-edition range that includes six flesh-toned shades of Colour Riche Nail and coordinating Colour Riche Le Gloss. These modern shades – from soft ivory to rich ebony – beautifully complement the unique tonalities of women of all skin tones – creating a flawless nude look.
This morning, I wanted to do something interesting with my makeup for work. My first thought was to wear some fun lipstick, but then I remembered that it was going to be a hot and humid day, and that I would probably melt.
Enter MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Cream in 11 Gold, advertised as an ultra-pigmented, long-lasting waterproof cream.. These pots of color are amazing – great color, easy to apply, and don’t go anywhere until you use makeup remover. I opted for a quick swipe of this color as liner, extended a bit into a cat eye. I also put a little bit underneath my eyes, to mirror the top lid. CONTINUE READING

As a beauty blogger, one of the questions I get asked most is to recommend products for curly hair. But I don’t have curls (well, not anymore…my hair is relaxed, and has been for 25+ years), so I’ve been reluctant to endorse products that I don’t myself use. That is, until now…
Paul Mitchell recently introduced a new hair care range for girls with curls. If your ringlets are going rogue, your waves are wilted or your tendrils have got it twisted (and not in a good way), The Truth About Curls collection is the detangling, frizz-fighting, defining, hydrating and smoothing answer to your prayers.
Spring Loaded Detangling Shampoo: Rich lather gently cleanses curls without roughing up the cuticle. “Prepares curls for a frizz-free finish.” Ultra-moisturizing and sulfate-free.
Full Circle Leave-In Treatment: Lightweight conditioning treatment won’t weigh hair down. Do-it-all formula hydrates, detangles and tames frizz. Replenishes thirsty locks and helps protect against damage.
Twirl Around Crunch-Free Curl Definer: Dual-formula swirls together hydrating cream and smoothing gel. Defines, separates and tames unruly curls and waves without frizz or crunchiness. Helps curls retain their shape and bounce all day long.
Ultimate Wave Beachy Texture Cream Gel: Secret weapon for creating sexy, tousled beach waves. Forms, separates and adds loads of texture. Humidity-resistant for perfectly imperfect frizz-free styles.
Even if you don’t have curly hair, you can benefit from the shampoo and leave-in conditioner. I’ve personally used the products on my dry, chemically-straightened hair and found them to be gentle and very hydrating. And at $6-40 (depending on bottle size), the price point is nice too.
