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

There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian.

kardashian+sisters Kardashian Sisters Launch Self Tanning Gel at Sephora“My sisters and I are all about getting the perfect tan without harming our skin,” said Kim Kardashian. “We’re always on the lookout for the best self-tanner so we thought we’d create the perfect formula and share it with everyone.”

Kardashian Glamour Tan is an easily applied, clear, moisturizing self-tanning gel. Designed to produce the appearance of a golden sun-kissed tan within 24 hours of application, the non-streaking, non-staining formula is packed with protective antioxidants, and vitamins C, E & D to keep skin healthy and moisturized. Glamour Tan is the only self-tanner available containing Imudulin, a key ingredient responsible for stimulating vitamin D synthesis which can aid in lessening the look of lines and wrinkles.

Application Tips: For optimal results, Glamour Tan should be applied to clean skin and left to dry for 20 minutes before dressing. A natural-looking tan will develop over the next few hours, achieving full results within 24 hours. Reapply to the face and body every two to three days or as needed. Wash hands after each use.

makeup+in+car Makeup Mondays With Mario: Fab in Five

Hi Mario,

I don’t have a lot of time in the morning to put on makeup, but I hate leaving the house bare-faced. Can you give me some quick tips or products I can use to look fab in five minutes?

PS – You’re awesome!

Lily

Lily,

To look fab in five minutes is very possible! You need concealer, bronzer, mascara and a lip product. Start with dabbing concealer under your eyes or wherever it’s needed to even out your skin. You can also apply a tinted moisturizer; they are usually very sheer, allowing for quick application and blending. I love Lancome SPF tinted moisturizer. Using a big brush, sweep bronzer around the frame of your face and a bit on cheeks to warm you up. Try Guerlain’s Terra Cotta Tan Booster. It’s a great rich color that goes on sheer and doesn’t have much shimmer in it. Take a small brush and sweep some on your eyelids too. Mascara on the top and bottom lashes will finish the eyes and – then throw on some lipstick or gloss to finish. You should be looking fab in no time.

Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays with Mario!

xo,
Mario

L’Oreal Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base Is Great For Greasy Gals

Posted on by daneen in Fabuless Pick of the Week, Holy Grail, Oily Skin, Primer | Leave a comment
Loreal+Studio+Secrets+Primer LOreal Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base Is Great For Greasy GalsAnd the award for Best New Primer for Greasy Gals goes to L’Oreal Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base. I received a sample last month, and it was love at first swipe.

Don’t be fooled by its putty-like texture. It applies like a dream, leaving skin so satiny soft that you’ll wonder exactly how you lived your life before this product came into existence. The primer easily disguises pores and wrinkles, and imparts a matte finish. So if the summer heat and humidity turns your mug into an oil slick, you’d be a brainy beauty to invest in a jar of this pink magic.

L’Oreal Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base is intended to be worn in tandem with your favorite tinted moisturizer or foundation. But if you’re having a low-maintenance kind of day, just apply a little to bare skin and it gives you a you-but-better look.

The formula is 100% oil- and fragrance-free, non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic – so even the most sensitive skins should tolerate this product.

Just proof, once again, that it doesn’t take a million bucks to look like, well, a million bucks. L’Oreal Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base is this Recessionista’s Fabuless Pick of the Week.
