Bold Lips Using Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Lipstick



Vibrant lipstick can be a little intimidating and you may think that it doesn’t suit you but I believe there is a great rich color that will suit any gal! With 12-hour staying power there’s no excuses for not trying a bold new look!

Here’s a gorgeous red lip color called Stay Scarlett from Estee Lauder’s Double Wear  Stay -In-Place line.

Murad Renewing Eye Cream



murad

The skin around your eyes is the most fragile skin on the body because it doesn’t have its own oil supply. If not given special attention, fine lines can develop and eventually lead to crow’s feet. Murad’s scientifically proven eye care products are developed specifically for this delicate area around your eyes.


When I used this product, the first thing I noticed is that it wasn’t heavy or greasy, yet it was silky with the consistency of a lotion rather than a cream.  The second thing that I noticed was that my eyes didn’t burn, like with most products. I don’t know what it is, but even with organic eye creams, my eyes tend to burn like they’re on fire. Lastly, my makeup went on very nicely over this product. It didn’t ball up and get funky like other eye creams.


All in all, I give Murad’s Renewing Eye Cream an A!  So far so good but I’ll have to wait a few more weeks to see if my fine lines smooth out. I’ll keep you guys posted!


What it does:

Triple benefit eye cream treats and prevents under-eye damage with Eye Brightening Complex to reduce dark circles and illuminate the eye area. Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4 reduces medium-to-deep crow’s feet and diminishes puffiness for a brighter appearance.


Additional features and ingredients:

Wild Yam and Soybean dramatically increases moisture, elasticity and firmness

Natural emollients boost moisture

Bespoke Labs Featherweight Dryer



bespoke

The bane of my existence since I was a little girl, was blow drying my hair. It’s long, thick and takes FOREVER to dry, like 45 minutes and I get a sore arm to boot. Now, I throw it up in a bun and let it dry itself 12 hours later.

Thankfully, technology has come along way since I was a little girl and we have better tools for our hair but I am particularly impressed with Bespoke Labs Featherweight Dryer. My arm doesn’t hurt anymore, my hair is not frizzy AT ALL and the best part? My hair is dry in 10 MINUTES!!!

I absolutely love this blow dryer!

Key Features:

• 1800 watt, weighs only 13 oz.!

• 2 speed settings, 4 heat settings plus cool shot

• Reduces drying time by up to 60%, and reduces static electricity

• The only dryer with a Tourmaline ceramic heater, and internal assembly

• 10 feet professional length cord

Dior Capture Totale UV Protect SPF 35



dior-cap

Since I’m all about sunblock, being a redhead and all, I’m a little fanatical when it comes to finding great ultra light weight, oil free sunblock.

Dior Capture Totale UV Protect  is a God send  and absorbs quickly so you don’t get that greasy feeling you get with most sunblocks, eck! Dior Capture is also  formulated with radiance-boosting aminolumine with an SPF of 35, so it’s great for wearing alone or under makeup!

Jane Iredale’s Dream Tint



ji

What’s in a name? Well,  the name should say it all. Jane Iredale’s Dream Tint is a silky, tinted moisturizer that hydrates skin and calms inflammation while improving skin’s elasticity. Dream Tint also delivers the perfect amount of coverage while minimizing pesky fine lines, so dream no more!

What’s also great about Dream Tint is that it can be used alone, the way I like it, or it can be used as a primer for mineral based makeup. Which ever you prefer, you will be sure to find your perfect match from five available shades from light to dark.

Bare Escentuals-Tutorial Rocker Eye



rock1


One of the most sought after looks, is the sexy, smokey eye. A good percentage of my clients ask me for that all the time.  In fact , one of

my tutorials is named “Rock Star Look,” and has amassed more hits on youtube.com than any of the other tutorials I’ve done.


One of the biggest problems for people is that they don’t have the right tools to work with, this is why I’m in love with Bare Escentuals Tutorial Rocker Eye kit. It comes with everything you need to create a hot, smokin’ eye.


The liner is heavily pigmented black with a tinge of silver shimmer for a three dimensional effect and works in conjunction with 2 stunning loose shadows, one being silvery grey shade and the other a black shimmer.


Another bonus….One of the most important tools in your arsenal of makeup, are great brushes. I don’t care if you have nothing but Chanel and NARS in your beauty bag. Those little spongey applicators are not going to cut it!  That’s why I’m so excited that Bare Escentuals put an amazing brush in this kit. Honestly, that’s where all others fall short. Bad brushes = chalky, unblended makeup. So right there, brownie points!
