Product Review: LashEM Measurable Difference Lash Gel

Product Review: LashEM Measurable Difference Lash Gel

Kim Kardashian is my lash idol and you never see her on the red carpet without amazing eyelashes. I've been lusting her lashes and searching high and low for a way to achieve her lash look without applying false lashes.

What I’m Loving Now: Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil

What I’m Loving Now: Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil

I had oily skin all my life, until this thing called menopause started to wreak havoc not only with my moods (sorry kids) but my skin as well. No longer oily, but lacking in lipids, my extremist behavior has gone to the the opposite extreme of lavishing cream on my skin like mad. Recently I […]

Product Review: Too Faced Natural Eye Kit

It takes some doing for me to be impressed by eye shadow. Every so often there will a new color that blows my socks off, or a new formula that is amazing.  But finding amazing eyeshadow in a completely utilitarian kit is a win-win.  I am most definitely a fan of palettes, I believe you […]

Do you have a hard time creating a smokey eye? Most people do and I suppose that's why there are a million smokey eye makeup kits, video how-to's and tutorials on Youtube.  As a makeup artist, creating a smokey eye is second nature to me, but even I love shortcuts.  And I found a great […]

Budget Beauty Tuesday: Let’s Play Roller Ball

I’ve been fascinated with all the new products that are coming out in roller ball form. I remember when I was a teen, eons ago, Bonnie Bell extra gooey, extra sweet roller ball lipgloss.  And then there are the various perfume oils that come in roller ball form.  Now skin care from inexpensive to upscale […]

Don’t Hate Me Because I Have Long Eyelashes: neuLash Product Review

Don’t Hate Me Because I Have Long Eyelashes: neuLash Product Review

I've been abusing my eyelashes since I discovered mascara almost 40 years ago. Of course as a teenager, I bought the cheapest mascara at the drugstore that I could find, completely unaware of the residual wear and tear it would render to my eyelashes. Then there is of course my habit of sleeping my my […]

Budget Beauty Tuesday: Get Even with Black Opal Brightening Mask/Scrub

I looked at my daughter the other day and had a worried thought because her skin was just glowing. Mind you she is a college student — a senior at Cal Berkeley.  So I banished my premature thoughts of being a grandmother (glowing skin, get it) and asked her what she was using on her […]

My Eyelashes are Growing — Look out Brooke Shields

So almost two weeks ago I started using NeuLash — a product that promises lash growth.  And I can’t believe that it’s working.  I haven’t used it every night, per the directions, but I am still having amazing results.  Today my daughter looked at my naked lashes and said, “Mom, your lashes are so long!”  […]
