Don’t you love lips that say “Look at me!”? This this spring demands that you paint your pout in none other than the brightest and prettiest colors in beautyland.  Leona Lewis does bright red right and Rihanna rocks a pair of pink lips like no one else.  And she does a fine job with orange […]

Product Review: Relastin Eye Silk

I am absolutely obsessed with eye creams. At any given moment throughout the day, you can probably spot me dabbing something around my eyes, and most recently that has been Relastin Eye Silk.

Best Green Beauty Bling for Body

I am actually old enough to remember the first Earth Day 40 years ago. I lived in an area sumptuous with trees and vegetation, so I really didn’t understand the import of living an earth-friendly life.  Now, I make efforts to live a greener life.  And that includes using beauty products that are sustainable as […]

Win Perricone MD High Potency Eye Lift

I’m almost 53 and I don’t have a line around my eyes. And I’m sure that’s in part due to genetics, and also in part due to the fact that I am an eye cream fanatic.  I have used a gazillion eye creams, gels, lotions, masks — low and high end— and there are a […]

Budget Beauty Tuesday: Go Green with Eco Tools

As a makeup artist, I have invested in high quality brushes over the years.

Budget Beauty Tuesday: Wet ‘n’ Wild Brow Kit vs Smashbox Brow Tech

I’m an eyebrow fanatic. You know the saying — every great masterpiece must have a beautiful frame.  Well, so it goes with your eyebrows.  Unless you have absolutely perfect eyebrows via genetic gifting, you can probably use a little brow assistance. Trends come and go with brows — thick, thin — but you never go […]

I’m a Winner! Thank You Iman!

I think I can count on one hand stuff I have won via contests. I can’t even remember what it was now that I wrack my mind.  But I woke up this morning and per usual, the first thing I did was check my email on my smart phone.  There was an email that said […]
