Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes Demo
December 11, 2014

Who doesn’t wear mascara? Especially during the holidays when we’ve got to get all glamed up. I know that I’ve spent a pretty penny buying mascara in the past and had my fair share of gratis from my cosmetic counter days. At the time Lancome was selling their Definicils Mascara every 30 seconds. This was years ago so I don’t know what’s changed but I do know that they became a pioneer for mascara. More of my favorites are Lancome, Dior, and and Chanel. There’s nothing like beautiful lashes. So what makes this one so special? Well I will tell you that 15,000 Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes mascaras are sold every day. That’s a lot of mascara!!! And what is a Younique Independent Presenter? …

Trish McEvoy Sexy 9 Blackberry & Vanilla Musk
November 24, 2014

I can't say I feel sexy too often anymore...but I can tell you that when I get in the car to go somewhere and I end my makeup ritual (yes I park the car and do my makeup because there's no way it's getting done with a toddler and a almost walking eight month old), I spritz myself with Trish McEvoy's Sexy 9 and I feel sexy.  With the windows closed and the cold air blasting (after two kids, I am ALWAYS hot). I breathe in and all is right with the world.  It just takes me to a happy place where I feel young (at 43) and carefree.  It takes me back to my Jim Morrison days (although he died when I was four …

Dior 5-Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette
November 18, 2014

When I worked for Dior I was blown away by the makeup line.  The eye shadows are just beautiful. If I was Paris Hilton, I'd say #thatshot.  But my favorite palette is Montaigne.  One day I pulled a customer new to Dior and sat her in my makeup chair.  She told me right away that she didn't like to look like she had make up on.  She liked a very natural look.  Well, the natural look is the look that I happen to specialize in so I did her makeup with all the confidence in the world and she purchased EVERYTHING.  She spent about $900.  Now that's ALOT of makeup.  She was amazed that she looked so beautiful. She was expecting dramatic (because it was …

Smith's Minted Rose Tube
November 7, 2014

And so my obsession with lip balm continues.  I think this might of been an impulse buy but it's a keeper for as long as my lips are moving!  I went on their website out of curiosity and holy moly there are like 13 different lip balms! I can't take it! The packaging is so cool too.  Over a hundred years old, some of the lip balms come in vintage looking containers.  Dr. Smith had a pharmacy in the Rosebud building in Maryland.  He was married to a woman named Minnie and they had eight children.  That's ALOT of  balm!  There is so much more to the story so if your interested...

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer
November 7, 2014

Here's a little trivia.  Did you know that the founders of Smashbox are related to Max Factor?  Yup! Dean and Davis Factor are his grandsons.  They also owned a modeling agency and photo studio. When I worked at "the store that takes back everything," Nordstrom, I was introduced to this primer.  It is ah-mazing.  It's smooth and silky and absorbs oil, also filling in large pores and wrinkles, allowing your foundation to last longer and look smoother.  You can also find it at Sephora. Retails for $36 Click here for a looksy

Kiehls Creme de Corps Light Weight Body Lotion
November 3, 2014

I love all the Kiehls Body Creams/lotions.  But in the summer I need something lightweight because it's so humid here in Florida.  I like that it doesn't really have a scent and comes with a pump.  When I get out of the shower I don't completely dry my skin so it absorbs the lotion better, a trick I learned during my Beauty Adviser days. I also suggest it for people going through chemotherapy.   It's healing,  lightweight and doesn't bother the senses. . Retails for $25 Click here for a loosky

L'occitane Lavender Hand Creme
October 20, 2014

Not a night goes by that I don't use this hand cream.  I cannot go to sleep without it.  My hands are so dry from constantly washing them. Mix a little OCD and throw children in the mix and your be washing your hands all day!  It's so soothing I have to admit that I sometimes rub the cream up my arms (they also carry body lotion).  It"s enriched with shea butter and lavender essential oil from Haute-Provence.  Sidenote: this is where my husband is from.  The lavender sends me to sleep feeling relaxed.  I always have the 2.6 oz on the bed side table and a 1oz in my diaper bag. 2.6 oz - $22.00 1 oz- $12.00 click here for a looksy

Dior Addict Lip Glow
October 10, 2014

This post contains affiliate links, which means that if you click on something and purchase it, I will receive commission. When you were born your lips were bright red and healthy looking.  Take a look at them now.  Do they look the same? If you think I'm lying, get out a baby picture.  I rest my case.  As you age, you lose the color in your lips.  Except for an occasional client that had too much color (the opposite) and wanted a "red lipstick" that was the perfect shade for THEIR lips, I always had customers that wanted that natural glow back.  A lip liner and lipstick CANNOT give you that look, trust me.  Dior Addict Lip Glow can.  Without a doubt.  It's amazing.  It's …

Laura Mercier Eyelash Curler
October 7, 2014

I was working at Saks Fifth Ave when the Shu Uemura Eyelash curler was the big thing.  Naturally I had one because we sold it so much.  I would of never of given another makeup line a chance at their eyelash curlers.  It was built into us that it was the Ferrari of eyelash curlers.   It wasn't until I started working at Nordstroms that I decided to try the Laura Mercier eyelash curler because I worked next to them and sold them.  Laura Mercier clients are very loyal.  Right away I was hooked.  I didn't even start curling my lashes until my late thirties.  I was afraid I would rip my lashes out.  So the Shu Uemura one came out for special occasions.  But …

Diorshow Brow Styler
October 7, 2014

People are always asking me who does my brows.  My secret is Diorshow Brow Styler.  It's one color that works for everyone.  It adjusts to your skin pigment.  I don't know how.  I sold it to blondes, redheads and applied it on all different skin tones.  Don't ask me how it works.  But it was an easy sell as it is so precise with a brush on the end that blended color into the brows effortlessly.

Clinique Chubby Sticks
October 7, 2014

When I worked for Clinique, we came out with these balms called Chubby Sticks. At the time there were other brands that had a similar concept. I wasn't sure they would appeal to the Clinique customer. But they took off like never before. They are also an easy add on to get your Bonus heheheh. Who doesn't like lip balm? And with a tint? The difference with these are that they are extremely moisturizing with shea butter and mango. I rarely wear makeup at forty three, I could easily get scolded for that. The simple reason is I don't have time. But I always keep my favorite color, Chunky Cherry Chubby Stick in my diaper bag so I can at least get my balm fix …

The Two "Must Have" Makeup Products That Give Your Face Life.
October 1, 2014

  Do you ever feel like you look like the walking dead?  You wake up with last nights eyeliner running down your face even though you washed your face and removed your makeup.  Ugh.  I KNOW that feeling.  Fortunately, I worked for many high end Beauty lines such as Giorgio Armani, Christian Dior, Lancome, Chanel and Clinique and sold many makeup products.  They ALL were amazing lines to work for.  But if I was stranded on an island with nothing but two makeup products to choose from these would be them. If you want to look alive but don't have much on hand or time to "put your face on" as my mum would put it, these are the two best products I have come across.  LSF …
