Did you Know?

Did you know???

August 27, 2012


Do you love your phone as much as I do??!! I take my phone with me EVERYWHERE, sad to say but hey I do! Oh and I'm sure you do too. But DID YOU KNOW your phone can cause you to have breakouts on your face? Think about it, our phones get really dirty because we lay them just about anywhere. 

David Bank, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor of Dermatology at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center explains that "When we talk on the phone, the warmth and moisture create a perfect breeding ground for bacteria. By constantly being on the phone, you cause acne mechanica. This is caused by not letting the pores breathe and the friction from your phone onto your face. It begins with rough and bumpy skin, and with continued irritation, it develops into inflamed pimples." 

So I suggest you clean your phone with a little rubbing alcohol or Lysol disinfecting wipes at least once a day.

August 22, 2012



Ok Beauties, You know I got to keep yall hip to what's NEW sooooo.... Heralded in the September Issue of NYLON MAGAZINE as the Best Lipstick of 2012, OCC Lip Tar has eclipsed its cult-status and has officially been cemented as a staple in every makeup junkie’s cosmetic arsenal. 

To celebrate, OCC has partnered with NYLON MAGAZINE to introduce an extraordinary new neon pink, Pantone™-matched to the NYLON logo, aptly christened “NYLON”. A stunning new innovation in lip colour, OCC LIP TAR is liquefied lipstick. It combines the longevity of a lipstick with the ease of application of a gloss. Packed with highly emollient naturally-derived ingredients including Hemp Oil, whose Omega-3 EFAs allow LIP TAR to go on slick and moist, but set to a satin matte finish. Just the tiniest drop is needed to provide fullest coverage possible while remaining featherweight light and ultra-longwearing. NYLON LIP TAR is available now exclusively at Sephora.com, and in select Sephora Locations beginning on September 17th!  Honey let me tell you, IM GOING TO GET MINE!! ARE YOU? lol :-)

Quick beauty tip

Quick Beauty Tip

August 15, 2012

Test out foundation shades out on your jawline or the inside of your wrist, not your hands. Because your hands have been exposed to more UV light and a lot less exfoliation, they’re usually darker than your face.

OPI

August 14, 2012

Well, Well, Well!!! There has been a few DIVA's that recently joined the world of beauty so honey  let me tell ya...


First let me tell you all about the biggest Diva of them ALL...
On August 10, 2012 OPI Products Inc. announced a collaboration with multiple Grammy Award winning and multi-platinum selling recording artist Mariah Carey. A five-time Grammy Award winning global superstar with over 200 million records sold worldwide and 18 Billboard No. 1 singles (more than any solo artist in history), Carey will be the inspiration for a line of OPI limited edition nail lacquers that will launch January 2013. 
OPI is thrilled to work with Mariah, an industry icon who loves nails and considers lacquer one of her favorite accessories,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “With her magnetic personality both on and off the stage, Mariah serves as a great inspiration for beautiful, bold colors.”

Moving on to the next Diva, Singer Pink is now joining COVERGIRL  She says, " I grew up with COVERGIRL, who didn't?"

Loving me some Chuck (Lips with Benefits by Lorac)

August 13, 2012

See the thing is, I'm pretty much a Lip Stick type of chick but lately I've been rocking this Lip Gloss  that's soft, creamy and nude. Its called Chuck and its a part of the "Lips with Benefits" collection by Lorac Cosmetics. Honey, let me tell ya this gloss has been getting most of my attention. Poor lipsticks have not been worn in a week lol!

(Here is 2 pics of Meeeee with Chuck on my lips)




I really like all of the lipGloss from Lorac Cosmetics because they are not STICKY, instead they are nice and smooth. The lips with Benefits collection is infused with natural antioxidants to help nourish and protect lips. It is available in Alex, Josh, Nick, Mark, Chuck, Ben, Andy and Chris.
