Hi everyone! I'm a former MUA who loves makeup and skincare, especially teaching clients how to be their own makeup artist. I love being a wife to my husband who is my equal, a mom to 3 gorgeous, talented and brilliant daughters, and a grandma of 2 sweetie pies, with a 3rd on the way. I'm livin' the dream by the ocean and summer is coming! 🌞
I'm a Bite Beauty convert! I recently got into "clean" beauty products and I was SO happy to discover that Bite Beauty, makers of my favorite lip products, is CLEAN!!! This lip creamer goes on smooth and lasts a long time for a "gloss"....it's really more like a liquid lipstick. It's highly pigmented, and contains resveratrol, which is derived from grapes, is full of antioxidants and so it's good for you. My only complaint? Make more colors!!!!
I tried this a while ago because Stila was one of the first brands to come out with Liquid Lipsticks. I thought I'd start with "Rubino" because, who doesn't want a red that stays on all day? It does stay on, that's for sure! Even if you eat a salad with oily dressing, you're still going to be left with a stain of color. It doesn't bleed, and it doesn't feel drying on your lips. My problem is that I felt like the color was SO strong that my lips entered the room before I did!!! I'm not an intense red person, but if you are, you'll love this!
I want this tinted lip balm in every single shade that W3ll People makes! It goes on smoothly and gives my lips a natural wash of color (I have it in Cherry, which is a good "Starter Red" for those of you that are nervous about wearing a bright color), while imparting moisture. I'd buy it again!
I never, in a million years, thought that a natural beauty company could create a non-toxic mascara that would be high-quality. But I was wrong! I purchased the Purple shade on the recommendation of a talented MUA in order to bring out the green in my hazel eyes. It doesn't flake, smear, or clump...and it truly lengthens my lashes.
This is my "Holy Grail" lip balm! I ordered it online based on the product's outstanding reviews, without ever trying it. The jar has a nice heft to it, making it feel quite luxurious. I got the Cinnamon flavor, which I absolutely love the scent of. It soothes my lips and keeps them from getting chapped. I've reordered 3 times so far. This has a permanent spot on my nightstand!
Review for: Tom Ford Beauty Lip Color, Collin, 0.07 oz. more...
This is like a little tube of glossy black happiness, with a warm nude pink bullet of joy inside! This is a beautiful everyday color. Yes, it's pricey at $32 for a small, tiny purse size tube. But it's worth it! The Tom Ford "Lips and Boys" collection is named for men that Tom Ford, the fashion designer and film director, finds inspirational or significant in his life. Filled with good-for-you oils and butters, the shade "Collin" goes on like butter. It feels soft and cushiony on and doesn't dry out, but stays on well. I might not be able to afford a Tom Ford dress, but I can buy a lipstick!
I can never go back to a manual toothbrush after using the Philips Sonicare Gum Health Electric Toothbrush. It gets and KEEPS my teeth feeling clean...like they do after a professional cleaning at the dentist! And it keeps my gums healthy, which is the most important thing of all. The price is right on this one. It's rechargeable, which means I'm not replacing costly batteries and it looks sleek on my bathroom counter. Buy it!
Ray-Ban Wayfarers...are there any sunglasses more iconic in the world? And with good reason! They're classic, stylish, chic, quality, and well-priced. I've had a pair of classic Wayfarers, which run a bit larger, but also the new Wayfarer, which is a little lighter weight and more fashion-forward. You'll have then forever!
While I love the idea of a beauty box, in reality, the content is often lacking. I am not a fan of the fact that I can't choose my own shades in makeup, nail polish, yes, but I find there are often items I just don't use...and that makes it a waste of my money. Julep does make excellent nail polish, however!
