New Hair Care Line Alert! Cabella

Cabella-Leave-In-Hair-Conditioner-&-ProtectantI was reading one of the major beauty magazines recently and they brought up an interesting thought – using a leave-in hair conditioner is akin to using a makeup primer in the hair. Hmmmm, never thought of it but it makes sense. I guess part of the reason this info stood out is that I’ve been religiously using one from a new line of hair care called CABELLA. The packaging is vintage inspired and the products contain their own B-Reparative Complex, which is made up of three Certified Essential Oils (Certified Bilberry Seed Oil, Certified Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil and Certified Black Currant Seed Oil) to help maintain the hair’s healthy makeup.

I’ve been using the Leave-In Hair Conditioner & Protectant ($25/5oz @ and feel like the  products I use afterward really do seem to perform better. It contains the above complex and other hair nurturing ingredients like Panthenol, among others, and also important, of course, the scent! It’s a pleasant combo of citrus and sandalwood but very subtle.

Off the top of my head I don’t know many organic let alone anti-aging hair care lines. I have a feeling this line could set a trend.

CHANEL Natural Finish Loose Powder in Ferrie 47 is part of the Holiday 2011 Makeup Collection and a really beautiful light and soft shimmering pink. So what’s the problem?

Review+Swatches - Julep Nail Vernis

There’s no hotter beauty item these days then nail polish. It’s for sure a major accessory with quite a few blogs just devoted to its diversity. One line I was just made aware of is called JULEP and I’m sure they will be around for a while. What started as a nail parlor with four locations in the Seattle area has turned an ordinary mani/pedi into a whole chic experience.As for us that don’t live in the Northwest will have to let the Nail Vernis or Nail Polish line do the talking.

Review+Swatches - Laura Mercier Kohl Eye Pencil Set

I’m a little late getting to LAURA MERCIER’s limited edition Kohl Eye Pencil Set ($45 @ as they came out as part of their holiday collection but they are worth the wait. While I think the colors look kind of hard and dry in person, they couldn’t be smooth or easier going on. Kohl liners are known to be both, which makes them great for smudging but you still have to investigate.

Gift Pick - PREVAGE Day Anti-Aging Gift Set

Holiday-2011-Product-PickI had a conversation over the weekend at a holiday party about beauty gifts (go figure!) and they thought that giving skin care was a strange gift to give someone. And they compared it to giving a set color of foundation. While I thought that was a tad too far, I can see where she was coming from but there are so many great deals out there, how can I resist? One I don’t think you can go wrong with is any of the PREVAGE items from ELIZABETH ARDEN. There are a few gift sets that are a total bargain, like the PREVAGE Day Anti-Aging Gift Set ($120 ($210 value!) @

Elizabeth-Arden-PREVAGE-Day-Anti-Aging-Gift-SetGift Set  includes:

PREVAGE Day Ultra Protection Anti-aging Moisturizer SPF 30, (1.7oz)
PREVAGE Body Total Transforming Anti-aging Moisturizer, (2.4oz)
PREVAGE Eye Ultra Protection Anti-aging Moisturizer SPF 15, (.17oz)
