MoxieLash Magnetic Eyeliner for Magnetic Lashes

MoxieLash-Magnetic-Eyeliner-and-Eyelashes
If there’s one thing I like to try, it’s innovative beauty accessories! Enter MOXIELASH. It’s a magnetic eye liner for magnetic lashes. Wow. I purchased the Sassy Bundle for $75 @ moxielash.com and it came with a small angled brush, the liner and one set of lashes.

Each lash has small magnets adhered (I’m guessing glued) to the band, about 5 on each band and the liner is able to attract the lash to stick to it.

Dermaflash 2.0 Luxe

Dermaflash-2.0-face-exfoliator
When I first heard of dermaplaning, I didn’t even know that I had had it done before. My eyebrow girl used to do it to my face once in a while when I had my eyebrows done and only when I tried the DERMAFLASH original back in 2016, did I put the name and the process together.

What It Is: a physical exfoliation procedure using a surgical scalpel to shave the skin’s surface, not only removing the peach fuzz, what’s also called vellus hair, but also the top-most layer of dead skin. It’s become quite common place and it’s a great way to safely remove hair and it makes the skin so soft and makeup look so perfect afterwards!

KAJA Cushy Vibe High-Pigment Lip Stain

stain /stān/ noun 1. a colored patch or dirty mark that is difficult to remove.

Kaja-Cushy-Vibe-High-Pigment-Lip-Stains-mirror

I can’t tell you how any many lip products I’ve come across that call themselves a stain. Keeping in mind the above definition, I consider a true stain is something like this or this.

I feel like this Korean lippie, KAJA Cushy Vibe High-Pigment Lip Stain ($18 @ sephora.com), is what every lip stain out there wants to be but misses the mark, or is as close to a great lip stain as I’ve gotten, which I’ll get into.

Nyx Cosmetics Glitter Goals Liquid Lipstick

Nyx-Cosmetics-Glitter-in--Goals-Cherry-Quartz-Crystal-Crush-Reflector
I could have gussied up these pictures of the NYX COSMETICS, but these new lippies really take center stage all on their own! I When I saw this picture on Instagram, I knew I had to have whatever the lippie was in the picture. Turns out it was NYX COSMETICS ‘Glitter Goals’ Liquid Lipstick ($9 @ nyxcosmetics.com, walgreens.com, ulta.com), shown in the hot pink shade of Reflector. How fun!

Since I currently can’t seem to find where I put these two, I was on the hunt for these new ones and found them at their store at the Westfield Mall Century City.

Exploring Kierin NYC

Spraying-Kierin-NYC-fragrance
When it comes to beauty, there’s almost nothing I love more than trying out a new fragrance. Sometimes it’s an instant hit, but more times than not, it’s a pass. This nose sniffs a lot of samples, from when I visit the mall/Sephora to checking out indy brands when I can. Who wants to smell like everyone else or have everyone know when you're wearing Flowerbomb to death? There's just so many scents out there so make 2019 the year you find a unique one for yourself.

One I came across recently is the eau de parfums by KIERIN NYC. What I like about this brand besides all four scents being genderless is how different each one is from one another. Each is hypoallergenic, vegan, cruelty-free, free of parabens & phthalates, and formaldehydes, among others. The brand also keeps a close eye on sourcing all their ingredients, only choosing to work with suppliers that share their sustainability views. 

And how about the sleek white bottles? The art is on each scent is very gorilla street art and will stand out sitting on your shelf.

As the name states, each is inspired by NYC stories and available in the following:

  • 10 a.m. Flirt – fresh, flirty, magnetic.
  • Sunday Brunch - floral, cheerful, luminous.
  • Nitro Noir – spicy, intoxicating, hypnotic.
  • Santal Sky – woody, intimate, serene.

Holiday Hair Renewal

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Pantene at Walmart, but all opinions are my own. Please see below for additional disclosure.

Pantene-Pro-V-Daily-Moisture-Renewal-Shampoo-and-Conditioner-main
Have you even started your holiday shopping yet? I'm just about done and couldn't be more pleased! This is probably the first time I've ever been able to complete it this early so now I can concentrate on the numerous fun holiday parties coming up.

Around Thanksgiving I trudge through my closet to pull out any holiday clothing items to make sure they're clean and pick out any accessory items I want to consider. I also make sure I'm in full stock of my basics for the month like stockings, shaving cream and makeup primer. Nothing worse than running out of something that's part of your routine as you're getting ready.

When it comes to styling your hair, you want to start your style with clean, hydrated hair by using Pantene Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner. This duo has a potent blend of Pro-V nutrients to clean my hair super gently and give it a boost of hydration. This Pantene duo makes it feel like my hair can handle anything from a hot blow dryer to cold winter air.

Right now, save big on the Pantene Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner Dual Pack at Walmart. Pick both up in stores for a limited time for just $9.88 – a $17 value! I picked these up quickly and easily during my weekly shopping trip so I could get home to start getting ready for the soirees.

I really do love getting dressed up for the holiday parties as I find it quite permissible, in fact, required, that one wear bigger than usual fashion pieces and at least one piece of larger-than-life bling. So this is the time of year I wear the huge cocktail rings and I have this black faux fur wrap that goes with everything. Both are a little over the top, which is thankfully completely ok this time of year.

What's your go-to piece for the seasonal parties? Do share in the comments!

Physicians Formula Brow Last Longwearing Brow Gel

Physicians-Formula-Brow-Last-Longwearing-Brow-Gel-main
I’ve been at a bit of a loss when it comes to keeping my brow hairs in place. I’ve been oscillating between a wax pencil from ASBH and something called Eye Brow Coat from Daiso. I have my father’s brows so crazy hairs that do their own thing sometimes so my brows getting “messy” is a thing.

Let’s file this post under, “I forgot I had this,” shall we? It’s PHYSICIANS FORMULA Brow Last Longwearing Brow Gel ($10.95 @ physiciansformula.com, ulta.com) and it’s a, “longwearing, water-resistant (I think waterproof), transfer-proof, smudge-proof, budge-proof transformer with brown-enhancing ingredients.

Veil Cosmetics Automatte

Veil-Cosmetics-Automatte-Mattifying-Base-&-Touch-Up
Shiny is great when it comes to jewels and cars but no so much for the face. Do you carry a touch up powder in your purse? I do. I think most women who are into makeup do and it’s usually in the form of a pressed powder. Well that is all about to change. Introducing VEIL COSMETICS Automatte Mattifying Base & Touch-Up Makeup ($39 @ veilcosmetics.com).

This is a colorless, powderless, weightless, anti-shine touch up balm will be all you need to tote with you in your purse for touch ups. To me, it’s a touch up powder without the powder combined with blotting paper without the paper! I remember Mally Beauty came out with something like this many years ago and I actually wrote about it back in 2010 here. Do you remember this one? So it’s not a totally new concept but I don’t think that one caught on and I think it should.
