Must Haves for Your Beauty Emergency Car Kit!

It never fails, I always find myself needing something beauty-related when I’m in the car going somewhere, so over the last year, I’ve put together a small kit that I keep with me in the front seat, so I’m never without ... anything. Here are 6 of my must-haves in the car. 


1. Nail Clippers, Nail File - REVLON Deluxe Nail Clippers ($2.49 @ – these clippers have been my favorite brand for years. The cutters are always sharp and it never falls apart. Of course things don’t last forever, so glad these are inexpensive. And for a nail file … I have my favorite that I keep in the house, so for the car, I just use the cardboard ones like these Beauty 360 Emery Boards from CVS ($1.99/10 pack @

2. Tweezers – there’s always a stray brow hair that needs-a-pluckin’ and I’m in a serious relationship with ones from TWEEZERMAN. They’re strong, always there for me and I’m really attracted to their Pink Perfection Mini Slant Tweezers. $14 @

3. Nail Polish RemoverL.A. COLORS Nail Polish Remover ($1.59/32 pads @ these handy removers come in 6 different fruity scents and the grape-scented ones I have are actually able to mask the strong scent of the acetone.

4. Floss – I keep floss picks everywhere! In my purse, my car, my desk, hidden in a box on my coffee table. I’m not married to any particular brand but these Complete Clean Floss Ultra Strong Shred Proof Floss in Fresh Mint ($4.29/125 flossers @ by DENTEK work well.

5. Face Wipes - wipes are soooo handy to have in the car and they’re great for so many other things! After using one, I find myself using it afterward to clean parts of my car interior when I’m stuck in traffic. In my car now is BURT’S BEES Facial Cleansing Towelettes with White Tea Extract ($2.99/30 wipes @

6. Clear Nail Polish – great for touching up a run in a stocking, a loose thread on a shirt button and I don’t have a favorite brand. I just use whichever one I’m using on my nails that’s starting to run out. One I like is MAYBELLINE NEW YORK Show Nail Lacquer in Clear ($4.29 @


Now when it comes to makeup, yes, a makeup palette will do but remember, we are talking about a very small stash of items for an e-m-e-r-g-e-n-c-y. I found a really cool 2 ½” x 1” x 3” tall kit that houses 4 swippers of eye shadow, a small eye liner, lip liner, mascara and lipgloss. White the products are not your Lancome kind of quality, it will get you by and I so feel like this kit was made just for this story!

It’s called the Majic Kit and is put out by MAJIC BEAUTY. Choose from Golden Peach and Healthy Nude for $19.99 @

What Do You Use to Clean Up Your Brows?

What brand of tweezers do you use? Do you care? When you come across a pair that doesn’t work, then you’ll care, believe me! I’ve used tweezers all across the board – ones that are pointed, slanted, work once and then never again, work really well. Well the fine folks at PERFECT BEAUTY TWEEZERS take the business of tweezers very seriously and there’s a lot of thought that goes into the craft of theirs.


Each pair is made from 100% stainless steel in Italy, the end is a perfect 45 degrees to align with the angle of the brow and they calibrate each pair for tension to give you the easiest and most pain-free experience. And like another popular tweezer brand, they have a lifetime guarantee on each pair and will do free sharpenings. But have you or anyone you know ever sent their tweezers in to be resharpened? I’m sure there are that do but I’ve never met one before.


So do they consistently work? Yes, so far, yes, and I’ve been regularly using them for the past 3+ weeks. Even on the smallest brow hair, they didn’t let me down!

And the most important part? You can match a pair to each room!! There’s the Orchid Collection, the Flower Collection (shown here in the He Loves Me design) and more.

Prices range from $21.90 to $24.95 for the Twinkle Collection, which has 4 crystals on the handle. Cute!

Seasonal Product Update

This sunscreen feature got me thinking - with the upcoming warm temps, you need to make sure you have up-to-date versions to look your best. I mean, technology is moving right along and every year we see improvements on standard products. Here are some we take them for granted and are oft overlooked so give your medicine cabinet a scan today and see what could use updating!


TWEEZERMAN Animal Print Slant Tweezers ($25 @ – a good sharp pair of tweezers go a long way and surpass all seasons! And these come with a free sharpening and lifetime guarantee.


SKINTIMATE Moisturizing Cream Shave ($3.99 @ – this non-lathering formula contains exfoliating pearls, olive butter, soy and antioxidant white tea. I thought the pearls might get caught in the blazes of the razor but they don’t!


LADY SPEED STICK Stainguard in Daringly Fresh ($3.49/2.3oz @ – hate those yellow stains on white t-shirts? This one contains stain defense technology and prevents white marks on clothes.


COLGATE ProClinical Daily Renewal Toothpaste ($4.99/4oz @ – they just came out with this ProClinical collection. Choose from Daily Whitening, Daily Cleansing and Daily Renewal. Each uses the latest in dental technology.

Tweezerman - Taking Care of Hair, One at a Time

Tweezerman-tweezers My brows used to be a no-tweeze zone imparted by my brow stylist but in the last two months, that has changed for a two reasons - $ and my girl moved. So as much as I can’t take the pain, I have been tweezing. The ones I had were old and did not grip well enough so I was in the market for some new ones and of course turned to the Godfathers, TWEEZERMAN. Fancy some of the new styles below!


Floral Print Slant Tweezers ($25)

Polka Dot Mini Slant Tweezers ($15)

Animal Print Slant Tweezers ($25)


I would recommend their Polka Dot Swarovski Crystal Slant Tweezers because I LOVE their crystals but not for something like this that needs to sit snug in my hand.

And if you are like me and hate the ouch of plucking, applythis afterward. All @
