Aveda Damage Remedy This daily hair repair is a lightweight leave in treatment that helps repair damaged hair, reduce breakage AND its a heat protectant too. I like that it’s lightweight and just a little amount goes a long way. Easy to use too…just work a small amount in towel dried hair & comb it through.

Olaplex Bonding Oil I have heard rave reviews about Olaplex shampoo and conditioner and I haven’t tried them yet…but this oil is wonderful!!! It good for all hair types (I have fine hair and it doesn’t weigh down my hair at all) and it helps protect color treated hair, fight frizz and provides heat protection.. I like that this can be used on damp and dry hair. I love to use it after I style my hair to smooth out any frizz and it helps smooth the end of my hair.

Clinique Pop LipColor I have worn Clinique lipstick off and on since I was in high school and I admit it’s been awhile since I have, but every time I put this color on I’m reminded how good their lipsticks are! The are never drying on my lips and they have a huge selection on colors and finishes…anyway this color (Beige Pop) is a great nude with a very slight pink undertone. I fill in my lips with neutral lipliner (right now I’m loving Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk liner) and then I apply the lipstick and it looks great!

Essie Nail Polish in Seeking Stars If your looking for a great dark bronze color with the slightest hint of shimmer this is the color for you! It screams fall and makes me want to put on a sweater and booties…but that’ll have to wait for now since today’s high is 90!!!

 

Okay, there you have it a few of my favorites for the week. We have a busy weekend of sports, but I’m hoping I get a chance to get in the kitchen and whip up one of my families favorite desserts…apple cake! What are your plans for the weekend? Whatever they are I hope you have a great weekend.

 

Until next time-

Beth

Beauty Finds at Macy’s

I don’t know about you, but I love a good deal!  Free gifts with purchase and extra perks seems to always push me from “I don’t really need anything” to checking the shipping status on a daily basis to see if my stuff has shipped!  (Please tell me I’m not the only person that does this!!!)  Anyway, while on Macy’s website I came across some really good beauty deals I wanted to share with you!

First up Peter Thomas Roth.  With any $50 Peter Thomas Roth purchase you can receive a free 1.7 oz. Pumpkin Enzyme Mask.

Free Pumpkin Enzyme Mask with any $50.00 PTR purchase ($42 value)

Might I suggest trying the Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift and Firm Hydra-Gel Eye Patches.  I’ve never tried these, but I’ve heard really good things about them.  Another item I suggest is Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud.  I have combination skin and this charcoal based mask works so well with my skin.  It helps to pull out impurities in the skin and minimizing my pores.  My skin feels so soft and hydrating when I’m done.

Next up is Clinique.  They are having a Purchase with Purchase (with any $29.50 purchase you can get their “Best of Clinique” set for $49.50 (a $197 value).  This “Best of” set includes 7 items and a pretty traincase.

“Best of Clinique” set $49.50 w/ any $29.50 purchase ($197 value)

One of my top favorites from Clinique that I recommend is their  All About Eyes.  I love this eye cream!  It’s not too heavy and wears well under my makeup.  Another favorite of mine is their Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate.  This Moisture Surge Concentrate has been a HUGE help with my skin during the colder weather.  Since the temperature’s have been dropping I’ve been using this and it keeps my skin hydrated and flake free, but doesn’t make me feel oily.   I’m also a huge fan of their Pop lip colors  This Pop Party set has 6 colors that would make a perfect holiday gift and includes everything from pinks to nude shades.

Lastly, Bobbi Brown is offering a complimentary Luxe Lip Color (in the shade Neutral Rose) with any $50.00 Bobbi Brown purchase.

Free Luxe Lip Color with any $50.00 Bobbi Brown purchase.  ($37 value)

There are so really good gift sets out right now with Bobbi Brown!  This Satin & Caviar Eye Shadow & Eyeliner Party Ready Palette is just great.  It comes with 3 eye shadows and their iconic gel liner (which is awesome btw!) AND a double-sided brush.  The other set that caught my attention was the 5 Piece Instant Pretty Party Ready Set.  This set comes with almost everything you need to get ready and I have to say I LOVE the blush duo and again gel eye liner too!

Pink Lipsticks

I admit I have way more lipsticks then I’ll ever use, but that doesn’t stop me from buying more.  I have purchased a few lipsticks this month and I wanted to share a few that I really like.

IMG_4466
Clinique Sweet Pop

This lipstick is a great formula that glides on smoothly and doesn’t dry out my lips. It has a nice satin finish.

IMG_1433
Bobbi Brown Art Stick-Dusty Pink

This lip crayon is one of my favorites! It’s so easy to glide on and wears for a long time on my lips without drying them out. This lipcolor has a nice matte finish.  I look forward to buying more of these!

IMG_4141
High Shimmer Lip Gloss-Pastel

This gloss is great for those days when I have to run out of the door, but still want a hint of color.  This gloss looks great over both of the lip colors I’ve mentioned above too!

Lastly, before I put ANY lip color on my lips I always put this on

fullsizeoutput_175
Aquaphor Lip Repair

This is my favorite lip product ever!  It helps prevent my lips from getting dry and chapped (even during the winter) and is fragrance and paraben free.  I have these everywhere…one in my purse, my bathroom, my bedside table, my car…seriously they are everywhere!

So there are a few pink toned lip colors I have recently bought and have been really happy with.  I’m always looking for new colors so let me know what you like.

Have a great day!

August Favorites

Good bye sweet August!  It was a fun month full of lots of things I’ve really been loving and here are my top favorites…

Living Proof Restore Shampoo and Living Proof Restore Conditioner  I have color treated hair that I use a blow dryer and flat iron on multiple times a week and my hair has felt so much healthier since I started using this.

Clinique Superprimer  This primer is the perfect amount of slip for my combination skin.  It dries quickly and helps blur my pores too.

Escada Fiesta Carioca  This perfume is a fruity floral that screams summer to me.

GK Leave in Spray  I use this spray after I shower on towel dried hair.  It helps with tangles and frizz and it smells good too!

Stella and Dot Gita Tassel Earrings  I sell Stella & Dot so I have a lot of earrings, but these tassel earrings have been on repeat this month.  They go with so much and are just a fun earring to wear.

So there you have it, my top favorites of the month.  Let me know if you have any questions.

Have a great day!
