Get 'em before they're gone for good

Stila is selling their discontinued product at up to 50% off online now.  Check it out at Stila Cosmetics.

I love their

Lip Glazes


and Smudge Pots.

They are also offering free shipping on orders over $50.  Hurry and get em before they're gone.

Five For Free... has a special going on now through the end of February that gives you 5 full sized lipsticks when you spend $35 or more on their website with the code FEBBDAY

Four of my favorite things from Lancome are  

the Effacernes Waterproof Protective Undereye Concealer.  This has to be one of the best concealers on the market today.

Their Definicils High Definition Mascara

Their Dual Finish Fragrance Free Versatile Powder Makeup

And their Juicy Tubes Ultra Shiny Lipgloss.  A nice pop of color and not horribly sticky like most ultra shiny glosses.  Now it should be fairly easy to spend that $35 to get the five full sized lipsticks.  Enjoy!

great deal....

One of my favorite things to do when I am actually home, is to go the the Brooklyn Flea.  About 3 years ago I discovered an amazing jewelry designer there and have been collecting his pieces ever since.  Most of my pieces that I have from him are vintage chandelier crystals that Martin has reworked to become works of art that I hang around my neck.   But he has other amazing one of a kind pieces that he has made from Italian, French, Icelandic coins that I might just have to start collecting as well.   Not to mention many other lovely things I seem to need.

For Valentine's Day this year, he is offering 20% off everything in his etsy shop through Monday February 14th.  His prices are great, as is the quality.   Also, the customer service he gives can't be beat.

So I recommend taking advantage of this deal and collecting some of his work for yourself.  Or if you are thinking of buying me a gift, Martin's esty shop is a great place to start.  ;)

Amazing Drug...

store find.  ;)

I am a sucker for red lipsticks.  I love wearing red lipstick myself.  I love it on others.  I also seem to feel the need to buy every red lipstick made for my kit.

I rarely use drugstore lipsticks for one main reason.  I can't test the color and staying power on my hand. (Please when you are testing lipsticks, never actually apply the lipstick to your mouth.  You have no idea who has tried it before and what illnesses, infections they have.  You could end up with some serious nastiness going on in your mouth or worse  EEK.)

But I found a display of Cover Girl Lip Perfection Lipsticks at Ulta.  The sleek packaging and color teasing me at the bottom of the tube was something I just couldn't resist for $6.59.

On a recent shoot, the styling director had requested red lips for a shot, so I brought out the Cover Girl and applied it to one of my favorite models.  To my surprise, it glided on smoothly, was extremely pigmented and looked beautiful on.  I worked with the same model, Sarah Ruba, the next day and she said she had a hard time getting the red off.  So I know it has some serious staying power.

I think I might just have to stock up on some more of these Cover Girl lipsticks.  Since it is a good idea to throw out lipsticks after a year, maybe two, I have even more of an excuse to go shopping.  :)
