Chanel Perfect Brows or Benefit Brows A-Go-Go: Which Kit is More High-Brow?

Most makeup artists insist brows are the most important element of the face – they can compliment (or detract from) your other features and your overall bone structure more so than anything else. True, they frame your face, so maybe we should pay them some well-deserved attention. While many of us can get by with […]

Beauty is Life Tweezers: A Life-Changer

I am about to end the longest relationship I’ve ever had in my life. I have been fully committed to my Shu Uemura tweezers for 20 years. They were the best, bar none, so I had no reason to play the field. But along came Beauty is Life aluminum tweezers and I realized I’d had […]

Frugal Snob: essence Winter Collection

There’s frugal and then there’s FRUGAL and essence is frugal with everything from “f” to “l” in bold capital letters! I’m talking cheaper than Revlon, Rimmel London, L’Oreal, and pretty much every other drug store buy you can think of. How does that translate when it comes to quality? Don’t expect smoother than smooth eye […]

Smashbox Brow Tech

If there is one trouble spot I have with beauty, it’s eyebrows. I’m not sure why this is, because I have decent brows. They have good shape to them and aren’t too thin or thick, yet I never think they have the strong look that I want when I study my own photos closely (I […]

Dianna Agron: Autumn Nudes

Do not let the cooler months keep you from sun kissed and gorgeous looking skin! I’m obsessed with Glee and though I’m not a fan of Quinn (I mean Dianna) on the show, I have to admit she’s one freakishly gorgeous girl. Does she not look like a Anime character with those huge eyes, perfect […]

Shobha’s New Brow Pencil

Shobha is known for expert brow threading and waxing, so it makes sense that they would add an eye brow pencil ($16) to their line-up of products. I was sent a sample of the above pencil and it was good timing because I recently had my hair highlighted, but didn’t have time to get my […]

Tweezerman Lighted Slant Tweezer

For those like my mother who can’t see very well, but refuse to wear contacts or glasses Tweezerman’s Lighted Slant Tweezer ($22) are a life-saver! Tweezerman’s tweezers are the only ones I use. They’re easy to manipulate, long-longest, and very sharp. While these lighted tweezers are a bit bulkier and not as easy to manipulate as […]

Bobbi Brown Makeup Face Lift Collection

It seems all of my bffs are doing something to themselves. Smart lipos, boob jobs, injections, tucks and lifts, etc. Even Kelly had the Thermage done last fall and is now contemplating all kinds of other fun stuff.  I have nothing against “help” but just have not braved them myself.  But trust me, when it […]
