Lipgloss Break

Giveaway Break - Urban Decay Pocket Rocket


Oh man...this is a great gloss, but what makes it better is the packaging. I love a gloss that catches people's attention while I'm applying. When you move the top of Urban Decay's Pocket Rocket, the cap the hottie that's on the cap undresses...to only his baby blue briefs of course :)

I love this gloss in Kirk, which is a light brown in the bottle but goes on nude with a high gloss. Kirk, the man that lives in the cap, looks like Vince from Entourage...

Each shade varies in opacity and finish, but all have a sweet crème brûlée flavor. The formula contains Hyaluronic Spheres, known to improve cellular function, prevent dehydration, and fill in lines and wrinkles.

Giveaway Break - YBF Quench Lip Treatment


I just realized that I have a YBF Quench Lip Treatment in every area of my life. One at my desk, in my purse, in my laptop bag, in my car, in my beach bag and in the kitchen...it's never more than 10 steps away from me. I love this stuff. It's a deep moisturizing lip balm that glides on smooth and softens lips. I hate it when balms are 'hard' and go on pasty. Quench is soft and goes on really well under lipstick or gloss.

It protects and refreshes with Vitamin E, Vitamin C and free radical fighting antioxidants.

***Giveaway***

All you have to do is follow me on Twitter! I will randomly pick a Twitter follower to win YBF Quench Lip Treatment (and some other goodies :) on Monday, August 24th.

Makeup Break - NARS Foundation


In both art and beauty, a superior canvas is key. And only the most refined foundations are capable of transforming skin into that ideal canvas. François Nars, pioneer of modern makeup, reinvents advanced formulas that conceal imperfections and even out skin tone for an ultimate immaculate complexion. Introducing Sheer Matte and Sheer Glow: the next generation of sheer foundations infused with exceptional radiance.


NARS SHEER MATTE FOUNDATION - $42


While transparent enough to allow skin’s natural hue to remain visible, it is still matte at heart, which means weightless, luster-free coverage. This velvety oil-free formula boosts brightness and radiance, improving skins texture. Packaged in a stylish frosted bottle, it distinguishes itself from its Sheer Glow counterpart.



NARS SHEER GLOW FOUNDATION - $42


An ideal solution for those looking for a foundation that is more dewy than Sheer Matte. The formula glides on easily and imparts a satin-soft, glowing finish. Skin will even-out and gleam with overall brightness; radiance and sleek texture will be restored.



Available in 20 shades, Sheer Matte and Sheer Glow, will be available at Nordstrom beginning August 1st and on www.narscosmetics.com beginning September 1st.
