Vegan Make-up: Lip Nirvana

I am sitting here wondering where the warm weather went. At the time of writing this blog post it is pretty cold out and I feel I became a bit spoiled by the unseasonable weather we had the end of February. I took some time thinking about what I wanted to write next-now that the caring skin care series is over. I knew I would start delving into our makeup but it’s hard to pick one.

I have always loved makeup. I think it appeals to the creative side of me and I love the idea of creating a look or a mood with the products I choose. Over the past several months I have found that of all the products I use, lipstick seems to have the biggest impact. When you think about it, being a foul mood right after applying lipstick is a pretty tough accomplishment. There is just something about putting it on looking in the mirror and feeling like, “oh yeah I got this.”

Even if “got this” means going downstairs to listen to the theme song of Peppa Pig for the next 20 minutes.

I like to think that it’s a throw back to the days of the strong and powerful Amazon or other tribal women that we channel when we apply color to our faces. It’s has if we are gearing up for our day-making it our own before we even leave the house.

I first tried our Lip Nirvana at dinner for my 39th birthday. We went to a favorite restaurant and ordered drinks, appetizers a meal and dessert. I felt that it was a pretty tough test on our first day together but Lip Nirvana did not disappoint and I still had color for the end of the even photos we took during story time.

Lip Nirvana has a matte finish and I wasn’t sure I would like it being a fan of the glossy look. And while, yes I love the glossy look-I really don’t love wearing it all the time. I want the look of lip color but I don’t want the feel of lip color and the matte colors were perfect for this. You can see the complete line of colors by checking out my web store or message me directly and I can get you a catalog. Be sure to comment below and let me know your favorite color.


Have a beautiful day,

Caring Skin Care: Series Wrap-Up

It is unseasonably warm as I write this and I am dealing with a little of an inner struggle. It seems that I should take advantage of the weather and go for a hike and yet I am really wanting to hunker down in my creative corner and make some junk journals. Since it is getting to be close to little man’s nap time perhaps the hike will happen tomorrow.

Caring Skincare Series: Relief

Today, well I could use some relief. I am in full-blown overload, craving solitude and perhaps a sunny location where someone with a wonderful accent serves me drinks with little umbrellas while I curl up under an umbrella reading Nora Roberts.

Well, Beauty Society doesn’t have that type of relief product (well unless you count the incentive trips that I am really wishing I paid more attention to…) but they can offer your skin some relief if you are feeling a bit off or perhaps sleep deprived.

This probably my favorite astringent. Gentle, yet effective exfoliating astringent will instantly remove congestion from pores, dry up any blemishes and remove impurities from excess oil without drying out your skin. Don’t worry about irritation because we’ve added green tea and coneflower extracts to soothe, calm and reduce any visible inflammation or redness normally associated with AHAs. Astringent doesn’t have to be a dirty word…. so let Stripper give you an ultra-clean show. – Natural AHA from citrus, apple and sugar cane are combined with a time released, skin conditioning BHA to smooth rough, flaky skin commonly seen with acne – Softens clogged pores and dissolves dead cells with minimal extraction effort – Aids in healing and prevents scarring – So gentle, that it will calm redness and irritation from blemishes. It’s also a great alternative aftershave for men.

This is a product I haven’t tried myself but here if you struggle with breakouts keep reading. Banish the breakouts forever with this one hit wonder. Revitalize your skin with this double AHA/BHA serum that will clear up your skin for a lifetime. With 10% glycolic and 2% salicylic acid, this serum will resurface the skin to leave you with a fresh new face, and go deep down to kill bacteria and fight off future breakouts with salicylic acid. Betaglucans to rebuild the skin and green tea, and licorice extract will help calm and soothe skin of any irritation and inflammation. 90% success with 100% guarantee! All this and NO BENZOYL PEROXIDE.

Due to the stickiness of this product, caused by the BHA, you may use only at night or follow with Fake ID . For those with sensitive skin or rosacea-prone skin, blending with Drama Free may be helpful until a tolerance is built up. Best if used in the evening , not only will skin be acne and blemish free; it will be diminish scarring.

Well it’s not a sunny vacation island but hey, it’s a way to feel relaxed, rejuvenated and work in some self-care for yourself.

I will be back next week…maybe writing pool-side….

Have a beautiful day!

Caring Skin Care Series: Face Masks

Welcome to another week of our caring skincare series. Now, personally, I love face masks! There is just something so decadent about sitting, hair pulled back in a headband, feet up, reading a book for 5-10 minutes while your face mask does all sorts of lovies to your face.

I used Baby Calm Down mask for the first time today and I have to say I loved it. I am use to the more traditional clay-type masks but this was cool, moisturizing and left my skin feeling soft and amazing.

Perfect for all skin types, Baby Calm Down will hydrate, heal and brighten your skin with pro-Vitamin B5, soothing plant oils and a potent, yet gentle, licorice extract. Baby Calm Down instantly wakes up even the dreariest complexions, while easing surface redness and blotchiness including skin irritation, inflammation and puffy eyes.

Another mask that is on my wish list for my next Elite Customer order is Let’s Face It.
This is a masque that really unclogs those pores, but doesn’t leave your skin feeling like an alligator! Sulphur and witch hazel remove excess oil and other impurities, drying up blemishes literally within minutes, while a soothing and pore-purifying mineral complex, zinc oxide, balances the skin out. Let’s Face It can also be used as a spot treatment on blemishes if you don’t have time for a full pampering session.

Now, let’s talk anti-aging or more specifically Magic Anti Aging Mask-Gold.  Get ready to reveal bright, smooth and amazing skin that you have not seen in years! This amino acid and vitamin C weekly treatment will turn back time on your complexion. You will see immediate results with the first application, use weekly as directed for cumulative results that are astounding.

And because anti-aging ins’t a one-size fits all we have Magic Anti Aging Mask-Blue. This weekly peel off mask is menthol based to open and soothe pores and releases the power of salicylic acid, resveratrol and beta sitosterol to combat your problematic skin issues. Fun and easy to use, and you will be forever grateful for the magical disappearance of those annoying and unsightly breakouts!

I must admit this is one I cannot wait to try! I have always loved peel off masks so I will be sure to post an update and let you know how I like this one.

Have a beautiful day!

Caring Skincare Series: Step #5 Protect

So we have reached the final step in our caring skincare series! Throughout the five steps I have been sharing with you the products I use as well as details on the alternatives. Now to be honest I have not tried this product myself yet as I haven’t needed it and to be honest I don’t use sunscreen much at all. I prefer to just monitor my sun exposure, moving to shaded areas as needed. I am more of a walk in the woods type and generally avoid the beach at all costs. However I know many of you love your poolside lounging so here you go!

Making Shade

This ultra-sheer, water resistant sunscreen formula is just what you need for a day at the beach or just hanging outdoors. Made with octinoxate, the most popular UVB sunscreen in the world, and micronized zinc oxide; the gentlest UVA protective sunscreen available. Making Shade is also great for kids because it won’t sting their eyes! A greaseless lotion, perfect for wearing alone or under makeup, Making Shade is also enriched with cell-protecting Vitamin E, Vitamin C and soothing green tea and aloe to keep your complexion calm and moist all day, while lessening the damage brought on by direct sunlight. – Making Shade is a ‘physical’ or ‘BROAD SPECTRUM’ sunscreen, it sits on top of the skin and”blocks” the UV rays; whereas a ‘chemical’ sunscreen absorbs into the skin and allows the skin to absorb UV rays. – Making Shade contains zinc and is a great choice for those with oily/acne prone skin – Children love our sunscreen because it doesn’t sting or irritate their eyes – Very little is needed because it is so concentrated – Sunscreen should be applied 20 minutes before heading into direct sunlight.

Next week I am going to share some of other skincare items that you may wish to add to your regimen.

Have a beautiful day!
