  • mary kay semi matte lipstick pink moonstone certified fabulous cate mcnabb lipstick guava burts bees lip crayonI love, love, love trying new lipstick. I’m particular about my lipstick, but I still try different kinds, always searching for the next best thing. A good price point always helps. So when I had three to try this month, I was quite excited. Each one is very different in its own right, so they make great comparisons.

    Mary-Kay Semi-Matte Lipstick - Pink Moonstone

    I like matte lipsticks, but some tend to be a bit drying. So when I saw this semi-matte in pink rose, I was intrigued. Andddd I love it! It goes on smoothly with consistent & rich color. It is a tad bit creamier than a matte lipstick, but does not appear glossy or shiny (has a slight sheen due the creamy finish). This is one of my new favorites! It’s a nice shade for fall and is the perfect finish for many outfits!

    Cate Mcnabb Lipstick in Guava

    This matte lipstick is also a nice rich, warm tone for fall and a great day shade: wear to work, cocktails and even weekend adventures. With a true matte lipstick, I prefer to exfoliate my lips before. I simply use a little sugar and olive oil and wait a few minutes before applying the lipstick. This leaves a moisturized, even surface so the matte looks smooth and polished

    Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon Sedona Sands

    This lip crayon provides lightweight moisture and creamy matte color for every day. This is a great option to keep in your purse when your lips need a little pick-me-up. The formula is infused with Shea Butter, Kendi Oil, and Jojoba Oil leaving your lips soft and smooth. The Sedona Sands provides just that touch of color for a pretty, light pink.

Mary Kay Clear proof system


If you struggle with acne and or are sick of fighting the occasional blemish, the Mary Kay Clear Proof Acne System is a great one to try. It includes Clear Proof Clarifying Cleansing Gel, Clear Proof Blemish Control Toner, Clear Proof Acne Treatment Gel, and Clear Proof oil free Moisturizer for acne prone skin. These products will help not only help clear up blemishes and unclog pores it will also fade the look of acne spots. For any one that has struggled with spots from acne that is a huge deal. The whole system is really nice. It is strong, they suggest starting off using the wash once a day and working up to using it twice a day which is what I did. They recommend that you use the clarifying cleansing gel, then the blemish control toner, then the acne treatment gel and then the moisturizer.  I like that it isn't too many steps it only takes a short amount of time to do this routine. I am always happy with a product that doesn't take long that works great.  

Orogold body scrub

I have never tried Orogold products before but have thought that the concept is interesting. Sowhen I had the opportunity to try a few of them I was excited. Orogold’s 24k Golden Body Scrub is a unique body scrub that is infused with 24 karat gold as well as unique herbal extracts to help exfoliate the dead and dry skin leaving the body with an extraordinarily soft feel. This scrub removes a lot of dead skin especially if you haven’t exfoliated in a while it is pretty abrasive and gets the job done. To use it you just apply in a circular motion over wet skin and let it work its magic. My skin felt so amazing and soft and has stayed that way for days.

Who better to develop a skincare line than a dermatologist.  They are faced with so many skin issues in any given day, making a dermatologist the perfect advocate for the skin.  Goldfaden M.D. is developed in Dr. Gary Goldfaden’s South Florida Dermatology practice.  Dr. Goldfaden has a passion for developing physician strength, dermatologist developed, non-prescription skin care solutions.  I was extremely impressed not only by the all-natural ingredients, but also by the results I experienced when using the Radical Difference Advanced Antioxidant Serum.  I didn’t even need an appointment J.

Goldfaden M.D. uses only natural and organic plant-based materials in its luxurious skincare.  These products are Mineral- Oil free (a petro chemical, yuck), Alcohol-Free, Silicone Free (another petro chemical), Gluten-Free, 100% Vegetarian and Hypo-Allergenic.  The Radical Difference Antioxidant Serum contains Organic Red Tea Extract, a powerful antioxidant known to help prevent and reverse free radical damage in skin.  Our skin is exposed to such harsh conditions on a daily basis, both from the outside environment (sun, wind, extreme cold and heat), as well as harsh inside environments (dry air due to heating, fluorescent lighting, air conditioning).  Ingredients such as red tea help to protect skin form these harsh environments due the high amounts of antioxidants present. 

Goldfaden Md. Radical DifferenceGoldfaden M.D. Radical Difference Advanced Antioxidant Serum also contains a plethora of fermented ingredients.  The use of fermented ingredients is becoming increasingly popular in skincare because of the many benefits they contain.  When an ingredient reacts with microorganisms and starts to ferment, its molecular structure breaks down and its nutrients become more concentrated. These concentrated nutrients are more easily absorbed by the skin.  Five of the ten ingredients in this serum are fermented, including Lactobasillicus/Acerola Cherry Ferment, Saccharomyces Zinc Ferment, Saccharomyces Magnesium Ferment, Saccharomyces Iron Ferment, and Saccharomyces Silicon Ferment.  All of these ingredients are beneficial to the skin.

My experience with this product is that it was extremely firming.  I loved the way this serum applies easily and absorbs quickly, making it a perfect addition to my skincare regime, and a must-have under my daily moisturizer.  My skin is noticeably firmer, brighter and even textured.  After using this serum for a week, I noticed a definite difference in my skins tone and texture.  I love the antioxidant protection, and use this serum daily as it leaves my skin vibrant, firm and smooth.  I urge you to try Goldfaded M.D Radical Difference Advanced Antioxidant Serum.

 Motherhood is “memorable,” but all too often for its calamities. Fortunately, Mommy Mixology shares stories, sympathies, and some strong drinks to keep you laughing through it all. Sitcom housewives like June Cleaver and Carol Brady made mothering look like constant joy, but most moms know the reality is far from simple. Getting through the motherhood years will take a good sense of humor and a few cocktails!

Mommy MixologyTalk about pre gaming for Mother’s Day, I have my relaxation planning in high gear! With my first Mother’s day being a Mom, I was happy to get this book! Not only is Mommy Mixology by Janel Frongillo good comic relief but it also has great ideas for delicious beverages. Any mom can relate to this book and I’m sure any non mom would enjoy it too. It is a non filtered look at being a mom and the stages our little ones go through.

One of my favorite parts of the book is the Sleeptastic Sangria! Not only am I a big fan of Sangria but I have a son who is about to turn 1 in two weeks who still does not sleep through the night! Ugh.. yeah let’s say I drink a lot of coffee… a lot it seems like truck full’s. The way she describes the situation of lack of sleep is spot on…”I would have totally sold my soul to the highest bidder for a full night of sleep … and I wouldn’t need no fancy 400-thread-count sheets. Recliner, park bench—hell, even a dog bed would do. Move over, Fido—and you’d better not snore.” Some other drinks you can expect to see in see in the book are EmERgentini, Cosmopotty and the NO!jito! Well I don’t want to give all the book away but if you want some great drink ideas along with some blunt upfront funny mom stories I defiantly recommend reading this or gifting this to your mom she will defiantly have a good laugh.

Top 10 Beauty 2013

Summer is finally here, thank goodness.  The temperature here in Maine is finally a nice balmy 96 degrees.  Everyone here has taken to wearing little sundresses every day.  With the weather so sweet, I have become less maintenance in the makeup department however.  No use in putting on layers of color when skin is tan and humidity is high (don’t you just hate when the makeup melts off).  My makeup routine now consists of sometinted SPF and a great lip color.  Thank you Mary Kay for providing me with 2 great lip products to help me stay pretty, without much effort.

MaryKay Nourishine PLus Lip Gloss 7.1.13For day, I prefer a light shimmery lip gloss. The NEW Special Edition Beauty That Counts Mary Kay NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss is the perfect gloss for daytime wear.  It comes in a pretty tube with a gold screw cap.  The product is swirled within the tube, a light, pretty pink swirled with a shimmery gold. The shimmery peachy-pink shade works well on all skin tones.  This lip gloss is full of Vitamin E, which is so nourishing, smoothing protecting and conditioning for your lips.  This formula gives you brilliant shine plus and instant boost of moisture that leaves lips feeling supple.  This is a wonderful lip gloss, and at a price of $14 it really can’t be beat.

MaryKay Creme Lipstick One Woman Can 7.1.13For night, I like to go with a bold lipstick.  However, it must feel great on my lips, apply nicely and most importantly STAY PUT! Mary Kay’s Special Edition Beauty that Counts Crème Lipstick does all three.  The color I used is called “One Woman Can”, and it is a delightful deep raspberry tint with a swirl of shimmery pink throughout.  Some lipsticks dry out the lip, causing a flaky colored mess.  This lipstick applies easily and feels soft on my lips. The color is great, and I received many compliments. Most importantly is the staying power.  Hours later the color is still strong, and my lips still soft.  Who could ask for more in a lipstick?!?

Mary Kay Ash (founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics) was a true pioneer in the independent sales comedic industry.  When Mary Kay Ash “retired” from a successful career in direct sales in early 1963, she decided to write a book to help women survive in the male-dominated business world. She made two lists. One contained things the companies for which she had worked had done right; the other included the things she felt they could have done better. When she reviewed the lists, Mary Kay realized that she had inadvertently created a marketing plan for a dream company – one which would provide women with open ended potential to achieve personal and financial success.  With her life savings of $5,000 and the help of her 20-year-old son Richard Rogers, Mary Kay launched her dream company on Friday, Sept. 13, 1963.  Her                    company, as we all know, is a HUGE success.

mary kay ask founderMary Kay adopted the Golden Rule as her guiding philosophy, determining that the best course of action in virtually any situation could be easily discerned by doing unto others as you would have them do unto you. She also steadfastly believed that life’s priorities should be kept in their proper order, which to her meant putting faith first, family second and career third.

This week we have been giving you a helping hand with Mother's Day gift ideas and today I continue the trend with an overhaul of products I reviewed just for the special day! 

Bath  Body Works Mothers Day Candle certified fabulous

1) I will start with a classic gift that most anyone loves and last longer than a bouquet of flowers, yet will make the room smell like flowers...candles! There is an amazing new candle just for Mother's Day from Bath & Body Works: Love Mom "Bright Bouquet" candle. A 3-wick candle with a beautiful blend of floral, citrus and the perfect hint of mint! The presentation is beautiful and the scent is SO amazing! I only have to have it lit for about 30 minutes and my whole house is filled with the sweet scent of flowers like I had an entire garden in my living room! sPerfect for a mother-in-law you are meeting for the first time, a mom who loves to scent her home, a mom who loves flowers...most anyone really. I love it so much and you can't go wrong with a scented candle as a gift!


05082013 Mary Kay Facial Highlighting Pen Certified Fabulous2) A non-typical gift for Mother's Day, but something she wants but would never ask for! The Mary Kay: Highlighting Pen! The pen has sspecial light-reflecting pigments that optically “lift” the shadowy areas of your face. Instantly your skin looks brighter, your tone more even and your face more radiant. I love this pen because it is so easy to use and blends perfectly. It doesn't clump when it's mixed over my foundation on my face and glides easily with the twist on the bottom which dispenses liquid through the brush. Sweep it under your eyes to brighten your eye area and hide dark circles or you can even use it on other areas of your face that create shadow, like smile lines around the mouth. Also great to use on your lower lip / chin crease area. I use it on top of my foundation but it can also be used as the first step before foundation or worn alone. This is perfect for the mom that wears makeup, is looking to brighten her face and hide age sports/ dark circles, or the new mom :) It is a little secret weapon that every woman should have in their makeup bag or purse.
