BTOTW (Beauty Tip Of The Week) Sept 27- Oct 1, 2010

 The cold really does a number to your hair and the best way to take care of that is by using a deep conditioner. It's always good to deep condition if you color, perm, and use hot tools on that mane.  It help to add more moisture in your hair that the cold air takes away. Below are a few tips to use for different textures of hair.

Fine & Limp hair: Not to weigh your hair down, make sure to just apply on the below the roots to the ends.
Curly: Deep condition and use a leave in conditioner. 
Normal: Deep condition 2-3x a month. 
Perm & Colored Treated: Make sure to deep condition after any hair service and use products that fade resist.

A few items I can't live without. 
Moroccanoil MoroccanOil (select option/size)MoroccanOil Intense Hydrating 8.5-oz Mask
MoroccanOil                                 Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask

Naked Palette
Yes! You are seeing right. It's Urban Decay's Naked Palette. I was trying not to believe the hype but I broke down and got it 2 weeks ago and LOVE IT! Now I'm part of the hype and it's well worth it. Great color and good pay off. What's not to love! It's hard to find but go online to Urban Decay's website and get on the wait list now or call your local Sephora & Ulta and ask if they having any available. $44

This is for my curly hair Glammies out there.When washing your hair, it's best to apply your conditioner and comb or pick (which I prefer) your hair out to detangle those pesky curly knots out. Once your done rinse and air dry or you can also use a diffuser if your on the go.

Some of my fav products for my curly man are below.

Makeup Forever Mini Haul

Thursday, September 16, 2010

My Bestie (Jahnne in Chicago I love you B) had be asking me to go check out Makeup Forever's store in NYC and get a few things she really needed. I had never gone since I'm still fairly new to the East Coast. So, one day my BF (Gaby A.K.A Peanut) and I went to the city and he had a meeting to attend so I took advantage and dropped by MUFE Store on 12th St..

I got a few things for the Bestie and chose these 3 Lab Shine gloss in D22, S2. and S4. The D22 color is not shown for it's true color. It's an orange color with glitter and once applied it's a more sheer glittery gloss. S2 is a shimmer nude color and S4 is a pink golden color with shimmer. They are very lovely colors and are perfect for day and night.  They aren't sticky and have such a beautiful shine. Not available in Sephora but other items from MUFE are available.  These glosses are only available at their store in Union Square 8 E 12th St, NewYork (212) 941-9337. 
If you're ever in NYC, you must go by the store. 

Review On Urban Decay BOS III UD Loves NYC

I've had this baby for a few weeks and still haven't touched it until the other day. I'm glad I waited cause I was super excited when I opened it and had the moment of AWWWWWWW. My BF and I waited in line for 6-7 hours at Sephora Time Square for the Urban Decay (Book Of Shadows III) BOS III event on Aug 28, 2010. Talk about being a makeup junkie.

Anyways, back to the main subject BOS III. The set includes 7 new shadow colors, 9 of UD's top seller, 24/7 liners in Zero & Ransom, and of course primer potion. Below I tried to swatch the eyeshadow as best as I could. I'm pretty dark from the summer and some colors don't show on my tan. Here they are in order from left to right.

The set was sold out at the store and Urban Decay sold out on their website in 10 minutes. Urban Decay is out there killing it with Alice In Wonderland, Naked Palette, and now BOS III UD Hearts NYC. I wonder what they have under their sleeves? I look forward on waiting and seeing.

You can even seat on it when traveling. It holds up to 300 lbs. Amazing! It has has these cool light up wheels that help when your going upstairs. No more pulled back muscles with this baby. YAY Zuca!

This tip is a beauty and health tip. Now, with the seasons changing it's time to start preventing from getting a cold and help brighten up your skin. What works best is....... Vitamin C. Vitamin C is an antioxidant and helps fight free radicals, scrapes & bruises, and can help your body rev up its production of collagen. It also helps your immune system to help fight your common cold. So stock up on vitamin C and products that have vitamin C in them.
