Style Item of the Week- Big Girl Cosmetics Diva Gloss

by Lisa

The GF firmly believes every woman should have signature pieces both in her wardrobe and as part of her makeup regime that make those who know and love her say, yes, that looks like YOU. I rarely cross the threshold of my front door without mascara, a little powder and my signature gloss – everyone who knows me well knows of my affinity for pink, almost nude lips that pop.

I am always on the hunt for the “perfect” glosses here are a few things I consider before making a purchase:

• No stickiness! I hate it when my hair gets stuck in my lips because of overly sticky lip-gloss formulas

• Moisturizing- I love a product that serves double duty- offering up a powerful punch of color, while keeping my lips kissable and soft

• Color- unfortunately, I am a creature of habit and I inevitably opt for a pink nude, or sheer brown hue. Though there are many options that fit these criteria, I’m always looking for something that adds a bit of sparkle to my sheer lips

Big Girl Cosmetics Diva gloss hits all of my criteria- Here’s a bit about the product from the site: Diva Gloss for the Diva in You! When only the best will pass the test. We’ve paired high shine and great shades to create the ultimate lip gloss. This is the ultra-brilliant formula that delivers transparent shine, sensuous shimmer, and sumptuous shades.

I received a sample of the Berry Diva and I absolutely fell in love… the Diva gloss is currently on sale for $10! Visit Big Girl Cosmetics to order yours today.

Style Item of the Week-Black Opal Mineral Mosaic Palettes

by Lisa

Every once in awhile I come across a product that I truly love and when I love something I have to share it with you! This week, I am happy to introduce Black Opal’s Mineral Mosaic Palettes. These shadows have amazing pigmentation and I frequently find myself using the Gold Galaxy which features colors that range from rich gold, brilliant oranges and the most amazing yellow. Couple my love with the rich colors with the fact that a gold eye paired with a nude lip is very on trend for summer and you have perfect love affair

Black Opal Mineral Mosaic Palettes retails for $8.95

Stay prettiful!

A 3-in-1 Cleanser That Works!

I am always looking for anything that will save me time with my overall “get pretty” routine. Often one- step cleansers fall short of their promises to clean, remove make up and moisturize, and inevitably leave me feeling either too dry, or too oily. Enter Purete Thermale 3-in-1 Facial Cleanser by Vichy. I absolutely love this product! A “One Step Cleanser Cleansing Milk, Toning lotion and eye makeup remover all in one. A combination of ubiquinone, a cellular respiration activator, and nutrient-rich Vichy Thermal Spa Water”

Vichy is great for folks with normal to dry skin, and it leaves you feeling both cleansed and moisturized in one easy step.

Renowned nail guru Jin Soon has developed a delicious nail collection for MAC cosmetics. The high-gloss formula comes in three finishes- cream, sheer and frosted and I absolutely love the colors!!

Dry martini is a perfect fall neutral with olive green undertones, and Cool Reserve comes in a lilac-pink shade that’s perfect for the fashionista who likes a more understated shade.

The colors are available beginning August 27th.

Style Item of the Week L’Oreal Jelly Balm

The L’Oreal HIP Jelly Balm is one of my absolute favorite new products in the HIP line. It’s perfect for summer, especially when you want to give them a little something extra at the beach, or poolside.

The colors are sheer, with just the right balance of moisture, without stickiness. I am also completely in love with the Kohl eyeliner, and the HIP shadow. The price point is one of the best things about these products- They can all be found at a Target near you!

Style Item of the Week- Butter by Keba

The GF loves her smell good, and I was recently introduced to a fab new product called Butter by Keba. The fragrant 2-in-1 moisturizing, body butters were created by Makeba Lloyd- ‘born in Harlem and produced in Brooklyn’ and they do an amazing job of moisturizing your skin, without any greasy residue.

The body butters warm when they touch the skin, and the Georgia Tea fragrance reminds me of warm summer nights, sipping sun tea on my grandmothers’ porch. The Georgia Tea notes include list, passion flower and peach nectar- yummy!

Check them out for yourself:

Happy Shopping,

Style Item of the week-Stiletto Survival

This past Sunday, I watched a fellow fashionista struggle while her foot slipped out of her stilettos as she tipped her way into church.

Girlfriend was dressed to the nines in a well tailored black suit, with a gorgeous blouse; however her foot slippage seriously detracted from her entire look.

In order to keep your shoe game on point (and avoid ensemble ruining foot slips) The GF recommends Heavenly Heels by Foot Petals.

Your feet will thank you!

Style Item of the Week-Hello Kitty

The GF consistently manages to get sucked into “shopping television”. I swear, I can flip thru channels with every intention of watching something else and then BAM! I get sucked into someone’s presentation on HSN, or QVC.

Well this Hello Kitty Diamonique pendant is too adorable (found on QVC) not to share with my fellow fashionistas, and the low price point makes it my style item of the week.

Happy Shopping!
