My most recent box from Beauty Fix included, Purlisse Pur Lip Comfort Daily Lip Nourisher 0.5oz, a daily lip nourisher that will now and forever be found in my purse. Love, Love, Love it! and you will too.
It kept my lips silky soft for hours at a time, but my biggest secret was to put it on before bed for long lasting kissable lips.
Not only is this velvety sensation petroleum free, it includes Mango Butter, Shea Butter and Vitamin E which makes the cost of $22.00 completely worth it.The clear glossy look is perfect for daytime but the nourishing balm is also great to wear under a vibrant lip color for a smooth application for a night out on the town!
You will want to check out Purlisse Pur Lip Comfort Daily Lip Nourisher 0.5oz for yourself.

Have you looked in the mirror and noticed that you have a neck that resembles one of those wrinkled dogs with sagging skin as well as chest wrinkles appearing out of nowhere?
It is often the case that your neck and chest will be the first place you notice visible signs of aging.
Great!Sweet… And if this happened to you recently, it is at the exact same time that all of those stunning little Sundresses are all over the Malls.Time to retaliate.
Many women invest in expensive creams, lotions, potions and even cosmetic procedures on their face while ignoring the decollete and chest area. It is no wonder that these two very thin skin areas of your body will ultimately be the tell tale sign of your age. It is never too late to slow down and ultimately diminish the look of the wrinkles that you currently have on your chest and neck to reveal much more appealing luminous skin suitable to wear even the hottest strapless dress.

Â When I was first approached to review Erth Mineral Make Up , I was rather skeptical as I reside in a euphoric marriage with my present choice of skincare and foundation and would need to put it aside for a period of time to do Erth Minerals justice.
Â Currently, it is a personal pet peeve that some bloggers choose to write only favorable reviews. I perceive this behavoir as entirely offensive due to the absurdity connected with the idea that every product (especially cosmetics for women???) would appeal to everyone.
Â You ask my opinion and that’s exactly what you get…Honesty.
Â I threw caution to the wind because I was very impressed with the professionalism of the woman behind the request, as well as the full service offering of related products, mineral makeup education, companion cosmetic brushes and an appealing website.

Who said a tan is unhealthy? I am not suggesting you spend your vacation on a raft in the Gulf of Mexico tanning BUT do not underestimate the benefit of my first of five simple tips to put you well on your way to gorgeous this summer.
1. Self Sunless Tan
- It will make you eyes appear whiter as well as your teeth. The deepened color on your face will naturally create the illusion.
- Everyone will think you look healthier.
- Makes you appear thinner and will even diminish the unsightly appearance of cellulite.
I have a couple of favorite Self Tanners in my beach bag. The first is Bella Bronze Sunless tanning Lotion . The Mediterranean blend of Chamomile, Goats Milk, Olive Oil and Shea butter will make you skin feel fabulous while revealing a flawless, deep golden tan…Love it! and no streaking allowed.
SeneSun wash on tanner offers a fail safe application process by applying it with a body poof in the shower and rinsing it off. Step out, towel dry off to discover a light brown bronze tone that will become more intense with a second and third application over the next few days2.
2. Teeth Whitening
- The added confidence alone is well worth the effort.
- Most teeth have a yellow or gray tint which intensifies with various foods you eat and is never attractive..
- Whiter teeth will naturally make you appear younger and the added benefit will make you smile more often.
Unless you plan on having your teeth professionally whitened, the winner is Crest White Strips…hands down. Crest White strips are the best over the counter, moderately priced teeth whitening system.

Capture an instant lift of pretty by charging out the door to purchase a new lipstick or save some gas and let your fingers do the shopping online.
Honesty is sitting on my shoulder as truth presents that it is a fact that Lipstick sales rise when the economy is in the tank and you can bet those boys rally around the keg as beer sales also soar.

Indulging oneself with high end cosmetics is a luxury that many women cannot afford these days.
Time for little creativity!
Looking and feeling your best does not need to break the bank. Oftentimes, it will only take a couple of low cost cosmetics and beauty regimens to arrive at a brighter and more youthful appearance. In fact, you may consider subtracting makeup that you deemed necessary in the past when putting your best face forward daily.
Have you ever heard that less is more?
1. Never underestimate concealing your way to a flawless finish. A white concealer can easily be blended with your foundation to give you a fully customized color specifically for your skin. Take a small amount of the white concealer and blend it to approximately two shades lighter than your foundation. Dot a small amount of your blended concealer on any brown, green or red spots that need concealing. Use a small brush to stipple your way to blending perfection. Use a more generous amount of concealer under your eyes, let it set and access if you require second layer. This artistic technique of camouflaging your skin imperfections promises to add to the mystery of your age.

Calling a budget shopping divas!Bargains are a necessity in the current climate our economy here in the US or for that matter, the world. ABC Good Morning America did a story this am in conjunction with Glamour Magazine that is named quite appropriately…
Â Â “Recessionista meets Fashionista”…Don’t you just love that title?
Â Â You will turn flips over the deals found on these splendid COATS that were identified for as low as TEN dollars.
Â But First!!! It is my personal feeling that when you run out to purchase one of theseChic yet cost effective coats (maybe several) for such a deal. Please purchase an extra (or more) and donate it to someone in need or just take it to your local Burlington Coat Factory .

Oh the Excitement!
that is stirring in me at the mere thought of launching a series of gift ideas for the styled down beauty and fashion mavens from young to the young at heart. No! No! No! You will never hear â€œOlder or matureâ€ here… as both words sound dreadful. What immediately comes to my mind is one foot fully in the grave while the other dangles aimlessly suspended on limited, borrowed time. Ut uh!
Time to Face the fact that a self proclaimed fashionista determines her own wants, needs and desires and rest assured age doesn’t play a factor.
