Hair Restoration; Two things to share

Baby Bliss Italo Luminoso Hair Dryer

I feel extraordinarily guilty about my blow dryer graveyard.  It's extensive and they are all in perfect working condition.  If any of you Lovelies, have a recommendation as to where I can donate them, I'm all ears.

The one thing I do know, is none of them were giving me what I desired; reduced drying time, high wattage and nano technology for increased shine, despite their claims.  I've always wanted to try a Baby Bliss dryer, but was not interested in paying a couple of hundred dollars for one.

Neither apparently was my colorist Melissa, who discovered the Baby Bliss Italo Luminoso Hair Dryer.  It's a goodie, and with a $79.99 price tag, I left the salon and headed straight to Ulta.  While researching this post, I just found it available through this link at Walmart, for a whopping $20 less.  2000 watts of perfect.

Pretty much, it's the dryer of my dreams, so whether or not you need it, I don't think you will be disappointed if you buy it, and certainly not, for that price.

That's part 1....

Revlon Fill and Blur Concealer

Revlon Fill and Blur Concealer
$11.99

Lovelies, am I ever going to stop compulsively buying new concealers??? Nah.
My stash, runneth over, currently consisting of: Neutrogena, IT, Maybelline Super Stay, Cover FX,  Glo Minerals, Physician's Formula and now Revlon Fill and Blur Concealer.

The bait that stopped me in my tracks of course, was the promise of "filling in fine lines" as well as blurring them. If only...

Flashback Friday: Maybelline SuperStay 24 Color Lipstick

Maybelline Super Stay 24 Color Lipstick
36 Shades $9.00 (give or take)
I don't know why I move on from things I have loved and review well in the past.
Originally, I tried Maybelline's SuperStay 24 Color back in 2011.

Pretty much, it met and somewhat exceeded my expectactions; LONG wear, with a considerably less drying formula than its competitors in the field.  It's as close as I'm ever going to get to my fantasy of tattooed lips.

They have extended the shade offerings, 36 in all,  with 045 Wildberry comes close to my idea of a dream shade; a just bitten, natural looking lip.  I also love using it to lock my beloved MAC Soar Lip Pencil in place, basically, all day.

My Nails are Back!!! My 2 Step Recovery Program




I have pretty much, always had nails like granite.  Then one day, like your first rogue chin hair or the moment you think every publisher has changed their print to mice type, my once lovely nails, were splitting and bending.

It was then that I discovered Nailtiques Formula 2, a strengthener designed for weak brittle nails.  After that, I used it with routine and once again my nails flourished.

Happy 4th of July!!!




Happy Independence Day Lovelies!

Fascinating Fact:  Both Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, the only signers of the Declaration of Independence, (who both later served as Presidents of the United States), died on the same day,  July 4th, 1826, 50 years after the day they signed it!!!

Remarkable!

Do have a fun, safe and Happy 4th, however you are celebrating.  Our store, Mary Jane Denzer will be closed today in observation of the Holiday.

Enjoy...

Happy 4th Beautiful!



I recently blogged about my go-to leg tanning fave, Vita Liberate's Body Blur. I love everything about it except the $45 price tag.  Still, I cannot live without it, in the summer, when I tend to wear dresses daily.

I noticed my tube dwindling, so I decided to look on line and see if anyone would ship it to me free.

Well, not only did I find an online beauty company that ships everything free, always, they were also selling my beloved Body Blur for 25% less than everyone else!  This heavenly site is called Lovely Skin.

Review: Rimmel London #Insta Flawless

Rimmel London Insta Flawless
$7.99


When my friends at Tractenberg PR, told me about #Insta Flawless, a product Rimmel London describes as an illuminating "skin tint", my curiosity was piqued.  With SPF 15, and the promise of all day hydration, I thought it would be an interesting product to try, as the dog days of summer will soon be upon us.

#Insta Flawless comes in two shades; Light-Medium and Medium-Dark.  The Medium Dark works nicely, on my always a bit fake baked skin, but I'm sure others would prefer/need, the addition of a Dark shade.

Update: L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara
$10 (in the Hinterlands, somewhere...)



Well Lovelies, I told you the Internet was blowing up over this  Too Faced Better Than Sex dupe by L'Oreal.  Glamour just reviewed it just reviewed it and there editor was pleased with her results.

I finally got to CVS and was initially flummoxed not to find it among, maybe twenty different L'Oreal Mascara offerings, (if men wore mascara daily, there would be two choices from one product; waterproof and non-waterproof. Period.)

Then my brain cells kicked up a notch and went to the front of the store where the newest launches live... Voila!

I got lucky. There were only two left; one Black and the other Blackest Black. Guess which one I chose???? Riiiiiight.

L'Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara--Is this the one???

L'Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara
$9.99 (ish)



Has it finally arrived??? My drugstore mascara Holy Grail??? Please, let it be so...

The Internet is blowing up over this Too Faced Better Than Sex dupe, offered by L'Oreal, and I can't wait to get my hands on it.  Bloggers as well as Vlogger's are singing it's praises for its ability to provide gorgeous length and volume, for a fraction of the price of the big guns.

One to Skip! Charlotte Tilbury Overnight Bronze & Glow Mask

Charlotte Tilbury Overnight Bronze and Glow Mask
Gulp...$55

Oh my...how did I get suckered into this purchase???  No one to blame except Moi, who foolishly believed in the fairy tale of going to bed pasty and waking up looking like I spent a week at a spa in St. Bart's.

Granted, said transformation can take between one and three nights, but I'm here to tell you, on night four (and today, day one), I've got nada.  Additionally, there is a minuscule amount of product in this pretty tube.

Soooooo disappointing!!!
