Derma IQ SmartLash: Important Update!



I am now 10 weeks into my IQ Derma SmartLash stash.  I say stash because I received my second shipment from Dermstore.com, without getting through my first one.  Smartly, I did opt for the 60 day $29.99 renewal plan...if I haven't used one up in 60 days, I certainly did need one in 30.  The only way to stay on board with this deeply discounted price, is to stay on the plan, so I figured I better amp up my applications.  A good thing happened along the way...

Spring! Girls Night Out

Spring! Girls Night Out

One of the nicest things about having dinner out with your Gal Pals is that chances are, everyone has made a bit of an effort to find the right balance of casual and chic. After 2 years of amassing greige and taupe, I can't help but smile at all the delicious color out there.

I have been having such a good time creating my fantasy closet via Polyvore.  Merchandise can be so tightly crammed in stores today, that it is sometimes hard to imagine how current trends might translate to our style and body types.

I definitely recommend visiting the featured sets on Polyvore for fresh ideas and to simply enjoy the wonderfully creative people who create these sets with great style and whimsy.

Too that, I aspire.

Review: Skinnygirl Tinted Daily Moisturizer

Skinnygirl Tinted Daily Moisturizer
$10.99. Available in 3 Shades
Bethenny Frankel is one of those polarizing people; either you love her or your hate her.  One thing I don't think anyone can take away from her is that she is one savvy business woman and a successful author.

On the heels of her lucrative sale of her Skinnygirl Margarita to a large distiller and distributor, she is expanding her brand by taking on the world of beaute. 

Even more interesting, was that she chose to go mass, launching her face and body collection at Walmart.  I reckon that someone who ha multiple Birkin bags, has probably never set toe in a Walmart,  but like I already pointed out, she is not only a Skinnygirl, but a Clevergirl too.

I've never set toe in a Walmart either, so when I was offered the opportunity to try one of  her products, I jumped at the chance to sample Skinnygirl Tinted Daily Moisturizer in Mocha, (this link will take you to her newly launched website.)  It's nice to have the option...

Upon opening and discovering a built in brush, it called to mine the By Terry Light Expert I purchased this summer in Toffee.


Skinnygirl Tinted Daily Moisturizer in Mocha, is a rich, burnished nutty brown that looks completely natural on meThis is the exact shade of toasted almond, I used to bake myself to, in my youth.  Am I in heaven???  You bet.

As much as I wanted to love Expert Light, (and believe me, for what I paid for it, I really did want to love it), the color never blended as well on my skintone as it did under those fairy lights at Bloomingdales.

In addition, Skinnygirl Tinted Moisturizer, is infused with a Broad Spectrum SPF 15, which Light Expert lacks.  You may need to add a touch of additional moisturizer to get it to distribute seamlessly--SPF is notoriously tacky, but it's easily managed.

Am I tempted to try other Skinnygirl  beauty products?  Yup.  I already have my eye on the her Skinnygirl Body Solutions Smooth And Firming Body Lotion and Body Wash.

At these prices, I can be a Clevergirl too.
