Is your makeup drawer filled to the brim with products that haven’t been used in forever? I hear a resounding YES among my fellow beauty addicts. But there’s just something about the word “new” that gets our hearts racin’ and makes us do crazy things like acquire even MORE stuff, but just shy of the disease called hoarding – I hope. Let’s see if you can resist snapping up one of these new product offerings.
The first of the newest product launches is a hair product called Shake It by Biomega (only sold in salons, click here to locate one near you). Shake It takes your hair style from basic to super modern with two to three sprinkles of this powder activator that you can mix with any styling or texturing product to increase volume and hold and then apply mixture to your hair and style. Your first thought may be “won’t powder make my hair dry?” No, because Shake It is rich with three types of Omega oils which delivers flexible and shiny hair. For now, please refer to the Aquage website to see how this product works live and maybe you’ll feel inspired to step out of your comfort zone and do something different with your “do.” Stay tuned, because I will start posting videos very soon on how to use this and other products and various makeup looks – please join me in my jubilee ladies!
Laura Geller’s Lip Couture Gift Set ($35, laurageller.com) is the most adorable kit I’ve seen in a long time. The owner of the company, Ms. Geller has a special place in my heart because she’s all about making the ladies who lunch uptown to the stylista’s downtown take center stage in this thing called life with a little help from the products in this red lips signature wristlet. It includes Lip Spackle which is a primer for your lips that helps lip color last and last without feathering, two Creme Couture Lipsticks, and if the individual colors don’t work for you, blend the two shades together to create your own brand of sexy. But my hands down favorite product in this kit is Lip Strip because it exfoliates your flakey lips and reveals, soft smooth lips. To use: dip finger into scrub and massage lips in a circular motion for 30 seconds and rinse off.
