Bobbi Brown: New Book, Site, and Palette!

The last thing I need is another beauty book to buy, site to visit daily, and a palette filled with items that are workable for everyday looks. However, when Bobbi Brown’s name is attached, how can you or I not want all three of these items in our life.

Keep reading to see more about the latest addictive additions from Bobbi Brown.

Renowned makeup artist Bobbi Brown is helping young women become their most amazing selves with her fresh, new beauty bible Beauty Rules. In Beauty Rules, Bobbi builds beauty from the inside out with tips on everything from exercise and eating right to the importance of being a great friend.  And, of course, there’s plenty about getting great makeup.

“We live in a digital age now where girls have access to so much information; the messages are mixed and confusing for young girls. I wrote Beauty Rules because I wanted to give each of these girls the tools and knowledge they need to be their most confident selves. The book also contains step by step beauty tips, and information about healthy living, as beauty is not only what you look like on the outside, it’s what you put inside your body as well.” – Bobbi Brown

In celebration of her new book, Bobbi designed a pretty palette of wearable eye, lip and cheek colors and launched a new site, www.BeautyRules.com. The sites features behind the scenes photos and video footage, before and after images, and a quiz that allows users to create their own set of beauty rules, while accurately match themselves to one of the girls in the book. Plus, a great mother-daughter makeover sweeps.

“What I’ve discovered is that many girls are introduced to makeup by their mothers who are bringing them to the makeup counters. I hope that Beauty Rules can help to start the dialogue between mothers and daughters about beauty, nutrition, and overall wellness and self-confidence. It’s a reference guide for mothers just as much as it is for their daughters.” -Bobbi Brown

The limited edition palette features edgy but totally wearable eye, lip and cheek colors that can work any age and occasion.

The palette and book are both currently available for sale on www.BobbiBrownCosmetics.com and visit www.BeautyRules.com to see more info from the book.

P.S. I wish I knew that you get free shipping on every order when you order from BobbiBrownCosmetics.com! I would have been doing that instead of fighting the fiesty and fabulous dames at my local Bobbi Brown counter.

Brushing Up With… Brush Cleaners!

She’s BBAAACCKK! Yes, in-house beauty junkie, Beautylishus is back with two reviews on two different brush cleaners; Essence of Beauty Brush Cleaner and ELF Brush Cleaner. Keep reading to see her opinions!

Essence of Beauty Brush Cleanser: I’m a Essence of Beauty product fan so when I saw their brush cleaner on the wall I just had to try it! However, I was a tad bit apprehensive because the price was $10.00 for a drugstore brand, but I just sucked up my frugality and went ahead and bought it. When it was time to actually test the product I had hopes that it would be a good quick clean process but I was mistaken. The cleaner did clean the brush, but it wasn’t as fast drying as I would have hoped. The brush smell isn’t very pretty. Somewhat on the strong side. Think of a mixture between a flowery perfume and bleach and that’s what the smell is similar too. The thing that I really did like about this product is how there was no trace of makeup left in the brush. It completely clean and cleared out my eyeshadow brush fully pigmented with mac’s chrome yellow shadow! This product is a pretty okay product to just have, but if I were to skip it during checkout, I most definitely would.

ELF Brush Cleaner: When I received this product in the mail, I didn’t think too much of it because its made by the budget $1 cosmetic company ELF. after realizing that it was apart of their “pro” line, I became reeeeeeally excited  because their black label “pro” items have yet to fail me. This cleanser is a must have because it not only smells good but by the time you are finished cleaning (by brushing the bristles back and forth across a dry fabric) it dry and ready to be used. It also left no trace of color. It’s quick drying,good smelling inexpensive product! This officially stays in my kit. You should have it in your stash also!

The NEW Reach by Design Collection

When I was a little girl and my mom tried to buy me a simple solid-colored otherwise “blah” toothbrush, I would pout like no other! I never wanted just a red, yellow, or white toothbrush. Instead, I wanted one that had a colorful print or one of my many favorite cartoons stuck along it (Did they ever make a Gem toothbrush?!), because I loved having a fun and different colored printed toothbrush. When my mom would reach for one of those “bleh” ones, I would scream “No! I want one of the pretty ones!” So, when I saw these Reach’s new Design Collection toothbrushes, I couldn’t help but feel like a little girl again wanting one of the “pretty ones”!

The new Reach by Design Collection features the same awesome quality toothbrushes that makes Reach one of my favorite, but with some new fun and chic prints. Reach enlisted a group of style and tastemakers that included interior designers Tom Delevan and Celerie Kemble and celeb stylist Brad Goreski to created a limited edition collection of bright and unexpected prints and patterns that could help add a splash of style to any bathroom.

Personally, I’m in the mood for the zebra print, yellow striped, or the pixel print ones. One of the many benefits of having an all white bathroom means that I can pick any color I want!

Since they are limited edition, I suggest you pick out your favorite and get it now! So, which one tickles your fancy?

The perfect 1-2 for a ‘Completely Bare’ chin

Over the past couple of years, I’ve been slowly figuring out a lot of things that my skin loves and needs to look the best it can. Now that I’ve found a skin care regimen that, for the most part, helps my combo/acne skin stay clear, the next thing I needed to do was find out how to clear a few “bumps” in the road that even the strongest regimen couldn’t cross, until now!

Keep Reading for More!

Awhile a back, I reviewed Completely Bare’s Completely Smooth for Body and I love it! In my review, I mentioned that I wanted to try the Completely Smooth for Face. So, Completely Bare was fabulous enough to send it to me to review.

When I got the Completely Smooth for Face, they had also included Bikini Bump Blaster, which was an unexpected surprise.

Why beat around the bush…I get facial hair on my chin. Let me rephrase that, I get stubborn and continuously thick facial hair on my chin that despite weekly waxing, still grows back and just has thick. Ugh, it pisses me off just typing about them!

Anyway, I needed to try and find, not a good, but an awesome hair epilator for my face, but also something to help ingrown hairs.

Although the bikini blaster is for ingrown hairs in the bikini area and thought it would work just as well on my face, I still wanted to try the razor bump pads, which are aimed more for men who get razor pumps. So, I ordered with my own moolah the razor bump blaster pads. They combined with the completely smooth for face seem to be the 1-2 combination I need to keep my chin smooth.

Now, just like with the completely bare for body, don’t expect for your hair to just stop growing for a long time. They do however, slow down the growing process and the hair grows back thinner and not so obvious.

I will say this, I didn’t notice a difference in the texture and formula between the fCompletely Smooth for face and body lotions. The obvious difference is the size of the bottles with the one for body being a little taller.

Also, I after trying both ingrown hair pads for both the bikini area and razor, I also didn’t notice that much of a difference except that the Bikini Blaster had no scent while the Razor Bump Blaster seemed to have a “manly” scent that I kinda liked!

To sum it up, Completely Bare is continuing to get me hooked to their products and if you try them you just might get a hooked, too!
