Whole Lotta Rosy - L'Oreal Paris Age Perfect Rosy Tone Mask and Moisturizer review.

I have used L'Oreal Paris products before, so I was
excited when I received samples of the Age Perfect Rosy Tone Mask and Moisturizer to review.

While I don't exactly identify (yet) to Helen Mirren, I am supposedly in the "mature skin" range so I decided to give it a go...
Who's it for? It's marketed for mature skin, and is supposed to give it that "healthy, rosy, youthful glow". According to L'Oreal, the Imperial Peonny Extract and LHA's in the mask,work to slough away the dead skin cells and reveal a renewed skin surface.While the day cream has a (very) pink tint to it, which add to the "glow" to give you that just scrubbed look. How do you use it? After washing your face, apply the mask in circular motion to gently exfoliate and leave on for 5 mins, then rinse off and apply the moisturizer. 

Does it work? I wanted to like this, but to be honest I was very disappointed.  The mask was slightly irritating to my skin. I usually am…

The Crazy (but true) Things We Do in The Name of Beauty

When I was 14 years old, I had a really beautiful best friend.
I won't say she was evil, but I will say, adolescence is difficult, and friends sometimes do shitty things to each other ...
You get the picture?

 As for my friend? (Let's call her "Suzie".)
She had the longest lashes I had ever seen!      


 I had tried everything to get mine to look as long as hers; Gobs of mascara separated with a safety pin...Baby powder under my mascaraOlive oil every night Nothing worked, finally, I asked her...

"Suze, how can I get my lashes to look like yours, all long and beautiful? She said, Do you really wanna know?
Yes, whatever it is, I'll do it, just name, it I said.
Cut them, she said.
Cut them???
Yup, she said
How short do I cut them?
That depends,... How long do you want them? Her eyebrows raised, The shorter you cut them, the longer they'll grow" she told me.

The crappy job that changed my life forever!

Please forgive this blast from the past....
Going thru my archives, I was thinking of my muse, as I packed up baby clothing for the proud mama who is due in a few short months....



This is a tribute to Kia, my muse.

There are just some people that touch your soul... You meet them, and you are never ever the same again.
A few years ago, while teaching at a makeup academy in Orlando (who's name I won't even bother to promote)
 I was very fortunate, to befriend a wonderful student of mine, Kiarina.
She was my angel and one of the sweetest girls I'd ever met. She seemed really shy and I would do her makeup to bring her out of her shell.  I loved doing makeup on Kia and considered her my muse.

Months, after I had stopped teaching and returned to my life in New York, I got a call from one of my students about Kia.  I was devastated to learn that she was in a near fatal car crash that put her in a coma for nearly 4 months! I was beside myself, I had to get back to Orlando, I had…
