Homemade Lip Exfoliation Sugar Scrub Recipe

With Winter fast approaching, us glamouristas have to switch up our skincare routine... an that includes paying extra attention to our lips! If not properly cared for, the cold, dry weather can chap and dry-out normally soft lips. There are several ways we can prevent this from happening with adequate internal and external care.

First, we want to ensure we are not dehydrated by being conscious of our water intake. Make sure you are drinking enough water, this will help not only your lips, but your skin and complexion... Your skin is your largest organ, so let's take care of it so it can take care of us! Water also aids in kidney function, as well as everything else... remember, water is essential! I know it's cold and during these times, it's easier to reach for a hot cup of coffee or cocoa, but make sure you're getting some clear liquid intake as well. 

Secondly, be sure you are properly moisturizing and protecting your lips with a balm or salve. If you notice sticky lipglosses tend to make your lips peel, use them sparingly or try to avoid them altogether.

Lastly, exfoliate your lips once a week to remove dry, dead skin. I've seen lots of products on the market as well as homemade scrubs including sugar and balms, baking soda, salt, honey... I don't like the idea of using a balm because if that were the case, I'd just go with a manufactured scrub. The whole purpose of this was to be in total control of what I'm using on my lips (also, I'm not too keen on the idea of eating lip balm). Baking soda, as good as it is for your skin, again... if it's not in a cake, I'll pass. LOL As for salt, it can actually irritate skin, so I decided to skip salt altogether. Not to mention that the sodium draws moisture out, and well, that would be defeating the whole purpose, wouldn't you say? So I decided to stick with good 'ole sugar and honey... it's delicious, easy to work with, and by adding olive oil, you've got an excellent moisturizer and natural antioxidant. 

The recipe below is one that works well for me, of course you can tweak it to meet your own individual needs. For instance, if you have oily skin, you might want to skip adding the olive oil to the mixture and opt for carefully dabbing it onto lips once exfoliation is complete... you have lots of options and the best thing is, it's fool-proof. Oh, and from one Fexi to another, did I happen to mention it's delicious? ;)

1- tsp sugar
1 1/2- 2- tsp honey
1/2-tsp olive oil

Oh yes... and this recipe makes quite a bit, so feel free to scrub everyone's lips in your household or simply do a fraction of the recipe. ;)

MAC & Nicki Minaj?

So everyone's been talking about a pink lipstick to be released next Friday by MAC especially for Nicki Minaj's "Pink Friday" album release. Word on MAC's website is this lipstick will be offered exclusively online for only four Fridays. (Click here for more info)

Personally, I'm not a Nicki Minaj fan... at all. Ok, there's a few songs she's featured on that I'll bob my head to in the car, but I really can't get into her for some reason. However, I'm a sucker for anything pink... so I just might have to get my hands on some.

My question for you is... are you going to be up at midnight on MAC's website trying to get your tube?

Wet-N-Wild H2o Proof: The Perfect Waterproof Liquid Liner!

So late last week, I went to Walgreen's in search of the ever elusive Wet-n-Wild Holiday Palettes... I didn't find any (then), but what I did pick up is a product that I have grown to be equally, if not exceedingly excited about and I can't wait to share my latest drugstore-addiction with you!

Allow me to formally introduce you to Wet-n-Wild's H2o Proof Liquid Liner. I purchased this liner from Walgreens during a 50% off sale. It is normally $3.99, so I paid a little under $2. I figured if this didn't live up to expectations, I wouldn't be too disappointed because after all, it was just $2. Little did I know this under $2 liner would blow me away and inspire me to go on a Wet-n-Wild H2o Proof promotion-frenzy!

First, if you've watched my videos, you'll know I only use gel liner to line my upper lid. I've never been a fan of liquid liners for a few reasons. One, they typically head south at the slightest hint of water, sweat, moisture, tears, etc... I'm not trying to go through that entire mess and look like a 1985 Tammy-Faye Baker revival. Two, once your eyes start running, you can't reapply in those tough little corner areas! Am I the only one this happens to? It drives me completely bananas! Lastly, I'm never able to draw a solid line, the felt tips always seem to give me a "striped" effect where the middle appears lighter or disappears altogether!

Finding the perfect make-up product for whatever reason; formula, mechanism, color, etc... is kind of like finding the perfect man. Yeah, they're pretty much non-existent. Therefore, once you've found one that works, you may need to find a way to work with him, err... I mean, work with it. This is the case with Wet-n-Wild's H2o Proof liner.

If you visit the Walgreens website, you'll see that this product is receiving mixed reviews. While mostly positive, there are quite a bit of women who "hate" this liner for one or two reasons. One- it's hard to remove. Um, I'm sorry, did I miss something? Geez, you can sure tell we're women, huh? Never satisfied! We gripe if something doesn't have "staying power" and when we're hit with something that doesn't budge, we're still not satisfied! LOL Some of the other women were stating they absolutely despised the felt-tip brush and what it does to their lashes. While these are all valid concerns, let's revisit the reason we all purchased this product in the first place... it's a waterproof liquid liner- so let's allow it to do its thing!

The formula is definitely a force to be reckoned with. I have honestly NEVER found a liquid liner that I liked, much less a waterproof liquid liner formula, until now. It's like magic and I love this product... In fact, I love it so much, I want to show you how to make it work so you can love it too! Watch the video below, then run to your nearest Walgreens and make yourself the happy owner of a new, shiny, sexy, black, magic stick! Get your mind out of the gutter... we're were still talking about eyeliner here! LOL ;-)

Halloween Make-Up: Twilight Inspired- Alice Cullen

I was hired by Karen, a model I had worked with, to do make-up for her mother-in-law, Shawn,  for their Halloween party last Saturday. I had so much fun, they're all such great people, and their Halloween party was really well put-together! I wasn't able to stay for the entire party, because we had friends in from out of town, but I wanted to share a few pics with you all...

Meet Shawn... she's 54 years old and went as "Alice Cullen" for the party. She went all-out; button up top, vest, contacts, wig, even the Cullen crest choker! The transformation took us about 1 1/2- 2 hours because this look required a significant amount of airbrushing and foundation application to lighten her skin in order to achieve Alice's pale complexion. I really should have taken the pics before we applied the shimmer to her skin (her number one request was to sparkle like the veg-pires in Twilight). However it would have been too much of a hassle to have her get into costume just for pics, then remove it all to complete the shimmer application, just to have her get dressed again. :-/

Below are some pics from the hors d'oeuvres table...

On the menu: charred bones (wings), veggies, eye(meat)balls, mummy fingers, ghostly brownies, skull cupcakes, even a brewing pot in the middle of the table! Karen even whipped up some "witch's brew" for the kiddos... she did such an awesome job, this truly was photo-worthy. I wish I would've gotten some pics of Karen and her husband, Marty, they went as characters from True Blood. I haven't watched the show, but I heard it's great.

I had so much fun, it's really rewarding when you transform someone and they absolutely love the end result... Marty told Karen my fee was the best money they had ever spent! Hope all of you glam-ghouls and your little goblins had a great time! ;-)

Coco as Avatar!

Wow... can you believe it's November 1st? Where did 2010 go? I could really use some help in slowing down the time lately... LOL

Yesterday was Halloween and Coco decided she wanted to be an Avatar this year. We purchased her costume from Halloween City for about $25 and I did her make-up. She braided her own hair and wore some furry boots... it was really cute and we had a great time. She especially loved all the attention she got and even posed for a few pictures.

I used the Temptu airbrush system for the blue base... a mixture of their blue and white SB make-up. The stripes were created with NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk and the HHC Gel Liner in Oceanic. Using the same Gel Liner, I lined her eyes in a cat-shape. I took a dot-tool I use for my nails and dabbed white SB airbrush make-up at the ends of her stripes. I brushed a little of a rust color found in one of my Smashbox palettes to her eyes, nose, and cheeks. I also used that same color to contour the sides of her nose to give her that wide-nosed look of the Navi.

Hope all of you enjoyed your Halloween... did any of you big-kids dress up? What did you send your little ones out as? I've always enjoyed Halloween... so much fun. Now bring on Thanksgiving!! ;) LOL

*Update- Temptu Pro posted this pic on their Facebook Fan Page! <-- Click to view! :)

Hello Kitty Smart Car? Whaaaaat?

So while browsing the net this morning, I came across this... would it be wrong of me to say, "Look what the cat dragged in?" LOL

Sanrio, along with Smart Car, has released three new Smart Car wraps. Yes, you read that correctly. LOL The three new designs now bring the total Smart Car wrap count to 22. The wraps will run drivers around $1,500, with HK being a Limited Release.

As cutsie as HK may be, I really can't see a grown woman in a vehicle that looks like a mini-van cut in half with HK plastered all over it. High schoolers, maybe, but honestly... I don't think see any 16 or 17 year old driving this around campus. They look extremely uncomfortable, impractical, and quite honestly- down right dangerous. I would not feel comfortable letting my daughter be a passenger in this, let alone drive it. I need something with a "buffer"... when it comes to my child, I wouldn't count on nine lives.

Personally, I think my big behind might throw this little tyke off balance and have me stunting on two wheels... LOL What are your thoughts on these tiny Smart Cars? Have you rode or drove one? If you had your choice of an environmentally-sound vehicle, what would you choose? Lastly, if you saw this HK Smart Car on the road, would it bring a smile to your face? I know I would get a few good laughs in, and in today's world, who couldn't use a smile or two?

Nothing Like Make-Up Shopping To Brighten Your Day!

So I was in a bit of a slump yesterday and decided to hit up my neighborhood Walgreens and Ulta... Even though I told myself I wasn't going to shop, I couldn't resist the urge. Here's the goodies I scored! :)

Not much from Walgreens... just went in to pick up some cotton rounds but ended up grabbing two Wet-N-Wild "Idol Eyes" cream eyeshadow pencils for $1.99 ea., and a pack of the classic Maybelline Expert Wear pencils to throw in my kit. These are great when trying to achieve a simple smokey eye... however I usually make sure I run the tip of the pencil through a flame to soften the wax.

It was my bestie's husband's birthday yesterday so we went over to their place and had some dinner, let the kids play... and before going home, I stopped by Ulta. My original intention was to purchase the Mario Badescu Acne Repair Kit... but I picked up a few extras that I'm really excited to share with you!

I have been reseraching the Mario Badescu Acne Repair Kit for about a month now... Seems as though recently, within the last few months, I've been getting some cystic acne when my hormones surge during my cycle. This is cause for concern since I've never had an acne problem growing up... and I'm 31!

The Kit is $46, online and in Ulta stores, and contains the Drying lotion, Drying Cream, and Buffering Lotion. I used the Drying Lotion last night on a pimple, it claims to clear the whitehead pimples overnight... It was really simple, just dipped a q-tip in the solution and dabbed it on. I woke up this morning and it was gone! Pretty amazing stuff! I also massaged the Buffering Lotion onto a couple of areas which I could feel the cystic acne developing. This morning, after washing my face with warm water only, I noticed those areas that had noticable bumps due to the cystic acne had been significantly reduced. I was truly impressed!

I haven't had the chance to use the Drying Cream yet... But I'm sure it'll be just as incredible. I also purchased the Cucumber Cleansing Lotion and Silver Powder. The Cucumber Cleansing Lotion feels very refreshing and helps to prevent further breakouts by disinfecting (where bacteria is often the culprit). The Silver Powder has a consistency that reminds me of baking powder... I haven't had the chance to use this, but I can't wait! Simply dip a moistened cotton ball into the powder and dab onto areas where you would like to diminish blackheads, rinse after 10-minutes.
While at Ulta, I also picked up two UD 24/7 liners in "Zero"... my staple-eyeliner, along with "1999", "Covet", "Flipside", and a 24/7 lipliner in "Wicked". I love these liners... they're wonderfully smooth and have no problem staying-put! These liners are $16 ea, but well worth the investment as they are extremely long-lasting and give unsurpassed color pay-off.

From top to bottom: blue Wet-N-Wild eyeshadow pencil, purple duo-chrome Wet-N-Wild eyeshadow pencil, Maybelline Expert Eyes, "Wicked", "Flipside", "Covet", "1999", and "Zero".

You will also see the swatches of the two NYX lipsticks below...

As always, feel free to let me know if you have these products and how you like them. I'm especially curious to know if any of you have tried the Mario Badescu skincare line... since I'm a newbie, I'd like to hear your experience with it.

Have a great weekend, my pretty Glamouristas! :)

Have Something To Say To MAC?

Well great... sound-off and let 'em know! This morning I received an email, as many of you probably did as well, allowing you to review your favorite MAC "must haves". I hope they realize they've just opened up a whole Pandora's Box on their behinds! As many of you know, I am disappointed in MAC's steady decline in quality. If you agree, here's your chance to let them know!

Fave Lip Care Products

Good Morning Beauties!

I'm often asked what my favorite lip care products are... especially from my lovely clients and models. As many of you know, I swear by Aquaphor! Typically I will use this healing ointment before bed and in the mornings before I begin applying my make-up.

I used MAC's Lip Conditioner (and other lip balms) for several years, as part of the same routine, and noticed the condition of my lips had never improved. Though the MAC Lip Conditioner feels nice and smells pleasant, it does not heal chapped or peeling lips, nor does it protect and prevent further peeling.

From the moment I began using Aquaphor on my lips, I noticed a huge improvement! My lips no longer peel or feel uncomfortably dry. This truly is a miracle for your kissers! ;) I purchase the
1.75 oz tube and leave it in the bathroom to finish off my nightly skincare routine. This tube is usually around $5 and can be found at any Target, Wal-Mart, and many other drugstores. I have also purchased the twin pack of smaller tubes to keep one in my make-up bag and one in my kit, these are about $5 too. As for the male review; Rod typically uses whatever balm I use on my lips at night as well... and even he prefers the Aquaphor over the MAC Lip Conditioner

Throughout the day I'll alternate different products, one of which includes Smith's Rosebud Salve (thanks to a recommendation by Ree, aka Mama Fexi, herself!) I found this 0.8 oz tin at Sephora for around $6, great investment and totally worth it. This salve carries a light red tint, but is clear when applied, and also incorporates a wonderful rose-scented. The texture is light, but long-lasting, and so very smooth! In fact, both the Aquaphor and Rosebud Salve are in a petrolatum base and can be used on other dry parts of your body, so typically I'll apply it with a clean finger and rub the remainder into my cuticles... bonus! ;)

Another product I'm loving is the C.O. Bigelow "Mentha Lip Shine" in Vanillamint. I didn't actually purchase this product itself, it was included in a Summer Tote I purchased from Bath & Body Works the other month. If purchased separately, it carries a pricetag of $7.50 (but we all know B&BW always runs specials, like buy 2 get 1.) It has a refreshing, cooling sensation from the natural mint but is not tingly, which I like. Not only is this lip shine infused with natural vanilla and mint, which mingle together to create a great, clean scent, but it also claims to freshen breath... sounds good to me! LOL

For healthy-looking lips and flawless lipstick application, you want to be sure you're gently exfoliating once or twice a week to remove any dead skin and increase circulation. This will soften and plump, along with enhancing your natural lip color.

If you're looking for a great lip-saver for the upcoming winter months, be sure to check out any of these great products. I'm sure you'll love them!

Question for all my Glamouristas: what other lip-care products you've found to work wonders on your smackers? Please share your recommendations or no-go's below, and as always, please feel free to ask any questions. :)

Sex... Relationships... Cheating... and, of course, Love!

Hey Beauties! Last year sometime I started a separate channel on YouTube for topics other than make-up. I only made about 3 vids before I stopped. My Masturbation vid, first posted on my make-up channel, got over 15k hits, more than any of my make-up vids! LOL That same vid got 1,600 hits on the relationship channel.

Needless to say, the vids kinda took off and I'd like to get back into the swing of things on that channel. So... if you've got an extra minute, check out the channel... sub, comment, and send me your questions, ideas, topics. Let's get this channel popping! :)

Feel free to check out the vid below... Oh, and please remember: if you're going to be a subscriber or watch the vids on, please be over 18 and leave your sensitivities at the door! ;)

MAC Venomous Villains Products and FOTD

As many of you are aware, after months and months of anticipation and Twittering, MAC dropped their latest collection right before your last pay-day... or first of the month, whichever way you roll! LOL

To be completely honest, I was not impressed by much of the collection. I truly believe this had the power to be one of MAC's biggest launches... I don't remember this much buzz over many of their collections, aside from '07's Barbie or 09's Hello Kitty launches. The fact that many of the products were colors from the permanent line, or re-promotes, took a lot of the "oooh & ahhh" factor away.

However, with that being said, I did manage to find four items that I decided I wanted... and agreed to pay full-price for. Does that sound spoiled or what?? LOL I refuse to pay full-price for packaging on items I find less than stunning! What I did pick up were the two mineralized shadows from the Maleficent Collection, the "Slick Black" Greasepaint Stick, and "Truth & Light" Magically Cool Liquid Powder from the Dr. Facilier Collection.

The mineralized shadows in "My Dark Magic" and "She Who Dares" were the only two shadows I had to own. The glitter in these two shadows are the type that make you say, "ooohweee!!" LOL "My Dark Magic" reminded me a lot of "Young Punk", which was released last year with the first Greasepaint Sticks...

The "Slick Black" Greasepaint Stick was a must-have for me because whenever you do a smokey eye, you need a base that holds up and fights creasing throughout the day... Being that the greasepaint sticks are movable and blend-able until it sets, these are great options for creating a base for dark shadows.

The Magically Cool Liquid Powder boasts a 70% H2o content... which is why when it hits your skin, it delivers a burst of refreshment, kind of similar to the feeling you get when misting Fix+ across your skin. The powder itself is very light and fine. I only picked up "Truth & Light"... I actually purchased the last one at the Town Square location in Vegas. I'm thinking of picking up "Cajun" because this powder is just that cool... After applying my make-up, but before applying mascara or false lashes, I'll hit the highlight areas on my face with this powder. The reflective/shimmery properties aren't overpowering, so you could use it as an all-over if you wish...just don't expect this to take away any sheen or act as a heavier, setting powder. Also, make sure your brush is dry... when the MAC artist was showing me this powder, it was literally rolling up- not good when you're trying to sell a product! However, I had no problems when using it at home with a big, fluffy, DRY powder brush. Just be sure you don't leave this powder in your car after purchasing... store it in a cool place, if not, I was told this could melt... yikes!

Soooo... that was my MAC VV trip. Hope you've enjoyed it! I've included some pics of my FOTD created with "My Dark Magic", "Slick Black" Greasepaint Stick, and the "Truth & Light" Cooling Powder... YouTube video will follow, so make sure you're subbed to --> My YouTube Channel <--

 This is the look w/ an OCC Lip Tar mix of "Katricia", "Feathered", and "Clear"
It looked okay in the pics, but didn't turn out well for the vid... so I changed it to the lippie below...

This lippie was MAC "Magenta" Lip Liner, MUFE Rouge Artist Intense in #9, and MAC "Ban This" Lipglass. Other than that, everything else was the same... just different lighting. :)

On a Brush Hunt!

Ok my Glamouristas and Fexies... I need YOUR help! I've been searching, no, "hunting" for the goat-hair (or "capra") foundation makeup brush that Scott Barnes used in his recent "About Face" book.

It's not a circular head, rather it's more rectangular and looks more like a paint style brush. The bristles are a natural, creme color and it's supposed to be very, very soft. It's my understanding the brushes are cruelty-free due to using the "first cut" method... so the billy goats aren't harmed. Yay! :) LOL

Anyhow... I'm dying to try this brush because it's supposed to produce an absolute flawless application, so if any of my fab readers know where to pick this up, please post a response! Thanks so much for all of your help! :)

Blog Sale! MAC, Benefit, Bare Minerals, Lancome, Ulta, NYX!

So here's some of the items I'm kicking off the blog sale with... they all have been barely used, maybe swatched a few times, some items have never been used at all!

All I'm asking is that you don't try to haggle me on prices... my prices are very reasonable and I have scoped out other sale prices as well as ebay, so I do know what the fair going-prices are on these items. I will, however, consider slightly reduced pricing if you're buying more than one item...

If you're interested in purchasing, please comment the post or email me at: w/ subject line "Blog Sale"... Shipping will be $2 flat-rate Domestic, $5 International, so it doesn't matter how much you buy... even if shipping exceeds $2 for Domestic or $5 International, I'll pay the difference. Payments will be accepted through PayPal only, I will provide you with instructions once we agree on the sale. First to pay gets the item. Please let me know if you have any questions... Thanks! :)
