Glorious, Long-Lasting Lip Color

Opening the tube of lipstick sent me into rapture, I had to sit down.  The shade reminded me of Hedy Lamarr – 1930’s -1940’s Vixen and Goddess.

Hedy Lamarr in her day was described as being the most beautiful woman in the world.  She had gorgeous dark hair, big eyes and she wore Red Lipstick. I remember seeing her for the first time on the big screen, she played Delilah in Cecil B DeMille’s Samson & Delilah.

I associated being beautiful with strong, independent women who wore Red Lipstick.

I couldn’t wait to try on the color, I paired Vixen with lip pencil in Truly Red, it instantly gave me that Je Ne Sais Qua that only a great red can give.

The color was lush and gorgeous, the texture was a velvet matte finish that kept my lips hydrated during afternoon coffee.

I’m a City Girl in Red Lipstick and I’m wearing Vixen by Youngblood.

Eyebrow Conditioner

Everyone who knows me, knows I over tweeze. I developed an eyebrow complex after my childhood playmates (Rudy, Renee, and Abel) refered to me as UniBrow.

I’ve basically remained eyebrow challenged through out my whole adult life, until now that I started testing RevitaBrow.

I’ve been faithfully applying RevitaBrow on my eyebrows every night for the past two weeks.  This is the best my eyebrows have looked since I can remember, my eyebrows no longer looked skimpy or shapeless.

RevitaBrow is an eyebrow conditioner that enhances your natural eyebrows, making them look darker, thicker and fuller. My eyebrows finally have some definition after all these years of trying to grow them out.

When RevitaBrow is applied nightly to a clean brow you will begin to see the appearance of healthier eyebrows in a matter of weeks.

Seaweed Peptide Serum

Seaweed Peptide Serum

I’m in love with the Seaweed Peptide serum, I’ve been using it as the core serum for my skin.  It works great alone or paired with other products.  The SeaWeed Peptide worked beautifully with my other skin care products, intensifying the benefits of using age appropriate skin care.

My skin absorbed the Seaweed Peptide, keeping my skin hydrated and nourished throughout the day. Upon further inspection of my skin I could see that the Seaweed Peptide also worked as a healer, calming my skin from inflammation.

This magical serum stimulates collagen and increases elastin.  The Seaweed used in the Peptide Serum is the type that can absorb 10,000 times the amount of vitamins found in the ocean, it’s pure and natural.  It’s concentrated, so that only a few drops are needed for a more youthful and radiant complexion.

Veronica Barton-Schwartz is a leading skin care expert in Southern California, creating a unique skin care line that incorporates the best of European skin care and the latest American biotechnology.

Educating myself about proper skin care has taught me that you can transform your skin and maintain healthy skin by using age appropriate skin care, having a face lift these days is unnecessary.

Veronica Skin & Body Care Center offers various services that involve non-surgical procedures.  Veronicas mission is to educate men and women alike to age gracefully and to live a healthier lifestyle.  Everyone can have healthy glowing skin.

And for those of us that can’t kick the Botox habit, the use of the Seaweed Peptide Serum extends the length of Botox – it’s an amazing serum that enhances the skin from within.

~ Mineral Radiance Moisture Tint ~

Mineral Radiance Moisture Tint


I’ve been wearing makeup since I was fifteen years old, I remember my cousin Rita telling me not to wear makeup, that once I started there would be no going back.  She was right.  My goal now is to give my skin the opportunity to breathe, to heal from adult acne and other skin related issues.   

I use facial scrubs and mask on a regular basis, but I found myself reluctant to use any of the makeup products I already owned.  I hated the idea of covering my skin with products that did not allow my skin to breathe or heal.   

I researched and discovered Mineral Radiance Moisture Tint by Youngblood Cosmetics.   

The Moisture tint provided excellent coverage, it looked natural and evened out my skin tone.  The texture was light-weight, keeping my skin hydrated and moisturized.  I was more than pleased with the results.   

Pauline Youngblood Soli is the founder of Youngblood Cosmetics, and she’s a licensed Medical Aesthetician who worked closely with the best dermatologists and plastic surgeons in the business to develop a cosmetic that provided coverage for traumatized skin – while allowing the skin to breath and heal.

Mineral makeup is healthier for the skin, it’s made from natural pigments in the earth, it lacks the ingredients that can cause skin irritations and lowers the risk of allergic reactions.

Hair by RevitaLash

Women suffer from hair loss for various reasons, usually it’s an overall thinning that’s caused by age, stress and pregnancy. Our bodies change as we get older, and vitamins are essential.

I read that women need to take biotin and iron supplements, which I started doing.  I’ve seen improvements since I began taking vitamins, but my hair is still thin and fine.  I’m vain about my hair and I’ll try any piece of hair product that holds the promise of volumizing my hair.

Hair by ReviatLash dropped into my lap and it’s the best volumizing hair product I’ve tried so far.  I noticed within six days that my hair was thicker and fuller.  It’s important to be consistent and use Hair by RevitaLash daily for maximum results.

Hair by RevitaLash is a hair conditioner that behaves like a treatment.  It is a cosmetic breakthrough that fortifies and conditions the hair; enhancing the appearance of fine, thin and fragile hair.  Transforming your hair in a matter of weeks.

I recently started using Hair by RevitaLash as a spot treatment in the areas that need it.  I’m very happy with the results, my hair looks healthy and happy.  I’ve tried countless hair products trying to achieve what Hair by RevitaLash achieved in six days.

Natural Nail Growth Treatment

I started using GoNails nail growth treatment last week, and it’s working!  My nails are longer, stronger and healthier.

My hands looked like I just had a manicure.  GoNails can be applied over polish and it’s great for toes and fingers alike.

GoNails is an all natural cream with healing properties.  It absorbed easily into my nails, improving the nail texture and healing my cuticles.  GoNails gets to the root of the problem by nourishing the nail from within.  The formula repairs damaged nails and strengthens all nail types.

One of my favorite ingredients in GoNails is the Anti-bacterial tea tree oil that helps correct discoloration, great if you’re like me and like to wear dark polish.
