I love a beauty bargain, and I would normally not buy lip glosses but these were such a bargain that I had to buy two. I was intoxicated by their fragrance, they reminded me of the Dolly Madison Coconut Cakes of my childhood.
N.Y.C cosmetics offers us the opportunity to buy cosmetics more frequently and to try new looks with minimal risk. The colors and formulations are fashionable and wearable. Plus I like anything that reminds me of candy! For that Liquid Lip Shine, try New York Color.
Every City Girl knows she needs duplicate items in her makeup wardrobe. I carry one concealer in my makeup bag and have one at home. I’m of the school of thought that the makeup I put on in the morning comes with me on my daily journey, and in the event I forget my makeup bag I have spares at home.
I love this Ultimate Concealer from Youngblood Cosmetics, the formula was rich and creamy. I was able to adjust the color, starting off with light coverage and adding more to cover my recent beauty mishaps.
My skin looked silky and natural, the light-reflecting minerals aided my skin in looking smoother and kept attention away from my flaws. The Ultimate Concealer comes in 3 color families and 5 natural finishes.
This is one of my favorite books of all time. It mentions every woman I’ve ever inspired to be like. I’ve been in love with Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Coco Chanel, Diana Vreeland, MillicentRogers, Slim Keith, Babe Paley, Gloria Guinness, C.Z Guest, Elsie De Wolf, Rita Lydig, Mona Bismarck, and the Duchess of Windsor since I can remember.
All amazing women who transformed and created the fine art of living well. They all understood that style was not just about wearing expensive pieces, but on wearing what was best for you, it was all about the cut, the texture and elegance. Another thing they all had in common, they knew how to wear Red Lipstick.
I normally don’t wear lip gloss, but on occasion I find a gorgeous color that grabs my attention.

I loved washing my face with the Fresh Mint Wash, the lather foamed releasing the smell of fresh mint, it was soothing and relaxing.
The Micro-Dermabrasion Treatment was non abrasive revealing smoother skin and the cleansing Mint&Carrot Mask felt luxurious, the experience was a Red Carpet Facial, at home.
I usually spend five minutes removing masks and scrubs from my skin, I loved how the warm water instantly removed the product from my skin, completely melting it off, leaving my skin fresh and clean.
This Red Carpet Facial is truly a treat, it is one of Malibu’s best kept secrets, it’s been a cult favorite for the past 30 years. Malibu Facial in a Bag is basic skincare that shrinks pores revealing smoother and softer skin.
Fresh Mint Wash – Instantly softens tap water, leaving your skin like you just had a professional facial!
Micro-Dermabrasion Treatment – gently exfoliates the skin, minimizing fine lines, wrinkles and pores. Stimulating the production of new and healthy skin. I’m ready for my close up!
Mint&Carrot Mask– A refining facial mask that tightens pores, refines skin texture and calms irritations. The carrot oil provides nourishment, leaving your skin prepped for the red carpet! P.S Thelonger you leave the mask on, the more it removes dead surface skin!!! I’m in love!
I normally don’t believe in toners, but the Cucumber Toner soothed and calmed my skin irritations, I recently had a few beauty mishaps, I tend to not always follow directions and found this toner soothing for my current sensitive skin.
Once my facial was complete I applied the Azulene Cream, it’s a protective cream that prevents inflammation, pimples, blackheads and whiteheads, promoting clear skin.
Since I started my beauty blog I’ve been compelled to wear Red Lipstick every time I leave the house. On this particular occasion I was attending a baby shower in the early afternoon. I knew Red Lipstick was not really appropriate, especially outside of the city.
This City Girl was in a quandary, I sat there in front of my makeup mirror contemplating another lipstick color. I opened the tube of JUST PINK by Youngblood and fell in love!
It was the perfect shade of pinky beige with tiny bits of sparkle, I paired it with Lip Pencil in POUT. It was the perfect color combination, and very appropriate for a baby shower in the early afternoon, outside of the city.

I couldn’t wait to test Lumixyl Topical Brightening System by EnvyMedical. It was developed by dermatological researchers at Stanford University. It’s a non-toxic, non-irritating synthetic peptide technology that improves the appearance of unwanted discoloration i.e sun spots, age spots, and uneven skin tone.
I saw the results within my first application, even with my beauty mishap, I could see the improvement in my overall skin tone. My skin was more even, and the stubborn hyperpigmentation spots were less noticable. I love this product!
