I recently had the opportunity to stop by WINK Eyelash in New York City. If you remember, I met Su Thomas, one of the owners of WINK during Fashion Week at the NYFW Blogger Mixer. This place is amazing! And I think you will agree when you see the before and after pictures that they did an incredible job on my lashes!
Check them out at www.winkeyelash.com. They are located at 128 W. 36th Street in New York City. And be sure to let them know you heard about them here!
As we say hello to fall and cooler weather wind and dry air can take a toll on your lips. I have tried many lip balms, from $25 a stick at the department store to 99-cent versions from the drugstore. I had also used the Burt’s Bees Beeswax lip balm, but I found the peppermint oil a bit strong. So I thought I’d give their Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil a try. And boy I’m glad I did! I love this lip balm and I haven’t had chapped lips since using it. I love the light fruity taste and the notion of the pomegranate oil working its antioxidant magic to keep my lips smooth is a plus. There has been alot of buzz around pomegranate and its health benefits. The juice, extract and oil from the seed of the fruit, are rich in anti-oxidants that fight free radicals. Pomegranate oil contains punicic acid that is an Omega 5 conjugated fatty acid used to replenish moisture.
For months now I have been receiving pitches from beauty brands and PR firms far and wide about which beauty products will be donating some or all of their proceeds to breast cancer charities. Most beauty magazines and beauty blogs have already started posting about them. And sure last year I went to Estee Lauder’s office in Manhattan for the BCRF kickoff (and it was a great experience.) And I was a part of Total Beauty’s “Total Beauty Total Cure” last year as well. Here locally, I’ve even organized vendor fairs to raise money for the American Cancer Society (and proud to have raised $3K for them. Although I have since learned they are rated F in Charity Watch.)
But this year I thought to myself…if I want to support a breast cancer charity and research, why do I have to buy lipstick to do so?
