Most women dread the dimply patches of cellulite on their legs, stomach or arms… especially during the summer months when our skin is more exposed.

“genetically related, in that it’s due to gender, race, slow metabolism, distribution of fat, and circulatory insufficiency. There are also hormonal factors, such as estrogen levels, degrees of insulin, …
I am fair-skinned, blue-eyed and a blonde, which is about as far from emulating the Kim Kardashian look as you can get. Although my look suits me just fine, there are times when I am trying to keep up — not with the Kardashian clan — with Kim’s makeup looks.
How does Kim wear so much eye makeup and not seem to be in pain? Not a grimace, nothing watering, no redness… It appears that she does have talent after all!
It is no secret that I have the world’s most sensitive …

I have always been obsessed with the ‘50s and ‘60s glamour icons Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly…The list goes on and on. I never quite felt comfortable with bright red lips.
Since I’m not blonde, I didn’t quite like bright pinks either. Tomato reds, corals — that is where I found my comfort zone. When I discovered these glamour queens of old, I felt like I had acquired a different beauty look.
I’ve compiled a list of the ultimate glamazon-inspired lip shades! These shades range from the palest …
With names like Naked, Truth, Vain, Dare, Virgin and Vixen — how could one not want to try these newly launched lipglosses from vbeauté? I was so taken with founder, Julie Macklowe, that I reached out via to review her new Lip Spread Anti-Age Hydrating Lip Glosses ($28.00 each).
I started seeing ads for the brand in both Vogue and Allure Magazines, and was even more intrigued! The picture of her attending the 2013 Met Gala put me over the edge. She looked simply amazing! I had to know more about …

Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of visiting the first brick and mortar salon by Carol’s Daughter called MIRROR, located in Harlem, NY!
We’ve all heard about Carol’s Daughter (the #1 seller on HSN),well, founder Lisa Price (who in the ‘90s worked as a writer’s assistant on the legendary sitcom The Cosby Show) started this business in her Brooklyn kitchen mixing fragrances and creams.
Naming the line after her mother, Carol, Lisa launched a humble business, which turned into an empire as her collection spread via word of mouth like wildfire.
Gorgeous, glittery and dazzling are just a few words to describe the new Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadows ($20.00 each). Moondust is like no other shadow. Microfine bits of iridescent sparkle are infused with intense hues and lush 3-D metallics for an overall effect that is just glorious.
Each color has a really luxe, upscale vibe and a gorgeous diamond-like effect. As soon as they launched at Sephora, I noticed many of their cast members swatching these seven new über sparkly shades… and I wanted in!
Once again, a super-secret formula was created …

It gives you that “retro/pin-up” look. I used zero lip balm (wish I did) and my lips looked FLAWLESS! This lipstick will definitely have you pulling off notice-me-lips …
