Doucce Cosmetics at Gloss48!

Press SampleI love when I have the opportunity to introduce you to a new brand that is truly incredible! Doucce is an indie brand that’s being featured on Gloss48 this week!

I love how Gloss48 says “get your head out of the gutter”.  The brand name is pronounced Doo-say, so let’s get that straight!  The product line was born in the fine city of New York, and I was happy to see a lot of “made in the USA” stamped onto these gleaming cosmetic cases.  If you’re already in love with what you see, Click HERE to visit Gloss48 to view these steals!  If you want to see gorgeous photos, swatches, and reviews of these products keep reading!

Venox Serum Review, Beverly Hills MD

Press SampleI recently had the opportunity to sample Venox Anti-Aging Serum from Beverly Hills MD Cosmeceuticals.  I am such a skin care snob, and haven’t sampled much these days for you, my dear readers.  It’s just that I’ve had some really bad experiences in my eight years of beauty blogging with skin care testing. For the past year my skin has been so happy and clear, I’ve been afraid to mess with it! [Read more…]

Vincent Longo Metagloss Review

Press SampleVincent Longo recently introduced Metagloss Lip Glosses, a metallic splash of lip color for Fall and Winter 2014.  I’ve reviewed metallic lip gloss on Raging Rouge in the past, some of which have been overwhelmingly metallic like a new car.  The Metagloss formula is a bit more subtle, without losing that metallic edge that is so wildly popular right now.  [Read more…]

Jolen Creme Bleach Review, Go Confidently!

Jolen Creme Bleach Review

Jolen Creme Bleach Review

Press Sample, SponsoredI’m pretty sure you’re familiar with the product I’m writing about today.

Jolen!  The bleach you used a million times to lighten your upper lip hair?  Remember?  Oh Jolen and I go way, WAY back.  I remember hanging around my sorority house wearing the Jolen bleach mustache, watching the clock, looking forward to embarrassing dark facial hair to lighten like magic.  My sorority sisters did the same!  One of my sisters even used the bleach on her arm hair!

I had friends who used Jolen in high school, but I didn’t take the plunge myself until college.  One of my very close friends swore by Jolen.  She taught me how to use it, and bleaching our facial hair became routine for us.  At the time, home waxing options were really quite pitiful.  Remember those wax strips that promised hair removal and only delivered pain?  Ugh!

NARS Obscura

Press Sample

I’m pretty sure that Francois NARS does not care what I think of his brand. Just in case, I want to be sure to state it for the record, NARS is simply amazing. I know, you choke when you see the prices. It’s justifiable, as NARS is on the expensive side. Let me just make it clear that with this brand, you get what you pay for ten times over.

NARS Nail Polish is a perfect example, worth every cent of the steep price. For YEARS, department store beauty brands sold sub-par polish compared to salon grade formulas. The department store polish of yesteryear was all pomp and packaging. In the past few years, this has changed. Most prestige brands now have a fabulous line of nail lacquer that easily keeps pace with top of the line nail lacquers. But NARS? NARS has surpassed them.

NARS nail polish is so incredibly color rich, you really could get by with only one coat. In addition, the formula is chip-resistant, applies smoothly and evenly. I get excellent wear time from NARS! [Read more…]
