    2. All-in-One Polish   

    Now you can save money with the Sally Hansen Complete Salon nail polish. Think of this product as one that contains five products all in one small bottle. This polish contains keratin and amino growth treatment (makes nail stronger), a filling base coat, a strengthener, color, and quick dry top coat.

    3. Self-Adjusting Lipstick

    Are you tired of buying lipstick that seem right for your skin complexion but after a while, it seems different?  Are you tired of trying to figure out which color suits your skin complexion best?  Well, the Self-Adjusting Lipstick from DuWop Personal Color Changing Lipstick is a product which reacts to pH and heat, so they change color according to body chemistry. Within 5 minutes of application, this lipstick will change into a color that best fits you. Cool huh??

    4. Universal Blush

    Have you ever wondered how it would be if there were one piece of makeup that would work on anyone, no matter their skin complexion. Well, I am sure many of you were not aware of the Stila Custom Color blush. This blush is bright pink, it is translucent and it blends in with any skin tone. The key to this product is that its base is not titanium dioxide, so there is no chalkiness making it easier to work for any skin complexion. This blush can be purchased for $20.00 - not a bad price for a Universal blush, right?? For further information on this universal blush, visit: www.

    5.  Eye Shadow That Lasts 24 Hours

    For all the women who hate to wear makeup because it never lasts or for those who are annoyed at constantly having to retouch their makeup- there is a new 24 hour product launching in October. The new Armani Metallic eyeshadow is made from densely pigmented powder-gel hybrid combined with shimmer and translucent emollients to lock the color in place. This Giorgio Armani can be purchased for $32.00. To view more inforation and colors for this product, visit:

    6. One Step Makeup

    For those who are short with time, buying products like the One Step Makeup from Stila Cosmetics is not only a time-saver but also, allows you to save a few bucks. This Primer, foundation, concealer and powder can be applied all in one easy step! For more information, visit:

    MONEY SAVER TIP 1: There are always deals you can find which will help you save a few dollars on makeup products. For instance, search for online discount coupons. Although many of us may already be aware of this, many of us do not take the time to search. Saving a few bucks makes a difference. Think of it as being able to buy more and more and more makeup (smile). A few websites for coupons are:

    MONEY SAVER TIP 2: For those who feel that applying makeup is time consuming and/or have no patience to apply makeup -  begin searching for products which will help you save time and money. For instance, buy products that can accomplish more than one function in one shot. Also, for products you have never purchased before, try reading reviews about them. I know this sounds like common sense but you will be surprised. Many of us usually do not take the time to read and become disappointed with the product. Remember, this small detail can help you money.

    Search for online deals. Check for websites which can provide you with high end makeup products for a reasonable price or search for makeup brands which are not exactly high end brands but get the job done just right.

    New Makeup Products to try out......

    Dear Reader,

    I want to share with all of you a fun experience I had a few days ago. I attended a business/social networking event from work where I had the pleasure to meet Vera Moore - creator of Vera Moore Cosmetics. This is a cosmetic and skin care line currently being presented at many of Duane Reade's locations in New York. After meeting her, I made it my business to purchase a few of her products to try out, such as: 2 makeup brushes, 1 lipstick, 1 lip gloss & blush. I also purchased a few skin care products, which so far have made my skin feel and look FAB!

    I recommend it!

    One more thing, Vera Moore also offers a great variety of products for dark toned women and products for men. 

    Ladies........Try it! Try it! Try it!  ; -)

    6 STEPS TO FOLLOW EVERYDAY IN ORDER TO KEEP A HEALTHY LOOK (Inspired by an article from SELF magazine)

    1. Recharge your body and get your beauty sleep. I am sure you have always heard about the 8 hour sleep rule. Well, it is true and very important for your health and beauty. I know for many, sleeping has become a luxury. I truly feel that many of us sleep but not necessarily rest. It is important to put aside all of our worries before going to bed in order to have a restful night. Sleep is not only healthy for the mind but also for the body.

      Remember: sleep helps fight lines..!  ;-)

    1. Breaking a sweat - When you workout you are letting go of stress, which is beneficial to your body. When you work out, you are letting go of fluid in the body. For instance: when you break a sweat, at least for 20 minutes, you’re helping reduce the puffiness under the eye area. We all know, bags under our eyes are not a sexy/attractive look. Besides, it gives an unhealthy appearance.    

    1. Focus on treating your face with the right products. Stay away from using regular body soap to wash your face, which will only create dryness to the skin. I prefer to use the Neutrogena Deep clean Facial Cleanser (Normal to dry skin); this product is great for my skin, leaving it smooth and refreshed. 

    Photo from:

    There is also the Johnson & Johnson Purpose Gentle Cleansing Wash. This product can be purchased at any drug store for $6.00. 

    Photo from: Johnson&

    REMEMBER: always wash off the makeup and dust/dirt that accumulates on your skin throughout the day. 

    1. Protect your skin from the sun – This is a DEFINITE. You should always use sunscreen at all times. You should apply sunscreen in the winter and in the summer. In the winter you can purchase the SPF 15 and during the summer any SPF that is 50 or 50+ - that should do the trick.
    2. Renew skin cells - aside from protecting your skin from the sun, purchase an exfoliator which will remove dead skin cells. Try to find one which contains retinoids, the RX version of vitamin A which helps increase skin collagen and helps reduce fine lines.  

    To browse through different brands of moisturizer, visit or click on link below:

    1. Last but not least, ALWAYS MOISTURIZE. It is very important to keep your skin moisturized in the mornings and at night. If you suffer from acne try using an OIL-FREE gel or a lotion that will moisturize but will not clog pores.

    Suggestion for Oil-free product: Clearskin® Pore Penetrating Gel Cleanser from AVON

    I prefer to use AVON products because they are great in quality and not expensive. Visit or click on the link below to browse through their Skincare products:

    Ladies, I hope these tips will follow you on your daily routine. 


    Until next time......

    Top 10 Must Haves

    Dear Reader,

    Have you ever needed something so bad that you wished it was at arms reach? Well, there are a few things women should always keep with them at all times. 

    The 10 Must-Haves women should carry with them at all times are:  

    1. The be-WHOLESOME Health & Beauty Vitapack: this pack contains multivitamins to keep you healthy, strong and beautiful. You can purchase this product at any GNC. It’s important to have vitamins you are able to carry around for the sake of your convenience and time
    2. On-the-go brush (Colgate Wisp Plus Whitening brushes) – these are great to help you keep a clean smile, while on the go.
    3. On-the-go sunscreen wipes - Supergoop SPF 30 Sunscreen wipes with Zinc:
    4. Moisturizing lip balm with SPF (NIVEA - A Kiss of protection SPF 30 Lip Care) – can be purchased at any drug store. You can also try the NARS Pure Sheer SPF Lip Treatment. This product is one of my favorites - it will not only provide your lips with sheer but also some tint as well as with the right sun
    5. Avoid carrying around your bottle of perfume and try something of less weight and hard to break. Try the Pacifica Solid Perfume in Malibu Lemon Blossom -OR- try the cooling Body Mist from Bath & Body Works. I prefer the Midnight Pomegranate priced for $3.00
    6. Sanitizer or any antibacterial hand lotion - I recommend the one from Bath & Body Works HandBac AntiBacterial Hand Lotion in Sea Island cotton. Its aroma is soothing and great for this hot weather.
    7. Deodorant (travel size)
    8. Cosmetic bag. You should only carry around the makeup you use the most and for any occasion. 
    9. Travel Size hair products ( frizz control, sine serum, hair gel, hair spray or hair mousse). For those interested in purchasing salon quality and name brand products in travel size, check out this link: 
    10. Try your best to keep an extra swimwear with you - leave it at work or in your car. You never know which friend can invite you over to their pool, it happened to me a few days ago and of course I was NOT prepared.With this crazy HOT weather you might just find yourself jumping into a pool whenever the opportunity comes along- I know I would.  ;-)

    Ladies, always be be ready because you never know what the day holds for you. 

    Until next time.........

    I know many of you may think that heading out to the gym or out for a run is not a reason to look in Style. Well, for those who believe that is true, they are WRONG. we should ALWAYS look AMAZING at all times. I am not saying, go crazy thinking about what to wear and how your makeup should look for your workout. I am only suggesting to wear something that is in Style for two reasons:

    1).   FAB workout clothes will motivate you to workout

    2).   You never know who you might run into (ex-boyfriend, ex-boyfriend girlfriend or an old friend)

    Check out these stylish sneakers from Reebok:

    Best Deodorant for Whitening Dark Underarms

    Dear reader,

    Today in New York City the weather reached above 103 F -this type of weather is perfect to show off as much skin as desired. However, we must make sure to look great in whatever clothes we wear. For instance, as I was traveling on the bus this afternoon, I noticed an attractive young lady who was nicely dressed but had one problem which took away from her attractiveness. I realized her underarms were dark - which is NOT too appealing to the eye.

    Ladies....we must notice these small details on our bodies and stay on top of them. I searched for a few products that can help lighten dark underarms and came across the DERMAdoctor Total NonScents deodorant. This product contains Aluminum Zirconium Tetrachlorohydrex Glycine which is designated to reduce the sweating and lighten your skin.
