Day and Night with LORAC “The Private Affair” Collection

50 Summer Beauty Challenge Day and Night with LORAC The Private Affair Collection

Recently, several beauty bloggers, and myself, were given one of two challenges – to create two eye looks or show off some dupes on a limited budget. To do this we were provided with $50 credit to Sephora, Ulta or drugstore.com. I decided I would show two looks, so I took my Sephora giftcard and off I went shopping, with the help of some Sephora coupon codes, as it is easy to go thru $50 quickly there.

The best way to get the most value for your money is to get a complete collection that includes a shadow palette – in this case, I snatched up the LORAC Private Affair collection. It includes eyeshadow primer, a 6-color eyeshadow palette, with a range of shades from light to dark wine, a cream eyeliner in “Plum” and a volumizing mascara.

The great thing about this palette is that it gives you the ability to have a daytime look with the lighter, neutral shades, and a nighttime look with the darker shades, all from this one palette. And with the eye primer, it will make the light shades appear brighter and your night look will be richer and last longer. The gel liner is silky smooth and is easily applied to really outline your eyes for the night. The mascara does a great job of opening up the eyes for the day and really enhancing that smokey eye for the night with its big volumizing formula.

*Giveaway* New Beauty, New You with QVC and StriVectin

Today, January 18th, QVC is having a 25-hour event to help you start of the new year with new products. Every hour they are going to be debuting a new product, from brands like Josie Maran, WEN by Chaz Dean, philosophy, Algenist and more. (*Trust me, my DVR is already set for the shows I will miss while I am at work).

 *Giveaway* New Beauty, New You with QVC and StriVectin And, since you guys know I am always on the look out for new skin care, especially from brands I already like, you won’t be surprised to hear that I’m looking forward to hearing more about the StriVectin-SH Advanced Overnight Resurfacing Serum that is launching during “Friday Night Beauty” (*which I watch live every week!). I’m already a fan of the StriVectin-SD Power Serum for Wrinkles, so I’m expecting great things from this exfoliator. It’s an overnight treatment of their NIA-114™ molecule that works from the inside, and Prickly Pear and Willowbark plant extracts that work on the surface to loosen the interlocking of cells, which help boost our skin’s natural exfoliating enzymes. It will be sold for the QVC Exclusive Feature Price of $64.98 for a 1oz bottle (retail value $79).

I’ve also have a chance to let one of my US readers try this out for FREE by giving away a bottle for them to try, too! Just comment on this post telling me if you exfoliate on the regular and if so, with what and ‘Like’ the OGB FB page (*and confirming on the Rafflecopter widget!) to enter! Good luck!

*Giveaway* DermOrganic Haircare Line

 *Giveaway* DermOrganic Haircare Line

You would think that after all this time, and as someone that colors my hair on the regular, that I would already be on the sulfate-free train. But, I’m not. I still like to try the latest and greatest hair care lines, in my never ending quest to find something that controls my frizz and makes my color last longer. So, when I had a chance to try an organic, sulfate-free line called DermOrganic, I was game to try it – especially when I found out it was Argan oil based. I love hair oils, so, I was in!

I have been using the line for the last few weeks – the shampoo, conditioner, masque (once a week) and the leave-in treatment oil have been my routine. Now, I don’t use heat tools very often, but I have used the Spray Therapy, the one time I straightened my hair for a party. Anyway, since I don’t use heat on my hair, that means that I air dry my hair a lot. And, since the weather has been so cold, it usually frizzes out like a mid-Roseanne Rosannadanna do. Since I have been using this line, I can honestly say that my hair has been drying more silky and flat, (*but not in a lack of body way) and that leave-in treatment smells *ridiculously* good. There may be something to this sulfate-free stuff after all, because I am not certain that I’m ready to go back to any other line any time soon.

The only downside I have with this line, which can be worked around for sure, is that I am not a big fan of the pump dispensers on the shampoo/conditioner/masque bottles. The product is so thick and rich, that it doesn’t always pump out. Luckily, the bottles are flexible, so I just unscrew the top and squeeze some out. Easy peasy.

Anyway, I want to give you a chance to try this line for yourself, so I am giving away a bottle of shampoo, conditioner, masque and a leave-in spray to one of you lucky readers (*in the US, unfortch). I just want you to tell me in the comments if you are sulfate-free, or if you choose your haircare for a different reason, and to go like the OGB FB page. Make sure to enter in the Rafflecopter box below after you take care of those things. Good luck!

*Partnered Post* Meeting Imedeen® (and a giveaway, too)

As you know that I try a whole slew of different types of skincare to make sure that I keep this 40+yo face looking as young as I can. (*I may not want to ever BE in my 20′s again, but I can’t help but want to have skin like that again, for sure.). Pretty much all of these are topical treatments that work on the top layer, the epidermis layer, of my skin.

So, when I heard about an anti-aging supplement that is specialized for women 40 years or older, that works down in the dermal layer of the skin, I knew I needed to know more. I headed over to the website for Imedeen® and took the “Lifestyle Skin Assessment”. After a few questions about how I go about life, it decided that the Imedeen Time Perfection® skin care supplements would be best for me.
