Older Girl Beauty

I’ve got a Black Friday seeeecret….

It’s a Super Secret Black Friday Deal from Avenue for all you plus sized lovelies. I really don’t know what the true deal is, but here is a coupon to take in with you, if you are braving the stores early Friday morning this year. They say it will be worth it, but I would check out the website on Thanksgiving for the details first.

"Confirmation I Kick Ass"

Just wanted to let you Lovelies know that I have been picked up by Alltop.com and am now listed in their Beauty Topic section. This is so great to be on the same page as so many great beauty bloggers, and I just wanted to take just a moment and brag.

*taps foot a few times

Right. That’s that. We’re done here. Move along now, but come back and see me again soon. icon smile "Confirmation I Kick Ass"

Just the 10 of us

Okay, really, when did I become the girl with 10 lipglosses/lip balms/lipsticks in her purse? Seriously, this is what I have in my purse RIGHT NOW:

C.O. Bigelow Cinnamint Mentha Lip Shine (Remind me to tell you about going to the original apothecary)
SoftLips Cherry Lip Protectant (mmm…cherry)
Philosophy Green Apple Flavored Lip Shine (OMG, seriously, I eat this stuff off my lips)
Hershey’s Almond Lip Balm (I have *such* a soft spot for Almond flavor/scent)
Blistex Lip Infusion Soothing Splash (this is like putting water on your lips)
Clinique Black Honey Almost Lipstick (my first “fancy” (upscale) lipstick)
MAC Petting Pink Tinted Lip Conditioner (my current fave!)
CoverGirl Mauve Shine 490 TruShine LipColor (pretty color – mauve looks good on me)
CoverGirl Petal Shine 425 TruShine LipColor (so light, but goes well over others)
Avon Sparkling Mauve Ultra Color Rich Lipstick (got this after I wanted to try it on – mauve – again)
bareMinerals Brillance Lip Gloss (From the Champagne Diamond collection on QVC)(see?)

Okay, maybe I just don’t want to take any of these out, because it seems like they are all mostly different, but still….wow.

Downward facing toes

Can I tell you how long I have been lemming some Yoga Toes? I don’t even wear heels very much (ie. AT ALL) but that doesn’t stop these heel spur ridden feet from aching at the end of the day. But, I just couldn’t make the $50 leap for them. Thankfully, the makers of my blessed PedEgg decided that I needed a cheaper alternative. Enter my new PamperedToes:

pamperedtoes Downward facing toes
I slide these things on my toes (without lotion) after I settle in for the evening and leave them on for 10-15min, wiggling my toes every once in a while. And, man, these things make my feet good, but then, I like to stretch my feet out by spreading my toes out like fingers anyway, this just lets me do that longer and easier. These are made of a soft gel that is very flexible and are not uncomfortable to wear, but if you wear them for too long, your feet can get a bit fatigued.

It was also very cool to see that I am not the only one who appreciates a good toe stretch. I was reading about Sandy Linter over at BeautyBlitz and it looks like her Yoga Toes are her most atypical beauty secret. If I can get the same results, but for less money, it makes me feel like we have so much in common, aside from the fact that she is a world reknowned makeup artist and I am, well, not.

I found these at a local CVS, but it wasn’t my usual one, as not all of them have these yet. It was over in their “Seen on TV” section, but I have seen it up front in the new items area when you walk in. They were only $9.99 and worth it for me. Give’em a shot and let me know what you think.

Gettin’ my fix…

beautyfix Gettin my fix.....my Beautyfix, that is.

Beautyfix is a new quarterly beauty product sampling program. It is $50 (plus $6.95 shipping) and the value far exceeds that price. For example the first kit came with 5 full size products and 4 generous sized samples, a $25 gift cert to glow.com, all packed up in a black zippered cloth train case – all total an over $400 value. These are the products that were in the first kit:
Amarté Aqua Veil Pure Hydration Serum – Full Size
Amarté Natural Wonder Cream – Deluxe Sample Size
Jane Iredale Shimmer Powder in Rose Gold – Full Size
Kronos Phyx Overnight Repair Masque – Full Size
M LAB Anti-Aging Treatment Cream – Deluxe Sample Size .5 oz.
PCA SKIN pHaze 9 Purifying Mask – Full Size
PerriconeMD Firming Neck Therapy – Deluxe Sample Size
Redpoint Noc-Out Cover-Up Compact – Full Size
Sensa Weight Loss System – 15 Day Supply
I haven’t tried everything yet, but have tried some of the products and will post my opinions as I go along, while working my way thru all of them. I do have to say that I was impressed with the selection that was in the kit, but there seemed to be some early confusion on what was going to be full size up until the kits shipped, ie, the Amarté Natural Wonder Cream was supposed to be full size and the Perricone MD was shown as full size in the pictures. But, even with those, the samples were still nice sized to try out. Another thing I am wondering is if each kit will come in the train case, because I am thinking that I don’t know if I will have a use for 4 cloth cases a year – maybe that could be made an option for returning quarterly members?
