NARS x Erdem

OMG coming home from Mexico to this beautiful box featuring the new Erdem for NARS Strange Flower collection! I get a lot of mailers, but it’s rare one actually makes me stop, marvel and then literally drool. It’s almost too pretty to touch. Almost. 

 

The limited edition NARS x Erdem collection features two Eyeshadow Palettes ($49 each), the Lip Powder Palette ($49), 2  blushes ($30 each), 6 lipsticks ($28 each), 1 Multi-use Highlighting pencil ($29) and Mattifying Blotting Paper pack ($30). All are packaged in sophisticated soft-touch packaging adorned with one of three original floral prints Erdem created for the collaboration.

The shade range is insane! Usually with collections I find a few colors I like and the rest giveaway, but mine, all mine! Every piece in this collection, is perfection. I started with the Night Garden Eyeshadow Palette.

Talking with Self.com: How to Organize Your Beauty Closet

how to organize your beauty closetOrganizing my beauty closet is my greatest struggle. Self.com recently reached out and did a great article featuring my tips and some other top beauty bloggers. After being in the beauty industry for 15years and beauty blogging for 10years you can’t even imagine the amount of boxes of products I get. Actually if you watch my unboxings you probably can… While managing your in take is the best way to stay organized (I have a beauty charity where you can donate unused beauty products to shelters!), for me I have to keep most of the new products since I judge a lot of the industry beauty awards and do trend reports for a lot of the beauty shows so finding organizing solutions are a top priority for me.

Like most, I was attracted to pretty organizers to started. I tried so many cute ‘Acrylic Makeup storage organizers‘ (search the term on Amazon, a ton of option come up) but I quickly over-cluttered them all and needed a bigger solution. While this will work for a normal person’s makeup stash or on top of your desk or cabinet, a true beauty hoarder needs to go bigger.

So last year I switched to the holy grail of beauty organizers, the Ikea Alex Drawer. There are a few different styles but I have 5 sets of the classic 9 drawer style in my hallway (and a few by my desk) and I organize them using post-ids what’s in each since I’m always switching in and out products I receive and testing.

What Microneedling with Radiofrequency looks like!

Microneedling, the popular skincare treatment that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles to stimulate collagen production just got an upgrade! And it involves radio-frequency.  After three treatments my skin was so smooth that makeup just glided over my skin. I saw much stronger results then regular microneedling which made it all worth it in the end but it is a process.

I recently visited JUVA Skin & Laser Center to meet with Dr. Katz and test out the New Intensif Handpiece by EndyMed, which is an FDA cleared device that takes microneedling to the next level. It offers microneedling coupled with radio-frequency for amazing skin tightening effects and works on a deeper level. The unique Intensif technology allows for 3 times the heating volume per pulse. This heat sends a signal to the dermis for skin remodeling — think of it like sending energy down to the skin to wake it up and work harder. Watch the procedure in the video above!
