Said the Sephora Skin Care Consultant to the Beauty Bug…

Friday, November 10th, 2006

Ever since I started this blog, I’ve made it a point to visit Sephora more frequently. It wasn’t as if I ever needed an excuse to go before, but it’s great now because whenever I go I get some good content and meet some nice, resourceful people. I’ve been having sort of a writers block [...]

Origins Youthtopia

Friday, November 10th, 2006

I’ve seen so much marketing for the new Origins Youthtopia (skin firming cream with Rhodiola) that while at the mall the other day I went over the ask for sample. The story behind this product is that it contains special ingredients from a very far away magical place. Ok, so maybe not magical, but half [...]

Holiday Packaging at its’ Best

Thursday, November 9th, 2006

Every holiday season Sephora lines its’ shelves with Holiday palettes and gift sets and every makeup and skin care junkie gets excited….and overwhelmed – especially if you are on a budget and can’t buy every single one. So, brands must do their best to differentiate themselves with either pricing, packaging, or value. Here my picks [...]

(Ken) Paves Professional Shampoo and Conditioner

Wednesday, November 8th, 2006

Stylist to the stars (best known for Jessica Simpson and Eva Longoria), Ken Paves, has just released his new line of hair care. Before I get into the review, I just wanted to comment on the marketing, or lack there of, behind this product line. I just happen to come across it while reading an [...]

Sephora Beauty Advisor to the Rescue

Tuesday, November 7th, 2006

If you’re like me you want to try every skin care brand there is. Sometimes you buy a full sized product, while other times you get a sample. There’s 2 potential problems to this scenario. Number one – you never ever finish off an entire bottle of tube of anything (that’s not really a problem [...]

Beauty Buyable 2007

Tuesday, November 7th, 2006

I bought the Beauty Buyable after reading about it on All About the Pretty. As she points out, it’s really a cute idea, and I’m surprised this is the first one of its’ kind. First it was the Test Tube, and now this – I’m predicting that sampling programs will be popping up all over [...]

Review: Jonathan Weightless Smooth No-Frizz Shampoo & Conditioner

Monday, November 6th, 2006

I was in Sephora this past weekend talking to the skin consultant about my experience with Jonathan Product. I told her that a friend had bought me the Serious Volume Shampoo and Conditioner, and that I really didn’t like it because I found the shampoo thick and hard to spread. She suggested that I try [...]

Color Design by Lancome

Monday, November 6th, 2006

Even though I would never wear that purple lipstick, isn’t it pretty? Lancome has just introduced their new Color Design Collection and they are just so pretty to look at. This is the sort of line that I would expect them to release in the spring because of all the warm colors they are featuring. [...]
