Sally Hansen Reformulated Miracle Gel Top Coat and Shades

These days, bigger is better when it comes to beauty. Following the major success of the first Miracle Gel launch, Sally Hansen has done it again, developing  the new & improved volumizing Miracle Gel Top Coat – adding to the award-winning Sally Hansen Miracle Gel collection: the most buzzed about at-home nail system and the closest thing to a salon gel manicure at home.

When partnered with the Miracle Gel shades, Miracle Gel Top Coat volumizes as it protects. The Top Coat formula delivers 2x the volume to your manicure – creating dramatically fuller-looking nails with a high-gloss, mirror shine finish.

The result: the look of a gel manicure at home, without the trip to a salon! Miracle Gel’s simple application takes just two steps. First, apply two thin coats of Miracle Gel color to clean, bare nails. Then, apply one coat of the new Miracle GelTop Coat. Natural light does the rest, creating a manicure that resembles a UV / LED cured gel polish and up to 14 days of color and shine. The next best thing to a salon gel manicure, without using an UV / LED light AND removes easily with regular nail polish remover.

To coincide with the release of the new top coat, Sally Hansen announces a total of 20 new vibrant colors of Miracle Gel.

The Tribal Vibe collection adds seven new sun-baked shades to the permanent line up: Cream of the Crop (ivory with a hint of warmth), Tribal Sun (fiery coral like the setting sun), Rhythm & Blue (mirrors the hue of a bright blue sky), Totem-ly Yours (an appealing dusty rose),  Per-Suede ( the color of rich reddish leather), Terra-Coppa (melds the gleam of copper with the earthy appeal of pottery) and Buffalo Nickel (a cool, classic silver white).

5 4 3 2 1 unnamedAnother new collection, Boho Chic, brings together seven festival-ready saturated shades for free spirits everywhere: Rhapsody Red (updates classic cardinal red with a blue undertone), Tipsy Gypsy (a bubbly, bright pink), Boho a-Go-Go ( a deep, creamy eggplant), Beatnik ( a statement-making cobalt), Mintage (a medium-toned mint), Fish-teal Braid (an aquatic turquoise), Miss Wanderlust (packs colorful glitter into a soft stunning coral

In addition, limited-edition duo packs pair the new Miracle Gel top coat with one of six summery colors: Blue Hue (a subdued, milk-glass blue), Teal Twin (a dark gemstone teal), Geo-Mint-ric (a vibrant spearmint), Get it Bright (the color of freshly sliced watermelon), Block Party (a tigerlily orange, tinged with coral),Up the Ante ( a medium-toned plum)

Covergirl Super Sizer Mascara and Intensify Me Liquid Eyeliner

I have always been a fan of Covergirl cosmetics.  Their brand embodies the stylish, care-free beauty guru. She’s the girl next door wearing a bold nail color and likes to purchase an eyeshadow quad for a reasonable price!

FullSizeRender (76)

The latest product to join the Covergirl Collection is the Super Sizer by LashBlast® Mascara and Intensify Me! Liquid Eyeliner by LashBlast.  I received both products from the company and could not wait to start using them.

If you’re a consistent reader of this site and follow my Instagram account, you’re aware of my battle to intensify the eye area.  I am constantly seeking quality products to enhance my eyelashes and top lid.

Style + Life + Fashion Review –

Number one, the Super Sizer by LashBlast Mascara has an amazing small wand that enables the mascara to grasp every lash.  This gives volume and it’s a waterproof product.  We’re traveling to the beach or hanging out by the pool and that doesn’t mean we can’t look fabulous!

covergirl_super_sizer_mascara

Number two, the Liquid Eyeliner by LashBlast has a really cool tip…it’s actually flat.  That’s important because beauty girls can draw an accurate line on their top lid.  The liner is also sensitive to the eyes which is very important this time of the year.

If you don’t believe me, purchase and try for yourself.  I guarantee that you will be pleased with both products.  Share your experience with me in the comments section or email kim@stylelifefashion.com

 

butter LONDON Cosmetics & Nail Lacquer – Beauty Review

butter LONDON is expanding beyond nail lacquer into cosmetics that encourages creativity, while remaining devoted to colour without compromise.

FullSizeRender (73)

I was super excited to receive a package from the company.  The items in my box included:

Lippy Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon

Union Jack Black Eye Pencil

ICONOLAST Mega Volume Lacquer Mascara

Nail LACQUER LadyBird

IMG_3983

The Review –

I started with my weekly manicure and decided to wear the LadyBird Nail Lacquer.  The color was true to shade (of what’s shown in the bottle) and had a high gloss.  It also paints nicely and lasted for a few days.  I was pleased with the results of my manicure.

IMG_3797

The butter London Lip Crayon was amazing; an unexpected surprise.  The crayon was extremely soft, gorgeous color, and the top is actually a pencil sharpener.  I like to apply makeup daily so this makes my process faster; simply open the top and sharpen your lip crayon.

IMG_3984

How often do we purchase an eye pencil and the color’s difficult to apply.  In my case, I like to wear black eyeliner to open my eyes because that’s the shade of my lashes.  The Wink Eye Pencil (again) was easy to use and provided a beautiful line.  Here’s a tip, when using a good eye pencil there’s no need to heat the top of the pencil!

The last goodie in my package was the Mega Volume Mascara.  This mascara has a unique wand with a small ball at the end for your bottom lashes.  Aside from the fact my lashes received a “mega” boost, my bottom lashes gained volume as well.

IMG_3985

I am a huge fan of the butter London Cosmetics and Nail Lacquer Collection.  I hope to share more of their products with you in the future.  Visit the website to purchase items for your summer look!

FullSizeRender (64)

Bigger, Better and Braver…that is Christina “Brave” William’s approach to 2015, and she is doing just that with our biggest announcement yet for our client B Fragranced, a trending fragrance line. Reality TV star of “R&B Divas” and Billboard hit artist, Brave is the new official ambassador of B Fragranced

Brave’s new album “Fearless” is fitting for both her personality as well as the fearlessness that women feel with Embellish Eau de Parfum’s scent.

The essence of class, romance, and glamour, Embellish embodies all of the characteristics of female sophistication. Indulgent yet light, the fragrance infuses sparkling notes of apple and peach with a splash of citron. With B Fragranced’s mission to encourage women to embrace their feminine individuality, the effervescent notes of jasmine and honeysuckle balance the sultry base of soft amber and sandalwood to make Embellish any woman’s signature scent. Once the fragrance touches your skin, it will adjust to your body chemistry and enhance your natural scent in order to emit a fragrance that is simply your own.

FullSizeRender (65)

Embellish retails for $54.00 for a 1.7 oz. bottle and $76.00 for a 3.4 oz. bottle at www.bfragranced.com.

Summer is just beginning, and Embellish is the ideal summer scent for any woman. Whether it is a birthday, anniversary or any other special occasion, a new fragrance is the perfect gift, and a one-of-a-kind scent that adjusts to each woman is the perfect way to celebrate her. Show your loved one how much you appreciate her individuality with a gift that’s as unique as she is.

embellish

The creator founder of B Fragranced, Marilyn Jones, lost her mother to breast cancer at an early age. Her only true memory of her mother was her mother’s scent. This sparked a passion to create a fragrance as unique as the woman who wears it. The new face of B Fragranced, Brave, is persevering through her father’s diagnosis of prostate cancer and early signs of dementia. Fate brought these two fearless women together, and with a product that they both believe in, they are working side by side to empower all women.

SALLY HANSEN INTRODUCES BIG PEELOFF BASE COATTM

Everyone wants a manicure that looks perfect, resists smudges, and removes easily. Traditionally, it hasn’t always been easy to achieve those desired results. Now, however, Sally Hansen introduces a nail essentials to simplify and improve the at-home manicure regimen: Big Peel Off Base CoatTM .

For nail-art aficionados, glitter girls, and anyone else who lives for regular manicures, Big Peel Off Base Coat changeseverything. Nail polish remover can be harsh on nails, leaving them dry and brittle—and therefore, prone to breakage.

That all changes with the introduction of Big Peel Off Base CoatTM. This fast, convenient easy base coat makes it easy to remove glitters and other special effect polishes in a single step. Just paint on the base coat, which quickly dries to a transparent finish. Apply nail polish as usual and enjoy the manicure. When it’s time for a change, simply peel off the polish in one fluid movement. No scrubbing, soaking, or fussing—just a clean, healthy-looking nail.
