Okay ladies, like it or not it’s November 1 and Halloween is officially over. So you know what that means – it’s time for me to commit the mortal sin of talking about Christmas! And what’s better for the holidays than a full, bold red lip color? (Okay, maybe an iPad.)
BA Star, a makeup company that specializes in cheer and dance team makeup, sent me their Holiday Red Lip Pencil and I was skeptical at first – could a lip pencil really deliver the kind of intense color I wanted? The answer is yes. One swipe and I could see why the BA Star line is so stage-friendly: the color was bright, vivid and wasn’t going anywhere.
Bella Thorne is the star of the Disney Channel’s Shake It Up! and a lovely face (one battling recent rumors of lip injections – oh my) on the rise whose name you’ll be hearing a lot more.

Star of the Disney Channel’s uber-successful “Jessie”, Debby Ryan is near and dear to my heart as a fellow redhead (as is her Disney cohort Bella Thorne!).

We’re all looking for inexpensive versions of luxury skincare products that still do the trick to make us look younger and better. That’s one of the things that led me to pick up Lumene Time Freeze Firming Day Cream. I’m not all that saggy yet – but I’ve already got some areas that need serious help.
The product smells great, but it’s on the oily side – I’d only recommend it for really dry skin. It worked a lot better for me after I moved to Phoenix than when I lived in the humid Houston weather.
Get ready for some science, girls! The latest buzz in beauty and skincare products surrounds nanotechnology, which basically means the manipulation of extremely small particles. The idea is, teeny tiny ingredients can get deeper into the skin, contact more skin layers, and work faster.
