Deep Blue Healing Properties

We all need a little help with our skin from time to time. Things like harsh elements, sun, stress and poor diet all contribute to unsightly breakouts, scaly patches, red skin. Have no fear, CoralActives is here.

- "CoralActive's SeaWhip enzyme is the foundation of the skin’s inflammation response that leads to signs of redness and discomfort. Sea Whip Extract has also been shown to assist the skin to repair itself. It is a natural solution for sensitive and irritated skin."
   And, the SeaWhip Coral found in the Caribbean is totally renewable. How cutting edge is that?

CoralActives™ Retinol Exfoliating Cleanser

Retinol Exfoliating Cleanser with SeaWhip Extracts means you are steps closer to smoother, clear skin. Women spend thousands on plastic surgery, harsh techniques that don't always work. All they really need is a superior skincare line. CoralActives  is brand sparkling new and has done cutting edge research with emis Labs for us. They've developed some awesome products, that won't break the bank. Retinol Exfoliating Cleanser releases the perfect amount of pure vitamin A. The texture feels fresh, and I'm addicted to the cucumber, clean scent. Cleanser that leaves the skin feeling clean, washes away oil, bacteria, and dead surfaces from the skin. Retinol Exfoliating Cleanser promotes collagen growth, and stimulates skin renewal. I like to switch up my skincare routine every 3-4 months. Retinol Exfoliating Cleanser is the perfect product to incorporate for fall, complimenting the change in seasons.

Penetrating Acne Serum Gel

A lightweight Serum that dries quickly, fights acne and leaves the skin looking radiant. Penetrating Acne Serum Gel packed with 6% Benzoyl Peroxide, is a burst of oxygen for the skin. Sounds good to me. With all the yummy ingredients and 6% Benzoyl Peroxide strength, once a day application is all you need. If the skin gets red, chapped and burns just cut back on the application. Don't give up, this product is meant to be strong. Your skin will settle down. In no time, people will be commenting on how amazing your skin looks. Wait and see, Coral Actives delivers.

"6% Benzoyl Peroxide; to kill bacteria

Sea Whip Extract; to help your inflamed skin
Humectants; to attract water from the atmosphere onto your skin
Emollients; to retain the moisture on your skin"


Ever been victim of the occasional chest, back and butt breakout? Wheter SoulCycle sweating, exercise fiend or just plain oily skin, bumps happen. Even supermodels and A listers need some makeup help with slight body imperfections. This little bar full of magic ingredients says bye-bye bumps, hello smooth skin.  
"10% Benzoyl Peroxide
There is nothing better at killing bacteria than benzoyl peroxide.
Coconut Oil
A natural product found in coconut oil is lauricacid. Lauric Acid (which is also found naturally in mothers’ milk) is a nutrient that supports the body’s normal functional response to bacteria and viruses.
Vitamin A
Vitamin A keeps skin and mucous membrane cells healthy. When membranes are healthy they stay moist and resistant to cell damage. The moistness inhibits bacteria and viruses from initiating infectious diseases on the surface of the skin.
Vitamin E
Vitamin E is vital in protecting skin cells from ultra violet light, pollution, drugs, and other elements that produce cell damaging free radicals.
Shea Butter
Shea Butter is instilled with superb moisturizing and healing capacities for the skin. The application of Shea Butter has shown to help with eczema, acne blemishes, rashes dermatitis and other skin disorders. It also includes wound-healing (anti-bacterial) properties to heal skin problems in a healthy, soothing way."
Congrats CoralActives on the October 2012, mention in O magazine.
If it's good enough for Lady O, it's fantastic for me. Trendsetting CoralActives, the next big thing!

Just The Ticket

Women on the go rejoice. Cargo's got the product for any occasion. With so many choices in the world of Beaute, a girl can get lost in her own beauty closet. When I looked for something fresh and different, I received the very hip, Cargo Cosmetics. OMG, I fell in love all over again. The awesome signature tins, are virtually indestructible. Lip Gloss Quad put Cargo on the map. The superb quality kept it there. Four creamy, smooth, gloss shades easy to mix and match, or worn separately. Lip Quad is the rave with 'the in crowd' and artists that make them shine. Argentina Lip Quad, in rich burgundy, deep gold, pumpkin and sparkle dusty rose is spot on for the season.Your lips will sparkle sheen, in stunning shades of fall color.

Beach Blush is the only tin of sunshine you'll ever need, caught stranded on a desert island. Or cruising the city streets. In four complimentary shades, with a mix of bronzer and blush, Beach Blush instantly brightens the face. The funky tin makes swirling your blush brush fun, and application a breeze. Cable Beach, a bubbly pink with golden sheen highlights, colors the cheeks pretty, just like a supermodel.

"An oil-free, cream color stick that blends effortlessly to eyes, cheeks and lips, for a natural, monochromatic look."
I love dual function products, I adore TRI- function products even more.
They make life simple for the busy girl on the go. Lord knows, women I know aren't "binder ladies." They're out there, taking names and getting things done.
While looking impeccably fabulous, of course. ColorStick's lightweight formula stays put, creating an 'airbrushed' finish. Key West, a pretty, bubbly pink lights up the eyes, cheeks and lip. The airy texture combined with the tri-function, makes ColorStick a no brainer.

blu_ray High Definition Make-up

Finally, high-def. products that actually work! blu_ray High Definition Make-up is supreme coverage, without looking piled on or glue face.
Working in Film and TV get hairy fast, if you don't have the right products. Cargo's blu_ray line was created after numerous artists in the industry begged for quality high-def. products, that kept the TV personality looking like a real person. With 'Photochromatic Pigments and micronized minerals', Cargo did it. Giving the industry a reliable high def. line, that looks au naturale. I love blu_ray Bronzer.
With no pearly pigments, high-def. Bronzer does exactly what it's supposed to.
It adjusts to ambient light, creating a natural glow on the skin without the shimmer.
It's the perfect golden base shade of Bronze.

Thanks Cargo for the reintroduction.
You can be sure, you're coming out of the beauty closet.
And staying there.

Takin' It To The Streets

Leaf on StyleHaul takes it to the streets during Fashion Week.
Will becauseI'maddicted blogger Geri Hirsch be a trendsetter or a style watcher?
Will she get noticed, with bold prints, funky fashion choices, and put together, killer outfits.
She's young, pretty and hip. Why not take chances and risks with Fashion?
I love the bold, mustard print ensemble, the elegant (not so easy to wear black jumpsuit) paired with a stark, turquoise collar necklace and killer heels. Me? I'm a Frye boot wearing, black jean, tank top, Chrome Hearts girl. I admire Geri's whimsical, edgy style. Does the Street Style Photographer eventually get Geri's pic? You bet he does. Ah, paparazzi livin' 24 seven.

Color Me Happy

F- U- N. That's the first thing that comes to mind, when I think of Hard Candy. I know I'm in for a treat, when a bonanza of color, sparkle, lace and funky, shiny new Fall products arrive at my door. The second is QUALITY. Hard Candy may be affordable (yay!) and quirky, but the brand packs an A+ punch. With so many awesome, new pieces, where to begin? From the top.

Top Ten. The Eyeshadow collection comes with ten, perfect color combinations, a swank lace cover, and compact mirror. It's all the eyes need for fall. With five pretty, color collections to choose from, from light pearl shimmers to smoldering sexy shades, it's the perfect, chic compact.

If bold is you're thing, try Single & Lovin' It Eye Shadow. New for Fall, the super pigmented shadows, in pearl, glitter and shimmer will definitely get a girl noticed and turn heads.

Megawatt Smile. Just when you thought your day couldn't get any better?! Megawatt Smile comes along, a tri-lipstick product to brighten your world. One side is a lipstick with a top coat, shimmer center core. The other side, a brush-on tooth whitener. How cool is that? I told you we'd have fun, while looking pearly-white fantabulous. World Balmination got me through last winter's chapped lips.
I can't wait to test drive Megawatt Smile this season.

Lite Bright Concealer illuminates, as it wipes out dark circles.
The lightweight texture allows for building more coverage, and the brightening agent corrects imperfections over time. Reapplying made simple, add a touch before cocktails or a night on the town. The Click pen keeps application smooth and easy, and bacteria stays out.

Shockingly Glossy Lip Pencil. Creamy, glossy, delicious.
I love, love love these pencils. They deliver beautiful, intense color that stays put all day, feels sheer and light on the lip. Mix and match, make up your own dazzling lip shade.

Ginormous gloss, in one swoop covers the whole lip.
The luxurious glosses are infused with prisms of color that make lips seem fuller and plumper. Imagine my delight when I applied Confection, 
sweet Vanilla taste on the lip. The sparkles add fun to the flavor.

Thanks Hard Candy, for brightening the day, one awesome, funky product surprise at a time.
A special thanks to DNA Public Relations, who work tirelessly promoting their brands. Without beauty PR mavens., this blog would be an empty slate.

Anyone who reads this blog, knows I am a stickler for gorgeous skin, and luminous foundation. I love that myface cosmetics website offers celebrity skin tone comparisons."
