Available where Lipstick Queen is sold. Top to Bottom: Soho, Central Park, Upper East   Love this liner in Coral. Quote from

Maybe My All Time Favorite Moisturizer

Kate Somerville Goat Milk Cream The BEST moisturizer I’ve used in years.  It’s right up there with Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré for its nourishing, thirst quenching properties and it works amazingly under make-up which is a decisive factor for me when it comes to day moisturizer. It contains goat milk proteins, vitamins, and amino acids, lactic acid, jojoba, coconut and avocado oil, aloe, grape seed extract, witch hazel, and more. The

Product Review: Sunday Riley Luna & Good Genes

Both live up to all the hype they’ve received.  I’ve gone through one bottle each and repurchased. Luna Sleeping Night Oil What it claims to do? “With an advanced retinol complex, Luna Sleeping Night Oil helps to lessen visibility of lines and wrinkles, while correcting signs of damage caused by sun, time and everyday exposure to pollutants. The replenishing oil intensively hydrates and stimulates sluggish cells to encourage repair and

Product Review: NYX Butter Gloss

NYX Butter Gloss As the name suggests, these buttery lip glosses are very moisturizing and comfortable to wear on the lips. I have the shades (L to R) Eclair, Maple Blonde, and Peach Cobbler.  I love them all and hope to grab a couple of others. Available at Ulta and Target for only $4.99 each. Gold flatware.  Takes some effort to care for but oh so beautiful.

Product Review: Baby Foot

Baby Foot I recommend you buy this product immediately.  I’ve done this treatment twice myself and have also bought it as a gift for several people.  It’s incredible and deserves all the hype. After soaking your feet in the provided booties for a couple of hours, the fruit acids get to work removing all of your dead skin.  It can take up to six days before you start to see

Product Review: Exfoliators

George Washington and paper flowers Here’s a rundown on some of the exfoliants in my rotation.

Product Review: Therapie Himalayan Detox Salts

  Wow.  These bath salts have developed a cult following and it’s no wonder.  They’re amazing.  Cult Beauty describes it as “a natural version of valium.”  That’s an apt description.  It also claims to treat insomnia and absorb radiation from mobile & computer use.  There’s no way to quantify a reduction in radiation but it treats insomnia like a dream.  This is a wonderful and luxurious sleepy time aide. The
