And speaking of nail polish… be prepared for a great beauty-related “catch and release” tool! Don’t fret over wrecking your fingers or your toes while removing, fixing, or adding polish. Instead, try the ASP Cotton Ball Grabber at Sally Beauty like I did, a fun little gadget that comes in at $3.99 and will be on task with grabbing a remover-soaked cotton ball, and dropping it in the garbage without messing up a single nail!
I can’t get enough of the new Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick and Precision Glide Lip Liner! For a person who is rather lip liner phobic, I’ve found that this formulations glides on, without creating harsh, non-erasable lines, getting expert precision and blending out, thanks to the provided “lip paddle” tool on the end. The lipsticks live up to their name, with a texture unlike any other that I’ve tried before, in a formula that includes shea butter and Vitamins A, C, and E. I love layering my favorite of the 40 shade lineup, Tropicoral, with my old standby, Beautiful Color Luminous Lip Gloss in Sunset. The Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick retails for $25 each, while the Precision Glide Lip Liner is $20.50.
Let’s talk anti-aging, ya’ll!
