How to Make Steel-Cut Oats in the Instant Pot
by Katie Wells on November 12, 2019 at 8:25 pm
I’m a big fan of eating a filling breakfast to start the day off right. When we have oatmeal, steel-cut oats are my go-to choice. They’re less processed than rolled oats and keep you feeling full longer. We like to try different add-ins to the oats for interest and variety after getting them out of the … Continue reading How to Make Steel-Cut Oats in the Instant Pot...

Chanel Rouge Delicieux & Rouge Splendide Rouge Allure Lip Colours Reviews & Swatches
by Christine on November 13, 2019 at 5:00 pm
Chanel Rouge Delicieux (807) Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour ($45.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark pink with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging. The texture was very lightweight and looked more emollient and shiny than you'd expect based on the feel of it--more velvety without the true slip of a cream finish. It wore well for five hours and was hydrating over time. Chanel Rouge Splendide (817) Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour ($45.00 for 0.12 oz.) is Continue Reading…
NABLA Cosmetics Adults Only Skin Glazing Highlighter Review & Swatches
by Christine on November 13, 2019 at 3:00 pm
NABLA Cosmetics Adults Only Skin Glazing Highlighter Powder ($26.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a deep, coppery red with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, moderately dense texture that felt firm to the touch but was not stiff or difficult to work with on my skin, as the product blended out easily along the edges. I'd recommend using a moderately denser brush and gentle pushing motions to pick up this product based on its more gel-powder like base. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading visibly.
What was the last mascara you wore? Share a mini-review!
by Christine on November 13, 2019 at 1:00 pm
Pat McGrath's FetishEyes mascara; it's really nice for lengthening, thickening, and being pretty inky black. Over time, it does dry out a bit and I find it is a little more prone to clumping but not consistently (so sometimes I'm like... is it me??).

Remodel Your Employee Lounge to Strike Up New Ideas
by dsimpson on November 12, 2019 at 12:23 am
Transform your employee lounge into an area where stylists can not only relax and recharge, but also ignite ideas–a win-win for staff memebers and owners alike. "Work hard, play hard" is a motto most stylists ascribe. So when they’re not giving their energy to clients, colorists and cutters seek respite in the break room. While owners don’t want employees spending all of their time away from the main-floor action, a well-conceived break room can serve as both a spot to wind down and reenergize. Get inspired with these tips on how to turn employee lounges into motivation destinations. 1. Stay Fueled: Coffee machines are a mandatory staple of any well-equipped common room, but why stop there? Keep team members happy with additional beverages—tea, sparkling water, smoothies—and healthy snacks stocked in the fridge and pantry. "Think items that are quick to grab and consume, so it’s easy to refuel on busy days when taking breaks might otherwise be challenging,” suggests Tina Dizon, owner of "The Private Room in Beverly Hills, California. High-protein treats like nuts, fruit or energy bars boost productivity while staving off the dreaded sugar crash.Education
EndureLash Announces Endure Beauty Pro Training Academy
by adodds on November 10, 2019 at 2:02 pm
Amy DoddsAfter a year in the making, Nikki Huebner of Endure Beauty announces plans to launch the EndureLash by Endure Beauty Pro Training Academy early next year, offering lash technicians across the U.S. and Canada the opportunity to develop and perfect their lash artistry skills. “Our goal is to educate lash technicians on how to develop and hone in on their own given artistic skill set, offer them ways to be better business owners, make more money, and become better artists,” Huebner promises. Huebner first came to the lash market over two years ago with her EndureLash Organic Cleansing Cloth, a lash-extension-safe after care tool. She has since grown her business exponentially at the wholesale and retail level. She has also created a well established organic skincare brand called Endure Beauty, which includes back bar spa and salon products and several retail offerings. This past summer, Huebner conceived the EndureLash Pro product line with the launch of EndureLash by Endure Beauty Pro Professional Lash Trays.Education

The MAC Holiday 2019 “Starring You” Collection! (Swatches on NC42 Skin)
by Karen on November 13, 2019 at 3:22 pm
As the name would imply, “you,” or “we,” are intended to be stars of this show — the MAC Holiday 2019 “Starring You” collection show — since it’s starring…you, buuuut as much as I love ya, the real stars of this show are the glitter and frost. Sorry! But yeah. Lots. O’. Glitter. This release is all about big bling. Quick MAC backstory: every year, MAC releases a massive limited edition holiday collection that includes a bunch of gift sets and at least one large makeup collection. The swatches here (all on my NC42 skin) are of the products in this year’s makeup collection. First, the LE packaging stands out with glossy black compacts and tubes and caps sprinkled with multicolored disco glitter, and it’s very disco ’70s over-the-top glam. 🙂 Me like. It definitely makes a certain kind of impression…that we are here to have a party! Also, I mean, I guess one could wear every product here on their face at once, because why not, right? Life is short. Might as well wear all the glitter you can, but for me, that would be a lot of look, especially to wear to work during the day.

Space Buns and Sparkly Purple Lids
by Karen on November 12, 2019 at 4:23 pm
I’m sure this tri-bun hairstyle has an official/formal name, but I intend to call it “space buns,” because there’s something undeniably Star Wars about it… If I were hurtling through space on a rocket bound for Mars, and I was required to wear my hair up (to protect the sensitive electronic equipment from static discharge, you see), you better believe I would NOT be rocking a basic low pony. SPACE BUNS ALL THE WAY, GIRLFRIEND. Side note: Connor calls this a “pony hairstyle” because she’s into horses at the moment. Maybe it’s the stars twinkling in the firmament…but sparkles and space buns just seem *right* to me, hence the purple glitter in this look. I got a few compliments from my coworkers when I wore this to the bakery the other day. 🙂 It was nice. I think it was because this is one of those looks that isn’t too over the top in terms of base and lips (I kept the foundation super sheer and the lips glossy and subtly sparkly, which boosts the wearability for daytime), but I think the glitter is punchy and fun enough to catch your eye.

Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 600
by Karen on November 11, 2019 at 4:49 pm
So…what is the Monday Poll? Excellent question! It isn’t, contrary to its name, an actual poll, like with little clicky buttons. It’s just a list of five more or less random questions I’ve been posting on this blog every Monday morning for the past quadrillion years (since 2007). I love reading your answers, and it helps me get my week off to a good start. 1. Black liquid liner or brown pencil liner? I’m equally passionate about both (hello, Clinique Easy Liner and MAC Coffee), so this is a very difficult choice for me…but I’m going to have to go with brown pencil, and here’s why: if I want to, I figure I can make the brown pencil look darker by layering a black or dark brown eyeshadow on top, whereas with the black liquid eyeliner, you can’t really make it lighter. You know what I’m saying? It’s easier to go from lighter to darker than from darker to lighter. 2. Skincare products you put on your face this morning? Here we go! Fresh Soy Cleanser Paula’s Choice BHA Lilfox Kalahari Serum, Aloha Youth Serum and Laurel Skin Sun Serum (got these all from a recent Beauty Heroes box) Kate Somerville Anti Bac (always and forever) Elta MD Clear Sunscreen, which I’m testing this week 3.
