Orange You Glad

Orange you glad I'm totally obsessed with make-up so I can be your guinea pig?!

While in NYC a few weeks ago, my cousin and I spent 2 hours in the wonderful, 2 story Sephora on 5th Ave.  Neither of us have a Sephora in our towns so we were in make-up heaven!

We were sucked in by the beautiful Amanda, the flawless faced saleswoman of the decade, at the Hourglass kiosk.  I had never heard of Hourglass and was immediately drawn to their gorgeous lipstick colors.  

I wanted a nude, but she convinced me to try on this bright orange color against my better judgment.  



Holy cow!  I love it!  It's not a red, not an orange, but a gorgeous, sophisticated, springy coral hybrid.  


Evidently, orange is the new red.  Everybody's doing it....

I'm also loving these additional Hourglass products that I picked up that day.  Hourglass is a wonderful, new to me, line that offers gorgeous products that are good for your skin, made with essential oils, lipid-rich plant oils, and skin rejuvenating vitamins. They are made without sulfates, phthalates, GMOs, synthetic fragrances and dyes, gluten, and triclosan.

(I use this as my bronzer.)

(I use this as an all over finishing powder.)

(This creates the most natural looking brows.  I've needed this for a very long time since I basically have no brows.  What a difference it makes!)


(This primer feels great, has SPF 15, and creates a perfect base for foundation.)

(This is brand new and much anticipated by the beauty gurus.  It's a gorgeous new blush and it's on its way to my house right now!)

p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  Because we have one episode of "House Of Cards" Season 2 left.  It's so good and the next to the last episode was MIND BLOWING!  I can't wait to see how it wraps up.  If you're not already watching this show, watch it ASAP!  You'll love it!!!

  2. I'm a make up junkie too! There is a Sephora near my work but I don't think they have that Hourglass brand. I will have to look! I love orange lipstick. It looks so good on blonds, brunettes and redheads!

  3. thanks for the make-up tip!! you know I took a make-up lesson a few weeks ago...I never really learned how to do the eyes before....not sure if I really learned this tiem around either....but I did get some good tips. I need to get into House of Cards...maybe over the summer. Downton Abbey caught me by surprise this Sunday...I didn't realize it was the last episode of the season. Now we have to wait a full year. The tragedy!
