Look Familiar?

Look familiar? No, it's not the YSL Touché Éclat highlighting pen. It's Beautycounter's Touch Up Skin concealer and highlighter! It's not the $41 expensive designer brand, it's better. For $28 it gives  great coverage to hide the under-eye darkness while highlighting the cheekbones and any areas that need a lift.

It's a bargain and it performs! I get the lightest shade for maximum highlight. If I had to choose three products I couldn't live without, this is definitely one.

I'm Rocking the Tint!

I've been wearing Tint Skin Complexion Coverage for a few days now and I love it! It's Beautycounter's answer to tinted moisturizer but it is so much more! Not only is my face not dry (as it can be during the winter) but it is NOT OILY which is why I have stayed away from tinted moisturizers in the past. The oil slick.

I chose Linen for my naturally white pallor and it gives me a gentile warm glow. The coverage is light to medium, covering my trouble spot and yet it is so forgiving! It's not like a base coverage that leaves lines or, shudder, your face a different color than your neck. Yikes.

It's the perfect amount of coverage for me without leaving an oily shine. Comment now and I'll send you a sample of Linen Tint Skin! (limited to the first 3 to comment)

Tint Skin $38.00


From the Beautycounter description:
Our game-changing Tint Skin Complexion Coverage is a creamy tinted moisturizer that evens out skin tone and diffuses pores for a glowing complexion. Three years in development, this lightweight formula goes on seamlessly and blends effortlessly. The coverage level is up to you: apply with our retractable Complexion Coverage Brush for a sheer, no-makeup look, or layer for additional coverage. Hyaluronic acid, a natural moisture magnet, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and promotes smoother, fresher-looking skin. Offered in seven shades so every skin tone gets a match—because we believe everyone deserves to feel like they have enviably beautiful skin.

I'm a Snapper!

I went to Snap Kitchen for the first time. The Preston Royal location staff were so helpful in describing the store, products, nutrition and how to shop. I started at one end and made my way around the store. What fun! Eating healthy may not be as hard as I thought.

I bought a Cashew and Easy Greens juice, Green Enchiladas, Bison Hash, Tiki Masala Chicken, Date and Chia pudding and a Devily Eggs. I can't wait to try them all and will update as I go.

The Winter menu starts Monday, December 8th so get your Fall favorites this weekend before they leave. Here's a Winter menu preview from the Snap Kitchen website.

Do you have some favorites? Asian Chicken Salad and Chicken Fingers with honey mustard were recommended and I will try them next. Yum!

Chihuly Concert Nights - count me in!

I have been dying to see the Chihuly exhibit at the Dallas Arboretum, but not enough to brave the heat just yet. Luckily, the exhibit goes into early November so there's plenty of time to see it, at night, with a concert!

Here is the concert link, anyone want to plan a fun night this Fall? Hunter Sullivan or Emerald City?

Pic from Dallas Arboretum page

I'd love to see comments from anyone who has seen the exhibit. It looks AMAZING!

Protandim updates!

Four months of taking Protandim! Aside from the better (deep REM) sleep and energy, my favorite improvement is.....seasonal allergies almost gone. Only a sneeze or two and no sinus infections. Big improvement for me.

Workout Junkies! During a workout, the increased oxygen produces more free radicals which creates more oxidative stress, and it depletes your glutathione supply. Protandim decreases oxidative stress by at least 40%, and increases Glutathione by 300%---therefore, faster recovery!

The state of oxidative stress can impair several cellular signaling pathways that may result in the onset of age related diseases. Protandim reduces oxidative stress! I take it so I won't burden my family with dementia later.

Piperlime Does Pink!

I am a huge fan and consummate shopper of Piperlime. It is a Gap company but it isn't your basic t's and jeans. It has been coming on strong in the cute department and with a special link for "girls on a budget" you most likely will find your perfect summer outfit. I just had to post the email I got today - it's so pretty in pink!

I'd love to hear what y'all think - any cute purchases? Anything that strikes your fancy?
