Hello! This post is coming a bit later than acnihicapted, but you still have about 24 hours to shop the President’s sale at Bluemercury. Bluemercury is a luxury cosmetic, beauty and spa with locations throughout the US. There was always a Bluemercury in my hometown store in IL and it was my go to for my mom and myself. I told my mom one time, that I couldn’t live somewhere where there wasn’t a Bluemercury. So GO and check out their Sale!

Hair Alchemy Shampoo / Conditioner: This is one of Oribe’s newer formulas and I purchased it right when it came out. My natural hair is rather thin and fragile. On top of that, I have extensions that dry out super fast in Colorado. This is a wonderful formula that gently cleanses your hair without removing the natural protection it needs. I switch off every month between the Alchemy and the Billiance and Shine Shampoo. Your hair can actually get use to a formula and stop taking in what it needs, so my hair stylists suggested I switch off formula’s every month.

Brilliance and Shine Shampoo / Conditioner: The brilliance and shine has been my go to for years! It is a classic shampoo for everyday use. It adds shine that illuminates your hair before using any heat.

Supershine Moisturizing Cream: Again – a classic! Something I have been using to protect my hair for years. I have always and I mean always used heat on my hair. Curling, straightening, and drying without fail and this helps me create that extra layer of protection my hair needs.

Hairdresser’s Oil: Sometimes I use both this and the Oribe Moisturizing cream. Especially if I know it will be an extra day of heat. When my hair is wet, I but on the moisturizing cream and before curling, I use this all over, in sections, and let it dry before I start to curl my hair. Curling is so rough on your hair, it is best to protect it as much as possible!

Maximista Thickening Spray: The thickening spray is a really cool product that I think I found through Emily’s blog, Champagne & Chanel. It is a heat protectant, volumizer, and and UV protectant. I do not use this product everyday, only for special occasions that really require volume!

Natural Radiant Foundation: First off, this foundation has SO many shades! Shades for everyone with maximum coverage. If you have any blemishes, they will be temporarily gone with this coverage. If you prefer a lightweight foundation, put on a light layer all over, it is totally buildable.

Soft Matte Complete Foundation: Again, all the shades you could want! This foundation actually contains bio hyaluronic acid that helps hydrate skin and maintain its moisture balance. So it is a mix between skincare and makeup! I feel really good wearing this foundation knowing I am not just putting makeup on all over my skin. I am putting makeup on, but my skin also gets moisture and the ability to breathe.

Glowscreen SPF 40: On the summer days, when it is hot outside, and I take my dog out, this is my go to! Super lightweight, enough coverage to give you a healthy glow AND protect your skin!

Vanish Airbrush Primer: Vanish is a very effective product primer; it really delivers as promised to control oil and minimize pores, and it feels great on my skin. Your foundation will go on perfectly each time.

Veil Powder Brush: Such a dynamic brush! You can use it for any kind of powered (eye, face, cheeks).

Stratosphere Volumizing Mascara: Volumizing and filling mascara for a really good everyday look. Just enough coverage for the day-to-day before you add on a few more layers for your evening look

Gloss Luxe Lip Gloss: Definitely not the lowest cost lip gloss, but this is amazing and everyone things so too! Thousands of five star reviews. Sheer-to-medium coverage and a shiny finish. Love layering this on top of all of my lipsticks!

Lip Color Lipstick:  Super moisturizing, Ultra-creamy texture and a luminous finish!

C E Ferulic: This is the ONLY product I splurge on on a regular basis. I was getting a facial and the woman recommended I start using some vitamin C as a preventative – especially since I use a stare at a screen so much. Helps fade and reduce imperfections.
