COLORCORRECT was recently listed on MSN’s list of products that will improve your beauty routine! Our double-sided pencil emphasizes your eyes while helping you conceal dark circles and blemishes.  The highlighter side also works wonders for creating a Cupid’s bow for those who want fuller-looking lips sans injections.  See the article here.

Celebrate Women’s History Month

unnamed-2

This March, as we celebrate Women’s History Month, it seems fitting to highlight two women who really the started cosmetic industry. Recently, I finished the book  War Paint  by Lindy Woodhead, which chronicles the lives of Elizabeth Arden and Helena Rubenstein.  If you haven’t already, I highly recommend that you pick up this biography-it’s a fascinating read.

Rubenstein and Arden launched their businesses a world apart and under very different circumstances, and competed and collided at every turn.  Originally they both focused on skincare as proper women did not wear makeup, but by 1912 they had both dipped into the world of color.

The book chronicles the incredible societal changes that took place in just ten short years. When the suffragettes marched for voting rights in 1912, as a sign of their independence they wore red lipstick “because they wanted to.” As we headed into the ‘roaring 20s with the use of  kohl eyeliners, eyeshadows, rouge, and lipstick, the women’s revolution leaped forward.

During the depression era of the 1930s, any extra pocket money was spent on a lipstick. The 40s brought WWll, and women went to work, headed up the households, and developed true purchasing power. By that time, Charles Revson of REVLON began selling nail polish and the beauty industry never looked back.

Who knew that the freedom to choose wearing a lipstick would have such an impact? Yes, even the freedom to wear makeup is a sign of progress and power.  We’d like to support you this month on your busy journeys. My makeup line was designed for active women – keeping their lives simple while never sacrificing a great lipstick.

XOXO,

What The Shape Of Your Lipstick Says About You

Did you know the shape of your lipstick just might stand as a personality test? Here are some of the things we’ve learned when it comes to judging someone by the shape of their COLORESSENTIAL lipstick.

 

LipStickBlogNoCopy-1
SLANT – close to original shape

 

You are someone who abides by the rules. You walk the line. You don’t like too much attention and are a bit self-conscious and reserved. You are quite schedule driven! You may occasionally want to attract attention – but it’s through new outfits or changing your hair.

FLAT TOP

 

You are someone who is very to the point! You are dependable and even-tempered. You have high morals, are quick-minded, and love a great challenge. You are very careful about your appearance.

Lipstick-sharp-angle

SHARP ANGLE TIP

 

You are very opinionated and high-spirited. You are very careful and selective about your friends. You dislike schedules! You are very outgoing and love attention. You can be quite argumentative. The sharper the point, the more ambitious this wearer is.

FLAT TOP CONCAVE

 

You are a great detective! You easily make friends and are inquisitive. You are very adventurous and complex. You love excitement.

SHARP ANGLES BOTH SIDES

 

You are spiritual and curious. You can have a big ego at times and you seek attention. You can be mysterious – but you have a deep love for life. You are a woman who knows what they want and are single-minded about getting it. Double-edged swords value loyalty and are nurturing- but be careful of crossing them.

SHARP ANGLED BOX CURVED TIP

 

You are very creative and talkative. You love attention and are energetic and enthusiastic. You are helpful and fall in love easily.

ROUNDED TIP TO A POINT

 

You are loveable! You’re family-oriented and domestic – a “doer”. You can be stubborn over little things and can be prone to exaggerate. You like having people around and often need others around.

ROUNDED SMOOTH TIP

 

You are easy-going and a peacemaker who’s even tempered. You are steady, likeable, and generous!

Beauty Tip: The Many Uses of Coconut Oil

coconutoil

 

One of my favorite items on my beauty counter is coconut oil. This product is good for just about everything.  Whether I’m at home or traveling, I am never without organic coconut oil. I use it primarily as a body moisturizer and cook with it, but from time to time I have also used it to remove makeup- including eye makeup. I have also rubbed it into my cuticles and on my feet before bed for extra moisture.  It’s great to apply a small amount to your hair to get rid of fly-aways. And, the best part? It smells so good!  It’s a great massage oil as well.  Do you use coconut oil?
