Military Inspired Vince Camuto Winchell Boots

Last year I purchased my first pair of boots and handbag from Vince Camuto. I’ve been making sure to keep up with the brand ever since and it was love at first sight when I laid eyes on the Winchell Boots. I love the military inspired look with the gold plate on the heel and the gold and black buckle. These boots are perfect for day and night and can pair well with a cute skirt, leggings or even your favorite pair of skinny jeans.  Pair this with a large bag like the Brahmin Large Duxbury satchel and the Cara… View Post

Jordana Twist and Shine Lip Balm is an Unexpected Suprise!

  Lip Balms are moisturizing yes.. pigmented… not really.. well at least thats what I would have said before I tried the Jordana Twist and Shine Lip Balms. I’ve heard other bloggers gushing about them and I saw my boo thang glitterglossgarbage’s swatches, but I really didn’t become a believer until after I swatched them across my own lips. To cut straight to the chase the Jordana Twist and Shine Lip Balms are just that. They are basically a crayon like Lip Balm that twist at the bottom. They are beyond moisturizing and pigmented. The best part is that they… View Post

Is the Wet Wrap Fashionable Enough to be Worn in Public?

I opened my email today and I was completely shocked.. no floored to find that the Wet Wrap is considered to be fashionable enough to wear down the runway. I remember many times getting my hair wrapped and then tying it up so that I could unwrap it in the morning. I also remember “ghetto” women walking around with their hair wrapped as if it were a style. Have these women been redeemed? Were they merely 15 years ahead of their time? Apparently so…. To my surprise the Wet Wrap has graced the stage at NYFW in the LOUISE GOLDIN SPRING/SUMMER… View Post

[button link=”http://www.cosmetically-challenged.com/disclosure/” target=”_blank” color=”default” shape=”rounded” size=”small” align=”left”]Press Sample[/button]   The perfect skin care regimen is often hard to find. I’ve tried several products to try and help me combat my oily skin, black heads and occasional breakouts but I never found a regimen that could give me everything that I needed. A couple of months ago I was introduced to the Mario Badescu skin care line and after speaking with a consultant I received an entire regimen of skin care products that would suit all my needs. There were six products in the regimen and I also received a personalized… View Post

Turn Your Old Clothes into Something New!

[button color=”grey” link=”http://www.cosmetically-challenged.com/disclosure/”]Sponsored Post[/button]     Why it is So Easy to Sell Your Clothes for Cash If you have a wardrobe full of old clothes, you may be sitting on a fortune. In the past, old clothes did not have very much value. Very few people wanted to buy second hand clothes and if they did, they generally went to charity shops to do so. Up until fairly recently, there was some social stigma to wearing second hand clothes and very few people would admit that their wardrobe contained items they had been previously worn by someone else. These… View Post

MAKE UP FOR EVER, the Paris based professional makeup brand coveted by top industry artists, is launching Foundation Nation, a campaign to help women everywhere address the most common foundation makeup challenges.

I’ve often seen women walking around with foundation that is either a couple of shades too dark… View Post
