Product Re-Purchase: Pur Minerals Foundation

Hi Bellas,

Happy Halloween!  I'm pumped about a costume party I'm going to tonight.  I'll make sure to take pics.  Meanwhile, today I thought I'd focus on a product that I know works.  As a beauty blogger I try out a lot of new products so when I repurchase something you know it's a winner!  Today I'm featuring Pur Minerals Pressed Mineral Foundation.  It's really the only mineral makeup I'd use.  Today I've got pics and I'll show you my favorite way to apply it.  Check it out!

Beauty for a cause! Genefique St. Jude's Day

Hi Bellas,

This year Lancome is doing a really special event in Atlanta and I thought I'd share it with you all.  
On October 5, in honor of the upcoming Génifique Day (formerly Genes Day), Dillard’s (Perimeter Mall in Dunwoody) is hosting a special event at their Lancôme counter from 12 noon to 4 p.m. Beauty lovers get a makeover with beauty expert Mickey Williams and for every purchase they make of Génifique products totaling $35 or more, Lancôme will donate $7 to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
They’ll also gift the purchaser with a bottle of Génifique! Participants are also welcome to take a photo in an onsite photo booth and upload the photo directly to Facebook. Pretty cool, huh?

For those of you who can’t make it to Dillard’s on the 5th, youcan still support St. Jude by:
·         Participating in Génifique Day on October 19. On this day, the company will donate $7 from the in-store or online sale of Génifique* to St. Jude.
·         Using Lancôme’s Facebook app, launching October 8, to spread awareness of Génifique Day online. The app will allow users to create and share virtual photo booth photo strips, declaring the occasion when they feel their best.

Gotta love beauty for a cause right?  Happy Shopping!
