My newest OBSESSION….

I  am so in love with the new Ceramide Ultra Lift and Firm Makeup I want to sleep with it under my pillow. Its been added to my fire list of things I must grab!

How did it earn this undying devotion you may ask. Simply put it turns my ho hum face into a flawless looking canvas. It feels like normal foundation when you apply it maybe a bit more hydrating but in seconds it absorbs in your skin and you feel like you aren’t wearing anything. The best part is is leaves my skin so flawless I actually do a double take I can’t believe how great it makes my skin look. Thank you Elizabeth Arden!

Make Her Up Introduces neuLash!

A multitude of mechanical aggressors such as mascaras, eyelash curlers, make-up removers, tinting/perm treatments, false eyelashes/glues, and medications all weaken the structure of eyelashes. Also playing a key factor in slowing down the renewal process of eyelashes is aging. neuLash active eyelash technology offers maximum protection by delivering essential proteins, vitamins, moisturizing and rejuvenating ingredients to replenish and strengthen the structure of lashes, while adding shine and elasticity.

Conditioning eyelashes with neuLash® provides protection against breakage, hydrates, and makes lashes healthier (just like conditioner does for the hair), allowing lashes to stay on the lid longer. This gives them the opportunity to appear fuller and thicker – naturally. In contrast, the prescription drug for lashes only promotes growth without conditioning.

I received this product a couple weeks ago, and I wanted to give myself a while to try it – and decide whether or not this product actually works. I’ve tried several lash products that don’t actually live up to what they claim. I’m happy to report that after using nueLash for a couple weeks, it absolutely works! I’ve noticed a difference in the condition of my eyelashes! They are healthier, longer, and fuller!

neuLash® offers maximum protection for lashes by delivering essential proteins, vitamins, peptides, moisturizing and rejuvenating ingredients to replenish and strengthen lashes. The result is healthier and thicker-looking lashes in as little as two weeks, with maximum results at eight weeks. On the other hand, the prescription drug does not contain essential vitamins, proteins or peptides, does not condition lashes, and can take up to 16 weeks to achieve results.

With its consumer friendly and easy to use eyeliner-like applicator, neulash® is also more economical than the prescription drug product and contains about a three month supply, for an average cost of $1.67 per day. The average cost of the prescription drug is $4.00 per day for a one month supply. Also, you do not need a doctor’s visit or a prescription to obtain neuLash®, which is available at www.neuLash.com, Saks Fifth Avenue stores nationwide and www.saks.com, and Neiman Marcus stores nationwide and www.neimanmarcus.com.

neuLash® should be applied once daily in the evening before bedtime to the base of the upper eyelash on a clean, dry area, starting from the inner corner of the eye to the outer corner. It is made for both men and women, and it can be used by those who have eyelash extensions and contact lenses.
