Too Faced Jarrod Blandino’s Sephora Story

Too Faced Jarrod Blandinos Sephora Story C11176 sm The very first time I ever heard the word Sephora was back in 1998 during our first few weeks that Too Faced was in business. Jeremy (the brains behind our brand) told me to throw on my best outfit–a Gaultier navy-and-cream striped military blazer and black, wide-leg Armani slacks with a white Christian Dior white t-Shirt and vintage Dr. Martin combat boots. (It was the 90′s people, don’t judge!)

He said we had a meeting with “THE” hottest beauty retailer in the world who was now ready to conquer the U.S. We flew up to San Francisco that morning and by the afternoon we were sitting in the middle of the Glamour Universe. As soon as we ascended the elevator and walked through the iconic black and white striped lobby, I felt drunk by all of the glitter, glamour, and fun! I was like a virgin who had been touched for the very first time! Pure, savage ecstasy! I was home. I swear, I had drool dripping down my chin, and I was rubber-necking through the entire meeting, one gleaming, new, and amazing cosmetic product after another. It was the Holy Grail of Glamour, and I was an instant devotee! Thank God Jeremy stayed “sober” enough to take the meeting.

We left that meeting in a fog of fab, not caring that we sat in center seats! I knew this was the beginning of something huge, and I was so grateful to be a part of it. The rest, as they say, is Cosmetics History! –Jarrod Blandino, Too Faced Too Faced Jarrod Blandinos Sephora Story 962483698086939179 2189914068283233740?l=blog.sephora

Removing Red Moles

If you’ve looked at your skin and seen that you have red moles, these are referred to clinically as cherry hemangiomas. These are especially tricky to remove, because they involve blood vessels and can bleed quite easily if you tamper with them.

Red moles on skin are not especially dangerous; however, they could be rather ugly and individuals want them eliminated for cosmetic reasons. Another type of red moles on skin are intradermal melanocytic nevi. These kinds of moles have some pigment and are more usually found on individuals who have fair skin, blue eyes and light hair.

The primary problem with red moles on the skin is the fact that if you scrape or bump them, they can bleed profusely because of the amount of blood vessels which are located close to the surface. Red moles on skin are often not cancerous, but if you ever have a question about the risk of skin cancer or a concern, you should consult your doctor.

The removal method for red moles on the skin is no different from the normal methods of mole removal. You can have them excised, removed with laser treatments, frozen off or you can use home remedies that you can purchase from your local pharmacy.

The single thing folks see as soon as they eliminate moles is that they feel more healthy and attractive. The issue with many over the counter treatments is that although they do provide a solution to the problem, the effects are seldom long lasting and moles can recur in months or years. Often when the moles come back, they tend to “spread” and multiply.

This, of course, isn’t the result that individuals really want when they attempt to eliminate moles. The mole removal cost involved in going to your doctor and seeking some sort of treatment can be very expensive, particularly if you have a lot of moles. There are natural remedies that are just as effective as surgical remedies and they do not leave undesirable scarring or cause undue pain.

If you’re trying to find a way to really Remove Moles without leaving behind any scars, then this is the moles remover you require. Click Here and in just 3 days you can clear your skin permanently.

Lookbook: NYC City Duet Eyeshadows, Limited Edition Summer 2010

NYC (New York Color) Cosmetics has recently stepped up to the plate in the drugstore cosmetics industry. Fortunately for their company and consumers alike, they have hit it out of the park, designing new collections put together by renowned makeup artists. The newest limited edition collection includes City Duet Eyeshadows, which are specifically designed for the Summer 2010 season. Included in this display were several eyeshadow duets in varying colors from fuchsia and purple to plain white and black for a smokey eye. The shades I purchased were, of course, in punchy, colorful citrus colors for the season. At $2.99 a pop, these eyeshadow duets do not disappoint. To see further photographs and a quick review,

NYC "Bowling Green" Eyeshadow Duet

  • Bowling Green boasts two gorgeous green shades of eyeshadow: a slightly shimmery lime green, and a matte forest green. I was instantly drawn to this duo because, well, greens are some of my favorite eyeshadow looks to do, and because I loved the combination of the playful lime green next to the intense pigment of the forest green.

NYC "Upper Zest Side" Eyeshadow Duet

  • Upper Zest Side is a duo of gorgeous citrus shades. An intense lemon yellow and a fiery orange is what caught my eye when I chose this eyeshadow duo. The shades remind me not only of citrus, but also of a beach sunset. Also, call me cheesy, but I love when cosmetics have kitschy names like this one.

So, of course, the million dollar question is, “How pigmented are these eyeshadows?” For $2.99 a duo, I was expecting flimsy, sheer color that simply didn’t pat down intensely. I was incredibly pleased with how much color each of these duo’s put out, and I would definitely go back for the other eyeshadow duo’s now that I know how pigmented they are. The colors are incredibly soft on your skin, as well. When used over an eyeshadow primer, these duo’s did not budge, crease, or sweat off my eyes for the entire day.

This limited edition collection of eyeshadows is also paired in a display with NYC lip glosses in varying candy-like shades. The entire Summer 2010 collection was designed by Mathew Nigara, a renowned makeup artist with years of experience in the film and fashion industry. Kudos to NYC for stepping up to the plate and turning heads in the drugstore cosmetics industry!

NYC Limited Edition Summer 2010 City Duet Eyeshadows retail for $2.99, and can be found at your local drugstore. The display I personally found was at my local Rite-Aid. To find a location nearest you, simply use the Where To Buy tool on their website .
