About a month ago, I was introduced to this new to me line of cosmetics, Jouer Cosmetics. Jouer (dzou-way) means “to play” in French. Jouer Cosmetics, the top French makeup line made its Dallas debut last September and is exclusively available at my fave beauty lounge, Blushington. I just had to see for myself, this new line of chic makeup. And of course, the French Fête hosted by Blushington Dallas to celebrate the launch, made my visit extra special.
Jouer Cosmetics is right up my alley. If you know me, I usually wear a “simple” or “natural-looking” makeup. My go-to eye shadow is almost always in the taupe, bronze, or brown shade. My blush is always in the peachy, coral, or apricot shade. And if I want to add some color, it would most likely be just on my lips. But for a day-to-day look, my lips are always sporting a natural peachy or light pink shade. I’ve been using that mini Jouer lip gloss more and more recently and couldn’t wait to share with you a fun beauty look using these products. But for now, here’s how my Blushington makeup artist did my face. Note, I only asked for the eyes (eye shadow) and blush since I was in a rush to go to another event the same night. More photos later below at the event.
What I love about Jouer is that their shades are very flattering and give off that romantic vibe to it. Second thing I love about this makeup line is the packaging. Those square containers snaps and slides unto each other so you can bring them all together or customize your own palette. How fun is that? Now a product to note is the Jouer “Luminizing” Tinted Moisturizer, an Allure Beauty awardee. I haven’t tried it out myself but I heard good things. Hoping to test it out in the future.
Well, stay tuned for that beauty look post using Jouer Cosmetics. For now, here are photos from the launch event over at Blushington Dallas. Stay pretty!
Piermarini Boutique recently expanded and redesigned their Snider Plaza store to include a full line of cosmetics and skin care under the Piermarini umbrella. A few weeks ago, I got the chance to meet with the owner, John Piermarini, to view and try the latest beauty collection from the brand.
Bellacures is the latest hip nail salon to land in Dallas, Texas. It has several locations in California but has since expanded to the Lone Star State – at the Preston Center to be exact. They recently opened this June of 2014 and are planning their Grand Opening this August. You have to keep an eye for that because I hear it’s going to be ahh-mazing! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get on the guest list! So anyway, I was invited to get my nails done just in time for my big night at the Tootsies Dallas Top Blogger 2014 Finale. Of course I said YES! So let me give you a tour of the place and my feedback about their service below.
One to cross off my “Blogger Bucket List”. That’s how I think about the Tootsies Dallas Top Blogger 2014 Finale. To be able to get such recognition as a finalist and be able to style a mini-fashion show because of this blog – it’s a dream come true for me. Words cannot express my gratitude.
Today, I’m sharing with you our delicious experience at P.F. Chang’s. You probably noticed I’ve been posting a lot about P.F. Chang’s on my social media. Well that’s because they rolled in a new menu! For the first time, they are introducing hand-rolled sushi as well as inventive small plates and handcrafted cocktails – first and only in the Dallas Fort Worth metro! These new menu items are perfect for Happy Hour. Are you ready to drool???
The DFW Boat Expo is back this summer and we’re told there will be a lot of great deals in store for you. The DFW Boat Expo Summer 2014 is being held this July 11-13 and July 18-20. If you love the water and fancy a boat someday (or soon), this is the place to be. The DFW Summer Boat Expo is the largest boating event in North Texas. So if you’re boat-hunting, you wouldn’t wanna miss this! I, for one, would love to own one someday… but it doesn’t hurt to check them out and get acquainted with my future boat, right? 🙂
Hey guys, it’s Irene here. Last Saturday, I had brunch with the Susan G. Komen Dallas Headquarters team at Blue Mesa Bar and Grill. We talked about the upcoming Susan G. Komen event. The Susan G. Komen 3-Day is a three-day, 60-mile walk that is nationally managed by Komen Headquarters. No other breast cancer event in the country asks you to walk as far or raise as much money as the Susan G. Komen 3-Day. Coming to Dallas/Fort Worth on November 7-9, 2014, the Komen 3-day is a 60-mile walk for women and men who want to be a part of something bigger – ending breast cancer forever.
