This week, Cindy of Prime Beauty is hosting Fashion Flash. I am in the middle of Budget Beauty series so I’ve become a huge fan of Prime Beauty’s Frugal Friday feature. This week she featured a tempting palatte of eye shadows made even more tempting at half price. Cindy has also started to feature great holiday gift sets including Kiehls’s Creme de Corps Holiday Collection with 100% of sales going to children’s causes around the world and Tarte Baby it Bold Outside blush or lip gloss sets.
IMO Prime Beauty has awesome recommendations for fragrances. On her recommendations I have tried ( and loved) new brands and old favorites like Jo Malone and Anik. I also rely on Cindy for eval of hair products. I can decode a wall full of moisturizers, when it comes to hair products, I freeze. Prime Beauty provides need to know info on shampoos and styling mousee that has helped me get the look I was looking for.
