True Beauty Tuesday: Gold Label Cosmetics

Gold Label

 

I am always do the happy dance when I find gluten-free items especially beauty brands. I have been on the hunt for gluten-free brands that embrace women of color for what seems like forever! I don’t think that it is my chance that I found Gold Label Cosmetics du ring the season of miracles. I just wished that I would have found them before my trip to New York City a few weeks ago. I would have rocked their lipsticks because well….HELLO! they look wonderful! One thing that I love is that they show the lipsticks on very different skins tones. This is a plus for me because as any woman of color knows what looks good on one skin tone can be a hot mess on another.

As I scrolled down their Twitter page and website I saying “Yes” and “I need this one too”.

Be sure to check my this evening on our sister site Loving Hue & Your Style for my personal style picks.

This is the time of year that most people are running around trying to get the best deals to give the best gifts, but how about giving a gift that will last all year (and maybe beyond). We think about The day after Christmas Shopping, We sit in front of the computer for Cyber Monday and a few years back we were introduced to Giving Tuesday. I was traveling on Tuesday, (be sure to check out my upcoming Monday post) and in my travels I was reminded of giving at every stop.  During this holiday season I will be sharing various groups and organizations that will benefit from your giving. Stay tuned my feature will be this evening.

POPSUGAR

There is not turning back now. The holiday shopping season in in full swing and believe it or not you have less than 30 days to find a gift that will make a lasting impression.  If you are like most people you may have a hard time making a choice on that perfect gift. If you have a picky stylista/beauty lover on your shopping list you may want to try something different for them this year. Subscription boxes like the Must-Have box from POPSUGAR can very easily solve all you problem for the trend setter on your list.

Each month the person in your life will be gifted with amazing items. This month is a great example of the diversity that you will find in the Must-Have box from POPSUGAR. The November box was truly a gift of jewelry, home decor, festive holiday ideas, and eats, but that was just this month. The wonderful thing is it changes each month so it’s like Christmas day once a month and who doesn’t love that?. Check out my review from last month to see want was in the October box.

I have happily made use of every item in the November box. My personal favorite was the Oogie’s Gourmet Toffee Popcorn because it kept me moving during the start of the holiday season and it tastes amazing.

Web Window Shopping: Luxe by Mr. Bubble

Welcome back beautiful hues! Yesterday I introduced you to Luxe by Mr. Bubble. It’s our first in our holiday beauty and gift edition.  Today I want to share you will the products that my team and I had the wonderful pleasure of testing. Let’s begin with OMG!  Like I hinted to yesterday everyone was excited to try these products, but what I found just as interesting as the products was than  was the reaction of other people that didn’t know members of the team was using a new product. Everyone received nice complements about how wonderful their skin looked and smelled. Below are just a few of the reactions from the team.

Bubbletini Bath Bombs:  “Just what I needed…I felt like the bath bombs just bombed away my bad day.”

Shine On Lip Balm: “It’s easy to carry and easy to use.”

All Buttered Up Butter: “People keep telling me my skin has a glow and I love it hearing that!”

One of the things that I look for in our Web  Window Shopping series is a product that grabs my eye. The colorful pink, teal/green, and peach colors gently remind you of warmer days while offering you a reason to soak of the cozy feeling of the season. The other top factor in picking a brand for Web Window Shopping is of course the ease of getting the product. You can find the limited edition of  Luxe products by Mr. Bubble exclusively at Target. You can also find additional products at Ulta or on their website.

Be sure to check by for the Sunday Style edition to learn how you can experience these products in our first of the season holiday giveaway.

It’s that time of year.  The holiday shopping season. Our first True Beauty Tuesday holiday gift idea is from a company that we all know and love.

Every now and again you come across a product that not only amazes you, but everyone you share it with and in some cases even the people that you don’t share it with notice a change in your skin… When people talk about a positive change in your skin and only have great things to say about your new found “glow” You know that you have found a truly outstanding product. Sound to good to be true? Well, I’m being 100 with you. Over the last few months my team and I have been falling passionately in love with Luxe by Mr. Bubble. Yup, you read it correct Mr. Bubble…that childhood favorite that made bath time simply amazing. You can now enjoy the same feeling of bliss that you did from your younger days. If in all the holiday hustle and bustle you want to have a  truly nostalgic  moment I highly suggest Luxe by Mr. Bubble.  You are probably wondering why? Right? You are probably thinking that in the sea of beauty products  that women have to choose from this fall and holiday what makes this one so special.  The “Hue” team has been testing products since early fall and it’s now a week from Thanksgiving and the products that we tested have held true during the change of seasons.

The team and I test several products on women of different ages and backgrounds and everyone pretty much had the same reaction. “Where can I get these products?” If you are looking for some great products for the holidays for the woman in your life or as a gift for yourself stay tuned. Tomorrow we will dive into the products and how you can purchase them.
