Fashion Flash Beauty and a Book Giveaway!



With Valentine’s Day coming up I have a fantastic and romantic giveaway for you! New York Times Bestselling author, Kristin Higgins book if you only knew is a funny, frank and bittersweet look at sisters, marriage and moving on. Plus a classic red nail polish and lipstick from Makeup America! You’ve probably heard the popular quote from Gwyneth Paltrow: “Beauty to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.” Makeup America has that kiss-ass red lipstick!

Letting go of her ex-husband is harder than wedding-dress designer Jenny Tate expected…especially since his new wife wants to be Jenny’s new best friend. Needing closure, Jenny trades the Manhattan skyline for her hometown up the Hudson, where she’ll start her own business and bask in her sister Rachel’s picture-perfect family life…and maybe even find a little romance of her own with Leo, her downstairs neighbor, who’s utterly irresistible and annoyingly distant at the same time.

Rachel’s idyllic marriage, however, is imploding after she discovers what looks like her husband’s infidelity. She always thought she’d walk away in this situation but now she’s wavering, much to Jenny’s surprise. Rachel points to their parents’ perfect marriage as a shining example of patience and forgiveness; but to protect her sister, Jenny may have to tarnish that memory—and their relationship­—and reveal a family secret she’s been keeping since childhood.

Both Rachel and Jenny will have to come to terms with the past and the present and find a way to help each other get what they want most of all. #lovekristan

Makeup America! has the cutest most patriotic packaging with what’s inside being equally good. The brand also has a unique social purpose: paying down the U.S. national debt.  Their patriotic-themed products are long wearing, and exude the American Spirit by being cruelty-free, paraben-free, non-GMO, and suitable for all skin tones. A dollar from the sales of each and every Makeup America! beauty product goes towards helping the $19 trillion National Debt of the United States of America. No matter what your political affiliation, I know we can all agree it’s an important cause! Now you can be doing good while looking good!

The brand has cleverly priced their nail polishes at $13.76 each, in honor of the 13 original colonies. There are 10 lipsticks priced at $17.76, in honor of America’s Declaration of Independence. I have Independence Red Nail Polish topped with Oh Say Can You See base and top coat. I love this classic yet wearable red and the shine I get from the top coat. I’m also impressed with the wear–I’m on day 5 and no chips or wear in sight!

Independence Cream Lipstick is a warm red that is creamy and long wearing. It’s infused with rich luxe pigment and moisturizers containing Vitamin E and Aloe so it’s not drying. And how adorable is this packaging?
