Lipstick League: What Do You Buy and Rebuy?



Question of the Week: Quick, name three makeup products that you’ve repurchased multiple times.
This is a hard one. I've probably purchased these three things more than once:

Buxom Sugar Lip Polish: still one of my favorite glosses of all time.
RevitaLash Advanced: keeps my lashes long!
Living Proof Restore Instant Repair Repairing Lotion: restored my hair after going blonde.

What do you purchase and re-purchase? I want to know!

If I don't answer your questions quickly this week, it's because Loxy and I are celebrating our tenth wedding anniversary in Ireland! Follow our adventures on Instagram @ Gouldylox.

New Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash Is Downright Dreamy (+ A Contest!)


Sent for review. Purchased by me (cause I totally love it!).


I know it seems like every other month Dove is coming out with a new body wash formula. You know what? They kind of are. They are busy over there at the Dove factory, thinking up new ways to bring amazing skin into your shower. They even have a challenge going on NOW to prove to you that this is their best formula yet!



I had previously thought the good old nutrium moisture wash was pretty fantastic. I love hot showers, but they're deadly for dry skin, That body wash allowed me to take my hot shower and not pay for it with the itchy-skritchies all day.


But now, now there is something new on the block. Deep Moisture Body Wash is an all new concoction. Not just relabeled and slightly tweaked. This is a completely new product. Don't let the similar bottles confuse you.



Take a look! Here are the ingredients in both bottles:


If you have dry, itchy, tight skin, this is going to be like sliding into a really luxe silk top. It feels so, so nice!



Try it for yourself and let me know what you think! Dove Deep Moisture Wash is available everywhere Dove is sold and retails for less than $9.



 Take the One Shower Challenge and see if your skin isn't feeling better after just one shower. Grab a coupon and tweet your results! You'll be entered to win a fabulous prize from Dove!


Want instant gratification? Enter to win this necklace from Dove! Just follow the Rafflecopter directions below!

Hair In a Hurry: Hair2Wear by Christie Brinkley


Is your hair feeling thin, lackluster or short? Lucky girl, you are living in the best time ever for hair extensions! Sure you can pay one thousand or more dollars for hair extensions that are semi-permanent (I've had them and while amazing, they aren't as versatile as you think).



For less than an Urban Decay Naked Palette, you can add a 16" clip in hair extension from Hair2Wear by Christie Brinkley. It's really easy. You section the hair above your ears (or wherever you'd like to attach the piece) and clip up and out of the way. Then you attach the middle clip to the middle of the exposed part in the back of your head. Next, you attach the two sideways clips, which are a little different from a standard extension. If your hair is fine, be sure to tease the roots a bit to give the clips something to hang on to.



That's it! One extension, less than two minutes to attach and you've got supermodel hair! But will it look convincing? There are a few easy steps to make sure your hair can pass.

1. Pick a color that actually matches your hair. This is usually the hardest part of selecting your extension. Hair2Wear allows you to borrow a color ring to make sure you are getting the perfect match. You can not color these extensions, as they aren't made of real hair.

2. Consider your hair texture. Obviously, if your natural texture is curly, picking a straight extension isn't going to work. If your hair is generally smooth with a touch of waves (curling-ironed or otherwise), these will work. If your hair is super thick or textured, you may want to look elsewhere. The hair in the extension I tried looks like supermodel hair.

3. If you have extremely thick hair, you may want to buy two extensions and stack them. I have very thick hair and often have to wear two sets of extensions if I let my hair air dry. If I have a professional looking blowout, then one extension does just fine.

4. Do not use heat tools on your hair. The hair will melt! The fun part about hair like this is that with regular care, the color and style will not fade! It's always ready to go, no muss, no fuss.



I love popping in hair like this for a fun night out, a fuller style or to feel like the glam gal I like to be (sometimes). It seems to blend really well with my natural hair and texture. It's really easy and a great option if you need runway hair in less than two minutes. It's perfect for all of the holiday parties that pop up this time of year!


I'm wearing medium golden blond. Grab one of the eleven colors for yourself for $49 from Hair2Wear.com.

Makeup Wars: Best Fall Lips and Polishes

Purchased by me. Contains affiliate links. 


This week, Makeup Wars is all about the lips and the tips. I'm not so hot when it comes to polish, but one of my greatest weaknesses is my adoration for all things lip color. This fall, lips are all about the nudes, the reds and the berries.



Nude colors are the shade on the red carpet. Picking a nude isn't always so easy. Be sure to match your undertones when choosing your perfect nude.

For nudes, try:
Summer Angel by Rimmel, Armani Rouge Ecstasy 202 and Buxom Sugar Lip Polish

Plums and berries are universal fall colors and one of the most flattering shades on everyone. You really can't go wrong! For fall, try a berry shade with a hint of blue or red.

For berries, try:
Preview ColorStay Ultimate Suede by Revlon, #15 Rose Vinyl ROUGE PUR COUTURE Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain by YSL, I Believe Lip Flush Butter Gloss by It Cosmetics 

Who doesn't love a beautiful red for the evening? Or go light on the eyes and pick a matte reddish orange and create your own signature look.

For reds, try:
Hourglass Icon Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick, #8 MUFE Aqua Rouge, Rioja by Bite Beauty
