It’s here!

So my latest blog is up and running! You can find it at Makeup Etc.. I hope you’ll join me on my latest journey and tell your friends, too! It’s still in its beginning stage, so I don’t have a lot of content on it, yet, but I will be writing this week and sharing for you all to see. I am so happy to be starting not only 1, but 2, new phases in my life – Makeup Etc., and representing AVON. 2016 is shaping up nicely! I’d like to make the transition to Makeup Etc. as smoothly as possible, so follow me over there and see what new things I have in store for you. It will still include all of what you’ve come to love here at Lashes and Lacquer – skincare, makeup, nails, DIY, and product reviews. Makeup Etc. will have more of what you love.

Thank you, my lovely Lashes and Lacquer fans!

THE NEXT CHAPTER!

Good morning, lovies! You will never know how much I appreciate all of you following Lashes and Lacquer and reading about the products I’ve been trying and love. During my recent hiatus, I’ve started selling AVON (youravon.com/kyordy) and absolutely love it. But what I really want to share with you is that I am creating a new beauty blog for all of you to enjoy and I hope you will follow me there onto the next chapter! I have yet to decide on a name for the new blog, but once I do, I will post an update on here so you can join me! Until then, you can always refer to my past posts, some of which will be included in the new venture. Here’s to the next chapter!

|PRODUCT REVIEW: LAUREN B. BEAUTY ‘THE CHATEAU’|a

LAUREN B. BEAUTY 'THE CHATEAU'

LAUREN B. BEAUTY ‘THE CHATEAU’

Hi, everybody! Hope you’re making it through the week! Mine has been a busy one so far! As you saw before, I will be reviewing Lauren B. Beauty‘s ‘The Chateau’. I was very excited for them to so graciously send me this to swatch. I have always been pleased with the quality of polishes from this upstanding, earth-friendly company in Beverly Hills! All of their polishes are vegan, eco-friendly, and not tested on animals! All of their products are proudly made in USA, too 🙂

First, as you can see at the picture above, it is a beautiful, dark color for fall. It reminds me of a nice red wine! I used 2 coats of the Lauren B. Beauty ‘The Chateau’, and topped it off with Wet Paint ‘Top Coat Glaze’, another favorite of mine. Sorry you can see my cell phone reflection. Just shows how mirror-like the top coat is! 😉 What I really liked about ‘The Chateau’ is that it was very shiny even prior to the top coat addition. I do like using it anyway though because it will help prolong the color. Lauren B. Beauty does a great job at making long-lasting polishes, as it is, however!

While the prices are a little high, the colors are extraordinary and named after places in California, which is kind of neat! I really enjoy the selection and the fact that they hold out so well. I think I’m going to buy one of their nail care products soon since I love their polishes so much! Browse through it all here! Have a great Thursday, it’s almost the weekend!

|PRODUCT REVIEW: FORMULA 10.0.6 ‘THREE TIMES SUBLIME’|

'FORMULA 10.0.6 THREE TIMES SUBLIME'

‘FORMULA 10.0.6 THREE TIMES SUBLIME’

Okay, so I found ‘Formula 10.0.6’ at Ulta for only $6.99! Having never tried this brand, I figured why not? The packaging was very appealing to me, as well. Plus, it was buy one, get one half off, so I will have to review the other mask – ‘Pores Be Pure’ I bought soon! This particular mask claims, “Fromula Three Times Sublime is ideal for the busy socialite. It is the ultimate time saver and contains Pink Grapefruit, a subtropical citrus fruit that has an invigorating and uplifting fragrance to boost your mood and help cleanse. It also includes Jojoba beads to exfoliate, leaving you skin super smooth and ensuring you’ll never miss a moment with friends. So aside from Ulta.com’s spelling errors of the word Formula, you get the gist of it! The packaging also says it will help with stubborn blackheads, excess oil, and remove blemishes. The pink grapefruit, jojoba, and pomegranate REALLY give this a great smell.

First, I’ll start with the blackheads. While it did help make them less noticeable after gently using warm water and massaging the scrub-like mask off after 15 minutes (you can leave on 10-15 minutes), that subsided shortly after, and guess what? My blackheads are still there. They aren’t horrible, however, so I’m not complaining since it says to use this 1-3 times a week. If you use this and feel a heating sensation, that’s ok! It gets better with regular use. My skin is definitely smooth and helped the dry skin I complained about in the L’Oreal Hydra-Renewal post previously! I definitely recommend this and plan on checking out more of the Formula 10.0.6 line! Have you tried any of their products? Let me know what you think of them in the comments!

|INSTAGRAM COMING SOON!|

Well October flew by! I’m finally working on a Lashes and Lacquer Instagram page! You can go here if you’d like to follow, and I will follow back 🙂 I will keep adding to it today and hopefully get all of the pictures from the blog uploaded soon. I plan to have a new blog post today, so keep an eye out on here! How was your Halloween? I hope you had a great one and ate lots of candy and watched scary movies!

I did that, as well, and I finally signed up for Ipsy! I hear Urban Decay is in the Glambag this month, so I am super excited. I hesitated for several months and always ended up on the checkout page, until yesterday, I thought “What the heck, it’s only $10 a month.” The shipping is FREE and you can cancel anytime. Plus, the points you add up can be redeemed for products on their site. The discount for ipsy members to purchase single brand items or ipsy items is deeply discounted, so I’m definitely looking forward to that. Don’t wait like I did, join today! You can here. Let me know if you do! Remember, you can cancel anytime! Have a great Sunday!
