BGLU Beauty News- Toya

Kiehls has come out with a wonderful new line called The Ultra Facial Oil Free Collection.  It's a line of oil free products (moisturizer, cleanser and toner) for oily skin and I'm pretty crazy about it.  I have oily skin and it's easy to want to skip applying moisturizer in fear that you will look like a greaseball come midday. I am always looking for a good moisturizer and I am happy to say that I found one in this new line.  Does anyone else use Kiehl's? If so, what is your favorite product?  They just came out with a new eye cream that I am dying to try.

I've found my red lipstick! I've found my red lipstick!

MAC has come out with a new red this season called Runway Red and it is truly the red I have been looking for.  The problem is that it is a part of there MAC Me Over Collection and isn't a permanent part of their line!  I was a die hard Ruby Woo fan but that matte texture was drying my lips out even with lip balm underneath. The texture of this lipstick is just right and it's long lasting.  I LOVE this color!

Please excuse the lighting in this picture as this looks like went tanning with a towel over my face for an hour.  MAC please don't discontinue this color.  Every girl needs a tried and true lipstick.  Do me a solid and let me keep mine.  Is there a lipstick that you just can't do without?

And speaking of red lipstick, the woman that inspired me to rock it this year, June Ambrose, is FINALLY getting her own show.  Her long overdue show is tentatively titled The June Ambrose Project and is set to air on VH1 early 2012. I can't wait! If you've seen her Youtube videos you know she already has what it takes to have her own show.  Hopefully this will be the first of many television opportunities for her.  We wish you the best June!

Finally, Melissa Watkins of Fab Glance has started a blog called Natural in Nashville and I am a contributing writer!  I will weekly be posting my hair diary, product reviews, and interviews with some of Nashville's lovely natural beauties.  You can check it out at

That color looks wonderful on you! I just bought the Ruby Woo one but I haven't tried it yet. This is my 1st time buying red lipstick. (I'm a lip gloss girl) I wanted to try it for my vintage days so hopefully it'll look fly and not dry my lips too much. Annnnd I'm rambling.. but I love your blog btw! :)
