Update from Holly! Mira -Curl


Babyliss Pro Nano Titanium Mira-Curl: I am not one to buy into infomercials or ads; however, when my hairdresser tried the Mira-Curl on me I was hooked—the world’s first fully automatic professional curl machine is truly a miracle tool. My hair is naturally curly but it usually needs to be tamed with some form of heat—blow dyer, curlers or a straightener to help with the frizz. I love wearing my hair curly but never have the patience for curlers, and, in turn, I resort to a straightener to help with my frizz; however, as we all know, this is the most damaging solution. On the occasion that I do use a curler or wand for my hair, I always end up crimping my hair or burning my neck, both unfortunate and unattractive outcomes. However, the Mira-Curl is now the solution to all my problems. The fully automatic feature creates the perfect curl without crimping or creasing your hair and the ceramic outside protects your neck from unsightly burns. I absolutely love the Mira-Curl! It is quick and easy to use and cuts the time to style my hair in half. It has various settings and temperatures depending on the curls you want and your type of hair. I have used it on all my friends—thick, straight, thin, and wavy hair—and each time it creates a perfect voluminous curl that lasts all night, no hair spray needed! Though the Mira-Curl is on the expensive side, it is an investment you will not regret. I promise, it is worth every penny. The Mira-Curl is without a doubt the best hair styling tool I have ever used and I will certainly be using it for many more years! 5 kisses for the Mira-Curl. $139.99 at overstock.com or $199.99 atfolica.com

GIVENCHY mascara gives your lashes a natural look

GIVENCHY Noir Couture Mascara: More and more I see women of all ages wearing a full-face of make-up, complete with big thick eyelashes. Honestly, when you're my age (or, 55+) this look simply does not flatter you. Givenchy has a great wand, the best applicator I have ever used. Three little balls in a row and two above it, I absolutely love the wand, as it’s perfect for reaching the key lashes on the corner of the eye. This lightweight mascara does not weigh your eyelashes down or make them feel heavy; instead, it generates a real natural lash appearance that is beautiful for women of all ages. Like all mascara’s, you have to wipe off the end of the wand to prevent clumps but I love the Givenchy mascara
and give it 5 kisses! $28.50 at Sephora or Nordstroms
