For Lips Only

I was just taking spring inventory of the Salon Vertigo cosmetics and fell in love all over again with the huge variety of lip colors and a delivery methods available.  All of my lipsticks are cruelty free, fragrance and preservative free, hypoallergenic and made in the USA. Here is a rundown of lip products and benefits from most coverage to least:


Luxury Matte Lipstick - Heavy on the pigment, low on shine, this lipstick has the longest wear and still glides on smoothly like a regular lipstick. Our most popular seller! Comes in 13 colors.

Micro Bubble Lipstick Creamy, long-lasting, feather resistant with a high pigment level.  Micro-bubble spheres continually release special conditioners that keep color looking fresh for hours. Comes in 9 colors. 

Luxury Lipstick - Creamy, lip plumping formula helps to minimize fine lines. Comes in 11 colors. 

Luxury Lipshine - Shine with a transparent tint and an SPF of 15.  Great for that "not made up" look. Comes in 6 colors


Liquid Lustre - Packed with color and glitter and gloss, plus plumping. WOW! 4 colors with a stick/brush applicator.

Super Gloss - Semi translucent color with vitamins A and E. Squeeze and smooth tube application comes in 8 colors.

LipToxyl Sheer - Sheer color gloss with super plumping power contains real diamond dust. Comes in 4 shades with a wand/stick applicator.

LipToxyl x3 - 3 times the plumping power with no tint. Wear alone or over another lip color.

Early Spring, Time for Renewal

Wow.  February was especially brutal this year.  While we had half a year of excruciating cold and snow LAST winter, it seemed that we were having no winter this year.  Until february - my birthday month is always unapologetically miserable.  Best to just hibernate, watch Netflix, eat warm gooey food and wait. Or take a vacation to Miami. Which is what I did...

Getting out of the mitten in winter is usually what I do in January every year by going to L.A. to visit one of my best friends for a long weekend of sun and r&r.  But it's NOT Miami, with it's wonderfully diverse people, never-ending beach culture and everglades experience.
This trip was my birthday gift from one of my very bestie girlfriends who has a condo down there.  Girl time for 5 days and water everywhere you go.  My favorite thing!

 My favorite outing was stopping by my alma mater (this one in South Beach) Vidal Sassoon for a new cut.  Nothing recharges my creativity like getting a new haircut, seeing the  new for 2015 styles and trying different products in my hair.  This motivation made me finish all of the idle projects to complete the salon move (thanks to Matt and Jim) after one year.  I have been keeping that motivation going with online education to refresh my spring offering for both cuts and colors.

Yet another redo of the logo.  I think this is THE one.

As you can see, I'm inspired to look at things differently after having a much needed getaway.  Proof that this needs to happen MUCH more often. In the meantime, on it's way to the salon soon:

Hope to see you soon in my chair!
