I’m usually the one to tell my friends about new beauty products they have to try. The other day, however, I was on the receiving end. My girlfriend discovered Le Metier de Beaute Cosmetics at Neimans and fell in the love with the makeup. She asked me if I’d tried it before, but I hadn’t. Then the stars aligned. The very next day I got an email from the company’s lovely public relations person introducing me to the brand. They sent me a package of products to try — one of the perks of my job.
Le Meteir de Beaute is definitely high end. Prices start at $28 for blush and go up from there. The makeup feels, wears and looks like it’s worth every penny, which is why I’m such a fan. The textures are superb, soft and blend beautifully. The makeup is so versatile. I’ve worn it on date night and at my son’s first b-day party. As you know, I love to share my finds with you. So, I’m giving away 5 of my favorite Le Meteir de Beaute products totaling a whopping $202
!!! Better yet, 3 people will get to win
so spread the word. To find out how to enter this giveaway and see what’s up for grabs… Read More

I had the chance to interview Private Practice
star Kate Walsh, who happens to have her own beauty company. Who knew?! There are a gazillion celebrity fragrances out there, but Kate’s is different. She didn’t just slap her name on a juice that a big fragrance house concocted. She came up with the idea for her fragrance Billionaire Boyfriend, created her own company and launched the scent this year. I found out what’s really behind the name as well as her other beauty secrets like how she keeps her skin in check after all of those hours on set.
Better yet, I’m giving two people the chance to win a bottle of Billionaire Boyfriend ($75)
