The Hair Color of My Dreams

pastel pink hair color

Sorry to say that BEOC has been on a bit of a hiatus. Our lives became more hectic when Carrie welcomed a third child into the world and when my family decided to pick up and move. And while we hate to admit that life has gotten in the way of our passion — beauty, and talking about it endlessly — it simply has. We will be back in action again soon, we promise, but until then, here’s a quick photo of the hair color I dream of — pastel pink. If I weren’t lacking in the cool department, the mother of a two-year-old and working in an office full time, I’d so try this. It’s soft, pretty and edgy at the same time. Love.

Would you try a pastel hair color? If so, would you go pick or try another hue?

Reader Rave: It Cosmetics Brow Power & Vitality Lip Flush

It Cosmetics Brow Power and Lip Vitality FlushOur second installment of reader raves (see the facial scrub that was yesterday’s fave) is for two It Cosmetics products. The It Cosmetics Brow Power, $24 and  It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush, $20. Here’s why …

“My two favorite products right now are both from the It Cometics brand. The Brow Power pencil creates a fuller-looking brow without appearing fake and painted on. And the other product is a lip conditioner called Vitality Lip Flush. It is a pale pink, which gives me a very natural-looking lip for those of us who have lost all color in our lips due to age. Awesome products!” — Jan

Reader Rave: Goldfaden MD Doctor’s Scrub

All this week I’ll be featuring the beauty products that you, my gorgeous readers, covet and just can’t live without.

First up: Goldfaden MD Doctor’s Scrub, $75

“I’m loving the Doctor’s Scrub. It feels like I’ve just had a facial every time I use it! If my skin weren’t so so sensitive, I would use it everyday. I also love the gritty texture (the ruby crystal) it actually feels like it’s working as I’m scrubbing. Also, you can’t beat a natural product! Perfection!” — Colleen

French Manicure Friday: The Only French You’ll Catch Me Wearing

Non Traditional French Manicure

My least favorite nail look ever has got to be the classic French manicure. Sure, I’m guilty of having worn the look in the early ’90s, but in my opinion, that decade is where it should have stayed. But, add some non traditional French manicure colors to the classic design and you get a look that’s totally fresh and so much more fun. To get this look I used Essie Nail Polish in After School Boy Blazer, $8.50 as the base and Flower Beauty in Thistle or That?, $4.98 on the tips. It’s by far garnered the most compliments of any nail look I’ve ever worn. Definitely worth a repeat.
