Monday is the perfect day to pamper yourself with an express manicure at home! Get your nails ready for the week with some of our favorite picks from Deborah Lippmann.
Step One: Cuticle Care
Exfoliate your hands, focusing on the cuticle area, with the Marshmallow Hand & Cuticle Scrub, a unique whipped hand scrub that combines AHA and BHA fruit and plant acids along with Perlite – a biodegradable volcanic ash – to lift dead skin cells and clear pores revealing a brighter, glowing skin. The cooling and soothing properties of Marshmallow Root Extract help calm irritated skin while Glycerin and Coconut Oil deeply moisturize. We also love the the creamy marshmallow scent!
Next, hydrate and soften your cuticles with the Cuticle Oil by Deborah Lippmann, made with vitamin E, jojoba and coconut oils. The luxurious formula works fast and absorbs quickly, leaving no greasy residue. Follow with The Cure ultra nourishing cuticle repair cream, packed with patented raspberry stem cell extract, red algae, shea butter, sodium hyaluronate and vitamins A, C and E, this nourishing cream instantly relieves dry cuticles as it repairs and protects.
For extra pampering, indulge in a total revitalizing overnight treatment: apply Cuticle Oil to soften and hydrate, then follow with The Cure to deeply condition, nourish and protect while sealing in moisture. Allow to penetrate overnight for baby soft cuticles come morning.
Step Two: Correct & Conceal Base Coat
Prime and prep your nails with All About That Base, a correct and conceal base coat. Multi-tasking CC formula provides 10 nail treatment benefits and immediate nail perfecting coverage in one! Special hydrating complex with Panthenol helps moisturize, strengthen and protect the look of nails while treatment correctors help conceal imperfections, brighten, prime and fill ridges for a smooth, matte, flawless finish with improved wear.
Step Three: Gel Lab Pro Color
Get the gloss of a gel mani without stepping into the salon with the Gel Lab Pro Polish. Its innovative contour brush features 320 bristles to evenly coat each nail for a smoother finish, and it has a rounded tip that follows the nail shape for easy application. Bringing together the technology of Gel Lab Pro with a nail color, this dual-patented formula is enriched with 10 active ingredients to help deliver the gloss and cushion of a gel mani without the damage.
Step Four: Fast Drying Top Coat
Set your color polish with the Addicted to Speed top coat and you’ll be out the door in a flash! This high-shine top coat dries fast so you can go about your business without a smear, smudge or scratch.
When it comes to creating the perfect pout, there are a few beauty products we are obsessed with! Sara Happ’s lip scrub & sweet clay mask, Epionce’s Anti-Aging Lip Renewal, Jouer’s liquid lipsticks and creme liners…are just a few of our favorites. Keep reading to learn how to create the most beautiful and kissable lips! XO
Step One: Exfoliate
Exfoliating your lips is essential to creating the perfect pout! You get the best wear out of your lip color when your lips are soft and smooth. In the words of Sara Happ, “Once skin is free of the dead cells that dull its appearance and block absorption, product can sink in and do its job.” The Lip Scrub by Sara Happ is the perfect (and yummiest) way to eliminate dry, flaky skin. Simply massage the sugar scrub in a firm, circular motion every few days to reveal soft and supple lips. One tip is to keep The Lip Scrub in your shower so you remember to use it often. Sara Happ has scrumptious flavors to choose from such as vanilla bean, brown sugar, pink grapefruit, and more!
Step Two: Lip Mask
After exfoliating, it’s time to restore & hydrate your lips! We recommend using Sara Happ’s Sweet Clay Lip Mask several times a week for optimal results. The Sweet Clay Lip Mask combines the power of detoxifying Bentonite Clay and with self-regenerative stem cell technology of Swertiamarin, sourced from the Himalayas. It restores, soothes, hydrates and detoxifies your skin resulting in moisturized skin, a firmer pout, and reduction in the appearance of wrinkles. Slather it on like frosting and luxuriate in this pink, goopy goodness!
Step Three: Hydrate
Your lips lack oil glands. They’re thirsty! Hydrate your lips with Epionce’s Anti-Aging Lip Renewal, a powerful daily-use treatment formula designed specifically for the unique lip area. Soft-focus technology reduces the visible appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while revealing smoother, more hydrated lips.
For a hydrating treatment that can double as a clear gloss, we are obsessed with Jouer’s Essential Lip Enhancer, a nourishing and conditioning lip treatment containing Maxi-Lip™, an ingredient clinically proven to help naturally increase the fullness of your lips while decreasing fine lines. This ultra-rich lip moisturizer contains Vitamin E, Shea Butter, and Jojoba Oil to protect lips from environmentally damaging elements while providing lasting hydration.
Step Four: Plump & Prime
Sara Happ’s Plump & Prime Lip Airbrush primer is a true beauty breakthrough! Layer a generous amount of this velvety plumping primer onto lips. Your lips are now instantly full, hydrated, primed, and airbrushed. Wear alone as a perfectly sheer nude, or with color, which will last longer than you’ve ever imagined.
Step Five: Color
Now that you’ve exfoliated, restored, hydrated, and primed, it’s time to finish your pout with the perfect lip color! We love Jane Iredale’s Just Kissed Lip Plumper for a sheer wash of color. Julie Hewett‘s ultra pigmented lipsticks infused with camellia oil for a hydrating lipstick, and Jouer’s Long-wear Lip Creme liquid lipsticks for color that lasts from morning to night!
P.S. Sara Happ’s Perfect Pout in a Box set will be arriving this week to Blush! The set includes a Caramel Latte Lip Scrub, The Lip Slip hydrating treatment, and The Sweet Clay Lip Mask. The entire set is only $58, valued at $78!

JOUER (pronounced zhew-ay) means ‘to play’ in French and although playful in nature, Jouer’s products has formulas filled with serious skincare ingredients neatly tucked away in effortless colors surrounded by ingenious packaging. Founder, Christina Zilber – a busy mom of two – says, “I wanted every product to do double duty. I like to say it is ‘beauty with skincare included.’” Yes, please!!

Jouer just launched their High Pigment Lip Gloss – think lipstick and gloss in one!

Summer is officially here!!! Season changes are a great time to refresh your makeup routines and update your makeup bag. One of our favorite looks for summer is that barely there, healthy matte look with just a touch of color on the cheeks and lips. This is a look you can achieve in no time with just a few products. See our beauty breakdown below!
Step One: Skincare Prep & Sunscreen
We all know the importance of using extra SPF in the summertime. Our favorite multipurpose sunscreen is the Ultraluxe MicroVenom Face & Body SPF 30 because this genius product can double as a moisturizer AND you can apply to both your face and body. It applies like a dream – no stickiness, white streaks or sunscreen smell! If your skin runs dry, we recommend prepping with a lightweight moisturizer such as the Hydrasoft Maintenance Lotion by Ultraluxe.
Step Two: Tinted Moisturizer Foundation
Jouer’s Matte Moisture Tint is one of our best-selling foundations year round and it is especially great for the summertime! This lightweight mattifying moisture tint evens out imperfections and leaves your skin with a velvety smooth finish with its Multi-Mineral Complex. SPF 15 protects from UVA & UVB rays while Vitamins C & E deliver rich antioxidants to the skin.
Step Three: Lightweight Powder & Hydration Spray
For this barely-there matte look, we recommend setting your foundation with a light dusting of Jane’s Pressed Powder to set your matte moisture tint. You can also use this pressed powder as a foundation over your moisturizer for light coverage. To lock your powder in place, we’re going to set it with a misting hydration spray. This adds an extra layer of hydration and is great for refreshing your skin while traveling or on hot summer days.
The Revitalash Hi-Def Tinted Brow Gel is our go to for a quick and easy polished brow. This mineral tinted brow gel fills in the sparse places, shapes and holds unruly brows in place. You’ll love it!
Jane Iredale Smooth Affair for Eyes is our new favorite for an easy, soft shimmering eye. These cream to powder eyeshadows also double as an eyeshadow primer for powder shadow. They have recently been reformulated and are now available in 6 shades.
Step Six: Lips
Jane Iredale’s Just Kissed Lip & Cheek Stain is perfect for summer – it is available in 3 shades and offers a lip tint with intense hydration. It mixes with your own unique chemistry to create the perfect lip stain for your skin tone! In a hurry? Use it on your cheeks as a cheek stain!
We hope this summer makeup breakdown gave you some great inspiration! All products can be purchased on our online shop or at our boutique in Downtown Boise, Idaho. As always, we are here to assist with you – please call us at 208-433-9393 with any questions!
The 2017 Pantone Color of the Year is Greenery! According to FORBES online magazine, “Greenery signifies beginnings: a fresh New Year; healthier food resolutions and growing vegetarian trends; grass and the outdoors during spring and summer.” The color also symbolizes a draw towards nature and honoring our environment.
Laurie Pressman, the Pantone Color Institute’s vice president, told to FORBES, “There’s a growing desire to reconnect with Nature and what is real, and find ways to disconnect from technology. We need a break. We need to stop and breathe, Greenery is about unity and community—connecting to oneself and others and a higher purpose, nature.”
We think this color is special because it invokes a calming and comforting feeling, while rejuvenating your spirit at the same time. We hope you feel inspired to incorporate Greenery into your life through fashion, beauty products, and decor this season! Enjoy the inspiration we have pulled together from some of our favorites!
Jane Iredale Lemongrass Love Hydration Spray

I don’t know about you, but in my perfect world, a bubble bath with a glass of champagne would be a daily reality. Honestly, I’m convinced I’d be a much better version of myself if that were the case!
In the words of our beloved Lucille Ball, “Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.” Sweetheart, we know you. You take care of everyone else before you take care of yourself. And you are loved, appreciated, and adored for that. Life gets busy and it’s good to be reminded that it’s important to love yourself well. And as the holiday season approaches (yes I said it!), make it a priority to take some time for yourself. You need it to recharge and maybe you will find out it really does help you become your best self!
