Hi does anyone know where Iman cosmetics are sold in the states.
Every macy's i go into say they used to carry it. and Ulta doesn't have the product I'm looking for.

I'm looking for the "lip corrector" it helps to even out 2 toned lips like mine. Darker top lip, pinkish botom lip.

Any help or alternatives to attain an even/nude look?

Drugstore.com carries it but I didn't see the lip corrector on their site. Have you tried just filling in your lips with a pencil. Wet n Wild used to make a pinkish brown one (I forgot the which number pencil it was) that I just loved. It was perfectly neutral for my skin tone and cost all of .99.

hmmm ok, I can try that. cos trust even the places I found that carry iman they don't have that product.

sorry if this is a silly question but with the pencil are you looking for a shade to match the top lip or bottom lip?
You said the pencil is pinkish brown but which colour is more "dominant"?

I'd say my lips are more brown but get more pinkish towards the center where both lips meet, so I try to "match" the brown skin.

Have you tried mixing your foundation with a touch of clear gloss or lip balm?

There is a product called Lip Erase from M.A.C but last I checked, it's only sold at their pro stores. It's a great product.

Article on Sam Fine and makeup for skin of color in the latest Vogue. I don't agree with some of his tips but it is an interesting read nonetheless.

Does anyone know any places in Canada, the states or online that sell Black Up? I bought their under eye concealer when I was in Paris and I love it! Thanks

Vanessa Williams' Health and Beauty Tips

Quote:
Yoga teacher:“Helena Mertens, formerly of Westchester Center for the Arts and now at Women for Fitness in Bedford.”

Nutrition strategies:“I have my food delivered to me in L.A. by Chef Paola Petrella. It’s low-fat, high-fiber, and loaded with flavor and variety. In New York, I shop organically at Mrs. Green’s, limit my sugar, try to avoid starches and refined carbs. Juicing is also a great way to start the day: carrot, celery, and beet with lemon and ginger.”

Skincare regimen:“I use Proactiv Deep Cleaning wash and toner, Mario Badescu eye cream, and Mila Moursi moisturizing oil.”

Hair: “A bit of a shocker, but I do get my hair relaxed at Sears at the Galleria Mall in White Plains. I have followed my stylist, Anetta, from JC Penney to Bloomingdale’s and now to Sears. It’s almost always open, and someone is almost always available at the last minute.”

Nails:“I go to Ana’s Nails on King Street in Chappaqua. She’s warm, inviting, and a master at mending a broken nail.”

Massage:“Nordic Therapy Spa on Route 120/Bedford Road in Chappaqua gives a great deep-tissue massage in a relaxing atmosphere.”

Waxing:“For anyone adventurous enough, Shine Salon on Main Street in Ossining gives the best Brazilian.”

Recent read: “The best book of the summer was Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert.”

Tech gadget:“I can’t function without my BlackBerry. I have all my contacts, school schedules, appointments, and photos on it. It’s the way I stay in touch with my nanny, assistant, and kids. It’s life changing.”
s: Westchester Magazine

I must admit, knowing her history with acne and oily skin, I am intrigued by Perfekt Skin Perfecting Gel. Has anyone here ever tried it?

Perfekt Skin Perfecting Gel.
I went to Sephora and got a samples. The tiny tub they gave me has lasted quite awhile since I only use the gel under my eyes and on my nose. The clear variety doesn't do much for me but the one I got in "rich" is really quite nice. It lightens the dark circles around my eyes and reduces the appearance of my pores. It has that velvety silicone feel to it. I would buy it in a heartbeat if it wasn't so pricey.
