Chad Visits Skin Bar & Paint in Little Falls, NJ

Chad had an amazing trip out to one of our favorite retailers Skin Bar and Paint in Little Falls, NJ. The owner, Jillyan, was the most gracious host and they had a fun evening with delicious Sangria to celebrate the warm weather, makeovers and a Spring makeup demo featuring our new Light Brights Lipsticks(link), which is featured in May Lucky!

Thanks to a particularly severe allergy season, many of the attendees were suffering from red, glassy eyes, so our famous Light and Dark Clarifier Pencils (link) were a big hit. Fun was had by all and Chad can't wait to visit again. If you are ever in Little Falls, please stop by and see Jillyan; she will take care of all your makeup needs and also provides amazing facials.

Embryolisse Miracle Creme

In Miami this past February we exhibited at the Makeup Show that is put on by The Powder Group where we discovered some wonderful products. One of them that garnered quite a bit of buzz amongst the make up artists was Lait Creme Concentre by Embryolisse. This multi functional product was being used as primer by the top artists and of course everyone had to have it. This month we are thrilled to be able to provide free samples of this Miracle Creme to all of our customers who order online!

"Lait-Crème Concentrè (24-Hour Miracle Cream) is a rich moisturizing lotion. This specially formulated lotion is quite versatile, throw it in your travel bag when you don't have enough space for numerous products. Our creamy lotion is really three products in one: it cleans, moisturizes, and reduces irritation after shaving. Massage into face and neck and rinse off with warm water to remove dirt and makeup. Apply to damp clean skin to seal in moisture before applying makeup. Smooth over legs after shaving to sooth irritated skin."

New! Light Brights Collection

What’s Old is New Again
Former Club Kids Bring Back 80’s DayGlo:
Three Custom Color Specialists Introduce
The LIGHT BRIGHTS Collection for Lips

When visiting a tradeshow recently, Trae Bodge, Scott Catto and Chad Hayduk, the “Three” in Three Custom Color Specialists, made a very exciting discovery – DayGlo powders! They initially thought of these shades as great additions to their color library to give a “pop” to certain discontinued shades they were reproducing. But, when experimenting with the colors, the Specialists realized that DayGlo fluorescents brought back fond memories of dancing the night away at their favorite New York City hotspots to Dee Lite with the likes of Ru Paul, Michael Musto, Dianne Brill, Leigh Bowery, Suzanne Bartsch and fashion designer Zaldy.

As unparalleled experts in the makeup industry, the former Club Kids transformed these outrageously bright colors into modern, playful and sheer moisturizing stains for the lips. All four of the shades are great for all skin tones and have names that evoke the nightlife of a totally awesome decade. Now available at $18.50 each at

NEW! Palladium – A hot pink flash of color fit for any rockstar

NEW! Limelight– Sweet and soft, a pinky peach that pops

NEW! Danceteria – Flirty coral for girls who just wanna have fun

NEW! Area– Juicy and bright, yet surprisingly wearable tangerine
