NEW ARRIVALS

DANESSA MYRICKS- EVOLUTION POWDER TRIO

This unique powder was designed in the studio under the scrutiny of professional photography, beauty illumination and state of the art technology to ensure it absorbs oil, sets makeup, reduces shine, and minimizes texture with skin blurring technology. Can be applied with a brush, or sponge on top or underneath foundation. Kit and travel friendly!

SENNA- BROW FIX X (NUDE BLONDE)

Hydrating, smooth gliding formula has conditioning Chamomile and Allantoin to strengthen brow hair, add healthy shine, and tame and soften course brows. Fine fibers plump and texturize for a fuller, thicker look. Unique precision brush delivers perfect payoff to coat and define individual brow hairs. Tints fill in sparse brows and cover light blonde or gray brow hairs while blending in with natural hair color. Gives all day hold and is water soluble to remove easily.

DANESSA MYRICKS DEW WET BALM (ROSEWATER)

A lightweight translucent highlighting & hydration balm for an instant “glass skin” fresh glow. Infused with jojoba oil and other hydrating and skin softening ingredients. Wear over makeup as an “instant filter” to soften and diffuse texture and the look of dry and cakey makeup. Wear alone as an instant hydrating/highlighting boost.

Get The Facts

According the the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among women aside from skin cancers. About 1 in 8 women in America will be diagnosed with breast cancer over their lifetime. Preventative lifestyle and early detection remain paramount, but even after a diagnosis, breast cancer survivorship has tripled over the last 60 years. Get more information below and stay proactive.
