K logo

I am so excited to share with you today a luxury makeup brand, KROMA Makeup, based right here in sunny Florida!
KROMA means ‘color’ in Greek – founder & celebrity makeup artist, Lee Cristou, using her over 20 years of experience, has hand crafted all of the shades and personally made all of the organic formulas for the wide range of products KROMA has to offer. KROMA Makeup is ideal for any skin type/color and any age.

Be sure to follow KROMA on Facebook +Twitter + Instagram!

KROMA’s motto is NATURAL-TRENDY-LIMITLESS.
Be Radiant. The Essence pure natural botanicals and minerals, all organic.
The Philosophy is: make up with essential elements to moisturize, protect and enhance your skin. The Inspiration limitless color. The Experience the full spectrum of KROMA.

I had the pleasure of meeting Lee and her team back in December of last year. The team came in to our office and did all of the ladies makeup for our annual Christmas party.  (see post here)

Each month, I will feature a different product from KROMA, and give you my honest opinions on the product. This month I am featuring KROMA’s  Botanical Tinted Moisturizer, an absolute summer beauty must!

KROMA Tinted Moisturizers are botanical, oil-free, and contain SPF 20! Stays on and covers better than your traditional tints on the market.

I stopped by the studio (located just minutes from I4 in Maitland) last week to find my perfect color match, Mariah matched me to a shade called ‘nude’. KROMA has the capability in-house to completely create a new shade, just for you – if one of their existing shades does not match your unique skin tone perfectly.

After my consultation at KROMA’s adorable studio, I was so excited to try this new-to-me product! I am not one to like a heavily made up look – and like to feel like my skin can breath – even while wearing makeup. With that being said, I was so happy to discovery how truly lightweight this tinted moisturizer is! After testing out this product for over a week, I can say it is now a staple in my daily routine.

20150712_07331720150712_07342020150712_073502I have pretty fair skin, and was so happy with how well this shade matched my skin tone! Using 1 pump, I apply the lightweight, breathable tinted moisturizer formula all over my face using a sponge applicator. After the moisturizer has been applied,  I use concealer on any trouble spots and under eye circles, and finish with a very light dusting of my powder foundation. The staying power of this tinted moisturizer is outstanding, it also contains SPF to protect my skin from harmful UV rays! I love the illuminating effect this tinted moisturizer has on my skin. Perfect for all you on-the-go, out-the-door beauty babes, hiding little imperfections flawlessly!

Travel size tinted moisturizer (pictured above) is $30 and refillable for a 10% discount if you bring back the empty bottle.

KROMA was featured at the OSCARS, EMMYS, TV LAND AWARDS, KENTUCKY DERBY, INSTANT BEAUTY PAGEANT, MISS CALIFORNIA PAGEANT, I-VILLAGE, NEW BEAUTY & ORGANIC SPA MAGAZINES, THE BACHELOR, NY & MIAMI FASHION WEEK, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE!

Stay tuned to see which must-have KROMA product is featured next month!

Target Beauty Box

I have ordered a few of Target’s Beauty Boxes and thought I’d share my thoughts on the current two (mens and womens)! These boxes sell out quickly, so if you are considering ordering the next one for yourself, don’t wait!

Men’s Box (Father’s Day box)

20150608_140205

Cost: $5

The Products:

20150608_135833

Each box comes with an info card and a coupon good for $3 off a personal care department purchase of $15 or more! (Awesome!)

The Razor alone is almost double what the entire box costs, making it totally worth it for me! If you are a Red Card holder, your box will ship for FREE and you get an additional 5% off!

————————————————————————–

Women’s (Summer Beauty Box)

Cost: $7

The Products:

20150608_140115

This box also comes with a coupon for $3 off a beauty purchase of $15 or more at Target. I was super excited to open my box and see the lipstick and nail polish shades! Both colors I will definitely use! A beautiful red lipstick called “Gladiolus” (smells great!) and “Energetic Red” nail polish. It appears that it is a variation of Fekkai hair care products that people are receiving, I am already a HUGE fan of the one I got and have been using it for several months now – it makes my hair silky smooth.

Overall I am extremely pleased with both boxes, great value and products!

Project Juice – 1 day Cleanse

Project JuiceHappy Monday Friends! Today I started my first ever Juice Cleanse, and wanted to share with you my thoughts on the cleanse as well as the wonderful company who provided the juices to me, Project Juice.

You may be wondering, what is a Juice Cleanse?  A Juice Cleanse is viewed by many as an express ticket to wellness. Since the digestive system is not working to break down food while on a juice cleanse, benefits may be achieved more quickly than with other types of cleanses. Often used as a direct bridge to healthier habits, a raw juice cleanse is known to curb unhealthy cravings, reset your metabolism, flush out toxins and restore your best energy. 

WHAT IS A PROJECT JUICE CLEANSE?

Our certified organic cleanses are specially formulated to fuel your body with essential nutrients while simultaneously supporting your body’s own natural ability to detox. While juice cleansing with Project Juice, you flood your body with nearly 20 lbs of USDA certified organic produce per day, cold pressed into delicious juices that are filled with active enzymes and vibrant nutrition.

Project Juice is known for its superior flavor and quality. Each cold pressed, certified organic juice feeds your body on a cellular level, encouraging a full body reset with every sip. A juice cleanse offers a convenient solution if you are looking to revitalize your system through real food nutrition. While there are many options to choose from for a juice cleanse today, Project Juice stands apart as one of the only USDA certified organic juice cleanse options on the market. When looking for a juice cleanse that is right for you, it is important to understand the importance of choosing an organic juice cleanse, as juices pressed with conventional produce could introduce a potentially harmful amount of toxic pesticides into your body. At Project Juice, we work diligently to source local ingredients from best in class USDA certified organic growers. Our cold pressed juices are also certified by the Non-GMO project. We take these extra steps of certification, so you can enjoy our juice cleanse with confidence that you are feeding your body the best organic juice in the world!

I selected the Seasonal Reset Juice Cleanse, which contained one of each of the following:

  •  :Kale, Romaine, Spinach, Celery, Cucumber, Green Apple, Lemon.
  •  :Pomegranate, Orange, Young Coconut Water.
  •  :Kale, Romaine, Spinach, Celery, Cucumber, Green Apple, Ginger.
  •  :Lemon, Pure Filtered Water, Raw Agave, Cayenne.
  •  :Cucumber, Kale, Spinach, Romaine, Celery, Green Apple.
  •  :Cashew, Pure Filtered Water, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Vanilla, Raw Agave.

My Juices were shipped via overnight FedEx delivery, nicely packaged with 4 ice packs to ensure freshness. **PROJECT JUICE IS CURRENTLY OFFERING FREE SHIPPING ACROSS THE US!!**

I was most excited about the Pomegranate Orange Juice, Cayenne Lemonade, and Cashew Mylk. I had a feeling the pomegranate orange juice would be absolutely delicious, and I was right!!

In preparation for my cleanse, I ate a little bit lighter the day before than I normally would (only because I was unsure how my body would react to doing something like this). The cleanse came with a little how-to sheet with some important info + tips for a successful cleanse.
-Drink LOTS of water (vital for helping your body flush toxins!)
-Absolutely NO Caffeine (let me just say, the ride in to work this coffee-less Monday morning, was a rough one..)
-Avoid solid foods

Typically I shy away from things that contain ginger, as often it is a very overpowering flavor – I was happy that the ginger takes a back seat in this Green Ginger juice!

IMG_20150329_154716Project Juice also offers “Wellness Shots”
E3 Energy – perfect for coffee drinkers, gives that extra boost to support energy levels;
Liver Lover – perfect for people who often drink alcohol to help speed and support cleansing;
Turmeric Tonic – for chronic pain or inflammation / and to support detoxification and healing;
Tummy Tonic – for digestive distress, and for finishing out a juice cleanse with this re-balancing shot!

Have you ever tried a Juice Cleanse? I don’t know if I could do more than a single day cleanse – I love actual food too much! haha! I will say though, I was hungry for breakfast prior to having my first juice, and by the time lunch rolled around and I was starting my third juice, I did not feel hungry even though I had not eaten.

If you are looking for a Juice Cleanse to try – I would definitely recommend Project Juice – they have excellent customer service, fast shipping and their products are top notch organic! (Remember, they are offering FREE US shipping right now too! So Hurry and place your orders!!)

A huge thank you to the lovely folks over at Project Juice for providing me with this Juice Cleanse!

Yours in Style,
