Tackling beauty clutter…

February 15th, 2010 by Chassin

in the inbox, that is. And if I find a product and service I just LOVE, I’ll spread the word. Many women at the lunches ask me, what make-up is on your face/head? Here it is: Lancome Absolue foundation. This week get free shipping and free samples with code below. I am on the Lancome-USA.com email list and got 9 different travel size products FREE with my order of one foundation today.

Step one: visit a Lancome department and find out your color (don’t depend on your computer monitor to be accurate). Not sure? Don’t be shy…they need your business so ask the artist to do different colors on each side of your face and wear it home. Or try both formulas of Absolue.

Step two: Always start online shopping at www.goodshop.com and enter Bald Girls Do Lunch as your charity. For this promo, enter Lancome as  your store

Step three: At checkout use code “warmth” (week of February 15-21, 2010) for trial samples and free shipping……AND if you login as a regular you get even more for a total assortment of  9 travel size products.

Women say: We’re loving the BGDL Powder Brow and Sealer

December 10th, 2009 by Chassin

 I love my BGDL Make-up!!!! – AF, Israel

“I love my BGDL brow set with powder, brush and sealer. My eyebrows look natural and I never need to re-apply during the day. Even after a rigorous aerobic workout they are perfectly set, and as a fitness instructor with “all eyes on me” this is extremely important. I feel entirely confident and having that peace of mind is just as essential as the aesthetic outcome of the product. My friends tell me that my brows look full and natural. Thank you!” – S, Alopecia 6 months

“I have found it works great over a tattoo. It gets rid of the grayish/bluish color that a lot of permanent make-up gets after a while….I use it to make by brows lighter than they are naturally as it goes better with the lighter hair I wear. I recommend it to my customers.” – D, Alopecia 15 years

Note from BGDL.…..new projects for 2010 include an online make-up store for your convenience. Till then? brows@baldgirlsdolunch.org . All proceeds support the growth of our community and outreach to alopecian women everywhere.


Where to buy wig accessories

November 25th, 2008 by Chassin

 wilshirewigs.com for accessories:wig tape, styro-heads, wig blocks, table clamps…all those little things that make a big difference.

Their wig tape selection alone has over 30 separate items. Most every wig tape I’ve used is also perfect for keeping clothing straps and necklines in place, not to mention the emergency hem repair. So keep a few in your wallet. Just like all those folks walking the Red Carpet….you, too, can look absolutely put together when your moving parts are taped in place with yards of wig tape. It’s true…and it works.

Eyelashes ($2.75); Duo Surgical Adhesive ( 1.2 oz ) ($11.50); Styrofoam heads ($4); large packs of double stick wig tape ($3.75); storage box plus styro-head($12). Have a very tiny head? Buy their canvas wig block in a child size. Have a long-haired wig? Wilshire has the long-necked heads.

They also have a custom workroom with ventilators who will resize your wig or add more hair even if you did not purchase from them.
