Apply foundation, blush, contour, highlight and setting powder in less time with the blendSMART2 Rotating Makeup Brush. This is an upgrade to the original product previously launched. This version features a quieter motor and magnetic brush heads. Spinning at about 190 RPM, the anti-bacterial synthetic fibers quickly buffs to a beautiful finish using with less product.


{Beachwaver S1, $129}*

The cult favorite Beachwaver S1 is the go-to styling iron backstage at fashion and awards shows.  A rotating ceramic barrel helps you get beachy waves, glam waves or defined curls at home in minutes.


{Peter Thomas Roth MaskTasker Mask Applicator, $12}

Keep your hands clean when apply face masks. The Peter Thomas Roth MaskTasker Mask Applicator makes it a lot easier to quickly apply face masks without getting your fingers covered in product. Use the smooth side to scoop out and apply product, then textured side to spread product.


{NuFACE Mini, $199}

No pain face lift?! Yes, sign me up! The NuFACE Mini is portable device that uses microcurrent technology to tone and contour the face in 5-15 minutes.


{Flirt Flashes Lash Applicator, $28}

Customize your eye look with ease with the Flirt Flashes Lash Applicator. The applicator hold 40 lash buds. Scroll the dial to dispensing a lash bud ready for glue application. Click to hold it in place while you apply glue and wait for it to get tacky. Then hold the device up to the eye, stick the tacky lash bud to the lashline, wait for the bond and press the button to release.


{Cover FX Custom Cover Drops, $44}

Customize your own foundation or create a tinted moisturizer with Cover FX Custom Cover Drops. Add drops of pure pigment to creams, serums or oils for a radiant tinted glow.  Or mix with matte products for a smooth flawless finish.  Coverage is adjustable based on the number of drops used – 1 for sheer, 2 for medium, 3 for full and 4 for extra full.


{TYME Iron, $189}*

The TYME Iron is a salon quality hair tool, with a unique design that can straighten hair when turned one way or create beautiful curls when turned another. The gold-plated titanium plates heat to 400 degrees in a flash. Once you learn the technique, you can create endless hair styles with one iron. Note: There is a learning curve with this item. I suggest watching YouTube videos and scheduling a free session with a TYME stylist to help you master just how to use this device.


{FragranceLock, $30}

Everyone wants their fragrance to be long-lasting. FragranceLock creates a breathable barrier, helping your scent last up to 12 hour by slowing down the natural evaporation process.


{Kat Von D Beauty Shade + Light Contour Brush, $34}

The Kat Von D Beauty Shade + Light Contour Brush is the perfect two in one for getting the right angle and blending. The plush bristles are a soft synthetic with a pointed domed side and a slanted side.
