Product <3 :: M·A·C Viva Glam it Up

Check out this holiday exclusive!! Have you tried either product yet? Tell us what you think! My all-time MAC lip product is still their lip glass – and their makeup remover wipes are a must-have.

If you haven’t been to their Robertson location yet – that’s a lot of fun. Paige premium denim, Intermix and the Newsroom Cafe (or the Ivy if you feel like star-gazing and dropping some serious dough) are a great LA way to spend the afternoon.

Product <3: Dermorganics

Our Black Magick Vanity Mixer pretties walked out with some serious SWAG. As in full-size (in some cases, back-bar sized!) “samples” of this local, organic, vegan Argan Oil line. When Tania @untamedinstincts and I were setting up, she said, “Who left these boxes in the hallway when we have an event tonight?” Well- those boxes (as in 5 big ones) turned out to be all these luscious goodies from this line. She styled my hair with the setting spray, and it held all night.

Drink :: Teaometry

I discovered this educator and purveyor of wild-harvested teas at our Black Magick Vanity Mixer the other week. We sat at the tea bar at Sweet 9 Hair Salon and the Teaometry master brewed up a batch of 8-year old tea from the South of China.

And don’t worry if you can’t make it to our neck of the woods for the experience (although it is pretty cool) … he sells his artisan teas online.

Hollywood Style Scene :: Black Friday Vanity Mixer

Hollywood Scenester gave us a little mixer love for the Black Magick vanity mixer co-hosted by Tania @untamedinstincts and yours truly at Sweet 9 Salon on Melrose. It was a boho chic beauty sampler and included makeup artistry by @glamourlush, our signature pout bar featuring OCC Lip Tars being (custom hand mixed by @glamourlush herself) on a paw pallette for each guest), jewelry by Coker Jewelry, henna tats by Opal Moon, candles by Vestacha and serious samples from DermOrganic.  Like full-size, back bar OMG they’re so big samples.

On the refreshment front Viva Los Cupcakes had THE most interesting flavors, like pineapple tamale inspired confections and Teaometry shares his vitner-esque obsessionf for the tea leaf for all who chose to have that experience.
