The Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach offers the ultimate in rest, relaxation and rejuvenation with a menu of luxe facials, invigorating scrubs and sensuous massages. With the introduction of the spa’s Wedding Collection, brides, grooms and the entire wedding party now have a dedicated treatment menu from which to pamper and prepare for the magical day.

Eau Spa features 19 Spa Villas, including three spacious Couples’ Spa Villas, providing an intimate experience far beyond treatments, with lavish outdoor garden enclaves, oversized soaking tubs and al fresco rainfall showers for an open-air spa experience and ultimate relaxation either before or after the big day. Adjoining Spa Villas are also available and ideal for large groups and wedding parties.

Eau Spa is just the beginning when it comes to Ritz-Carlton wedding specialties.

For a more intimate wedding ceremony, couples can invite their closest friends and family to witness the exchange of vows in a fanciful oceanfront cabana. No matter which venue is chosen, the surf, sand and sunsets of Palm Beach are sure to imbue the day with tranquility and natural beauty.

Iman Cosmetics Foundations, Take 1

Your eyes do not deceive you.

You read the title correctly.

I typed “foundations”. Yes, I know—the woman who swoooore she would never be a “foundation person” is slowly playing around with them more and more. I have yet to wear them on a daily (ha..or weekly) basis but I’m gettin’ there. Trying to find the right color is the biggest pain ever.

But a brown girl friendly line like Iman Cosmetics makes it A LOT easier.

I played around with the Stick Foundation and Second to None Cover Cream.


*slams on brakes*

But wait….I can’t even give a fair review because my color is off! Does mis eyes deceive me, fam? What do you think?

Okay…here is the Stick Foundation in Earth 1


This is the first Stick Foundation that I have ever purchased. Such a proud moment in this 24 year old’s life. Now I was either rocking my shades while making this purchase or was lost and insecure (I love The Fray, hehe) because I think this color is way off!

Shucks.

Surely the lovely Second to None Cover Cream in Earth Deep would help a sista out.

This concealer is so creamy . It practically blended on my skin like a moisturizer. This is great for me and my “acts a fool when a product is too heavy” skin.

But uh…


This looks to be too red! Freakin’ A, mannnn. What is a girl to do?

Stay tuned for Round 2 of Iman Cosmetics Foundations. Since checking out the website I have now found my correct shade (Earth 3) and will shop accordingly.

Any Iman Cosmetics foundation wearers out there?

Brown and Secure (LMAO….get it?—*crickets*),

ImanCosmetics.com Revamped!

[scheduled post--I am traveling. Email me
with any questions.]

Expect some reviews from Iman Cosmetics coming from me in the near future. I have been dabbling quite a bit with their concealers and even the foundations. And….I’m impressed!

Until I get those reviews up, check out ImanCosmetics.com. It is user-friendly and does an awesome job and trying to “guess” what shade you are by other brands.

Por ejemplo (Spanish for “for example”):

Let’s say you are NW45 in MAC’s foundation. According to Iman Cosmetic’s chart, you would be Earth 3 for their foundation.


Totally cool, right? You can do the same for Black Opal, Fashion Fair, L’Oreal and Revlon.

My favorite part of the site? The makeovers!! Click here to see what I’m talking about it.

To my darker brown girls….Iman has you covered!

Anyone a fan of Iman Cosmetics? I can’t wait to get those reviews out for y’all. Stay tuned!
