A childhood interest for art and design grew into a passion for all things beauty. Currently, I’m still smitten.


Ginger + Liz Nail It!

My first glance at GINGER + LIZ was in Ebony Magazine. The article featured the pair as NY based entrepreneurs (my soft spot). Shortly afterwards, swatches from their collection and pictures of "polished" celebs were showcased in my favorite magazines...InStyle, People, Jones, Essence, and....well, you get the picture.
The brand is a collection of vegan friendly/toxin-free lacquers in a variety of shades and textures. The luxe colours are sold exclusively at specialty spas and salons. Hmm...that means I must make my way down to The Back Room Hand & Foot Spa in Harlem to pick up Royal Flush. For a location near you, click here.
GINGER + LIZ is for every woman: eclectic and edgy or refined and feminine...there's a hue that reflects the woman in us all.


  1. I need to get on the good foot and do something....


  2. Hey Toscha, Jeanine here. Any recommendations on a tinted primer from Sephora. Something to wear with or without foundation

  3. Hey Jeanine:
    LAURA GELLER Spackle Tinted Under Makeup Primer @ $25.00. It has a bit of bronzer in it for slight color/glow. MURAD Skin Perfecting Primer has a "natural" color to it for $35. PHILOSOPHY Supernatural Poreless Tinted Primer with SPF $30 is worth a try and AVON MagiX Tinted Face Perfector comes in four shades for $10 online.

  4. @ Jonelle -- you're my muse. Let's go!!!

  5. Hello Black Swan,

    I am in the market for a true blue liner. I want to make my eyes pop and I heard through the grapevine that blue liner will do just that. I have the MAC eye pencil Auto De Bleu and its more grayish green on me. Any reccos?


  6. Hey Jx2:
    You must try MAC's Blooz -- an indigo eye kohl with a matte pearl finish. Let me know how it works for you.
