On Skin, Selfies, and Salon Kazumi

I had to cover the grand opening of Salon Kazumi in Beverly Hills for the magazine, so I slapped on some CC Cream and By Terry Glace (literally… slapped), a little gold and a little nude and headed out.

Because the event was pretty straightforward and cozy and there wasn’t much to do besides drink and make idle chat with random strangers, I decided to be raggedy and take a selfie in the the salon selfiebathroom. The lighting in that sucker is soooo designed to make you look like a supermodel. 😀 I was in there trying to figure out the configuration because I swear I’m doing that in my own bathroom. Think I’m playing.

I mean, look at that skin! Now, granted it was day 1 of my latest peel so my skin was all about that glow. In the coming days I’m gonna look like a reptile until the skin breaks and reveals the new stuff. But with just a hit of the By Terry Glace and CC cream, I got what is essentially my own skin on beauty crack. Eyes are the gold color from the Lunasol Germinate palette, MUFE felt tip liner, and Tilbury’s Legendary Mascara (what? I paid for it so I’m gonna use it… sometimes). Blush is Chanel’s In Love and lips are Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited in Beige.

We ended up with samples of a shampoo and treatment that I can’t wait to try. I love the new space. If I can gather enough coins, I might just pop in there for a cut and color. Kazumi (who is just as effervescent and pleasant as all get out. Got a smile like Melanie Mills, who is one of my favorite humans) is known as the ‘brunette whisperer’ and this brunette can always use a boost. 😉

    So pretty. I went on Shu’s website for the lipstick. Is it BG911 or BG930?

  2. Probably 911 because it’s distinctly beige. I have the old version (before they changed the packaging) and mine has a soft shimmer. My label is worn off so I don’t know the exact number.

    Thank you. I have some of the old Shu lipsticks, Maybe I have it. I put them away because I thought they were too old to use. They still smell fine and haven’t gone bad. Do you think as long as the lipstick smells fine, you can still use it? I have Armani, Guerlain, YSL, Dior, Tom Ford, Givenchy- and the list goes on.

  4. I always do the smell test and girl if they smell good I use them! I keep them disinfected with a beauty spray. All of my cream and powder products get a spritz before I put them away. It’s a good habit to develop, beyond just keeping them from going bad. No point in putting old bacteria on a clean new face.

    Thank you. I’m glad I already do what you suggested and I also use a spatula with my lip colors. Your blog is a wealth of information and I love it
