TFB Favorites: Nirvana Dry Shampoo

by christinamdick

The Elizabeth and James Nirvana fragrance comes in a dry shampoo, and it’s my absolute favorite. It’s an aerosol spray and it does come out white, so you rub it in. I like to spray it, wait a few moments and then “massage the scalp,” as they say. The whole point of dry shampoo is to soak up oiliness so that you don’t have to wash your hair as often. The added bonus is that it adds volume to your hair. You can use it for that even on days when your hair is freshly washed.

I’ve been using Nirvana White for a while; I bought the mini bottle of the new(ish) rose scent during the VIB sale at Sephora and I like it even more. The first time I wore it, I kept getting a whiff of it throughout the day and wondering what  the awesome smell was. Highly recommend!

Bobbi Brown Favorites and a Giveaway!

by christinamdick

Tonight me and five readers are getting a private makeup class from a Bobbi Brown makeup artist. I’m super excited to hangout with everyone and give some things away. I’ll be posting about it on Instagram if you want to follow along. 

I got to join in on a seasonal training with Bobbi Brown’s artistry education team and hear about the latest products coming for Summer. Here are the ones I’m excited about: 16465581_1861451124140497_6025364681315581952_n

After an overview of where the company is at including details on Bobbi Brown’s retirement (What?! This was the first I’ve heard of that.), Deanna and Sarah got into the newest product launch – Remedies.


Everything was laid out in stations for us to try.



Remedies are ” the perfect fusion of beauty and wellness – the ultimate skin enhancer.” They’re meant to supplement your skincare routine for specific concerns.


Skin Reviver | $45 | Nordstrom is full of antioxidants meant to improve skin’s health with regular use. It’s not meant for a specific skin type but can be used on anyone.

Skin Moisture Solution | $45 | Nordstrom is a moisturizing serum for severely dry skin. It’s made with Hyaluronic acid which acts like a sponge to draw moisture into the skin. This was one of my favorites. I love moisture in the form of a serum verses a heavy cream. They suggested pairing this with the Hydrating Face Cream and Extra SPD 25 Tinted Moisturizing Balm.

Skin Fortifier | $45 | Nordstrom is rich in lipids, which fill-in the skin’s moisture barrier and restore skins ability to repair itself. It’s meant to keep moisture in and toxins out. They recommend using it with the Extra Repair Nourishing Milk and the Intensive Serum Foundation (which I love).

Skin Relief | $45 | Nordstrom calms skin and reduces redness.

Skin Salve | $45 Nordstrom is great for if you’ve overdone it with the retinol or if your skin s just really dry and patchy.

Skin Clarifier | $45 | Nordstrom is my favorite. I like that it’s an oil consistency but it’s meant to treat/prevent acne.


You can get one of these mini sets for $35 at Nordstrom.



The Cheek Glow Palette ($50 | BobbiBrown.com) was my favorite of the day. I’d seen these on their Instagram and was crossing my fingers I’d get to see it in training.  Each comes with a cream highlighter and a pot rouge blush. They gave me the Pink Opal/Homecoming Pink shades. This is so pretty. I use a foundation brush to apply the darker pink and top it with the lighter, highlighter shade and pull it up toward my temples.



The Art Stick Liquid Lip just launched last month. I got to try the shade Antique Pink. They’re squeezable, semi-matte full-coverage color. I liked mine so much I came back to get one in the shade Havana Coral.

And now for my all-time favorites:


Eye Shadows and Palette | $25 and $10 | Nordstrom These are the best and last forever

Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Goldstone and Greige | $30 each | Nordstrom I like to use a combination of these two – Goldstone on my inner lid and Griege in the outer corner and down and around under my eyes.

Skin Foundation Cushion Compact | $50 | Nordstrom So awesome. Smells amazing + pretty and dewy.

Cheek Glow | $50 | Saks So pretty and dewy

Blush in Pale Pink | $28 | Nordstrom The best blush. Super

Bronzer in Golden Light | $42 | Nordstrom I recently went back to this. I had been using Too Faced Chocolate Soleil but I felt like it was getting blotchy by the end of the day.

Lip Gloss in Bare Sparkle, Pink Oyster | $28 | Nordstrom I love that these smell minty. Don’t be afraid of the glitter. I wear it to meetings and everything. I think it makes the shiny look of the gloss last a lot longer.

Serum Foundation in Beige | $65 | Nordstrom The best stuff. Goes on so smooth and has SPF 40!

Art Stick Liquid Lip in Havana Coral | $28 | Nordstrom These are so fun. This shade is subtle and looks pretty with a tan.


We’re giving away Bobbi’s Original 10 25th Anniversary Lip Collection. When Bobbi created her original 10 lipsticks, the vision was simple—an edited collection of creamy-matte lipsticks in shades that complement any skin tone. From pale salmon to deep blackberry to classic red, all 10 shades are brown-based, which is the secret behind their incredible wearability.FullSizeRender (2) IMG_3321
