5 Easy Makeup Looks For Labor Day Weekend and LDW Savings


Labor Day Weekend 2019 will unofficially start for Team TME at about 4:30 pm this afternoon and if you’re anything like this crazy bunch of ornery peeps, you’re probably looking to relish every last bit of Summer this Labor Day Weekend. It’s as simple beginning with a replay of the most coveted looks of summer before the season is gone for good. Break out your bright lipsticks, even brighter nail colors and dewy, radiant skin, and say a proper Au Revoir to Summer 2019 with the hottest beauty looks of the season.



The Golden Gaze – If you want that twinkle in your eye to last long after the dog days of summer are through? Apply a drop of water to an eyeshadow brush and dip into Illamasqua Powder Eye Shadow in Tango. The high pigmentation of the shadow mixed with the water will make for unforgettable eyes that are guaranteed to make that cutie at your weekend barbecue stop dead in his tracks!




Pretty Pout - Craving the ultimate coral lip that looks just as juicy on as it does in the tube? Look no further than Benefit Ultra Plush Lip Gloss in CORALista. This dazzling lip-gloss enhances your natural beauty by adding a ton of dazzle with a hint of color.




Entrancing Eyes - Looking to cause a scene with summer crush during your weekend getaway? Swipe on MAC TECHNAKOHL LINER in Metalhead. When placed on the eyelid, the color blue produces a dramatic look that is bold and captivating.





Cheeky Cheeks - Stuck deciding whether to apply blush or bronzer for a nighttime affair? Now you don’t have to choose with Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in Pink Mosaic. It’s the perfect solution to giving your cheeks a rosy summer glow, sans hours in the sun.





Nailing It - Just because summer’s over doesn’t mean you have to lighten up on your nails. Bright colors can still be worn during the transitional time between summer to fall and have been seen on models in countless runway shows. Get your last kicks in with Essie Nail Polish in Watermelon. It’s the perfect mix of pink and red that screams sweet and sexy.

Fall and Winter Skincare Beauty Bargains


If you’re living in the Northeast part of the country, you may be thinking that the cold weather is never going to arrive. Oh the bliss of delusion. According to the weather experts, we can welcome to the cold, windy weather this weekend! Okay, so enough about the weather... we all know what's coming isn’t exactly idea and that the cold, harsh elements are going  play havoc on our skin. Happily, we finally got around to testing out a few skin-loving products and these babies won’t break the bank!




You can begin any at-home spa time with the Spin Spa Body Brush ($19.99). This battery-powered brush comes with 5 attachments including a massage, mesh sponge, cleansing, microdermabrasion, and pumice stone for through and complete indulgence.

After using the Spin Spa Body Brush, we dove write into the Spin Spa Face Brush ($12.99) for an at-home facial experience. This water resistant, battery-powered brush comes with two cleansing attachments for through and complete indulgence that will bring the spa to you.



One of the most surprising products that we found is from essence cosmetics. This brand is extremely bargain based and we were highly skeptical about product efficacy. Can you find hand and nail happiness for $3.99 each? Well, YES you can! essence cosmetics honey care smoothing nail & cuticle scrub is an absolute nail saver with exfoliating properties and soothing, nourishing oils that leave nails looking perfect! Paired with essence cosmetics honey care moisturizing & caring hand cream for all over hand care and you are good to go throughout the cold months! Did we mention that both products smell amazing?!?


Rounding out our finds is another essence product that actually is a year-round absolute must-have. essence makeup cooling & relaxing eye pads ($3.99) are the ultimate wake-up, pick-up for tired eyes. Toss them in the fridge and they are ready to go anytime, plus they’re super cute!

The products total around $45, which is a lot less then you would spend for one spa treatment and together they make the perfect holiday gift! The Spin Spa Body Brush and the Spin Spa Facial are available online at Spin Spa and mass retailers. essence products available online at essence makeup!

4.) Gift With Purchase Promos: Hands down, one of the best parts of shopping at ULTA is its “GWP” promotion that offers freebie. If you purchase an item that is part of a promotion, you get special gifts like scarves, tote bags, and makeup from both high-end and drugstore brands.

5.) Visit ULTA’s BOGO and Bargains Page: ULTA's website has an entire section specifically listing all current bargains and sales. This section is well maintained and updated often. So before you head out to ULTA or buy online, visit the ULTA Promo Page first!

Team TME hopes that these tips will help you to save money on your next in-store or online venture at ULTA. There are two more brief tips to share – first, if you spend $50 online you can get free shipping and secondly, while physically going to ULTA is not always the most convenient, you can actually find a lot more bargains in the store versus online!

Fashion Bargains For Fall 2016


We thoroughly enjoy a good bargain, and upon invitation, we were was sent to the off-price retailer T.J. Maxx. In complete honesty we never expected to be impressed, nor were we overly enthusiastic about this particular endeavor. While bargains are always a fabulous find, our preconceived notions about T.J. Maxx left us tentative.

Despite our hesitation we set out on what we’d intended to be a brief excursion. Several hours later, we were thrilled that we’d been given the opportunity to do a little “secret” shopping. The fact is that with Fall 2016 and the festivities that come with the season, it’s past time to switch up your wardrobe and home décor for the new season. T.J. Maxx -- which is part of The TJX Companies and includes US stores Marshalls, HomeGoods, and Sierra Trading Post -- offers an incredible array of upmarket items for up to 80 percent off what those items would cost at other retail outlets.

As we perused the store, we found everything from leather jackets to fringe booties to faux fur scarves and amazing beauty items! All of which are very hot for fall and winter (well beauty items are always hot!). We also found an amazing selection of unique home items. Of course if you want to get the very most for your money, you do need a strategy. 

Tips To Get The Most From Bargain Shopping:
  1. Make a list of your must-have items
  2. Plan on taking your time in the store, there’s a lot to see
  3. No matter how inexpensive the item may be, it’s not a bargain if you’ll never use it
