Cheap Spring Makeup from e.l.f.


Now that spring is here, Everything She Wants is looking for new beauty products and lighter, fresher mineral makeup.  So it’s only natural that I turned to e.l.f.* (eyes lips face), perhaps the bestselling makeup brand for bargain beauty-nistas.

Previously, I’ve written about e.l.f.’s magical Essential Zit Zapper (it’s only a buck).  And since my pesky breakouts persist I’m ready to try out the limited edition Spring Collection Mineral Blemish Set ($5), which promises to heal and disguise blemishes with all-natural ingredients.  The two-piece set comes with a concealer brush and translucent powder with active acne fighting ingredients like sulfur, tea tree and willow bark to treat acne and prevent future breakouts.

For spring makeup, e.l.f. has several limited-edition Spring Collection products perfect for Mother’s Day, prom, graduation and birthday gifts including: the 2-Piece Mineral Foundation SPF 15 set ($5) infused with vitamin E to condition and smooth the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines; the e.l.f. Studio 32-piece Eyeshadow Palette ($5) available in warm and cool palette shades; and the e.l.f. Essential 4-Piece Nail Polish Set ($5) with bright polish colors in Coral Dream, Flirty Fuchsia, Party Peach and Smokin’ Hot.  For only $10, diehard makeup mavens can pick up the 100-Piece Eyeshadow Palette (reduced from $20), which includes everything to go from daytime fresh and bright, to a party-ready smoky eye, to more avant garde, creative looks.

Since all e.l.f. mineral makeup is 100% free of parabens, preservatives and chemical dyes, it will help you to look your best and you can feel good about using the products, too. Plus, free shipping if you place your order today (April 26, 2012)!

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

(Tracy E. Hopkins) It's the end of a budget shopping era. Conway discount stores are closing in New York City . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to the Big Apple, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater Graces Brooklyn Academy of Music, June 4-9, 2024

Dance is expression. Dance is spiritual. Dance is activism. Dance is life. I feel most alive when I am listening to music and dancing.  As a spectator and fan, some of my fondest moments of watching dance performances have been witnessing the dignity and grace of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Every time I see the Ailey company, I am inspired, moved, and grounded in the beauty and complexity of the African American experience.  Photo by Paul Kolnik For me, the highlight is always "Revelations," Mr. Ailey's three-part ode to his upbringing in the Black Baptist church. The three sections -- "Pilgrim of Sorrow"; "Take Me to the Water"; and "Move, Members, Move" -- tell the story of African American faith and persistence from slavery to freedom. Over the weekend,  I had the pleasure of taking an outdoor Community Workshop in downtown Brooklyn, where we learned some of the choreography for "Revelations." I beamed from ear to ear
