PedEgg

You all know my infatuation with my beloved PedEgg. Well, it’s still my favorite pedicure product, ever. And now, it’s even closer to my heart! PedEgg has released a special, limited edition Pink PedEgg.

The Pink PedEgg sports the Breast Cancer awareness ribbon and $50,000 of the proceeds will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. That’s a HUGE chunk of change that can really make a difference!

The limited edition pink PedEgg sells for $10 online at pinkpedegg.com or in your local drugstore (I’ve spotted them at Sally’s Beauty Supply, Walgreens and CVS).

Bionic’s Best of Beauty 2008!

Best of 2008 by BionicBeauty

Yippee! It’s 2009! I have always been partial to January… it’s fresh, usually cool (although today it’s over 70 here, wow) and it’s my month. I’m a Capricorn and my birthday is just around the corner!

But enough dilly-dallying… I’m here to give you the Bionic Beauty Best of 2008 list. These are the beauty products that rocked my world this year. I know they will be favorites for a long time to come. I’ve included links where applicable to my reviews and photos.

  • Three Custom Color’s Doubles lipgloss. This is a MUST in my purse. It’s the most amazing gloss ever. Sophia Coppola turned to Three Custom to design this gloss and her good taste shows. I’m in luv.
  • {me} by Mezhgan’s Look at {me} mascara. I adore my lashes with this tubing mascara.
  • Clinique’s Color Surge Stay Matte eye shadow in Dark Denim. The resurgence of matte shadow colors works so well with different skin tones- and this dark blue is bee-you-tee-full! (Stay tuned for a smokey eye look I created using this shadow.)
  • Twilight. I know, it’s not beauty related, but it did influence quite a few of my makeup looks this year. What can I say… I never got my letter to Hogwarts, so I’m moving to Forks to live with the Cullens instead.
  • Herbaria Soaps’ new Ginger Neem bar. This is one of their new releases this year and I adore the addition of the Neem Oil. It’s great for inflammation, ouchies, rashes, and just keeping your skin in glowing & smooth shape.
  • Three Custom Color’s Wallflower for cheeks. Woo! I’m a fan of this creamy cheek, eye, lip color. So versatile it almost needs a super-hero cape.
  • And another cream blush came on the market- Clinique’s Blushwear Cream Sticks. My favorite color is the limited edition Very Blush.
  • Black Cherry Indelible Gel Eyeliner from Purely Cosmetics. Ahh…black, maroon and slight sparkles? It’s me, to a T.
  • Bobbi Brown lip glosses. I love them all (and yes, I never tried Bobbi Brown until this year. Odd, right?) but my favorites are the limited edition Aubergine gloss and the Black Cherry lip tint.
  • NARS’ lipstick in Captiva. I featured it for my Fall 2008 Dark Lip Looks, but it’s never left my makeup tote since. First layer is super sheer and wearable even for day. Layer it for a darker look.
  • 1000 Cranes lotion by Y-Y. My uber favorite body moisturizer this year. Plus it’s nice that proceeds go to charity.
  • Milani’s Runway Wet/Dry eyeshadows that were direct competitors to the much pricier Vincent Longo releases. Milani can do no wrong lately. Highly pigmented shadows with long wear… and their new Mascara releases are absolutely stunning (and getting rave reviews so far!).
  • Sinful Colors nail polish. I started picking these up at Walgreens for only $2.49! They are great for pedicures and offer a myriad of color options. Did I mention they are only $2.49?!?  I have a black, a silver, green, purple (trendy!), red, maroon, and about 6 others.
  • The PedEgg. WOW! What a life changer. My feet are sandal ready in less than 5 minutes if need be. Best. Budget. Beauty. Gadget. Ever.
  • Last but not least, Purely Cosmetic’s mineral makeup. I use the Pure Silk Mineral Foundation in California Blonde. I also love her Flat-Top foundation brush and cream-to-powder shadows. Purely Cosmetics is one of those jems of a brand that I can see rising to the top.

What are your favorites from 2008? Did you discover any new brands or items? New makeup or nail colors?

I Love My PedEgg Pedicure File!

by Bionic Beauty on 04.Jun.2008 · 28 comments

Ped Egg Pedicure file
I’m a gadget-girl and am thrilled when I can combine my love of gadgets and beauty products. When I noticed the new PedEgg at my local Walgreens, I grabbed one without thought. Heck, I certainly needed to get my feet into shape for summer, right? So, I’ll give this a shot.

I adore this pedicure file. It’s an oblong-egg shape which prevents my hands from cramping up while I buff away calluses on my feet. It comes with one file (i.e. blade), the “egg” holder and cover, as well as two sandpaper buffers for finish smoothing work.

Simply use the blade file to gently shave off your rough calluses and then finish with the paper buffer to really smooth your skin. After that I follow up with a moisturizing body balm or butter. When you are all finished, grab the blade to remove it, and dump the skin flakes into your trash.

Ta-Da! Perfect feet for summer! I’m using my PedEgg weekly and will probably need a replacement blade soon. But I have gotten 3 months of use out of the first blade!

You can purchase the PedEgg Pro Pedicure Foot FilePed Egg Pedicure file from Drugstore.com for $9.99 or check your favorite local brick and mortar drugstore.
