Shimmering Bean Towne

Google the word Beantown and everything about Boston comes up on your screen. Food, Fenway, fashion and everything in between can be found in this historic and foot traffic friendly capitol. But why beans? And how come you never hear anybody who lives here, EVER refer to it as such?

Without boring you to pieces with a history lesson, the nickname Beantown was thought to originate with the earliest settlers in Massachusetts. In colonial Plimoth beans were a staple item in the pantry. Beans were always on the menu. Honestly, in my mind, that doesn’t sound very appealing, no pun intended. Needless to say the legume is very healthy for you. The nickname and it’s origins  have come around a few times, but it has nevertheless stuck through history, and legend carries on today.

My BostonMints lipgloss color Bean Towne is the color for 2015! Similar to the Pantone color of the year ~ it virtually goes with everything. A gorgeous rich universal hue, you’ll love how full and rich your lips look and feel. Protect, pamper and heal with vitamins C & E and Aloe. Refreshing spearmint keeps your lips and breath cool and minty. Longer lasting than regular lipgloss and made to layer with your other favorite lip colors, you’ll never go wrong!

Overview

  • Handmade item
  • Materials: Spearmint Leaf Oil, Ascorbic Acid, Tocopheryl Acetate, Antioxidants, Aloe Vera, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Isostearyl Palmitate, Iron Oxides
  • Made to order
  • Ships from Boston, Massachusetts

 

Order yours today and be sure to check out all my other great colors available, including the NEWEST in my line,  Back Bay Berry and STRONG.

Plum Island Sand

Located in Essex County, on the North Shore of Boston, Plum Island has been a favorite for families and and school trips for many years. The name Plum Island often conjures up images of picnics, fishing or walking on sandy beaches. Fruit possibly comes to mind also. The island was named for what was known as the beach plum, growing wild on the dunes over a hundred years ago. Today you’ll find boutiques, local eateries and Bed & Breakfasts to stay the night. At the southern end of the island is Sandy Point State Reservation, a day use only state park. You’ll find the last lighthouse on the island at the northern tip. Pack a picnic and a soft blanket and make a day of it. Watch the sunset and the boats pass into the evening. Don’t forget your bug spray though, you’ll surely regret it!

I created the color Plum Island Sand with the beach dunes of Plum Island in mind. The color is sheer and cool, like the cold water that laps at the shores.

Never tested on animals and also gluten free, it will suit even the most particular client.

La Isla Bonita

I’ve got a serious case of the eighties going through my mind and La Isla Bonita has been on loop since dinner.

BostonMints_Shells

In New England we are fortunate to have so many coastal towns to visit. Some of us venture up to Maine and New Hampshire. Others hit Newport, Rhode Island. Summers in Massachusetts take on as many different shades of color as the rocks that wash up on our shores.

Are you North Shore or South Shore? Cape Cod or Cape Anne? With so many top notch choices at our finger tips we typically become creatures of habit and stick with the destination filled with the most memories.

For many, the Islands call to them. Maybe you like to stroll Castle Island or run a trail race on Deer Island? If your island is of the Plum variety, you most likely own a pair of binoculars and enjoy watching the birds.

Then there are two. Two like no other place on earth. Like dueling pianos, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard each have their own variety of guests gathered around to eat, drink and be social. Both islands have a home town culture that seduces the average and not so average visitor, asking them to go steady.

The waves harmonize perfectly with each beach defining and redefining their shape; giving subtle nuances that make each island, as different as they are alike.

BostonMints has a color named for each of these Fraternal Twins; Mint Tucket Red and Vineyard Bluff.

Mint Tucket Red fits nicely in your basket while Vineyard Bluff goes well with a layer of Labrador. Never sticky or tacky and never ever tested on animals! Always Gluten free, paraben free, and lead free, it will be a go to favorite for your prettiest, plumpest lips. Check out and all my other colors in the collection today!

The Color of Love

The Swan Boats in Boston Common conjure up thoughts of happy little children, blush pink tulips and lovely white feathered birds floating alongside a tradition that has held strong for over a hundred years. In 1877 with the popularity of bicycles riding through the park, Robert Paget and others developed a catamaran with a big white Swan as housing to hide the captain peddling the paddles. The boats have changed little, it continues to be a local family tradition that captures the hearts of many.

Teen Time!

Remember playing with your first tube of lipstick? Practicing your pucker in the mirror and trying not to break the soft creamy point of color off of the tube. Eyeliner may have been the trickiest of the bunch. Should I put it on top, bottom, both or should I skip it altogether? As an adult I still love to experiment with makeup and I know for a fact the average woman is still questioning her makeup options, never mind her daughters!

I have created a Teen Makeup lesson and application as a healthy beginning and education on beautiful natural makeup for your teen. Bring in your daughters, nieces and friends; help them get started with healthy & modern beauty habits. (ages 10-16) We are all familiar with a little goes a long way ~ as a rule, a professional makeup artist can teach that habit and make it fabulous. The best part is I can teach your girls how to do it themselves. One of the best rewards I receive as a makeup artist, is seeing the natural confidence of a young lady. It certainly doesn’t take the same application of cosmetics or even the same products for that matter, as it does for a woman who has decades under her belt. There are lots of fun summer trends, along with classic tried and true that can easily be worked into a regular or special event routine.

Special events; proms, parties and wedding, are always fun for a first professional makeup appointment, you certainly don’t need a special occasion to take advantage of this fantastic service! Call ahead for your private session or ask about bringing in a group of girls as an occasion in itself! Don’t forget VIP Spa members always get extra perks! See you soon!

Introducing two NEW colors from BostonMints!

After months of blending, testing and perfecting, I am so excited to announce TWO new and brilliant lip glosses to the BostonMints family. Let’s welcome the summer months ahead with my newest hues ~ Back Bay Berry and Strong! I can’t even say their names without a smile creeping across my face. The colors are vibrant and shimmery and the names alone speak for themselves. The process of choosing names is never easy, I want to feel an emotional charge from the names I choose, not just choose random places or words. #FindYourColoriSpy

Back Bay Berry glides off the tongue as easily as it drapes your lips in the most decadent shimmering shade of berry gloss. Like fresh plums and raspberries blended together with the amazing benefits of coconut oil and the long lasting refreshment of spearmint. The sight of window boxes throughout Back Bay filled with flowers in the summer and berries in the winter, inspired the color for this sure favorite.
BostonMints Back Bay Berry
Strong. The word holds so much comfort and assurance to everybody, and everybody’s strength is unique. Strong could be first steps, survival, bravery or honesty. Oftentimes strong is simply putting a smile on your face when it’s not your first choice. This shade of red, with just the right amount of shimmer for day or night suits absolutely every skin tone. Blended with the highest quality coconut oil and my original blend of Aloe & Spearmint oils, a healthy addition to your collection. BostonMints is gluten free and safe for everybody of all ages. This new color is brilliant, classic and will have a stronghold in the front pocket of your purse.

Blue Lagoon Brow (1980)

Let’s flash back in time to the 1980 Summer blockbuster movie, The Blue Lagoon. The deserted island, lush palm trees and blue waves slapping at your pretty painted toes. Living in a beach community its hard not to imagine a love story like that happening around here. Maybe fewer palm trees…


I was thinking of Brooke Sheilds in particular when I started daydreaming about islands. She was and continues to be a beauty icon for women of all ages. Her full and groomed eyebrows in her early movies were fantastic and are a perfect example of what is trending today. Speaking of gorgeous eyebrows, think of Audrey Hepburn also. Another classic thick groomed brow. This look can be easily achieved by everybody with a little guidance and a few essential tools.

Studio Makeup at Adamo,  offers an eyebrow make over that will leave you feeling confident that you are putting your best face forward. Your eyebrows are the frames for your eyes and can easily change your appearance, sometimes not the way you like, if not groomed properly. I will teach you how to maintain your new shape at home so you can conserve your fresh look. I have new shapes and color palettes in the studio today. Everything you need to be your own favorite beauty icon. Call Studio Makeup at Adamo now to make your appointment. Tel. 781.383.3011 or email us at
