I love how this kit comes complete with a LED light that helps the whitening action. With in a few uses I started to see results and I experienced minimal teeth sensitivity. Using this kit is really easy, just use the pen (looks/works like a twist top lip-gloss pen) to apply the whitening product onto your teeth and mouth piece. Then place the LED light over the mouth piece and leave it for about 20-30 minutes. The LED light does not give off heat of any kind and stays put without having to hold it in place with your hand.

Hong Kong artist May Sum sculpts celebrity style icons out of lipstick and it’s simply spectacular. She only uses lippies from MAC, YSL, NARS, and Estee Lauder.
She has sculpted mini masterpieces of Lady Gaga, Coco Chanel, Kate Moss, Twiggy, Madonna, and Princess Diana.
She also offers custom orders for anyone who wants a lipstick sculpture of themselves. These little beauties are very fragile and need to be stored in a dry area within 62-77 degrees so they won’t melt in hot temps or crack in high temps. Custom orders start at $620 and can be purchased on her etsy page.

Happy Easter from The Beauty Edge!
Here’s my last minute DIY Easter Mani! I used Essie Love Every Minute as a base coat and layered one coat of Dior Princess over it. For my accent nail, I chose Dior Lime and Nicole by OPI Inner Sparkle for some added glitz.
In an effort to protect the Easter Bunny ;), I thought it would be cute to share a list of companies that do not test on animals. The full list can be found on Peta.org.
- Bare Escentuals
- Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare
- Everyday Minerals
- Physicians Formula
- Tarte Cosmetics
- Urban Decay

The Essie Wedding collection for 2014 is so delicate and dainty! I was totally excited when these came in, since I’m planning my own wedding (only 415 days to go woo!), I wanted to swatch these cuties asap!
Essie love every minute is a pretty satin rose coral. It’s my favorite color in the collection. It looks like a pastel salmon and it’s a perfect shade for spring.
Essie meet the parents is a cool calm blue, a little too calm for the name I think. There’s nothing calm about meeting the parents for the first time! It is however, the perfect something blue for your big day.
Essie got engaged is a warm nude pink with a “barely there” sparkle effect. I think I found the perfect nude nail polish, it works so well with my complexion because it has the perfect balance of nude and pink.
Essie she said yes is a sheer white color with a subtle silver shimmer. It’s an interesting shade, it’s not very bright, it’s toned down enough so that’s it’s not clashing with the other pastels in the collection. The formula is creamy, but with the consistency of glue. I had to apply three coats, and I must say that it was hard to work with.
Essie Wedding Collection 2014 offers a good range of colors to choose from, whether you’re the bride, a bridesmaid or simply a wedding guest, this collection will get you wedding ready in no time. These colors are also great for spring. Available April 2014.
