Highlight, Illuminate, Glow

A few weeks ago during our cold winter spell in the Chicago area, I had an awesome girl’s day at Mojo Spa in Chicago and it was an AMAZING day to say the least!

Mojo Spa is cool spa where all the products are handmade. It all started with Amanda Kezios’s quest for the perfect lip balm. With her talents as a personal chef, she turned her passion into a business. She has created over 200 products with natural food ingredients and aromatherapy blends made with positive affirmations and healing crystals.

We popped in for manicures and pedicures. We were lucky they had a time to squeeze us in. Delia and Nikki were ready and set to make our nails and toes look new again.

The resident Makeup Artist Chelsea offered us a complimentary makeover with our service. She was very pleasant and chose a good selection of colors for our skin tones.

The Red Velvet Lipstick was my fave because red is my signature color. But today, I am going to tell you about the lluminata Illuminating Herbal Makeup, so check out the deats in The Glam It or Slam it.

Here’s the Glam: It is an herbal infused formula mixed with all kinds of goodness to help heal and rejuvenate the skin. It’s a 3-in-1 multifunctional product that primes, moisturizes and illuminates! It has light reflecting particles, which gives you a glow and highlight! The best part is, a little goes a long way and you can wear it alone or underneath your makeup. And if that was not enough…it’s handmade and smells some kind of amazing (but not overpowering). Oh yeah, drum roll please…it’s great for all skin tones (no ashy look here) and skin types!

The Slam: Insert happy face here 🙂 because I love everything about this product! Plus we had so much fun at Mojo Spa and it was something that we really needed. Thank goodness for snow days, good friends and great customer service!

My final grade for the lluminata Illuminating Herbal Makeup is totally a 5 out of 5 smooches…MUAH! If you are interested in purchasing the lluminata Illuminating Herbal Makeup it is $25, at mojospa.com or schedule a spa day with a makeover at Mojo Spa in Chicago… trust me, you won’t be sorry you’ll be refreshed… Happy Illuminating!
