Last week, I had the pleasure of spending some time with style and beauty guru Bobbie Thomas at this adorable little coffee shop in Georgetown called Patisserie Poupon. She was so candid with me that I was actually taken aback a little bit. We sat on the patio, drank coffee and nibbled on salad and gabbed like we were old friends. Luckily for me (and you…) she brought a bunch of beauty goodies with her and filled me in on what’s hot for summer in the world of beauty.
Venus Spa Breeze AMAZING! This is the first ever disposable razor with shave gel bars! A true double duty beauty item, perfect for the gal-on-the-go. No shave gel needed….PLUS you can take them on the plane!
TourQuam Magnet Makeup Brush $40.00 It has a magnet inside so the brush picks up just the right amount of powder. Since all powders have a magnetic base, iron oxide, the magnet inside helps attract it to the bristles.
Ramy’s Lip Oil $18.00 I LOOOVE this one especially the peppermint one! Lip Oils are formulated with calming jojoba and almond oils that moisturize even the roughest lips to create a smooth and ideal smile.

Forget about not wanting to kiss and tell – you’ll have to kiss someone to tell what this lipstick looks like on them
Dr. Kiss By Vanity Mark $12.00 It has a satiny, breathable finish, with the healthiest of lip-moisturizing ingredients (like kukui nut oil and vitamins A, C and E). And it just screams innocence with its gentle vanilla-mint flavor and “mood” tinting effect that turns lips naturally, subtly pink.

Oscar Blandi Pronto Root & Highlight Pen $23.00 Oscar Blandi presents the Pronto Colore Root Touch-Up & Highlighting Pen for a natural-looking, quick way to cover grey and keep roots at bay between hair color appointments. On average, hair grows 1/2″ per month, making it almost impossible to keep up with re-growth through regular color touch-ups. Pronto Colore is a groundbreaking solution for seamless color care, from overall root touch-up, to erasing those grey strands that seem to appear overnight—plus it’s commitment-free because it washes out the next time you shampoo.
