*Press Sample*

Hey guys, today I also have an indie polish review/swatch for you today. I was sent these two shades from the Daphine Polish Christmas collection. You can view that here on her Etsy shop.

I have Poinsettia and Skating to share today.

Poinsettia was definitely one I would not have chosen for myself as I’m not a fan of reds, but swatching it, I had a very different opinion on it! I came to like it very much!

Skating is very much so what I would have chosen for myself, I love glitters and the dimension of this one is really pretty. It’s a perfect polish to layer over any color you can imagine!

The first polish to show is Poinsettia, a reddish brick-orange creme with a slight holographic tint to it. It is much more pretty on the nail than in the bottle! I can did two coats for this.

The next one I swatched is Skating, a gorgeous blue glitter polish. It has some diamond shaped holo glitter, multi-sized and colored blue glitter with a gold iridescent base. There’s so many possibilities to layer this over things! For this swatch I used the sponge method, which you can view that here.

Becca Cosmetics-The One Perfecting Brush Review

Screen Shot 2013-11-19 at 2.41.53 PMpress sample iconGood Afternoon Ladies (& Gents)!

I have a brush to review today that was sent to me from iFabbo and I am pretty excited to share it with you guys.

This product is called The One Perfecting Brush by Becca Cosmetics, which promises to have the ability to replace the function of 10 different makeup tools.

My first impression of this brush was definitely the quality of the product itself. The brushes’ unique shape; to the bristles, it does not seem to be made with ANY cheap materials.

Perlier Imperial Honey Body Butter Review

Screen Shot 2013-11-08 at 1.03.59 PM

Good Afternoon!

Today I have a product that I got the opportunity to try out thanks to ifabbo! I received the Imperial Honey body butter, it is supposed to be a nourishing body butter made with honey from rare Black Bees and is combined with Royal Jelly. On a side not  I honestly didn’t even know black bees exsisted! They describe the smell of this body butter as hints of honey with the scent of Oriental woods, saying this I am not a fan of the scent. I was quite over-thrown with the scent at first. It was definitely something I have never smelled before. The smell I can get past because I feel the formula is quite accurate and it is very moisturizing. At first it its a little greasy but it absorbs into your hands and leaves your hands soft. (I use it to moisturize my hands only.) On a side note my boyfriend loves lotions more than I do and he approves of this body butter with the exception of the smell!

Price wise, it is expensive. This product gives you 6.5 fl. oz for $40 + $4.96 S/H which you can purchase through HSN website. (Not an affiliate link) If you are looking for a quality product this would be for you! If you are interested I have a coupon for it on HSN.com, enter: iFabbo5 for $5 off your Perlier purchase!

BA STAR Lip Pencil Review In Holiday Red

*Press Sample

DSC00885Hello!

A week again BA STAR makeup sent me lip pencil and now I’m sharing my results with you!

First thing I noticed about this pencil was how red it is! It feels really nice and smooth on your lips. I’ve been wearing it

each time I leave the house and I definitely stand out!  The shade name; Holiday Red really fits this as it reminds me of a Christmas Red. If you are wondering this is a pink based red and lasts all day, and stains my lips a little, which I like if I’m going  to be wearing something throughout the day. I would definitely have to say this is my favorite red I have and not only that It’s fun to apply!

This lip pencil retails for $8.75 but I have a 50% off Coupon code to share if  you’d like to pick this up! Enter: BBLIPS at checkout and check out http://bastar.com (Not affiliate linkThey have wonderful products, loved everything from them, so thanks to them again for sending me my new favorite red lip shade!

Kiss Disney’s Villain’s Nail Art Kit Review in Ursula

*press sample

Good Afternoon!! Today I am excited to share  Disney’s Ursula Villains Nail art kit by Kiss.

There are 4 wonderful sets inspired by Disney’s villains. With this kit you will receive caviar beads, a flat brush, kiss top cat, striping tape, rhinestones, stickers, a orange/cuticle stick,  and 6 bags of glitter. There is a lot of materials to create looks as you can see below.   These kits  come out this month at Walgreens for $9.99, although I’ve heard some have already found these kits. I have press pictures in a separate post that you can view here.

I was sent Ursula about a week ago and I have been playing around with this kit A LOT. I had originally purchased false nails to have more nail “play room” and after a while I kind of missed my stubs, so I took them off when they were loose and started doing some manicures without them.

Olay Fresh Effects Shine Minimizing Cleanser

olay picFINAL

Good Afternoon! Today I have another product from the Influenster Paradise VoxBox that was sent to me. Link will be at end of post if you’d like to see what else I received! The product I’m sharing today is the (Shine, Shine Go Away) Minimizing Cleanser. I use this face wash about 3 or 4 times a week as whenever I use a new face product, my skin dries out. They have a moisturizer in this line which I’d love to try out in conjunction to this product. 

The first time I tried out this product, it was right before bed to remove extra makeup that may have been on my face. When I awoke the next morning, I was surprised how nice my skin looked. It looked completely free of shine so my skin looked very “matte.” I have oily skin and when I wake up I sometimes already have shine on my t-zone and on my eyelids. I think that day I even would have skipped foundation!

I cannot express how great this product smells! (I’m one of those people who have to smell things.) It smells like a subtle floral mist spray leaving your skin smelling super fresh!

You can check out the Olay brand here www.olayfresheffects.com to check out more about the Fresh Effects line!

XOXO- Thanks for reading

Healthy Eats with Lifeway Kefir!

kefir and berries

*Received this product complimentary through the Influenster VoxBox program

Good Afternoon! Im fully aware that this is a beauty blog, but how can you have total beauty without eating healthy??? Influenster sent berries and yogurt me this product to try out and I absolutely love it. I’ve tried it out twice and the first flavor was Blueberry, which was good but little too tangy for me. This flavor Pomegranate is really good. It is sweet and doesn’t have any tanginess to it. This flavor is a winner. They say you can drink it straight or put it in cereal, but I love it drizzled over some frozen fruit and if I had some granola at

the time I would have added that too!! Thanks to them for letting me try it out. You can check out all their products here! @lifeway.net Theres a coupon for $1 off a product on the website!! Check them out.!

XOXOXO- As always thanks for reading. berries 2
