New product finds!
So I was bored today and went to do a little shopping at my local mall, and went into Macy’s to look at some shoes, and while walking through the makeup counters I got stopped by a nice girl who worked for Urban Decay. (I won’t lie, Urban is one of my favorite brands.) So I stopped to hear her out. She wanted to show me their brow product because she saw that my brows have some sparse areas that needed filling in. I usually fill them in with a MAC eyeshadow to make them even and a little darker, but I wasn’t wearing makeup today so I was au naturale. She offered to show me their Brow Box product so she put it on for me and I actually liked it a lot. She showed me their new Naked Lip glosses too and I love their non sticky moisturizing feeling with the great glossy and long lasting shine that goes great with makeup! The Brow Box is a really great product though. Here’s the break down for you: It comes with a light shade and a dark shade of powder to color the brows, a wax product to mix with the powders to help the brows stay in place and apply color evenly and effectively, angled brushes to apply the different colored powders and wax, and a set of tweezers to perfect brows quickly and easily! It was only $29 and I was very impressed! You first smudge your angled brush into the wax, and then you apply some of the powder on whatever color you want (you can even mix between both colors.) Then you smoothly apply the product to your brows in strokes across the brows, making sure to fill in any sparse areas and you’re set! It is an easy to use product that works well and is easy to keep with you or in a small makeup bag! I recommend picking one up if you need a good brow product that doesn’t necessarily break the bank! I don’t know the price of the lipgloss but the tube is a very decent size so it’s probably a good deal! I will update you on some other products that I like soon! I’m going to be picking up some skin care items soon so I will have reviews coming up for those too!
My new cute business cards! Quite the upgrade from the original ones! The little slip of paper in the middle is to block out my phone number from strangers! Sorry! Haha. What do you guys think?
Getting a new phone soon and I can’t wait! Woohoo! Saturday can’t get here any quicker! My new iPhone 5S won’t have battery issues and will actually be fast since it will have 4GLTE! Yay!
I started wearing makeup again and so I decided to invest in some fun products! I bought a Beauty Blender makeup applicator, Urban Decay Beauty Balm, a new eye smudger brush from Mary Kay, and brush cleaner from Mary Kay. Soon I am going to order some products from Youngblood, and I am finally getting my MAC Pro membership so I can get discounted products from them! I have been holding off from getting stuff from MAC because I knew that I would waste money getting it now. But soon it will be fair game! I’m thinking of doing some makeup tutorials for my YouTube site soon. What would you all like to see? Oh and I will post pics of my new business cards for you all to see as soon as they arrive!
On my quest for perfect skin I have not been wearing makeup so I can better see my results. But I realize that it doesn’t really do very much for me. I would much rather wear makeup and look better, so I have decided to start wearing it daily again! I am trying to buy some new products so that I can make the whole process a little quicker. On my list of products to buy I am getting Mary Kay Brush Cleaner, Dermalogica Precleanse Wipes, and Urban Decay Naked Beauty Balm! The brush cleaner will make my brush cleaning easier so I don’t have to constantly clean my brushes in the sink, and Precleanse wipes will cleanse my face naturally and quickly without drying it out which makes washing my face in the morning a lot easier, and the Beauty Balm will help me perfect my skin in one easy step! I’m going to make my mornings easier and investing in these products is just the beginning!

Sorry to be MIA for so long! It’s been a busy time of year at my work! Here are some of my current favorite products:
-Alterna Caviar Replenishing Moisture Shampoo + Conditioner
-Dermorganic Soapless Facial Cleanser and Facial Moisturizer
-Pravana Vivids Violet Semi Permanent Hair Color
-Youngblood Mineral Primer for Foundation
The shampoo & conditioner works so well, it makes your hair super hydrated and healthy without weighing it down! The facial cleanser and moisturizer are great for hydrating winter warranted skin! I’m currently rocking a Purple tipped ombré, and Pravana Vivids has the best shade! And Youngbloods Mineral Primer helps keep primer in place and helps your foundation to blend more easily and diminish pores!
I will be posting again really soon! Any topics you want to see covered or that you have questions about please send them in! My ask is openly waiting for you!
So I recently got Moroccan Oil and started using it on my hair and I am in love, it’s exactly what my hair needed. Now I’m considering using it on my face. My skin is super sensitive though, even that Boscia Black Revitalizing Hydration Gel I blogged about a few days ago started causing me to break out. I may try it as an oil cleanse first and move on from there. Now I’m asking for your input, who has tried an oil cleanse, and what oils have you used? Has anyone tried Moroccan Oil? If so, how did it work for you? Looking forward to hearing your thoughts, answers, and stories!
Boscia Revitalizing Black Hydration Gel
A great product that you can easily buy at Sephora or online! This product is really quite nice! Feels great, hydrates without leaving a greasy look or feel, and smooths skin tone for easy makeup application! It comes out of the bottle black, and blends in, so don’t be alarmed at first! It has a cooling feeling that calms the skin and helps to shrink the pores as well! It’s paraben, sulfate, fragrance, dye, and pthalate free so it is more natural and safe for your skin even if you have sensitive skin or acne prone skin! It has charcoal in it to absorb excess oil and impurities to detoxify. It uses artichoke leaf extract to improve elasticity and help tighten pore walls, and glycolic acid to clarify skin and help smooth it. Vitamin C is used to brighten skin tone and minimize fine lines while it defends from free radical damage. So far I am please with the product, the only concern I have is with the packaging. It’s different but it doesn’t work effectively if you’re trying to use it until it runs out. When it gets low it’s difficult to salvage what it left without destroying the package, and since this product is known to go fast, it will be a common issue. Otherwise it’s a great buy! It would be perfect if they perfected the packaging! Grab a sample at Sephora soon and give it a spin for yourself!
