Sheer Cover Review

Press Sample

Dolls I have an amazing product I have to show you! I just want you to know I am in love with most make-up especially makeup that makes me feel comfortable in my own skin. So when it comes to foundations it can be a bit of a challenge for me because of my skin. I either it feels like frosting on my face or it's shinny. So I tried mineral makeup but it would leave me looking ashy or just sat on my face not covering nothing.  But not this, Sheer Cover actually was easy to use and did wonders for my skin let me break it down.

Let it Snow Winter Nail Art Challenge Day 1 Thanksgiving


So today's theme is Thanksgiving and I am sooooo ready! I don't know what I love more about the holidays the food, family, or all the festive decor.

For today's challenge I figured I'd do one of my favorite turkey designs that the beautiful Miss Jen Fabulous did last year that I am just in love with, but I also decided to make it my own and mix it up a little bit.

Maybelline SuperStay 10HR Stain Gloss Review Part 1

Purchased by me.

Today I want to show you some lip stains that I picked up a while ago at CVS when they were on sale. I love CVS when it comes to drug store cosmetics because they always have great sales here and there so when I saw Maybelline's SuperStay 10HR Stain Gloss for 75% off I went a little crazy and bought them all. So today I'm going to show you 5 of the 10 I picked up.


I won't lie when I picked these up I wasn't sure how they'd turn out, it you'd be able to see any color, if they'd dry out my lips or if they'd even last the 10 hours they claimed. So first thing first did they stain?....

Temptu

Brand Write up





How can I say this brand excites me without getting all totally girl thinking about boy band crazy?! I first came across airbrushing when I was in beauty school and I can't lie when I first heard of air brushing make up my first thought was someone trusts me to spray paint their face? They are going to look like an Avatar. Needless to say I rocked it out and it's nothing like a can of spray paint. Airbrushing makes skin looking flawless easy and the feeling is truly amazing. Plus no overload of brushes to clean or touching of ones face.

I first set my eyes on this brand when I was at a hair show in Orlando this year and the things I saw them do with this machine was amazing! The fact that they can create a soft and elegant bridal look to movie star vixen or the one that blew me away was how simple they made contouring. And the fact when I got to try it out I was able to use it easily blew me away.

ASAP Daily Exfoliating Facial Scrub review

Press Sample

Everyday I come across products that I'm like "yea it's okay" or "ehh" or "what am I doing to myself?!", then I come across products that I'm like "Where have you been my whole life!!?" That is exactly how I feel about ASAP Skin Products. ASAP skin products are made in Australia, so not only do they have gorgeous guys with accents they have amazing skin care, it may almost be worth taking on some crazy deadly creatures.

Coola WOW!!

Press Sample

Have you ever come across a product you don't know how you ever could live without? Yea, that's my relationship I have with Coola. Coola is an amazing sun care that spoils your skin in the oh so nicest ways.

Your probably wonder why I'm taking to you about sunscreen when fall is upon us, right? Because no matter if you see the sun or not doesn't mean it's not there. Dolls, the skin is the largest organ of the human body so it's our job to protect it and cherish it because it's our biggest defense from most of the nasty outside the world throws at us.

So let me tell you why I love Coola so much. Let's talk about Coola's Body spf 30 Plumeria Moisturizer.

This body sunscreen is amazing! It's not like other sunscreens, it's light and airy and the Plumeria smells so good(if I could put my arm out and let you smell I would). It doesn't feel like that thick, greasy, smells like sunscreen, sunscreen. You actually want to go out and put this on it feels amazing why? Because besides for the scent you don't even know it's there. Did I mention it's organic and hypoallergenic?!

This is how they describe it...

Nourish and shield your skin from the sun and environment with this antioxidant-infused, SPF 30 sunscreen with broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection. Free radical fighting organic Rose Hip delivers essential Fatty Acids, Minerals and Vitamin C. Organic Evening Primrose and Linseed Oils, rich in Omegas-3 and 6 calms, tones, hydrates and reduces redness. Patented Oleosome Technology, derived from eco-certified organic Safflower and rich in moisturizing Vitamin E, enhances sun protection and helps time-release actives, resulting in 75% less actives! Organic Shea Butter, high   in Vitamins A and F smoothes, softens and balances skin. The phyto-protector Plankton Extract stimulates, organic Cucumber Extract calms and a light Plumeria scent keeps you fresh. Crafted with 70% Certified Organic inactive ingredients.
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Paraben Free
  • Ultra Sheer
  • Oxybenzone Free
  • No nano-sized particles 
 
 
Next let's talk about our face sunscreen. Coola's Face spf 30 Cucumber Moisturizer.
 I will be the first one to tell you I have the worst skin in the world. I was unluckily blessed with acne and at the age 26 it still plagues me and pregnancy hasn't made it any easier. So needless to say I hate putting sunscreen on my face, even though it's one of the most important places to put it. To me I put sunblock on my face and the next 5 minutes later I'm all oily and shiny, not a good look. On top of that I'll break out the next bad. But with this it's made for your face, it's made to help your skin at the same time as protecting it. Not only that I love the smell of the cucumber it's light and crisp, where the body was a lovely soft flowery sent. I don't know how I've lived without this.

Here's how they describe it...

Get environmental defense as you fight free radicals with this antioxidant enriched, SPF 30 sunscreen with broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection. Organic Acai Oil - high in Omegas-3/6/9, Vitamins B1/2/3 and Vitamins C and E - delivers powerful anti-aging benefits. Organic Evening Primrose and Linseed Oils reduce inflammation, even tone and balance moisture. Patented Oleosome Technology, derived from Safflower and rich in moisturizing Vitamin E, enhances sun protection and helps time-release actives, resulting in 75% less actives! The phyto-protector Plankton Extract stimulates and rejuvenates skin, while a refreshing Cucumber scent soothes the senses. Crafted with 70% Certified Organic inactive ingredients.
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Paraben Free
  • Ultra Sheer
  • Oxybenzone Free
  • Anti-Aging
  • No nano-sized particles

 These are amazing products that I'm very happy I've come across them. Also for my lovelies who don't like scented sunscreen these come in unscented too. Coola has alot of amazing sun care products for you.

These retail for $32.00 a bit pricey but totally worth it and a little goes a long way.

You can check out more Coola products on their site and also check out their Facebook and Twitter page to stay in the know, they have awesome giveaways.

Zoya's Zenith Winter/Holiday 2013 Collection

Press Samples

Today dolls if I had a feather you could knock me over, because today I have the Zoya Zenith Winter/Holiday 2013 Collection to share with you. What makes it even more of a perfect day to show you is because this feels like the first cold day of fall for this Florida gal. So without anymore yapping I give you the Zoya Zenith Collection.

We have to start with Payton.
Described as a full-coverage, galactic cranberry with holographic glitter. What more can I say but I love it! I love this cranberry color, I loved application, I love everything about this polish. Payton is a win win what more could you want with this color and the amazing holographic flake glitter enough said. I used 2 coats and just stared.
Now I give you Payton's brother Dream.
Described as a full-coverage, deep space blue with holographic glitter. I'm sitter here laughing wondering what I could possibly say about this color that you can't tell by the picture. Dream is a dream, just like Payton but a dreamy blue.
Next we have Seraphina.
 Described as a full-coverage, Polaris silver metallic. They bottled the pearly gates is what they did here. Seraphina is a pearly white with silver metallic shimmer. What amazed me most is it only took 2 coats, wasn't streaky, and it's amazing.
On to the next one, we have Belinda.
Described as a full-coverage, cosmic purple metallic. (Originally designed for designer Zang Toi / AW2013). Even thought I've seen this color over and over again, doesn't mean I don't like it, it's a beautiful color, but in end it's been done before.
Next we have Cassedy.
 Described as a full-coverage, celestial pewter metallic. Let's take a moment to just drool. How did they get this in a bottle. It's Seraphina but a deep grey! It took 2 coats and I felt like crying when taking it off.
Last but not least we have Mosheen.
 Described as an astro ice blue topper, great for layering over other hues. I layered it over Belinda to give her the little extra loving she needed to set her apart. This icy topper completes the collection to give it the over all chill factor it needed. It's fun and pretty and screams holiday party.
So in the end I'm sitting here wondering how in the world is Zoya going to top this? Can they top this?! If you need anything on your holiday list it's this, overall this gets a 19 out of 10 for me, if only Belinda could have blown me away.

So what are your thoughts on this collection? Is the whole thing as must need or only a couple of colors?

Zoya's Fall 2013 Satin Collection

Press Sample

Every year Zoya comes up with a fall collection I think that could never top the last and every year they do. Today I have Zoya's Satin Fall 2013 Collection to share and drool over.

Okay so lets dive in with Neve.
 Described as sapphire blue metallic (Originally designed for Zang Toi/AW13). When I look at Neve in the bottle I think okay it's a blue-purple but on the nail it's a beautiful blue with a hint of purple/pink some how mixed in to still be blue. I used 2 coats and application was flawless.
 Next is Channing.
Described as a rusty or coppery red metallic, I won't lie I love this polish for the name. It could have been the ugliest color and I would be in love with it for the name alone. But luckily, this is one amazing color. It's like a pretty metallic burnt orange, it took 2 coats to get this gorgeous.
 Now lets look at Claudine.
Described as a striking dark meteorite gray metallic. I love this color for fall, it truly make me feel fashionable. I used 2 coats and application again was perfect.
Now lets fawn over Mason.
Described as an exciting red violet or "Fandango Pink" metallic. How they manage to get this fabulous color in a bottle I will never know. They are secretly going how can we give Jessica a heart attack and my heart gave out with I applied this. 2 coats and that was it, I even had to put it on my toes.
Next we have Giovanna.
Described as a stunning emerald green metallic. The "IT COLOR" right now (Originally designed for Zang Toi/AW13). I love this peacock green!! But like all peacock greens it's a stainer(heartbroken), so wear, wear, wear, I repeat please wear a base coat, other than that rock this color!!
Last but not least we have the topper of the collection Maria Luisa.
Described as gold cellophane accent topper (Originally designed for Rafael Cennamo/AW13). I really like this gold topper and you can layer and layer till your heart gives out to get the perfect look you want. I only used 1 coat over Giovanna.
All in all for me this collection was a win. The name of the collection truly fits they are like satin for your names. Do you have a stand out color from this collection or do you need to grab them all?

Ultra long-wearing, nail lacquers by Zoya are BIG5FREE - all formulas are completely free of harmful industrial chemicals such as toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin and dibutyl phthalate (DBP) that are known to cause cancer and birth defects.
