SinfulColors Kiss Goodnight + Gold n’ Roses

Happy Wednesday loves!

Hope you’re all having a great week.

I wanted to combine 2 nail polishes together and go figure, they’re both Sinful Colors. I used Sinful Colors Kandee Johnson “Kiss Goodnight” as the base and for the top, I used Sinful Colors “Gold n’ Roses”.

When I first saw Gold n’ Roses, I thought it would be a beautiful metallic rose gold color but when I first applied it, it was really sheer. I figured I would use it as a glitter or accent polish. I love how the 2 colors give off that pretty light blue with rose gold glitter.

What do you guys think?!

 

Influenster Fierce Voxbox

Happy Monday loves!

Hope you all had a great weekend.

I think by now you’ve heard of Influenster by now, but if you haven’t, its a review type of website and if you’re lucky enough you can get a freebie box. It always changes from foods, beauty, fashion or even a mixture of both! Every time you finish these badges, you can get qualified for another Voxbox.

I was lucky enough to get the Fierce Voxbox which included:

Shea Moisture Argan Oil & Almond Milk Shampoo and Blow Out Creme

I love using Shea Moisture and trying out new products from their line. The shampoo and blow out are both made from Argan Oil, organic shea butter and almond milk. It smells so good! Retail price for the blow out creme is $10.99 and the shampoo is $8.99

Sinful Colors Kandee Johnson Anime “Kiss Goodnight”

I really can’t get over this color! Kandee Johnson was the first youtube beauty guru I ever watched. So to see her progress and collab with Sinful Colors, I was ecstatic that this came in the VoxBox! I’ve seen them sold at Walgreens for $1.99.

Madam C.J. Walker Softening & Silkening Brassica Seed Oil

It’s a lightweight hair oil that smooths and creates terrific shine for heat-styled hair. It has a light blend of spun sugar and red velvet cream to refresh hair. I love to use this for my baby hairs that just can’t keep calm! This hair oil retails for $26 and can find it at Sephora.

Vaseline Jelly

I’ve been using Vaseline ever since I was a kid, it’s never gone out of style. I just recently started to use Vaseline for my night cream. It’s still too soon to see results but I’m excited! You can find this at any store for around $2.50 depending on where you shop.

Sinful Colors Kandee Johnson “Kiss Goodnight”

Happy Monday loves.

Hope your weekend was fun and unstressful!

Kandee Johnson, makeup blogger and vlogger, collaborated with Sinful Colors in 2 different lines! I pretty much “eeked” when I found this polish in my Influenster Fierce VoxBox. I applied this nail polish on Wednesday and it hasn’t chipped, which never happens! I tend to use my hands for work, so my polish usually chips without a doubt.

It’s such a pretty color! Its a baby blue with tiny iridescent glitter and only used 2 coats (mind you, I didn’t apply a top coat either).

This is the Sinful Colors Kandee Johnson Anime Collection “Kiss Goodnight”.This is no doubt a spring color I look forward to wear again.


What do you gals think?! Anyone else get the Influenster Fierce VoxBox? I would love to know what other colors you got! 🙂

 

 

L’Oreal Ever Pure Moisture Care Review

Happy Wednesday loves!

I recently took the plunge and dyed my hair a medium red brown, so when Influenster sent me the L’Oreal Ever Pure Moisture Shampoo, Conditioner and 10-in-1 Elixir, I couldn’t have been more excited! I don’t know about you, but when I dye my hair, I feel like sometimes the color dies down and fades away within a few weeks. Or maybe that’s just the reds. :p

img_1968

The Claims:

*For the Shampoo and Conditioner, it claims that it’s a moisturizing formula with Rosemary flower botanical that quenches dryness,and keeps color pure for up to 4 weeks.

*Elixir: Nourishes, Hydrates, Soothes, Repairs, Density, Smooth, Textures, Strengthens, more softness and adds shine.

img_1967

**100% Sulfate-Free, Paraben-Free, Free of Harsh Salts and Dye-Free

My Impressions:

I personally love it. The shampoo and conditioner both smell heavenly (a hint of rosemary and floral scents). My favorite would have to be the 10-in-1 elixir. It really did make my hair feel softer and hydrated.

I definitely look forward trying the Deep Nourishing, Repair & Defend and the Frizz-Defy lines!

 

**I received these products complimentary for testing purposes and these are my own opinions**

Influenster’s Frosty VoxBox Review

Hi Loves!

Hope you all are enjoying your Wednesday.

I was lucky enough to get picked this time for the Frosty VoxBox from Influenster. It’s been awhile since they sent me a VoxBox.

This Frosty Voxbox included:

*No7 Protect & Perfect Intense ADVANCED Sachet (Full Sized: $29.99)

A clinical proven serum that is more effective at reducing the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles for younger looking skin in two weeks. You can purchase this at Target. It also came in with a $2 off coupon.

no7 advanced

 

 

*NYC Expert Last Lip Color in Sugar Plum ($1.99)

There’s at least 20 different shades and it lasts up to 6 hours and is very moisturizing. Personally, I’m not a fan of Sugar Plum shade just because it doesn’t really show on me.

*Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Decaf Green Tea

It came with two green tea bags and it has a interesting taste actually. It’s made with finest green tea leaves, peppermint and other botanicals. I’ll find a way to make a relaxing hot drink with it since it’s been cold for the past two days in SoCal!

*EcoTools Hair Brush ($10.99)

There are five different types of brush head shapes that belong to the EcoTools Hair Brush line. I received the Full Volume Styler. It’s ultra comfort, and has a lightweight design which creates gorgeous volume and style. It distributes hair’s natural moisturizers for ultimate shine  while it nurtures hair and scalp.

*Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover ($7.49)

It gently removes all eye makeup including long wearing mascara without any oily residue. It really works wonders especially when removing a smokey eye look.

*Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner ($4.49)

This eyeliner is ultra smooth and has a creamy formula that easily glides. The shade I received is 001 Black. I personally am not really a fan unless I lightly heat up the liner before I use it.

*McCormick Gourmet Thyme ($4.79)

It has a light minty flavor that is distinctively warm and aromatic. It can be used in breakfast casseroles, hearty soups, stews, stuffing and oven-roasted chicken. I personally am going to use this for a Greek Yogurt Ranch dressing and a Mixed Greens Lasagna.

*Fruit Vines Bites ($1.28-$1.79)

They are a new, soft, chewy fruit candy from the Red Vines family and it comes with two available flavors: strawberry and cherry. They are low far and made with no preservatives. It comes in three different sizes: 2oz single bag, a 5 oz hanging bag and a 10 oz resealable stand up bag and can be found at Walmart, Walgreens, Target and Rite Aid. I got the cherry flavor and since I’m not a cherry fan, I may give it to my sister. lol

Dr. Scholl’s For Her Cozy Cushions Review

Hi loves!

I hope everyone is doing great! Good luck to everyone who has finals this week! 🙂

When I got the Influenster RoseVoxBox, I was sent the Dr. Scholl’s For Her Cozy Cushions Insoles. I pretty much love them!

DSC02950

 

The Benefit and Claims:

*Helps keep feet warm and dry

*Provides all-day comfort and support good for any season

*Adds renewed comfort in your footwear

*Works great in any boot or casual shoe

*Multi-layer design insulates against cold and dampness while absorbing perspiration

*Two plush layers provide extra cushioning comfort

*Designed to fit: Rain boots, Winter boots, casual boots and shoes, and dress boots

*Available in Women (sizes 6-10)

How to Use:

Make sure the fuzzy side is next to your foot

Trim the insoles so that it fits your shoe

My Opinion:

I honestly love them. Only problem I had was that it was kind of hard to trim. Maybe it was my scissors. They’re very cozy just like the title. I love that I can actually wear my boots with no socks and I don’t have to worry about the aftermath. Another plus is that because my boots are a size 8 and I naturally wear a size 7.5, so when I did put the insoles in my boots, it turned out to be a better fit as well!

 

Rimmel Retro Glam Mascara

Hey Lovies!

Influenster and Rimmel were kind enough to send me a complimentary Rimmel Retro Glam Mascara that was in my Rose VoxBox. This comes into stores November 2013!

DSC02946

Here are a few pictures showing how the wand but the photos don’t do it justice at all! lol

Photo 4

 

Photo 3 (1)

It’s an hourglass shaped wand where the middle is thinner.

I  only have two cons I have with this is that

1. when you take out the wand, there’s so much excess mascara.

2. It’s really hard to apply the mascara on the bottom lashes.  I feel like the wand is really big that I might poke my eye with it especially if you have long bottom  lashes.

Grrr.

But other than that, I love it! It gives an illusion that your eyes have a wide look (which is great for me since I have small eyes). *Forgive my blah eyebrows*

PicMonkey Collage

As you can tell, there’s quite a difference when I’m not wearing the mascara and when I am.

*TIPS*

-Tightline your eyes before you apply the mascara

-Use an eyelash curler before you apply the mascara

-If you can find it, buy an eyelash guard where you can place it on your eye as you apply the mascara so you don’t get any excess on your lids.

I wanted to try a makeup look with the mascara so I tried this out!

It’s the WetnWild 2013 Holiday Limited Edition “No Neutral Ground”.

Dr. Scholls Active Series Review

Hey Loveys!

Influenster was nice enough to invite me to review the Dr. Scholls Active Series Voxbox. It specializes in the triple zone protection.

Ball of the Foot: there’s a thick ball of foot that distributes pressure throughout the push-off

Arch: A unique design improves transition of weight from landing to push-off

and the

Heel: heal pad absorbs impact yet is very responsive.

*SweatMAX technology helps eliminate odor.

According to the package, it says: During athletic activity, the foot is subject to the shock from impact of 2-3 times your body weigh with ever step. Active Series insoles reduce shock by 40% and, for those with Shin Splints (very very painful), Runner’s Knee and Plantar Fasciitis, helps relieve and prevent the pain.

IMG_6016 (1)

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Pull out the insole that came in your shoe (thats very very hard to do)

2. Place it on top of Active Series insoles with the heels lined up and both topcloths facing up

3. Trim the toe area along the line.  (I didn’t need to do that)

and 4. Slip Active Series insole into your shoe with fabric facing up .

This is the finished product:

IMG_0843

My Opinion:

I liked these very much. It wasn’t hard to take off the other insoles though. I had to use a knife to take it off. haha Do use knife very carefully. I did feel a very big difference when I used them. Less pressure, especially after walking in them the whole day while I was at Knotts Berry Farm. I would advise anyone who loves to workout or run, should invest in these. And oh you should always replace insoles every 6 months or at the first signs of tear. Now that’s a first for me! I learned something new. haha That I had no idea you were supposed to do that.

**Disclosure: I got received this product complimentary from Influenster**
