Our Lord made every women beautiful

She is more precious than jewels, and nothing you desire can compare with her.

June 2012 Favorites!

Hi there friends! This is my second favorites video, and I'm starting to really like filming these types of videos over any other type! I'm glad I decided to start sharing my favorites!

Any-hoo, Here is what I have been loving, what are your June favorites??

1. Natural Radiance Wrinkle Reducer patches
-Not sure if these are actually work, because I don't have any wrinkles yet, but they are very cooling and calming on the eyes! Rid of dark circles over night.

2. MakeUpForEver Aqua Smoky Lash mascara
-The DRIEST mascara formula I have ever come across! Perfect for my short and sparse lashes, just wish it had a different price tag! LOL

3. Loreal Magic Souffle Smooth foundation
-The WEIRDEST foundation I have ever used. Looks like a cream, feels like a mousse, but dries to a powder consistency. This is THE BEST foundation for oily complexions during the summer.

4. Julep Daylight Defense SPF 30
-It is always hard to find the right SPF for summer because they tend to be too emollient. They make my oily skin more oily and even cause me to break out. Luckily, this SPF is PERFECT for oily/combo skin. It doesn't feel heavy at all and still provides great protection!

5. Julep Daylight Defense Lip Balm
-I don't care much for SPF in lip balms but I added this to my favorites because I can't get enough of the flavor! It tastes JUST like chocolate after eat mints!! YUM

6. Black Eyeshadow!
-Using black eyeshadow was a bad idea in the past for me. I could never blend it right and it looked patchy and messy and dirty... but I have been practicing and getting the hang of it-- now I can't help but use black in every eye look lately!!

7. Bullet Blending Brush - Coastal Scents
-Using a small little bullet brush like this has made using black eyeshadow so much easier!

8. Broadway Nails Impress Manicure in Love Bites
-This is the second time I've used these types of nails and they lasted so much longer this time around!! It must have been the way I applied last time.. But these lasted a whole 8 days!! Even after dish washing, chores, bathing dogs, etc.

Happy start to July!!

Use up Those Products!!

I wanted to share with all of you. I know this happens to me A LOT! 

I buy a product thinking I'll love it, but it doesn't work out that well and ends up being tossed to the back of a makeup drawer and never sees the light of day again!! 

Instead, I've been trying to use up those kinds of products in one way or another so my money doesn't go to waste and this is what I've come up with for three particular products.

1. Garnier Skin Renew BB Cream in Medium/Deep. -- This was too moist for my oily skin and the shade oxidized horribly with my already reddish undertones.

2. Hard Candy Glamoflauge  Concealer in Medium -- This concealer is very thick and pasty, and though the color is Medium, it is still way too light for my complexion (Emphasis on WAY TOO LIGHT!)

3. CoverGirl Original Setting Powder in Translucent Honey -- I usually use this powder in the same color but in the Clean formula, not Original. Between the formulas, the color is way off. The clean formula is a light caramel shade while the Original formula is more of a tan bronze shade. I might be able to use as a bronzer, but I don't bronze my face too often.

I mixed the BB Cream and the concealer that made a nice match of my normal foundation with a just in between consistency! Though it was a little on the light side, that wasn't a problem because I used the darker powder to even out my complexion.

How do you make use of unwanted products??

Incoco Nail Appliques: Prom Perfect Edition

I'm sure most of you know by now that I am obsessed with Twitter giveaways and surprisingly, I win often! I was lucky enough to win a pack of Incoco nail appliques and was given the limited edition Prom Perfect Pack! 

I had never tried Incoco nail stickers until winning them and here are my thoughts on them.

Price: Range from $8-$15 depending on style

Available at: Incoco.com

Selection: More than 50 shades, styles, and designs

Application: Applied somewhat easily. Had to stretch to fit which made the strip really thin and not at all attractive. CON~ Must keep away from heat or they won't stick, but must also keep away from cold or they won't stick. Just very inconvenient. Strip size was far too big to even fit half the design on my nail.

Removal: Removes with polish remover or acetone. My glitter appliques were just as annoying to get off as real glitter polish

How long did they last? These were supposed to last up to 3 weeks. They lasted about one before a few fingers chipped off completely in one whole piece! I think it might have been because of the glitter; glitter chips in whole pieces.

Worth the price? For some designs, maybe. I haven't seen any other nail sticker companies offer Ombre style appliques and Incoco does. But I would prefer the smaller sizes of the other companies for my itty bitty fingers.

Would I purchase: Maybe, if they had something I really could not find anywhere else.
