I'm a mom, writer, maker of geeky things, wearer of costumes and blogger at GeekMamas.com. I love doing product reviews and writing about my first-time mom experience. I have a degree in journalism and a work background in promotional marketing. I owned a successful costume design business and boutique for 11 years before closing to become a stay-at-home-mom and immerse myself in this amazing experience. So now I write to stay sane through the craziness of parenting.
Absolutely love this product. If I don't have time for anything else, I put this on. It cuts down my make-up time since it does half the work before I even add concealer. It de-puffs and brightens my under eyes immediately, and makes the area sooth and prepped to add make-up over it if needed.
The Tim tams were yummy and crispy but a little too sweet for me. I ate too many trying to do the Tim Tam slam and take a good photo and I think maybe 2 is a good limit lol. They made my coffee taste a little bitter because they are so sweet. So I found them to be a better little side snack when I wanted something sweet and chocolatey rather than something to go with my coffee.
I do a lot of costumey stuff and my go-to color is Fly Girl. Lip Sense lives up to the hype and stays on all day! I have a tendency to nibble at my lips so regular lipstick lasts about 2 minutes on me. I use the glossy gloss over it and reapply as needed. I usually do 2 layers of color instead of the recommended 3. I find when I do 3, it gets streaky sometimes later in the day. I just recently got blue red and can’t wait to give that a try!
Loved the ginger and peach herbal tea! Very refreshing and not too heavily ginger or peach flavored. Just a nice light taste and lovely smell. It tasted as good chilled as it did hot. My toddler even tried a few sips and deemed it “ok”.
It's exactly as described on the can - fresh cut golden and sweet! Del Monte makes a nice crisp corn that makes a great side dish or goes well in recipes. I like to add it to my garden chili for a dash of nice bright yellow color. I'd definitely recommend this card to others.
I wanted to try something different and I️ really liked these! I zapped them for 10-15 seconds in the microwave, then coated the bottom with a thin layer of heated refried beans. Next I added taco meat, cheese, salsa and a lot of lettuce. I topped it with French’s crispy jalapeños and a little cucumber ranch sauce. Yum! They held up well and held everything in. I will definitely be using them again!
These things are spicy! Which is just how I'd hoped they'd be. They are crunchy and delicious. I would have given them 5 stars if they were just a little bigger and chunkier. However, I have only tried them as a topping so the smaller size may be preferable when using them in a recipe or baking. I liked that they were crisp and not greasy. And I'm serious about the spice. I was nibbling them out of the container and they were hot hot hot!
Whenever I do makeup for a costume or anything dress-up, I don't feel complete unless I have lashes! Ardel makes a nice lash that doesn't fall apart after one use. I can usually get several uses out of each set. I always cut them a little shorter and either use the outer edges as a separate lash set or layer them for a more dramatic look on the outer edges.
I really liked the Schwarzkopf BLONDME Tone Enhancing Bonding Mask for Cool Blondes. It brightened my colored blond and conditioned really well. Usually when I use this type of stuff I have to use my favorite conditioner afterwards so I can get a comb through my unruly curls. But I didn't need an additional conditioner! So I was impressed. I even tried some on my son's beautiful natural blond hair and it brought out the blond tones even more than usual.
