I love this for a quick summer refresher. When I host my book club at my house we drink these after our discussions. It's very easy, no mess, no fuss, and it's mixed perfectly. I buy all flavors of bacardi cocktails but this is my favorite. I definitely recommend this product, give it try!
A few weeks back I had the pleasure of attending a local event called taste the macallan hosted by macallan. I tasted this sherry and I loved it. I never thought I'd be a sherry drinker, but I am sold.I purchased a bottle at the event and I bring it out when I want to provide my guests with a nice glass of sherry. It's not easy to come by in liquor stores but larger chains like binny's will order it for you.
This is my favorite moderately priced whiskey. I can tolerate it straight because it goes down super smooth. Sometimes I may add splash of ginger ale. My family has always enjoyed crown royal at our holiday gatherings and summertime barbecues. It's a great whiskey to sip. The best part about it is that in addition to going down smooth and rich... No hangover! ha!
I have a pretty extensive background with Maybelline eye pencils. I have not met a Maybelline pencil that I don’t like and this was no different. This pencil glides on very smoothly so you with not have to tug on your eye, always a plus! It’s creamy like a gel and it does not run. I received a nude colored eye liner in my vox box but I liked it so much that I went and purchased it in black. My one and only issue with this liner is that you will need to sharpen the pencil because it is not a twist up which I find odd !
This mascara has a very unique wand brush. It has a curved spoon like shape to it with silicone teeth that apply product to the lashes. When I applied it to my natural lashes I loved the results but because of the shape of the wand I kept getting it on my eyelid. It definitely pushes the lashes up and darkens them giving you more lift and volume but the waterproof part is slightly questionable. I got horrible panda eyes from this mascara! For me personally the best use for this mascara is using it to blend my natural lashes with my falsies.
This palette from Maybelline features 12 eyeshadows, mostly shimmers. I love the packaging on this product, it’s very cute and sturdy. What can I say? Packaging means a lot to me! Let me start by saying I don’t normally use drug store palettes and this is my first one. Before I was sent this palette I had heard a bit of buzz around it from the blogs and gurus on YouTube. I was very optimistic because the colors looked so pretty, but when I got my palette and swatched it I could already tell something wasn’t quite right for me. I wanted to do an eye look with this so bad and I tried several times but I just couldn’t get the colors to cooperate so I ditched that idea. I find this palette to be chalky, hard to blend and not consistent with pigmentation. What I mean by that is some of the gold shimmers are really pigmented but most of the others won’t even show up. I even used tried my old glycerin trick to try to get a little more color and it didn’t work at all. The only thing I really like about this palette is that if you look at the palette you will notice that the colors are put together in 3 quads and 4 trios or 6 duos to create versatile looks. The breakdown of the quads, trios and duos are excellent for beginners, but other than that I would not recommend this product, get back to the drawing board Maybelline!
This is my favorite foundation ever! I have used the liquid for years and I recently tried the stick and fell in love . This foundation is full coverage but does not look heavy or caked which I love . I'm a makeup artist and I use this for myself as well as my clients. This foundation also comes in a very impressive range of colors!
The moisturizer is very hydrating and light and sinks into the skin effortlessly which I love, I don't like my moisturizers to feel heavy or greasy so this was a big plus. However, I found the smell to be a bit overpowering for something that I'm going to put on my face. It was way too much of a perfume smell. I currently have a stuffy nose and it was still a lot for me which is too bad because otherwise this moisturizer would be THE ONE! I would still recommend it for anyone looking for an awesome moisturizer and doesn't mind the smell.
As for the serum, there was little to no smell. I expected the consistency to be thicker but it's a very light oil but as the name states, it is intensive. I reside in Chicago where the winters are harsh and can leave skin feeling cracked and dry even when you moisturize. I feel like this serum is an instant hydration fix. It also helps the moisturizer to glide right on. I would definitely purchase this product.
I absolutely love my camera. I am a makeup artist/ beauty blogger and I bought this camera for taking pics of my work and filming. I was initially attracted to the affordability of this camera but I'm so glad to have ended up with an awesome camera that takes high quality pictures. This camera is wifi enabled and I have the ability to upload directly from my camera which is a huge plus for me . The battery life is great and it charges quickly . This is a great camera for the price and I recommend it to beginners or anyone looking for quality and affordability. My one and only drawback is that the camera is a bit heavy in my opinion.
