I received a sample of the Maybelline Master Precise Ink liner in exchange for a review. I loved the Cosmic Purple color, which has a hint of glitter. The applicator has a nice handle that is easy to get a firm grip on, making drawing the liner into a smooth straight line much easier than other applicators. The only thing I disliked was that if I messed up or needed to go over the line to build it up then I had a smudge, and I had to start over. The product does not "layer" on itself very well. The liner lasted the full 8-hour day, but not much longer, so I disagreed with 24 hours, but I never wear makeup 24 hours anyway, so this is ok with me.
The gunmetal color looks very purple in the tube, but going on is more subdued pewterish color. I wished it were more like the purple metallic that it looks like in tube. The lipstick goes on smooth and stays fairly long. I recommend using a lip liner to even out the application, especially because of the darker color. I will buy Maybelline Color Sensation again, but would probably buy a more natural looking color. I received a free sample of this product in exchange for my opinion.
Love love LOVE my NuFace device. I use it with the red light attachment 5x's a week to help reduce the appearance of aging. It is super easy to use. Just hold the attachment to your skin and wait for the beep to tell you to move to a different area. I usually surf the web or watch TV while using NuFace. One session takes 20 minutes. I get many compliments and people think I am much younger than I am. I like to think that NuFace and sunscreen are big reasons why.
Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion exfoliating cream is a dream product. I could not be happier with the results. It is a bit more expensive, so I usually look for it to go on promotion. I have used this as often as every day or once a week, both with terrific results. The scent reminds me of a upscale spa, and the texture of the scrub is teeeeeeeeny...so that it won't scrape or scratch the skin as some scrubs with large chunks in them will do. My face always looks brighter and reenergized after I use this product.
I got to trial the COOLA cucumber spray last year in the small size can, and I bought several of the other scents in the larger sizes since then, because I loved the smell, the protection, and how my skin felt after using the product. The price made me balk at first, but when I saw how a small can of COOLA lasted as long as a larger can of the regular drugstore sunscreen sprays, plus it smells so good and makes my skin soft and hydrated....I am a huge fan of COOLA now, and I take it with me everywhere I go. If you are unsure, start with the 3 oz bottle. The cucumber has a very fresh and light scent that I love.
GLAMGLOW is a very luxurious product...totally worth the extremely high price. I use this when I want to pamper myself, and I am always pleased with the results. My skin looks brighter, younger, and renewed. I never need to use a lot and can stretch the small container over many uses.
Dr. Bronner's peppermint castile soap is my go-to body wash. One of the things I like about it the most is sometimes the thing that people don't like...it has a tingly sensation due to the real peppermint in the product. This makes for a great "wake-up" routine for my morning shower. It also smells very nice. I have only used it as a body wash, but this soap has numerous uses.
I bought these C9 hand weights in multiple sizes: 5, 8, 10, 12, and I use them regularly for my workouts as well as coach a few friends and family members, and I have them use these weights. They have stayed in great condition over the year, and the Neoprene texture helps to keep a steady grip, even while moving around in different workouts. Love that the sides have a flat surface so that we can do plank to row with them...makes it much easier than a rounded side like most weights.
Won't leave home without it , and I even got it for my friends. This BB cream goes on silky smooth and covers well without looking thick and heavy. Easily covers imperfections in my skin tone. Try this. You may immediately fall in love.
