Hi! I'm Danielle :) I work in marketing for a large chain restaurant & I teach college courses for a hospitality program. I live with the cutest Biewer Yorkshire ever, Chet, in a fabulous apartment that I absolutely love!
I received this complimentary palette from Influenster. I love the colors - they're very rich...until you put the setting powder over them. It makes the colors quite dull. I don't even use it because it's not really necessary! My big issue with this is how hard it is to put on. Almost none of my brushes work with it & I end up putting it on with my finger, which gives it a smudgy/smoky look that's not really my style. I probably wouldn't purchase this palette because of that issue alone. And when you read the instructions for application, it appears as if you need Laura Mercier specific brushes for it to truly work.
While it never tastes identical to getting a cup directly from McDonald's, I have to say, the McCafe K-cups are quite high quality! These are probably my favorite K-cups, even over other brands like Starbucks. The roast is extremely drinkable, too!
I think that this blender is the best one that I have tried; however, I don't always love how it blends. Sometimes, I think it makes my makeup look a bit blotchy. I've tried it with different types of products (powders, liquids) and I just never find it to be perfect. It helps, though!
I have to say, this hot chocolate (yes, Swiss Miss) tastes infinitely better than a handcrafted peppermint hot chocolate from a coffee house. I would definitely recommend this hot chocolate & am quite obsessed with it. If you do not have a Keurig, it is also sold in packets with peppermint flavored marshmallows!
My hair is a bit ruined from styling is so often with a curling iron, and this dry oil is definitely helping heal my hair! It works very well when I use it on wet hair & then blowdry it. If I spray it lightly on my dry hair, it does have the tendency to look a bit greasy. A little goes a long way!
I used to use this lip liner in neutral, but it was a bit too orange for my skin tone & looked like I was wearing a liner; however, I just purchased nude and it was great! It's very close to a natural lip color and with a nice coat of gloss, it looked like I had fillers injected (my lips looked that big). It was very natural & you could not tell I was using lip liner.
I love this mascara! I have always used Maybelline Full & Soft but wanted to try something that would be a little bit thicker & darker. This definitely makes my eyelashes look very full & very dark (I used Blackest Black). The only issue was that it doesn't dry immediately, so be a bit careful about it leaving little black dots on your cheeks!
I absolutely love these cookies. Other than reminding me of being on an airplane, they're very good, not high in calorie, and are readily available in my area. I don't think that the price is necessarily always the lowest, but they're worth it.
I love this carpet cleaner! My dog likes to mark around the house when he's cranky, and this is the best carpet cleaner I have used! It was a bit pricey ($100) and the cleaner is not the cheapest (I buy the one with Oxyclean in it), but it is definitely worth the price! It gets the stains out very well -- I use a blacklight to double check after it has dried!
I only use Sensodyne because I actually really like the flavor! A lot of toothpastes have a gross, unnatural flavor to them, and I feel that this one is really nice and leaves a good after taste. I also really like the consistency of the toothpaste itself.
