Hey! I'm Chelle. I'm a pro hooker (crochet doll artist haha) and MAJOR beauty/makeup junkie!! I'm particularly obsessed with lip products in all shapes, forms, colors, scents etc. Oddly enough, although I'm 37, I'm actually fairly new to the world of makeup BEYOND my usual simple neutral single eyeshadows, 90s grunge black eyeliner, and a sensible mauve lipstick i always wore pre-age 30 lol.... Well...since Ive entered my 30s, I've been bald from chemo, lost a breast from stage 2 breast cancer, and gone through a multitude of other health problems....so I've decided it's time to branch out and try new things!...this of course includes the wonderful world of beauty 😍💕 I started watching a lot of YouTube beauty gurus like Cassie @thriftthick, Kathleenlights, Thattaylaa, and HollieEatsLipstick ..and learned a lot from them. In fact, that is where I first heard about Influenster! I'm no beauty guru (that's for damn sure lol)...but I definitely love makeup and I love sharing my opinions/reviews of products with others! So...here i am! Nice to meet ya, Influenster 😘💋 - Chelle a.k.a. "Poenut"
Oh my gosh these take me right back to high school haha. My 90s school bus riding days in particular when I would rip open the blue bag of ranch Doritos at the end of a school day. I've always been a big Doritos fan, and Cool Ranch Doritos seems to always slightly edge out Nacho Cheese Doritos as my favorite flavor. I love their crispy, crunchy texture, their corn tortilla taste, the saltiness and of course the ranch spice on my taste buds. The only thing that always bugged me about ranch Doritos was that I felt like the seasoning was very inconsistent throughout the bag. Thus you would get one chip with lots of ranch spice and one chip with practically no spice. Then again the cheese ones can be that way too. I find that the newer, bolder flavors tend to have more seasoning. I wish more attention would be paid in terms of quality control toward the classic flavors.
I absolutely love Sun Chips cheddar flavored chips. In fact, I've yet to find a Sun Chips flavor I DON'T enjoy! I love that they are tasty yet healthy! So you can enjoy them without the guilt. They are crunchy with just the right amount of salt. A lot of "diet" brand snacks are so bland they're practically inedible. Yeah I'm watching my weight, but I don't want to eat cardboard either! This cheese flavor has the perfect amount of cheese! It isn't super fake tasting like a lot of cheese chips on the market. I love the baked taste and texture of the chips and they just leave you feeling satisfied! I'm definitely a fan of these as a healthy salty snack for those watching the scale.
I received L'Oreal's Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick in "Cowboy" along with the shade "Milk and Cookies" in my Influenster Voxbox (for FREE!!! *gasp*) in exchange for my honest review. Texture and formula-wise, the two are completely the same. Between the two shades (Photo attached to this review), however, Cowboy is definitely the warmer shade of the two....as well as my favorite 😆❤. It DOES get on my teeth, however! but its a quick fix. One dip in the tube is all you need because it is VERY opaque and it smells like brownie batter 😍 (but then they all do haha). What I think I love most about Cowboy is that it has a kind of 90s vibe, which takes me back to my teens (im 37....shut up lol). The color is gorgeous but a bit difficult to describe. It's kind of a mauvish, brickish, brown I suppose, heh...and it's VERY flattering to my Wednesday Addams pallor haha. Thus, THIS shade is one that I would DEFINITELY recommend to my fellow pale princesses 😘✌❤
I'm definitely loving these Pro Matte Liquid Lipsticks and the trendy shades offered, and I plan to pick up a couple more when I can! Thanks for the free lippies, Loreal and Influenster! ✌💄💄💄 -Poenut a.k.a. Chelle
I received L'Oreal's Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick in "Milk and Cookies" along with the shade "Cowboy" in my Influenster Voxbox. Texture and formula-wise, the two are exactly the same. Between the two shades (Photo attached to this review), Milk and Cookies is definitely the cooler shade of the two (temperature-wise 😜). To me this shade definitely fits into today's hip "greige" family--a blend of beige and grey. Where this particular lip color is unique (to my artist's eye anyway) is that it has the addition of mauve...a more lilac-y pink tone cutting through the typically deathly pallor of the grey. To me, this makes THIS greige more wearable. However, because I am ESPECIALLY fair-skinned, it STILL is not quite warm enough for me. Thus, Milk and Cookies is a good shade, but I would not necessarily recommend it to girls as pale as me--unless you LIKE that look! Haha. Hey! You do you! 😘✌
This is, hands down, THE best yogurt I've ever had. Period. I LOVE the original Yoplait and the French Vanilla flavor is definitely one of my favorites--if not my favorite. This yogurt is creamy and rich like pudding, yet it is 99% fat free. You can't believe you are eating "diet food" haha. Highly addictive. Highly recommended. 2 thumbs up. 5 if I had em.
I used Color Oops recently in a desperate last ditch effort to remove blue hair dye before going red. I knew it said on the box that it wasn't for unusual colors, but I'd seen/read where other people had tried it on blue and it worked just fine, so I thought I'd give it a go! ....yeah. No. Haha. It didn't work. It didn't do anything at ALL. It was like I hadn't put ANYTHING in my hair. I'd hoped it would at LEAST remove SOMETHING, but....nope. So if you're wanting to remove your oopsie poopsie light brown from your blonde hair...go for it, but stay away if you're any color of the rainbow lol.
I love Forever 21 for their amazing selection of trendy clothing at crazy affordable prices. I have not purchased a TON of clothing from the brand just yet, but I am fairly pleased with what I have bought thus far. I feel that where Forever 21 falls short is in quality. They seem so focused on pushing as many new fashionable clothing products onto the market as possible-without giving consideration into how well the clothing is actually MADE. I understand they are trying to keep prices low for the younger demographic in which they are targeting. However, I for one do not believe in sacrificing quality for the sake of quantity!
Bottom line: 4/5 plenty of cool fashiin-forward styles to choose from...but don't expect the fabrics to hold up for too long!
P.S. if you're over 30 like myself...STEER CLEAR OF THE LITTLE ROMPERS UNLESS YOU WANT TO SHOW YOUR "PARTS" TO THE WORLD LOL 🙊😳 TOO.....SHORT!!!!
I bought this air freshener for my tiny bathroom and absolutely LOVED it! I bought the clean linen scent (I think that's what it was called) and used it on high. It immediately filled the room AND hallway outside the bathroom (!) with a nice clean scent that wasn't your typical "bathroom airfreshener-y" smell. I'm dropping stars, however, because MAN it dissipated fast! Yes I was using it on high, but the scent seemed to only linger for a week and a half...maybe?? I dunno...IF I do repurchase, I'll probably use it on low and see how well it holds up.......thus....stay tuned for Febreze review part 2 (haha) ***(Pic shows both sides almost gone already...and I just bought these not even 2 weeks ago!)
Love. Love. Love this formula!!! ❤❤❤ It started with the purchase of just one Sephora cream lip stain, based on rave reviews by others.....and ended in a steamy love affair lol. These lip stains are SO creamy I actually hate to refer to them as "stains" because, to me, stains imply lip products that are drying...and these are anything but! The beautifully opaque color glides on easily via the doe foot applicator, sits lightly on the lips...and STAYS there until you decide to remove it! The range of colors are truly unique, including black, greens, and blues along with a gorgeous selection of mauves, berries, pinks, reds, nudes, and browns--something for everyone! Highly highly highly recommended...but don't bother buying just one...you'll just have to go back immediately haha.
