Just a mom that wants the best for my family!:) I love all things FREE, and enjoy testing/reviewing products and providing honest feedback to companies/brands and sharing across my social media! I am obsessed with any and all things beauty, cosmetics, or skin care related and keep as up to date as possible on the latest products, trends, and discoveries!☺💄💋💅🏻💇🏼
I recently received the ✏️NEW Bic MPMX9P21 Velocity MAX Mechanical Pencil✏️ complimentary from MySmiley360 for review purposes. Let me begin with complete honesty: I personally despise mechanical pencils! It's always been a terrible experience using them for me; the lead would break repeatedly, writing would smear easily, and the squeaking! OMG, I swear it was as nerve racking as someone dragging their nails across chalkboard!😖Needless to say, my expectations were low for this Smiley Mission. Upon receiving the package, I was immediately impressed with the design and appearance of the pencils. At first glance, I was wondering if I had accidentally received the Bic Gel-ocity Gel Pens Mission instead! The pencils are much larger than I expected, and I could feel they were great quality when using. They are easy to grip, the extra large eraser removes any and all mistakes effortlessly, and most importantly to me: smooth, non-smear, and ZERO SQUEAK writing!! The 2pk I received comes with 5 extra large replaceable erasers and 2 tubes filled with extra lead that make refills foolproof. The arrival of this package was perfect timing for back to school, as I'll be using the enclosed coupons to purchase more! I'm not sure exactly how Bic did it, but they managed to convert this girl with their AMAZING product! Take my word for it and try them for yourself!
I've been using McCormick taco seasoning for years, but just recently tried the new organic variety I received free for review purposes. I use the seasoning in a variety of ways, but my favorite is seasoning for the beef in my homemade enchiladas! It was easy, quick, and delicious as always, but to be honest, I didn't notice a taste or difference between the original and this one. I'm not sure if I'll be switching from the original at this point, but I'm happy to know there is now a healthier option if I so choose.
I've really enjoyed using my Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayons I received complimentary for review these past few weeks! I was unsure about how well they would stay put after applying, but they didn't budge or smear once after several hours of wear! The shades I received •Pink of Me & (Earth)Quake• were both very flattering on my fair skin tone. I was able to achieve both natural and dramatic looks with ease, since they blend extraordinarily well! I've been using my Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayons in several different ways to achieve a wide variety of looks! From the daily natural look I prefer for daytime wear, to the more dramatic, smoky eye for evening or special occasions. I love that it gives me the ability to easily transition from subtle, enhancing colors, to deep, intense shading with just a little blending or further application. I feel beautiful and confident when my makeup is crisp and cleanly applied, and the Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon makes that very easy to do. I cannot wait to try the other cosmetics from the Marc Jacobs Beauty Collection!
When visiting @sephora recently for my @KateSomervilleSkincare #VirtualVox from @influenster the beauty consultant provided me with a deluxe sample of #ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliator as a replacement for the NEW #GlowMoisturizer💧🌿🛁🛍I wish I would have known at the time how much I was going to enjoy using it so I could have asked for a bag full of these!! The product itself is a dark green shade in appearance with tiny granules, has the texture and consistency of a microdermabrasion scrub, and a very pleasant, almost gourmand, cinnamon scent. The exfoliation level and tingling sensation may be a little overpowering for those that are sensitive, but I found it worked well for my combination skin type with no post-application irritation. My skin was more radiant, pores were less visible, and had added softness with an overall smoother texture after just the first use! I highly recommend and give this one ⭐️⭐️⭐⭐⭐!!️️️
This is an excellent toner that works great for my sometimes sensitive, combination skin type! It works effectively at controlling oil and helping manage breakouts without being over drying and stripping skin of moisture. I use once daily and it doesn't cause skin peeling like some other toners have. Another plus is you can find easily at most stores!
Absolutely OBSESSED with their beauty department!!! It amazes me when people are surprised and have never been before! They truly match or surpass the competition of other high end luxury stores, with both providing vast product selections, limited edition brand/product offerings, special store events/gwps, and overall customer service experience! Around holidays especially, are my favorite times to browse, because the gift sets they have are unlike others I've been able to find anywhere else. I would DEFINITELY keep an eye out if you are a huge fan of TATCHA skincare like myself! The Christmas gift sets last year?! OMG lol
These by far are my favorite of the Clarisonic brush head collection! The exfoliation level is just the right amount for my combination skin type, with effective, noticeable results without being overly harsh, irritating to sensitive facial areas, or stripping the skin of moisture. Shopping for replacements is made super convenient as well, with offerings of single packaging, duos, and even value packs with 3+ brush heads!
I tested @hourglasscosmetics' NEW #ConfessionUltraSlim High Intensity Refillable Lipstick in store at @sephora recently for my #HourglassVirtualVox from @Hourglasscosmetics and @Influenster💄💋I chose #MyFirstTime, a gorgeous pinky beige shade that I absolutely fell in love with! This has become #MySecretWeapon for long lasting, matte lips with to die for refillable packaging!!😍🖤💄❤️💋I'm so happy I was selected as part of this #Contest because honestly, I usually shy away from matte lipsticks because they leave my lips dry and the color would fade and flake as it did. NOT SO with this amazing product that I highly recommend for those that like matte or those newbies like myself just searching for the right one!! Definitely ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I received this product complimentary to test and review through Revlon Sampling Club and absolutely love it!! I've been using Revlon ColorStay Crème Eyeshadowin the Creme Brûlée shade, and it is a gorgeous champagne color that is very flattering with my fair skin tone. This product works excellent as a base shadow that extends the wear of any additional shadows I layer on top, without any resulting creasing over time. My liner also easily glides over and remains put throughout the length of wear. I will definitely be purchasing this shadow both when this one is out, plus to try additional shades available!
The absolute best and safest vehicles on the market without a doubt! Over the last 15-20 years of either driving my own or a family member's car, I've unfortunately been involved in several accidents but never seriously injured as a result. When my 11yr old daughter begins driving not too far in the future, I pray I'm able to afford one for her. One can never take too many precautions when it comes to your children!
