I'm typically not a fan of glittery nail polish but I did find a fun way to incorporate it into my polish style. It layers well, so I layered all over the nail for layer 1, then layers 2-4 I only went half way to 1/4 way from my cuticle and it looks like it fades. The colors are really fun!
I just started using this and I really like it so far. It seems to be working but mostly I love the feeling the creaminess it leaves around my eyes.
Update 9/2017: I still really like this product. Use it most mornings, although starting to run out so I'll likely buy. I feel like my undereyes look a little fresher, maybe not as puffy, but I look awake several minutes after applying.
Wow! This lipstick lasts. I was really surprised how long this lasted because so many of the "long lasting" lipsticks I've tried begin to come off within a few hours and typically don't even last until lunch. I'm one who does not like to reapply because I'm typically running from meeting to meeting. I applied this lipstick at 9 a.m. and it didn't come off until i removed it at 5:30 p.m. so I approve! For long wear lip color, I usually stick with Senegence Lipsense, but this is a close comparison, or cheaper option. It does seem a little sticky the first hour or so and I don't recommend rubbing lips together. It tends to stay moisturizing for most of the day, which I appreciated. I would recommend and will likely buy in a few more colors.
I typically find charcoal products work well, and the Tree Hut mask definitely cleaned out my pores. I could tell especially having not done a mask or exfoliator recently. My only complaint is that it's not as friendly for sensitive skin. My skin is sensitive and I could see the redness after using. That being said, with sensitive skin, this is likely to happen with most products. I'll continue to use, but probably not weekly, more like every two weeks.
I really enjoy sour candies, so of course I liked Mike and Ike's new zours. The actual candy itself is the sour part. Typically, sour candies have an outer sugary coating as the sour part, and their regular candy under the coating. That's not the case here with these Mike and Ike's. In my opinion, they aren't cheating like the other candies (and less sugary mess on your fingers!).
One of my favorite places to visit and shop! Ikea has really great prices and really trendy items. You could build, furnish, and decorate your entire house at this store, which is great. Love all of their colors and clean designs. The only con to Ikea is that you have to assemble most of the furniture; however, I've assembled quite a few products, and I've never found it hard or frustrating. The instructions are straightforward.
There isn't one near me, so everytime I'm out of town, my husband and I try to go here. Their chicken is thick cut, juicy, and always delicious. I usually get a sandwich or fingers. I just love it because the chicken tastes real and good!
I finally was convinced to try Lipsense and now I don't know why I didn't try it sooner. This is one product that I will push and push for people to try. If you love wearing lip color, this is what you need. None of this is over-exaggerated: does not come off (currently wearing it at 5:05 p.m. and put it on at 7:40 this morning), does not transfer to mugs (had coffee twice today), food, teeth, etc.! Colors are $25 (it lasts, no reapplying). Glosses are $15-20. Affordable for what it produces!
Now, other reviewers and users have mentioned patchiness of color coming off here or there, and similar complaints. You have to make sure you take care of your lips - when you are wearing the color, make sure you are continually glossing to keep your lips moisturized. When not wearing color, exfoliate lips at night, wear balm throughout day and at night. Take care of your puckers, people!
Personal color faves - Blu-Red, Bella, Dawn Rising, Party Pink, Purple Reign.
One of my absolute favorite products. IT SMELLS AMAZING. I use this almost everyday - smooths hair (espcially my course, thick hair), tames, conditions, and makes it smell great. Can be used on dry and damp hair.
This is particularly great for when I get out of the shower and have tangly hair - it's a great detangler. It's a spray - I typically don't go for sprays, but this one works. Not my favorite smell - like many of their products, a little more fruity than I like.
