I really love Estee Lauder Double Wear line. The Double Wear Zero-Smudge Lengthening Mascara does stay on for a really long time with out running or smudging. Unfortunately My eye are sensitive and this formula after a few hours makes my eyes water.
I loved trying out the Kiss Nail Dress. They are super easy to apply, the patterns are funky and fun. Easy to create custom looks and last a long time. Nice alternative to spending excess at a salon. I would love to see more classic styles and colors.
I really enjoyed my NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine. I honestly am unsure if it will take over my lip gloss spot in my regular make up bag. I tend to be picky about my lip gloss. NYC lipshine, smells amazing and creates a long lasting shine BUT it is a little sticky. With that said. The Price can't be beat for the product. Does the job and is the right price.
I received a Goody QuickStyle paddle brush in my Influenster HolidayVoxBox. I was most excited about testing the brush. I cut 20 minutes out of my blow dry time when using the Goody Quickstyle brush. I first towel dried my hair, then brushed my hair out with the QuickStyle brush. Then blew out my hair with my hair dryer using my Goody QuickStyle Brush. My hair is shiny, not frizzy and it is very easy to clean. I loved the brush so much I bought another one and gifted my compted brush to my niece. She loves it too. The brush is very gentle on the scalp. HUGE FAN here.
I really like IKEA stores and online store. The store front themselves can be a little over whelming throughout the store. Once you make it to the Display Floor you can find yourself navigating mini rooms for inspiration. Some small items such as rugs, lamps, storage, pillow etc you can instantly shop from the rooms or display floor area. The larger pieces and units, you will need to jot down the information to pick up from the warehouse area. Any IKEA store front I have been in become a bit of a mad house. esp. one the weekends. I think that is because store fronts are few and far between. As for their website, NOT all items can be found on the website. And the site provides a less than instant inspiration for ideas and it also proves difficult to see product quality. ONCE you do decide to purchase a large unit, getting it home, the CONSTRUCTION begins. Sometimes easy enough but always no matter what I end up with an extra screw. You will almost always score a new allen wrench from your project. Alas all and all. NOT all IKEA items are amazing and sometimes returns will have to be made. I always keep my IKEA receipts, and never have had any issues with returning. Just make sure you pay attention to CURRENT return policies and SAVE that receipt. : )
Love ThinkGeek. For her, for him, for the home ... think Zelda, Bacon, Zombies, Firefly, Star Wars. I purchased a Fire Fly t-shirt for my boyfriend during holiday. My item came within a reasonable time. With a free sticker :) I signed up for their newsletter and earn points for my purchases. I would recommend anyone to check the site out if they enjoy unique gifts.
My Hair can NOT live without Aussie 3 minute miracle deeeep conditioner. I have very light bleached blond hair right now. I use this 3 minute Aussie product every other time I wash my hair. I even have add a little to a water spritz bottle to help untangle my hair. LIFESAVER!
MAC Glamour Daze Holiday 2012, Is perfectly packaged and marketed. I discovered this palette through Nordstrom and polyvore while looking to create a great holiday stocking stuffer idea blog post. MAC usually has amazing eyeshadow Pigmentation but I don't think the formula for these pallets is as strong as their original single shades. With that being said. I still love the look and colors. I think they would make any girl happy if you were to gift for holidays, birthday or for a bridesmaid goody bag.
I discovered Romwe on Polyvore. It wasn't till this past fall that I actually bought something from the site. I was graciously gifted a gift card from the site for an FNO event. The ordering process became a little confusing at times how to use my gift card because they use the term promotion code instead. I did contact Romwe and did receive a email within a day regarding my order. I could sense a bit of an issue with language barrier but It wasn't enough of an issue that would make me not want to do further business with them. I received my purchase around two weeks later. The quality was much better than I expected BUT the sizes run small. I think Romwe offers a lot of neat trendy street style that can be mixed into any wardrobe. They also run promotions,and have contests for products.
