Minx COVERGIRL blastflipstick

 Minx comes with a golden brown tone on one end and a cream brown on the other.
 
The Cream Brown only.
 
 The Golden Brown only.
 
 Cream Brown with Golden Brown in the middle.
 
 Cream Brown with Golden Brown on top.
 
 Golden Brown with Cream Brown on top.

Here you can see the color combinations better.

Out of the 3 COVERGIRL blastflipsticks that I tried Minx had to be my favorite. Both colors went on smoothly and I didn't have any problems with staining. I like how each color looks when worn by themselves and together. If I had to pick only one lipstick that I was allowed to wear this would be the one. When this COVERGIRL blastflipsticks runs out I will definitely be buying a new one.

Forever Red Exclusively at Bath & Body Works

              
Bath & Body Works' most luxurious longest lasting fragrance blends opulent notes of fiery red pomegranate and delicate peche de vigne, a rare and fleeting French peach. Soft petals of red osmanthus give way to notes of addictive velvety marshmallow and a surprising finale of rich vanilla rum that leaves an unforgettable impression.

          Forever Red is available in:
           Eau du Parfum
           Fine Fragrance Mist
           Rollerball & Lip Wand Duo
           Shower Gel
           Body Lotion
           Triple Moisture Body Cream
           Shimmer Mist
           Golden Sugar Scrub

If you have been to Bath & Body Works lately I bet you've noticed the new Forever Red Collection Exclusively at Bath & Body Works. I was given the opportunity to try Forever Red complimentary through Influenster. When I first  tried the fragrance I though it was a little strong, but after a couple of minutes the fragrance toned down and smelled amazing. I wore Forever Red and it lasted on me for a while and I was very pleased with the wear time. Bath & Body Works really did a great job with Forever Red it has a great fragrance, packaging, and price.

Gillette Venus Embrace!

 

Reveal the goddess in You.


Gillette Venus Embrace:
Venus Embrace blade refills provide an ultra-close shave with five blades that hug curves to get virtually every hair. Available in 4-count and 8-count.
 
Finding a razor that fits you and your needs is a hard thing to do but, Gillette Venus makes it a bit easier. Have you ever purchased a refillable razor to find that you didn't like the one you bought and ended up throwing it away? Well you don't have to do that with Gillette Venus because any of their handles will work with any of their refills.  Any handle with any refill is unheard of but true, that way you can find your perfect combination. The ShowerSafe® blade refills are individually sealed to stay clean and dry, even when stored in the shower. They also have a SoftGrip® handle for confident control.
 
I was sent the Venus Embrace and Venus & Olay complimentary to try from Influenster.
I love the easy to grip handle of the Venus Embrace but, I love the moisturizing bars and the close shave I get from the 5 blades of the Venus & Olay. I didn't have any problem changing the refill. While shaving I didn't have any nics. After shaving I noticed that my legs felt very moisturized and smooth. So I think these to are the perfect combination for me. 

Any Venus blade refill fits any Venus handle so you can find your perfect shaving match without having to purchase a whole new razor. Try it out!

Private Selection Review


  • The Private Selections brand is inspired by food enthusiasts and uses only the highest quality ingredients.
  • It can be found at the Kroger family of stores.
  • Rich new flavors of Private Selection coffee include Sumatra, Costa Rican, Vanllia, and Toffee Nut.
  • Private Selection cheeses are available in great tasting varieties including Garlic& Herb Monterey Jack, Blue Marbled White Cheddar, Buffalo Monterey Jack, Blue Marbled Pepper Jack and others.
  • A full range of Private Selections premium offerings can be found througout the store, including Angus meats, fresh & frozen seafood, deli meats & cheeses, ice cream, appetizers, desserts, candy, coffee, crackers, cookies, pasta and pasta sauce, and much more. 

The products that tried were
  • Marinara Sauce
  • Jalapeno Stuffed Olives
  • Classic Water Crisps
  • Costa Rican Tarrazu Coffee
  • Strawberry Greek Yogurt
Marinara Sauce
 The Marinara Sauce was delicious, it tasted like the marinara sauce that you would get at a classic Italian resturant. I used it in lasagna and it came out amazing.

Jalapeno Stuffed Olives
 The olives suprisingly had the jalapeno flavor but not the heat, and I was actually glad they didn't have the heat.

Classic Water Crisps
 These taste like saltine crackers without the salt, they are also thinner and crispier. The taste is so simple andpure that it lets the topping that you put on the crisps stand out.

Costa Rican Tarrazu Coffee
 I'm in no way a coffee snob I just like coffee. This coffee is a medium to dark roast. I must say that this is one of the better coffees that I've tasted

Strawberry Greek Yogurt
 I personally LOVE yogurt and this yogurt was no exception. The yogurt and the fruit both tasted very fresh.

 

Would I recommend  Private Selection ?

    Yes, because I was pleased with all the products that I tried.

Ferrero Rocher®

 I received a lovely 18 piece gift box of Ferrero Rocher chocolates as a complimentary gift from Influenster. I shared mine with 2 of my favorite people, my boyfriend and my niece. Neither of them had ever had Ferrero Rocher before but now they love them. So, I know what their getting for the holidays.
 
 Ferrero Rocher® is a unique and delicious chocolate experience made by Italian chocolatier Ferrero, since 1982. The chocolates are a tempting combination of smooth chocolaty cream surrounding a whole hazelnut; within a delicate, crisp wafer. . . all enveloped in milk chocolate and finely chopped hazelnuts. The chocolates are individually wrapped in gold foil. 
  
The gift box is a beautiful golden box with a big golden bow on top.
 
Upon opening the box I found inside 3 trays,
each containing 6 Ferrero Rocher chocolates.
 
   Here you can see the different layers of the Ferrero Rocher chocolates.
1.The beautiful golden wrapper  
2.Chocolate and Hazelnut shell  
3.Layer of wafer                        
4. Chocolate Cream                    
5.A whole Hazelnut                   
Ferrero Rocher chocolates are not like any other chocolates out there. The filling is a cream made from unique ingredients including hazelnuts and cocoa. Even though there are hazelnuts in the chocolate shell, filling and a whole hazelnut inside its not at all over powering. If your not sure of what to get someone as a gift this Ferrero Rocher gift box would be perfect. Ferrero Rocher chocolates can be paired with Pinot Noir, Merlot, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc wines. Ferrero Rocher® are certified Kosher (OU-Dairy). They are not Kosher for Passover. Ferrero Rocher can be found at Walgreens.

NYC New York Color Individual Eyes Custom Compact

NYC New York Color's all-in-one compact gives you everything you need for a complete eye look: primer, illuminator, applicator and complementing shadows. With four vibrant colors designed for your eye color, you can create a look as individual as you are!  
 
The retail price for this compact is $4.99
at drug store chains nationwide.  
 
 
I applied the base and eye shadow as I normally would. The base went on smoothly. The eye shadow also went on nicely, and the colors showed up very well. The base is suppose to prolong the life of the eye shadow and prevent creasing. Unfortunately it didn't, after about 3 hours I had all kinds of creasing in the shadow. At the end of the day I wiped most of the shadow away with just tissue. 90% of it came off  and the other 10 %  I removed with soap and water.
 
Overall I would purchase this compact again because the colors showed up really well,
 even though the shadow base didn't work.

Goody Spin Pins Review

I recieved the Goody Spin Pins in my Influenster VoxBox totry out for free. I was excited to try them because I my gotto hairstyle is a bun.  
 
Goody Spin Pins retail for $7.29 for 2 Spin pins.
Upon opening the box I noticed that the card stock that the spin pins were attached to showed how to achieve 3 different styles.


Usually if I decide that I want to wear a bun I would need a whole list of supplies.
Ponytail holder
A couple rubber bands
A lot of bobbie pins
This product claims that you can achieve a perfect bun with nothing more than the 2 spin pins. I was totally excited to try them out. The directions were very simple.
  1. Gather your hair at the nape of your neck (no ponytail holder).
  2. Twist your hair into a tight bun and tuck the ends.
  3. Spin one pin in from the top and the other up from the base, making sure not to interlock pins. 
Pretty simple instructions so I did as it said. I must say I am loving this product. It worked exactly as it said. I even tried using just 1 spin pin and the bun still held all day. If you like to wear buns Spin Pins are a must have.

Kiss Ever Pro Lash Starter Kit Review

I am a false eyelash lover. I was excited to try out the Kiss Ever Pro Lash Starter Kit That I received in my Influenster Beauty Blogger VoxBox. This kit retails @ $5.99 it contains:
*A set of lashes
*A tube of glue
*Lash applicator
The lashes are Premium Quality 100% Human Hair.
The glue is Pro 24 hour hold.
 
The Plastic the the lashes are secured to has a slit, So that when you gently bend it the lashes lift so that you can easily remove the lashes.
 
 I know how to apply false lashes because I wear them alot,
but I wanted to try and use the lash applicator.
 
 (Me without the lashes)
 
(Me with the lashes on)

My Opinion
 
I love the fullness of the lashes. The applicator was hard for me to use so I just used my hands. The glue itself  I really liked, it held for the entire day without the corner of the lashes lifting(which is common). Overall I would give this kit a A- because the lashes and glue are great but the applicator was hard to use.

Not Your Mother's Smooth Moves Frizz Control Hair Cream

SMOOTH MOVES™ is your call to fighting out of control hair and will help reduce your styling time. Infused with natural coconut & silk extracts this salon formula will keep you thinking straight all day.

 $6.00 at CVS, Walmart, and ULTA
 


PRODUCT FACTS
- De-frizzes and straightens hair
- All day performance
- Adds shine
- Coconut & silk extracts add shine and strength to hair

STYLING TIPS & EFFECTS
Apply Smooth Moves™ to damp hair, distribute evenly with a comb and then blow-dry to reveal straight, frizz-free hair.   

I needed to wash my hair and thought it would be a good idea to try out Smooth Moves. I washed and conditioned my hair like I usually do. I towel dried it and applied the Smooth Moves. The product smelled delicious like fresh coconut. After working the product into my hair I then blow dried it.

The test came when I had to leave the house. It was raining when I left home usually that's bad news for me and my hair, because my hair is naturally thick and has very tight curls. Surprisingly my hair did not frizz at all.

I am definitely going to be purchasing more of this product and trying their other products.

Bath & Body Works Fall Mini Candle Review

 
 
I received a Bath & Body Works mini candle in my Beauty Blogger VoxBox from Influenster. The scent that I received is called Cider Lane. This scent is available in 3 sizes:
Mini $3.50
Small $9.50
3 Wick $19.50
The scent is also available as a Wallflower Fragrance Bulb and Home Fragrance Oil.
 
The Scent is described as:
As heartwarming as our annual trip to the local apple orchard each year, our delicious fall blend fuses mulled cider and warm caramel with a hint of sweet cinnamon.



Candle Info:
  • Highly fragranced candle exclusively developed and tested by our team of Home Fragrance experts, including the world's best master perfumers
  • Made using the highest concentration of fragrance oils, an exclusive blend of vegetable wax and lead-free wicks for optimal performance
  • 1.3 oz candle burns 15 to 20 hours
  • 1" wide x 1 1/2" tall
  • 1" wide x 2 " tall
In my opinion:
This candle has a delicious caramel smell. It reminds me of the smell you get when you make homemade  caramel apples. I love the smell of the candle. I will definitely be buying some of these candles. Unfortunately the Cider Lane scent has been phases out, but there are several other scents available. Most of the time you can find them on sale so, I think I'm going to try the Frosted Cupcake Scent.

Give these candles a try ad remember Bath & Body Works has a 100% Guarantee!

D.Y.I. Chain Headband

What you need:
Chain, Elastic, Needle, Thread, Pliers
Rings(optional)

Step 1:
Measure your chain from ear to ear if your making a double chain headband you would double the length.
 
Step 2:
Attach rings at both ends.
If you don't have rings attach the ends of your chain to make a continuous chain.
 
Step 3:
 Measure your elastic from ear to ear across the back of your head.
 
Step 4:
If you have rings loop the end of your elastic around your ring and sew it together.
If you  don't have rings simply loop the end of your elastic around your ring and sew it together.
 

This is how it should look when its done.
