 What is it-
A brand new baked blush from Milani featuring a shimmering marbleized design and available in nine shades! Dolce Pink, Rose D'oro, Berry Amore, Terra Sole,Luminoso, Bellissimo Bronze, Fantastico Mauve,Corallina, Red Vino. If you are looking for high-quality, finely milled, and intensely pigmented blushes at a drugstore price, then these blushes are certainly for you!
  • Those seeking a cheaper alternative to MAC Mineralize Blushes and Skinfinishes ($7.49 each make them a great budget pick).
  • Those who love pretty baked blushes (I’m super keen on anything baked be it shadow or blush so I was right on board).
  • Anyone who desires a flush of color that makes cheeks glow.
Tip-Glide brush through color and lightly tap off excess powder.  Lightly apply to cheeks, forehead, chin and/or nose and blend well for a sun- kissed look.  To use wet (only for shimmer shades), lightly put water on brush and glide brush through color, then apply to cheeks, forehead, chin and/or nose.

Approx. Price: $7.99
Where to Purchase? Mass market retailers

I recently pick up one of the new Milani baked blushes in Dolce Pink,   
This is a lovely light almost-baby pink with a heavy gold shimmer,Perfect for a summer night out <3

Dolce Pink

Sinful Polish

Pink Forever, a medium bubblegum pink creme.  
The formula was very nice - not runny or thick.

Pink Forever

 Dancing Nails,  metallic rose color with a really slight duochrome effect.
Apply 2 even thin coats for best results
Dancing Star
Pinky Glitter, clear or light pink polish with iridescent small and large glitter.
The formula is not as smooth as the other ones
Pinky Glitter

Sinful Colors is available at major drug and mass market stores nationwide for $1.99,  Toluene, formaldehyde & DBP free

Essie Turquoise & Caicos

Turquoise & Caicos
Last summer’s North Fork Collection from Essie was such a stellar sellout success that it’s no wonder she’s releasing the tropical themed Resort Collection that includes a new green and blue for us to drool over. I got Essie’s Turquoise & Caicos a tropical turquoise you could hope to find and putting it on makes me feel like Malibu Beach Barbie. However, the consistency of Turquoise & Caicos lets Essie down – the first application is thin, watery and streaky. The second application basically does what the first application should have, whilst a third application is necessary if you want a really consistent, even finish. Nevertheless, I was impressed with the creamy final finish, which was smoother and more self-levelling than OPI’s, even if it took a few more coats to get there.

Drying time: 5 mins
Coats required: 3
Chips: +7 days

Orly Nail Polish

Went to CVS today and found these super  cute mini Orly nail polishes , I got it in Last Dance and cute bright cherry red with red sparkle.

Last Dance Mani Mini Nail Polish Orly Nail Polish is used at professional nail salons all over the United States.  Orly Nail Polish is a professional quality nail polish and is very strong and durable.  Orly Nail Polish works wonders on either natural fingernails or acrylic nails.

Hard Candy Fox In A Box Blush

 These things are so darn cute, I couldnt wait to find these!! As you know Hard Candy has several new blushes for Spring 2011 entitled Fox in a Box. These are broken up into blushing quads and bronzing duos and housed in tiny boxes kinda like our  Benefit packaging but with a budget price tag. The blush quad come in 4 shade and range from $6- 8 dollar. Theses seem to be dupe/knock offs of Benefit powder blushes. The packaging is super cute and is a card board box like the Benefit but the top flips back and locks into place when down.. I pick up Spicy & sweet which is a light pink, medium pink, peachy pink and a bronze color and Smooth Talk is a very natural looking blush to give you a great no makeup look.

What is it- A box blush with 4 quads to mix and match

Smoother Talker(Dupe For Benefit Sugarbomb)
Super pigmented
Soft and blendable
Very affordable
Cute packaging
Magnetic box allows it to full close

Brush is not useful... 
Brush is scratchy 

 ~Name of all 5 Hard Candy Fox In a Box~
Spicy & Sweet
  • Truth Or Dare (duo)
  • Skinny Dipping (duo)
  • Hot Flash (quad)
  • Spicy & Sweet (quad)
  • Smooth Talker (quad)

Tap the brush against this once and sweep against your cheeks... do not swirl them together or you'll get too much product.

Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo & Conditioner

A blend of Moroccan Argan oil which instantly penetrates the shaft of your hair restoring shine and softness, while strengthening ,also protect you from styling heat( flat iron) and uv damage, love the smell no sulfates which is great and works well with the humidity and cleans my hair, it good for any hair type whether you have curly , oil, straight or dry .. it work perfect.

Sinful Professional Nail Polish

Happy Ending

  I own several different colors from the Sinful Colors Collection. They have a huge selection of colors as well as nail hardeners, base coats, and top coats. Just recently purchased the base and top coat (2 separate items) and my color has lasted longer and is even shinier! I am very pleased with this polish  the brush seemed thinner than other nail polish brushes, which allowed me to deliver precise strokes to my nails without getting the polish all over my fingers and cuticles and  the polish is Toluene, Formaldehyde, DBP and Camphor free, the color turned out so charming! . I buy them at Walgreens for $1.99

Physicians Formula Cashmere Wear Ultra Smoothing Bronzer

What is it- Ultra-luxurious bronzing powder with a classic look and feel of cashmere leaves skin feeling smooth, soft and nourished , Pearlescent bronze and gold are delicately woven together to give a rich warm glow all day.

This product feels really soft on your skin. I like the little rope of lighter, shimmery color down the middle. It makes a good cheek highlight. The rest of the bronzer isn't perfectly matte, but its probably matte enough that you could do some contouring with it, can be worn alone or over make up  this product does not apply cakey at all , look natural, and blend easy.

The brush isn't bad. I don't use it because I have a brush that's better, but if I were on the go, it would be a convenient thing to have. I would use a kabuki brush.

100% pure cashmere extract
Oil Free
Mirror and Brush Included

Physicians Formula Bambuki Brush

What is it?
A huge kabuki brush for applying loose powder or bronzer. Designed with a full head of natural hair and a naturally sustainable bamboo handle.

Big Kabuki Brush = Heavy Hand

  • Compact
  • Good Price

  • Bristles end up on face
  • Bristles fell out 1st use
  • Expensive for quality
  • Poor Quality
  • Scratchy
Bambuki Brush

Revlon Scented Polishes

Mad about mango

 The other day while shopping , I came across some new Revlon nail polish and the where scented well i decided not to  get them cause I really didnt  believe you could have a nail polish that smelled like fruity flavors, well I was wrong after I heard good review on them  I gave them a shot and Im  glad I did , I pick up Bubble gum( Pink ) Not so Blueberry(  light-medium periwinkle foil metallic.) and Mad about Mango( pale light orange) and they really do smell like the bottle states, i would not apply a top coat , I think it hid the scent of the polish and they already are very shiny. They normally range anywhere for $3.99- 5.99 depends on the store and they have 16 different scented polishes. &hearts;

How long does the scent last? Suprisingly a long time! For the first 8-12 hours the fruity scent is strong and even after a day or two, you'll notice a faint smell. 

Bubble Gum

~ Dry Fast
~ Smell Amazing
~Easy To Apply

~  Take Long To Dry

Over all Review
This nail polish does what it claims in terms of scent. It leaves a scent on your nails after it dries

Pretty In Papaya
Not so blueberry
Ocean Breeze
Gum Drop
 Grape Icy

Burts Bees LemonGrass Cuticle Cream

This stuff is my holy grail for those stubborn cuticle, i didnt think anything would work on my cuticles, they where so dry that they where so tender and painful even lotion wasnt working =[ anyways this stuff works amazing , it super affordable, I think it $5.99 , it smells great, it easy to use, gentle on the sore tender part of your fingers, long lasting,and it 100% natural, it does have vitamin E which will heal the cuticle ,sweet almond oil to moisturizes and bees wax to heal in moisturizes  the only bad thing is it can be kinda greasy if you apply to much , a little goes along way.

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil  Bronzer
The Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzing Powder is perfect for contouring because it's matte, you can apply all over the face and not look like you rolled in cheeto's . The product is sheer which is another good thing because you can build up the color.Too Faced's bronzer suits me very well because it adds the right amount of color that I need to contour my face. The product is made with real cocoa powder, it generally run about  $ 27.00 dollar, and can be found at any beauty store( Ulta Sephora and

Over all review , I think If you want super black sexy lashes for a dramatic look for a night out or for work  I would def go for the Hard Candy Lash Stain. It does have a nice brush to separate the lashes for that falsie look that fake lash would give you. The formula is thin but not wet or clumpy and dries almost instantly , it is only available in one color ( black) and only sold at Walmart or and normally run around 7.oo Dollars.
