Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Sleep Lavender Vanilla BodyLotion($13.00) 
Definitely one of my favorite bedtime scents. Smells so good. Its a decent price for the amount of loition you get , and sometimes your get a really good price if you catch a sale or have bbw coupons.  Lavender Essential Oil and Vanilla Absolute help calm feelings of stress so you can sleep better.

Bath And Body Works Twilight Wood Fine Fragrance Mist ($14.00)Smells woodsy, musky, and sugary! I love this for the fall and winter!Lavishly spray on a mesmerizing blend of berry, soft mimosa, apricot nectar and warm woods. Our sophisticated new pump delivers great coverage and delicate mist for the lightest, most refreshing way to fragrance!


St Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Facial Moisturizer ($4.67) 
 It is a great moisturizer for the amount that you receive and the price. I use this in the morning right before I apply the rest of my makeup, and also at night before bed, and wake up with soft and smooth skin Enrich your skin tone and make it softer with the St. Ives Timeless Skin Facial Moisturizer. By restoring the moisture content of your face, it keeps your face fresh and glowing throughout the day. With main ingredients such as apricots, minerals and olives, the St. Ives facial moisturizer will give you a glowing skin. This collagen elastin facial moisturizer can be applied all around your face and neck, preferably twice a day regularly for better results.

ENJOY Hair & Skin Treatment Oil($32.00)

This is like a miracle in a bottle, seriously! My hair was instantly shiny, soft, and full of body after one application. It's very light weight and I love the smell, it incredible non-greasy, dry lightweight formula instantly penetrates and absorbs into hair and skin reducing drying time dramatically without buildup.

Excellent for use on dry skin areas, cuticles, nails, feet, hands and elbows. Great after shower.

Urban Decay Naked Basic Palette($27.00) 
I've been a fan of Urban Decay's eye shadows for quite some time. The texture, pigmentation, and overall quality are always so perfect. The only problem is I'm very rarely in the mood to wear bright and/or glittery shadows. So as soon as I could, I picked up this palette. It's everything I wanted it to be. The colors are subtle and gorgeous, gorgeously Naked neutrals to build on or wear alone—including four never-before-seen shades.


Loreal Colour Riche Caresse Lip Stick In Blushing Sequin($9.99) 
Great product. It smells nice and goes on smoothly. It is a bit sheer so you can build it up or apply it over a matte lipstick. I will be purchasing more, these are so moisturizing , and give a great glossy finish for that extra pop of color !!

EOS Lip Sphere In Lemon Drop ($3.99)
his is the best lip balm ever. I say this because lemon is on of my favorite scent of a chapstick and the packaging of these is so adorable! This lipbalm is smooth, moisturizing, non-greasy /heavy or waxy at all , glides right one my lips and last for a long time , sadly to say I think i own ever flavor of EOS lip spheres.


SLICE Slanted Soft-Touch Tweezer($19.99)
These are the best tweezers I have every had , they give me the best shaped brow and get rid of all them sneaky hair you cant get with normal tweezers. Perfectly aligned, hand-filed slanted tips and a wide, comfortable rubberized red soft-touch grip for expert precision, every time. 

Wet N Wild Fergie Nail Polish In Ferguson Crest Syrah($3.29)
is a beautiful wine colored polish with a ton of shimmer to it. I definitely like this kind of color and think all polish lovers should have something like it in their collection , I also love the brushes on the Wet n Wild polishes .

ENJOY Hydrating System Review

 Hey Glam's I was quite excited to receive a set of Enjoy Hair Care to review because this is the brand that many salon carries. Trying new products to fix my damaged, color treated hair is a godsend. My hair can use all the love it can get. First let me tell you about my lovely hair , my hair is long,  very curly/frizzy and  has some damage from dye, styling & heat tools such as my straightener.

What Is It
 Enjoy - Amazing new technology to create a highly versatile hair care system for all hair types, textures, styles and chemical care needs. Simple as 1-2-3 to cleanse, repair, moisturize and equalize your hair for that every day salon look. Enjoy Haircare is a unique line of hair products that was developed for your simple everyday needs. Containing no sulfate in the shampoos, Enjoy products give your hair strength without harming or stripping your color treated hair. Enjoy uses their Cleanse Sensor Technology to ensure proper treatment of your hair type. 

ENJOY was the first on the market to opt out of using sulfates, which is the informal name for a group of cleansing ingredients called alkyl sulfates. They are typically used as an inexpensive detergent or degreaser in other personal care products and have been found to dry out the skin and hair and even cause irritation.



In addition to being sulfate-free, ENJOY knows that pH balanced and stable products are key for optimum hair color retention. Human hair resides in the pH 4.5-5.5 range, but most products on the market are pH 7 or greater. Besides leaving the hair feeling dry and brittle, the higher pH in these other products raises the cuticle and causes hair color to fade shampoo after shampoo.



To provide long-lasting color and complement hair’s natural pH balance, ENJOY works hard to make certain that their products stay within the pH 4.5-6.0 range. Extensive bake tests are also conducted on the line to guarantee pH stability, which ensure consistency in quality and product performance.



Available only in salons, and with a full color line and rapidly expanding hair care system, ENJOY is sure to have something for everyone.




Indulge dry, thirsty hair with the moisture it craves with the ENJOY
Professional Hair Care Hydrating System. Start with ENJOY Sulfate-Free
Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner – A color safe, pH balanced and stable
formula to eliminate frizz, detangle and create unbelievably smooth, shiny,
silky hair. Reactivate styles, eliminate frizz and lock in color with
weightless, leave-in ENJOY Conditioning Spray. ENJOY Hair & Skin Treatment Oil will instantly penetrate and absorb into hair to smooth, condition andseal hair with amazing shine!

 

What I Receive & About The Products

 ENJOY Hydrating System :
  • ENJOY Sulfate-Free Hydrating Shampoo-it lathers just enough but not so much that you feel like you have to rinse forever. It glided across my scalp and felt really good when I massaged it in. I really love that this shampoo and conditioner are both Sulfate Free too! Create unbelievable smooth and silky hair. Eliminate frizz, moisturize and detangle without build-up. Gentle cleansers combined with a ph of 4.5-5.5 guarantees long-lasting hair color.
  • ENJOY Hydrating Conditioner is super rich and creamy! I absolutely loved it. It feels so nourishing on my hair and really seemed to help detangle my hair while I applied it from the top part of my neck down to the very tips. This conditioner is one of the thickest and creamiest conditioners I have ever used! I found that it was incredibly moisturizing and my hair seemed to drink it all in, creates smoothness, softness and shine while eliminating frizz and de-tangling your hair. Color Safe for all hair types.
  • ENJOY Conditioning Spray- used as a de-tangler, and to give that extra little bit of added moisture to the hair! It was absolutely my favorite of all the Enjoy products! Its added to the hair while its wet before blow drying but I used it both on wet and dry hair for extra conditioning and de-tangling power and absolutely loved it! This is hands down the best de-tangler I have ever used!Recommended for all hair types. Detangles the hair, adds moisture and protection without weighing it down. Leave it in or rinse it out. Excellent for frizz control. Low pH of 3.5 – 4.5 closes cuticle and locks in hair color.
  • ENJOY Hair & Skin Treatment Oil-I think this product needs the word "Miracle" somewhere in the title. I don't know exactly how this stuff works, but it is AMAZING. I put some of this in my hair to help it dry faster and de-frizz my dry hair. The results: super straight, smooth hair that doesn't feel greasy or have any sign of build up so far. A little of this goes a long way, so I imagine it will last  a long time. On top of that, it turns out that this product is fantastic for your skin, too! This incredible non-greasy, dry lightweight formula instantly penetrates and absorbs into hair and skin reducing drying time dramatically without buildup. Smooth, condition, and seal with amazing shine. Eliminates frizz. Locks in moisture, blocks out humidity. Alcohol-Free. For All Hair Types. Excellent for use on dry skin areas, cuticles, nails, feet, hands and elbows. Great after shower.
 
Packaging
All the enjoy bottles are cute white cylinders adorned by stars (each product has a different color star, so that you may tell which product to grab in the shower, faster).The shampoo and conditioner have super wide holes so you can get the perfect amount of product in a snap! This was especially helpful for the conditioner, as it is super thick, rich and creamy!
If you would like to know more about the other wonderful Enjoy products, go visit their website or check them out on twitter! Their products are incredibly affordable and there’s something for all hair types!
My Thoughts- I really enjoyed using these products and will certainly continue to use them in the future! If you have dry, frizzy, tangled hair, then this is the Hair Care Line for you! I loved using all of these products.If you try anything from this line, you absolutely must try the conditioning spray . I’m always struggling with the balance between adding hydration without weighing my hair down. ENJOY’s Conditioning Spray totally fits the bill! And it makes my hair so silky too.! It is also safe for color treated hair! If you don't have dry hair, Enjoy Hair Care has other lines formulated to treat every

Rogue Republic Cosmetics Review

 Rogue Republic is a movement that creates mineral-based cosmetics formulated with skin's sensitivity in mind*. We formulate without parabens, sulfates, harsh chemicals and preservatives, or animal by-products. Our ingredients are not tested on animals, nor are our finished products. Our goal is to provide saturated pigments that are vegan and cruelty free and work with demanding lifestyles, following you from the office to the gig to the club, and back home again.

What Is It 
Providing mineral cosmetics with skin's sensitivity in mind. We do not test on animals and our products are vegan-friendly! They currently carry loose pigments that are the perfect eye shadows, but will be adding shades and formulas for lip gloss, lipstick, blush, foundation, setting powder, bronzer, eyeliner, mascara, nail polish, and more in the near future!Our line of pigments can be used wet or dry, and most are even safe for use on the lips. This means one jar of pigment can be your go-to for eyeliner, eye shadow, lip gloss, highlighter, and blush if the shade strikes your fancy.





 Colors I Received 
*Sample Sizes*
Saber-pewter grey-silver, perfect for a smokey look with high sheen
Caladan- Teal with green-gold reflect. Applying wet brings out the duotone effect,
Giedi Prime-black-based forest green that has great green reflect
Face Dancer- bright pink with blue duochrome sparkle and sheen
Carnage- pink-based copper pigment that has a shifting reflect depending how the light hits it



pop


Pigment and Texture
  This are very great quality pigments , the texture is very smooth ,  each one I tried they were all smooth , not grainy just guilds on when applying them to the eye even if some one them have glitter/ shimmer in them . The pigmentation is beyond great , everyone I swatch was so pigmented , they are all true to color and pack a mega punch of color to a look !

Staying Power
The staying power too these are great, I have tried all these for more then 12 hours and they each stay on so well , no fallout or creasing but I do suggest to tap your brush off before applying , but I also do recommend a primer since they are pigments , If your dont wear a primer , your might have fall out/creasing  and not as bright of a pigment if you dont use a primer , but that also depending on what type of skin type your have if you have oil or dry eyelids , but most of all these have mega good staying power.



Packaging and Price 
This company is super affordable for what you get and the quality of the products for a standard jar size ( $7.00) & for a deluxe size jar ($12.00) trust me it worth it ! The packaging is basic , it is a normal clear twist jar with the labels on the bottom stating( product name, how much product you get & what product it is )I do like that packaging since it is clear it is easy to find what product your looking for , I like that is basic and not so over the time , sometime less it more ...

 What I Received 
Makeup Box
2 Color Club Nail Polishes( Hot Like Lava,Personal Stylist)
Beauty For Real Cool Plumpling Lip Gloss (Just Lust)
Mia Bellezza Blush(Safari)
My Face  Blingtone Eyeshadow( Pink Champagne)
Kai Fragrance Sample


 Pigment and Texture
Color Club Nail Polishes( Hot Like Lava,Personal Stylist)-It’s opaque in two coats, and the formula wasn’t too thick or too thin, so I didn’t have any trouble applying it.  The polish flowed evenly across the nail without streaking or bubbling.  It dried down in about the average time, but it’s forgiving if you start applying the second coat while the first is still drying down. 

008-5

Beauty For Real Cool Plumpling Lip Gloss (Just Lust)This gloss has the perfect consistency (no sticky-icky-ness). They’re long-wearing and contain lip plumper ingredients that leave your lips feeling full and luscious, also the color is fabulous , so pigmented and pack a great punch of color to the lips.
Mia Bellezza Blush(Safari)-It's a mineral blush that is extremely pigmented! It is a peachy color. It is quite possibly the most pigmented blush I've ever used, and the matte finish is lovely. It's soft and very blendable.
My Face  Blingtone Eyeshadow( Pink Champagne)-The texture of the My Face Cosmetics Blingtone Eyeshadow are soft yet firm enough that they don't have any glitter fall out which can often be a problem with glitter based powder products apply and blend out well, if you want better colour pay off you can also apply the shades wet. Although they are glitter based the formula of the eyeshadows is soft and I can happily report that the glitter present is not gritty nor does it irritate the delicate eye area.

 Staying Power

Color Club Nail Polishes( Hot Like Lava,Personal Stylist)-  Lasted a full seven days without chipping and only had minor tip wear. 
Beauty For Real Cool Plumpling Lip Gloss (Just Lust)-Lasted 3-4 , does wear when you eat or great but the plumping of the lip is still there even after the lip gloss had worn away .

Mia Bellezza Blush(Safari)- Lasted a full 8 hours, there was no wearing or patchy areas .

 My Face  Blingtone Eyeshadow( Pink Champagne)-Lasted a about 3-4 without primer , did have some creasing and fading , but does lasted 8 hour plus when you apply a good primer/since this is a glitter finish product.

Kai Fragrance Sample- Unfortunately is product and my skin didnt mix while , as I have a reaction to,although it didnt have a great scent and the staying power is lovely , the scent never faded away ... it lasted all day plus some .
My Thoughts- I would recommend this for anyone who's been disappointed with other subscriptions after makeup items in colors that don't look good on them, or who haven't been getting makeup items at all and are sick of wrinkle cream and hair products.
There are no obligations and if you want to try a beauty box sampler that you do not have to get every single month, I HIGHLY recommend
this box.

LA BELLA DONNA Duo-Lip Crayon Review

 About LA BELLA DONNA
La Bella Donna is a revolutionary, pioneering concept in cosmetics: Minerals that behave like makeup. It is a complete collection of mineral-based formulas that are actually healthy for the skin. Not all minerals are created equal. La Bella Donna's minerals contain only pure minerals from rock that give benefits to the skin that you cannot get from any other products.

Co-founders Kathy and Nicole Tracy (mother-daughter) had two completely different skin types and skin challenges. Kathy had a dry melasma skin challenge and Nicole had an overactive, oily, acne-prone skin. La Bella Donna's Loose Mineral Foundation contains only precious minerals from rock which are in an inorganic state and are not absorbed into the skin. If we were to add any other ingredient to our Loose Minerals (even if you think it is good for your skin), we would dilute the rock and would negate the properties of the minerals that are so beneficial for the skin and you cannot get from any other product. In addition, La Bella Donna provides a full spectrum natural sun block (UVA-UVB) that lasts all day, does not clog the pores and has an incredible staying power. You can even workout or go swimming with it on and unless you wash off or wipe vigorously, La Bella Donna's minerals will stay on all day without re-application. Yet, because they are pure minerals from rock, they wash off with the most gentle cleanser and go back into the earth (environmentally friendly).

La Bella Donna's minerals have a light refractive quality (because they are just minerals from rock) which immediately reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the skin.



What Is It

La Bella Donna Duo-Lip Crayons for that subtly stained new lip colour.  The natural antioxidants duo-ended crayons are richly pigmented and designed to line, define and enhance your pout.  Each crayon features a chunky tip that distributes an even, sheer layer of mineral pigment that may be built to your personalized intensity.  Use your favorite shade alone or blend shades to create your own personalized colour

What It Does
.The Lip liner Pencil provides a high level of precision, as well as smooth coverage.  The soft, rich colour pay-off makes this formulation a favorite used among makeup artists. Natural Coverage:   Contains no petrolatum, free of preservatives, lake dyes or lanolin derivatives.  Dermatologically  approved.

Color I Received
Devotion( creamy mauve shade and a shiny berry shade.)



Pigment and Texture
These Duo-Lip Crayons are easy to apply and feel wonderful and creamy, just like lipstick! The natural antioxidants duo-ended crayons are richly pigmented and designed to line, define and enhance your lips. Each crayon features a chunky tip that distributes an even, sheer layer of mineral pigment that may be built to your personalized intensity. Use your favorite shade alone or blend shades to create your own personalized colour.  This lip duo didnt feather or bleed at all .



Staying Power
 It stays put for about 3-4 hours if you don’t eat nor drink, and then it fades evenly .

What I didn’t like:
- not moisturizing
- if lips aren’t well prepped and moisturized, it will enhance flaws

Packaging and Price
In terms of packaging, I wish that this would "twirl up", but instead you have to sharpen them, which means that you inevitable lose product in the process. This product retail for $28.50 USD (Includes sharpener).

My Thoughts-Overall really satisfied with this lip liner and I would try additional shades in the future.These are very creamy and glide on effortlessly. Great pigmentation make it easy to line or fill in the lip fast and with no bleeding. Natural is a great color for most skin tones but with other assortment of colors they have anything to tickle your fancy.

Benecos Product Review

Hi Glam's I'm back to talk about organic beauty  with y'all. I was recently introduced to Benecos , a natural cosmetic company made in Germany . Wanna find out more , then keep reading !

What Is It 
Benecos is a young label with a mission to bring a breath of fresh air to natural beauty.
Benecos was founded in Germany at the end of 2008 with the goal of making high quality natural cosmetics available to ALL. The name Benecos stands for good cosmetics (Lat.bene=good).

Now, affordable prices and high quality natural cosmetics no longer need to be a contradiction. A thoughtful approach makes it possible: focusing on the essentials, while minimizing packaging. Omitted are unnecessary cartons, custom containers, jars, bottles and outer decorations. Instead of big, expensive advertising campaigns Benecos uses communication at the point sale, and word of mouth marketing.

Benecos surprises with quality products, fashionable styles, current trends, modern design and certification to the BDIH standard, the pioneer Natural Cosmetics certification body in Germany.
Because Benecos charges a reasonable consumer price, it is a real alternative to cosmetic brands from the drugstore.


022-1

 What I  Recieved-
The perfect gift or a little treat for yourself — the Benecos Glamour Set is a great introductory kit into the world of natural cosmetics. BDIH certified natural, affordable and provides a natural beauty introduction! Set includes:
  • Benecos Natural Duo Eyeshadow - Melange
  • Benecos Natural Eye Liner - Bright Blue
  • Natural Multi Effect Mascara
 Pigment and Texture
Benecos Natural Duo Eyeshadow - Melange-(Sliver Purple Shade)-This product is a natural backed shadows , the texture is hard but not gritty or chalky at all it rather smooth . The pigmentation is very well , the color pay off is spot on , what you get in the package is what it will look like on your eye , there was some fall out with this shadow, but nothing major  , but since it is all natural the formulas are difference , which make a difference consistence then your typical shadows .
Benecos Natural Eye Liner - Bright Blue-Intense pigment, creamy texture that doesn’t drag or pull. Great for creating smokey eyes.
Benescos Natural Multi Effect Mascara-This is a very wet formula mascara, with a normal mascara wands , this mascara does give get volume and extends the lashes give alot of length , but since the formula is a wet consistence your lashes can stick together
( Apply one coat & let dry before apply another)
Staying Power 
Benecos Natural Duo Eyeshadow - Melange- I wore this eyeshadow with and without primer, let start with  primer , I applied a primer all over the lid , since I have oily eye lids a primer is key for me , I wore this shadow for 10 hours with a primer , and it has great staying power, I didnt have any creasing , fading or anything , the color looked the same as when I applied it in the early A.M,  next on to how the eyeshadow worked without a primer, well it was a 50/50 throw down for me, I did see creasing to the shade and minimum fading but nothing serious that would ruin your eye look , but i think you can get away with the product not using a primer , it just a matter if your skin is oily/combo or dry.
 Benecos Natural Eye Liner - Bright Blue- All. Day. Long.  This eyeliner will last you all day and night. As far as I can tell, they are completely unaffected by tears and sweat. They can be a bit annoying to take off at the end of a long day, make sure to use makeup remover or Vaseline so you don’t pull at your eye too much.
 
 Benescos Natural Multi Effect Mascara-Mascara is an indispensable item for me especially when I want to look more polished.  Actually, it was the first make-up item  I experimented with the most when I was still a youngster This mascara has long wearing with 15-hour staying power. No smudging & causes no irritation to your eyes.
Leaves your eyes big, wide, sharp & gorgeous.

Benecos Natural Duo Eyeshadow - Melange- I really enjoy the packaging for this product , it is a clear flip top container , what I love is that you can see the product so you no what the exact color is before hand,  with labels on the back telling the name and everything , I think that is very helpful when buy a product.
 Benecos Natural Eye Liner - Bright Blue- One thing I do love about this eyeliner packaging is it had the color coated label on the end so it easy to find , this is like most eyeliner ,  come in a sleek black pencil form( sharp-able ) with a black cap .
 Benescos Natural Multi Effect Mascara-The packaging is like any mascara , normal mascara packaging with the mascara wand , also with the label on the  black mascara tube in pretty pink writing .
Price~$ 39.00 USD ( Glamour Set Eyes)
