Neocell Ceramides 

Leave a Comment

Press SampleProduct given for testing and review purposes.

When I was asked to test out this product I was very skeptical especially because it involved taking it in pill form. To be honest, I never heard of ceramides before so I decided to give it a try and to my surprise the results after using it we’re phenomenal.
I started on Jan 1, 2017 and stopped using it on February 1.

I was able to see a dramatic difference after 17 days of using the product and more so after I finished the bottle.
My skin was hydrated and the lines disappeared! I couldn’t believe it but these pills from Neocell actually work.
They are available at Walgreens, CVs, Sams Club, Bed Bath and Beyond and Face Values stores.
These before and afters are the real deal! My real deal🙌💕
More info here: Neocell

Ceramides skin hydrator
Results start in just 15 days!
Clinically tested ceramides increase:
Moisture by up to 36%
Skin smoothness by up to 34%

Juno & Co. Beauty

Leave a Comment
Press SampleProduct given for testing and review purposes.

Have you heard of Juno & Co.? If not, then let me introduce you to a new online beauty store that will not break your budget while getting quality products. The store ranges from skincare to makeup tools all at affordable prices starting at $1.00. Juno & Co. recently sent me some goodies and I can't wait to show you incase you might be interested in navigating this economical beauty site.
Now, be aware these products are more of Indie name brands so you might not find them at Sephora or Ulta.
They also design some of their own products like these fabulous and luxurious synthetic and cruelty free brushes for only $2 bucks each. I was very surprised at the craftsmanship, how beautifully they applied and how soft they felt.

The black acrylic brush handles have Juno & Co. printed on them and they are listed as so in no particular order with adorable punny names:

They also sent two of their Fusion Micro Fiber Sponges and a pair of falsies cased in a cute lollipop fashion.
The sponge is super soft and it blended my foundation flawlessly. It does have a unique design compared to the beauty blender but it works just as well when wet or dry.
As for the $1lashes, unfortunately they weren't my style and the band was too thick. I tried cutting them but they still did not look right on me. So although the packaging is cute, the lashes in my opinion were not my cup of tea. 
Overall, I was very pleased with the sponges and the brushes and was able to create a makeup look. The only brush I did not use was the eyeshadow blender brush because I  saved it so well, I forgot where I put it but that will be my next makeup tool to use.

Here's the finished look:
Concealer is on ✔
BB Cream is on ✔
Powder is on ✔
Blush is on ✔
Contour is on 
Highlight is on ✔ all using the Juno & Co makeup tools.

To find these makeup tools and more just go to Juno & Co.

Bad Habit Beauty Aphrodite Palette eye looks and sneak peek to the new launch

Leave a Comment

Hello, I hope everyone is having a blessed and productive day! In my last post, I introduced the Bad Habit Beauty Aphrodite palette with some swatches. Recently,  I was able to play with it.  Here are some quick and easy looks I did using this bad boy palette. The quality of these shadows are superb! All you need is eye primer and water or mixing medium or setting spray to work with the textured shadows to get the best results.

For the first look I created, I used Coy, Flirt, Blushing and the uniquely textured shadow Crush. To get the intense vibrancy of Crush I used it with the NYX dewy finish spray and the longevity was greater than I expected. 

Here's the second look I did with the shades Coy, Romance, Blushing and Beauty. I used Beauty with the same setting spray to intensify the color more on the lids. This Palette is worth all the hype! Not too mention the 10 💵 price tag.☺️ 

To my surprise on IG, I saw this! Yeah! Bad Habit is coming out with another dupe for the Huda Beauty palette and this time it's for her Desert Dusk. Bad Habit will name thiers Athena pictured below.  I can't wait for this new launch (clapping my hands excitedly)
If you missed my last post, here's the linky:) The Aphrodite palette

New Hair Change with Guy Tang Mydentity

Leave a Comment

I was very confused on what I wanted may hair to look like after dying my highlights magenta. My birthday is coming up in December and I'll be hitting 43 so I thought to myself maybe some more pink highlights but in a softer shade or caramel blonde.
So, I  decided to get my hair chopped off into a chin length straight bob and got some hair color ideas from my friends on FB.
One friend reached out to me who happened to be a hairstylist and she came up with this concoction which I like to call Galaxy Hair but in a cool way. The highlights idea was gone and a full head of hair color was on the horizon.
She used Guy Tang's new color line called Mydentity. But the process to get my dark hair this galactic took hours but the end result was worth it.

                                                    Here's the Before!
                                             Here's the Between! 
                                            Yep I went there! 😂

   My hair reached a level 9 and this was this was the inspo picture we decided on using.
 She did a shadow root using a demi- permanent using Dusty Lavender and 6 volume in developer shown here which turned into a dark purple.

Then for the rest of my hair she combined Pink Diamond and Ultra Violet to create a Lavender shade.

After doing chemistry on my hair, this was the  final and fabulous result and I was very very pleased. :)

So far, I have gotten so many compliments and my hubby even loves it! Of course, with hair like this hight maintenance is involved like conditioning it and touching up the color frequently to keep it vibrant. Let's see how long it lasts, me and my hair phases...

The Aphrodite Palette From Bad Habit Beauty

Leave a Comment
 I Just got the Aphrodite palette in the mail.☺️ These shades are pigmented and beautiful and for only 10 bucks plus free shipping on the shophush_ app which you can download on the google play store for Android or on the App store on I phone.
The 18 shadows are a dupe for the Huda Beauty Rose Gold palette but without the $65 dollar 💵 tag. I can’t wait to play with it! It sold out once so get it before they are gone again.

Here are some finger swatches of the #aphroditepalette. There’s a mix of mattes, shimmers and texture making it fun and versatile. So far, they feel creamy and buttery and can be a bit messy but that's how the Huda Beauty one was as well when I switched it at Sephora.

I was very pleased with the packaging and that no damage was made to the palette in shipment       thanks to all that bubble wrap. 😀

I can't wait to see how they perform on my eyes! Stay Tuned...

I don't understand why this palette is not getting the love it deserves. The Double Duty Tarte Dream Big 8 pan Amazonian clay eyeshadow palette has a wonderful scent of a chocolate desert and the shades are soft, buttery and pigmented.

  • You Can (gold)
  • Happening (plum)
  • Hustle (black luster)
  • Ambitious (cream)
  • Risk Taker (pale pink shimmer)

Here is a look I created with this palette. I really like how the colors blended well and the staying power lasted 8 hours under a good primer and or concealer.

For the Crease: happening
 Brow bone: ambitious 
 Lid: This is it 
 Outer corner: all in 
 Lower lash line: happening and all in 
 Brows: Divaderme in Cappuccino Brown
