Arctic Fox Virgin Pink

Leave a Comment
Hi all,
I'm so giddy about today's post because my hair just took a turn for the brightest and vivid color ever.
I had no intention of getting it so in yo face lol but after it was all done and left on my hair for 2 hours and 40 minutes, the results were out of this world.
Ok, so remember how I said in my last post, I was going to try a new hair dye by Arctic Fox?
Well, I went for it and got it on Amazon in the color Virgin Pink for $10.99.

It totally smells like grape candy no kidding and it's very pigmented. You can choose to dilute it with white conditioner or their Arctic Mist to make it a pastel or a diffrent pink.
I decided to take the strand test method for 30 minutes and the pre softening gray method for 15 minutes to achieve the first round of color preference. In the picture below, you will see that strand is more of a cooler soft pink which made me excited and my gray was grabbing the color as well.

Again, I'm new into these fantasy colors so I'm bound to make mistakes. When I was ready to do my whole head, I decided to leave the color way longer and Boom the pictures speak for themselves. I know the color will fade which will be nice if it fades to a beautiful toned down pink. But I'm super impressed with this product and how well it took my gray as well. So far I give Arctic Fox Virgin Pink 2 thumbs up :) and it did not stain my pillowcase. Yay!

                                                 
                                                    My before

What I was expecting! this was my 30 min strand test

What I got!
My hubby said I reminded him of the movie Trolls. LOL
This color is Amazing!

All dolled up! Virgin Pink even grabbed some of my darker hair as well.


Stay tuned for my next post on The Color Wheel Gallery

Awesome Jesus Tees And My New Song In the Midst of the Storm

Leave a Comment

As many of you may or may not know last year in 2015, I was going through an illness in my body that almost led us to believe it was cancer. I was going through the wringer with many tests and exams and through it all I was trusting in Jesus and praised him in the midst of the storm.
Although, when I tried to sing in the beginning of the storm my voice would not come out because of the pain I would feel in my body. However, the Holy Spirit gave me this song to write and sing and when I had more strength, I was able to use my voice again for his people and for his glory! I am healed now and I thank God for it everyday!
Today someone needs His healing physically, emotionally and mentally so if this is you, listen to the lyrics of this song and carry it in your heart and on your mind and be encouraged and hopeful. Jesus is our healer! I want to thank my sista friend Lissette Silva for reminding me of what God has given me to share with the world.
Prayer is powerful! And miracles and Healing still exist!
In this video below, I was sick but still hopeful in my miracle from above...Have a blessed day❤️🙏🏼



  These were the words I posted on my FB page when I shared this accapella video of me singing "In the Midst of the Storm.
As people were watching, liking, sharing and receiving encouragement from the song, it touched a Christian T-shirt retailer to contact me on Instagram. He said every month he helps out ministries by sharing some of the proceeds from his shirt sales and asked if I wanted to be a part of it as well. I was so touched by his offer that I said Wow at first and then yes. Why? because not many do this and this person does because he has a heart to help others.

I asked him if he would be able to make a design including my song title because it was so personal to me and he happily agreed.
I am so delighted with this design and I wear it knowing what I was going through and where God has me now. 
This shirt design is truly a testament of remaining still and trusting in God through it all.

Awesome Jesus Tees was gracious enough to feature me on their website wearing the shirt. Since some of the proceeds go to my singing ministry, I would love to record my song "In the Midst of the Storm" and share it to the world to bring encouragement, hope and peace.

Ladies, Would you like to sow in this new recording and wear this shirt yourself and be a witness of what God has pulled you through or out of? If so you can order your shirt here at Awesome Jesus Tees for $22.99 with free shipping or if you are not interested in purchasing a shirt and would like to donate directly to my ministry so I can prepare a budget to record this new song, you can send donations through paypal at gevelmarrero@gmail.com
I thank you from the bottom of my heart and may God bless you all.

Beauty For Real Blush + Glo Cream Blush and Luminizer In The Pink

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

This is a beautiful blush and highlight duo called In The Pink and it smells wonderful as well like vanilla cupcakes. I found that the blush is very creamy, easy to apply and pigmented. The highlighter melted into my skin and gave a beautiful natural glow. In the sunlight, you are able to see my pink flushed cheeks with a natural glow. I did have to lock it in with my banana setting powder in order for it to last. This product can disappear on the skin if blended too much at first application so I had to reapply another layer for it to show, so it's not highly pigmented but it does have pigment for that natural flush. Stay tuned for more products I got from Beauty For Real. You can check them out on www.beautyforreal.com and also purchase some of their products on Amazon for a bit less.

A Light Blue Summer Dress

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

This is such a pretty delicate summer dress from the brand She In that reminds me of something Jane would wear from the movie Descendants, only because it's soft and feminine and in her color light blue. The dress is sleeveless and has a beautiful scalloped design on the hem as well. The material is made out of  98% Polyester and 2% Spandex. Since the dress has a round neck, it will look good with a long chain or pendant or a statement necklace.
I ordered a Small and it fit just right. For sizing references, I'm 109 pounds with a 34 B bust, a 27 inch waist at 5'2 inches tall.
In the pictures below, I wore it with a chunky embellished statement necklace, a chain necklace and both looked great and stylish.

Cost: $15.99

Aesthetica Small Powder Contour and Blending Makeup Brush

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

This is such a soft brush and I found it to be multipurpose. I not only used it to apply and blend my crease shadow, I used it to apply shadow on the brow bone, used it for my outer corner and lower lash line. In order for me to use it to do my whole eye, I had to wipe shadow off with tissue then continue application. I used my Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette because this shadow is super pigmented and I wanted to put the Aesthetica brush to the test and it passed. Yay! I was so very pleased with my Smokey eye look. I never used it for contouring but you can definitely contour your eye crease with it. Overall, this brush is soft and dense and oddly shaped for a blending brush but as it strokes, it's fluffy and blends beautifully. I have yet to try it with cream or liquid products but I will soon. A small vegan and cruelty free brush that applies and blends like a dream? Yes, is not a dream any longer. LOL Great Job Aesthetica!

Cost: $8.99

Beauty For Real D-light Lip Gloss

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

This is such a beautiful lip gloss in the color D-Light which is a pigmented soft pink. It does look darker in the tube and when swatched so you kind of get the element of surprise with D-Light on your lips. The gloss is non sticky and it is very minty which smells nice and refreshes the lips at the same time. I also like that on this lippie there is a light on the wand and a mirror on the tube for a beautiful and precise lit lip application.
Since it's a lip gloss, it does fade but I don't mind reapplying because it smells so good. This gloss is paraben and cruelty free which is a bonus, made in the USA and is infused with aloe vera, Avocado Oil, Grape Seed, Green Tea and Peppermint Oil. Overall, a beautiful gloss with shine.
Stay tuned for more products I got from Beauty For Real. You can check them out on www.beautyforreal.com and also purchase some of their products on Amazon for a bit less.
