  • Gillette Venus Embrace Razor
    8.0

    Gillette Venus Embrace Razor

    The first razor I've enjoyed in years

    First off, it’s got 5 blades! It seemed really scary at first, but when I used it, it worked like it had 5 blades, but didn’t feel like it at all. It glided over my legs smoothly and I’d even consider using it without shaving cream, IF it wasn’t available. I also liked the fact that the top portion was flexible. It conformed to the curves of my legs and made it really easy to do a quick shave. Normally, if I shave too quickly, I knick myself at least twice - on each leg. Venus Embrace left me scar-free this time - yes!

  • L'Oreal Paris HiP Studio Secrets Professional Shocking Shadow Pigments

    I picked up two of these pigments at my local Rite-Aid's buy one get one free sale. The colors these pigments give are as intense as the shadow duos, but I found the powder of these to be too coarse for my liking. It's also hard to apply them dry (as I did the first time I wore it) and the powder got all over my face. I'd recommend to try using these wet, as they're a great deal if you find them on sale. Otherwise, I might pass altogether.

  • L'Oreal Paris Feria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Haircolour

    If you’ve used Feria in the past like I have, know that it’s all the same gorgeous multi-faceted colors but the formulas are totally revamped. I threw a hair dying party and here's what we loved about it. - It’s got a new applicator tip that made it really easy for me to apply the color where I wanted it - New Feria formula is thicker, non-drippy, which is good for me since I tend to make a mess most places I go - It comes with a new aromatic shimmer serum in an ampule making at-home hair dying bearable. Imagine the smell lingering from dying 4 girls’ hair! You’d be lucky to keep all your nose hairs if it weren’t for this.

  • L'Oreal Paris Ideal Skin Genesis Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 Lotion

    The lotion has a nice texture that’s rich but not too creamy and actually has a little bit of super subtle shimmer in it. It helps give me a radiance that really counts on days where makeup is minimal. The Skin Genesis is a multi-layer Cell Strengthening skincare line for preventative purposes. Marketed to those around 30 (that’s me!), Skin Genesis is supposed to help firm up the top layers of the skin to help me slow the look of aging.

  • CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadows

    CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadows

    Love it for Accenting the Eyes!

    Since I like the blue liner trend, I use CoverGirl’s new Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Eyeshadow in Turquoise Tempest using a small rounded smudge brush. I dampen the brush by spritzing a little water to the bristles before picking up the color with it. It helps to intensify the shade even more and allow you to line the color precisely to the lashline.

  • Tria Laser Hair Removal System

    Although this comes with a hefty price tag ($995 US), it really works. I did a test patch on my friend's leg and after only 2 sessions, there's no more hair growth in the treated area! Afterwards, I zapped my underarms - and while that area hurts a little bit when you laser it, the idea of no more shaving is well worth it!

    MAC Dazzleglass

    Holy Sparkle, Batman!

    These babies give a super fierce sparkle to your pout, and although some might argue that the glitter is too chunky, I definitely think there’s always a time and a place for this high-wattage shimmer. Glamour OD, a kind of scary bright corally pink shade in the tube, applies on as a sheer, brighter pink with gorgeous flashes of that dazzly shimmer that’s really starting to grow on me.

  • CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 3-Kit Shadows

    Golden Sunset eye shadow trio has three pretty shades of golden copper and bronze. I love that these are pretty pigmented and silkier than what you’d imagine from a mass beauty brand. For super quick gold look, wear the darkest shade at the lash line and fan out the color using the middle gold shade in the crease. Finally highlight with the lightest color.

  • Jan Marini Skin Research Age Intervention Eyelash Conditioner

    I've been using this inconsistently for the past few weeks so I haven't noticed any length of fullness yet but have noticed that my lashes are stronger than before. When I curl my lashes, none fall out where as before I'd always accidentally pluck out one or two. I'm going to use this for a few more weeks to see what happens!

  • Aussie Opposites Attract Shampoo

    Aussie Opposites Attract Shampoo

    Aussie says Opposites Attract Shampoo

    I always use drugstore brands for my hair because it’s inexpensive and, honestly, because I can’t really tell how products work on my mane. I have fine hair that needs minimal attention because I’m just not that savvy when it comes to styling and have pretty much given up on trying - LOL. With that said, all I need is something that makes my hair look and feel soft, is manageable and affordable. Aussie’s Opposites Attract Shampoo smells deliciously luscious and tropical and for $3 bucks a pop, I really can’t ask for anything more! I’ve noticed that I use significantly less product with Opposites Attract versus other shampoos and conditioners I’ve used in the past. And… with this product, I don’t need conditioner! That’s a completely foreign concept to me. Just the shampoo leaves my looks clean, shiny, and best of all, untangled!
