Keys to My Heart
I love love love Keys to My Karma. This is a rich red and can almost rival Big Apple Red and OPI Red. I love that this is just as shiny as the rest of the reds but it also has that warmth that the other reds lack. I usually scour Ulta to find OPI in the sale section. My heart skips a beat when I find a new OPI color that I don't already have. I am still looking for the other India Collection colors, but fear that I may be too late.

There a very few products in the world that do not contain chemicals that are somewhat toxic. Anyhoo, the colors that are offered are phenomenal. They last for an entire week (if you keep putting top coat on at least once every two days). For a brilliant color, choose Big Apple Red for a HOT summer look.

I really liked this matte formula. I usually don't like to wear matte lip...anything. Most of the formulas that I have tried are really dry. If I haven't used lip balm or am not hydrated, I find my lips show it and when using a matte lipstick, it's exaggerated. This on the other hand is really creamy. Yeah I know, "Hello, it says cream in the name!" But in all honesty, it really is and I would rather have 4 of these than one of NARS lip gloss. I really like the color Stockholm. It gives the perfect amount of coverage. Give it a try, you might really like this.

My all-time favorite glossimer is Giggle. It is a non-Anglo woman's nude lip color. The only thing I dislike is that if the wind is blowing you will surely have hair ON your lips. It is very sticky and will get anything else sticky, but it feels luxe compared to some others out there. Make sure that this is the last thing to go on!

Fun colors, too tacky
Oh Carol. This was a unique idea. The bottle reminds me of a nail polish bottle. This is one of the weirdest designs out there. You literally brush the gloss onto your lips like if it were a nail. Sigh. The gloss is really sticky but it does give high shine. The colors range from the dull to the punchiest of colors. I own about three of these suckers and my favorite is Groovy. It is a punchy coral color with glitter. I would not recommend wearing these if you are more on the conservative side or using these for work. These glosses do contain a considerable amount of glitter. Be forewarned that this will leave glitter on anything your lips touch. It will also leave the surface of anything you put your lips to tacky. If you know it will be windy, make sure this is not the gloss that you put on. Otherwise you will have hair in your gloss and gloss in your hair.

Although I am not a huge fan of Vaseline lotion, this is one that I actually like for the scent. The scent is so light that I don't find myself with watery eyes and sneezing because of the fragrance.

I like the lotion but I find it too watery. It's good for cold mornings when I'm in a hurry to get dressed. I can put this on and within a few minutes, I am able to put my tights on without worry that I will stick to them. This is not my go to product especially if I am a little ashy. Since it is so watery, I find myself having to use it more often to keep my skin hydrated. I think I'll skip this lotion and continue using Korres.

Take away my flakies!
I have been looking for a facial scrub that would remove my dead skin cells. I have finally found one! I used this just as the directions said and geez! I had better looking skin in less than 10 minutes. I used it with my Clarisonic and it worked wonders. My skin did get a slight tingle from the gel, but it doesn’t have the abrasive little beads that the other scrubs have. I really cannot say anything bad about this gel. Try it, you might find that you really like it. The Nuance line is only sold at CVS. My suggestion for about $8 you can’t go wrong! Yes you might be able to find something a little cheaper but I don’t think you will find anything that comes close to this for less than $30.

Ladies this is a multi-tasking gel. Keyword gel. It will feel heavy for those with finer hair but it tames frizz. I love that I can use this and not worry about having to put on a heat protector. It already has it in the product. That makes it easier on my routine and my hair doesn't have so many products in it. Also I find that my curls have definition when I use this. It really does make my curls look great. I've had my curls look limp with other products. You will definitely like his if you are constantly straightening your hair. A big plus - it doesn't leave build up on brushes or my flat iron. I know it's a bit pricey but look at the clearance section at Ulta. There are always some great finds like this back there.

This was ok. I didn't particularly like that the blush started to fade after 15 min. I go for the no makeup makeup look. I really thought it would help my routine. Unfortunately, this disappeared minutes after applying it and it really washed out. You couldn't tell I had it on but for some reason it disappeared even with primer on. Back to searching for something that stays put.
