Urban Decay Vice Palette

Ladies this “Urban Decay Vice Palette” is a must have for your makeup collection! It contains twenty insanely gorgeous colors! Plus, it has a double sided eye shadow brush and comes in a sleek soft case that makes it easy for travel. The colors are unique, highly pigmented, and easy to blend. The only problem that I see is Urban Decay keeps costing me tons of money because they keep making AWESOME palettes!

They’re Real

They’re Real mascara by Benefit will leave people asking, “Are They Real”? I have a top 5 favorite mascara list and this one is one just made it to the top of that list! I love everything about it and its totally worth the splurge! It has a special designed brush that gets every lash and emphasizes your real lashes. Every mascara claims that they are the best and its usually a lot of hype but this one is GREAT! FYI- I always wear two mascaras because it really gives you loooooooong lashes! This particular one paired up with my YSL Faux Lash gives me extremely long, curled and full lashes.
Results observed in a consumer panel survey reveals: 94% saw dramatic length & volume, 90% saw base to tip curl, 94% saw visible lift, and 100% saw long-wearing results!

Beauty Insider

Ladies! I stopped in Sephora to buy some mascara which I will be raving about in another post because its so AWESOME and I scored a gift with my 500 points. They are currently giving away a Christian Dior gift set that comes with two of their new top seller mini perfumes and a mini lipstick! I love sephora for rewarding us customers that spend so much money with them by giving us points to buy gift sets. 🙂 Its the Dior Addict Eau Sensuelle and the Dior Addict Eau Fraiche which both smell sexy!
Addict Eau Sensuelle has a soft fresh floral scent with notes of jasmine, rose, cedar, and white musk.
Addict Eau Fraiche has a fruity floral scent with bergamont, grapefruit, freesia, pomegranate, lotus flower, woods and white musk.
Dior Addict Lipstick is 578 Diorkiss which has a pinkish/red tint.

Nivea Sparkle

I wanted to share with you my love for these two Nivea products! For over the counter products they both rock and are gentle, moisturizing, and have a tantalizing smell (orange blossom & white calla blossom scent)! Plus, they are also compatible with a spray tan. Ladies, if you spray tan they won’t strip your tan. Products that contain mineral oil and petroleum will strip a tan quicker so make sure you read the ingredients! Seeing how I spray tan regularly I’m happy to share with you that both of these work well and smell fabulous!

Nars Eyes

Nars Trio Eyeshadow “High Society” is their Fall Limited Edition and I’m digging the harmonious green and purple eyeshadow shades. These colors can be worn together or alone. I also purchased the green eye liner “Rue De Rivoli” to wear with the trio. My eyes tend to change color depending on what I’m wearing from blue to green and sometimes they almost look grey. Applying these colors with the green eye liner make my eyes pop! 🙂 I will try and post an eye with the colors later!
FYI: These colors look great with green or brown eyes

Shea Butter Body Scrub

As women we spend so much time multitasking putting work, family, etc before our own needs that we tend to neglect pampering ourselves. So, I think you should always mark some time off on your calendar and call it “ME TIME”! For some it may seem or feel a bit indulgent but YOU deserve it. After all, we only live once and the spa is relaxing and reduces stress. Let’s not forget its healthy to have ME time (everyone needs time to themselves)! That’s exactly what I did yesterday with my girlfriend Jen at the Spa at Four Seasons. We took an afternoon venture downtown for a hot stone massage and a scrub. I decided to do a scrub because I felt I was becoming a statistic always ordering a typical massage and facial. My skin has been extremely dry, therefore I went with the moisturizing shea butter and salt scrub which is infused with shea butter, sunflower oil, and safflower oil. It was perfect for my over exposed dry skin. My spa therapist applied the scrub all over me, then I rinsed off the scrub in the shower attached to the room, and she then applied shea butter all over my skin. WOWZERS! Incredibly smooth baby soft skin!
After, I decided to purchase the ISUN shea butter body scrub. It’s a nourishing & moisturizing body exfoliant with organic shea butter and mineral salts. Infused with lavender, peppermint, and rosemary essential oils. I figured I would give myself a weekly scrub at home and try to maintain healthy skin with a glow. 😉
Alternative: You can make scrubs at home by using sugar, salt, olive oil, or purchase an oil (saffron, sunflower, etc), and you can add scented oil for a pleasant smell (lavender, mandarin, etc). Budgeted scrubs that will get the job done!
