End of March: Reviews

Ok its that time of year again, the end of march! Is it just me or does march seem incredibly LONGER than any other month of the year! And i am SO glad its over! So, we have here some things that i have purchaced throughout mrach, some things I purchaced before, but mostly i used them the most this month. I have offically swiched from going to college in flordia, where i live, to going to college in Ohio. I know WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD I DO THAT?!? Well, i am going into nursing and one of the best is in Colombus, so i dedcided it would be cheaper because i dont have to live on campus cause my aunt lives in columbus so i live with her now and i have been using a lot of different products cause i have a lot of dry skin and its freaking cold up here so that = more dryness.

One life saver that i usually dont use a lot in flordia cause i dont wear an overload of foundation is

This tinted mousterizer (sorry for the possible horrible spelling) I cant spell Physicians Formula either so i am sorry about that. But this is soo good for dry skin and it really helps with the cold winter months. So far, no complaints.

Second is Lash blast.. and....

i am not impressed. I was forced to get it cause it was on sale to meet my under 6 dollar guidelines. So i got it and i wish i hadent. I dont like the brush AT ALL and people seem to love it but i honeslty dont get it. It doesnt give any more volume than my one by one and i personally just dont seem impressed. It curles amazing though so thats a plus.

Lastly is NYX eye pallets, idk what the proper name is for them. The one on the left is the one I have its just a series of shimmery brows.

I love them! the color is so cute and shimmery and it brings the green out in my eyes! I love them and there cheap and like soft, idk how to explaine it! But there so good for only 7 bucks!

Ok so ill ttyl! Hope this helps and God Bless, and Good night!

Country Chic: Bath and Body Works Review

Guys, I am in love with a new lotion from B&BW!!! It's called Country Chic

It came with a free tote bag thing. It smells AMAZING!! I am unsure when it goes on sale because mine was free with purchace. It also makes my skin feel so soft, and i am usually allergic to perfumy lotions, and this is just awesome. The smell is so sweet, and it's not strong! I can't wait for the rest of the collection because i WILL buy the rest of the collection! This stuff is GOOD GOOD GOOD!

End of Winter Update

Alright so I am going to post a little end-of-winter update:

update is i need HELP! MY LAPTOP IS BROKENNN! ): Its a compaq, dont buy them. My dad did cause he knew i needed one for my first semester of college, but i am a junior now, and  I actually need one that works. So my question is Mac? Is it worth the money? I mean my sister has one but it was onsale for a super good price, and i cant get that deal, so is it worth the money? I want to know cause its coming out of my pay check so i need to know! Please give me your HONEST opinion.

Winter Favorites!

Guys, ITS SPRING, tomorrow that is. So now it is time for my winter favorites. Ok, so i am lucky, i live in flordia and we do not get a lot of cold weather here, even in the winter. But, my cousins live in Michigan and i also have realitives in Ohio, Minnesota, and a few in Canada, therefore i visit those places A LOT in the winter seasons. My family has an over load of winter birthdays, and Chistmas is a HUGE holiday for my HUGE family, so we alternate where we have it every year. This year we had our family birthday, a celebration if all our winter birthdays, in Ohio, and we had our family Christmas in Michigan. I also visited my grandparents in Canada for two weeks during the winter season. So, as you can see, I get a fair share of the winter weather. I will be doing this post for all of my absolute favorite winter products.

First, I have define a line eyeliner in black. I love this eyeliner! I use it in my upper lashline and it stays all day, and the color never fades! And get this, the color is sooo rich and beautiful i only needed ONE swipe and i was covered!

I've already reviewed this, but i love it. It's a perfact setting powder, and i can wear it alone!

OK, so this is not from the drugstore, but i wanted to mention it. I love this foundation. Its PERFACT for dry, sensitive skin. It leaves my skin feeling soft, light, and smooth!I'd recommend it to anyone who needs a good foundation!

Next, is maybelline one by one mascara. Its great! And its CHEAP! I refuse to use lashblast becasue its like 8 bucks, and this is only 6, and to me it does the job.

Last, I will do hair products! I love Pantene! Espessily this product. It smells AMAZING, not to miss that it leaves your hair so so soft and beautiful! I can ONLY find it at Meijer at my cousins though! They dont have it here like anywhere! I have to get mine online, or my cousins ship it to me sometimes, so if your from Fort Meyers and you know where to get this, PLEASE tell me! 

Finally, Shampooie and conditiner! Mousture balance is soo good for my dry winter hair! This is the best product i have used on it so far!

Hope this helps guys, and please, please note that I make this blog for those people who need help finding products that actually WORK and i will NOT review or mention anyhting that I just want to review to make the company look bad. Everything is my open and honest opinion. Remeber to follow me on twitter ( or e-mail me to get a hold of me directly, (
God Bless (:!

Mid-March Do'd and Don'ts

Its mid-march, and im going to be doing a do's and don'ts every month or two months or so in the middle of each month. Sometimes it will lean more twards advice and sometimes it will lean more twards do's and dont's. This month i'm shooting for dos and donts, so lets get started!!
Read reviews! They are your friends!!! Trust me on this!! Please! Reviews are there for you in making your decision. More times than one i have gone on a website to browse and i find a product that i think i'm going to like and i read what the website says and they are going to make it sound divine, and then you get it and it is HORRIBLE! But reviews dont lie! People are telling you how they feel about the product and most likely there not lieing. What i like to do is take 2 pages or so of reviews. Count the good ones and then count the bad ones. Find the advrage of each. Which one is heigher? Thats your answer, if there are more good, then buy it, if there are more bad, ditch it and move on!
March Example:
Smokey Shadow Blast by Covergirl. I HAD to have it! It looks sooo pretty on Drew in the commercials, i even looked online at a video on how to use it! Worst product ever. It, after one blink, goes in your crease! All of it! Its so greesey and heavy and just not good. I then looked online at reviews and i found that i wasnt the only one who felt this way.
REASURCH! Sometimes it seems reviews arent enough and it is perfactly normal to go online and cyber stock your next victim. I mean your next makeup/hair product. Google is your friend!!
March Example:
I learned from my shadow blast malfunction so i looked up a new foundation i have been dieing to try. It was by Tarte, so i knew i'd be paying a really good deal of money on it. I have really dry skin and I needed a liquid foundation that will cover that all day and not dry out my skin or leave a heavy, cakey feeling. I reasurched it and got it and it was amazing! Best product ever and i plan to include it in my witer favorites! However, I did say im going to steer clear of non-drugstore products so i will NOT be doing a review on it, i will just simply breefly explain it. If you want a full review on it REQUEST it by e-mailing me on here, commenting, or e-mailing me at
Always listen to the sales assicociate. I know thats their job, to tell you what is, and isnt a good idea and such, but most times there paid commision. That means they get paid for the products they sell. So there going to try and sell you the most expencive thing they can give to you! Espessily in this ecconomy. So what i suggest is that you know what you want going onto a store, so when you need an answer, have a question like "would this product cover my redness?" or "What kind of coverage does this foundation give?" And if they answer with no.. this 100 dollar more expencive product will though or thats a crappy foundation buy this one for only 50 dollars more to get the coverage you need! You know there only yanking your chain.
March Exaple:
Ultra. i Love that store but heavens sake! The people there JUMP DOWN MY THROAT from the second i stepped in the place! Luckly i knew what i wanted or i would have been talked into things i didnt even know i needed!

Unfortinuatly, i dont have a 2nd dont on the list this month. In the future I'll try and do at least 2 of each, but this month thats all i've come across!
Thanks for reading and hope this helps! God bless!

Rimmel London haul!

I have to admitt, I love Rimmel London products because they are inexpencive, and good quality! I went to Target and I took a look at a few products i'd like to review! Enjoy!

First Rimmel soft kohl eye pencil in pure white. Sorry that this picture is hard to see, but this is the only one i could find. I think its so bennificial to have a white liner cause it brightens your eyes and makes you look awake! This eye pencil is very inexpencive at around $3.75 and it goes on my waterline quite nicely! Over all i am glod i made the purchace!

OK, so my next item is this eyefull eye pencil! I am unsure the exact name of the color but it is the one in the picture. I love the color so much! it is so so pretty! It goes on lighter than the pencil looks and has shimmers of gold and sliver. My only problem is it creases ):! I have this problem with a lot of cream based eye pencils but i found a way to fix it! After applying, simply apply a small ammount of powder eye shodow with the same shade, or a complimenting shade such as a sliver, pale gold, or white. It stays on and doesnt crease!

The last product i am going to review is the stay matter pressed powder in translucent. Even though I live in flordia, I don't live on the beach, and i do not have a very good tan in the winter. This color matches my skin tone perfactly! I love it! Its so light weight, not cakey, and very soft on my skin! It doesnt make my skin irritated and it covers  all mmy redness, so i can wear it alone, or use it as a setting powder.

March Maddenss!

Flip flops, Flip flops and more flip flops!
What girl has too many flip flops? (dont ask my mother that question!) I love old navybecause there soo colorfull and affordable!

Next on the march madness list is BATH AND BODY WORKS!!! Idk which is worse old navy addiction or bath and body addiction i found soo many good deals on my most recent shopping trip, i just had to share!! First, Candles. Their candles can get pricy, but i walked in and i saw a sign that changed everything! It said, and i quote, "2 for $20" I almost fainted! ok i was being a little dramatic there but still! Their spring candles smell like tropical paradise! There amazing! The two i ended up going with were Carribean escape (above), and Island margarita (below)!
And my final March Maddness splurge was the one and only bath and body collection of new fragrences.......
These were buy 2 get one free, and orginally i was going to choose my favorite and get the whole collection of this, the body wash and lotion, but i couldnt decide what one was my favorite. I had to have them all! They all smell soo goood! I for sure plan on going back and purchacing the whole set to all of them. I am going to the bahammas this summer and i wanted one of these ones to take with me and i think i am going with Hawaii Coconut! I think its my favorite! Ill be sure to do a review once i get my hands on the lotion and body wash ;)!

Sonia Kashuk: Nail polish reviews

16Tauped: I decided to splurge and buy this nail polish. I was really impressed! I love sonia kashuk's products and i am almost never disapointed when it comes to her. I love this nail polish, however every story has two sides. This product has a beautiful color and goes on nicely, but it's thick and hard to dry. It aslo doesnt stay on very well at all. I have to constantly put on new coats of clear for it to keep the shine and stay on for a longer period of time. This is not uncommon with nail polishes though. So over all, I'd buy it again.
19Tutti Frutti: This is by far my favorite new nail polish of the spring season! I do not have the same problem with this one as i do the other nail polish above. It stays on, keeps its shine, and is so so cute! This is the PERFACT color for the warmer weather and i absolutly LOVE it! I  wasnt expceting buying this but when i went into target, i automaticly go to the Sonia Kashuk section and I saw it and had to have it!

Say Yes To Cucumbers: Review

So, I have decided for my first review i would do something i found at my local target here in Flordia. Say yes to cucumbers? YES YES YES!!!! I love this product. It was around $6! I have such red, sensitive skin and this stuff is amazing! Its my first Say yes to...... product and i know it will not be my last! What i love about it most is its organic, and it leaves my skin feeling as fresh as it looks! I just absolutly love this stuff and i can't express to you enough how much it has saved me! I am so bad with washing my face because it's so unpleasnt when it comes to me. My skin just simply doesnt like to be messed with. Its dry, and stubborn. This stuff doesnt dry out my skin, I dont even need a moustrizer! I never thought i'd say that! Its so fresh smelling too! I just love it! I can't get enough!


Ok, so i am new to all of this, but I am intrested in bloging since i've been reading other blogs and things about make-up products and fashion. I am aware that a lot of people are not going to read this and i am ok with that because i'm just starting out and trying something new. By the way, if you are reading this, I have no clue how to work this website, so my blog posts could be boring for the first few times, untill I get the hang of it. I am intrested in reviewing products i have tried to give you all information on whats what in the make-up community. The stuff i'll most likely be including are:
-Make-up products (mostly drugstore brands)
-Facial clensers and lotions
-Hair products
I really hope you bennifit from reading my blog and i hope you can learn a lot about whats good and whats not in the make up industry!
