Memorial 🇺🇸 Day -Not about parties, BBQs, picnics… It’s about honoring and remembering those that lost their lives!!

I want to thank my husband, my son, my uncles, cousins, friends, and all those who have served, and still serving to protect this country, and our freedom…

FB_IMG_1496066658594

For many, Memorial Day has lost its meaning or they don’t understand that when they say “Happy Memorial Day” it’s not a happy day. Many died and this day is so much more than a day off work, partying, drinking, or BBQ’s.

IMG_20170529_104157

Four decades ago Congress changed the date from its traditional May 30 to the last Monday in May to give people a three-day weekend. Taking what was once a solemn day of remembrance into one that is associated with BBQ’s, leisure and recreation.

But many veterans groups have advocated that Memorial Day be switched back to May 30. I for one agree, and support those groups such as the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, in trying to raise awareness with its #GoSilent campaign. This encourages Americans to pause for a moment of silence at 3 pm Monday to remember the nation’s fallen.

Screenshot_20170529-102637

I for one will definitely be taking that moment of silence on Monday 3PM, in honor and remembering those men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. That is the very least I could do, would you join me??

Yaoshun UV/LED Nail Lamp

This nail lamp is pretty cool, I normally get my nails done at the salon. I’m really tired of paying $30+ every 2 weeks for the gel manicure.  So one day while shopping online for some nail polishes to do in between salon visits I ran into their gel polish, which of course winded up showing me this little nail dryer.

Now when I first got the nail dryer mine’s wouldn’t stay when I tried using it. I searched the internet to see if I could find trouble shooting tips. And a few that I saw mentioned that it might be the cord I contacted the seller and was sent immediately a replacement cord. Now the lamp works exactly as described, it came packaged perfectly. I love the timer options they function great there is a 10, 30, and 60 sec timer. My hands fit perfectly in the lamp not like some lamps that you have to do a few fingers at a time.

Included in Package: 

1pcs x 36W Lamp

People claim that this doesn’t cure your gel nails under the lamp. This does work, you got to remember that between coats the gel remains tacky, that’s just what happens. When you put on your top coat you let your nails cure under the lamp for 2 min. When done they will remain tacky, but you have to wipe them with alcohol. That is the key on what removes the tackiness this is done in the salons as well. So if you forget that the last step to clean the gel nails with alcohol you will have that tackiness, and will think that they never cured or dry.

naildryer1

I’m so happy that I no longer have to pay $30+ to get a gel manicure done when I now do it myself in the comfort of my own living room. I will admit that overall, it takes me about an hour or so and I do mess up with not so perfectly nails. But I do anticipate it taking me less time each time I do it, and will be much better once I get the hang of it. If you’re considering this lamp…buy it!

naildryer3

The directions that come with this UV lamp are minimal. But its very easy to use, there is a tray on the bottom that does have a tabs for removal of the bottom. If you’re interested in buying this item please click here 👉🏻 Yaoshun (Y&S) UV/LED Nail Dryer

💅🏻 8 Piece Yao Shun Soak Off Gel UV Nail Polishes 💅🏻

⭐⭐⭐⭐

So I had a opportunity to try this 8 piece UV gel nail polishes and for the price and total number of pieces it’s not a bad deal. You get the following 6 different gel colors purple; gray; blush pink; peach yellow; brown; blood brown you also get 1 top coat, and a base coat.

They are not supposed to cause harm to skins or nails, I didn’t get any irritation from them. They are also non-toxic no high polish smell like some are, the top coat was a little strong but out of all 8 pieces that was the only one. I applied them to my natural nail, but you can also use UV gel, acrylic, and fake nails and they all look natural.

You do require a UV/LED Lamp to cure them well I have been wearing my color for 4 days with no chipping or peeling. The bottles are very small though, so not sure how many coats you will get from each color. I have done 2 coats of the purple on myself, and my two nieces and their seems to be still a lot of polish left over.

NPFB-BLOG1

The glass bottles are adorable, they are pink with a black top. They were packaged and wrapped really well for shipping. Although the lids were screwed on tightly, the bottles were sticky, and one had a slightly tiny leak. I would’ve given them 5 stars, but like I mentioned when I opened the SECURELY styrofoam wrapped package that was tightly taped and packed around the bottles, one of the bottles had that slight leak.

I’ve always wanted to buy gel polish but I’ve found them to be expensive like $12-$14 dollars a piece. So for one color, top, and base coat I would be paying $30 + dollars.   So far the purple I love, this color looks great and no fading and it’s been 4 days. So I am pretty happy for the price and the 8 pieces I would consider buying these again in a different set of colors.

Now my only complaint other than the one bottle slightly leaking and the rest sticky I have no clue what the names are. I had to put a dot of each color to the outside of the bottle for future reference. I would recommend buying this cute set if your looking to try out UV gel polish and not want to spend a lot for the different colors.

Not bad almost 2 weeks and they seem to be holding up well except for where my nail is growing so you can see the edge of the end. Also my middle finger my nail broke which is why it look that way.

💋 My April Box #575 Sephora Review 💄

The 📮 Subscription 📫 Box: 📦 Play! by Sephora The Cost: $10

April’s Theme “Step it Up” I so loved the way they illustrated all this months products with cute pictures instead of the normal way.

sep7Kate Somerville ExfoliKate exfoliator – A dual-action exfoliator that smooths and polishes to reveal a glowing, radiant complexion in as little as one use. Lactic acid and fruit enzymes – papaya, pineapple, and pumpkin—reveal smooth skin and a brighter, healthier-looking complexion in as little as one use. Perfect for dullness, uneven texture, large pores and dark spots this .25 fl oz is valued at about $12.

sep21This 2 minutes facial has a wonderful cinnamon scent to it. They recommend to use it in the shower for the steam, but once I’m in the shower I’m kind of a in and out kind of gal. So I used a facial steamer while watching TV for the 2 minutes. I haven’t noticed much of a difference yet but I’ve only used it twice. I can say my face felt very smooth, and soft and my pores did look much smaller so time will only tell. 

sep8

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer – A translucent primer gel that smooths skin, and blurs flaws for makeup that looks better and lasts longer. Glides on for a flawless finish has antioxidants, vitamins A &E, to protect skin from damage/stress this .25 fl oz is valued at about $8.

sep18There’s nothing special about this primer, the first time I’ve ever sampled it was at Ulta when looking for primers. One of the consultants recommended it,  It’s an oil free primer to create a smooth layer before applying foundation. I use it as a backup when I run out of my “that gal -brightening face primer” 

Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover – This do-it-all formula removes water proof makeup and contains a lash-strengthening complex that’s rich in flavonoids and olive wood extracts. HydroSenn+ is a plant-derived ingredient exclusive to Sephora that leaves skin feeling soft and luxuriously comfortable. This product is ophthalmologist tested and suits sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. It is not tested on animals this .84 fl oz is valued at about $3.75

sep16I use this on my eyes because as all women know that the hardest, most difficult, and trickiest makeup to remove is mascara, and eyeliner. I love Urban Decay waterline waterproof eyeliner, and they’re real mascara from Benefit. But I hate that they work so good it’s hard taking them off, but this remover did a better job than most of the others. Also loved that it didn’t cause me any irritation, and that it isn’t tested on animals.

Make Up Forever Aqua XL Waterproof Eye Pencil – A long-wearing, waterproof eye pencil that pairs ultra-creamy glide with instant color intensity. Aqua XL Eye Pencil Waterproof Liner is a superior, long-lasting formula that will not smudge, crease, or fade until you remove it. Available in 20 shades, this .01 oz is valued at about $5.25.

sep20Now I subscribe to like 4-5 boxes every month and I will say that almost each one sends me a black eyeliner. From liquid, to pencils and I have more than I’ll ever use or know what to do with them. They said the formula glides on effortlessly without skipping or tugging ehh not really also it did smudge on me. 

sep12Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream – A concentrated 30% hyaluronic acid cream that transforms atmospheric vapor into fresh, pure water, providing your skin with a continuous burst of intense hydration that lasts up to 72 hours. Ceramides help lock in moisture, ProHyal+® helps improve hydration for healthier-looking skin, and antioxidant-rich elderberry helps defy the look of aging. The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is visibly reduced, this .25 fl oz is valued at about $8.25

sep22I have heard that Peter Thomas Roth products were awesome, and this product OMGosh!!! I am in love it felt like a creamy watery gel type cream if that makes sense. It was absorbed almost instantly, and I have oily skin and I’m prone to breakouts. I’ve used this for a week now and no breakouts, no irritation I did noticed that it didn’t last for 72 hours but that’s okay. Been using it morning before I apply my makeup, and before I head to bed leaves skin feeling super soft and smooth. It’s PRICEY but I love how it feels so I am on the fence. I will decide when I’m done with this tube as you only need a little so it should last me a good month or so.

sep11Daisy by Marc Jacobs Perfume – Every Sephora subscription box no matter the box # comes with the 5 beauty samples products, and a perfume sample. This fragrance has a fruity and floral scent with notes of strawberry, violet leaves, jasmine, and white woods. Daisy is floral with vintage edge of violet this .04 fl oz is valued at about $4.50

sep17I’m not a perfume wearer due to migraines that I get, so to me it was strong. But could just be my sensitivity to perfume. So I can’t really say whether or not it smelled good. But my daughter in law loved it, and kept it so speaking for her she liked it. But it is pricey, as you can see this tiny sample averaged $4.50. 

sep13Five deluxe samples plus a fragrance, a PLAY! pamphlet of tips and tricks, and a PLAY! PASS for in-store learning. Each box comes with a Play! Pass, which is a card you can use at a Sephora store not online to get an extra 50 rewards points, and you can also get one-on-one tutorials and with tips on the products in your Sephora PLAY box.

sep14So all in all I loved my box this month, the value for this $10 subscription was $41.75 and you can’t beat that. I would say for sure that 2 products were the clear winners for me, out of the other 3. I discovered cool items, and looking forward to next months many new products. I will be using everything besides the perfume, of course.

💄 My April Sample Choice Birchbox Review 💋

My April review of Birchbox -The sample choice stay tuned for the curated box review as well.

Birchbox is $10 a month beauty subscription. Check out my other reviews of Birchbox and Others to learn more about there monthly beauty subscription boxes!

AprilBBBlog

These were the items in my box:

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser 1 oz Starter Kit: The ultra-soft cotton muslin cloth and gentle, creamy cleanser work together to give us soft, smooth, and radiant-looking complexions. The cleanser removes dirt, makeup, and grime with eucalyptus essential oil and rosemary, plus it hydrates with cocoa butter, while the cloth exfoliates, sweeping away dull, dead skin cells. This kit comes with a sleek zip-up bag for easy storage and transport, so you can always have a healthy glow wherever you are.

Liz Earle

I have VERY sensitive skin and usually use Aveeno. I got to try out the Liz Earle cream cleanser with the muslin cloth when it came in my Birchbox this month. I will tell you that not only did my face NOT break out… But my skin felt velvety soft and smooth! So worth the price of $24 for a 3.3 oz bottle, I will be buying it. You should definitely try this smoothing facial cleaners . This sample is valued at about $7.80.

amika

amika Nourishing Mask:

When it comes to hair health, split ends and dryness are two of our worst enemies. Fight both with this nourishing, all-natural hair mask from amika. Packed with sea buckthorn berry (which is chock-full of omegas 3, 6, 9, and 7 and vitamins C and E) and jojoba oil. Best of all, it’s free of parabens and other unwanted chemicals that have no place near your head. I found this to leave my hair soft and smooth. I loved the way my hair felt just after one use! This sample was just 0.7 oz I have very short hair so a quarter sized amount was enough. So I should be able to get 2 more uses out of it. Now even though my hair felt really soft and silky I don’t think I would pay $28 for 8 oz. I don’t think I will be buying this this sample is valued at about $2.35.

Davines LOVE Smoothing Shampoo – For Coarse/Frizzy Hair

This gentle shampoo is specially formulated to tame frizzed-out and tangle-prone hair. It’s an infusion of olive extract from Minuta olives grown in Messina, Italy it nourishes and enriches hair with fatty acids, vitamin E, and polyphenols. The first thing I noticed was that it really smelled GREAT! My hair is really curly, but very dry and damaged and after 1 use it felt like it stripped too much of my oils or something. I didn’t like the texture of my hair afterwards, it made it feel rough and drier than normal. If you used the shampoo you definitely need to follow up with their conditioner. I won’t be buying this shampoo this sample is valued at about $11.00.

 Davines LOVE Smoothing Conditioner -For Coarse/Frizzy Hair

The creamy concoction calms frizz and loosens tangles, making your whole hairstyling process a lot simpler. It’s formulated with olive extract from Minuta olives grown on a family farm in Messina, Italy, which infuses strands with fatty acids, vitamin E, and antioxidants. Along with trying the shampoo I liked the way the product smelled but I’m not going to purchase it. The shampoo felt very drying, and rough but the conditioner did make it super soft afterwards. Just didn’t cut it for me, and the price is really high for the results. I won’t be buying this conditioner this sample is valued at about $2.00.

ModelCo

ModelCo Lip Enhancer Illusion Lip Liner:

“Color outside the lines” is great as a life philosophy as ModelCo says. As an approach to lip color? Not so much. Keep your lipstick from wandering with this nourishing soft wax pencil. The neutral shade works with every lip color in your collection while making your lips look fuller and more defined. I just love this nude lip liner! I find it does enhance my lips making them look like the perfect shape. This is the best liner that actually stays on my lips as well as looking natural with a slight pinkish hue. This matched almost everything shade of lipstick I have worn and that it kept my lipstick from feathering. It’s worth paying $20 for the full size liner. I will be buying this in the future this sample is valued at about $10.00.

thisworks

This Works -Deep Sleep Pillow Spray:

This deep sleep pillow spray is packed with 100% pure essential oils, including calming lavender, patchouli, and chamomile all of which work together to lull us to sleep faster and help us wake up feeling more refreshed. A best-selling, natural sleep aid that will fragrance your bed and calm the nerves to help you see faster. I struggle with falling and staying asleep. This spray I would say that it worked. I noticed that my sleep was noticeably better, and I didn’t wake up as often through the night. But I will say that the smell is kinda of strong if you spray too much, so a little does go a long way. I will be buying this when it runs out this sample is valued at about $2.00.

AprilBBBlog1

I got this as a bonus lucky me for re-subscribing to Birchbox as a free gift.

Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Matte Eyes Mini

Mesmerizing eyes are so much more than mascara—and no one knows that better than the makers of this travel-friendly shadow kit. The eight must-have neutral matte shades can all be used as a liner, shadow, and brow definer, while two base shades provide the perfect blank canvas. Each of the 8 matte shades in this mini-matte collection is a multitasker—from stay-put shadows that double as liner to brow powders that also work as shadows. Can I say JACKPOT, I am in 😍💜 this is one awesome gift for renewing my subscription. I will be buying this when I’m done with it this full size palette is valued at about $25.00.

March Sephora Play Review

My March review of @sephora play 📦 box my favorite 💌 monthly subscriptions 📬 I pretty much loved all of it! This month’s theme “GLOW YOUR OWN WAY” 

clementines
@ateliercologneparis: Easy to wear, Atelier Cologne Absolute fragrances are concentrated at 15 percent pure perfume and designed to offer outstanding lasting power and character to Cologne lovers. The scent was #divineclementine perfumes/ 🤳🏻 colognes give me headaches so to be honest I didn’t smell it. The notes are of Clementine, Mandarin, Juniper Berries, Star Anise, Sichuan Pepper, Basilica, Vetiver, Sandalwood, Cypress more of a fruity, green, sweet.

glamg
@glamglow: A hydrating, super-charged cream with iridescent illuminating pearl particles to blur, reflect, and enhance your complexion for an instant luminous finish.  Best solutions for – Dryness – Dullness and uneven texture #glowstarter illuminating moisturizer I 😍 loved it!!!

benefitw
@benefitcosmetics: Bestselling highlighter defines facial features with a luminous, soft-focus sheen and an easy-to-apply cream-to-powder formula. Watt’s Up! Cream-to-powder highlighter I really liked I’m not into highlighters but this is perfect for a 💃 night out on the town.

josiem
@josiemarancosmetics: Game-changing makeup and skin care hybrid primes and finishes with a whipped formula for a luminous, ethereal effect. Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm was perfect I used before I applied any type of makeup and it gave me a soft feel.

udecay
@urbandecaycosmetics: A 24-hour wear, nude eye shadow primer that ensures vibrant, crease-free wear. This primer keeps your eye shadow crease-free while making color more vibrant and providing a smoother application. There’s no need to review since I live and breathe urban decay products. BUT… I love this, I have oily eye lids this helps with eye shadows, and my eye liners.

verb@verbproducts: A vanishing daily restorative that revitalizes hair from roots to ends. Key benefits: – Treats damaged hair – Controls frizz – Adds shine. The ghost oil felt nice, but it’s more for straight hair, versus my curly  mess.

blogsephora
All in all this was a 2nd good box, the waiting list was so well worth it for $10 a month. Are you signed up? Did you get the same stuff?? Comment below and let me know!

March Ipsy Glambag Review

I know I am so late, I posted it on my Instagram but I have been really busy with a new job, so I’m just now catching up.

Ipsymar

INT Cosmetics Eyeshadow; Color: Goddess Gold The formula is crazy pigmented, so a little goes a long way. You can also use it as a highlighter just dabbed on the inner corners of your eyes or along cheekbones. Nothing special about this eye shadow looks just like the other colors I get from Ipsy just had a slight rose color to it, but barely noticeable. One good thing you can use it as a highlighter as well.

ipsy05

Tarte Cosmetics Tarteist™ Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint; Color: Delish -Vegan-friendly, a precision applicator makes it easy to apply. Velvet matte is perfect neither too matte nor too glossy. Add an extra coat changes the look and pumps up the color dramatically. I really love this matte lip paint, it was perfect, not glossy at all, and it wasn’t dry or extra matte looking at all. The color was also perfect!

ipsy06

ModelCo Eye Define Retractable Crayon Liner; Color: Black -This inky, jet black formula glides on gorgeously and ends up with perfect lines every time—no tugging or dragging. This long-wearing, water-resistant formula didn’t smudge, budge, or transfer. Okay this eyeliner I must say it was not smooth going on, it was dry and I had to warm it up slightly to get it to go on smoothly. It does stay put, and won’t smudge till a certain extent. It wasn’t until the end of the day that I noticed it starting to run in the corners a little 

ipsy03

PÜR Cosmetics Disappearing Ink 4-in-1 Concealer; Color: Medium -This has a unique “Diamond Complex” to reflect light away from imperfections. Also full of good-for-your-skin ingredients. There’s no need for multiple concealers; this is equally as good at hiding dark circles, pimples, spots, you name it. This was okay it wasn’t better that It cosmetics illuminator but it also wasn’t worse. I would say that it was maybe a step under it, only because I could still see my dark circles slightly versus the one from It Cosmetics.

Infusium Infusium Repair + Renew Smoothing Serum with Argan Oil + Keratin; Argan oil hydrates and smooths. A quick science lesson: Hair is largely made of a protein called keratin, and this serum contains lots of it (to help strengthen hair). I’ve noticed a huge difference in my hair, I am in love. They have been making my curls so much softer, and manageable.   

Ipsymar4

So this month I liked my Glambag, the 4 in 1 concealer was ok I love trying out concealers to see which one works best. The Infusium repair and renew serum it’s too early to tell whether or not it’s doing any difference but only time will tell. I did love the Matte lip color it was perfect, not too glossy or dry. The eye shadow seems to match almost like the others I have received, and the eyeliner yes it does stay put smudges just a tad bit after a long day at work. BUT it doesn’t slide on smoothly like it says it does.

Ipsy February Review

Luna By Luna Cosmetics Highlighter: Color; Calypso -Calypso is a baked highlighter with purple and grey undertones. The pale lavender shade flatters any and every skin tone and has a creamy and velvety texture. (I really liked this highlighter, I applied it to my eyelids, the middle of my lips and the apple of my cheeks, LOL and it gave me that nice glowy look. I did add some highlighter on my browbone, and on the bridge of my nose to make it appear more narrow, and on each side of my nostrails to make it appear brighter.)

Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish: Color; I Give Good Tweet Robin’s Egg Blue -Going above and beyond much of the competition, these super shiny formulas are 10-free. (Yes, 10!) Equally fab, the brand is vegan and cruelty-free. Plus all the shade names will make you LOL. I Give Good Tweet, a robin’s egg blue, is fresh and fun, no matter the season or the occasion. (This polish was very good and lasted a few days before any signs of fading. The color was sheer looking but you can apply an extra coat or two if you don’t like it sheer. The blue is not my color, I didn’t like it but I did like the polish. Will use my 30% code and get my fav color purple.)

blogipsy1

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination™ Anti-Aging Concealer: Color: Neutral Medium –Works well covering up complexion imperfections and hiding dark circles. It’s full-coverage and a completely waterproof formula, a must-have for early mornings or late nights. (O… M… G… This was magic for me, it was very thick and creamy a little hard to blend in at first. But then realize that applying a few tiny dots made it a lot easier to blend I am definitely going out and buying this. As you will notice in my picture below I separated it so you can see it more, one side I have the concealer, of course, I have foundation, primer, etc and on the other side no concealer or foundation. Also, it was hard to just put lipstick on one side of my lips so I put them on both, lol.)

blogipsy

Hikari Cosmetics Cream Pigment Eye Shadow: Color; Latte -High pigment, easy to blend, long-lasting eye shadow. Brush it on for a bold metallic shadow, swipe on with your fingertips for a messier smoky look, or use a liner brush and create a gleaming cat eye. (I loved this color on my skin it was perfect and just a tiny bit will make your eye dazzle. One the left side I didn’t put a lot and blended it with a light shade not to make it so deep, and on the right side I just put on eyeshadow seeing how deep and rich you can make it look this Latte color look.) 

BeFine Food Skin Care Gentle Face Cleanser: This brand’s formulas are completely vegan and packed with good-for-your-skin, natural ingredients: Peppermint Oil, Leaf Extract, Oat Bran Extract, Rice Bran Proteins, Sugar Cane Extract, and Wheat Amino Acids. (This felt so good on my face, and the peppermint was tingling so it was refreshing I liked it a lot.)

blogipsy3

OK, SOOOOOOO Ipsy heard my cries, lol and gave me my IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination™ Anti-Aging Concealer!!! YAY, I complained about it on my last review for my January glam bag.  This bag was pretty decent, the Hikari eyeshadow was a little on the cheap side was hoping for a much bigger sample, but hey a girl can’t complain right lol. Now the polish not my cup of tea, I would of prefer the Latte hands down this robin’s egg blue, is not for me. But I pretty much like everything else I got!
