Maybelline Superstay Better Skin foundation Review* Influenster

 I quit using liquid foundation some time ago. It felt as if I was wearing a masque and the break outs where hideous, no matter the brand. Not to mention this hot Alabama weather, just melts off my makeup. I finally gave up and decide just to spot conceal trouble areas, even though this is not what I wanted to do. I wanted even skin color. I wanted a dewy appearance. Who doesn't right?

When I was selected by Influenster I was excited to try for the simple fact that it said better skin. So I set out to take the #BetterSkinChallenge
I received this in exchange for my unbiased review
WEEK 1:First, thing that I noticed was the pump dispenser. I love these feature because it seems to add just the perfect amount to your hand. It blended very well with no creasing or lines. However, I fill that this shade (porcelain) was just a tad to light for my complexion. I just added a light bronzer to it to fix the minor difference. It has a very light, almost unnoticeable smell. But my favorite thing was that within minutes of using it did not feel as if I had anything on. 

WEEK 2: Not a break out yet, YES!!! I have some how managed to remember to use this daily , which posed a challenge in itself since I used to only use mineral foundation. I really want to know if this is different from the rest and so far yes it is. It is even passed the all day staying power

WEEK 3: Well I broke out along my hair line, but this could be due to the unsightly visitor that comes once a month. However, with that said, overall I like this. Great staying power, no masque feeling, and affordable. Will I buy this again? Probably not. Only because I prefer the mineral brand I use and I know what they put in it. With Maybelline I am not not sure and plan on looking further into the ingredients they use. Probably should have already done so. If you like a liquid foundation, I do say TRY IT. It has staying power like I have never experienced.

Macee Leigh Review *The Face Lift Cloth

        Face Lift Cloth      

Who doesn't love the convenience of disposable wipes?
 I was addicted to them. They just took entirely to many to get off my makeup. Even the next day I see some eyeliner that didn't come off. When I seen Macee Leigh had come out with a cloth that removed it with just water, of course I was skeptically. After doing the math I seen that it was actually cheaper to use. SO what was left to do? Try it !!!
 Now after months of using this, my overall skin appearance has changed, my adult acne is no longer the issue it was, and it even diminishes my cellulite and stretch marks. ( individual results vary). For only $16, this is a steal. I won't use anything else. Bye bye harsh chemicals & disposable wipes.
 Try it today! Your face will thank you.

Ombre Nail Look Tutorial and Free Welcome Box Offer from Julep

****this post contains affiliate links. ***

Fall in to Ombre tutorial
Ombre isn’t a new trend–we’ve been seeing it for years, on everything from clothing to nail art to hair. And yet, its popularity still isn’t fading! Why? Probably because ombre is so fun to create and so easy to DIY. Julep has shared a new ombre nail art tutorial that uses colors from their 'Fall Into Ombre' Welcome Box - FREE when you join Julep Maven.


Fall in to Ombre tutorial
                                                                 Let's get started!
1. Choose three polishes that blend well together, spanning from dark to light. Not sure what to pick? You can’t go wrong with a deep, opaque color, a lighter shade of the same color, and white. Polish your nails with your darkest color. Allow them to dry.

2. Pour two small dollops of your medium and light colors on a smooth surface (like a piece of wax paper). The two dollops together should be about two-thirds the length of your nails. Use a toothpick or orangewood stick to swirl them together slightly so they mix in the middle, forming a gradient.

3. Dip the edge of a cosmetic sponge directly into your dollops of nail polish then align the sponge so that the lightest color is at the tip of your nail. Press the polish onto your nails with the sponge, dabbing and repeating until you achieve the desired effect. This doesn’t have to be precise!

4. Clean up the edges with our polish corrector pen or a thin brush dipped in polish remover. Finish with a top coat. Voilà!
Get the colors used in this look for FREE when you join Julep Maven, the subscription beauty box program. As a Julep Maven you’ll receive a box of brand-new, full sized nail color and beauty products each month – and you deserve it!
  • Julep Maven is affordable. Every month you get more than $40 of full-size products for just $24.99 per month (tip - prepay for three months at a time and save $15).

Gel Nail System Review: Jamberry TRŪSHINE

Will Trūshine has taken Jamberry to a new level?

Jamberry trushine
I couldn't resist I had to order.
Long awaited and finally went live as of September 1.
When it arrived I couldn't hardly contain myself.  Nails prepped and waiting as I stalked the tracking.
The instruction are included and are basically fool proof (simple process)

How to apply


  1. *After washing your hands and prepping your nails; pushing back your cuticles, wipe over your nails with the prep wipe.(included).
  2. *Apply a light coat the base coat (included) and then place under the led light for 45 seconds (light cuts off automatically) Be sure to wipe the excess off the sides to prevent it from cracking/lifting later and burning.
  3. *Apply the color and set again under the led for 45 secs (be sure to remove the excess off the sides of your nails each time before placing under the light ) Do the same with the second coat of color.
  4. *Apply the top coat (clear polish and included) and set under the light for 45 seconds.
  5. Wipe down again with the prep wipe to remove the stickiness/tackiness.
                    BAM!!!
 Salon nails done in in the privacy of home

My conclusion:

The automatic shut off of the LED lamp makes it easy to know when your time is up. Which I think is an awesome feature. The step by step instruction are easy to understand and make applying simply for even the amateur of users.  Just be sure to get the excess of the sides of your nails or it will create a lift and chipping (and a heating/burning on the skin) While it is a good chunk of money in buying at first, if you do the math, it saves you money in the long run. ( based on the average of a salon goer)
Removing was a little weird. They come with this little nail packets that have a sticky backside that you stick together so that they stay on your nails. Soak for 10 minutes and gently take your orange stick and it flakes off no problem. When you take your nail out, you will think it didn't work, I THOUGHT THAT TOO.

High quality and long lasting. Money well spent.



Be sure to check out Jamberry's YouTube video on how to apply.
