New Eyeshadow 101 and a 15% Off Code from Julep

Julep’s new Crème-to-Powder Eyeshadow Stick, Eyeshadow 101, is your next go-to product for an effortless bold eye. Eyeshadow 101 features a retractable eyeshadow stick on one end and a smudger on the other and comes in six must-have shades.
Eyeshadow 101
Here are a few tips that will get you ready for that close up:
  • While the color is freshly applied and still creamy, smudge away; once the color is set after it dries, smudging is less effective–because the formula sets and stays! (P.S. It’s actually waterproof, another bonus!)
  • More smudgy = more smolder-y. starting from the outer corner, work your way inward along the lower lash line.
  • Use Eyeshadow 101 for highlighting and contouring as well as for bold eyes. We like using champagne shimmer to highlight the browbone and inner corners of the eyes to feign a good night’s sleep (good morning, gorgeous!) for brightening up the face.
  • Top off your look with some mascara and you’re ready to head out the door!
Eyeshadow 101

JAMBERRY Review *Nail Wraps

To use or not to use?

I was first introduced to these some time ago, my first thought was wow they have some cute designs. But immediately I thought about my nails are not shaped right for glue on nails ( always have to buy two packs to do my hands), would these be the same? No way I can fathom spending $30 (two sheets of Jams) to do my nails, when I can do them cheaper.

   I attend a lot of Facebook parties and seen one that was giving free samples to the attendees. Here's was my chance to try them without having to spend the money and them not working.  I received a sample sheet of accent nail wraps with about 4 different choices, like expected they did not fit. (minus one I received later that fit on my pinky finger) I got a lot of bubbles and not matter what I did, it just WASN'T working for me. I ended up getting really frustrated with them and said to myself "never again will I try this"
        Long story short I have a few close friends who do this business for a living. I was determined to get the same results as they were getting, since I know that they were actually showing me their nails and they got great results made me determined to get those results.

What do you get when you order?

  When you order you receive what they call a full sheet. Which is suppose to be able to get 2 mani's and 2 pedi's. This sheet DOES NOT work for me the way that it does most. My nails are big in size and 3 of my nails are actually the same size. But here's how it is suppose to be for the average nails. (smaller nails can get more also)

Common issues 
  1. lifting
  2. falling off
  3. size issues
  4. method of applying
  5. Bubbles

The Solutions 

After many videos and suggestions, I have gotten a lot better with them. I now use scotch tape to outline my nails and place on the nail wraps and cut them to fit (cutting is aggravating since I shake). So this helps with the size issue.

Next thing that I thought might be an issue was the fact that I was trying the cold method (see YouTube) and the hair dryer. Although they say this will work, I realized it was a issue for me (these need heat that I have only found to work with the Jamberry heater) They now stay longer like they state they do. This graphic helped me with proper times of heat. It will help keep them on longer. BE SURE TO APPLYING LOTS OF PRESSURE when placing them on the nail.

       Another issue, I also found that my cuticles and the sides of my skin was preventing them to stick. Once any skin touches the wrap, your basically screwed. I have to push the sides and cuticles WAY back, which return over the suggested gap they tell you to leave. ( my ocd does not like that) But it isn't noticeable to others. 

Final Thoughts

 It really depends on how bad you want them to work.  This requires PATIENCEPRACTICE, and a lot of time. If you have trouble finding glue on nails to fit you, I recommend doing the tape method I mentioned above with these. I still get some bubbles but you can take the flat end of the tweezers (heated) and smooth them out. The trick is a lot of pressure and the right amount of time when heating.  You can get a weeks wear with these, if not longer. I just always cant wait past a week. I had given up before but now they overflow in my cabinets. LOVE THEM.

Valid: Now - 10/31

While pet costumes are indeed adorable, keep in mind that not every pet will do well in a costume. For some pets, costumes can even be dangerous. Here are a few tips to keep your pet safe this Halloween:
  • Ensure that the costume allows your pet to move freely.
  • Avoid anything with elastic straps that go under the chin or around the neck. If your pet can't make noise (meowing, barking, etc.), it may be because the costume is interfering with your pet’s ability to breathe.
  • Make sure the costume isn't annoying, unsafe, or will constrict the animals ability to move or hear.
  • Never leave any animal unattended in a costume!
  • If you plan on having your pet wear a costume, consider helping it get accustomed to the costume by putting it on them for a few minutes at a time over the course of several days.
  • Take a close look at your pet’s costume and make sure it does not have small, dangling or easily chewed-off pieces that your pet could choke on. Also, ill-fitting outfits can get twisted on external objects or your pet, leading to injury.
  • If your pet seems distressed, allergic or shows abnormal behavior while in the costume, consider letting him go au naturale or donning a festive bandana.

With all that said, here are a few costumes that might delight both you and your pet!

Macee Leigh New Products Alert

I am excited to announce these new products. Mostly because I am a pamper person.  Many of my customers had asked me about these and FINALLY I can say "Yes ma'am we sure do carry them." As you know our convention was last weekend in Nashville, Tennessee, we got to try these before they went live and this girl could not quit talking about it.
So what are they, right??

I can't begin to accurately describe the luxurious feel you get when using these. I am so not a bath person. But the minute I returned home from convention, I could not resist. The aroma called my name the whole way home. 
This combination of bubble bath ( yes you read right) and the benefits of a sea salt bath had my skin feeling as soft as a baby. I literally dozed off in the tub a time of two until my fiance said "are you ever getting out." I then opened my eyes and still seen bubbles. Could I have really been in there that long? The bubbles were still there. As my children say: it's not time to get out till the bubbles are gone. These have now turned into my foot soak since my time is so hectic. I can soak my feet and read bedtime stories, like a boss. Love & relaxation. You should definitely try it!

Next awesome new product we have is Nourishing Body Lotion.
At convention the pumpkin scent was in my goodie bag, but I traded for the Caramel Apple. (shhh)
I just couldn't resist this amazing fall scent. It reminded be a my grandmothers house on the holidays. We were comical when they showed us these, well maybe it was just me. I smelled each one and couldn't decide which is my favorite. Especially since the Love smelled just like our love potion soy pebbles and soap. I have been wanting them to produce a lotion like this. Ah my prayers have been answered.
This is a very light consistency which blends easily and to me has a cooling sensation when I put it on. The scent stays with you all day and soothed my drying elbows. ( thanks to the new cold thats came upon us)

Lastly, and my absolute favorite is the Save Face masque.

Oh me , oh my!! I could go on and on about this masque. Masks are one of my beauty weaknesses.  I have to say, I was a little worried about this one when I pulled it of our goodie bag. BUT here's why: I am a huge scent person, this has none. I was then explained as to why it didn't. Our goal is to make products that sensitive skin people can use so I am just out off luck with a scented mask.
When I put it on I was not expecting it to be this AMAZING. It only takes 5 minutes to detoxify your face and that fact that it gentle enough to use everyday.( which I have been doing) This has now become my NEW favorite. Just announced it is on sale till October 11th.

October Breast Cancer Awareness Month - Think #Pink

 While I haven't had any experience with this nor have I had anyone close to me deal with this issue, I still want to bring awareness to this amazing cause. Since I escaped a domestic violence situation a few years ago, I have made it my duty to actively uplift and empower woman.

Glamulet is just one of the amazing companies that are supporting this cause this month. They are donating 50% of this months sales, isn't that amazing? The next logical question would be, what is Glamulet right? They are a jewelry brand that specializes in charms, in which they design, manufacturer, and sell.

  Please take a few minutes to watch this amazing video and take the time to help spread awareness.

If you have suffered from breast cancer or have had a loved one deal with this, please share your stories in the comments. Give your loved one a shout out and always let them know they are important everyday. As you know, I have lost a lot to death this past month and it still is a very vivid pain. (not to cancer)
                                                     Will you join me?
