Here is what I received: Lord & Berry #1001 color black silk. It was very small, which was disappointing. I love the color black and don't use other color eye liner often so the color choice was great. It clumped as I glided it across my eyelids which was frustrating but sharpened good. But after a few sharps it was nearly gone. Next, I received Urban Decay Perversion mascara.(black). I love, love this. The length it extended my eyelashes where amazing and clumping was minimal. My eyelashes where even thicker looking. YAY. Again, this was small in size and is now gone. Thirdly, was Jersey Shore Sun anti-age lip conditioner. To me it felt a little oily, but I love that it is organic. The smell was a smell that I often smell with green products. It is not that it stinks but a smell that most aren't use to. My first green products I could not decide if i liked it or not. It grew on me but I feel better knowing I am doing my part to make the world a little better. Next, was Paula's Choice Clear ultra light daily mattifying fluid. It has a SPF of 30 plus and it moisturizes. It helped with my oily skin. I was a little skeptical to try this. I received Paula's Choice free as a result of being a Bzz agent, I did have the results that everyone was reporting. But it has definitely helped with my oily skin and that I am very happy about. Not to mention that it is anti-aging. Which is a concern as I am turning 34 tomorrow. Lastly, I got Costal scents Forever Blush. It was to colors in one little compact. I am sad to report that i can not give my opinion on this because I don't wear blush and gave it away. It was a pretty coral color and another pinkish color. Absolutely beautiful colors, just not for me.  Each product comes with a code for different percentage off if you want to buy more. I was not to pleased with this bag. However, this is the first time. I already got this months bag and I am beyond excited.

     The season is gradually creeping up fast and those family get togethers are upon us. What to wear? What to wear? Natural we want to look our best but if you are anything like me, the focus is really on the kiddos. But, why spend a lot when they just out grow them fast?  Am I right? Which lead me to Crazy 8.

Limelight Review

As the majority of my readers know, I am friends with many amazing direct sellers.  From Tupperware to bags, to natural products, to self-defense, the direct seller's community is rapidly growing in many areas of needs. When I heard there was another makeup company, I was excited to see what would set them apart from the rest.
Upon looking at the site, I was intrigued and disappointed. I loved the website and their colors (truly perked my interest), but the prices were not budget friendly for me. Let's face it, I always feel guilty about spending money on me but if it's cheaper I feel less guilty. Make sense?  I have tested and reviewed many products over the years and naturally, I am always kinda skeptical since so many claim results but far and few provide them. If they do they take forever to show and by then I have lost interest.

Let me back up a tad and tell you about what lead me to my discovery. If you have ever dealt with someone in direct sells or do that line of wor…

Freebie Sites and their breakdown
  I often get people asking where do I get my freebies and how to do these sites work. I thought why not give those a guide to go by.
