Westmore Beauty Lasting Effects Brow Gel

CYMERA_20160222_143153

As I age my eyebrows seem to get more and more sparse. Along with being more careful to not over tweeze I am always looking for a good eyebrow product. I have been using the Westmore Beauty Lasting Effects Brow Gel and I love it. Easy to use even with lighter hair and skin without looking like I drew them on. I love the gel formula, its very buildable and the color last for 1-2 days.

You pop off the top and release the brow brush and just a little dip into the bottom pot and start brushing through your brows. The gel formula makes it very easy to build the color to your desired level and if you make a mistake just wipe it clear before the gel dries. One you have the color and shape just right you’re all done. This long wearing formula lasts up to 2 days! I love how quick and easy it is and my brows look great all day and into the next.

If you are in the market for a new eyebrow pencil or gel I really recommend this set, great price and you need so little it will last and last. Check out below to see the before and after.

Westmore Beauty Lasting Effects Brow Gel $28
Transform your appearance dramatically with this easy, one-step solution for shaping 3-dimensional, natural looking brows. The unique gel formula is easy to apply with the pro brow brush and is transfer-resistant, budge-proof and waterproof. A blend of hair-like fibers combined with specially treated pigments fasten onto skin and hair, giving you the full, youthful eyebrows that are all the rage in Hollywood.

Apply over clean, dry brows. Dip, don’t dunk, the Brow Perfector Brush into the container and wipe off excess product on the side. Always start with less and build as needed. Start by filling in gaps using the pointed end of the brush with short, feather-like strokes. Apply in the direction of hair growth. For a fuller brow look, apply over entire brow area, not only your sparse areas. To extend your brow line, use the pointed end of the brush and apply in long, even strokes. Once you have achieved desired coverage and shape, while product is still wet, use the Spoolie Brow Perfector Brush to groom and further distribute product using upward and outward strokes. If you find you have missed a spot or need deeper coverage, reapply the brow gel and groom again.

Lasting Effects One-Step Brow Gel is formulated with Permafix Technology and Brow Fiber Complex, which help create the appearance of natural-looking brows that lasts for days. The blend of hair-like fibers and specially treated pigments are designed to fasten onto skin and hair, creating transfer-proof and budge-proof coverage. Application has never been easier, thanks to the Spoolie Brow Perfector Brush for filling and defining.

CYMERA_20160212_140717

After having insanely thick hair most of my life which always seemed to make cute hairstyles exhausting and hard to maintain. Now my hair is getting a bit thinner and of course I miss all that volume. With color treating and heat styling my fine hair can get very limp, lack luster and frizzy.

Enter the new dynamic duo from Hair La Vie. With 21 active ingredients this powerhouse duo fights hair loss, damage, dry scalp and frizz! I love that it doesn’t leave any build up in my hair and I’m left with soft, easy to comb hair. After just the first few days my hair is feeling smoother and more hydrated,and the frizz is long go. It smells fantastic, and I love how much healthier my hair looks and feels.

It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation: Flawless Skin in 30 Seconds

a255578_celebration_foundation_medium_wo_swatch

Winter for me means pale, spotty face a mixture of paper white skin and redness from blemishes and environmental irritants. The last few weeks I just couldn’t get my makeup right my summer shades were too dark and my winter shades didn’t hide the ruddy undertone of my skin. I heard about IT Cosmetics Celebration Foundation and had to check it out.

Celebration Foundation comes in four shades from Fair to Rich, in the photo below I am wearing medium-beige. My skin below on the left had only moisturizer and eye makeup. I used the enclosed puff and applied one thin coat across my face of the Celebration Foundation. First thing I noticed was so silky and light it felt, it glided right across my skin and felt amazing on my skin and the product is so light it doesn’t look or feel like foundation.

Next step was a side by side comparison, and with that I was hooked. I have had a pesky blemish on my face for weeks that is fading but so slowly I spend all day reapplying concealer to mask the redness. And as you can see on the right my blemish disappeared under just one swipe of Celebration Foundation. Not only did it make my blemishes vanish it made my crazy big pores disappear and evened out my rudy, shiny undertone. I have to say my skin really did go from winter blah to perfect in 30 seconds. And now 6 hours later the foundation is still going strong and my skin looks amazing. I am so glad to have found this and am going to start using it with a brush to get even smoother coverage. If you have been struggling to find the right foundation check out It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation, it takes your skin from blah to flawless faster than you can say Celebration Foundation.

Hydrate, Protect and Revive with Hair La Vie “Revive” Deep Hydration Masque

CYMERA_20160120_144813

Winter wind and cold can be havoc on hair. My natural curls, and thin hair can get so dry and lackluster this time of year it was time to do a little deep treatment. Safe for my color treated hair the Hair La Vie Revive mask moisturizes my scalp and hair! Love any product that multitasks.

A base of keratin and bamboo extra not only moisturize but strengthen each strand of hair. The mask itself is rich and whipped looks a bit like whipped butter or frosting.  The mixture of coconut and argan oil make this masque smell amazingly decadent. I apply a dollop and work through my hair and leave on for 5 minutes in shower before rinsing. And once a month I like to do a deep treatment and apply the masque and then cover it with plastic and leave it for 30-40 minutes and let the heat help it penetrate deep into my strands.

This mask has not only repaired some dry ugly ends but also left my hair vibrant, shiny and feeling as bouncy as a vidal sasson commercial circa the 90’s. So take a little time for yourself and take some at home spa time a face mask, and the amazing Revive masque maybe a glass of wine and the Bachelor..what more can a girl need?
