Review: L’Oreal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream

Review: L’Oreal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream
If you’re new to “BB Creams”, don’t let the name scare you it’s simply stands for an all-in-one “Beauty Balm” . A product that works as moisturizer and/or skin treatment, primer and foundation all in one tube. The trend of BB Creams started in Asia and over the last year have gained popularity in the US. 

This all-in-one beauty solution primes, corrects, hydrates and perfects, while resulting in a beautiful bare skinned look. The secret to L’Oreal’s Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream Meet is the Beautifying Beads (see photo adove); encapsulated pigments infused in an ultra-light lotion with antioxidants Vitamins C&E. This multi-tasking skin beautifier delivers 4 beautifying actions in 1: hydrates, corrects, evens and perfects. Instantly transforms to your perfect shade for a flawless, bare skin finish. Over time, leaving you more beautiful skin.

With the L’Oreal Paris BB Cream I can  skip my normal facial moisturizer and my face feels hydrated all day. It leaves a nice matte, yet natural, look to the skin, without feeling heavy or looking cakey. The product goes on white, but as you blend the beads are broken and pigment is released creating your own perfect shade. The cream provided and natural evening out of my skin leaving it perfected but still natural looking. I  would put it in a  light-to-medium category,  but the formula is build able if you need a bit extra coverage.

Magic Skin Beautifier comes in four shades to match a multitude of skin colors. I use Medium, which suits my self- tan well. Choose from Fair, Light, Medium and Deep.

L’Oréal Paris Magic BB Cream retails for $10.95 for 1 fl oz. It is available in four shades and is sold at mass food and drug retailers nationwide. Click here to find out more.

Elizabeth Arden Prevage Lash and Brow Enhancing Serum Review -Winner Annouced!

What is Elizabeth Arden Prevage?
Prevage Lash and brow enhancing serum is a clinically tested serum that has been proven to improve the length, thickness and fullness of lashes in 100% of women in only two weeks! And it’s also been clinically proven to provide a 40% improvement in the appearance, length, thickness and density of lashes in four weeks!

Prevage also treats lash and brow breakage, brittleness and loss due to aging, lack of nutrients and vitamins, and environmental threats. It is very gentle on your skin and eyes, yet still quite effective.

How do you use Elizabeth Arden Prevage lash and brow enhancing serum?
Prevage Lash and brow enhancing serum comes in a tube  similar to liquid eyeliner.  Apply at night before bed after removing your makeup.

Brush the serum across your eyelid like you are applying eye liner. You start from the inside and slide gently across the base of your eyelashes towards the outside of your eyes. Then repeat for the second eye. If you are looking to improve your eyebrows as well, you simply apply it where your eyebrows need attention.

Use Prevage Lash and Brow Serum every night until you are satisfied with your lashes. Once you have obtained your desired results, maintain the look by using the serum 3 to 4 times a week.

Before                                                                      After

Does it work?
The clinical results in 100% of women who tried the serum found their lashes were thicker and longer!

My mom has been begging to try a lash enhancer so I let her be my guinea pig. She has lost both length and fullness in her lashes and was desperate for a little help. After using it for just under two weeks she said she can definitely see and improvement in the length and they are starting to appear more full. She has also noticed an improvement in the texture and said they are much softer. She said you can really tell how much they have improved with mascara on. Definitely a good buy if you are looking to enhance your lashes and brows.

Prevage lash and brown enhancing serum will be releasing into department stores nationwide and on ElizabethArden.com the beginning of October. It will come in a .12 fl oz container and retail for $98.00.

Emilie M Handbag Review

I was recently given the opportunity to review a Emilie M handbag. I am new to the  line but really loved all the choices,  so choosing just one was hard but I finally settled on the Maddox Double Shoulder in Red.

I loved how soft and supple my new Emilie M handbag was and that it’s and animal friendly product. The style is classic enough to  carry everyday or dress it up for a night out. My handbag is incredibly roomy and I love all the zippered compartments. I am always losing things in my purse and this made it really easy to organize all my stuff.  A beautiful bag that is not only well made but is designed to keep your items organized and easy to access.

Cool Down with Arbor Mist Frozen Cocktails!

 

As a member of SheSpeaks, I was chosen to participate in this review for Arbor Mist.

I am new to the drink pouches and was really excited to give these a try. These are available in most grocery stores and run $1.99 per pouch. I love wine but when its really hot I crave something cool and icy and the Arbor Mist Frozen Cocktails are perfect! We hit the beach for the long weekend and I pulled these from the freezer and we were able to enjoy ice cold, frozen cocktails on the sand! Heaven!

Just toss them in the freezer for about 5 hours then squeeze to loosen and pour the slushy mixture into your glass and enjoy! The mixture is a fine consistency which you can eat with a spoon or straw. I like to let mine sit for a minute or two so its easier to drink. They are a little on the sweet side, I hope they add a low sugar option but for a cool treat on a hot day they are perfection.

My favorite the Blackberry Merlot!

Arbor Mist Frozen Wine Cocktails are a new way to enjoy great-tasting wine with a splash of fruit, frozen! Great for a backyard party, pool day, barbecue or casual get-together with friends and family – simply freeze, squeeze and enjoy. Arbor Mist Frozen Wine Cocktails require no mixing of ingredients, ice or blenders. Simply place the liquid pouch in the freezer for five hours, gently massage, tear open the top, squeeze to pour into a glass and enjoy a smooth frozen wine cocktail with all the great taste and same alcohol level as Arbor Mist Wines.

I was sent 2 each of the three flavors that Arbor Mist offers:
Blackberry Merlot
Bursting with aromas of ripe blackberries and fresh guava, this naturally flavored frozen Merlot adds a new twist to the classic Arbor Mist wine. This was the first one I tried…delicious! It was very thick and sweet.
Strawberry White Zinfandel
Strawberry White Zinfandel is redefined in this new spin on an Arbor Mist classic. Aromas of fresh-picked strawberries create an enticing bouquet that integrates perfectly with this well-balanced and smooth, naturally flavored frozen wine. I love strawberry drinks, this one was sweet too and tasted fruity.
White Pear Pinot Grigio
Refreshingly smooth, this frozen wine has a taste that is rich with natural flavors of ripe pear and hints of apple and citrus.
