The above look is a workday face of the day. Read on for what I used!………..

Spring is here and with it come new drugstore products! The drugstore lines have all really stepped up to the high-end plate and cranked out tons of new, innovative, items!

I have waited until now to review this because, honestly, I’ve been using it everyday and had to pull it out of my bag to take pictures and swatches. I love this bronzer – it is my new holy grail bronzer y’all! Read on for more…..

I’m so excited about this y’all! I got this razor in my Influenster Voxbox and was thrilled! At the time I received it, the razor wasn’t yet released. I was so excited to get a chance to try it first! I’ve been a little unsatisfied with my current razor, so this was perfect timing for me.

KISS Nail Dress Packaging

The nail applique trend is pretty big right now; rightly so, the appliques are probably the easiest way to get great looking nails effortlessly. Before trying this product, the only experience I had with these were via the Sally Hansen nail polish strips. The two products are similar but definitely not the same. I received this product via the Influenster Voxbox although I do have other designs I purchased on my own. The following is a review of these strips…..

Revlon Sculpting Blush Palette in Berry, Outside Packaging

Another Revlon Review! Boy, do I love this brand! This product is part of the new line of photoready products hitting the shelves for spring of 2012. This sculpting palette comes in four shades and each includes a bronzer, blush and highlighter. The idea of the palette is that it does your countouring, blush, and highlighting within the one palette. Read on to see what I thought…….

Almay Intense I-Color Shadow Stick Review and Swatches

Almay intense i-color shadow sticks in blue and hazel eyes

Almay is kicking out some really awesome stuff lately! It isn’t a brand I’ve typically been drawn to, but with the new releases, I’m lovin’ the company! One of their new spring products are these shadow sticks. They are a cream shadow in twist up form and Almay claims they are ‘crease proof.’ They are also rumored to be a dupe for the MAC shade sticks. I can’t speak to that, since I haven’t tried the MAC, but as a cream shadow lover, I think these are great! Read on for more….

I have a bling-tastic manicure for y’all today! I just bought Sally Hansen Xtreme wear in Celeb City on a great CVS sale. This polish is so pretty – it is a true silver foil polish that looks both bright, metallic, and shiny on the nails! Love! I went to paint my nails with this color last night and realized a colorful glitter with silver accents would look fab on top of the foil. So, I chose one of the new polishes from the Sally Hansen Gem Crush line in Razzle Dazzler. I love this manicure so much and it’s perfect if you want a sparkly, glittery, blingy manicure!
