VALENTINE'S DAY CRUSHES <3

VALENTINE'S DAY CRUSHES <3

Valentines day is around the corner! I have some product suggestions you’re going to love that are fun, flirty, and fit the spirit of the holiday. For those of you still on the hunt for a crush, you came to the right place. For those of you who already have crushes, what’s a few more?  Here are three products to crush on this Valentine’s Day: 

FUN: Big Sexy Hair Spray

Valentine’s Day is all about having fun/being confident and so is Big Sexy Hair Spray. It really helps boost your roots to give you lasting volume for a big date or a night out with your girls. Have some fun this Valentine’s Day, and let your hair down (literally and metaphorically speaking) with a product that add just the right pop to your hair! 

FLIRTY: Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy

I may have strained away from Juicy in my closet (RIP Juicy Velour Track suit-we had a good run), but it will always have a place in my bathroom as my go-to fragrance. Juicy Couture’s Viva la Juicy is a year round favorite of mine, BUT specifically for those of you on a man hunt this Valentine’s Day, get this product! There’s something about Viva la Juicy that makes guy’s go crazy. What I really love about the scent is that it’s not TOO strong but potent enough to grab someone’s attention. Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself. Next time you’re at Sephora or a department store, spray it on your skin and clothes. You may end up finding your next signature scent!

FIT: Benefit Benetint

There’s no other product more fit for Vday than Benefit’s Benetint. I’ve been a fan of this product for years. Not only can you use it to add a rosy glow to your cheekbones, but it has dual purpose as a lip stain. What’s so great about this? It’s water, and might I add, kiss proof (you’re welcome to all the boys out there)! One tip to note about this product is that being that it is a stain, you need to react to it quickly once applying. Dab it on the desired part of your face and blend. This product is great for those of you who want to add a small tint of color to your face without going overboard!

I hope you crush on these products as much as I do! Happy Valentine’s Day <3

PAINT THE TOWN PINK THIS SPRING

PAINT THE TOWN PINK THIS SPRING

I know it’s still a month away, but I am so excited for bright Spring fashion! I love Spring because it’s the time when you say bye to the neutrals you’ve been wearing all winter long and hello to loud, vivid colors. I wanted to share a new lipstick I bought today that I’m so excited to wear out. I tried it on at the store and had to get it. It was so out of my comfort zone and screams Spring 2012:

MAC Girl About Town Fuchsia Amplified Creme Lipstick

I plan to pair this lip color with a floral print blouse for more of a day time look or pop green dress (green was the first color I thought of when I saw this lipstick) with chunky gold jewelry for a night on the town. You can take it a million different directions! I don’t care how much guys hate bright lipsticks, they are too fun to not wear, and might I add that they are right on trend. Get out there, experiment, and be bold this Spring!

For those of you wondering how this color looks on my complexion (tan with yellow undertones), here you go! Please excuse the extreme and WAY too up close and personal picture on the right, but hopefully it’ll help you decide whether this is a shade that’ll work with your skin…

HEY BIG SPENDER: AN EYE CREAM JUST FOR YOU

HEY BIG SPENDER: AN EYE CREAM JUST FOR YOU

Everyone knows that I am a HUGE advocate for affordable products. I really do believe that there are some beauty necessities that you can get at your local grocery store that work wonders on your skin. If you read my post on Olay’s eye cream, than you know that I don’t necessarily believe that you have to go big or go home (when it comes to beauty products atleast). The Olay cream won’t even cost you 20 bucks, but at the same time, I know there are skeptics out there that have a loyalty towards luxury products. I don’t blame you because I have the same weakness at times. In my trial and error days, I’ve tried a few other night creams that have done wonders for me, and I mention one in particular in the Olay blog post. Here it is:

Shiseido Future Solutions LX

You might be asking yourself, why would anyone spend $130 on ANY product, let alone a cream? Trust me, I was a skeptic myself until I got a sample of this product and fell in love.  So, what will this product do for you?

  • Adds Hydration
  • Increase Firmness
  • Anti-aging
  • Reduce Appearance of Dark Circles
  • Diminish the Appearance of Wrinkles

For me, the best part about the cream was the treatment it gave to dark circles. Also, Future Solutions LX has a dual purpose; it works as an eye and lip cream. The rare, luxurious ingredients carry the latest in Japanese skincare advancements. For anyone else (like myself) that has a darker pigmentation around their lips, I recommend this product. Go splurge on yourself and try Shiseido Future Solution LX!

What’s YOUR favorite eye cream?
