Pixi Beauty Tinted Brilliance Balms (2 Shades) - Swatches and Review

I have already shown you a few Pixi nail polishes, now I have two of the tinted balms to show swatches of. I have been really into tinted balms lately more than wearing a lipstick or a sticky lipgloss. Could be the hot weather here or the "no effort" feeling I've been having, but these are so much easier to throw on and in your purse. There are seven shades available and I have swatches of no.6 Baby Bare and no.2 Magnific Mauve.

Bath and Body Works Fine Fragrance Mist in Sweet Pea - Review

 One of the products that I received in my Influenster Spring VoxBox, was this Bath and Body Works fragrance mist. I'm not huge on fragrances, only because certain ones I end up being allergic to. I always need to be careful when shopping for new fragrances. I was actually excited to see that I received Sweet Pea, I used to have the lotion of this scent but never the fragrance mist. Read on to see if this was for me or if I would pass.

Wet N Wild ColorIcon Bronzer in Bikini Contest - Swatch and Review

This bronzer is one of three that came out for Spring from Wet N Wild. This is one of the darker shades and has a bit of shimmer in it. I use a Tarte blush right now to contour, since it's dark enough to use as a bronzer. I hit pan on it now, so I'm hoping I could possibly use this one as a cheaper alternative. How was it? Read on!

Maybelline Color Show Nail Collection - Swatches (3 Shades)

Today I have swatches of three nail colors from Maybelline. These polishes are from the new Color Show collection which I recently spotted at Wal-Mart. These are only $2.99 each and amazing for the price! There are 30 different shades, and a lot of them are bright and bold, perfect for Summer. I have so many bright nail polishes, so I ended up with these more neutral (some might say boring) shades. I personally love these colors! The swatches on the nail wheel are 3 coats. See swatches and more pictures below!

Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color in Red-y Response

Finally found the Sally Hansen magnetic polishes at my local Target recently. I was excited to try it out and see how good it would actually work. I've never tried any other brand of magnetic polishes so this one was my first. Also, I ended up buying only one, in case it didn't work, was bad quality, or I just hated it. Did I love it or hate it? Read on.

What's New: Simple Skin Care Products

I've seen this brand Simple Skin Care in local drugstores more recently and decided to pick up a few products from their line. I ended up buying the travel size of the products (for $1.99 each) so that I could try them out first. The three I have to mention today are the facial wash gel, eye make-up remover, and the cleansing facial wipes. I have sensitive skin where I can't use anything on my face that has any sort of fragrance. If I did, my skin would be either allergic or really irritated, which is why I hardly ever change my skin care products. I usually use Aveeno products, but I thought since this brand is for people with sensitive skin concerns, I would give it a try. Here what I thought.

3LAB Perfect BB Cream SPF40 in 03 Dark - Review

Today I have a review of trying out my first BB cream, this one from 3LAB. I have been so curious (like others) when it comes to BB creams and how good they will actually work. I have normal/dry skin and my skin is not perfect, but it's not terrible either. I'm sure you've heard about BB creams just about everywhere now, but do you know what they are? It's basically a one multi-benefit product - it's your moisturizer, primer, foundation, concealer, and sunscreen all in one. I will go into more detail about this one from 3LAB below. Here is my review.
