Youngblood Mineral Radiance Crème Powder Foundation Review

I have never tried a creme powder foundation before, so I was really excited to try this one from Youngblood cosmetics. The company has been around for over 15 years, and was founded by Pauline Youngblood. Today, her Youngblood carries on her original values: a passion for providing the healthiest, highest quality products, while empowering women to look and feel their best. Today I have a review of the Youngblood Mineral Radiance Crème Powder Foundation in Honey.

Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Lip Glosses - Swatches and Review (2 Shades)

Today I have swatches and a review of some of the new Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Lip Glosses. The two shades I bought were Plum Luster and Iced Chocolate. I was really excited to try these and hoped I would love them. Also, sorry for the picture not being that clear of the glosses. The blinds on my window made them looked striped. Once I noticed I had ripped the packaging off. See how excited I was! Okay, let's get to swatches!

Sonia Kashuk Extreme Wear Eye Base - Review

I haven't done a lot of reviews on eye bases/primers, and there is a reason for that. I always use the same two primers: MAC Painterly or Too Faced Shadow Insurance. I wasn't even looking to buy a new eye primer, but this one from Sonia Kashuk looked interesting. I put it to the test to see how long lasting it would be and if it's worth buying. See my review below!

NOTD: Butter London All Hail The Queen

Today I have a NOTD post featuring a polish from Butter London. This one (and 2 others) are actually my very first Butter London polishes and I really like them. I received them from Coterie through a deal they had with iFabbo for their members. I have to thank them both for these polishes. I will feature the others soon. Let see swatches of Butter London All Hail The Queen!

This was 3 coats and the color is so gorgeous! I decided to put no top coat to see how it would wear, and absolutely no chips on day 2. Now that I have tried Butter London polishes, I would definitely buy these for the quality.

What is your favorite Butter London polish?

EOS Alice In Wonderland Limited Edition Lip Balm Collection

I just wanted to do a quick post of what I picked up at Target recently. EOS came out with new lip balms, but Alice in Wonderland style! I knew I needed these as soon as I seen they were Alice in Wonderland. I love EOS lip balms already, so I knew these wouldn't disappoint. So cute!

This is a kit styled like a clutch and features a removable eye shadow palette for touch-ups on the go whenever you need it. Nine long-wearing eye shadows create a range of looks from neutral to dramatic to smokey. Let's see what it looks like inside and swatches!

Dove Daily Moisture Conditioner - Review



Today I have a review on a conditioner from Dove that they recently sent me to give my opinion on. I ended up receiving the Daily Moisture conditioner, I didn't take a picture of the actual bottle since the label came off when I removed the plastic. My hair is so difficult to manage, I didn't think I would enjoy this conditioner. I have even tried a different Dove conditioner in the past, and it made my hair feel worse than better. This was so much better! Read on to see what else I thought..
