Mac lip conditioner w/spf 15 & lavender

OK, so you may have noticed by now that I'm a tiny bit obsessed with lip balm and lip care products in general I'm on the constant search for the perfect, smooth and moisturized lips..

But I feel like I may have found an answer and it is Mac lip moisturizer my sister told me about it she said her lips were badly cracked and she claimed this helped in one application so being the lip product junkie that I am I had to get my hands on some.

This is a limited edition version of the lip moisturizer that Mac carries it has lavender which gives it a nice pearl look and a nice subtle smell which I really enjoy, I used this for only two days and my lips have never been softer I really like this product I had been putting vitamin e oil on my lips morning and night and it helped my dry winter lips but they still were not were I wanted them and now they are thanks to this Mac lip moisturizer I am really amazed at how well it works and how nice it makes me lips I even went back and bought a spare one just in case because it is limited edition and i plan on using only this product from now on I just love it!

Overall review: best lip moisturizer I've even tried and is now my #1 lip care product!

Neosporin lip Heath review

I had high hopes for this line since it claimed to improve lips within 3 days I initially felt like my lips were hydrated but I kept having to re apply but I never really saw no improvement I even got the overnight treatment cream and still didn't get the results I expected.

So overall final verdict these two products did not work for me and they were not cheap.

Look what I won!!

I couldn't believe i won a giveaway it's so awesome! I won a giftcard for csn from the lovely li lian from Shortwidenails she is such a sweetie pie cuz my gmail put her email telling me I won in the spam and I didn't get it and she gave me a WHOLE week to respond and even did a follow up most people only give you 48 hrs and then they redraw another winner, that was so sweet of her I'm so thankful to her. Thank you so much li lian love you mucho! Her blog is one of my favs if u don't already follow her u should
Chk her out here

I used the gift card for CSN to get piggy polish that is non toxic so I can paint my toddlers nails
She was very excited and even handed me this cute little chubby hand and I painted as quickly as I could and she yanked it back right away she liked it but doesn't understand it needs to
Dry so needless to say it didn't stay to well
But she was walking around showing people her hand super cute! I will have to get her toes while she is sleeping but I'm so glad to have the non toxic paint for her now thanks again li lian.

Lush big blue bath bomb

First let me start by saying I Love Lush!!!
if they had a store in my area I would go work there and get paid in lovely natural products aww *sigh* I love them that much! Anyways I've tried three bath bombs and this is my favorite so far it smelled so nice and made the water a beautiful blue and my skin smells and feels amazing I didn't even mind the seaweed pieces that came out and floated in the bath, when I read the reviews people were complaining about them, saying it was gross but they didn't bother me I liked them, it's part of the experience and they didn't stick to me even when I got out overall I really enjoyed it!

This is a pic off the lush website sorry I forgot to take a pic of my bath bomb before I used it I was too anxious to get my much needed me time on, by the time my days off come around I really need my relaxing bath I look forward to
It all week especially since I've discovered lush.
I did take a pic of my lovely blue water my tub is kinda tiny and the makers of it were really paranoid of water overflow they put the overflow drain really low so it doesn't allow the bath water to get as high as I like..
(sorry bathroom lighting stinks this pic does not do the lovely blue bath water justice)

Since I'm on a lush rant I wanna just mention
AROMACO deodorant bar.

I love this so much
And I will never ever go back to traditional deodorant I hated how my underarms always felt like they had a permanent pasty feeling even after the deepest scrubbing with loofahs
And I even tried using exfoliating scrubs and still they were all pasty as if the deodorant never came off so I decided to try this with it being all natural and I'm in love it smells nice and leaves my skin feeling nice all the time no more nasty pasty deodorant underarms the AROMACO really works well I didn't like the smell to much at the beginning but I really like it now and I highly recommend this to anyone not liking regular deodorant and a little goes a long way I feel like I've been using the same piece for weeks now.

my acne has met it's match

finally I have some hope that clear skin is in my future I've tried...


Max clarity

Avon acne professional

I used proactiv for 3 months and never saw an improvement I do have to say I loved the green tea moisturizer it smelled so good and it was so
Smooth I felt like it really moisturized so well but it's very expensive. Then I tried max clarity for two months and also saw no improvement. Then I tried the Avon system that said it was for severe acne and this was by far the worst system and the most expensive, and it made me break out more I was very unhappy and thought I was cursed to have acne forever..

And then..

Meaningful beauty by Cindy Crawford came into my life and it's only been two weeks and my skin already looks so much better I'm so happy it's such a nice feeling to have found something that works for you and this is working for me I know everyone is different but this system is truly working for me in just two weeks. I know this system is also expensive and my mother in law had received this as a gift and gave it to me since she don't have acne so I'm not looking forward to having to purchase it on my own but to me it's worth it I'm so self conscious about my acne and would pay anything for clear skin
So I will do another update when I run out and if I'm spending the money to get more.

Im so in love with Swarovski jewelry

Here's my stash of it small now but I plan on getting more someday...

Lovely lavender layers

I love layering polishes lavender and purple glitter I liked it before the stamping I used just random BM ip just to maybe see what I liked I liked the bow the best but you can't see the extent of the layers once it's stamped but I do like the final outcome.

valentines day blush PF happy booster vs. Stilla make me blush

The swatch on the left is Stilla make me blush and the one on the right is the PF happy booster Stilla is more of a coral color and the PF is more pink I have olive skin tone an both of these are too bright or dark for me I have to use a very tiny bit an blend but even then it kinda looks like I went blush crazy! The Stilla came with gold hearts but they came off on the first use it would have been cuter if the gold hearts were solid and went all the way through instead of being a coat on top.( plz excuse my hair arms I'm saving up for the no no lol)

valentines day nail idea

Avon and mark haul

The only two things I really liked were the moisturizer it feels smooth smells good and I love the packaging it has a very cute push top that puts out the perfect portion.

And I liked the eyeshadow and eyeliner combo it really stays all day I was very surprised how good it works once it's dry it stuck there it really lasts I'm going to get more colors soon!

As for this face wash regimen for acne I feel like it didn't help at all if anything it made me break out more I was a little upset that my system had less Salicylic acid than the blackhead system I got my hubby so overall I think it cost way too much and didn't help my acne at all!

Cheap easy fix for super chapped and cracking lips

After being sick for two weeks and being unable to breath through my nose at night my lips were so chapped and cracking nothing was helping not even aquaphor so I heard good things about vitamin e and I just picked some up to try on my acne scars within one day of using before bed my lips were already dramatically better after three days use my lips were back to normal and smoother than before I was sick, I even started wearing during the day I love how shiny it makes my lips look without being too sticky, I know everyones different but this really worked for me I got it at cvs for less than 5 dollars.
