Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara Review and how to

If you haven't heard already Rimmel London has released a new mascara this month called Scandaleyes Retro Glam.
I received my mascara complimentary from Influenster in my Rose VoxBox it retails for 5.99. What a great price right!!

Okay so Ive been using this mascara for almost a month now and I'm really loving it. Most drug store mascaras have heavy,flaky,clumpy formulas I cannot tell you how many bottles of mascara I have thrown away not to mention I paid well about 5.99 for them also.

Rimmel Londons Scandaleyes Retro Glam doesn't weight my lashes down and it has a BIG wand which I love! The bigger the mascara bottle and wand the better for me! I always find that a big wand really lifts my lashes up high and Rimmel Londons hour glass shaped wand is perfect! It reaches the middle of my lashes perfectly which is a trouble spot for my lashes and it doesn't clump which is a big thing that i look for in my mascaras.

okay so i am going to tell you how i achieved my 
own eye-conic 60s look inspired by Georgia May Jagger.
First i primed my eyes and put a little on my eyebrows then placed tape on the sides of both of my eyes.

I started off with a black matte eyeshadow in the middle and cut my crease first then i added a grayish sort of shimmery shadow to my lid  and high lighted my brow bone.For the bottom of my eyes i used a flat brush and swiped that black matte shadow and smudged it.  For the lashes (my favorite!) i curled my lashes and applied Rimmel Londons Scanadaleyes Mascara. I used the middle to lengthen the middle of my lashes which are my trouble spot. I kind of wiggle the wand at the base of my lashes then comb them with the mascara wand until they reach the desired length. I was so excited because i didn't have to curl my lashes again after applying my mascara.
I finished off with a soft pink blush and a nude lip
Of course my look doesn't compare to Georgia May Jaggers but it was fun trying to recreate it.

I hope you enjoyed this blog because i have had so much fun testing this mascara  and don't forget to check it out for yourself it hit shelves this November! Make sure you have long sultry lashes for the holidays or give them as stocking stuffers.

Happy Holidays! 

Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

Hi lovelies! So I'm suuuuper excited to tell you about a product i received complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

It is the StayMatte Liquid Mousse foundation.
So, I have tried so many foundations over the years the number 1 problem i always have is the color. I am so light with pink cheeks that even the lightest color is either too light or the second one up is like grey-ish looking. No one wants to look dirty when wearing makeup right?

I was so happy and surprised how well that this foundation matched my skin. I chose the 100 Ivory. It comes out thick but super fluffy and airy, if that makes sense.. you would have to try it to know what I'm talking about. It was really easy to blend, felt really light almost like it wasn't there to be honest. It dries to a smooth matte finish and the best part it isn't greasy or sticky after you apply it. To further test it i did not set it with any powder and...... it lasted all day and my face wasn't greasy at all!

Now another problem i have as stated above is the stickiness when it dries. I absolutely hate that! it ruins my powder, my face looks and feels nasty and i feel like my skin cant breathe. I was really impressed with how light this was compared to my 10 bottles of foundation i have in my makeup box, seriously.

I vined my StayMatte foundation routine i will insert it for you to see. See my StayMatte Vine Here
Sorry but it wouldn't let me insert it for some reason.
Displaying photo.JPG 
This was my box . Also i really loved the packaging the tube also has a matte finish and i really liked the purple cap super cute.
This foundation can be found at your local drug stores or Target , Walmart etc.I suggest you go out and try it, its honestly a really great product and at a great price.
One more thing that i almost forgot. When i was researching on what shade i should get i read reviews saying that this foundation dries orange or something. I had NO problem with this and I've been wearing it pretty much everyday. I'm thinking maybe they were not getting their colors right maybe?
If you have any questions comment below, I always respond and id love to hear what you think.

Have you tried this foundation yet? What foundation do you use?
or Share a story about your foundation funny,embarrassing or whatever :)

Thanks for reading and have a Happy and safe Thanksgiving !

Before i started using lysol i used bleach for everything. I really like that these products (the spray and wipes) work just as well as bleach but without the harsh fumes. I used the multi purpose spray on everything.

    Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics

    I have another great product to share with you. I also received it from influenster for testing purposes.

    Goody Ouchless Ribbon ElasticsI received this pack of goody ribbon elastics. I was excited to get these because my friend Maria (heyyy maria!) sent me some of these in one of our beauty swap boxes and I used them so much they ended up stretching out and breaking but now I have 5 more!! I'm wearing one right now, i decided to tweet a pic for you I'll post it below
    Embedded image permalink
    What i really love about these is that you can wear your hair up and when you take it down you don't get that ugly crease that other hair ties give you. If you can braid (which i can't) these ribbon elastics look really cute on the end of your braid.
    Today I rocked a high pony while going to the library

    Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream

    I was super lucky to receive Olay's fresh effects BB cream in my influenster sunvoxbox free of charge from infuenster for testing purposes.

    This Tinted moisturizer offers 6 skin care benefits:

    • Refreshes skin instantly
    • Brightens for a radiant glow
    • Evens tone with a splash of sheer color
    • Hydrates for 24 hours
    • Smooths for softer feeling skin
    • Protects against UV damage with SPF 15

    You can read more on their website: www.olayfresheffects.com

    I was able to test this product for a week while i was on vacation at the beach. I was really surprised how well it stayed on my face and kept me from getting sunburned. i did skip it the last day of vacation and my face ended  up getting sun burnt so yes it does work! I just found out the hard way.

    My skin care routine is fairly simple unless I'm going out. Being a mom and the only girl in my house i either have to wake up or get ready before anyone wants to go anywhere or get ready super fast! with Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream i am able to do that. To show you i uploaded my vine video to YouTube so i can show you on here.
    my skin is fair and my cheeks are sometimes red from my rosacea. I really liked that the BB cream was light but also covered up my imperfections as well. If you are someone who needs a better coverage this is a great product to use under your foundation as well.
    I have tried many BB creams and i have to say i really like this product. Some of the BB creams i used in the past were too watery or felt like sand paper.
    my before and after shot
    my husband and I on the beach
                                     i used the BB cream under my foundation for more coverage in the picture

    This product retails for 12.99 for a 2.5 fl oz tube. it can be purchased online  www.olayfresheffects.com and http://www.amazon.com

    Have you tried Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream yet? If not, What are you waiting for??!!

    Dr Scholls For Her High Heel Insoles

    I am so excited to share my little secret with you. In the past I've never really believed in insoles. My husband buys them all the time for his running shoes,work shoes and regular shoes. (Dr Scholls brand actually) I don't know why i was such a skeptic and yet i was the main one with foot pain.

    I was excited when I received my sunkissed vox box from Influenster. It was really easy to insert the insoles into my shoes. The insoles came with a sticky back which made it so easy to use them! Unlike a pair i tried in the past the insole was slipping around everywhere, it was horrible. I think that's why i was hesitant. The second thing that i loved is that i could use my insoles with peep toe shoes!
    They are so lightweight you can't really tell they are there but they make your feet feel like you are walking on clouds!
    Here is a picture i snapped of my shoes while wearing them.
    They are almost invisible also you can wear them with strappy heels also or heels with no backs. No one is going to see them!

    See you can't even see them. I also *attempted* to make a YouTube video. I used my phone so it is not the best video but it will give you a general idea on how they look and work.

    You can find these insoles at your local walmart,drug store or grocery store. they retail for 10.99
    Here is some info that came on my card it says: Dr. Scholls For Her High Heel Insoles are clinically proven to help prevent foot pain caused by wearing high heels 2" or higher. They offer immediate long-lasting comfort and an ultra-soft gel arch to shift pressure off of the ball of your foot. They're proven to improve the way you feel in heels!

    For more information  check out DrScholls website :http://www.drscholls.com/

    I received these products complimentary from influenster for testing purposes.

    Will you try these high  heel insoles from DrScholls for her?

    Pork (R) BE Inspired Campaign by Bzzagent

    I received coupons and recipes from bzzagent. I made a spiral ham and eggrolls.

    Recipe Details

    This is the recipe i received in my recipe cards.

    Prep Time: 20 minutes
    Cook Time: 2 hours
    Servings: 20
    Cook to 145 F with 3 minute rest


    1 bone-in ham, cooked, 10-12 pounds
    2 cups orange juice
    1/4 cup honey
    1/4 cup molasses
    2 tablespoons brown sugar
    2 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
    1 tablespoon black pepper, coarsely ground

    Cooking Directions

    Place ham in shallow roasting pan; score a diamond pattern about 1/8-inch thick into the upper surface of the ham. Position rack in the lower third of the oven; heat to 325 degrees F. Place ham in oven and bake until internal temperature, as measured with a meat thermometer, reads 130 degrees F., about 1 1/2-2 hours.
    Meanwhile, in a small saucepan bring the orange juice to a boil; reduce heat to a simmer and reduce the orange juice by about half, stirring occasionally, about 15-20 minutes. Stir in honey, molasses, brown sugar, mustard and pepper. Simmer slowly until thickened, about 25-30 minutes. Set aside.
    When ham reaches 130 degrees F., start basting: Using a pastry brush, brush the glaze generously on all surfaces of the ham. Continue to bake for 10 minutes; baste again two more times, until internal temperature of ham reaches 140 degrees F. Remove from the oven and let the ham rest in roasting pan on a rack for at least 10 minutes, or up to 30 minutes. Baste with the drippings in the bottom of the pan a few times before carving.
    Serves about 20, with leftovers.

    I also made my eggrolls that i have blogged about before. i will share that recipe with you again.
    They are so delicious and will make a great appetizer for your graduation parties or summer cook outs.

    2 Pounds of Ground Pork
    Green Onions (diced)
    1 Bag of Baby Carrots (diced)
    1 Can of Water Chestnuts ( these can be found in the Asian or ethnic aisle of your grocery store or Wal-Mart)
    Salt,Pepper and Garlic powder (however much you like)
    2 packs of either eggroll wrappers or won ton wrappers ( i like both of them, these will be in the section with the tofu and premade guacamole in your grocery store or Wal-Mart)
    1 Bowl of water (to dip fingers in to seal the eggrolls.)

    After you cut up all of your ingredients they should look like this. ( i use a food processor its fast and easy )

    Now dump all of your ingredients into the ground pork and mix it together.

    Add a thin line of the meat mixture to the wrapper

    Roll it and leave a little room at the end, you are going to dip your finger in the water and apply water to that part you have left open. Finish rolling and add a little of water to the outside to seal it.

    Don't forget to seal the outside with a little water! :)

    Keep rolling.....

    When you're finished rolling you will need to fry them. You can use any oil of your choice.

    fry until they are golden brown.

    Once they are a golden brown take them out and let them rest on a paper towel to soak up the extra oil. You can add salt to them if you would like.

    I like to eat mine with sweet and sour sauce and also a duck sauce. You can buy these in any grocery store or in the ethnic aisle in Wal-Mart. I buy the LaChoy brand.

    Try these out for your next party they are sure to be a hit

    Ipsys May Glam Bag REVIEW

    I love love love this months bag. I was excited when our bag was the bright colored chevron print!
    I did end up trading my bronzing lotion and nail polish with my friend since i do tan and i already have a few nude polishes.

    I really fell in love with the macadamia natural oil healing oil treatment. I thought it would make my hair greasy but its so soft and goes on really easy. ( my beauty confession: i even use it to moisturize my hands, and the scent is amazing!)

    I also received a concealer in the color of buff from yaby. It matched my skin color really well and worked very good at hiding my flaws (a girls best friend in my book!)
    The last item i received was a lip gloss in the color "fig" from juice beauty. I really love juice beauty's products, they're organic,they smell great and work really well also ( i have a facial refreshing spray from last months bag i think, i love it as well) The color is pretty and it isn't sticky and messy feeling and it smells like lemon!

    I am impatiently waiting for next months bag! Thanks for reading!

    The Fast Metabolism Diet by Haylie Pomroy REVIEW

    The Fast Metabolism Diet by Haylie Pomroy

    Disclosure: This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/FastMetabolismDiet. I received a copy of The Fast Metabolism Diet Book for my review. All opinions expressed are my own.

    About Haylie

    Celebrity nutritionist. Wellness consultant.
    Author of The Fast Metabolism Diet

    HAYLIE POMROY has spent more than 17 years helping people lose weight, improve fertility, overcome health challenges and reach optimal health while still enjoying real food and not going hungry! She’s the author of the The Fast Metabolism Diet, available now.
    With clinic locations in Beverly Hills, Burbank, Irvine, and Fort Collins, Haylie is highly regarded in Hollywood and in the medical community. Her impressive client list includes celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Reese Witherspoon, Cher, Raquel Welch and Robert Downey Jr. Haylie is also the Vice President of Clinical Research and Development for East West Essentials, and a registered wellness consultant and certified holistic counselor.


    Eat your way to a thinner you!On The Fast Metabolism Diet you’re going to eat a lot, and still lose weight. What you’re not going to do is count a single calorie or fat gram. Instead, you’re going to rotate what you’re eating throughout each week according to a simple and proven plan carefully designed to induce precise physiological changes that will set your metabolism on fire.
    • PHASE ONE (Monday-Tuesday): Lots of carbs and fruits
    • PHASE TWO (Wednesday-Thursday): Lots of proteins and veggies
    • PHASE THREE (Friday-Saturday-Sunday): All of the above, plus healthy fats and oils
    • Repeat for four weeks!
    Each Phase focuses on different whole, healthy foods to calm your adrenal glands, reduce stress on your liver, and feed your thyroid so it can produce the hormones T3 and T4, the superstars of a fast metabolism. You’ll reduce stress, too—and as a result, put the damper on the belly-fat hormone, cortisol. By keeping your metabolism guessing, you’ll get it working faster. This isn’t just a theory; it’s the results-based product of Haylie Pomroy’s successful programs. It’s worked for celebrities, for athletes and for people with chronic illnesses who need to lose weight, doctor’s orders. Now it’s going to work for you!

    My personal thoughts:
    At first i wasn't sure about this book. Most health and diet books i have read in the past have been boring and hard to understand. Haylie really breaks everything down and explains why we need to eat this and stay away from that. (I will never eat wheat and corn again! )
    This isn't your normal restricted, calorie counting diet. You are given the do's and dont's, a list of foods you can eat as well as recipes and also a map of what your meals should look like for each phase (and what exercises too!) . She is really positive and motivating throughout the book. I love when she said that DIET stands for: Did i eat today as in:
    Did i eat every three to four hours?
    Did i eat within half hour of waking today?
    Did i eat according to my phase today?
    Did i eat enough complex carbohydrates?

    I see dieting a whole new way now and I'm happy i was given this experience by shespeaks to be one of the first to read it.

    Ivory®'s New 2-IN-1 Hair & Body Wash REVIEW

         I am excited to share my thoughts on Ivory®'s New 2-IN-1 Hair & Body Wash that i received  complimentary from influenster!

    I received the blue bottle. The first thing i did was smell it and i was surprised it actually smelled clean and had a really good scent to it!
    In the past i have had problems with 2 in 1 products. I cannot use shampoo plus conditioner because it just dries my hair out and it's a tangled mess! Ivory's 2 in 1 hair and body wash is actually creamy feeling if that makes sense. It reminds me of Finesse how it cleans and leaves your hair soft. So i was very happy with the results even though i do have to use conditioner only because my hair tangles very easily.
    My son who will only use character soaps and shampoos said he  likes this as well.  He smells so clean which is a huge thumbs up from this mom! 
    Once i run out of this bottle i plan to buy some more, id like to smell the orange one next.
    For more fun follow ivory on their social sites!
    and make sure to watch ivory's digital short on their new 2 in 1 hair and body wash: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=444767822276606&set=vb.102645923167106&type=3&theater

    Hello! I am very excited to share my thoughts with you on Loreals Magic BB cream! I received a full size bottle of Loreal BB Cream in light complimentary from shespeaks.com

    About L'Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream: This product gives the sheer coverage needed to create a natural bare skin finish, while delivering built-in skincare benefits. With four beautifying actions, this all-in-one innovation primes and smoothes, perfects to hide flaws, hydrates all-day, and corrects and evens skin. The product is infused with skincare ingredients like Panthenol, Vitamin E and Glycerin for 24-hour moisturization

    To apply, simply dot on and blend with fingertips. Self-adjusting beads will instantly transform and blend to your skin tone.
     Apply on your face ( my face was so red!)
    blend blend blend! :)
    This is how it looks once i blended it evenlyFinish with powder,blush or bronzer and you're finished!

    I really didn't think i was going to like this bb cream. I have very red cheeks at times that most foundations cannot cover. I am very happy that this bb cream is so light weight feeling. It feels like I'm not wearing any makeup at all.
    This is going to be really good for summer! I usually do no wear makeup in the summer because i hate the feeling of makeup on my face in the heat. It feels like a mask if that makes sense but this product does let your skin "breathe"

    L'Oréal Paris Magic BB Cream retails for $10.95 for 1 fl oz. It is available in four shades and is sold at mass food and drug retailers nationwide. Click here to find out more

    I want to thank L'oreal Paris and SheSpeaks for this opportunity. I really like this product and i have replaced all of my foundations. Now i would like to try the new CC cream that is out! :)

    Have you used any bb creams? What type of foundation are you currently using?

    TreSkinRX follow up review

    Hello! Ive been using the Treskinrx for a while now and Melanie was right! it has taken away almost all of my white and black heads from my chin.
