Cindy Crawfords Meaning Beauty creme de serum Review

I recieved Cindy Crawfords Meaningful Beauty creme de serum thru Influenster to review . Since I'm getting older and my skins needs are changing I was happy to receive this. I have been interested in the line since I've seen it on tv. 
The packaging is great it has a pump applicator which is great for keeping fresh and germ free. I love the way the two serums intertwine in the bottle, it looks cool and also comes out like that.
The cream is creamy but not greasy or thick. One pump is all you need. The bottle says for morning or night use, but I would definitely use at night to give it time to sink in. These next pics are my before and after pics. You might not be able to see much difference, but I can. My skin looks instantly youthful. But no my fine lines didn't just disappear like most women want. 
                      Before

                          After

Overall I recommend this serum for night use. I would love to try the whole system. If you want to try the whole system go check out their site  http://www.meaningfulbeauty.com.   Have you used this line?

NYC Sparkle Eye dust Review

Hi guys long time no type I know! But I'm back and to review this shimmery eyeshadow I received from Influenster in my Paradise Vox Box.



NEW VERSION! What a difference!

OLD VERSION
Now for all you drugstore makeup collectors might have noticed, this is a revamp on the original eye dust. Which is a big improvement applicator wise! I had no idea until I started doing a bit of research that this is the same product! The eyeshadow is still a great product as the original. I'm a lover of loose eyeshadow or aka pigments, because there are so many possibilities with this kind of eyeshadow.


                                   FLASH                                                

 As you can see by theses swatches is gives great color with one swipe. And the shimmer is not too over powering! But sad to say for makeup lovers as myself I use brushes so this sponge applicator, while better the the original, I just have no use for applicators. Now if you're  a simple gal then this is definitely a plus for you! As for the color, and quality of the shadow it is great and
I would buy more. Its smooth and easy to work with. To get more information about NYC's Sparkle Eye dust, check out their site.

L'Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream Review

 L'Oréal Paris describes 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."

I've tried a few BB creams, but have kind of stayed away from them, because they are not full coverage. And full coverage is what I need. Most american BB crams are just tinted moisturizers. Some are better than others of corse. But I have to say that this BB cream has descent coverage. The color match was also very nice.

Check out my video for more details.



I would like to thanks SheSpeaks and L'Oreal Paris for letting me try this full size product out! I love trying new beauty products all the time.

Winter Hand Care With Norwegian Formula® Hand Cream Review

If your hands are anything like mine you will need these little steps to nice smooth hands. After all I can't film with gross looking hands!

Step 1.
Scrub for the hands. It can be anything, even home made!

                                                

Step 2.
Pat dry.

Step 3.
Apply Neutrogena Hand Creme (Review Down Below)
Step 4.
Paint away! Hand Perfection!

And now for my review on the Neutrogena hand Cream:

These are the before! Keep in mind I already have dry body skin and wash my hands constantly. I work with kids!
Even after 1st application you can see the difference.  Since the consistency is thick it is pretty much waterproof.

This is after a week with no lotion other than a morning application of my body lotion. Most of my hang nails are healed and I don't have to apply as much hand cream.                                

Neutrogena states that, "while this classic product has proven itself among rugged outdoorsmen for decades, it's becoming a must-have for nail care enthusiasts, too. Norwegian Formula® Hand Cream helps heal dry cuticles and splitting nails to keep manicured hands looking beautiful. Its glycerin-rich formula can withstand nature's most demanding conditions and life's toughest activities to maintain healthy hands, nails and even lips." And I can see why!
Thank You BzzAgent and Neutrogena for sending me this hand cream to try I'm glad I did!
