Smashbox Liquid Lipstick Review

I bought Smashbox Liquid Lipstick to try out. With all the talk of liquid Lipstick, I am on a quest to see how these work out, some I have tried do not last on my lips. I picked up the Smashbox Liquid Lipstick on a recommendation from one of my makeup artist friends at the Makeup Show Chicago.

The Smashbox Liquid Lipstick color I bought was Let’s Dance, the formula is creamy and not drying. I find as will all of these, there is too much product on the wand. I take a lipstick brush and take some of the product off with that then apply it. I do a couple light layers. Once in a while I do blot with a tissue.  I find that the Smashbox Liquid Lipsticks lasts about 4-5 hours on me. It does wear off but there is still color on your lips. At that point you can either add a bit more or some sort of gloss or balm product to revive the colors.

Derma Flash Review – Dermaplaning

As you all know I like my gadgets.So when OVC had the Derma Flash as a today’s special value, I had to try it. I am pleasantly surprised the Derma Flash does do what it says. To sum it up you are basically shaving you face. I have tried Nair for face, tried shaving, used one of those things that zap your face. After all that I still had that peach fuzz that you can only see when the sun is behind you. It is like fluff on your face. Well the Derma Flash takes care of that!

Derma FlasgFrom their website. DERMAFLASH is a first in class at-home, patented, safe, hygienic, exfoliating device inspired by dermaplaning, a skin treatment for the face available only in medical spas or doctor’s offices, which refinishes skin by removing dead skin cells and built up debris. The device also gently removes facial hair for smooth, luminous, and rejuvenated younger looking skin.

DERMAFLASH immediately unveils smoother, more vibrant, and younger-looking skin in the comfort of your own home. Prep is a pre-treatment cleanser and Soothe is a nourishing hydrator for use immediately after using DERMAFLASH.

I am on my 5th session using the Derma Flash, my skin is a lot smoother. On the left side of my face their is some wired stuff going on and it is almost gone.My makeup goes on and looks more smooth and even. You only use the Derma Flash once a week to get results. The Derma Flash was one of my better buys. I love the fact I have no more peach fuzz or a little hair above my lip.

You can buy it at a number of store or at their website https://www.dermaflash.com/dermaflash.html

Lash Detail Mascara Review

I bought the Senna Lash Detail Mascara. Let me start by saying that I do already use the Senna Voluptulash Mascara for a few years now. So when I saw the Lash Detail Mascara I had to try it.

According to the website it Perfectly defines even tiny, sparse lashes for a naturally striking feathery effect in just one coat. Well let me tell you it does what is says! I use it on my lashes on the lower lid. In addition to defining the lashes, it separates them.

Another thing that the Lash Detail Mascara does it makes it look like you have a liner on your lid. Great for me! It defines the lower lashes and lid without having to add a liner. Best part it does not smear. As a result I do not need to add more products to my under eye area.

More information from the website. This lush black mascara with fibers and high volume polymers adheres evenly to create fullness and length on even the shortest lashes. Multi-effect conditioning waxes leave lashes soft, strong, and flexible. 3D Micro brush with triangular bristle design captures and coats lashes with no clumping or weight. Brush tip reaches every lash root, including lower and eye corner lashes and prevents mascara from blobbing under eyes and on top lids.

Apply the mascara to the lashes from base to tips in sweeping motion. Use brush tip to reach the finest lashes and tiny lashes at the edge and corners of eyes. It took me a while to get it right on my left eye, but I did. If you wiggle the wand a bit to get the liner look.

I have tried other before and they never worked like this one. This one does the job and looks great all day.

88 Handbags Review

88 Handbags reached out to us for a collaboration. Of course we said yes. Who would not want to review a new purse. 88 Handbags is a vegan brand and no animal products are used. The founder of 88 is a life long vegetarian and believes that the environment would benefit from the reduction of factory farming.  https://www.88-eightyeight.com

The scientific names for the leather they use are PU (polyurethane) and PVC (polyvinylchloride) PU. The company thinks it is better for the environment. Although more expensive 88 only uses PU in our bags.

88 develops all of our own custom hardware, again with a focus on the best way for the environment and not necessarily the cheapest way.

I have been trying to update my look lately, so what great way to do it by adding a new purse in a great color! So I got the Katie Medium Satchel in Cobalt.  The size of the bag is perfect for me and it is very roomy and the color is gorgeous!  The bag is not heavy when it is empty. I find that sometimes with some purses that they are very heavy even before you put anything in them. On the inside of the purse there are places for cell phone and other items.  My IPad fits into the purse nicely. I have a 9.7″ IPad and it fits.
The Katie has a snap closure and a zipper compartment in the center and small compartments along the side.

88 Handbags

With the purse being “vegan leather” if you spill something on it, you can clean it of with a cloth.

So if you are looking to update your look add ing a new purse on a fun color is the way to do it.

I will be back to get another purse from 88 Handbags.
