The TRUTH and Nothing But The TRUTH: I was not familiar with this brand at all. So when I received this goodie in my Beauty Army box, I was really excited to give it a try and learn more about the product itself. I really liked how it felt as I was applying it to my skin as well as the feeling afterward it had absorbed into my skin. It didn't dry my skin out nor cause any breakouts nor irritation.

Black Radiance Lip Balm & Gloss Duo (w/Swatches)

Wednesday, May 7, 2014
Hey there Beauties!! I'm sure some of you have come across the new Black Radiance Dynamic Duo Lip Balm and Gloss duos that has been hitting Walgreens stores all over. If you haven't, then let me introduce you to Black Radiance's new lip duos......
w/Flash
Top LtoR: 5202, 5200, and n/a

{w/o Flash}
Top LtoR: 5202, 5200, and n/a
The TRUTH and Nothing BUT the TRUTH: I was completely thrown off when I swatched these babies. Don't get me wrong they are pretty lippies, and they glide on like butta. However I assumed that they were lipsticks (out of excitement I misread lip balm for lipstick smh). So for those of you beauties that are not really lipstick lovers, then these lippies you WILL love. They are moisturizing, lip balm-color is buildable, lip balm and lipgloss can be worn separately, and the duo has a great color pay. These lippies will be my go-to on those days when I want just a hint of color on my lips. 
{w/Flash}
1st 3 swatches are the lip balms
Last 3 swatches are the lip glosses

(swatches 2x for this color pay out)
Purchase at: Walgreens
Retail Cost: $3.99; Final Cost: $2.99 (has $1 off coupon attached)

Have any of you beauties tried out the new lip duos by Black Radiance??

Sally Hansen VitaSurge Cuticle oil

Friday, May 2, 2014
  • Vitamin E and botanical extracts conditions and hydrates
  • Cuticles look and feel smooth and healthy
  • Micro-encapsulated vitamins
  • Dries clear and leaves no color
  • Dermatologist and Salon tested

What is it.......A fast absorbing gel formula that nourishes dry, ragged cuticles. 
How it works...... Multi-active beaf infused formula instantly releases a surge of vitamin E & Botanical extracts to condition & hydrate cuticles so they look and feel smooth and healthy.
The results......Smooth, healthy looking cuticles.

Directions: Shake gently. Apply daily to cuticles.  Massage in woth applicator or finger. Reapply as needed.

The TRUTH and Nothing But The TRUTH: I came across this cuticle gel by Sally Hansen during CVS' winter clearance. I have since used this gel a few times, and let me say this: I probably will NOT purchase this again!! And the reason I say that is because I did NOT like the "after" feeling once applied to my cuticles. It left a weird feeling as if I needed to wash my hands following application. I can't vouch whether this product is a must-have, or if it even works to improve and/or moisturize your cuticles. I guess you can say I didn't allow enough time to determine if it does what it says. I will just assume that maybe I got ahold of an "old" or "bad" bottle smile.
  • Product Size: 0.45fl oz (full size)
  • Purchase: CVS, Walgreens, Target, ULTA
  • Retail Cost: $6.49 (75% off during CVS' winter clearance)

Help Me Build & Brand "Artistry By Lo'Real"

Friday, April 4, 2014
        Hey there Beauties! I wanted to share with you all a campaign that I am currently running to help me with Building and Branding "Artistry By Lo'Real".  Artistry by Lo'Real is the name of the business I am looking to build in order to provide makeup services whether it be for a makeover, wedding, prom, photoshoot, etc.    
       As some of you may know (or may not), my health condition continues to be very costly making things that I need very difficult for me to afford. I am pretty much bound to my home-lots of limitations and adjustments to my life. However, I am determined to push through and succeed in building a business in makeup artistry. There are No obligations to donate, and NO amount is too small or too great. The choice is all yours, but I wanted to share with my readers one of the projects that I have recently began working on. I thank you all for your patience, support, encouragement, etc. Wish me luck with reaching my goal!!

Reviva Labs Seaweed Soap product review (and Giveaway)

  Hey there Beauties!! It's Friday, and I am so excited to tell you about an all natural Seaweed soap by Reviva Labs, and to share details with you all about a giveaway hosted by the best blogger group in the world, Central Florida Beauty Bloggers, that is full of Reviva Labs' products. So shall we began beauties.....
{Seaweed soap}
  • Full Size: 4.5 oz
  • All Natural-100% Vegetable base with added scrub action.
  • No animal fats.
  • Helps to remove hidden impurities. 
  • Great for both men and women.
  • **In Spain, Seaweed soap is even used as part of one's slimming or anti-cellulite routine. It stimulates circulation and helps discharge toxins.

The Truth and Nothing But the Truth: 

The Seaweed soap has a refreshing and clean scent that makes you want to say aloud "Ahhhhhh" as you inhale its scent....lol. (I know I'm not the only one that does that). I decided to use the soap on my body rather than my face the 1st go around. The lil beads definitely produced scrub action and foamed up a bit. I loved the way my skin felt after rinsing the soap off. When I rubbed my skin, it made that "squeaky clean" sound that lets us all know.....We're clean...ha ha ha!!!. I love the way this soap makes my skin feel, and recommend it to others who don't like using soaps with harsh ingredients in them.
Retail Cost: $4.00
Retailer: www.Revivalabs.com, and Ulta (in stores/online)
