MMUIHD in the New Year!!

Thursday, February 12, 2015
    Hey Beauties!! I've missed you all, and hope everyone has been enjoying the New Year so far. It's been such a long time, since I've actually had the opportunity to write up a post. Living life w/chronic migraines is challenging, and has resulted in me needing to make some adjustments within my life. I can't apologize enough for being so distant from my blog. However when life happens, sometimes your undivided attention is required!! 

      With that being said, I've also decided to make a few updates/changes to the blog that I believe my readers, visitors, and myself will all enjoy. Below I have listed a few changes/updates to expect…..
  • 2015 Upcoming Beauty Events
  • Swatches
  • New & Previously Released Beauty Products
  • Beauty Recipes
  • DIY Projects (mainly beauty related)
  • Makeovers
  • Upcoming Product Launches
  • etc etc
I will continue adding new Beauty Stalking and Beauty $teals posts when possible, since I've received so much love and feedback about the posts. Here's to a New Year…….SMOOCHES!!

Freeman Pomegranate Revealing Peel-Off Mask

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Freeman says....This mask is perfect for ALL skin types. 
It does NOT contain parabens, and was created to refine and purify. 
Immerse skin in super nutrients found only in nature! This Pomegranate-infused mask gently purges dirt and excess oils from skin for a cleaner, refined surface. An 8-antioxidant blend of Acai, Goji, Mango, Mangosteen, Cranberry, Noni, Pomegranate and Blueberry guard against free radicals and environmental stress.

Directions......Apply evenly to face, avoiding eye area. Rinse with luke warm water. Use 2 times a week or as often as needed.

#TruthBeTold: As the peel-off masks begins to dry, you can feel it tightening. The mask will appear like a shiny glossy-like look. Once it completely dries, you will notice the edges of the mask turn white and/or lift up a tad bit. I would say it is somewhat of a way to "show" where you can peel off the mask from. 
     I really enjoyed using this mask. I absolutely loved the way my skin felt after peeling off (prior to/after rinsing off with warm water). I did experience a lil tingling effect after removing mask, but nothing to be alarmed about. (If you have sensitive skin, I would suggest testing out the peel off mask in a small area BEFORE applying over the entire face to see how your skin reacts). I personally don't feel the need to apply the mask more than 2 per week based on my skin type and current skincare regimen.This was my 1st time using a mask from this brand, and it probably wont be my last. I would repurchase as well as try out their other products. I already have my eyes on their Charcoal cleanser.

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......
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. 
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)
Rating: ♡♡♡

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)
  • Rating: 
         Have any of you beauties had a better experience with this product than I did??
Hugs N Lipsticks!!!
