From L to R: Auburn, Blonde, Deep Brown

Brow Precise Fiber Volumizing Mascara ($9.99 @ maybelline.com, ulta.com, walgreens.com) - this one looks and sorta acts like a mascara for your brows. It’s a tinted gel that adds a little dimension and color to the brow area to help fill in areas and make them look fuller. And the small tapered shape of the wand is really easy to use. Available in 5 shades.

Brow Precise Perfecting Highlighter ($7.99 @ maybelline.com, ulta.com, target.com) – So you’ve got your hairs styled so now make them pop by highlighting around the brow with one of these 3 shades. Just line the area around each brow and blend in or just run this just under each brow. It really does make brows standout in your overall look.

The Latest in Liquid Lipstick

D.E.N.-Cosmetics-Lock-My-Lips-24-Hour-Lipcolors

Another day, another liquid lipstick to come into my world! The brand is D.E.N. COSMETICS and they are all about lips as it’s the only thing they sell! Lock My Lips 24Hr Lipstick ($21 @ dencosmetics.com) comes in 6 different shades and there is even a graph on their site where you look up your skin tone and it will tell you what shades will look best on you.

Their liquid lipstick is one of those rare ones that contain the color on one side and a gloss topper on the other and I’m a total fan of these types. The formula with these dries down all the way but not to a desert like some. But if you need a little moisture, yes, you have the glossy topper.

I loved the red of Cherry Bomb. It applied evenly and wore for hours. I wish I could say the same for the Cupcake shade. It went on kind of patchy and just didn’t look right from the start so I’d pass on that color.

Is this a brand you are looking to try out?

This Scrub is Safe for You, Safe for Our Oceans

Wow, I have never gone this long without posting! A bad cold has gotten the best of me the past week and I’ve been in bed every day and today is the first day I’m finally seeing the light.

So onward to another review!

Lather-Chia-Seed-&-Passion-Fruit-Exfoliating-Gel-and-Chia-Seed-&-Passion-Fruit-Cleansing-Oil

With the popularity of face and body scrubs comes the numerous products to use and with that comes the dreaded microbead. We’ve recently learned that microbeads are tiny balls of plastic that do not disappear or dissolve but rather end up in our oceans with animals eating them thinking they are food. Because these particles are so small, they wash down the drain and pass through sewage treatment plants.

Thankfully there is awareness about this and there are bills in place but they won’t go into effect for a few years, so that’s why we as consumers need to pay attention and not use exfoliating products with microbeads. Read more @ 5gyres.org.

One brand that’s never ever used a microbead is LATHER. Take their Chia Seed & Passion Fruit Exfoliating Gel ($29/4oz @ lather.com), It uses finely ground jojoba beads to physical exfoliate and a combination of pineapple and papaya to act as a chemical exfoliation. Great for all types of skin!

Accompany your scrubbing experience by cleansing with their Chia Seed & Passion Fruit Cleansing Oil ($22/4oz @ lather.com). I’m really loving this gentle cleansing oil, which uses organic chia seed oil to clean away dirt and makeup. And it won’t strip the skin dry as it contains omega-3 alpha linolenic acids and passion fruit seed oi, which is also known as maracuja oil, and a beauty buzz word, grape seed oil and vitamin E.
