Revlon Coral Reef Lipgloss

I just wanted to share this lipgloss with all of you. You have probably already seen it, but it's so pretty I wanted to show you anyway.
I have a few of the Revlon lipglosses and I love all of them. All of the ones I have have a bit of shimmer to them but not the Coral Reef. This one has a very creamy and glossy texture.
Here is pic of me wearing it.

Cute and Colorful Accessories!

Hey there! I just wanted to share some fun, bright accessories I found recently that I really like. I don't have any "statement" necklaces, ( I know, I know, I'm behind on that trend) so I was really excited to get it. Plus I love that they both have a lot of color (well, mostly the bracelet). I think they can work for summer and fall as well. I got the necklace from Khols and is by Candie's. The bracelet from H&M. Let me know what you guys think.

Lorac Little Black Palette

I spotted this palette when I was at Sephora and I knew I had to have it. These are shimmery, baked eyeshadows and the colors range from light gold to a dark brown. It also comes with a mini Behind the Scenes Eye Shadow Primer. My favorite colors are the dark brown and the lighter bronze color. The colors are very pigmented give a light shimmery, almost metallic look that blend well together. I have only tried the eye primer a few times so I don't want to comment on it just yet, but I've been using the shadows all over the place and I love them.

Re-Discovered Product That I Never Even Used

I was cleaning out my makeup case and I discovered an eyeshadow that I bought a while ago and never even used. It's the NYX Ultra Pearl Mania loose eyeshadow in Charcoal Pearl. It's absolutely gorgeous and I can't believe I haven't used this yet!
I was trying to figure out what eye look I wanted to do because I was wearing a purple top and I was going to work so I couldn't do anything too crazy or bright and I'm tired of just a neutral look. Well, problem solved because this shadow just popped out of nowhere. I decided to use it as a liner so I wet a MAC 224 angled brush with Fix+ and dipped it in the shadow. It looks amazing! It comes off totally different than what it looks like in the bottle. It definitely looks charcoal but it has blue metallic sheen to it as well. The sheen looks great against blue eyes. I felt like I received a prize when I found it!
I think this shadow will look great layered over a black or grey eye pencil, even a dark brown eye pencil. Yeah, I'm gonna try the dark brown pencil next time I wear it.
I also like that it's not as intense as a black liner so it's great for summer but it will also be great for fall and winter too because you can make it darker and more intense. I plan on using this color A LOT.

Beyond the Zone Straight Shot

I tried this product last night while blow drying my curly hair straight. I really wanted to see if it worked so I parted my hair down the middle and only used the product on one side of my hair. On the other side of my hair I used what I normally use.
Here's what the product claims on the back of the bottle:
-Straightens wavy & very curly hair
-Tames the frizzies
-Adds moisture
-Long-lasting straightening power
-Humidity resistant

O.K. this product didn't do any of that for my hair. Here's what did happen to my hair:
-This product made my hair as straight as it would if I had just blow-dried my hair with nothing in it.
-My hair was definitely frizzy afterward.
-My hair felt dry afterwards so I don't believe it added any moisture.
-Did it prime my hair for thermo styling? I don't really think so because my hair didn't feel soft afterward.
-I straightened my hair about 5:30, didn't go outside, didn't do anything really and the next morning when I woke up the side I used this product on was even more frizzy and completely crazy. Usually the next day my hair is still smooth and straight.
-This is the only thing I can't comment on because right now it's like 110 degrees out with zero humidity. So, no comment on this but it doesn't even matter because it failed everything else.

My final say is I will definitely not re-purchase this and I won't even be using it again. I'm just gonna throw this bottle out because it's pointless to use it. I wish it would have worked better but oh well. If anyone knows of a great straightening product let me know.

Are any of you thinking about getting something from this collection?

Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse

I'm going to start this review by saying what I don't like about this product. Its packaging! So, I'm not the greatest when it comes to picking out a shade of foundation from the drugstore but when I can't even see the product in the packaging it's impossible! Luckily for me, I follow NouveauCheap's blog ( and she was able to test the products out. In her post she mentioned that she was a NC20 and the 3rd shade from the left matched her perfectly. Well, I'm around that same shade so I got the 3rd one from the left. (Mind you, I don't know if it's the same shade because there could have been more or less shades to pick from than what she had.) Anyway, I found it at Walgreens for $9.79 I believe but Ulta had it for $7.99 and they also had a $2.00 off coupon available, which I used when I bought it. So $5.99 for this little guy is not bad.
I've been using it for a few days and I really like it. It's fairly buildable. You can use it as a light foundation or medium. I wouldn't try to build it any further than that though. I can see it getting cakey. It gives a great even coverage when used with a sponge and it lasts almost all day.
This will not be my go-to foundation but I will use it for touch ups. I think this product will be great for allergy and cold season when you need to touch up around your nose. It's small and compact so it fits nicely in your purse as well.
