Review + Demo: Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs

Leg makeup? Is that a real thing? Yep, you read that correctly, it's a real thing and it's pretty awesome! Today I'll share my experience with Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs Spray-On in the shade Medium Glow. I am so excited because it actually works! It looks natural and makes my skin look smooth and even! 

Watch as I instantly get a tan, which by the way, isn't permanent, so I can just wash it off at the end of the day. And you won't have that funny "tan" smell either! In case you were wondering, no need to worry, it doesn't transfer over to your clothes or furniture! Once it dries, it stays put. I do recommend when you're going to wash it off, to use a wash cloth that you can just throw in the washing machine later. I also recommend that you apply it until you have the coverage you're happy with. When I applied it, I wanted the minimum so I didn't continue adding more product. I will of course add more depending on what look I'm going for.
This is definitely one of those products that is great for everyone...young or "mature". I'm making this part of my regulars because I want beautiful smooth looking legs all the time! Perfect for special events, photo-shoot fun, or just when you want to feel good!

CROWDTAP: Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blends

I was lucky to be chosen to receive another amazing crowdkit from CrowdTap. It came with the Neutrogena Healthy Blends powder and the Healthy Skin Blush. The powder (Shade 30-Sunkissed) is supposed to give a sheer illuminating color that looks natural. It definitely blended nicely with my skin tone and gave me healthy looking skin! In addition, it has Vitamin C and botanical conditioners so you get the added benefits while you look great! I chose to wear it by blending all the shades with my brush and applying it that way to my face. On its own it looks beautiful and natural. I also wore it over my foundation to give it a natural finish.

The Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blush I chose was in the shade 40-Bronzed which goes nicely with the powder & can be used as a contouring powder, too! Since it looks so natural, I can definitely wear this all year round to always have a glowing face as if I just got back from catching rays at the beach!

I loved both of these & definitely recommend them!

REVIEW: Maybelline SuperStay #BetterSkinChallenge Foundation

I completed the Maybelline 3 week #BetterSkinChallenge & wanted to share my results with you as promised in a previous blog post! I've been sharing small updates throughout the process on my Instagram, but now that I've reached the end of the 3 weeks, I can give you guys a more detailed review.

Bottom Line: I love the Maybelline SuperStay Foundation!
Here's a list of things I love about it:

  • Matte Finish
  • SPF 15
  • Oil Free
  • Has Actyl-C (a more durable form of Vitamin C)
  • Long Lasting (stays on all day)
  • Pump Dispenser
  • Blends easily into my skin
  • Build-able coverage
  • Lightly scented
  • Great formula & consistency

Watch my 3 week journey as I test out the Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin foundation.

There were only 2 things I didn't like so much, but they both have easy solutions.

Photo taken with flash
1) The complimentary shade I received "Nude Beige" has a bit of an "orangey" hue for my taste, but I easily fixed that by using a bronzer to achieve a more "brownish" tone. Since they have 12 shades available to choose from, I'm sure I'll find one that matches my skin even better!

2) I also noticed that when I took pictures using flash, my face looked "white-ish", but that also had an easy fix...I didn't use the flash when taking most of the pictures. 

And as far as having "Better Skin", I definitely felt my skin looked great & wasn't irritated after I removed the foundation each night. Also, didn't feel like it was "drowning" under the layers of foundation when I applied it. To summarize, this is going to be a foundation I definitely recommend if you like having a "matte" look which is my favorite!

GLAMOUR: Popularizer 100

Have you heard of Glamour magazine? It is described as a magazine "for the woman who sets the direction of her own life and lives it to its fullest and chicest"...YEP! That sounds exactly like me, right?! I'm definitely thankful for the life I've been blessed with.

Well, here's the scoop! A while back I joined their "Glamspotters" panel which is a free program that anyone can join where you get to take a few surveys and answer poll questions. Some people are even chosen to test and review products. I had never actually received anything to test out, but a few months ago, I received an email letting me know that I was chosen to be part of their new "Popularizer 100" community. I was so thrilled to be chosen, but wasn't really sure what to expect. 

I had honestly forgotten about it until yesterday when I opened up my front door and found this HUGE box with my name on it and it was from GLAMOUR! The rest is history, I was so excited I immediately took out my camera & started filming. Here's the video which I'm sharing with you! Wanna see what was inside the box?

Look out for upcoming reviews on these products!

THANK YOU GLAMOUR!
XOXO

Back To School Shopping Already?!!

Time flies when you're having fun and this summer has been no exception. I can't believe it's time for "Back to School" shopping again. Notice how I said "shopping"! That's because it's the only part of "Back to School" that I actually enjoy. Having my kids home is the best feeling in the world so I'm not as excited as they are about starting school again. 

We did a small shopping trip and here are the things we purchased.


If you're going back to school or you have little ones that are, I wish you all a wonderful and blessed year!

Have fun and learn a lot!

Nail Care Routine: How To Remove Nail Polish


As part of my love for nail polish, I have to include the process of removing it from my nails which as you may know can be a bit of a struggle some times. But I've discovered a way to use just 1 cotton ball & pure acetone to completely remove nail polish from all 10 nails! I'm sharing it with you in this simple "How To" video

It's incredible that with only one cotton ball I can remove even a complicated design with several layers of nail polish as well as clear top coats! You have to see it to believe it!



Do you have any nail care tips you'd like to share? Leave a comment and share! I'd love to hear from you! Follow me on Instagram to see my swatches & to find out more about my next GIVEAWAY COMING SOON!!
