Lancome Lip Lover

The next best thing that happen to Lancome after Juicy Tubes (remember these way back…) is their NEW Lancome Lip Lover Dewy Color Lip Perfector 8 hour Moisture…and I’m loving it. It’s pigmented nicely, smells nice…I would say slight fruity (not heavy vanilla or buttery/soapy ), it’s doesn’t tingle, not sticky, it’s smooth a and silky. If you have dry or mature lips it will bring them back to life with long lasting hydration. My shade: Lip Lover in Orange Manege. Texture: it’s an hybrid of a lipstick, lipgloss, and a lip balm. I’m loving it.

To add contrast and light to the lid, I also added Diorshow Fusion Mono Mirror Shine Eyeshadow in Aventure, a beautiful glittery silver.” – Daniel Martin

Marta Walsh: “It does what it says…my dark under eye circles and un-even skin is smooth and photo-ready in an instant. My shade is 2.5, a light beige with yellow undertones. At first it looks a bit orange on my pale skin but for some reason it blends really well under-eye”

Suave Macadamia Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner

Best value for your money hands down: Suave Natural Infusion Macadamia Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner. It has become one of the top shampoos I’ve ever tried. It is also paraben and dye free. It has a nice smell but not too strong. If you have dry, damaged, and frizzy hair this shampoo system will instantly soften your hair and make it feel super silky. Suave, who knew. I also like the Suave Moisturizing Light Oil Spray from the same line which I like to use after my blow dry on the ends. You really don’t have to spend a fortune to wash your hair and get it right. Thank you Suave.
