Impressed!

Okay so if you read my posts I seriously dig Juice beauty products and have for years since that sample from Birchbox. I see there is a $15 box you can order or subscribe to where they pack it with cool products they sell. Mind-blowing. I’ve kinda made up my mind as to what products Im going to keep using in the long run and their CC cream is definately one of them.  I may have to relocate and I started thinking I better start finding places where I can get them or try ordering them online for a change. I dont want to be without my warm glow cc cream but im very interested in the glow-y primer. Gotta jot the name down.  Has anyone tried the primer yet?

p.s. I may have to use my puppy dog eye techniques to get someone to purchase me a jar of the Goop cleanser.

Mixing Two Things Never Worked So Well!

Sometimes I’ll try layering products whether its hair and makeup and it just works so well you wonder why you never come up with it sooner. So here’s what I do now with my makeup.

I spritz my makeup sponges with the Mario Badescu rosewater+herb spray then put 1 pump or 2 of the itcosmetics cc cream I use the illumination one then I put one small squeeze of the Juice beauty cc cream in it because its a bit darker than the it cosmetics one and it turns out amazing! I had to share that with people!

As for my hair I really dig the Living proof leave in I use 1-2 pumps of that and once its worked in and scrunch my hair or mess it up with the bumble and bumble brilliantine and my hair looks effortless and has separation and shine!

Those are my advice for quick but “I tried” look.

Can’t believe this year is almost over!!

Its Thanksgiving-and I’m Thankful.

I must say I had an interesting late October and mid November. I can’t figure out how November is almost over but there were some bumps along the road. I had a very bad November and I had to sit down and remember all of the horrible things that happened then I thought to myself, why would I look back and get angry when Thanksgiving is around the corner? I have great friends, a mentor I email who responds with great advice(for free thanks Brandon)and my mother isn’t dying of cancer. What we thought was cancer was not cancer!

It was 2 years ago this month that I was almost homeless being tormented by the same person who always pretended to have the best interest in me yet would say horrible things in person or to other people about me. She would invite me to places while she would text away and smirk. It was very unhealthy and my father would be like “see the good in people” and I did. If I let this person hurt me for 18 years I tried, dad. So my dad and I were always people that never agreed on things but when I was stranded, homeless and he was the only one with computer access and the ability to book me a hotel he did. That is the kind of father I am blessed with. I couldn’t be upset I have a roof over my head and food on the table-and these awesome Ugg slippers I bought at Ross for less. So today I want to give thanks to everyone that has helped me and loved me though the thick and thin and for the readers that brighten my week! Happy Thanksgiving!

p.s.

I washed with Juice beauty cleanser and I used a pumpkin enzyme mask and finished my look with Juice beauty cc cream. The cc cream makes my skin look so smooth and dewy that I don’t want to take it off.

Brand Spotlight: Juice Beauty

Years ago I tried a sample from the Juice Beauty line and I absolutely loved it. I can’t remember if it was a lip balm or a cream but it was amazing. I’ve wanted to get my hands on the Goop brand skincare but the price is steep if I want to purchase 2 or more and I needed something simple but great and remembered reading Goop was made with Juice Beauty? Sorry if I’m wrong but I thought why don’t I get Juice Beauty stuff I need a new cleanser and a backup item when my suntegrity is gone. I bought the stem cellular cc cream in warm glow and the 2-in-1 cleanser.

Here’s what I thought of the cc cream: the color couldn’t be more perfect. I wouldn’t consider myself fair but not dark either so I’m an odd place I would say I’m like a medium…kind of…I like the more yellow toned items I use colors that identify with cool or warm depending on the brand. I use light in suntegrity and medium in it cosmetics. So that gives you the idea of my skin color. The scent is a very natural scent to me it smells like salsa sauce?in all the good way. It smells like a mixture of lime and spices? hot pepper and lime-ish. No skin irritation and the longer I wear it the better it seems to look. Its not full coverage but between the sunscreen and tint I’m completely sold.

The 2-in-1 cleanser has a light fruit like scent its not watery or heavy its just right its easy to put on and rinse off, no tight feeling and my skin looks smoother every time I use it. I loved it so much I will see if I can purchase another tube! the travel tube is fantastic not to mention its only $10.
