New Makeup by ONE DIRECTION kits Review & GIVEAWAY

Hello friends!!  How was everyone's Thanksgiving?  I hope you all had fun with family and or friends.

Ok, since One direction had been working with Markwins, they had came out with new Makeup kits.  In case you missed their limited edition, they are still on sale until tomorrow at your nearest Macy's, Dillards, and Lord & Taylor stores for 30% off.  Don't forget to grab yours now or you can give it to someone for the upcoming Christmas.

One Direction and Markwins had just released new makeup kits since November 15, 2014.  You can find them at Macy's, Dillards, Boscov's, Stage Stores,  Beauty Brands, and Lord & Taylor.

Here are 3 sets of kits I received for review.  The first kit (from right to left) is the Liquilights Glow Gloss, second is the Rock Me Nail Kit, and lastly is the Electro Glam Mascara.


Liquilights Glow Gloss sparkles brilliantly during the day and illuminates under UV black light after dark.  Enriched with natural oils and Vitamin E to keep your lips soft and hydrated all day and all night.  Gloss can be worn alone for a pop of sparkle and color, or paired with One Direction creme lipstick for a bolder look.

Through the dark - Electric glitter poppy lip gloss that glows to neon red-orange under UV light.
Kiss You - Orange glitter rush lip gloss that glows to neon yellow under UV light.
Taken - Powerhouse glitter pink lip gloss that glows to neon orange under UV light.

The lipgloss are not sticky at all compare to other lipglosses.  I do feel that they do hydrate your lips.  I do wish that they had a bit of color to it, the colors are really light.  After all, they are a lip  gloss.  Other than that, its perfect for young teens.


ROCK ME NAIL KIT, featuring NEON UV-REACTIVE Nail Varnish and UV-REACTIVE GLITTER nail toppings that add even more sizzle to your mani, for nails that light up day and night. 
Sprinkle the glitter over wet polish for a subtle accent, or go for the glitz and dip your entire wet mani in mega-watt sparkle! 


Happily– UV iced blue glitter 
Moments- UV neon pink 
Diana- UV 3D holographic 

Glitter Toppings

Kicks- UV snow cone blue
Not afraid- UV electrified pink glitter 
Star-- UV holo glitter

Out of the three nail polishes, my favorite one is the blue, although the color is not too vibrant.  One coat was not enough.  You can still see my nails, compare to the hot pink shade.  I enjoyed painting my daughters nails, they loved it, specially the color pink.  I topped mine off with the glitter to make it more fun.  I love the glitters, I just used my clear coat nail polish to apply on my nails, they last longer that way.


Give your look a jolt of electric colour, with this limited-edition trio of ultra-bold coloured mascaras for hair and lashes, in three heavily pigmented, buildable colours. 

FOR LASHES- Make a subtle statement by adding a pop of colour to the tips of your lashes, or add coats to your entire lashes for a shockingly chic look. The more the better!

AS A HAIR MASCARA- Apply to small sections of hair and swipe through for instant ELECTRIC highlights.

Why don’t we go there- Shock of blue

Story of my life- Amped canary yellow 

Does he know?- Pinkest hot pink

I love the mascaras.  My daughter and I had so much fun applying it on her hair and we amped it up with some glitters.  They didn't last all day, but it really looked cool on her hair.  I love the colors selection as well.

Here, I am wearing Why don't we go there? I love how they don't clump up your lashes and they make it look natural.  They separated my lashes just the way I want it to be.  Even after applying two coats, it did not make my lashes look spidery.

Thank you for taking the time to check out my blog.  Don't forget to check out their facebook page

And now for the giveaway!  Good Luck!

KISS InstaWave Review (Brandbacker)

First off, I want to say hello to everyone.  On today's blog, I will be sharing my thoughts on KISS InstaWave.

About the product:

KISS InstaWave is a fully automatic tangle-free curler that instantly creates beautiful, long lasting curls with ease.  Easy for anyone to use, from any angle, with any hand.

The product features a curl dial with left/right directions.  It automatically shuts off after 90 minutes.  A two settings with a low/high with maximum temperature of 420.

Get to know your InstaWave:

Diamond Ceramic Technology:

The InstaWave's ceramic barrel is infused with nano diamond particles which enhance its durability and conductivity, providing consistent heat for a flawless finish.  Combine that with the ceramic barrel which generates negative ions that neutralize the positive ions that cause static electricity and frizz, and you're left with beautiful, shiny, bouncy curls!

KISS InstaWave is my new favorite curling iron.  You will see at the bottom the difference of my curls.  The first picture shows how my curls are, with  a regular curling iron.  The second picture shows how the curls are, with KISS Instawave.  My hair is thick and for some reason my curls never stays, even when I use hairspray, however, with KISS Instawave, my curls stayed all day and night.  Even the next day, my curls were still intact.  How awesome is that!!  I am so in love with this curler.  My hair even came out so shine and was not frizzy.  Only thing I didn't like is that it makes a sound each time I curl, but that's it.

I would like to thank Brandbacker and KISS for giving me the opportunity to try out this product!

For more information on KISS INSTAWAVE, please go to or you can also find them at ULTA, Walmart and Amazon.  (U.S. only)

In Canada, KISS InstaWave is available at Walmart

Vitamin C Facial Toner Review (Tomoson)

Sorry, I haven't posted any blogs in awhile, but now I am back and I want to share with you this new Vitamin C Facial Toner I've been using for the past month.

Here is how the bottle looks like: it comes in a plastic bottle and spray.  Here is a description of what Vitamin C Facial Toner does to our skin.

  • CONTAINS 100% NATURAL and ORGANIC INGREDIENTS - Also has Vitamin C, an essential nutrient that is vital to developing skin health and youthfulness. This antioxidant is needed in order for the body to produce collagen, which is what keeps your skin elastic and supple. A daily dose of Vitamin C with our Facial Toner Spray is a great way to restore a youthful complexion by helping to strengthen your skin to protect and fight against environment factors that speed up the signs of aging.
  • CLEANS & SHRINKS PORES - When pores are clogged, they appear bigger because they are easier to spot. Our toner contains powerful astringents - such as Witch Hazel and Tea Tree Oil - which purify your skin by cleaning and tightening pores, shrinking their appearance.
  • COMBATS OILY SKIN - Those with oily skin will also rejoice using this reviving facial toner. The ingredients in our spray work to combat and remove excess oil, while restoring your natural pH levels so your skin is balanced. Our formula is gentle and suitable for all skin types.
  • HYDRATES & PREPS SKIN - Each soothing mist delivers instant refreshment to your face. As your skin is hydrated, the MSM in the formula works to penetrate your pores to increase their elasticity. Your face will become more receptive to absorbing serums, oils, and moisturizers applied thereafter. Our Vitamin C Facial Toner is a great way to prep your skin for your beauty routine
I have been using this product for the past month now and been loving it.  I use this product twice a day (day and night).  My skin feels fresh after spraying this on my face.  Vitamin C Facial Toner works with all skin types.  It helps moisten my skin and did not make my skin dry.  The only thing I didn't like about the product is the spray.  I can't tell if I am spraying too much on my skin.  I did not like to spray it on a cotton balls because It leaves lints on my skin.  But, other than that I love it.

I hope you try out the Vitamin C Facial Toner.  
Here is the link on where you can purchase:

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Here is my before and after brows:



I love how you can apply it lightly and build it up.  You can make it darker if you want, but I prefer light most of the time.  It just looks natural that way.  You will notice on my previous pictures how my eyebrows are darker.

"Eyebrows are one of the most important features of our faces, and yet they are often the most neglected." -Billion Dollar Brows

I agree!  Because sometimes I'm rushing and I don't take my time doing my brows and they just look horrible to me.  

I have been using Billion Dollar Brows Kit since I received them.  

Here is another picture of my brows with Billion Dollar Brows:

I highly recommend this kit!!  Here is a link to purchase online:

Victoria Secret Sport Bra Review (Influenster)

Hello my lovely readers!  I want to share with you all about what I use to wear for exercise before Influenster and Victoria Secret sent me the new Knockout Sports Bra and Pants.  When I'd go for a walk with my family, I would just wear a regular sports bra and a tank top with it, and a leggings.  They are comfortable, but when you see me wear them, you wouldn't even think I'm out to exercise.

When I got the email from Influenster that I will be receiving the Victoria Secret Sport Bra VoxBox, I was like a little kid that got a candy.  It changed my daily routine.

Here is the picture of what I received from Influenster:

Here is a description about the sports bra:

"A front zip reveals structured cups that clip together for a maximum-support sport bra that’s easy to put on and take off. Perfect for running, boxing and high-impact workouts, all in Body-Wick fabric that keeps you cool and dry. Breathable padding makes any routine a breeze. Get a runway body in performance workout gear from Victoria’s Secret Sport.
  • Maximum support
  • Double-layer front closure for bounce-free workouts
  • Breathable padding with wicking liner to keep you extra dry
  • Super-soft elastic band for comfort & movement
  • Adjustable padded straps
  • Body-Wick keeps you cool & dry
  • Perfect for running, boxing and cardio"

The sports bra and the bottom are so comfortable.  They fit perfect and I just love wearing it everyday for a walk.  I went back doing walk or jog when I received this.  I feel sexy when I wear them.  I machine wash both and hang dry them.  

Victoria Secret also provided coupons for us to share to our friends or family, but I ended up using it for myself.  The rest of the coupons I shared with the other shoppers at the store that were also looking around the active wear.  I didn't want to waste them, maybe someone else can use them too.  I mean, why not? right?  

Here is what I bought:

Here, I bought a tank top to go with my sports bra.  I'm still comfortable showing my belly, so I decided to get this.  I started taking my Victoria Secret Sport Bra, the bottom, and tank top with me to work and we go for an hour walk.  I feel like I'm being more active than before since I got this from Victoria Secret.

In this picture, I am wearing the sports bra, bottom, and tank top, while waiting for my daughter to get home from school, after I had gone for a walk.

Nerf Demolisher Blaster (BzzAgent)

Hello my lovely readers!  When I found out that I qualified for this awesome toy from Nerf, I was so happy because it's what my oldest son been wanting for his bday.

Here is a picture of what they sent me:

Included in the package was a pack of double AA batteries and Nerf coupons.

Here is what's inside the box:

Now who wouldn't want to play with this toy.  Ok, so since I have two boys I have to get another one because it just wouldn't be fun if you only have one Nerf Demolisher Blaster.  Don't you agree?  So, since Hasbro and BzzAgent added coupons on the package, I went and use the coupon and purchased one at Walmart.  It was also perfect timing because the Nerf Demolisher was on markdown.  Now, we have two.

My boys were so happy to receive the Nerf Demolisher Blaster.  Sorry, I didn't get the chance to take pictures of them.

Exuviance Review

Hello my lovely readers!!  Today I'll be sharing you my review on Exuviance Illumination Duo sample with Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 treatment sample.
About The Product:

"Exuviance Illumination Duo combines the power of our nighttime transformer, Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex, with the 100% pure active formulation of Exuviance Vitamin C+ Antiaging Booster for a potent antiaging cocktail that combats the visible signs of aging.

Give your skin a beauty boost! Mix Vitamin C+ Antiaging Booster with Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex before bed. The Vitamin C amps up the effects of the Evening Restorative Complex for a potent antiaging cocktail that acts as an evening transformer for all skin types.

- Evening Restorative Complex is clinically proven to improve overall skin texture, tone, and appearance
- 90% saw smoother skin after 4 weeks of using Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex
- Vitamin C+ Antiaging Booster amps up the effects of the Evening Restorative Complex, helping to fade the look of dark spots while improving firmness and smoothing wrinkles

The powerful Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) Gluconolactone in Evening Restorative Complex decreases lines and wrinkles, evens skin tone and improves roughness and texture. Lactobionic Acid - a potent antioxidant - inhibits wrinkles from forming, plumps and firms the skin, and enhances clarity. This bionic blend of PHAs, along with botanicals and Vitamins A, C and E, delivers full-strength anti-aging benefits without drying or irritation, even on the most sensitive skin types.

The 100% pure active formulation of Vitamin C+ Antiaging Booster contains Vitamin C, an essential co-factor in collagen synthesis, known for its power to strengthen skin's matrix, improve firmness and smooth wrinkles. Plus, we've added our patented super antioxidant, Aceta-C™, to enhance the natural antiaging effects of Vitamin C, amplifying its skin-protecting and pigment-evening effects. Together, they help fade the appearance of unwanted dark spots, and strengthen skin's defenses against future discoloration and signs of aging. (What does 100% actives mean? The formula does not contain water or fillers, etc. All the ingredients are benefit ingredients.)"

"EXUVIANCE® is created by Drs. Van Scott and Yu, widely recognized as leaders in the field of cosmetic dermatology. They discovered the antiaging benefits of Glycolic Acid and created and patented the first Glycolic Peel. Since their ground-breaking discovery, the creators of Exuviance have continued to develop many new patented antiaging ingredients backed by evidence from numerous scientific and clinical studies. Recognized around the world, Exuviance formulas are expertly developed to visibly transform skin by combining their patented innovations with the best, state of the art technologies available in dermatology today."

Here is a picture of me applying the Exuviance Performance Peel.  My skin feel so soft and so freshed after applying this.  I had also applied the Exuviance Illumination Duo after the Exuviance Peel. The product didn't irritate my skin and that's a good thing.  I wish I can use this every night, but they were only able to send them to me in samples.  I am glad that I was able to try this out.

This product are available at and stores nationwide and the values at $120.00; Retail Price $77.00
