Mychelle Skin Care Review

I was very lucky to find Mychelle Skincare in my local Marshall’s a few months ago. I’ve been using the products for about five weeks. I wanted to thoroughly test them before giving a review. Some of the products are expensive, so to find them at a deeply discounted price is great. This is Mychelle’s…

IPSY Bag November 2019

Take a moment to admire the cheetah pattern. I love animal prints. Okay. Let’s look inside the bag. IT’s Confidence in a Cream. Something went wrong with this sample. It looks like it’s dried out. I read the reviews, and it sounds like a wonderful product. Now, this makes up for the dried out cream…

Sephora Playbox November 2019

  You know I love sample perfumes. Versace’s Bright Crystal fragrance is described as a fruity musky scent. It’s got notes of peony, pomegranate, and magnolia in it. Lancome Youth Acting Serum. This has Bifidus extract in it which is an antioxidant. Lancome’s facial care is top-notch, so I’m sure this will be good. My…

Sephora Playbox October 2019: What Were They Thinking?

This is the first Sephora Playbox that completely disappointed me. Let’ start with the good. Smashbox Photo Finish Primer. This is good stuff.

The Cosmetics Company Store Goodies

The Cosmetics Company Store always has a good deal going on. These stores are located in outlet malls and they have discounted makeup, perfume, and accessories. For fifteen bucks, you get a free makeup bag and six high-end samples. What a deal! I love Glamglow skincare products, but they’re expensive. The Glamglow Dreamer Duo is…

Do These $160 Face Masks Really Work?

These 111Skin Rose Gold Brightening Facial Masks are favorites of makeup artists to the stars. They contain 24-karat gold and Rosa Damascena. I received them in my FabFitFun subscription box. You get five masks for $160. Celebrities rave about these masks, but do they really work? I gave one a try. The mask smells amazing….

My Favorite Things-August 2019

    This sample of Dr. Dennis Gross Eye Serum gets the job done. That’s saying a lot when it comes to my under-eye baggage. The eye serum costs $69.00 at Dr. Dennis Gross.   This sample of SOL Janeiro Coco Cabana Cream is almost gone. It smells like coconut and cream. You can buy it…

Marshall’s, Whole Foods & BBW Haul

Marshall’s got a big shipment of NARS  beauty products, and I  was able to buy some more lipsticks. NARS is pricey and to get these items for $8 is a bargain since they retail at $32. Scandal lip gloss is a beautiful true red. This formula is sheer with a punch of color. It’s comfortable…
