Lipgloss of the Month & New Product Review

This month's lipgloss of the month is something that I've stumbled upon by reading other beauty blogs. Two bloggers, Beauty and the Brown Girl and Adventures in Makeup both blogged about the new Wet n Wild Natural wear lip shimmers. Click on their links for more pics, swatches and reviews of the shimmers.

Wet n Wild makeup brand has been around for a while but they've finally upped their game in the last few years. Anyway, while at my local Rite Aid -I picked up one of the shimmers and decided to try it and I'm impressed. I got the color Tart #101, which has an orange cap so I thought the color would be orange but it came out pink... it still looks good though :)


The result!

My thoughts... Another great creation from Wet n Wild, the price is very affordable for $1.99. It claims to be a lip balm but the color pay off is like lipstick! It's approved by the Natural Products Association and it's infused with vitamins and natural oils for optimum moisture. Make sure your lips are exfoliated before wearing it because as with any other lip balm it will flake if your skin is peeling.

I'm going to go back and get some more colors!

How I Refurbished my Louis Vuitton Speedy...

I bought an authentic preloved Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy bag a few months back. While I was so excited to finally get the bag and wear it, I realized (at that time of buying and when I received it) that the bag had some wear on it that could use some fixing up. After searching online, I found a blogger, Lollipuff, who posted an article on how to refurbish LV bags.

Based on the recommendations in the post, I used the following products: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, Blue Magic Metal Polish cream (tube) and Cadillac Boot and Shine leather conditioner. I also used laundry detergent and baby wipes. All of the products used can be used on any bag to spruce it up. Read on for the deets, to see how you can spruce up your handbag!


At first glance, the bag had some sheen on the exterior. Most of the brass fixtures had green tarnishing (which happens with aging of brass). The leather handles were dull. The bag had lost some of its shape. The inside was the kicker! The red interior was terrib…

Mac Face and Body Foundation Review

One of my most used foundations is the Mac Face and Body liquid foundation. I've been promising a  review on it, so here it is.

Product Claims
"A water-based, water-resistant foundation that provides long-lasting, natural coverage for face and/or body. Ideal for all skin types. Face and Body Foundation provides sheer, natural looking coverage in an easy to blend, water-resistant formula. The long-lasting formula is available in a wide range of colours and contains several emollients to help moisturize and condition the skin. It delivers professional looking results that meet the exacting standards of beauty photography and is ideal for perfecting the face and body."

-Price is $32.50 retail and about $19 if you're a Mac pro card member (That could be a con based on your finances).
-For the price you pay it gives you a lot of foundation. It's in a 4 fl oz bottle.
-Because it's water based it doesn't feel heavy, it feels very light on the face.
