June 2012 Empties

Hey Everyone!

Here are all of my empties for June! If you ask me..its pretty pathetic.... I really try hard to use up products... maybe its because I have too many products and I'm constantly switching up all the time!

Make Up Forever HD High Definition Foundation (#115)- After watching a bunch load of you tube videos, I decided to give this foundation a try. Everyone boasts about how light weight it feels and how evenly it distributes on your skin.. and I have to say.. I agree!! I LOVE this foundation! It makes my skin look amazing! I do have some hyper pigmentation so using this foundation makes me feel confident. I would definitively recommend this product and I have already went back to Sephora and bought myself another! 

Fekkai Protein Rx Reparative Conditioner- Soy and milk protein conditioner that revitalizes, strengthens and repairs weak, damaged hair. I first caught a glimpse of this product on Oprah.. her stylist was using all Fekkai products. So I was like if its good for Oprah.. its good for me and I was right. The smell of this conditioner makes me just want to go to the store and buy it again.. sooo good! I brought this on vacation and it made my hair feel so soft.. even after a hard day at the beach. I will for sure buy this product again!

Life Essentials Nail Tip and Glue Remover Dip- I like using nail polish removers when all I have to do is dip my nail in and swish it around and instantly it comes off. I have only tried this brand for nail polish remover dip... so I'm going to have to test a couple more to get my judgement on this! I do feel like this product did a good job though and probably would buy it again!

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream- I got this sample in the mail from Neutrogena when they were giving a whole bunch of products away! If you like a hand cream that's very thick and moisturizing then this product is for you! I like to only use this product on my elbows.. I wouldn't use it anywhere else.. and the smell is not my favourite either. I don't think I would go out and buy this product.

Co. Bigelow Mentha Lip Shine- I purchased this product from Bath and Body Works because my friend told me that it was her favourite lip product so I decided to give it a try. The lip shine is mint-infused for fresh breath. I really like this product.. it does smell and taste minty! I would re-purchase this around Christmas time again because right now.. I like my fruity scents!

Thierry Mugler Womanity- I have never tried any of Thierry Mugler perfumes before and all I can say is that I am in love with this scent. I have no clue.. I usually always go for anything Marc Jacobs makes but this perfume has me at first smell haha. Going to buy this maybe when I save up enough of my Shoppers Optimum Points! I think that will be a nice treat!

Have you tried any of these products? What are your thoughts?

On a sad note.... I would like to take this time to say goodbye to my Grand Am.. 6 years together and our love was strong.. I will miss our friendship... thanks a bunch!

- I had to get a new car because someone hit me a week ago and now my car is a total loss... :(
-Bright side?... A new car!.... but I'm still looking!

OOTD- Floral Dress

{Floral Fit & Flare Dress- F21| Sunglasses- Ray Bans (old) | Earrings- Anthropologie (old) | Bracelet- Aldo  | Flats- Seychelles (old-similar)
Hey Everyone!

Just a quick Outfit Of The Day for you all! I'm running off to Costco because last night they had a special on t.v featuring Costco and how everyone goes crazy for that store. It was around 8pm at night and I wanted to go soo bad to do some shopping but of coarse they have weird hours and they close at 8pm.... I also wanted a swirled cone.. but ya know. I went to my local Forever 21 in the states last week and picked up this dress. I'm absolutely obsessed with this dress. It's soo cute and just right for a night out or running around during the day. In this heat anything loose fitting is what I go for.

Did you pick up anything cute from Forever 21 lately? I love that store!

Lush Lovely Jubblies Review

Hey Everyone!

I decided to do a little review on the Lovely Jubblies by Lush. I first saw this product on a couple of You Tube Gurus's posts and they ranted and raved about this product. I decided... well why not give this a try.

-Yes.. this is a breast cream. It claims that it firms your breasts and neck area. I've been putting this on for a little while now.. and I think to my imagination I thought it was working but as I used it more and more.... I think its a lie. I don't see or feel a difference at all. I wanted to believe in the hype but this product just fell short for me.

-I rubbed the lotion on before I went to bed and my boyfriend said that he didn't like the smell and he even said something was wrong and he felt like he had shortness of breath. I was like... umm what... I looked at the ingredients and it had Sweet Almond Oil... he is allergic to all nuts.. that is why he felt the way he did. Well its good that Lush uses natural products.. but not good for me because I have to watch what I buy and put on around him!

- I do like the consistency of the lotion though.. it didn't make my skin feel greasy.. it gave it a fresh feeling. I put it on before work and I could smell it on me for the whole night. If you like the smell I say get it but I feel its a little too strong for my liking.

Verdict: I would not buy this product again. Didn't feel it did what it claims to do and I don't want to kill my boyfriend sooo I wouldn't wear this around him..

Have you tried the Lovely Jubblies? Did you think it worked? Would love to know your thoughts!

May 2012 Empties

Hello Everyone!

So I decided that I'm going to do a monthly empties post of all the products I use up and talk about them!I don't go through products very fast.. I wash my hair every three days and I'm terrible for not taking my makeup off all the time too... I know I'm bad.. I'm trying to really break that habit with sleeping with my makeup on! I decided I was going to start doing these posts in the middle of May soooo I must have thrown out some other used up products but ya know...

Orlane Magnificent Hair Care Intensive Restructuring Treatment- I just really didn't like this product at all. After shampooing I put this product in my hair and left it on for about 10 min and then rinsed it out. The product states that it repairs and protects your hair. The smell kinda reminds me of hand lotion. When brushing out my hair it was all in knots... I can tell that if I use a really good treatment I should be able to comb through my hair with no effort at all but in this case I needed my leave-in to do the job.

Mereadesso Beautiful Body Balm- I LOVE the smell of this product and the way it made my skin feel. It is non-greacy and it did make my skin feel refreshed and soft. I would not re-purchase just because of the price tag which is $54 for the full size but I do like the product.. its just that I can find something else I like cheaper.

Cargo Lash Activator- I REALLY like this mascara! I love the formula and the way it goes on and I really do feel like it makes my lashes fuller and longer. I like trying new mascaras all the time though so I don`t know if I would go and buy this product again but if I had to I would def consider re-purchasing this again.

Redken Colour Extend Shampoo and Conditioner- Another product I wouldn't use again. The smell is not too bad but not the greatest either. My hair turns out good at first but I as the day goes on... it starts to look like there's no life.. I need volume for my blonde hair!

Have you tried any of these products? What are your thoughts?
