Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

I bought this lip pencil randomly… I walked into Sephora and just swatched the color on the back of my hand and I fell in love. I ran to the line and checked out asap. So, the next day I finally used it with a full face of make up and put a little gloss on my lips, used the velvet matte lip pencil … smooth as butter! The color is so bold that I didn’t even use a lip liner.

What it is:
A combination lipstick and lip pencil.

What it does:
Combining the convenience of a pencil with the application of a lipstick in a jumbo-sized crayon design, these pigment-rich sticks provide a matte, creamy finish that will not dry the lips. Enriched with emollients, vitamin E, and silicone, each gorgeous shade glides on and stays put. (Sephora.com)

I got my Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in the color, Never say Never.

I “Confess” that I might need to buy more colors…

Beauty Blender Solid Cleanser

I bought this beauty product to go with my Beauty Blender Sponge that I use to put on my make up. Well… I wasn’t very happy with the, Beauty Blender Soild Cleanser at all. I am actually okay with cleaning/washing my Beauty Blender Sponge under luke warm water and regular hand soap.

What it is:
A solid form of the natural blendercleanser for cleaning the original beautyblender as well as brushes.

What it does:
This cleanser supports the integrity of the blender as well as removes excess residue and germs for a clean makeup application. (Sephora.com)

So, on the back of the container is states to damp your beauty blender sponge and then rub it on the solid cleanser… Uhhh, it didn’t work! My Beauty Blender was still dirty and it didn’t even look like any build up came off. I am pretty bummed that this product didn’t work for me cause it’s apart of one my favorite beauty products…

I “Confess” that I sure did return this product after I knew it didn’t work

Urban Decay : Eyelash Adhesive

I am not sure if you can just buy this eye lash adhesive alone at Urban Decay or if you can even find it on line. BUT… I got a pair of lashes for free per spending more then $50 promo and I finally tried them but I didn’t really fall in love with the lashes, I fell in love with the eye lash glue/ adhesive … haha. It comes in a very little bottle, I mean probably enough glue to use when you wear the lashes a few times. The applicator is just a little stick that you just dip in the adhesive and then swipe on the lashes. The glue is a pearly white but when it is swiped on the lashes it turns this pearly light blue color. The adhesive is super strong, in my experience holds a good 8 hours, glue doesn’t have a smell, doesn’t feel heavy … I just love it. I just a really good product to have a around.

I “Confess” that this adhesive might be better then DUO

MAC: Brow Set

So… the summer days are coming very soon and I decided to go lighter with my hair and put some blonde highlights. My natural hair color is plain dark brown almost black. I bought this product because since my hair is now light my eye brows DO NOT match anymore. I know I didn’t want to tint or bleach my eye brows… Well, I found the secret to make your eye brows lighter, not a permanent dye and it is so amazing … MAC: Brow Set!

I got my Brow Set in color, Boy Girl. It’s a very light shade of caramel/brown. It matches so well with my lighter hair and you can put as much as you want. I love this stuff so much you have no idea. It’s super easy to apply and use: the brush is like a mascara brush so you just swipe and follow the shape of your eye brows. So, if you are looking to go darker or lighter with your hair and you don’t want to dye or tint your eye brows … I would suggest trying out this brow set from MAC! You will not be disappointed 🙂

I “Confess” that this is one of the coolest beauty products I have used on my eye brows

MAC: Pro longwear concealer

I was never a big fan concealer until now— I never needed it or never thought to use it. So, after trying a bunch of different brands, high-end and drug store concealers, I have found the perfect one for me. This concealer is thick, and I like it like that. It stays on all day, it doesn’t get into the fine lines or creases under my eyes and I have yet to get a skin reaction from it.

I use this concealer with my good ol’ Beauty Blender and it works perfectly together. Some people may use a brush or their fingers… But, I feel when I use my beauty blender,  it just blends better and it goes where I need it to. I have my Pro Longwear Concealer in the color – NW30. I believe you should go about 2-3 shades lighter then you are.

A lightweight fluid concealer that provides medium to full coverage with a comfortable, natural matte finish. Colour-true formula lasts up to 15 hours. Helps conceal and correct the look of under-eye circles, and discolorations. Comes in a clear glass vial with a matte black pump. (maccosmetics.com)

I “Confess” that when I wear this concealer, it’s so light that sometimes I don’t need to wear a highlighter

Make up forever: Eyebrow Corrector

I have tried so many eyebrow correctors and I have to say, hands down this product works for me. I am not saying it is better then other eyebrow correctors out there…But, Make-up forever eyebrow corrector is super easy to work with, it’s waterproof and it makes my eyebrows look natural. I am not a huge fan of the pencil applicator because I feel you cannot control the darker or lighter you go. Again, totally my opinion and saying this upon my experience.

I squeeze some color on the back of my hand, take my eyebrow brush and start in the middle of my eyebrows and work to the end and then lastly, I fill in the front and edges of my brows.

Aqua Brow is a highly pigmented gel that enhances and reshapes natural brows. Its superior waterproof formula creates a strong hold while its high concentration of pigments allows for intense color payoff that will not fade. Aqua Brow’s creamy gel texture gives an even, natural result that will last all day. (sephora.com)

I “Confess” that I am a huge fan of Make up Forever products and I have yet to use a product that I wasn’t happy with

Lush: Enzymion

This is my day to day moisturizer… You know I love my Lush products, and I trust everything I have bought from that store. Enzymion is strictly for oily face monsters, like me! I love the way this  moisturizer smells, so fresh, it feels very light on your face, and it doesn’t make your face feel oily throughout the day. I don’t really wear it under make up only because, that’s just another layer of product on my face… which could be a good thing or bad thing. But, to me it just made my face feel heavy with moisturizer, primer, foundation, powder and then finishing powder on.

If your face is predominantly oily in your T-zone, Enzymion is the moisturizer for you! An incredible blend of astringent citrus fruits like pineapple, papaya and lemon, Enzymion mops up excess oils and literally cleanses your face of dead skin and debris built up throughout the day. Nutrient-rich avocado and evening primrose oils replenish essential vitamins and minerals. (lushusa.com)

I “Confess” that a little goes a long with this product and it took me about 2 months before I had to get a whole new pot

Dr. George’s Dental White

I love this Product!!! I found out about it from a Make-up guru I watch on you tube, Jaclyn Hill. I found the kit on Amazon.com and to me it was a good price so, I decided to try it. I mean… Jaclyn Hill’s teeth are super white, just watch her videos!

The kit, comes with the mouth guards, the product and the instrustions. Applying this product was super easy and I did not have any bad reactions to it and It’s totally helping and making my teeth whiter then ever.

The surface of your teeth may seem smooth, but if you look under a microscope, there are noticeable pores. Stain-causing foods and drinks get into these pores causing teeth to darken over the years. The active ingredient in Dr. George’s Dental White® is hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide is extremely small in size and easily enters your tooth’s pores, following the same route as stain-causing foods and drinks. It takes several minutes for the peroxide gel to be absorbed by your teeth, thus the necessity for custom trays. The trays prevent saliva, with its peroxidase enzyme, from causing the peroxide to form regular oxygen and water. Therefore, inside the tray, active oxygen is released, and the tooth is lightened by the actual conversion of colored compounds to colorless compounds. The teeth can be whitened in 2-3 weeks. The Dental Whiteâ„¢ process is not only a more effective method, but a safer one – due to the reduced treatment time. (drgeorges.com)

I really hope you try it out!

I “Confess” that teeth whitener products are so hard to come by… But, this one is the best
