Giveaway Break - Mary Kay CC Cream & Lash Love Mascara

It's the first long weekend in Spring and everyone in Michigan has been checking the forecast religiously. It's suppose to be in the 70s and sunny. Perfect weather for Memorial Day weekend!


This weekend you should be armed with SPF products to help protect your skin. I usually go for a minimalist look on the weekends. I'm of the opinion that a good tinted moisturizer or foundation with SPF, and a waterproof black mascara are staples for a laid back, weekend look.
Mary Kay's CC Cream Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15 and Lash Love Waterproof are perfect for a lounging, weekend look. If you'll be in sun, you must put SPF on first! Layered over a higher SPF cream, the CC Cream has eight skin benefits in one cube! It's super light, and has a natural finish. The added sunscreen can't hurt, either.

Lash Love Mascara comes in both brown and black, and is great to wear in the heat or to the beach, lake or pool. No one likes raccoon eyes after swimming or sweating in the sunny weather!

If you need help summer proofing your beauty routine, enter to win both of these items!

Changing My Look with the Weather...

The weather is changing, so why shouldn't your look? I just got my hair chopped and went darker with some low lights. That's not the only change. I'm wearing darker lipglosses and heavier eye liners. Why? Why not? It's the time of year to switch out your flip flops for Uggs and freshen up your look with trying out new daring things!

I feel like I'm able to wear all sorts of different colors with my new darker, shorter do. I did my eyes in heavy black eye liner today using Loreal's HIP Color Chrome Eyeliner in Black Shock. This eyeliner is super creamy and goes on so well. You sharpen it like a pencil, but it's lot softer. It's described as a liquid pencil.

I swept Senna Cosmetics Pandora shadow over my eyes, and topped it off with Loreal's Telescopic Explosion Mascara. Have you caught wind of this stuff yet? The wand is not your typical mascara wand, it's a ball! It takes a few tries to get use to it, but after that you'll be a pro at coating your lashes lash by lash for a full, long look. It gives me a lot of length, so much that my mom commented the other day 'what kind of mascara are you using?'

I'm also rocking Revolution Organics Freedom Glow beauty balm on the apples of my cheeks and lips. This stuff rocks. It totally brightens up my look and skin. I carry it with me to work so I can apply it at the end of the day, when my skin is looking a little tired or dull, and my blush/bronzer from earlier is wearing off. I was a little hesitant to apply it at first, kind of awkward in it's huge tube, but once it's dabbed on your cheeks it blends really well, almost fool proof. I toss this in my purse as a two for one freshen up for cheeks and lips.


I topped my lips with Tallulah Glossary Mineral Gloss in Berry Godmother. I received this gloss in this gorgeous berry color and in Skinny Dip, which is a shimmery nude. With my hair a little darker, I'm digging it in Berry. This gloss is moisturizing and super shimmery. The packaging is great too, with fun 'kiss' facts on it. One reads: "A high impact kiss quickens your pulse to 100 beats per minute, who needs the treadmill."

I'm feeling like a new person, bring on the cold weather!

Tell me ladies (and gents :), what are you doing to change and freshen your look this season? It doesn't have to be drastic, even if it's trying a new lipstick, let's say, bright red, it can make you feel totally refreshed and daring. Leave me a comment and please, do share!

Makeup Break - Jelly Pong Pong

"Jelly Pong Pong places an ardent emphasis on creating products which evoke the dreamer in you & which clearly defines what it means to be passionate about cosmetics. With such pride in our creation comes a focus on product integrity & efficacy. Great-quality products that work." - - (Jelly Pong Pong website)

All Jelly Pong Pong products are made in Italy , using bespoke ingredients and under the care of our experienced formulator. Their manufacturing plants are environmentally-conscious and cruelty free. They are totally against animal testing.

I recently was able to test out some of Jelly Pong Pong's products. Great packaging, colors, scent and more. As you could guess from their name, it's an extremely fun line of products!

OMNIBRONZE
The Omnibronze is a universal bronzer that compliments all skin tones. It contains no shimmer, which helps to make the bronze look more real. It's silky in texture and goes on smooth with a matte finish. I usually wear a tinted moisturizer and bronzer every day, so I'm always excited to try a new bronzer. The Omnibronze looked so natural, and didn't look orange upon application. Aside from it being an awesome bronzer, the packaging is genius. It comes in a congac colored compact, with a small brush included. The compact comes in a faux leather pouch, which I refuse to do without!

LO LI POP
This isn't just a tinted a gloss, it has solid color to it. I tried Lo Li Pop in Cherry Surprise and loved it. Not only does it smell delicious, but it lasts long and has the perfect amount of shimmer in it. Lo Li Pop is available in 6 shades: Strawberry Slush, Cherry Surprise, Raspberry Parfait, Butterscotch Fudge, Grape Sherbet, Rum Raisin.

SUPERMODEL STAIN
The Supermodel Stain is a deeply pigmented cream color for lips and cheeks. It contains castor seed oil & beeswax which helps it to go on smoothly. It comes in a sexy hot pink compact with a mirror for convenience. The Supermodel Stain comes in No Cupcake, Cupcake Pout, Slenderella, Nymphette and Giggle & Pout.

LIP CUSHION
I tried Lip Cushion in 'Crush' and fell in love with the taste and smell of this gloss! Crush has a raspberry colored tint and taste to it. The gloss is a bit sticky, so I have been applying it with my contractible lip brush. Lip Cushion is made with evening primrose oil, beeswax & aloe vera which helps to heal lips and improve suppleness. Added bonus: The box this comes in is adorable. It has a pop up butterfly on top and I'm tempted to keep it for decor!

FAIRY LASHES
This is Jelly Pong Pong's first ever mascara. Fairy Lashes is water-resistant, and makes lashes appear thicker and curvier, and is light in texture. I would say this mascara is comparable to Benefit Bad Gal. It gave my lashes the same length and fullness as Bad Gal does. It's formulated with cotton seed extract which contains oligosaccharides which restructures eyelashes while rendering them flexible and hydrated.

Check out Jelly Pong Pong online or look for their locations in the US, Europe and Asia!

Mascara Break - SPINLASH Review


It’s not the size of the brush, it’s the motion of the potion. While all the other cosmetics companies rely on new formulas and brushes to improve their mascaras, cosmetics company, Akasha has taken its innovative new mascara, SPINLASH, a step further! Not only does SPINLASH gently rotate to remove clumps, coat and separate with every turn, it also applies a liquid line of eyeliner. It applies mascara, eyeliner, and curls your eyelashes all at the same time!

I recently tried SPINLASH and I have to say, I had my doubts at first. I used it with my Jelly Pong Pong Mascara and was very impressed! It definitely feels weird at first, and I had a bad vision of my eyelashes getting tangled in the rotating brush. It almost kind of tickles a bit. Usually I comb and curl my lashes before I put on mascara, and SPINLASH saves me this step. It not only ensures that my lashes don't clump, but gives them a soft curl and evenly applies the mascara.

I didn't try using it as an eyeliner, but SPINLASH users claim that if you hold the wand at the base of the eyelashes and pause for just a moment, before stroking upwards, and you can get a perfect coating of mascara and a flawless application of eyeliner.

I haven't tried Lancome's Oscillation Macara, but I'm sure the price point can't compare to SPINLASH. For $19.99 you get two brushes and two mascaras. You can purchase the SPINLASH on their site, SpinLash.com.

Stay tuned for my SPINLASH Giveaway!
