Beauty and Makeup

WOW! I tried this liquid eyeliner from Physician’s Formula in Ultra Black today and it did not smudge for the entire day. My eyeliner was still in place when I got home. I have used the ELF liquid eyeliner, Clinique eyeliner, and Sephora eyeliner. My skin is so oily that these eyeliners do not last. They smudge and smear. By midday, I look like a raccoon.

I like that it’s a pen size, easy to hold and control. The ELF liquid liner is a tiny pot. The brush handle is small as a nail polish top.

I purchased it based on Jean’s recommendation on her youtube vblog. It costs only $9.95 at Target. And the kicker is it’s supposed to enhance my lashes making them longer! 2 in 1 deal for a STEAL!

Dry Shampooing

by dietingfashions on September 16, 2010

Tresemme Dry Shampoo

I didn’t believe it till I tried it. I really like how this product works. If you haven’t seen the commercials then let me tell you what it does.

Ladies, or gents. We’ve all gone a day or two without shampooing our hair. Alright, I’m a new baby mama, so I’ll admit that I’ve gone as much as 5 days without shampooing. And it feels awful. Your hair is itchy, greasey and limp.

Get this product.

1. Shake it up first.

2. Spray 10 inches away from your head. Spray evenly throughout your hair.

3. Let the solution set for 1-2 minutes.

4. Comb your hair.

Voila! Your hair instantly feels cleaner, has the oomph back into it, and there’s none of that grease.

And it smells great!

4 easy steps to make your life a little less stressed.

Review: Jergens Natural Glow Sun Tan Lotion

by dietingfashions on July 24, 2010

Jergens Natural Glow

 

I am currently using Jergens Natural Glow Revitalizing Fair to Medium. This is an amazing self tanning lotion that you would use like a daily moisturizer. Right after I showered, I applied all over my body. I left the lotion dry before dressing. And it seems like 10 minutes later, I can see a subtle difference in my skin color.

It’s like magic!

I also use the Jergens Natural Glow Healthy Complexion Daily Facial Moisturizer. This helps my face match up with my body tanning color. I didn’t want to be tanned yet my face is still pale. Also within minutes I could see the difference from before and after.

Jergens Natural Glow Healthy Complexion

I went the entire day feeling great about myself. I have a decent looking tan with no streaking and no mess. It cost me probably under $15 for both products.

I do enjoy going out and getting a natural tan but I lack time. I do not get to enjoy the outdoors much and probably won’t be able to do so any time soon.

Something did happened the very next day, that discouraged me from this product. I started to develop a rash. My skin is sensitive to this tanning lotion. The weird thing was the rash only covered my torso – back and front. I thought about it and figured I applied too much on my torso.

I waited 4 days later to reapply a 2nd time. This time I skipped my torso. By the 4th day of no tanning application, I did not that the tan was disappearing. It did leave a slight stain on my knees and elbows.

After the 2nd time I used it, I notice a sensitivity around my collar area, the back of my thighs and calves. Forearms had some irritation but was not bad. If I didn’t give in to the itchiness, the rash would subside.

So even though I want a tan, the rash is making me scared to continue this product. I am hoping that I can slowly build a resistance to the rash with just minimal bi-weekly applications.
