Review:Studio Gear CC cream

Studio Gear Hydrating CC Cream this unique formula claims to fight aging, cover blemishes, retain moisture all without a greasy feeling or film.

I received this cream through BrandBacker for review. I chose the color natural pictured above.

Upon applying it to my skin I noticed it had sort of a grey tint to it but that faded as I blended it in my skin, I did notice some slight coverage but honestly not enough for my liking as I am prone to acne and I need more of a medium coverage to cover any blemishes I may have this unfortunately did not do that, however it did work very well as a primer/makeup base and did seem to blur out any discoloration and uneven skin tone. It blends nicely with foundation if you want more of a heavy coverage but on it's own I would recommend this to be a light BB cream finish. 

It also does give amazing hydration if you have dry skin or combination skin.

Studio Gear:Studio Gear Cosmetics is a prestigous cosmetics brand featuring a full collection of professional makeup brushes, revolutionalizing complexion formulas, and a wide selection of color products for the eyes, cheeks, and lips.

Review: All Natural Dead Sea Nourishing Facial Mud Mask by Rivage

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I was fortunate to receive this facial mask to review, and it couldn't have come at a better time
because the holiday season always stresses me out and eventually it shows on my face...sigh

I was instantly impressed with the amount of product that was in one of these pouches 50gm!
and a little went a long way and covered my entire face (seen below). 

When I applied this I could instantly feel a cooling sensation, followed by a real deep tightening so I know it was working really down into my pores to remove all that dirt and stress from the day.

It instructs you to leave the mask on for 20-30 minutes but I left mine on for about 10.

When I washed this off my skin felt rejuvenated and smoother, I could even tell some of my blemishes were going flatter. I really couldn't believe how well this worked!!

I still have a good amount of product left and intend to use it at least once a week to get the full 
benefit. But I definitely give this one a thumbs up.

Rivage All Natural Dead Sea Nourishing Facial Mask is formulated with mud from the Dead Sea and  natural honey extract with nourishing amino acids to rejuvenate and nourish your skin it retails for $5.99

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Review:FDS Perfectly Portable Feminine Cloths


For as long as I have been alive that brand has always been a trusted name. It's been around as long as I am alive and I have used their products since I first graduated from adolescent to adult.

 So I was more than happy to have the opportunity to review their new Perfectly Portable Feminine Cloths.

 I have always used and been a fan of their feminine spray and always yearned for them to come out with a cloth, and here it is finally!! Have you checked out the packaging??

 It is the most stylish, adorable portable peace of mind ever created. Each pack is individually wrapped with 10 cloths to a pack so it fits in your purse perfectly.

I couldn't wait to use these from the first day they arrived and I was not disappointed. The cloths are gentle, with a light feminine scent and non irritating (no alcohol)but most of all effective! I felt cleaner, fresher and knowing that they were free of parabens and sulfates was an added plus. I highly recommend these cloths to woman of all ages and Ph balances, they will definitely suit your needs and make you feel more confident. I am grateful to Brandbacker for sending me these to review.

Review: Studio Gear Holiday (Smokey Eye) Palette

Just in time for the holidays i was fortunate to receive the Studio Gear Smokey Eye Palette to sample and review through BrandBacker.

Who is Studio Gear?-Started by Steve Rohr and John Avolio, Studio Gear is a prestigious, high end cosmetic brand featuring professional makeup brushes, revolutionary complexion formulas and a wide variety of colors for cheeks, lips and eyes.Studio Gear has been used in many photo shoots since 1996. Also in the beauty departments of Macy's, Bloomingdales, Dillard's and now Ulta.They are high quality at an affordable price.

I tried this palette for the first time when I was set to perform in a Murder Mystery.
This palette was perfect for it because of the shimmery and smokey colors. I was a character
in Victorian times and these colors fit that perfectly. Below is a picture of the look I achieved with
the colors: Frost on the Lid, platinum on the crease and coal in the inner corner. I absolutely loved the versatility of these colors and they lasted all day.

I was thoroughly impressed with how smooth and buttery the shadows were
they glided on like a dream and blended wonderfully.

After finishing the eyes, I applied the Snowy Glow on my cheeks and voila!!Watch my full review HERE

Finished Product!!
This palette normally retails for around $40 but you can get your hands on one now for $25!!

Review:BA Star Cosmetics Lip Pencil In Holiday Red

Hello my lovies !!

Today I will be reviewing a product I was sent for a review. Which means i will be giving you the 411 as honestly as i possibly can!

For this review I will be discussing a Lip pencil from a company called BA Star

With the holidays approaching us rapidly, (Amazing how we go from Halloween to Christmas in a snap of a finger) I know that we all start the search for that "perfect red" lipstick. We search high and low in all of our favorite drugstores, outlets, department stores and even Ulta and Sephora
spending wads of cash on something we'll only use through New Years and
then forget about.

Until now: This jumbo pencil (while very deceiving in the package). Looks almost like a blood red when you first notice it. Then when I swatched it
I noticed more of a pinky-red than a true red red... does that make sense??

Here is a swatch:
And here's what it looks like on:(sorry upside down)
So as you can see it does appear to me more on the pinkish side
but I quite enjoy that as in not being too brash of a red color (like a vampire)
What I also enjoy is that is IS a pencil and you can be very precise.
It's a creamy formula and glides on nicely. I was skeptical that it might be dry or flake at some point but I have had no issues with that so far.
I would definitely recommend this product for those who like a subtle
approach to red and want a longer lasting formula.

COMPANY: BA Star specializes in Cheerleader, Dancers, Competitors and Trendsetters!!
They encourage you to be yourself and to do it boldly!!

Price for Lip Pencil-$8.50

CholyFlower: Review of Fysiko Eyelash serum

Recently, I was engaged in a new product called Fysiko Eyelash Serum through Sverve.
 What immediately caught my attention were the claims on growing my eyelashes naturally.

In doing a little research i found out this product retails for $139!! that's insanity!! So I was really skeptical as to what this really could do for me at such a high price it not only should grow my lashes,but it should buy me an outfit, take me out to dinner and a movie and dessert!!

All kidding aside I received the tube and started to use it and the first thing I noticed was no burning!! and no
stinging. It glides on and that's it no other steps to it just let the product do it's magic.

And magic it did!!! I noticed that my eyelashes felt softer and more conditioned. Mascara became easier to put on and as the weeks went on I noticed the wisps of my lashes were getting longer. What I didn't expect is for the ones that were sparse to grow in!!! not only was I getting length but I was getting fuller lashes!!

So in closing I would recommend this product if you really want to invest in longer and FULLER lashes this is the product to purchase. 

Here is me at the beginning of the trial:               First application
