Summer is quickly approaching and it is the perfect time to stock up on gloss girls (unless of course you live in the Southern Hemisphere : ) Sparkling, sheer Juicy Tubes are my absolute favs.
These are quite popular glosses--clear or sheer color in a tube with a slant tip. The gloss is slightly fruit flavored and may have some sparkles, depending on the shade. The tube is easy to apply and more sanitary than a wand gloss, as only the outer slant tip touches your lips. This is a great gloss if you want very shiny gloss. But just be warned that it is somewhat sticky

Every Cloud Has A Silver (or Gold) Lining...
L'Oreal HiP high intensity pigments Kohl Eyeliner isn't exactly getting rave reviews ! I had to check it out myself...From the first second you open this Kohl Eyeliner your dealing with a flakey mess! Product everywhere ...on your bathroom counter ,cheek bone ,under your eye and in places I didn't know eyeliner could get into ! The Silver lining in this is that it wipes away quite effortlessly (I gently used my finger) L'Oreal HiP high intensity pigments Kohl Eyeliner goes on to give a Sultry Smokey look! I tried the Navy and the Gold,I especially like the Gold (stunning summer color) Stays put once it's on. The brush is a little stiff but for the price around $12.99 I have to say it's worth the trouble

Pretty HiP! This Lip Gloss junkie is impressod !!! HiP high intensity pigment Lip-gloss duos from L'Oreal High-level staying power and a perfect amount of Spark, Shine and Shimmer ! Not sticky at all (feels so dreamy)I tested this gloss out at the beach (stayed on after a swim!)and stayed put for hours after!!! I love the packaging and the ability to mix the two colors,Although mixing it can get messy the squeezable tube needs little improvement. Swanky is my favorite color out of the 20 to chose from. I love the subtle flavor too. For around $12 bucks your getting a gloss that feels like a $20 dollar one http://www.lorealparisusa.com/

Bananas have fruit acids that help remove dead skin cells, so a banana oatmeal mask is the perfect way to go when you want to brighten up your complexion. This is actually one of my favorite recipes!
What You’ll Need:
1 medium to large banana; soft and peeled
1/3 to 1/2 cup of oatmeal
Start by mashing the oatmeal into the soft peeled banana, going a little bit at a time. Apply to your face evenly and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse off with warm water or a warm washcloth.
You’ll immediately notice that your skin will feel softer, cleaner, and more radiant and bright.

Max Factor 2000 Calorie Extreme Mascara is well ...Extreme
Max Factor is really putting out some awesome new products! More and more their line is resembling department store brands ! Recently celebrating my 10th wedding Anniversary I had the perfect opportunity to try it out - Opening up the package I was completely impressed with the thick, spiky brush - Even more impressed once I started to apply . Lashes immediately started to look fatter ,fuller and longer with the patented Fat Wrap Brush grabbing on to every lash ...All this and No Clumping!!! Calorie Extreme Lash Plumper Mascara is a must have !!! And a beauty bargain too at $9.98 Available in 3 colors Extreme Blackout, Black Velvet and Blackest-Brown http://www.maxfactor.com/ http://www.drugstore.com/Max Factor Vivid Impact Lipcolor
Continuing on with my all-dolled-up look for my big evening out, I applied the Vivid Impact Lipcolor I was given Rose Rage #28 to review YAY! I love pink and pink is very hot this spring and summer! Again, smitten with the packaging, I was encouraged and hopeful Vivid Impact Lip color was going to live up to it's name (not to mention all the hype swirling around about it.) So close !!! I loved the moisture rich feel and the way the color stayed on and stayed put ... however I did not see a "vivid" color impact ! I still am crazy about longevity and shine ! I just think it's a bit sheer for it's name . Vivid Impact comes in a wide range of shades and is fabulously formulated. It has shea butter in it and my lips felt very pampered. Around $8
