L’Oreal Brow Stylist Plumper



I bought this on a whim when I ran out of my Maybelline Clear Brow gel. I had seen “Essie Button” post about her favorite drugstore makeup on her blog and this was one of her favorites so I decided to give it a shot. 

This retails for around $9 depending on where you buy it.  

Here’s what L’oreal claims it does:

“Fill brows in an instant and hold hair in place with this easy-to-apply brow gel mascara. Formulated with a subtle tint, the gel adheres to even the finest hairs, leaving them fuller and more defined with a single application.”



Here’s what I think:

I love this stuff. The size of the brush is perfect and the formula is great! The gel keeps my curly brows in place all day long. The teeny tiny fibers in the tinted gel fill in the small gaps I have in my brows and make everything look seamless. I used to use a pencil and a clear gel and now I just use this. It’s so easy and fool-proof. I love it!

If you have major issues to work with, like scars or big gaps, this might not be the product for you but if you have fairly full brows and just want to make them look more uniform and keep them in place then you will love this stuff!

Have any of y’all used this? Let me know what you thought!

Favorite Winter Fragrances

IMG_1679

It gets so hot here in NOLA that I save a few fragrance favorites for the winter just because to me– they seem too heavy with the hot, humid, summer air. These are some of my all time favorites that I use every winter. (I am not great at describing scents so I’ll leave that to Sephora)

FullSizeRender-1

Balenciaga – Balenciaga Paris

As the scent opens, an airy bouquet of violets is set against the antique charm of dried petals found between the pages of a book. Traces of past memories turn to the present as a peppery note swells over a calm trace of mossy wood. A scent that breathes in the secret hours of night, it is mysterious and fragile—yet leaves a lasting trail.

Notes:
Violet Leaf, Pepper, Cedarwood, Patchouli, Vetiver.
Style:
Light. Mysterious. Antique.

I absolutely love this perfume. A little goes a long way and it lasts all day. The first time I ever sprayed this perfume on me I was shopping in Sephora. I sprayed one spray and didn’t think much of it– but as I was shopping around the mall, I kept getting whiffs of it and by the time I left the mall I was sold!

FullSizeRender

Jimmy Choo – Jimmy Choo

Luminous green top notes join a heart of rich and exotic tiger orchid and lingering base notes of sweet toffee and Indonesian patchouli to leave a sensual memory on the skin.

Notes:
Green, Tiger Orchid, Toffee, Sensual Indonesian Patchouli.
Style:
Feminine. Luxurious. Stylish.

This perfume smells so warm and cozy to me, that’s why I love wearing it in the fall/winter. I just love wearing this with a big, cozy, chunky sweater!

FullSizeRender-2

Chanel – Chance

A decidedly young scent for those who dare to dream. A light, subtly sensual fragrance, filled with vitality and energy, evolves from one moment to the next, each wholly unique. – (The Sephora website doesn’t list the notes for this one.)

This is a light scent but a little strong for during hot summer days. I do love this perfume for a night out though. This is definitely a “getting dressed up” perfume for me and the perfect complement to a fancy dress.

Something to definitely keep in mind is that each perfume will smell different on everyone. When I first sprayed the Balenciaga Paris perfume, I wasn’t impressed but as it meshed with my body chemistry I loved it more and more. Definitely go to the mall or your nearest department store and try them out on yourself before you invest.

Dry Winter Hands Remedy

IMG_1579

This time of year, if I’m not religiously moisturizing my hands, the winter can get the best of them. I try my best to moisturize every time I wash them but let’s be honest, it doesn’t always happen, and before you know it, your hands are dry and scaly. These are just a couple simple things you can do to get your hands back from the throws of winter skin.

Exfoliate.

First off, you need to exfoliate. I know this sounds like the last thing you would want to do to your poor, dry, irritated hands but trust me, you need to. If you don’t get that top layer of dry skin off, no matter how much moisturizer you put on top, it WILL NOT sink in. Now, you definitely don’t want to scrub harshly. Just lightly scrub your hands, rinse with lukewarm water, and pat them dry to prep them for the next step. A couple of my favorite hand/body scrubs are JR Watkins, Giovanni or even just some coconut oil and epsom salts mixed together would do the trick.

Moisturize.

– You want to pick a gentle lotion and apply it generously. Because you exfoliated off the top layer of skin, it will sink in beautifully. I would probably even do two layers of lotion. Some of my favorites are Nature’s Gate, Crabtree & Evelyn, Aveda, and Nourish Organic.

– Finally, I like to apply a cuticle cream/oil to my nails and cuticles to lock in the moisture even more. I love Crabtree & Evelyn and Burt’s Bees.

Products Mentioned.

Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

Nourish Organic Body Lotion Lavender Mint — 8 fl oz

J.R. Watkins Sugar and Shea Body Scrub, Lemon Cream, 8 Ounce

Aveda Replenishing Body Lotion

Crabtree & Evelyn Nail and Cuticle Cream

Giovanni D;tox System Purifying Body Scrub, (step 2), 6-Ounces (Pack of 2)

Valentine’s Pink Lip Favorites

I love any excuse to wear pink lipstick. Here my top 5 favorites for Valentine’s day!

image2 Tarte LipSurgence Matte Lip Tint in “Destined”

This is a gorgeous matte magenta color with the slightest hint of purple.

image6Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in “Pink Pop”

Even though this is just a gloss it is so pigmented you could totally just wear it alone if you don’t want a high maintenance lip.

image5Too Faced Melted Liquified Longwear Lipstick in “Melted Fuschia”

This is BRIGHT. It definitely pops off your face and I love it! Plus, the formula is so longwearing and comfortable on the lips.

image4Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in “Winterberry”

I almost didn’t put this in because it was from a limited edition holiday kit but it is one of my all time favorites so I couldn’t not mention it. The formula of this stuff is amazing and they have so many other gorgeous colors.

image3Revlon Colorstay Colorburst Lacquer Balm in “Vivacious”

This is so moisturizing and pigmented. It looks just like the outside of the tube. Revlon definitely got it right with this one.

What are some of your favorite pink lip products? Let me know in the comments. I’ll be back on Wednesday with my top 5 picks for red lips!
