Beauty Bit-OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum For Anti-Aging

 

FTC: I was given this bottle of OZ Naturals Hyaluronics Acid Moisturizing Serum by Brandbacker.com. This is an honest review.

You guys have to get this. It is a pretty smooth serum that has some great anti-aging properties. The ingredients are great too. No alcohols, sulfates, or parabens. It is $15.79 on Amazon, and they have prime shipping. I have been using this on my hands, and the skin definitely looks brighter. I am going to continue to use it. I put it on my face and hands before I moisturize, but after I use toner. I received this awesome product from Brandbacker.com.

Plus Size Clothing Line One One Three Is Back and Its Bangin’

 

one one threePlus size clothing line One One Three is back and it is bangin’!!!I don’t know if you remember One One Three, but I blogged about them here a few years ago. I have have always loved their clothes and style. I think they are edgy and fun. Tres cool y’all! You should check out their collection for the summer. The line features pants, tops, outerwear, and even swimsuits in that hot neon tropical Miami style that is super popular right now! The pieces are moderately priced and are UK sized 18-26. I think that should be a US 14-22. Photos from One One Three.

The Fall 2015 Couture Fashion Shows Are Giving Me All The Feels

Couture Fall 2015

From L to R: Valentino, Viktor & Rolf, Zuhair Murad, Christian Dior, Giambattista Valli, Elie Saab, Ulyana Sergeenko, and Alexis Mabille

I just want you all to know that I thoroughly enjoyed the fall 2015 couture fashion shows. They are giving me all the feels. Sometimes I am skeptical of what I see. Sometime designers either do too little or too much with couture. This season though… was amazing.

natural hair
I received these Schwarzkopf Ultime products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes a few weeks ago. I shot the unboxing video, but I didn’t get to post it. You can find these products exclusively at your local Walmart. Supermodel Claudia Schiffer helped create the line. I was worried that these products wouldn’t work on my natural African-American textured hair, but at least one of them did.

Beauty Bit- Instanatural Argan Oil and Instanatural Vitamin C Serum Review


FTC: I was sent the Argan Oil and the Vitamin C Serum from Instanatural and Brandbacker. This is an honest review.

Hey everyone! I received some more products from Instanatural. The InstaNatural Organic Argan Oil and the InstaNatural Vitamin C Serum 20% For Face – With Hyaluronic Acid, Ferulic Acid, Rosehip Oil, Seabuckthorn Oil & Vitamin E
. The argan oil is great for the skin and the hair. It takes the redness out of my stretch marks and moisturizes my skin and my hair. It also smells great too.

The vitamin c serum is an anti-aging product. When I used it with the argan oil on my face, my skin glowed. I never heard so many compliments on my skin before. The argan oil helped diminish dark spots on my skin and the vitamin c serum brightened my face.

I loved these products and highly recommend them. Actually I highly recommend Instanatural’s products because I haven’t found one that is bad yet, and I think I have tried about four or five of them.

FTC: This #TBT Style Icon With Boohoo.com post was done in conjunction with Boohoo.com. They also supplied the clothes.

Hey everyone. Can you guess what my #TBT Style Icon with boohoo.com is? Hint, hint. The name is in the title of this post. British retailer Boohoo.com told me to pick out some clothes and base them on one of my style icons for a #tbt or Throwback Thursday post. One of my favorite movies from the 90s is The Craft. I love the story of four teenage witches pick to live in a house with seven strangers….sorry. Sorry. Wrong show.

Beauty Bit- Unboxing My Winter 2014 Walmart Beauty Box

FTC: I paid for this Walmart Beauty Box myself. This is an honest review.

I love the items I received in my Winter 2014 Walmart Beauty Box. This box is one of the cheapest beauty boxes around because you only get charged $5 for shipping and handling four times a year. So four boxes are $20! Most beauty boxes will cost you $20 or more for one box. I could use or enjoy most of the items. I do have a problem with some of the samples. I can’t really use them because they are for lighter skin tones. :( Oh well. check out my unboxing video, and let me know what you think in the comments.

Beauty Bit- The Balm Nude Dude Eyeshadow Palette Review


FTC: I was sent The Balm Nude Dude Eyeshadow Palette from Kohls. This is an honest review.

Kohls recently sent me The Balm Nude Dude Eyeshadow Palette and I love it. The natural colors can be worn many different ways. You can also create looks for day and for night. I love that the eyeshadows are triple milled which mean that they are super smooth. They lasted a long time too. I used eyeshadow primer, but I think they would have lasted long regardless of my primer use because they just really laid on top of my eyelid. The color payoff is amazing too. I think this palette is going to serve me well.

Beauty Bit- Get the Perfect Fall Face With Maybelline Dream Wonder Liquid Foundation

I have been trying out the Maybelline Dream Wonder Liquid Foundation, and I think it is the perfect fall foundation. It is so light and airy on my face. It doesn’t feel thick at all. Actually I can’t feel it after it dries. It really is only for normal or oily skin. It leaves a matte finish, so if you have dry skin you will look like Casper. It is medium coverage. You can build it, but I wouldn’t put too much on if you don’t want to look like a ghost.When the right amount is on my face, my face glows and looks very natural. If I go a smidge over…I’m back to Casperville.

If you need to cover up some imperfections, just use some concealer. That is what I ended up doing. Another thing I did was our a little bit of the foundation out first and apply it with a brush. It is really loose and thin, so be careful and shake it up really well. The top of the bottle comes with a weird applicator. You are supposed to touch it with your fingers and then put it back on your face. That puts germs in your bottle, and that was the only con I could think of. I have found the Maybelline Dream Wonder Liquid Foundation in different stores for different prices. It is usually around $7 to $10 and you can always find Maybelline on sale. This is a great drugstore foundation. I recommend it.
