Review: L'Oreal Paris Hydra Genius

Company: L'Oreal Paris
Item: Hydra Genius
Size: 3.04 FL. OZ
What is it: Daily face moisturizer for Dry/Normal skin
Where to find it: L'Oreal
Stars: 5 Stars

Review: First thing I want to say is this... I am extremely sensitive to smells, I always have been. I absolutely love the smell of this product! Some of my more favorite smells are kind of earthy or manly smells. I can handle floral, spice and fruit smells for only a short time. You know when you find a smell of something and you want it everywhere? That is kind of how I feel about this moisturizer.
On another note though I could instantly see how well this moisturized my face. It is almost like it woke my face up! I love it. My face is soft. I cannot wait to see how it feels and works with my makeup routine. Update: Over 12 hours later and my face still feels fresh and amazing,

Review: Meg: Twin Nail: Lovey Dovey: LIMITED EDITION!

Product: Meg: Twin Nail: Lovey Dovey
Stars: 5
Where you can find it: Meg

Review: I absolutely love this nail polish!! I was a little afraid when I got it in my Ipsy bag. The nail polish doesn't dry too quickly, it looks really good.  I have had some where they dry before I can even get a second swipe in. This is amazing. It shines so beautifully. I can't wait to see how long it goes with out chipping. I am beyond satisfied with this product.

Review: Ipsy monthly subscription

Hello lovelies,

This was my first month with Ipsy. I was more than a little scared while waiting to see what I would be given.
All wonderful products in which I received. I am however a very picky person. Going into this I knew how much I hate blue as eye makup. Mind you blue is my favorite color. I was never able to actually wear it in makeup. I just so happened to receive a blue gel eye liner from Color Pop. The eye liner didn't really go on well or easy. I actually broke it trying to get it in my eye. I was determined to not let it be a waste and still got it on my lids. Lets just say I know that for my eyes and skin the gel liner is not for me. Next we go to the OFRA Rendezvous blush, although it was a bit dark for my tatse I absolutely loved the blush. I wish I had gotten it in full size rather than the eyeliner. In this bag I also got Elizabeth motts show me your glitter highlighter/eye shadow, I also loved this product. It isn't sticky and uncomfortable in any way. It has a beautiful shimmer to it and it doesn't make me feel like I am wearing something I shouldn't be. I got Meg nail polish. It was a cool little two pack. They were pretty basic colors that I would generally never buy for myself. I am very excited to give them a shot though. Last and not least in this months bag I received Theorie Marula Oil, I have never really used many serums in my hair previously. I do love that you can put it in your hair wet or dry. I have found the best results when putting it in my hair when it is already dry. I am personally not a fan of the bag itself either. Kind of ugly.

All in all for this bag I would say there were products I enjoyed. It was unfortunate that the only full size product is one that I will more than likely never use again.

Review: Mary Kay matte-wear liquid foundation

Product: Mary Kay Matte-wear liquid foundation
Size: 1 FL OZ
Stars: 4
Link: Mary Kay

Review: I have to be honest I have only tried a few different foundations but this is by far one of my favorite ones. The problem is I don't like having to go through their process to get the look. I want to be able to just put on my foundation and go from there. If I don't follow the steps my face tends to not be as soft, not covered as well and I seem to break out more. I want to try out a cream foundation to see if it would cover my acne marks a bit better. But for a liquid foundation this is definitely up there for me.

I have attached two pictures one is the product itself. The other is of my Mary Kay rep and my sister in law and I after a small makeover day!
