Paula Dorf Lipstick and Blush Review

 Paul Dorf Lipstick in Legend $22 here and blush in Passion here $23

Legend is the absolute perfect shade of red lipstick. I have at least 100 lipsticks in my collection (professional and personal) and at least 25 of those are red. This has been my go to red, because it is super pigmented but without being drying. Finding a long lasting red lipstick that is not drying is harder than you might think. You can see this nice finish it's moisturizing without being sticky and the exact shade of red that I always look for. It's the perfect shade of red!

Passion is a nice flush of color, but on my pale skin it just didn't work very well. I felt like because it is so pigmented that it made me look overly flushed. It is a great quality and long lasting, you have to use it very light handed, because it is such a great quality blush. I loved it, and in a different shade I would be all about wearing it. This is one that will go in my kit and for the right bride this will be perfection on her.

If you might be interested in seeing a top 5 red lipstick post let me know!

Pretty in Pink-A Few of my favorite Pink Beauty Products!

Andalou 1000 Roses Floral Toner-$12.99 here online.

If you are  fan of facial sprays and love the scent of roses, you need this product. It leaves my skin feeling so soft, and I even spray it in my hair. I love the scent of roses, so it lingers in my hair and makes it smell so good! I have been a fan of rose water sprays for sometime now, and I can just add this one to my list.  

 Milani Lip Intense Liquid Color in Pink Rave $6.49 here or anywhere Milani is sold!
This is not a lip product for the faint of heart. You are getting a lot of color packed into a small package. I was blown away by how pigmented this product is. I love that it stays on my lips, and it also stains so even after the gloss is gone, you still have color on your lips. This is my perfect shade, I love hot pink anytime of year. This is not sticky, and doesn't have a distracting scent which are 2 positive things in my book. I will be grabbing other shades, these just scream Spring to me!
 Wet and Wild Angels in Aubergine here or wherever you buy your Wet N Wild $3.99
I wish this palette had been in my life sooner. It is so pigmented and easy to work with, I have combined pretty much every shade in the palette to create different looks. Let me know if you want a blog tutorial or a youtube video with this palette! The shade that is suppose to be the definer, is so pretty it reminds me a lot of cranberry from MAC. I have just been using it all over my lid without any other shadow, and just a highlight. I think it will look great on anyone but if you have blue/green eyes this is that shade you want to make the eyes pop.

These are just a few products that I have been trying out and they just stood out to me. They all also happened to be pink-ish so I went with it. Hope you found some new products to try. Thanks for stopping by! Let me know what you think, if you have tried any of these out.

These were given to me by my beauty bestie Amber over at http://www.daydreamingbeauty.com

Evian Facial Spray Review

Evian Facial Spray 10oz for $17.50 at Drugstore.com

Wake-up your skin and senses with Evian® Facial Spray!  Used daily, Evian® Facial Spray increases your skin hydration*, helps to fix make-up and offers you constant freshness and purity.  From the French Alps, Evian® natural mineral water has a balanced mineral composition and a neutral pH suiting all skin types.

I have used different types of facial sprays, and facial water sprays. I have small bottles of this in my Zuca Bag for weddings. It's so refreshing, especially imagine getting your makeup done in the middle of summer in the south. You just spray your face with this and it helps keep your makeup looking fresh without being cakey. It works great for me because I have combination skin, and it keeps any dryness looking smooth. I also love to wear bare minerals, and powder foundations this works great. I spray my brush first with this spray and then I spray my face after my makeup is done. 

If you are looking for a refreshing facial spray, I suggest you give this one a try. It comes in all sizes for everyone's price range. You will feel refreshed and be glad you grabbed this when you had the chance heh.

Insta Naturals Vitamin C Skincare Review

Insta Natural Vitamin C Toner and Vitamin C Moisturizer can be found here online!

I have had these products for months now, and I am happy to say that Insta Naturals has some amazing products. I know they will be showing up all over, very soon. This Vitamin C Toner is so amazing, it helps keep my skin clear and gives it a nice glow. I love this, and already can tell you that it will be a repurchase when it's empty. The moisturizer is also lovely, and light without clogging my pores. I just need a moisturizer that won't break me out and will actually hydrate my tired skin. This product is used every morning, when I get out of the shower. I like it,but is it life changing for me, no. I haven't noticed any differences with this product like i have with the toner. However, it is a nice moisturizer and does it's job I am just not blown away by it.

 I have troublesome skin, as I mention in every skincare review. I do love that it didn't break me out or cause any issues with my skin. It just didn't wow me, although it do it's job being a moisturizer. I think maybe with how taken away by the Toner I was I just expected results a lot faster with this product also. I will continue to use it up to the very end and if I notice a difference I will let you know!

Hyperbiotics Vitamins Review

You can get your PRO-15 here or on Amazon.com for $30
You can get your PRO-Immune here or on Amazon.com for $22

I wanted to be sure that I tried both of these out for awhile before giving you a full review. I took the entire bottle of the Pro-15 myself and the husband took half of the Pro-Immune with me. 

Pro-15 you only take 1 table a day unless you are in need of intense repair, maybe you just came off antibiotics or other harsh treatments you would take as suggested. I am a vegan and I make a point to buy fermented foods,and anything that offers probiotics. With taking this one pill a day, I didn't worry about it so much. I can say honestly that I felt like any stomach issues I was having or had in the past seem to ease up or go away. I am a big fan of pro biotics but the other brands I have tried required me to take 2-3 several times a day and I just wouldn't remember so I didn't notice any results. I will be repurchasing these because in only the short period of time I have been taking these my digestive system is a lot happier.

PRO-Immune you take 2 tables a day with or without food. Which is also great because sometimes I just like to take my vitamins first thing in the morning, or if I forget I take them in the car. So if haven't eaten I like to know that it's okay to take them. My hubby started taking these before I did and in all honesty he probably took more than I did. He works in a field where he is exposed to a lot of people from all walks of life and we don't want him exposing his clients to the flu or anything else they can't fight off. Plus I was taking all online classes so I wasn't really being exposed as much as he was. He actually told me that he wanted to buy more because thankfully (knock on wood),neither of us have had so much as a sniffle. Last year by this time I had the flu once and 2 head colds. We are hoping to make it a record year for neither of us getting sick.

These vitamins are worth the money because you are getting a higher quality and it shows by not having to take 6-9 pills a day you can take 1 or 2 in the morning and be done with it. They will last you longer, and help you more because you remember to take them all at one time in the morning!
 These were sent to me for review, but I will do a follow up post or share a photo when I place my new order so you know that I truly do think these have helped our family out.
