Where Have I been? Why I will be MIA

Sorry for my lack of post, and my lack of involvement in blogs and twitter conversations :)
I had stated that the hubby and I had gotten sick, and then after I started feeling better I had some trial makeup jobs and all that fun stuff. You know household stuff you put off when you don't feel good and then it hits you the day you feel like doing anything.

The hubby and I are off on a vacation to New York! We will be seeing and doing a lot but the thing that I am most excited about it going to the Farm Sanctuary!

Just a little information about them, they rescue animals of all kinds, so they are not put down. They let the animals live a nice long life, roaming free on 175 acres and not cooped up the way they should be.If you know anything about me, you know that I love my animals. Being vegetarian for 16years and a vegan for 3 years total off and on. I am currently a vegan and plan on being one for the rest of my life. Animal rescue has been something that matters a lot to me and touches my heart. To be able to go and tour this farm,and to see these beautiful animals makes me happier than any makeup or beauty product in the world. Lord know I love my makeup :)

I want to share a few photos of the Farm Sanctuary and when I can I will upload pictures of the trip! We leave Friday night or Saturday morning and will be back the following weekend. I will update with personal photos but no reviews or anything will be uploaded for a week. The hubby and I have lots of fun things planned on our trip, and I want to share those with you!

Adovia Dead Sea Minerals -A Review



I was super excited to try out these products because they are good for acne prone skin. Although, I think all 3 of these products are great the Mud Mask and the Mud Soap were my 2 favorite products.


I used the mud mask a few times a week, and some nights just on my breakouts. I used the soap every night to cleanse my skin before bed, and then I would use the mask. I noticed after about 3 days of using these items together that my pores were smaller and I had less oil. My skin is a crazy combination of dry and oily t-zone.  Plus we all know that I still suffer from acne,breakouts and it is always a constant battle to find something to keep my skin clear.

I truly enjoyed these products and their end results for my skin have been great. If you suffer from oily skin,or happen to be acne prone I would give these products a try. They were not harsh on my skin which a lot of acne products are. You just are just left with a clean feeling, no dryness or residue.

The mineral serum was a nice product, and I used it on my dry skin. It served its purpose, but I was so focused on the other 2 amazing products I didn't really give it much thought. It is a nice thin moisturizer that does not clog up your pores.

Be sure to check out http://www.cleopatraschoice.com/
for all these amazing products and more.

I did receive these products for review consideration, that does not change my opinion on these products.I am always honest in my reviews!

Born Pretty-Leopard Bow Glasses Review

Frame Light Leopard Bowknot Glasses No Lens -Red

The direct link to these adorable glasses is here on BornPrettyStore.com

I havw seen these glasses in stores at the mall but they were wanting up to $20 for them. However, I am a lover of Hello Kitty and all things animal print and when I saw them on BornPrettyStore.com I thought I gotta have them. On their website, they are less than $5, that's right LESS than $5 for these glasses.

I enjoy these not only because they are super cute, but they do not have lenses in them. I am someone who wears actual glasses so these just for fun are great without lenses. I must tell you that if you buy these and wear them, you will be asked 100 times where you got them. I have been lucky enough to do some fun makeup gigs recently and wore these, they were a big hit. 

I love BornPretty.com because they have so many amazing items, for such a reasonable price. The shipping was fast, and I am more than pleased with the product. If you want to buy these glasses or anything else please use this code and get 5% off

Bikini Kitty-Review


This trio helps stop ingrown hairs,nicking yourself while shaving and get a nice clean shave. This kit also comes with 2 single blade razors,which came with a little card that stated single razors are better for your skin and closer shave. I used those so they are not pictured, and you can imagine what they look like.

The nice and creamy Shave Gel

The Body brush to exfoliate (I left it on my tub and the puppy ate it note teeth marks)


I was really excited to try this set out because it's that time of year where its appropriate to wear shorts. It just bypassed nice and breezy to HOT. I really liked this kit as a whole because it's not just shave gel it's everything you need for a good close shave. Plus you use the body brush to exfoliate and your legs just feel so much nicer after you use it.

I also like this product because it's reasonably priced, and you get a lot for $30. I have used this many times and I am not nearing halfway on the products. They are also natural and organic ingredients so you don't have to be concerned with chemicals. The No Nick Oil is really a great product as well because you get a nice silky shave, which leads to no nicks. It also helps moisturize the legs too, which is always a nice touch.

I did receive this product for review consideration, but I truly did enjoy using it. Stay tuned on Monday because they are offering my readers a giveaway! I will have the details for that up on Monday and you will get your chance at these goodies.

See you on Monday for the giveaway!

Philosophy at Big Lots HAUL!

I stopped in Big Lots today and when I went to their makeup section I was amazed at what I saw. Now don't get me wrong I saw a youtube video about it being at Big Lots. However, my Big Lots is usually pretty  pathetic in the makeup area. 

I picked up 6 items (2) the exact same so no need to picture it. They were all $3 a piece, yes Philosophy makeup for $3 Shut Up! :) As far as I can tell some of these items are still available on Philosophy's website!

This is what I got

You Make Me Blush-Sunny and Bright originally $25 

Eye Shadow Palette in Box of Truffles $28

Eye Shadow Palette in Plum Delicious

Shimmering Face Powder -Amazing Grace $20

Heavenly Light Pink Illuminator $24

They had a lot of other products like cream blushes,eye shadow duo's,lip gloss trios, a set of 6 a mix of blushes,lip glosses,and eye shadows,foundation and mineral bronzers, and they had brushes.

I skipped on a few items because they had SO many of them. I can go back and get them later I wanted to get these because it was already thinned out. There were 3 eye shadow sets left and 1 was broken.  They also have some Calvin Klein makeup it was all just too dark for me. It was all $8 but for foundation that is not a bad deal.

This is not a swatch, or review post I just wanted to let you know ! So go get you some and let me know what you love!

I want to give credit where it is due and here is how I found out about it

The Beautiful People an Interview with Taygan

I am a huge fan of Taygan not only is she beautiful but she is one of the sweetest beauty bloggers I have gotten to know in my past year of blogging. If you aren't following her please go now! (after you read this interview of course)

@MontserGirl on Twitter





1.Have you always been into beauty and makeup or is this something that has increased since the boom of the beauty community online. (Such as beauty blogs,youtube and all that fun stuff) When did you first get interested in it?
    
   I have always been a girlie girl with makeup and hair products since I was young but didn't really get into it until my early 20s. Blogging has really opened new doors to learning so much about the beauty world. 

2.What inspires you? In your makeup looks,fashion choices?


Honestly mostly blogs or Youtube, since I find magazines or advertizing too unrealistic for me and it's nice to know real people who I actually talk to can inspire me for new looks.

3.Is there a celebrity that makeup you admire or fashion you would steal?


This is probably the most boring answer but I Love Mila Kunis look, she is so gorgeous and doesn't look over the top. I like the more natural look. 

4.What are your current Holy Grail items?


Urban Decay Primer potion is a MUST! My Naked palette, L'oreal Voluminous mascara and Lip gloss is a must!



5.Is there a trend that you just don't understand?

ughhh the wet greasy hair look! I just saw something about it on Style.com and I don't find that attractive at all!

6.Do you listen to a certain type of music or band while you are getting ready? Tell us who or what it is any maybe why?


I listen to music practically 24/7 so I alwayyyys have music on while getting ready. My faves to listen too are Blink 182,A Day To Remember, The Used and Nicki Minaj, 

7.Tell us a little more about you


Just a boring old Canadian girl who loves beauty,photography,tattoos and longboarding =) 

8.Why is your beauty blog different than others? Where can we find you on the internet (twitter,facebook all those social 
networking places)

hmmm that is a good question, Maybe mine is different because I am seriously clueless with beauty but always am trying new products and like to talk about it. I am just a regular girl with no real skill so maybe it is relatable to others?
My FAVORITE place to be online now is definitely Instagram and Twitter-Montsergirl


9.Where do you see yourself in 5yrs with the beauty blog and IRL outside of the beauty blog?


Hopefully living the dream on my own island somewhere ;) ha!   

10.Thanks a lot for doing this interview with me, you know I have been a huge fan of yours Taygan from the start! Is there anything you would like to add?
That is far too sweet! You were one of the first blogs I found when I started blogging and I am happy that we have kept in touch!

Ohh and hopefully my answers aren't toooo boring.

AnnaLynne McCord without makeup -Twitter Picture


AnnaLynne McCord may be best known for her appearances on Nip/Tuck and staring in the CW 90210 series. She recently posted this picture of herself on twitter, declaring

"I woke up this morning and decided I am over Hollywood's perfection requirement. To all my girls(and boys) who have been embarrassed by their skin! I salute you! I am not perfect- and that's okay with me!"

As someone who suffers with acne and breakouts it's nice to see even the beautiful people do too :)


Just thought I would share for those who do not follow her on twitter.

Have a great weekend!


L.A. Colors Trio in Iris-Swatches


Iris Trio from L.A. Colors-$1

When I was at Dollar General the other day I saw this new little set next to the Wet and Wild stuff I was looking at.  They had 3 different color trio's but I love purples so I went with this one. They were only $1 each so I could have gotten all 3 but the last thing I need is more drugstore eye shadow I don't use.

However, this turned out to surprise me even more than I thought. I have other L.A. Color eye shadows that are sitting in a drawer not being used. This is very pretty wet or dry, and I can see myself reaching for this palette. I will make a little trip in to pick up the other 2 because I like this one so much. I hadn't seen these anywhere else but I know Dollar Tree usually has L.A. Color stuff so check there too.

If you use a good primer, even the $1 eye shadows will stay all day. So have you tried these trios yet? If you do let me know! I am thinking about doing an eye look with these. 

As always leave me a comment! I love to hear from you.

TOM's Shoe's replica's for $6


I was in Dollar General just killing time really and I saw these shoes on the end of an aisle. I saw they had sold out of all but 1 Hot Pink. They had Navy,Grey,Black and White polka dots and the Hot Pink.

Now I am a BIG supporter of Tom's shoes and what they stand for but my pocket book does not support $50 a pair of shoes. I have enough addictions with makeup,hair,beauty,living healthy,and fashion! Trust me my sister buys enough Tom's shoes for all of us :) So understand I know that your paying for quality,and you are paying to give children shoes(I get it). 

If you have the money please go support them, and buy to your hearts content. This is just a fun post about finding these shoes for $6 and if you don't have huge feet like me you might get all the colors. So head out to your local Dollar General and let me know what you find!

Sesderma A Skincare Routine & Review



Nice consistency and good lather

My Review: This product works great for my acne prone skin. I use it morning and night after I use makeup remover wipes. It does not make me skin feel dry it is just a nice face wash that helps keep my acne at bay.



My review:You can immediately tell this is not your drugstore face scrub. The amount of micro beads that cleanse your face is amazing. Plus, having tried every scrub for acne prone skin I know that they are usually abrasive or they have no scrub at all. This product is high quality you need only gently make circular motions , because of the amount of micro beads. I love this and use it only a few times a week, it has helped with the texture of my skin. 


Thick and creamy and smells great!

My review:
I love masks, my husband never knows what I will look like coming out of the bathroom at night heh. This product not only has a pleasant smell again is one that you can tell is not just your average mask.  I leave it on for 10-15 minutes and then wash it off. It leaves my skin feeling great, and is helping bring that youthful glow back to my skin. Suffering from Acne can put a damper on your glowing skin, but I feel like using these products together can get me there.


These products were sent to me for review consideration. As always I am honest about these products,and it never affects my opinion.I honestly love these items and feel they are worth every penny!
