Studio Gear Cosmetics is a prestigous cosmetics brand featuring a full collection of professional makeup brushes, revolutionalizing complexion formulas, and a wide selection of color products for the eyes, cheeks, and lips. This is a line created true to the concept that every woman deserves professional, high quality cosmetics at a reasonable price.

I recently was offered to do a campaign with BrandBracker on Studio Gear’s Hydrating CC Cream.

I of course accepted.

The Hydrating CC Cream is said to transform & enhance your complexion with this light and smooth formula. This foundation simultaneously fights aging, retains moisture, and covers and treats blemishes with a non-oily, perfectly radiant finish.

When I first squeezed some of the product onto my hands, I was afraid to apply it. Although I am fair skinned, I thought I would end up looking like a ghost. Well there are little pigments in the cream that makes it adapt to your own skin tone

I like the cc cream. It’s light and airy. Great for light coverage. My face looked the same 4 hours later, but by the 6 hour mark, I needed a few touch ups. Very little is needed and make sure to apply your makeup in natural lighting because you might put on too much thinking you aren’t applying anything. Give it a minute or two before you reach for more or for concealer. 

In the pic I only used the cc cream and of course my eye makeup and then lips. photo 3

I love Influenster. I review so many different things all the time and Influenster rewards you for it. I was chosen to review a few things and you will read them down below. Influenster gives you tasks to perform for each product. The first thing they want you to do is record you opening the box and revealing the items (Unboxing). I have plenty videos, except WordPress wants me to pay $60.00 in order to embed a video. I am none to happy about that. I decided to upload them to YouTube and you can see them there. Sorry.
So lets begin…
Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation
I did not think that I would like this foundation. I am glad that I was able to test it out because I am in love. Best part is that it is inexpensive. I love a matte look. This stood on for 8 hours and it was perfect! Makes you think twice before spending a lot of money on a foundation with empty promises. I have recommended this to many family members and friends. I recommend you get it too.
NYC New York Color Expert Last Lipstick
The only NYC makeup Product I had ever tried were the loose eyeshadows and I am not a fan of those. I do love this lipstick though. I swatched it on my hand, lets say at 4pm on Friday afternoon and on Saturday morning there was still some left. My sister loved the color. I told her to buy it because it was no more than $5. Well, I went to CVS and I saw the lipsticks there and they were $1.99. This is a steal!! If you like any of the colors they sell, I would totally recommend that you go out and buy one or some. A woman can never have enough lipsticks.
Red Rose Real Tea Premium Water Enhancers
I normally don’t drink tea and wasn’t too excited that I received this product from Influenster. I received the Blackcurrant Raspberry and my daughter and I tried it. We loved it! I’m actually quite surprised! This is convenient for me since I am always on the go to work and then to my classes. Give it a try, you won’t understand until you try it. Click here for video.
Pilot Acroball Pure WhitePilot Pen
I had to make a video for this one as well and I actually had fun. The pen writes nice and neat. Doesn’t leave marks on my hand after writing on paper. This voxbox was intended for college students so a pen would make sense. I went to buy more but no luck so far. Click here for video.
Broadway Nails imPRESS ManicuresBroadway Nails
My daughter used them because my nail bed was too big.  The nails lasted two days for my daughter, we were hoping it would last a week at least. Nonetheless, cheap and good for tweens. It was the first time I let her use nails so she was thrilled either way. The design was cute but not for me.
Playtex Sport Fresh Balance Sport & Gentle Glide
Ok I know this is odd but it was in my box and I must review. Funny part is I had to record myself active and tag Playtex. I am sure my instagram friends were happy to know that these were super comfortable, especially the men. Nonetheless, I did it. So now for the review..
First & foremost I only use Playtex! They are the most comfortable. I have tried other brands that claim to be comfortable for those with an active lifestyle but they don’t compare. Playtex has always been the most comfortable & secure. Click here for video.



Thanks Influenster! #univoxbox RULES

Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel

I have both this and the dip-brow pomade gel. I like the pomade for special occasions or on a date night with the hubby. However, I like to use the Tinted Brow Gel in Brunette. It is amazing. It definitely fills in the few gaps I have and makes my eyebrows appear fuller. I personally do not need a lot. I go my eyebrows once and that is it. Combs it into place and very natural looking.Tinted Brow in Brunette

Fitness Parties Rock!

My daughter just turned 5 and instead of doing the usual bowling alley, indoor/outdoor party, makeover or sleep over we decided to throw her a fitness party!

Every now and then if I can’t find a sitter my daughter joins me at my weightlifting sessions and she’s always on the sidelines mimicking everyone and doing her own sets of lunges, push ups and squats. She absolutely loves everything about coming to the gym with mommy, so I knew she would absolutely LOVE this idea over the others and she did, without hesitation. I asked my coach if they would help me host a fitness party for my daughter and without a flinch she said, “Yes!”

The party was pretty easy to put together, Coach Dani set up an obstacle course with ring flips, box jumps, bear crawls and burpees and each kid had to do sets of 10 at each station. After the obstacle course my sister put on a little dance party followed by a fun game of musical chairs & the limbo. I provided healthy snacks such as peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on wheat, fruit trays and veggies trays and I made “mud” sugar free pudding. We ended the party with the usual cake and presents and every kid left there saying it was the best party they have ever been to!

I’ve been on my fitness journey for a year now and I love how it’s not only changing my life, but my families life too. Nadia is more active just because she sees me more active and I’ve already signed her up for her first race in March. My husband has started running again and once a week Nadia and him play basketball together and we all eat better as a whole.

If you want to host a fitness party for your child I would contact different fitness centers in your area and ask if they would be willing to help you put together a fitness party. I’m sure there are plenty of places that would be more than happy to help!

I have to give a big thank you to my gym “Cain Athletics” in North Platte, Nebraska for hosting this awesome party and a special shout out to our Coach Dani for rocking it out with the kiddos and my sister for dancing it up with them as well!
