NUDESTIX

When  I was asked to review Nudestix, I of course said yes.

I said yes because it was makeup, why not? When I received my package with the products to be reviewed, I was pretty impressed immediately. The packaging of the products are in a small metal tin with a mirror inside of the lid. CUTE! This little tin fits in your purse perfectly & you can add more than one product in each tin. I even had two to spare to use for my other beauty tools. I put my eyebrow grooming tools in one and Q-tips in another.

The first product I am going to review is the concealer pencil. I have come across a lot of concealers and I have to say that I loooooove this ONE! It’s perfect! I received this a month ago and I have used it every single day. I use it to cover any dark spots and blemishes and a little under my eyes. All of their products are in pencil form (STIX) and it is just so easy to work with and always have on hand in one of those cute little tins. The creaminess of this product is what I love most and it is easy to blend with your fingers. Saves you tons of time, you do not have to whip out the concealer brush on top of the concealer. I can go on and on about this product but you will have to try it for yourself to see. It does have a sheer coverage so I am not sure how it might work on dark circles. The picture down below is at least three swatches to show the true color.

Next, the Eye Pencil.
I was 50/50 with this pencil.  This product doesn’t stay on long. I noticed maybe after three to four hours the colors had started to wear off. I do like the concept of the pencils which cuts down time on application. The best thing about these shadows are that they are creamy and easy to blend, with no clumps at all. This product is good for those who do not want to be too made up. The colors I received were Pewter + Smoke.

Next, The Lip + Cheek Pen
I received two of these in the Colors LOVE & SIN.

LOVE- It is a really nice nude pink. I like the color too much! The pencil is already half way gone after wearing everyday for at least three weeks. BUMMER though…because if I wanted another one, I would have to pay $24 and I am not really feeling that to be honest. I can get another Lipstick that is not as pricey and get the same quality or better. I reapply often due to it not really lasting, even after just one cup of coffee.

SIN-eh, I did not like this color at all ..

Next, The Matte Lip Pen in Hypnotic
Typically anything Matte looks and feels Dry. This does not.
My lips feel soft and it lasted me 5 hours. That is GREAT! Better then the Lip + Cheek!
I am not crazy about this color but I wouldn’t mind trying out a Nude or Mauve.

Instantly Achieve Beautiful Curls with the KISS InstaWave

The Kiss InstaWave is an automatic curler that creates beautiful, long-lasting curls with ease. No need to be a pro, simply place a section of hair on the InstaWave and leave the rest of the curling to us. With the touch of a button, the Curl Dial Instantly and Automatically catches and curls hair. It is supposed to  transform your straight locks into tangle-free glamorous curls in seconds. I used it for the past week and I love it. My daughter and I both tried it actually and we both have thick hair. It took me a while to review this product because I was having a hard time at first learning how to use this product, there is a bit of a learning curve. Video link is down below for those who want to know how to use it and see the results as well. The curls lasted me two days.

I Love Influenster

I recently downloaded the application in the App Store for Influenster. Many of you may not know what Influenster is. It’s a place where the blogging community share their reviews from books to electronics to brand names. You can review any and everything. The more you review, ask and answer questions you get selected to complete surveys to see if you qualify for a VoxBox. Each VoxBox has a theme, and the members receive a favorable full size product to try and then post their honest opinion about the item all over social media.

Recently, they just reinvented the website and brought The Hub, which features articles written by Instagram members. Influenster lets you flex your social media influence and earn rewards. Now I LOVE that they have an App for iPhone and Android users. I was falling behind with Influenster because with three kids, sitting at a computer for hours is impossible. I just started using it but I am most definitely going to use this app always! Who doesn’t want to earn free stuff? Um…I do NOT mind.

I have reviewed many things from food to the type of laundry detergent I use. We all know my favorite subject to blog about is ……drum roll please…….YES, BEAUTY!!!! The was actually the first badge I earned on Influenster-BEAUTY QUEEN (I’d like to agree). Badges help increase your influenster score. You earn the badges by answering surveys and questions. Like I previously stated, the badges are themed such as Fashion Lover, Mother Bear and Beauty Queen.

My favorite VoxBox that I have received from Influenster was the UniVoxBox. At the time that I received this voxbox I was enrolled in college. The UniVoxBox was the most fun I had in my Influenster history. My favorite product in that VoxBox honesty is the Pilot Acroball Pen. I had to made a video for it.

I received more products in that box and you can read my reviews here

Influenster also gives you VoxPerks, they are coupons and offers for services or products. Pretty Neat and I find some great new things. Its amazing the things and ideas that people have. I discovered WeMontage, they make removable photo wall stickers and wallpaper.

You can find all the programs I participated with Influenster here

Makeup by ONE DIRECTION


So I signed up for this campaign on BrandBacker. I have to be 100% honest, I do not like this line of makeup at all. I wouldn’t give this to anyone, not even a teenager. Nothing last long and the quality is poor. I am disappointed.
