Spoiled Neon “Tip Your Waitress” by Wet n Wild

15 Aug

Tip Your Waitress

August To-Do List

 I am getting my August to-do list ticked off and this is one to-do list that is not causing stress, in fact it is making me feel light on my feet and has me more than excited!

 Task: Paint my nails a neon hue

The only hard thing about this “to-do” was finding the neon shade I wanted! I decided to test out a brand I had never tried before so went to my local CVS and spotted Spoiled by Wet n Wild, exclusive to the store.

There were several neon hues and I settled on SO11 called Tip Your Waitress, a bright pink that part reminds me of my childhood Barbie and partly of a hot summer vacation!

Tip Your Waitress

  • One of the best neon hues I have ever worn and I have tested out a few including neon yellows, oranges and greens.
  • Fantastic for both finger nails and toe nails.
  • BARGAIN PRICE, $1.99!! 
  • I am actually still in shock over the $1.99 price tag, never have I found such good quality nail polish for such an amazing bargain price! This is definitely one brand I will be buying more of!

SPOILED by Wet n Wild

Exclusive to CVS stores across America, 72 shades are currently available. All colors are toluene, phthalate and form-aldehyde free. Follow @wetnwildbeauty or follow CVS Stores @CVS_Extra

Which will you wear this month?

2012 nails: imPRESS Press-on Manicure

6 Jan

imPRESS Space Cadet Press-on Manicure set received complimentary to test through Influenster's VoxBox program

This year make your beauty routine easier, save time and money with imPRESS Press-on Manicure sets by Broadway Nails.

I recently received the D090 Space Cadet pattern (a black and white leopard print with glitter) to test through Influenster’s VoxBox program and am so glad as not only do they save time when making nails look salon ready at home, they also:

  • last up to a week, often longer (meaning more time spent on other things rather than your nails)
  • do not smudge whilst drying and do not chip when dry (resulting in a more salon ready look)
  • are easily applied, via a stick on process (able to apply these yourself at home in minutes)
  • make nails look smooth, shiny and clean around the edges so no more messy applications (get the salon look yourself in the comfort of your home for much less money)
  • due to the press on application there are no fumes (making the imPRESS Press-on Manicure set perfect for pregnant women or those sensitive to strong smells)

Easy To Apply

Each set comes with 24 nail covers so you have plenty of spares just in-case you want to restart.

  1. Find the correct size nail cover for each of your nails (tab on imPRESS nails is always lined with cuticle) and line them up in finger order.
  2. Cleanse your natural nail bed with the prep pad enclosed.
  3. Peel off tab on imPRESS nail and firmly press onto your natural nails. Apply pressure for a few seconds and you are done!*

*I have naturally long nails and did not want to cut/file them too short so after applying the imPRESS Press-on Manicure set I simply filed my natural nails down to the long length of nails found in the imPRESS set. A bonus was this made my natural nails all the same length!

Easy To Remove

  1. Apply nail polish remover to the edges of each nail, wait for one minute and gently peel off the imPRESS set starting from the sides.

Montagne Jeunesse Face Masque Review

30 Dec

When you need a little pampering and some down time for yourself apply a face masque and you are set!

Montagne Jeunesse was sent to me to test through Influensters VoxBox program and I am hooked!

I tested the Strawberry Souffle masque and not only did it smell delicious (it was almost good enough to eat!) but the masque left my skin looking smooth, getting rid of the black heads.

The application is easy and takes little time:

  1. Clean and dry face so all makeup is removed.
  2. Apply evenly to face and neck area, avoiding getting too close to your eyes.
  3. Relax and lie down for 15-20 minutes (lying down is optional but a great excuse to just close your eyes and rest).
  4. Using a wet face towel gently rub off the masque or rinse with warm water, make sure to get all the masque off as some contain little fruit pieces so may leave some residue.

Skin instantly feels cleaner, smoother and revitalized!

Another fabulous fact about the Montagne Jeunesse masques is that they are free of parabens, vegetarian approved and never tested on animals so have some guilt free beauty time.

Plus the masques are reasonably priced, making them budget friendly so get shopping!

Montagne Jeunesse masques are currently available at ULTA Beauty, Walgreen’s, Claire’s, Walmart, Kroger, CVS and can be found in a variety of flavors/smells including:

  • Strawberry Souffle
  • Cucumber Peel Off
  • Passion Peel Off
  • Dead Sea Mud
  • Fruit Smoothie
  • Chocolate Mud

Nuance Makeup Remover

Finally us girls have a makeup collection that is affordable AND works wonders!!

CVS pharmacy exclusively stocks Nuance by Salma Hayek, a beauty collection offering high quality products within four categories – skincare, cosmetics, haircare and body.

Actress Salma Hayek was inspired by her grandmother, a cosmetologist who would develop her own products at home with remedies she invented. Each Nuance item represents the fusion between old remedies and advanced technology within the beauty world.

“I wanted to create a line of premium beauty products that were both effective and affordable using the ingredients and knowledge passed down to me from my grandmother,” said Hayek. “My partnership with CVS/pharmacy allowed me to be truly involved in every aspect of product development, bringing my vision to life in making a line that is available to all women, who are entitled to preserve their youth no matter what.”

Prices for the products range between $2.99 and $19.99

One of the must-try items from the skincare line that I recommend is the Cucumber & Rosewater Dual Phase Makeup Remover (4.3 fl. oz) $7.99

  • 4 out of 5 stars
  • Floral extracts condition and moisturize, lifting away impurities (even waterproof makeup) and leaving skin beautifully soft.
  • Excellent for all skin types, even sensitive and dry skin. Makeup removal has become easier and hassle free in one step!

Buy this for yourself or gift it this season as fabulous stocking stuffer gifts!
