I know I should be writing more reviews but my days have been so busy with work that by the time I walk into my hotel room I just want to lay down and sleep. Sorry about that..

But on other news, I have lots of makeup stuffs waiting for me for reviews. I have been super excited to get free time.

On Saturday I went to IMATS and enjoyed myself. I walked away with a nice little set of goodies.. So I definitely can't complain. I also took lots of pictures and met 2 of the guys on FaceOff

Review of REN Skin Renewal Peel Mask

Alrighty so I tried this out today. I got a sample of it on suggestion from a girl that worked at Sephora. I wanted to try something different but she was slightly rude so this is what she was willing to do, and I won't complain a free sample is a free sample.

First thing about it is you need to leave it on for 10 minutes. I sat in the living room and read for 10 minutes while I waited.
It smells fruity and not too strong chemically so I liked that. It did burn a bit but not too bad. It did make my skin pretty red, but I know a lot of peels do that.
It's like a sticky yellowish product and it takes a while to get off your face since it is so thick or maybe I put too much on, I was trying not to use too much.

I can't say much about the lasting effects or how well it works in the long run but I can say that right now my skin feels soft and nice and it looks nice a clean.

It smells good, and seems to do a good job.

It is $55 at Sephora. The lady told me she used it for her acne and it really helped. Im still looking for something that will help me.. not that I'm in dire need but I want my skin clear I think everyone feels the same way.

I got this as a sample and I can't say if I'd use it again because I can't use it more then just today since it loses potency after being out of the bottle and in the air. But it came with a recommendation and Sephora has a money back guarantee on everything so if you are like me and trying everything then I would say if you have the extra cash give it a shot if it doesnt work you can always take it back

Makeup Forever Rouge Artist Intense 15

Though the color is kinda light on my hand.. it's not it is a very intense and vibrant purple. It's so very beautiful. All the colors in the MUA4Ever lipstick line looks so pretty. I want to buy them all. I love how rich the colors are.

I liked the best how it comes off so quickly. Of all the lipsticks I swatched on my hand this was the color that came off the easiest. I guess that can be good and bad. If you want long standing staining lipcolor this may not be the one for you. But if you want something you can change up or for a short night out.. Perfect.

Eye Kandii Cosmetics - First Indie makeup review

Today I have the pleasure of showing off some makeup I bought off Etsy.

The shop is I was searching for samples and kits to try out some small companies makeup and start writing about smaller brands and give me the chance to play with things I haven't had the chance to enjoy when I ran across her shop and picked up some samples because I liked the colors. I got a eye shadow sample grab bag that contained baggie samples and a product. Now I'm a sucker for surprises and since I'm wanting to try things I thought why not go this route and let her be my first review.

I got the products really quickly. They were waiting for me after work less then a week after I ordered. I was excited and opened the envelope. To my excitement there were lots of goodies to enjoy. I got a blush, a lip gloss, an eye shadow and samples. Not all the samples are labeled but that's fine by me. I can't wait to try them all. wear it on my lips for a full day.. but trust me that day is coming. :D

So first off we have the lip gloss. It is called Coral Kiss Lip Treatz Vinyl Lip Gloss. I am in love with the color. In the container it looks Neon Pink. If you know how much I love neon you'd be excited too. Here's a swatch of the color. I LOVE IT. It looks like shiny glossy lipstick. It comes off clean. I like the feeling of it. It feels moisturizing. I haven't gotten the chance to wear it on my lips for a full day.. but trust me that day is coming. :D

Next is the Jelly Bounce Blush in Honey Tan. Right off the bat I know it is far to dark for me as a blush. The color is almost a bronze color, very pretty. It seems to dry quickly so I can't use it as a eye shadow which I sometimes do with blush. I use everything for everything, lol.. but I might use it as a highlighter for myself. It has a nice creamy texture and feels soft going on. I really like it. The container I got is 20g and contains Vitamin A and E. So I like it and will find a use for it for sure. Not the best picture.

Next up is the eye shadow I got. The color is green and it is called Mojito. I already like it. LOL. The jar is completely full glad I didnt have it tipped when opening.. Haha. I'm bad about that. The color going on is a light shimmery green (dry) or a more neon looking light green over primer. (I used Elf eyelid primer.) The picture on top is the primed eye shadow and the bottom is the dry eyeshadow by itself.

I'm not going to do the samples today. Since I don't have any mini ziploc baggies to put them in once I cut them, so there will be another post on them.

Over all I am extremely pleased with what I purchased and I can see more eye shadow and lip vinyl in my future. I can't wait to try other colors out.

So go over and check out her shop, it's worth the money and you are helping someone pays bills and thats a good thing :)

Murad Clarifying Cleanser

Today for the first time I used the Murad Clarifying Cleanser. I like it. I will continue to use it to see how well it works but I like the smell not too strong and the way it frothes up on your skin when you rub it on.

So its a great product with not so harsh chemicals made to clear up and brighten skin. Right now my face feels soft and nice. It didn't leave my skin feeling tight or dry, so far it's good to me.

I'd say give it a try, so far I like the way my skin is feeling.

Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion

Tonight after using Murad's Clarifying Cleanser, I followed it up with Murad's skin perfecting lotion.

Its a moisturizer and acne treatment in one. It feels soft on the skin and doesn't clog pores. I like it so far.

It's recommended to use twice daily, so I'm trying. Anything to make me better looking.

Bumble and Bumble Creme De Coco Conditioner

I love this conditioner. I only use it every once in a while cause my hair sadly very oily so I can't use it too often cause it makes my hair worse. But I use it like once a week and it makes my hair soft and beautiful.

It's very rich and smells like coconut. I love that. It smells really good and fruity so the bathroom always smells nice. I like that in hair products when you can still smell it throughout the day makes me smile. I like it to because it reminds me of the leave in conditioner my favorite hair salon lady uses.

I love Bumble and Bumble products. They always work well, smell good and though they are a bit pricy they are worth it.

Freemans Anti Stress Mask Dead Sea Minerals Review

I have been meaning to try this for a while and as I type this I actually have the mask on my face. There will be photos. I bought this one in particular because I constantly stress out and seeing how it says Anti-Stress.. I thought I'd give it a whirl :) First impressions I open and squeeze out product and its BLUE.. and I mean blue.. like I look like an avatar blue.. and it is thick in consistency. So I rub it across my face making sure not to get it in my eyes like the bottle tells me. It feels cold against my skin. Now its been like 10 minutes and I think it has mostly dried, my skin feels tight because it dried making me unable to really talk or laugh. But it feels interesting against my skin. I am going to go wash it off now. Be back in a moment . Here is a picture of it on.
Here is a picture afterwards.
Now it is off my skin. My skin feels refreshed and it is nice to be able laugh and smile again. The cool thing is though it was dried the moment water hit it, it became just as it had started and washes off pretty easy. My skin feels clean. I like the way it feels after taking it off I will be using it again. So now information on the product. The company never tests on animals. The one I bought comes in a 6 fl oz bottle for $3.99 at your local drugstore or walmart, target. This one states it purifies and cleans pores. It absorbs oil. I really need that. I tend to have an oily t zone. The Anti Stress Mask - Dead Sea Minerals uses Sea Salt, Lavender and Beragmot to make for a calming and relaxing experience. Check out this product. I really like it.
