Laura Geller Air Whipped Blush in Whisper Mulberry

ATTENTION WHATS IN YOUR BEAUTY BAG READERS:

Laura Geller has done it yet again. She has created the most delicate blush in the world that has even made me an anti-blush woman a now blush loving women!!

The Laura Geller Air Whipped Blush in the Whisper Mulberry shade that I purchased honestly scared me at first! I have been afraid of blush since I started wearing makeup at the age of 12 which is awhile ago. Everyone has tried to get me to wear blush. People who do my make-up say I have the perfect cheeks for it and I would swat their hand away in fear. I feared blush because I always have had naturally rose red cheeks. I didn't like them so I would cover them and then know that at some point during the day they would show through I NEVER applied blush a step that I just skipped and it came naturally to me after years of avoiding it.

Not until recently when on a whim I decided to pick up Laura Geller's Air Whipped Blush in Whisper Mulberry did I find out what I was really missing. The whipped cream like texture makes it hard to make a mistake. You use your fingers and it just glides on like a delicate soufflé. My gosh I never thought that I would like blush so much and if you feel you went a little heavy just grab the Laura Geller Highlighter from her Eye Elements Baked Eyeshadow & Highlighter Quad I reviewed a little over a week ago and it softens it up! You cannot make a mistake with this Air Whipped Blush. 

Laura Geller Air Whipped Blush

I was in a rush one Saturday morning and I use this blush as a quick eyeshadow! it made me look put together but not over done for running errands before going to the gym. It didn't sweat off and when I got home 5 hours later I still had this ethereal glow to my cheeks and eyelids even though I did a ninety minute spin class. This Laura Geller Air Whipped Blush is a MIRCLE WORKER because if it can turn me into a blush fan than it can get anyone on board. If your are already a blush love then I can GUARANTEE that you have not tried the BEST BLUSH until you try this one.

It must be pretty obvouis that I am going to be giving the LAURA GELLER AIR WHIPPED BLUSH IN WHISPER MULBERRY A 5 $$$$$ ON NOT ONLY ITS ABILITY TO TRANSFORM SOMEONE WHO HAS NEVER WORN BLUSH INTO A BLUSH WOMAN BUT THAT FACT THAT IT IS LIGHTWEIGHT, HIGH QUALITY AND DELICATE TEXTURE MAKES IT MORE THAN A BLUSH! IT CAN EVEN BE EYESHADOW! IT TRANSFORMS YOUR FACE. YOU CANNOT MAKE A MISTAKE AND ITS BUILDABLE!

I found this on www.laurageller.com for $27.00 however be on the lookout for specials and sales from time to time. This blush will last you a long time so price is right! The Blush also comes in two other color options Whisper Rose and Whisper Petal.

When you ask me what blush is in my Beauty Bag? I will say LAURA GELLER AIR WHIPPED BLUSH IN WHISPER MULBERRY!!

Butter London Pop Art Trio

Hello to all my Beautiful Readers,

As promised I have been testing and retesting another set of three nail polishes. These are the Butter London Pop Art Trio. I bought these in search of the perfect nail polish. I was attracted to these because they are a limited edition from Butter London and the colors looked like fun! I like to play with nail polishes so I thought why not give these a try?


Butter London Keks
The first color I decided to try from the Pop Art Collection is the Keks which is described as an opaque, vivid blue crème it is also an new nail color to the Butter London Line. I used is several different ways with a top coat and without and I had found that this pop of color was excellent it lasted either way for about 5 days before chipping or fading which for me is pretty great since an average work week is 5 days! the only negative was that when I went to remove this nail color it left a blue sheen on my nails like a stain of sorts I hoped that the other colors would not do this.


Butter London Keks and Primrose Hill Picnic
I then tried the Primrose Hill Picnic described an opaque, tropical pink crème and that it is! It honestly seemed a little to bold for me in the bottle but after I applied it I love it! It is beautiful! Surprisingly it actually lasted 6 days for me with a topcoat and 5 days without! But it too left a pink sheen on my nails after removing!




Cheeky Chops by Butter London
I would say that two out of three is a score so far but I tested the third polish from the Pop Art Trio just the same and it was the Cheeky Chops which is described as an opaque, canary-yellow crème and it too was very beautiful! I put it threw the ringer wearing it no matter what the occasion and I love it and found that everyone complimented me on this interesting bold color. I found that it lasted about 5 days with or without the topcoat and it too like the other two in its collection left a sheen on my nails after removing!

While the sheen that all three of the Butter London Pop Art Trio nail polishes left on nails may have annoyed me I cannot say that this is a deal breaker. I give BUTTER LONDON POP ART COLLECTION A 4 $$$$ FOR QUALITY. THEY LASTED FOR AN AVERAGE OF 5 DAYS AND TESTING THREE DIFFERENT COLORS THAT ALL LAST IS RARE! THE FACT THAT THEY ALL THREE LEFT A SHEEN AFTER REMOVING IS ONE OF THE ONLY NEGATIVES WHICH IS WHY THEY DO NOT GET A FIVE. HOWEVER I WILL BE KEEPING THESE AND ADDING MORE IN MY BEAUTY BAG!!

The cost for the Butter London Pop Art Collection is $45 for the trio. I purchased them several weeks ago from www.butterlondon.com I went back to check out more polishes and have realized that they have put this particular trio on what they call "holiday" but I did not want you all to be disappointed so I did some more research and found the same ones for the same price on www.zappos.com I hope you ENJOY them as much as I do!!

Laura Geller Eye Elements Baked Eyeshadow & Highlighter Quad


Laura Geller Eye Elements Baked Eyeshadow & Highlighter Quad this handy little compact has EVERYTHING you need! The shadow I purchased is in the Amethyst Skies and I don't regret it for a second! Let me tell you the Laura Geller baked line is so wonderful it is a creamy delight on your eyelids! The shadow glides on without tugging and the way it blends makes you feel like you are the professional make-up artist you always dreamed to be! I even put it to the real test using it with an under eye primer and without and this shadow performed equally on both! So use an under eye primer or don't if you don't have the time because this was AMAZING!
A Beauty Bag Must Have!
I made the choice of Amethyst Skies because I heard somewhere that purple goes well with blue eyes and they were right it only took me a few different kinds of shadows to land the Laura Geller Eye Elements Baked Eyeshadow & Highlighter Quad. The dark shade seemed scary at first but after playing around and blending I really got the hang of it and the highlighter part of the quad is my new obsession I swept it over my entire lid and honestly that could have been enough for an easy day look but its buildable and it looks fabulous I even took a larger brush and swept the highlight across my cheeks and WOW did it make me glow!!

I think this comes as no surprise but the Laura Geller Eye Elements Baked Eyeshadow & Highlighter Quad in Amethyst Skies gets a 5 $$$$$ FOR ITS HIGH QUILITY PERFORMACE AND THE FACT THAT A LITTLE WILL GO A LONG WAY FOR THE PRICE! IT IS PERFECT FOR ANYONE WITH SENSITIVE EYES AND IT FEELS GREAT ON YOUR EYELIDS WHILE GIVING YOU THAT PROFESSIONAL MAKE-UP ARTIST LOOK!

The price is $38 on www.laurageller.com and it is worth ever dollar!! Don't hesitate buy this one and try the other shades she also has available!

John Masters Organics Vitamin C Anti-Aging Face Serum

Happy Sunday Everyone!

This Sunday I actually have something to be happy about! I am super excited to bring you a product that I actually like! While I must warn that this product is for dry/mature skin so its not really for me I still wanted to try it because I think it is NEVER to early to start thinking about premature aging! If you want to look good and stay looking good for a long time then you have to start early!

With the John Masters Organics Vitamin C Anti-Aging Face Serum I started off slow very slow because my skin is not yet mature. I used it once a day three days out of the week at night for two weeks then I used twice a day three times a weeks from here on out! I am HOOKED! It is light, silky, cooling on the skin and quickly absorbs. Depending on your skin you may use one to two pumps! While other serums that are "organic" sting and burn this one was a pleasant surprise (See Juice Beauty Review Below) . I put it on let it dry for no more that an minute and went on with moisturizer at night or moisturizer, primer and make-up for day! The results are a brighter completion and a healthy glow. Even on the days I did not use the Vitamin C Serum my skin had this ethereal glow to it even without make-up. For me that alone is worth it!


I put this serum threw a three month test and the bottle is just about empty I don't have anything bad to say about. On my quest to find another serum to incorporate into my beauty routine I will go ahead and go on www.johnmasters.com and pick up another. JOHN MASTERS ORGANICS VITAMIN C ANTI-AGING FACE SERUM GET A 5 $$$$$ FROM ME FOR ITS ABILITY TO DELIVER RESULTS FOR ALL SKIN TYPES AND AGES WITHOUT THE STING OF PAIN! THIS IS A BEAUTY BAG MUST HAVE!

A Note: I could only find it on the John Masters Website. The cost for a once bottle is $30.00 but you can enjoy free shipping on all orders in the USA and you can save 10% right now on all orders over $150 when you enter the promo code "JMO" I DONOT KNOW HOW LONG THAT LASTS BUT GRAB A DEAL WHILE YOU CAN!! I will checking out more John Masters Organics products later today!

Julep



Hello Everyone,

On my quest for nail perfection I came across Julep Nail Polish. I was super excited and wanted to give it a try. I grabbed two bottles one called Lacey which had a shimmer finish and the second bottle was called Florence which had a crème finish. The bottles cost $14 each so I had pretty high expectations which may have been my first mistake.
Lacey Julep
Juleps Lacey was a one day wonder!

I started on clean dry nails and opened up Lacey. I not a huge fan of any type of glitter polish because in the past they have been hard to remove this was not the case. After applying it at night waiting for it to dry and going to bed I got up in the morning and started my work day as usual I did nothing out of the ordinary and this polish began to chip and fade!! It only took half the day and my manicure look awful!! I was annoyed but thought that I should still give it a chance I reapplied again and the same thing happened.

However me being me I still gave the Nail Polish Florence a chance because it seemed perfect for an event I was headed off to in a couple of hours. I love it for the neutral color and for the fact that it lasted for that evening but the next day the same thing happed to the Julep Florence as it did to the Julep Lacey. CHIPPED and FADED!!
Julep - Color Treat in the shade Florence - a perfect pale nude
Juleps Lacey was a ONE and DONE!!

Well what can I say I spent $28 for perfection that lasted 18 hours 6 or 7 of which I was sleeping for. Over all, I give the JULEP brand of polish A 2 $$ RATING! IT IS ONLY GOOD FOR ONE DAY SO DON'T EXPECT MORE!! I WILL KEEP THESE FOR THOSE KIND OF MOMENTS! THEY DON'T LAST SO DO NOT BUY JULEP AND GET FOOLED LIKE I DID!

JULEP IS NOT A BEAUTY BAG MUST HAVE!! THE NAIL POLISH QUEST CONTINUES! To find out what is a Beauty Bust and a Beauty Bag Keeper follow me on Pintrest as well. http://www.pinterest.com/seasaltandsand/boards/
