Cailyn Gelux Eyebrow

Aloha Readers!

Its the week of Thanksgiving and boy is it cold outside on the East Coast! I know its been a minute since I have left a review but don't think for a second I have forgotten. I have been busy testing a few products at a time and I know its the holiday season and we all want to look great when visiting with family we may have not see all year. I have brought you something that will help you out in just a few short seconds literally it will look like you got an eyebrow lift!

I recently discovered Cailyn Cosmetics and upon this I decided to buy online there Gelux Eyebrow in Hazelnut and some tinted lip balm (review to come in the coming weeks). The Gelux Eyebrow comes with a built in brush which is great because its all in one convenient place.  The Cailyn Gelux is so great better than any pencil or powder out there. The application is so easy and the gel formula finds every little eyebrow hair you have and clings to it. Everyone knows how important our eyebrows are. They frame our face and can even age us if not done properly so for years now we have all plucked or waxed and sometimes over doing it. When that happened we grabbed a eyebrow pencil or powder and tried to correct it or some of us just want to make our brows look even better.  Needless to say I have always found pencils to appear to harsh and over done and powders just dust off in a few hours after application so when I saw this I bought and I love it!

I am not going to rant on because with an eyebrow product I myself need to see the result for myself on myself before I can be happy and my suggestion to you is to buy the Cailyn Gelux Eyebrow for yourself and see the difference of a gel. I GIVE THE CAILYN GELUX EYEBROW (IN HAZELNUT) A 5 $$$$$ FOR BEING A TOP QAULITY EYEBROW GEL THAT LASTS FOR 12 HOURS PLUS AND IS WATER AND SWEAT PROOF. IT ALSO HELP YOUR FACE LOOK FRAMED AND IS AN INSTANT EYELIFT!

Cailyn Gelux is available in a variety of shades and is sold on www.cailyncosmetics.com for $22.00. It is parabon, sulfates, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMO's and triclosan free. Since the Gelux brow is so close to your eyes this is a GREAT thing! It does not irritate which is so important if your like me and have sensitive skin. When asked what I use on my eyebrow I say CAILYN GELUX EYEBROW IS WHATS IN MY BEAUTY BAG!!

JinSOON Nail Polish

Hi Again to all My Readers,

I have been very busy these last few weeks testing multiple products and making notes. I have also been involved in Influenster which is a nation of beauty bloggers and trendsetters who write and share their reviews for the possibility in receiving a free voxbox of goodies. I have now qualified for the fall beauty box called the Violet Voxbox. I am awaiting for it to arrive in the next few weeks so that I can test and review it for all of you. Details on how to become a member are with me so comment and I will give you the details and an invite to the Influenster nation and visit www.influenster.com  Also follow me on Pinterest @ http://www.pinterest.com/seasaltandsand/boards/ to find my Beauty must and bust along with my Influenster board.

Now to the good stuff or what I thought would be good. JinSOON nail polish. I bought this on my quest again for a great nail polish that would last. I must admit I bought it right after I tested and reviewed another polish that wasn't so great but after I tested one that was great (Butter London see review). However, my obsession for great nails gets me every time and I bought way too many bottles of JinSOON include the Blue Iris, Tea Rose and Auspicious to name a few.
Fell quickly out of love with JinSOON's Blue Iris

Unfortunately, at $18 a piece I thought that they would be quality MY MISTAKE! After just three days they had chipped and faded away. I mean they looked great for two days really great and after that it was DOWN HILL! After removing it my nails were brittle and dry. It was really upsetting to get a two day manicure that also DAMAGED my nails that were really healthy before hand! My temtation of these great colors got the best of me but it should not fool you. I will include the photo of  what was a great color (tea rose) but it did the worse damage.
Tea Rose looks great now but it damages nails later!

I give JINSOON NAIL POLISHES 0 $ FOR POOR QUALITY AND FOR DAMAGING NAILS. THE JINSOON NAIL POLISH TEMPTS CONSUMERS WITH BEAUTIFUL COLORS THAT DAMAGE NAILS AFTER JUST THREE DAYS! IF IT WERE NOT FOR THE FACT THAT IT CHIPS ON DAY THREE SOME OF US WOULD KEEP THE POLISH ON AND PROBABLY SUFFER EVEN MORE NAIL DAMAGE THAN THIS POLISH IS WORTH. I bought this awful nail polish on the JinSoon website which I will not promote! Just had to let you know that, that is where I found it!

THIS POLISH IS A WASTE OF HARD EARNED MONEY AND I TOOK IT OUT OF MY BEAUTY BAG ASAP. YOU SHOULD NEVER PUT IT IN YOURS!
Two more polishes that should NEVER be in anyone's Beauty Bag!

Eyeko Curvy Brush Mascara

Hello Again Everyone,

I have been very busy testing several product but I have promised you for a while now a review on the Eyeko Curvy Brush Mascara. I have been wanting to try this mascara for a while now so I took the plunge and bought two. For years I have used a few different mascaras and with all of them I have had to curl my lashes first with an eyelash curler so when I heard and read that the Eyeko brand sold a tube of mascara that curls your lashes while coating them with mascara all in one step I was both excited and skeptical. Nonetheless, I bought two tubes from their website for $19 each. I went for two because I thought that if I loved it I never be without it and if I hated it I could always give the second one to someone for their  own person testing and face it everyone love getting a gift!

Drum roll please.....I LOVE THE MASCARA! It is wonderful. I used it for over a month to make sure it wasn't a fluke but the Eyeko Curvy Brush Mascara does what it says. Just apply it hold it there for a second to curl and BOOM you have mascara coated lashes that are also CURLED!! I was amazed and THRILLED! I have used mascara since middle school and I have always had to have an eyelash curler but I am ditching it now for the first time in years!!

Tiered bristle clusters is designed to define, curl and lift lashes
The formula of this mascara is like no other it conditions your lashes with Keratin and Shea Butter for soft and supple lashes and they are. I can touch them and there is NO CRUNCHY feel which is something we all experience with mascara. It gives you the intense jet black color without smudging or flaking. It is water resistant and get this it lasts! The Eyeko London company claims it last 12 hours but I had it on for 15 hours with no issues!  It comes off when you want it off with any make-up wipe, eye make-up remover or your favorite cleanser. I tried it all to make sure!  I must also mention it is paraben free! I love the tube it comes in. The unique tube is like a toothpaste tube which helps you get every drop of mascara out without waste and the brush is specially designed to grab your lashes and help define, curl and lift them in one step!!

Now I must tell you that EYEKO CURVY BRUSH MASCARA gets a 5 $$$$$ from me for its UNBELIVABLE ABILITY TO CURL AND COAT MY LASHES WITH MASCARA IN ONE EASY STEP WITHOUT HAVING TO USE A EYELASH CURLER, IT IS WATERPROOF AND CONDITIONS EYELASHES WITH KERATINE AND SHEA BUTTER TO KEEP YOUR LASHES HEALTHY AND NOT CRUNCHY!

The unique no waste tube from Eyeko is AMAZING!

I bought this mascara on www.eyeko.com for $19 which is a deal compared to other mascaras that make claims but don't deliver results! I really hope you try this mascara for yourself visit the website and check out the full line of different mascaras to find one that is right for you! Also follow me on PINTREST @ http://www.pinterest.com/seasaltandsand/boards/ you will find out what my Beauty Musts and Busts are!
