March 2017 A List & D List | Juvalips Review: Best Lip Plumper?

I’ve never been happier that March is over.  Not that anything all that bad happened in March, but I am desperate for April to bring some Spring.  I’m looking forward to brighter lip colors, floral prints, and outdoor workouts.  I wanted to share the things I’ve been loving this past month, and I realized they are mostly skin care related.  I guess I’m trying to will it to be Spring by prepping my skin for lighter clothing.  I’ve also been a little obsessed with lip care lately and searching for the best lip plumper, and I’ve been trying to be more gentle with my color treated hair.  So here’s what I’ve been loving for the month of March….

How To Top Knot Hair Tutorial for Fine Hair

It’s been a while since I’ve done a hair tutorial, which is odd because I am a trained Cosmetologist… and my hair is usually the first thing people notice about me.  My favorite hair look is long and flowing with glamorous waves.  However, I work out almost everyday, plus some days when I’m running errands I just need a quick updo that will make me look polished but won’t take too much time.  That’s why I’m bringing you this Top Knot Hair Tutorial…

Living Proof Restore Perfecting Spray Launch & Campaign

Announcing the Living Proof Restore Perfecting Spray Launch & Campaign Sponsored By Living Proof

Being a Platinum Blonde Starlet can be hard work.  It takes so much bleaching and styling to achieve the Old Hollywood look I love.  Between my attempts to strip any brassiness from my hair, and my constant styling waves with my curling iron, my hair takes a lot of abuse.  It can feel dull and damaged, forcing me to coat it with silicones, and start a vicious cycle of harsh shampooing to get rid of buildup, and more silicone to get a shine….

Pinning is Glamorous!

Living Proof Restore Perfecting Spray Launch & Campaign

So I was so excited to test out Living Proof’s Restore line for 2 weeks.  I didn’t use any other products in that time, just the Restore Shampoo & Conditioner 2 times a week, the Restore Mask Treatment once a week, and the Restore Instant Repair Lotion after every wash.  I also used their brand new product, the Restore Perfecting Spray after each wash.  It’s the perfect detangler for my straight, fine hair, and adds strength, shines, and smoothness along with heat protection. 

Living Proof took samples of my hair before and after my 2 week test run and looking at my hair under a microscope, you can really see the difference in my hair…

Living Proof Restore Perfecting Spray Launch & Campaign

Thanks to Living Proof I can get the Old Hollywood Glam look I love without the damage I don’t!

The New Secret Fresh Collection & How to Destress After a Stressful Day

This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com on behalf of the Secret Fresh Collection, Fade-Resistant Scent Technology, and Secret Fresh Scents Deodorant

One of the most important things that an Everyday Starlet can do is find a signature scent.  One that defines your personality and personal style.  It can be a long and time consuming process.  However, did you know that your nose can grow accustomed to your favorite scents?  Whether it be your signature perfume, your favorite scented candle, or even your deodorant…

Pinning is Glamorous!

The New Secret Fresh Collection & How to Destress After a Stressful Day

 

Secret has decided to take on nose blindness head on.  After extensive research, they have discovered that 70% of women switch deodorants because they believe they are not as effective because they don’t smell them as well as they did when they started using them. 

That’s why Secret has launched its Fresh Collection with Fade Resistant Scent Technology, to combat nose-blindness and they are designed to keep you fresh for up to 48 hours. The sweat-activated technology is meant to capture odor and release fragrance. Because you work hard, your deodorant should too!

The new Secret Fresh Collection includes scents in both Clear Gel and Invisible Solid forms – with a brand new Cool Waterlily fragrance designed to evoke a floral spa-like feeling… so there is bound to be a signature scent that fits your personality. 

.. and because a Starlet’s life is not always glitz & glamour, I have 4 ways to de stress after a difficult day.   

Treat yourself

Do you have a difficult meeting, or really stressful day on the horizon?  Don’t wait for someone to buy you flowers.  Check out FTD and order yourself a bouquet of your favorite flowers to surprise yourself. 

Take it all off

Well, your makeup that is.  As much as I LOVE makeup, some days nothing feels better than removing it.  It signals to your brain that it’s time to unwind and relax.  La Fresh has released there Limited Edition Waterproof Makeup Remover Wipes.  If you’d like to give them a try, get 25% Off First Purchase when you use Coupon Code: BabbleBoxx (Expiration: 4/30).

Take a shower

The New Secret Fresh Collection & How to Destress After a Stressful Day

I love showering at the end of the day.  It really washes my stress away.  I know some women only shave when they think someone may touch their legs, but I shave my legs for me.  Nothing feels quite as luxurious as a freshly shaven leg slipping into silk pajamas.  I have been loving the Tree Hut Bare Moisturizing Shave Oil.  It smells like a beach vacation and helps you get your legs silky smooth… I’m actually on my second bottle!

Try some Essential Oils

The New Secret Fresh Collection & How to Destress After a Stressful Day

Scent can be so powerful.  21 Drops has a Detox Essential Oil Blend that’s a pre-blended solution with distinct essential oils that come together in organic jojoba oil to uniquely treat a particular concern or aspiration. The Detox Essential Oil Blend uses Cardamom, Geranium, Juniper, and Lavender for a relaxing and purifying combination.

How do you destress after a difficult day?

Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream: A New Favorite From A Trusted Friend

I’d like to introduce you to the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream: A New Favorite From A Trusted Friend

Pinning is Glamorous!

Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream: A New Favorite From A Trusted Friend

Like many other people, my teen years were.. well, let’s just say awkward.  I suffered from acne, and even though I realize now that most other teens were also, at the time it felt like it was just happening to me.  While teens nowadays have more access than ever to department stores and beauty shops, back then the drugstore was the place to find your skin care.

Neutrogena has always been a skin care brand name that I associate with being a big help during my acne years. 

But now I’m getting older and my skin concerns are different.  Okay, I do still get acne, but I also want my skin to stay firm and I want to prevent those dreaded wrinkles. 

Enter a new favorite from a trusted friend….

Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream: A New Favorite From A Trusted Friend

Neutrogena has just introduced their Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream.  With it’s sleek packaging, this retinol product is designed to leave skin fresh, nourished, and plumped. 

Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream: A New Favorite From A Trusted Friend

Neutrogena designed this cream for people of all skin types, even those who have never used a retinol before. 

The Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream is designed so that you will see results in as little as one week.  So you’ll be feeling like a teenage again in no time…. hopefully without the awkwardness!

Plumping Collagen Lip Masks: Are They Worth the Hype?

When you’re a red lipstick addict like me you need to pay extra attention to your lips.  That’s why I’m always excited for new lip products that promise the perfect pout.  So when plumping collagen lip masks started trending on Instagram and Snapchat I had to check them out and see if they were worth the hype…

Pinning is Glamorous!

Plumping Collagen Lip Masks: Are They Worth the Hype?

Lip plumping masks are basically sheet masks for your lips that typically look like kiss prints.  Your standard lip plumpers are usually like a gloss that you apply to your lips and contain an irritant, like cinnamon or pepper, that makes the lips swell.  However, these lip masks work more like a major boost of hydration to make the lips look fuller, usually containing collagen and other anti aging ingredients.  I found 4 popular ones (including a Lady Gaga favorite) and tested each one to see which one, if any, are worth your money.  Here are the results…

Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector Review

If you’ve been following along with Everyday Starlet then you know how much I love a great drugstore dupe.  However, sometimes a Starlet just needs to go high end.  So after I did a drugstore dupe version of the Kylie Jenner Snapchat Makeup Tutorial, I had a desire to try some of her favorite high end makeup products.  The one that had me the most curious was the Urban Decay “primer” that she mixed into her foundation.  So I decided to give it a try!  Here is my Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector Review….

Kylie Jenner Bronze Palette Holiday Glam Makeup Look & Review

I’ve teamed up with a group of YouTubers in the Beauty and the Vlog Facebook Group for a fun video collab.  The theme is Holiday Glam.  After ordering some Kylie Cosmetics makeup and playing around with it I decided to do a Holiday Glam makeup look using the Kylie Jenner Bronze Palette and inspired by a photo of her wearing her Mary Jo K lip kit….

Pinning is Glamorous!

Kylie Jenner Bronze Palette Holiday Glam Makeup Look & Review

I already did a makeup look with Kylie’s new Burgundy palette, so I really wanted to show off her original Bronze palette because I think it’s a much better palette for everyday looks.

I used some of Kylie’s favorite makeup products in this look, but I did a whole video of drugstore dupes of her snapchat makeup look if you would like more affordable options.

I finished the look with the Kyliner in black and the Kylie Lip Kit in Mary Jo K, which I believe is inspired by her grandmother.  It’s such a beautiful classic red.

Here is the tutorial and mini reviews…
