Kylie Cosmetics Velvet Lip Kit Review | Charm & Harmony

It seems like Kylie Cosmetics is coming out with a new product every week lately.  While myself and my wallet are having a hard time keeping up, I have to say I have been impressed with the new products.  I reviewed her highlighters recently, and they were better than I expected.   Now I have a Kylie Cosmetics Velvet Lip Kit Review…

I was planning to do this review of the shades Charm and Harmony, but I new I had to get this post up soon because I wore Charm in my Lip Gloss review intro and outro and I’ve never had so many compliments on a lip color.  In the gloss video I combined Charm with my MAC Soar lip pencil (here is a full review of my best and worst lip pencils).  For this Velvet Review I’m only testing the liquid lipsticks themselves because the Kylie lip pencils are not a favorite of mine.   Here is my full review…

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….

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick Spicy Dupe from the Drugstore

I don’t know about you but I am craving spring in the worst way.  It doesn’t feel like it yet here in New England, but a part of me hopes that if I pretend it’s Spring then it will hurry up and get here (like a “if you build it it will come” kinda thing).  One of my favorite Spring looks is a bright lip, and as much as I love a red pout, sometimes I like to change things up.  I’ve recently had a thing for a bold orange lip.  After seeing the ABH Lip Color in Spicy all over Instagram I knew I had to try it.  Unfortunately the formula is so dry my lips look like a desert when I wear it.  I set out to find that shade in a more comfortable (and affordable) formula… and I think I’ve found it in the Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme in Flame.  So check out my side by side comparison to see a possible Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick Spicy Dupe….

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…

Best Powder Foundations | Try on & Review

Back in the day when I was a teen Starlet-in-Training I tried my first powder foundation.  I don’t remember the brand, but it was from the drugstore, and I hated it.  I threw it away and vowed to never try a powder foundation again.  But with age comes wisdom and open mindedness, so I decided to give them another shot.  So I collected 7 popular brands’ so I could test them out and find the best powder foundations.

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

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

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

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

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?
