imPress Manicure

imPress manicure gives you the convenience of a quick to apply manicure without the mess or dry time. As an aunt that lives with her two year old niece I rarely have time to do my nails let alone have the time for nail art.

imPRESS Manicure nails come in all looks of nail art from casual to blinged out. With quick and easy application these nails are a convenient way for me to keep my “nail game on point” without having to visit a salon or without taking at least 2 hours out of my day to decorate my nails.

Physicians Formula pH Powder and Blush Review

This entry is part 5 of 6 in the series Makeup Reviews

I have never heard of these products and was intrigued when I found these pH adjusting face products while I was shopping this weekend. The package suggests to apply these products on a dry face after moisturizing for best results. Wait 60 seconds and the powder will adjust its’ color depending on your skin’s pH.

Valentia Even Glow Vitamin C Serum Review

Valentia Even Glow Vitamin C Serum claims to repair skin by evening out the skin tone. The product is made up of 98 % natural ingredients, containing a base of 20% Vitamin C.

“Our Even Glow Serum will repair, refresh, and renew your skin; restoring evenness to your complexion, giving you an extra boost of confidence each time you look in the mirror.” (valentiaskincare.com)

Naturally Vitamin C is a skin brightener. Thus one would expect this product to tone down the redness in one’s skin through using this product.

The Face Shop Aura Color Control Cream Review

This entry is part 4 of 6 in the series Makeup Reviews

The Face Shop Aura Color Control cream claims to provide wrinkle care, whitening, and sun protection.

After testing out the sample I received from The Face Shop I can not say much about the wrinkle care after using the product only once. However the sun protection and whitening was there.

In my opinion this is the best CC Cream I have ever used. I have only used American CC creams so I can not compare this CC Cream to any brands from different countries. However, as soon as I applied this product to my face it covered up redness and made my face color match my body color.

Instant whitening and color correction. Product is applied to left side of face.

Radha Beauty Products Eye Gel Review

This entry is part 2 of 4 in the series Product Reviews


“You are never too young to begin skin care” seems to be the family motto for the women in my family at this moment. With four women living in the same house hold we have tried practically every product on the market. When I came across the opportunity to review Radha Beauty Intensive Youth Eye Gel I was more than eager to review this product.

I received the Eye Gel from Radha Beauty for free to review through Brand Backer. Along with the eye gel I was provided the Vitamin C Serum and the “Miracle” Retinol Moisturizer. I am familiar with these types of products due to my family’s* obsession with Korean Skin Care products, however I was intrigued by the affordable price point that these quality products are sold for.

*(Side note: You are never too young to begin skin care. My 16 year old younger sibling has a 12 step skin care routine that she completes every morning and night.)

I bought this coffee as a quick drink that I was not expecting to taste great. After the first sip I was hooked. The taste is amazing and the calories are not that high.

The flavor I chose was Mocha con Choco there was a creamy chocolate taste along with the taste of coffee.

Aritaum Baby Face Mist Review

This entry is part 3 of 6 in the series Makeup Reviews

One of the many cosmetic stores I frequent is Amore also known as Amore Pacific. This store sells cosmetics and beauty items from brands such as IOPE, Laneige and Aritaum just to name a few.

I am a member of the rewards program and have earned $10 off my next purchase so be on the look out for a new beauty post.

I picked up the Baby Face Mist from Aritaum due to the fact that I have practically used up all of my sister’s facial mist.

Facial mist great for hydration on the go or for setting makeup.

January 2015 QBox

This entry is part 4 of 4 in the series Subscription Boxes

Happy New Year! What better way to begin the new year than to unbox subscription boxes?? Upon returning from visiting family my January QBox arrived and inside were some cute items that will be very useful this year.

First item was this paper doll calendar. The calendar is a cute pocket size easy for transporting and small enough to not take up a lot of space on your desk. I love the fashion of the children in this calendar and will be using this all year long.

Second item was a Krayola Crayon Stylus. Mine was in pink and it is about the size and width of jumbo crayons. This stylus is just the right size to not get lost in my bag. I always lose any stylus I buy or misplace it simply because of the size.

Third item Missha zodiac sign lotion. Mine was a lion and in the scent of lemon. The smell is compatible to a lemon scent from Bath and Body Works, it is a light scent that is not over powering. The lotion is a medium consistency, not thick and definitely is not runny. This lotion is not greasy and is a great size for my purse.
