Nars *Steven Klein* Collection Review

narsskcollection

Hello there loves!! I do realize that I am a bit late on the game on this, I honestly planned to do this post like a month ago, I put it all in a pile, and no joke forgot about it!! WHAT? Ya, that happened, #makeuphoarderproblems LOL. So, I was organizing, and was SO happy when I found it all yeah, now I can finally start using all of these BEAUTIFUL products from cars, YES girls, YES! This collection was one of the most beautiful, and useable collections that I have seen from nars, when I saw the sneak peaks, and new I wanted it all, okay, yes I was dreaming…… but I knew there were definitely some that were must haves for me! I went ahead and bought the ones that I really wanted, and am SO glad that I did, they are all absolutely amazing, the colors are perfect. My favorite thing about the collection is the super cool packaging, the design is so modern, fun, and full of character, which I love! Were you able to pick up anything from the collection? I know a lot is still available, try finding these on sephora, nordstrom, and the nars website directly, some of these are nordstrom exclusives as well. I highly recommend the eyeshadow single in “stud” it is stunning, and is so unique, the shadow blends magically, and is super pigmented, and buttery, you will love anything from the collection though as I do! Nars quality is simply amazing, it will always be one of my all time favorite brands! I am going to review the items that I purchased from the collection fyi, it was a large collection!

François Nars and Steven Klein come together with design legend Fabien Baron to create an exquisite fantasy played to extremes.
“Steven is an iconic fashion photographer. His work defies the rules of photography—it’s arresting and provocative. It pushes boundaries and elicits a reaction. I like that. He perfectly embodies the spirit of NARS.” —François Nars, Founder & Creative Director

“I’ve always had the highest regard for François’ work. He is the pioneer of moving from one of the greatest makeup artists to creating great makeup. It is super exciting for me to collaborate using my photographs and joining them with his cosmetic genius.” —Steven Klein, Photographer

Walmart Beauty Box WINTER $5 Box

IMG_3694.JPG

Hello there!! 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas holiday! I had a great one, I received the best present our family could ask for, we were surprised with a great visit from my brother, and nephew. I am one of 6, and have 3 nephews as well, so this was so great to have all of us together with our parents, it couldn’t get better than that! It was a happy surprise, I was SO in tears! I took a little break from everything, so I could focus on my family, and work, but hopefully I can get back into the swing of things with the new year! Today I am bringing you the, “Walmart Beauty Box” is a quarterly sample box which is FREE, all you do is just pay $5 for the shipping and handling. It is not my favorite beauty box obviously, but it’s a always a great value, and way to sample out new products that are being launched in the market, that are affordable prices. I have been a subscriber to walmart beauty box for over a year, and really enjoy it! Once you sign up, they automatically withdraw payment, and send you the box, which is nice, I really wish that target beauty box did the same, but oh well, those are definitely harder to come by, and they sell out SO FAST, so when I get this box in the mail, it is always a nice little surprise! If you want a sampling experience for items you can buy at Walmart, this is your box, like I said, it is a great value for what your getting, the coupons alone are worth the price of $5! I also love trying out new products, so this is always fun! Check out the video below for a better look at this box as well!

Influenster Campaign *Silk’n* VoxBox

silk'n.jpg

Hello there everyone!! I hope you are having a wonderful start to your day! I am here today to introduce you to an amazing campaign that I was SO lucky to receive from influenster! If you don’t know what that is, then let’s catch up here, influenster is a website where you sign up for free, (I will post the link here, or I would also be happy to email you an invite!! It is invite only, and I have been a member now for about 2 years, this website I heard about through a friend, and was amazed that you could get free products just for reviewing, and testing them out, it seems to good to be true, but honestly it IS TRUE, it’s that easy! I have received tons of products to review, I have gotten some amazing products to test out, which to me, is so incredibly fun. This campaign was HANDS DOWN the best campaign product review I have ever received from any of the review website companies, (they are all in my links on my blog page if you would like to check them all out) like I said, I feel very lucky to have gotten chosen for this one. This box was only sent to select reviewers, and no you don’t have to be a blogger, or have a youtube channel to sign up to review products, but I will say that your social impact score does play a roll in what you may receive, etc. so if you are active on social media than influenster is for you!! FREE products are always good right? Be sure to check out influenster, it is an amazing website, and company. I have had nothing but wonderful experiences, and products from them! 

This box is a voxbox from influenster (what they call the campaigns) this voxbox is a special one, because of it’s high value, and opportunity. This is the highest value voxbox I have seen since I have joined, so I am definitely thankful that I was picked to try this amazing product, and much needed product from silk’n. I have heard of this brand before, and have always wanted to try, but was skeptical if it would really work, and it is a bit expensive. I was amazed to see that it actually does, what this product is, and does will amaze anyone who tries it! This is a laser hair removal device that you use in the comfort of your own home, that is painless, very convenient, and safe, easy to use as well! You see results sooner, because this is such a powerful, yet compact device, that actually works, and removes your hair by laser! I don’t know any one who wouldn’t want less body hair, it’s a constant hassle, and always grows back, well, this is different because it stops the hair growth at the root, there for using light pulses to stop the hair from coming back! 

My Review:

I received the Silk’n Flash & Go Express complementary from Influenster to test and review, however, all opinions are of my own as always. I will provide my honest review of this new product from Silk’n. I have had the device for two months now, and I have used the product as recommended by the directions. I will admit, I was a bit hesitant, and scared to try it, because I have had laser hair removal on my bikini area (full brazilan), and my armpits. I went to a professional laser hair removal spa, and had 6 treatments, it left me with ZERO results, and the hair came back. The treatments were extremely painful as well, as I am sure you could imagine! I paid a few thousand dollars for my treatments, with little to none results sadly, it was a horrible experience, and wasn’t sure if I was ready for that, but I bit the bullet, turned on the device from silk’n and tried it, and OMG, it wasn’t painful, yes it hurts a little, but if you have had a tattoo, or laser treatments, piercings, etc. you may be used to that type of pain, to me, it wasn’t so bad, more like a pinch, or a rubber band snapping, then once it’s over the pain stops, and you are good to go! It does however, take several treatments to see results, which is common, laser treatments aren’t a one time quick fix, although I wish it was that easy!  I have noticed less growth of hair, however, the hair is not gone completely, and I didn’t expect it to be yet, it takes time like I said, but I am definitely willing to stick in there, and keep trying. My hair is getting softer, and grows in a lot slower, which is a great advantage, another great one, is that you can do it in the privacy of your own home! I definitely recommend this product, because it does truly work, you just have to be patient with it, but it is very easy, and okay weird detail, kinda fun to use, hair be gone right!!! I am using it on the tops of my toes, my underarms, my legs, and bikini area, yep I am going for it all, and really wanted to test, and give this a whirl, so glad I did, loving it so far, I am hoping for better results as time goes by using this device! I am excited to see how great it can be without hair in those annoying areas! 

Go to**www.silkn.com** promo code, “NOHAIR,” for 10% off the Flash&Go Express! The promo code expires January 31st, 2016 so don’t delay if you want to give this a try!
