Makeup, fashion, and me.

I absolutely love olive oil. It gets rid of makeup, tastes fabulous on bread, and now it even cleanses my face! I know everyone’s a little skeptical of this, I was too! I mean come on, it oil! But after like a week of research and how my skin failed to break out after I started using it as as a makeup remover, I decided to give it a try.

You don't need a fancy price tag to make your olive oil face wash work it's magic, just rub on a litte bit of extra virgin oil from your local grocier store.

The results are AMAZING. It started clearing up my skin in like 3 days. I’ve even used it as a pimple treater. I put it on at night, rub it in,  and bam, my skin looks 10 times better in the morning. Now there is one problem with olive oil. It tends not to clean my nose at all. It was like the more it cleared up my cheeks and forehead, the more icky my nose got. So how did I solve this? After I wash my face with olive oil I take all of it off and then apply a little bit of rice water to my nose. Problem solved.

Oh, and when you apply the olive oil put it on when your in the shower right after you put conditioner in your hair. Close the shower door and turn it up hot so it steams, that will help open up your pores so the olive oil can really work it’s magic and help it get rid of blackheads.

So look and feel absuloutly radient, with olive oil.

Recently I went to my local CVS and because my old mascara was past it’s prime I decided I’d wing it and buy a new mascara.

Wowza, look at that brush!

Wowza, look at that brush!

From the title I think you can tell what it is was but I’l tell you anyways, it was Maybelline’s The Colossal Volum’ Express.  It was pretty cheap (7.49) so I thought what the hay, extra bonus was the super cute bottle!

After getting home and I putting it on, and the first thing I noticed was that this mascara was BLACK. Like midnight no stars or moon black. So it’s definitely a night mascara. Second thing I noticed was how full and long my lashes were looking, they were huge! The last thing I noticed? The flakes on my lashes and the rub off. At the end of the day I came home to find big smudges under my eyes, so not cool.

Pros-

  • Dramatic, perfect for night.
  • Adds so much volume and length.
  • Smells like… nothing.
  • Cute bottle 😉

Cons-

  • Dramatic, too black for day.
  • Leaves flakes on my lashes.
  • Rubs off easily.
  • Difficult to take off.

*** 3 out of 5 stars.

Should you  buy this product- If you want drama, the Yes.

I love french nails. They just look so professional. But alas, I am not a professional, and find it pretty hard to create my own DIY

With this kit, you can make your own french nails.

french nails. I am in fact, what I like to call nail-polishly-challanged. But I have found a french nail kit that even I find it hard to screw up with.

It’s called the sally hanson 5 minute french nail pen kit, and it’s pretty simple to use. You just paint your nails with base coat, wait until they dry, then use the pen to create the white line, and bam, your done. The pen works pretty well and is really fun to use. Just make sure you don’t have to much polish on the pen, or you lines will get drippy (learned that the hard way, tehe). It’s so much easier then trying to use a nail polish brush to paint the lines, I can’t even count all the hours I’ve used trying to make a french manicure that way.

Pros-

. Works well.

. Pen is just fun to play with. 🙂

. Pen can create other designs as well.

. Easy to use.

Cons-

. The pen is slightly drippy.

. Hard to achieve strait lines.

Hello everybody! I’m very excited to say that I have recently gotten a… (you guessed it!) new computer! You know what that

You see the second design on the sixth line? Thats the design I have on mine.

You see the second design on the fifth line? That's the design I have on mine.

means? More post, more comments, more everything! In case you haven’t noticed, I have been skimping on my posting’s a little bit, but not anymore! Now I have a computer to blog on and I’m very happy. This computer even has it’s own version of windows just for blogging! Ahh, heaven!

I know that I normally don’t reveiw products, but since I just got this cool new gadget I decided that I must. So

I love mine!

I love mine!

 what product am I reviewing? The Neutrogena Wave.

When this product first came out I thought it was definately a scam. But then when my friend bought one a couple months back and loved it, I thought, ‘what the heck, I’ll buy one’. Well yesterday I realized that I still hadn’t bought one so on a spur of the moment desision hopped in my car and headed straight for the closest CVS. 15 minutes and 15 dollars later I had one, and that’s when things started going wrong.

First of all, I couldn’t open the battery door. I know I sound like a moron but I seriously couldn’t open it! After 10 minutes of poking and prodding I finally got it to open. It comes with 1 AA battery so your all set. Once the battery is in put the door back on and make sure it’s closed. Then it says to attach one of the circular pads. But you can put away your glue sticks, this is strictly Velcro. After the pad is on just run the Wave under some tap water and press the on button located in the northern left corner. I know what you’re thinking, “water+electronics= uh oh!” But the Neutrogena Wave is supposedly waterproof. I think you’ll be fine as long as you don’t dunk it under water and remember to clean it out after every use.  Just to warn you, it doesn’t get all soapy like it does in the comercails, but it still works just fine. 

So what’s the verdict? Is it awesome? Bad? Burn-it-then-throw-it-into-outer-space bad? It’s awesome! My skin really was softer and more even! It even got rid of some of my blackheads. I have only used it once, so I will give more check ups to see if it’s still awesome later. 5 stars!

         Pros

  • Pretty.
  • cleans skin well.
  • Smells delicious!
  • Makes skin softer, smoother, etc.
  • Looks cool.
  • Feels cool.
  • Fits nicely in your hand.
  • Relaxing.
  • Reasonably cheap.

         Cons

  • You have to keep buying the cleaning pads.
  • May look too girly for guys (the majority of them are pink).
  • And… well that’s basically it!

***** 5 stars!
