Review: Aveeno Ultra-Calming Makeup Remover Wipes

Thanks to Klout I was able to try out Aveeno Active Naturals Ultra-Calming Makeup Removing Wipes.  Aveeno is a great product to use if you have sensitive skin.  I have been using their products ever since my son was born, due to his eczema prone skin. Not to mention hubs and I have slightly sensitive skin.  So some of the Aveeno products could be found around the house.
Discovering that they have developed a makeup remover wipe, I was intrigued by it and wanted to try it.  Once again thanks to Klout for allowing it to happen.


Uh-Oh! FiS on Sinful Colors and New York Colors

So before everyone starts doing a bitchy fit over the product, please understand we are all entitled in our own opinions.  Despite the controversy, IN WHICH Revlon has apologized for and is currently working with the bloggers it had occurred to, I still like the nail polish.  Though it upsets me they did so, I am glad they are resolving the issue.
Sinful Colors is just a nicely priced product that goes for $1.99.  So when it's on sale for just $0.99, I have to grab some!  With that said...
I also included  the two New York Color nail polishes I picked up when Rite-Aid was having the sale of 40% off all New York Color products.
Every thing is listed left to right:
New York Color Expert Last Nail Polish:
  • Green Means Go
  • Flash of Pink
Sinful Colors:
  • Happy Ending
  • Vacation Time
  • Lavender
  • Ocean Side
  • Clementine
  • Slate
  • Rain Storm
  • Citrine
  • Timbleberry
So there is my little haul of polishes over the weekend.  I had to buy Happy Ending again since that was the bottle that had broke awhile back.

Did you pick up any polishes during Walgreens' 99cents Sinful Colors sale?  What is your favorite color from them?


Into the Influenster Summer VoxBox Abyss!

I mentioned this box awhile ago, so I decided to take a closer look into the wonderful Summer VoxBox from the company Influenster.  For details of what Influenster is you could check my previous post HERE.
After testing out the goodies I got for review, I realized that the VoxBox was still a great thing to get especially since it was free.
When my husband handed me the package when we were in the car, I quickly opened it, and was surprised by everything that was inside.  Above is a picture of when I opened it during my car ride.


Nail Polish: Sinful Colors Leap Flog

I finally gave in and decided to grab this shade from Sinful Colors.  I honestly thought the name was Leap Frog, and not Flog.  At that moment, I couldn't remember exactly the meaning of flog.
Flog Definition:
  1. Beat (someone) with a whip or stick to punish or torture them: "the stolen horses will be returned and the thieves flogged".
  2. Promote or talk about (something) repetitively or at excessive length.
**Defintion VIA Dictionary.com
Pretty interesting for a name.  
The shade is more of a dusty forest green sort of shade to me.  This nail polish is crazy lol.  There are times where it looks more darker and yet paler in forest green.
My only issue with it is, it seems sort of patchy to me after 2 coats.  There were parts on my nail where I could still see through it.  So 3 coats would be perfect for it.
Drying time is so and so.  It does not dry quickly.  But overall I am happy with this nail polish and glad that I grabbed it.

Don't forget that this week until Saturday (July 28th), Walgreens will be having a sale on Sinful Colors for 99cents.  So if you love cheapo polishes it's a good grab for your collection.  They have a wide range of colors.

What is your favorite nail polish from Sinful Colors?

Nail Polish: Sinful Colors - Energetic Red

So I bought this awhile back, lol April to be exact, and never mentioned anything about it.  Better late than never right?
Energetic Red was part of their Wow Pop Collection that pictured superhero comic sort of thing.  Supposedly this is also included in their POPtastic Summer collection.


Nail Polish: New York Color Mint Breeze, Golden Glam, & Time Square Tangerine Dream

For the rest of this week til JULY 21st, all New York Color products will be on sale for 40% off.  You also get a $1+UP with your rewards card.  If you do go into Rite-Aid sneak around the cosmetic aisles, just to check if they have any NYC coupons of $0.50 any $1.72 or more purchase.  So even better savings!
This time I had only picked up three nail polishes since I already grabbed some other items during that weekend of other polishes and such.
The bottles for their Expert Last nail polish seem better than their other bottles.

Nail Polish: Color Club - Hot Couture, Magic Attraction, Beyond the Mistletoe, Gingerbread, & Covered in Diamonds

Over the weekend we had gone to Ross and hubs caught eye of a Color Club collection ($7.99 per box).  Of course he quickly ninja-ed it up for me, so that it may be included within my kit.  At first glance I was quickly excited because it said Glitter Vixen.  As we were in line, I was checking online, and realized none of the original EXCEPT for one was in there.  Okay two if you count a dupe!  I am not mad though!  What do you expect from Ross?  Though I would greatly appreciate it that they would avoid doing such things since it fools those who are unsure of the collections.  Just my opinion though!
Here is a picture of how the original Glitter Vixen looks like:
**Taken from Color Club website
And here is what mine looks like:
So off right?  The first and 4th bottle from the left are the same ones.  I thought they were different, but after close inspection they are exactly the same!  So for the other bottle, I will be passing it off to my friend. 


FiSed at the Craft Store

So I forgot to post this, which occurred a few weeks ago.  OPP!  Went to several craft stores:  Hobby Lobby, Joanne's, & Michaels.  Also stopped by several other shops as well.  My hubs and I went into the shops just to look around.  But like always there was some sort of good sale, or a clearance item which caused me to NINJA it!  Also ended up picking some polish up as well.
An air shot of all the goodies I ended up getting.  I went a bit glitter crazy!  Please excuse the bad quality of the pictures.  I took them at night. 


Nail Polish: Cosmetic Arts (no name)

I have seen Cosmetic Arts products before but I have never picked them up.  You could normally find their products at Ross, which is where I have only seen them at.  The polish goes for $1.99 a bottle.  I suggest if you do head to Ross and you see a shade you want, grab it!  Don't think of "I'll wait til next time," because sometimes that item won't be there no more.

Once again there is no name for this shade at all.  The owner of Cosmetic Arts are the same owner for Color Club, which is Forsythe Cosmetic Group.  Makes sense why there is no name sticker upon it.  It would be really helpful if they did have it though.
Within the bottle, it reminded me of a polish that I have seen before, but never grabbed.  Since at that time, I didn't think it was something I would want.  But like they say "Grab a polish for just incase!"

I cracked and FiS! OH MY!

So over the weekend, I had finally cracked!  I have been on a no-buy where I was attempting to finish up some products in order to buy some new ones.  But that was getting me no where haha.  I went into a drugstore to pick up a colored eyeliner, and instead I ended up buying nail polishes, along with some little goodies my son decided to pick up as well.  Gotta love the toss on the counter while mommy is paying!  haha no no!  My kid isn't like that.  He actually asked me if he may get one, and I told him "No, but you could get two."

Okay for the Color Club and Cosmetic Arts nail polishes, I have no clue what the names of it are.  So if you have ANY IDEA at all, let me know!  Either send me an email or make a comment.  I will greatly appreciate it.  I'll post swatches of it soon. 
As for the New York Color I bought them over at Rite-Aid which is currently on sale for 40% off for this week only (July 15 - 21).  Actually it's all the New York Color products at the moment.  Which is great!  If you're lucky your Rite-Aid could have the $0.50 off coupon for NYC cosmetics.  Not to mention $1+up with Rewards card. 
So here are the NYC polishes I picked up:
  • Mint Breeze
  • Golden Glam
  • Times Square Tangerine Creme
So there is my small FiS moment of goodies! 

What did you pick up over the weekend?


Oh nails, Y U SO SHORT?!

So last week I mentioned in my post I mentioned that I had to cut down my nails.  A few have seen these already on my quick shot upon Instagram.  I decided to make an actual post of it. 
It'll take some time to get use to short nails again, but hopefully they speed up in growth like they normally do. 

My July Birchbox!

Birchbox is a wonderful way to try out products from new, and lingering around.  They have different subscriptions that you could pick at for your liking.  And you may cancel at anytime.  It is though a hit and miss.  Sometimes you'll get items, or the whole box, that you won't like, and there are other times where you will simply just love what you get.  From sample sizes to full sizes.  From cosmetics to snacks to perfumes. 

Over the weekend I had received my July Birchbox, and I have to say that this was better than the one I have received last month.  I was hoping to obtain the Eyeko eyeliner, but it didn't happen.  YET I was still happy with what I got.
The cardstock cover on the box I thought looked pretty cool, and could be an inspiration for future products.
Doesn't that box make for a perfect nail gradient scene?  Or maybe even drips...WHO KNOWS!  Gotta love random inspiration of items.


Double slap those nails! But they're done!

First off I would like to say thank you to all of those who follow or check out my blog.  Greatly appreciate it.  Second off, if you do my tutorials, or I give you inspiration please note it.  So I could check it out.  Lately I found two people who actually took my tutorials changed some words in it, but still copied exactly what I did.  :( That sort of ticked me off.  So like I say "Give credit when due!  If someone inspired you to do something, let it be known!"  Though there are times when great minds think alike, which in case high five to you!  But when it's to a T, yeah...that gets my engines going a bit... 

So sorry about that I had to get it off my chest!

Well I have been doing my nails on and off.  Just haven't really been taking pictures of it.  But they have been done!  I'll post two pictures of what I have done lately.


Oh Mail! Oh my! : Influenster Summer Beauty VoxBox

So over the weekend I received my first box from Influenster, which was their summer VoxBox.  If you have not heart of Influenster it's basically a site of trendsetters who could share their lifestyles and show off their influence upon items they received.    You sign up and basically take surveys, which are their badges.  The badges you earn will help them better understand you, and decide what to give you in your personalized box of goodies.  Oh and did I mention it's FREE?  Yup that's right! 
If you qualify for their boxes they will send you an email, that will show you a link in your profile.  You have a certain amount of days to fill out the form.  So my suggestion once you obtain that email, get at it really fast!


Review: DetClear Bright and Peel

DetClear Bright & Peel is made by a Japanese brand called Meishoku.  It comes in two forms a peeling jelly, and a liquid solution.  They have three different kind of scents:  Mixed Fruit, Mixed Berry, and Neutra.
I have been using these products for over a month now and I have them in both forms.  I have the liquid solution in Mixed Fruit, and the peeling jelly in Mixed Berry.

This is based upon mine and my husband's experience on the product.  Yes he does use these as well time to time.  Remember no one's skin are the same, so others may have different out comes.
