Influenster Viva Vox Box – Pure Ice Nail Polish

Influenster sent me two nailpolishes from Pure Ice as part of the Viva Voxbox.

The one I immediately fell in love with is called “It’s Complicated” which is a clear base with multicolored glitter particles ranging in size.

It has a somewhat thick consistency and took three coats to get a relatively uniform look. The part I really enjoyed was how smooth it felt once it dried. One of the things I dislike about most glitter nail polishes is how bumpy my nails feel afterwards. Without a top coat, that wasn’t as much of an issue.

The manicure lasted about a week before it started chipping in large pieces however, I am not sure if this was because I didn’t use a top coat or because I soaked my nails before I painted them.

All in all though, I am pretty happy with the product and will continue to use it! :)

Influenster Viva Voxbox – Vaseline Spray and Go Moisturizer

One of the items I got from Influenster’s Viva Voxbox is Vaseline’s Spray and Go Moisturizer. I have absolutely loved it!

I like to apply my moisturizer as soon as I get out of the shower. Most I need to work as much as I can into my skin and then wipe off any excess. I was expecting to have to do the same thing with this but I was rather impressed! As soon as I sprayed it on and rubbed it in, there was no residue! I could get dressed immediately without having to go through a second process.

Love it!

I’m really excited to try just about everything!  The Shell card is not my cup of tea so that will be going to a friend but outside of that, I can’t wait to start testing! :D

Wordless Wednesday – Pretty Lipstick Day

 

Trans Siberian Orchestra!

One of Kress’s christmas gifts were tickets to Trans Siberian Orchestra here in Austin, Tx on Dec 26th.

For once, my make up came out exactly how I wanted it!


Eyes:
Glamor Doll Eyes Gold Digger - Across entire eye lid
Urban Decay Naked Palette 2 – Tease along the outer v and crease
Urban Decay Naked Palette 2 – Busted along the outer v

Lips:
Trucco Lip Pencil in Cinnamon Stick (discontinued) with a Glazewear lip gloss in Nude Shimmer.

The entire evening was a complete blast!  We met up with my best friend, Robyn, and her husband and son at a local diner called the Brick Oven before heading over to the Frank Erwin Center for the concert. I was so enthralled, I didn’t get a lot of pictures but here are a couple of the best ones I did manage to get.

All in all, it was a fantastic night!

 

Pretty Lipstick Day

This week’s look is quirky and fun! Apparently the proverbial cat who ate the bird look! :D

Eyes:
Liner – Urban Decay Blackout
Mascara: Buxom in Black

Lips: Delux Beauty in Desmond

Meaningful Beauty Crème de Serum VoxBox

My VoxBox came in last week but with the camping trip prep, I completely spaced on posting about it!

IMG_3711

With all the cold and wet during the camping trip, my skin was a wreck. It was incredibly dry, chapped and just in overall poor shape. After I got cleaned up, I put it on and could feel a noticeable difference immediately. I put it on today and my skin continues to feel better. Which is probably the lone highlight of today since not only did I come back with my skin a disaster, I also came home incredibly sick. :(

Anyways, if you would like to learn more about the Crème de Serum, check it out here: http://www.meaningfulbeauty.com/products/products,default,pg.html
If you would like to purchase Meaningful Beauty, check it out here: http://www.meaningfulbeauty.com/select-a-system/order,default,pg.html

 

I received Meaningful Beauty Crème de Serum complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

 

Lipstick of the Day

Courtney and I have decided we need to have another Pretty Lipstick Day. And the day this happens?

Whenever we feel like it! Today, MAC’s Media wanted to come out and play. ;)

Our friend, Robert, had said if she and I had another one, he would join in on the fun! So we’ve thrown down the gauntlet!

And he did it!  LOVE IT!  <3
