[REVIEW] YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick (09 Rose Stiletto & 19 Fuchsia)

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing and review purposes.
All opinions are honest and my own.



QUICK TAKE:  How pretty is the packaging!  My eyeballs can't handle all the beauty.

USAGE TIPS: When I first tried these lipsticks, I applied it straight from the tube.  The lipsticks are very pigmented, so I've found the use of a lip brush was really helpful during application.

THE VERDICT:
These lipsticks are amazing! It has the perfect amount of coverage, hydration, color, and shine.  They also last a long time.  The colors 09 Rose Stiletto & 19 Fuchsia are really beautiful and work really well with my skin tone.  both lipsticks stain my lips a bit, so I don't have to reapply as often.  These are my new holy grail lipsticks and I can't wait to buy more!  It's an expensive product, but it's worth the price tag.

VIDEO: Sprocket Rocket Party Bike Nashville (Birthday Remix)



I thought Sprocket Rocket Party Bike was an extension of the Nashville Pedal Tavern, but I was wrong.  It's so much better!  These party bikes have electric motor assist, club lights, a driver that DJs, and a bartender that takes free photos (DSLR) which are quickly posted on their Facebook page.  

My boyfriend was the one who booked our tour, and I feel terrible for calling it Nashville Pedal Tavern all weekend.  We had a blast with Sprocket Rocket!  Thank you Sam and Meghan!

Twenty-eight

I am 28 years old today.

Where has the time gone?!  Eight years ago, I was laying my bed with eyes full of tears, because I was turning 20.  Time was forcing me to abandon my teen years and I didn't like it one bit.

Twenty.

I'm still learning to accept aging as a part of life and realize that growing older may be good for me.
My first thought today was actually about how lame birthdays are when you're old.  Nothing cool happens when you turn 28.  I'm I allowed to get wasted?  Can I get a minion piƱata?  At least 28 is an even number...odd numbers are the worst.

I'm at stage in my life where everyone around me seems to be pretty monotonous, and I definitely feel that way too.  Drinking and partying has lost most of its appeal.  Responsibilities have grown.  Taste holds new meaning.  Loyalties have changed.  Life has taken place.  I suppose we're at that age where we need to start taking things more seriously, and I'm learning to be okay with that.

There is one aspect of aging that I find very troublesome and that is having to train even harder to maintain my weight.  I'm 120 pounds and would like to stay that way, but my body has its own ideas apparently.  The first time I felt physically old was this past spring/summer.  I couldn't believe how much extra work I had to do in order to prepare myself for bikini season.  Annoying.

Besides the weight issue though, I suppose have very little complaint.  Growing older has offered me a sense of confidence and clarity, and I welcome it.  It feels good to have a better grasp on life and what's ahead.

While I'm 28, I hope to accomplish these 5 goals:
1) Start dental school
2) Reduce my wardrobe by half
3) Be able to do a freaking pull up
4) Help my dad finish his backyard
5) Defend my master's thesis

A lot will transpire in the next 365 days, and I couldn't be more excited.  I just hope to have enough time to share all the news with you guys.  Here's to 28!


Love you all and as always, thank you for your support!
*jenn


P.S. I can't believe that I will turn 30 in 730 days.  Two years feel super short when it's broken down into days.  ahh, why am I thinking about this?!

[REVIEW] Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs in Medium

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing and purposes.
All opinions are honest and my own.



QUICK TAKE: I've always wanted to try this but was never sure if it would be worth the money.

USAGE TIPS:  Let the product fully dry before you put on your clothes or sit on something...the product will transfer if you don't wait long enough.  I usually wait 5-10 minutes.  After that it's water and transfer resistant.

THE VERDICT:  I wasn't sure what shade to get and went with Medium because most of my foundations for my face is in that range.   It was a great match and I love how my legs look with it!

Though I was skeptical at first, I do have to say that I was pleasantly surprised with this product.  It truly is leg makeup or foundation for your legs.  It's comparable to a bb cream in coverage, and I think my legs do look way better with it.  I only have it on my left leg in both photos and my left leg looks tanner and more even in tone.

I don't really like the smell and it lingers on your skin for a while.  I can't quite put my finger on what the scent is...it's almost minty or something.  The smell does go away after an hour or so.

Overall, I think this is a great product for legs.  It gives me a quick tan and it conceals some of my mosquito scars and small spider veins.  It also evens everything out and gives you perfect looking legs for date night or just any night out.  I definitely recommend this product!

Thanks to Influenster, I got $2 off this product with this coupon and you can too: http://bit.ly/1UxwwCW ...go ahead and give this a try!

[REVIEW] Indeed Laboratories Nanoblur

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing and purposes.
All opinions are honest and my own.



video makeup:
YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer (review)
COVERGIRL Outlast Luminous Foundation in 842 Medium Beige (review)
MAYBELLINE Instant Age Rewind Treatment Concealer in Light Pale
ELF Eyebrow Kit in Dark
YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara in 01 High Density Black (review)
Japonesque Velvet Touch Blush in 03
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait
KRYOLAN High Gloss in Toffee
KRYOLAN Cream Highlighter in Cashmere
BENEFIT Hoola Bronzer
INDEED LABS Nanoblur


QUICK TAKE: The package is soOo cute but a bit of a waste.  The box is huge considering how much smaller the tube of product is.

USAGE TIPS:  The product needs to be pat onto the skin gently or else it will disturb your makeup.

THE VERDICT:  Skin perfectors seem to be making its way into the beauty world and this one shouldn't go unnoticed.  I was a bit skeptical at first, but Indeed Laboratories' Nanoblur ($20) exceeded my expectations.  It's easy to apply and can be used in a variety of ways.  It really does blur fine lines and wrinkles and diminish pores.  You can tell when you're applying it, but you can see the difference in photos.  I'm obsessed with how well this cream works, and I appreciate nanotechnology in beauty even more now!  Watch the video to see my full review and demo of this product!

photo ready w/ Nanoblur
Can you tell which half has Nanoblur on it?
