Hair Straightening Brush 


Hello loves have you tried a Straightening Brush? I have used a straightener but not the Straightening Brush before.

I received this Apalus Hair Straightening Brush complimentary to review.

What I like about this brush:

  • It has a digital display
  • It is ceramic
  • It is not bulky
  • Easy to use
  • Nice design
  • Does a beautiful job styling the hair

How to use…


To add volume to you hair brush upward. This adds volume at the roots. I angle the brush down to add a bit of a down curl at my ends. This brush is super easy to use and does a fabulous job styling the hair.

You can find this brush on Amazon and it costs around $50. Apalus Hair Straightening Brush Just click the link and it will take you right to it.

All in all I am impressed with this Straightening Brush! I will be putting away my old straightener and using the Apalus from now on.

Winged Eyeliner…Tape It


Look at that wing! How do I get wings so sharp they could cut? Watch the video 😉

 

 

Hello loves. Do you struggle with winged liner? I did….most of the time my wings were lopsided or just disastrous!

I watched multiple videos and I tried using pencil liner, felt tip liner and liquid liner with no avail.

I stumbled across a tip awhile back that using tape helps with making a beautiful wing.  Tape has become my new friend. It definitely helps provide te perfect boundary and guide for your winged liner. So I decided to make a video to share with you on how I use tapefor my winged eyeliner.

As you can see it is quite simple. The Brush I am using to apply the eyeliner is by SimpleGlamGirls these oval brushes have made a world of difference in my makeup application. Use my code bellamj74 to receive 20% off your purchase.

Elf Haul


Hello Beauties. During the week of Black Friday Elf Cosmetics had some fabulous sales with free international shipping. I had to take advantage.

I had just recently tried Elf Cosmetics primer and was impressed with the quality to be so reasonably priced. The only thing I have found is it has an odd odour, but that just may be me because my sense of smell is extremely sensitive. Have any of you beaties found the smell odd?

Since I have been enjoying the primer I decided to give some of their other products a try.

The Packaging:

Elf definitely has the packaging down. It is simple but good quality. On the large eyeshadow palette the packaging is not flimsy (I was expecting a thin plastic package)

The Beautifully Bare all over Face Palette packaging is perfect. It is sleek and travel ready. Slip it into your makeup bag and your ready to go.

The Quality:

I was expecting the quality of the products to be so so. I wasn’t expecting the eyeshadows pigment to be very good and was expecting it to be muted. Well I was in for a pleasant surprise. The colours are beautiful and last. No reaply needed.


I also purchased the baked eyeshadow palette and swatches the colours so you could see how lovely they are. The top row is lighter colours which are perfect for base and highlight. The bottom row has vivid colours that are gorgeous for your crease and under eye.

I hope you enjoyed this post and if you have been wanting to try Elf cosmetics but concerned about the quality, I say give them a try!

Have a fabulous day beauties and I will be posting some looks I created using some of the elf products in a future post.

The Balm and Essence Cosmetics


Hello Beauties ❤️ I am sorry I have been MIA. As mentioned in an earlier post I received some pretty exciting products in my Ipsy October GlamBag. I have had the chance to create an eye look with 2 of the products and I am very pleased with them.


The first product is The Balm Cosmetics Hot Mama Blush. Yes I said blush, but this product is multi use! Two product for the price of one, who doesn’t like that!

The colour is quite nice. It is a pink/peach with a hint of highlight to give your cheeks a glow or your eyes a touch of shimmer. With outstanding pigment Hot Mama last all day. I love that this product is powerful enough to stay but light enough to not crease on the lids.

The second product is Essence Superfine Waterproof Eyeliner.

This is a lovely precision eyeliner. It allows you to create perfect cat eye/winged eye looks. It has a wonderful fine tip and it is waterproof! The price is very reasonable as well at $2.99 this is a must have in your beauty vault.

I hope you enjoyed this post loves! You can follow me on Instagram for makeup looks.

Rose Glow

Hello Beauties, sorry it has been a bit since my last post. Things have been busy around my house. The twins are back in school and our new puppy is settling in. I hope you all are having a wonderful transition from summer to fall. The weather is starting to cool here in Canada and with cooler weather we must pay more attention to our skin. Today I would like to review a facial cleansing product I received in my Ipsy Glam Bag.


I received The Organic Pharmacy Rose Facial Cleanser in my Ipsy bag and it was instant love! It is a nice sample size and especially since it only takes a small amount.

First let me rave about the smell. It smells glorious, I am a huge fan of rose and it definitely doesn’t disappoint in the smell department.

A powerful but gentle cleanser. It cleanses outstandingly, it isn’t a thick lather but you are sure to see the results. It will leave your skin smooth and glowing. Lovelies I recommend this product as a must try.


Now let’s talk about price. It is a bit pricey, but since it only requires a small amount it is worth the investment.


I completely agree with what the company has to say. This product is gentle on the skin, but does a wonderful job cleansing. It only takes a small amount so your bottle will last a while. Your skin will be soft and glowing after cleansing.

All in all I recommend this product and give it an A+.

Have a wonderful weekend Beauties!!! Much love and remember love the skin your in.
