You can connect with  Sheer Cover on their social media sites including : facebook,youtube, twitter,pinterest and google circles. 
 To order you can call 877-859-8901 or from their website: www.sheercover.com They have different kits you can chose and customize.

my skin is all over the place, my skin is dry and oily in places, my cheeks are red and sensitive, i have big pores (yay) uneven skin tone, i think i have every unwanted skin problem LOL.

The past few days my cheeks have been very sensitive but you can tell the perfect shade mineral foundation covered the red spots up perfectly. My shade was a bit light on me I'm usually classic or ivory next time i will order nude instead of frost. 
Remember the trick i was talking about in the first picture? In the brochure that came with my kit it said you can mix the mineral foundation with your moisturizer so i tried it and it worked really well. then i used the mineral foundation by itself as a powder and i like how it came out. I will say when my skin is as sensitive as it has been the past few days the kabuki brush i received seemed to be too rough for my cheeks which irritated me even more so i used another kabuki brush i already had that was softer for my cheeks. 
This foundation is easy to use and blend. I seen a travel brush with a tube you can put the mineral foundation in. You turn the brush facing down and it puts the foundation in your brush for you. I think i would like that better. It would save you time and if you're messy like me it'll cut down on fall out .

The sun-kissed bronzing minerals is really pretty and it also has a highlight in it. I love how easy and smooth it goes on.
The lengthening mascara plus extending fibers was my most favorite part of this kit. It seems like the older i get the thinner and shorter my lashes are becoming. The mascara and fibers made my lashes so long and thick people ask me if I'm wearing false lashes. 
This was only one thin coat of each. This stuff is awesome and cheaper than other brands i have seen online.

The concealer and primer work really well. i use both every day. The concealer trio makes me look fresh and well rested which is  great when i work nights, since i am very fair skinned under my eye gets dark really easily

All in all i loved everything the only thing i had a problem with was the kabuki brush the past few days only on my cheeks.

Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara Review and how to

If you haven't heard already Rimmel London has released a new mascara this month called Scandaleyes Retro Glam.
I received my mascara complimentary from Influenster in my Rose VoxBox it retails for 5.99. What a great price right!!

Okay so Ive been using this mascara for almost a month now and I'm really loving it. Most drug store mascaras have heavy,flaky,clumpy formulas I cannot tell you how many bottles of mascara I have thrown away not to mention I paid well about 5.99 for them also.

Rimmel Londons Scandaleyes Retro Glam doesn't weight my lashes down and it has a BIG wand which I love! The bigger the mascara bottle and wand the better for me! I always find that a big wand really lifts my lashes up high and Rimmel Londons hour glass shaped wand is perfect! It reaches the middle of my lashes perfectly which is a trouble spot for my lashes and it doesn't clump which is a big thing that i look for in my mascaras.

okay so i am going to tell you how i achieved my 
own eye-conic 60s look inspired by Georgia May Jagger.
First i primed my eyes and put a little on my eyebrows then placed tape on the sides of both of my eyes.

I started off with a black matte eyeshadow in the middle and cut my crease first then i added a grayish sort of shimmery shadow to my lid  and high lighted my brow bone.For the bottom of my eyes i used a flat brush and swiped that black matte shadow and smudged it.  For the lashes (my favorite!) i curled my lashes and applied Rimmel Londons Scanadaleyes Mascara. I used the middle to lengthen the middle of my lashes which are my trouble spot. I kind of wiggle the wand at the base of my lashes then comb them with the mascara wand until they reach the desired length. I was so excited because i didn't have to curl my lashes again after applying my mascara.
I finished off with a soft pink blush and a nude lip
Of course my look doesn't compare to Georgia May Jaggers but it was fun trying to recreate it.

I hope you enjoyed this blog because i have had so much fun testing this mascara  and don't forget to check it out for yourself it hit shelves this November! Make sure you have long sultry lashes for the holidays or give them as stocking stuffers.

Happy Holidays! 
XOXO,

Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

Hi lovelies! So I'm suuuuper excited to tell you about a product i received complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

It is the StayMatte Liquid Mousse foundation.
So, I have tried so many foundations over the years the number 1 problem i always have is the color. I am so light with pink cheeks that even the lightest color is either too light or the second one up is like grey-ish looking. No one wants to look dirty when wearing makeup right?

I was so happy and surprised how well that this foundation matched my skin. I chose the 100 Ivory. It comes out thick but super fluffy and airy, if that makes sense.. you would have to try it to know what I'm talking about. It was really easy to blend, felt really light almost like it wasn't there to be honest. It dries to a smooth matte finish and the best part it isn't greasy or sticky after you apply it. To further test it i did not set it with any powder and...... it lasted all day and my face wasn't greasy at all!

Now another problem i have as stated above is the stickiness when it dries. I absolutely hate that! it ruins my powder, my face looks and feels nasty and i feel like my skin cant breathe. I was really impressed with how light this was compared to my 10 bottles of foundation i have in my makeup box, seriously.

I vined my StayMatte foundation routine i will insert it for you to see. See my StayMatte Vine Here
Sorry but it wouldn't let me insert it for some reason.

This was my box . Also i really loved the packaging the tube also has a matte finish and i really liked the purple cap super cute.
This foundation can be found at your local drug stores or Target , Walmart etc.I suggest you go out and try it, its honestly a really great product and at a great price.
One more thing that i almost forgot. When i was researching on what shade i should get i read reviews saying that this foundation dries orange or something. I had NO problem with this and I've been wearing it pretty much everyday. I'm thinking maybe they were not getting their colors right maybe?
If you have any questions comment below, I always respond and id love to hear what you think.

Have you tried this foundation yet? What foundation do you use?
or Share a story about your foundation funny,embarrassing or whatever :)

Thanks for reading and have a Happy and safe Thanksgiving !
XOXOXO,

Lysol® Power & Free™ review


i received these products and coupons for bzzagent

Before i started using lysol i used bleach for everything. I really like that these products (the spray and wipes) work just as well as bleach but without the harsh fumes. I used the multi purpose spray on everything. I cleaned my bathtub/shower  and it cut throughout the grease my husband leaves behind after a long day at work. unlike other brands lysol power and free doesn't leave soapy residue behind when cleaning counter tops,stoves and tables.

i also use it to sanitize many parts of my home. This cleaner really comes in handy with my son starting school and the flu is already starting to spread. You will not be disappointed

    Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics

    I have another great product to share with you. I also received it from influenster for testing purposes.

    Goody Ouchless Ribbon ElasticsI received this pack of goody ribbon elastics. I was excited to get these because my friend Maria (heyyy maria!) sent me some of these in one of our beauty swap boxes and I used them so much they ended up stretching out and breaking but now I have 5 more!! I'm wearing one right now, i decided to tweet a pic for you I'll post it below
    Embedded image permalink
    What i really love about these is that you can wear your hair up and when you take it down you don't get that ugly crease that other hair ties give you. If you can braid (which i can't) these ribbon elastics look really cute on the end of your braid.
    Today I rocked a high pony while going to the library
